The State of Hawaii’s Department of Land and Natural Resources and the National Marine Fisheries Service recommend observing wildlife from a distance and under no circumstances touching, riding or feeding sea turtles. You can find a complete list of guidelines here. Any violation of these guidelines is punishable by state and federal laws.
Hawaii is a unique place and we should all do our part to preserve its unique ecosystems. By following the federal guidelines included above and the State’s recommended guidelines that you can access here, and reminding your guests to do the same, we can ensure that future generations have a chance to enjoy Hawaii’s native species and natural habitats.

About Carmen Karady
Aloha! My name is Carmen Karady and have lived in Lahaina for fifteen years. I teach yoga at the nearby hotel resorts and senior center. I am an active member of the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset. As International chair for our club, I have travelled to Africa, India, Japan and Egypt and Europe. I have a wonderful partner, Norman Estin, who is a physician in town for Doctors on Call. The terrific news is that I'm a grandmother.
Carmen Karady purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Carmen Karady chose Lahaina
Voted as one of the best beach towns in the USA, this is a great location for tourists and locals alike, and it's getting better all the time because many of the historical sites are being renovated. One of the advantages of staying in Lahaina is that you don't need a car. Everything is in walking distance--from the Banyan Park to the Harbor. The beach is right outside your backdoor, as well as next door art galleries, museums, churches, restaurants, and shops. The location is incredibly convenient.
What makes this Condo unique
Maui is special for many reasons: its rejuvenating qualities are due to the fresh air, sparkling warm ocean, sunshine, and constant year-round ideal temperatures. Not only do the winter birds flock to Maui, but summer birds as well because of the moderate climate. And let's not forget Maui's volcano, Haleakala, 'House of the Rising Sun,' a pilgrimage well worth taking at dawnbreak or sunset when you can simultaneously watch the moon rise and the sun set. Then there are jungles and waterfalls, golf courses galore, and day trips to neighboring islands. So many fun things to do. One of the most unique benefits of this particular location is direct beach access--just walk out the back gate! Next door is the surfing school where you can rent paddle and surf board; and you can join my yoga classes for free.

Gorgeous, well-kept & convenient
I almost don't want to give the glowing review Carmen deserves... because I want to come again and, if you knew how perfect this place is, it would be booked solid. We had a minor confusion at checkin, very ably sorted by Alyson at the front desk. (All the front desk staff are absolutely stellar.) Gorgeous unit, beautifully appointed and maintained, couldn't be more convenient. Do bring water shoes; if you wade out the shallow, well-protected beach is stony. Walk to downtown for the best meal at Lahaina Fish Company (lunch is cheaper), shopping,, the banyan tree, and a feeling of history. Then return to Carmen's condo and enjoy the warm, soft evening from your lanai and a cool, refreshing sleep in a very nice bed. Just don't book when I want to go!
Great place with pool & beach access
We stayed here with our seven month old baby and it was amazing. There is a pool, hot tub, and flat grassy area with chairs and umbrellas all set up for you, steps away from a super chill sandy beach. We actually didn't go anywhere the first few days because we had everything we needed right at Lahaina Shores and could walk a couple blocks to the general store/restaurants for food. The condo itself has a nice balcony with a mountain view and is clean and well-stocked. We had everything we needed in there. Definitely baby friendly and a great way to experience Lahaina. Thanks for the stay!
Peaceful and quiet
Clean well kept unit with all the amenities. Beautiful view of the mountains during early morning breakfast. Only resort with beach out front with beach chairs and other goodies provided by owner. Thanks for a wonderful stay Carmen. Will definitely be back.

Best Vacation ever!
We loved our vacation at Lahaina Shores Beach Resort. Everything we needed was provided for us at the condo. The location was perfect for us. We enjoyed the slow pace of the area but also within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants. We did travel to the resort area just up the road form our luau and were so glad we weren't staying in that area because of the large crowds and crowded beaches. The 24 front desk assistants was also nice and the onsite concierge was very helpful in booking all of our activities.
Nice sunsets, great location, good value!
We loved being close to all the shops and restaurants in Lahaina and just a 10 min. drive to the nice beaches. Carmen was very nice and responsive and made sure our room was ready early and also checked in with us on the day we arrived. We enjoyed the sunsets every night. The condo was clean. The upgraded granite counters were nice. We liked all the extra amenities: kitchen, pool toys, picnic basket, cooler, and beach chairs were a big plus. Only downside to this place was the strange smell each time we entered the condo. It disappeared once we were in for a while. Not sure if the smell can be helped as it may be related to how old the condo is? If someone is very sensitive to smell they may not like it. Regardless it was a minor annoyance and we would definitely stay again.
Thank you for your review and for bringing to my attention the odor. My only wish is that you had told me this when you arrived. I live in close proximity to the studio, and I could have addressed this problem immediately.
As you observed, the place is immaculate and I put a lot of care and attention to providing the best possible for my guests. Had you brought this to my attention it would have been resolved sooner, and I would not be reading about it in the review. You could have called me or the housekeeper. Both numbers are located on the guideline sheet on the kitchen counter. So sorry.
Did not want to leave, perfect place in the perfect location for a Hawaiian getaway.
Overall: I would rent this property again in a second. Great price for what you get, which was A LOT. Great location. Great owner who is openminded and willing to work with you. I seriously felt like we won the lottery with this property. Read more below for specifics.
This property is located within the Lahaina Shores Resort, a lovely hotel with amenities that are available to you. These amenities include a lovely pool, jacuzzi, concierge, and great staff to greet you. In addition, there is a beach just feet from the back door of the hotel, which is really only open to the hotels guests (only a couple of people out there at a time).
The place itself is perfect for a Hawaiian vacation for two. Its location was in walking distance from Front Street, the downtown of Lahaina which provides access to the harbor (tours) and many stores and restaurants. Weather we wanted some shaved ice or a nice breakfast, we walked approximately 6 minutes.
The property itself has a large closet, large bathroom, and a comfortable bed. We were able to cook the majority of the nights due to the provided kitchen appliances (rice cooker, pans, pots, toaster, blender). There were also come boogie boards in the closet, and some floaties prior renters left behind to play with. It was such a great property, and it added to the overall experience knowing we had a safe and homey place to return to at the end of a long day.
I would strongly encourage that you book here, no regrets at all.
Mahalo for the lovely review. I'll share it with the staff as well.
Aloha Oi. Please come again
