Ahh, Hawaii. Can you picture a more idyllic location? How about staying in a luxury Hawaii Airbnb? With stunning beaches, nature, a chilled out vibe, and that welcoming hula-hula feel, Hawaii is one of the most sought-after locations on the planet. Remember, Hawaii isn’t just the Big Island, the state consists of multiple islands. Deciding which island to stay on can actually be quite tricky, because they all have beauty in abundance and different feels to them. It really depends on what you’re after!
The Big Island is without a doubt the main pull, but Oahu is another to consider. Surfing, food, chilling out, and enjoying nature are certainly on the menu, whether you want to hit famous Waikiki Beach or not. To prove just how luxurious your stay can be, here are 8 of the most incredible luxury Hawaii Airbnbs to put on your short list.
Hawaiian Island Getaway Condo, Kihei
The most incredible luxury Hawaii Airbnbs don’t always have to be huge penthouse apartments or beachfront buildings, as this stunning condo goes to show. Decorated in a colourful, traditional style, you’re surrounded by lush greenery at every turn. With space for four guests, this condo has a huge private pool and BBQ facilities, as well as a sun terrace for soaking up that Hawaiian sun.
Located in Kihei, this tropical one-bedroomed condo has loads of personality. The balcony is the ideal place to chill out in the evening, perhaps with a cocktail in hand. The modern kitchen is stocked full of everything you could need, but you’re also within very easy reach of laidback Kihei nightlife, just a stone’s throw away. It’s basically a home away from home, albeit a tropical and luxurious one, available from just $159 a night.
