Napili Shores A103 is ultimate Maui luxury. The perfect view and incomparable furnishings make it clear why this unit is called "the Jewel of Napili Bay." This direct oceanfront ground floor unit offers a breathtaking view of the entire Napili Bay and beach, as well as the gorgeous Pacific island of Molokai. Directly in front of you is all the excitement and grandeur of waves breaking over rocks a few yards from your bed and the crescent of beautiful white sand of Napili Bay.
A103 has been luxuriously decorated featuring exquisite granite counter tops and dining peninsula, custom tile, an elegant kitchen, plasma TV, wireless internet, African mahogany breakfront, desk, kitchen, and bathroom cabinets, the one and only private washer/dryer combination on the property, a Queen Murphy bed with a very comfortable pillow-top mattress, and two single beds that open from two cozy couches.
On your first morning in paradise, you will wake up to the lapping of waves in Napili Bay a few steps from your lanai, to the birds serenade, and the sweet scent of tropic flowers. Then you are faced with a major decision. Do you walk a few steps to the famous Gazebo Restaurant to savor their delicious Macademia Nut Pancakes with coconut syrup for breakfast? Or sit by the pool and watch for whales (from December through April) with a cup of coffee, compliments of the Gazebo? Or should you walk around the cove to snorkel with the turtles while they are just waking up? Or work up an appetite by playing tennis a short walk away in beautiful Kapalua?
The Napili Shores property is known for its extraordinary Pacific views, two full-size pools, hot tub, poolside barbeque, two outstanding on-site restaurants, manicured tropical grounds, and many additional amenities including tennis and championship golf courses nearby. You may rent or purchase water sports gear on property at Water Works Sports.

Right outside the patio door is a grass lanai to lounge on, with the ocean just beyond. Waves and sounds of the sea put you to sleep at night. The property is on the far left (south) of Napili Bay, just above the rocky tide pool area. The Gazebo restaurant is just feet to the south, the public access lane feet to the north. The ocean is the focus, we did nothing at Napili Shores itself, although it was available and inviting. The "winter" weather was occasionally windy and wet, so we snorkeled mostly on the right smooth side of the bay, also south Maui and Lanai on a boat trip. We used the beach chairs and boogie board provided. The Kapalua Coastal trail was glorious and we ended up with lunch at the Beach "Shack" at the Ritz Carlton right on the water. Great food at the Sea House on Napili Bay, also Merriman's (very close) and Mama's Fish House across the island. The accommodations were great for two in the Queen wall-bed, but would be tight for four (also using 2 loveseat sofa beds). The kitchen and bathroom sinks are both beautiful, but not very practical. The refrigerator, dishwasher and washer/dryer were definitely a plus and let us cook a little and deal with all those wet clothes. A very enjoyable week was spent in this beautiful location.
The oceanfront studio condo was everything we expected it to be from the pictures and information provided on VRBO. The space was great for the two of us. It had everything we needed. The murphy bed was surprisingly very comfortable. The lanai was the very best part and we enjoyed time just relaxing there enjoying scenery and sounds of the water. We spent every morning with our coffee on the lanai. Having the Gazebo restaurant right next door was a bonus and their food was fantastic. This was close to shopping which was very convenient. We made reservations for the Road to Hana and the Sunrise Bike Tour through the concierge at the office. It was a fantastic vacation. We would do it all over again in a heart beat. Aloha!
This unit was in an ideal location. It provided a great view of, and easy access to the beach. The unit was updated with everything we needed to cook and clean. The in-room washer/dryer was a big plus. The unit had beach chairs, boogey boards and snorkel equipment. All of which we used often. The sea life in and around the area is tremendous. The unit is only a few steps from The Gazebo Restaurant which serves a great breakfast and one of two pools. There are several gas barbecues close by so you aren't stuck indoors cooking. The complex is close to a grocery store and other points of interest. We had a great time and hope to return soon.
Sue's condo on Napili Bay is simply fantastic, the unit is in a prime location with extremely easy access. Ocean front unit is 20 steps to a world class beach and amazing snorkeling. Every day we saw numerous turtles. The onsite restaurant is very good and reasonable. The unit itself although small has a very good use of space, in unit washer and dryer are an added plus. And last but definitely not least, is Sue herself, an absolute joy to work with, super fast to respond to calls for help and an intimate knowledge of her property, 5 stars all the way around!
Loved this place. We were drawn to the view right on our own patio! We sat and watched snorkelers, paddle borders, and turtles in Napili Bay. We watched the colors of the water change as rain came through, then the rainbow came out afterwards. Lovely!
I spent weeks researching the right beach and condo for my family of 4. I knew a high rise condo wasn't for us and wanted somewhere we could experience the beaches without hordes of people. This was the perfect location. Napili is an intimate beach with less crowds. Sue's condo was perfect for what we needed and well appointed. I was a little concerned about the studio size for all 4 of us, but was a exactly as advertised. I felt we had enough of room- just as big as a typical hotel room (if not bigger) once the beds were put away. Honestly, we spent most of our condo time on the lanai enjoying the view and the kids playing shuffle board or giant checkers in the back of the condo. My only regret was leaving.
Napili Shores resort is located north of Lahaina on Maui's Western Coast. The condo looks directly onto gorgeous Napili Bay with its crescent shaped white sandy beach.
World famous Kapalua Resort is minutes away, with world class golf and restaurants.
