Overview

Lahaina Condo Rental Photos and Description

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!

We accept checks, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and PayPal. Please check our our calendar before contacting us to insure the dates you are interested in are available. We are diligently keeping the online calendar up-to-date.

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Lanais was amazing. We sat out here daily. We enjoyed Maui, the sunsets, the water, the people ... it was all amazing. We did the Road to Hana twice, climbed the mountain, saw the waterfalls, swam in the pools. Loved to wake to the sound of the waves.



Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Lahaina Shores Penthouse 5 is Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this place. The owner descriptions are 100% accurate. In our opinion the very best part of Penthouse 5 is the incredible balcony. Clear views of the Island of Lanai as well as the Lahaina harbor just down the beach. That patio is absolutely huge, the largest patio we have enjoyed while renting home/condos from VRBO. We have rented numerous homes & condos over the years in Hawaii and Bodega Bay and always the main complaint is while relaxing watching the surf the furniture sits with eye level just at the railing level. This patio has 3 separate sets of patio furniture, our favorite was the pub table set. The pub table made watching the 4th of July fireworks show the best seat in all Lahaina. We were able to watch the surfers every morning with our coffee and each evening with dinner. Another thing about Lahaina Shores is they are practically attached to a shopping center that has 3 top notch restaurants with private access to the center. Having private covered parking is another huge advantage to staying at Lahaina Shores, as finding a parking spot in Lahaina is difficult. Penthouse 5 has a great kitchen to cook nearly anything you want, we suggest getting a couple crabs from Costco and enjoy eating them on the patio.....we did twice. Having the washer and dryer in the condo was another big bonus for us as everyone else staying at Lahaina Shores would have to take everything down to floor 6 and hope the facilities weren't being used. The Penthouse has boogie boards and beach chairs to use which we found the chairs to be highly valuable while at Big Beach in Makena.

This was our 4th trip to Maui and each time gets better and better. All in all we had an amazing time while staying at Lahaina Shores Penthouse 5 and we will be back!

Simply Spectacular!!!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing views! Great location! Lanai beyond compare! Spacious and gorgeous! Clean and modern, with all the amenities you could ever need. Super-comfy master bed! This was by far the best condo that we stayed in while on our multi-island trip!

Amazing View!

  • 5 of 5

The penthouse was just as described by the owner. The huge lenai stretches from the bedroom all the way to the living room and has an amazing view of the ocean. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need. The washer and dryer are convenient to have in the unit. The location is perfect. You can walk everywhere and don't need a car, unless you want to travel around the island. It was hastle-free checking in and out. Very peaceful and enjoyable visit.

Amazing property right at the edge of Lahaina

  • 5 of 5

We arrived Easter Sunday 2016 for 6 nights. Check in was great, just like checking into a hotel. None of the hassles we have had with some other VRBO properties (getting keys from rental companies, property not clean, etc). The property was everything described on other reviews and by the owner. An entire wall of glass facing the ocean on the 7th floor, with granite and stainless steel throughout. Five star amenities. We slept with the glass slider cracked open, falling asleep and waking up to the sound of waves. Each morning we would have coffee on the balcony, watching whales go by. We like to rent properties right by a downtown area, so we can walk to shopping and restaurants if we want. There is a luau right next door. It is at the south edge of town, so it is quiet overlooking the beach and on the property (unlike much of Kaanapali), but the action of town is just a few steps away. If you like luxury levels amenities, in a smaller boutique type hotel, you will not be disappointed.

Perfect Vacation at Lahaina Shores Penthouse 5

  • 5 of 5

Before booking our vacation, I read hundreds of reviews of different properties in Maui. We decided on Lahaina Shores Penthouse 5 based on its reviews and the information on the owner's website which included lots of photographs. My husband and I just returned home after 5 days in Penthouse 5 and everything was PERFECT. The Lahaina Shores property is incredible. The lobby is open and spacious and they have an Expedia Concierge available to help with sightseeing. When we opened the door to Penthouse 5, we were both amazed at the view of the water and the island of Lanai in the distance. We spent hours watching the boats and we were able to see whales by using the binoculars which were in the desk. The king size bed was extremely comfortable and the kitchen was equipped with everything we could possible imagine. The living room/dining room is beautifully decorated and comfortable for relaxing. There is also a washer and dryer in the hallway closet and a variety of beach items for guests to use. If we come back to Maui we will definitely stay here again and we are already recommending it to our friends who are planning their vacations. We were able to walk to the Lahaina Harbor as well as to restaurants and shopping on Front Street in less than 5 minutes. This was a big plus because we didn't have to worry about parking. The drive from the airport is less than an hour and the highway is along the coast with beautiful views of the water and the mountains. Thank you for a vacation we will never forget.

Car: not necessary

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
