Napili Bay Resort 218, Lahaina Maui
A private corner condo on the top floor with only one other condo adjacent to it. The bottom unit is the resident's manager office which is very considerate to guests. The lanai is very private and especially on high-surf days, less effected by noise... more from the beach both from the waves and beach goers in the morning. less ↑

This condo was in the perfect location! it was settled in the back of complex so it didn’t have the noise of people on the beach. Had everything you needed for cooking. One thing it doesn’t have is a dresser to put your clothes in... more during your stay. also, hair dryer was broken so bring your own:) Otherwise, it was a great stay! less
— Melanie, Stayed 08/01/2021
Thank you Melanie for your feedback and glad that you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for letting us know about the hair drier, we will be replacing that soon. As for the dresser, we do have a built-in closet but understand may not be enough for some. For a studio, it’s a balance between providing enough convenience and not making the space look too crowed, something we can re-evaluate in the future. Aloha.
2nd stay here in 6 Months
Excellent Stay. Love this unit and location. The owner is very accommodating. Looking forward to staying here again. Thanks Claudio!!
— Michael, Stayed 06/20/2021
Terrific place to relax
The condo was very clean, the pictures were as described. The sounds of the breeze and the waves helped us sleep. The condo was comfortable and close to the beach so we did not have to walk far each day.
— Barry, Stayed 05/01/2021
Cozy, quite condo
Such a cute cozy condo! Perfect location, owners are extremely kind and accommodating. I would highly recommend staying here and would absolutely stay again!
— Julia, Stayed 04/19/2021
This unit is aware from the fanfare of the water, but nestled in the back with a stellar ocean view from the patio. I enjoyed doing my work from the balcony patio and watching the waves crash on the beach. Plus sheltered from the occasional... more rain, listening to the sounds of rain against the large foliage was delightful. Nice seclusion with beach immediate access. A Gem. less
— A&N, Stayed 03/16/2021
Greatly equipped condo with everything one needs in the kitchen and all required equipment to enjoy the beach! A wonderful surprise with a gift basket on arrival was very much appreciated. the hosts are absolutely great with communication while also polite to leave us to... more enjoy their wonderful home in paradise. everything was clean and highly recommend this property to those seeking a wonderful get away in Maui. If, and when i return to Maui, i will definitely check on the availability of condo 218! less
— Richard Barker, Stayed 01/24/2021
Number 218 has everything you need for the beach, cooking, and a comfortable stay. I would recommend the couch be replaced as it is very worn out.
— Dean, Stayed 01/05/2021
Aloha, We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your feedback and will be looking at replacing the sofa in our next opportunity. Mahalo Claudio and Annie
Perfect for a small family or couple. Steps from the beach and Comfy bed. Owner was extremely easy to work with and very helpful. Will definitely stay here again!

Amazing spot in paradise! Felt safe during the pandemic
Napili Bay Resort exceeded all of our expectations! Condo 218 is a clean and well-organized studio at a beautiful and practical location. My partner and I stayed in the condo for a week in October, right after Hawaii re-opened for visitors. We were a bit... more skeptical before arriving to the island because of the current situation, but staying at this condo made us feel safe, and we were able to enjoy a relaxing vacation in paradise. Claudio, the condo's landlord, was extremely nice and accommodating. He helped us have a smooth stay and he quickly answered any questions we had. Upon arrival, our check-in was contactless, and the condo was super clean and tidy, which made us feel safe in regards to COVID-19. The beautiful condo is located right on the beach, and we even got ocean view from our lovely balcony! While the condo is small, it felt spacious and was equipped with everything we needed for an amazing vacation - beach towels, beach chairs, umbrella, fully stocked kitchen, etc. The location was gorgeous and we were able to easily get around for groceries (Napili Market is great) and to beautiful beaches. This condo allowed us to have a fun and relaxing vacation in paradise :) I highly recommend this condo for couples (the max occupancy is two people). We hope to return soon! less

Another great stay at Napili Bay
We are pleased to write another rave review for our stay at 218 Napili Bay! It was such a nice surprise to see the gift basket filled with fresh fruit, coffee, and chocolates! As always the unit was clean and well equipped and organized. The... more updated lighting and 5G WIFI was super! If you want a convenient location to the beach and a clean, beautiful place to stay you can't wrong with 218!! less

Napili Splendidly Special
Aloha from our Napili Bay home away from home, which was splendid again this season and we’re already booked again for next year. The recent renovations made a significant improvement To our enjoyment of the unit that were greatly appreciated. The location of the unit... more is ideal for us, offering a little more privacy than others but still with very convenient access to the beach. The grounds and the communal facilities are well maintained but the beach and the water are the most special, including some of the best snorkeling we’ve ever experienced in the nearby Honolua Bay. We can’t wait for next year already. Mahalo, Claudio & Annie less

