Our Hotel, Lahaina Shores Beachfront Resort, is open for guests after a lovely remodel. Please come and feel the Aloha! This is, after all, the only beach front hotel location in the town of Lahaina itself. It's perfect for the traveller who gets to Maui and doesn't want to travel any more! Walk to almost everything.

Room #224," Lani Moana, Heaven by the Ocean", is located on the second floor, features stunning views of the West Maui Mountains and reflects a modern plantation decor. There is a 24 hour front desk where you check in, receive your key card, and check out when your stay is over. There is a concierge who can assist you with booking recreational activities.

Lahaina, also called West Side, has the best weather Maui has to offer. The average day here is sunny, clear and about 82 degrees. Two miles north in Ka'anapali, there is twice as much rainfall. Four miles from here in Honokawai, it rains almost every day. Eight miles from Lahaina in Kapalua, it often rains multiple times a day, on average four times the rainfall of Lahaina town. Make Lahaina your tropical destination. You'll be glad you did!

The unit #224, the one I own, is air conditioned and has an adjustable thermostat, 47 inch flat screen, king size 'Heavenly' bed, and a beautiful lanai, (balcony) with a breakfast table and chairs. The kitchen is equipped with a full sized refrigerator, as well as a new ceramic cooktop stove with matching microwave. All cooking utensils and silverware are included, as well as a blender, toaster, and coffee maker. Four seats are available for dining inside, two at the bar and two at the dining table.

The unit was recently renovated with new artistic tile insets and beautiful granite countertops in the kitchen and bathroom. We installed a large walk in shower with granite turtle insets and a glass wall.

Save by eating in for breakfast, and enjoy an amazing number of dining choices for "dining out" within easy walking distance. Directly next door through a tropical passthrough is Betty's Beach Cafe, a direct waterfront eatery that offers a nice, inexpensive breakfast till' 2:00 P.M. Close to Betty's, is Spanky's Riptide, a friendly sports bar. Another twenty steps leads you to two, four star restaurants on the beach, including Pacific-O that features amazing fish entrees. My wife and I like Lahaina Fish Co. for ribs and fries. If you head South,try Nalu's in Kihei for the same great local choices. For cheap, try #One Barbeque on Wainee St. and Prison Pizza on Prison St.

Don't miss Harry Troupe on guitar on Wednesday's and Friday's at Cheeseburger's on Front Street. Catch the Hawaiian blessing at Fleetwoods on the rooftop at sunset. Rent a Harley on Front Street. Go on the Atlantis Submarine and descend 130 feet and see a really cool wrecked ship. it's all good fun! The harbor is just a few blocks from the hotel.

Resort amenities include, but are not limited to, a large, spacious lobby, a lush oceanfront private oasis, including beautiful pool and Jacuzzi. There is easy beach access less than fifty feet from the lobby. Off-street reserved parking is available ($3.50 per day) and you'll be enjoying very convenient access to Front Street Lahaina shops, restaurants, activities, theater, and live music.. You're certain to leave with a lifetime of memories. I am local, please do not be afraid to contact me for any further needs 8 A.M. to midnight, Hawaiian time. I usually try to provide beach towels, beach chairs, and boogie boards. There is often snorkel gear available in the unit. Sorry, No Graduation Parties. The Primary registering guest must have a valid credit card and be 21 years of age.

Aloha Nui Loa!

*One night guests can get a special cleaning rate. Just text or call.

About Pete Smith

I am a retired school teacher. I taught Second and Third Grade for most of my career. Bought land in 2003 and had my house in Lahaina built. I love my beautiful wife, Cat, motorcycles, muscle cars, Maui, and painting scenes from my life and the lives of my friends. My club, RocknRoll MC buys and collects Toys for Tots and School Tools. K Mart gives us a super deal, so we buy up all the new bicycles that need work in the warehouse, fix them, and deliver them to the shelters in Wailuku and Kahului. Big fun for us, big fun for them. It's been good making my life in retirement about motorcycles, art and giving a little help to some of Maui's coolest people...the Keikis. RocknRoll!

Pete Smith purchased this hotel in 2013

Why Pete Smith chose Maui

I love Lahaina Shores Beach Resort. It's a boutique hotel like you might find in San Francisco or New Orleans. It isn't a metropolis like the big Ka'anapali hotels. Everything is close. People are friendly. The air smells so fresh. It rarely rains. Baby beach is so beautiful. The hotel is old school in design, but just renovated, so everything feels traditional; but it works and it's so attractive. The pool and the hot tub are just right. The lobby is comfortable and inviting. More fun is just steps away.

It's one mile from my house, so I can take care of my guests easily. The property is just stupid beautiful and yet very affordable to buy, and to rent. And rain bows... and my friends from the mainland line up to visit me....and...and

What makes this hotel unique

It's close to Lulus restaurant (near Safeway). About 1.5 miles away in Cannery Mall. It's famous for many things, including its owner Ron Panzo, who helps everyone in his island wide Ohana. They serve a Banana Foster Desert with local vanilla ice cream, hot and caramelized, bananas, whipped cream and other killa good stuff, so addictive it should be illegal, Awesome Baby Back Ribs, and a crazy good Lava Burger. All at prices so reasonable you won't even believe it. It's not fast food, so be prepared to have drink and wait while everything is prepared fresh. We wen grind Lulu's...Was so Ono! Also live music some nights.

