  • Great Maui Location

    "This was our second trip to Maui and Maui Sands is a great location. (However, it's ironic that there is no 'sand' on the beach.) Perhaps in another month it would be different - but January was a great time to go to see the whales off in the distance. Best to have a car to travel the island, but if you don't ~ this is a good spot to be. Close to stores, beaches, and farmers market. So much to see and do around the island, but if you are looking for the classic resort scene with picturesque pool, this is not for you. This property is closer to true island living and is VERY comfortable. We took a one year old and being on the second floor was great (no elevator) - able to let him run free with lanai patio door open with no worries. The condo was equipped with snorkel gear, beach toys, laundry soap, cleaning supplies, condiments in the fridge, full kitchen, even toiletries that might have been forgotten at home. It has an older feel, but that is all revealed in the photos. We had a great time and felt very comfortable here. I would just like to mention that the ocean view noted (pictured) on the website has a very deceiving 'ocean view' of the true location of this unit. The picture seen on the website is completely zoomed in and cropped. We were thinking this unit would be right on the ocean, but is actually set back a bit in the complex. Other than that - it was a wonderful time and I would certainly go back! Thanks!"

  • Fabulous!

    "The home is really beautiful! Fabulous views across the bay and ocean. The home is very nicely upgraded and very easy to slide right into. We traveled the whole island and this is a good middle point to go the north end or down to the volcano (keeping in mind it is a BIG Island). The pictures are spot on. Great stay."

  • My Maui Palace I - Wow!

    "This was my husband's and my first trip to Hawaii (Maui) - long overdue, to celebrate our 38th anniversary. We could not have picked a more perfect place - no words can describe the beauty of the view - you are literally steps from the beautiful turquoise water, yet it is your own private beach - there is also a pool, and an outdoor grilling area. We enjoyed this so much mainly because it was hard to leave the Palace. The condo is beautifully appointed and decorated. Everything you could possibly need is available; and it was so peaceful and quiet. The on-site manager and his wife were also such sweet people. We did not want to leave, it felt so like home - that's how comfortable it is. It is also close to everything - restaurants, markets, etc. Sam and George were wonderful as well, providing us with so much useful information and tips ahead of our trip (we did take the lovely road to Hana trip through the folks you recommended. Awesome!). Thanks so much, Sam and George, you made our vacation so special. Don't hesitate to stay here, you won't regret it - it's that special.........."

  • Lovely unit

    "We have just retuned to Australia after staying in Margo's unit. It was beautifully decorated, had everything you could possibly need and Margo could not have been more helpful."

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.
