Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Lahaina - Lahaina Oceanfront Treasure

Oceanfront Location On Front Street In Lahaina, Maui, HI

Lahaina Oceanfront Treasure is just that! From the outside this looks like an old historic house. We are in the National Historic boundary of Lahaina so we desire to preserve some of the history and culture. Once you open the gate the 'treasure' is astounding! The house and Ohana (guest house) has been completely refurbished. Inside you see that you have the only private beach lagoon in West Maui.

Located on Front Street in Lahaina, you are just steps away from all of the best art galleries, restaurants and shops. The Banyan Tree park and The Lahaina Boat Harbor just a quarter mile away. Ka'anapali and Kapalua Beach resorts are a short drive to the north.

Lahaina was the capital of the Kingdom of Hawaii during the 1800s. In the 1900s Lahaina became the center of the global whaling industry with many sailing ships located anchored in its waterfront. Today, Front Street has been ranked one of the 'Top Ten Greatest Streets' by the American Planning Association.

Lahaina Oceanfront Treasure's main house has three Bedrooms, 1 full and 2 half baths, and an office. The fully equipped gourmet kitchen is right on the water! You will LOVE to cook here! This home has the amenities of flat screen T.V.s in the living room and each bedroom, high speed wireless internet, business center, stereo, DVD & VCR players. The Ohana has its own kitchen, bathroom and outdoor lanai. There is a flat screen TV, DVD and CD players. Outside there is a wrap around stone wall with an outdoor shower.

There is a wonderful patio, equipped with a gas BBQ for your relaxation. There is a large, beautiful hot tub. You will be amazed at the gorgeous sunsets!!!! Be sure to stay after the sun has set because then the sun rays reflect underneath the clouds to bring you an absolutely fabulous, colorful romantic experience.

During the whale season you will see whales playing just a few hundred yards off shore! And yes, you will see rainbows!

The home comes withstand up paddle boards, surfboards and kayaks which you can launch right from the house. We also have bicycles and fishing gear. Protected by the reef, the water here is quite shallow and safe. Baby Beach (so called because mothers take their children to this safest of all beaches) is only about a hundred yards away so you can just wade or walk there!!!

Permit Number: STWM 2013/0008

HI Tax Id No.: W81338278-01

Please note that the entire property is rented to one group at a time. The maximum occupancy of the main house is six guests including children over age 2 years.

About Eddene McNamara

Aloha we are a fun couple that loves the life we have here in Maui. Every day we are blessed by beautiful sunrises, gorgeous flowers and warm friendly people.

We are a blended family, Paul has three adult sons, Eddene has three adult daughters and a granddaughter. We live in a very small home in Lahaina. When the kids come to visit it gets pretty crowded so back in 2007 we decided to buy the house next door so that the family could be close by but have enough space. The house was built in 1937 and needed a lot of TLC. It has been a labor of love.

Since the house is often without family present it only made since to start offering it for other families to enjoy for their vacations. We find so much pleasure in meeting people from all over the world and sharing the aloha of Maui.

Come join us for happiness and relaxation with many fun things to do.

Warmest Mahalo,

Paul & Eddene

The moment you open the gate, your personal ocean view greets you!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a glorious week here for our destination wedding. The property was even better than the pictures! This property also is the only one on this stretch of Front Street homes with ocean access. The private cove has very little sand beach, but it really does afford you private access to this stretch of the ocean. From this point, anyone at least 5 feet tall can walk all the way out to the reef break (100 yards out), and all along the front to Baby Beach (about 1/4 mile North). It was great for kayaking and great snorkeling for us first-timers--we saw Humu and other fish, urchins, sea cucumber, eels. And we had a very large sea turtle getting his evening snack from our rock wall!

The Ohana House was perfect for the honeymooners' privacy, while still allowing inclusion as desired with the rest of the family in the main house.

This property has wall AC units in every bedroom and in the main house living room--definitely a must for those of us not used to humid climates.

We had walkable access to Lahaina Town on Front Street for awesome restaurants and shopping. We had driveable access within 20 minutes to the entire North West coast from Lahaina to Kapalua, for luaus, sand beach access, and more advanced snorkeling options.

Maximum parking for 3 vehicles at the property; visitors must find free (limited) street parking or paid parking.

Thanks Paul and Eddene for sharing your piece of Paradise!

Perfect for our family vacation.... SO much better than a hotel!

  • 5 of 5

This property truly is a treasure! My husband and I visited Maui for the first time last year, and we loved it so much we planned a vacation to include our kids and their spouses. After staying in a hotel on our last visit, we looked for a vacation rental that could comfortably accommodate our family. We are so glad that we found the Lahaina Oceanfront Treasure! My husband and I stayed in the Ohana, and the rest of the family used the main house.

While the pictures on the website accurately represent the current condition of the property, the beauty of the location is impossible to capture in photos. The backyard is right on the ocean, with a private cove that makes it easy to get in and out of the water. We spent many hours lounging in the sun (or shade - there's a big palm tree), and playing in the ocean. Since the home includes paddle boards, surf boards, boogie boards, kayaks, and snorkels, we were able to try a variety of activities without renting equipment. We also made good use of the bicycles on the mostly flat terrain of the surrounding area.

The property's location on Front Street is ideal. Old Lahaina's shops, restaurants, and galleries are just a short walk away in one direction; more restaurants, shopping, the grocery store, and the Old Lahaina Luau are within walking distance in the other direction. We only used our rental cars for excursions outside of Lahaina. Although we had originally expected to just use the house as our "base", we rarely left this beautiful property throughout our ten day stay.

