A lot more than a hotel room ~ for a lot less!
Lahaina Shores Beach Resort is known in the travel business as a condo/hotel. Each unit is privately owned. Most owners have contracted with a firm that markets the property on their behalf. A relatively small number of us owners have elected to market our own units, feeling we can offer top quality, and at a better rate.
The significant renovation of my sixth floor Mountain View studio #624 was completed in July '08. This includes an all new kitchen with solid wood cabinetry and features an oven range and microhood, a sleek vanity room, walk in shower with a transparent glass side wall, Mexican travertine and ceramic tile floors and shower walls, new carpeting, etc. The Hansgrohe wall bar shower is the same as you may sometimes find in a 5 star hotel.
In addition to the complete furnishings of a vacation home, you are provided with the 'niceties' of a beachfront resort hotel including an open, breezy, comfortably furnished lobby, central air conditioning, large swimming pool, large jacuzzi, BBQ, 24 hr. front desk, etc. The central air conditioning has individual electronic controls. The entryway, the lobby, elevators and hallways have been remodeled, no doubt inspired by early Hawaiian plantation mansions.
The property is fronted by the ocean and has a beach which is excellent for sunbathing, safe swimming and snorkeling. (There's a reef about 150 yds. out which protects the beach from surf.) The large, manicured lawn area and swimming pool between the building and the beach are enhanced with umbrella'd tables & chairs, plus loungers for reading, sunning and snoozing. There's even a heated, bubbling, jacuzzi spa!
Budget minded? My popular fifth floor studio #520 is available at $15 less per night. (Click on rate tab above main photo.) Current photos of #520 are available by request. These centrally air conditioned 550 sq. ft. mountain view studios consist of a large living/bedroom area, a dining area and a bath and/or walk in shower with a separate vanity room. The firm California king bed, along with the carpeted bedroom / living area, make these desirable retreats. Also, there's a rollaway bed with standard size mattress for a third guest. Both studios provide an unobstructed view of the West Maui Mountains. Current photos appear in the photo gallery on owner's own website. (See link below 'Rate Details'' and calendar icon further on.)
High speed WiFi access is FREE. Also, a 24' Vizio flat screen HDTV and a DVD/CD player were recently installed in each unit. The fully equipped kitchens are complete with full size appliances, a microwave, cookware, dishes and utensils. Plenty of linens and towels (as well as beach towels) are provided. And you can leave your hair dryer and iron at home.
At 475 Front St., this is the only beachfront resort in Lahaina. It's just a 3/10 mile walk along Front St. to Lahaina Harbor and quaint, historic Lahaina Town itself, Maui’s storied shop-’til-you-drop, gallery hopping, dining & partying mecca. Lahaina Harbor offers a full menu of boat trips for diving, snorkeling, sport fishing, whale or dolphin watching. Or for a memorable sunset cocktail / dinner cruise.
World class golf (think Kapalua and Ka'anapali) is available nearby.
