Oahu: Aina Haina<< Back To Oahu
No Properties Listed
Aina Haina is a small residential community just east of Waikiki on Oahu’s south shore. This side of the island experiences consistently sunny weather and is located next to its best beaches making Aina Haina’s luxury vacation rental properties a popular choice for Oahu’s visitors.
Things to Do
Honolulu is the center of Oahu’s arts and culture scene so art lovers staying in one of our Aina Haina vacation rental homes will want to visit the galleries and artist studios that line the streets of downtown Chinatown. This is also the place to be for the area’s nightlife. Dance the night away to some of Oahu’s best DJ’s or enjoy cocktails on a patio as you jam out to live music. Now in its 100th season, the Diamond Head Theater is Hawaii’s oldest center for the performing arts. The theater puts on six full-scale Broadway musical style performances each season. Golfers staying in Aina Haina will enjoy Waimanalo’s 18-hole Olomano Links golf course with its rolling hills, water hazards, cavernous sand traps and other unique challenges. If you love the outdoors, you can hike the trail at Manoa Falls or make your way to the summit of the Diamond Head crater. One of Oahu’s most famous landmarks is Pearl Harbor. This was the site of the Japanese bombing that prompted the US to enter WWII. The USS Arizona Memorial and the Pacific Aviation Museum detail the history of the events surrounding this historical site. You can take a tour through Hawaii’s past at Honolulu’s Iolani Palace. With a history as interesting as it is disturbing, Iolani is the only royal palace to have ever stood on US soil, and is where Queen Lili’uokalani spent five years imprisoned in an upstairs bedroom after the US annexation. Our luxury vacation rental homes in Aina Haina are fronted by some of Oahu’s best beaches so water activities like kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, snorkeling and surfing are all perennial favorites.
Some of our luxury vacation rental properties in Aina Haina are nestled on their own stretches of sand along the Pacific but there are several other area beaches for those who like to wander. Wailupe Beach Park is good for surfing, kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding, but not the best for swimming. Kailua Beach Park offers a half-mile of powder-soft white sand, calm waters and is a popular spot for windsurfing, swimming and parasailing. Lanikai Beach is located right next to Kailua with the same beautiful sand and calm waters. Waimanalo Beach Park is home to the longest uninterrupted stretch of beach on Oahu making it perfect for a leisurely stroll along the water. With facilities and a lifeguard on-duty, this is a great place for a full day and you’ll often see families picnicking in the park.
Restaurants and Nightlife
Aina Haina’s luxury vacation rental homes are just a short drive from Waikiki, Kahala, and Kailua; all of which offer visitors some outstanding dining options. Breakfast at Jack’s in Aina Haina is a local favorite. Duke’s Waikiki is a great place to enjoy ocean-side seafood, and diners rave about the Kahala Resort’s Hoku’s and Seaside Grill. Kailua is home to Casablanca which serves up delicious Moroccan food in an elaborately decorated atmosphere that transports diners to North Africa.
The Aina Haina Shopping Center is a small community mall but it lacks the variety of shops you’ll find in nearby Waikiki or Honolulu. Guests staying at an Aina Haina luxury vacation rental property love Honolulu’s Ala Moana Center. With more than 300 retailers, the center is the largest outdoor shopping center in the world. Luxury brands like Balenciaga and Tory Burch share real estate with Macy’s, Sears and a host of other great shops
Weather and Ocean Conditions
Our Aina Haina luxury vacation rentals are located on Oahu’s south shore which experiences the island’s best weather! Sunnier and drier than other areas, the temperature in Aina Haina can range from a low of 66 F to 78 F in January, with an average high of 88 F in peak season. Thanks to our gentle trade winds though, the climate is comfortable year-round. Ocean swells are influenced by weather and wind so the ocean conditions can change from day to day. It’s important to take precautions and read the safety signs posted on our beaches as these are there for your protection.
Because our luxury vacation rental properties in Aina Haina are in a residential area, we recommend a rental car for your stay. Taxies and public transit are also available, but having a car at your disposal will provide ease of access to area attractions and all that Oahu has to offer.