The owners live next door, and they couldn't have been more gracious and accomodating. Shortly after we arrived, they came over to tell us about the amenities of the house and provide insights about the local area. Eddene later brought us a delicious homemade pie made with fresh mangos! Throughout our stay, they offered excellent restaurant suggestions from their insider's perspective. When I mentioned that we recently lost a very dear friend, they told us about a traditional "send-off" ceremony that involves letting the surf carry a lei out to sea. They even offered to translate our memorial words into Hawaiian for us, and to blow a conch shell in the island tradition!

We were so pleased with this property, and with the warm, welcoming approach of the owners. I'm already planning our next visit to the Lahaina Oceanfront Treasure!

The tans will fade but the memories will last forever

  • 5 of 5

We decided to celebrate our 40 year anniversary early by taking our daughter & grandkids to Maui. We wanted a a nice place to stay that we would all enjoy. What we got by staying at the Laguna oceanfront treasure was paradise. The property is beautiful & right by the ocean, where my grandkids spent time snorkeling & paddle boarding. It is just a few minutes walk to lahaina to excellent shopping & dinning. Eddene & Paul were awesome. They made us feel like we were staying next door to long lost friends. Mahalo for all of the wonderful memories

An Exceptional Find!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, our two sons and families spent a week at the Oceanfront Treasure celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary. We chose this location in large part due to the stellar reviews, its proximity to Lahaina proper and the fact that it can very comfortably accommodate 8 people!...and though it does not have great street appeal, once inside the gate we thought that we truly found paradise!!!

Eddene and Paul were on the mainland at the time of our visit.. But, I had made arrangements to talk to Eddene and Paul upon our arrival so that they could fill us in on the details....but everything was so well organized that, other than pointing out the location of snorkeling equipment, etc and some safety issues related to the kayaks, the call was hardly even necessary!

After having been there for an hour or so, we did find that one of the toilets did not operate as it should and there was an electrical issue with the microwave in the main house...but a quick call to Eddene solved that problem...an electrician came to the house as did someone to fix the toilet within a few short hours!...we were so impressed with the owners and how they handled these issues.

The two houses are perfect for a family visit!...Each house has a well equipped kitchen with everything you need to prepare meals other than your groceries!...Both houses are air conditioned and do work well, albeit they were a bit noisy.....the beds are very comfortable, the TVs are huge (one in each bedroom plus one in the living room of the main house!)...I could go on and on!...there's even an outdoor shower with hot water!...there are surfboards, boogie boards, kayaks, bikes, snorkeling equipment, beach chairs, umbrellas...it has absolutely everything you need!

The lawn is great for the kids and the barbecue works well...Everyone enjoyed the snorkeling and kayaking...The small private beach is just big enough to easily launch the kayaks or simply to swim..especially for our grandkids who were 6 & 8 years of age....Baby Beach is a short kayak trip away or you can walk to it in about 10 minutes!..the water is shallow all of the way to the reef....and we never did use the hot tub since we spent so much time snorkeling during the day and exploring Lahaina in the evening!

The views are spectacular, the sound of the waves lapping on the shoreline, what can we say..simply wonderful...this place can't be beat!...We will certainly be returning to this Oceanfront Treasure!

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This property feels secluded but is just a short walk from downtown Lahaina with all its restaurants, shops and even a grocery store. The property is up to date and very well maintained. The private cove is so convenient to launch kayaks. At low tide, you can even lounge on your private little sandy beach! The ocean in front of the property is not only beautiful to look at, it's also fun to kayak, swim and snorkel in. Worth every penny!

Oceanfront Treasure is truly a real treasure!

  • 5 of 5

This property is aptly named. It is truly a treasure. It is a magical place and one of a kind. Making the reservation was easy and Eddene was a joy to work with in arranging all the details. Upon arrival Eddene and Paul came by to welcome us and tell us about the property. They are a truly charming and friendly couple and full of knowledge about the property, ocean and Maui. They were extremely responsive to any question we had. They are great hosts.

The house is in a fantastic location within easy walking distance to town and anything you might need. It is within walking and swimming distance to baby beach (also aptly named as the water at this beach is so gentle). The house comes with everything you could need to enjoy the ocean: snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, rafts, bikes, water shoes, sand toys, kayaks, life jackets, etc. The interior is decorated very thoughtfully with charming accents throughout. The many mirrors allow you to enjoy the outstanding view from just about anywhere in the home.

The hot tub was an added plus.. One of the highlights of this treasure is the little sandy inlet/beach on the property. Our 6 and 7 year old children LOVED it! As did the grown ups. They would find perfect beautiful shells everyday. We saw turtles swim by and one day we watched a huge giant sea turtle feeding around the rocks of the inlet. It stayed for over an hour. There are plenty of whales to see off in the distance as well and tiny fish that swim in the shallow water. Almost every day we would take the boogie boards and rafts out in the water and float or walk through the shallow water to baby beach. We had many memorable adventures in the ocean outside this home.

We stayed for a week at this property before moving on to a resort in Wailea. Staying at the Lahaina Ocean Front Treasure was, by far, the best part of our vacation. We would definitely stay here again. This property exudes the Aloha spirit and timelessness of Hawaii unlike the many sterile properties for rent that all look the same. This property truly is a treasure.

Located on the oceanfront on Front Street in Lahaina, you will not find a better location. Baby Beach is 1 block to the north (or you can swim or wade to it). Downtown Lahaina is 1 block to the south. The Banyon Tree Park, Lahaina Harbor (whale watching, fishing, dinner cruises, snorkel trips), Ulalena at the Maui Theater, Warren & Annebelle's Magic Show, surf lessons, Traditional Hawaiian Luaus, Wo Hing Temple Museum, Baldwin Home Museum, Sugar Cane Train, art galleries, shops and restaurants are all just steps away!
