    Top 5 Tips For Planning Your Next Hawaii Vacation Condo Getaway

    From multiple bedrooms and fully stocked kitchens to in-room washers and outdoor balconies with sweeping Pacific Ocean views, opting to stay in a vacation rental is a great choice for family vacations in Hawaii. The right vacation rental not only provides you with a variety of helpful amenities, but best of all, there's enough space for everyone to decompress after an afternoon of learning how to surf at Waikiki Beach or exploring the tide pools along Kauai's pristine coastline. 

    Choosing to stay in a Hawaii vacation condo requires a little more planning than staying in a regular hotel. Here are five tips to make the best of your next vacation rental getaway.

    Find Out About the Neighborhood 

    From beachfront access to restaurant row, convenience in location for your Hawaii vacation condo is important, whether you're with the kids in tow or not. Doing a little pre-vacation research is key to a successful vacation, especially if you plan to skip the car rental. It can help you find out more about the neighborhood, including access to public transportation, major attractions and grocery stores, so you're not left scrambling to figure things out when you get there.

    Pick Your Favorite Style of Condo

    Apart from having more space during your family getaway, Hawaii vacation condos also offer you the choice to select your own uniquely decorated space. So whether you're seeking unforgettable ocean views or specific in-room amenities, be sure to read through each of the property's individual listings as unit choice condos differ in furnishings from one unit to the next.

    Don't Forget the Detergent 

    When it comes to family vacations, nothing beats the convenience of having a vacation condo with an in-unit washer and dryer. There's nothing better than having clean laundry during your trip, and you can pack less meaning you can also end up saving on baggage fees. Packing a couple of your favorite dryer sheets and laundry detergent pods will save you from having to buy some while on holiday.

    Pack a Few Reminders of Home 

    Whether you've spent an adventurous day hiking Oahu's numerous trails or whale watching from Maui's Auau Channel, there's no better feeling than getting to unwind at 'home.' For a truly seamless integration into condo living for all members of your family—especially for kids, who can sometimes struggle to adjust to new settings—make sure your packing list also includes a favorite pillow, blanket or stuffed animal.

    Make a Trip to the Grocery Store

    From hearty daily meals to quick mid-day snacks, having access to a kitchen for the duration of your getaway can be a real money saver. Take a trip to the nearest grocery store so you can stock up on all the staples like bread, eggs, milk, fresh vegetables and fruit, for the duration of your stay. Hawaii Vacation Condos by Outrigger partner with Foodland to give guests extra savings. And, don't worry about cleaning supplies—Hawaii vacation condos follow strict sanitation protocols before, during and after your visit.
