Overview

Wailua River Lots House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 3 Bath, (Sleeps 2 - 6)

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 13.42 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 $275 per night. Additional guests are $25 per night, and there is a cleaning fee of $250.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Paul & Nausheen

Wow!! What a wonderful time we have had in your tropical paradise. We felt at home the minute we walked into the cottage. What a warm feeling.

May you be blessed with many more visitors that love the cottage as much as we do. So much that we hope to return very soon.

Thank you for your kindness & kind ways. You have a wonderful family & a wonderful retreat.

We had a lovely stay at the Ohana House. We were married in their beautiful gardens and we appreciate how Paul and Nausheen made us feel so welcome for our special day.

Wonderful garden. Good location, close to Lydgate

Park and 1/2 way to Poipu and Ke'e Beaches. The

kitchen was roomy and stocked with spices, garbage

bags, etc. The beds and bathrooms were comfortable.

A very enjoyable stay.

Dear Juma Family,

Our stay at the Fern Grotto Inn was everything we hoped for. We rented all of the cottages and Ohana House. Ohana was perfect for the family grathering. The classic country kitchen large enough to accomodate all of the cooks and seat everyone. From reading material and games, beach equipment and coolers, and even a crib and booster seat you have thought of everything. The location is perfect to so many things on the island. Just withing a few miles of our "Ohana Home", there was so much to do. Our 40th wedding anniversary was made even more special by the beautifully kept homes and grounds. We hope to be back soon.

Mahalo, Mahalo,

Dave and Donna Betts

Paul & Nausheen

Thank you for sharing your lovely bit of Kauai with us.

This is a great location - a good walk to the beaches a short drive to the shops.

Your kindness and hospitality were much appreciated (& we were so happy to have that electric tea kettle, Paul).

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful property. We stayed in the Ohana House, and were very pleased. It was clean, spacious, and exceeded all of our expectations. It is off the main road, so the only noise is the occasional roster. The house itself is beautiful. We were very pleased at how large and well stocked the kitchen was -- everything from a blender to a dishwasher (and multiple gas grills outside!). And each of the three bedrooms has its own bathroom. Only a short walk to the beach (although you have to cross a busy intersection). Paul and his family were wonderful hosts, and I hope to return again.

  • 5 of 5

We took over the big house and two of the cottages for a week for a 50th birthday (dubbed Hawaii five-0) family gathering. As good as Fern Grotto looked on line, it was even much better in person. The houses have been restored with such loving care, and we could all gather at Ohana. The hospitality was first rate, and location perfect...not too touristic, very old Hawaii. Loved it, and hope to come back, Barry
