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.

Kihei has the cheapest vacation rental rates on Maui (due to oversupply of condo's) so unsuspecting mainland tourists think they are getting a bargain. What they find when they get there is over-windy, dry desert like heat and very hungry sharks in the water. They spend the rest of the vacation driving to other parts of the island where the attractions are superior.
