Staying at the Fern Grotto Inn really made this phrase ring true. Stayed in the Canal Cottage A for a week and I only have positive things to say about this place.
- The inn keepers are very friendly and on site most of the time, in the event that they aren't they're always accessible by cell phone.
- A washer and dryer is available for use; which is great b/c this island is like a tropical super duper 24-hour-fitness..between swimming at the beach, kayaking, hiking etc.. Oh and the dirt is red.
-They provide boogie boards, beach chairs, snorkel gear, beach towels and coolers. All you really need are slippers and water shoes - which you can purchase from K-mart or Wal-mart if you don't already have them.
-We didn't use them but they also provide a number of barbeques and one of the best views in the world to enjoy your food.
-This location is the most central to the various sights (as there isn't a continuous highway around the island). It's located right next to the Wailua River, across from the old Coco Palms Resort.
- I noticed that one previous reviewer commented on the presence of giant river roaches and geckos in the room. I'm a huge bug-o-phobe and I did not see a single bug in the room.
Overall we had an excellent vacation experience in Kaua'i and a portion of it is attributed to the wonderful accommodations that the Fern Grotto Inn provided.
Thank you Paul and Nasheen.
