About the property

Remodeled Oceanview Studio On The Beach

Our newly-remodeled (August 2013), fourth-floor studio at Lahaina Shores offers breathtaking ocean views in the spectacular setting of the Maui coastline. From your private lanai, enjoy the turquoise waters, island of Lanai, and the whales (in winter). Relax as you enjoy beautiful sunsets, and sleep to the sound of the ocean lapping the beach.

Lahaina Shores is a small, classic hotel condominium resort, with just seven floors and 199 units. Entering the airy lobby through arched colonnades, you’ll be struck by her old-fashioned charm. Here is a plantation-style Maui resort, echoing a time when comfort and style were king. In addition to the beautiful beach, a pool and whirlpool spa with ample sunbathing area and lounge chairs are available for your use.

Just a short walk from the resort, Lahaina town is an ideal vacation destination. As the original capital of Hawaii, the town is rich in history and has several museums in addition to a wide variety of galleries, shops, and restaurants. Choices for outdoor activities are endless with snorkeling gear, surf and paddleboards, kayaks and bicycles all available for rent. The island of Maui has over 15 championship golf courses; two are just five minutes away at Kaanapali.

Our unit offers a new king-sized bed, fully-equipped kitchen, i-phone/pod docking station, and beach towels, lounge chairs, and a cooler for your beach excursions. Unit 427 has everything you need for your perfect Maui getaway.

About John and Tacy

John and Tacy first traveled to Maui together in 2011 and immediately fell in love with the overwhelming natural beauty of the island, its history and people. John proposed to Tacy high atop Haleakala that trip and they married shortly thereafter. Currently living in Maine, they visit Maui whenever they can.

John and Tacy purchased this studio in 2013

Why John and Tacy chose Lahaina

Lahaina Shores is a charming low-rise hotel condominium right on the the beach, with stunning views. It is just on the edge of Lahaina town, the original capital of Hawaii, full of history as well as shops and restaurants galore.

What makes this studio unique

The view, the view, and did we mention, the view?

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed the stay very much. Since I am from the Midwest, I have never experienced such wonders. The views and the room were wonderful. Watching the luaus from the balcony and the big cruise ship come in was tremendous. The ocean waves breaking in the evening and early morning were very pleasing.

I would stay with you again if we are ever able to go to Hawaii, and we will be recommending this relaxing vacation condo to our close friends and colleagues.

My wife and I were totally satisfied with our stay. John was very accommodating could not have ask for a nicer place to stay. Thank you John for helping to making our 28th wedding anniversary such a wonderful memory . I would recommend this to anyone and if we are fortunate enough to make a trip back to Maui this would be first on our list of places to stay.

The PERFECT condo in Maui

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a portion of our honeymoon trip to Hawaii and wow, wow, wow! This condo is perfect for 2 people and RIGHT on the water. Every night, we slept with the sliding doors open (they have a screen) and listened to the waves. It was the right size room for us and great to have a kitchen to make breakfast, lunch and drinks. Easy walking distance to all of the shops and food on Front Street. After almost a week in Maui, I definitely recommend staying in Lahaina - it's the best location to get around the rest of the island. Also, if you're on the fence between a condo and a hotel...don't be. For the price, this is by FAR and away the more beautiful/better deal. I can't get over the sunsets and the sounds of the waves. If we come back to Maui, we will absolutely stay in this condo again. Thanks for helping us have such a memorable honeymoon - we'll never forget Lahaina Shores #427 :)

Beautiful view and great location

  • 5 of 5

The unit is definitely small (has more of a hotel room feel than your typical VRBO), but if you don't need a lot of space, this place is perfect. The view is gorgeous, and the building is just a short walk from all of the restaurants, shops, etc. on Front Street. Great for a single person or a couple who don't plan to spend a ton of time in their room, but like to come home to a nice, beautiful view. It's also convenient that check-in and check-out is through the front desk, like a hotel.

This is a great location within walking distance of everything Lahaina has to offer.

  • 5 of 5

You are literally right on the ocean and not in a crowded resort with 1000's of other people. The entire premises are immaculate and well maintained. Our unit had everything we could possible ever need to use. We will definitely stay here again and again.

We stayed at the condo for one week, that was not long enough. We were very impressed at how beautiful and serene it was. The condo was very well equipped with anything you might need. We would definitely stay again.

Oceanfront paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location and views of the ocean. Hearing the waves at night was so wonderful.

The place was small but perfect for the two of us. Any more than 2 people would be too much.

The resort that it was in was great as well. Felt like you had a private beach, was not too busy and was a quick walk to downtown Lahaina with all of the restaurants and shops. We would come back for sure.
