My husband and I stayed here on the recommedation of our step-daughter who lives a block away. Julie, the manager, was so very nice and accomodating. She let my step-daughter get the key early as we were arriving late so she could stock our kitchen as a surprise. We stayed on the ground floor with view of the ocean and the BBQ's [which were cleaned daily and we used several times] and the pool were steps away! As is the ocean. Steps take you down to a beach only a few use. Turtles play in the water and you can enjoy the sunset.
The grounds are kept immaculate as groundskeepers work daily to keep it that way. All staff was very friendly and helpful.
The unit itself was one bedroom and very roomy. We had family over for several meals and it never seemed crowded. Clean and well appointed, as long as you don't want to stay in the thick of the action [which we don't] this is the perfect relaxing place. We are retuning again this December. Can't wait!

Room Tip: gound level first 3 units next to ocean

The unit 110 was just fine for out vacation in Maui. We were there with a group of friends, they were staying in a different unit, so we had the opportunity of comparing both units. Unit 110 has a nice kitchen, a good variety of cooking utensils and dinnerware. The reason why we choose this unit was because it has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, I would say that the master bedroom is a little small and the bathroom doesn't have a window but for me the big disadvantage of the bedroom is the location of it, since it is next to the access to this area and it can turn a little bit noisy. It seems that gardening starts around 7 am, not great if you want to sleep in.
Overall the place is clean, comfortable and has a good access to a little beach where is possible to do snorkeling. Since there are all type of units in this complex I would suggest to check all the little details, like if you need dishwasher find one that are actually have it because as we found out are friends unit didn't have one.

This was a fantastic location by the water. We stayed with another couple in an apartment with a 2 bedrooms (1 is a loft bedroom) and it was very enjoyable. It was self catering with 2 bathrooms, 2 queen beds and the most amazing views. We saw lovely sunsets from our balcony in the evenings and sea turtles swimming around in the water during the day. Spacious and well maintained. Had a lovely swimming pool and BBQ's available for use by anyone staying in the apartments. It is a fair distance from downtown Lahaina but we had a car and as there was a parking space for each apartment it was great. Would highly recommend these apartments for a short or a long stay as everything about them was great.

We stayed in unit 126 (west maui condo rentals) and loved it!! It has full views of the ocean and you are feet from the ocean. You walk down a short path and your feet are in the sand. In the other direction is the pool. We stayed for nearly 6 weeks and loved every moment. The complex has some full time residents which makes for a very friendly atmosphere and many people gather at the BBQ each night to share stories and get to know one another. We loved how friendly the place was, much more connection with your neighbors than at a big resort. There are turtles eating daily and you will not be one of those vacationers hoping for a quick glimpse of a turtle. I highly recommend this unit.

Room Tip: Unit 126 is a great corner unit

We couldn't have had a better place! We loved it! Looking over some of the reviews, I realized that a lot can depend on which unit you have. The complex is a mix of full time residents and rentals. We were in unit 103 and it was perfect for us. Julie the manager was awesome. Parking can be a challenge but not as bad as at some of the other condos nearby. (Each condo here does have an assigned space and there are a couple of visitor slots. Where our son was staying there were NO visitor slots, residents only, and about one fourth the number of spaces to condos! Think about that!), Our son & his family were staying about a quarter mile down the road. When booking we thought it was best to give ourselves a little space. We are so happy we did! This condo complex was so much better, and friendlier. We have visited Maui several times, and usually stay up country, or in another area. This is the first time we have stayed in the Kaanapali/Lahaina area. Now if we go back we will certainly be trying to get into the Polynesian Shores. Also have to mention that Unit 103 was everything we could have wanted. Actually a few times a neighbor had to come by to borrow a knife or some other cooking item (they returned them!), but it just goes to show how well appointed and supplied our unit was. The complex has a nice pool, not huge, but more than adequate. They have three good sized Weber grills out by the pool area a couple of picnic tables that were great for the cook out we had. There was a maintenance crew, who we saw everyday cleaning the grills, and generally keeping everything tidy. We highly recommend the Polynesian Shores!

Room Tip: Unit 103 our favorite!
