With a population of just over 10 thousand people, Kapaa, Hawaii, is a beautiful place on the coast. The word “Kapaa” means “solid” in Hawaiian. Kapaa is a great location for a Hawaiian getaway because it encompasses everything great about Hawaii, like the beautiful green surroundings, blue ocean waters and of course, the friendliest of locals. But it also has the benefit of not being a major city so the tourist count is a little lower here, making your experiences in Kapaa a little more authentic. Check out the Kapaa Beach Park or the Pono Market to stock up on goods, or trek out to the Ho'opi'i Falls and take in its beauty. Here’s a list of the best Vrbo accommodations in Kapaa, Hawaii, offering wonderful options of places to stay.

1. Direct oceanfront views (from USD 175)

This small and cosy unit is perfect for your romantic getaway in Kapaa. The condo is part of a building and the unit itself faces the ocean so you can wake up in the morning to the sights of the sun beaming off the water. Each condo has its own private balcony where you can enjoy the sunrises with your morning coffee, or relax and watch the sunset with a glass of wine. The onsite tiki bar is there for guests to get a cocktail and there is also a pool on site, so you can lounge back with said cocktail and work on your tan.
