    Tropical Garden Cottages—One Block from Beach

    Why stay at Fern Grotto Inn? The reasons are as numerous as our glowing guest reviews. In fact, Fern Grotto Inn recently became the best-rated vacation rental on TripAdvisor and was featured in Lonely Planet—all thanks to our warm hospitality, prime location, and super cute plantation cottages.

    One of the best parts about Fern Grotto Inn is our central location. Why limit yourself to Princeville or Poipu, when you can stay with us and easily drive to both the North and South Shores within 45 minutes?

    For a little outdoor fun, check out our COMPLIMENTARY two-person KAYAK and “his and her” BIKES. The coastal bike trail is only one block from Fern Grotto Inn, and we’re conveniently located right on the Wailua River and of course, there’s plenty to do locally—we’re only one block from the pristine swimming beach at Lydgate Park, and Kapaa’s many stores and restaurants are just a few miles away.

    The real attraction of Fern Grotto Inn is our private vintage plantation cottages. Originally constructed in the 1940's and 1950's, our cottages have been fully renovated with your comfort in mind while still retaining their authentic Hawaiian charm. We’ve outfitted each one with chic but cozy island-inspired decor.

    Our cottages are surrounded by a lush, tropical garden, which, combined with the fact that our property is very quiet, creates the feeling that you’re in old-time Hawaii, far from civilization. It’s the perfect setting for your honeymoon or other romantic getaway.

    Here’s a brief description of the cottage you are booking. For more information and pictures, please visit our website.

    Super clean place with easy access to river for kayaking and paddle boarding. Picked fresh star fruit every morning from tree on the property.

    For our 6 day stay on the island, we wanted to avoid the crowded resort lodging. The owners were extremely responsive, and we had everything we needed. We took advantage of the complementary kayaks to paddle to Secret Falls on our first day. The central location made the drives to all activities less than an hour anywhere on the island. For sunrise, it was a 5 minute walk to Wailua Beach....such a peaceful way to start the day.

    The cabin was everything we hoped it would be. Very clean and lots of flowers and extra touches. Beautiful views of the canal and palm trees. All the windows kept the place cool without having to use the air conditioning. The bed was fabulous. We will be staying here again when we come back to Kauai!! Thanks Paul!

    Mahalo Paul and Sam for a wonderful stay. We had a wonderful stay in Canal A. It felt very private and romantic but at the same time, all the amenities were there. A very special experience!

    This was the first place my girlfriend and I stayed in Kauai and we absolutely loved it. Hands down, the bed was the most comfortable bed I have slept on in any hotel, airbnb, or vrbo. Every place we stayed after, I kept wishing I was sleeping in that bed. We stayed in Canal A and it was the perfect size for the two of us. We loved the bathroom which featured many little luxuries. There was a towel warmer, a bidet toilet, nice quality shampoo, and a really nice shower head. The kitchen has everything you need and was very well equipped. The grounds are beautiful and we enjoyed strolling through them every morning and evening. Fruit trees, wildlife, and all the flora and fauna were truly enjoyable. We definitely appreciated all of the equipment that we were able to use (scuba equipment, water shoes, coolers, beach chairs, and kayak equipment with super easy access to the river right outside our door!) We were also very glad to have a laundry room on the grounds. This place is tucked away nicely and feels very private and safe. We barely saw any of the other people that were staying in the other houses/cottages. We would stay here again 100%! Thank you and mahalo!
