About The Owner

What a contrast to LA life! Swimming is a favorite sport and what better place than the warm lovely waters at Napili Bay. Snorkeling along the shores is great fun with all the coral and sea life to view. Hiking is another favorite activity which we find with in easy walking distance from our place.Check out the coastal trail with bird sanctuary along the way. Jay and Brenda

The Owner purchased this condo in 2008

Why The Owner chose Lahaina

We find a relaxing atmosphere here at Napili Shores, we enjoy the beauty of the grounds and friendly service. A small bay with no high rise buildings, great bay to swim,snorkel or paddle and boogie board. In winter there is surfing and most exciting of all the whales breaching off shore!

What makes this condo unique

Protected bay for swimmers, no boats enter this bay. Occasional dolphin pods are spotted off shore. Reefs for snorkeling and usually lots of turtles; close by are hiking trails, golf and tennis. If you don't want to grill or cook, there are fine restaurants in the area including the famous Gazebo at the waters edge for breakfast or lunch on this property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

" Great view of Ocean and Whales" " Brenda and Jay have a great unit at Napili Shores! Modern,clean and comfortable. The fold down murphy bed slept well,enjoyed whale watching from lanai and down by the Gazebo at sunset. Very nice grounds with lots of tropical plans and flowers. Good snorkeling with fish and turtles. Look forward to staying again the next time we are in Maui."

Napili Shores G254 Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting this property for many years and each time we return it is like coming home to our beautiful piece of paradise !!! This unit fills our every need. It's very clean comfortable and has awesome views of the property as well as fantastic views of Napili Bay and the ocean. Who wouldn't be happy seeing a Humpback whale breaching while looking out at the ocean while having your first cup of coffee in the AM?? We highly recommend staying at this property if you like being away from the hustle and bustle of a huge property....that is what draws us to Napili shores every year in January. What a fantastic way to start the New Year!!! We'll be back in January 2018 Mahalo for sharing this beautiful property with us!! Larry and Janet

There are several restaurants nearby and the famous Gazebo located on property for breakfast or lunch! Mahalo, Brenda and Jay

Beautiful unit clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I visited Napili shores as a teenager and it was such a joy to come back here ! The unit was clean , comfortable and had a beautiful view from the Lani . The high vaulted ceilings made the unit feel big and airy .There was a constant breeze that keep us cool and comfortable . The grounds here are gorgeous ! Tons of lush foliage and tropical flowers . Just a short walk to the beach were we saw see turtles every day . Love the unit , love Napili shores and would absolutely come back again . Aloha

The rental was the perfect location - close to the beach (2 minute walk), food, entertainment, snorkeling rental company and snorkeling, and anything else you could imagine.

Within a 10 minute walk, we had access to several beaches, cliff jumping, restaurants, bars, and lots more.

While we were there, the turtles were in bay each day, and one night, we even got to see a couple whales (including a baby trying out its blow hole).

There was a slight mix up in the rooms when we checked in, but she answered the phone right away and fixed it within five minutes. I was impressed with the response.

I would recommend this rental to any couple - it was just fabulous!

My stay at Napili Shores

  • 5 of 5

I liked how light and open this condo is and enjoyed spending time inside as well as on the lanai.(Loved the high ceiling!) Our weather could have been better, but I could always read my book on the my little lanai if the rain cancelled an activity, and there were always things to watch from above. My condo was quiet, private and secure, and as a woman staying alone I even felt able to leave the sliding door open at night.

An excellent value in Napili

  • 4 of 5

This condo provides a lovely place to enjoy the northwest Maui area and is a really good value. It is sited to have a nice view of the ocean from the lanai--great for whale-watching and picturesque views of Molokai across the strait. With a rental car, it is quite easy to get around to many other restaurants, ocean sites, hiking/walking, Napili, Lahaina, and Kapalua. The condo itself is pleasantly decorated, clean, and all the appliances and amenities you might need. There is no towel/linens exchange service, but there is a well-equipped laundry room on the Napili Shores property. We have rented this condo a number of times, and the owners are unfailingly helpful and responsive. A glance at the visitors log book in the room shows that many others have loved staying here as well. We will definitely be coming again.

Great for R&R

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous view! Comfortable accommodations! includes WiFi! Considerate landlords! We fell in love with Napili Shores the first time we saw it. This unit has a great ocean view for a reasonable price. In the winter you can see the whales. The beach is just a short walk and the 2 pools are scrumptious. For R & R it can't be beat. We try to come once a year.
