The rental's big, open-plan living room and dining room includes a bar that transitions to the kitchen. So if you're the designated bartender, just slide those drinks on over. The bar's also a great gathering placepersonally, I use it to chat with my kids and grandkids while I'm making dinner. The living room itself is filled with gorgeous, atmospheric bamboo and rattan so you know you've made it to Hawaii; a sliding glass door lets you onto the lanai. Finally, if you need a break from the beach during your vacation, there's a TV/DVD/CD player.
