What We Love

Wailea Palms is a great spot for part-time residents and full-time residents alike. The size of the project and the configuration of the buildings make these condos feel more like townhomes than high-density condominiums.

What We Could Do Without

Wailea Palms has a Mediterranean feel to it that feels a little out of place for Maui. Some people love the aesthetic and some people look elsewhere for their needs. Either way, it’s a consideration for resale.

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 you 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)
