Stop paying so much for your Maui vacation! That’s right, I said it. Stop paying these outrageous rates at Maui resorts and make your money work for you! Did you know that 62% of visitors to Maui have been here before?
Maui’s tourism industry benefits greatly from repeat business and it’s no surprise, as Maui has been named a top island destination by Conde Naste the last 20 years. To learn more about what makes Maui such a great destination, read my recent blog. But how does this benefit you?

Having a solid base of demand (tourists) is the foundation for any successful hotel or resort, right? But there’s plenty of demand for condominium properties as well. In the October 2013 monthly visitor statistics report published by the Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism, over 103,000 visitors to Hawaii in October planned to stay in a condo while visiting Hawaii. That’s 1 out of every 6 visitors to Hawaii in October!
How Does This Save You Money?
So, let’s get back to how this saves you money. Instead of paying $400+ a night for a hotel (with tax, that’s over $3,100 just for a room!), you could purchase a Maui vacation condo and make a profit on your vacation dollar. Many visitors to Maui choose to purchase a Maui vacation condo, and rent out their home while they are not on Maui.
This is a smart way to save on your vacation expense, take advantage of potential tax savings, and earn a little extra cash throughout the year. Remember, there were over 103,000 people in the month of October looking for a Maui vacation condo to rent! They could rent yours.
