BROWSE VACATION RENTALS NOW

Vacation in a lush, tropical island paradise this year. Take your much-needed break whenever you need it to a place full of sand, sun, fun, and plenty of rest and relaxation. When you plan your tropical trip, zero in on Oahu and all it has to offer.  Explore the area around your rental, as well as some of the most iconic places on the island. Don’t miss some of the lesser-known parts of the island or go more in-depth in your favorite locations with day trips from Oahu.

Grand Tour

The tour visits many popular destinations around the island and can help you find where you want to spend more of your time. The tour includes over 15 locations, plus snorkeling, beverages, and snacks. Your knowledgeable guide leads you on a circle of the island, visiting locations like Diamond Head State Monument, the Halona Blowhole, Makapuu Beach, the North Shore, Banzai Pipeline, and many others. The 8–10-hour tour is perfect for all ages. Book your tour online.

Waikiki Trolley Blue Line Coastline & Local Grindz Hop-On/Hop-Off

The line traverses Oahu’s Southern and Southeastern Coastline. The open-air trolley starts the tour from the heart of Waikiki, through Kahala, Hawaii Kai, and along Kalanianaole Highway. You’ll see some of the most famous rugged cliffs and dramatic oceanscapes Hawaii has to offer. On the return trip, “hop off” and experience one of Hawaii’s most famous local restaurants, Kine Grindz, a Hawaiian Plate Lunch, and more.

North Shore Snorkeling & Oahu Circle Tour

The ten-hour trip circles the island and takes you behind the scenes at the Dole Plantation, a coffee farm, and more. You’ll also visit iconic Diamond Head, secret “off-the-beaten-path” beaches and spend some time snorkeling with the fish and turtles of the North Shore.

Hidden Gems of Oahu

There are several tours that take you to some of the “hidden gems” that tourists often miss. You’ll visit locales like the Waimea Botanical Garden/Waterfall or the Byodo-In Temple, Kahuku Farms, and more. The eight-hour journey begins and ends in Waikiki. Admission to locations is included, but you’ll want some spending money for souvenirs and snacks.

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

Hop over to the Big Island and explore. The “volcano-chasing tour” starts in Kona. You’ll see the Kilauea Iki Overlook, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, and more. See the active volcanic landscapes of the area, walk on unique black sand beaches, and learn about the volcanic and other natural activity that’s shaping the Big Island and the entire Hawaiian island chain to this day. Airfare, snacks, lunch, and admission to locations is included in the fee. The trip is 12 hours and leaves at 8 a.m.

Sightseeing & Food Tour

Select companies combine sightseeing with tasting tours. Visit sites like Byodo-In Temple, Koko Marina Center, Dole Plantation, the Halona Blowhole, Diamond Head Beach Park, and more. Sample snacks and treats like malasada & Hawaiian chips, Hawaiian whiskey and coffee, macadamia nuts, and more. Stop for lunch and dessert and enjoy a Hawaii shrimp plate and shave ice or Dole Whip.

Maui & Road to Hana

Hop over to Maui for another iconic tour. While the Road to Hana is “only” 64 miles, it’s full of hairpin turns, one-lane bridges, and plenty of blind spots. You may start out thinking a 25-mile-an-hour speed limit is slow, but you’ll be thankful for it as the air-conditioned tour vehicle twists and turns with the road and navigates one-lane bridges and more. The road to Hana isn’t just driving. There are scenic hikes to beautiful waterfalls, lava tubes and rocks, black sand beaches, and historic sites like Charles Lindbergh’s grave site. The tour includes a knowledgeable guide who will take you to many of the best landmarks and hiking spots along the way. A breakfast sandwich, lunch, water, and snacks are provided. Airfare between the islands is included as well, and transportation to airports can be arranged.

Custom Tours

Many companies offer packages that include specific sites and activities, but you may have some ideas of your own. Companies often offer custom packages, where you can add or put together your own custom tour to ensure you see the sights on your bucket list.

Spend the Day Exploring in and Around Oahu

Vacationing in a lush, tropical island paradise this year means plenty of beach time, but don’t miss the opportunity to explore, and immerse yourself in the culture. Take a much-needed break to a place full of sand, sun, fun, and plenty of rest and relaxation. To experience the Hawaiian and Polynesian culture to the fullest, there is an array of Oahu activities and attractions that tell the story as only a local could.

