About the property

1 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms, Convertible bed, Sleeps 4, Huge Lanai

Lahaina Shores Beach Resort’s location in Maui is unique - the only vacation condo rentals in Lahaina, Maui that are right on the beach. Set on the oceanfront of Lahaina Town in West Maui along historic Front Street where Hawaiian Royalty (the Lahaina Shores property was purchased from one of King Kamehameha's descendants) and Yankee adventurers once strolled, stands the only beachfront condo resort in Lahaina, Hawaii - a quietly elegant oasis in an unbeatable location. Pass through arched colonnades into an airy lobby, opening into the sea, and you’re struck by her old-fashioned charm. Here is a plantation style Maui resort, echoing a time when comfort and style were king.

Your Penthouse apartment, located on the top floor, awaits, complete with a full kitchen, and a huge private lanai overlooking the blue Pacific. The sunsets become a daily appointment. During winter, you can easily see whales breaching from your perch. Year round, be serenaded by the ocean breaking on the reef.

This is the perfect place for a honeymoon, romantic getaway, or as an oasis of calm. If you love Maui, this is the best place to enjoy all that Maui has to offer.

The Penthouse has been completely renovated will all new furniture, cabinets, appliances, electronics and fixtures.

One complete glass wall, visible from every room, showcases the beautiful blue Pacific beyond, with views of the islands of Kahoolawe, Lanai, and Molokai. Sliding doors from the living room and bedroom lead to the huge, private lanai. The level of privacy afforded is difficult to describe, yet so easy to enjoy.

The living room sports a queen sized sofa bed, a 52' HD Sony Bravia LED-LCD television, Sony BluRay DVD player, and a small Sony stereo system.

In the bedroom, you'll find a 32' Samsung LCD TV and a king sized bed. Wireless internet service is included and it is always on high speed cable access. Everything you need is at your fingertips.

In the dining area, you will find a mahogany dining room set, as well as a small desk should you need to write some post cards for the people back home who are missing the beautiful sunsets you are enjoying.

The kitchen, with solid maple cabinets, granite countertops, dishwasher, disposal, convection oven, microwave, and a refrigerator with an icemaker, is ready to showcase your culinary skills. You will also find a wide array of bar glassware for your cocktail creations.

The Penthouse has two bathrooms, one with a walk-in shower, and the master bath has a deep, relaxing tub. Both have watersense toilets and LED lighting to be more environmentally responsible. The in-unit washer/dryer is small, but oh so convenient!

For lots of additional pictures, please visit our website displayed elsewhere in this listing. VRBO will not let me put a link here.

We use an on island management company that is responsible for all paperwork, cleaning and maintenance. This gives you an on island contact should you need anything urgently, as well as a reputable company to handle the finances.

Please understand that this is a renovated, well-appointed Penthouse apartment. There are only (4) Oceanside Penthouse apartments at Lahaina Shores, and this is the only renovated apartment presently available for rent. If you cannot find the dates you want, please check our our other listing vrbo #580725

If the price is just too much, but you are still looking for fine amenities and extra space, then I would highly recommend listing #103392. I have been inside this mountain view unit several times, and it is gorgeous. If you are all about the ocean view, then I would recommend considering an oceanside studio. We have visited with the owner of listing #334716 and it is very well appointed.

It you demand all the amenities, the extra space, *and* the best view on Maui, then you have come to the right place. Penthouse #5. Book today!

About The Owner

My wife and I presently live in Arlington, Texas, that is, when we cannot be in Maui. We operate small businesses, and understand the importance of customer service and exceeding expectations. We will not disappoint.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2010

Why The Owner chose Maui

Several years ago, I was on a cruise in Hawaii and one of the ports was Lahania. I really enjoyed the quaint little town and saw Lahaina Shores Beach Resort for the first time. I decided right then that if I was able to return, *that* was where I'd stay. We started visiting Maui around 2006, and we used VRBO to to find a nice condo at Lahaina Shores. We stayed with the same unit for five visits over the years and loved every minute of it. Then, we decided to engage a realtor to help us find a condo of our own. We had previously looked in Kihei, and the realtor took us to see places in Kaanapali, but there just is nothing like being an easy walk from Lahaina Town.

