About Kim Tardie & Gerry Grooms

I own RV Resorts and various business properties throughout the West. I've enjoyed being a host to the visitors at my parks. So renting my Maui Condo seemed like the natural thing to do. I've remodeled the unit completely since I purchased the condo in 2007. Be sure to click the link above to see more photos and information... I think you'll agree with many of my customers who've told me that #117 is 'one of the best at Lahaina Shores.'

Great location, great closet full of beach fun and everything else was lacking.

  • 3 of 5

This location of this condo is great! The basic layout is great too. There was a closet full of beach chairs, umbrellas, and even coolers.

The parking situation wasn’t ideal, we had to park in a stinky garage. The bed and pillows were so bad! My husband ended up sleeping on the couch because the bed was so uncomfortable.

We were told we could check in early but when we got the keys from the front desk the cleaners were just getting started and they didn’t do a very good job.

The bathrooms had black hairs on the floor still and some in the bathtubs. Gross. The towels where very scratchy (and some hair was in them too). The couch needs a solid vacuum job as well. They also need a new coffee pot. It was obviously well loved and made the worst coffee. I had to have it go through 3 cleaning cycles and it was still gross. I ended up going out for coffee.

All and all this is a great condo for the price. Just know the bed is not comfy, pillows are flat and stiff and you may want to bring your own towels/sheets. Also know that this place is like a retirement home, but everyone is really friendly and they will all walk past your front porch all day long. There’s no escaping.

Owner's Response: There seems to have been a misunderstanding about HOW EARLY the guest early check-in was to occur! I'm sorry our housekeeping staff wasn't finished and rushed with the job to accommodate Claire. I always welcome calls from guests 24/7 and appreciate the chance to make things right. Mahalo for your review, your compliments about our condo and for letting me know how we can improve your stay with us. Gerry Grooms

Beautiful Property with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this condo two times. It is very well-appointed, has a beautiful view of the ocean, friendly neighbors, a great pool and calm beach right out front. In our opinion, this is a perfect place for young families because the kids can run around in the grass and it's very easy to make meals in the kitchen and eat dinner out in the grass every night! We love this condo and can't want to come visit again.

Well equipped condo with plenty of beach toys for a family of 4. Close to pool and sandy beach.

  • 5 of 5

This ground floor condo was conveniently located for surfing and paddle boarding. Great for relaxing on the lawn and watching the sunset. The pool and hot tub were enjoyed by all.

One of the Best Locations for Maui

  • 5 of 5

A great condo in Lahaina, which is our favorite location in Maui. The condo opens right to the ocean. The beach is surprisingly long. About a half mile long I would guess. Makes for a good stroll. The sand is nice with some rocks that tend to line up along the tide line. The waters are shallow and calm; you will want to wear the water shoes provided.

Kitchen is new and bed comfortable. Sofa large and comfy. The unit is well supplied with all the stuff you and your family will need including cookware, beach gear, snorkel, water shoes, coolers, floaters, pillows, blankets, towels. While not the best snorkeling, you can see a few cool fish and turtles right out front of the resort.

There is a nice restaurant and bar next door. It's short walk to the harbor and downtown for activites and more restaurants and bars. It's a five minute drive to Kaanapali beach.

The owners will make sure you are happy with your stay. My only recommendation was to upgrade AV system and a small blue tooth speaker. Such small complaints! Your not coming to Hawaii to watch TV anyway.

In terms of the resort property, it is gated and we felt secure. The lobby staff are nice, but don't expect much since this is a self managed condo unit. The pool is smallish, like a three star hotel. Jacuzzi again similar, and could use some work; only 2 or 3 jets were working.

Finally, on the ground floor the resort lanais are lit all night. I understand their reasoning from a security and safety perspective, but it takes a bit away from the ambiance. Anyway, few steps out your door and you get a good view of the night sky and a few more steps and you step out the gate to the sand for a great night sky view and evening stroll.

There is a nightly ocean side luau performance next door. If you are planning a quiet read on the lanai every evening around dinner time, this may not be the place. When we were there during the show, we kind of enjoyed the music, singing and drums - or just closed the door.

When we make another trip to Maui, I will definitely check to see if I can get this unit. One of my favorite vacation places.

Some good points, some not so good

  • 3 of 5

We really did enjoy our stay here, but likely would not choose this particular location again. We loved how close it was to town, so we could walk to all the shops and restaurants on Front Street. But we were not prepared for what assailed us every night... a luau next door, every single night. Once or twice, ok, but every night? Being on the ground floor, it was very loud. Also, being on the ground floor, we had to close the curtains often for privacy, which kind of destroys the view, the main reason for choosing an oceanside location. And since the bedroom is on the street side, even with the ocean-side door open wide, we couldn't hear the surf, another reason we had wanted to be on the ocean. We ended up sleeping on the couch a few nights just so we could fall asleep to the sound of the surf. And our neighbors were almost always on their lanai, talking loudly with everyone, which was annoying at times. Being on the ground floor, is nice, except that you can't see the ocean because of the plantings around the property. A strange feature is that there are mirrors *everywhere*! I guess it's supposed to make the place look bigger, but it seemed odd to us. The tenants seemed to be mostly really old people, which is fine (and you'd think quieter), but let's face it, we all like to see some buff guys and bikini babes at the beach, not gramma and grampa so much. The beach itself was fairly narrow, and while the water was calm due to the coral reef, it was so rocky that was impossible to walk in the water, or even stand in it without surf shoes. If what you want is to be close to Front Street, this place has that. If what you want is a nice ocean view and the sound of the waves, choose another unit (further up for the view, and to the south end of the building, away from the luau).

Owner's Response: First, let me thank our guests for their review and letting us know about their stay with us. We’ve never heard a complaint about the Feast At Lele Luau. It’s one block away, buffered by a row of trees and ends at 9pm. However, I’ve asked the resort staff to monitor the Luau for excessive noise. Lahaina Shores is close to Old Towne but still a beautiful, peaceful spot. Our condo is 25 steps to the beach… although we don’t advertise that you’ll hear the waves from inside the condo. You may hear other guests outside. But, we’ve never before had comments of neighbors talking too loudly or that there weren’t enough “Buff Guys & Bikini Babes.” February is naturally a time when retired folks vacation. For most of our guests, the ground floor location and beach proximity are exactly what they want. They remark that our photos and description are very accurate of the condo, the grounds and the beach at Lahaina Shores. Many rebook for additional vacations due to the great location and amenities. I’m sorry this guest didn’t let me know they were unhappy with our condo. We would have helped them find other accommodations. That’s our guarantee!
