Perfect beach front condo for a couple
Reviewed by Kylee W
My husband and I were looking for a condo in Maui (and specifically in the Napili Bay area) that was as close to the beach as possible but wouldn't cost us a fortune. I feel like we struck gold with this condo! We had a beach front unit on the second floor so the view couldn't be any better and the condo came stocked with beach chairs, towels, boogie boards and every appliance or dish you could need in the kitchen. There is a king bed that was quite comfortable and still plenty of room to sit or store luggage without feeling crowded. The price changes according to the time of year you travel but I can assure you this is one of the most affordable places I saw in Hawaii that was directly on the beach. I would absolutely recommend this condo to family and friends. One thing to note that some do not find appealing would be no air conditioning. From what I understand most condos in that area do not have AC anyway. The intention is to leave the slats on the windows and doors open with the ceiling fans on to keep the breeze going through. At night we were fine. The hottest time of the day felt pretty stuffy but you should be on the beach anyway!
Ideal location, amazing view, great little condo!

Highly recommend this condo! Great spot on Napili Bay with views of the beach, the bay, and amazing sunsets behind Molokai in the distance. Fell asleep to the sound of the waves every night. Loved sitting out on the lanai for breakfast in the morning and with a couple glasses of wine in the evening. Only minor complaint is that the condos here have solid railings on the lanai which impedes the view a bit when you're sitting. It does give you more privacy though. With the fan and the windows there's enough of a breeze to cool the room down at night. It might feel crowded with more than 2-3 people, but it was perfect for my wife and I. The room was very clean and there was a nice "welcome" bag of goodies when we arrived. Key was in a lockbox on the door and we got an email prior to the trip with comprehensive instructions. The kitchen was well stocked with basic appliances, dishes, and utensils. There were beach chairs, boogie boards, and an ice chest that got lots of use. Get some snorkel gear (recommend going to The Snorkel Store for rentals) and you're set! Great spot for snorkeling - not much coral, but fairly shallow and calm with lots of fish, turtles, and even a pod of dolphins one morning. The buildings are a bit old, but don't look run down. There's shared laundry and a BBQ area. Plenty of parking. There's not gardens or yard games or a pool like at some neighboring properties, but with the beach so close we didn't miss them. You can walk to The Seahouse and The Gazebo restaurants. There's a small shopping center a few minutes away with a market. There's also a bus stop right around the corner at Napili Surf with access to Kaanapali and Lahaina.

This was our first stay in Hawaii. We chose Maui because of the weather and the opportunity to stay right on the beach. We couldn't have been more pleased! Chuck and the condo were so great. We had a welcome bag when we arrived, which was a wonderful and personal touch. Those things mean a lot to me! The condo was dream like! It was perfect for two people and had everything we needed. The bed was comfortable and the location was insane! You have to stay here because it's literally right on the water! We couldn't believe our eyes when we walked in. It was so close to the ocean! You could smell the sea and hear the waves! The first night I couldn't sleep because of the crashing wave sounds... and I was so excited to be that close to the beach!! It was am amazing location, we walked up the small road to a coffee shop every morning. The people that were staying there were all very nice and we had a great time walking 5 steps down to the beach everyday. Oh, and the sand... um ya. Its like silk! I am so excited to write this review because this was our first time to Hawaii and it was everything we imagined it to be! Paradise!!! The condo was clean and updated with things that we had at home, like a nice TV and cable, not that we used it! The bay next to our condo was perfect. The water was crystal clear and warm. There was always room to lay out our towels right below our lanai. It was a picture perfect vacation and we can't wait to go back! We rented condo 208 and it was perfect because it was one from the end but you could see the entire bay from the lanai. The sunsets were incredible! We will be back. Thanks Chuck with aloha Condos for a perfect time in Hawaii!!!

We do remember the outdoor table and chairs being higher previously, not so easy to view, lest you raise your seat with pillows, but no worries, we spent most of our time on the beach and in the water anyway.

