Relax and take in the majestic beauty of this One-Bedroom stunning Ocean and Sunset view condo resort. This property is located on the ground level of a two-story resort. This location allows you the luxury of enjoying the absolutely dreamy view from your lanai patio, while at the same time watching your children play on the beautiful grounds surrounding you. Being the original owners, we take great pride in offering a warm, welcoming, and friendly atmosphere that promises to take your breath away.
Our unit was extensively remodeled in 2007 with all new kitchen counter tops and appliances, bathroom, carpet and furniture. This year we now have new kitchen cabinets. It is fresh and new and we love it as we know you will as well.
There is a reason that Napili Shores is named 'Maui's Best Kept Secret' by Travel and Leisure magazine, and once you are there - you will see why. With spectacular snorkeling, swimming, surfing, body boarding, five Championship golf courses, and beautiful hiking trails within minutes of your condo you will never be bored. There is an array of award-winning restaurants within miles, as well as several grocery stores available close by so you can enjoy your very own home-cooked meal on the lanai.
Napili Shores is home to the 'Gazebo Restaurant' which continues to hold the title as the BEST Macadamia Nut Pancakes in Hawaii. You can also indulge in the complimentary coffee that is served pool-side each morning. The 'Maui Grill' Restaurant is conveniently located on-site and serves dinner each evening. There are also two sparkling pools - one is heated with a whirlpool spa, and one located oceanfront is a fresh-water pool.

Our family has the privilege of owning this property for over 35 years, with our parents owning it before us. It is a very special place to our family, and we truly believe you will feel the same. This is not your ordinary vacation spot. It offers an element of love and will leave you with special memories that will last a lifetime. When you bring your family here, you will want to return. We love the openness of the landscape, the peaceful and tranquil ocean setting, the access to so many amazing and adventurous activities, and the very friendly people. We are friends with many of the owners at the resort, and are happy to arrange other units if you are planning a vacation with additional family members and friends.

Napili Shores offers access to many great sandy beaches. Marvel at the 'Hono' turtles swimming each morning as you enjoy breakfast and coffee at the Gazebo Restaurant. It is also a must to explore the tide pools at the base of the resort. Napili Shores is a magical place that is sure to leave an impression. You are invited to visit.
We have just returned from our 6th 2 week New Year holiday at Napili Shores- our 4th in this unit. From the first stay here we now reserve it the minute we know when we are planning to return because we love it so much. We've already booked for 2014. In our view this is one of, if not the best units at Napili Shores and that Napili Shores is the best place to stay on Napili Bay. Napili Bay itself is spectacular with something for the whole family, it has a lovely beach for those wanting to snorkle, look for sea turtles and or just rerlax and play in the waves. For those visitors with small children a short walk towards Napili Kai is lagoon like still water. Napili is a special and tranquil place enjoyed by visitors and locals alike and for those times you crave the hustle and bustle Kaanapali and Lahaina is just minutes drive away. There is a magnifient ocean view from this first floor lanai, BBQ grills are close-by-but not too close and the main pool and jacuzzi a 1-2 minute walk. The unit is very clean, recently renovated with fully equipt kitchen and beach items. We have been renting from these owners for years and while we have never met we feel like we know Jeanne personally. She has been so kind : we are always greeted with a welcoming card and some special treats. She has called each New Year's Day to wish us a happy new year and to make sure we've settled in OK : and her e-mail correspondence throughout the year while very professional ia also very friendly. We are truly grateful we stumbled upon this listing years ago and hope that we will have many more stays in the years to come.
Our stay at Napilii Shores was absolutely wonderful!
The unit is super clean and as previous reviews have already mentioned, it comes with beach chairs, boogie boards and beach towels. It has ocean view, is minutes away from the beach and you can hear the waves in a distance. Just a marvelous place to spend your vacation regardless of age! We traveled with two 17 yo boys, and they loved it too!
We rented snorkel equipment on site. The price is similar to other places, the quality is good and the pick-up is quick. After trying different places for snorkeling, we ended up liking Napili Bay the best. It is easy to get in to, and if you go past the outer reef, you'll see turtles, but be mindful of the swells. We saw turtles by the rocks too, just below the Gazebo, and whales in a distance.
We ordered take-out breakfast from the Gazebo (after 8AM) to avoid the line, or waited until lunch at 11-11.30 when the line was shorter. In our opinion, their pancakes were just so-so and served with Cool-Whip but their Cajun Chicken was great and nothing could beat the view!
