The top-trending vacation rental destinations in the world include Kihei, Maui, at No. 6 and Honolulu at No. 8, according to users of vacation rental site FlipKey.com.

The top spot was grabbed by Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, which site officials attribute to travelers’ interest in next year’s soccer World Cup.

Miami Beach and Orlando/Kissimmee, Fla., placed second and third on the list, respectively, while Naples and Key West, Fla., ranked fourth and fifth above Kihei, which is on the list for the second consecutive year, as is Kissimmee.

Both destinations dropped in rank year-over-year, as Kissimmee was No. 1 for 2013, and Kihei was at No. 5.
