Maui Gardens: Information and Real Estate Insights

The complex has been well-maintained and offers spacious one- or two-bedroom units with one or one-and-a-half bathrooms. Amenities include a pool, a spa, and a barbecue area.

What We Love About Maui Gardens

Maui Gardens is quiet and well-maintained. The community here is tight-knit, and the pride of ownership definitely shows compared to other long-term condo complexes.

What We Could Do Without

Its location right off South Kihei Road does lead to noise from passing vehicles, but many condos in Kiehi have the same challenge.

Primary Uses

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 less flexibility for owner stays.

Second Home

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.

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 Maui Gardens is A-1. As per Maui County Rules, vacation rentals are not allowed.


Taxes to consider when owning at Maui Gardens:

  • 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, the base zoning if your unit is an empty second home or owner occupied.)
