Considering listing your Kihei vacation home as a short-term rental? With close proximity to the Maui Ocean Center Aquarium and extensive beaches, Kihei has grown in popularity as a tourist destination. When travelers come to visit, often their first choice for accommodations are vacation rentals.
Capitalizing on Kihei's expanding vacation rental market could bring you excellent returns, but there are some things to consider before you open your home to guests.
Acquiring a vacation rental permit is essential to renting your Kihei home. The process could take several months, and entails detailed floor and parking plans, photographs of the property, a location map, and more. Zoning restrictions and permit limits may affect your ability to get a permit. Additionally, a 13.42 percent General Excise and Transient Accommodations Tax will apply to your short term rental. Some areas may even have a per-night booking fee. If you rent without a permit and are found out by the state, you'll incur a $1,000 fine and a five-year rental ban.
It helps to have a local team who know what it takes to operate a Kihei vacation rental. For instance, noise violations are common in the Kihei vacation rental market and could be a headache if you don't live close by. Work with us, and know that you've got 24/7 support when problems arise or when guests need help.
Our dynamic rate-setting technology empowers you to increase your income and get more bookings. When you list with us, your nightly price automatically adjusts for local events and seasonal demand on major platforms like Airbnb, Expedia, and TripAdvisor. Your guests get the optimal rate, and you get improved returns all year long.
