B&Bs are a permitted use in residential, business, hotel, rural and agricultural zones. There is a cap on the number of permits that may be approved. See Maui County Code, Section 19.64.030.R for cap numbers.

How to Apply:

According to Ordinance 5300 effective November 26, 2021, "Applications submitted within six months after the effective date of this Ordinance may be processed and approved under the existing zoning regulations in effect immediately prior to the effective date of this Ordinance." This means that up until May 26, 2022, applicants may use the existing form or the new form.