Excellent resort, fabulous apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment, clean and tidy and very comfortable. Well appointed with great amenities. The pool, spa and gardens with the easy access to the beach were fabulous. Check in and out procedures were excellent and speedy. All the staff we met were very helpful and polite. It was a joy to stay here for the final week of our vacation. We will definitely try to come back, but for longer next time.

Property itself was great, room was great for my wofe and I had all of the ammenities needed.

  • 3 of 5

While the room and resort were great and in a good location to town, walking distance to fantastic restuarants and shops. No one informed us of the on going construction to the resort and the room directly next to us. From 8am till 5pm, contiuous banging, sawing and the constant noise from an air compressor turning on and off. This caused us to move our flight up one night to get to our next destination. Someone should have notified us of the on going construction prior to our arrival.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is basically a hotel room, with all the amenities. We love the place, and everything they offer. It was nice that the room had everything we needed to enjoy our start....I would recommend bringing your own beach towels though.

Great location, excellent hotel staff but owner needs more attention to the small details

  • 4 of 5

We had a terrific time on this vacation but some of my personal pet peeves went undone and I felt uncomfortable talking to the owner about them. The owner, for some reason, wasn't aware that when you first come into the condo there was a unpleasant odor. It went away after we aired out the unit for a day. Since he wasn't very receptive to problems I guess he felt he couldn't do anything I didn't complain about the flushing of the toilet. It should have worked better than it did. Also I felt he wasn't well stocked on some ordinary items as not having enough toilet paper on hand. We had to purchase this on our own. Maybe condo owner don't feel they have to be responsible for such things. He certainly made it clear what he expected on our end. The quality of the unit was very good and we did get an excellent rate. It had an at-home appearance. The hotel reception staff are excellent and the concierge was very helpful. There was a friendly atmosphere that made us feel comfortable. If the owner addresses my concerns that I have mentioned his condo would become 5 star. He needs to better prepare the unit and not drop the ball once he gets paid.

Great Location + Great Price !

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing ! Hotel staff were very friendly when we arrived, and very accommodating !

The unit itself was great, very clean, organized and had everything we needed - from different cookware to beach supplies! Laundry is provided on the same level as unit and is coin operated or it will accept credit cards. Pete was easy to get ahold of if we needed him!

You can walk down to front street shopping within 10 minutes at most - lots of great shops, restaurants, and nice ocean view !

Great snorkeling near by - Black Rock was a amazing site, if you're a bit of a daredevil you can even cliff jump off of the black rock ! Lots of different types of fish and if you're lucky enough you will see a turtle or two!

Honolua Bay - Another amazing site ! You park your car in the lot - if you're early enough you will get parking in the lot ! Then you walk down this pathway amongst many Huli Huli Chickens ! This is not a sandy beach at all, there are big rocks in place of the sandy beach - you can leave your bags/gear on the rocks, enter into the water with caution, the rocks are very slipery! Swim out and snorkel towards the right - again, tons of marine life! There are often tour boats around that offload lots of people wanting to snorkel / dive!

Perfect place, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in room 224 at Lahaina Shores. Mountain views on one side, beach access on another. We couldn't have asked for more! Plenty of amenities in a quiet, convenient place to stay in Lahaina. It's right on Front street so there is plenty to do right outside your doorstep. I would definitely stay here again, and would recommend it to all my friends and family. Thanks much for a great time and a peaceful place to rest!

Even a little Hawaiian history is available with self guided tours of historic sites within walking distance and free access to the original Lahaina courthouse displays. Lahaina was the summer gathering place for the royal family, so areas that they frequented are identified with signage and fun to discover and read about. This starts just three blocks from the hotel. An ocean going teaching vessel, totally made in the traditional Hawaiian style, is housed just one half block from the hotel and is free to view. It is called the Mokole'ala. You can even volunteer to work on it if you like. The Jodo Mission is a mile and a half from the hotel. It is the largest Buddist Temple in Maui and features beautiful, traditional Japansese architecture and Bonn festivals in June and a New Year’s festival as well, with dancing lions and dragons. The bronze Buddha is one of the largest outside of Asia.

Just past the Misson is Baby Beach where local people love to come with their children because the water is so warm and shallow. The reef protects the swimmers from big waves. You will be welcomed there if you come. Just remember to stay off the submerged rocks and coral when wading, so animals will not be damaged.

The harbor is three blocks away with active fishing boats offloading their catches, dinner cruise yachts coming and going, and the singing lines of sail boats serenading as you walk the promenade and choose your activity for the day. You can go out on one of our many whale watch boats, in season, or just watch them from the pool area at the hotel. We love the Atlantis submarine tour which leaves from the harbor and dives down 130 feet . You are guaranteed to stay dry and see lots of fish.

Farther north, Honolua Bay is great for snorkelling , but so are many other spots, like Black Rock in Ka’anapali. You can go on canoe tours to view marine life breeding areas in Olowalu. Horseback riding in the ranches in the mountains, zip lines, the beautiful drive to Hana, off road adventures on four wheelers, paint ball, skate parks…..You name it….We have it….well, most of it!

Enjoy your stay!

Mahalo.
