Home to Hawai‘i’s capital, its largest city, and its largest airport, it is easy to see why O‘ahu has always been known as “The Gathering Place.” Don’t be fooled though, while Honolulu is a bustling metropolis, O‘ahu is home to lush mountains, scenic hikes, pristine beaches, and quiet neighborhoods. With direct flights to Honolulu International Airport, ILoveHawaii’s selection of vacation homes across the island offer you the chance to have the perfect Hawaiian escape, right here.
Never Short on Charm
With two rugged mountain chains and 112 miles of beautiful coast line, O’ahu boasts all of the same natural beauty that draws people to Hawai‘i, with even more convenience and amenities than the neighbor islands. Here you can see the historical sights of Pearl Harbor, hike the iconic Diamond Head volcano, or explore the natural wonderland and scenic movie backdrop of Kualoa Ranch. From the sweeping beaches of the leeward coast to the resort-style amenities on the southern shore, from the excitement of Waikīkī to the scenic valleys of the windward side, no matter where you choose to stay on O‘ahu you will find plenty to do, and plenty of ways to relax.
On the neighbor islands, your nightlife options – while exciting in their own right – are limited to local hangouts and resort-style venues. O‘ahu features a vibrant cultural scene, with weekly art exhibits and street festivals in Chinatown and Kakaako, dozens of world-class restaurants (and hundreds of delicious ones), a thriving craft beer scene, and the nightclubs and bars of the world-renowned Waikīkī Beach. Celebrate Chinese New Year with dancing lions, enjoy weekly firework displays on the beach, check out the art and theater scene, or simply dine with your favorite person in an intimate café or romantic beachside restaurant. Whatever your heart’s desire, you’ll find it on O‘ahu.
Of course, it is easy to get away from the hustle and bustle whenever you want. Our vacation rentals can be found across the island, in a variety of charming neighborhoods. From the sun soaked communities of the West Side to the sleepy towns on the North Shore to the beach communities of the Windward Side, we have a home for every style of vacation. No matter where you choose to stay, you’ll find yourself immersed in natural beauty, with the convenience and attractions the island has to offer just a short drive away. So pick out a cabin in Makaha, stay on the beach in Kailua, or explore the quiet North Shore town of Waialua with its artistic vibe and big wave surf competitions.
