Palm trees in a picture-perfect paradise

Perched on the southwestern tip of the island of Oahu, Honolulu is the quintessential Hawaiian destination. Book a Honolulu vacation rental and you'll soon enjoy everything the capital city has to offer, from big city attractions to unspoiled stretches of nature. Few places on earth feature such a landscape where volcanoes and tropical rainforests serve as the backdrop to a bustling downtown filled with skyscrapers. The big draw, however, remains the idyllic beaches, where the palm trees sway in the island breezes and turquoise waters pound the shoreline.

The sun and the sand and a drink in your hand

There's no bad time to book a Honolulu vacation rental as you can relax on the sunny beaches year-round. Those looking to play in the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean have countless chances for surfing, snorkeling, windsurfing, and scuba diving. Leave the water behind and hike up the dormant Diamond Head volcano, pausing to peer inside its giant crater. When you've had your fill of nature, indulge in some retail therapy at the Ala Moana Center, an upscale mall, or visit Waikiki, a neighborhood buzzing with trendy restaurants, shops, bars, nightclubs, and luxury high-rise hotels.

From fallen heroes to penguins at play, Honolulu has it all

Those who want to learn more about Hawaiian history can tour the 'Iolani Palace, the grand 19th-century home of the island's last monarchs. The USS Arizona Memorial honors the lives lost during the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor. Accessible only by boat, the museum's exhibits highlight the events of that fateful day as it straddles the remnants of the sunken battleship. If you're in search of lighter fare, Sea Life Park Hawaii features such marine life as penguins, sea lions, and dolphins, while the 42-acre Honolulu Zoo is home to gardens, a petting zoo, and more than 900 animals.

It doesn't get better than flip-flop weather

There's 1 constant when it comes to Honolulu—the weather. No matter what time of year you book your Honolulu vacation rental, you're more than likely to experience sunny skies and daytime highs in the 80s. Even the evenings are mild, with most nighttime temperatures dipping into the 60s and 70s. If you're visiting between October and April, you might see some rain, however, so bring an umbrella. December is usually the wettest month, totaling a little over 3 inches of rainfall. For the most part, the summers in Honolulu are dry.

There's beaches for sure, but oh so much more!

Honolulu's beaches are the city's most famous natural landmark, but the shoreline is covered in more than just sand. In some parts of the city you'll find beaches lined with grass, jagged rocks, pebbles, and dramatic sheer cliffs. Tropical trees, including majestic banyans and towering palm trees, dot the surrounding scenery, even in the heart of developed downtown Honolulu. If you really want to experience a pristine setting, you can climb the volcanic hillsides of Diamond Head, or visit nearby mountaintop tropical rainforests, where you can hike along breathtaking waterfalls, sleepy streams, and lush canyons.
