About Amanda and Ken Dawson

We are a couple who currently reside in the Seattle, WA area. We both grew up in Canada, Ken in White Rock, BC and Amanda in Toronto, ON. We own and operate a Wholesale Distribution business here and also own some rental properties throughout the Washington area.

Amanda and Ken Dawson purchased this condo in 2016

Why Amanda and Ken Dawson chose Lahaina

We have visited Maui a few times for family vacations and absolutely love the Island. The laid back charm of Maui is alluring and very relaxing. Not to mention that no matter where you go here you are surrounded by beautiful beaches and breathtaking views of the oceans, mountains and valleys. We stayed ourselves in the Resort of Aina Nalu and it far exceeded any expectations we had. We were incredibly impressed with the grounds, the pools and the unit itself. It was the first family vacation we ever took where after 2 weeks, none of us wanted to leave! We have a family of 5 with kids ranging from 22 to 10 years old and there is something for everyone here, no one had any complaints. We have traveled all over Maui and the Town of Lahaina is by far one of our favorite places! We just felt so at home here. Front St, which is 2 blocks away, is very inviting and has everything you need. Here you can find the Banyon Tree, shops, restaurants (some of which offer really great live music), the Lahaina Harbor and can't forget about the 505 beach. Getting some Gelato or shaved ice and watching the sunset into the Ocean soon became a family tradition. The town and the resort just really captured our hearts and we wanted to own a piece of Paradise for ourselves.

What makes this condo unique

Aina Nalu boasts many wonderful features. The grounds and the pools are exceptionally maintained. You will find beautiful plants, gardens and waterfalls through out. We have gone as a family and as well as just a couple and it is so well suited for both needs. The resort has everything you need including 2 pools which is a huge bonus! Grilling dinner by the pool while the kids swam is how we spent many of our evenings as a family. As a couple, we really enjoyed unwinding in the evenings by hanging out by the pool, relaxing in the hot tub or sitting on the Lanai with a nice glass of wine. The 2 bedroom unit has all the comforts of home and was so well laid out giving everyone their privacy and space. It is almost impossible not to fall into an intense state of relaxation with no worries at all here.

Best Location in Lahaina!

  • 5 of 5

We recently had the good fortune of staying in unit D204 at Aina Nalu and the only bad part of our 11 night stay was when we had to leave for home! This second floor location is in the perfect spot, overlooking the chlorine pool below looking through the privacy protective palm trees swaying in the breeze. The small but private outdoor balcony offers two seats and a table between to sip and taste while relaxing yet still in the convenience of your condo. The beds were comfortable as was the living room furniture and there are plenty of TV's if you are inclined. If there was anything we needed for cooking or playing outdoors we were able to find it located right there in the condo. On site parking is rather expensive ($20/night) as mentioned by the owners (not their choice) but we managed to find free parking on the street in front all but 2 nights and those nights we parked right across the street in the lot for $15 per night. Beware though the street parking is directly under electrical wires where the birds like to sit and do what birds do so the car windows may need a little cleanup in the morning.

If you enjoy hanging out in Lahaina you will love this spot and it is less than a 10 minute drive to Kaanapali when you want to explore that area and its wonderful sandy beaches, nice dining and shopping and great snorkeling. Our favorite eating spots in Lahaina are Fleetwoods for a great dinner meal and a great wine list (expensive) or Captain Jacks for a less expensive meal or just some drinks. We like to sit next to the rail overlooking Front Street and people watch from Jacks. In Kaanapali our favorite spot is the Barefoot Bar at Hula Grill in the Whalers Village complex. Great local entertainment and a casual setting right off the ocean, great for sunsets. Happy Hours everywhere are good deals and are usually around 2 PM - 5 PM.

My wife and I have visited Maui more than a dozen times and have stayed in several locations but none more enjoyable than Aina Nalu, this was our 6th visit to this complex and our first in D204 which is now our favorite condo in Aina Nalu! We hope to be back soon!

Perfect place and a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

For years we had rented larger locations due to family. This year we only had 4 and looked for a place near the beach but with a good pool. I wasn't familiar with Lahaina and didn't know exactly where to stay so took a shot in the dark after reading the review. This place couldn't have been more perfect. It was updated and had plenty of room for our family. We had one family member join us for a few days and the pull out was very comfy. The kids loved the two different pools and the large covered pool chairs. There was also a very large covered area with chairs by the larger pool that allowed for some fun night of cards and relaxing. Every morning we would walk down by the beach in different directions. Took the Ultimate Whale watch tour and saw amazing whales. I was just amazed at how nice it was to walk to everything. The owner was very easy to access and all the instructions were clear.

We have never stayed at a place twice in all our years of travel but would totally go back in a second!

Pros:

Walking distance to everything in town, including store.

The harbor is only 3 blocks away and all the excursions went out of this location.

Amazing pools and a hot tub.

Lots of room

The location had everything we needed for the beach (minus beach towels-but we left a few)!

Cons:

(not many)

The windows are more open glass slats that you can close. It allows for good airflow but easy to hear outside. Bothered me the first day but once I realized that this place was so awesome it didn't matter.

You have to pay $20 a day for parking that is separate. You can park on the street but so much easier to pay up. This is a fee by the condo, not the owner. So fork it over...you in Hawaii and already spending a ton so it won't break the bank.

No beach towels-only large pool towels. Hard to complain when the owner has everything else but it would be a nice addition.

Another Fantastic Stay in D204!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your treasure of a condo with us again! We had a wonderful 10 day stay, this time two of our good friends spent part of the trip with us. Plenty of space for all 4 of us adults and everything went smoothly. When they left they said "we need to do this again, this place is great"! And of course I said, heck yes we will plan to do this again. So until then, thank you for giving folks like us an opportunity to spend time in such a beautiful setting, that includes Lahaina, Aina Nalu, and D204!

Best Wishes to you and Ken.

Wonderful Condo - Best Unit I've stayed in!

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy with this unit!! It was very clean with modern decor. You could tell it was well taken care of. Also, it had everything one could ask for, all necessary kitchen supplies plus more... and everything needed for a day at the beach including lawn chairs, coolers, boogie boards, sand toys etc..! Amanda was awesome to rent from, very friendly and very accommodating! We will rent from this owner again on our next trip to Maui. As for Aina Nalu, we love the location of it and the complex itself, very beautiful! We enjoyed the location of this unit in particular as it is located right in between the 2 pools on the property. 2nd floor is nice as even though you need to use the stairs to haul your stuff up, the units have vaulted ceilings giving a more openness feel. Thanks you for providing us with such a wonderful place to stay!
