Oahu is the tenth-best U.S. market in which to buy a vacation home, according to VacationHomeRentals.com.
The site’s top-10 list is based on the most popular rental destinations for the month of June, and while it says higher property values make Oahu pricier for buyers, it notes that Oahu is sought-after year-round by tourists.
One listing on the site for a two-bedroom, two-bathroom beachfront unit in Waikiki rents for $2,100 a week.
Year-round attractiveness due to Walt Disney World earned Kissimmee, Fla. the No. 1 spot on the list, with vacation rentals going for $2,800 to $4,100 a week.
The Florida destination was followed by Cape Cod, Mass.; the Poconos in Pa.; Outer Banks, No. Carolina; Destin, Fla.; Myrtle Beach, So. Carolina; Ocean City, Md., Panama City Beach, Fla., Galveston, Texas, and at No. 10, Oahu.
