About the property

Welcome to KAHAKAI HALE! Our OCEANFRONT studio #403 in the Lahaina Shores Beach Resort is on the fourth floor with a beautiful view of the ocean and the island of Lanai through floor to ceiling glass doors opening to the lanai. Watch the whales in winter and enjoy the lights of the cruise ships anchored in Lahaina harbor year around.

Go downstairs and relax at the pool or get some sun on the beautiful manicured lawn while lying on the chaise lounges provided. A few steps away is a gate to an inviting quiet sandy beach where you can snorkel and swim. Lahaina Shores is within walking distance of the Front Street Lahaina shopping area with a multitude of restaurants, galleries, boutiques, and museums. Right next-door is a quaint mall with many shops, a convenience store, and five restaurants, including one with a popular Hawaiian Luau and show six nights a week.

Our renovation was recently completed. All new furnishings, kitchen, flooring, etc. Our condo features a mirrored entry, tiling throughout the unit, and a fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. The living area has a comfortable King-sized bed, comfortable chairs, a large 50' LED flat panel HDTV and DVD. We also include free wireless high-speed internet access. The lanai is a wonderful place to sit and watch the whales (during whale season) or just to enjoy the view of the turquoise waters and palm trees. Let the soft sounds of the ocean surf lull you to sleep.

Lahaina Shores, with its peaceful elegance, is a lovely alternative to busy, expensive resorts. Once you have stayed here, you will want to come back every year. Frommers describes Lahaina Shores as 'Maui’s hidden jewel of a hotel'. Come stay with us soon!

About Lisa Bucek

Aloha, thanks for the taking time to look at our site. My wife and I were both born and raised with sand between our toes in South Florida always looking for the next adventure, and as a firefighter usually found it. We first ventured to Hawaii on our honeymoon in 2006, and traveled to each island in search of our dream home. We were both captivated by Maui and its lush tropical landscape and endless outdoor activities from the mountains to the ocean. Our studio has been extensively renovated and decorated in a modern décor. We have made this truly our home away from home.

Mahalo Nui Loa,

Cameron and Lisa Bucek

Lisa Bucek purchased this condo in 2013

Why Lisa Bucek chose Lahaina

Lahaina Shores is a charming resort that sits right on the beach, with panoramic views of the Pacific and natures wonders. We chose Lahaina Shores for many reasons; walking distance to shops, surf breaks, restaurants, and numerous historical sites. Additionally, the view is AMAZING!……

Sunsets over the Pacific with the island of Lanai in the background are just plain awesome. You will never get tired of sitting on the lanai listening to the sounds of the surf, looking out at the cruise ships, surfers, paddle boarders, clouds, and rainbows galore! Just walk out the back gate and you are on the beach; now its time to choose your adventure or just simply relax…

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time at Lahaina Shores and enjoyed the view from 403 more than can be expressed. If I ever have the opportunity to go back to Maui, I will definitely want to stay at 403.

We enjoyed the location so much. The weather was perfect. Thanks so much for sharing your piece of paradise.

Awesome !!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great find. After being thwarted by mother nature on several fronts for our anniversary vacation plans (rainy season, hurricanes, and wild fires) we decided to play it safe and travel to Maui. We were fortunate enough that Cameron and Lisa's unit was available on somewhat short notice and our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer.

The condo was just as described and more. It was super clean and had everything you need for a relaxing vacation. You can even enjoy the music from the luau next door in the evening. It's a short walk to downtown Lahaina but still far enough away for some nice peace and quiet.

We usually like to try new places when we travel but this is one place we will definitely consider going back to.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great trip to Lahaina. If you are looking for a quiet place to stay that is within a very short walk to all the action in Lahaina, then this is for you. The unit is very well appointed and taken care of. You can hear the ocean waves from the unit and the lanai is spectacular. If you are looking for a full service resort with elaborate pools, crowds, and pool bar (which we weren't), then this place is probably not for you. The owner is super easy to work with. I highly recommend this place. Matt H, Scottsdale, AZ.

Wonderful and Romantic Hawaiian Getaway. Absolutly Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

You can stop looking around for a place to stay and book it. How many times have you reserved a room and either the pics, amenities, or the location just didn't meet your expectations? Not here. We felt like we hit a home run with the Bucek's piece of paradise. From the second we hit the lobby and and were treated like VIP visitors, there was a vibe that this place was special. When we actually checked in and cracked the door to where we would call home for the next week and a half, it was truly a drop jaw moment. The view was amazing, and everything was clean and truly first class. A/C was one of our must haves and, when needed, we were definitely cool and comfortable. We loved the sounds of crashing waves at night and the morning walks on the beach to get coffee. My wife actually said she liked staying here better than the Grand Wailea.... and she LOVES that place. So with all the beautiful locations in Maui to stay, Lahaina Shores #403 is our new go to. Thanks for an absolutely amazing vacation! We loved everything about this place and not a single negative thing to say. See you next time!! 🌴 🐠🌋

Peaceful, clean paradise

  • 5 of 5

My fiance is very particular about cleanliness. We chose this place because so many others had written positive reviews about it being clean and comfortable. We found those reviews to be very accurate. It was obvious the owners take pride in keeping the condo clean. We didn't even find a speck of dust. The condo is updated and the bed and pillows were very comfortable. We slept soundly every night. It's close enough to the main stretch of town that you can walk but far enough out that you don't get any noise of cars or people passing on foot. The beach chairs, umbrella and guide books all came in handy. I especially loved that the owners wrote their own guide book sharing quick tips on things they enjoy in Maui. I have never been to Maui and I felt like Lahaina was centrally located to all the things I wanted to see. I would definitely stay here again. I prefer this to the stretches of hotel chains we found on Ka'anapali Beach.

Amazing Honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 6 wonderful nights in Lisa's condo for our honeymoon. We knew we wanted to stay at Lahaina shores in a beachfront condo, but booking elsewhere you couldn't pick your specific we headed to VRBO and found Lisa's little gem. So glad we did! The location is amazing, right on the beach, within walking distance to downtown Lahaina. This condo is immaculate with every detail thought of. We made great daily use of the beach chairs, beach bag, and every other item provided in the condo...and there are maker, bullet, blender, all cooking utensils and cookware, beach towels, cooler and so much more. Daily breakfast on the lanai was a perfect start to every day, bbq dinners cooked on the community bbq's which are nicely maintained. Close to so many great restaurants and shopping, and the best Luau right there next door. Best sunsets I've ever seen right from the lanai while enjoying a frozen cocktail in the evenings prepared in the blender in the unit. Overall a total 5 star experience and we can't wait to go back! Mahalo.

Great time with a great place

  • 5 of 5

Nice, new, clean...Perfect. I especially wanted to note how well the kitchen was accommodated. I know we go to hawaii to enjoy the island, but if you like to cook, even on vacation, the kitchen is ready to go with pretty much everything you would need to put together a great meal.
