  • Jerry and Lindsay

    "What an incredible 12 day visit with two of the best hosts one could ever experience. It truly felt like home being with them and sharing time together. The accommodations were wonderful - all the creature comforts included. Our view would be hard to beat anywhere - pool, and Pacific and blue sky. Awesome and winning combo. Not only was it a delight to spend time with the owners, but our hearts were captured by their absolutely wonderful three boxers and how they would come to greet us daily. This is a place to relax, get away from it all, enjoy the views and being off the beaten path of the hustle and bustle of staying in a city hotel. We loved it, will recommend it and hope to be back in the future."

  • Perfect condo for a perfect vacation in paradise!

    "I've stayed at Caroline's condo in Kihei several times over the past 10 years and it's always perfect. It's been recently updated, very clean, in a perfect location, and is by far the best stay in Maui. The ground floor unit leads out to a beautiful manicured lawn with gas grills just steps outside your back door. One of my favorite things is sitting on the lanai in the morning to have a cup of coffee and soak in the fresh air. Why waste a lot of money staying at a high price resort? When you can stay in a beautiful condo in a beautiful complex and be away from the hustle and bustle of a resort. Her condo has a fully equipped kitchen, high speed internet, and a nice flat screen TV. Plus you can pack lightly since the unit has a washer and dryer and save room for all the goodies you'll bring back home from the Islands. I'll be back for sure and I already know where I'm staying...at Caroline's Maui Sunset Condo!"

  • Our Perfect Vacation

    "I just wanted you to know how perfect Hale Kawika was. It was everything and more! We DID make guacamole every day. It was hard to leave the house but we managed to go snorkeling and kayaking as well as attend my daughter's wedding. We definitely didn't want it to end and we will be back. We dream of staying at Hale Kawika again in the future. Thanks for everything. Karen Hartling PS: Herb, Lisa and Jennifer were wonderful too!"

Lanai Travel Tips

The Stuff Holidays are Made of at Lanai Vacation Rentals

Imagine framing the rock cliffs of Lanai, Hawaii in your camera. The unhurried pace allows plenty of opportunities for leisurely activities in a place that inspires daydreams. If you can dream up a watersport, relaxing activity, or view, Lanai vacation rentals will be the place to find this reality. Lanai is one of the smaller Hawaiian Islands as it's only 18 miles in length and 13 miles wide. As someone said, “There are no traffic lights, and this is how the people of Lanai like it.” It is a whole other world on Lanai and most definitely different from Maui which is eight miles away.

Pragmatic Details About Lanai Beach Rentals

Getting to Lanai can be a bit of a concern because it is impossible to fly directly to the island from the lower 48 states or Alaska. Instead, you must travel to Maui and either take a boat or small plane to Lanai City. Once on the island, you may want a rental car to move around to the various locations. Lanai City and Koele are the major cities of the island. Lanai City has a population of 3,193 which does not even make it a city in most people’s eyes but rather a quaint town. Temperatures will remain between 70 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit year-round with about 37 inches of rainfall a year. Lanai City is a bit cooler because of the mountain elevation but you still have shorts-wearing weather to enjoy.

Lanai Condos Near the Golf Clubs

The finest golfing to be found on the island is located in Koele and Manele which are close to some of the Lanai condo locations. The courses are world-class in their championship set-up. If you do not golf, do not worry as there are plenty of activities for non-golfers on the island. Nature-lovers will enjoy the pine Munro Trail where you can lose yourself in the peaceful and well conserved forest. It is possible to look out at the ocean for Spinner dolphins from Hulopoe Bay. They are one of the more aerobatic species of dolphin, granting you a scene that is hard to witness in any other state. If there are no dolphins, spend your time looking in the tide pools for other sea creatures or take a snorkel trip out to the reefs. Diving is a must for anyone who wishes to view the crystal-clear waters from below and the amazingly stocked reefs. Lanai is home to Shipwreck Beach, named for the WWII-era ship that is trapped there.

Historical Sites Found on Lanai

Nature is not the only attraction one can find on Lanai. There are four historical sites you should travel to in between hammock naps and surfing the waves. Lanaihale is a trail which takes you up the 3,370-foot mountain named after George Munro. Munro planted pine trees along the trail. These pine trees came from New Zealand. From the hiking or driving trail, you can spot Oahu, Molokai, Maui, and Kahoolawe. Keahikawelo or the Garden of the Gods is another remarkable feature of Lanai due to the rock tower formations. Those who have visited the area say the garden of rock towers glows in the sunset. Manele Harbor provides more than beautiful views and boats, as it is home to the largest collection of petroglyphs. Finally, for historical sites, there is Kaunolu Village. It was once the favored fishing area for King Kamehameha I. Today, you are able to see the ruins of the village which left behind 85 house platforms and a religious temple.

Cuisines and Fresh Fish on Lanai

Lanai Beach rentals ensure that you have a fully equipped kitchen for cooking fresh fish and seafood you catch during the day. However, if you are ready for something a little different, you can visit the city’s restaurants with their authentic Hawaiian dishes. Many will have a Pacific bent like the Filipino dishes common on the Hawaiian islands.
