Waves shimmy under a pale blue sky. Palms rustle quietly, and plumeria give off a citrusy scent. To see, hear, and smell the islands fully, hand over the logistics to the team of concierges at Hawaii Hideaways. Along with the company's 116 distinctive houses for rent on six of the islands come its curators of all things Hawaiian, with private chefs, jet charter companies, one-on-one yoga instructors, and everyone else, it seems, on speed dial. Dreaming of a luau? Autumn Quintero, the master concierge, says, "I've planned a family celebration with a catered meal of island delicacies and entertainment-fire dancers, a hula performance, Hawaiian music, and lei making and hula lessons for the keiki (children)." Your concierge might send you to O'o Farm in upcountry Maui, where you pluck organic produce right off the plant for chef Sean Christensen to transform immediately, with meat or fish, into lunch. The subtle fragrance? Just-picked asparagus, apricots, and Suriname cherries.
