Amazing Property Right on the water
5

What I love most about this house is location.  It's right smack dab on the water, and at the end of the side walk in down town Lahaina on front street.  You can walk to all the bars and restaurants, the Banyan Tree Park, and all the night life Lahaina has to offer.    

Paul and Adina are great hosts.  They have Kayaks stored under the house that you just pull out and paddle into the sea.   They have bikes, and surf boards and all kinds of other toys. 

The house is very well done and smartly furnished.  Big HD flat screen TVs in every room, granite counters, SS appliances and recently remodled

I highly recommend this home and can't wait to stay here again.

What a treasure it is!!!!

WOW!!! what an amazing time myself and our family had staying here. This place truly is a little treasure, and we can't wait to go back.

We were a family of 8, and we were looking for a special place to call home for a week in Maui. After days of searching Lahaina oceanfront treasure popped up, and it was perfect for what we were looking for.  I called Paul and Eddene, who were listing the property, and they were so easy to talk too, and answered all my questions.They are such sweet people, they live right next door..but the way the homes are situated it's very private..so you would not even know it. The whole rental process was made very easy, and we never had one hiccup. 

They were there to greet us the day we arrived, showed us all around the house and ohana, and where all the ocean toys were stored, how to access wifi, use the washer and dryer. etc. They even had a beautiful fruit basket and flowers for us too. 

Now about the property. Don't let the outside appearance of this house deceive you, what's inside is truly what matters,if we we did not know this was the place we would have driven right by it. Once you walk in the gate and you see the beautiful back yard and the ocean right in front of you, you forget about everything else. The main house has 3 bedrooms, a main bathroom a 1/2 bath in one of the bedrooms and another 1/2 near the office, so plenty of toilets, since there was 6 of us trying to all shower in the morn, we found using the beautiful outside shower they built ,more fun than the house..it has hot water and is very private the way it's set up, and how often do you get to shower outside and see the ocean!! The Ohana is amazing , our parents stayed in here, and loved having their privacy, and pretty much there own home,away from us kids who all stayed in the main home, so it truly was perfect for our family, we could come home late from a fun night out in Lahaina, and not disturb them. It was so nice every morning waking up and walking outside and all of us would drink our coffee and watch the whales, what a show they put on for us everyday we were there, so fun. We all felt like we were home, it was so comfy here, and with Lahiana literally a 5 min walk from your doorstep, we had everything we could ever want.  We would kayak and paddle board in the afternoon, using our own private entrance into the ocean, and we would snorkel a few miles down the road in kan apalli. Paul and Eddene gave us all the 411 on where to snorkel, eat.etc.so handy to have locals to help.

We really had one of the best vacations ever, staying here, and I know we will be coming back for years to come. I just hope there will be availability once everybody catches on to how special this place is and Paul and Eddene too.Till next time...

A perfect spot for a fantastic vacation!

Our family of four spent ten “Maui” days with my brother-in-law’s family of four (four adults and four children ages 12 – 17) in this restored heritage oceanfront Hawaiian home. Don’t be fooled by the street view … enter through the gate and feel “at home” and at peace in this little oasis. The house and cottage are fun and have ample room with all the necessities one needs including hotel quality linens.  We ate all our dinners outside as we listened to the waves lap up on the shoreline. Fabulous! The barbeque was large and clean. There are so many highlights staying at this Oceanfront Treasure … watching the whales jump outside the kitchen window as we made our morning coffee, having unlimited access to kayaks, surf boards, boogie boards, and stand-up boards  (which were located under the main house with easy access to the ocean), short walking distance to the town of Lahaina (our children often walked into town together to look around or get shaved ice cones), drinking a glass of wine with the home owners who lived next door (two very lovely people), watching the sunsets in the backyard and just feeling like we were a part of Maui. The only negative would be that some road traffic could be heard in the cottage bathroom and in the first bedroom in the main house. We solved this problem by closing the cottage bathroom door and turning on the fan in the bedroom when we went to bed. Baby Beach can be easily reached by walking or kayaking along the water from the house or by walking down the street. Our time, however, was spent at the bigger beaches such as Kaanapali and DT Fleming where the waves are big for surfing, boogie boarding, and just bobbing in. It is only a short drive to these beaches. Note; the best place on Kaanapali Beach is just outside of the Aston at the Whaler Resort and down to Black Rock. The whole beach at DT Fleming is good but it is a bit more of a drive (20 minutes). Our family had a wonderful stay and we were sad to leave our “home away from home”.

