It was like visiting your home away from home - but much nicer! The location is absolutely superb, right on Napili Beach - just a few quick steps away from sand and surf. From the lanai you can watch the waves rolling in (not to mention hear them continuously!) and in the evenings see the most beautiful sunsets over Moloka'i island. The condo itself was very well appointed, had everything we needed. Very clean, well maintained and nicely furnished. The property is nice as well with good parking. There is a small market just up the road and grocery stores and shopping are just ten minutes away. If you're not sure where to stay on Maui and you want your own space with quick beach access and beautiful surroundings, Napili Bay 108 is fantastic. We look forward to returning!

This was our first trip to Maui and we felt so fortunate that we found this beautiful condo #108! The size is perfect for 2(mom and I), the location.. really, you can't find a better one than this! It is right on the sand and you can walk to the famous Gazebo to pickup yummy pancakes and eat it at the condo lanai. It is also within walking distance to Water Works(rental shop for all kinds of water sports, nice owner!). We love how this condo is nicely remodeled! Clean and comfy, it has everything we needed. We will for sure be back the next time we are in Maui. Thank you dear owner for sharing his wonderful place with us! Mahalo!

This beautiful condo is situated so close to the water you can hear the waves day and night. It is a bit on the small side, but is equipped with every amenity one could ask for. The kitchen is clean and well stocked, the wi-fi worked very well, and there is an ipod dock which we enjoyed very much. The water is just outside your door and the swimming and snorkeling were great. The downside to this is that other beachgoers are right in front of your lanai and the beach gets very busy. But we enjoyed our stay very much. It gets very peaceful after the sun goes down and in the early morning before the crowds arrive.

This was our second time at the resort. This is an awesome condo to stay at if you are looking for a quaint and directly on the beach experience with beautiful sunsets. No 15 minute walk to the beach and no wait for elevators. This resort is all about a superb beach vacation! The snorkeling was the best we have ever experienced. The turtles were unbelievable and I even saw a sting ray in the bay!! The condo was immaculate and the kitchen outfitted with everything you could possibly need . The #1 place for breakfast on Maui, The Gazebo is a 5 minute beach walk and the Sea House restaurant at the other end or the Bay is excellent as well and both require no driving. Can't say enough about the condos, we booked another trip next spring before we left!! There is one thing that I must mention is that the condos are not air conditioned. The ocean breeze is usually enough to keep it comfortable unless it is humid, we did experience a couple of humid days but nothing the ocean couldn't cure . Heaven on Earth!!!

Other guests were friendly and considerate- absolutely quiet at night. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

This was our first time at Napili Bay Resort - we are already planning on coming back again. When you open the door you see nothing but ocean - it's phenomenal! The room was impeccably clean. The amenities were amazing - including an iPod docking station. Everything is at your fingertips - boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrella - it was simply amazing and the best time ever.

We loved Napili Bay condo #108. Chuck was very friendly and helpful when we were booking.

We very much enjoyed being so close to the ocean, listening to the waves at night. I would definitely return to Condo #108. It certainly didn't bother us at all but, if you are looking for a very quiet and private condo I would recommend renting a garden view unit instead as this suite/lanai overlooks the beach which was busy during the day. Also there was a strong mothball odor in the condo which seemed to dissipate with all windows open and fans blowing.

My husband and I stayed in Condo 108 for a week in april. For us, it was perfect and exactly what we had hoped! We are very low key and liked having a condo to ourselves, where we could cook our own meals, and eat them on the lanai looking out over the beach to people watch, look for sea turtles and whales spouting in the distance (there were binoculars in the condo). We intended to drive our rental car to Lahaina for dinners out, but ended up cooking every dinner on the barbecues (we purchased groceries in Kahului on or day trips) and looked forward to our private lanai dinners. We also made good use of the blender for tropical cocktails! Perhaps it was the time of year, but we saw no bugs, nor had any complaints about cleanliness. The only thing we noticed was that folks sitting on adjacent lanais did not seem to realize that their conversations were easily overheard... The sound of the waves, which we loved, covered most noise from people on the beach. The beach itself felt safe, and true to other reviews, had snorkeling, boogie boarding, and even on higher surf days, people trying to surf! The condo was small, but after 1/2 hr, we stopped noticing. Perfect holiday for people wanting a quiet Maui getaway.

Can I book again now for next year??? Thanks for a wonderful time!

This condo has everything we needed but I found the layout of the kitchen a bit awkward, the tall counter towards the living area could be a bit shorter and the length of the cooking area extended but that was my preference. The shower could be adapted by installing a door or a curtain as the configuration allows the spray from the shower head to bounce out of the stall if not careful. Other than that everything was pretty good. We love sitting on the lanai watching the folks on the beach and the whales.

This condo was exactly as specified on the website. No surprises. The view is exactly as pictured. It is in an excellent location for beach access. The appliances are top-notch and the condo is quite modern with granite countertops and a beautiful bathroom. The bed was very comfortable. We had no problems with bugs. There were more than enough linens and paper goods supplied for our stay. We did not find the rules unreasonable (as another reviewer implied) because almost everything listed were things we wouldn't do anyway. Just common sense. The only reason we're not giving it 5 stars is because of size. It is quite small but really is big enough for two. Plus the use of mirrors prevents it from being claustrophobic. We enjoyed our stay. The sound of the surf is quite loud as someone else mentioned. We didn't find voices on the beach to be a problem. If you walk along the main road toward Kapalua Bay you will find a wonderful coast walk called Kapalua Coast Trail. We unfortunately did not discover it until the day before we checked out but still did the short hike a couple of times. It is very easy and beautiful. The beach here in Napili Bay is quite popular so there were a lot of people on the beach everyday. It is nice for swimming and snorkeling. There is a coffee place up in Napili Square that has a wonderful ice blend mocha drink that my husband thought was better than a Starbucks Frappacino. Occasionally we heard people talking on a neighboring lanai and a couple of times got a whiff of cigarette smoke outside but these were very minor. As someone else mentioned, this is not a resort and there is no maid service, but it is a nice condo to use to enjoy a stay in the tropics.

