If you own a vacation home in Maui, you’ve probably had more than a few people ask to spend a week at your place. And, who could blame them? Our island has the most swimmable beaches in Hawaii, miles of stunning hikes on Haleakala, and awe-inspiring views practically anywhere you look.
As a perpetually popular market, renting your Maui vacation home can generate extra income for you and help visitors get a local feel for our beautiful island. Maui vacation rental taxes comprise a 4.25 percent General Excise Tax and a 10.25 percent Travel and Tourism tax. If your condo is a part of a resort, you may have to pay a per-night booking fee, as well. While condominiums usually can get short-term rental permits, local zoning prohibits short-term rental usage of most single-family homes.
Short-term rental real estate in Maui is similarly complex. Short-term rental permits of single-family homes do not transfer ownership, and new homeowners must wait five years before applying for a new permit. The kind of property you buy can also affect your short-term rental permit eligibility. Homes in Maui are either fee simple (land and unit ownership) or leasehold (unit ownership, but not land ownership). Where you live matters, too: if you are not a resident of Hawaii, you're required to pay a 7.25 percent Hawaii Real Property Tax, while foreign investors must pay a 15 percent Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax. If you neither live in Hawaii nor are an American citizen, you’ll have to pay both taxes on the purchase price of your home.
Work with us, and get your Maui vacation rental great exposure and your guests the best service. Travelers from around the world can tour your home on major platforms like Airbnb, VRBO, and Booking.com.
