5/5 Excellent

Lahaina oceanfront condo
The perfect couple getaway! It's away from all of the hustle and bustle and you would hardly know this little gem exists if driving by. It is also very close to front Street (restaurants, bars etc ) with only a ten minute walk. We were so impressed with the suite that we stayed in. It was right in front of the ocean with a private lanai. Just steps away were communal loungers in front of the water edge that practically felt like our own because it's such a quiet complex.

Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Pictures do not reflect the actual room. Room has old green carpet. Cabinets with water damage. We had a roach on our bed one night. Tried to ask to be switch to an updated room, even though they had cancellations. Wouldn’t do it. After I told them we had a roach. Communication stopped.

Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness, amenities
I had room 1 and it was incredible! Beautiful studio layout with full kitchen and bathroom with a walk out lanai right on the water. Perfect for someone not looking for a resort/kids running and screaming around. Watch the sunset right on your patio. Laura also provides laundry machines and snorkel/swimming gear free of rent if you want to use. Located in a perfect area you can walk to the shops at Lahaina and a quick drive to anywhere else on the island. Definitely recommend!
