Overview

Lahaina Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

These condominiums are located on a fabulous piece of paradise, on the beach less than 150 feet from the ocean's soothing waves. Fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean. Step out onto your own private lanai for a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.

In the winter months, you will be able to watch the humpback whales playing in the ocean. Part of the daily routine is to watch the sunset from the lanai's or the beach. Swim in the beautiful pool which is surrounded by tropical gardens. You can also barbecue next to the pool.

Maui, also called the Valley Isle, has the potential to offer visitors dreamlike, even surreal, experiences: floating weightless in a rainbowed sea of tropical fish, standing on top of a 10,000 foot volcano, watching the sunshine color the sky, or listening to the raindrops in a bamboo forest.

Maui is really just a casual collection of small towns with a slow, peaceful way of life where car horns are only used to greet friends and posted store hours mean nothing if the surf is up.

About Jan or Paul Shields

My husband Paul, our two Umbrella Parrots and two kitties love Maui. You will find us either on Maui or in San Diego but same contact info either way.

Jan or Paul Shields purchased this condo in 1999

Why Jan or Paul Shields chose Maui

Valley Isle Resort Condos are located 150 feet from the ocean on the West Shore of Maui.

WE HAVE TWO CONDOS NEXT TO EACH OTHER PLEASE SEE vrbo #752576 FOR VALLEY ISLE RESORT #402

"'Maui no ka oi" means 'Maui is the best' of the Hawaiian islands and the West coast is the best part of Maui. Sit on your private lanai and watch the whales play in the ocean in the winter or just enjoy the fabulous ocean and tropical gardens in the summer season. Conde Naste Traveler magazine voted Maui the best island in the world for years! Valley Isle has a beautiful beach, pool, BBQ, and is close to everything. Maui is just a casual collection of small towns with a peaceful way of life, car horns are only used to greet friends, posted store hours mean nothing if the surf is up and taking time to watch the sunset is a part of the daily routine. Even so, you will never be able to do all of the fun things that there are to do on Maui, from snorkeling in dormant volcanoes to swimming in the many waterfalls on the drive to Hana! The thrills are endless, any time of the year.

What makes this condo unique

Sunshine & Rainbows has two condos at the Valley Isle Resort: #401 and #402. Both have one bedroom with a queen size bed, both have a queen sized sofa sleepers in the living rooms, large lanai's facing the ocean, dining rooms, full kitchens including, stove, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher all appliances including a washer and dryer and free high speed internet access. The dressing room is separate from the bath/shower room. Linen is provided. There is an outdoor pool, with a barbeque area next to it. Ceiling fans in living room and bedrooms, free on island telephone service, answering machine, HD LCD TV with VCR & DVD. Rooms are light and airy with open views. Parking is free and convenient. Just call 808-250-2222 We do not have any hidden costs or fees. smiles

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jan & Paul;

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful Maui home with us. Love the decor & you definitely thought of everything needed to make it feel like home. We had such a lovely time, saw many area we missed our preceding visit to Maui (Blowhole, Dragon Teeth@ kapalua). Especially enjoyed seeing the sea turtle that came to shore each night.

Maui experience

  • 3 of 5

Back from Maui and have some positive and negative reports--First the positive--The condo unit was exactly as advertised. The unit was completely updated and made our stay very comfortable--good view of the ocean--bed was very comfortable for sleeping--shower and kitchen where excellent and management on premises was very cooperative. Negative---If you like beaches then Maui is not the place to vacation. All the beaches on the west side of the island are gone from water erosion that has wiped away the sand including the condo at valley isle. Maui is not what I remembered from years ago--to many hotels and condo's--to touristy--to many fast food chains--as far as I am concerned it has lost all its Hawaiian charm.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry you didn't enjoy our beach. Just like everywhere else in the world, and Hawaii, we had a very bad El Nino year. March and April did rob us of our beach. It has not been this bad since 1996. We did an emergency sandbag revetment to protect our beach. Now, the sandbags are being covered by the summer swells. It has been amazing how much sand has come back and covered the sandbags and the beach. We expect the beach to continue to grow and expand as it covers the sandbags. We have many layers of sandbags under the beach, and you can only see the top sandbags near the shoreline. We are expecting those near shore sandbags to also be covered in the next month or so. Eventually, we will work with the Army Corp of Engineers do sand renourishment to make a beach larger than it originally was. I have photo's, and the beach is not small. It just isn't as huge as it once was.

Great Quiet Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and i spent 16 nights in 401 and loved it. The location is nice and quite and close to almost everything. The unit itself is fully equipped and we did not want for anything. Both lanai's were great and the sound of the water at night was so relaxing. while the beach is small it is never crowded and the water is beautiful! We swam at least once a day. The pool area is very nice and clean and not crowded and the water was great. We enjoyed using the BBQ and herb garden many times with no issues at all. It is a great location as a base camp as we had a car and saw as much of Maui as we could. Beach chairs, Snorkel Gear, Boogie Boards were all provided which was great. We did not have any problems at all and really enjoyed the location. The convenience store and liquor store across the street were very convenient as was the Pub :). I would not hesitate to rent this unit again, the unit was precisely as advertised. Paul and Jan were easy to deal with and offered much fantastic information which we used as it was our first trip to Maui. Great place to stay! Enjoy!

Mahalo!!!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about Jan and Paul. I felt like I had made a new friend after spending time with Jan on the phone. At the last minute their condo was not available. A unit several floors above them sprung a leak and it affected the ceiling which was under repair during our scheduled time there. In this peak season, it took Jan and Paul many hours to find us a unit in a resort that they liked. They could have simply returned our money but NO.....they went the extra mile to find us a place that would be satisfactory to us. Their condo in Valley Isle is in a great location with great views. We will definitely book with Jan on our next trip to Maui....

