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 West Maui

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.

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.

Nice property.

  • 5 of 5

John and Tacy described their property accurately. Lahaina Shores is located in a quiet, convenient area of Lahaina. Everyone from John and Tacy to the front desk and other staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. The convenience of dining and shopping in walking distance as well as laundry services on the premises are definite pluses. The view, of course, is amazing. John and Tacy were extremely easy to work with and very interested in making sure the property was all that they represented. We would not hesitate to recommend this property to our friends or relatives. Mahalo John and Tacy.

A perfect nest

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent our last 3 nights of our 2 week Hawaii vacation at this property.

We loved it! Small but not too small, we had plenty of room to move around and were very comfortable there.

Hearing the waves crash while sleeping is so wonderful. The view from the lanai, stunning. The beach, perfect.

Location, walking to the action but distant enough to be quite and restful. The building is well maintained, the staff very friendly and professional.

We would stay here again!

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

It had been 13 years since we've been to Maui, and that was with our then-teenaged children! We were looking forward to this trip, to some relaxation. This condo at Lahaina Shores was just perfect! I'm a clean freak and the condo was very clean. It's a studio unit but we never felt confined to a small space. It was well-equipped with basic eating and cooking utensils, linens, and even some beach chairs and toys. The view from the balcony/lanai pretty much defies description, it was just amazing. We enjoyed breakfast each morning from the balcony and enjoyed the sound of the waves at night. The condo grounds are very well-maintained, the staff very friendly and helpful. It's a short walk to downtown Lahaina for restaurants and shopping. There are rental places a few doors down from the condo, we rented a kayak twice. We are already talking about returning next year!

Beautiful but always room to improve

  • 4 of 5

To properly frame this review we have to accept as baseline that Maui is amazing. You can't go wrong staying here and John was great. My fiancé and I are already planning our return trip and chances are good we'd return. My true rating would be 3.5 stars but since you can’t give half stars 4 makes much more sense than 3.

There are a lot of places to stay in Maui in this price range, however, so let’s be picky.


You have to decide if you want to be walking distance to all the great shops and restaurants on Front Street OR walking distance to a great beach that you can snorkel at. With this condo you get walking distance to Front Street. The beach here is small, barely enough to lay out on, and there’s no snorkeling. Note that the great snorkeling beaches nearby seem to be surrounded by the big hotel chains which is something we try to avoid and why we picked this location.

The Room:

Yes the view really is that amazing. It’s worth spending more for it. Just do it, you’re on vacation. Many other rooms have upgraded from a carpet to tile floor and it’s about time to do the same here. Carpet at a beach condo just isn’t a good idea.

The bed is big and comfortable. The kitchen is well appointed.

Our biggest gripe was that the room wasn’t well equipped. There was one camping char, a broken umbrella, two beach towels, two shower towels and 1.5 rolls of toilet paper. We stay at a lot of AirBnBs and they tend to have a closet full of extra towels and toilette paper. Beach rentals generally have a few chairs and other gear. We had to do a laundry (and buy a thing of Tide since there was none) twice to have clean towels. Small in the grand scheme of things, of course, but it does matter.


Really friendly front desk staff. Easy and inexpensive parking. Nice pool and perfect spot to watch the sun set. There is a secret back door to the restaurants next door; Betty’s has an epic weekend brunch and Pacifico’s has a great happy hour (try their special drink).

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your feedback. We were not aware our beach gear had taken such a beating and will replace everything promptly - should always be two beach chairs, a (non-broken!) umbrella, and a cooler. We strive to continually keep our unit in great shape for guests. Later this month the closets are being completely rebuilt at significant cost to address an issue with a pesky sliding door that refuses to stay on track. We have considered the issue of the flooring; interesting that some guests actually prefer the carpet and return to our unit because of it - of course we have it professionally cleaned regularly. Again, thanks for your feedback and glad you enjoyed the "Magic of Maui."

Great location, great view

  • 5 of 5

The condo is just as described. The resort employees are very helpful and cordial. The parking was great as it was in a covered parking garage with an attendant during the day, so the extra fee is worth it. Easy to walk downtown, easy to just swim right off the beach, and easy to just relax and swim in the pool. The condo is pleasant and the chairs on the balcony are high enough to see over the railing without having to stretch your neck. Would recommend for anyone wanting to enjoy nearby restaurants yet feel like you are away from the tourists. We highly recommend the Feast at Lele luau right next door. It is well worth the expense, the food and show are very well done. We also took the Atlantis submarine tour where you actually dive to the bottom of the sea floor in a submarine, it was way cool. And last but not least, if you have the time, and want to see a very good magic show - dinner and magic, visit Warren & Annabelle's. It was a hoot.

Condo was clean and well maintained. They had beach towels and an umbrella and cooler available. We used the cooler on the beach and when we drove the road to Hana. If you drive to Hana, go the entire 360 drive, the west side is so different than the east.
