Gated beach resort - 1bd 2ba - sleeps 2-4
LIKES Married over fourteen years, Steve & Lisa enjoy spending their days sailing, surfing, yacht racing and all things "boaty!" Though often traveling to new and exciting places, they continuously look forward to spending time with treasured friends and enjoying their own destination homes. OUR PICKS Just as our guests enjoy the variety of views and amenities between our homes, it’s challenging to designate a favorite gem! Highlights for us are watching sailboats passing by on the SF bay and lagoons, whales breaching from the lanais at Maui Beach, Seashell and Oceanfront Cabanas, and rare formidable surf. FAVORITE THINGS Exotic cultures, surfing, yachting, fine champagne and cigars. From luxury hotels to modest surf bungalows. Most of all, true friends keeping it real...

Sounds better than it is
Old place, made with poor construction. No privacy. The photo looks like a private backyard, but it is communal. The beach was NOT close....long hot walk and it was was super rocky. We were visiting family staying in the same complex and all 8 of us cut our feet up on the rocks and sharp coral. We live on the big island and just wanted to go home the whole time. We have better beaches and a much nicer house. This place is way overpriced for the quality.
Needs some basic items and new bed
The resort is nice and the condo served our purpose mainly because the unit is pet friendly. However the resort requires documentation and only allows service animals. The condo is very dated, (ie old painted thin plywood cabinets, missing and old trim, cabinets in bathrooms need repair etc).These esthetic’s weren’t that troublesome, but the amenities were. All the dishes, drink ware and cookware were mix and match and looked like they picked them up at the thrift store. There were no actual glass drink glasses except for wine glasses and two thick beer mugs. They did have 2 nice coffee mugs. The pots and pans were gross. I’m not sure if they had caked on food and were scratched or just rusted and scratched. Don’t plan on doing any cooking. The bed was extremely uncomfortable and you sank in the middle. My suggestion would be to invest in new cookware and buy some cheap glasses at target and get a new bed. These are important things to supply in a condo. I rent condos and maybe my standards are really high, but there is no way I would rent a place in that condition.
We enjoyed this venue and location of the VRBO. Close to the pool and don't forget to look into the outside closet for games, snorkel gear and more. The pool by the ocean is also amazing for some quiet rejuvenation. We didn't get around to playing tennis but had a great time. The kitchen was just right for us to cook a few meals while enjoying our stay in Maui.
Quaint and close to town
Owner was very friendly. Close to the pool and beach. Really couldn’t ask for more
Cute house by the beach
This is the perfect little house for a vacation near (not exactly on) the beach, and far away from the big resorts. It’s located in quiet nook of a well-maintained gated community (year round residents live there). The unit itself is thoughtfully stocked with everything you need for a comfortable stay and the decor is tasteful, fun and Beach-y. It’s a 15 minute walk into Lahaina town. There are the usual quirks of living ocean-side and some minor signs of wear, but nothing insurmountable. Overall this is a thoroughly pleasant place to stay.
Thank you Claire for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your time in Lahaina!
We need to talk Not as represented
I regret you were unhappy. You left without even speaking to me first, I had no opportunity to even try to solve your problems. I am very responsive to our guests and I try very hard to make their stays pleasant.
While our Seashell Cabana in the gated beach community of Puamana located next to the historic village, shops, harbor and restaurants is an ideal Hawaiian destination.
