  • Comfortable and affordable accommodation with friendly host

    "We stayed at the Dolphin Hideaway for four nights. This studio is a good spot to base your exploration of the windward side of the Big Island due to its proximity to Volcano National Park, Mauna Kea, South Point, and Hilo. Laura was very friendly and non-intrusive. She thoughtfully provided us fresh eggs from her chickens and hiking guide booklets for Volcanoes National Park (VNP). The unit was new, very clean, and well-kept. The owner's pride of ownership is apparent. All amenities were provided except laundry detergent. As noted in the listing everything you need from beach towels to snorkel gear is provided. The firm bed's linens were fresh and clean but the bath towels a bit musty. The ceiling fan above the bed and is more than enough to keep you cool at night so no need for air-con. The kitchenette includes microwave, bar fridge, coffee maker, cutlery, and dishes. A barbecue is in the carport for cooking. Washer and dryer are also in the carport. Keep in mind: 1. This is a rural subdivision so expect a few bumps in the road and the odd falling branch. The last 0.3 miles to the house on 4th Ave is a well-graded gravel road. 2. The wi-fi was slow and has usage limits. Usually able to connect to the laptop but not the iPhone. We were reminded not to use it for streaming on our second day (hadn't done so) because it was almost used up. Laura was friendly with her request. 3. Bring laundry detergent if you are planning on using the washing machine. Overall the stay was good and the price appropriate. Don't forget to drop by the Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Factory just down the highway before Hilo and the Hilo Coffee Mill on your way to VNP! Thank you Laura for being a great host!"

  • Luxury in paradise

    "My fiancé and I had a luxurious and comfortable stay here after hiking the Kalalau trail. The view was absolutely amazing- we loved sitting on the grass and watching the sunset. The biggest perks for us were the comfortable bed, great access to Hideaways, and the washer and dryer…and that view!!"

  • Best kept secret - absolutely!

    "This unit is a fantastic place to stay! This one bedroom condo afforded us all the luxuries of home. We loved the king sized bed, easy walk out to the pool, great beach for long beautiful walks, fabulous sunsets, free long distance and email and everything you might need is available. The kitchen is fully equipped. There are beach chairs and snorkel equipment, travel books on Maui galore and you are steps away from shopping and restaurants. We loved our time there and highly recommend this condo."

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.
