If you’re looking for some quiet communion with nature, this is the perfect place. And if you add a luxury villa, steps from the beach, into the mix, you’re bound to have an epic vacation. Read on as we explore the top beachfront Vrbo rentals in Lanikai, Hawaii, where you’ll find world-class amenities, and you’ll be able to gaze at the ocean waters and even spot a giant sea turtle or two on the shore.