Our stay in Condo 208 at the Napili Bay Resort could not have been better. This is a resort that has been there for years, but has been renovated and kept up so that it is still one of the formost places on a beach that is difficult to surpass. From the time we walked in and was greeted by a welcome basket, we had a wonderful time. The attention to detail by Chuck was incredible. He emailed us several times making sure that we had everything we needed. We had to contact the resident manager once because of a leak that developed under the kitchen sink and he responded right away and took care of the problem. The condo had everything that was needed to make a stay at the beach a delight. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

#208 has everything and more you could possibly want/need! A thoughtful welcome basket with lots of goodies greets you. The condo is clean, has a very comfortable bed, plenty of kitchen needs, homey...The view from the lanai is breathtaking, the beach is right there with access a few steps away. We especially liked all the lighting, with dimmers, in the condo. We appreciated the quiet and friendliness of everyone we met. The grill area is wonderful for cooking and a great spot for socializing. The beach is beautiful for relaxing, swimming, snorkeling (lots of turtles!) and watching unbelievable sunsets. The resident manager and his wife are friendly and helpful and are available to answer questions or offer suggestions. We chose Napili Bay Resort #208 to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary - couldn't have made a better decision. The thing we liked least? Leaving!

Pros: Clean, nice sturdy chairs that can lean back that we took out daily, 2 boogie boards, 2 ceiling fans that helped make up for no aC, an easy walk by beach or road to the wonderful Sea House restaurant, washer/dryer room near parking lot, ice machine, beautiful landscaping with flowers, and a very friendly atmosphere. An easy walk to Merriman's or even the Pineapple Grill (at golf course). Cons: The room overlooks a very popular beach. There are over 100 people outside of room daily. Voices, esp. children's, carry into the room. To "escape" this noise it is good to shut the beach-side slats and turn on an internet music selection. Note to management: for those who stay more than a week it would be good to have more dish soap for hand-washing of dishes, and more t.p.

Napili is our favorite beach in Hawaii. This condo is as close as you get to the water. You can go to the beach without leaving the lanai. We loved our stay. Small but cozy and this condo has everything you need. If your looking for maid service, air conditioning, a swimming pool and total peace and quiet it isn't for you, but if you like to go to the beach without the hassle of driving, and if you enjoy people watching and sitting on the lanai at the best beach in Hawaii, this is the perfect location and condo for you. The swimming is fabulous as are the huge turtles. There are several restaurants nearby, a handy store and as one guide says, Napili has more enjoyment per sq. foot than any beach in Hawaii. We will be back!

This was our third trip to Maui and the second of what we hope will be many weeks in #208. The ocean is so close that we could see and hear it from the condo, and it takes less than a minute to get from there into the water. What could be better than that?! The condo is so well equipped that packing is so much easier than previous experiences, and great restaurants, a store, and Snorkel Bob's are within easy walking distance. The only disappointment was having to leave. This is a great place to vacation!

Condo 208 was perfect for the two of us. It's on the second floor and sits directly above the beach. We spent a lot of time on the small outside patio gazing at Molokai, the beach and the ocean, and slipping in a few pages from our books. The interior of the unit has clean, comfortable furniture and a good kitchen area for fixing full meals (but don't invite 28 folks over for Thanksgiving dinner). The unit included two great beach chairs and two boogie boards that we made use of daily. It's neat, clean and restful. We'd love to be back there again.

This was our second time staying at the Napili Bay Resort and it was just as wonderful as the first. We stayed in a 2nd floor unit this time and think we prefer it to the 1st floor from our first visit. The king bed in Unit #208 was very comfortable and everything was well stocked. We had purchased a disposable ice chest prior to arriving at the resort, but even that was provided! The beach chairs they provided with the room were brand new and very comfortable for spending the day on the beach. The welcome basket is always such a nice touch. The only thing I could think could be added to the unit is placemats. We were awoken on our first night from a group of singles loud voices and carrying on in the lanai in the unit next to us, but someone must have reported it the next day because we didn't hear anything the remainder of the nights we were there.

