The ultimate beach fantasy usually includes sunsets, crashing waves, and a handsome or beautiful date sitting opposite you on a balcony over the sea as you sip on a delicious tropical cocktail, and while we can’t provide the date, we at Quam Properties can offer everything else to make this fantasy come true! Our beach escapes are perfect for fulfilling all fantasies, but when you want that cocktail you are sipping to be extra special, a visit to any of the spots listed in this guide will ensure you get the best handcrafted cocktails in Hawaii that we have to offer. You can always steal their recipes and try to replicate them in one of our fully equipped kitchens later in your stay!
When you find a spot in which the Cocktail Menu is longer than most restaurants’ food menus, you have to know you’re onto something good! With handcrafted cocktails falling under categories such as Something Old, Something New, Something Blue, Something Muddled, and Something Bubbly, you might also suspect that Aloha Bars Maui might be in the wedding business—and you would be right! Aloha Bars brings the cocktails to your special day, so while it’s not a bar you can visit, it helps make your destination wedding absolutely perfect!
A funny name, farm to table meals, and delicious handcrafted cocktails are all you need to make an ordinary Tuesday on Maui an extraordinary experience you’ll never forget. Stay traditional and sip on their Monkeypod Mai Tai or tiptoe through the wild side with a Dirty Mind, created with cimarron reposado tequila, Pierre Ferrand dry curacao, cinnamon, and salt. Designating someone else to be the driver may be your smartest decision in either circumstance!
World famous for being the top party place on Maui, Fleetwood’s is also known for their signature cocktails! Enjoy Hi Tea, a unique concoction of Sazerac rye whiskey, walnut liqueur, honey, lemon juice, Earl Grey, rose water, cardamom bitters, dried tea roses, and honeycomb. Or go for the Heart of the Jungle, made with Cynar Ricetta Originale, Velvet Falernum, coconut rum, lemon juice, and served in a Tiki artichoke with falernum-pressed starfruit. Their award-winning cocktails are innovative, delicious, and go down smooth! When you stay in Hololani B301, you can have this great spot only down the road from you.
Reserve your beach escape today and discover if you have what it takes to replicate the drinks you’ve tried at these hot spots!
Because not all vacations have to take place in the summer, your winter getaway to Maui promises to be the one that changes the way you look at vacations forever. Offering sunshine and palm trees and more than a few magical events that will ensure your January or February escape to the tropics is filled with fun and excitement, it only gets better when you choose Quam properties for your accommodations! We’ve compiled this guide to some of our favorite events to make sure you don’t miss out on a single second of fun during your magical Maui vacation rental escape.
Ready, set, RUN! The 12th Maui Oceanfront Marathon is the perfect way to get a little sun, work off some extra holiday pounds, and possibly catch sight of a pod of whales if you’re looking in the right direction! Also offering a 15K and a 5K for less ambitious runners, the views of the ocean, mountains, and of course, those whales may just take away a little of the pain caused by running!
The best way to experience the magic of the Islands is by attending a luau, and the Legends of Kāʻanapali Lūʻau is guaranteed to not just be fun and exciting; it’s also the most authentic one available! Offering hula dancing, delicious Hawaiian foods, and the stories that have made our piece of paradise the place it is today, you don’t have to choose this luau, but you may be a little disappointed if you don’t!
Music is the international language of love and happiness, and Kevin Brown Ohana, our hometown hero, speaks the language fluently! You have the choice of dinner and a show for $95 per ticket or show only for $38 when purchased ahead of time online or $45 at the door. Learn the story of Kevin’s life and the stories of the islands as you take in this authentic show on a warm winter’s night in Maui.
Although island life is primarily a casual and laidback experience, we can still dress up and throw a great party with the best of them, and the Art Affair 2020 is the perfect example. Offering silent auctions, gourmet food, and breathtaking art, this event is Maui’s largest fundraiser, with proceeds going towards helping aspiring artists make their creative dreams come true.
Our winter wonderland may look a little different than yours thanks to our sandy beaches, blue waters, and palm trees swaying in the ocean breezes. Come discover the difference and reserve your Quam Properties winter escape today!
As another year draws to a close, the gray days and slush, sleet, and ice may be making you more than a little depressed. We all dream about a white Christmas, but no one talks about the cold and dreariness that often accompanies the delicate snowflakes! That white Christmas is a magical sight to behold, but do you really want to try and navigate the icy sidewalks on the last night of the year? We know of a place where the breezes are tropical, the temperatures are warm, and the only ice to be found are the cubes keeping your cocktail chilled. It’s time to head to Maui for New Year’s!
