About Amanda and Ken Dawson

We are a couple who currently reside in the Seattle, WA area. Before moving to the States we both grew up in Canada, Ken in White Rock, BC and Amanda in Toronto, ON. We own and operate a Wholesale Distribution business here in Seattle and also own some rental properties throughout the Washington area.

Amanda and Ken Dawson purchased this condo in 2017

Why Amanda and Ken Dawson chose Lahaina

We have visited Maui a few times for family vacations and absolutely love the Island. The laid back charm of Maui is alluring and very relaxing. Not to mention that no matter where you go here you are surrounded by beautiful beaches and breathtaking views of the oceans, mountains and valleys. Before we even had the idea to purchase here at Aina Nalu we stayed ourselves as guests in the Resort. The Resort far exceeded any expectations we had. We were incredibly impressed with the grounds, the pools and the unit itself. It was the first family vacation we ever took where after 2 weeks, none of us wanted to leave! We have a family of 5 with kids ranging from 22 to 10 years old and there is something for everyone here, no one had any complaints. Needless to say we now own 3 condos in this Resort. We have traveled all over Maui and the Town of Lahaina is by far one of our favorite places! We just felt so at home here. Front St, which is 2 blocks away, is very inviting and has everything you need. Here you can find the Banyon Tree, shops, restaurants (some of which offer really great live music), the Lahaina Harbor and can't forget about the 505 beach. Getting some Gelato or shaved ice and watching the sunset into the Ocean soon became a family tradition. The town and the resort just really captured our hearts and we wanted to own a piece of Paradise for ourselves.

What makes this condo unique

Aina Nalu boasts many wonderful features. The grounds and the pools are exceptionally maintained. You will find beautiful Hawaiian plants, gardens and waterfalls through out. Relaxing around the Resort you are often taken by the beautiful aromas of the Hawaiian island carried in by the gentle breeze of the trade winds. We have stayed here both as a family and as well as just a couple and it is so well suited for both needs. The resort has everything you need including 2 pools which is a huge bonus! Grilling dinner by the pool while the kids swam is how we spent many of our evenings as a family. As a couple, we really enjoyed unwinding from the day by an evening dip in the pool, relaxing in the hot tub or even just sitting by the pool enjoying a nice glass of wine. The 2 bedroom unit has all the comforts of home and is so well laid out giving everyone their privacy and space. It is almost impossible not to fall into an intense state of relaxation with no worries at all here.

Simply beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay in Lahaina. This unit was so cozy, we felt completely at home. We had everything we needed to go to the beach, we loved it!! And being so close to town was a definite plus, we were just blocks away from all of the shops and restaurants.

Felt like home.

  • 5 of 5

We fully enjoyed this property and the Lahaina area. We stayed for 5 nights, and it did not take long for the space to feel like home. Amanda was amazingly responsive anytime that I had an inquiry about something. That made me feel so comfortable since we were traveling all the way from New York with 3 kids. The condo is very clean! My teens loved that they could walk to Front Street shops and such, and I could be completely comfortable that it was a safe area. They also loved the pools! We really appreciated Amanda's recommendation for surfing lessons with Bear & Bully! It is one of my kids most cherished memories! Thank you Ken & Amanda for helping to make our vacation such a comfortable experience. - The Foster Family, NY

Thank you Amanda and Ken for allowing us to stay in your beautiful condo! The condo itself is clean and decorated nicely. The location is close to everything- grocery, shops, restaurants and beach. We love that you thought of the little things that made our stay enjoyable: beach accessories & board games, etc. We are already looking forward to our next visit! Mahalo!

Well-appointed condo in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in this condo and LOVED it. We were traveling with four other families and this complex was perfect- not too big of a complex, walking distance to shops and restaurants, close to the beach, wonderful pools. The condo itself is very cute- beachy and comfortable. I loved how well the owners thought of everything that you might need including a cooler, beach chairs, an umbrella, and even toys and games for the kids. They even supply you with dish soap, laundry soap, and dishwasher tabs. I'd definitely stay here again.

You do end up paying for parking, bit IMO it's totally worth the convenience.

Be sure to eat at Down the Hatch (get the Mermaid Fries and the Fish Tacos) and walk to the taco truck and smoothie truck (TaquEATa and Baya Bowls) a block down from the house for breakfast or lunch.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful place with us, Ken and Amanda!
