Lahaina Hotel Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bath, Kitchen, Lanai, Mountain View, Seconds From The Beach Pool & Spa

Our Hotel, Lahaina Shores, will open again on September 19, 2015 with all new plumbing. So please make reservations on my vrbo site, that you are currently on, for any time after that re-opening. We are Really Looking Forward to serving you again after our five month remodel!

Room 224, located on the second floor, features stunning views of the West Maui Mountains and reflects a modern plantation decor. There is a front desk where you check in, receive your key, and check out when your stay is over. There is a concierge who can assist you with booking recreational activities.

Lahaina has the best weather Maui has to offer. The average day here is sunny, clear and about 82 degrees. Two miles north in Ka'anapali, there is twice as much rainfall. Four miles from here in Honokawai, it rains almost every day. Eight miles from Lahaina in Kapalua, it often rains multiple times a day, on average four times the rainfall of Lahaina. Make Lahaina your tropical destination. You'll be glad you did!

The unit is air conditioned and has an in room adjustable thermostat, 47 inch flat screen, king size 'Heavenly' bed, and a beautiful lanai with a breakfast table and chairs. The kitchen is equipped with a full sized refrigerator, as well as a new ceramic cooktop stove with matching microwave. All cooking utensils and silverware are included, as well as a blender, toaster, and coffee maker. Four seats are available for dining inside, two at the bar and two at the dining table.

The unit was recently renovated with new artistic tile insets and beautiful granite countertops in the kitchen and bathroom. Save by eating in for breakfast, and enjoy an amazing number of dining choices for dining out within walking distance. Directly next door through a tropical passthrough is Betty's Beach Cafe a direct waterfront eatery that offers a nice, inexpensive breakfast till' 2:00 P.M. Close to Betty's, is Spanky's Riptide a friendly sports bar. Another twenty steps leads you to two four star restaurants on the beach, including Pacific-O that features amazing fish entrees. Try Lulu's Lahaina Surf Grill near Safeway for great local food. Nalu's in Kihei for the same great local choices. For cheap try #One Barbeque on Wainee St. and Prison Pizza on Prison St. Don't miss Harry Troupe on guitar on Wednesday's and Friday's at Cheeseburger's on Front St. Catch the Hawaiian blessing at Fleetwoods on the rooftop. Rent a Harley on Front Street. Go on the Atlantis Submarine and go down 130 feet and see a really cool wrecked's all good fun!

Resort amenities include, but are not limited to, a large, spacious lobby, a lush oceanfront private oasis including large pool and Jacuzzi, easy beach access less than fifty feet from the lobby, off-street reserved parking ($3 per day) and very convenient access to Front Street Lahaina shops, restaurants, activities, theater, and live music.. You're certain to leave with a lifetime of memories. I am local, please do not be afraid to contact me for any further needs 8 A.M. to midnight, Hawaiian time.

Aloha Nui Loa!

About Pete Smith

I am a retired school teacher. I taught Second and Third Grade for most of my career. Bought land in 2003 and had my house in Lahaina built. I love my beautiful wife, Cat, motorcycles, muscle cars, Maui, and painting scenes from my life and the lives of my friends. My club, RocknRoll MC buys and collects Toys for Tots and School Tools. K Mart gives us a super deal, so we buy up all the new bicycles that need work in the warehouse, fix them, and deliver them to the shelters in Wailuku and Kahului. Big fun for us, big fun for them. It's been good making my life in retirement about motorcycles, art and giving a little help to some of Maui's coolest people...the Keikis. RocknRoll!

Pete Smith purchased this hotel in 2013

Why Pete Smith chose Lahaina

I love Lahaina Shores Beach Resort. It's a boutique hotel like you might find in San Francisco or New Orleans. It isn't a metropolis like the big Ka'anapali hotels. Everything is close. People are friendly. The air smells so fresh. It rarely rains. Baby beach is so beautiful. The hotel is old school in design, but just renovated, so everything feels traditional; but it works and it's so attractive. The pool and the hot tub are just right. The lobby is comfortable and inviting. More fun is just steps away.

It's one mile from my house, so I can take care of my guests easily. The property is just stupid beautiful and yet very affordable to buy, and to rent. And rain bows... and my friends from the mainland line up to visit me....and...and

What makes this hotel unique

It's close to Lulus restaurant (near Safeway). About 1.5 miles away in Cannery Mall. It's famous for many things, including its owner Ron Panzo, who helps everyone in his island wide Ohana. They serve a Banana Foster Desert with local vanilla ice cream, hot and caramelized, bananas, whipped cream and other killa good stuff, so addictive it should be illegal, Awesome Baby Back Ribs, and a crazy good Lava Burger. All at prices so reasonable you won't even believe it. It's not fast food, so be prepared to have drink and wait while everything is prepared fresh. We wen grind Lulu's...Was so Ono! Also live music some nights.

Perfect for a getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Hawaii and this Condo was perfect. Lahaina is the perfect little tourist town and it was perfect to stay in town. There was multiple days that we would just walk into town to see what was happening or find something to eat. It was clean when we got there and everything was just perfect for us.