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your graciousness! If I had to have a crisis, at least I did get to deal with a lovely lady and indeed a friend! We are all repaired so do come back next time. Warmest Aloha, Jan Shields

Great Base Camp

  • 5 of 5

We booked the condo at the last minute and felt lucky to get such a great place. Both the living room and bedroom in 401 have a balcony. The sound of crashing waves all day long. Plenty of room. Jan and Paul where great to work with. They had so much info on the area and Maui in general. The location of the condo was a perfect base camp for our daily adventures.

Bedroom balcony with an ocean view, just breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

We have been to this condo 5 times over a span of 10 years or so, and it gets better every time we go. The furniture is very comfortable and clean. The decor is very natural and authentically Hawaiian (to me, a Persian dude from L.A.).

This last trip was amazing. The new tile floors are beautiful and keep you cool on hot days. The kitchen granite counter tops are luxurious. The rain shower with body jets are so therapeutic, and really helpful for washing sand off after coming back from the beach. The owner was so helpful with our questions and very responsive to our requests.

The grounds at the condos are beautiful. They have fancy Weber bbq's and we cooked up a feast. It was a bonus to find there were boogie boards and snorkel gear in the condo as well. The location is great. It's near Whaler's Village and Ka'anpali where there are great places to snorkel.

Our kiddos loved the condo and found the sofa very comfortable. We loved sleeping with the balcony open and listening to the waves all night.

My parents also loved staying next door in 402. They had so much fun and were really able to rest and relax in the condos.

We were sad to leave, and can't wait to go again!

Horrible experience - Renter Beware!

  • 1 of 5

Although this apartment may look good from the ad, I would warn anyone from staying here as our experience was horrible. First of all, the apartment is unbearably hot. The fans provided just push the hot air around and we did not sleep for days because of the heat. We rented this apartment specifically to have a washer and dryer yet we were not able to use the washer as it smelled terrible and was full of mold. The dishes and bowls provided are made from a cheap plastic material which is not microwave safe so unless you plan on not using the microwave, they are useless. The tv has a pink stripe down the centre of the screen which is extremely annoying when watching it. I could go on but am sure you get that this apartment made for an awful stay. We communicated with the owner who was quick to respond that she would replace the plates but never did. She also told us to go get some bleach and clean the moldy washer ourselves! After communicating our dissatisfaction with the items, the owner changed our keyless entry code and locked us out! When we called her on this, she pretended it was a mistake and eventually provided the new code. Horrible apartment and pathetic service.

The pool area and bbq area are nice and location is great. I'd recommend the building but would warn renting this apartment from this owner.

Owner's Response: Aloha Lisa, I am not sure why you didn't use your correct name when posting this review? I am curious as to what is really going on with this review? Paul and I are known for our customer service. We have no hidden fees. 401 is probably the most nicely decorated condo in the entire complex. It is oceanfront, so I went all out on the remodel. We have quartz counters, backsplashes and solid cherry, high quality cabinets, as you know. I have everything you need for the kitchen and when a guest wants something else, I buy it for them and stock it. I tried to bring you brand new dishes, but you would not answer the phone to give me permission to enter. I bought Bosch non-condensation washer and dryer. I love them! I was in the condo prior to you, October 19-23, making sure everything was good for the winter guests. I saw nothing wrong with the washer or dryer. However, I did send out an appliance repairman immediately after you complained. Then you asked me for money. As I handled the situation immediately, I said no. The day you said it was hot, we looked up the weather: it was 81F day/ 72F night. You wanted money for the weather. I said no, I cannot be responsible for weather. You complained of a broken fan so we sent a new $85 tower fan, although there were still 8 other fans in the condo. Then you asked me for money. I suggested you open the windows and doors. There are two sliding glass doors, drapes, and a security screen door. You said no, someone would take your baby. We're on the 4th floor, and have locking screens. You need to open the windows if you are hot and enjoy our West Maui Mountain cooled Trade Winds. We have security and I have never even heard of a crime at VIR. I never locked you out of the condo. I would never do something like that. I had to override your code that was still working in order to give you a new code. It took 2 minutes for you to get in the condo. 90 minutes later you called your agent saying you were still locked out! We have gorgeous shower massages, rain shower, hand held shower and mosaic tile art. The bed is a brand new "Heavenly Bed". The spacious dressing room has double waterfall-designed sinks. The furniture is new. The tile is new. The carpet in the bedroom is new. Art is from real local artists. You never mentioned the TV to me, but the guest in there now doesn't have a pink stripe on the TV. I am so sorry you did not enjoy your stay at our condo. We try very hard to please our guests.

Notes:
high speed internet, heated Pool, free parking, no additional housekeeping charges, no hidden charges. Any activity (that does not involve snow) is available for you on Maui! There are more activities than any other place in the world! We have it all! Or, just have a relaxing vacation and enjoy our condo, our pool and our beach! Swim in waterfalls, hike along rivers, horseback-riding up the mountain and then along the ocean, or inside the dormant Haleakala crater! We have much art work and great stores on Front Street. Many art fairs with great stuff to look at or buy. Winery up the mountain and a lavender farm. Beautiful flower gardens to tour and golf the most beautiful courses along the ocean. Drive to Hana with a picnic lunch, there are coolers to use in the condos. Remember, it is the drive, not the destination on the road to Hana. You can't take a bad photo on Maui! Jet ski's when whales are not in season. Maui Ocean Museum is great too. Have too much fun!
