5 Reasons Why a Hawaii Vacation Condo Is Perfect for Your Next Family Getaway


When it comes to planning a family vacation in Hawaii, one of the biggest things to consider is choosing where to stay. Whether your day is spent relaxing on Maui’s sunny shores waiting to spot a whale or spent snorkeling the azure blue waters of Oahu’s laid-back North Shore, it’s important to come back to a space big enough for the entire family to relax in. And, with most hotel rooms averaging 330 square feet in size, vacation condos prove to be an ideal option. 

Sleeping anywhere from four to six people, most vacation condos offer separate living and dining areas, and fully equipped kitchens, making them a great choice for families looking for extra room. Here are five reasons why you should consider a Hawaii vacation condo for your next family trip.

1. You Can Travel During Peak Season 
With idyllic year-round weather, it’s no surprise that Hawaii can be an expensive vacation destination during the holidays as travelers look for a sunny island reprieve and a chance to escape the harsh winter months. While hotels around Waikiki can be booked months in advance—after all, who doesn’t want to see Santa arrive in a canoe—vacation condos like the Waikiki Shore by Outrigger often have more flexibility, and they offer more in amenities and location for the entire family at a much better rate.

2. Save Money With a Hawaii Vacation Condo Rental
From beginner surf lessons overlooking the rugged Diamond Head crater to cruisin’ along the lush road to Hana, family vacations in Hawaii are full of fun and adventure. But, let’s be real, the expenses can add up quickly if you’re heading to a popular island destination like Hawaii with the kids in tow. Choosing to stay in a vacation condo, especially for longer trips, offers not just more space but a chance to save some money by making your own meals and doing your own laundry—so you save in luggage fees by packing less!

3. There’s More Space for the Entire Family
While there's a definite appeal to staying in hotels, one thing they rarely offer larger families is enough space. Vacation condos, however, offer much more flexibility in the total number of rooms provided, which comes in handy when traveling with extended family. Unit choice condos are all individually decorated and can be beachfront, situated on a golf course, or set on a dramatic lava rock bluff—all you have to do is choose the style that's best suits your family. 

4. You Can Cook Your Own Meals
Dining out for all three meals can add up not just money-wise, but in calories as well. One of the biggest ways to cut down on both during your family vacation is by having access to a kitchen. Spending a day checking out the local farmers’ market or local grocery store like Foodland, which allows you to support local, buy fresh produce and make healthy, home-cooked meals that the entire family can enjoy.

5. The Privacy of a Condo With the Amenities of a Hotel
One of the benefits of booking vacation condos that are individually owned but managed by hotels is the numerous amenities that come along with it. From daily housekeeping visits that ensure your condo is properly sanitized to access to in-room hot tubs and outdoor pools, staying at a condo gives you the perks of staying in a hotel with the extra space that can feel like home.
