Cosy studio in a nice quiet complex in walking distance to downtown Lahaina amenities

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The complex has two beautiful pools, so if you wanna stay in and relax, you can do it without leaving the condo complex. The pools are clean, well mainatined, beautifully designed, with lawn, chairs, washrooms, and a rinsing shower. There is also a small hot pool. There is a concierge booth with a helpuf attendant who cheerfully organizes daily orientation on Maui attractions, and also has a draw for free tickets for various activities and excursions.

Kathleen, the unit Owner, was very approachable, and accommodating. She let us do a late check out as our flight out was close to midninght.

The only thing we were missing in the studion was washer/dryer, which for some reason was not installed in a spot provided for it.

This was simple. I booked, I received the detailed information for the rental about ten days in advance, I showed up and I relaxed....

This condo is small. It is perfect for a couple (romantic).

It's clean. The air conditioning was very nice.

The location is beyond perfect. You can walk to the wharf/front street in minutes...shops, restaurants, grocery store, bike rentals all within walking distance.

The actual resort is clean and the pools are nice. The hot tub is really nice after a long day of walking. The property is clean and well maintained.

It was a nice relaxing vacation.

Kathleen was a dream to email/text... no issues

Parking: NO place to park on the street as its packed all the time. TONS of parking on site, but it does cost $20 a day. But, it made it easy.

I had a lovely stay. Kathleen's instructions were clear, concise, and easy to follow. The self tour Hana audio cd was very beneficial. Thank you for providing it. I would definitely stay here again.

Clean, walking distance to shops and restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

This condo was very clean and comfortable. It was a very short and easy walk to go shopping and town. Kathleen was great to work with even when I had to change my vacation date. I would recommend it for couples.

Only suggestion is to go downtown and shop around before booking excursions. The conceriege was helpful but we may have had better deals elsewhere.

Aina nalu is located in the heart of Lahaina town, just steps from famous Front Street. In the early 1800's, Lahaina was the busiest whaling port in the Pacific. Today visitors and locals alike gather for fun at this charming historic waterfront. From stylish bistros serving Hawaiian and Pacific-Asian cuisine, to world-class galleries filled with eclectic art, to the lively nightlife. Lahaina is one of Maui's most delightful destinations.

Every year from December through March the North Pacific Humpback Whales migrate to the warm tropical waters of Hawaii. The coastal waters of Maui by far enjoys the largest concentration of these amazing animals. Whale watching in Maui is some of the best in the world and as good as it gets. There are many whale watching tours departing from Lahaina harbor during the winter months.