Best value for money in Napili Bay
Our 7th visit to Napili since 2008 and 3rd to #128 at Napili Bay Resort. This unit is the best value we have found and we have checked out them all.
— David, Stayed 11/29/2019
Beautiful condo in paradise
I truly loved my stay at this condo, the view and access of the beach, and the location in Napili-it’s a little slice of paradise. The little touches by the owners like the welcome bag of chocolates, chips, coffee, water etc was the icing on... more the cake. Condo had everything I needed and more-including beach chairs, snorkel gear, body boards, and was clean, tidy and well stocked with crockery, cutlery, glassware, and cooking and cleaning supplies. Communication with the owners was excellent, and I won’t hesitate to book again on a return trip (I did actually extend my trip whilst I was there!). Mahalo! less
— Suzanne, Stayed 07/20/2019
Much better view than you can capture on pictures of the ocean and the mountains. Had everything we needed, which was helpful. Certainly would enjoy staying again. Third time to this complex and the simple but practical amenities make for a perfect stay.
— Dean, Stayed 05/31/2019
Wow! What a wonderful stay we had at this thoughtfully appointed studio. You could tell that there had been a recent renovation and that the owners took great pride in their unit. We opted to save some money by not booking something 'ocean front' but... more we absolutely loved the ocean view from the lania and the tropica feel of the plants off the deck. Morning walks, sunset views and great adventures were all at our doorstep. Plenty of parking, geer for the beach, community BBQ. We will be back. less
— Kathleen, Stayed 04/12/2019
A Great Place
This was our second trip to the resort. We absolutely love it! We enjoy the beach and the condo for relaxing and resting. Claudio and Anne are so easy to work with on reserving time in their great condo. The unit is clean and fully... more supplied. The bed is comfortable. Thanks, Claudio and Annie for making our stay wonderful! less
— Deborah, Stayed 07/05/2018
Great Location and a beautiful place
We spent 7 days in Napili Bay. It was very pleasant and quite. The room was very comfortable and the kitchen well supplied. I just have but good reviews about the condos. It is a place that you want to visit again and again and... more again. Thanks Francisco less
— Francisco, Stayed 03/22/2018
Maui Beach Paradise
Our stay was absolutely fabulous. The Napili Bay Resort is a small scale (36 units), low (2 storey), old style Hawaiian character condominium development including 2 buildings with a common outdoor BBQ area and well cared for gardens. Each unit is a studio with a... more kitchenette, bathroom and combination living/bedroom ideal for 2 people. These buildings were constructed in the 1970's and each of the owners have undertaken various upgrades and updates. The kitchenette in unit 218 is very good but the stove is a bit old. The bathroom area is a bit dated but the shower works fine. The bed is a bit soft and the couch is a bit tired but the living/bedroom is furnished with nice old-style wicker. As a corner unit, the lania has the benefit of nice breezes and tall chairs, which afford lovely views of both the garden and ocean. However, the best aspect of this unit is the price. The few flaws with this unit are more than compensated by the reasonable rate and if I had my choice I would prefer the rate to remain the same rather than have the unit upgraded resulting in a rate increase. We enjoyed our stay tremendously and are booked again for next year. Thank you Claudio and Annie. less
— Brian, Stayed 02/07/2018
Location & Price
218 at The Napili Bay is private, quiet, very cost effective and ideally located just steps from the water. That says it all.
— donald, Stayed 12/14/2017
3rd stay, always great
Our third time in 218. Always enjoy the coziness, privacy and value of Claudio's place. In addition, his responsiveness to any questions and his service are exceptional. We will be back. Thanks again.
— Sandy and Dave, Stayed 08/08/2017
Our Two Weeks in Napili Bay
We enjoyed our stay overall. We had everything we needed including help from the onsite manager on how to work the TV. Possible improvements to the unit could be as follows: 1) A fitted bottom bed sheet with elastic on the corners would make for... more a more comfortable sleep and easier bedmaking in the a.m. 2) Fitted shelves in bathroom cabinet would provide more space for toiletries. 3) Insufficient draw space for the smaller clothing items, underwear, tops, shorts etc. 4) Dining room table and chairs could be better. Those provided would be for patio use in the U.K. 5) Lanai chairs too high for older people. Also too high for height of table such that it was difficult to seat easily for dining, i.e breakfast in the mornings. Otherwise excellent location and friendly neighbours. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Really appreciated the use of comfortable beach chairs. less

218 napili bay resort
It was the perfect location for us, access to a beautiful beach, close to restaurants and stores. Coastal walk was great, did that every morning. Home away from home, fully contained condo. Nice decor, comfortable bed. Beach chairs and boards. The only thing missing was... more a dresser to put our clothes in. Otherwise, perfect! Thank you so much. Blakes less
— Loren, Stayed 05/16/2017
Ideal location at a great price!
This cozy studio condo was exactly what we needed. We were a stones through from the beach, and yet because of the unique location of this condo, we had very little "human" noise even in the middle of the day when there were more people... more enjoying the beach, and enjoyed the privacy that only an upstairs corner unit can provide. We had little use for our rental car, (except for excursions) as we were walking distance from the grocery store, dive/surf shop, coffee shop, and restaurants. The condo was equipped with everything that we needed for our one week stay, including boogie boards, beach chairs and towels and some snorkeling gear. If you haven't stayed on Napili Bay, you are missing out! It is a perfect place for swimming, snorkeling and body surfing, and the sea turtles were swimming around right off shore on a regular basis. I highly recommend this delightful condo. less

Napili Bay Condo 218
We enjoyed our stay at Napili Bay. We loved the access to the beautiful beach and spent the mornings and evenings there. The condo was well outfitted and had everything we needed for our stay there. Mahalo!
— Emily, Stayed 03/21/2017
thanks - i love your condo
This was my second visit to Napili Bay condos- I stayed in 110 last year. I love the resort, access the beach and quiet atmosphere. I enjoyed your corner unit very much because of the trees and airy decor. The unit is sunny and bright... more and when sitting in the room you feel as if you are in a tree house. I enjoyed breakfast on your lanai and slept well listening to the waves and trees. I was visiting my brother, who lives in Napili, and we enjoyed many walks in the gulch and on the beach. Thank you for providing awesome beach gear! I used the snorkel, chairs and boogie boards every day. I love your place and truly hope to return sooner than later. Sarah less

