How To Make Your Maui Vacation More Affordable

maui vacation

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.

Enjoy Your Maui Vacation Even More With These Safety Tips

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!

If you have an upcoming vacation planned in Maui, you’ve probably already thought about the many activities your family will enjoy like surfing, snorkeling or maybe even taking a helicopter tour. What you might not have considered (or maybe weren’t even aware of) is a submarine tour in Maui! If you’re staying on the island’s west side in one of our Maui condo rentals, you won’t have to go far to experience the thrill of a lifetime as submarine tours depart from the Lahaina Harbor each morning and afternoon.

Imagine experiencing depths of about 100 feet without having to get wet! Submarine tours are fun, but even better they’re great for kids because it’s so educational. From colorful fish to coral formations on the sunken Carthaginian and even the occasional shark, you’ll see rays, eels, turtles and all of the beauty that lies below the water’s surface. This is an opportunity to explore marine life and get an up-close and personal glimpse of the beautiful world that exists below from the safety and comfort of a climate-controlled cabin.

Vacationing in Maui is all about fun in or on the water, gorgeous beaches and exploring all the island has to offer. Whether you plan to snorkel, explore on a mountain bike, kayak, ride a zipline, enjoy a dinner cruise, surf, or just soak up the sun and try out local cuisine, you definitely want to add a submarine tour to your list! If you schedule your vacation during the winter season, the odds are good you’ll even see a whale or two during your underwater excursion.

While there are countless places to stay from hotels to house rentals, our Maui condo rentals are the closest thing to relaxing at home – only with a much better view, considering we’re right on the Ka’anapali Beach! Our well appointed, spacious condos give you room for privacy, comfortable surroundings and even kitchenettes for those times you’d rather prepare a meal and enjoy the breathtaking views from your lanai. Aloha, and have a wonderful time in Maui!

Vacationing is all about having fun and relaxing, putting the stress of day-to-day life – and the diet – behind you for a while. While you’re probably excited about hitting the beach, kayaking, surfing, browsing the shops and all of the other fun activities, no doubt you’re nearly as excited about experiencing new foods. Our Maui condo rentals provide well-equipped kitchenettes so you can prepare meals at your home away from home when you like, but you’ll want to check out the local cuisine at least a few times! What can you expect?

Home to charming gourmet establishments and traditional open-sea restaurants, Maui is where you’ll find a blend of Chinese, Japanese, French, Korean and other cuisines. In Lahaina and all around the island you’ll find beachfront restaurants and chic bistros serving up Mexican, Thai, Italian and more. If grilled lomi salmon or pork sounds delicious, or you’re in the mood for tequila shrimp or freshly grilled sea food, you’ll find your little piece of Heaven.

Chances are you’ll enjoy a luau or traditional Hawaiian dance at some point during your vacation. It’s likely you’ll enjoy a Hawaiian staple, poi, along with Kalua roast pork, ahi poke and mahi-mahi. These may sound foreign to you at this point, but you’ll come to learn why these traditional favorites are so popular among locals and visitors to the island!

Traditional Hawaiian food includes dishes such as chicken long rice, laulau, squid luau and kalua pork. Loco moco is another dish you may want to try if you love fried eggs and a beef patty, with rice and gravy thrown in. If raw seafood is your thing, you won’t want to miss out on the poke.

The menu is as diverse as the people; even the pickiest eaters will experience fresh, local foods and ingredients that tickle the tongue and delight the taste buds.
