Looking For An Affordable Way To Visit Hawaii? Choose Vacation Rentals!
Summer vacations will be here before you know it so it is time to start planning! If you are looking for a vacation that will take everyone’s breath away then you need to consider Hawaii. Over 8 million people visited the island in 2014 and that number continues to grow. Whether you end up choosing big island vacation rentals or one of many pre-planned Hawaiian dream vacations, you will find fun for your entire family. Below are a few quick facts about Hawaiian vacations to get you excited about your trip!
Weather – The weather in Hawaii is known as semi-tropical. This type of weather makes for hot days (between 75-90 degrees) and cool to hot nights (70-80 degrees). Because so many of the beach resort rentals and other vacation real estate is directly on or extremely close to a beach, the hot weather is welcome. Imagine waking up in one of the big island vacation rentals you’ve chosen and opening the curtain to see an incredible Hawaii sunrise coming up over the horizon. Talk about magical!
Vacation Costs – While Hawaii is known for a lot of positive things like weather, food, and views, it is not known to be a vacation spot that people choose for the price. Much of this has to do with the fact that Hawaii is very far away from the lower 48 states in the U.S. so the flights there are expensive, and for Hawaiians to get the things they need the cost often goes up. When budgeting for your Hawaii vacation, consider a vacation rental rather than a hotel – on average the per night rate for a vacation rental is around $170, whereas the average hotel per night rate is $244.
Things to Do/See – Another part of trip planning is filling in the itinerary. What will you do during the day? Where will you dine? Are there any tourists attractions that you cannot miss? These are all questions that can lead you to dozens of options in Hawaii. During the day you might choose a deep sea fishing adventure or a helicopter tour of some nearby volcanoes. You’ll have tons of dining options as well from local Hawaiian cuisine to some of the best seafood restaurants around. As for tourist sites, Pearl Harbor is always at the top of people’s lists as a must see on the island of Oahu.
People love to vacation. It is a time to relax with family and friends, and to see and experience new places together. Hawaii has long been a vacation destination, but recently (between 2010 and 2015) there has been an uptick in the visitation numbers. For your upcoming trip to Hawaii remember some of the tips above: look for big island vacation rentals rather than hotels, fill your itinerary ahead of time, and leave time to take in all of the Hawaii property you get to see. You’ll be glad you did!