We also had take-out from Iron Imu BBQ. Their ribs were excellent, their chorizo stuffed chicken fantastic and the price really reasonable especially if you make your own sides.
If you have time, walk to the Seaside Restaurant at the other end of the beach. Beautiful setting! Check their Happy Hour, and go there for a drink and an early dinner. It gets pricey after 5 PM. Shoes and shirts required.
Thank you Jeanne for being such a great host. We will definitely try to come again!
Thanks SO much for an amazing week! We loved every second of our trip at Napili Shores vacation. Our 1 and 3 year old loved roaming the courtyard for hours on end. Our unit was the perfect location close to both pools, but also a safe distance away from them!
Jeanne was easy to deal with and helped in anyway she could to make our vacation relaxing and stress free. Unit was exactly as described and suited us so well. We cooked breakfast, lunch and bbq'd dinner outside. Meals on the Lanai were so fun with the incredible view. Can't wait to return in the future, my three year old is still talking about it!
Just finished spring break with my wife and daughter and it could not have gone any better. The unit was great; quiet, well kept grounds, beautiful views, good location, and well equipped. Jeanne was responsive and easy to work with. While I enjoyed sitting on the patio to listen and watch the ocean (tore my ACL 2 weeks before leaving) there was plenty to keep my daughter busy. She snorkel with the turtles in Honokeana Cove, paddle boarded in Napili Bay, and took surf lesson down the road in Lahaina. We took a day trip to the winey at Ulupalakua and the volcano at Haleakalā National Park. It is not a difficult drive and there is some beautiful country to be seen. At Haleakala we broke through the clouds at 8000 feet and had a spectacular sunset at the summit. It was what a vacation is suppose to be, fun and relaxing.
This Napili home was just the perfect retreat for my wife and I to celebrate our 25th anniversary. 1 bedroom, super clean and comfortable with everything you'd need from pots & pans to boogie boards and lawn chairs.
The views from the ground level lanai are drop dead gorgeous and we loved the ease of walking out our patio doors onto the lawn to see whales breaching in the distance - no - really!
The owners are super nice and checked in with us before we left, and to our delight, there was a very thoughtful card and bottle of wine for us wishing us a happy anniversary - how nice is that?
The resort is low key but well kept. I'd say 3 to 3.5 star without the stuffiness of a 5 star place.
The grounds are nice, two pools, and the beach really is about 20 yards away.
Napaili itself is amazing - on the north west side of the island with stunning views of the ocean and Molokai.
What my wife and I enjoyed the most was the 'ease' of access to a variety of tastes.
- Walk along Napili beach, or sun tan, or boogie board, or paddle board.
- hike up pineapple hill for a good walk or if you're an athlete, run up the hill and down to flemming beach.
- explore a different beach every day - each one stunning - Napili, Kapalua, Onealeo, DT flemming, and so on.
- Lounge over coffee in the early morning on the Lanai or read the paper in the early afternoon.
- Have a glass of wine while watching Whales breach or watch kids playing on the green grass lawns.
- or if your up for a short drive, head down to Lahaina for an evening,
-if you're more of a national geographic kind of person, drive north along the coast, rugged and raw.
Like I said, relaxing, romantic, adventurous - you choose.
We had a wonderful holiday in Napili staying at Napili Shores in this unit. My husband, 8 month old son and I stayed for 1 week and thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful view, the short walk to the pool, beach and sitting area to watch the sunset. It is a perfect location for people with small children as you are never more than a few minutes from the unit if someone needs to nap or have a snack. It was a great relief not to have to pack for the whole day with a young baby. The unit is very well equipped - the beach gear was wonderful to have. The other residents are very friendly as are the staff at the front desk. The only drawback was the truck - perhaps for deliveries - that came early each morning outside the bedroom and was noisy. We love Napili Bay, and have always wanted to bring our family here one day, and this unit was definitely exactly what we were looking for. Jeanne was extremely helpful in planning our stay and easy to get a hold of with questions. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!
We had a fantastic holiday here. The unit has a great location (with a lovely view of the ocean, as you can see frm the photos) and is very well equipped (including beach gear!). Jeanne was very responsive, organized and helpful, even providing us with recommendations on where to rent a crib for our 1yr old. Absolutely a five star experience and we are already looking forward to returning. Thanks Jeanne!
