We stayed in the Coco Cottage, and loved our time there. Ate breakfast in our private yard, used the (free) kayak for a trip up the Wailua River (the place is right on the river). They also have free use of bicycles, water shoes, boogie boards, coolers, snorkel gear, etc. We picked mangos from their trees for our morning smoothies.... More

We stayed in one of the Canal Cottages for 5 nights and loved it! It was very attractive, clean, comfortable, and quiet. We used one of the kayaks provided(free) to up the river to Fern Grotto then beached it for a hike to Secret Falls - a great jungle adventure. We will stay here again the next time we go... More

My wife, our 1 year daughter and I stayed in Coco Cottage for 8 days. We loved it's Hawaiian chracter interior, private access and parking and our daughter enjoyed swinging in a hemlock located in the garden. Even though there is an air-conditioner we actually never used it as ceiling fans and roof exhaust fans work just as well. Paul,... More

Very tidy and comfortable. A steal for the location and the access to bikes, beach gear, kayak, etc. We loved the cottage - it's on the smaller side but was perfect for us. The cottages are expertly cared for with great attention to detail. Would stay again for sure.

My husband and I just finished our second 10 day stay at the Fern Grotto Inn. Both times we stayed in Canal A. We obviously enjoyed it the first time so we came back. Further improvements had been made which made our second stay even better than the first. Bikes and Kayaks are now provided on site along with everything... More

We could not have stayed in a better location. Fine dining in Kapaa only minutes away. Two full service grocery stores around the corner. What works out to be a nearly private 2-mile stretch of beach less than 10 minutes away (behind the Wailua golf course). If it happens to rain, as it did on our visit a couple of... More

This property is a must for anyone who is looking for a home away from home with... More

We stayed 8 nights in the River Cottage and can't wait to go back. It was such a serene, peaceful place to stay. The yard was incredible, we picked star fruit & mountain apples from the trees, an orchid grew in the mango tree (mangoes weren't ripe in February,) & there were flowers blooming everywhere. The cottage was tastefully decorated... More

An absolute delight! exactly the way we prefer to travel. Cozy, quaint, quiet and few people. Cottage B was the right choice for us (love the lanai). Paul is fantastic and very helpful. You can see that he takes total pride in his little piece of paradise and what he does. We only spent 4 nights, but next year it... More
