Hawaii: Molokai looks to ban short-term holiday rentals

Molokai could become the first island in Hawaii where new short-term vacation rentals are banned and old ones are phased out.

The Maui County Council approved a measure last month to place a zero cap on short-term rentals on Molokai, meaning none would be allowed and existing operations would be eliminated within three months, Hawaii Public Radio reported Monday.

The bill is awaiting the signature of Maui County Mayor Michael Victorino.

Maui planners are also considering a ban on vacation rentals throughout the county.
