Property description

Secluded 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 secluded, 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.

CANAL COTTAGE A has an open layout and plenty of island charm. However, this cottage also comes with a full kitchenette and views of the river. It also has a small patio area just outside the front door that overlooks the gardens. It’s yours for $140 per night plus a cleaning fee of $100.
