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.
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.
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.
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.
Guests are expected to leave the unit in the same condition they found it. No smoking on the premises, which includes the balcony. There is a rubbish container next to the elevators.
We stayed for 3 nights at Lahaina Shores Beach Resort and had a perfect time. Carmens apartment is clean, well-appointed and a haven to come back to after a big day of exploring the wonders of Maui. The front desk staff were very helpful, parking was so easy and the beach access superb. We loved being so close to Lahaina shops and restaurants. Thanks Carmen for a beautiful stay.
We had a really good stay in Carmens suite at Lahaina Shores Beach resort.
The place was as described in the listing and conveniently located near the activity hub of Lahaina
The pool and beach access were a big plus for my 4-yr old
Great location with an easy walk to all that Lahaina has to offer. Nice resort style room with kitchen that allows for eat in option. Carmen was a good communicator during booking and during our stay. Parking on site and a 24 hour concierge is a bonus.
We had a lovely stay at Carmen's condo! Everything was as described and close to town. We would definitely stay here again if in Maui. Thank you Carmen!
Had a wonderful stay at Carmen's! It was perfect for our needs, and Carmen was fantastic about communication before our arrival. She provided exactly what we needed--towels, beach towels, and all the necessary kitchen utensils to make our own breakfasts (to save a little $$). We also loved spending time at the pool and hot tub, and enjoyed chatting up the friendly neighbors while lounging in the pool area. The location was great--within walking distance to town, and parking was convenient and affordable. The mountain view from the room was absolutely beautiful. Would definitely stay again. Thanks Carmen!
What a gem this was in Lahaina! My fiance and I stayed for 1 night and wished we could have stayed for another week. Carmen upgraded us to a 1 bedroom suite and it was spectacular. We loved the open feeling of the room, the views off the wrap around deck and all the accessories included with the rental.
While there isn't a wide beach in front of the property, we found a little patch of sand not far from the gate and enjoyed some Corona's while staring off on the horizon. The pool was clean and refreshing with plenty of seating. There's a great breakfast spot next door (Betty's Beach Cafe) and the place is less than a 10 minute walk to downtown.
Carmen was a terrific host and personally welcomed us once we arrived in Lahaina. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
This was a fantastic place to stay! Located just before shops and restaurants on Lahaina’s busy Front St, it was a perfect spot to stroll through town, grab a bite to eat or drink or catch the sunset. Carmen was delightful and helpful throughout the process. She called beforehand to make sure we had everything and made check in super easy. The room was clean, spacious and had a beautiful view of the West Maui Mountains. We were amazed how quiet it was. We had the best sleep here during our stay on the island. The patio had large screen door, which we kept open all night to let the cool breeze in, if you’re not down with AC.
A very trite quibble we had (the only one) was the outdoor Jacuzzi closed between 9pm and 9am (which, quite honestly, is pretty common at hotels or resorts). However, summertime in Maui is hot, so the best times to relax in 100+ degree water is early in the morning or later in the evening. We were really hoping to enjoy the stars after dinner, but alas. As I said, very trite.
Overall, this was a great price for a fantastic place. We highly recommend!
