January 2020 Hawai‘i Vacation Rental Performance Report

News Release from HTA, February 24, 2020 

In January 2020, the total monthly supply of statewide vacation rentals was 797,300 unit nights and monthly demand was 657,900 unit nights, resulting in an average monthly unit occupancy of 82.5 percent (Figure 1). In comparison, Hawai‘i’s hotels were 84.1 percent occupied in January 2020. It is important to note that unlike hotels, condominium hotels, and timeshare resorts, vacation rental units are not necessarily available year-round or each day of the month. The unit average daily rate (ADR) for vacation rental units statewide in January was $247, lower than the ADR for hotels ($314).

HTA’s Tourism Research Division issued the report’s findings utilizing data compiled by Transparent Intelligence, Inc. The data in this report specifically excludes units reported in HTA’s Hawai‘i Hotel Performance Report and Hawai‘i Timeshare Quarterly Survey Report. In this 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 also 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.