Little Peace of Paradise
I recently stayed in Condo 218 for 16 days and I have to say it was fantastic! it's very cozy and clean, towels , boogie boards , snorkel gear , beach chairs all supplied by the owners. Claudio is very friendly and gets back to... more you right away if you need anything . I extended my planned stay 6 days I didn't want to leave . I will be back for sure to this little gem on Napili bay ~ You'll love it!! less
— Lisa, Stayed 09/05/2016
Clean and simple
They had everything one would need. Very nice location with views of the ocean and the mountains. Will definitely stay again. The only complaint is the WiFi quality. It is DSL but I think they will upgrade. Mahalo for the great stay.
— Matthew, Stayed 05/01/2016
In March 2016, we stayed at NB218 for the ninth time. Like the previous eight stays, it was great. We look forward to our tenth visit.

Best access to a wonderful beach
The Napili Bay Resort condo 218 is a wonderful place to stay when you visit Maui. We have stayed there three times and love the convenience to the beach and to the places we like to visit. The owners are very friendly and will communicate... more with you if you have questions. We love staying at NBR because its small size and the fact that there is a laundry area, gas grills and picnic tables. The grounds are beautifully kept and the beach area is the best in Maui. less
— Linda and Tom, Stayed 03/13/2016
Good Value for Reasonably Priced Unit!
The unit was what we expected for the price. We received a nice welcome gift basket. We had everything we needed, including beach chairs, snorkel equipment and boogie boards. It was clean, but a bit dated. The unit lacked drawer space for 2 people for... more a 2 week stay. Perhaps changing out one of the smaller side tables or the table near the desk for a 3 or 4 drawer dresser would help. The location of the resort was excellent for access to Napili Bay, which is lovely, and parking was very good, too. As a general rule, it was quiet with the exception of several early mornings per week of trash and recycling pickup. Also, we had trouble connecting to the internet through the condo's network and had to use another unit's WIFI. Overall, we had a very pleasant, enjoyable stay there and would consider staying there again while in Maui. less
— Larry, Stayed 11/22/2015
Thank you for your feedback! I just wanted to provide an update that our wireless access has been upgraded and should provide a more reliable connectivity to the internet. We will also try to address the other issues from your comments in the near future. Mahalo.
Our Favorite Place on Maui
My daughter and I have been staying at Napili Bay for the last five years in 218. It is well equipped with everything we need. It is reasonably priced and just a few steps to the beach. It is close to all the beaches that... more we like to snorkel at. Napili Bay is one of our favorite places to stay when on Maui. less
— Sharon, Stayed 09/30/2015
A Lovely Stay On The Beach!
My husband and I stayed here for 6 days while we visited Maui on our honeymoon. It was an ideal location for us! When we arrived, a sign and a basket with treats welcomed us, which was a nice surprise. The location is great -... more right on beautiful Napili Bay beach - so we could walk out the condo and right out to the beach very easily. The owners also provided us with chairs, beach towels, and boogie boards (plus snorkel equipment that we didn't try out because we rented equipment). The bay is a great place to snorkel, swim, boogie board, or watch the sunset, which was probably my favorite part. The room was comfortable and clean, and the lanai was a lovely place to eat breakfast. The only thing I wished for was a ceiling fan that worked a little better, because it was pretty hot while we were there and the fan's top speed was pretty slow. But overall, a great place and an outstanding value. We would definitely come back! less
— Lynne, Stayed 09/02/2015
Mahalo Lynne for your comments and for taking the time to provide feedback. Regarding the fan, we are looking into the issue right now and will most likely replace the fan as it may have run its course. Aloha, Claudio.
The condo was clean, and had anything one would need for the beach and barbecue. Many of the louvers did not open and close. It was not really such a problem, except for the light shining in from the hallway across the yard, and not... more being able to have a cross breeze at night. The trade winds died down after the third day, so it was quite hot at night. I would recommend the condo. It would be perfect if it was air conditioned! The private beach was very nice, but very small. less
— Maryellen , Stayed 07/28/2015
Cozy little condo on the beach
Great place for any one who loves everything about a beach and do their own thing. It's just steps away and owner of this property has ensured that everything you need is right at hand from kitchen utilities, TV & wifi to board games,beach towels,boogie... more boards & snorkeling gear and for those lazy people who did not do their research before coming, a stock of books and guides to get to know Maui is available on table and in TV cabinet. This is not a resort so do not expect to have daily cleaning and room service but if you want all that then you pay more to hotel chains. You take care of this condo, cook, unwind, explore the local beaches, sights and generally have a good time. Also they have a nearby coin operated laundry in this community. It was a very pleasant stay and would recommend this. Tips: It can be a bit windy outside and accompanied with ocean it can get loud so be prepared to enjoy natural surround sound in all it's glory even at night or get some ear plugs if you prefer not to. Its not too crazy but beach gets relatively crowded after 11am all the way till near evening depending on weather. Access to it is using room key. Sunset is great on a clear day. Snorkeling conditions are best in mornings and sometimes in evening especially when the trade winds have not picked up. Boogie board, swim, snorkel, watch out for turtles, fishes but stay safe and keep a distance from marine life and do not disturb, litter or go crazy. There is no one to monitor and people can get carried away and unintentionally hurt themselves, others or an entire eco-system. Door knob for both patio and main door has a lock which when in lock position will not open unless you have the key. We managed to lock ourselves out in the patio without a key but luckily were able to get help. Night time driving can be difficult as roads between Kahului and Napili are not well lit most of the way so please take that into consideration if you are flying in late night. Also avoid highway 340 while coming here but drive it from here on a relaxing day to enjoy an adventurous and scenic route. There is a great breakfast/brunch place called Gazebo near by. It's full in morning with long waits but in afternoon it was easy to find a table. less

