Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This is one of the best units at the gorgeous, secluded, Aina Nalu property. Unit I-110 in the Eucalyptus building is a convenient ground floor, 2 bedroom, 2 bath, end unit location with adjacent parking and steps from the black bottom infinity pool and expansive pool pavilion. The immaculate grounds of this totally renovated property are as beautiful and the interior spaces.

This is not just a rental property, it is our beautiful second home on the isle of Maui! Lived in when the owner and her family are in town for business or vacationing. Made available to selective guests when they're off island. The difference between our home and other units that are just rentals is palpable. You are a guest in our gorgeous home; not renters. From a well-equipped kitchen, to lovely wine glasses, to personalized art work, CDs, books, and DVDs, pool toys and snorkel gear that we make available for your enjoyment - you will notice the difference!

Aina Nalu is located in an inviting garden setting in the heart of Lahaina town, just steps from famous Front Street and Lahaina Harbor. A 5 to 10 minute walk gets you to Lahaina Baby Beach, surf lessons at the Breakwall Beach, or dinner at our friend, Jurg Munch's, world-famous Lahaina Grill restaurant - ask us for discount coupons!. If getting out on the water is your thing, our friend Greg Howeth at Lahaina Divers will treat you like kama'aina. This is not just another rental unit – it’s a vacation experience with friends!

* Beautifully furnished in contemporary Hawaiian plantation design

* Very quiet location in a private residential setting

* Free Wifi

The owners have several businesses on Maui with an office as close as Kiheil. One of our local staff members will be available via phone during your entire stay to answer any questions and to help ensure that your vacation is a memorable one. All long-time Maui residents, our staff is a wealth of information for our guests. And friends who live on property are available should you have an urgent need.

Welcome to our home! We are sure you will be back soon.

About Lauraine Bifulco

I opened a branch of my consulting business on Maui in 2006. My husband and I quickly decided that it made sense to have a home here. After all, Hawaii was our first vacation together when we were dating and years later it became our kids' favorite family trip. When in Hawaii on business, I'd have a "home away from home" which we could manage financially if we rented it out when I was back in S. Ca.

Lauraine Bifulco purchased this condo in 2007

Why Lauraine Bifulco chose Lahaina

The weekend we started house hunting, my husband and I promised ourselves that this was just a "let's see" trip and that we would NOT purchase anything. We were determined to investigate and take our time. After looking at high rise luxury buildings, waterfront property, old plantation houses that needed renovation and mixed use office/apartment combinations, in a torrential downpour, we saw signs for an open house at this newly renovated property called "Aina Nalu." We fell in love immediately, and found ourselves signed a purchase contract before the rainstorm was even over!

What makes this condo unique

End unit, ground floor, near parking, near BOTH pools, not your typical rental unit - it's our home. Books, CDs, wine glasses, pool toys, stroller, pack n play, games, beach towels, coolers, beach bags, SNOKEL GEAR, beach chairs, umbrellas, martini set, kitchen fit for a cook, personalized art work and photos, staff and friends on property and on island, AMAZING, dramatic views of the west Maui mountains, a 2 minute walk to Front street beaches, shops, and dining; the most peaceful and beautifully manicured grounds, private and secluded but in town, no big-resort feel like you get in Kaanapali and Wailea. It's truly our home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My daughter and I just had the most fantastic vacation here. The condo is absolutely gorgeous and had all the amenities of home. Thank you for a wonderful trip!

Comfortable and Well Maintained

  • 4 of 5

Unit is clean and well maintained. The beach towels and chairs we could use for beach expeditions were a plus. Kitchen is small, but has all the essentials. Pool areas were well maintained, with a couple of barbeques available at the smaller pool. The pavilion by the larger pool is a nice place for groups to gather, a plus since we were in Lahaina for a wedding. Other family members stayed elsewhere in the complex, so we had the opportunity to see three other units. They are all quite similar, although there is some variation in furnishings depending on what individual owners or property managers have done over time. Views tend to be of the parking lots--think of the condo as a base of operations and not a place you choose for the view--it is walking distance to Front Street, restaurants and groceries.

Fantastic location and value

  • 5 of 5

I rented this condo for 6 days. The location is great if you're looking to stay within walking distance of Lahaina and within a few minutes drive of Ka'anapali. The condo was very clean, quiet, the beds were comfortable and having two bedrooms and bathrooms was ideal for my family of 5. They have everything you need here - full kitchen, dishwasher, washer, dryer, TV, & AC. This was my first experience renting through VRBO and it was truly pleasant, and I appreciated the owner's prompt and courteous communication. The parking is $20 a day, but you can park right outside the unit, which is very convenient. I spoke to a few other "residents" at Aina Nalu, and all were repeat visitors, so that says a lot about the facility; we felt very much at home and would definitely rent this unit again.

Good for groups

  • 4 of 5

I rented this unit for my parents and my mother in law. It was a good size for them especially considering that they don't know each other very well. We had our family gatherings in the living room. Both groups really enjoyed the location because they were still able to enjoy their time there despite not having a car. I have to take off one star though because the second room was missing the tv remote and my mother in law has a hard time moving around due to arthritis.

Great for a Lahania location

  • 4 of 5

Third time at Aina Nalu, first time at this unit. Nice unit. good location in complex. Ground floor suited us with access to parked car. (yes we payed the $20 parking fee - with grandkids and 'stuff' always going in or out, it is handy) We thought about buying in Aina years ago, but now really rely on owners with nice units like this to enjoy a stay in Lahania. Great we good book for 3 days as we were moving to Kahana next. Cheers from Vancouver BC

Great value and location!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Aina Nalu! The condo was well laid out and had everything we needed for our stay with 2 babies and a toddler. The location was perfect with an easy walk into town and access to great beaches just a few minutes drive up the road. The pools on the property were lovely, and even though it was spring break, we didn't find them particularly busy. The only downside to this complex is the parking. $20 seemed pretty steep. We were lucky and able to find street parking most nights and on the couple nights we couldn't there is a $12 lot across the street. We would recommend this location .
