"My husband and I just returned from Vilma's condo today, and I needed to write a rave review immediately. We stayed for 6 nights and really couldn't have imagined a better place to stay. While the condo itself is perfect and impeccable, the location is what makes this absolutely amazing. I've visited Maui before and stayed on Kaanapali beach, but I enjoyed this location even more. It is right on Front street - the main road for shopping and restaurants in Lahaina, but it's just far enough away where you aren't in the thick of it. It is a very short and enjoyable walk to all the liveliness of Front street. There are also a few bars and restaurants right next door, as well as a Luau!
The condo itself is stunning. Everything is updated and works well, and the kitchen is stocked with all the cooking utensils you'll need. Traveling so far (from Chicago) is stressful, so it was a huge relief when we arrived to a gorgeous, well functioning condo with a VERY comfy bed! The two balconies are absolutely perfect - one faces the beautiful mountains, and the other on the side gives you a gorgeous look down the beach and ocean. The ocean is of course a fantastic view, but drinking coffee and watching the sun rise over the mountains was something I'll always remember. Lahainia Shores itself is very well run, with more quiet, respectful guests and very friendly staff.
There is a small pool and hot tub, as well as beach access, but the beach is not ideal for sun bathing and swimming. However, you can still set up a chair or walk a little ways down the beach and set up there. I personally preferred it to the busy and crowded Kaanapali beach, but we didn't find ourself doing a ton of sunbathing during our stay.
This property is a MUST stay! We will hopefully be back one day!"
