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 the least 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 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.
If your goal is not to maximize your ROI but to 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.
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 Maui Banyan is H-1, H-2, and H-M. As per Maui County Rules, both long-term and vacation rentals are allowed.
Taxes to consider when owning at Maui Banyan:
- Transient Accommodations Tax
- General Excise Tax
- Real Property Tax (This rate will change depending on your use. You may fall under short-term vacation rental, long-term rental, or the base zoning if your unit is an empty second home or owner-occupied.)
