Stayed here for 5 nights on a recent trip to Kauai. Found this place through tripadvisor.com. Wanted something different from the typical big chain hotels. Stayed 3 yrs ago at the Hyatt in Poipu, which was great, but overall enjoyed this stay much better. Stayed in Coco cottage which is a quite cottage off to the side with your own... More

Of the rooms we have stayed in on the Big Island, Maui, and Kauai, our room at the Fern Grotto was definitely our favorite. The room was not only spacious and clean, but also tastefully decorated. For the price, it was a really nice layout. We stayed in the Garden Cottage, which is a standalone structure with a queen bed,... More

Fern Grotto Inn totally exceeded our hopes and expectations. The property is quiet and ideally located, grounds are elegantly landscaped, cottage was beautifully decorated and generously and thoughtfully equipped. It is the perfect anti-resort vibe! Peaceful, secluded, private, with easy access to everything Kauai has to offer. We are already planning our return visit and we never go back to... More

This January we stayed at the Fern Grotto Inn and could not have been more pleased with our choice. The cottages feel like you are transported back to old Hawaii but completely modern and delightful on the inside. The location is perfect! The cottages are located just south of main street Kapa'a so you have the choice of many restaurants... More

We recently stayed in the Canal A cottage. This was our second stay at The Fern Grotto Inn. We had previously stayed in the Garden cottage 3 years prior and had such a wonderful experience we knew we needed to contact Paul again during this stay on Kauai. The cottages are centrally located, easy drive to any of the sites... More

In February Brian and I completed our 4th stay at the Coco Cabana in Kauai. And, as always, we were not disappointed. It is so wonderful to have such a nice place to stay in the lush paradise that is the North Shore of Kauai. Staying at the Coco Cabana is like being in paradise 24/7 since every window you... More

My wife and I stayed at the River Cottage while on Kauai. It was perfect for two people. The cabin was clean. We enjoyed the kitchen, which came fully equipped for cooking our own meals. The use of a washing machine and dryer available to guests was greatly appreciated. We felt free to come and go at our leisure without... More

Picking a place to stay in Kauai isn't easy, theres so many places to choose from, from resorts, to condos to holiday rentals. Fern Grotto Inn was a perfect choice for our honeymoon. The location in Wailua/Kapaa is great if you want to spread your trip around all parts of the island - nothing is more than 45-60 minutes away... More

My husband and I and another couple just returned from spending a week at Ohana House and we thoroughly enjoyed our time spent in this lovely home. Paul welcomed us in, and he is a very kind man who provided us with various bits of information that made our stay in Kauai all the better. The kitchen was extremely well... More

What a wonderful stay at Fern Grotto's 'Ohana House' - a beautifully restored 1940's home with more than enough room for a family of 6 and everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We arrived early (well before check-in time) and were greeted by friendly, helpful cleaning staff who stowed our bags while we went exploring. The yard & gardens... More
