The improving US economy has resulted in more Americans taking vacations last year than at any time since before the recession. Not only are these families vacationing at a greater pace but recent trends indicate that they are becoming more interested in the space of their rentals and the amenities associated with the rentals than they are about the price of the rentals. A recent study of current vacationers found that 28% cited space as the main draw when choosing a rental property and only 13% named price. While price remains a concern, it is not a top concern. Amenities like a full kitchen also ranked high on the list.

Paul Juma, owner of Fern Grotto Inn, a group of six vacation rental cottages in Kauai has seen this trend pick up recently as many of his clients are willing to pay a premium for spacious accommodations loaded with the best amenities. In fact during the last six months of 2012, Juma saw his business increase by 20% and he was able to raise his rental rates by 10% as guests were willing to pay a bit more for the perfect Kauai experience.

Fern Grotto Inn accommodations in Kauai are the perfect place for those who want a bit more space and the comforts of home. Of all the places to stay in Kauai, Fern Grotto Inn cottages are reminiscent of the way the Island used to be; lush, peaceful and romantic. Each plantation cottage features island-inspired furnishing and the latest modern amenities. The fact that Juma has seen his business increase so dramatically in the past years lends credence to the news that guests are now willing to pay a bit more for spacious rentals with the latest amenities.

Fern Grotto Inn is based in Kapaa Island of Kauai and consists of six vacation rental cottages on the east side of Kauai. The company is known for providing luxury accommodations to guests who want an authentic Kauai experience.
