Lahaina Shores Beach Resort condo description
Owner Jim Egan is an award winning art director and graphic designer. Now retired, he has turned his attention to re-designing both of his mountain view studios to make better use of the space and be more functional.
The significant renovations of both the sixth floor Mountain View studio #624 and the fifth floor Mountain View studio #520 have now been completed as of October '13, making them duplicates. This includes California King size beds, all new kitchens with solid wood cabinetry and each features an oven range and microhood, a sleek vanity room, walk in shower with a transparent glass side wall, Mexican travertine and ceramic tile floors and shower walls, new carpeting, etc. The Grohe wall bar showers are the same as you may sometimes find in a 5 star hotel. (A lot more than a hotel room ~ for a lot less.)
In addition to the complete furnishings of a vacation home, you are provided with the 'niceties' of a beachfront resort hotel including an open, breezy, comfortably furnished lobby, central air conditioning, large swimming pool, large jacuzzi, BBQ, 24 hr. front desk, etc. The central air conditioning has individual electronic controls. The entryway, the lobby, elevators and hallways have been remodeled, no doubt inspired by early Hawaiian plantation mansions.
The property is fronted by the ocean and has a beach which is excellent for sunbathing, safe swimming and snorkeling. (There's a reef about 150 yds. out which protects the beach from surf.) The large, manicured lawn area and swimming pool between the building and the beach are enhanced with umbrella'd tables & chairs, plus loungers for reading, sunning and snoozing. There's even a heated, bubbling, jacuzzi spa!
These centrally air conditioned 550 sq. ft. mountain view studios consist of a large living/bedroom area, a dining area and a walk in shower with a separate vanity room. The firm California King size beds, along with the carpeted bedroom / living areas, make these desirable retreats. Also, there's a rollaway bed with standard size mattress for a third guest. Both studios provide an unobstructed view of the West Maui Mountains (see photo).
High speed WiFi access is FREE. Also, a 24' Vizio flat screen HDTV and a DVD/CD player were recently installed in each unit. The fully equipped kitchens are complete with full size appliances, a microwave, cookware, dishes and utensils. Plenty of linens and towels (as well as beach towels) are provided. And you can leave your hair dryer and iron at home.
At 475 Front St., this is the only beachfront resort in Lahaina. It's just a 3/10 mile walk along Front St. to Lahaina Harbor and quaint, historic Lahaina Town itself, Maui’s storied shop-’til-you-drop, gallery hopping, dining & partying mecca. Lahaina Harbor offers a full menu of boat trips for diving, snorkeling, sport fishing, whale or dolphin watching. Or for a memorable sunset cocktail / dinner cruise.
World class golf (think Kapalua and Ka'anapali) is available nearby.

Hi Jim ~~ What a great job you did on the studio apartment. Loved your pictures. We enjoyed looking at the Mt's. on the deck and from the room. The colors on the mountains were always changing. The sun shining and the clouds on the mountains were beautiful. I took a ton of photos. When I get them on the computer I will sent you some. The location of your studio was perfect. Lahaina Shores is within walking distance of town and the ocean a few steps away Next door there are some good places to eat.. We saw Warren & Annabelle's Magic show. It was so funny. We also saw "Ulalena" play. It was Great!.. Hope sometime to be able to get back to Maui and if we do we want to stay in the same unit. You have a beautiful place there. If you ever get to KY let us know and we can meet and show you around our area. Thanks again. We had a great time.

Would recommend Unit 624 at Lahaina Shores to any couple. The studio was tastefully decorated, well stocked, clean and the desk reception staff were friendly and helpful. Convenient location on the less busy end of Front Street, so easy to walk to shops, nice beach access for early morning beach walks, & convenient underground parking adjacent to the condo. Balcony was great for quiet morning sitting while having coffee and watching the shades of sunrise over the mountains. Jim was helpful in providing lots of info about activities in the area, as well resources for more info. We attended the Ulalena performance which we thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys live musical theatre. He was also very prompt in responding to our inquiries. Thanks, Jim, for a wonderful place to stay for our week-long vacation.

Owner response: Shirley's review is much appreciated. Speaking of walking ~ it's only 3/10ths of a mile to Lahaina Harbor and the beginning of picturesque, historic Lahaina Town itself, Maui's storied shop-til-you-drop, gallery hopping, dining & partying mecca.

