    Hello all!
    This is my first post to the Maui Forum. My name is Sydney and I plan on getting married sometime in May 2011 at either the Sugarman Plantation Estate or Olowalu Plantation House on Maui depending on where we find a 7 - 9 bedroom vacation house for our wedding party. If we find a house in Lahaina we'll have the wedding at Olowalu and if we find a house in Kihei we'll have it at the Sugarman Estate. If anyone knows of affordable (around 2,000 per night) vacation rentals in Lahaina or Kihei I'd appreciate it!

    Thanks so much!

      Hey Sydney! Welcome to the forum :)

      Well I have a couple links of some vacation rentals that I had found. I don't know much about them but just came across them when I was searching for accommodations. I honestly don't know how many you're going to find with 7 bedrooms for $2000/night but I'm sure you know that lol. All of these are in Lahaina, I believe.

      This one has 7 beds/4 baths/sleeps 14:
      Sunrise of the Heavens

      This one has 6 beds/5 baths/sleeps 12:
      Serenity of the Seas

      This one has 4 rental units/4 baths/sleeps 14:
      Wai Ola

      You can also search these websites:
      Owner Direct, Maui
      Vacation Rentals on Maui

      Anyway, hope that helps!

        Thanks for your advice Azulskies! We are in the process of booking Serenity of the Seas! It has a Library, Media room and Loft and the owners bring in actual beds so we will be able to kind of make it a 9 bedroom with a little adjusting AND it's like ten minutes away from Olowalu where we're getting married! I can't tell you how excited I am!

        Thanks again!

            Im in the same boat as you! Except im an April 2011 bride, and we are definitely having the wedding at Olowalu Plantation. But I'm in the process of searching for near by vacation homes. So glad you made this post.

              CJHANNAN, if you are interested in a vacation house close to Olowalu definitely check out Serenity of the Seas, make sure to go through Owner Direct so you can avoid the 10% fee to the vacation rental company! The owners allow up to 22 people to stay at the house for an additional fee and they bring in beds so people are not on couches or anything. It's less than 10 minutes away from Olowalu! Also, if you have a bunch of people the same owner owns a 7 bedroom house a short walk away on the same property. A bit more pricey and less room, that's why we went with Serenity of the Seas.

              Good luck!

                I wanted to correct myself, do not go through owner direct go through vacationrentals.com from HomeAway here's the website. The owner info is on the page!

                  We stayed at Wai Ola's honeymoon cottage for 8 days and it was fantastic! The owners were helpful, but didn't intrude. They welcomed us with a fruit basket and provided baked goods on a daily basis. The property is just a few blocks above the end of Front Street in Lahaina and only about a 2 minute drive to Ka'anapali. We would highly recommend it (also see the reviews on Tripadvisor).
