771 Luakini St., Lahaina, Maui Hawaii, 96761 is the cutest, quaintest, most charming embracing little plantation style house, in the Historic District of Lahaina. The house has 2 bedrooms, each with queen sized pillow top beds and 2 bathrooms, one with a claw foot bath tub and the other a tiled shower with a glass door. Air Conditioning units in the living room and in each bedroom. Please email for our YouTube video of the house. Please email or call for additional questions. Vacationing in a home (free standing house) is so sweet and very different from a condo experience. Everyone comments on how wonderful it is to be able to park at the house and walk all around Lahaina and home again. Guests love the convenient location that allows walking to everything in Lahaina. Great food, really Really great food within a block of the house and all around this area. Walk to movies and to the Lahaina Harbor and to all types of shops and galleries.

The stretch of Front Street on the ocean side of this property has no structures, offering wide open ocean views, bench seating and stairs to a little tiny beach, great area for sunsets, whale watching boat watching and people watching. At this Lahaina location there is little need for a car except to go to great destinations like Haleakala National Crater and Seven Sacred Pools in Hana. Property is one lot away from Lahainaluna Rd. right by Lahaina Grill Restaurant (formerly David Paul's), next to the Lahaina Marketplace and across Front Street from Cheeseburger in Paradise, near Gerards Plantation Grill, Kimo's, Lahaina Yacht Club, Bubba Gumps, The Lahaina Banyan Tree, the Historic Lahaina Banyan Tree by the Lahaina Harbor and the oceanfront Lahaina Library, galleries and museums and fabulous other fun things to experience. Luakini St. is a one-lane, one-way street with travel heading towards Kaanapali. There is very little traffic. It is easiest to enter Luakini St. from Dickenson St. Close to all types of restaurants, spa services, movies and live broadway type theater at Ulelena. The Lahaina huge one-block sized famous Banyon tree. Walk to the harbor for snorkel trips, boating, fishing, ferry trips to the island of Molokai. The little house could be the subject of any Maui painting. Hang your snorkel and fins or surfboard outside and live the Lahaina lifestyle. Less then 200 feet to the oceans edge. Watch whales and spectacular sunsets over the ocean from Front St.

                        We just got back from Maui. This property was everything it is advertised to be. Central to everything on the island. Very neat and clean. We especially enjoyed breakfast on the back deck in the mornings. We would recommend this property to anyone and we would rent again if available the next time we visit Maui.

                        We had an absolutely wonderful time during our weeklong stay at this bungalow in the heart of Lahaina. It had every amenity we could ever ask for, and all in great working order. The washer and dryer were so convenient to have and we definitely utilized it during our stay. The three complaints I usually have when staying away from home are: uncomfortable bed; not enough bedding; too few towels. That was certainly not the case here! I slept as well as I did at home, and it was nice to have extra blankets to use while relaxing on the couch. We rented a car, but really didn't need it much as 90% of our time was spent walking to the local restaurants, shops, and Foodland (short walks to all!). As previous reviews have mentioned, the photos and Youtube videos are completely accurate, but really don't do the little house justice on how nice (and clean!) and comfortable it is. We look forward to the day we can come back. Thanks so much Leah! PS: One piece of advice for future renters... keep the spare key in the lockbox... it's a lifesaver if you lock yourself out :)

                        My husband, daughter, mother and father stayed at this rental for a week. You can't beat the location!! The house is located right on Front Street near shops and the Lahaina harbor. The owner has kept the house very clean and updated. As previous renters have stated, the rental has EVERYTHING you would need. There is a spacious deck out back, full size washer and dryer including items to take to the beach, 2 full size bedrooms and bathrooms. The neighborhood is quiet except for some construction (for a few days) next to the house but we are early risers and it didn't bother us. I would absolutely recommend this rental and would stay here again!! If you have any questions, the owner is very responsive in answering any questions you have regarding the rental or area. She even recommended a company to rent baby items we needed and they are very affordable and saved us time (they pick up and drop of the items) and money. We had a great time.

Very well equipped, clean, well maintained, and close to shopping, restaurants, grocery, activities, etc. We have recommended this to our friends and family as the perfect quiet retreat hidden in the center of town.

                        What a wonderful little cottage nestled in the heart of Lahania. The place was very clean, comfortable and was equipped with everything you would need and more. Walking distance to all the great resturants and nightlife entertainment. It's a home away from home. I only wish I could have stayed longer. Be careful of the back door... I locked myself out twice. You would think I would learn after the first time. It's is one of those door handles that all new development homes have and they seem to be unlocked from the inside, but when you close the door your locked out. I will come back again and again.

                        Owner response: Think of that door handle like a railroad crossing, when the knob is up and down, vertical, open, the lock is unlocked and when the bar goes side to side, horizontal the door is locked. So sorry for any inconvenience and I am available too, if you call me, I can get you in.

                        The listing and pictures of this cute little house in the middle of town was very accurate. We felt like we were at home while staying in the house. It was nicely decorated and had a lot of character. The back deck was the highlight of the house for us. We spent most of our time out on the deck. And we didn't have to walk far to the grocery store or all the shopping and restaurants. It was great to be able to walk to Scoop's for Kona coffee ice cream every night. We will definitely return!

                        Simply wonderful: I can think of no other way to elegantly describe my overall opinion of this lovely house in Lahaina. You are steps away from downtown Ola Lahaina and the Ocean Front. The house so well makes best use of available space and your comfort is never an issue. You walk in the door and you are a world away from the life you lead on the mainland. I and my travel companions quite literally stood in the entry to the house and stared lovingly into the living room and open kitchen. When we came to our senses, several minutes later, we made our way through the rest of the bedrooms and their well cared for bathrooms and finally out the back door to a just perfect sized deck for dining and lounging. The owners show all possible pictures of this beautiful house on this site for a reason, there is nothing to hide and so much to be proud of. As with other reviews below there are the occasional early wake up calls with trash collection and leaf blowing but in honesty many of us are up early anyways due to the time difference. Once you get into the time change groove however and sleeping in becomes part of your luxury regimen, this is when you want to give the leaf blower a piece of your mind LOL :) ... No matter because I will be back in this beautiful house just as soon as I can find the next open slot in my schedule and judging by the calendar, you all better hurry up and make your reservations soon.

Located in the Historic District of Lahaina, Maui, moments to the ocean's edge and walking distance to harbor, museums, art galleries, shopping and a huge variety of great food, unbelievable food. When we bought this house it was in very bad shape and has taken years to restore to it's vibrant cheerful happy contemporary condition. It has a great welcoming embracing warm feeling and is loved and cared for very much. Just entering the house gives everyone the feeling of Aloha.

                      Vacationing in a house is living as a Maui resident, right in historic Lahaina neighborhood with easy access to the Lahaina harbor, museums, art galleries, shopping and a huge variety of oceanfront restaurants and great food such as Lahaina Grill, Kimo's, Cheeseburger in Paradise, Bubba Gumps, Lahaiha Yatch Club, Plantation House, Hard Rock Cafe, Ono Galato and many more.
