Condominium and Vacation Rentals on Kauai

Condominium Rentals

Does your group like to spread out when vacationing? Then a condominium might be the perfect accommodation for you. This is especially the case on Kauai, where many visitors want to stay at least a week or two.

A

condo with 2-3 bedrooms... and often such amenities as on-site swimming pools and large lanais, not to mention killer views … really gives you the opportunity to settle in and enjoy your island vacation.

With its many small towns and tropical rural areas, Kauai offers many possibilities. It is rightly known as the “Garden Isle” as it is home to some of the lushest vegetation in the Islands. It also offers spectacular beaches. It’s no surprise that movies like “Blue Hawaii” and the re-make of “King Kong” were partly filmed on this island.

On Kauai, you will find condominium buildings sprinkled all along the eastern coast, from sunny Poipu in the south to charming Hanalei in the north. The ones in Princeville are likely to be the most expensive. Expect to find more moderately priced units in the south and near central Kapaa.

Condos are particularly good for families, or for intergenerational groups (grandma and grandpa get their own bedroom) or for several couples traveling together. And the ability to make your own meals, particularly breakfasts and picnic lunches, can cut down substantially on your food costs.

In fact, once you have rented a condo unit, you may never want to stay in a hotel again. Prices vary widely according to the size of the home, its location and the time of year you are booking so shop carefully.

 

Vacation Rentals

Does your group like to spread out when vacationing? Then a multi-bedroom unit might be the perfect accommodation for you. This is especially the case on Kauai, where many visitors want to stay at least a week or two.

Vacation Ownership Units is one of the broadest groups of accommodations. Formerly called timeshares, they are all that and more. There are lots of these units in the islands. You can access these units either by trading one that you own, or by renting such a unit through Hawaii.com.

Typically, these units are studio, one, two or three bedrooms and usually they are in buildings of multiple units of similar design. The complexes usually offer a wide range of activities, some free and some for a charge. Welcome cocktail parties are typical as are mid-week barbeques.

There is almost always some type of kitchen so you have the advantage of being able to make your breakfasts and picnic lunches, thus saving money.

In recent years, many well known major hotel companies have entered the fractional ownership business and so you can now book condo-type accommodations and yet enjoy all of the amenities of a luxury resort. A unit with 2-3 bedrooms...and often such amenities as on-site swimming pools and large lanais, not to mention killer views … really gives you the opportunity to settle in and enjoy your island vacation.
