Best Airbnbs in Hawaii

Ready for a trip to paradise but not sure where to stay? Don’t worry – we’ve cherry-picked the best of Hawaii’s Airbnbs, from off-grid treehouses to volcanic havens

From Kahuku to Kauai, Hawaii is widely accepted as one of the most beautiful places on earth. And one of the (many) things that makes a trip to America’s Pacific island state so magnificent is being able to stay in some true one-of-a-kind accommodation. Forget your typical hotels and resorts and prepare yourself for a jungle hideaway, a surfer’s beachside abode or a minuscule home at the foot of a volcano (yes, a volcano!). Whatever you're looking for, this stay probably won’t be like anything you’ve experienced before. What’s more, these quirky, unique quarters are the perfect match for exploring a place made of coral reefs, dense jungle, black sand beaches and epic views of lava cascading into the sea. Be warned, it's highly likely that you'll never want to leave. 

Note: please check the latest travel advice before booking.

Bamboo temple

If ‘relax more’ is somewhere on your to-do list, then do yourself a solid and get down to this glorious bamboo temple. With breath-taking panoramic views and a location that is only a stone's throw from a waterfall, this property allows you to take full advantage of the dreamy Hawaiian scenery during your stay. Better yet, you’ll also be looking after it by staying in an eco-resort. This is paradise done the sustainable way, and boy does it look beautiful.

Tiny house on a volcano

You’ll be blown away (very much metaphorically) when you book a stay at this teeny tiny house at the foot of an active volcano. Designed by ArtisTree, which specialises in bespoke treehouses and unique small housing structures, it provides uninterrupted views of the mysterious volcanic landscape nearby. It’s also saturated with natural light and, thanks to its dinky size, is the perfect place for a very romantic, very cosy couples’ escape.

Dreamy treehouse

Live your best Hawaiian life in this insanely beautiful treehouse. Located in a region of dense jungle, you’ll be genuinely off-grid for the duration of your stay. Ascend to your personal sanctuary and take in the 360-degree view of the tropical foliage all around. This place could satisfy your yearning to get back to nature while still making the most of modern eco-friendly tech. Shower under fresh rainwater in the sleek bathroom and bask in the benefits of solar power. You’ll leave glowing, we promise.

Guesthouse by the sea

Nothing says ‘Hawaii’ quite like the ocean. Station yourself at this private cabin and you’ll soon be gazing out across more than 60 miles of South Kona coastline. Your quirky new home is an Old Hawaiian-style place of ‘Ohana’ (family), complete with its own garden of delectable tropical delights, including palm, mango, papaya, avocado, banana and citrus plants. It’s also within a pebble’s throw of restaurants, shops and a weekly farmers’ market. Delicious.

Quirky treehouse

You’ll be off-grid and about eight feet up in the air at this eco-conscious and gorgeous treehouse. The building may be tiny and cosy, but the sensation is one of never-ending space when you look out of the windows and gaze into the endless jungle. The bespoke house has been designed with many beautiful flourishes, including a lava-themed bathroom. And, just to make you feel like a kid again, there’s a swinging bridge and a zip wire!

Peaceful rainforest treehouse

Eight miles away from the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, this gorgeous treehouse is a little slice of ‘perfect’. The whole place is designed with one thing in mind: relaxing. You’re encouraged to find that inner calm by lying back in the Balinese Bale daybed or strolling through the lush tropical gardens – you might even make friends with a gecko or two!

House on a mango farm

This ground-floor retreat is an Airbnb Plus property, promising abundant space, light and the freshest of fresh air. Located in Captain Cook, the house is just a mile away from the stunning Kealakekua Bay, where you’ll find luminous ocean waters and coral-covered reefs. Perhaps best of all, you’ll be staying on an organic mango farm and your living quarters will be in the heart of the idyllic orchard.

Back to basics nature retreat

If you’re in search of an adventurous holiday stay that will submerge you in the outstanding nature of Hawaii, then look no further than this back-to-basics retreat. You might not get all the creature comforts of a bijou stay, but who needs them when you’ve got access to your own private waterfalls and swimming holes? You can also make friends with the owner’s three horses, Nohea, Mahina and Shy Girl.

Hipster surf pad

Yo dudes, if you’re heading to Hawaii with the express wish to catch some gnarly waves, this could well be the Airbnb destination of your sun-soaked dreams. Just five minutes from a secluded beach, the two-storey house is set up with sand, sea and surf in mind. It’s also only ten minutes from the town centre, where you’ll find loads of spots to eat, drink and shop to keep you powered up and ready for another day of shredding the water.

Lava temple

Nature really doesn’t get much more epic than this. If you've got the minerals, you can book to stay just four miles away from one of the most active volcanoes on Earth. No need to worry (no, really): you’ll get all the striking views, blazing sunsets and natural beauty without any real danger. This secret sanctuary is also just ten minutes from the black sand beach where you can swim with dolphins before watching the sky illuminate with millions of stars.

Dreamy attic room

Saturated with light, this attic room grants the visitor views of the treetops and Hilo Bay. This tiny slice of paradise is separate from the rest of the house, giving guests complete privacy. Found in the downtown Hilo area, the property is ideally situated for quick and frequent visits to restaurants and shops. There is also an artist’s studio just around the other side of the building. Perfect for drawing creative inspiration from your surroundings.
