Kodak Hula Show in Waikiki

Why Choose Waikiki Vacation Rentals?

Waikiki is the most famous of all the beach resort areas in Hawaii. When Hawaiian royalty used Waikiki beach as one of their retreats in the 19th century little did they dream that this lovely paradise would become a vibrant gathering place for visitors from around the world. Moana Surfrider, the first hotel to be built on Waikiki Beach in 1901, still offers High Tea to visitors and the pink Royal Hawaiian is another beachfront hotel that has survived from the early days.

At Waikiki Beach a statue of Duke Kahanamoku welcomes tourists to the beach. He is credited with reviving surfing, the ancient sport of Hawaiian royalty and hence earned the nickname the "Father of Modern Surfing" 'The Duke' is also famous for winning Olympic gold medals for swimming in 1912 and 1920, and he later went to act in Hollywood, where he used his fame to ecourage the sport of surfing, and pass on the spirit of Aloha. The rich history of the area is only one reason to choose Waikiki vacation rentals.

Diamond head, a volcanic tuff cone just above Waikiki, is probably one of the most photographed landmarks in Hawaii and is also a United States State Monument. Tourists can do a 90 minute hike to the crater's rim and are rewarded with a view of the inside of the rim and breathtaking panoramic views of Waikiki and the Pacific Ocean.

Waikiki is alive with a wide variety of restaurants, shops, hotels and street vendors. Waikiki beach is great for families and offers beginning surf lessons for kids, great sand for castles and proximity to venues selling food and drinks. The wide Kalakaua Avenue which runs beside Waikiki beach is an interesting place to walk as it is dotted by pools, fountains, statues, and plaques displaying interesting bits of history. The avenue will also lead you to the Waikiki Zoo and Waikiki Aquarium. Choosing Waikiki vacation rentals makes a lot of sense if you are travelling with your family. It will allow you to have self catering accommodation in a condo or vacation home and also you will have more room for your family than a hotel can offer.
