10 day Hawaii Vacations

Jump to last reply

Ok my friends, to make things short I'm travelling 32 hours and more than 6000 miles to get to Hawaii. It's my first trip to Hawaii and I'm planning to make a tow-island trip, staying the first five nights in oahu, and another four nights in Big Island. I know I'm going to have the time of my life, but I'm a little worried about picking where to stay. Right now I'm between staying in a mid-range price hotel near waikiki beach, or trying to find a condo. I've looking for a condo in a lot of webpages, like VRBO, airbnb, craiglist, ando a lot more, but I'm worried I can get scammed because most of this places don't offer credit card payments ad I've read a lot of bad reviews about this webpages. Does anyone know if I can find some rental offices at the airports where they can let me visit the condo before making any payment?

About the trip, there are so many things to do in these two Islands that I know I'll have to miss a few good places and things to do. So far I got these as must-do things:
OAHU
- Beaches and Snorkeling spots: Waikiki beach, electric beach, turtle bay, Waimanalao, Waimea Bay.
- Trips: Shark Encounter, Zoo, Aquarium, Sea park
- Places: Polynesian Cultural Center,

BIG ISLAND:
- Beaches and Snorkeling: Hapuna Beach, Kahaluu Beach, City of refuge
- Trips: Lava flow tour, Manta ray night diving

Any advice of good things I'm missing?

Thanks for your advices.
