Hawaii is one of the most sought after locations in the world. You only have to Google it once to really understand why – the term ‘beautiful’ isn’t strong enough and doesn’t do it any justice at all. This is a location the encompasses Mother Nature at her most placid and at her most fiery, and it all comes together in a Hula dancing way which is totally intoxicating to first, second, or even third-time visitors.
There are several islands within the State’s archipelago, but Maui is one for those who really want to appreciate nature and chill the hell out. Check out the stunning Haleakala National Park, stunning waterfalls, amazing beaches (around 30 ales of them to be exact) and if you’re a fan of sea life, you absolutely must visit Molokini, the famous snorkelling site which is packed with underwater wonder.
Of course, when staying on an island as special as this, you need accommodation which fits the bill. As ever, you’re in luck because we’ve rounded up the most incredible Airbnbs in Maui, Hawaii.
8. A Luxury Maui Villa With Pool And Sun Deck
This sprawling villa is so stunning we simply couldn’t resist including it on our list of most incredible Airbnbs in Maui! A true ‘home away from home,’ though an extremely luxurious one, the bedrooms alone are enough to make your eyes water. There are four of them, each one impossibly larger than the last, with ensuite bathrooms for extra privacy. This luxurious villa with swimming pool can easily house 10 people, so it is the ideal choice for large families or groups who want to chill out in natural surroundings and enjoy each other’s company.
The outdoor spaces are truly what sets this place apart. The swimming pool is partly shaded by lush, tropical trees, while a huge sundeck with loungers is the perfect spot to top up your tan. You’re just two blocks from the beach and right next door to a stunning golf course, in case you’re keen for a round or two. This ideal spot for a family or group getaway is yours from $745 a night.
7. A Resort-Style Apartment With Stunning Ocean Views

With space for six people, this resort-style rental has two large bedrooms and two bathrooms, but what really steals the show is the private balcony! The entire beach-facing window opens out to create an outdoor area which is perfect for sunset views, chilling together, and eating some of the delicious seafood the island is famous for. Part of a glamorous resort property, this apartment also has a large garden section downstairs, but will you ever want to leave the balcony and that impossibly blue view? Chances are that no, you won’t! You’re close enough to the beach and the chilled out nightlife too, whenever you’re able to tear yourself away from the ocean view.
