Condominium and Vacation Rentals on Oahu

Condominium Rentals

Do you usually stay in a hotel when you visit Oahu? Have you considered giving yourself more space by staying in a condominium? A unit with 2-3 bedrooms...and often such amenities as on-site swimming pools and large lanais, not to

mention terrific views … really gives you the opportunity to settle in and enjoy your island vacation.

On Oahu, the range of prices for condo units is perhaps the widest on the islands. Honolulu boasts some of the most expensive real estate in Hawaii yet there are affordable rates to be had even here.

Condo units around Kailua and Lanikai and Waimanalo rent for far less and many offer beach access. Budget travelers should also consider the north end of the island. Surfers might prefer to stay here as this is where some of the world’s most famous surfing beaches are located. Golfers might like condos located near the Ko Olina golf course on the western shore or near the famed Koolau course (considered the toughest in the nation) to the east.

Condo rentals 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 condo, its location and the time of year you are booking so shop carefully.

 

Vacation Rentals

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 major well known 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.

On Oahu, the range of prices for these units is perhaps the widest on the islands. Honolulu boasts some of the most expensive real estate in Hawaii yet there are affordable rates to be had even here.
