Make this Christmas one to remember by staying at our Kauai vacation rentals. Our lush, green gardens are a far cry from the traditional White Christmas, but with temperatures that average 67 to 79 degrees, we think it’s a fair trade-off. Here are some of our suggestions on how to avoid the chill and celebrate Christmas Kauai-style.

A Very Kauai Christmas
Celebrate a Mele Kalikimaka by relaxing with your nearest and dearest at our Kauai cottages. Instead of building snowmen this year, take the short walk down to the beach and build sand castles (you may even see Santa paddling by in an outrigger canoe). From musical and hula concerts to art shows and craft fairs, there are plenty of holiday events happening throughout Kauai. Walk or bike through the Kapaa area and see the local homes and shopping areas decked out in glittering lights.

Festival of Lights
Drive 6 miles from Fern Grotto Inn to Lihue to view the annual Festival of Lights at the historic county building. Lights in the park glow from the first week of December until New Years Day, and inside the building you’ll find stunning holiday displays. While you’re in Lihue, visit the Kauai Museum, which holds its annual Christmas Craft Fair in December. Visitors can purchase authentic Hawaiian-made gifts, participate in craft lessons and view wreath displays.

Waimea Lighted Christmas Parade
The town of Waimea glitters with light displays throughout December, but the best time to head there is for the Waimea Lighted Christmas Parade on December 21st. As the sun sets the parade begins with spectacular, lighted floats, horseback riders, dancers and Santa Claus. Following the parade there is entertainment, carols sung in Hawaiian, and plenty of goodies to enjoy.

Ready to spend Christmas in Kauai? Tucked on the east side of the island in Kapaa, Fern Grotto Inn offers authentic old-style plantation cottages with island-inspired furnishings and modern amenities.
