Maui Travel Tips: Astute Renting
With so many beautiful rental options, many properties often seem too good to be true. And in some cases, they are. Maui resident Malika Dudley has a few tips to help you avoid potential scams and the headaches they can cause, so that you can focus on maximizing your leisure when you arrive.
Driving through gorgeous scenery is one of the great pleasures on Maui. But please use common sense to avoid causing unnecessary traffic issues - look carefully before making U-turns, avoid sudden stops and be cautious and courteous when pulling over to sight see, and do not try to drive on unimproved or unsafe roads. It's always a good idea to check your planned route to make sure the roads are open before heading out.
Road to Hāna Code of Conduct
Road to Hāna Code of Conduct Because the lovely road to Hāna is one of the most popular attractions on Maui, it's important to help the local community and fellow travelers minimize impacts by following this simple code:
- 1. Visit state parks and county rest facilities.
- 2. Enjoy the various farms, botanical gardens and fruit stands along the way.
- 3. Please avoid sites located on or beyond private properties, and areas without signs that clearly welcome visitors.
- 4. Park only in designated parking stalls, because vehicles protruding onto the highway create traffic hazards and are subject to being towed.
- 5. Please do not enter streams during heavy rain, as flash flood conditions become dangerous very quickly.
- 6. Please protect the ʻāina (land) and place trash in a proper receptacle, stay on marked paths, respect the wildlife and plants,and use common sense to stay safe.
