This recently restored plantation home from the 1930's was owned by Ethel and Gaylord Wilcox, a planter family descended from the missionary era. The house is beautifully furnished and depicts plantation life in the pre-WWII era.
Admission to the house is free and it contains some of Kauai's nicest shops and galleries. The plantation offers tours of the grounds and cane fields as well as a horse-drawn carriage ride along the garden paths.
Gaylord's at Kilohana, a fine dining restaurant, is known for its excellent cuisine served in a courtyard restaurant.
The grounds cover 34 acres and a tour by horse carriage takes 20 minutes. Clydesdales (like Budweiser's) pull the carriages from 11am to 6:30pm daily. Call for info.
