Yes. First, all trips are fully refundable if canceled 30 days before arrival. We also offer Travel Guard with All Seasons Travel Plan (ASTP). This plan offers coverage for unforeseen circumstances that may arise before or during your trips, such as trip cancellation and interruption, medical coverage, emergency evacuation, and more. When you reserve your Suite reservation, you can “opt in” or “include” the ASTP. The cost is 7% of the reservation/booking fee. Read more about the benefits.
One of our biggest differences is that we are much more than an online portal of vacation rentals. Instead, we offer a new luxury experience. We focus on making sure that the trips and accommodations we offer truly exceed your expectations. We do this by personally vetting – or curating – each Experience we offer to make sure that they meet our high standards. Even though we are expanding our locations, we specialize in travel to Australia, Hawaii, and India. We know these regions inside and out and pass along our expertise to you.
In addition, we offer personalized Concierge Service, so you have all the help you need to plan the experience of your dreams. Need travel insurance? Even though all trips are fully refundable up to 30 days before arrival, we offer a travel plan to cover unforeseen circumstances.
The weather is most comfortable during spring (September-November) or fall (March-May). In the winter (June-August) temperatures are cool but not cold. The Summer months (December-February) are hot. Keep in mind that temperatures vary depending upon where you are traveling in the country.
Yes, if you are traveling from the United States. Power outlets accept only flat two- or three-pin plugs. To protect your electrical devices, use a transformer for devices that do not accept both 240V and 110V.
When dialing Australia, use 011 first to dial another country. Then, 61 is the country code for Australia. Next, enter the region’s area code. For example, 07 is the area code for Queensland (drop the zero when calling from the US). Finally, enter the 8-digit number.
Yes. If you have a US passport, you will also need to obtain a visitor visa
The Australian dollar is the currency of Australia. Any trip to Australia will require this currency, even if you plan to rely on your debit or credit cards. Note that Visa and Mastercard are the most widely accepted credit cards. On the other hand, Discover cards are not commonly accepted. You can change your US dollars before you leave or when you arrive in Australia.
No. You do not need any special vaccinations before traveling.

Yes, as long as it is current. Always carry your passport and license together when driving.
If you want to make a call, play music, or use your phone’s GPS it must be operated hands-free or be placed in a cradle.
The surf can be rough and can deteriorate quickly. Furthermore, many beaches have rip tides that can pull a swimmer out to sea. It is best to swim at beaches that are patrolled by lifeguards. Always pay attention to signage and heed warnings if a beach is closed. This usually means that the water is too dangerous to swim in. You might see the red and yellow flags. These indicate safe areas for swimmers.
Always take precautions to protect yourself from the strong UV rays of the sun. The UV exposure is greatest between 10 am and 3 pm. The Australian Cancer Council recommends covering arms and legs, wear a hat, use sunscreen with at least SPF 30, and seek shade. Drinking plenty of water will help too.
Suites are privately owned vacation rentals that offer incredible privacy along with the very best "home away from home."
The temperature ranges from 80-89 degrees Fahrenheit. During cooler months (November-March) the temperature can dip down to 66-75 degrees.
The best way we can describe this location is the Gold Coast on steroids. Waikiki's a tightly knit neighborhood built on what was originally royal Hawaiian land. Most tourists stay on Oahu when they visit Hawaii.
When you visit, you will enjoy sunrise swims and surfing, afternoon beach activities, torchlit dinners with fireworks, postcard sunsets, hula dancing, and authentic Hawaiian music. Waikiki's an international tourist hot spot but maintains a tight neighborhood feeling.
We recommend the following locations. Each place is markedly different and will greatly shape your holiday.
Kailua, East Oahu: This location is famous for two beautiful beaches (Kailua Beach and Lanikai Beach), the two Mokulua islands, and a gorgeous ridge hike called Lanikai Pillbox. It’s a 20-minute drive from Waikiki, and hotel and resort options are extremely limited. Stay tuned for new inventory announcements as we expand our Suite Vacation Rental Experiences to this region of the island.
North Shore Oahu: Once a fishing village, Haleiwa is now a laid-back, touristy surfing town. You'll find small, local shops, food trucks, shaved ice, and water activities. It's also a short bus or drive from all the top surf beaches like Banzai Pipeline, Sunset Beach, Waimea Bay, and beaches with Hawaiian green sea turtles. Check out our in-depth guide to North Shore Oahu.
West Side Oahu: This is a beautiful region, but it’s a bit out there! There is a Disney Resort and a Four Seasons. Like in Kailua, vacation rentals are also available. If you are staying on the west side, we recommend hiring a car, using a shuttle service, or purchasing activities to leave the resort and see the rest of Oahu. Taking a bus or taxi from this island location to see the rest of Oahu is not practical.
When dialing Hawaii, 1 is the country code, and 808 is the area code.
The Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) is an automated system that can determine the eligibility of visitors to travel to the United States under the Visa Waiver Program. The Visa Waiver Program allows citizens from 38 different countries to travel to the US for business or tourism for stays of up to 90 days without a visa. Check here to see if you can apply for an ESTA.
Yes. Hawaii's sales tax, or general excise tax (GET), is 4.712%.
It is illegal to hold a cell phone while driving. Any cell phone usage by drivers must be hands-free. It is also illegal to cross streets while talking on a phone. If caught the fine can be between $15 and $99.
Illegally crossing the street outside of a designated zone (jay walking) or against the cross-walk light could result in a $140 fine.
Yes. Seat belts are required by drivers and passengers in cars. Interestingly, no seat belts are required while riding in a truck bed.
A person must be 18 years old to buy tobacco products. Smoking is illegal in public, unless in a designated smoking area. There is no smoking on the beaches.
Cannabis use is legal when a licensed medical professional approves it, and the user has a medical card stating such. Cannabis is NOT legal for recreational use. Even if you have a medical card, you cannot smoke cannabis anywhere in public unless in a designated smoking area.
A person must be 21 years old to buy alcohol. When buying alcoholic drinks at a bar, almost all bars limit patrons to one drink per order. Staff will often ask to see every person getting a drink to make sure that patrons are not ordering more than one drink for themselves. Walking around with open containers of alcohol is also prohibited.
Don’t drink and drive. Blood alcohol concentration for driving under the influence (DUI) is 0.08.
All beaches in Hawaii are public, and most are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. If a beach has specific hours for access, there will be clear signs posted. If a beach is closed, it is likely because beach conditions are unsafe (which means it can be deadly!)
Also, glass containers of any kind are NOT allowed on the beach. When visiting the beach, please leave all glass containers in your vehicle or at your hotel, resort, or vacation rental.
No. Removing rocks, especially lava rocks, from Hawaii is illegal.
Don’t fall victim to Pele’s Curse! As legend tells, Pele – the Hawaiian goddess of fire, lightning, wind, dance, and volcanoes – will bring years of bad luck to guests who remove pieces of her island.
Because it has diverse weather patterns, the best time to visit India is from October to March when the temperatures are at their most mild. There are three main seasons in India: summer (March-May), winter (November-February), and monsoon (June-October).
English is commonly spoken throughout India.

India is generally safe. As with travel in any part of the world, it is wise to be aware of your surroundings and to monitor your belongings.
It is best to drink bottled water while visiting.
There are drinking laws throughout the country. Different states may have designated dry days when the sale of alcohol is forbidden.