Friendly, convenient and reasonable

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a place convenient to downtown Lahaina at a reasonable price and this was perfect. The mountain view room actually was better for us as we avoided the hot afternoon sun in the room and could always sit by the pool or on the beach just steps away. The property was furnished with everything we needed and inexpensive parking was right next door. Check in and check out was no hassle and all the staff on the premises were friendly and helpful. The owner also give us some nice recommendations of local sights and attractions.

Lunar eclipse

  • 4 of 5

This resort is a great place to stay located proximately at the south end of the Old LaHaina tourist strip. Old LaHaina is a great place around which to walk and shop or just sit and enjoy a cool glass of wine in dozens of affordable restaurants located on the water or across the street from the water. Lots of things to do in terms of activities launching from the local pier.

For those with a car everything incuding Hana is within a 3 hour relaxing drive.

Just what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

I have never been to Hawaii before, but heard it was expensive (and I suppose it is). My finance and I were fortunate enough to go on a company-paid award trip to Lana'i, but wanted to stay in Maui a few days before going. We were finding prices in the $400 per night range for the resorts and just didn't want to spend that much if we didn't have to. We found this property on VRBO and the pictures looked good and reviews looked good so we decided to give it a try. It exceeded our expectations. This place is very nice and in a great location. It seems to be part hotel and part private rental condos, although you really can't tell which is which. There is a front desk 24 hours that is just like a hotel. The grounds were beautiful, clean, and well-kept. The pool and hot tub were clean and well-maintained as well. The beach is literally right outside the gate of the property and there is a great grass area with plenty of lounge chairs for sunning.

Our unit was not facing the ocean, but was facing the mountains. In the morning we heard birds or some other sort of animal which was very relaxing. (Not loud or obnoxious.) The room was clean and pretty much brand new. It was as nice as a hotel, such as Hyatt or Hilton in my opinion. There was a kitchen with most everything needed, a full-sized refrigerator, and a nice LCD TV. My finance did not like the bed as much as I did. I slept like a baby, but she is used to her memory foam mattress at home so was not quite as comfortable as I was. But, the mattress was brand new and of very nice quality so it's just a matter of preference.

The "resort" was literally right next door to a shopping and restaurant area, and within short walking distance to Front Street, the "main drag" of Lahaina, which is great. This area is not pretentious or showy, it's laid back and friendly. We had a car, so it was also very convenient to the main highway of southern Maui, which we took for some excellent site-seeing.

The owner, Pete, was extremely nice and helpful. I would highly recommend this place for most anyone. We are in our low 50s and were on what you might call a "romantic getaway", but this place had some families with children as well. I'm not sure it would be perfect for the party crowd, since it is not exactly the "night spot". This place has more of a relaxed atmosphere (but not sedentary).

Owner's Response: Roger, thanks so much for the great review. It always makes me smile when people come to Maui, stay in my place and have a great time. I love the laid back atmosphere too. I'm glad you felt my place met all your needs. Hope you'll come back soon. I've never been to Lani'i. I'll have to go check it out! Maybe you can give me some tips on what to do there...Pete

The property was in excellent condition. The kitchen was well furnished. Plenty of towels and washcloths. Very convenient to the lobby and to get into town.

The only drawback, in my estimation, was that the television was not high definition.

Even a little Hawaiian history is available with self guided tours of historic sites within walking distance and free access to the original Lahaina courthouse displays. Lahaina was the summer gathering place for the royal family, so areas that they frequented are identified with signage and fun to discover and read about. This starts just three blocks from the hotel. An ocean going teaching vessel, totally made in the traditional Hawaiian style, is housed just one half block from the hotel and is free to view. It is called the Mokole'ala. You can even volunteer to work on it if you like. The Jodo Mission is a mile and a half from the hotel. It is the largest Buddist Temple in Maui and features beautiful, traditional Japansese architecture and Bonn festivals in June and a New Year’s festival as well, with dancing lions and dragons. The bronze Buddha is one of the largest outside of Asia.

Just past the Misson is Baby Beach where local people love to come with their children because the water is so warm and shallow. The reef protects the swimmers from big waves. You will be welcomed there if you come. Just remember to stay off the submerged rocks and coral when wading, so animals will not be damaged.

The harbor is three blocks away with active fishing boats offloading their catches, dinner cruise yachts coming and going, and the singing lines of sail boats serenading as you walk the promenade and choose your activity for the day. You can go out on one of our many whale watch boats, in season, or just watch them from the pool area at the hotel. We love the Atlantis submarine tour which leaves from the harbor and dives down 130 feet . You are guaranteed to stay dry and see lots of fish.

Farther north, Honolua Bay is great for snorkelling , but so are many other spots, like Black Rock in Ka’anapali. You can go on canoe tours to view marine life breeding areas in Olowalu. Horseback riding in the ranches in the mountains, zip lines, the beautiful drive to Hana, off road adventures on four wheelers, paint ball, skate parks…..You name it….We have it….well, most of it!

Enjoy your stay!
