Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-2)

Please note we accept VISA and MasterCard only.

Our OCEANFRONT studio is located right on a beautiful, sandy beach. From our third floor private balcony your ocean view is unobstructed. Sit in our new bar height patio chairs and enjoy the palm trees, the ocean, the Island of Lanai, whale watching (you can see them from the balcony in the winter) and the incredible Maui sunsets.

We did a floor to ceiling remodel in 2007 and since then have done many upgrades. Lined grasscloth curtains, new bar chairs, new dinette table, etc. With the bar height balcony furniture in place, morning coffee and sunset wine have the most fantasic view anywhere! We also have a Bose radio to enjoy plus cable and a new 32 inch flat screen TV. NEW 24/7 free wifi for all our guests.

Enjoy Lahaina Shores Beach Resort's beautifully remodeled lobby plus the sandy beach and ocean side swimming pool and spa. Washers and dryers are located on each floor and in 2014 new washers and dryers were installed that take credit cards or quarters.

Walking into the historic town of Lahaina takes two minutes and yet you feel miles away from anyone at the resort. 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.

Located right next door to Lahaina Shores is a charming, small shopping center with one of Lahaina's best rated restaurants plus the Feast of Lele luau and they both have the same amazing view you get from our condo. There are many shops and a convenience store, plus the newly remodeled Betty's for casual breakfast, lunch and dinner. Sign up for surfing lessons right next door too!

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.

Check the availablity calendar and contact me with any questions or to reserve dates either by phone or email.

If my calendar is full on the dates you need, please check our newest listing at Lahaina Shores Beach Resort, VRBO number 380129. We have been owners at Lahaina Shores Beach Resort for over 10 years.

About Karel & Jim Gill

We live in California and love Maui and especially Lahaina Shores Beach Resort. We never want to stay in other properties. We never get tired of the view. It is beautiful.

Karel & Jim Gill purchased this condo in 2004

Why Karel & Jim Gill chose Maui

Quiet, low key, great location, full kitchen, nothing between the ocean and our balcony. Location Location Location.

What makes this condo unique

The location and the balcony. We spend most of our time sitting in the bar height chairs watching the ocean, sunsets, paddle boarders, paddle boarders with dogs, cruise ships, whales. Go to the kitchen for a cup of coffee or the refrigerator for something cold to drink and a snack. Walking into town for meals is always fun too. It is REALLY relaxing!

Guestbook comments from the owner


I just wanted to tell you that we had a great time on our vacation this past

Christmas! We loved the room, the chairs outside were a GREAT idea, loved

sitting out there and drinking coffee in the morning, people watching, and

great view of the sunsets without having to look though the railing! NICE

TOUCH! Loved the bed! Very comfy, especially after a long day of diving, and

sightseeing, and shopping! New Years Eve was great, had a free fireworks

show on the beach right in front of us! Again we really liked the style! The

tile, the fixtures, the glass doors in the bathroom it was Very Nice! Thanks

again and hope to return soon!

Excellent View and Location - Unit was perfect

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as advertised. Close to tons of stuff to do (Old Lahaina) and a beautiful view. The layout is good for two people, but storage space is at a premium. Pack light! The washer and dryer was just down the hall, took credit cards and worked great.

There were a couple of beach chairs and towels in the unit. We donated a beach umbrella when we left.

I would recommend this to any couple planning on going to Maui.

Everything we could ask for!

  • 5 of 5

The Studio unit is beautifully renovated. The front desk was very helpful and friendly. So many reviews have already given the details. The kitchen area is beautifully appointed. The view from the lanai was amazing. The bed was comfy! Internet reliable, room was very quite. We had some great meals at Pacific O next door. Betty's, meh. Spanky's for Sunday morning Seahawks was fun (except they lost). We also loved being able to park the car and walk to Front St, Lahaina. We even walked to the Harbor to catch our snorkel trip. Whales were everywhere! We hate to say Aloha, but we'll be back.

Excellent Condo and Location

  • 5 of 5

This place was great. Looks like the review just before mine did a great job describing the condo, the building, and the parking. I do want to expand on that parking a bit. The cost is awesome for Maui. The place we stayed at before was approximately $20/day so don't forget to consider this when comparing Lahaina locations.

We'll be back in Maui again and hope this unit is available for our next trip! Speaking of which, if you do find this unit is sold out during your stay then be sure to take a look at Karel's other offering at Lahaina Shores. I have not actually stayed there but must assume it is just as well kept as this one.

An Awesome Unit

  • 5 of 5

I just spent eight days at this nicely updated unit and I can honestly say that it is awesome. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, cookware and coffee maker as well as full size refrigerator, range, microwave and dishwasher. All of the furniture was in excellent condition and the flat screen TV was great. There’s even a Bose radio next to the bed. The free Wi-Fi worked extremely well which was important since I keep in touch with friends around the world online. They were all a bit jealous when I shared photos and videos of Lahaina Shores with them during my stay. The air conditioner kept a very constant temperature and wasn’t too loud. In fact the condo unit was very quiet. I never heard the neighbors through the walls during my entire stay even though they had a small baby. But the sound of the surf when the door to the balcony was open was fantastic. The balcony with the bar height chairs and table is the perfect location for your morning coffee and the sunsets over the island of Lanai will blow you away. Karel and Jim have done an outstanding job of making their beautiful unit comfortable for guests and they provide detailed information about the unit when you make your reservation. They're very prompt at responding to your correspondence with them. And their housekeeper, Candy, does an awesome job of making sure that the unit is meticulous when you arrive. The front desk personnel are extremely friendly and helpful so check-in is very easy. Parking is available for only $3.70 per day, paid for at the front desk. The lobby area is very nice and always spotless, the landscaping is manicured and the swimming pool and spa are well maintained but never crowded. The beach also was never crowded and a great place to take a walk. There are many great restaurants, bars and shops on Front Street within a very easy walk. Spanky’s Riptide next door was a fun place to watch football on Sunday. If you’re considering a sunset cruise, a snorkeling charter or a whale watching trip out of Lahaina I would highly recommend the Santa Cruz 50 sailboat named “Scotch Mist II” as an alternative to the big catamarans. All of the crew members are very experienced sailors and a lot of fun. I can’t thank Karel and Jim enough for making their little piece of paradise at Lahaina Shores available to us. I’ll definitely return.

Great location and great condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a nicely renovated condo in a great location on Maui!!!! You have beautiful views from your lanai to the ocean and sunsets. You are in walking distance to amazing restaurants in Lahaina (my favorite Lahaina Grill) and short drive from great snorkeling in Napili Beach, Kapalua, Honolulu, and the many beautiful beaches of Kaanapali. The condo is fairly central on the island to other attractions like road to Hana, views from Haleakala , and the Waihee ridge trail.

The owners are easy to communicate with and very accommodating. I would definitely recommend staying here!!!!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for just the two of us on a private vacation together. The space was perfect for us, so convenient to Lahaina and all the shopping and restaurants available there. The pool and grounds were well kept and clean - very enjoyable. Access to the beach was easy but the property was secure which was a plus. Parking spaces are quite small so large vehicles will have a hard time parking. There was nothing more relaxing than sitting on our balcony and enjoying the sunset and beautiful views. The owner was very helpful prior to our stay providing us important details to get checked in and also information about amenities and things to do in Maui. We had a very good experience with the concierge and received very helpful information on booking tours and activities while on the island. We recommend it highly and would love to come back again.
