Questions and Answers about Vacation Rentals on Kauai 

One of the finest ways to enjoy the Garden Island of Kauai is to stay in a Kauai vacation rental that provides you with luxury living including all of the comforts of home and much more.

Here are some general tips to answer questions you may have about staying in Kauai vacation accommodation.



Do I need to plan far in advance to book a vacation rental on Kauai?

Booking an accommodation well in advance of your trip is highly recommended to make sure you have a wide selection of Kauai Vacation Rentals to choose from at reasonable prices. 

Many excellent accommodations are also available on short notice, however. Sometimes great Kauai vacation rentals will suddenly become available due to a cancellation, so if you are booking on short notice give us a call at Bali Hai Realty and we can tell you what is available.

During the peak travel seasons it is best not to take any chances. Reserve a Kauai vacation rental at least two months in advance or more if possible.

If reserving a Kauai vacation accommodation is not feasible, however, and you need a bit more time to confirm your vacation home then give us a call. There is still a great chance we can find just the right accommodations for you to enjoy your Kauai vacation.

When are the peak travels seasons on Kauai and is it good to travel during these times?

The peak travel seasons to the island of Kauai include the periods extending from mid-December to January and from June until mid-September. The low seasons are from January to March, and from November to mid-December.

There are also shoulder seasons which see a moderate level of travel. These shoulder seasons include the period from the middle of September to October, and also April and May.

Hawaii’s beaches are so expansive that crowds are usually never a problem. While you may be able to find cheaper flights and get slightly better rates on accommodations during a low travel season, there are plenty of high quality accommodations available throughout the year.

If you are traveling during a peak season make sure to reserve your Kauai vacation rental as far in advance as possible.

If we are coming with another family or couple, do you recommend that we share one large Kauai vacation rental or each rent our own accommodations?

Sharing a vacation rental may initially seem like a good idea as you will be spending plenty of time with your friends anyway, so why not just stay together?

However couples and families often appreciate a chance to have some privacy and space to unwind after adventurous Kauai days. If each family can each secure its own vacation accommodation it is usually preferable so that you can avoid feeling crowded.

With your own places you will each be able to share the duties of entertaining each other in your accommodations while also enjoying some privacy and personal space, and you will also be assured that there won’t be any disputes over the finances.

That being said, sometimes larger groups desire to stay together in one location, and Coldwell Banker Bali Hai Realty offers ideal large luxury vacation rentals that will accommodate big groups and still provide plenty of room for everyone. Also ask us about our accommodations for corporate retreats.

Why should I reserve a Kauai vacation rental through Coldwell Banker Bali Hai Realty rather than search for homeowner-run vacation rentals with their own websites?

Quality control is the primary reason, along with the security of dealing with an established company known for its professionalism and honesty for more than three decades on Kauai.

From the rental contract to the assurance that things will be ready for you as promised when you arrive, there are many benefits to renting with Coldwell Banker Bali Hai Realty rather than risking your vacation’s success on the word of a stranger, especially when there may be a contract and a significant amount of money involved.

When booking a Kauai vacation rental directly with a homeowner you also have to be aware if there is any possibility of a foreclosure on the property between the time you book the rental and the time you visit. In this economy there are some distinct benefits to dealing with a reputable, well-established local company.

Coldwell Banker Bali Hai Realty is also deeply involved in local charities. We make extensive contributions in the Kauai community not only with substantial cash donations but also hands-on, with all of our employees participating directly in community service projects. We have 20 long time employees who work together as one ohana (family), and this extends to our work for Kauai charities.

Supporting our team does indeed support the Kauai community including those on the Garden Island who most need assistance such as Wilcox Hospital, the Salvation Army, YMCA, and Habitat for Humanity.

Coldwell Banker Bali Hai Realty has a proven track record of serving the real estate needs of the Kauai community for more than 30 years. We provide a strong sense of care and connection for our Kauai real estate and vacation rental clients, who we also consider to be our ohana.

Reserving a Kauai vacation rental with us is highly preferable to trying to negotiate the many details of your reservation with a homeowner whose expertise may not be in the area of providing luxury accommodations to visitors, and who may even be an absentee owner who lives on the mainland.

The Kauai vacation rental staff at Coldwell Banker Bali Hai Realty will also provide you with concierge services to arrange for Kauai activities, private fitness sessions, yoga, massages and treatments, surf lessons, personal grocery shopping, private chef services and more.

With Coldwell Banker Bali Hai Realty, if there is a problem we will be there to deal with it. Our primary goal is your satisfaction, and we want you to have a wonderful and memorable visit to the Garden Island.