Luaus

No trip to the Hawaiian Islands is complete without attending a luau! The celebration of Polynesian culture often includes a lei greeting, hula dancers, fire twirlers, and more. Enjoy delicious Hawaiian and Polynesian cuisine, usually served buffet-style. You can find a luau near you, as many hotels and resorts offer them on a nightly or weekly basis.

Bishop Museum

Founded in 1889 by Charles Reed Bishop, it honors his late wife, Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop. The princess was the last descendant of the royal Kamehameha family. The museum hosts an extensive collection of Hawaiian artifacts, royal family heirlooms of the princess, documents and photographs depicting Hawai’i and Pacific Island cultures, and more. It is the largest museum in the state and is recognized worldwide for its cultural collections, research projects, public education programs, and even research projects on the culture.

Queen Emma Summer Palace

Known as Hanaiakamalama, or the Southern Cross, the 19th century structure served as the summer retreat for Queen Emma of Hawai’i, her husband King Kamehameha IV from 1857 to 1885. The historic landmark is an educational museum maintained and operated by Daughters of Hawai’i.

Kukaniloko Birthing Stones

Most babies born on the island today are born in a hospital or birthing center. In the days of Hawaiian royalty, these facilities were not available. While you’re out on a driving tour around the island, make a stop just off the highway between Honolulu and the North Shore. There you’ll find the birthing stones that mark the ceremonial spot where tribal chiefs would have their children. The area is said to have a powerful energy that aided in the birthing process.

Ali’iolani Hale

The former royal residence is now a historic structure, it is now home to government offices. The reconfiguration took place when Iolani Palace was constructed by Kamehameha III in 1845. Today, it houses Hawaii’s Supreme Court, as well as other government offices.

‘Iolani Palace

The palace was home to royal rulers of the Kingdom of Hawai’i from Kamehameha III to Queen Lili’uokalani. Located in the capitol district of downtown Honolulu, it is now a National Historic Landmark on the National Register of Historic Places. It was in use as a residence until the monarchy was overthrown in 1893. It was converted into the capitol building for the Provisional Government, Republic, Territory, and State of Hawai’i and used until 1969. In 1978, the palace was restored and opened as a museum. The building is the only royal palace on U.S. soil.

Sightseeing

Guidebooks often lead you to popular places and other “must-see” destinations where you’ll be dealing with crowds more than enjoying the sight. Take some advice from the locals, including tours run by local companies that know the inside scoop. Some of these companies will take you to places considered “off the beaten path,” giving you a different island experience. They’ll show you these hidden gems, as well as tailor a trip that includes lesser-known hikes, sampling local cuisine, breathtaking photo opportunities, or whatever your exploring heart desires.

Polynesian Cultural Center

Located along Oahu’s famed North Shore, the 42-acre site is brimming with Polynesian culture. Visit six authentic villages representing the tropical island cultures of not just Hawai’i, but also Fiji, Aotearoa (New Zealand), Samoa, Tahiti, and Tonga. Meet and mingle with native Pacific Islanders and learn about the culture, music, dance, and other traditions through hands-on activities. Taste the Polynesian flavors at the Ali’i Luau, a blend of delicious food and Hawaiian entertainment.

Wizard Stones

Experience ancient healing. The monument consists of four large “healing stones” that legend says possess the healing powers of four wizards who visited Oahu. Before swimming at nearby Waikiki, place a flower lei on the stones – just like Princess Likelike, the sister of King Kalakaua.

The Culture of Oahu

Rest and relax after exploring some of Oahu’s culture in a vacation rental by Midway Vacations. From a cozy studio for a solo or sweetheart escape full of cultural excursions, to a 2-bedroom for you and even more of your loved ones, we have a cozy vacation rental that’s just right for your tropical island culture adventure. Arrive and feel the stresses and worries of home melt away and be replaced by the spirit of Aloha. Prepare delicious Hawaiian and Polynesian cuisine in a fully equipped kitchen, then relax in an open living space, or retreat to a private bedroom.