Fantastic Vacation Location

Had a great weeks vacation staying at Napili Bay in condo 108. Beautiful beach and relaxing atmosphere overall. Great falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the waves rolling in. The apartment had everything we needed for a comfortable stay (although I'd recommend bringing your own pillow to maximize your sleep experience!) The only annoyance during our stay were a group of people from a neighbouring complex who would 'reserve' the shaded area of the beach everyday. We are not sure what the connection was these people had, to be able to put up chain barriers and leave out their beach chairs (even overnight!) so that that area of the beach was permanantly unavailable to other guests. Very cheeky and very selfish. Otherwise, I would definantely recommend a stay at Napili Bay. We are hoping to return there for future vacations!
I've been coming to napili bay for 40 years and have not had that experence. they should not leave those chairs out all night or keep others out of that shaded area. I'm sure that wont happen again.

The condo was just as described, although it was smaller than it looked in the photos. The reviews stated everything was included, but no one stated if a hair dryer or ironing board was included and they were as well as a curling iron. We also were concerned if there would be beach chairs and of course there were. The only thing I couldn't find that we needed was a sheet pan. I liked the decor and the layout of the condo. The beach was gorgeous and right off the lanai. We loved the roar of the ocean surf. We did kill 5(five) roaches though, even though we took out the trash daily and vacuumed daily. We were there during the Tsunami warning and the owner was considerate to phone and advise up to move to higher ground. Unfortunately there were not a lot of restaurants/lounges to walk to. We were hoping for Tiki bars on the beach. We drove to Lahaina every day. We tried to go to one nearby restaurant one morning and the line to get a table was horribly long and they didn't serve cocktails so we again drove to Lahaina. However, if I got the opportunity to return, I would definitely stay in condo 108 again.
This is an immaculate and very pleasant accommodation for two.

I have stayed at three different units at the Napili Bay Resort Condos and each stay and unit has been amazing. I have traveled there with my best friend on our friendships 20th anniversary, traveled with my husband to enjoy a second honeymoon and most recently traveled alone to contemplate life. The property is low-key and right on the best beach in Maui. The water and the sand are beautiful in this spot. There are great restaurants and groceries nearby. It is a quick drive to Lahaina. The sound of the waves will lull you to sleep each night. This particular unit has been beautifully remodeled and is kept up very well, extremely clean, comfortable and practical. You will find everything you need in the kitchen (and the rest of the unit for that matter). This is not a "resort" and if you are looking for a high-end resort experience this may not be the place for you. If you are looking for the true Maui experience, the beach, beautiful views and sunsets, a "real" experience, I promise you that you will not be disappointed. In this unit the beach (public)is literally right outside of the lanai and there will be noise sometimes earlier in the morning than you might like, but remember, there is always time later in the day for a nap!I have burned the beautiful views into my mind to get me through the days at home. As I write this review I wish that I were there on the lanai sipping a cool drink and breathing in the beautiful smells and sounds of this breathtaking place.It is tempting to keep this place a secret, to be sure I can get in the next time the opportunity presents itself, but it would be selfish to hide this gem from anyone who is able to make the trip.

But that did not happen. we wanted to snorkel, read, swim and generally relax. The condo was right on the beach. But the beach access was a little disappointing as we could not access from the lanai. Great beach. great spot. adequete condo. Nice and modern. Did not like the window shutters. Too dark when closed. ( which is why the lights get left on i suspect) And when closed at night did not shut out the noise. Lapping waves is not how I would describe our experience. The noise was deafening. But we did get used to it after the first two nights. Unlucky for us the weather did not co operate one little bit. Just sheer bad luck. We had incredilby high surf, high winds, and very cool weather. we were there for 6 days. Most days it rained. we had been warned that this end of the island has less sun but were not prepared for what we got. Had the weather been good we may have had a different experience. But we had to leave the area and go to Kihei most every day to catch some sun. Unable to enjoy the area due to bad weather. But no one can control the weather so just plain bad luck i suppose. Surf so high dangerous to even attempt to swim. Snorkelling out of the question. So unfortuately it did not work out too well for us. Also a bit too secluded and not much in the way of places to eat. The condo was great. Nice and clean and very well equiped. We thought too many notes and rules and regulations about switching lights off and cleaning the shower stall. after every use!!!. they have sand issues in the condo. And its on the beach!! I did not feel like a paying guest. More like a non paying aquanitance owners appear paranoid about thier granite counter tops. I have granite in my own home so not sure what that was about. Perfect for two adults. Dont bring your kids unless you want to clean all the time. We wont be back. Sorry!

We chose to stay at Napili Bay because of the fabulous location. I chose unit 108 because the decor looked the happiest and more updated then some of the other units. The website was an exact representation. I'm an interior designer so my surroundings count! However, I do appreciate the "campyness" of Hawaiian Decor. This room was a bit "campy" It had a cute hula lamp etc. The unit did have a nice tiny,little kitchenette. But be careful,you can hear everything your neighbors are doing & saying clearly. This unit is compact & not having air conditioning was challenging. Blow drying my hair was not a pleasant experience!!! When we made reservations we requested a "towel trade" mid week because we didn't want to do laundry during a vacation, we were charged extra for this service. We were here for 10 days and then moved to a Hotel for our last week. My husband and I were both happy that we booked a luxury hotel for our last week on Maui. I guess when we are on a tropical escape we do prefer more amenities,services and pampering.
