I had room 1 and it was incredible! Beautiful studio layout with full kitchen and bathroom with a walk out lanai right on the water. Perfect for someone not looking for a resort/kids running and screaming around. Watch the sunset right on your patio. Laura also provides laundry machines and snorkel/swimming gear free of rent if you want to use. Located in a perfect area you can walk to the shops at Lahaina and a quick drive to anywhere else on the island. Definitely recommend!

Property was as described and the cleanest place I have stayed at in Hawaii. The location was awesome. The only thing I would change would be to have air conditioning.

I loved the home feeling we got when we arrived. It is truly one of the last Locally Owned Hotels left. We felt VERY secure, taken care of, and pleased with our location to the Ocean. We would book again with this location. Thanks Laura for a GREAT stay!

Location, location, location

Pros: The location was great, staff was eager to answer questions, and provided fine linen and cleaning services
Cons: Weak WiFi coverage in my end unit made it unusable Could offer a limited pre-arrival grocery shopping service Provide a small in-room TV or monitor
Location: Only a nice 20 min. walk to the Lahaina Marina and the main town area. From there's loads of shops, restaurants, and activities to choose from
Great location, right on the ocean, within walking distance to town (1.3 miles), and 3 blocks to Safeway. Room, Kitchen, appliances and all utensils were clean

Aloha Joe, Mahalo for the positive review. I am sorry you had an issue with the Wifi, we just installed a new modem that should have helped extend the range. I am always happy to pre shop for groceries for guests and will often do it, especially those guests arriving after hours. Unfortunately, we will never have TV's in any of the rooms, except the Captain's Quarters. This room was initially set up as the owners unit, so we were able to keep the cable. With such an intimate setting, having TV's could alter the atmosphere for those not interested in them. We hope you will stay with us again, next time perhaps in the Captain's Quarters? Aloha

Island Perfection

I had a really enjoyable stay at Ocean's Edge. The view was amazing and my room was extremely comfortable and the owner and staff were all very friendly and helpful. This isn't a major resort so it was very low key and laid back.... kinda like island life in general. Honestly the only draw back for me was that there was no beach access at the hotel, but everything else is in a short walk and you do get to sit at the seawall at the hotel.

Felt like we found Paradise

Pros: Quiet, small, on the ocean, owner very helpful and friendly.
Location: Perfect location. Nearby excellent restaurants, Old Lahaina Luau, shopping, grocery store and boats to go out fishing, snorkeling or whale watching.
This hotel was just what we expected and wanted. We needed a quiet place to unwind from our busy lives for a week. Our room was directly facing the water. We enjoyed waking to the singing of the birds in the palm trees, seeing whales breaching in the distance, watching turtles popping their heads out of the ocean and seeing tropical fish swim by. The sound of the waves breaking put us right to sleep at night. Saw some beautiful sunsets too. It's a small hotel and guests would gather in the common seating areas overlooking the water in the morning to enjoy their coffee and breakfast. It was great to have our own kitchen so when we didn't want to eat out we cooked our own meals and enjoyed eating with privacy while enjoying the views. The location was perfect. You can walk to the town with many restaurants and shopping. In Lahaina there are boats to take you out fishing, snorkeling or whale watching. We will return here next year, that's how much we enjoyed our stay!
