Top 10 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Kilauea, Hawaii - Updated 2021

airbnb Kilauea HI

Sharing the name with one of, if not the most active volcano in Hawaii, Kilauea is a small, laidback town located in the northeastern part of Kauai. While it also features coasts that are prime examples of why Hawaii’s shores are popular among beach lovers, these are not the only attractions that it offers. It was once known as the “Guava Capital of the World”, being the home of Guava Kai Plantation, the largest in the globe. While it has since closed down in 2007, the area was converted into the Wai Koa Loop Trail, a verdant path that forms part of the Anaina Hou Community Park. Another attraction that takes visitors closer to nature is Na Aina Kai Botanical Gardens, where they can take a peek at the number of varieties of flora and fauna in the island. If you don’t want to explore the isle on foot, head on over to the Silver Falls Ranch to go on a horseback tour of the sights in Kilauea. Choose among these Airbnb vacation rentals and see for yourself what makes the town stand out from the other areas of Hawaii.