Not everyone enjoys a night out on the town on the most celebrated night of the year, and if you and your family fall into that category, there’s no worries! Our Quam Properties holiday homes are designed to make an ordinary Tuesday night feel important and special, so you can imagine how your New Year’s Eve will feel when you choose to stay in! Toss together some appetizers to enjoy throughout the evening in our fully equipped kitchen and pop open a bottle or two of your favorite bubbly to sip while lounging in your comfiest pajamas! Watching Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve is always our favorite part of the holiday, and the state of the art televisions found in all our units offer clear pictures and incredible bass; you can stay in the living room, or if you’re an early bird, you can watch from the comfort of one of our soft beds! After the ball drops in Time Square, however, you might want to move the party out onto the balcony for the traditional kiss at midnight and the opportunity to see some fireworks that are bound to be exploding in the area!
If the thought of staying in makes you cringe in horror, there’s no reason for you to worry either! From New Year’s luaus to cocktail cruises, there’s always something fun to do on the last night of the year. Bar hopping in West Maui is a time-honored tradition in this area, and on New Year’s Eve, the crowds are feeling even more festive and joyful. 2020 promises to be the year we never forget and starting it out in paradise is the only way to go!
Knowing you only have a few weeks to wait for the warm weather will make Maui for New Year’s even more magical! Contact us today to book your fantastic vacation to Maui. We offer a wide selection of rental properties, including Honua Kai Hokulani 710, a two-bedroom condo.
Many of our staff didn’t originally start out living in paradise. Like millions of people before them, they spent one too many winters shoveling snow and scraping ice off their windshields. They’ve learned that once you experience one Maui Christmas in 2019, you’ll want to spend EVERY Christmas on Maui, avoiding the harsh realities of winter and welcoming palm trees, sunny days, and the soothing rhythm of the seas that surround the island. And because Christmas is a feeling everyone holds in their hearts, your holiday getaway to Maui during this festive season promises to be the most special one yet!
Although the properties we offer may not feature any outwardly festive décor, the feeling of Christmas shines bright throughout. Red wood cabinets in many and the green of the palm trees peeking in from the outside is just the start. The big screen television in the living areas offer the perfect spots to watch holiday movies as you munch on freshly baked Christmas cookies you whipped together in our fully equipped kitchens. Fill the soaking tubs to the brim, turn on some holiday tunes, and spend a good hour relaxing in a fragrant bubble bath; Christmas aromas can be purchased pretty much anywhere this time of year! And when the moon rises high on Christmas Eve, it’s not just your children who will be dreaming about Santa Claus.
Christmas activities on Maui are similar to those at home but with a few minor differences. Although we do have Christmas trees decorated in colorful twinkle lights, the lighting of the Banyan Tree in Lahaina is a much-loved tradition that will soon become your favorite as well. Holiday shopping at the Whaler’s Village offers gifts and surprises you just won’t find anywhere else in the world: Hawaiian shirts and dresses from Cariloha Bamboo, exotic pearls from Maui Diver’s Jewelry, or for someone who has been extra good, a little something from Louis Vuitton! Christmas luaus and whale watching expeditions are other options that prove your Maui Christmas is guaranteed to be one you never forget!
Winter in Maui is probably a little different than winter in your area! We still experience balmy days with highs in the 70s, palm trees swaying in the ocean breezes, and the sounds of waves crashing against the beach—it’s pretty much the same here in winter as it is in summer, spring, and fall! If your winter days are dreary, icy, and cold, this is the time that you can change it all with a visit to paradise. This guide to a winter Maui vacation getaways will ensure your winter season will soon be bright and cheery.
You won’t need to wear your footie pajamas or huddle under a blanket on the sofas in our Quam Properties winter escapes. What you will need is a few extra minutes of sleep in soft beds, some quiet time on the balconies that overlook the sea, and a tropical drink you’ve blended together in our cheerful and fully equipped kitchens! Comfortable, stylish, and designed for the needs of today’s travelers, our properties are the home away from home you never dreamed could exist! Spa-like bathrooms, indoor/outdoor living spaces, and killer views make it difficult to remember that in some parts of the world, winter is an icky and dreary season. And that’s ok! We all need to forget some things sometimes!
Popular winter activities in Maui will also vary from ones in the colder states. We don’t ski, snowshoe, or sled, but we do go whale watching from the middle of December all the way through the month of May. The humpback whale is more commonly sighted in December, January, and February, and there are whale watching cruises you can take or simply find a spot on land near the water and keep your eyes peeled! At Christmas, we light the banyan tree instead of your typical Douglas fir, and this annual event takes place on December 7 at Banyan Tree Park in West Maui. The PGA tour comes to paradise January 1st through 5th with PGA TOUR Sentry Tournament of Champions at the Plantation Golf Course in Kapalua, but you don’t have to wait till next year to play a round; golf is the perfect winter activity on Maui!
