I am in a similar position seeking a 2+ bedroom in S. Kihei for 3 months next spring (April - June). $7000+ for 3 months via VRBO is not an option.

I will be researching extensively all options in the coming weeks....I'll post anything that looks viable...So far the 'short term' leases have been minimum 6 months for Piilani Gardens, Kihei Village, and a few others. I would think there would be 3 month furnished leases. I don't require turn key as we could bring or buy linens, pans, dishware, and rice cooker lol!!

Check craigslist. I just move here and rented a room in a house, which worked out great and is month to month. I know you're looking for more than that, but you might be able to find an ohana through a private party who is willing to lease short term, or someone who is going to the mainland temporarily and renting out their apartment or house. Just use common craigslist sense and be careful about sending money before meeting people/seeing places.

Some things are just not worth the discounted price. Getting stuck in a scam, or having rented a place that is not what you expected, is costly. Perhaps plan on staying in an inexpensive hotel for a couple of days, or condo that is in a rental pool, until you find a place you can inspect yourself before signing the contract or exchanging money.

For a car rental, I've had good luck using Priceline's bidding option. There are a couple of catches, though. You cannot return the car early, nor extend the rental on the original contract. And some rental companies price gouge at the rental desk when you pick up the car ... while they normally will allow spouses to drive for free, they charge for spouses if the rental is through an outside booking.

I just posted this in another thread, but if you are looking for rentals on craigslist. Make sure the ad has an 808 area code, and that the pictures don't contain 'MRAM' black and white watermark copyrights. The 'MRAM' stand for Maui Association of Realtors, and the pictures were most likely copied from a real estate website.

There aren't really short term rentals aside from VRs. There are month to month rentals, but not that many.
