Great Tips For Choosing The Right Maui Condo Rental

We know searching for accommodations when you’re planning a vacation on Maui can be overwhelming, given all of the resorts, condos, hotels, private houses, and other options. By the time you’ve finally chosen a place to stay, you actually NEED a vacation to get rid of the stress. Our Maui condo rentals make the choice easy, but we do have a few tips to help make your search easier and more fun.

First, location, location, location. Yes, you’ve heard it before but it’s so important to choose a location you’ll love. Do you prefer to be in the mix of things, or be a bit more secluded? What about easy access to dining, shopping, golfing, or other activities? How far will you have to drive to get to the beach, if at all? Do you want quiet surroundings but at the same time close proximity to the main attractions? No one wants to spend their vacation in a room without a view, or in a location where everything they want to see and do is miles away.

Room accommodations. While you certainly won’t be spending all of your time inside your vacation rental, you do want accommodations that make you comfortable and provide everything you need. Two bedrooms, or three? Do you prefer a fully equipped kitchen so you can cook a few meals instead of eating out constantly? What about a separate living room where you can enjoy the late evening after the kids are in bed? Would you love to be near the pool, or have a fantastic oceanfront view? You won’t find many of these luxuries in a hotel, so consider all the factors that will make your vacation most enjoyable.

Amenities and cost. Need a high chair for your toddler so dinnertime is easier? What about a gym or spa located on the premises, or a restaurant nearby where you can enjoy a drink or fine meal in the evening? Cost is another factor that often comes into play, as many people mistakenly assume a Maui condo rental will cost an arm and a leg when compared to a hotel. Considering all of the amenities, the fact that you have a kitchen that makes it possible to cook when you want to, and not having to rent a car, buy gas, and all of the other costs associated with staying in a location that’s not really where you want to be because it’s cheaper, can end up making it more expensive in the long run – not only in terms of money, but also your enjoyment.

At Honua Kai’s Finest we provide luxurious condo suites with all of the comforts of home on the fabulous Ka’anapali Beach. Before you choose your vacation rental, be sure to browse our beautifully appointed condos!

Where To Stay When Vacationing In Maui? So Many Choices…

vacationing in maui

Maui is a huge attraction for those vacationing over the summer months, during Spring Break, or really any time of the year given the warm, comfortable climate. In fact, each year there are more than two million vacationers who have to make the difficult choice of accommodations. While we naturally recommend our Maui condo rentals, we thought it would be a good idea to open up your eyes to all of the possibilities…so many choices, so little time!

When it comes to vacation rentals in Maui, you may be overwhelmed at all of the options. Between private rental homes, resorts, hotels, condominiums, and bed and breakfasts, how can you possibly choose? First of all, think of how many are in your party; if you have a large family, several children, or are bringing along a few friends, chances are you won’t want to choose a hotel. Why? It’s cramped, you’ll likely have to rent several rooms (which can get costly), and you’ll be eating out every meal or bringing something in considering there’s no kitchen in most hotel rooms.

What you really want are wonderfully appointed, comfortable accommodations that leave you wondering how soon you’ll be able to return when it comes time to leave. Our Maui condo rentals offer a feeling of luxury, and include all of the features that make your stay truly relaxing and comfortable. Don’t want to go out to dinner after a fun-packed day in the sun? No worries when you have a fully appointed kitchen at your fingertips!

While there are literally thousands of hotels and resorts in Maui for every budget or location need, the most elaborate (including our luxury condo rentals at Honua Kai’s Finest) are located in West Maui. In fact, we’re right on the Ka’anapali Beach! It just doesn’t get much better than this when you’re vacationing on our beautiful island.

When you begin to research vacation rentals online while planning your trip, you’ll come across terms such as “beachfront,” “ocean view,” “oceanside,” and “partial ocean view” more times than you can count. What does all this terminology actually mean? This is important when you desire to be near the beautiful waters of the ocean.

Basically, the term “oceanside” means your accommodations face the ocean, but it doesn’t mean it’s located on the beach, although it may be. If you want to ensure you’re on the beach, look for the term “beachfront.” If the description of the condo, resort, or other rental includes “ocean view” it usually means that the rental is in the vicinity of the ocean; for instance, you may be able to see it from your balcony across the street, or a block or two away. Partial ocean view means just that; you won’t have a panoramic view, but you may be able to view at least a section of the ocean.

Most people think a Maui condo rental is way out of their budget. The fact is, it’s no more expensive than paying for two or three hotel rooms if you’re bringing along a large family or friends – and the bonus is you can save money on eating, as you can cook your own meals when you want, instead of being forced to eat out every meal. Considering the comforts of home, we think you’ll see there really aren’t so many choices when it comes to your total enjoyment of vacationing in Maui.

Maui Condo Rentals – Make Sure Your Vacation Is Everything You Dreamed Of

maui condo rentals

You’re ready to spend a relaxing, fun vacation on a beautiful, tropical island. You’re considering Maui condo rentals, but before you jump in and book the first one you come across, be aware that not all are equal! You don’t want to get scammed, and you do want to explore various options. We have a few suggestions below we think you’ll find helpful when it comes to finding the perfect vacation rental.

First of all, when you come across a website with condos that interest you, see if there are any reviews – and read them! Lots of good reviews is usually a good sign. That site with only three or four? You can’t always trust the reviews are genuine. You can find lots of helpful information about a facility online, both good and bad. Do your due diligence to ensure you love your Maui condo!

Do the listings include pictures? If not, there’s no telling what you’ll find when you arrive. No one wants to spend money on what they believe will be a beautiful condo with spectacular views, only to find a dump when they get there, with views of the parking lot. We provide plenty of photos of our rentals, so you know exactly what to expect! In fact, we take you on a virtual tour.

When you do find the perfect accommodations, book early. It isn’t unusual for waterfront properties to be booked well in advance; in fact, if you’re planning a trip to Maui this summer, you’ll want to book now, as many vacationers start securing their condo rentals in January or February, or even an entire year in advance!

Get all of the details in writing. The majority of people book their vacations online today, rather than over the phone. This is great for you because you will have all of the e-mail correspondence – confirmation, dates, etc. Should you book your rental over the phone, outline all of the key points and details discussed and shoot an email to the person you spoke with, requesting that he or she confirm these details via an email. Print out or save all of the correspondence so that you have everything in writing.

You may want to pay with credit card or PayPal, as it’s easier to recover your payment should anything go wrong. If you have questions about a rental, never be afraid to ask! A reputable owner or company will be happy to supply you with all of the information you need.

At Honua Kai’s Finest, our Maui condo rentals are exactly what you would expect, and luxuriously appointed for the ultimate in comfort and relaxation at the end of the day. Check out our photos, reviews, and other information for your convenience – and don’t forget to book your vacation rental today!
