Ideal vacation rentals in Oahu Hawaii

Vacation rentals in Oahu provide a wide range of accommodation options, from beachfront condos to cozy cottages, for travelers looking to experience the island's beauty and culture.

While most of us are familiar with Waikiki and parts of the North Shore, much of the island still remains a mystery to most.

Consider booking your vacation at some of the less touristy parts of the island, including the Windward side, the West Shore, or more laid back parts of the North Shore.

The Windward side

Across the Pali Hwy, located on the eastern side of the island are some of the most beautiful beaches in the Oahu…and in the world for that matter!

Also referred to as the countryside, you will find charming communities that offer a good selection of Oahu vacation rentals.  They include the towns of Lanikai, Kailua, and Waimanalo.  Check out some great Kailua Beach Vacation Rentals!

The Windward side of Oahu is known for its lush, green landscapes, scenic beaches, and a quieter, more relaxed atmosphere compared to the busier Waikiki area.

Lanikai gets the prestige for its beach homes and treasured and world renown stretch of powder sand beach.  Kailua next door has a small town square with great shopping, bookstores, and great dining options! 

Waimanalo, on the other hand, defines the countryside feel that it’s known for, and has the best white sand beaches in my opinion!

North Shore

The North Shore of Oahu is a renowned surf destination known for its big waves, picturesque beaches, and laid-back, rural atmosphere.

A trip to famous North Shore beaches, a stroll through old town Haleiwa, and indulging in Hawaiian shave ice & garlic shrimp are fond memories for many, who are here just for the day.  But planning your Oahu vacation rental in the North Shore offers a new perspective and island experience.

There is an endless stretch of beach known as “7 Miracle Mile Beach”.  Although it can get busy in popular areas such as Ehukai (Banzai Pipeline), and Sunset Beach, most other areas where home communities exist will feel off the beaten path and quiet.

There’s something to be said for being the first one to take a morning stroll on the beach or hear the waves crashing in the distance at night.

Town-Side Honolulu

Diamond Head on Oahu is an iconic volcanic crater and hiking destination known for its breathtaking views of Honolulu and the surrounding coastline.

Still want to be part of the action but not in a hotel?  There are many Oahu vacation rentals located in Waikiki, downtown Honolulu, and around Diamond Head.  It gives you the opportunity to live like a local and be close to the best eateries, great shopping, and Oahu nightlife.

West Side - Ko'olina & Beyond

Ko'olina Vacation Rentals provide travelers with a comfortable and convenient accommodation option in the beautiful Ko'olina resort area of Oahu, Hawaii.

Ko’olina has become a destination all onto its own with its popular four ocean beach-lagoons, a premier Oahu golf course, the Marriott Hotel, and the new Aulani Disney Hotel.  The private community features some homes and condos that are also available as vacation rentals in Oahu.

Check out a few Ko'olina Vacation Rentals.

Head further north and it gets even more laid back and “local” as you approach Maili towards Makaha.  The beaches are beautiful with little to disrupt it.  Spend some time on beautiful Yokohama Bay, and explore the Ka’ena Point State Park.

Rent a Car to Explore

It is best to rent a car to get around when staying outside Waikiki.  Stores, restaurants, and attractions are usually located outside of most residential neighborhoods and will need some type of transportation to get to.  Learn more about renting a car on Oahu...

Hawaii car rental services provide visitors with the opportunity to explore the islands at their own pace with a wide selection of rental vehicles.
