Explore Oahu condo rentals

Home to Honolulu, Oahu is one of the most popular islands for an apartment in Hawaii. Many of Hawaii's most famous attractions are found here, including the Punchbowl Crater cemetery, the iconic Waikiki Beach, Pearl Harbor, and the USS Arizona Memorial. Along with stunning beaches and prime surf waves, Oahu has some of the best nightlife in Hawaii and numerous fine restaurants and high-end bars. For outdoor enthusiasts, the Diamond Head volcano offers some of the best hiking on the islands, and there's excellent diving and snorkeling among colorful sea life in the marine waters of Hanauma Bay State Park.

Things to do

Attractions near O'ahu vacation rentals

A vast volcanic tuff cone, Diamond Head is Hawaii's State Monument, and one of the island's best-known natural wonders. A 0.75-mile hike takes visitors up to the crater's rim, where they can admire far-reaching views over Waikiki and the glittering Pacific Ocean. Easier to get to but requiring an equal amount of energy is Honolulu's historic Chinatown. Tantalizingly scented by traditional noodle and dim sum eateries, the streets are home to lively bars, artsy galleries and bustling markets pedaling antiques and handicrafts. West of the capital is Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial. Accessible only by water taxi, the moving memorial sits above the battleship's sunken hull, and honors those killed in 1941.
