Maui Condo Rentals – Enjoy The Beaches Of Maui With These Tips

maui condo rentals

The beautiful beaches are one of the reasons so many people choose to vacation in Maui. Our Maui condo rentals are located right on the beach, so that’s one way to start your vacation off on the right foot! Other than that, we have a little information to help you stay safe, abide by the laws and enjoy the beach scene even more.

Be sure to look for signs that say “public beach access,” as there are no private beaches on the island. If you see a spanse of water and no sign, it’s other people’s private property you have to cross to get there – that means it’s not accessible to you! Abide by the rules.

If you smoke, don’t do it on the beach! It could cost you $500, and all beaches/beach parks are smoke-free areas today. We want to keep our beaches pristine so everyone can enjoy!

Be cautious of the ocean. Conditions can change in an instant, and if locals are staying away from the water or warning signs are posted, you should stay away from the water as well. The ocean conditions in West and South Maui tend to be calmer, but always be careful. You’ll also want to keep your eyes toward the ocean, as you could get knocked down (and even worse) should you be struck by an unexpected and powerful wave.

All of this said, you may want to consider one of the many beaches on Maui that have lifeguards on duty from about 8 a.m. to 4:30 in the evenings. If you’re staying in West Maui this includes the Hanaka’o’o or “Canoe” Beach in Kaanapali and the D.T. Fleming Beach in Kapalua.

When you go into the ocean to snorkel, swim or partake in any water activity, always have someone with you so you can look out for each other. Safety in numbers!

Take these things with you, but leave nothing. Our beaches are for everyone to enjoy, so no leaving behind trash, cups, food wrappers, cans, bottles, etc. What should you take along? A good sunscreen, hat and sunglasses, beach chairs or mats, beach shoes, towels, water to drink and a trash bag so you can take any trash that accumulates with you.

We want you to enjoy the gorgeous surf and sand of our many beaches, but we also want you to be safe. Have a great time creating memories, and be sure to secure one of our beautiful Maui condo rentals well ahead of time so you won’t be disappointed.

Traveling To Maui With The Family (aka Kids) In Tow? Tips To Ensure A Fabulous Vacation

As a parent you know even a trip to the supermarket can be a challenge when you have children in tow, let alone traveling to Maui! If you’ll soon be on your way to this gorgeous piece of paradise, hopefully you’ve booked one of our fabulous Maui condo rentals. In the meantime, we’ve got a few tips and suggestions to help ensure you and your family have the time of your life while you vacation on one of Hawaii’s most enchanting islands!

Consider surfing lessons for the entire family. Although you may not be able to ride a big wave when you’re done with lessons, imagine the fun your family will have (especially the kids). There are several surfing schools on Maui, so regardless of your experience everyone from beginner to more advanced will get in on the water action.

The Lahaina Market Place is where you’ll find charming shops with all sorts of handmade goods from wood carvings, soaps and candles to jewelry and more. Kids love to check out the shops, and another perk is you can book a boat tour as it’s the central point for tours!

A whale-watching tour is one of the favorite activities of those who vacation in Maui, but be sure to check in advance as some don’t allow babies. It’s also a good idea to tell the kids you’re going on a fun boat ride in case the humpback whales decide not to make an appearance.

Consider a condo or resort rather than a hotel. When you have children, there’s lots of “stuff” to consider from pool toys and snacks to strollers and more. You don’t want to spend your time climbing over the beds to get around the room.

Pack a few snacks. While not all eating establishments in Maui are high-priced, many of them are. You may want to bring along pretzels, chips, dried fruit, nuts and other snacks to fill in those times when the kids (and maybe even you) need a little something to fill in.

Be sure to take the Road to Hana! We’ve mentioned this many times in the past, but it’s worth mentioning again. The Road to Hana is an experience like no other. Hiking, gorgeous waterfalls, and hairpin turns are just a few of the things you’ll experience along with caves and black beaches. It’s a lengthy drive, but one that’s filled with magic. It’s a big adventure to say the least, and some areas of the road an be a little nerve-rattling. If you have a child who tends toward motion or car sickness, be your own judge on this one – but it’s really a MUST DO if you can!

Vacationing on Maui with kids can be a great fun-filled adventure for the entire family, as long as you plan carefully. In any case, you’ll want to make sure the accommodations you choose for relaxing in the evenings is spacious, comfortable, and just like home! Check out our Maui condo rentals and you’ll understand why you don’t want to spend your family vacation cooped up in a hotel room.
