Built in 1964, the International Colony Club was one of the very early developments on Kaanapali Hillside.  It is one of the few places in a resort community where you can own a free-standing home on Maui with condominiumized grounds, and Airbnb or vacation rent it, without the need for a short-term rental permit.   This makes it ideal for second homeowners looking to offset their operating expenses while not in residence.

The ability to vacation rent at the International Colony Club is a recent change - it is only within the last year or so that this condominium