Take your next family vacation in a lush, tropical island paradise. Enjoy a much-needed break with the family and head to a place full of sand, sun, fun, and plenty of rest and relaxation. When you plan your tropical trip, be sure to include a stay on Oahu. You’ll find plenty of things to keep you busy, including plenty of family-friendly Oahu activities for every age!

USS Arizona Memorial

President Roosevelt called the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, “A date which will live in infamy.” The attack marked the country’s official entry into World War II. A visit to the Pearl Harbor National Memorial is something to put on your family’s must-do list, along with a tour of the USS Arizona Memorial Museum, built directly over the wreckage of the warship that was so irreparably damaged, it didn’t see a day of action in the war. A 45-minute guided tour of the memorial hosted by National Park Service members runs daily 8 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Tours run every 15 minutes, and each tour is capped at 145 people in accordance with US Navy and US Coast Guard regulations.

Hiking

While your trip to the Hawaiian Islands will likely include a lot of beach-bumming, you’ll also want to make time to see the sights. A driving tour around the island will give you a good look, but some places deserve more than a glimpse out the car window. Get out and take a hike through stunning landscapes for awesome views you don’t get from the car. Explore trails for beginners, like Aiea Loop Trail, a less than five-mile loop that takes you through some of the island’s native beauty, or the Diamond Head Trail, a great option for expert hikers who want a breathtaking view from the top of the volcano.

Beaches

There are plenty of things to do and see during your Oahu family vacation. Spending a little time on the beach each day is a must. Whether it’s just to sit out in the sun, or you wade into the water for some swimming or other fun, a day at a beach on Oahu is not to be missed. Many tourists flock to Waikiki Beach for the iconic experience. Avoid the crowds and explore other beaches around the island, including the one that’s close your rental.

Wildlife Watching

Charter a boat that seeks out some of Oahu’s sea life. There are several charters that will take you out in search of dolphins, whales, and other ocean dwellers that swim the warmer waters of Hawaii. Don’t forget your camera! You might even win their companionship and be able to watch as they race alongside the vessel.

Coral Crater Adventure Park

Head out on an adventure through Oahu’s beautiful wilderness. The company offers zipline tours (3-6 ziplines), where you’ll be guided through the course by professional guides. The full tour is approximately two hours long. Stay at the park and climb the “adventure tower” featuring rope bridges, ziplines, a climbing wall, and more. Cool off after all the fun with a ride on the thrilling Da’ Flowrider bodyboard wave simulator at Wet ‘n’ Wild Hawaii. All adventures are suitable for guests six-years-old and older. All safety gear is provided.

Iolani Palace

Before Hawaii became the 50th state in 1959, it was its own unified and internationally recognized kingdom. Traces of the monarchy remain throughout the islands, including Oahu. The palace was the official residence of Hawaii’s monarchy, full of grandeur and opulence fitting of a monarch. The restored building in downtown Honolulu is a National Historic Landmark. Two of the island chain’s most notable monarchs, King Kalakaua – who built the magnificent structure – and Queen Liliuokalani, lived in the building.

Snorkeling

The natural beauty of the Hawaiian islands extends to below the waves crashing along its shores. There are a number of tour companies that will take you to some of Oahu’s most breathtaking locations for a look above and below the water. Explore reefs, shipwrecks, or swim with sea life like a variety of fish species or sea turtles! Companies usually provide all the snorkeling gear – mask, snorkel, and swim fins. Some allow you to bring your own snacks and non-alcoholic beverages, too. Check age requirements before booking, some companies allow children as young as three to take the plunge, while others prefer children be eight and older. Make sure to pack an underwater camera to capture the magnificent underwater world.

Bring the Family to Oahu

From a cozy studio for your small family, to a two-bedroom your larger family, Midway Vacations has a cozy vacation rental that’s just right for your Memorial Day retreat. Arrive and feel the stresses and worries of home melt away and be replaced by the spirit of Aloha. Prepare ingredients for a family picnic on the beach, relax in an open living space, or retreat to a private bedroom.

Vacationing in a lush, tropical island paradise this year means plenty of beach time, but don’t miss the opportunity to explore. Take a much-needed break to a place full of sand, sun, fun, and plenty of rest and relaxation. You’ll want to lace up your hiking shoes and find some hiking trails on Oahu beyond the beach where you can explore even more of Oahu’s natural beauty.

