Hawaii vacation rentals–Like nothing you could ever imagine
For the tropical trip of a lifetime, Hawaii is the place to go.
With six main islands – Kauai, Oahu, Lanai, Molokai, Maui, and the Big Island – Hawaii is full of lush greenery, sugar sand beaches and beautiful water. Just a short flight away from the mainland, your dream Hawaiian vacation condo is closer than you think.
Hawaii vacation–Home away from home
Step out of your Hawaii beach front vacation home and dip your toes into the warm ocean or lay back and soak up the sun in the sand. Listen to traditional Hawaiian music, sip tropical drinks or eat pineapples and coconuts fresh from the trees.
Hawaii–More than just beaches
When you’ve had your fill of beaches, take a scenic tour to see the stunning natural sights Hawaii has to offer. Visit Fern Grotto, one of Hawaii’s most popular attractions, a natural grotto carved out of lava that acts as a natural amphitheatre for Hawaiian music performances or a wedding ceremony you’ll never forget.
Walk above the clouds at Maui's Haleakala Crater – at 10,000 feet, it’s the largest dormant volcano in the world, or visit scenic water blow-holes formed by tubes of lava and watch water turn luminescent at sunset.
Take a boat tour to see humpback whales along the Poipu coastline, hike up to Puukohola Heiau, one of the largest and most sacred temples in Hawaii, or watch the water tumble down from Wailua Falls, an 80-foot tiered waterfall.
