Primary Uses

Short-Term Vacation Rental

Maui vacation rental demand has consistently performed well throughout the years due to the desirability of being in a tropical setting yet still within the United States. During the peak winter season, Maui’s population can shift from the baseline resident population of 165K or so to over 300K people.

Historically, the typical vacation rental condo averages 75-80% occupancy; we have some clients and property managers that consistently keep their units 90%+ booked. High-end units may see lower occupancy than mid to low-end vacation rental units.

As a guide for our clients, we apply the 10% rule to help them identify properties with a gross annual income of 10%+ than their acquisition cost. An example would be a $1M property grossing $100k or more yearly. The net income to the seller would be based on how they operate the unit and the work they’re willing to do. Self-managed units net the highest income but also require the most work. Front desk management usually has the lowest income but less involvement and flexibility. Independent property managers are often the happy medium between excellent service and solid revenue. Please reach out if you’d like a proforma or rental projection for a particular unit. We’d love to help.

Long-Term Rental

Long-term rentals are considered six months or longer here in Maui. You avoid some operations costs such as cleaning, higher management fees, and higher tax rates; however, you are likely to get more income running your unit as a short-term vacation rental. Long-term rentals also offer you less flexibility for owner stays.

Second Home

If your goal is not to maximize your ROI and simply use the unit as you please, you can do so. You would pay the highest and best use for real property tax, but you would not be subject to the TAT and GET taxes (see below) associated with income-producing short-term units.

Owner Occupant

If Maui is where you want to call home, the owner-occupant is the one for you. If you spend 270 days out of the year on Maui and your unit is your primary residence, then you can apply for the Owner Occupant exemption (frequently asked questions)


The zoning for Hale Kai O Kihei is Apartment. As per Maui County Rules, long-term and vacation rentals are allowed. This property is listed on the Minatoya List.
