About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 2 Queen beds + Convertible Queen bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)



Lahaina Shores is a small boutique Oceanfront resort situated on a quiet all sand reef protected beach, within a 4 block walk of historic Lahaina Town. Frommer’s describes Lahaina Shores as “Maui’s hidden jewel of a hotel”. While our condo is offered as private lodging, our guests enjoy all of the resort features, a refreshing swimming pool, heated Jacuzzi, outdoor gas BBQ grills, manicured lawns, and lots of lounges for sunbathing or relaxing under the shade of a palm tree. A 24 hour reception desk is available for your convenient check-in, there is also an Expedia island activities desk that offers daily presentations providing helpful information and reservation assistance.

This spacious 1 bedroom condominium has 2 bathrooms, a separate living room with a queen sofa sleeper which can also act as a second bedroom. It is newly remodeled with 2 private entrances with a desirable ground floor, oceanfront location. We enjoy unobstructed ocean views from our lanai, living/dining room and kitchen. We are located on the quiet side of the building, truly the perfect spot.

Amenities include 2 very comfortable queen beds with high thread count sheets, a fold-out queen sofa in the living room, 55 inch flat screen TV in the living and a 42 inch flat screen TV in the bedroom, free cable, free high speed wireless Internet, full kitchen with a dishwasher, washer/dryer and on site parking.

Lahaina is on the “sunny side” of the island, you will always have the best weather conditions with far less rain and wind than other locations on Maui. Lahaina Shores is a lovely alternative to busy high density more expensive resorts. The wide beach and ocean is only thirty steps from your private lanai offering a mile long beach for strolling. You can literally watch whales leaping out of the water from your lanai and living room during whale season.

It is just a short 4 block walk to the town of Lahaina which is full of restaurants, shops, activities, art galleries and the harbor for all whale watch, snorkel and boating excursions. Surfing, Stand Up Paddle and Kayak lessons and rentals are available right next door at 505 Front Street, along with restaurants, a convenience store, and shops.

We know that you will enjoy our very special home away from home. Aloha!

About Nina and Chuck Stratton

Our family has been traveling to Maui for many years. When we decided that we wanted to spend more time on Maui we started our condo search. Certain criteria had to be met, ocean front, ground floor (no elevators or hallways), lower density, the best weather on the island (Lahaina, more sun, less wind and rain), and an area in which we could walk for dinner, coffee, ice cream, shopping and the harbor (Lahaina Town).

Well, we found it all with our ground floor, ocean front condo at Lahaina Shores. We are happy to share it with vacationers who will appreciate the "Best Beachfront Location in Lahaina, and the Best Weather on Maui" !!

Nina and Chuck Stratton purchased this condo in 2008

Why Nina and Chuck Stratton chose Lahaina

We choose this location because of the LOCATION!! The setting is on a semi-private all sand beach of over 1/2 mile long. We are ground level directly on the beachfront. The other big bonus of this spot is that it is only a short 4 block walk to Lahaina with it's wide variety of shops, art galleries, restaurants, activities and the harbor for all whale watch, snorkeling and boating adventures.

What makes this condo unique

Benefits of our condo include a large master bedroom, 2 full bathrooms, 2 large flat screen televisions, free high speed internet, a fully equipped kitchen, new carpeting, etc. It is very clean and newly remolded, and enjoys the perfect location. Since this is our second home, we are constantly improving the unit for our comfort which benefits our guests.

Air conditioning wasn’t working

Buzzing noise in master bedroom

Owner's Response: The air conditioning went out in the entire building. This had nothing to do with our unit. The condominium complex repaired the chiller asap which restored the air conditioning and took care of the buzzing noise.

Wow! What a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great stay at this property. Owners responded quickly to any questions and were flexible with special requests. It is a 5-minute walk to coffee, restaurants and shops and straight out your front door is the ocean. I loved that this area did not have huge hotels around it. Where we stayed was the largest building in the area. It's a great spot for someone who likes to sit on the beach or on the grass at the condo overlooking the ocean, read and chill.

Wonderful accommodations for our son's family of 5. Well furnished and a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival we were welcomed with chocolates and cold drinks. The gated front lawn, pool, and hot tub were great, as was the sandy beach and view of the surfers. Pillow-top beds were the best. Our thanks to the Strattons.

Ideal location

  • 4 of 5

Spacious condo right on the beach, walking distance to all of Lahaina. Nothing super fancy, but a wonderful beach get away that gives you the comforts of home. Great, responsive owners to work with. Thank you for a wonderful stay in Maui.

Remote feel in the heart of town

  • 5 of 5

We could not have picked a better place to be! It's so quiet and peaceful inside the resort that you almost feel like it's your own private condo. The beach is beautiful, over looking Lanai, it's great to train for snorkeling trips, but not the best swimming area. Then, once you leave the resort, you are just a few steps away from the dozens of amazing restaurants, art galleries, marina (for excursions and cruises), and excitement Lahaina town has to offer. It really is the best of both worlds. Ka'anapoli is less than a 10 minute drive, hanalua bay is about 15-20 mins away, the airport is about 40 mins. We journeyed almost everywhere and we were always glad we chose Lahaina Shores.

Great location, great views

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Lahaina. It was nice to be able to walk into town, have breakfast at Pioneer Inn, and stroll through the various stores. Having own beach was a plus and we got plenty of sun. Immediate area not the best for swimming or snorkeling but just a short distance to move favorable spots. Unit was as described and was stocked with nice cookware, utensils and most all basic spices, etc. I would definitely rent again if going to Maui. Thanks!
