Lahaina Studio with Awesome View

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Lahaina, HI, United States

This lovely oceanside apartment is located at the Lahaina Shores Beach Resort Hotel, in downtown Lahaina. Everything is in walking distance: boutiques, museums, harbor, restaurants, museums, the banyan park, tennis courts etc. Your apartment faces the West Maui Mountains. You have private beach access, swimming pool and jacuzzi.

The Space

Everyone who has stayed in the apartment have expressed their satisfaction. I think it's because it's more than a rental unit. I take pride in providing my guests with comfort, cleanliness, and ambience, so that they feel the "Aloha" spirit even in their room.

Guest Access

Private beach access, BBQ Grill, swimming pool, jacuzzi, lawn, keyed entry to neighboring boutiques, galleries, surf school and restaurants.

Interaction with Guests

I manage my unit because I live in Lahaina. When in town, I am on property and am easily accessible.

Getting around

You can get around town on foot! What great walks you can take all over town and in neighborhoods. There is also public transportation at the wharf (walking distance) that will take you all over Maui for a couple of bucks.

Other Things to Note

There are live shows, performances, fantastic sunset dinner restaurants and cruises. Get a hold of the local paper in advance on line, or when you get here to find out what's going on. Lahaina is a real town with an incredible history of missionaries, whaling and sugarcane pineapple stories. Go the the library and browse through the hundred of books found on any of these topics.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My husband and I enjoyed the Lahaina studio apartment with its lanai and view of the hills. We would happily stay there again. The apartment is attractive and well maintained. The resort itself is lovely, with 24 hour attendants at the desk, a nice outdoor swimming pool, and beautiful water views from the lobby and grounds. Just beyond the pool and out the back gate and you are on the beach. Parking is available for resort guests. This is very nice since the apartment is close to Lahaina shops and restaurants. We got a chance to meet Carmen, the owner of the unit, who is a delight and was very responsive to my calls and e-mails. I was able to attend one of her yoga/fitness classes, which was also a very positive experience.

  • I stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Maui. The location was superb. I could walk to the downtown in Lahaina and avoid all the parking hassle. Also the view from a balcony was nice too, so beautiful mountain range and clouds. My stay in Carmen's place was great. Definitely, I will visit again.

    Response from Carmen:

    Dear Jungsoon,
    Your stay was too short. Please come again soon. Thank you for being so neat and tidy.
    Aloha oi!

  • We had a lovely stay in Carmen's place! The location is great, with direct access on the beach, very quiet.
    We had the opportunity to meet Carmen who is very friendly and cares about her guests.
    The flat is very neat, well equipped and you can even cook if you like. There is a parking place included which is very convenient in Lahaina. There are some nice restaurants and a few shops near door and you can walk 15min to reach the city center.
    I highly recommend Carmen's place and I will for sure go back to her place in my next trip to Lahaina!

    Mahalo Alex for the lovely review. You are welcome anytime. Aloha oi!

  • My daughter and her boyfriend were travelling in Maui. As airbnb hosts as well, my daughter knows what to expect. Could be really great, could ok. But at the end of the day, this is someone's pride and joy whether or not a guest seems to think so. At about 1 am Chicago time, I get a text from my daughter that says, "This place is amazing." And my daughter has really good taste. Thank you for a great place that made a memory for this trip.

    Thank you, Tamara, for your review. Alex took good care of my place as if it had been her own. You raised her well, and I am glad everything worked out.

  • Carmen's condo in Lahaina was a great place to relax. The place was clean, the check-in service was quick and easy. We appreciated the wrap-around balcony with views of both the mountains and the ocean. It was great to have all of the beach gear available (chairs, towels, umbrella, snorkel gear, etc.), and the beach being just steps out the door is a great plus. Carmen does herself a disservice by advertising this as a studio, this is a very larger one bedroom, with a large living room and kitchen, a large bathroom, large wrap-around balcony, and a big walk-in storage closet. We loved everything about the condo. We were sorry not to meet Carmen.

  • The suite was perfect for us! 2 friends traveling, looking for some nightlife. We really enjoyed the location, within walking distance to the shops and restaurants in Lahaina. The beds were comfy and the accommodations very clean. I'd certainly recommend.

  • My wife and I loved our stay here. Carmen went above and beyond for us; all of her communication was really helpful and clear. The location in Lahaina is unbeatable. It's close enough to walk to everything, but still quiet. The unit was immaculately clean, too, and the closet full of beach gear was a nice bonus.
