Things to Keep in Mind when Booking Kauai Vacation Rentals
Because Kauai Vacation Resortís vacation home listings are from private owners, the terms for each listing will vary. Guests should always check when deposits are due to hold a reservation and whether there is a fee to change or cancel reservations. Some hosts charge a fee for cleaning or may request a security deposit to cover possible damages.
A private home or cottage for rent by the owner typically will not have the extras on hand for children that hotels commonly provide, like high chairs and strollers, although some hosts may be able to arrange for these items to be available upon request.
With Kauai Vacation Resortís choices of homes, cottages, studios, B&B lodgings, and condos for rent by owners, vacationers can turn an otherwise generic Kauai getaway into the personalized vacation of a lifetime.
