There’s always something going on in Maui to entertain and enlighten you, and the new year is no exception. Lots of people vacation in Maui during winter months to escape the cold, and given the super-frigid temps in many parts of the U.S. this winter, it’s no surprise you want to get away to a warmer, more tropical locale. Hopefully you’ve already booked one of our Maui condo rentals and are just researching events coming up as 2018 gets underway. We have a few to share with you below!

January 3-7 is when golf fanatics can enjoy the Tournament of Champions 2018 at the Plantation Course at Kapalua. Free admission for some; you’ll want to check out the details at
