Welcome to the Coconut Coast

Perched on Hawaii's idyllic Coconut Coast, Lihu'e serves as the gateway to Kauai. Not only is it home to the island's main airport, but Nawiliwili Harbor also welcomes a constant stream of cruise ships and luxury yachts. It's a lively base for exploring the island, with a slew of breezy cafes, colorful poke bars, and local farmers markets to explore. Lihu'e vacation rentals put you in the heart of Kauai, with a tantalizing selection of luxury properties to choose from.

"Hang 10" in laid-back Lihu'e

Want to learn how to hang 10? Why not sign up for a surf lesson at Kalapaki Beach? If you don't want to get your feet wet, the golden sand is the perfect place to top up your tan. While bayside offerings like the Kauai Marriott Resort and Beach Club are a treat, there's nothing quite like the luxury of private Lihu'e vacation rentals. Fancy a day on the green? Hokuala Golf Resort is a dreamy place to work on your par, with scenic fairways fringed by swaying palms.

Enjoy luaus in Lihu'e

For a glimpse at the island's homegrown talent, don't miss the Kauai Museum, which showcases an amazing collection of local art. Built in the 1930s, the historic Kilohana Estate offers a glimpse at life in colonial Hawaii. Today the restored sugar plantation home throws one of Hawaii's most legendary luaus. As one of the island's biggest farmers' markets, the Kauai Community Market treats shoppers to a bonanza of organic fruit, free range eggs, artisan cheese, island-grown coffee, local honey, fresh smoothies, colorful lei garlands, and more. With Lihu'e vacation rentals you can stock up on your favorite produce, then whip up an island inspired feast in your own kitchen.

A winter sanctuary

Lihu'e is a sanctuary for winter sunseekers, with high season spanning from December to April. Coconut Coast resorts are often booked to capacity, which makes Lihu'e vacation rentals a fantastic option for those in search of a laid-back atmosphere. If you want to beat the winter rush, plan a visit for spring or fall, when you'll still enjoy plenty of sunshine. The Coconut Coast takes its reputation seriously, culminating with Lihu'e's annual Coconut Festival. Held every October, it features cooking demonstrations, pie eating contests, and an endless supply of coconuts.

A gateway to the Garden Isle

Lihue sits on the east coast of Kauai and serves as the island's bustling capital city. It may be an urban hub but it doesn't scrimp on natural beauty. Kauai is nicknamed "The Garden Isle" and it's easy to see why. Lush tropical rainforest covers much of its interior, while the wildly dramatic cliffs of Na Pali Coast State ParkÊhave served as a backdrop for a host of Hollywood films. The deep gorges of Waimea Canyon State Park are a mecca for hikers, while nearby Huleia National Wildlife Refuge is open to the public via guided kayaking tours.
