Maui Condo and Home uses a combination of methods to bring your Maui home to the market and maintain bookings. We use traditional advertising, websites and social media, and digital advertising programs to increase the awareness of your Maui home for potential vacationers.

Websites

Maui Condo and Home has multiple websites dedicated to its vacation rentals. The main website, MauiCondo.com, features all vacation rentals in our program. Your vacation rental’s specific page will feature real time availability, photos, descriptions, amenities and a map of the location. The website allows vacationers to book your specific vacation rental, an industry standard that helps us be more competitive. Maui Condo and Home also has several smaller websites marketing select complexes. All websites are marketed online by optimizing our sites to promote organic growth and by using Google Ad’s. Maui Condo’s websites have great Google rankings for most relative keywords.

Reservation Sources

Our property management software connects your vacation rental information to individual guests, travel agents and channel partners. Available information includes vacation rental availability, photos, descriptions and amenities. Our system also allows guests and channel partners to book your vacation rental directly into the reservation system, eliminating duplicate bookings or delays and loss of a booking because guests often want to book and confirm their stay immediately - no matter the time of day or night.

Sources of Business

The best sources of business are direct bookings and repeat clients. Our vacation rental quality and customer service standards help us maintain a strong repeat client base as well as good word-of-mouth and referral clients coming in. We reach new clients through our websites and online marketing as well as other advertising sources. Channel Partners are third-party web-based reservations agencies, who are linked directly into Maui Condo and Home’s reservations software for online real-time booking 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days of the year. They receive a commission like standard travel agents.

Our Channel Partners are:

  • VRBO
  • AIRBNB
  • Booking Pal
  • Trip Advisor / Flipkey
  • Hawaiian Beach Rentals

Maui Condo and Home also does business with online travel agents such as, but not limited, to Expedia Group and Booking.com, as well as traditional travel package providers, such as WestJet Vacations from Canada and Pleasant Holidays. Traditional travel agents add to our reservations mix. Our property management software allows partnering travel agents to access online real-time availability and rates, so they can reserve our vacation rentals anytime. Travel agents receive an industry standard 10-15% commission.

Mobile App

In May 2013, Maui Condo and Home went live with Hospitality by Glad to Have You™, which is a personalized travel guide. The app has all the information guests need to know about their vacation rental and what to do while on Maui. The app is interactive and informative, providing guests with important arrival and condo information, as well as customized information on local things to see and do while on Maui. The app is managed by the Maui Condo and Home Marketing team and is updated regularly.
