Don't you guys get it? Illegal vacation rentals are ILLEGAL. Against the law.
While they DO offer budget accommodation for a few visitors, their net effect is to drive up rents and real estate prices - the cost of living - for the people who actually live here.
The ONLY people on Maui who are PRO illegal vacation rental are...wait for it...the ones who are making all the tax free money off it. DOH!
There are plenty of nice LEGAL places to stay. I have no sympathy for a bunch of whiney carpet baggers, and I can assure you, they are doing no favors for the Maui windsurfing community with their calls for 'solidarity'.
