Overview

Lahaina Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Our OCEANFRONT studio renovations are complete as of December 30, 2011. From our fifth floor private balcony your ocean view is unobstructed. Sit in our new bar height patio chairs (the height lifts you above the railing for an especially beautiful and unobstructed view!) and enjoy the palm trees, the ocean, the Island of Lanai, whale watching in the winter months and the incredible Maui sunsets. We added free in-room WiFi in December 2012.

Everything in our condo is brand new, including bar height outdoor furniture, granite counters, walk in shower, Serta Perfect Sleeper king size bed, furniture and linens. Also we have new Frigidiare oven, microwave and refrigerator.

If you would like to view our other property at Lahaina Shores Beach Resort, go to VRBO number 48744. We have been owners at Lahaina Shores for 10 years. Please read our 'Traveler Reviews' listed there.

Enjoy Lahaina Shores Beach Resort's beautifully remodeled lobby plus the private sandy beach and ocean side swimming pool and spa. Washers and dryers are located on each floor and were updated in 2014 so that you can use a credit card.

At Lahaina Shores resort you feel miles away from the crowds, yet you can walk into the historic town of Lahaina in just two minutes. Lahaina Shores is a great place to stay if you do not want the commercialism of a big resort. It provides true Hawaiian atmosphere. Downtown Lahaina offers an astonishing array of art galleries, shopping, and dining.

A short walk along the beach is the Lahaina Boat Harbor where you can arrange any water activity imaginable. Maui has 15 championship golf courses with two located just five minutes away at Kaanapali.

Check the availablity calendar and contact me with any questions or to reserve dates either by phone or email.

Keywords: Directly on the beach, floor to ceiling remodel, fifth floor view.

Why Karel & Jim Gill chose Lahaina

My husband and I love this location. These small studios have everything you might need on vacation. The view is breath taking and restaurants, shopping, and the boat harbor are all within walking distance.

What makes this studio unique

Our bar height furniture makes sitting on the balcony our favorite activity. Morning coffee and sunset wine have the best view in town.

Awesome Maui Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We spent our 15th anniversary at Jim and Karel's condo and we had a ball. The condo was clean and comfortable and the views from the lanai were picture perfect. The breezes were so pleasant that I think we only used the AC one time. We were also able to see several whales on a snorkel trip to Lanai. Great restaurants within a 10 minute walk from the complex. I highly recommend Koi's Grill down next to Kimo's. Great happy hour with appetizers and right on the ocean. No negatives at all regarding this rental. I've seen some other comments about the luau next door. We didn't have any problem at all. They were usually done by 9:15. We would definitely stay here again on our next trip.

Owner's Response: Hello J and M, thank you for your great review and especially your comments about the music from the Luau next door. We love walking into Lahaina for dinner too and walking instead of driving back after a drink is great. So happy you enjoyed your trip and please come back and rent from us again soon. Karel and Jim Also, thank you especially for the repair you did, it was very much appreciated!

Picture Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our Maui vacation. Everything about this rental was perfect. From the moment we arrived at the Lahaina Shores Resort, we had nothing but the best customer service. Once inside the condo, we found it to be immaculate. Everything was as it was described and the pictures are very accurate. We found the bed to be very comfortable, the shower had great pressure and all appliances have been upgraded. The grounds are well groomed and the pool is kept very clean. The owners are great to deal with. The resort is within walking distance to the shops on Front Street. I recommend this rental to anyone. We will definitely make this our first choice when we return. A few words about the luau next door, we could barely hear it over the sound of the crashing waves and it was done by 9pm. We slept with just the screen sliders each night as the sound of the ocean was so incredible. You will not be disappointed when selecting this unit!

