Lahaina Shores Beach Resort 475 Front Street Lahaina, Hawaii 96761
A wonderful alternative to the fast paced expensive resorts of Kaanapali and Kapalua. A block by beach or side walk to historic Lahaina Town. Lahaina's only beach front property where restaurants, shops, and nightlife are just steps away. The water in front of Lahaina Shores is calm and protected by a reef, just perfect for swimming or water floats. No shark worries, either. Hang out on the beach, swim, snorkel, or enjoy the lawn, pool or hot tub. Simply the best place, best location, and best value.
Free high speed internet for our guests.: (but you must ask the Front desk for the access code)
Just ordinary, hard working people who love Maui and specifically Lahaina Shores. Every year, we look forward to enjoying 5 weeks in our condo.
Carol Pranitch or Jane Martin purchased this condo in 2002
More than 25 years ago we discovered Lahaina Shores and ever since we would not stay any where else. We jumped at the chance when the opportunity arose to purchase a condo there. We truly love this place, the awsome view, the convenience to Lahaina town, the friendly guests and staff, the atmosphere.
Did I ever tell you what a fantastic time that Joe and I had in Lahaina at your place? The condo is a near-perfect place; the only thing better would be ... hmm, I can't think of anything to improve! (You can quote me on that.)
I am bringing my daughter to Lahaina at the end of April. (April 23 to May 2, to be exact.) It's her 15th birthday. (Aw.) I'd love to stay in your condo again; it's my first choice. It looks like, from the calendar, that those dates are available.
Just let me know! And thanks.
My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in this wonderful mountain view condo for 10 days and nights. The owners were great hosts and went above and beyond to accomodate every need. The murphy bed was awesome as it gave us added room and the full use of a living room during the day. It was very clean and nicely decorated in the Hawaiian theme with beautiful local art. The added bonus of the many music CD's was much enjoyed and there is a large library of current DVD video's as well. (We didn't watch any because we were too busy having fun.) I felt more like a guest in someone's home than a client in a hotel. There is an abundance of kitchen essentials, big, fluffy towels, comfy pillows, everything you could think of and more. The convenience of this codo was also a huge plus. The Lahaina Shores is within a 15-20 minute walk to anywhere in Lahaina, no car is necessary and it takes 5 minutes to get downtown. The town is wonderful, I much prefer it to Ka'anapali. There is beautiful local and international art galleries, wonderful restaurants, nightlife, every shop imaginable without being cheesy and touristy. Do Banyan Tree Park - stunning, plus art/craft festivals on Weekends. Most amazing, watching the Humpback Whales play all day long right from the resort. I highly recommend you come here during whale season (mid-Dec to end of April). Do a whale watch tour, also fabulous Luau's - we did Feast at Lele`. Expensive, but well worth every penny - Also it is right next to the resort so if you have one too many Maitai's or Pina Colada's from the free open bar, you merely need to stumble a few feet to get back. Also, snorkeling was at Molokini was great, swiming with the Sea Turtles at Olawalu - fabulous!!! (my personal favorite). Definitely see concierge MK or Anushka to get the best deals for tours - they'll tell you the best ones for your needs & will save you money. Don't forget to ask for coupons - lots of 2 for 1 dining deals & free deserts. If you do bring a car, drive the coast - stunning, visit the Iao valley - see the Iao needle - breathtaking. Of course Haleakala Crater & Road to Hana - highly recommended, we never did do either of those - that's ok, something to go back for. One caveat! Very limited parking - if you rent a car, be aware. Convenient if travelling away from the town but not needed locally. If we go back, (and we plan to), I wouldn't stay anywhere else. My personal little secret, and now yours too.
The condo was good value for the affordable (for Maui standards!) nightly rate, but could really use a bit of love. Carpet is not exactly "new" as the description states (some stains, etc.), the dish washer is brutal to use (bottom rack doesn't slide, extremely loud), cupboards have a bit of a musty smell as does the air-conditioning unit, bathroom ceiling has had some obvious water damage, and bathroom vents are in some serious need of cleaning. As long as you're not expecting luxury, this place does fine - Especially if you're planning on spending most of your time out adventuring and really just need a place to lay your head. The bed is comfy, the view and location are phenomenal, the extra snorkel set came in handy, and the kitchen has whatever you need. Bring some extra towels - We were only provided 2 full-size towels (but 3 hand towels!?) for two of us for a 10-day stay so ended up having to do laundry a couple times and it's pricey. Parking was convenient in the parkade next door for $3.50 / night so pretty reasonable, and the concierges downstairs are super helpful. Top Recommendations: Road to Hana (rent a motor bike if you can - so fun!!!), Haleakala Crater, Old Lahaina Luau, and dinner at Star Noodle (AMAZING food!).
Fabulous location for scenic walks up and down a tropical beach that had limited numbers of walkers. The grounds and hotel were very charming and meticulously maintained by friendly staff. This hotel represents the Hawaii that you have envisioned before you ever have made a trip to Hawaii. Very easy walk to the heart of Lahaina. Spacious room for a studio and very well provisioned with kitchen needs and beach toys.
We had an amazing time at this condo. They were accomodating and the property was beautiful. The condo was clean and comfortable. The worst part of it was that we had to leave! If we are ever lucky enough to go back to Maui, we would definitely stay in this condo again! Highly recommend it, couldn't have been any better!
This unit delivers everything it advertised! The building's public areas, except for hallways in need of new carpeting, were well kept and being steps from the beach is a real plus. Walking distance to everything in town made the evening dinner trek really fun. Local bar as well as a luau next door, viewable from a beachfront restaurant/bar, for no charge except for a drink or two, was a treat. View of the cloud covered mountains reminded us of the perpetual sun over Lahaina. Driving north to North Shore luxury resorts and beaches, south to Kihei and southeast to Hana were all convenient from here. Snorkeling/kayaking at Olawalu Beach was 15 minutes away.
Murphy bed was comfortable and easy to operate and everything we needed was provided for, including, beach towels and mats, boogie board, raft, snorkel gear, washer/dryer on the same floor(expensive though).
Safeway grocery just up the road for breakfast foods to start the day, and a gelato shop for after dinner treats to end the day made perfect bookends. What more could one want?
We just returned from 2 wonderful weeks in this condo.
The condo is great and the location was fabulous! Very convenient to access a lot of Lahaina.
The description here was very accurate and I would not hesitate staying here again.
My favourite, Feast at Lele right next door. The food was unbelievable.
Thanks again for letting us stay in your condo!! Barb and Wayne.
