Need help!!!

by Linda03tennis »

I am playing a family vacation of 4 ( include my 1 year old daughter)to Maui,, Hawaii. I read online that it is cheaper to rent a cando in Maui than to stay at a resort. How do I go about renting a cando. I have searched and searched and is unable to find the steps in renting a cando. Please help.

We rented a condo from friends, however many people like to use VRBO (Vacation Rentals by Owner). There are also agencies that rent condos as well. You will pay a nightly fee, plus a deposit  which is usually refundable and a cleaning fee which is not. You also need to decide which part of Maui to stay - most people stay in either West Maui (Kaanapali and points north) or South Maui (Kihei and Wailea).

Honestly either side is fine, it is strictly a matter of personal preference. We liked West Maui and stayed in Honokawai, and really liked the area around Napili and swam and snorkeled at Kapalua. Other people like the South Maui area, we did not care for it, as one day when we drove down there to check it out they were burning sugar cane in the hills above the area so it was a little dry and smoky. With a baby I would rent a condo, so when the child has to go to bed early you can still sit out on your lanai with a glass of wine and enjoy the evening. Kihei area there does have some pretty cheap condos though.

I would use Vacation Rentals By Owner.  I would stay in West Maui instead of Kihei.  Much nicer beaches and less touristy.  Make sure you go to Hana.  If you can, take a flight in a Powered Hang Glider with Armin Engert.

I would hiighly recommed you spend at least two nighs in Hana or even spend most of your stay in Hana.  You will not age there, it has a timelss ora that cannot be found anywhere else in Hawaii.

Aloha,
