About the property

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-3)

We have an OCEANFRONT studio located right on a beautiful, sandy beach. Our condominium is on the fifth floor of a seven-story building. It has a lovely view of the island of Lanai, turquoise waters, and our wonderful whales (in winter). It is located on the leeward side (sunset) of Maui.

It is a 22-mile, 45-minute drive from the Kahului Airport. If you are coming to Maui from another island, the West Maui Airport, a limited service airport can be used. This airport is only eight miles from the Lahaina Shores condominium. If you wish to see all the sights of Maui, all standard car rental companies are represented at or near the airports. If you prefer not to rent a car, there are two shuttle services on call.

Next door to the condominium is a charming, little, shopping center with restaurants, shops, and a convenience store. One of the finest Hawaiian shows is located right on the beach a few feet away. You are a short walk to the Lahaina Boat Harbor where you can partake in all the water sports, deep-sea fishing, submarine rides, etc. The historic town of Lahaina offers a magic all her own, bordered on one side by the ocean and the other side by majestic mountains. There are many wonderful places to eat and to do all the shopping you have in mind to do, plus more.

Maui is the golf center of Hawaii with over 15 championship courses. There are two just five minutes away, at Kaanapali. Within walking distance, we have a triple movie theater, many art galleries, and, of course, many T-shirt shops. Bicycles, surf boards, and snorkeling gear can all be rented in Lahaina.

Can't beat the view and beach access!

  • 5 of 5

First time in Hawaii, and this location in Maui was just our speed. If you're looking for low-key relaxing, this is the place. Many nice people at LS property, and after going up to see the craziness at Kaanapali, we were happy we chose LS. The studio is a bit tight on space, with somewhat dated decor, but the view is nice (they have binoculars for whale watching!), the kitchen has the items you need, and the lawn and hot tub are perfect for sun bathing and soaking. Many people have been coming for years, and we will certainly be back to this location. No real drawbacks other than no couch for comfortably relaxing inside not on the bed, and the pillows are stiff (but I brought my own as I'm admittedly picky).

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your first trip to Hawaii. If and when you return to the islands you will probably notice that the decor in our unit is pretty common in the islands. We recently updated the furniture and some accents in the place but we chose to retain a tropical feel/bamboo decor, so that we and our guests can appreciate the island feel while in the unit. You don't see much of this decor on the mainland. Couches are more suitable in the one bedroom units. I suppose it's all about taste and budget. Hope you do return, with or without your pillow:) Aloha!

Stayed here from 02/04/17 to 02/14/17. We have stayed at Lahaina Shores many times. The Condos are owned privately so each condo is different. This condo is on the 5th floor facing the ocean, the view is great. The condo has plenty of pots, pans and what ever you need to cook in the condo and plenty of dishes. There are grilles on each side of the building for use at no charge. Stove, oven, dishwasher and microwave all worked fine. This is not a resort for onsite activities, it's more very relaxed and a place to unwind. The beach is right out front of the condo building and kayak or surfing is available right next door. The staff of the building are very helpful however because you rent directly from the owner you may miss out on some things they may provide if renting directly from them. You do not get any daily maid service, it's up to you to keep it clean. There is no in-room laundry but there are washers and driers (each cost $2.50 per use) on this floor. Parking is at the owner cost ($3.95 a day I believe), not the normal (and higher) parking fee. Lahaina Shores is a couple of blocks from the main part of Lahaina so walking to harbor, shops and restaurants is easy and relaxing and you wont have to battle to find a 2 or 3 hour parking space. The room has a murphy bed allowing for more room in the condo when the bed is up, we've had both types when staying at Lahaina Shores, without the murphy bed the rooms are very tight. Dave the owner is easy to contact and responds fast. Dave does provide free internet access. Couldn't have been happier (unless stayed longer) and using VRBO is easy.

Thank you Dave.... Bob Mc

What a great Condo and a Great Complex. The Complex has 6 units and the amenities are fantastic: Pool and Deck on the Sunny side, Bar-b-ques, Individual decks right on the Ocean. Everybody staying here was friendly and that made it even more special. This is a well appointed and well maintained Condo. Cynthia, thanks for a great stay. We will be back.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Lahaina Shores several times, and this was the best room we have stayed in. The location of the room on the 5th floor is a big plus. It allows you to see the sunset over the palm trees. Sitting on the lanai every morning and evening is one of the most pleasant things we have experienced in Hawaii. The room is dated, but everything works and the room was clean. The cost of the room more than compensated for the older appearance. The million dollar view is the same for this room as it is for every other room on the west side of the building. We even liked the pictures on the walls (photographs of Maui towns). As for the convenience of the Lahaina Shores location, one cannot find a better place if walking through Lahaina daily is something you like to do. We have returned year after year because of the location. The facilities are very nicely maintained with a beautiful pool, lanai, lawn area immediately adjacent to a lovely beach. We hope to return to this location and unit next year.

review of room 525 Lahaina Shores

  • 5 of 5

The studio room was very well equipped and spacious. The use of a murphy bed gave the studio a lot of living space. The pool and beach access were excellent. The location of the Lahaina Shores was excellent for walking in the town. The shop and restaurants next door were very convenient. We would definitely highly recommend this room and the Lahaina Shores.

Excellent view. Great location.

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location, within walking distance of the town of Lahaina (shops, restaurants, bars, tours, etc.). The view each morning from the room was amazing along with the sunsets at night.

The owners were very helpful and informative with any questions or comments we had. The descriptions were as advertised.

If we had to give a con, it would be the amenities could use a little updating (towels, beach chairs. Etc.)

Overall, we would use again and recommend to anyone else.
