1 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms, Convertible bed, Sleeps 4, Huge Lanai
My wife and I presently live in Arlington, Texas, that is, when we cannot be in Maui. We operate small businesses, and understand the importance of customer service and exceeding expectations. We will not disappoint.
Owner purchased this Condo in 2010
Why Owner chose Historic Lahaina Front Street
Several years ago, I was on a cruise in Hawaii and one of the ports was Lahania. I really enjoyed the quaint little town and saw Lahaina Shores Beach Resort for the first time. I decided right then that if I was able to return, *that* was where I'd stay. We started visiting Maui around 2006, and we used VRBO to to find a nice condo at Lahaina Shores. We stayed with the same unit for five visits over the years and loved every minute of it. Then, we decided to engage a realtor to help us find a condo of our own. We had previously looked in Kihei, and the realtor took us to see places in Kaanapali, but there just is nothing like being an easy walk from Lahaina Town.
What makes this Condo unique
This is a Penthouse apartment, so it comes with everything including a door bell! The lanai is HUGE, and the view is STUNNING. There are only four Oceanside Penthouse apartments at Lahaina Shores, and this is the only renovated apartment presently available for rent. It is tastefully decorated and furnished with your comfort and enjoyment in mind including unexpected perks like free wireless internet, a 52' HD Sony Bravia LED-LCD television, Sony BluRay DVD player, Time Warner HD DVR, and a small Sony stereo system that includes a CD player and an iPod docking station. Very few apartments offer HD service, and this is the only one that has an HD DVR for guest use. The renovation was done with our fragile environment in mind and includes water saving fixtures, EnergyStar appliances, and LED lighting. This is your Hawaiian home away from home! Enjoy!

Fantastic view; great ambience
Worth staying here for the lanai alone. We have never enjoyed more wonderful views and sunsets. The penthouse is part of a lovely, well-cared for, old hotel. We ate in most evenings. Kitchen was well-stocked with pans, utensils, dishes, etc. There are tons of restaurants in easy walking distance in charming Lahaina as well. Great surfing and beach-walking. We would definitely come back here!
Best place ever we will be back thanks
This penthouse is everything the photos showed and more. The bed in the master suite was so comfortable. The lanai was our favorite go to spot every morning, watching the surfers and waves was so peaceful. You are steps to a lovely beach that you can walk every day. We will be back, thank you so much.
Maui done right
Great property and outstanding location.
The penthouse was perfect! Large,clean and the views awesome !
We will return for sure.
Maui Beach Vacation
Finding a more perfect location than this would be a challenge! Everything about the property, the location, and the facility was outstanding.
The check-in process, including the few simple instructions we needed, was easy and welcoming. Parking could not have been more convenient or affordable.
The room description from the Home Away listing was completely accurate yet that description could not completely capture the unique aspects of this place. The unit is in great condition, the furnishings are extremely comfortable, and the equipping of the unit was complete. We utilized the outdoor accommodations also, e.g., the pool and the grills. The location is ideal, which not only offers a wonderful view but a spot mere steps from the beach.
We thoroughly enjoyed our walks to the nearby restaurants and shopping.
It was difficult to leave at the end of our stay!
Enjoyed overall stay. Property as advertised.
Pros - view from Lanai is worth the price alone. Grounds of resort are clean and well maintained. Expedia desk in lobby is helpful for excursions. Location of resort is an easy walk to all shops, restaurants, etc. on Front St.
Cons - TVs are way too difficult to work. It shouldn't be this hard to watch and navigate. A basic listing of what is and what isn't provided in the condo would be helpful to have beforehand.
Overall - worth the price and would stay here again. Owner was receptive and timely to any questions we had.
Great location within an easy 5 minute walking distance of all that Lahaina Town has to offer with great choices of restaurants, pubs, and plenty of shopping, yet still far enough away for when you really just want peace and quite. Even whale watching excursions, snorkeling adventures, and dinner cruises leave just down the beach from the harbor.
Right next door, enjoy the Shops at 505, which includes boutiques, excellent restaurants, pubs, and a great upscale luau, the Feast at Lele.
This is truly the best place from which to enjoy all that Maui has to offer.
