The Coconut Traveler has selected to display What3Words for location maps vs the traditional address. Like many destinations in the world, Hawaii addresses can be difficult to find, signs go missing, vines cover numbers, plus we use a lot of vowels. To solve this, we’ve taken to the innovative, three-word address system of What3Words which pinpoints the precise location of your villa, guide meeting spot, trailhead starting point, and much more.
What3Words divided the world into trillions of 3 x 3 meter squares and assigned each one a unique three-word address. It’s far more accurate than the number and street name system. And it means everyone and everywhere now has an address. Click the link on the villa page to see the exact location of the property. It even works with Google Maps and Waze.

Rates are quoted on a nightly basis. Properties with a valid Transient Vacation Unit (TVU) license may be rented on a nightly basis. Properties that do not hold a TVU license for a short-term rental will be made exclusively available to one party during a consecutive 30-day period. Rent quoted and reservation agreement will reflect the 30-day period; however, occupancy for the entire duration is not required.
Rates do not include Hawaii Transient Accommodations Tax (10.25%), General Excise Tax (4.712%), arrival cleaning fee, or refundable security fee. The refundable security fee will be held in the non-interest bearing, client trust account of The Coconut Traveler or that of the property management company. In lieu of a refundable security fee, you may be offered a non-refundable, insurance policy payment.
Carbon offset payments are purchased through TerraPass using the globally accepted per person per year average of 29 mT, the number of travelers, number of days, and airport origination. If you would like to donate additionally to your carbon offset estimate, kindly let us know. The planet will thank you.
