It's the oldest, northernmost, and perhaps the most beautiful of the Hawaiian Islands
- a so-called Garden Isle where natural wonders are too plentiful to count. Welcome to Kauai, a tranquil, laid-back oasis where sparkling seas, lush rainforests, and knife-edged emerald mountains meet. It's the Hawaii you've always dreamed of - and one best experienced in the comfort of our Kauai vacation rentals.
Where is Kauai?
Measuring 33 miles wide and 25 miles long, Kauai sits in the uppermost reaches of the Hawaiian Islands, northwest of the bustling beaches of Oahu.
The island is roughly circular in shape, with some of its most dramatic scenery in the north, the Coconut Coast to the east, sun-splashed beaches in the south, and secluded nature parks to the west.
Things to Do on Kauai
Between sandy ocean shores and summits that reach up to 5,243 feet, our Kauai vacation homes offer access to some of the most stunning scenes in the Pacific.
You'll find unrivaled beauty on the verdant north shore, whether you set off in a kayak from Hanalei Bay or hike the world-famous Kalalau Trail through Nāpali Coast State Wilderness Park. Snorkel with sea turtles near Ke'e Beach, admire views of Bali Hai from Tunnels Beach, and take a swim fit for royalty in Queen's Bath at the foot of the cliffs in Princeville.
Head east to kayak the Wailua River and mingle with locals in downtown Kapa'a
, or follow the sun south to the family-friendly beaches of Poipu. Leave the crowds far behind you as you drive west to peer into the depths of Waimea Canyon and catch unforgettable glimpses of the Kalalau Valley from the lookout points in Koke'e State Park.
These breathtaking landscapes will lure you back for years to come - discover the beauty of our Kauai vacation rentals today!
