Common Questions about Vacation Rental Condos
should I stay in a vacation rental instead of a hotel?
In a vacation rental, you and your family/group can stay together in a furnished
condo rather spending money on multiple hotel rooms. You can stock the kitchen
with all your favorite foods and have great family meals without paying for
room service and gratuities. We like to
think of it as Youre Home Away from Home.
What are the accommodations
and furnishings like?
Each Condo is furnished and decorated differently. You may browse the
property information page to see photos to get a feel for the furnishing and decor.
What is supplied in the Condo?
HI Paradise Rentals provides freshly laundered and sanitized linens on made
beds. Bath sets (which include bath towels, hand towels and wash cloths)
are also provided. Beach towels are not
provided. All of our vacation rentals will have a fully furnished kitchen with
pots, bowls, pans and dinner ware. Our vacation rentals also include a starter
kit of dish soap, dish washing detergent, garbage bags, paper towels and toilet
paper. The starter kit is meant to get you by until you make it to the
store. We do not leave any perishables in the Condo (ie: salt &
pepper). If you would like us to provide certain items before your arrival,
please let us know. Additional Charge

Yes, we have
Safeway, Foodland and many convenience stores nearby. We also have Walmart and Costco in Honolulu.
What if I want my Condo clean during my stay?

cleaned prior to check-in. Mid-Stay
