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.

There are only (4) Oceanside Penthouse apartments at Lahaina Shores, and this is the only renovated apartment presently available for rent.

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.

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 Lahaina

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!

Beautiful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Very nice location, convenient to walking anywhere in downtown Lahaina. Beautiful view from the Lanai and well appointed kitchen makes staying in and enjoying private meals and beverages a perfect relaxing stay.

Premier Property and Location

  • 5 of 5

If you want to enjoy Lahaina, this condo is in a perfect location. Easy to walk to town for dinner at a different restaurant every night. The property is very well maintained. David was very responsive when I had an issue with the WiFi. It is nice to stay in a vacation rental (which we do often) that makes one feel at home. Rare to experience are the dishes, glasses and cookware. They match rather than looking like the owner bought them at a flea market. Very nice. The telescope was a nice touch. Glad though, that we brought our own binoculars to watch the whales. Yes, the waterfront view is spectacular. We never stay at the same place. But... we will stay here again.

Perfect location, Penthouse 705 was fabulous, Lahaina Shores overall was great as well.

  • 5 of 5

The Penthouse was fabulous. The owner was very friendly and proactively informative. The layout, the upscale amenities and the lanai had everything you needed and were more than expected, and the view was beautiful! The most amazing sunsets...and breaching whales could be seen from the lanai. The complex was not overcrowded, never had any trouble getting lounge chairs in the pool area. The pool and hot tub always clean an not crowded as well. The beach was nice and never crowded. The staff was friendly and concierge was very helpful in setting up any activities. Parking was convenient. Many shops and restaurants in walking distance and the complex was central to all other activities, grocery stores, etc...Traffic and other parking was never an issue. The snorkeling was amazing! Overall a great experience, the location was quite private, unlike larger overcrowded resort hotels, yet a short walk to much activity. We are planning on a return visit.

Amazing and comfortable with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience staying in this penthouse! Parking was super convenient and the front desk staff at Lahaina Shores are extremely efficient and pleasant. The view from this unit is STUPENDOUS! We watched beautiful sunsets every night from the large balcony. the kitchen was fully equipped with everything you could possibly need - I am sure a huge Thanksgiving dinner could be prepared with all the equipment and implements! The refrigerator kept everything really ice cold. Washer and dryer worked great. Many condo units in Hawaii have washers and dryers (especially dryers) that are very very slow. Not so with these. Bed was amazingly comfortable with really high quality bedding and pillows. I really liked the convenience of being able to walk into the town of Lahaina rather than struggle to find expensive parking. Pool and hot tub always kept very clean and inviting. We had a wonderful stay and hope to stay again in the future.

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.

Other Activities: Wildlife Viewing, Basketball Court, Boating, Shopping, Kayaking, Parasailing
