How To Make Your Maui Vacation More Affordable

We know a Maui vacation can cost a small fortune, and that many are interested in learning how they can have a great time without going over budget. Our first recommendation is that you choose one of our Maui condo rentals so you have a kitchen available and can avoid eating every meal out. You may not realize it, but eating out is a major expense! You can save a bundle by enjoying dinner out in the evenings, and preparing a packed lunch to take along during the day while you’re enjoying all of the fun activities and adventure.

Another way you can save is by traveling with other families or couples, depending on your situation. Lots of people travel in groups, which helps tremendously as you can split the costs of accommodations, car rental, even groceries. Imagine if you were to rent a condo that costs $400 per night and you split the cost with another couple or even two other couples; you’ll save a boatload of money!

If you intend to rent a car, choose one that gets super gas mileage. Gas is high in Hawaii, so go with economy instead of looks. Who cares what you’re driving? You’re in Maui to have a great time!

Use common sense and do your best to avoid getting injured. The last thing you want is a hospital bill, so be careful when engaging in any activities that could result in injury. Whether you’re hiking, surfing, kayaking, biking or enjoying other adventures, always be cautious.

Enjoy all of the things you can do for free on the island. Fun doesn’t have to cost money. Swimming, soaking up the sun on the beach, taking in a gorgeous sunset or sunrise, watching the whales, hiking, snorkeling – there are countless activities that don’t cost a dime.

Finding restaurants with lunch specials and other deals, visiting Maui during the off seasons when everything is cheaper, shopping craft fairs or swap meets for souvenirs; when you make an effort, you can literally save hundreds or even more on your vacation without sacrificing a great time.

If you’re planning on visiting the island in the coming months, be sure to book one of our Maui condo rentals now before they’re gone! We hope to see you soon.

Hopefully you’ve already booked one of our spectacular Maui condo rentals and are well on your way in terms of your travel plans. A Maui vacation is a dream come true for many people, however it’s important to consider safety wherever you go. The people on our beautiful island are friendly and welcoming, the recreational opportunities everywhere you look. We want to help you enjoy your vacation to its fullest with these tips!

There are plenty of places you’ll want to enjoy a walk through, but you’ll probably be glad you rented a car. No matter what your vehicle preference or budget, there’s something suitable so you can travel to areas on the island that aren’t within walking distance. When you have your own vehicle it’s more convenient and you enjoy exploring the island on your own time table. Another benefit of having a rental car is that you can put your valuables in the trunk so they’re out of sight.

There are some wonderful remote areas you may want to explore including the coastal Kipahulu region and the Summit Region, but keep in mind that those who have respiratory problems may not do well at an elevation of 10,000 feet. Haleakala National Park’s Summit Region has been known to drop in temperature to the mid 30’s, although most of the island never gets cooler than 80 degrees. It’s also important to note that the very remote regions are about 45 minutes away from the nearest town.

Love to camp? There are private and public parks in Maui where you’ll be able to experience nature and the relaxation you can only find with camping, and it’s safe – especially if you camp with a friend, spouse or group of people.

Because it’s a tropical paradise that beckons you to spend as much time as possible outdoors, you’ll want to bring along plenty of sunscreen! Whether browsing the shops, lounging on the beach, kayaking, hiking or playing a round of golf you’ll be exposed to the sun. The last thing you want is to spend your vacation with a painful sunburn.

It’s good to know as much about the island and all of the events, activities and experiences you can expect to enjoy. If you’re considering a Maui condo rental, be sure to check out the luxurious accommodations we have to offer!
