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

Talk about a little piece of heaven. We found it! Coco cottage, one of six very private, very special Hawaiian cottages in a beautiful tropical garden setting, is part of the Fern Grotto Inn, where we just spent a delightful week at our own little private Hawaiian resort. Owner, Paul Juma, saw to our every need before we even knew... More

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
