1. Land meets sea: Private Oceanfront Condo Punaluu Black Sand Beach (from USD 145)

This 1-bedroom beautifully furnished condo is located on the Big Island of Hawaii, and is the perfect base to get to the Volcanoes National Park, which is just a 30-minute drive away. Palm trees, blue skies and a gentle ocean breeze create a tropical atmosphere at this resort. From the lanai (patio / balcony), enjoy the sweeping ocean views that stretch out and blend gently with the mountains in the far distance. Punaluu Black Sand Beach, one of the top ten black-sand beaches in the world, is only a few minutes’ walk away. Chill under the shade of a swaying palm tree or snorkel with the resident turtles. This secluded beach is a hidden gem. The living and dining areas also look out towards the ocean and are outfitted tastefully. After a day of hiking the volcanoes, soak in the hot tub or take a dip in the pool under a ceiling of stars.

2. Top floor tides: Lahaina Condo (from USD 309)

Nestled on the West Coast of Maui, this condo on the top floor will blow you away the moment you step foot inside. Apart from the incredible view, it is equipped with everything you need for a tropical getaway, such as beach towels, beach chairs, and snorkeling gear. Nothing stands between you and the wide ocean … except the balcony ledge! Your private lanai will keep you occupied for hours, whether you’re spotting the turtles in the clear water, being hypnotized by the sound of the waves, or admiring the fiery sunsets at dusk. Enjoy a romantic moment with your loved one with a glass of wine in hand, as you take in the beauty of Hawaii’s sunsets. The interior is decorated according to a tropical theme, and the sofa easily converts to a queen-sized sleeper to accommodate extra guests. Keep the sliding doors open and fall asleep to the ocean waves and the lilting jingle of the seashell lamp on your comfortable king-sized bed.

3. Watch the waves: 1 Bedroom Condo With Amazing Views (from USD 308)

Sitting in the lush tropical grounds of the Kuleana complex, this beautiful remodeled 1-bedroom and 1-bathroom unit is best suited for 2 people, and can fit up to a maximum of 4 people.

Do note that visitors must make their way up 3 flights of stairs to get to the unit, so it might present some difficulties for guests with mobility issues. A large sliding glass door in the living room leads out to the lanai where a canvas of blues and greens await you. Take in the views of the neighboring islands of Lana'i and Moloka'i while enjoying a cup of Hawaii’s famous Kona coffee. The fully equipped kitchen is atmospheric, with the stone accent walls, custom wood cabinets, and granite bar counter top. The essence of the ocean is recreated in the bathroom, which contains a spacious walk-in shower and a marble washbasin in the shape of a clamshell. The trouble with paradise is that the beaches tend to be overcrowded. Here however, you have access to a semi-private cove where you can bask in the sun, go snorkeling with the fish, or enjoy a water sport. From the privacy of your balcony, the impressive sunsets of the island of Maui are the final ingredient to your already perfect day in wonderland.

Amazing panoramic ocean view! Perfect for couples. Just steps to the ocean.🏝

This romantic getaway for 2 is located on a snorkeling bay that is home to colorful tropical fish and corals, protected by an ocean reef just beyond. All you need is your swimsuit; snorkels, fins, beach-reef shoes, beach towels, 2 kayaks, and other aquatic amenities are provided for your use. A private oasis of waterfront calm awaits you. Start your day right with breakfast on the lanai and let a refreshing ocean breeze gently nudge you awake. If you’re lucky, you might be treated to a morning show when fish jump up and display almost acrobatic-like movements in the water. Jump right into the aquatic wonderland at your doorstep. This natural aquarium teeming with life is a calm oasis due to the protection of the coral reef. Marvel at the array of aquatic life swimming leisurely in the shimmering waters. This is nature at its best, upfront and free. After a day of kayaking and snorkeling under the sun, head back to your serene hideaway and soak in the hot tub. Lean back and look up; a glittering sky full of stars will fill your vision. After a day full of wonder, you’ll be pleasantly drowsy, ready to succumb to the calling of dreamland. Sweet dreams.

5. House of royalty: spa boutique resort with private beach (from USD 565)

The Hale Alii Guest House, located on the island of O'ahu, is an idyllic sanctuary for 2. You’ll find everything you ever dreamed of in this luxurious property. Ocean toys abound for your personal use, including kayaks, stand-up paddle boards, wave skis, boogie boards, and snorkels. There are also bicycles for a nice long bike ride along the ocean. Two white crystal and glass chandeliers suspend like jewels floating above the fully equipped gourmet kitchen furnished with top-of-the-line appliances, custom-designed cabinets, and quartzite sparkling counter tops. Day or night, the lounge chairs on your patio offer a lovely spot to soak up Hawaii’s beauty. Be mesmerized by the rhythm of the crashing waves on the shore, and see if you can spot humpback whales exhaling sprays of briny mist in the far distance. Dine outside on your private lanai overlooking the deep blue Pacific Ocean and pristine white sands as the night quietens and the scent of night-blooming jasmine and herbs fills the cool evening air. If it starts to get chilly in the evenings, light the fire pit for a toasty temperature. As the moon casts a silver shadow on the inky ocean and the stars come out to play, retire to the luxurious sleeping sanctuary. The silky 500-thread-count hand-pressed designer sheets adorning the king-sized Power bed will caress you to sleep. The bed even comes with an adjustable remote allowing for head and leg incline. Gleaming mirrors set in a mosaic pattern of baroque swirls, sparkling quartzite counter tops, and a hand-carved solid quartz sink adorn the elegant tempered pewter-colored bathroom. The 8-jet whirlpool tub, which can comfortably fit 2 people, is perfect for a romantic soak.
