Polynesia, New Zealand and Hawaii

Polynesia comprises over 1,000 islands scattered over the central and southern Pacific Ocean and New Zealand and Hawaii lies at the eastern and western end of the triangle. The two places are connected by their Polynesian culture although both have now large population of Caucasians. New Zealand's North Island contains a number of active and potentially active volcanoes, just like Hawaii. The difference between them is New Zealand can boast of geysers while Hawaii don't have any. New Zealand is a country by itself while Hawaii is a state of the United States of America.

If you are from New Zealand or have visited New Zealand before, it should be interesting to visit Hawaii as well to observe the similarities and differences. If you own properties suitable to serve as vacation rentals, you can list them for free at Relocation Rentals for free. Currently, I see only Hawaiian vacation rentals listed there. I think they should include New Zealand vacation rentals as well. I just commented to make that suggestion and wonder if we would see New Zealand vacation rentals being listed on that site in the future.

Anyway, Hawaii is a paradise to visit. Oahu, the third largest island of Hawaii and the most populous, with approximately 75% of the resident population of the Hawaii, is also home to Honolulu, the capital of the State of Hawaii. Oahu's most popular beach is Waikiki Beach.

Hawaii has 8 major islands, all with their different attractions, and at Hawaii Vacation Rentals, you can find links to vacation rentals on Maui, Big Island Vacation Rentals as well as to specific places like Waikiki, Kihei, Wailea, Kanaapali, etc.
