Perfect for us and many like us

If you are looking for an affordable, comfortable condo in Lahaina town, this is the place. It's been highly upgraded from the old Maui Islander days. The "condo makeover" with the in-room washer dryer, full small kitchen, and great bathroom and shower is very nice and a wonderful surprise for us. If you are like us and want to hit the water and sports activities, sightseeing and maybe some shopping and dining in Lahaina, this place is perfect. If you want to watch a beautiful view from your room while drinking cocktails all day, go somewhere else. No view here! Just a comfortable room to come back to after surfing or snorkeling. Throw your towels and bathing suits in the dryer, cook a quick lunch and jam out again, or jump into the very nice large saltwater pool to cool off. Easy walking distance to all of Lahaina, including all the great shops and restaurants. No worries about trying to find a place to park, which is a major hassle in that town. They do charge $15/ day for that privilege but so do most other places and the convenience is great. Like I said, this place is very convenient for people who want to get out and do a lot of activities. It's lousy for people who want to hole up in a fancy hotel room with a beautiful ocean view. Don't just look at the ocean, go get in it!
Oh yeah, they have free high speed wired internet with cables. So bring a laptop you can plug in if you want internet, or have a broadband cellular connection because the wireless is limited. They also have two nice but smallish TV's with cable, but we hardly even turned them on. Watch TV on a one week trip to Maui???
Also, no daily maid service unless you pay extra but do you change your sheets everyday at home??? I prefer to be left alone with no strangers coming into the room everyday.
We love Maui and Lahaina every time we go and the upgraded Aina Nalu was a very pleasant surprise.