Diamond Head (Leahi) Trail

Possibly the most iconic volcano in the region, the trail to the summit of Diamond Head near Waikiki was forged as part of the U.S. Army Coastal Artillery defense system in 1908. The one-way 0.8-mile (one way) trail boasts a 560-foot elevation change from the crater floor. The out-and-back hike takes approximately two hours for a safe and leisurely round-trip. Be prepared for uneven ground and steep terrain, but the payout of 360-degree views of Waikiki, Honolulu, and the surrounding area are worth the effort. Reservations are required to visit, and parking is available to book in two-hour slots.

Koko Crater Railway Trail

The railway “stairs” hike is a short drive from the Diamond Head and Waikiki area. The tough, extremely inclined 2.8-mile out-and-back climb results in reaching the summit of the Koko Head Crater. The military constructed the railway to transport supplies to soldiers during World War II, and the site has seen many other functions until it was given to the City of Honolulu and became Koko Head Regional Park. You’ll experience a 990-foot elevation change that brings you 1208 feet above sea level. Count the railroad ties as you go and find there are 1,048 before another 30-foot climb to the lookout area.

Makapu’u Point & Lighthouse Trail

For breathtaking views of Oahu’s southeastern shoreline, including tall sea cliffs looking out to the blue ocean beyond, this trail is for you. The trail is situated off of Kalanianaole Highway on the southeastern tip of the island about 12 miles east of Honolulu. Makapu’u is a remnant of a volcanic ridge that rises over 600 feet from sea level. The lookout boasts panoramic views off Manana Island and Black Rock Island, as well as views of neighboring Molokai and Lanai.

Kuli’ou’ou Ridge Trail

The 4.4-mile round-trip trail is a short drive from Waikiki, with the trailhead located at the end of Kalaau Place. The moderately-challenging trail features stairs that make for an easier climb in some areas. Keep your eyes peeled for a variety of plants and trees on your way through the diverse landscape. The trail ends at a final plateau boasting breathtaking views of East Oahu. Schedule about four hours for the hike.

Ka’iwa Ridge Trail (Lanikai Pillbox Hike)

The trail is a great way to test your skills with an intermediate level of difficulty. There’s a steep grade throughout the climb, which starts just above Lanikai Beach. The 90-minute round trip offers scenery and breathtaking views, whether or not you opt to extend your trip another hour along the ridge. The payoff at trail’s end is stunning views on the island’s windward side, including the Mokulua Islands, Kailua Beach, and Lanikai Beach.

Manoa Falls Trail

Great for hikers of all skill levels, the trail is more of a “walking” trail than a “hiking” trail. The 1.6-mile round trip has a slight uphill grade that kids and beginners will negotiate fairly easily. The trailhead is located a quick 15-minute drive from Honolulu, where you’ll be transported to the lush, tropical views of Manoa Valley – a truly different world.

Ehukai Pillbox Hike

Get a great view of the crashing waves of Oahu’s North Shore, as well as the Seven Mile Miracle. The 1.5-mile out-and-back trail is a good 90-minute hike. Reserved for expert hikers, there are severe inclines at various places throughout the trail. Those weak of knees, heart, or any other physical challenges are encouraged not to take this trail. Those who can will be rewarded with views of the Banzai Pipeline and Sunset Beach.

Aiea Loop Trail

It’s another trail on the list for beginner hikers. The less than five-mile hike is shaded with flat pathways along the looped trail. Take in the beauty of native trees, lemon eucalyptus grove, Norfolk pine, native koa, and ʻōhiʻa trees. Located on the west side of the Hālawa Valley, you’ll have great views of places like Pearl Harbor, Diamond Head, and the Ko’olau Mountains from the ridge.

Hiking on Oahu

Rest and relax after a hike of one of Oahu’s best hiking trails in a vacation rental by Midway Vacations.

Vacationing in a lush, tropical island paradise for your next vacation no doubt means plenty of beach time. Take a much-needed break to a place full of sand, sun, fun, water, and plenty of rest and relaxation. Then, spend as much time as you please on the beach! When planning your tropical trip, zero in on the Hawaiian island of Maui and its many popular South Maui beaches, as well as some secluded ones where you may be the only one around.

