Terms & Conditions
Aloha and Mahalo for choosing Maui Paradise Properties, LLC (MPP) for your vacation stay on our beautiful island of Maui! Our goal is to make your vacation as enjoyable and worry-free as possible.
Good news—our worry-free change and cancellation policy is still in effect for cancellations more than 60 days from check in. You are still eligible to receive 100% credit towards a future stay or cancel minus the $149.00 processing fee.
Our current cancellation policy requires 60 days notice but allows for:
1. rebooking or cancellation of your reservation if Maui enforces a mandated shut down and quarantine; and
2. coverage related to Covid illness of yourself, your traveling party, or family, with the purchase of additional insurance available at a rate of 6.95% of your booking. Hawaii-mandated pretesting is a visitor requirement and is not a cancellable event.

Tenant agrees to pay all reasonable attorneys’ fees and collection costs and expenses associated with the enforcement of this debt to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law. In the event of a rental unit becoming uninhabitable prior to the rental period beyond the control of MPP, or in the event of an error in reservation procedure or change in ownership of the premises which precluded occupancy by the Guest(s), MPP reserves the right to effect appropriate corrective action without loss to MPP. Liability to Property Owner and MPP is limited to rental monies paid by Guest. Notification of such corrective action will be provided to Guest at the earliest possible time. Under no circumstances shall Guest be able to determine if a rental unit is unfit for habitation. Guest understands that in the event a unit becomes unavailable for any reason outside of the control of the Vacation Rental Specialist, MPP reserves the right to relocate the Guest(s) to an alternate property managed by MPP. The Vacation Rental Specialist shall make every reasonable effort to ensure that the replacement property is comparable to the original rented property. The Vacation Rental Specialist shall have the sole discretion to select the replacement property. In such an event, the Guest has the option to: (1) accept the replacement property and pay any additional monies that are owed, as the case may be, or (2) reject the replacement property and receive a refund of all rental fees paid for original property. Guest understand and agree that any choice of the above remedy will be at the discretion of the Guest and shall be at their choice. MPP will not be liable for any inconvenience arising out of relocation as defined herein, and MPP shall not be liable for any damages or liability or any inconvenience from Guest(s) relocation. Guest understands that there is no guaranty that properties adjacent to their rental unit and/or within a resort will be free from disturbances, including but not limited to noise or inconvenience from construction, traffic or other Guests or neighbors. Any such disturbance shall not constitute a breach of this Agreement nor give the Guest any right to a refund or adjustment of the rental fees. Although MPP attempts to inform Guest of any known conditions at time of booking or prior to arrival, we are unable to control such factors. Please be aware that the beach size in Hawaii may vary from month to month due to our heavy surf, strong currents, and high & low tides. Due to Maui’s rural atmosphere you may experience the occasional rooster, as well as harmless geckos. Geckos are friendly, eat insects, and are considered good luck in Hawaii. MPP makes every effort to ensure that Guests stay is safe, comfortable, and enjoyable. The Reservation Agent, nor MPP can guarantee that the Guest’s vacation stay will be flawless nor that the Property and its amenities are in perfect condition during guests stay. MPP takes great care in ensuring that managed properties are clean and pest free. MPP uses only bonded and certified professional cleaning companies. Any cleaning items missed, MPP will make sure the professional cleaning company comes back out as soon as possible to remedy. Although the owners hire professional pest control services, pests such as ants, roaches, and rodents simply cannot be completely controlled in the tropics. Hawaii is a tropical climate, and bugs and pests are a natural occurrence especially with all the open-air conditions. Should you encounter a pest problem, please call us and we will be happy to address the situation. Customer shall give the Vacation Rental Specialist twenty-four (24) hours to address any allegations of any significant bugs or pests are in the rental. To make a claim for refund or discount, the Guest will need a third-party opinion letter within 48 hours from a pest control company not staying in the rental, or connected to the Guest, and who has physically witnessed the issue in the specific unit.
