Living the dream on Kauai! With main street spirit rooted in community, these Kauai vacation rentals in our Local Collection give you an array of island life flavors. Instead of staying at one of our Kauai resorts, you will have your own place in neighborhoods featuring everything from the sophistication of Kukuiula to those with laid back charm at Poipu Beach. Go local on your Kauai vacation where casual reigns and creates a breezy getaway that feels like home.
Get in the neighborhood spirit during your stay. Picnic at Kauai beaches, shop at local grocery stores like Kukuiula Market and visit towns with small town pride like Koloa and Hanalei. Participate in a Sierra Club hike at Mahualeupu, join the seasonal humpback whale count, or volunteer with our local Hawaiian monk seal foundation. These are just a few ideas to get you started.