Ulua Beach

If SCUBA diving or snorkeling is on your bucket list for your Hawaiian vacation, it’s a great place to get your feet wet. The quarter mile of sand boasts great snorkeling, swimming, boogie boarding, and more. Dive instructors choose it due to the good beginner-level dive at the outer reef. There are bathrooms and showers for your convenience.

One’uli Black Sand Beach

Another typical bucket list for Hawaiian vacations is a trip to a black sand beach. The beach on the Wailea side of the Pu’u Ola’i cinder cone is considered excellent for snorkeling and diving due to the coral reef. The black sand covers the beach but disappears and is replaced by hard lava at the water’s edge.

Big Beach

The long, wide beach gives you plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the day. Add panoramic views and a large shore break, and the beach is a must-see. Food vendors often operate food trucks nearby, too. Please note, although there are lifeguard stands, this is not a beach for small children or inexperienced swimmers to take a dip.

Wailea Beach

Consistently rated one of the world’s best beaches, it gets crowded with resort guests and their beach essentials quickly. Your perch on the perfect, large sandy area offers views of Kaho’olawe, Molokini, and Lana’i. When calm waters prevail, enjoy a variety of water sports. The beach is family-friendly and boasts amenities like a paved walkway, bathrooms, showers, and a generous amount of free public parking.

Kama’ole Beach Park

The 1.5-mile beach is made up of three beaches, Kam I, Kam II, and Kam III. It is a popular spot for visitors and locals alike due to the views of Molokini, Kaho’olawe, and Lana’i. Boundaries for each beach are marked by rocky points at either end, and each is a great place for swimming and other beach and water activities. Facilities include a large grassy park nearby, a playground, a bathroom, and public parking.

Keawakapu Beach

The cozy beach is a great place for swimming, sunbathing, boogie boarding, snorkeling, or any other beach activity you can think of. Check out the tidepools at the north end or spend the day snorkeling in the area. Rent stand-up paddleboards, kayaks, beach and snorkel gear, and bikes from the nearby Mana Kai hotel at the north end. Hit the showers before returning to your car.

Ke One o Polo Beach

Two beaches in one! The two beautiful crescents of sand are a popular spot, close to Polo Beach Club and Fairmont Kea Lani. You’ll be sharing the water and sand with hotel guests on the north end, but the south end can be uncrowded. The family-friendly beach is great for snorkeling, boogie boarding, or a casual dip. Facilities include a grassy park with showers, bathrooms, picnic tables, and grills.

White Rock

This long, sandy beach is typically uncrowded and normally frequented by locals. The beach has very few public access trails, but when you get there, plan on snorkeling, boogie boarding, or just taking a dip.

Mokapu Beach

The quarter-mile-long piece of sand neighbors the Andaz Wailea Hotel. Make sure to bring your own beach chairs, umbrellas, and other gear, as the ones on-site are for hotel guests only. You’ll find prime waters for boogie boarding, swimming, and snorkeling along the south end. Public parking is shared with nearby Ulua Beach, popular for dive instruction, so come early. There are also bathrooms and showers available.

Po’olenalena Beach

The long, wide, swath of sand is a picture of seclusion on weekdays, but weekends and holidays see a swell of people that will make it hard to find a parking spot. Come later in the day to avoid any crowds and drink in the sunset. Boogie boarding is a popular activity, with waters calm enough for kids and beginners. You’ll have access to a port-a-potty at the north end and a shower at the south entry.

Lazy Beach Days on Maui

While there are many named beaches around Maui, the beach closest to your vacation rental is a great place to start! Choose from a cozy studio for a solo or sweetheart escape full of beach relaxation and fun, or a 2-bedroom for you and even more of your loved ones, Midway Vacations has a cozy vacation rental that’s just right for your tropical island beach retreat. Open the door of your home away from home and feel the stresses and worries of home wash away into the nearby Pacific Ocean and be replaced by the spirit of Aloha. Prepare ingredients for a beach picnic or any other meal of the day in a fully equipped kitchen, relax in an open living space, or retreat to a private bedroom.

