"Overall our stay was wonderful. The resort is in the best location on the island. Great beach, great pool, great hot tub. Not crowded at all this time of year. This was our second stay at Lahaina Shores, our first stay in this unit. We traveled with friends who booked through Costco, so I have a couple of rooms to compare this one to.
The Pros- OCEAN VIEW, 5th floor- amazing! Both this unit and the Costco unit had ocean views. The Costco unit was on floor 3, so they had palm trees partially blocking their view. This unit was fully loaded. We had a blender (great for smoothies!) and found that our friends spent a lot of time in our room to use the blender etc. The Costco room did not come with one. We had floaties, beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels and snorkle gear in our room. The Costco room did not. I LOVE how this room is set up, the murphy bed tucks away during the day making to room feel much bigger and more comfortable. There is not an overwhelming amount of decor. The room was SPOTLESS. Our previous visit in a different unit we were plagued by sugar ants. I did not see a single insect in this unit. The carpet is NICE! The pictures do not do this room justice at all.
The bad- to be totally honest, the bed was very uncomfortable, the futon sleeper also. The Costco bed was worse than ours though. We are pretty spoiled with a memory foam at home, so I assume the bed probably isn't as bad as we felt it was. The bedding could be updated. But overall, my biggest complaint- The plastic lanai furniture! While it wouldn't steer me away from booking this room again, an upgrade in the lanai furniture would be wonderful! There was a touch of a musty smell the first time we entered the room but that was the only time we noticed it. The Costco room was much much mustier and smelled almost like stale cigarette smoke. The oven in our room was old enough to vote, the oven in the Costco unit was the exact same.
Overall, we rented this room solely based on the price. We had low expectations. The room exceeded our expectations and was a better choice than the Costco room our friends booked. The few things we recommend improving would not sway our choice to book this unit again. Please update the listing as your photos and description do not do this room justice. If you are looking for 5 star accommodation, Lahaina Shores isn't for you. If you are looking for a clean, well appointed condo with unbeatable views, then don't hesitate to book this unit!"

"After a 27 hours trip from Paris, what a pleasure to discover your house, the kind message of Patty, snacks and coffee ! The first morning was just amazing ! Sunrise over the seaside view and the garden, just magnificent. Thanks for the CDs of Hawaiian music that we listened to in the evening while enjoying a nice diner outside... We'll go back in France full of memories : whales, the road to Hana, ocean centre, big beach, shave ice, lu'au ... :) and thanks to all the people of Maui for their kindness. Hope one day we can come back. Mahalo !"

"My husband and I stayed here for one week and enjoyed every minute! The condo is located just steps away from the beach where we enjoyed the sea turtles and even watched whales jumping. It was nice being able to make our own meals utilizing the onsite grill. The condo is absolutely beautiful and decorated tastefully. We would love to return to this tropical paradise again in the future. Sam and George ... we can't thank you enough!"

"This was our 3rd time staying at the Aina Nalu but the 1st renting directly from an owner. Will definitely do so again. Chelsea was great to work with from the beginning of the process and was there to answer any questions we had while on the island. The room was nice and clean plus had the perks that come with being an owner operated unit (in-room Wi-fi, cooler, etc.) We especially enjoyed the guest book and spent some time looking through all of the entries. Just a great touch all around.
Hope to be back again Summer 2015!
Perfect distance to Front St.
Nice and quiet location in the complex
2BR / 1B means you get a larger living room
Walking distance to some small beachfront areas but short enough distance in car that it is not an issue to drive.
We had to leave!"
