I wish I could give 4.5 stars. We stayed at the Garden Cottage and enjoyed the space and the amenities. Great sheets, bed, towels and almost everything we needed. Access to kayaks and bikes were great and the cottage has a great view of the river. Paul was great and very gracious. The location is a little close to the... More

This place was truly excellent. The cottage we stayed in [Garden Cottage] was fantastic. It was really nicely decorated, and was very clean. The bed was so comfortable that we asked our host Paul what the brand was and where he got it! The kitchenette was more than enough to make breakfasts and lunches, and we even cooked a few... More

Fern Grotto is a great alternative for travellers who don't want to be in a condo that limits outdoor access to a balcony. We stayed in River Cottage which is situated like the other units in a lovely garden. Windows on all sides made it perfect for breakfast in bed and at night we sat in the garden by candle... More

Stayed in the River Cottage at the Fern Grotto Inn for 11 days November, 2014. Set in a private garden setting we found the cottage so comfortable and a perfect home base to explore the Island of Kauai. Each day we chose an east or west direction and then checked out a new beach to find and explore. Aside from... More

Wonderful location. We had rented the Ohana house (there are other cottages on this property), which is really great. Old wood plantage style building, spacious (3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, large, kitchen with a wonderful table, large living room), fully equipped, we missed nothing. Everything clean, tasteful furniture and details. Absolutely great garden, fruits to ear from the trees, kayak to... More

We were enchanted with this well appointed studio cottage. I painted the view from the kitchen window. Comfortable and complete. Compliments to Paul on his attention to detail e.g. working flashlight on the keyring, fresh flowers and fruit from the luscious tropical garden surrounding Fern Grotto Inn. It couldn't have been a better location, secluded yet within walking distance from... More

Really enjoyed the last week at River Cottage. Very relaxed and low key atmosphere. The setup is perfect and fit-out lacks for nothing......lots of cute kitchen touches too. Who needs a crowded hotel or resort condo? We didn't see owner and hardly anyone else either, which suited us fine. Near Kaapa/Lihue which is central to 45 minute drive for North... More

My wife and I have stayed at Fern Grotto for three weeks every January over the last four years and we love it. The various cottages are nestled in a beautiful tropical garden. We have stayed in three different cottages and they are all very comfortable and clean. They are well equipped with everything you might need, including cooking facilities... More

We have visited Kauai twice (so far), and each time we booked our accommodations at Fern Grotto Inn in Cottage Canal B. It is conveniently located in Kapaa, which is an easy drive to go North or South of the island. It is within walking distance to the beach, which is great for early morning swims. Also, Fern Grotto provides... More

This is a wonderful place to stay if you like to cook in for some of your meals and have a nice space to relax in at the end of a day of playing on Kauai. It's a great location as you enter into Kapaa from Lihue. The owners have thought of everything to include that makes your stay more... More
