You'd be hard-pressed to find a traveler to Maui who wouldn't consider renting a Lahaina vacation home. With its white-sand beaches, outstanding sportfishing, and rich Hawaiian cultural history, Lahaina draws visitors from around the islands and the world. If you own a Lahaina vacation home, renting to visitors could be a lucrative revenue stream and a clever way to keep your home vacation-ready.
Regulations on Lahaina vacation rentals depend on the type of home you own and where it’s located. While some condos are easier to use as short-term rentals, newly purchased homes must undergo a five year waiting period before they are eligible for a rental permit. There is a limited amount of single-family permits, and they cannot transfer during the sale of a home. It's important to check with your HOA and the city to determine your short term rental possibilities, especially if you own a single-family home in Lahaina. Once you begin renting, you'll also have to collect a 4.25 percent general excise tax and a 10.25 percent travel and tourism tax.
With all the barriers to renting in Lahaina, it's important that setting up your vacation rental is worth it. We're here to make profiting from your home simple. Our management fee covers the tools that empower your rental to stand out online, like professional photography, 3D tours, and dynamic rates that automatically adjust to demand. We'll list your home on major booking sites like Airbnb, Google, Booking.com and more, getting your home exposure.
Our highly trained local teams are here to help guests during their stay in your home. Work with us, and trust that a knowledgeable member of our team can respond to guest-related emergencies 24/7. Anytime you have a question or want to arrange maintenance, call your local point of contact for support. We also respect that your home is your escape, so we'll never limit the number of days you can visit (and we'll make sure it's sparkling clean when you get there).
