About Richard

We live in Southern California and work in real estate and property management. Our kids are growing up and we are looking forward to enjoying Lahaina more often!

Richard purchased this condo in 2008

Why Richard chose Maui

We first visited Lahaina in 2006 and stayed in a first floor one-bedroom unit with our kids. We loved it so much, we booked another trip about 6 months later, and we were hooked. When this Oceanfront unit came on the market, we made an offer immediately and I flew out to close the deal. We spent the next 90 days having it remodeled (a very close friend/contractor lived in Napili at the time and he oversaw the gutting and remaking of our unit.) Many of the other units in the building have been modeled after our unit, but none have the personal charm and decor that my wife has put into our condo and home away from home!

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with the location of the condo. Beachfront and ocean facing. At night we leave the sliding glass doors open and fall asleep to the crashing waves. Every morning we take 30-minute walk along the beach, going as far as we can east toward the million-dollar homes on the beach, and then turn around and walk all the way to the Port of Lahaina and watch the young surfers taking their lessons along the way. We snorkel right off of the beach in front of the building on days we don't want to drive to Kapalua or take a boat out to Molokini Island and Turtle Bay.

(Update March 2016-The heavy storms this winter took a toll on the Lahaina Port area which caused erosion along the beach next to the Port. We were not able to walk all the way to the boats, etc., along the beach. We had to cut through the park and walk along Front Street. We feel bad for the homes next to the port, they lost their beach.

Notes:
Next door at 505 Front Street you can enjoy The Feast at Lele music from the condo's Lanai. Enjoy a more 'Americanized' luau in Kaanapali because the food served at The Feast of Lele is very authentic and our kids don't like it (neither do I, only my wife likes it, but don't tell her that!) There is massage therapy at 505 Front Street, Mina Moghadam. You don't want to miss an opportunity for her Lomi Lomi massage! 808-205-7751, but book early! We walk to Old Towne Lahaina, the Banyon Tree park, shopping, restaurants and most everything we do. We do get a car because I hate waiting for taxis and shuttles, plus we have a routine once we land. Get the car, stop at K-Mart for dry foods, sun screen, bathroom products, etc., and then go the condo and unpack. We then hop back in the car and head to Safeway (on the west end of Lahaina about 7 mins by car) and load up on perishables, etc. If it's early enough, I get a coffee at Starbucks too.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Unit 321 was just beautiful. I felt like I was stepping right into the photos. Kitchen, bedroom , bathroom were lovely and decorated so nicely. The unit had everything we need , appliances, beach chairs ,coolers etc. even binoculars and some noodles for the pool The view from the Lanai was to die for..unit was in the perfect location on the property. We enjoyed the chairs on the lawn fronting the beach. Pool was nice also. It was only a few blocks from Lahaina town with lots of shopping and eating choices. 505 front street shops next door were very handy, there is a Whalers general store where we picked up waters etc

and we enjoyed both Betty's beach cafe and Pacifico restaurant.

Richard and Shelly were wonderful to deal with, always answering my email right away and they were so patient with all my questions over the past year.

I hope to return to Maui next year and stay longer and I will stay at Lahaina Shores unit 321p

Vacationing in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The moment you step through the door of this lovely condo you are greeted with the expansive view of palm trees and gorgeous ocean! What more do you need? My husband and I started every morning on the lanai with coffee, just watching the waves, runners and walkers, and even a monk seal who decided our beach was the perfect spot for a nap on two different days. The condo was lovely, with a fully stocked kitchen with anything you would need for cooking (although I must admit I didn't do much cooking), linens, laundry facility ten seconds from the front door, beautiful lobby, lots of lawn chairs for sunbathing and a beautiful swimming pool. The location is great - since you're on Front Street, we walked almost everywhere. Lots of shops, restaurants and bars so close. The only time we needed our car was to drive to the grocery store. Prior to our visit, I had questions, and every time I e-mailed Richard he got back to me quickly and answered all my questions. Would we go back? In a heartbeat! Loved this place. So glad we chose it.

Perfect in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Lahaina Shores Beach Resort is the best place to stay. We stayed in #321 and it was absolutely awesome. It was far up enough to have privacy and had a great view. You do hear the luau next door each night, but #321 is far enough away so it didn't bother us, because actually, with the sound of the waves, it makes the luau drums quieter. Every single person we ran into who worked at Lahaina Shores Beach Resort were extremely friendly, and addressed us. The people at the front desk went out of their way to be helpful, friendly and answer questions. In fact, it was the best check-in process we ever experienced. The gentleman at the desk carefully went over everything we needed during our stay which was extremely helpful. The resort is a short walk (well, the restaurants/bars start right next door) to Lahaina which is packed with shops, restaurants, bars. You never need a car to go to dinner there are so many good places to eat. The beach out front is a soft sand beach. Just big enough to be a nice walk and never crowded. The resort was also extremely clean. Bed was comfortable. Kitchen was stocked with just enough items we needed. In #321 there were beach chairs - you can't bring the resort chairs to the beach. I would definitely, absolutely, stay at Lahaina Shores Beach Resort upon my return to Maui. And if you ever have to deal with Richard, who owns #321, do not hesitate. He is extremely prompt in answering any questions. We also had one minor thing, the diverter on our shower didn't work, so he sent someone right away and it was quickly fixed. It was a simple problem with a simple fix, but without a shower it kind of puts a damper on things - but as I said previously, Richard had it fixed immediately. Again, and I cannot stress it enough, stay here for your Maui vacation!

Ocean sounds

  • 5 of 5

Sleeping with the sounds of the ocean, eating breakfast and drinking coffee while spotting whales make this an amazing place to stay. Snorkeling just off shore was a nice late morning activity as well. The location makes it very easy to get to the highway and get to other parts of the island or make a quick walk to town. It felt a bit more like a hotel than we expected but it wasn't to much to be off-putting. I also agree with another review that the decor is in need of being replaced/updated ASAP but this is no reason not to stay here. We would stay again if we make it back to Maui! Thanks for opening your vacation home to us.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We had spent the first 3 days of our time in Maui in the rain forest. We were ready for some action. You DO Lahaina. The apartment was perfect. We had everything we needed and the view was wonderful. Looking out over a stunning beach with nice surf. You can park here at the condo and never have to get in your vehicle the whole time. We did a rafting tour (Steve's) and Warren & Annabelle's is a must do. I can't say enough about what a great time we had. Mahalo to the owners for making their unit available, we had a great great time. Thank you sooo much. I can't recommend this unit enough. You will not be disappointed.
