Great view!

We stayed at this Air BnB for a portion of our honeymoon and we absolutely loved it! It was clean and like having our own apartment on our honeymoon with a gorgeous view. We highly recommend this property!

Wonderful 10 Year Anniversary Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Ida has really thought of everything, from the tasteful decor and high end finishes, to the fully furnished kitchen, to beach towels, cooler, umbrella, and chairs. We absolutely loved enjoying mornings and evenings on the lanai, so much so, that it was hard to justify going out most of the time to restaurants where the view would have pales in comparison! The location was out of the busy section of Lahaina, but still close enough to walk to shops. We had a great time at Goofy's Surf School right next door at 505 Front Street, and also traveled the Road to Hana and enjoyed numerous other excursions and beaches around the island throughout our trip, and relaxed coming home to this lovely condo each day. Mahalo for letting us enjoy your slice of paradise!

Peaceful, modern paradise away from the croud

  • 5 of 5

The photos don't do Lahaina Shores justice. The resort is very well kept and beautifully landscaped. The front desk staff are extremely pleasant and helpful.

As for unit 623 ... our expectations were exceeded and we will return again very soon. From the beginning the owner, Ida, was friendly and responsive. The 623 unit is clean, and modernized with every amenity you could desire. The view took our breath away themoment we walked in to the sad moment when we had to walk away.

Lahiana Shores is an amazing location! Front Street is the best and great walks to shops and local restaurants just steps away. Its beach is clean, large and so few people that it feels like your own most times.

There's covered parking, great swimming pool, laundry, and nearby activities such as dinner cruises, surf lessons, paddleboarding, kayaking, parasailing, etc. The location requires no car if you desire. One day we drove to Ka'anapalli and Kapalua only to get there is see multiple cement resorts sharing one beach ~ overcrouded and hectic. We said "that's nice, but.." and quickly drove back to our Lahaina Shores #623. Paradise does exist amd we're very thankful to have experienced it. Thank you Ida xo

Owner's Response: Janine, We are so happy you enjoyed Lahaina Shores and our condo. We purposefully selected Lahaina Shores for its proximity to the charming Town of Lahaina, the Harbor and the weather. Lahaina is not as windy as other locations on the west side. Then we chose Unit 623 for its location within the building and its waterfront overlook. Also, the 6th floor has higher ceilings than other studios in the building. We will continue our efforts to provide a pleasant experience for our guests. Thanks for taking the time to let us know you enjoyed your stay. We hope you come again soon. Aloha, Ida & John

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

I am so happy I chose Lahaina Shores and especially unit 623, it was beautiful beyond words, so modern and homey , it had everything we needed beach chairs, cooler, beach towels etc

The view from the lanai was incredible. It was exactly like the photos. My husband loved having a recliner , bed was comfortable. Nice plush towels and the bathroom..omg..I want to re do my bathroom now to look the same. It was only a few blocks from Lahaina town with lots of shopping and eating choices. 505 Front street shops next door were great also, there was a Whalers General store , where we bought coffee , waters etc. Betty's beach café was nice for breakfast , but most mornings we had coffee and muffins in Lanai. Ida was wonderful to deal with , always answered my emails right away.

We loved having the beach right outside the door and loved sitting on lawn when the tide was high. This was our first trip to Hawaii and we split our time between Waikkii and Maui

but my husband (who at first did not want to be so far from home) just said this morning , and I agree that while it was nice to see Waikkii , he said he would like to go back soon but spend all our time on Lahaina Shores unit 623. Thank you for everything Ida.., thank you for sharing your beautiful home.

Sincerely Nick and Karen Delre

We loved our stay! Comfortable, convenient, full of all things we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful stay at this condo. From its clean modern appearance, to all of the things included we were more than pleased. The best part of it all was the beach chairs that were included that we used on the beach, making it a much more enjoyable time when relaxing in the sun! The bed was extremely comfortable, so much that we hardly wanted to get up in the morning! The resort was in a great location, just minutes from walking to lots of stores and restaurants and it was also nice to be in a place for our honeymoon that didn't have lots of kids, making it relaxing and quiet.

The property was very clean, updated and well stocked the bad part was when we had to leave-we will keep this place in mind for a future visit. The owner of the property communicates promptly and is caring. The view is indescribably breathtaking
