We stayed in the Coco Cottage for part of our honeymoon and loved it. The cottage was stocked with everything we needed during our stay. We went to the fish market in Kilauea and bought fresh fish to cook at home, there was ample cooking tools and spices. It was nice to lounge in the hammock, use the kayak in... More

The garden cottage was adorable, well-located, and stocked appropriately for an east Kauai stay. The bed was beyond comfortable and the stone shower was used often. The grounds are tiptop and the staff was delightful. We will stay at this cottage again and highly recommend it to any single or couple.

My new husband and I stayed at the Fern Grotto Inn River Cottage as part of our honeymoon, and we had the best time! The house was immaculate and everyone who greeted us was so friendly. The available gear (snorkling, boogie boarding, kayak) was ready to use and the inn buts up against the Wailua river. There is also fresh... More

We stayed by the Coco cottage in august for 5 days. The cottage is cozy, well manteined, and very large and comfortable. Good privacy, you don't need even to close the shutters. Paul welcomed us with 3 juicy mangos at our arrival, and the description of the trees welcomed us even more! You can use the picker to pick the... More

One of the highlights of our honeymoon was the last day, when we decided to read the more negative comments about the really lovely and wonderful Fern Grotto Inn. By way of disclosure, I should state my personal belief that the majority of online review/survey initiatives have the aim of mining free marketing from clients, in exchange for flattering clients'...

Paul has a great location and is extremely friendly. The houses and cottages are well equipped with kitchens and comfortable beds. Additionally, the fruit trees and their product are a bonus as well as the activities equipment (snorkel, kayak, boogie board, coolers, beach mats, etc...) for free is great.

My husband and I just returned from our Hawaii vacation. We stayed at Fern Grotto Inn. We both loved it! We stayed in the River Cabin which was nicely kept yet had a very down to earth comfortable feel. It was well stocked with little necessities which are easy to forget, or annoying to have to purchase to use for... More

For our honeymoon we stayed in the Garden Cottage, and could not have been happier with it! The pictures on the website haven't been updated as of June 2014, and don't show the moderately small flatscreen TV, larger bed, and added kitchen counter space and stools. For checking in, we just told the owner Paul when we were arriving, and... More

My husband and I just returned from a week's stay in the Garden Cottage.The Garden Cottage is beautiful, had everything we could have wanted, and is super well-maintained. While the pictures on the website don't show it, it now has a kitchen sink and bar to sit at. The kitchenette was well-stocked with dishes and utensils. The double-headed shower was... More

We had such a great time staying here. It was reccomended to us by friends and did not disappoint. The room was clean and had all the amenities of a big hotel, but had a style that made it more comfortable. We used the kayak to paddle around the river and get to the Secret Falls hike. Then we took... More
