The TOP 14 Bungalows, Condos and Unique Airbnbs You Can Rent in Maui, Hawaii

0 Best places to stay in Maui

Maui is the second-largest island of the Hawaiian archipelago. The Valley Isle formed from thousands of years of lava overflowing from the island’s two volcanoes, Pu’u Kukui and Haleakala. However, according to Hawaiian legend, it was created by the demigod, Maui. 

Maui is a place of natural splendor. The western side is covered in lush, green forests, while the east is drier but features some of the world’s best beaches. And no matter where you are on this Hawaiian island, you’re almost always guaranteed to have a view of the sunrise or sunset. 

While Maui may not be big, there’s so much to do and see. Saltwater lovers can snorkel with turtles, learn how to surf, or discover the many blowholes and volcanic rock pools along the coastline. Adventure-seekers can hike along the endless trails of sacred forests to beautiful, natural waterfalls or head out to watch the Humpback whale’s migration.

To experience all this, you’ll need a top Airbnb Maui from which to base your travels. There are many great Airbnbs I’ve sourced for your adventure to this tropical island; all of which suit a number of travelers’ interests.