truly a treasure

The Lahaina Oceanfront Treasure is truly a treasure! We stayed for 9 nights in just the Ohana - so I can't review the main house, though I did get to walk through it, and it is also beautiful.  The Ohana is just perfect for a couple, especially if you want a romantic time.  Spacious bathroom and shower - and the outdoor shower is amazing! Small, but well appointed kitchen.  In addition to the bed, there are 2 bar stools and two other comfy wicker chairs.  Although I'm not terribly impressed with Hawaii's cable company, the TV in the Ohana is good quality - but who wants to watch it, when you can watch the waves instead? ...

The oceanfront location in Lahaina cannot be beat - walking distance from just about everywhere in town, though I must admit the walk to Feast at Lele may have been a bit ambitious. (If you go to the Feast, maybe walk there, and cab it back!)  The view is exquisite.  I could stare at the ocean all day!  And we had a wonderful time using the kayaks and other water toys that come with the house.

The owners, Eddene and Paul, who live directly next door, are very friendly and welcoming.  If you need anything, they are just a door knock or phone call away.  Very sweet people!

Bottom line, I can't wait to return!  You won't go wrong choosing this rental.

The title of this house says it all.   It really is a treasure.  The views were awesome.  The house was more than we expected and had everything that we could have asked for.  We brought our children and grandchildren and there was plenty for them to play with such as kayaks, surfboards, floats, buckets, shovels, coolers anything you needed.

The house was clean and well furnished.  The beds were comfortable and made you feel like you were at home.  We will go back again in a few years and stay at the Lahaina Oceanfront Treasure.

The home owners were so friendly and were very willing to help us in any way they could.  We would highly recommend this rental to anyone.

 

Thanks again for a wonderful vacation.

Great Stay at Lahaina Oceanfront Treasure!

We just returned from a week and a half stay at Lahaina Oceanfront Treasure and had one of our greatest vacations ever.  We traveled with 7 people (3 small familes with one baby), and truly enjoyed the beauty of Maui and the friendliness of our hosts, Paul and Eddene.  With one family in the smaller home and the other two in the adjoining unit, the accomodations were perfect for us.  The view of the ocean and the Island of Lanai in your front yard is worth the price alone.  We enjoyed many early mornings and evenings out there after a BBQ just relaxing and just taking in the scenery.  Downtown Lahaina is an easy walk and a fun place to go.  All necessary stores and entertainment are within a close distance and make it easy to do daily shopping.

 

I highly recommend this rental property as a vacation destination.  It was perfect for our needs and allowed us convenient access to tour Maui.  Paul and Eddene our great hosts and are there if you need them.

We were a family of 5 adults and 3 small kids.  We stayed for one week.  This is an amazing property in an amazing location!  The pictures don't do it justice.  Paul and Eddene have the house in beautiful shape, everything is provided and new, there was plenty of space for all of us, and the most perfect backyard for laying out and enjoying the perfect weather and ocean breezes.  You're right on the water, the stars are beautiful at night, and you're less than five minutes on foot from the shopping district on Front Street, where you can find restaurants, ice cream, souvenirs, etc.  You are also a short drive away from grocery stores and anything else you might need.  Despite the proximity to shopping and restaurants, the house is quiet and you definitely have your space and privacy.  Our kids couldn't have been happier just playing in the backyard, splashing in the water that laps up gently to the backyard, and hanging out just down the street on "baby beach."  Our vacation in Maui was spectacular, and much of that is certainly thanks to the perfect rental home that Paul and Eddene have, and they couldn't have been nicer and more helpful!  If we're fortunate enough to return to Maui, we know where we'll be staying -- Lahaina Oceanfront Treasure!