Amazing honeymoon in this beautiful rental!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this studio for our honeymoon and it was absolutely perfect. It is clean, modern and all updated and had everything we needed. We slept with the Lanai doors open at night to listen to the sound of the waves which was the best part of the trip! The lanai is great for evening cocktails and morning coffee. Check in and check out were super easy, everyone at the front desk is so nice and helpful. The pool, hot tub and grounds are immaculate. I would highly recommend staying in this beautiful rental. The little details like the turtles on the tile floor make it so unique. We had the threat of 2 hurricanes while we were here which is unheard of in Hawaii and everyone kept us carefully informed and reassured us along the way. Karel also made a point to check in before the storm. This resort is the perfect location, right on the ocean but also walking distance to the town of Lahaina where the shops and restaurants are. There is also a complex immediately next door that is so cute and classy and has nice restaurants, surf lessons and rentals as well as a few small shops. Karel was very easy to get in touch with and was very flexible and easy to work with. I would absolutely stay here again and hopefully we will soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you Kristine for taking the time to give us this great review. I know it is time consuming and we appreciate it. We are happy that you enjoyed our condo for your honeymoon. I have heard that there are couples who have been coming back to Lahaina Shores for 30 years each year to celebrate their anniversary. Maybe we will see you for your first anniversary? Karel and Jim

ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5

It's as if this unit was made to order just for us! Beautifully appointed, white-glove clean, plenty of closet & drawer space, comfy bed & pillows...seriously wonderful! We enjoyed our coffee on the balcony every morning, then walked the beautiful beach that was literally steps from the front door. Next door to the property, there is a cafe, a rental vendor where you can obtain surf/paddle boards, lessons, etc., a sundries & gift shop, etc. Walk in to downtown Lahaina for breakfast, shopping, sightseeing, lunch, dinner (don't miss sunset from the rooftop dining area of Fleetwoods!). After spending a long day touring, this condo is a peaceful respite at the end of the day. Others have mentioned the luau next door...we actually enjoyed 'overhearing' it while enjoying a nightcap from the balcony watching the moonlight on the waves. We cannot wait to return, sooner rather than later we hope!

Exactly as expected!

  • 5 of 5

We have nothing but good things to say about this property. When I walked in the room it was just like the picture! Karol is wonderful to work with. If you want a great breeze, just open the balcony slider, pull the screen and fall asleep to the sound of the ocean! I would highly recommend this property. You can walk to Lahaina for shops, excursions or a meal. Enjoy the pool or walk along the ocean. Relax and have some fun!

Disappointment

  • 3 of 5

The room is beautiful as described and as the pictures show, however, the luau every night from 6-9:30 pm was very annoying, especially on travel day when you just want to get some sleep. My husband was so irritated it didn't make for a very relaxing trip which was much needed. Even with the doors shut, it was very loud, then we were subjected to water beetles, where you weren't suppose to open your doors at night or they would come in, as we witnessed in the room of the couple we went with, we spent an hour killing these nasty insects. Then fire alarm testing for a couple hours from 11-1, and then pest inspection on a Thursday & Friday 9-5. So we ended up having to work everything around that. We stayed for 14 days, and in previous posts it was said that a midweek cleaning was included, which we never received. The utensils were very flimsy (silverware was very sturdy) I am talking about pancake turner I was afraid it would break, and the knives do not cut a darn thing, good thing we had another couple traveling with us because they would bring the knives from their unit so we could cut meat, tomatoes, onions etc. Last time we went we stayed in their other rental on the third floor and everything was wonderful and we never heard the luau. So you need to decide what your vacation is about whether relaxing or partying and then decide which location fits your needs.

Owner's Response: Hello Lynn, naturally we want all our renters to have a first rate experience in our condo and we are very concerned that your vacation did not meet expectations. We will replace the utensils as soon as possible. Lahaina Shores management decides when to spray for pests. It happens over a two day period but you only need to be gone from the room for about 2 hours. If you check with the front desk, they can give you a more precise time. I will add this to our welcome letter. And the Luau! We find that drums and music are the loudest from 9 to 9:30 at the finale of the performance. We apologize that you did not know this in advance. We have checked and the water beetles are unpredictable and we have been lucky enough to never have experienced that annoyance ourselves. Our front desk is prepared to help any guest that has an infestation. Once again our apologies for the frustrations you felt in our condo. Be assured that we will do all we can to address these issues.
