    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!

    Quiet B & B

    Quiet B & B in local neighborhood. At base of Sleeping Giant mountain area, near Kappa. This is more like a small 1 bedroom apartment. Stocked with many cooking utensils and a gas grill ready to go. Loved having a washer and dryer in the apartment. David and Linda helpful hosts for info about the island. Great outdoor space overlooking a small stream.

    Fern Grotto Inn - Hard to find but worth it

    We stayed at the Canal B cottage for 7 days. It is very comfortable and private. The only thing inconvenient about the Inn is finding it - the entrance isn't well marked. The location is close to everything in Kapa'a. I felt like we were staying in a private home during our stay. It is only a few miles from the Lihue airport. Thanks Paul for a great vacation stay on Kauai.

    A hidden treasure

    Fern Grotto Inn is actually a grouping of cottages a block from the beach, just south of Kapaa, on the beautiful island of Kauai. It can be a little difficult to find, as there are no signs announcing the Inn, but that adds to the privacy and tranquility of the setting. Our cottage was the perfect size, and the only one without a full kitchen, but the microwave, refrigerator and other kitchen supplies more than satisfied our needs. The cottages are all air conditioned, but with the soft island breezes at night, we had no need for it. The beach is not one of those that have lifeguards, but we felt confident enough to swim there when the ocean was calm. The Inn is conveniently located near stores and restaurants. After staying there I could not imagine staying at one of the larger resorts. If you desire privacy, a romantic setting and just kicking back, this is the place for you!

    5/5 Excellent
