Napili Shores Oceanfront Upper End Unit with Vaulted Ceilings

Bedrooms Studio
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

Condo, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-4)

Napili Bay is one of Maui's most precious beaches and bays. This half moon bay is terrific for snorkeling, boogie boarding, even surfing. Fish, coral reefs and turtles are found in this intimate bay. At certain times of year, whale watching is essential, educational and inspiring. One can swim with the turtles. They cluster out in front of this unit off the rocks and around the corner at "turtle bay". Watch the sunset every night from your lanai while looking across at the light and magic show of Molokai.

This unit is a second floor, end unit with vaulted ceiling. It is the best location in the complex! (that's why I bought it - location, location, location). Unlike ground floor units, this unit is completely private. The view from the lanai looks directly at Molokai. Sunset Mai Tais from the lanai every night is not to be missed! Out the door is the pool, barbeques, and the very famous Gazebo Restaurant - all oceanfront. 6 acres of lush landscaping. Minutes to Kapalua for golf and tennis. 30 seconds to Napili Bay. 7 minutes to Kaanapali and 12-15 minutes to Lahaina.

About Stephanie Witt

My name is Stephanie Witt. I bought my unit in 2000 sight unseen! I had been staying at Napili Shores for years with friends. I am in real estate, so location, location, location was a top priority for me. I-276 is far and away the best location in the complex. It is upper floor(therefore private), end uint with vaulted ceilings. The sound of the surf, the sunsets are amazing, not to mention the whale watching and turtle surfing.

Stephanie Witt purchased this condo in 2000

Why Stephanie Witt chose Maui

I had lived on Maui in the 1970's for 4 years and then moved to Oahu. I am back to where my heart is. Maui is Wowee! It is a blend of Oahu, Kauai and all the Islands.

What makes this condo unique

Oceanfront, whale watching, and relaxation. Entertaining my friends at sunset on the lanai. See ing the ocean from every corner of the unit! Sleeping next to the sliding doors, which I keep oepn all day and night.

This is without question the best unit at Napili Shores. My wife and I stayed there for Thanksgiving week and were completely happy with the accommodation. It directly overlooks the rocky shore, and we found the sound of the waves very soothing at night. Other than the sound of the waves, it was completely quiet. Magnificent sunset views from the lanai. Close to one of the two pools, the Gazebo Restaurant, barbecue facilities, and a short walk to the beach. There is no air conditioning anywhere in the complex, but we kept the large sliding glass door open all night and there are both a ceiling fan and a standing floor fan. Stephanie, the owner, is extremely nice, helpful, and responsive. Highly recommended.

Best unit at Napili Shores!

  • 5 of 5

We have had the luxury to staying in this beautiful condo for a week and we are sad to leave. This has to be the best unit in the complex. It is a front row seat for the evening sunsets, it's on the 2nd floor which means more privacy, it's close to the beach access, pool and Gazebo, and it's very close to the ocean. Sleeping at night with the sliding door open and listening to the waves was our favorite. The condo is well appointed with everything you need and it has been updated a bit, which makes it more comfortable. I highly recommend it and we are so thankful to have found it. We will be back again someday! Thank you!

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

It's hard for us to imagine staying anywhere else. We spent all of our breakfasts

and dinners on the lanai - the views, the sound of the surf, and the sunsets

were outstanding. The suite is nicely furnished, well stocked with

utensils, dishes, and pretty well anything else one might need for cooking

and eating. The bed is comfortable and situated perfectly for the fabulous


Helpful information regarding local services and features of the areas is provided. For example we used the information on local hiking trails. Next time we'll make greater use of the beach stuff, e.g the chairs, but did use the beach towels.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your kind words about my little grass shack by the sea! I too love my second home - not just a rental, but my second love. Hope to see you again sometime. Happy New Year and Mahalo for sharing, Stephanie

Slice of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Location was perfect. View was extraordinary. Inside the condo it was well laid out and surprisingly cool!

Only small beef was that wifi was spotty. Otherwise, paradise!

The Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for 10 days, and had to tear myself away from this place. There's a huge difference between staying in an impersonal rental and someone's second home: a friend stayed during the same period right on Napili beach, and although her unit was lovely it lacked: kitchen scissors, food storage bags, a Britta water filter system, a blender, choice of two coffee makers (and filters), beach chairs and beach towels, everything you need to cook just about anything, and lots of dishes and glasses to serve it on, a dishwasher, dimmer switches - even a magnifying mirror on a stand for makeup :-)! I had everything I needed to settle in, including spices and condiments in the kitchen and wifi internet. I've been able to stay in this place at least four times over the years, and am still thrilled by the constant sounds of the surf and the grogeous, full-on view of Molokai across the channel. The owner has made it perfect, because it's where she stays herself. It's a private paradise, right in the middle of the best environment on Maui - Napili Bay. No high rises, no huge crowds, just mellow people enjoying the best of Maui - I can't recommend it enough! I wanted to bottle the Maui air and bring it home with me. Ahhhhhhhh - I'll be back!

NorCal couple

Small studio, rather unremarkable but clean and with a great view. Saw whales at a distance from the lanai, very cool to watch! There is now a sports equipment rental shop on-site that makes activivites easier. Wife and I stayed 9 nights, had a couple of minor issues that were resolved quickly. Could use some furniture upgrades. $45 "key Charge" questionable, all units charge it but nothing more than a check-in fee explained the desk clerk.
