In October 2013, three families ---- our daughter's (including her husband and two sons, 10 and 12), our son's family (with wife and toddler son), and ourselves (we're grandpa and grandma!) ---- came together from Australia, Minnesota, and Montana to spend a week at the Fern Grotto Inn on Kauai... and it was just great! The Fern Grotto Inn is perfectly, ideally located on the island to provide close access to everything. It's in the middle of it all! We grandparents stayed in the River Cottage... quiet, private, tropical and old-style, yet so very comfy and complete inside. We loved the privacy, the beautiful garden plantings, the seclusion despite being in such a busy area... you'd never know it, it's so green and secluded. It's a perfect place in which to hold a three-family reunion... each with our own private cottages... especially with the no-charge, centrally located on-site washer and dryer. Each Fern Grotto Inn cottage also comes with top quality beach towels... and several "toys" are available for guests to borrow, including a kayak, various bikes, boogie boards, beach coolers, mats, toddler beach toys, two pair of snorkel flippers, several snorkel masks, even a toddler life jacket that our littlest guy used every day. The River Cottage has a complete, full kitchen, good AC, everything a guest could need.... ceiling fans, gas BBQ grills, cordless phone available for calls, Paul, our host, was so friendly and very attentive to our needs. We definitely plan to return!
