About Marg Gumb

I We currently live in Laguna Beach Ca. and have been coming to Lahaina Shores since 1986 with our family. We like the area because you can walk to down town and Lahaina Harbor in 5 minutes.

Exactly what we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

This location offered everything we wanted and we were not disappointed. We wanted to be in Lahaina area, but wanted more privacy than the big noisy resorts. We wanted to leisurely enjoy our coffee in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening on the balcony with a beautiful view. We wanted to be right on the water with privacy and sleep with the door wide open. We wanted to be able to walk to the harbor and to some fine dining, along with a dose of the typical tourist shops. You could get by without a car, but Lahaina is a great central location for day trips to all areas of the island. The parking with our unit (small fee) was in a garage conveniently located next door. You could not find a more peaceful oasis right next to all of the action, a great combination. We went past a few other VRBO locations that I had considered and then I knew that we had made the right choice for us. The unit came with tons of ancillary beach stuff in the closet, but we did not use most of it. But if you wanted anything beach related, it was there. The cooler bag was great for our day trips. The refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, and toaster, were all we needed. The king bed was very comfortable. The concierge was very helpful too, provided a lot of useful local info, We thought we would not use it, but washers and dryers are located on the floor next to the elevator, very convenient. In summary, we had high expectations for this unit based on the criteria above, and they were definitely met! Location, privacy, beachfront, 6th floor view, close to everything and centrally located for day trips. We are an active senior couple and this trip was to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We had a great time and would definitely stay here again.

Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Where to start?!?!?! This place is amazingly perfect! The view alone gets 5 Stars! And a fabulous location! Everything we could have asked for and more!

We just got home from our Lahaina trip and already wish we could go back. Marg's condo was the perfect home away from home. Everything we needed was included in the unit, linens, multiple beach towels, beach chairs, cooler, boogie boards, floaties, (we actually added a couple to the collection ;)) real refrigerator (not a hotel mini fridge), microwave, blender, coffee maker, dishes, the works! It was just like being at home. We never used the available house keeping services since the unit also had a vacuum and swiffer mop. It was quick and easy to clean up after ourselves if we needed. The condo is set up very nicely with a nice sitting area and nice balcony that overlooks the Resort lawn, pool and beach. The bed and tv set-up made for easy relaxing after days of exploring Lahaina and the surroundings. And the AC and ceiling fan worked great to cool off the condo quickly and keep everything at a consistent temperature.

The location of the resort couldn't be more perfect! Nestled at the south end of town it was very quiet but still close enough to town not to need a car. About a 5 minute walk and you're right downtown. Right next door to the condo is a great little shopping area with a general store, surf board rentals, few bars and restaurants, gift shops and art shops that were always relatively quiet and easy to get a table at since they are away from the hustle and bustle of the main downtown area. Betty's Beach Cafe was fantastic for easy meals and a great happy hour! (Two happy hours actually!) Their mudpie on the dessert menu is fantastic!

The beach, pool and hot tub at the Resort were all amazing. Never over crowded or busy since the Resort sits by itself at the edge of town there was never anyone on the beach that wasn't staying at the resort. The resort beach was nice and clean and protected by a little reef, private lawn with lots of lawn chairs and a nice pool and hot tub just steps from the water. The electronic key gates around the property made for a very safe feeling and we always felt right at home with the friendly staff and other vacationers.

Everyone in our party who stayed at other properties were all jealous of our condo and plan to stay there on their next visit to Maui.

We will be back for sure! Thanks for the lovely accommodations!

Perfect View-Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed 14 nights at this condo. The views are priceless and the convenience to the pool, beach and eateries is the best. A great number of activities are within walking distance (5-10 minutes). The condo was clean and had all the things we needed to have some meals there instead of at the restaurants from time to time. We will definitely be back.Stayed long enough to have two different cruise ships port directly in front of the condo, yet far enough away not to take away from the overall beauty of Maui's Pacific Ocean....Whales were active and could be seen and heard breaches periodically..

Owner's Response: Thank you Tim for writing your review. The guests that are booked in the future will be so pleased to read your thoughts. It is always a pleasant surprise to see the cruise ships anchored in front of lahainashores. Past reviewers have stated the 6th floor is the best for whale watching as you mentioned. We are so very happy that you stayed at our condo and truly hope you come back again. Marge

Amazingly beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Every time I enter the room my breath gets taken away. First is the view. Wow!!! My eyes immediatly are drawn to the palm trees, the ocean and the Island of Lanai. Second is the room. Modestly furnished and set up perfectly for a wonderful stay. A very comfortable queen size bed, end tables , dresser, tv,sofa bed, coffee table, full sized fridge, toaster,coffee maker, blender, microwave, utensils,dishes and cups. Although there is no kitchen, you will find you don't really need one with Bettys Beach Cafe right next door. On the Lanai there are chairs and a small table and lots of water floaties and boogie boards. Sand chairs and an umbrella are in the full sized closet. A large walk in shower are in the spacious bathroom. Out side on the beautiful grounds of the Lahaina Shores Resort is a hot tub, swimming pool and lots of lawn chairs to soak up the sun. Walk through the gate and you are standing on the beach with the ocean lapping at your feet. There are lots of restaurants nearby and the town of Lahaina and the harbor are within walking distance. Almost no need for a car. The owners are so accommodating and friendly. You really don't want to pass this up. Looking forward to another year here.

Owner's Response: Aloha Sue, I appreciate the detailed review you took the time to write. Future travelers will also be happy to read your kind words about our place. The bed is a California king and many reviews have mentioned how comfortable it is. Being able to walk downtown and access the beach so easily are great assets . You are the kind of guests we appreciate. We will see you next year! Thank you! Marge

Where do you live?

Fabulous sunset views and a convenient Lahaina location make for a winning vacation stay.

  • 4 of 5

Since our first stay at the Lahaina Shores the the early 1980’s, we have enjoyed its location (within walking distance of many things Lahaina) as well as its ocean front rooms with their great views of the Lahaina harbor and the island of Lanai. Whale watching from your lanai while drinking a morning coffee, or perhaps a sunset cocktail is always a treat.

While it doesn’t have full kitchen facilities like many of the other studio units, it does have a full refrigerator, toaster, and microwave.

This rental is a great value for those who enjoy the island of Maui.