The Perfect Location for Island Relaxation.
This is our third visit to Napili Bay and first in Condo 218. We found it nicely appointed and its view of the water from the lanai was great for seeing whales and enjoying our morning coffee. Only steps to the sandy beach and excellent... more snorkeling with turtles and countless fish enhances the experience even more. less

Mother and Daughter Adventures Maui, 2014.
This is the fourth year that my daughter and I have stayed at Napali Bay Resort Condo 218. It is our little bungalow away from home and just the right size for us. It is close to everything we enjoy doing. It is a well... more kept condo with everything we need. Guests are treated well. There is a welcome basket waiting for you when you arrive, which is always enjoyed. We look forward to being able to enjoy staying here next year. less
— Sharon T, Stayed 09/24/2014
Liked the location the best. Great beach, snorkeling and water perfect. Condo well- equipped, but could use some updating--carpet in front of bathroom sink needs to be washable, dripping bathtub faucet, new louvre that works in front door, refrigerator seal needs replacing, because refrigerator drips... more water onto floor. Otherwise, we have always liked 218 and always return to it. less
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 05/09/2014
Mahalo for taking the time to provide feedback and I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Just wanted to let you know we are addressing your concerns and also looking into whether the refrigerator issues can be repaired or whether will need to be replaced. Aloha. Claudio, owner condo 218.
I have stayed at about every condo at Napili in the last 20 years. I give the Napili Bay Resort a 4 star rating. The condo was super clean and had all the basic appliances needed. I loved being off the water but still having... more a little view of it from the lanai. One of the great things about this unit is that you can softly hear the ocean and also the sway of the palm leaves outside. The resort is on the bay so you are only a few feet away from the beach. Lots of free parking which is a giant plus at Napili. Didn't get a five because no pool or recreational grounds (other than the ocean). Plan on staying at this unit again in the future. P.S. The owners were very prompt in the booking and easy to work with. less

Great view and the sounds of the ocean plus very close to the be
We were grateful to have the beach chairs and snorkeling gear! It was very clean and comfortable and met well our needs! Very reasonable rate! It was fun snorkeling with the turtles!

Good value excellent location best buy on Napili bay
Stayed in 218 11 days it is in the back building in the corner but there is an excellent ocean view from the lanai. There was a nice welcome basket which was full of treats from the island. This was our second time staying at... more Napili Bay they have similar condos right on the beach but they are $100 more a night. Condo was in good shape for an older unit clean with a nicely stocked kitchen. I guess the only two things that could of been better were that the internet connection was not reliable worked maybe half the time didn't need internet a lot but did need it some. Also the one ceiling fan is controlled with a dimmer switch and it will only go to medium speed. The chain is missing on the fan so you cannot turn it to high manually. Overall a very nice unit that well worth the money, Napili Bay is a very nice little complex with about 30 units they have a common BBQ area on a beautiful beach. Highly recommend this property! less
— Scott and Cyndie, Stayed 04/09/2014
This rental is comfortable for two people. The bed comfort was perfect! All of our basic needs were met. I loved the idea of the location of this unit and how quiet it is. The cooler, snorkel items and most importantly the beach chairs were... more an added bonus! less

Cozy, comfortable, clean, great value
We were in mauie for 15 days and stayed in Napili 218 for 5 of those days. Napili is such a special place and it was great to be so close to the beach. We were very impressed with the quality and cleanliness of the... more unit. It was well set up and had good beach amenities such as chairs, an unbrella and snorkel gear (although we bring our own snorkel gear). We found the unit very private and quiet. The lanai was great for meals. Good internet service. The owners were very responsive and helpful. Highly recommend this for couples. less

Condo 218 at Napili Bay Condominiums
My husband and I recently returned home from a Maui vacation which included four nights in room #218 at Napili Bay Condominiums. From the moment we entered the condo, we knew we had made a very good choice for a place to stay in this... more area. We had a wonderful, delicious, and fun-item filled gift basket awaiting us, providing a very sweet & welcoming touch! Out on the lanai, where we had a beautiful ocean view complete with many playful whales, there were all sorts of items to make our stay more comfortable, including snorkeling equipment, an umbrella, and great beach chairs. The condo itself was in great shape, airy and clean, with all the facilities necessary for snack and full meal preparation. The bed was extremely comfortable, and there was wi-fi for our convenience. We explored the area thoroughly, especially enjoying the snorkeling right at Napili Bay,and were very happy with our decision to stay in this area. We will definitely be back and felt that condo #218 was an incredible deal! Thanks so much for your efforts to ensure customer satisfaction, comfort,and happiness! less

