About Lori Dunnell

My first visit to Hawaii was in 1986. I knew I wanted to come back, and someday live there. As I raised my children, my thoughts were to raise them on Maui, knowing that the education about the world they would receive would be far more than just books.

As life would have it, that was not the case. I kept coming back, every trip I tool was better than the last. I knew I would return...and someday have a home.

Life continued to show up for me and I never gave up my dream. Although I am still living on the mainland, I finally bought this condo, and after 26 years, was that much closer to my dream. I live in California, so happy that I can see the ocean, knowing that my next trip to Maui, someday, will be one way.....

Lori Dunnell purchased this condo in 2012

Why Lori Dunnell chose Maui

I looked at properties on Maui for several years. I made one offer in 2006, and it was not accepted. I kept looking. Every time I was in Kihei, I would walk the length of south Kihei picking which complex I wanted to be in. I never realized Shores of Maui was a complex that was NOT fully owner occupied. It looked so unassuming, more like an apartment building than like the other condo complexes. After a week of looking in March of 2012, our last stop was Shores of Maui #202. I spent 30 minutes inside, 25 of them on the balcony. I knew. It took me until my plane landed back on the mainland to call and start the ball rolling to buy this unit. I never looked back and look forward to sharing my view with you!

What makes this condo unique

This unit is lovely inside, however it's crown is the view. Whether it is raining, (less likely on the south side of the island) or the trades are blowing, (highly likely at some point of every given day) the view from this unit is spectacular. Any time of day or night, sun rise, sun set, moon rise, moon set. The high ceilings make the unit spacious, the sound of the waves, divine.

We are constantly making changes and upgrades. It only gets better and better. Come enjoy a paradise away from home.

There is no better location...

  • 5 of 5

A quick trip to Costco after landing, filled our beautiful kitchen with all of the food that we needed for the 5 days spent in this beautiful condo! Location! BAR NONE, the best in Kihei! The whales had migrated already by the time we arrived, but the surfers, boarders and sailors were all present to watch with our morning coffee on the lanai. Yoga in the park directly in front of the condo was spectacular, and breath taking while in Sukhasana. We visited Kamaole and Makena Beaches... Makena is stunningly beautiful and worth the ride in the car to find... The Road to Hana is an adventure, and I would recommend a small car and some anti nausea. We were six women in a van... meeting other vehicles on the single lane turns was slightly unnerving. Lahaina is a must day trip... great little boutiques and shopping opportunities. Bubba Gump's was a delicious lunch choice for all. Pool area is excellent, with a library at its entrance, filled with books and magazines for your reading pleasure!

This condo is SO well equipped with all that you need in the kitchen, as well as all that you need to play in the water. The two rooms are at opposite ends of the condo with each, their own bathroom, making it a great location for a girls trip, or two separate families. I will most certainly be re-booking this condo, even if it is just for myself and my husband! You can not find a better location in Kihei!

AWESOME!!

  • 5 of 5

Don't know where to begin!! This condo was awesome! ! The view was everything it was promised to be!! Waking up every morning to surfers and paddle boarders in the cove right across the street was unbelievable!! Condo was very very clean, kitchen was stocked with everything you will ever need, plenty of bath towels, beach towels, beach umbrellas, beach chairs, snorkeling gear and even toys for the kiddos to play in the sand with!!

The condo is located perfectly on S. Kihei Road. It's within walking distance of beaches, shopping, restaurants and bars!! The pool area is also very nice and very well kept!! There is no way you can go wrong with renting this condo!! Lori was excellent to work with - answered any questions we had very quickly! ! :)

We would definitely stay here again!! :)

