  • I noticed that you suggested selecting a cancellation policy that is right for us. I see one free cancellation policy which is cancelation prior to 65 days before arrival. Do you have other options of cancellation closer to arrival date which we can choose in event of Covid Virus?

    We only have one cancellation policy, i.e. Free cancellation 60 days prior to arrival and if travel is restricted by government regulations within 60 days of arrival, you can reschedule your travel dates and there will not be any change fees.

Looking for a refreshing alternative to a resort? Step off the beaten path with our charming Vacation Rentals. Fern Grotto Inn invites you to enjoy the island as it used to be — lush, peaceful, and romantic. Our authentic old style plantation cottages boast island inspired furnishings and modern amenities for a luxurious and comfortable stay. You’ll also find plenty to love in our private garden. Stroll barefoot across the lawn and pluck mangoes, star fruits, oranges, mountain apples, etc. from trees weighted with fruits. It’s like having your own piece of paradise when you stay in our vacation rental cottages. Spend a lazy afternoon paddling down the Wailua River in our Complimentary two-person Kayak, or take our “his and her” Bikes on a picnic to nearby Lydgate Beach. Our past guests call Fern Grotto Inn the best place to stay in Kauai. Read our glowing reviews, and then come stay at our vacation rentals yourself! We offer you the perfect accommodation in our cottages in historic Kapaa town on the Coconut Coast of Kauai. Permit # TVNC 1070,

Remodeling started in 2005 and lasted 2 years. Fern Grotto Inn opened for business in 2007. Over the years and many more upgrades (indoors and outdoors) later, as well as guests recommended changes and additions later, a second floor was added to Coco Cottage and 3 new Coco suites were created in 2017. Over the years, our business has evolved into a self service place you can call your holiday home. Paul Juma

Our Kauai cottages rentals are located in Kapaa town, on the east side of the island. We’re five miles from the airport, one block from the beach, and only a few minutes from grocery stores, restaurants, and shops.