If visions of sandy beaches are running through your head, now’s the time to start planning your winter getaway to Maui. Reserve your stay in one of our Quam Properties luxury properties today! We have a vast selection of vacation rentals, including Kaanapali Royal P 301, a two-bedroom condo.
As the days grow shorter and the nights grow cooler, it’s not just the pretty pictures on your calendar that tells you it’s time to start planning your holiday vacation; it’s the way you dread the thought of cooking and cleaning for days, only to have the Thanksgiving feast demolished in a matter of minutes; it’s how you feel about doing your Christmas shopping in the same old stores you’ve shopped in for the last 10 years of your life; and finally, it’s the reluctance you feel when you imagine spending New Year’s Eve wearing a parka over your evening gown and suffering the after effects of yet another winter cold. If this year you’re thinking you should be doing it all different, this guide to what makes Maui one of the most warm winter vacations will be a nudge in the right direction—especially when you choose Quam Properties for your holiday escape!
No matter which holiday you choose to visit paradise, our properties offer a warmth and cheer that signifies that the holidays have arrived! Fully equipped kitchens that make guests happy to create a Thanksgiving feast, comfortable furnishings that invite you to sink in and enjoy your favorite Christmas movie playing on the state of the art televisions, and balconies overlooking the beauty of the ocean surrounding our island properties for your New Year’s Eve pleasure. And although the balconies don’t really have anything to do with the holidays, they do add wonder to a vacation shines brighter with each second that passes!
There’s more to Maui than breathtaking sunsets and gorgeous beaches, so why not take a holiday break to discover all the reasons you will never want to go anywhere else? Enjoy a Thanksgiving meal at Fleetwood’s on Front Street, found at 744 Front Street in Lahaina. And yes, it’s owned by THAT Fleetwood, so you know the live entertainment will be extraordinary! Do your Christmas shopping at Ali’i Kula Lavender or watch Santa arrive by outrigger canoe instead of a sleigh drawn by reindeer at Wailea Beach. Finally, attend the Drums of the Pacific Luau held on New Year’s Eve at the Hyatt Regency in Lahaina. Every holiday offers something new and different to experience during your unforgettable Maui getaway!

We understand that not everyone gets to live in paradise. Your hometown is a place you love, but you don’t wake up to sunshine and ocean breezes every morning of your life, and that’s ok; It just makes you appreciate the beauty of our island even more, especially when you choose to spend your 2019 Thanksgiving here in Maui sipping Mai Tais and avoiding cranky relatives who just add to the tension and stress of a holiday that is supposed to be dedicated to thankfulness. So what are you waiting for? It’s time to start planning your 2019 getaway for a Maui Thanksgiving, and this guide will help!
The sound of silence, punctuated by the splash of ocean waves against the beach, is all the noise you will hear on your first Maui Thanksgiving. Unlike at home, you won’t need to wake up early and rush to start the first of millions of chores. In Maui you can pull the pillow over your head and get in a few more minutes of sleep or fix a cup of coffee to enjoy on the patio. As the sounds of the ocean grows louder, your children and your spouse may just find their way out to visit you in your favorite spot. Quiet conversations, happy chatter, and more moments of silence are definitely something you will be thankful for.
Choices are something to be thankful for as well, and when you stay with us, your meal choices are plentiful! Our fully equipped kitchens allow you to create a feast that compares to the one you might have made at home. Purchase all the ingredients you need at the local Safeway, or, if cooking is not your idea of fun, you can still go to Safeway and purchase a fully prepared Thanksgiving dinner instead! Offering everything from bread to side dishes and turkey to dessert, clean-up is easy; refrigerate the leftovers and toss the containers! And finally, many of the resorts where our rental properties are located will offer Thanksgiving feasts, but if you really want to celebrate island style, check out the special holiday luaus that can be found throughout the island; the Royal Lahaina and Grand Wailea luaus are two of our favorite examples!
Now that the excitement of your day is drawing to a close, it’s time to end it as it began, with the sounds of the ocean. Let the moon light your way across the sand as you continue the morning’s conversations, only this time with the sand between your toes. And before you get sad about the end of another holiday, just remember that the best part of your day is about to happen when you return to the comfort and serenity of your Thanksgiving escape—reserve yours today!
