Most owners of resort condos in Maui use the services of a vacation rental management company.  Services offered by such companies may include, but are not limited to:

  • Advertising and marketing the property to potential guests and/or travel agents;
  • Make bookings and keep calendars of existing bookings;
  • Check in and check out guests;
  • Cleaning the unit, changing and replacing bed linens, covers, etc;
  • Light maintenance;
  • Filing General Excise Tax and Transient Accomodation Tax. Please refer to my other blogs on taxation issues;
  • Sending a check monthly, quarterly or annually with the proceeds from the rentals, less their management fees.

Some management companies may run a front desk on the property in case; others have an off site office and arrange access through electronic codes or lockboxes. In some cases, it may make more sense to hire a manager that also runs the front desk, for extra perks (daily cleaning, pool towels, daily paper, etc).

Depending on the services offered, current management fees run between 30% and 50% of the total income from rentals. Companies like Aston, Outrigger or Classic Resorts, that run on site front desks charge approximately 50% of the income from rentals.
