Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this studio so much. Ida really thought of everything. The beach chairs, cooler, lots of ice trays, plenty of towels and even a champagne cork;)! We cooked in the kitchen daily and really appreciated the little things like Tupperware and Saran Wrap. My husband loved the new, custom/modern finishes. We walked into town every night. The location is perfect. Directly on the beach but so close to all the shops and restaurants. Highly recommend! Thanks for letting us stay at your place.

Owner's Response: Aloha Heather, We were so excited to hear you enjoyed your stay in our condo. We do try to provide amenities that we ourselves would enjoy for a comfortable stay and would appreciate having in the condo. We were happy to hear your husband enjoyed the modern decor. We did do Hawaiian art to give the condo an Hawaiian touch. I agree, the location is ideal with downtown Lahaina and the Harbor just a short walk away. Please come again. Mahalo, Ida and John

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this property to everyone and I can’t wait to come back! A beautiful condo that allows for complete relaxation. I loved that it was within walking distance to food, shopping and entertainment. Loved having the beach accessible for a quick ocean swim! This space is set up as if it were your own. The bed was amazingly comfortable and listening to the sounds of the waves crashing made for a fantastic nights sleep!!

Absolute Dream!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is everything we had hoped for and more. Ida has anticipated anything you could possibly need, right down to the beach chairs, cooler and umbrella. The unit is beautifully decorated and very clean. After spending time in the downtown area or the beach it was a haven to come back to.

Thank you for the opportunity to stay at Lahaina Shores!!
