The data was compiled by the State of Hawai‘i Department of Business, Economic Development & Tourism as part of its Hawai‘i Vacation Rental Performance Report for the month of October, which utilized data compiled by Transparent Intelligence, Inc.

Vacation rentals across Hawaiʻi reported increases in supply, demand, and average daily rate, with lower occupancy in October 2022 compared to October 2021. In comparison to pre-pandemic October 2019, ADR was higher in October 2022, but vacation rental supply, demand and occupancy were lower, according to the report.

In October 2022, the total monthly supply of statewide vacation rentals was 650,400 unit nights (+10.7% vs. 2021, -31.5% vs. 2019) and monthly demand was 376,700 unit nights (+9.0% vs. 2021, -45.4% vs. 2019). This combination resulted in an average monthly unit occupancy of 57.9% (-0.9 percentage points vs. 2021, -14.7 percentage points vs. 2019) for October. Occupancy for Hawai‘i’s hotels was 72% in October 2022.

The ADR for vacation rental units statewide in October was $289 (+18.9% vs. 2021, +50.9% vs. 2019). By comparison the ADR for hotels was $338 in October 2022. It is important to note that unlike hotels, units in vacation rentals are not necessarily available year-round or each day of the month and often accommodate a larger number of guests than traditional hotel rooms. 

The data in DBEDT’s Hawai‘i Vacation Rental Performance Report specifically excludes units reported in Hawai‘i Tourism Authority’s Hawai‘i Hotel Performance Report and Hawai‘i Timeshare Quarterly Survey Report. 

A vacation rental is defined as the use of a rental house, condominium unit, private room in private home, or shared room/space in private home. This report does not determine or differentiate between units that are permitted or unpermitted. The legality of any given vacation rental unit is determined on a county basis.
