We enjoyed the ground-floor beachfront location. The sound of the waves gave a secluded feeling considering this is a very popular (crowded, at times) beach. The condo was clean and well equipped with updated appliances and fixtures. The deck was very enjoyable for people watching and views. Our only disappointment was that the unit was not air-conditioned.

A lovely ground floor studio condo in a two level building. Raised bed afforded amazing views of ocean, which is literally 20 feet from the lanai. A gorgeous welcome basket of Maui goodies on our arrival was well appreciated. Sound of the waves crashing on the beach took some getting used to at night, but soon became background ambiance. Well stocked kitchen ( including blender!). Five steps from front door to beach. This was an incredible find, and we will stay again!

Although we would have suggestions to the owners when they update the unit, we found our little vacation spot well equipped and ideally situated. This was our first visit to Napili Bay Resort - we always stay next door - and we were so impressed by the property. It was quiet and well maintained, with plenty of parking. The unit itself boasts loads of storage, and we loved learning to use the convection microwave, which baked anything from pizza to cookies with perfection. The only immediate suggestion we offer to the owners would be a simple welcome/instruction sheet tucked in with the gorgeous "Welcome" basket (where to find trash bins, what can be recycled, "quiet hours", theres an ice maker and lending library by the laundry area!) would have been appreciated. Also, for rainy days a few classic games - scrabble, cards - would be a thoughtful addition. Overall, we enjoyed a terrific value, had a wonderful vacation and would feel fortunate to have the opportunity to visit again. We recommend this unit wholeheartedly.

amazing location, awesome snorkeling and swimming, great amenities in the condo. most relaxing vacation ever. the pics are right on, you walk down the stairs, around a corner and you on the beach! only negatives: there was no a/c which made it too hot to get a good night's rest, condo could use updating-interior is outdated, not enough toilet tissue provided. this is not really a downside, but just a heads up that because you are amazingly close to the beach and there are no real windows (screens with wood louvers) there is no real insulation from sound i.e. waves crashing at night literally sound like a tsunami is outside your lanai).

We loved the Napili Bay Resort Condo 109. The location is amazing, right on the beach with an amazing view of the ocean. The Condo was very quiet and the sound of the sea at night was the perfect way to drop off to sleep. The Condo was very well equipped with everything that we required and it was lovely to receive a welcoming basket on arrival. The kitchen was well stocked so it was easy to self cater and the bed and couch were very comfortable. The beach outside the Condo is great for swimming (as well as snorkelling and swimming with Turtles!) and there are very good restaurants in walking and close driving distance. We would definitely stay at Condo 109 again, it was bliss!

Cozy Unit 109 suited us perfectly with its easy access to Napili Bay. Although small, it's designed well to accomodate a leisurely vacation lifestyle. (The multiple clothes hooks were great!) It's well-equipped for cooking indoors and out, with a great BBQ area. We enjoyed the location and walking to several of our favorite restaurants and our friends' home by the general store. After staying at another resort in Napili for years and not being pleased the last 2 times, this year we decided to try somewhere different on the bay. We were so happy with The Napili Bay that we're already looking forward to staying there next year for our annual trip to Maui. Aloha!

My husband and I couldn't have chosen a better place to experience Maui! We toured all over the island and saw amazingly beautiful sights, but our favorite spot, when we weren't on the beach itself, was right on our lanai balcony! Breathtaking sunsets, whales breaching and blowing all around us, mesmerizing views of the surf, the everchanging scenery of Molokai,and rainbows almost daily - this was all ours to enjoy at Napili Bsy Resort condo 109. It was perfect! Everything, from the basket of goodies from the owners, to the cozy, very clean, airy island-feel decor, made us feel relaxed and comfortable. We especially liked the beach equipment - beach chairs, umbrella, towels, body boards - we were all set! And the kitchen had everything we needed to fix whatever meals we wanted. We loved waking up in the morning to the sound of the surf and the view of the bay - right from our bed. The only negative were some tiny beach ants, but they didn't seem to bother with us. Chuck with aloha Condos gave us great service via his instructions and directions. A pleasure to deal with! Other people staying at the resort were friendly and easy to have as "neighbors." The Resort is nestled in Napili Bay, along with a few other low-rise condos, so there is a nice island feel. Also, the Resort is conveniently located near the Gazebo Restaurant - fabulous breakfast! - and near the Sea House Restaurtant - wonderful ambiance & delicious seafood! Both can be accessed by a short walk on the beach. Wonderful! Also, Napili Market and a few other restaurants are just a quick drive away. Very convenient! We hope to return to Napili Bay Resort Condo 109 again... soon! Absolutely perfect!

