When the topic of a family vacation comes up or when friends want to celebrate with an excursion, many places come to mind. Should they go rent out bungalows in the jungle of Costa Rica? Maybe booking a private villa and ski trip to Colorado comes to mind or even visiting a few national parks on a road trip. Another great idea is renting a luxury Maui vacation rental with friends. This is exactly what my group of friends decided to do when my best friend had his wedding and decided to go to Maui. It was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had and I would recommend anyone contemplating a trip to Hawaii to take into consideration.
Where exactly is Maui? Maui is one of the islands that make up the state of Hawaii. It is just a short plane ride of less than an hour from Honolulu. What exactly does Maui have to offer? This wonderful island has it all. Relaxing on a white-sand beach with a cool cocktail in hand, exploring the dense and lush, pristine jungles and swimming with sea life are all fantastic experiences that can be had on this island.
After deciding that Maui is the best island to visit, the first thing that usually comes up is where to stay. While there, many tourists decide to stay in hotels. While this is a good idea if traveling with only one other person, if you want to go with friends, more than likely the only option with a hotel is to book multiple rooms, which can become expensive and impersonal. One option besides a lonely hotel room that is becoming popular is the option of renting out an entire villa.
Renting out an entire house or villa instead of multiple hotel rooms at a hotel is a fantastic idea because everybody can use the whole house at their convenience instead of staying in cramped hotel rooms. Feel like swimming in your own private pool without the annoying strangers you’ve never seen? Go for it. Want to make plans to visit the beach with your friends? No need to go door to door to get together, just meet up in the living room and make them there!
The joy of having your own personal villa in Maui is an experience that will never be forgotten. When my best friend decided that he wanted to rent out a villa instead of multiple hotel rooms, I thought he was crazy. After returning from our trip, I could not have asked for a better vacation. I would highly recommend anyone planning a trip to Maui to take into consideration before booking anywhere else.
