We know searching for accommodations when you’re planning a vacation on Maui can be overwhelming, given all of the resorts, condos, hotels, private houses, and other options. By the time you’ve finally chosen a place to stay, you actually NEED a vacation to get rid of the stress. Our Maui condo rentals make the choice easy, but we do have a few tips to help make your search easier and more fun.
First, location, location, location. Yes, you’ve heard it before but it’s so important to choose a location you’ll love. Do you prefer to be in the mix of things, or be a bit more secluded? What about easy access to dining, shopping, golfing, or other activities? How far will you have to drive to get to the beach, if at all? Do you want quiet surroundings but at the same time close proximity to the main attractions? No one wants to spend their vacation in a room without a view, or in a location where everything they want to see and do is miles away.
Room accommodations. While you certainly won’t be spending all of your time inside your vacation rental, you do want accommodations that make you comfortable and provide everything you need. Two bedrooms, or three? Do you prefer a fully equipped kitchen so you can cook a few meals instead of eating out constantly? What about a separate living room where you can enjoy the late evening after the kids are in bed? Would you love to be near the pool, or have a fantastic oceanfront view? You won’t find many of these luxuries in a hotel, so consider all the factors that will make your vacation most enjoyable.
Amenities and cost. Need a high chair for your toddler so dinnertime is easier? What about a gym or spa located on the premises, or a restaurant nearby where you can enjoy a drink or fine meal in the evening? Cost is another factor that often comes into play, as many people mistakenly assume a Maui condo rental will cost an arm and a leg when compared to a hotel. Considering all of the amenities, the fact that you have a kitchen that makes it possible to cook when you want to, and not having to rent a car, buy gas, and all of the other costs associated with staying in a location that’s not really where you want to be because it’s cheaper, can end up making it more expensive in the long run – not only in terms of money, but also your enjoyment.