Great to hear the ocean and birds and not cars
The condo was clean and had everything we needed.The flowers and attention to the landscaping was very nice. The beach chairs and beach towels were appreciated. The balcony had good chairs and a great view. The clock radio beeped in the middle of the night.... more It was great to walk to the beach. All the hotels were close to the beach and in the future hotels should be built back from the beach. I was shocked to see some people feed turtles lettuce. less

Great Place to Chill
Great location, lots of nice people in well maintained clean facility.
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 02/18/2013
The singing birds each and every morning at 6:15.am were a delightful way to wake up every day. The sound of the waves were just as wonderful. We will always remember that from our stay at this condo. Stunning location. Loved sitting on the lanai... more for breakfast and seeing a slice of the ocean. Nice updated kitchen and good kitchen amenities. Really appreciated use of the cooler & beach chairs. Easy parking. Easy access to beach! One recommendation would be to update the bathroom with a new tub, toilet and shower curtain or shower doors. The bathroom felt a little run down. The unit could also use an updated couch. Other than that, it was wonderful. less

Best value at Napili beach
This was our 3rd different condo in 3 years on Napili Bay and we found it best suited for economy and excellent facilities. ie. No unnecessary communal pool and accompaning noise, no invasive daily maid service. Just a perfectly quiet relaxing balcony apartment with a... more beach view just steps away and all the necessary beach equipment (portable canvas chairs, snorkelling equipment - flippers/masks/snorkels. A bargain! and our search is over. Already making plans to return in 2013. Add a monthly Maui Bus pass for $25/senior and any daily transport needs for shopping at Napili Plaza, Lahaina, Kaanapali or Whalers Village is less than 100 yards from your door. less

Fabulous condo for our 30th wedding anniversary!
We so enjoyed this clean and airy condo just steps away from Napili Bay! The lanai had a fabulous view of the ocean and the kitchen was wonderfully equipped for cooking. Special touches included the lovely gift basket upon our arrival, beach chairs and towels,... more boogie boards and snorkel equipment. We enjoyed this location for its quietness, access to spectacular snorkeling, and wonderful walking and running paths along the ocean. Spent a week on Maui and loved it all but decided that Napili Bay was the best location for us! less

Perfect Hawaii get-away!!
Where to begin?? The condo booking and check-in was seamless, and the condo itself is lovely. Everything a person would need is already there, and you're steps from the best beach in Maui. We stopped at Costco on our way in and got essentials, which... more worked out great so that we could relax in the morning and have breakfast on the balcony in our PJs and have lunch snacks on the beach. Only ate out a couple times, Kimo's and Merriman's, and of course the Gazebo, otherwise, ate in. So great!! Ice was already in the freezer and we also received a wonderful gift basket with great Kona coffee and other Hawaii treats! So sweet! The bed is super comfortable and the beach chairs were the absolute best! The only thing I could think of to say even partially negative had nothing to do with the condo and everything to do with the 5:30am bird and rooster wake-up calls. Lol that's the beauty of vacation, I just rolled over and went back to sleep!!! Thank you annie and Claudio!! xoxo less
— Sarah and Annie, Stayed 05/20/2012
The location can't be beat, right on Napili Bay. Not a luxury resort, but who needs that??? Accomodations were comfortable, room clean and well supplied. No a/C, but ceiling fan was fine. I'd stay here again and again! There was some confusion about my checkout... more date. I was contacted by Cathy? several days before my checkout date, asking when I was checking out the next day. Apparently her information was based on a reservation that was canceled and was not updated. This was easily straightened out. Information received from Claudio was straight forward and made check in easy. less

Comforts of home in Paradise.
Fabulous location right on Napili Bay. Excellent for swimming, boogie boarding and snorkelling. Condo unit was clean and contained pretty well all that we needed for two weeks except meals. Owners were pleasant to deal with, presented us with a gift basket upon arrival and... more were helpful when information was requested. The beaches in that area are exceptional and all amenities are nearby. Exceptional value all around. less
— George, Stayed 04/16/2012
Nice condo with all the amenities. It has a full kitchen with full size fridge, etc. There was a nice fruit/gift basket awaiting us. Last year we stayed in one of the condos closer to the beach. This condo was just as nice, 90 dollars... more a night cheaper, and it took us 20 seconds longer to get to the beach. Napili Market is a 5 minute drive, so we ate almost all our meals at the condo. Walking distance to Seahouse, The Gazebo, and Merrimans restaurants. Its a quiet location at the end of the building. From the lanai, you can see the ocean on the right and the West Maui mountains on the left. Every morning we walked the Kapalua scenic trail, which skirts the ocean for over a mile before turning upland. All in all, for us, this vacation was way less expensive than going to Florida, and about 100 times better. less

Our Maui vacation 2012
Our Stay at Napili Bay Resort (Condo 218) was fantastic! Claudio and anne were very easy to work with regarding our reservation and made sure all of our needs were met. Although the condo is located one building back from the beach side of the... more complex, you can still see the ocean from the lanai. At the time of our stay, construction was being done on the land next to the condo. We were not affected by the noise or the workers whatsoever, because we tended to be away from the condo during the hours of construction. Most importantly, Claudio informed us of the construction being done in advance, which was not problematic. The condo itself has a galley kitchen, which includes, a coffee maker, full size refrigerator, stove and dishwasher. The local grocery center is conveniently located less than a mile away, which by the way offers fresh poke, yum! The beach is 1/2 block distance from the condo and within walking distance to the wonderful Sea House Restaurant. The snorkeling in Napili Bay is quite special in that 3 turtles inhabit the general area and you can swim with them. We will definitely return and recommend this condo to vacation. Sincerely, Deb and Jim less

