Alaeloa: Short Term Rental Update

Alaeloa Bay Maui

Alaeloa is one of Maui's best kept secrets.  This secluded, gated community of just 42 residences is nestled along West Maui's shore complete with a mango grove and oceanfront pool. Built in 1964, this charming enclave of cottages and duplexes in a residential community, has been called the "Pebble Beach of the Pacific" and has been a much loved vacation destination over the years.  

Maui County defines anything under 180 days as a short term or a transient vacation rental, which is typically not permitted in Residential Districts. Enter the recent question of vacation rentals at Alaeloa:

Maui County Code allows for TVR's in residentially zoned planned developments consisting solely of duplexes or multi-family dwelling units that had had transient vacation rental use on or before April 20, 1981.  While Alaeloa was built in 1964, there was some question by the Maui County Zoning Enforcement Department as to whether Alaeloa was grandfathered in to allow Transient Vacation Rentals (TVR's).  

The Alaeloa Board of directors sought to address the question as to whether short term or vacation rentals were permitted with the county.  The result was the adoption of Maui Ordinance 4369 per a letter issued by the Board of Directors this past week:

"We are pleased to report that as a result of a new Maui Ordinance 4369, transient vacation rentals ("TVR") which are in compliance with Alaleloa's longstanding CCRs are no recognized as being officially permitted by Maui County in Alaeloa."

It should be noted that Alaeloa has a longstanding rental policy with a minimum of a 30 day rental (or no more than one rental per 30 day period), which is unchanged by the new ordinance.  

According to the county site, as of this post, Ordinance 4369 has yet to be codified.
