    Location was well situated just outside Kapaa (where a lot of the good restaurants, etc. are). Accommodations were quaint and away from the bustle. Was very convenient to have laundry on-site (less to pack). Will definitely make a return trip!

    We stayed in the Canal B cottage, where we had stayed on our first trip to Kauai a couple years ago. We came back because Fern Grotto Inn feels like home, if home was in a beautiful tropical garden at the beach. Low key, but...More

    We stayed at the main house for 9 days. It was by far the best vacation location I've ever been to. The inn is a series of cottages and the main home located right on the river. It is a 10 minute walk to the...More
