Buying a vacation rental condo in Kihei makes total sense – you can come to Maui and enjoy your unit when you visit and then rent it out to other tourists the rest of the time to help defray your ownership costs. Many condo investors start with an affordable unit and then upgrade when the time is right.

How large are these units?
As I mentioned at the beginning of this article, Kihei condos under $300k are considered respectable starter investments, as such these are mainly 1 bedroom (some studio) smaller sized units with living area ranging from 424 sqft up to 750 sqft.
Are the maintenance fees affordable?
Just because the unit is affordable, don’t assume that your Kihei condo will have a low maintenance fee. Remember that vacation condo communities are designed to offer on-site amenities that appeal to visitors such as a pool, tennis court, BBQ area etc. Those features translate to higher costs for common area upkeep which means that owning a vacation condo will usually cost you a higher monthly maintenance fee. The average maintenance fee for Kihei condos in this bracket is about $545 per month but the fees vary widely from one complex to another. On the low end, you might be paying $399/month but some complexes go as high as $828/month.