Dynamic pricing software has revolutionized the way vacation rentals are marketed and priced, providing property owners and managers with a powerful tool to optimize revenue and occupancy rates. In the highly competitive landscape of the vacation rental industry where demand fluctuates based on factors like seasonality, holidays, and local events, employing dynamic pricing strategies has become essential.

What Is Dynamic Pricing Software?

Dynamic pricing software is a technology solution that utilizes data analytics and algorithms to dynamically adjust vacation rental prices in real-time based on various factors. It is commonly used in the vacation rental industry because of the market’s fluctuating demand and supply. By utilizing a wide range of data points, including historical sales data, market trends, competitor prices, customer behavior, and other relevant variables, the software generates optimized pricing to maximize revenue and profitability.

The software’s algorithms continuously monitor market conditions and adjust prices accordingly. It can increase prices during periods of high demand, such as holidays or events, and decrease prices during low-demand periods to attract more customers. Additionally, dynamic pricing software can respond to changes in supply and demand dynamics, such as last-minute cancellations or unexpected increases in demand, to ensure optimal pricing decisions.

By harnessing the power of data analytics and artificial intelligence, dynamic pricing software enables vacation rental marketers to make data-driven decisions on pricing.

What Are the Benefits of Dynamic Pricing Software?

One of the key benefits of dynamic pricing software is its ability to adapt to the ever-changing market conditions. It allows vacation rental marketers to take advantage of peak demand periods by increasing rates, while also offering competitive prices during low-demand periods to attract more guests. Additionally, the software enables marketers to capitalize on last-minute bookings or cancellations by instantly adjusting prices to reflect the changing availability and demand.

Moreover, dynamic pricing software provides vacation rental marketers with valuable insights and performance analytics. By analyzing booking patterns, guest preferences, and revenue trends, marketers can refine their pricing strategies and identify opportunities for growth. This data-driven approach not only helps marketers stay ahead of the competition but also enhances the overall guest experience by offering competitive rates and personalized offers.

More Money in Your Pocket

One of the keys to a successful vacation rental is entrusting its management to a vacation rental company that utilizes dynamic pricing software for vacation rental marketing. The use of this technology provides property owners with the confidence that their vacation rental is being managed efficiently and profitably, ultimately contributing to the property’s overall success. Utilizing dynamic pricing software will maximize your revenue, optimize occupancy, and provide performance insights, ultimately improving your bottom line and putting more money in your pocket.

Maximizing Revenue

Dynamic pricing software analyzes a wide array of factors, including historical data, market trends, competitor rates, and more, to determine the optimal price for your rental at any given time. By continuously adjusting prices based on real-time demand and supply dynamics, the software ensures you are charging the highest possible rate that guests are willing to pay. This vacation rental marketing strategy maximizes your revenue potential.

Optimizing Occupancy

Dynamic pricing software also considers a variety of factors to attract guests during low-demand periods. By offering competitive rates during these times, you can increase occupancy rates and fill up vacant periods that would otherwise generate no revenue. This strategy helps you optimize the utilization of your vacation rental and generate income consistently throughout the year.

Real-Time Adjustments

The ability to respond instantly to market changes is a significant advantage of dynamic pricing software. Whether it’s sudden fluctuations in demand or last-minute cancellations, the software can adjust prices in real-time to reflect the changing conditions. This agility ensures that you are always offering the most optimal rates, capturing opportunities for increased revenue and avoiding potential losses.

Performance Insights

Dynamic pricing software provides valuable insights and analytics on booking patterns, guest preferences, and revenue trends. By analyzing this data, you can identify patterns, spot revenue opportunities, and refine your pricing strategies. This data-driven approach enables you to make informed decisions that drive profitability and ensure a competitive edge in the vacation rental market.

Dynamic pricing software has become an indispensable tool in the marketing of vacation rentals. By leveraging advanced algorithms and real-time data analysis, marketers can optimize pricing strategies, boost revenue, and achieve higher occupancy rates. In a dynamic and competitive industry, this technology has emerged as a game-changer, allowing vacation rental marketers to stay agile and capitalize on market opportunities. Ultimately, this improves the bottom line for vacation rental owners.
