Great location / Comfortable Cottages
We spent 5 nights at the Fern Grotto Inn (Garden Cottage) for our first trip to Kauai. The cottage and grounds were absolutely perfect for our needs. Kapaa is an easy traveling distance to both the northern and southern/western parts of Kauai and the Fern Grotto Inn made a great home base from which to do this. Other guests were staying at the other cottages on site but it still felt very private and secluded. Lots of great amenities made it feel more like a home than an Inn: Laundry on site, several gas grills, and a large supply of boogie boards, coolers, beach chairs, snorkeling gear to borrow. Cottages also have small thoughtful touches in them shampoo, bodywash, dish soap and fresh sponges (who wants to buy dish soap for just a few days??), coffee, guidebooks, beach towels and we even had a box of chocolate covered macadamia nuts in our room (which we devoured). There are even mango trees on site and Paul the owner encourages you to eat them if there are any ready to eat. We will definitely stay here again when we make it back to Kauai. No complaints!
