Kahala vacation rentals

An exclusive Hawaii escape

Harboring Hawaii's most exclusive properties, Kahala is an affluent oceanfront community just a few miles from Honolulu. It's anchored by Kahala Avenue, a coastal promenade that's lined with gorgeous waterfront homes. With Kahala vacation rentals, you can unlock access to a host of coveted properties along the strip, complete with lush tropical gardens, sparkling pools, and sweeping ocean views. If you can drag yourself away, Kahala also puts you within striking distance of kaleidoscopic snorkeling, fantastic shopping, and some of the prettiest beaches on the planet.

Sun, sand, and surf breaks

For unbridled fun in the sun, head down to Waialae Beach Park. As well as a golden stretch of sand, the strip is dotted with shady picnic tables and play areas. Surfers should make a beeline for Razors, a local break on the west side of the park. Meanwhile, from its exclusive PGA tournament golf course to its luxe restaurant, the Waialae Country Club offers a taste of the Honolulu high life. Need a dose of retail therapy? While it's not quite as big as Honolulu's Ala Moana Center, the Kahala Mall is packed full of local boutiques and international staples.

A slice of "Shangri La" paradise

Perched on the tiny Black Rock peninsula, Shangri La is one of Oahu's top attractions. The lavish home was designed by celebrity architectÊDoris Duke, and inspired by India's magnificent Taj Mahal. Today it houses Duke's stunning collection of Islamic art, with guided tours available through downtown'sÊHonolulu Museum of Art. While you can't stay at Shangri La, Kahala vacation rentals feature an exclusive line-up of oceanfront estates designed by local architects. To the west of Kahala is Oahu's Diamond Head State Monument, an extinct volcanic crater that towers above Honolulu. The hike to the summit is sweaty, but you'll be rewarded with sweeping and unforgettable views.

Wintering in Kahala

Winter is high season in Hawaii, and Kahala is no exception. From December onwards, flocks of snowbirds and sunseekers descend on Oahu which means Kahala fills up fast. If Waikiki feels a little crowded, why not secure your own slice of paradise with Kahala vacation rentals? The best properties boast private pools and direct access to the beach. Fall is a fantastic time to enjoy a quieter vacation, when airfares drop and there's still plenty of sunshine to soak up.

Swim with sea turtles in Hanauma Bay

At just 6 miles from downtown Honolulu, Kahala offers the best of both worlds. You'll still enjoy a secluded slice of the coast, as well as easy access to top attractions like glitzy Waikiki Beach, dazzling Hanauma Bay, and the Pearl Harbor historic site. For a glimpse at Oahu's kaleidoscopic marine life don't miss the chance to sign up for a dive or snorkel trip. Hanauma Bay is brimming with tropical fish, colorful corals, and the occasional sea turtle or reef shark.
