Overview

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.

About Mark Deakos

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

Why Mark Deakos chose Napili

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?

What makes this house unique

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.

Super cozy!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I came to Maui for a friend's wedding and we loved staying at Mark's house! The house was cozy and super quiet- so easy to fall asleep at night. Mark was a very gracious host and the house had everything we need to make our own meals, do laundry, etc. We are not people who want to spend our money on amenities of a hotel- we would rather come back to a cozy place that feels like home, which is exactly what we got there. The location was great too. The house is just down the hill from a coffee shop, grocery store, and snorkel rental shop and the best beaches are just a quick drive away (we loved Ka'anapali beach and Kapalua Bay). And Mark's cat, Mr. Lee, was also a great host! He was always ready to greet us when we came back from our adventures. Remember to bring your own beach towels, as the towels at the house are just for the bath/shower area. Great vacation and we plan to come back and rent here again! Mahalo, Mark!!

Cute house...

  • 3 of 5
Cute & clean cottage. Would be great for travelers who do not plan on hanging around much as it really is about having a place to crash. Would have been fine for just my husband and myself or if our kids were teens... but people with small children should pay the extra money and hit up a resort with amenities. The busy road is too close for comfort and I had no safe place to walk or take the kids. House was sufficient and cute but we unfortunately hit a heat wave so my children were having a hard time as the house was hot even with fans... we had to end up leaving early and going to a resort with a/c. Mark was very pleasant though.

Awesome Stay!!

  • 4 of 5
We stayed from Sept. 2nd - Sept. 8th. 6 nights. This was our yearly girls trip. Only 4 of us could go this year. We usually have 7 in our group. We had an awesome time. Very convenient location. Mark was very pleasant to meet. If we could ever afford it, we would definitely come again. We tried the fruit. Some of us liked it and some of us didn't. But some of us are also allergic. The house had every thing we needed. My only disappointment would be that it could either use more fans or at least have a small air conditioner for those really hot days. We apparently picked the hottest part of the summer to come stay. Ever room does have a ceiling fan, but it was still very warm in the house during the day. The nights are excellent. So I purchased a fan to help circulate the air. Which now belongs to Mark's house. Hopefully it helps out the next tenants. We did also have an ant problem. Not a very big one, but you do need to make sure NOT to leave any food out. Not even a crumb. Our group doesn't spend much time at any location we stay. We are usually out and about all day. So this was perfect for us. There is no need to spend thousands of dollars on a hotel or condo if you are not going to be in it much. This had a great price and suited us just fine. I know you will all enjoy it as much as we did. Mahalo Mark.

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.

Great deal

  • 5 of 5
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!
