Welcome to Maui Vacation Rental Association

Supporting the vacation rentals in Maui County with advocacy and information in the State of Hawaii. The Maui Vacation Rental Association provides news and information about current issues regarding single family Short Term Rental homes (STRH) and Bed & Breakfast homes (B&B), and Transient Vacation Rental Condos (TVR) on the island of Maui, including details of the benefits they bring to Maui. MVRA is a non-profit trade association made up of property owners, management companies, rental booking agencies and members of the business community. Our members are condo owners, bed and breakfast operators, short term rental owners, realtors, brokers, managers and affiliated businesses. Since 2001, MVRA has been working diligently with the County government, the local community, permit holders and property owners to establish fair and effective regulations and licensing for vacation rentals. Grassroots efforts are the heart of this with all stakeholders working together on our common cause. COVID19 has shown us how much we need each other to make sure restrictive regulations do not further affect our industry. We are stronger together. Your Membership counts! https://mvra.net/join


We are Maui's strong community voice supporting the Vacation Rental Industry. We can only create this by working together to grow and affect regulation and enforcement actions.  Maui currently has approximately 223 legal short term rental homes and 150 bed and breakfast operations. Maui has 6700 short term rental condos on our legal short term occupancy list. There are more condos that are in Hotel zoned areas that can also rent short term. There are more than 11000 units getting taxed at the Short term rate on Maui. Each of these supports several other professional local small businesses like maintenance, interior design, housekeeping, management, architecture, and landscaping. Maui Vacation Rental Association believes in a vibrant and diverse Vacation Rental Industry in Maui. Our vision is not complete without your support.  Read more
