When planning a trip or stay in Hawaii one of the first things to consider is lodging. While most people would start looking at hotels, one should consider looking into rental properties. Rental properties are homes, condos, villas or land available for rent for a period of time. Most can be rented for days or even weeks at a time.
Once deciding you would like to stay in a rental property, you need to choose which type you would like to stay in. Deciding factors would include number of people traveling; amenities needed, and amount of privacy you would like. If you are traveling with family you might want to consider renting a home, but if you are traveling as a couple you might consider getting a condo. If you are traveling with a large group of people that would like separate places but would like to stay in the same facility or on the same property you should consider looking into villas or attached condos. There are rental properties available to fit everyone’s needs.
Once you decide what type of rental property you would like to stay in, you should then deicide which island you would like to stay on. Hawaii is made up of eight major islands including Niihau, Kauai, Oahu, Maui, Molokai, Lanai, Kahoolawe and Hawaii which is referred to as the big island. Who you are traveling with, and what activities you are planning on doing, should be considered while choosing which island to stay on. Each island has unique qualities and activities to do.
Another factor to considering when getting a rental property is deciding what month you would like to go in. The most popular times to go to Hawaii are mid-December to mid-April; during these times you will find prices to be a little higher due to large volumes of vacationers. The best weather in Hawaii can be found in April, May, September and October. Hurricane season is from June to November in Hawaii. These should be some factors in deciding when to plan your trip.
Once you have decided on what type of rental property you would like to stay in and what island you would like to stay on, and what month you are going, you then need to find your perfect rental property. Instead of going to your local travel agent, there are many sites available on the internet to book your perfect rental property.
