About Us

We love wildlife sightseeing. While in Juneau, Alaska, we were on one of Captain Larry's whale and orca watching tours. If you find yourself in Juneau, this is a must. Anyway, while on that trip, we were talking with Captain Larry and his first mate. As it turns out, lots of the naturalists who work in Alaska spend their winters in Maui, basically, with the same whales. While discussing this, the first mate's eyes glazed over and he just said, 'This is nothing, you should see Maui in winter.' So we did!

I had been in Lahaina once before as this was a port of call on the cruise I was on. Cruises rarely do a port justice, but I did see Lahania Shores and made a note that if I ever got to come back, that is where I wanted to stay. After the Alaska trip, we knew we were going to Maui, and I knew where we were going to stay. We made a reservation for an 11 night stay the following January. We were both a little concerned that there would be enough to do to keep us interested for that long. As the plane landed at Kahului, we just said to each other that it was only 11 days and if we didn't like it, we just wouldn't come back.

The next year, and the next three years, we came for the month of February and regretted that we'd chosen such a short month! With each visit, we did more and more research looking at real estate, and pricing units at Lahaina Shores. It was a pretty easy decision for us that this was where we wanted to be. So, on that last visit, we chose a realtor, and waited for something to come on the market. Clearly, it all worked out!

They Say ...

Truly Paradise

Let me begin, the web pix do NOT do this penthouse justice. It was immaculate and absolutely beautiful (David & Autumn, you have very good taste! i loved your attn to details that some condo owners remodeling might overlook, ie non-slamming drawers...i luv luv luv those) and had everything one might need...including flashlight for haleakala trek, and binoculars for whale watching. everyone we encountered, from resort employees to guests, were warm and open. the location is perfect; you could choose to relax either by pool, beachfront, on the lanai, or wander a few steps to Front Street and intermingle w/an aclectic mix of folks. we ran into a number of people from our hometown!

A couple recommendations: a snorkel trip to Lanai'i (don't remember name but slip 11, cap'n craig & kelly), lunch at 4 Seasons on Lanai'i (spendy but Very ONO), sushi at Sansei in Ka'apalua...but my fave activity was to sit on lanai in late afternoons w/a glass of wine and binoculars whale watching..one evening we watched a pod of 6-7 whales cross the way and then cross back. it was amazing, they were breaching and relatively close (i guess here would be my only suggestion to improve condo; provide more than 1 set of binoculars...we bickered over them LOL).

My 82 yr old dad is already planning our next trip back to maui and he reallly wants to stay in Penthouse 5 again. btw, he befriended all of Front Street, played his harmonica Open Mike Nite at Hard Rock Cafe and won that nite. WE DEFINITELY RECOMMEND STAYING HERE & HOPE TO STAY AGAIN! WE GIVE IT 10 STARS!! Aloha!

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is to create a home away from home in Maui for every guest to experience. Whether you prefer to prepare gourmet meals, or eat out every night. Watch sports on TV or sip a cocktail watching the Pacific. The Penthouses are the perfect place for you.

Be sure to take a look at our Photo pages as the place is just beautiful. Please use one of the Reserve tabs to ask a question, or to let us know when you would like to enjoy the best place in Maui.
