Explore fun nightlife from a rental house in O'ahu

Known for its nightlife, an O'ahu house in Hawaii is the ideal spot for partygoers. O'ahu is home to the capital of Hawaii, Honolulu, which includes historic Chinatown and the Pearl Harbor National Memorial, the site of the bombing of the USS Arizona during World War II. O'ahu has miles of gorgeous beaches as well, such as Waikiki, a famed beach for water sports and nightlife.

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.