This was my first visit to Hawaii, and I split time between Napili and South Maui. The Napili area is a great mix of low impact condos along the Bay. Condo 109 is exactly as pictured on the website, well maintained, clean and bright. What can't be captured in photos are the panoramic vistas that you will enjoy from the lanai, the contented feeling of being in paradise when you step out to the beach, and the sound of waves lulling you to sleep each night. I really can't believe that someone would travel to Hawaii and then complain about the sound of the ocean? The condo is complete with Cd's with Hawaiian music to help put you in the mood, as if you needed anything more than to step out onto the lanai for a breakfast of fresh fruit - or to walk along the beach to the Gazeebo restaurant for the banana pancakes and fried rice for breakfast. Yes, fried rice made with an assortment of meats, including bacon. The weather was wonderful when I was there (middle of May). The condo has everything you could need, including cooking utensils and beach gear. Mine was a short stay, so I didn't bother to cook. The beach and bay were used by snorkelers, paddle boarders, and people generally walking in the surf or lounging on the beach. It was quite laid back and relaxing. I would definitely return to the Napili Bay Resort, although the memories will last forever. The sunsets are mesmerizing, but the hypnotic sounds of the ocean are probably what will stick with me the longest. At this condo, you will hear those sounds all day (and night). Wonderful.

This is a small place but perfect for the two of us. The location right on the sand and on the corner was the best. It was a very quiet complex and Napili Bay is a perfect spot to enjoy Maui. The little market just a few minutes walk away was a nice surprise. The unit had everything we needed including chairs, towels, boogie boards and a sun umbrella. I would highly recommend it for a couple, but don't try to squeeze in your kids or grandkids. It would be a bit tight. Great value in my opinion!

We were really pleased with our time at Napili Bay Resort. It was easy to find, it couldn't be more close to the water, and from what we saw Napili Bay was by far one of the better beaches to be at. The only reason it got 4 stars instead of 5 is that the condo itself, while clean and tidy and complete with everything you need, was in need of a bit of updating. We probably wouldn't have noticed if friends hadn't rented another a few doors down which had been renovated more recently.

We recently stayed in condo 109 and it was absolutely perfect for us! The beach was literally steps from our door. We went to sleep by the sounds of the ocean... Our visit was in March, so we saw many whales breach in the distance right from our balcony. Everyday we saw turtles. The unit was exactly what we expected, a little outdated in terms of decor, but kept up very nicely and all around a great space for two people. The kitchen was a definite bonus, which had everything we'd need to be comfortable. There were a few ants here and there, but being on an island, that goes hand in hand. The beach amenities were fantastic and were used often. We did not have items like shampoo in the unit, but it was not a big deal as the Napili Market was right around the corner. Location wise - very convenient and easy to venture around. There's a great General Store just around the bend (easy walking distance) that has great organic fruits and vegetables daily. The Gazebo is next door (to the condos) and has the best breakfast. There is nice variety of places to eat within a few minutes of the condo, Maui Brewing Co is about 5 mins away and has great beer/food and if looking for more of a variety to choose from - Lahaina is just a few minutes away. Overall, we had the best time! Chuck and his team were a pleasure to communicate with. We will highly recommend!

This was our 5th stay at Napili Bay Resort condo #109. The unit is exceptionally clean, comfortable and directly on the family-friendly beach. When we aren't on the beach, we "lanai surf" - sit on the lanai and watch the ocean, whales, turtles and palms. The unit is on the first level - only a few steps down to the beach through a locked gate entrance providing security for condo residents. The resort provides a separate laundry area and grills a few steps away. The landscaping and maintenance of the condos are immaculate, provided by a wonderful onsite caretaker. This is our escape to paradise.

