November 2019 Hawai‘i Vacation Rental Performance Report

News Release from HTA

In November 2019, the total monthly supply of statewide vacation rentals was 919,100 unit nights and monthly demand was 630,500 unit nights, resulting in an average monthly unit occupancy of 68.6 percent (Figure 1)

In comparison, Hawai‘i’s hotels were 78.8 percent occupied in November 2019. 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 November was $181, lower than the ADR for hotels ($260).

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, 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.

Unit demand was 231,000 unit nights, resulting in 75.9 percent occupancy (-3.8 percentage points) with an ADR of $220 (+2.9%). Maui County hotels were 74.9 percent occupied with an ADR of $354.
