Tropical paradise at vacation home rentals in Hawaii

Aloha, and welcome to the most laid-back spot in the US. Hawaii is a place to kick back, leave your worries at home and get stuck into the pleasure of living. When you think of the Polynesian islands, you'll likely visualize lush tropical forests and powdery beaches, flanked by swaying palms and dotted with surfers. Maybe you've seen photos of the smoky volcanoes, the colorful coral reefs or the famously orange melting sunsets. It's exactly as you imagine, and you can see it all if you stay at a Hawaii vacation rental.

Things to do

Layers of Hawaiian history to discover

Hawaii, like the rest of this Pacific region, has a fascinating heritage, which can be discovered in the Polynesian Cultural Center. In more recent history, the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941 triggered the US's entry into WWII. If you stay in a Hawaii vacation rental, you can learn about that shocking event on one of the daily tours throughout the high season. If you really want to get into the swing of things, consider donning your grass skirt and signing up for hula classes. Other spots to check out include the Iolani Palace and Bishop Museum on Oahu.

Activities

Surf's up in Hawaii

Life in Hawaii ticks along at a slower pace. People here work to live, not the other way around. With such a balmy climate, it's no surprise that most vacationers' time is spent outdoors, whether it's hitting the world-famous surf or horseback riding along the equestrian trails. When you stay in a Hawaii vacation rental, you'll probably need nothing more than a quiet spot on one of the powdery beaches, from which you can splash around in the shallows. If you can drag yourself away, you can charter one of the boats and fish for mahi mahi and tuna.

Weather

Balmy evenings in Hawaii, year-round

Flocks of vacationers descend upon Hawaii between December and March for a little winter sun. If you are planning a getaway around this time, be sure to book up your Hawaii vacation rental early, particularly if it's around Christmas and New Year. Arguably the best time to visit is the shoulder seasons of spring and fall, when you miss the summer family crowds and the weather is still deliciously warm. If that's not enough of a reason to tempt you in, the dip in pricing between April and June or September and November surely will.

Natural features

Dolphins, whales and turtles in Hawaii

Hawaii's isolated spot in the Pacific has contributed to its unique biodiversity. What it lacks in land-dwelling mammals on its volcanic shores, it sure makes up for in the waters that surround them. Humpback whales migrate into the bays and gracefully fluke, as do orcas. Bottlenose dolphins are commonly sighted and, if you dive under the surface, there's a whole underwater world of sea turtles, Hawaiian monk seals and colorful exotic schools of fish. You'll never be far away from nature when you stay at a Hawaii vacation rental.