Best vacation handsdown!

We booked the Lahaina Oceanfront Treasure, a group of 8 friends, in town to for a wedding. It was the best decision we've made in a long time. The house is perfect. You can't beat the location. The Pacific is your backyard and in less then 5 minutes you can be in Lahaina town center for shopping and dining.  Once inside the house gate, it is serene and peaceful. The sunset views are amazing! We snorkeled, kayaked, surfed, relaxed at Baby Beach, grilled,  and much more. The home had everything we needed. Plus Eddene and Paul were very helpful and responsive to our needs. I have nothing but positive memories of the whole trip. If I could, I'd be back there right now. Pick this house. 

Can't say enough about this house!

This was my second trip to Maui for a wedding, and a large group of my friends decided to rent this house very last minute due to some complications with a previous rental, but boy were we glad the previous house didn't work out. I have never stayed at a rental more equipped to have fun in the water than this house. With its own private cove, and multitudes of water craft and snorkeling/fishing gear, it is literally impossible not to know what to do. Also, with its incredibly close proximity to all that beautiful downtown Lahaina has to offer, crawling out of the ocean and into a restaurant or shaved ice shop has never been easier. The house was also very spacious with updated appliances and everything you needed to cook up a thanksgiving dinner if you wanted, but honestly all i was looking for in the house was a comfortable bed and roof over my head, thankfully both were included.

Cant say enough about the home owners, Eddene and Paul as well. They were always so helpful and if we needed anything they were on it right away. I would recommend this house to anyone in the future and would love to be back there again soon.

BEST STAY EVER!!!!

I have been to many places around the world and this by far has been the BEST STAY EVER!

First off, the pictures DO NOT do this place justice. The house is located in the perfect location with the ocean as your backyard! The house is just a quick few minutes walk to the grocery stores and local shops. The place is fully furnished with the latest appliances and a flat screen TV in every single room. There's even a private warm shower outdoors!

My FAVORITE part about this house were the paddle boards, surf boards, kayaks, snorkeling gear, and bikes that Eddene and Paul freely allow you to use (they're located under the house). Whether you are traveling with a large party or with kids, this house allows each individual to spend their day how they want. There's no need to wait until everyone's ready to go to the beach since you have one in your backyard. One car rental... no problem!...You can walk to town in under 5 minutes. 

What made the stay that much more special was Eddene and Paul's hospitality. They were great hosts! The moment we arrived, they both came over to give us a tour of the place and you immediately felt welcomed. Our group ran into some trouble and Paul was so understanding and helpful. Upon our departure, they even stopped by to wish us well.

If they're any vacancy, BOOK NOW! You'd be a fool not to.

A sunset view from the backyard, so glad that we were able to book the Lahaina Oceanfront Treasure as our home away from home when in Maui. I was lucky to stay in the Ohana house and be able to wake up and fall asleep to the sound of the ocean. And Eddene and Paul were so kind to let us use their kayaks, paddleboards and snorkel gear while we were there. Great way to save money vs. having to rent these from a shop in town. I hope Lahaina Oceanfront Treasure will be available everytime I come back to the island of Maui. Aloha!

 
Wonderful!

Must book now !!!

We are the Reina family visiting from Texas , our visit to Maui started on June 20,2014 thru June 27th,... Wow , Wow, Wow from the moment we walked into Lahaina Oceanfront Treasure rental we were in Maui Heaven. The accommodations were first rate, all the comforts of home right at our finger tips. Paul and Eddene McNamara thought of everything. The water "toys" provided with the rental gave us a chance to attempt surfing , playing with the body boards, a chance to kayak and snorkel. We had our own private cove to wade in, with an entrance to the ocean all to ourselves! The location is ideal we were able to walk a short distance to the best restaurants, shops , art galleries and so much more! If you are thinking about renting this treasure don't give it a second thought you must do it!!! We will definitely use this rental on our next visit to Maui!