No major complaints, everything was well spelled out and organized. The condo had all the basic necessities, and was clean and comfortable It is a studio so it can start to feel a little confined after a few days but a comfortable lanai with a great view made up for any minor shortcomings. One caveat....it is right on the beach and I was originally concerned about people noise but that was never a problem but at night the sound of the surf seems really loud. We did come to the ocean on purpose after all and I felt relaxed by it but my wife didn't.

Thank you On our last day when Cathy the local rep contacted us and found out that we had a late flight back to Washington DC she gave us a late check out.

My partner and i were lucky enough to spend two nights in condo 208; we left wishing we could have stayed for a month! The place was immaculate, with everything provided to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable, right down to a welcome basket of tropical fruit. The location was fantastic, with our lanai looking out over the beach - we watched magical sunsets from the comfort of our deck chairs but, being on the second floor, had some privacy from other beach users. At night we were lulled to sleep (in a wonderful king-size bed) by the sound of waves. We chose to go out rather than cook, but the kitchen was well stocked enough to allow simple cooking. The reservation / confirmation process was easy and efficient, and the instructions (from a guy named Chuck) on accessing the condo were both clear and easy to follow. Furthermore, the Aloha rentals prices were competitive compared to units managed by others. In short, I highly recommend Napili Bay (though part of me would like to keep it a secret!) My partner and I would definitely stay there again.

I researched the internet for days to find a place on the beach, with a balcony looking out at the ocean, where we could listen to the surf at night, and snorkel and swim during the day. The snokeling isn't like the Caribbean, but there were some huge turtles and colorful fish, as well as some coral. We really loved our stay. It was quaint, comfortable, and gave us an escape from the maddening crowd. Napili Bay is magical. I woke one morning, stepped out on the lanai, and saw four rainbows across the bay. The sand was soft and clean. We were comfortable with the breeze that blew through the place, and only needed the ceiling fans to keep us comfortable. You can hear the neighbors a bit on the lanai, but we weren't bothered. I have to say, Kathy, who manages the property, was so amazing and available to be helpful and make our stay comfortable. We had a really great time and would happily go back. The condo is well stocked for cooking. Boogie boards and beach chairs were provided, as well as beach towels. The bathrooms are small but adequate. You really have everything you need. My only negative comment is that I found the colors a little dingy and would like to see a more cheery tone in the decoration. Kathy helped me to get a more colorful spread on the bed, which made a difference. We would recommend this to anyone looking to get close to the ocean (the beach is only steps away) and away from the big hotel tourist experience. It is a short drive to all of that if you want it. We arrived late at night, and it was easy to find our way and get into the condo. It was all set up very nicely. We stayed 9 days and had a great experience.

We loved the balmy breezes and did not mind not having air conditioning at all. The beautiful ocean sounds lulled us to sleep and we were absolutely stunned by the views. The owner of room 208 greeted us with a beautiful fruit basket with a gift beach bag. This was especially nice since we had forgotten to bring one! We met the owner of room 206, (paradisehawaiiancondos.com) and she was personable and even though we were not her customers, she would have gladly helped us if we had needed something. We asked to see her rental unit and if there was anything to say that is a little less glowing it would be that 207 and 208 have not had the bathrooms updated and therefore are not as nice as room 206. We will definitely go again to the Napili Beach Resort but because of the bathrooms we will probably will see if 206 is available first. If not, the others are great too! Oh, for those of you worried about bugs...it's the tropics! Clean up after you eat and keep your garbage in a bag in the freezer like we did. That is all it took for us to keep bugs away.

