    About this property

    Lonely Planet Recommends our Cottages! Vrbo Bear Stayed Here! Free Kayaks & Bike

    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 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 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 and private, 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 Ohana House. A 14.962 percent tax will be applied to the rates quoted below. For more information and pictures, please visit our website. OHANA HOUSE offers guests 1,200 square feet of luxury. Insider you’ll find three bedrooms, three bathrooms, hardwood floors, air conditioning, and a large kitchen and dining area. There’s also a small porch that overlooks the garden. Ohana House sleeps up to six guests comfortably, but it’s also a great option for couples who want more space. Two bedrooms have queen-size beds, and a third has two twin-size beds. Two guests can rent Ohana House for $350 per night. Additional guests are $25 per night, and there is a cleaning fee of $250.

    Beautiful, well furnished home, but it is insanely loud. There were bowls of ear plugs in every room

    The family that runs it is very kind and they provided excellent extras in the house. That said, we were woken up regularly throughout every night by loud cars and trucks bombing down the road. The house sits close to the highway, but even closer to the main artery into a major subdivision. We described it like pitching a tent under the freeway. It made for unpleasant evenings, difficult naps for our daughter, and uncomfortable lounging outside. In addition, the property is next to a public park where people would sit in their cars with the radio blasting. Also, this house does not stand alone. It is part of a multi-unit property and there was construction of a giant home about 20 feet away during the week. There were no cut in fees for having the construction noise while we were there. I suggest spending some of that money on insulating the house and upgrading windows. This is obviously an issue since there were bowls of ear plugs in every room, but I felt duped because I didn't read about the noise issue when I was researching this house. We spent thousands of dollars expecting a tranquil vacation of lounging around, and were discouraged. For the same amount of money we could have stayed in ocean front property, but thought a river scene would be fun. This is our 3rd annual trip and we will not be staying here again.
