“Great place to stay in heart of Lahaina”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

We visited maui 15 years ago and spent the whole time in Kihei and this time wanted to spend a little time in Lahaina. We wanted a condo as we came as a family of four and like a little more space including a full kitchen for storing food etc. so we aren't eating out all of the time. This seemed to be one of the few places that had what we were looking for. It is not cheap at this time of the year but it certainly delievered what we were looking for. We asked for a ground floor near the pool and it was well decorated (some furniture a little warn), modern and clean. We had a complaint about our shower and they responded immediately. All in all a good experience and it was close to everything in Lahaina.

Room Tip: No elevator so ground floor is better BUT walls are thin so we could hear people above and below us.

This place is a great place to stay if you don't want to drive around Lahaina. It's location is perfect, just 2 streets off Front Street and the Banyan Tree with the grocery store just a 3min walk. The units are a comfortable and spacious - a basic condo, with a full kitchen, laundry, living, bar, sleeping areas. The main pool is the best place to relax, next to no one uses it and it's very quiet. Parking is not free, you can park on the street, but beware - local theft is abundant. last time we came, we actually took the local bus here from the airport - less than $10 for 2. If youneed to rent a car for an excursion, plenty of rent-a-car places close. The full kitchen can save you some serious money. Eateries are abundant around here, not cheap but reasonable.

Room Tip: One that overlooks the pool. Most look over a parking lot. If you don't mind it, get a cheap roo...

Aina Nalu Outrigger Condo is located one block from Front street in Lahaina, Maui. This eliminates the need to rent a car which helps out financially as the hotel charges $15 a day for parking.
A five minute walk takes you to many quality restaurants and shopping. We rented a one bedroom unit which had enough space for two people. There are two bedroom units available. Ours was very clean with two air conditioning units. We liked the unit but were surprised how close our front door neighbors were. We could definitly could hear all our neighbors. There was supposed to be designated smoking areas but the people below us apparently didn't know about it.

The salt water pool was a bonus as it was large enough to do laps.
We would stay there again if we could specify a room. They do have rooms with a better view than we had.
All the staff were very courteous and friendly.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of one of the two pools or at least a parking lot. They have rooms with v...

Stayed for one week in Jan 2013. Booked through a private owner Unit G101 large 2bed 2bath unit with washer and dryer.

Unit was very nice..not perfectly clean but no huge issues. Very well stocked with all necessities.

Front dest staff were extremely rude and not helpful because we did not book through them they could not answer a question out of common courtesy. Security guards were very pleasant and helpful.

The condo grounds were wonderful. Very nice pools and very well landscaped.

Great location to shops, restaurants and grocery stores. Front street only 1 block away.

After staying lots of times at the big resorts in Kaanapali, we decided to give this condo-type property a try instead. We were very pleased. The 2 bedrooms were comfortable, the kitchen was well enough equipped for "vacation" cooking (quick and easy!), and the living-room area was sufficient for the four of us to kick back and relax. The big pool is perfect for a cooling swim at the end of the day, and not too busy during the times we used it. They could use a couple more barbecue areas - we had to wait for these on two occasions - but overall it was a very pleasant experience. We'll be back!

We always stay in a condo when we travel to the islands. Best way to have the kitchen, 2nd bath, etc... First time staying in Lahaina, instead of beachfront on Maui. Perfect location so all of us could walk to beach, shops, restaurants, and to the dock without worrying about parking. Family trip with our 2 20-something daughters.
Individual owners for condos--would suggest a few more amenities in the kitchen: utensils and seating was a little lacking (only 2 barstools for eating at the bar, needed 2 more)
Waited for 2nd day to get our rental car (saved 2 days rental fees). Then easy drive to anywhere we wanted to go.Weather was a little unusual--high trade winds came in, bringing unsettled weather. Re-scheduled our activities after winds died down, but don't worry--the sun was always within chasing distance. Just take care when entering the ocean. Recommend Kihei in winter for a more summertime feeling with larger white sand beaches.

Room Tip: Be prepared to pay $15/day for parking. budget for it since it's so convenient. Use the pavilion...