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Mahalo! The condo was everything we expected! It was clean, convenient to everything, beach across the street, QUIET (big plus!). We loved it! We got to know some locals, who were more than helpful with suggestions and recomendations. We became 'regulars' at Fred's Mexican restaurant, just a few blocks down on the left. Ask for Todd, he was a top notch waiter! Everything is good! We shopped quite a bit at the Farmers Markets, for fresh fruits and veges. There is one next to Sugar Beach bakery, check it out and grab some delicious sweets from the bakery while you're there! You'll find some local wears at the bracelet store as well, it's 2 doors from the bakery. The open air markets are cool to check out for tees and trinkets, be sure to grab a Red Dirt Shirt! Check out Maui Ocean Arts, all things made by locals, I purchased a Koa fish hook necklace for my son, he loved it! Maui fish & chips has delicious Ono, check it out! All this is located right on S. Kihei Rd. We frequented Times Market, selection was greater and fresher than Foodland. Also on S. Kihei Rd. So convenient! When you take the road to Hana, stop by Charleys Restaurant and Saloon located in Paia, awesome Sushi, ribs and Ceviche!! Check out all the beaches along the way, the waves were spectaculer and the water blue and clear!! Baldwin beach, Hookipa and be sure to hit Black sand beach, amazing! Careful on the road to Hana, locals know the road well! Take your time! Need snorkel gear, want to take in some whale watching or a Luau? Boss Frogs got it! Fair and friendly, next to Maui fish & chips. We went to the Te Au Moana luau located at Wailea Beach Marriott Resort and Spa, delicious, amazing and so much fun! Snorkel at Molokini, it won't disappoint! I could go on and on, however...My last suggestion is, Gannons Restaurant, outstanding cuisine and if you want to get married there... Wailea Golf Club and Gannons caters. My sons wedding was held here and it was the most beautiful I've ever seen, overlooking the Pacific ocean! Every local is friendly, just say Aloha and you've got a new friend! We had the best time in Maui and hope to bisit the condo in Maui again.....soon!

It was better than expected !

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Shores of Maui ! It was the best unit in the complex with magnificent views ! We were a large group of 11 spread out in four condos but most of the time everyone hung out in our condo because it was so comfortable ! We would definitely stay there again !

Beautiful view, great location, lovely owner to work with!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third visit to Hawaii, and this place is by far my favorite to stay in.

We loved the view from the lanai, and the small cove across the way was a lovely, shallow and calm area for the kids to play in. We had four kids ages 5 - 13 with us. They were all able to safely snorkel and boogie board all the way to the little island in the cove. (Just watch out for spiky sea urchins) The front closet was full of snorkel sets, boogie boards, sand toys, coolers, beach umbrellas and other supplies to make it fun to hit the beach.

The location in Kihei is great. We loved being able to walk to our favorite restaurant (the Pa'ia Fish House), and if you're looking to learn to surf or paddle board, this is the absolute place to be. Each morning we got to watch groups of people from the nearby surf and SUP schools converge onto the beach. If you fall, the water is shallow enough to stand up in, so it's great for beginners! The classes are only in the morning (while we're eating breakfast and easing into the beautiful day), so we often have the beach almost to ourselves later in the afternoon after doing some exploring of the rest of the island.

The kitchen is fully equipped and even had a stock of spices, teas, and everyday items that would otherwise be pricey and wasteful to purchase for a short stay. The appliances were all in great working condition, and we were happy to have the ice-maker in the freezer.

There is a massive stock of towels - you'll definitely have enough for the whole family - beach, pool and all! The washer and dryer were a great size, and stocked with detergent and dryer sheets.

We appreciated all the thoughtful touches Lori left for us - coupons, a binder of restaurants and activities, books, magazines (really fantastic local ones!). It made you feel welcome right away.

Lori was a pleasure to communicate with, responding to my emails right away, and being as accommodating as she could with our time of arrival and departure.

My sister and nephews from Singapore loved the place too, and we kept wishing we had booked more time here instead of first spending a week in Oahu.

Thanks so much for a terrific home away from home!

An amazing condo with a view to die for. The condo was well kept and stocked with everything you would need for your stay. Walking distance to the beach, restaurants and shopping. Couldn't have imagined a better place to stay on vacation. Will definitely look in to staying here on my next visit.
