1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Kapaa, Kauai, Hawaii
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.

The real attraction of Fern Grotto Inn is our secluded, vintage plantation cottages. Originally constructed in the 1940s and 1950s, our six 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...

About the neighbourhood
Availability of the units can be viewed as well as reservations can be made online.

We are centrally located in the perfect spot for exploring the whole island of Kauai. Just ten minutes north of the airport, the property is on the East side of the island on the banks of the Wailua River, a few minutes from the heart of Kapaa town, walking distance to beaches and family parks. We are nestled in Hawaii's largest coconut grove in the shadow of Sleeping Giant mountain with easy access to hiking and kayaking. We are only a block from the beach. Close enough to hear the ocean but not able to see it. You can see the river from the cottages & kayak rental is only a block away.
