Why robin (Binky) Ritchie 808-276-7474 chose Lahaina

Lahaina Shores was voted best Resort on Maui. I have lived in so many condos and homes in West Maui that I have a check list of my preferences. Fast elevators, concrete structure and 24 hour front desk.

Lahaina Shores has the best view of the West Maui Mountains and valleys. The moyntains prot

We always got a good response from clients that stayed in this building and they come back to Lahaina Shores.

upgradex libby and grounds.

You could stay here and not need a car.

Beach front. Friendly Front Desk. Hotel amenities at a condo price.

On the bus route.

I like cement buildings for their heat and sound insulation. Handy discount parking.

Walking distance to churches.

You could stay here and not rent a car. Many visitors at Lahaina Shores forgo renting a car.

The 6th floor units have extra tall ceilings and a soaring view of the West Maui mountains.

Nice lanai with small table and 2 dining chairs plus a comfy lounging chair with ottoman.

Air conditioned.

Good security and friendly staff.

Incredible consistent weather , year round.

I lived in many areas of West Maui and I decided that the lushness and wind of Kapalua and Napili districts of Lahaina did not suit me. I like reliable weather to BBQ or garden in and the calmness of the ocean in the historic district of Lahaina.

Even in Kaanapali and Honokowai I missed the history and charm of downtown Lahaina.

First class oceanfront dining absolutely next door at Pacifico's and I'O s. in the retail 505 Marketplace

Walk to surf lessons.

Walk to the historic district.

What makes this condo unique

Sunny Historic Lahaina has the Best Weather on the Planet.

Maui is famous for it's micro climates.

This spot gets 1/2 the annual rainfall that North Kaanapali gets and gets very little wind. We get 1/4 of the annual rainfall that Napili and Kapalua receive .

We are walking distance to the larges Banyan Tree in the United States.

Pool and Jacuzzi.

Bicycle Parking.

Basketball and tennis courts one block away.

Beautiful view of sunrises over the West Maui Mountains.

This unit has an arch over the lanai and extra tall ceilings.

My unit has an excellent selection of Hawaiian reference and historical books for you to enjoy.

The same developer built a complex next door which has Pacifico's and restaurants. Next door to a general and sundries store.

Also next door to my favorite luau the Feast of Lele.

My store Binky's will be opening September 15th, 2015 with local crafts, hand dyed yarn, bead supply, arts, sea glass and a lot more @ 626 Front. two blocks from Lahaina Shores. You can visit me there.

We love this area so much we live in the neighborhood and we hope our condo is what you are looking for

At Home in Paradise

Great value and great location. Perfect proximity to Entertainment on front street and great pool and beach front property. The resort staff were very freindly and helpful. The unit included the use of beach umbrella, mats, towels, chairs, snorkels and fins. Some of the furnishings were a little dated but functional. Check out Betties Restruant next door it had some great dinner deals.

Excellent Location, Beautiful Sunsets

  • 5 of 5

The condo is located just steps away from all that Lahaina has to offer. The owner was incredibly welcoming and provided recommendations for all that we needed to make our stay extra comfortable, including grocery stores, beaches, etc. Not only is it close to the Lahaina nightlife and activities, but it was also easy to access from the airport and in traveling to beaches up north and even the Road to Hana (all by car).

The kitchen was fully stocked and the shared laundry space on the floor was incredibly clean and easy to use!

Mountain View

Cozy space just steps away from the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Robin's home in the Lahaina Shores Resort. The studio had everything we needed to get ready for each day and to relax when we needed a space to recover. The resort is located right on the beach where the water was perfectly warm and calm. When we were done with the salt water we could retreat to the resort's pool and spa just as quickly. Downtown Lahaina was a quick 10 minute walk away by sand or street and we were right next to our luau at the Feast at Lele. I would definitely recommend this spot for anyone coming to stay in Lahaina and explore Maui!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Robin's for 3 nights. The location is ideal, ocean front and in walking distance to everything. The room was clean and stocked with everything that we needed, including beach chairs. The front desk people were super nice too and elevators were fast. We will definitely stay again when visiting Maui.
