Blog: A taste of what you may find on Maui

What are your Christmas 2014 plans?

Is that a typo? Nope! I have just booked two of our condos for Christmas 2014 – both our Maui Kamaole and Palms at Wailea condos are already snapped up. Talk about planning in advance!

So do you need to book your condo a year in advance? It really depends on when you are traveling. Christmas often books a year in advance. Some of you planners out there book your high-season (winter) trip a year a year out, too. Especially if you have your heart set on a certain condo and you know your dates, it’s best to get the condo booked as soon as possible (I accept bookings up to one year in advance). Having said that, I still have some dates in March and April available at a few of our condos. I am sure they will fill.

For low season (mid-April to mid-December) most people book two or three months in advance. However, the early bird does get the worm. The earlier you book, the better your selection of condos will be.

A friend asked me the other day – there are so many condos on Maui, for people who are coming to Maui the first time, how do they choose? I honestly don’t know. For us, ten years ago a friend had a friend with a condo to rent. That was how we determined where on Maui to stay. Nowadays there is so much more information readily available on the internet. But it can still be overwhelming.

How do you choose where to stay?
