Are you traveling with family, or a big group of friends? Do you like to have a little more space just for yourselves? Then consider renting a Hawai’i Island vacation home when you visit scenic Hawaiʻi Island! We have a great selection of vacation homes to choose from, and in a wide variety of neighborhoods. Whatever your preferences, we’re sure to have just the right vacation home for you!
Hawaiʻi Island is a diverse place, with many different climate types and elevations to choose from. Think about whether you’d prefer to be close to the beach, with full sun every day, or whether you prefer a cool mountain breeze and evening rainshowers. Do you like to be close to town, or in a remote and peaceful location? Hawaiʻi Island has all these, and so much more!
Most people think about beaches when they think of Hawaiʻi; as a geologically much younger island, Hawaiʻi Island doesn’t have quite so many of those (though we do have some great ones!). Instead, we boast a great variety of other activities to focus on. So if you’ve spent a day at the beach, consider spending the next one exploring art galleries, touring a coffee farm, visiting a botanical garden, or checking out beautiful waterfalls. Feeling adventurous? Then you’ll want to consider some thrill rides, whether they be parasailing, ziplining, spelunking, or a helicopter flight over an active volcano. The possibilities are endless!
Popular Attractions Near Our Hawaii Island Vacation Homes
Hawaii Island is largest in landmass than any other Hawaiian Island. While there is a greater distance between some of the island’s most popular attractions, it is still feasible to reach most sites with a quick road trip. If you don’t want to spend much time in the car, consider building your itinerary before making a final decision on which of our Hawaii Island vacation homes would be the most convenient for your stay.
The west coast town of Kailua-Kona is the island’s main hub, and it is here you will find the largest concentration of shopping, dining, and nightlife options. In addition to modern conveniences, Kailua-Kona also has a rich history that is worth exploring on a walking tour. For ultimate convenience, plan to stay in one of our Hawaii Island vacation homes situated near the charming town of Kailua-Kona!
As you move further away from Kailua-Kona, the vastness and rawness of nature present on the Big Island becomes more apparent. South of town, Kealakekua Bay is a site of both history and vibrant marine life. Visit the site where Captain James Cook first set foot on the island in 1778 and the first extensive contact between Hawaiians and Westerners took place. He was later killed at this same site. In contrast to these solemn remembrances, the bay is also home to some of the island’ very best snorkeling. This marine life conservation district boasts an abundance of fish species which are all protected from being fished. Snorkel on your own or join one of the tour companies that lead a limited number of excursions into this precious region. As an added bonus, a pod of spinner dolphins can often be seen in the deeper areas of the bay.
When you think of the town of Kona, many people would recognize it from the popular Kona Coffee. Much of this famed coffee is grown from the Kona area extending down to the southern end of the island. This breezy area along the base of the slopes of Haleakala offer a great getaway, especially for coffee lovers. Dotting the roadside you will find places of interest such as the Kona Coffee Living History Farm, which will take you back to the coffee plantation era of the 1920s, as well as a host of coffee farms where you can sample and discover why this area is so well known for its excellent cups of joe.
