Haven’t booked your winter holiday travel plans yet? If you are thinking about coming to Maui over the holidays, condo and hotel occupancy are very high already. But don’t despair, you might still be lounging on a Maui beach sooner than you think. We’ve got some tips for last minute vacation shoppers, for beautiful Maui beachfront vacation condos.
Change how you are searching
You can try a traditional search on destinationmauivacations.com, putting in the dates you will be on Maui. However, if you would like to book the week between Christmas and New Year’s, or anywhere around it, you may be out of luck. A better strategy is to find units you are interested in without putting in dates and then look at their calendars. Each unit shows occupied and available days without having to put in a credit card or email address. There may be openings that closely match your dates. For example, as of this writing, this unit at Hono Kai Resort is open December 27 – Jan 2.
Stay in more than one location
If you are flexible to move from one unit to another during your stay, filling in these gaps in occupancy becomes a lot more reasonable. That could mean moving to a different unit within the same complex, or a different property entirely. Since Destination Maui Vacations has 13 properties, there are a lot to choose from. Also, trying out a different location can be fun.
Bypass the minimum stay requirement
As much as you would like to find last minute holiday accommodations, we would like to fill in occupancy gaps for our owners! Some units have a 10 day minimum during high season, but may have as much as a week or more available in between bookings. If you have found a unit in our system with some gap dates you would like to fill, please contact us with your request (and include your phone number) at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can also try and help you piece together a longer stay by looking at all availability within your date range and booking you into one unit for part and another for another part.
Book earlier in December
Occupancy is not as tight earlier in December, up until about a week before Christmas. Celebrate the holidays early and get all the benefits- the island is all decorated, there is extra aloha in the air and you return home for your own gathering with a great tan. Our pricing system automatically discounts last minute bookings less than three weeks out, so you could save some green too!
Give the gift of Maui
Instead of coming to the island for Hanukah or Christmas, surprise your family by booking one of our beachfront condos after the holiday rush. What an unforgettable gift!
Whenever you end up visiting, Maui (and our staff) will welcome you with warm aloha and sunny beaches.