Wow, this is the most beautiful and picturesque property anyone could ask for in Lahaina.

We had 7 ladies in our group, and stayed in both the main rental house and the cottage for a week.  The backyard was so gorgeous, with a huge patio, lovely grass and palm trees, huge fancy grill, two dining tables, lounge chairs, fabulous outside stone shower, and even a hot tub.  We watched the ocean every day, and the sea turtles were easy to see from our yard.

The owners went out of their way to welcome us, give us local information, and even took a few of us on a snorkel trip north of the area.  Some of our ladies also went to a local yoga class with EdeneTHey are a wealth of information and very patient and helpful.

We would definitely come back.  Every amenity is there.  The location is incredible.  Can't say enough about it.

Just that now more and more people will know about it, and it will book up a year in advance if word gets out.  But as it was my very first time to Hawaii, I wanted to share this with others, because this rental will really make your trip so much more fabulous.  The only noise is the waves breaking against the rocks.  Can you handle that?

A Perfect Maui Vacation

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Lahaina Oceanfront Treasure. The owners welcomed us warmly providing an informative tour of the property. Our trip was a family vacation with our two adult sons - one with his girlfriend and the other with is wife and two little girls (5 years old and 7 months old). The 1930s house has been updated lovingly and has such character. It is complete with all the amenities one could imagine from booties for tidepooling to binoculars, snorkel gear, kayaks and more. We used and enjoyed it all! The tiny sandy and rocky beach area just in front of the house is available at low tide for finding crabs and all sorts of tidepool critters. There's a perfect opening in the small rock wall for taking kayaks out or snorkeling. One afternoon we watched a green sea turtle munch the algae on the rocks as we sat on the comfy lounge chairs. Dinner was at sunset each evening at the patio table listening to the birds and enjoying whatever we BBQ'd. This was especially lovely because we were walking distance to town with that yummy shaved ice, food shopping, beachy shops and restaurants. And yet, we were never bothered by noise. The house comfortably and easily accommodated our group. The baby borrowed the port-a-crib and baby high chair while the 5-year-old borrowed the blow up mattress. We used both kitchens for varying schedules. The outside shower was just right after visiting the nearby sandy beach. There are books, games and toys for all ages. It truly was an oceanfront treasure.

Wonderful escape

The rental did not disappoint. It is just like the pictures! There were seven of us and we had a great time. All of the amenities needed to make the vacation relaxing and memorable. Paul and Eddene were wonderful! We would definitely recommend this rental to anyone traveling to Maui.

This is my second time staying in this beautiful home in Maui. It is the perfect location on Front Street, close to many restaurants and shops. But you won't really want to leave the property. You have your own piece of the ocean all to yourself. The owners supply you with all the water toys you need. Kayaks,surfboards and even sand toys. We traveled with all ages from 9yrs old to 90years old. This is an amazing home with wonderful owners. We would love to come back to this paradise!
Whale Watched From Our Private Backyard

My wife and I enjoyed our week at Lahaina Oceanfront Treasure watching the whales daily from our own private backyard!  Eddene and Paul were great and there for us for anything we might need.  The home was very comfy and rustic which is what we like.  Our huge hottub and grill in the patio area made for delicious meals and private sunsets in our swimsuits without spending a fortune at restaurants that are an easy walk just up the street if that's what we had wanted.  We had done the condo thing at Ka'anapali before with limited privacy and no real entry into the water.  This time we had all the privacy we wanted and our own private lagoon and entry into the ocean.  No more looking for us.  We know where to stay now in Maui!

Perfect vacation home

We had the most amazing time at this oceanfront treasure! Paul and Eddene were so responsive and truly wanted us to enjoy every minute. THe house is perfectly set up to meet your needs...we grilled out and had dinner watching the sunset and whales jumping. It was so convenient to have the paddle boards and kayak right at the house. You can easily get to baby beach. The hot tub was so relaxing and fun. We walked to the Old Lahaina Luau, downtown and the grocery store.. IT really was the prefect location! THank you!

