Why Marge Gumb chose Historic Lahaina Front Street
We traveled to Maui in 1986 and decided to purchase at Lahaina Shores because of its location. Lahaina town is a historic and quaint village that is a very desirable destination for travelors. excellent restaurants and shopping. The harbor has many trips available for you to enjoy.

Couldn't ask for a better location. This condo had everything you need and more. Everything we needed in the kitchen is supplied, even travel coffee cups that we used for the road to Hana. We loved the beach chairs and umbrella. The AC and ceiling fan kept the room comfortable. We used the underground parking and actually thought that was better then parking outside in the sun.
The owners were helpful and responsive, quick to refund the damage deposit.
I could go on and on.
We definitely enjoyed our vacation and would love to return again.
Many many thanks Heath for staying in our condo at Lahaina Shores resort. You are the guests we like to have come back again. We tried to think of everything you might need on your vacation . We are so very happy you enjoyed your stay.

Gorgeous and convenient oceanfront studio
This was our second time at Lahaina Shores and the first time in this unit. The studio was beautiful, clean, and extremely convenient. We would absolutely stay here again.
Location and view:
The building is on the southern end of downtown Lahaina, so it's quiet yet easily walkable to shops and restaurants. The ocean view is unbeatable. We ate our breakfast relaxing on the lanai most mornings—an absolute dream. The outdoor pool is lovely and there's direct access to the beach. The Feast of Lele is next door so you may hear some drumming and cheering in the evening but it's fun; not a disturbance.
The kitchen was clean and modern with stone counters and new appliances. It had most things we needed for meals, including a small set of tableware (plates, bowls, cups, mugs) and flatware. There's a coffee pot, toaster, dishwasher, and microwave, all in good condition. Not sure if the coffee filters were left by previous guests, but we appreciated having them. We would have liked a mixing bowl for pancake batter, and we had to use a drinking glass to beat eggs, but there were sharp knives and a cutting board for chopping. We found a new sponge and dish soap under the sink.
Modern and clean. Shower pressure's fine. The half shower door style is dumb; expect a wet mess every time, but you'll manage. There were 4 rolls of TP, enough for 2 ppl for the week. Only 1 thin bar of soap, so we had to buy more. Best to BYO toiletries—they're expensive on the island. Found some q-tips in the drawer and a box of tissues on the counter, both useful.
Linens and Laundry:
4 bath towels, 2 hand towels (I think), a few washcloths, 2 beach towels. The unit does not include housekeeping. We did laundry once during the week. The washers and dryers take credit cards but you need quarters to buy detergent and softener (only on the fifth floor).
Bedroom / Living room:
Comfortable king size bed. The pillows were too thick for me but not a big deal. There's a small glass table with chairs for eating indoors, which we did when it was too hot. The A/C in the unit is great! There's a vacuum cleaner in the closet which we used to clean up the sand we tracked in. Worked well on the tile floor.
Available for $3.50 a day. Ask for a spot outside. The underground garage smells like sewage. You won't need your car for Lahaina but it's helpful for exploring the island.
We really enjoyed our stay in this wonderful space.
We so much appreciated your comments and the notation that you would stay in our condo the next time you visit Lahaina shores.
We try to think of everything a guest would need and you covered a lot of the amenities. The parking lot in front of the hotel is nicer than the underground parking lot as you mentioned.
The next time we visit we will pick up a mixing bowl .
Please know you are welcome to return again anytime.
Nice base for Maui
The room is good and spacious, the view is fantastic, there are ample supplies for cooking, and it's a close drive to any of the best West Maui beaches.

Please come back again.
