You’ve dreamt of sandy beaches, tropical nights, cool ocean breezes, warm weather and perfectly shaped waves. The only way to make it happen is to take action. Give back to yourself. Nourish. Challenge yourself to something new. And escape to paradise!
Our oceanfront home is the perfect place to create unforgettable memories in a warm, sunny, tropical setting. Our surf pad is located in a gated 30 acre ocean front community nestled along the sunny south shore of historic Lahaina Town. You can relax away from the crowds of the large resort complexes and still have the luxury of being an easy walk or bike to the shops, restaurants and nightlife of Lahaina town. There are three swimming pools (including one right on the ocean), tennis and badminton courts, and large grassy open spaces overlooking the ocean where we’ll do yoga each day.
Our 4 bedroom 3 bath town-home is an incredible spot for our getaways. There are two master en-suites with king size beds. The third bedroom (king) and fourth (two twins) share a nice size bathroom. There is central air conditioning throughout and a washer/dryer for your convenience. We have a spacious kitchen, dining and living area along with an oceanside lanai with an expansive palm tree filled lawn and ocean views which are perfect for unwinding after a morning of surfing.
