Napili Shores is an oceanfront two story complex of nine buildings perfectly situated on 6.3 acres of picturesque lush tropical grounds;Koi Pond and fountain off Lobby walkway. Located on the south end of Napili Bay, a protected, crescent-shaped, white-sand beach with breathtaking views of Moloka'i and Lana'i islands. Excellent for swimming and snorkeling; most likely sightings here include: sea turtles, colorful reef fish, dolphin pods and monk seals. In season, December-April, the Humpback whales are frequently seen with their young breaching in the waters off the bay! Great spot for families,honeymooners or anyone looking for a special spot to relax.

We share our privately owned 'home away from home' with friends and referrals at reduced rates. Enjoy the ocean and Moloka'i views from this second floor studio which captures the ocean breezes! Parking is free. The kitchen is fully equipped. There is a Queen murphy bed and sofa bed and ceiling fan.

For your convenience there is a registration area with activities desk, fully-equipped laundry room which your room key opens, two pools and jacuzzi, gas barbecues and picnic area with shuffleboard, giant checkers, and croquet. At the oceanfront pool area is the 'Gazebo' where breakfast and lunch are served and free coffee offered in the mornings. It is also a gathering spot to join with family and friends and watch the sunset.

This is a popular location within walking distance to the famous Kapalua Bay and a short drive to Honolua Bay reserve renown for its underwater sea life, occasional spinner dolphin sightings and in the winter surfing on the point. Other activities close by include golf and tennis.

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. Jay and Brenda

The Owner purchased this condo in 2008

Why The Owner chose Maui

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."

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.

Another Wonderful Stay at Napili Shores

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this condo, and if we are able to return again in the future, this studio will be on the top of our list. The owners are great to work with and the condo is lovely and accurately represented in the photos.

The location within the complex is really nice, too, in that you have afternoon shade and the angle of the building provides decent privacy and a beautiful view from the lanai over the grounds, the Gazebo Restaurant and across the ocean to Molokai.

This condo offers terrific value - the Napili location, with the nice Napili Shores amenities, at an affordable price. Thanks Brenda and Jay!

Better than the pictures tell! This was the perfect vacation condo...

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a vacation! This condo unit on Napili Shores was the perfect location for our week long vacation in Maui. The balcony overlooking the courtyard actually provides a good view to the ocean and you can see how long the line is for the gazeebo (which is fantastic!). We had planned to simply use it as a home-base without much amenity, but found otherwise as it had everything we needed, including the little things like a couple beach chairs and boogie board, dishware, working fridge, stove, toaster, etc. The location is perfect and nearby many beaches that you can walk to. The Murphy bed was comfy for the 2 of us and allowed for room to stretch out during the day. There's also a hide-a-bed in the couch. The new surf shop on the corner is great, with new gear and cheap prices (half of what we found elsewhere!). Several good restaurants are within walking distance and with a car you can get anywhere on the island from here. We found the best surf near this unit during our trip, too. The snorkeling in Napili Bay and nearby Honolua bay was world-class. I would recommend this unit to anyone and will certainly come back again for our next trip to Maui! This place is better than the reviews and pictures make it look.