The rental itself was fine - clean, great view of the ocean. Disappointment was in two areas that might not bother other people - just me personally. On my 3rd day renters moved in next door who were chain-smokers. The smoke constantly drifted into my condo and lanai and the man had a smoker's cough that was non-stop. I was not able to enjoy the Lanai due to the constant smell of smoke and closing windows/doors in Hawaii makes little sense - I fault myself for not checking beforehand whether it was a "smoke free" condo complex. Perhaps that has changed since I visited. I also was not prepared for the large crowds (and noise) that gathered from morning until late afternoon right beneath my Lanai - I prefer a more secluded atmosphere. Again, this is of no fault to the condo itself - just my personal preference. I wanted to enjoy reading on the Lanai and looking at the ocean but between the smoke and the noise/activity below lanai, this was disappointing to me. I want to reiterate that the condo itself was lovely and well-equipped - just not the "spot" I had hoped for. No fault of owner or condo itself. Thank you for this oppportunity and I would recommend the condo to anyone who doesn't have my personal issues.

If your trying to get away from the big crowds, and overpriced luxury accommodations, this would be the place. During our stay in Hawaii, we stayed at both a luxury hotel and the relaxed, laid back, private beach, of Napili Bay Resort. It was awesome to walk out the front door to the beach. The snorkeling at Napili Bay was much better than the paid excursion I took. I did have a little problem going to sleep with the ocean waves crashing all night. The windows are louvered with no glass, so the noise could not be stopped. A Tylenol PM took care of that.

We go back the Napile Bay Resort year after year and consider it our home away from home. We particularly like the upstairs beach front units such as 208 and 209. You can't beat being right on the beach! Chuck and the folks at Aloha Condos really take care of their guests.

Second story unit on the beautiful Napili Bay beach. Clean and well furnished. Just steps away from your private beach entry and shower. Mornings on the lanai afford views of sea turtles and whales in the channel. Evenings provide unobstructed views of the sunset. Nights are cloaked in the sound of surf on the beach. There is no air conditioning but there also is no glass in the wood-shuttered windows. The sea breezes at night blowing through the condo will cool you enough for sleep in the amazingly comfortable bed. There is a TV that is hard to hear with the sound of the surf echoing in the condo, but who cares? All the entertainment you could want is waiting on the beach sunbathing, in the water snorkeling, or sitting on the lanai mesmerized by the view. Incredibly romantic for two and my idea of paradise.

Having been to Maui several times, I insisted my wife and I stay in a more quiet section of the island, but not too far from Lahaina. We chose Napili Bay and searched for a nice condo with the idea of treating ourselves to an ocean view. I searched for weeks and had a few places bookmarked. I ended up choosing 208 at Napili Bay Resort because it looked perfect. After booking and emailing back and fourth a few times with the owner we were set to stay and had all of our information necessary. Upon arrival, we walked into a nice quiet, modest yet clean and beautiful room. It was very important to me that the room kind of embrace the beauty and aloha spirit of the islands. It most certainly did and after stepping foot onto our Lana'i it exceeded our expectations! Chuck (the owner) had left us a very nice basket of hawaiian goodies with a note congratulating us on our marriage. That thoughtfulness meant a lot to us and made us feel at home right away. The room had wireless internet which was a huge plus. It was a great way to post pictures of our trip as it unfolded to ensue jealousy from our friends and family(hehe). The boogie boards and beach chairs were a plus too! Wey cannot wait to go back to Maui and are looking forward to staying in the same exact room. It was absolutely perfect for our needs and our tastes. Hawaii is not about big hotels, crowded beaches and shopping...it is the most beautiful place on earth. Napili Bay and the Napili Bay Resort both allow you to enjoy the island in comfort and quiet without being too far from the tourist indulgences.

My husband and I stayed at your lovely condo for the majority of our honeymoon. We spent 6 wonderful nights there and then went to Oahu. And Maui is definately my favorite of the two islands! We loved the convience of the kitchen, frig, and being right on the beach. It was amazing to watch the sunrise and set everyday and just to sit and people watch as well. The ocean waves were calming... We felt very safe there. There were two great places to eat within walking distance--the Gazeebo and the Sea House. We could take a short car ride to Lahaina for other food and stores. It was great!!! We'd love to come again! Thanks again for the fabulous stay.

My husband and I absolutely loved our stay at the Napili Bay. The location of the unit and the views from the lanai were spectacular. While the room itself could use some updating, it was clean and had everything we needed. We plan to stay there again, soon!
