Ok, I legit want to stay in each and every one of these Airbnbs in Kaui! Hawaii is such a stunning place to travel. The different cultures, food scene, and diverse diving mean that it can be hard to remember that you are still in the United States sometimes!
A trip to the island of Kauai is no different. Known as the Garden Isle, there’s a dense tropical rain forest, hiking in the Waimea Canyon, the beauty of the Na Pali Coast, and beaches like Poipu Beach to unwind on.
It’s not hard to see why you might want to spend some time in one of the gorgeous Airbnbs that are dotted around Kauai; here are some of the best ones to make your trip amazing.
Soft grey interiors, bright sunlit rooms, and polished wood floors all add up to a modern vacation rental in Kauai.
Located on the west side of Hanalei Beach on the North Shore of the island, staying in this cute home means being just a short walk from a family-friendly beach.
The large open porch and garden make for the ideal spot to sit with a glass of wine (or a piña colada!) after a day at the beach and relax with your loved ones as the sun sets over the mountains in the distance.
This incredible condo sits on the east shore of Kauai and is such a super special place to spend your Hawaii vacation. Everything in the Airbnb is sparklingly clean and comes with all the amenities you could need during your stay—even a pool!
The best thing about this romantic one-bedroom Airbnb is the view. The beautiful ocean views are awesome—honestly, how could you not just want to sit for hours on the balcony with a book and a sea breeze and then go to sleep with the sounds of the waves crashing on the shore? Bliss!
Vacation rentals in Hawaii can't get more amazing than this. A modernist slice of design that has been recently renovated, this 3-bedroom villa comes complete with a private path to the beach, multiple terraces, and balconies, and an outdoor kitchen illuminated by tiki torches.
End your days of lounging on the sand or exploring the surrounding lush nature by soaking in your very own hot tub under the stars, watching a movie in the state-of-the-art theater, cooking up a feast on the BBQ on a private lanai. Wow—it just sounds like THE most perfect vacation on Kauai island.
This tropical condo is at a more budget-friendly rate for a family or friends/couples traveling together. It's located in the popular resort community Princeville, which means you'll be close to a lot of Kauai's most epic sights, like Queen's Bath and the Napali Coast.
The condo complex also has a pool and ping pong table, and has plenty of beach gear available like snorkels, chairs, umbrellas, etc.
Ok, so if you're looking to get away from it all and out into nature during your Kauai vacation, then this Hawaii one bedroom apartment Airbnb ticks a whole lot of boxes. Neatly tucked away in a veritable tropical paradise along the Wainiha River, this amazing condo has views to die for!
The serene state park-like location means you can swim in your private pool, or relax in the hot tub without worrying about being overlooked or interrupted—it's just you and those mountains! There's even fresh fruit you can pick freely in the garden, a private stream to swim in, and top hiking routes nearby.
Paradise awaits those who stay at this Hawaii Airbnb. Truly. The dazzling blue waters of the ocean are mere steps from the open terrace, there's a refreshing private pool to enjoy and private garden to unwind in—and those interiors are classically Hawaii cool.
Inside, with a bedroom or two free, there's enough room for a group of your friends or family to join you on vacation. Kauai vacation rentals can come at a fairly high price point per night but split the cost with your group and you will all be able to spend precious time together in paradise.
A laid back Hawaii Airbnb in a local neighborhood makes for an alternative to more costly resort vacation rentals on the island. More than just a one-bedroom apartment, staying here means you also get more for your money with two bedrooms and two bathrooms—all just five minutes from Hanalei Beach.
The clean, comfortable, and contemporary house comes with a stack of amenities too. The bikes, boogie boards and snorkels, beach chairs, and umbrellas mean you can max out on the fun at the beach during your stay here.
Oozing luxury from every corner, high-end is the name of the game when it comes to this incredible Airbnb.
Set high up on a bluff overlooking Secret Beach in Kilauea, the beach is less than ten minutes away on foot and the Makai Golf Club is a quick drive away. But who are you kidding? If you book to stay in this jaw-dropping place, you will find it very hard to tear yourself away from the amazingness of it all.
Here, you will get your own infinity pool, a beautiful spa pool, a fully equipped marble countertop kitchen, shiny interiors throughout, and walls that open fully so that refreshing sea breeze can lull you to sleep. It's pretty much the ultimate in heavenly Airbnbs.
Kauai may be pricey, but man oh man is it beautiful. The Airbnbs here is some of the most luxurious I have literally ever seen. Go ahead and make me super jealous by tagging me in your Insta stories and pics (I’m @wtfab) of you luxe-ing out in your fancy Kauai Airbnbs!
