With incredible scenery, a tropical climate, and casual island vibes, Hawaii is a more than a vacation—even for travelers who are just stopping by, it’s a way of life. And there’s no better island to truly immerse yourself in Hawaii’s unique style than the "Garden Isle," where you’ll find endless adventures by day and a laid-back scene by night. In fact, when you listen closely from the balcony of your vacation rental in Kauai, you should hear…well, nothing, save for the gently lapping waves and perhaps the music of a luau floating on the breeze. And that’s just the way it should be.
The island of Kauai is all about nature—it’s home to some of Hawaii’s best hikes and most beautiful scenery, not to mention surf breaks. In fact, no building can be taller than a coconut tree, keeping the landscapes pristine and those amazing hiking trails uncrowded. And this is one place you’ll find the locals living right alongside the tourists: hiking Waimea Canyon, kayaking the Na Pali Coast (made famous in the movie Jurassic Park), and splashing around in Hanalei Bay.
The pull of the ocean on Kauai is undeniable, and you’ve simply got to get in the water. On the south side of the island, Poipu Beach is a popular surf spot, and a vacation rental like Castle Kiahuna Plantation & Beach Bungalows will make you really feel like a local. You’ll have plenty of space to store your board, and a private lanai for sipping a locally brewed IPA and planning your next adventure.
Travelocity doesn’t just have some of the best deals on Kauai hotels. You can also say “aloha” to great prices on Kauai vacation rentals when you book with us—and you get the added bonus of a true home away from home. When it comes to the local life, you’ve pretty much nailed it.
