Whether or not you are positioned on the oceanfront, a tropical vibe permeates throughout our vacation rentals.

Despite the holiday excitement, keep everyone well-rested and at their best throughout your Maui vacation. Our Maui holiday rentals boast bedrooms tucked away from the main living area, so everyone can rest at ease even when keeping to different schedules. Many rentals also boast multiple bathrooms, so whether you’re prepping for a family holiday photo session or simply going through the bedtime routine with the kids, everyone has the space and privacy they need.

A Holiday Getaway to Maui
No matter when you’re scheduling your holiday getaway to Maui, there are bound to be a variety of festive activities on the calendar. Not only are many of Maui’s top activities available year-round no matter which holiday you will be vacationing on the island, but holidays bring a plethora of added options to the event calendar. Celebrate alongside residents and visitors alike at some of Maui’s best holiday events!
If you’ll be on Maui for Christmas, you won’t have to worry about being too far from the North Pole – Santa still arrives on the island each year, often by jet ski or outrigger canoe. The streets and towns of Maui come alive leading up to Christmas, with white twinkling lights strung around palm trees and festive displays alighting the windows. Lahaina Banyan Court Park is especially beautiful during the Christmas season, with the largest banyan tree in the country covering almost two acres completely bathed in lights. If you have yet to finish your holiday shopping and you find Christmas quickly approaching, enjoy stress-free shopping on Maui. A large number of markets pop up around the holidays, offering unique handmade goods that are perfect for gift giving. While it is fun to experience a tropical Christmas with island style holiday tunes and an aloha shirt clad Santa Clause, you will also find some traditions that will give the holidays a familiar feel. Catch the classic rendition of A Christmas Carol at the ProArts Playhouse or The Nutcracker Ballet at Seabury Hall’s ‘A‘ali‘ikuhonua Creative Arts Center. Holiday parades, Santa visits, and holiday-themed 5K fun runs also happen around the island, perfect for the whole family to enjoy together.
Aside from Christmas, the Island of Maui comes alive surrounding other holiday celebrations as well. Dramatic fireworks shows along the oceanfront amp up the festivities for New Year and Independence Day celebrations. Often taking place along the oceanfront, there is nothing more spectacular than watching a vibrant firework display over the reflective water with your toes in the sand.
Most holidays center around a delicious feast, making a luau a great way to celebrate. Attending a luau offers the opportunity to indulge in a wide variety of traditional and contemporary Hawaiian dishes all within a fabulous setting. And of course, a luau wouldn’t be complete without the storytelling that comes through song and dance. The flowing tunes and movements of island music and hula will add a creative spin to your holiday celebration.
Aside from the national holidays that add festivities and fun to the calendar, the State of Hawaii also celebrates additional public holidays such as Prince Kuhio Day and King Kamehameha Day. Celebrations of these holidays are a great way to learn more about Hawaii’s history and culture, while at the same time adding event and activity options to your Maui vacation.
And of course, any holiday is always made better by spending it on one of Maui’s white sandy beaches that are perfect year-round! One of the many amazing things about celebrating the holidays on Maui is that with warm, sunny weather year-round, any holiday can be spent along a picture-perfect shoreline. So, whether you are wearing a Santa hat to the beach on Christmas morning or keeping the summer heat at bay with a dip in the ocean under a firework-lit sky, vacationing on Maui gives reason to celebrate!
Maui Holiday Excursions
If you are visiting Maui during one of the winter holidays, you’re in luck! This is also the time of year when whales migrate from frigid Alaskan waters to the warm waters surrounding the Hawaiian Islands. On occasion, whale spouts can be spotted along the horizon from the shoreline. But to get up close and personal with these majestic creatures, you’ll want to book a whale watching tour with one of the boat companies located on the island. From December to early spring, boats operated by certified captains take passengers out to observe whales in their natural habitats. With a combination of experience and technology, captains can navigate to where whales are most likely to be spotted breaching and slapping their tales alongside your boat. It’s not uncommon for pods of dolphins to join in, swimming and jumping alongside the vessel. Spend your winter holiday on Maui when you’ll get to take full advantage of whale watching season!
Of course, even if you’re planning your holiday getaway for another time of year, there are still plenty of adventures to be had along Maui’s pristine shorelines. Boat cruises are still offered with dolphin watching and snorkeling opportunities throughout the year. Or try one of the many water sports popular on the island, such as surfing, stand up paddleboarding, boogie boarding, kayaking, or canoeing.
While Maui’s coastlines are certainly a draw for travelers, the island also has much more to offer than its beautiful beaches. Give the gift of a land-based excursion such as horseback riding, ziplining, or ATVing, all great ways to experience the beauty of the island’s interior terrain. The island also boasts a vast network of hiking trails and picturesque waterfalls, making exploring by foot well worth the rewards. No matter the holiday or time of year, you will find a wide range of options when it comes to embracing the beauty of the island throughout your holiday stay!
Dine Out for the Holidays
Even if your vacation rental offers a full kitchen with everything you need to prepare meals, it’s still nice to leave the preparation, cooking, and cleanup to someone else while you’re on vacation. Dine out for the holidays at one of the many top-notch restaurants located on Maui, such as Fleetwood’s on Front Street. Situated on charming Lahaina’s main thoroughfare along the oceanfront, Fleetwood’s offers both stunning views and excellent cuisine. Enjoy American fare and fresh seafood dishes at this upscale eatery. Lunch can be enjoyed daily from the rooftop, offering panoramic ocean and mountain views as the backdrop for your meal. Dinner is offered on both floors, so you can have your choice of an inside table or a table beneath the stars. Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion, a special holiday, or simply want to treat yourself to a fine meal, Fleetwood’s on Front Street is one of many delectable options on Maui’s west coast!
