Here are some stand-out rentals we have recently reviewed that you might like to get started with:

South Maui Vacation Rental House

Hale Palama

4BR Beach House with Pool; South Kihei

This welcoming and comfortable beach house is set up perfectly for family and friends to spend quality time together. It is also within walking distance of shops, restaurants, barrs – and of course – the beach!

Outdoor living space galore! The upper lanai has a large shaded area that’s tailor made for relaxing with a cool drink and a book. The lower lanai, connected to the upper by a few steps, is a tropical garden patio, framed by lush plantings. Plenty of chaise-lounge and Adirondack chairs, the lower lanai is for the sun worshipers – wide-open to the glorious golden Maui sun.

Pohaku House

Pohaku House

Upcountry Privacy on 33 Acres

A unique custom home on 33 acres. This is a private gated property with wide open space in every direction, well beyond your 33 acres.

The custom designed home uses high-end materials throughout. Bamboo floors and ceilings, gourmet kitchen, stone, wood and granite galore.

From virtually every angle you have breathtaking panoramic bi-coastal ocean views, central valley views and West Maui Mountains. Haleakala views in the opposite direction. Enjoy incredible sunsets – and it even comes with a gorgeous horse that you can make arrangements with the owner to ride!

The garden courtyard is the focal point of the complex.

Larger 2BR in Gardens; Central Kihei

This was the first condo I wrote about. I’m not a fan of generic condos, and this stood out to me big-time. It isn’t sitting on one of the more popular South Kihei beaches and it doesn’t have an ocean view…and I really didn’t care.

What does stand out is that it is super quiet, and a really sweet garden vibe here. It is also much larger than most of our vacation rental 2BR units – and it just doesn’t feel manufactured or fake; plenty of real folks actually live here. Price range is also moderate coming in at $150-$200 most of the year.

The beach across the street, while small, and not a touristy favorite, is a cultural treasure that virtually no visitors will take the opportunity to appreciate. Stay here, and you will make that your ‘beach of convenience’ and really come to appreciate the genuine Hawaiian spirit that resides there.

Windward Garden B&B

Windward Garden B&B

A New England Style Bed & Breakfast

Here is something you’ll never see featured among the top of any of the mass-market Maui listings: an off-the-beaten path, totally off-grid, Craftsman style Bed & Breakfast!

Windward Garden has just three rooms and is nicely priced at $135-$165/rm. (breakfast included) or $400 for the entire large 3BR house.

Situated at the bottom of a mile long, narrow, somewhat haphazardly paved road in the jungle, this is very close to the start of the Road to Hana and ironically a quite central home-base for Maui adventurers. Walk to waterfalls, along jungle paths, and to the edge of scenic ocean bluffs. This classy B&B will remind you of New England when you’re inside, and of no where else in the world when you’re outside. Check out my full article here.
