Why Leah Damon chose Lahaina

This plantation style house is in such a great location to vacation in Hawaii. 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.

What makes this house unique

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. It is a super fun place to be.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Leah,

Well, we're leaving the house at about 10:30 this morning, although we all would rather stay for another week or month. We had a great time. The house is really great.

The perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic place to stay. Very comfortable and well furnished with almost everything anyone might need while vacationing there. Top notch appliances in the kitchen made cooking/cleaning a breeze. Great location in downtown in Lahaina. Having your own private parking spot makes this location even more desirable. The only negative - this residence is in a business area. You won't need to set your alarm as the business next door begins blowing their parking lot at 6:00 every morning. Would definitely recommend this listing to anyone planning to stay in Lahaina.

Charming is the perfect description for this house.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house!!! It was the perfect size for us. You absolutely cannot find a better location. If you want to be in downtown Lahaina, then look no further. The drive up to the house is a bit deceiving at first, but the abundance of plants, vines and trees really gives you complete privacy for being in the center of town. The house inside is exactly how the pictures look on Having your own parking area and laundry facilities just made it all the more better.

My family would definitely come back and rent this house again.

Perfect Getaway in Middle of Town!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay here was fabulous! This little cottage is adorable and tastefully and comfortably updated. It is a quiet retreat in the middle of the hustle and bustle. Everything is convenient. We had little need for a car. The back porch is roomy and delightful. Only negative is that one of the bedrooms and baths could use a little update, and it is time to recover the chairs. Otherwise, it was perfect! I would stay there again!
