Maui County Documentation for Deluxe Rental Property as a legal Vacation Rental
This vacation rental is located on property zoned A-1 Apartment District. Because the property received building permits and was built prior to 1989, there is no restriction on the length of occupancies that can be accepted. Therefore, vacation and short-term transient rentals are entirely legal.
The Maui County Corporation Counsel interpretation dated July 30, 2001, allows apartment properties, that had a lawfully issued and valid building permit on April 20, 1989, to be exempt from the short-term vacation rental prohibition. Since the subject property at 2141 Iliili Road in Kihei, Maui, Hawaii, received its building permits in 1986, it is exempt from the transient vacation rental prohibition. This is therefore a legal vacation rental according to the attorneys for the Maui County government.