A Beautiful Piece of Paradise!
We completely enjoyed the condo; it was great to be able to prepare our own meals using the condo's full kitchen and the common barbecue grills located downstairs. The ocean view from the Lanai is quite nice and the tradewinds blow through the unit, keeping... more it nice and comfortable. It was very quiet while we were there. The Napili Bay beach is beautiful and just a few steps away. We used the snorkeling equipment provided by the owner; it worked just fine. We left a couple of noodles behind for future snorkelers (they help with flotation). The only improvements we could recommend are: 1. the Internet didn't work at all and from the comments seen in the condo's journal lots of other renters have had this problem as well. The DSL light on the modem blinked constantly, which indicates a line problem. I rebooted the modem several times, but it did not fix the problem. Contrary to what some people believe, some of us do have to keep in touch with work and family while we are on vacation! Finding wifi elsewhere was a challenge. I called the local condo representative for help with the Internet problem; she followed up once but didn't get back to me after that. 2. The resort could use a hot tub; possibly they could reach an agreement with the Napili Kai resort next door to use theirs? Just a suggestion. Overall, we had a wonderful experience at Unit 218! less

Thank you Brian and Julie for your feedback on our unit, I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Regarding the internet connection I will research the issue and see what can be done to improve the reliability of the connection. I understand some guests really need access to the internet and I already pay a monthly fee to be able to provide this service so it’s important that it’s working. On the hot tub suggestion I will see what we can do. Aloha Claudio
Ideal location for your Maui getaway. Great value for paradise s
Best value for the dollar here. Steps to one of the best beaches in Maui. Snorkel with sea turtles right outside or swim in the calm sea. Can walk to restaurants. Unless you are the high maintenance type, you will love it here. Comfortable bed... more with the ocean breeze and sound of the waves accompanied by birds singing at sunrise and sunset are sure to please. Or you can spend $500 plus a night at the Four Seasons... less

Napili Bay Resort Condo 218
Our stay was fantastic from the get go! There was a lovely little care package awaiting us upon arrival. Location was great and the owner of the unit Claudio went out of his way to ensure we would be satisfied. I would definitely stay here... more again. Comfortable, nice little view, easy beach access. less

A cozy, perfect for 2 place with everything you need in paradise
Walking into this clean, cozy condominium, we were so excited by our perfect find for our first stay on Maui. From the welcome gift basket with the personal note, the the kitchen stocked with everything you would need for any recipe, the incredibly comfortable queen... more size bed, and the back patio with the view of the ocean (complete with snorkel gear, boogie board and beach chairs), we could not have hoped for more. less

My daughter and I were looking for a reasonable place to stay for our September vacation on Maui. I came across Napili Bay Resort and looked at the info on 218. It looked like a nice place for us to stay. Were we surprised when... more we arrived. It was on one of the beaches(Napili Bay)that we like. The accommodations were really nice. Everything we needed was there. We were greeted with a beautiful gift basket with pinapple, bananas, chocolate covered macadamia nuts, a tote bag etc. The place was clean. We felt we were staying in a little bungalow in the jungle as outside from the lanai were all sorts of trees to the front and to the side. The birds would be singing in them in the morning. The grounds were very pretty. On the lanai, we could see the ocean. To get to the beach, it took just a few minutes. You walked across a path and unlocked the gate, and there was the beach. I think 218 is the best condo in the whole complex. We were close to all the places we like to go. We finally found the Gazebo and ate there three times. We did not go in the morning and stand in line, we waited until 1PM and went and had breakfast. We walked over to Turtle Cove and went snorkeling with the turtles. We snorkeled also at Honolua Bay, Kapalua and Napili.We went on the Coastal Trail three different times. This was a beautiful walk. Once we went all the way to D.T. Fleming Park. The other two times we made it to the boardwalk. We were close to Whaler's Village and Lahaina. We ate twice at Mama's Ribs and Rotisserie. This place was great. It was not far from the condo. It is at Napili Bay Plaza. We like the Gazebo there on Napili Bay. We also went to Cool Cat two times in Lahaina. My daughter and I are planning a trip for next September. We have stayed in two other places on Maui that were quite more expensive than this one, but this is our favorite. It would not be big enough for our entire family, but it is just the right size for my daughter Shauna and me.This was my 16th trip to Maui less

The room was very nice. We very much enjoyed the ability to cook full meals in a well stocked kitchen. We loved sitting out on the porch eating breakfast with an ocean view. Comfortable bed, plenty of space. It was very nice to have beach... more chairs and some snorkel equiptment provided. Thanks. less

Paradise on a budget!
Napili Bay on Maui is a perfect snorkeling bay and Unit 218 in the Napili Bay Resort is the perfect place to stay to enjoy all of Maui. We stayed for a total of 17 days on Maui and split our vacation into three different... more sections. If we were able to do it again, we still would have gone to Hana and stayed there for a few nights, but we would have doubled the time we stayed in Unit #218 at the Napili Bay Resort. Don't miss Honolua Bay for more snorkeling. So very close to Ka'anapali and Lahaina. Doesn't take long to drive to Kihei and the drive around the north part of the island past the blow hole is a beautiful adventure. less

Great Price, Great Place, Great Time!
My husband and I stayed in Condo 218 for our 10 year anniversary. We loved it! The condo was very clean, updated, and comfortable. They provided beach chairs, swimming gear, and basic kitchen essentials. The balcony has an ocean view and is just a few... more steps from the beach. The bay is great to snorkel in because of the reef. We hope to return soon. less

A great value vacation rental
The Napili Bay Resort is a great location for a quiet and relaxed vacation. Unit 218 was quiet and clean and the owner was very attentive to details and to our needs. We will definitely return and refer friends and family.

