Hawaii Timeshare Rentals

Hawaii

Hawaii is America’s string of glitteringly beautiful jewels in the blue Pacific Ocean. All of the romance of the exotic South Seas is here – from Polynesian fire dances to gardens of orchids, to say nothing of stunning sunsets, giant curling waves, and black sand beaches. Toss in hillsides of snowy-white coffee bean blossoms and the spectacular hissing glow of red-hot lava as it plunges into the ocean, and you have what everyone who has ever been to Hawaii already knows – a place like absolutely no other on the planet.

Hawaii is one vacation destination that is really hard to leave, and you’ll want to plan on staying as long as you possibly can. The best way to do that is to rent a timeshare for a week, or longer if you’re lucky! No matter where you rent your Hawaii timeshare, the cost per person will be significantly lower than most hotel rooms. And you get spacious accommodations that truly allow you to relax, with separate bedrooms, a living room, and even a lanai. With your fully equipped kitchen you’ll not only save money by not always having to eat out, but you’ll get the chance to try your hand at your own tasty Hawaiian dishes. Buy fresh fish right off of the boats. Get fresh mangos, papaya and coconuts at the farmer’s markets. Brew a pot of Kona coffee, and you’ll be feasting like Hawaiian royalty!

All of the islands share the similarities of miles of beaches along beautiful coastlines, and soft trade winds fragrant with the scents of orchids and pulmaria blossoms. And each island is also distinctly different from its sisters.

On Oahu you can enjoy exciting Waikiki Beach, the unbelievable surfing waves of the North Shore, and Pearl Harbor with its U.S.S. Arizona Memorial. At the Polynesian Cultural Center you can experience the differences of the various island cultures around the Pacific Rim. Visit the “Pineapple Experience” at Dole Plantation. Have a “wet ‘n wild” experience when you get up close and personal with Hawaii’s marine life at Sea Life Park. And tour Hawaii’s state house, the only state capitol building in the U.S. to architecturally represent a volcano!

The island of Maui is full of adventure. After viewing an awesome sunrise at the top of the volcano Haleakula, whiz down its slopes on a bicycle tour. Step up the excitement of your Maui vacation by soaring above Maui’s lush tropical landscape in a powered tandem hang-glider. If hang gliding isn’t enough excitement, add a soaring glider ride above Haleakala to your adventures

Kauai is called the Garden Island and is considered the most beautiful of all of the Hawaiian Islands. On Kauai the best tourist-attractions are those created by Mother Nature herself. Breathtaking Wiamea Canyon is known as the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific.” The awe-inspiring views of the incredible Napali Coast along Kauai’s North Shore can be enjoyed by hiking, zodiac boat, and even helicopter.

On the fascinating Big Island of Hawaii a must-see is Volcanoes National Park which showcases the results of hundreds of thousands of years of volcanic activity. Here you’ll see roads blocked by recent lava flows, and watch Kilauea, one of the world’s most active volcanoes, which has been erupting constantly for two decades. Leave it to the Big Island to be so diverse it also has one of the largest working cattle ranches in the United States. Join a Paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) for a fun horseback riding tour of beautiful Parker Ranch. ATV tours are also available.
