Celebrate in style at these luxe jet-set residences where you can spend your summer with friends.
If the Grand Pavilion residence in Hawaii is good enough for President Obama and his wife Michelle, it’s good enough for us. Hawaii has always been a popular celeb getaway, but thanks to the spotlight on Obama’s heritage (he was born in Honolulu), it’s enjoying a renaissance.
Obama stayed with his family at this palatial 16,000 sq ft mansion just before his inauguration and we can see why it proved a hit. Overlooking Kailua Bay on the island of Oahu, it’s just the place for a party with an exotic island twist. You and your guests can sip cocktails in the outdoor lounge area, followed by a dinner cooked by your personal chef. Afterwards, a Hawaiian-esque pool party is in order, and you may even spot Justin Timberlake or Harrison Ford strolling along the beach- both have rented properties here.
After slumbering in one of 10 lavish bedrooms, you’ll awake to a mouth-watering breakfast. Then your guests can while away the hours relaxing in the jacuzzi before preparing to say aloha to another evening of pure Hawaiian decadence.
Best Bedroom: The Master Suite, which is exceptionally private (perfect for VIPs) and has direct views of the ocean.
Cost: From Dhs25,000 a night, which includes daily housekeeping and a personal chef for preparing dinner.

We had a wonderful time at Sail Away and I recommended Hawaii Hideaway to dozens of people. You were a delight to work with and I will definitely use you again the next time we rent a home in the islands.
Like a Dream
Bliss doesn’t even describe our experience. It was almost like a dream. We are ready to do this again with Hawaii Hideaways – you guys are the best. Everything was perfect!!!

It was in an outstanding experience from beginning to end, I would work with Hawaii hideaways again in the future unquestionably. Sunny Madeiros was terrific with her recommendations of everything from leisure activities to restaurants and even equipment rentals.

Perfect Combination of Elegance and Comfort
First time to Maui (and Hawaii). This is a spectacular setting and the home is a perfect combination of elegance and comfort. I could stay on the lanai all day long and be happy. Of course there’s a ton of fun activities, but it was great to have Gull Cottage as our base to come back to!

You’re Going to Want to Stay
Our family spent a splendid week in Kauai in early 2017, basing ourselves out of the Touching Green house. It’s in a great location, has everything you need, and is just lovely. The pictures don’t do it justice. You’re going to want to stay!
We had a wonderful time in Kauai! We remained in awe at the unimaginable beauty, both of the rental home, as well as Kauai itself. It will be a treasured memory for life. I hope we can come back and make more memories.