We ill Be Back
As we have for the past several years we had a wonderful time. The location is great and the overall experience with the people and the facilities is hard to beat. The beach is really an oasis and the outdoor grills are great for entertaining... more and getting to know the people. The easy access to the beach walk is a real plus, as is the short walk to the Gazebo. less

A bargain on beautiful Napili Bay
The owners welcomed us with a wonderful fruit basket and followed up by quickly addressing our two concerns (a faulty shower head and front door louvers that were not operating correctly). We were comfortable in the condo, and we enjoyed the friendly folks staying at... more Napili Bay. This place is truly a bargain in a very attractive location. By the way, travel a bit north and park in the beach access area at Kapula to enjoy another snorkeling spot and a fine beach-side walk. less
— Oregon retirees, Stayed 02/08/2011
We stayed in room 218. Just steps away from beach. You get preety good view of the beach from the Lanai. the pictures are deceptive, the beach is much more closer than what you percieve to be. and We just loved that. The room was... more stocked with tons of extra plillows and towels. We also also found a boogie board to use in the patio. We felt kicthen was adequately stocked with enough kitchen utensils to make breakfast. All and all a really confortable place to stay. Did I say it was literally on the beach :-) less

Good Value for the Location
Although the location and beach are excellent, the buildings are looking a tad tired and during our stay, seemed to cater more to families with small children or younger couples. The owner Claudio responds quickly to your concerns.

We stayed 9&10Nov2010 and enjoyed the full size kitchen. They had plenty of good cookware, utensils, plates, and a dishwasher. The front door had wood louvers as did the side windows and door. If the room was too warm all we had to do was... more open the louvers on both sides and turn on the fan and the room filled with lovely cool air n minutes. A great feature. The queen size bed was very comfortable and we slept well. The Lanai is comfortable with a small table and 2 chairs. They had boogie boards with leases for our daily use. This was a bonus. We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed the sounds of birds and the waves. On the 11th we switched to a 2nd condo and the owner coordinated this with the housekeeping staff, which made for a very smooth move. Our thanks to the owners & housekeeping staff. We had a lovely stay. less
— SeaMaui, Stayed 11/19/2010
Excellent value, great stay
If you want to stay right on the beach but don't want to pay for luxury, this might be the place for you. The condo is in an older but well maintained building. It's situated right on a beautiful sandy beach. The condo is also... more well maintained and has everything you could need for an enjoyable stay. It's a bit smaller and rather dark inside but the lanai has an excellent situation, surrounded by lush vegetation and with views of the ocean. Also, being at the end, it's very quiet. Don't go expecting luxury and you won't be dissapointed. We found everything we needed for a wonderful stay in Napili. less

Loved our stay in 218
We had a great time- the welcome basket was so nice. The condo is really the perfect location for easy beach access. Our favorite part of the trip were snorkeling and being on the beach. It did get a little muggy/warm but the extra fan... more helped us to sleep comfortably and the bed was really soft. The last couple days of our stay they decided to reroof the place so that was not very pleasant with the noise and smell but the days before that were great! less

8 nights in Napili 218 for our honeymoon!
Great experience, great price! We certainly saved a lot of money by using the fully appointed kitchen. View of the ocean from the linai. Received a great fruit basket upon arrival. No a/C in the units, and it did get a little toasty. Two fans... more helped. Condo had a lot of extras, such as beach chairs, cooler, snorkel stuff, etc plus some Tide, plastic wrap, foil, etc. which I replaced when I used. It's not a "party place" - it's a nice relaxing, respectful crowd. less

Great Stay at Napilli Bay Resort
My wife and I stayed in unit 218 at Napili Bay Resort for a week in Sept. 2010 and it was a great experience. The place was as much or more than what we expected. The unit is not Ocean front but it is diffinately... more a great Ocean view. It is closer to the Ocean and a larger and clearer view than what the pictures show. Right on one of the nicest beaches in Maui and it was not very crowded at all. The room was nice and clean, no a/C but with the louvers open and the great tropical breeze it was nice and we slept great on a very soft matress (the feel of a feather bed). We cooked several meals including breakfast every morning in the unit and I grilled steaks out a couple of nights. Would diffinately recommend this as a great place to stay. Fyi, the Napili Market Grocery Store right in Napili only about a 1/2 mile drive away is a good place to shop, the prices were surprisingly as low or lower than the other Super Markets such as Safeway and Times. less

Beautiful condo in a perfect location!
My husband and I stayed in this condo for 10 days for our honeymoon in July. The condo is in great condition and the location on Napili Bay is perfect. We loved the view of the ocean from our Lanai. The owner has stocked the... more condo with everything you could need for cooking your own meals as well as coolers to bring food to the beach. There are also boogie boards and snorkel masks on the Lanai. The owner is extremely prompt on getting back to you with any questions which I really appreciated. The condo does not have aC but it stayed cool enough with overhead fans and a box fan that we found in the closet. The bed is also very comfortable. Overall, it was an amazing stay and I would highly recommend this condo to anyone looking for a private place on an amazing beach! less