Comparable to the 4 star hotels . . .
It was a pleasure working with Jim. First of all, he doesn't require a deposit as compared to everyone else. (Editors note: it's actually $200.) He also allowed us early check-in. The location is perfect. Walking distance to the shops, restaurants and all the happenings in Lahaina. It has its own beach which is calm and has warmer water compared to the other beaches. Also has a swimming pool and jacuzzi. Jim's condo is on the sixth floor which provides you with a beautiful view of the mountains. Very tastefully furnished. Comparable to the 4 star hotels with plenty of room. Kitchen was stocked with all the utensils needed for preparing a meal. Also has beach towels, lawn chairs and even a boogie board. Jim's unit is a great value. We paid a lower rate than all the other guests for a premier unit.

Loved this condo in Lahaina!! This location is perfect! You can walk to several restaurants.The complex is cozy and is right on the beach. Our unit faced the beautiful mountains and had some gorgeous rainbows! Don't miss Warren and Annabelle's Magic show in Lahaina.. it is AMAZING! Trilogy is the best snorkeling company. Download Maui Revealed app to your phone and it has everything you need to know to do in Maui! We loved Aloha Mixed Plate for local food and fantastic ocean view! We would walk down the beach to town and have breakfast at Cheeseburger In Paradise, great prices and ocean front! Aloha! :)

Owner response: If you'd rather not have a rental car, I can give you info on a shuttle service from the airport. Also the activities desk folks in the lobby are real expert on arranging excursions at a discount. Aloha, Jim Egan (owner)

Just wanted to thank you for another great 2 weeks
Jim, I returned home on Thursday evening, a week ago. Left Maui with 82 degree weather and arrived in Pasco, WA at 11:30 in the evening and it was 7 degrees. I wanted to get back on the plane and return to Maui. Just wanted to thank you for another great 2 weeks in Lahaina. Am looking forward to 2012. Thank you for the great lodging at #624.

Thank you so much for all your advice . . .
Hello Jim ~~ Thank you so much for all your advice on what to see & do in Maui. Lynda and I took in whale watching, that awesome production of Ulalena, and a trip down the road to Hana. We walked to town daily, sometimes just to watch the goings on and other times to shop till we dropped. We had a superb meal at Pacific O - yum! We sat on the lanai every morning admiring the beautiful view of the mountains while drinking our coffee and tea. The condo was super comfortable and very clean. Thank you for displaying your wonderful prints. I especially liked the four flowers over the table. I will be sure to contact you again next time I come to the Hawaiian Islands.

About the owner: Since retiring from his advertising and graphic design career, Jim has been promoting his three Maui condo rentals via the internet. To satisfy his creative appetite, he joined the Honolulu Printmakers. In a workshop environment Jim has learned printmaking techniques including engraving, etching, aquatint, embossing and photogravure. Jim's efforts in these areas have resulted in his works being included in the juried Honolulu Printmakers Annual shows since 2005. In the '05 Annual Show, he was awarded the HonBlue purchase award. In March 2007, the Center for Contemporary Printmaking in Norwalk, CT held their Sixth Annual Miniature Print Biennial in which Jim was awarded third prize. 130 works were displayed out of 548 entries from 180 artists living in 18 countries. The judge was the esteemed David Kiehl, curator of prints at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City. The show got an upbeat review in the Arts and Entertainment section of the April 29, 2007 Sunday New York Times. The reviewer described the print 'Fantasy Hibiscus,' as a 'lush, colored photogravure of a flower by Jim Egan from Hawaii, striking a balance between mastery of technique and innovation.' My golf game? That's a whole other story!
Why the Owner Chose Lahaina Shores Beach Resort:
Why Lahaina Shores Beach Resort? Being that Lahaina was decreed a National Historical Landmark by the National Park Service on December 29th, 1962, it seemed a wise long term investment to be nearby. So far, so good. Originally I had rented my fifth and sixth floor units as long term rentals. Once I retired from advertising and graphic design in 1990, I thought it would be interesting to self market my condos (also one at Maui Vista Resort in Kihei) as vacation rentals. So I developed my own website and promoted my properties through VRBO and other portals on the Internet. Now I find I'm really enjoying helping folks enjoy Maui. It's gratifiying to get feedback on information provided about things to see and do and where to eat. Many guests write me notes on how much they enjoyed the suggestions, and even have suggestions of their own. Other than golf (don't ask), and my art, this is what I do. Fun!
