Condo # E240 at Napili Shores is conveniently located by the upper pool near the restaurant, koi pond and parking. It is an upper level condo with high vaulted ceilings and a nice lanai. From our condo you are easy walking to: famous Gazebo Restauranat for macadamia nut pancakes, Honokeana Cove to snorkle with sea turtles and Napili Beach to enjoy snorkling, the sun and waves. At the lower pool you get a spectacular view of Moloka'i and Lana'i Islands and white sand beaches. Great place to watch the whales in the winter. Once you stay here you'll keep coming back to experience our brand of paradise.
We are a retired couple and have enjoyed many visits to Napili Shores. We were married on Maui in 1983.
Norm or Sue Hill purchased this condo in 1988
The grounds are spectacular. The staff is friendly. Great whale watching space at the wall by the lower pool.
Get your morning coffee on the deck by the Gazebo as you check out the whales, waves, turtles and whatever else is happening.
We're finally catching our breath after returning Monday and back to work on Tuesday. We had a wonderful vacation. The condo was terrific- absolutely no problem with the dresser; I don't think you need to replace it. The grounds were immaculately groomed. I was surprised that I couldn't hear noises from the other condos, and the no smoking is key. Beautiful condo, beautiful location. The day before we left, we snorkeled at Kaanapali, and I was surprised at how much better the snorkeling is at Napili. Better and more fish, colorful coral, etc. And we actually liked that Napili wasn't always sunny, because when we went to Lahaina for the day, we were really hot!
We definitely will recommend your place to friends. My nephew is getting married in two summers, so we'll be back if the dates match for a rental.
Thank you and take care,
I liked being within walking distance to a beautiful beach. Kitchen necessities were good except there were no hot pads/mitts to use with the oven. I wish I had chosen a place with AC, no AC= noise due to windows being open. Unit is right above one of the pool areas so that was a bit noisy. Bedroom is right next to outside walkway so that was super noisy, people coming and going, talking loud, doors slam shut, and you can't close the windows cause it's too warm and besides the windows are shutter type that don't really provide much noise insulation anyway. Could use a better/brighter light over the kitchen area. Couldn't get dining light to work even after changing the light bulb. Found 2 cockroaches, one very large dead one under the sofa bed next to an old goldfish cracker. Alive small baby cockroach in kitchen-killed. I totally understand cockroaches are everywhere in warm tropical climates though. Sofa bed was very uncomfortable. Sofa beds are just terrible anyway, I've never found one to be comfortable. Could use 1 or 2 extra blankets. There was only a sheet and a decorative comforter/bedspread for the main bedroom and only one for the sofa bed. Main bedroom bed was comfortable as well as the pillows. A couple beach towels would be nice, we had to buy some and lug them back in our suitcase. Farmers market a short distance away, every Wed morning, bought some interesting fruits and yummy Apple bananas. grocery store and a few small restaurants are close. Gazebo restaurant on-site, great breakfast and the waitresses were awesome, coconut syrup for pancakes, super yummy. Gazebo opens at 0730 but long line already formed by 0700 seating is very limited.
We enjoyed our stay at this condo. Great price, great location. The complex was lovely, enjoyed the pool and grounds and proximity to the beach. Enjoyed many BBQ's with family and friends. The condo had everything we needed to cook meals and was clean.
Don’t stay here. We booked 9 nights and were sorely disappointed. We found the room dirty and in ill repair. When we notified the owner, including photos documenting the condition of the unit, his only response was to forward our complaint to the maid service. Issues were a combination of cleanliness and condition, with the owner ultimately responsible. Subsequent contact was not returned.
Pictures of the living area are not representative (blue couch with pink flowers). Living room furniture was the absolute worst – worse than a frat couch – filthy, ripped, hot-glue patched and erupting stuffing. I literally was scared to sit on it for fear I’d carry something home. LR chair was also patched and busted. Walls had dust hanging on them (fans and light chains too) & had spills/splatters that needed to be wiped down. Patio screen was ripped. Some of the outlets didn’t work. There was no working drain stopper in the BA. Refrigerator handles were painted over – not sure why…. While they were at it, it would have been helpful if someone could have painted degree settings on the oven knob – they were missing. We had to eyeball setting the oven for anything above 300.
This unit is tired and outdated. Décor I can deal with. Forking over nearly $XXXX.XX for a room in this condition and zero customer service I cannot. One’s first clue from this owner & his website - there is no contact number listed. All correspondence was via email.
I feel sorry for those already booked. Unless this unit gets some TLC, they don’t know what they’re in for. There are far nicer units at this resort and in West Maui that are priced same range or less, with owners who care about their unit and their guests. Maui Dream Condo? I think not.
I have been to this resort several times before. It was an excellent value, the location is phenominal and can't be beat. I will be back, and will more than likely bring back the rest of our family, hoping to do a reunion there in about 2 years! Wish us luck and make sure you stay here!