What makes this condo unique

This is a Penthouse apartment, so it comes with everything including a door bell! The lanai is HUGE, and the view is STUNNING. There are only four Oceanside Penthouse apartments at Lahaina Shores, and this is the only renovated apartment presently available for rent. It is tastefully decorated and furnished with your comfort and enjoyment in mind including unexpected perks like free wireless internet, a 52' HD Sony Bravia LED-LCD television, Sony BluRay DVD player, Time Warner HD DVR, and a small Sony stereo system that includes a CD player and an iPod docking station. Very few apartments offer HD service, and this is the only one that has an HD DVR for guest use. The renovation was done with our fragile environment in mind and includes water saving fixtures, EnergyStar appliances, and LED lighting. This is your Hawaiian home away from home! Enjoy!

Lahaina Shores Oceanfront Penthouse, Huge Lanai, Gorgeous!!
average rating of 4.9722223 based on 83 reviews


  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a glorious week at Penthouse 5. It exceeded all expectations - extremely comfortable and well stocked, gorgeous views and the best location in Maui! The kitchen was remarkable...if excellent restaurants weren't so close by you could be tempted to throw a gourmet meal party. We've been traveling across the US and Europe for many years, and I've never seen a kitchen so thoughtfully and thoroughly stocked. Proximity to the lovely beach couldn't be better, and the Penthouse is loaded with water toys (boogie boards, beach chairs and towels, etc.). We are ready to book the Penthouse next year! No one will be disappointed in this gem.

Wonderful again

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Penthouse 5 and we enjoyed it tremendously. It is beautifully decorated and very well maintained. We absolutely loved hearing and seeing the ocean. There is enough beach out in front for a small walk and we discovered a great restaurant in the complex next door. We were only there for 3 nights and managed to whale watch and take a snorkeling trip right out of Lahaina. I would recommend this Penthouse to anyone.

Ultimate vacation experience

  • 5 of 5

This was the most amazing vacation we have had. We needed a place to be able to unwind and relax, we got it! Being able to watch whales breaching from our room was amazing. The sunsets and sunrises were magical. I cannot say enough about this accommodation. The cleanliness was excellent, the property amenities were wonderful and such a great location. You basically have your own private beach and only a short walk to all other amenities. Our car stayed parked the whole trip. We will be back!!!!!

Location and View A+

  • 5 of 5

We found the room to be great for our needs. I was not so comfortable on the sofa bed, but the condo's queen in the bedroom was very soft, and it was so nice sleeping next to the open windows with the sounds of the ocean right in your ears.

Owner's Response: Aloha Jamie, Thank you so much for your review and we are delighted that you found everything you needed. Just for clarity, the bed in the bedroom is a california king, so slightly narrower and slightly longer than a traditional king. We have had others comment on how super comfortable it is as well. Also, for the sofa bed, we did replace the standard sofa bed mattress with a thicker memory foam mattress, and we padded all of the supports but, alas, it remains a sofa bed. We keep looking for a better option there! Thanks again for being our guests, and for taking the time to write a review. I genuinely appreciate it. -David

Christmas in Maui was wonderful! Our stay at your penthouse was enjoyable comfortable and just perfect. The view was impeccable and standing on the huge lanai staring out at the ocean and other islands was awesome! Everything we needed to feel at home was provided for us in this condo. We highly recommend this place for anybody wanting the perfect vacation!

Best Ocean View In Lahaina

  • 5 of 5

We had the best vacation with the best view of the ocean! While the inside of the penthouse is very comfortable and well provisioned, we spent most of our time on the lanai. An easy 10 to 15 minute walk took us to a choice of many restaurants and places to shop. We loved our stay and will be back!

Great location within an easy 5 minute walking distance of all that Lahaina Town has to offer with great choices of restaurants, pubs, and plenty of shopping, yet still far enough away for when you really just want peace and quite. Even whale watching excursions, snorkeling adventures, and dinner cruises leave just down the beach from the harbor.

Right next door, enjoy the Shops at 505, which includes boutiques, excellent restaurants, pubs, and a great upscale luau, the Feast at Lele.

This is truly the best place from which to enjoy all that Maui has to offer.