Our daughter and her family were staying at the Ritz Carlton but when they came to visit and looked out the lanai, they were blown away: "You're right there!" as the waves lapped on the sand just feet away. The grand kids, 8 and 4, loved the beach and came every day. So much for the Ritz!

For value, location, and overall quality, we couldn't have asked for more. Watching the sunsets from the patio, being 10 feet from the surf, being on a very quiet crescent beach with a great restaurant (Sea House) at one end, that we could stroll to at night to enjoy dinner or mai tais, it was the best vacation in Hawaii we've had, hands down. Will come back here again. I would recommend this room (109) as well as any of the other 10X and 20X rooms (110 would also be nice).

Much nicer than I expected. Can't beat the view. Looks a little run down on the outside, but is very nicely decorated on the inside. We loved the bed and being able to hear the ocean at night.

I thought $60-$75 would have been more appropriate.

Napili Bay Resort is superbly located along the beach at Napili Bay, just steps from the water's edge.

Unit 109 was perfect for us. We loved the way the outside deck had been raised up a bit so we could see over the rail while we sat outside to eat our dinner.

We stayed for the first part of our visit on the second floor, in a room we loved, then moved to 109 due to booking availability. The biggest problem we had with the room was that the bed was incredibly uncomfortable, very hard with springs digging into our backs. We contacted the property manager and condo association president. We let them know of the issue and asked what could be done to help the situation. We offered several solutions, such as an air mattress, changing rooms to a garden view (109 is an ocean view room)and asked to be able to contact the owners. When I was making the arrangements, I was under the impression I had been speaking with the condo owner, but when the problem arose, we discovered he was simply a property manager and very rude to us. Other issues were the screens are not the correct size so the edges gap and allows bugs into the room, the shower seems to be connected to the outside hose/shower/foot rinse area as the shower did not maintain proper temp, ranging from very hot to very cold within seconds, exposed wires, no batteries in the smoke detector, cabinets and drawers falling off hinges. Very poorly maintained room. Not a very private location either. We loved the other room we stayed in, room 207. When the issue was not resolved, we left the next day after moving in and stayed next door at the Napili Surf, which is a wonderful location with the best, most friedly staff we have ever met.
We do acknowledge that the queen bed in the condo has a firm mattress and box spring. We personally tend to prefer a firm mattress; however our current plans include the purchase of a new king size bed with pillow top that will likely be preferred by a greater number of guests. Our most recent purchase was the new sectional sofa and I hope you found it to your liking. We do routinely upgrade the furnishings in the unit.
The louvered windows on the beachfront are original to the building construction. The screens have been replaced and are held in place with small metal retainers. If a retaining clip was loose, the screen could have been pulled away from the frame and only needed to be clipped back in place. Our recent inspection of the windows did not reveal any improperly sized screens.
The beachfront shower and the large ceramic tiled glass-enclosed corner shower unit in the condo have entirely separate water supplies. The very large capacity hot water supply line for the individual units has a return loop to the water heaters, so that hot water is always available within a very few seconds after turning on the valve. A faulty shower mixing valve could conceivably cause the problem you describe. The valve has been checked and found to be working properly.
No exposed wiring was found, unless your reference is to some of the low voltage lighting in the upper part of the display cabinetry. A loose and improperly fastened drawer front on the bathroom vanity base has been fully repaired.
A missing smoke alarm battery is inexcusable under any circumstances. A new battery has been installed and the alarm is now in working order. As Napili Bay owners we are very concerned about fire safety and we do not allow smoking or candles inside of our condo. The entire property is currently being retrofitted with an automatic fire sprinkler system that is above and beyond code requirement for this property.

And it was a great plus to be in a corner unit like this one for added privacy. My husband and I took it easy and had a great relaxing time enjoying the breeze, beach, sun and nearby restaurants for breakfast, lunch, dinner all within walking distance from the condo.

We really enjoyed our stay and spent a lot of time on the beach without doing much at all. It was so easy to go to and from the beach right outside the room/balcony. Our stay was very relaxing and you can't beat this place for this very reasonable price. The only tip I would give is that you might consider getting the 2nd floor rooms instead of the first floor. We got some rather loud folks above us and the floors don't hide normal walking noises at all. But it drives you outside to the beach, which isn't bad at all. Recommended to stay here.
