Lahaina Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

New cancellations in January 2017! View our calendar or just "book it".

Please note we accept only VISA and MasterCard.

At Lahaina Shores Beach Resort you feel miles away from the crowds, yet you can walk into the historic town of Lahaina in just five minutes. Lahaina Shores is a great place to stay if you do not want the commercialism of a big resort. It provides true Hawaiian atmosphere. Downtown Lahaina offers an astonishing array of art galleries, shopping, and dining.

A short walk along the beach is the Lahaina Boat Harbor where you can arrange any water activity imaginable. Maui has 15 championship golf courses with two located just five minutes away at Kaanapali.

From our fifth floor private balcony your ocean view is unobstructed. Sit in our new bar height patio chairs (the height lifts you above the railing for an especially beautiful and unobstructed view!) and enjoy the palm trees, the ocean, the Island of Lanai, whale watching in the winter months and the incredible Maui sunsets.

For your enjoyment, our condo includes bar height outdoor furniture, granite counters, walk in shower, Serta Perfect Sleeper king size bed, air conditioning, and a full kitchen. Also free in-room WiFi. Washers and dryers are located on each floor and were updated in 2014 so that you can use a credit card.

If you would like to view our other property at Lahaina Shores Beach Resort, go to VRBO number 48744. We have been owners at Lahaina Shores for 10 years. Please read our 'Traveler Reviews' listed there.

Why Karel & Jim Gill chose Maui

My husband and I love this location. These small studios have everything you might need on vacation. The view is breath taking and restaurants, shopping, and the boat harbor are all within walking distance.

What makes this studio unique

Our bar height furniture makes sitting on the balcony our favorite activity. Morning coffee and sunset wine have the best view in town.

Wonderful choice at Lahaina Shores

  • 5 of 5

There are a variety of accommodations at Lahaina Shores. There are several reasons to choose this unit. First, Karel and Jim are so responsive and accommodating. The views are beautiful. The kitchen and bath are very nicely redone and the granite and stone finishes are very tasteful. The television has a great picture. Beach amenities are provided. You do hear music from the luau next door which ends fairly early in the evening. It adds to the overall Hawaiian vibe. You can't go wrong staying here.

Do Yourself a favor and "experience" this Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We would or (will) rent that comfortable condo in a heart-beat owned by Jim and Karel located in Lahaina Shores Beach Resort. What a view so close to the gently pounding ocean surf that puts one to rest at night and quiets the spirit daily. The condo is super clean, fresh, light with ocean breezes floating in through giant sliders facing the beach. We found complete comfort and relaxation in our time there. That condo is a true Maui "find." Location, has it all! Friendliness from the first contact to the last.

Fabulous condo in a fabulous locaion!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned home from a wonderful 8 night vacation at Jim and Karel's property at the Lahaina Shores Beach Resort. The condo was exactly as pictured, although the view is even more stunning in person! It would be hard to get closer to the water. The owners are quick to respond if you have any questions or concerns. The condo is well equipped with everything you might need for your vacation including beach towels, beach chairs and a well appointed kitchen. We watched whales right from the lanai all week long. The condo is a short walk from the heart of Front Street in Lahaina and it was so nice to not have to worry about parking for restaurants or excursions. The resort itself is well maintained and staffed 24 hours a day witht a friendly staff. There is a concierge on site to assist with any island activity you want to do (at a discount) and you can even rent snorkel gear right there! We will absolutely stay in this unit again!

Paradise at Lahania Shores

  • 5 of 5

Had an excellent stay. It was like a home away from home. Easy to check in and easy parking for vehicle. The room consisted of a full kitchen, full bathroom, king size bed with 3 chairs and television. Had a huge closet and several drawers to store clothes. Many options for eating, either at the kitchen bar, dinette set or on the patio overlooking the ocean. Excellent ocean front view. You could hear the waves all night long. The owners Karel and Jim were very accommodating.

Nice Property

  • 4 of 5

Spent a week at this property and so enjoyed the view. We had a perfect view of the ocean and Lanai. There was a lot of boat traffic to watch and the ever amazing whale acrobatics viewing. We had a great time. Convenient parking and walking area. We have stayed at Lahaina Shores before and this was the first VRBO. Our stay was very comfortable in this unit.

Our 8th year here and this was the best unit ever with the nicest landlords

  • 5 of 5

We had a Whale of a Good Time in James and Karels unit is absolutely superb for both long and short stays. We have been here for 5 weeks and appreciate the extreme cleanliness of the unit as I have severe allergies. I was not bothered in this unit. A variety of pillows for personal pleasure to make you feel at home. One thing was lacking and when I asked about it Jim went out and purchased a new DVD player for us. The unit lacks nothing as it is fully equipped with everything we needed. For people that were displeased with the luau next door, you will be glad to know it is being revamped and moving the stages etc to face the other way and should be less noise. We enjoyed it actually. I hesitate to say too many good things about this unit (I could go on forever), but the truth is we love it and want to return ourselves and don't want to get squeezed out of our time slot - haha. Best Unit at Lahaina Shores. For those of you with concerns about smokers, we had some smokers move into an adjoining unit so we complained of the smoke and management took care of the problem as did our unit owners. They stopped smoking and I believe fined $200 but not sure.. If you ever have a problem let Jim or Karel know -- They will respond quickly and resolve any issues. They both communicate very well with lessors. Jim and Karel, Thank You for letting us use your HAWAII HOME we much appreciate it. Our stay was Nov 1 to Dec 5, 2015.
