The resort boasts 6 acres of oceanfront on the shores of Napili Bay, 15 minutes north of Kaanapali and 20 minutes north of Lahaina.
The spectacular grounds of Napili Shores overlook the islands of Molokai and Lanai offering stunning sunsets and whale watching opportunities. Walk just a couple of minutes to beautiful, sandy Napili Beach, considered one of the best swimming beaches on the island. Also just a few minutes stroll is the famous Honokeana Cove, a wonderful snorkeling bay and home to many turtles and magnificent sea life.
There are two pools on the property: the 'oceanfront pool' overlooks the bay and the 'upper pool and hot tub' are located in a lush garden setting surrounded by spacious landscaped grounds. Barbeques and picnic tables bring guests together in the evening creating a friendly social atmosphere.
Our beautifully maintained condos are at ground level, with lanais set near the Upper Pool. Updated and well-equipped kitchens, attractive and comfortable furniture, including a comfortable king size bed, flatscreen TV and complimentary internet make your stay very comfortable.
Two restaurants, water sports rental, an activity desk and coin operated laundry are on site. Complimentary parking.
Note: Napili Shores does not have air conditioning. Louvered windows allow cooling from the trade winds. There is a fan over the bed and an additional portable fan.
Dan is a retired airline pilot and Donna is a retired airline operations coordinator. In addition to our home in beautiful Napili Bay we also enjoy time at our ski vacation condo on the mountain at Sun Peaks, BC. Our primary home is in British Columbia. We both have a passion for travel and love the outdoors.
Dan or Donna purchased this condo in 2009
After visiting the Hawaiian Islands many times and staying at a number of different locations we found Napili Bay. It was the true 'tropical paradise' we had been searching for...a perfect balance of activity and socializing with a quaint and peaceful ambiance. Napili Shores resort boasts a friendly, community feel to it with owners and guests returning year after year.
Location is the key. Without driving or even having to cross the road we can swim in the ocean or pool, snorkel, boogie board, walk the shoreline, enjoy whale watching and beautiful sunsets and, of course, the turtles. We have made many friends around the BBQ in the evening.
My partner and I stayed at this property for 8 days in the beginning of August 2016 and it was the perfect place! The unit has everything that we needed. The property is adjacent to an excellent beach that we took sunrise walks each morning and a great snorkeling bay where we swam with turtles and amazing fish. Additionally, the property has three Pokemon Go Pokestops on it, which added to the excitement. We were worried about not having AC, but found that we actually didn't need it. The staff onsite are super friendly! A market is right up the road and we were able to stock up on food for the week. Gas grills are available, which we used most nights. Dan was excellent in providing us with tips about what to do before we got to Maui. Thank you Dan and Donna for opening up your beautiful unit to us. We will definitely be back someday!
My wife and I spend an amazing eight days at the end of October in this great location. I was competing in the Xterra world championships located at the Ritz Carlton which is located down the street. We found the Napili Shores resort much more enjoyable and more our style. The room is located in the perfect spot right across from the pool and walking distance from the beach. The weather was perfect that time of year. We loved the family friendly atmosphere and the fact that after 10pm, the place is so quiet. Everything we needed was close by, so we didn't need to travel much. I was able to easily train in the vicinity before my race. 2 of the professional athletes who came in 1st and 2nd in the race, were also staying at the same resort! Thanks to Dan and Donna for being so accommodating and easy to work with. We will definitely return and stay at their place again.
Dan and Donna have an excellent, affordable place in a great location! The overall condo is very well maintained. Fully equipped kitchen, which we used often! There are also a ton of beach gear that is provided, including chairs, coolers, umbrella, beach toys (for kids), etc. This was so helpful! The Napili Shores overall is very well maintained. The pools are in excellent condition, BBQ right outside our lanai doors. Very family friendly. And you MUST eat breakfast at The Gazebo on the water. They are only open for breakfast and lunch and you can wait for about 1 hour to get in. They open at 7:30AM, but if you want the first seating with little to no wait time, get there to get in line at 7:00AM. Or, you will be waiting! They are known for their breakfast and people come from other hotels just to eat there. The Napili Bay has excellent beach access and snorkeling. There were multiple turtles each day we went out in the water. Very busy on the weekends, again people come from other hotels to snorkel in the Napili Bay. The water is crystal clear and it's like you are swimming in a aquarium! We have been to Maui before and Napili is by far our favorite spot. Highly recommended! Kapalua is just up the road (less than .5 miles), which has nice running and walking trails open to the public.
Only CON: There is no air conditioning in the unit. It was really hot while we were here and only had an overhead fan over our bed and a small free-standing black fan that I kept close to the bed. It was honestly hard to sleep at night, but if you can live without AC, this is a great, affordable place to have a vacation! Hope this review was helpful!
Great place to hang out and snorkel. Quiet area for a peaceful getaway
Thank you to Dan and Donna for making your condo available. Your information and accessibility before we booked, was so helpful.
The resort has a very friendly, family-orientated, feel. A friend visiting us there said it felt like summer camp. BBQ areas are easily accessible. Gazebo restaurant is really a fun place to try out for breakfast. Napili beach is the most fun beach on Maui, and there are laughs-a-minute with the wave action on the beach throwing kids and adults alike, onto the shore on their bogie boards. Snorkeling in the next bay over is phenomenal. Only negative comment would be the potential for noise some evenings from the upper pool area. During the day, pool noise is related to little kids playing, which is fun to hear, but adult noise at night is a bit annoying. I asked people to quiet down one night, and they would not, however there is an enforced quiet time after 10 p.m, which the front-desk adheres to.
The condo is extremely well-stocked, and were grateful for the appliances, utensils, and condiments/spices available!
Napili shops are well-stocked and I didn't find them exorbitant.
Yes we would love to come back! Overall this is a very reasonably priced holiday destination in a great location.
Donna and Dan were so very nice to work with us and accommodate our daughters for our
wedding. Thx you again. The place is perfect the girls and loved it and the convenience to visit us next door at Napili Point. (In the past we stayed at Napili Shores and loved it but thought we'd upgrade to a larger unit at Napili Point, if we had it to do over again our perfect stay is at Napili Shores. I don't think you can beat it for area, restaurant onsite,
ambiance...Just love it here, great pools and hot tub. Thumbs up to the IMU restaurant onsite. My husband gives it stars, food is great the owner gets 5 stars plus. Mahalo
