MAUI ON A BUDGET - LARGE PLANTATION HOME NEAR BEACH - $75 AUGUST SPECIAL!

Napili House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Why spend an extra $50 - $200 per night on where you sleep? Why not spend that extra money whale watching, snorkeling, fishing, dining, or experiencing Maui's endless activities?

Take advantage of the most affordable vacation rental in West Maui. This cute, spacious, and very clean 2 bedroom 1 bathroom home is located in beautiful Napili on the oceanside of the Lower Rd. The two bedrooms include a master bedroom with a Posturepedic Queen bed, and a second room with a trundle bed (beds can be joined to make a king bed or split to make 2 twins). Newly renovated, this quiet home offers a fully furnished kitchen, and very spacious living and dining room areas, everything you need to be comfortable without the outrageous cost.

This plantation home sits on a large 10,000 square foot property with plumeria, guava, mango, papaya, and banana trees. A five minute walk takes you to a beautiful, quiet beach where sunsets are magnificent. A 10 minute walk takes you to the Napili Plaza where all the ameniites (post office, ATM, grocery store, restaurants, pharmacy, beauty salon, and snorkel set rentals) are available. A Weber gas BBQ and a washer/drier are also at your disposal. Depending on what is fruiting in the garden or on the trees, fresh fruits and veggies may also be available.

The property owner, a doctoral graduate in marine biology, lives in a studio connected to the main house. If he is not off-island on a research cruise in some remote part of the world, he would be happy to advise you on where to experience the best of Maui's underwater beauty. Recently acquired are three egg-laying hens, which provide three fresh eggs each day. No roosters so you barely know they are there and they are a lot of fun to watch. A very people friendly cat named Ali'i (a.k.a. Mr. Lee) lives on the owner's side but if you are sitting outside, he will come say hello and jump in your lap for a little TLC. So if you dislike cats, this rental is not for you. Otherwise, this can be your home away from home while you explore the beauty of Maui.

Welcome to my beautiful home. I'm originally from Montreal, Canada, but found my paradise here on Maui where I have lived for the past 17 years. I am a marine biologist having spent the better part of my last 20 years studying whales and dolphins all over the world. More recently I obtained my doctoral degree learning about Maui's manta rays. Now I spend most of my time devoted to my non-profit, The Hawaii Association for Marine Education and Research, Inc., pursuing its mission to preserve Hawaii precious marine resources through sound research and education. I look forward to telling you all about the beauty of the underwater world available to you just offshore of my beautiful home.

Mark Deakos purchased this house in 2004

I spent the past 17 years studying the endangered humpback whale here in Maui, the best place in the world to study them on their breeding ground. Where else would anyone want to buy a home?

The home is located on 10,000 square feet with beautiful plumeria, guava, mango, and banana trees. It is 15 minutes north of Lahaina, close enough to gain access to all their activities and restaurants while enjoying the tranquility and beauty of the upper west side. The sunsets are spectacular from the beach only a 5 min walk from the house. Bring a beach chair, a beverage, and soak in the beauty. A ten minute walk up the hill is Napili market where the post office, grocery store, ATM, and restaurants are available for your convenience. Or stop in at Boss Frog's for some affordable snorkel gear and enjoy the many turtles, fish, and beautiful corals. In the winter months, listen closely and you just might hear humpback whales singing.

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5
Mark's house was perfect for us. We didn't want to be in a condominium, crammed in with loads of other families and the house gave us a good amount of space, a little removed from the crowds but close enough to the beaches and the facilities to make it a very convenient base.
The house is roomy and clean with a 'lived in' feel (it's not 'smart, modern and stylish' but then it doesn't claim to be)
Mark was courteous and helpful and there was an array of beach stuff available which was useful for us as we'd traveled from the UK and wouldn't have had room for a beach umbrella!
Would come back again if we can ever get the money together.

Spent 3 great nights at Mark's home. We highly recommend this home. It is convenient to so many beaches and Lahaina. Loved the outdoor shower, washer/dryer and fresh eggs. Would definitely stay here again.

This was our first trip to Maui and We enjoyed our stay very much. Mark was available to give great ideas of where to go and what to see. Mark spoiled us with fresh papaya several times, and the yard is filled with beautiful plumeria trees. My sister loved Mr. Lei the cat. We'll be back. Thank you so much!

Disappointed

  • 1 of 5
The owner was nice. The home is older than it appears in the pictures. You can walk to a beach from here, however the nice beach we had to drive to. Getting out of the driveway is hazardous. The only bathroom should be updated. It was a bed to sleep in while we were there.

Perfect Maui Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four spent nine days in this lovely home and it met all of our needs. The owner Mark has done a great job decorating this home with an island feel so that you can just sit back, relax, and enjoy the beauty of the island. The landscaping is beautiful, and there are herbs and a garden in the backyard that you are welcome to use in your daily cooking. The house provides all of the essentials to cook in and save a significant amount of money. We did enjoy some meals out (happy hour at the Sea House and Maui Tacos), but made most meals using the well stocked kitchen and grill. We had never stayed in Napili before but we absolutely love it. We love the outdoors and spent most of our time on the island snorkeling, this location was perfectly located by several fantastic beaches, our favorite was Kapalua Bay. Thanks to the affordability of this wonderful home, our kids have great memories of turtles, whales,dolphins, eels, and even an octopus. We definitely hope to stay here again.Thank you so much Mark. Mahalo!
