This was the perfect stay for our honeymoon! Great location on Kauai for easy travel days to popular beaches and sites, plus Fern Grotto Inn has direct Wailua River access for kayaking to the “secret waterfall” hike. All beach gear (chairs, towels, coolers, boogie boards), paddle boards, kayaks, and bikes are included - you literally don’t need to rent anything else to enjoy the island. We stayed in the Garden Cottage, which had an amazing view of the river and was so clean and comfortable. Paul and the staff are so helpful and friendly, they take extremely good care of this little oasis. This far surpassed our expectations and we can’t wait to return someday!
We stayed May 9-13, 2021. All I can say is WoW! Paradise. Plain and simple. We were in the River Cottage. It was unbelievable. The grounds were meticulously kept up. And the Kayaks, OMG...right there on the canal then a short paddle to the river. Everything was a photograph, everywhere you looked. Paul's amenities are nothing short of stupendous. He thought of EVERYTHING! Even had a couple beers in the fridge from a Hawaii brewery. There were even bikes and snorkel gear, beach mats, boogie boards, Paddle Boards all included etc etc etc... We have been married 35 years (our anniversary trip) and the accommodations were as if we were newly weds. A hand written card welcomed us. Again, he thought of everything and we felt like family. We first booked it March 2020 and covid messed things up. Paul was totally flexible all the way till we made it there in May 2021. When we return, we WILL stay again. Just Awesome! Thanks Paul! Keep up the great work! - Mike & Denise…
This was our first trip to Hawaii (Kauai) since the pandemic began. After quarantining for 4 nights, we were excited to begin our planned vacation at the Fern Grotto Inn. Paul was gracious and let us upgrade to the Ohana house, a 3 bedroom original Hawaiian house. It was wonderful. It was nice to have the extra space and the decor was wonderful, in the Hawaiian style. The cottages are wonderful too each decorated with unique touches. They're studios but cozy and delightful. Unfortunately we had some rainy weather but it only made Kauai more beautiful. The sun came out occasionally which we took advantage of by driving the complete island. We managed to use the kayaks on our last day before flying home.
My wife and I stayed at The Fern Grotto Inn Ohana House for a week to celebrate my 40th birthday. Everything exceeded our expectations. Paul keeps his property in amazing shape and he made sure to put extra effort in to make sure we all had the experience of a lifetime. Great location to reach all of the island and we did just that. We absolutely loved this place and highly recommend it.
A very welcoming owner offers wonderful attention to detail and more amenities than anyplace I've stayed on Kauai. Very reasonable in price for what is offered. a bit of road noise in the only thing making this not absolutely perfect.
