Paradise Awaits You with Vacation Rentals in Maui

Island Dreams Do Come True

Visitors of “The Valley Isle” will be the first to tell you there’s an extraordinary list of things to do in Maui. The second largest Hawaiian Island is beyond beautiful and rarely disappoints even the most seasoned of travelers. Picture-perfect beaches, rushing waterfalls, and tropical gardens can be found along every bend and curve, while Haleakala National Park gives you the perfect place to behold one of the most memorable sunsets (or sunrises) you’ll ever see.

Everything You Could Want From a Vacation

Whether you’re traveling solo or planning a group vacation, our vacation rentals offer an option that’s just right for you. Choose from an expansive selection of serene beachfront homes, cozy condos, and private villas that become the ideal starting point for any number of memorable Maui activities. Now you and your family can enjoy a picnic on Polo Beach, snorkel Molokini Crater, or go horseback riding on Piiholo Ranch. With all the comforts of home at your fingertips, you’re all set to experience the very best of Maui’s paradise playground.

Top Sights in Maui

The Historic Road to Hana

Driving the Hana Highway is truly one of the most exciting experiences you can have on Maui. Famous for its hairpin turns and single-lane bridges, this adventure ride is lined with refreshing waterfalls, regal state parks and splendid coastal views that can’t be beat. The rainbow at the end of the road is the peaceful beach town of Hana where the island’s rich history and culture can be witnessed firsthand.

Kaanapali Beach

On the northwestern shore of Maui are the sparkling sands and clear waters of Kaanapali Beach. Formerly the royal retreat for the Hawaiian king’s family, this popular destination is now home to top-rated shops, fine dining and pro golf courses. What’s most remarkable about this beach is the daily cliff diving ceremony that takes place on Puu Kekaa (Black Rock) in honor of King Kahekili, who once took a dive from the very same spot.

The Iao Valley

Rich with culture and lush with tropical vegetation, Iao Valley is the site of one of Hawaii’s greatest historic moments—the battle of Kepaniwai. To unite the islands, King Kamehameha I defeated the Maui army in this spot and brought the Hawaiian people together. You’ll also find an easy half-mile hike around Kuka’emoku (Iao Needle), a 1,200-foot rock outcropping that is iconic as one of the island’s most recognizable landmarks.

Top Experiences in Maui

Get a Bird’s Eye View of Maui by Helicopter

If you thought visiting Maui was special, try seeing it from above. Professional helicopter companies are available to show you a different view of all the best sights of Maui and beyond, including the Hana Rainforest, Haleakala Crater and neighboring Lana’I Island. You could make your flight even more spectacular by taking a sunset tour, where you’ll get to see the island radiate in the most vibrant shades of orange, pink and bright red.

Watch the Whales Play

Whale watching is nothing short of spectacular if you visit Maui anytime from December through May. During the winter months, thousands of whales leave the colder waters for Hawaii’s warm ocean to breed. While joining a tour is the easiest way to experience these majestic creatures of the sea, guests of Maui vacation rentals along the beaches of Kihei, Wailea, and Kaanapali have also reported catching a glimpse of these silent giants from the comfort of their own doorsteps.

Walk Back in Time Through Lahaina

One of the greatest things to do in Maui is spend a day walking through the historic seaport town of Lahaina. As the former capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, Lahaina today is vibrant with art galleries, boutique shops, and local restaurants. Hawaiian history lives on in this former whaling village with the Lahaina Historic Trail and the crown jewel—the oldest living banyan tree in Maui.
