– Is Fern Grotto Inn for me?

We’re not sure. We believe Fern Grotto Inn is the most unique and authentic place to stay in Kauai. Here are 8 ways to assess your compatibility level with Fern Grotto Inn.

– What is the best way to make a reservation?

Click here. You’ll be able to scroll through our different cottages and see availability.  Simply pick your dates, fill in your personal/billing information and proceed with the reservation. You can also call us at 808-821-9836 or email at info@ferngrottoinn.com and we can take care of it for you.

– What is the cancellation policy?

Because we are such a small operation, we have what might appear to be a strict cancellation policy. If notice is received within 90 days of arrival, we are unable to issue a refund, unless we are able to re-book, then we will refund your Rent minus a $50 cancellation fee. If notice is received 90 days or more in advance of arrival, a full refund will be issued minus a $50 cancellation fee. We, ourselves, are travelers too and know that emergencies can and do occur. For this reason, we highly recommend http://www.insuremytrip.com/ which offers travel insurance to guard against any emergency that may require a cancellation. We thank you in advance for understanding and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

– Late Check-Out?

Check-Out is at 11:00 am. If available you can stay till 3 pm at no charge, however, if you wish to keep the cottage for use after that, then there is a charge of 50% of your room rate and we will guarantee a late Check-Out till your flight time, but this has to be confirmed beforehand. If your flight departs after 8 pm, then I would recommend this highly.

– Can we book all the cottages and have a family and friends get-together.?

We are not a good option for get-togethers as there is no covered common area for the group to gather. Ohana house, although larger than any of the other cottages, can only comfortably hold 8 guests in the dining room. Because of this shortcoming and other issues, we do not encourage group bookings.
