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.
