Aloha from the Hawaii Life Vacations team,
We know how excited you must be to celebrate the possibility of travel and to visit Hawaii again. We look forward to welcoming you back.
Our Latest News
Our first priority is the health and safety of our guests, homeowner clients, and our communities.
It's important to note that there's a 14-day mandatory visitor quarantine in place for all new arrivals to the State of Hawaii. The period of self-quarantine will begin immediately upon arrival and last 14 days or the duration of the person’s stay on the island, whichever is shorter.
As an alternative, a Pre-Travel Testing option launched on October 15, 2020. Visitors opting for pre-travel testing must produce evidence of a negative COVID-19 test result. The test must be taken at one of the State of Hawaii's trusted travel partners within 72-hours of their arrival in Hawaii. Trans-Pacific travelers of all ages will be subject to the rule.
A 14-day quarantine remains in effect for inter-island travelers arriving in the following destinations: Kauai, Hawaii, Maui and Kalawao. The quarantine requirement applies to any person traveling to these islands, including state residents.
We are closely following all government and community leadership with regards to safety, and we will adhere to their guidelines. We are now accepting bookings and travel is open to travelers with a verified pre-test.
We understand that circumstances may prevent you from traveling to Hawaii and we’re willing to work with you, while also adhering to all State and County rulings. We are offering flexible cancellation and rebooking policies, as detailed below.
On May 18, Hawaii’s Governor David Ige unveiled a four-phase plan to reopen the state. Here are the key takeaways from that plan and the current travel advisories you should be aware of:
The State of Hawaii is working within the parameters of its original four-phase recovery plan.
All out-of-state passengers must adhere to a mandatory 14-day self-quarantine upon arrival or comply with the Pre-Travel Testing program.
Mandatory social distancing measures and mask-wearing mandates are in place throughout the State of Hawaii.
Hawaii Life Vacations continues to operate in compliance with all State and County rulings.
Airlines are opening back up with limited routes. Please inquire with your travel provider.

Comfort and Safety Update
We are committed to taking every possible precaution to help protect our guests, homeowner clients, and our communities during this global health crisis.

We take pride in the properties we represent, and we want our guests to feel comfortable and at ease when visiting Hawaii.
Our 5-Point Checklist addresses issues such as:
- Personal Protective Equipment

Booking Policy Update
Hawaii vacation rentals have not yet been given permission to fully resume operations under the State of Hawaii’s four-phase plan for recovery.
Our goal is to allow travelers as much flexibility regarding rescheduling and cancellation as possible. With that in mind, we revised our Standard Cancellation Policy with flexible new terms that allow guests to reschedule or cancel their booking 30 days or more from their date of departure.
In this way, you can continue to plan your Hawaii vacation, but also respond to the evolving circumstances we’re all facing. Should continued travel disruptions occur, you’ll be allowed to reschedule or cancel your booking according to our new Emergency Cancellation Policy.
As a precaution, we recommend that all travelers protect their investment with the purchase of a travel insurance policy to cover flights to and from Hawaii.
