About Fred, Luba & Leah

Fred and Luba purchased Suite A404 at The Ka'anapali Shores Resort because of how much they and their guests both loved Suite A103. The same floor plan as their groundfloor 2 bedroom, the view is what sets both unit 404 (and 204) apart. The elevated height of the Lanai's and the privacy of facing the outer courtyard instead of the pool allows for lovely beach, ocean and palm studded lawn views.

The Ka'anapali Shores resort has maintained a reputation of being an affordable yet upscale family vacation destination. With easy beach access, exquisite pools and ocean view restaurant, The Ka'anapali Shores is sure to become your families favorite vacation spot destination as well.

In 2015, Fred and Luba will be retiring and their daughter Leah, who grew up in the vacation rental industry, will transitions to full time manager of their units. We are located on island in case of emergency.

Why Fred, Luba & Leah chose Lahaina

We chose Ka'anapali Shores Resort for the quality of the units and proximity to the ocean front available when we purchased our units.

What makes this condo unique

All of our units are in the same end of the same building and 3 of the 4 are in the same stack that makes it very convenient for families wanting to have a reunion can stay close together.


Guestbook comments from the manager

Fred, Luba and soon Leah we own and manage these Maui condos advertised here. After many years in San Francisco having a clothing store " luba Designs " we moved to Maui to start a new life.

After selling the business we decided to venture into a vacation rental business since we love helping and serving guests, that become our extended family and friends.

We love what we do and our mission is " the best location for the best price" . Saving money for our guests and at the same time offering quality accommodations is what makes our guests happy.

Please share your thoughts about your vacation and tell us when you want to come back to this beautiful Island of Maui.

Love to see you here again !

Great views and nice resort

  • 4 of 5

Had a great stay in this condo. Is a good value but could definitely use some updating and deep cleaning. This didn’t bother us as much since we were out and about exploring The island most of our stay. The beds were very comfortable and kitchen was fully stocked. Having 2 balconies was nice and the views were excellent. The resort is very nice and the pool areas and restaurant were great. Location is amazing, short drive to Lahaina and Kaanapali beach where we went several times. The grocery store is right across the street as well as several more restaurants and breakfast spots. We took our stroller everywhere and the resort was very kid friendly.

Our biggest complaint was that a pack n play was promised to be in the unit on our arrival and it was no where to be found ( after over 16 hours of travel with a 1 year old). We called the owner several times with no return call and finally got a hold of one of the maintenance guys as it was 6 pm local time and the office was closed. He brought it over 1.5 hours later and it was very dirty, had to use a pack of antibacterial wipes to clean it to lay our then screaming baby down finally. My advice is to double check or triple check that there will be one in the unit if needed.

We paid for the late check out which was nice since we took the red eye flight home and that was worth it to not have to pack up until late in the afternoon before we left for the airport.

All in all we enjoyed our stay and would rent through this company again. Gave it 4 stars due to the value, location and resort but it is by no means a 4 Star luxury condo.

Convenient stay close to everything we like.

  • 5 of 5

The sound of the ocean lulled us to not leave. Very restful.

Well equipped kitchen was convenient, proximity to Times , Fish Market and Farmers market.

We'll choose it again in the future.

Good value, great location

  • 3 of 5

The Kaanapali Shores Resort itself is an excellent property, great location, great pools, good shops and offerings. The restaurant was also great food, location, good happy hours, excellent service. Towel exchange was very helpful (plenty of towels), and never had issues getting deck chairs. Some people seem surprised that there is no beach to speak of, but in this section of Kaanapali it never has had much of a beach, but access to beaches are not far away. As for the room itself, we feel we paid an appropriate price for the age/condition of the room, it served us well functionally with two teenagers. As I messaged to Leah privately, they need to look at hiring a new cleaning crew or having it cleaned differently. It seemed as though the room gets pretty heavy usage, and not enough thorough cleaning week to week. Leah was super responsive and would have had the cleaning crew come again, but my recommendation to her was to have them do a a more thorough job every once in awhile so the dirt/dust doesn't build up.

Perfect location for our honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

GREAT space! Everything we needed! Corner apartment with view of the ocean. All the beach toys, chairs, towels you could hope for! All the toiletries from a normal hotel. Wonderful resort with beautiful pools hot tubs lighting water sports shops etc. extremely close to Lahaina and to a beautiful drive up the coast. Wonderful easy to reach hosts!! I couldn’t recommend it more highly! If we go back this is where we will stay!

Nice place, great sunsets!

  • 4 of 5

Wish it had a real beach, had to drive to a beach. Free shuttle was nice but did not go far enough to Kaanapali Shores. Pools were nice and condo quiet, liked beach equipment in condo we could use and the washer/dryer in condo😁

Deteriorating and outdated

  • 2 of 5

The windows were warped and never closed fully - you can plainly see the gaps. When it rained, water would come in.

The tile was broken and dirty, both on the floors and the trim.

The bathrooms were old and dirty. I am not sure how the renovation was done to this unit but somehow both bathrooms share this weird, lit ceiling (that you can see the dead bugs in).

There are ant traps everywhere (including ON the kitchen counters).

The doors were warped and in dire need of paint.

The air conditioners are filthy and as such, the ceiling around them is stained black.

The patio furniture is stained and the height of the chairs don't match the height of the table making it uncomfortable to sit outside and eat.

I was so disappointed in this unit. We complained to the Aston who said that since it is privately owned, it is not maintained to their standards.

There was no real sandy beach (although this may be because it was winter??) so we had to go elsewhere to swim in the ocean.

I wish I could post photos to show you how bad it was.

Pros- the location (close to the market and fish market).
