Fantastic place to stay! Quiet in lush surroundings on the Wailua River. 100% attention to detail. Upon arrival we received a beautiful floral bouquet and a tasty surprise in the the fridge. Our cottage was equipped with everything from salt & pepper to a fan on the front porch. Everything needed for fun in the sun was available to us.... More

Our stay at Fern Grotto was fantastic!! It was like having our own little home on the island. If you like the luxuries of a 5 star hotel, this is not a place for you. My husband and I enjoyed the privacy and ability to avoid the crowds and busyness that comes with staying at a hotel/resort. Fern Grotto gave... More

What a fabulous place. Centrally located. Beautiful grounds, lovely well-equipped cottage ( Garden Cottage) , and thoughtful attention to detail. The cottage had everything we needed, including a nice set of cooking gear, even a flashlight. We were greeted with flowers and a fridge of treats. Having beach gear ( including coolers and a kayak) provided made activities easy. We... More

We stayed at the Garden Cottage of Fern Grotto Inn while visiting Kauai for the first time. The location was perfect- on the Wailua River which was centrally located from Hanalei Bay and Waimea Canyon, with the beach, play area, and town within walking distance. The cottage was beautifully furnished and very cozy with many amenities that included a coffee... More

We just got back from 2 weeks in Kauai at Fern Grotto Inn and we already can't wait to get back! We arrived late at night and I brought my camping head lamp with me so it was a cinch finding our cabin. We stayed in Canal Cottage B and it was warm and welcoming with our key waiting inside... More

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'...
