"I was sitting at a table on an open bay, / Waiting for drink of rum. / When I asked my waiter for the time of day, / She said look out, there's a centipede coming your way. / In Lahaina, the sugar cane grow, / In Lahaina, the living is slow, / In Lahaina, the mangoes are sweet, / But the centipede, he crawls all over your feet." -- Kenny Loggins and Jim Messina, "Lahaina"
Lahaina is on the Hawaiian island of Maui and has a population of 11,704 (as of the 2010 census). However, since Lahaina is a popular tourist destination, you can expect that population to nearly quadruple during the high tourist season. Don't despair. Although the downtown and waterfront areas may be swarming with tourists at times, Lahaina is spread out over 9.3 miles, which helps maintain the small-town feel, even during tourist season. Overall, Lahaina is a beautiful, relaxing little town, perfect for those interested in escaping the rat race and pursuing a laid-back island lifestyle. See more
Parking can be at a premium in some cities where spaces are challenging to find. Some Lahaina apartments offer parking options, either outside in a common area or within a private garage.
Ask about the stipulations around the parking. Those may include how many guests are allowed and where tenants park.
Some apartments may only allow parking in front of your own unit. Guest parking may be in a common area for up to one person.
If parking is scarce, look around the area before you sign a lease. Ample street parking in a neighborhood championed for its safety is probably fine. However, it’s probably not worth signing a lease if it means battling for daily parking for you and your guests.
Research whether you need a city permit to park in the neighborhood. Look into the associated costs and what to do about visitors who need parking.
Some tenants prefer garage parking near their units. However, an open-air lot may prove cheaper.
Keep in mind that the cost of wear and tear from parking outside can add up. It may be less expensive, in the long run, to look for an apartment with garage parking.