8 of us lived in paradise for 8 wonderful days. Snorkeling right outside was such a treat! Whales were spotted daily. Thank you for having this treasure possible!!!
Fantastic Family Vacation Spot

I can't even begin to say enough about this vacation rental.  My mother took her three daughters, their husbands and her youngest granddaughter on a vacation of a lifetime.  We spent 7 glorious days in this home on the ocean and loved every minute of it!  The house was supplied with every type of water toy you can imangine along with all the snorkels, fins and water shoes you could possibly need.  Paul, the owner was there to great us and was always a joy to visit with.  He had many good history stories and made us all feel at home. 

Another great aspect of this home is its location. From the lawn on the ocean you can see the boats coming and going, a nightly visit from a large sea turtle and many fish to see while snorkeling.  You never have to go anywhre.  If the time comes that you want to get away for a bit, your right on Front street. The access to all the shops, resturants, Banyan park and the warf are all right there within walking distance.  We rented a scooter from Maui Mobility for my mom to get around.  She was able to use it from the house all the way to Paia Fish Resturant (at the oppisite end of Front street) and back with no problems! 

We all had such a relaxing and wonderful trip to Maui I hope we can visit again someday!

Thank you Paul and Eddena for sharing your wonderful home with us.  It truely was a trip full of great memories which we will cherish forever!

Dream vacation location

The Lahaina Oceanfront Treasure is just that, a Treasure. Words cannot describe the perfection of this location! Breath taking views as soon as you open the door. And that door. The door alone makes you feel like you are walking into a dream. It's amazing. The closeness to the waters edge is unheard of. Its maybe 30 steps from the front door and maybe 10 from the back door to the waters edge! I loved everything about this home. Eddene and Paul have clearly put a lot of love and attention to detail in this property. They are amazing Host. They provided everything you could imagine you could need. The water toys available like kayaks, stand up boards, boogie boards, snorkels, fins, water shoes, etc were right there ready to put into the water. No carrying them anywhere.The location was perfect. Right there on Front Street and we didn't have to drive! The outdoor shower was by far one of my favorite amenities. The hot tub was also used by all! The bikes provided by Paul allowed us to bike every morning before the crowds of tourist filled Front Street  The word treasure is the best way to describe this home. I can't recommend this place enough. We had 4 different family dynamics staying there because we came to town for a friends 50th birthday and we all had an amazing time. Everyone felt like they were blessed to have the opportunity to stay in such an amazing place and not in some hotel. Pictures truly don't even do this place justice and the pictures are amazing!!! The Aloha spirit is alive a well at the Lahaina Oceanfront Treasure. You will not be disappointed. If I could give them a 20 point rating I would!  Thank you Eddene and Paul for you're amazing hospitality and kindness during our stay. Our memories will truly last us a lifetime. We hope to be back again in Maui in a couple of years and I wouldn't want to stay any other place. Many mahalos to you for sharing your amazing home.

Loved this property and its owners, Eddene and Paul!    Booking was easy, they greeted us shortly after our arrival and where available when we had questions.  Eddene especially went out of her way to make sure everything was as needed.  When we reported that a toaster was no longer working, she provided a new one the next day.

We spent a week here with our grown children and their spouses.  With the two units, my husband and I were able to have our privacy and quiite, while the others occupied the larger unit.  The location is fantastic, you can walk anywhere in Lahaina, which we did.  In additiion to many good restaurants we enjoyed the museums, shopping, and the very funny magician show Warren and Annabelle's.

Eddene and Paul have provided many "toys" that we used to cycle around town, and enjoy the water (snorkeling, boating, fishing, surfing).  

The units themselves are clean and have good communal space including the kitchen and living room. There is also ample outdoor dining, seating and lounging chairs.  Because the weather is so great, we ended up spending much of our time outside enjoying the beautiful views.

We highly recommend this property, we cherish our memories and hope to be back.