I came to Maui to de-stress and #218 was exactly what I needed. The room was welcoming, exceptionally clean,nice amenities, and though at the 'back' of the condo complex it has a wonderful (did I say already? "quiet and private") view of the ocean from... more the lanai. I arrived late afternoon and sat on the lanai with my wine for the sunset - and saw 2 whales breeching. Kathy, the condo cleaner was so friendly and so helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to stay in #218 again or to recommend it - highly. Best deal I've found in Hawaii. less

A romantic and private Maui experience.
My husband and I absolutely loved our week spent at Napili Bay, unit 218. The studio condo was extremely clean and inviting, and even though it was on the end of the condo complex, it still had a great view of Napili Beach. We loved... more how we could step out our front door and be lounging on the beach in under a minute! We especially appreciated all the little considerations, like the beach equiptment, mini-cooler, extra fan, etc. Our least favorite part of the condo was the bed - it was not only extremly hard, but seemed to slope oddly away from the center and made for sore backs and necks the following morning. However, the bed aside, we had an absolutely fantastic experience and we will try to return again soon to this private little get-away! less

Aloha Emilyin. We are very glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your feedback about the bed in our unit. Since this is the first time we received such feedback, I will follow up with the guests since your stay and potentially look into replacing the mattress the first opportunity we have. Thank you again and we hope to have you back in our unit again in the future. "Aloha Emilyin. I just want to let you know that we replaced the mattress and box spring a couple of weeks ago and to thank you to again for bringing this issue to our attention."
Our engagement on the beach at Napili Bay...
My boyfriend and I got engaged on our first night on Maui on the beach at Napili Bay. We absolutely loved our condo, which made our wonderful vacation even more enjoyable. The condo was easy to find, easy to park, and close to all the... more necessary stores, etc. that made our stay relaxing and confortable. The condo was fully stocked with everything we could ever need: a beach cooler, flashlight, welcome gift basket, dishes and kitchen supplies, etc. It was exactly what we needed and what we expected when we booked the place. We had breakfast on our patio listening to the waves every morning. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants a relaxing, beautiful, safe place to vacation. less

Quaint and lovely
The reservation process was efficient and friendly. I enjoyed the independence of having a little apartment instead of staying at a hotel. This condo is nicely located close to a small mall that had pretty much anything you would need for a stay. It was... more clean and well equipped with access to a gas grill, laundry room and a nicely maintained private beach. There is no air conditioning but the apartment had great crosswind ventilation and a very effective ceiling fan. Perfect size for couples or a lone traveler. less

Great Beach Location
This was our second time staying at Napili Bay, but first time in this condo. We got a great last minute deal, and were very happy with the unit especially since it was on the end but still had an ocean view. The location is... more ideal with Napili Bay Beach right outside, Kapalua resort area nearby with walking trails, restaurants, spa, etc. The unit had some great amenities such as beach chairs, snorkel gear, towels, etc. Recommendations for the owner would be to fix the very high transition from the tile to hardwood. We stubbed our toes/tripped so many times on that - Ouch! Also, it would be great if there were more comfy pillows and more selection of dishes such as bigger cereal bowls, baking/cookie sheets, utensils, etc. less

Aloha Kristine. Thank you for staying with us for the 2nd time and for your feedback on things we can improve in our unit.

Aloha and hope to have you back again soon.
Great vacation at Napili Bay
We stayed at Napili Bay Resort unit 218 for 10 days in September 2009. The condo had very comfortable furnishings. Weather was marvelous, wonderful breeze and sounds of the surf every day. View of the ocean from lanai. Napili Bay is superb for swimming and... more snorkeling. The Seahouse Restaurant is within walking distance, and is a superb restaurant on the beach with great sunsets. At the other end of the bay is the Gazebo Restaurant (serving breakfast and lunch only) Will definitely return. less

The location of the resort and condo was perfect for a couple...especially for the affordable price. Napili Bay is great for sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling and boogie boarding. Room 218 is a 1 minute walk to the picturesque beach with 2 great restaurants located on it:... more Sea House and the Gazebo. The room had plenty of ammenities including, a cooler, beach chairs and boogie boards to use for free. It was also clean and quiet and even though you are not right on the beach, you can still see a good view of the beach/ocean from the Lanai. Also, there are so many other great beaches, restaurants, snorkeling spots and shopping within 3 - 30 minute drive of Napili Bay Resort. less

My friend and I stayed in condo 218 for four nights, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo was clean, with a great modern kitchen which meant we could cook our own meals. It was also very well-equipped. The rest of the condo was great... more too, with a comfy bed and couch. We loved having breakfast on our lanai each morning. I found the information provided in the condo about the local area, places to eat etc. very helpful. It was nice to have recommendations from those who know best! The condo was well located with shops within walking distance and so close to the beach. The only criticism I have is that the condo is quite dark during the day without the lights on. On the other hand, it did help to keep the condo cool. Overall a brilliant place to stay, I'll be back again soon! less

It was a very nice place but when we booked the condo it said it had air conditioning. When we arrived it only had a ceiling fan and thatched windows. The area was beautiful but it was definately hot and sticky. Especially since this was... more our honeymoon! Oh, and they had said we would get a welcome basket, and we didn't :( That was kind of dissappointing but I guess that would've been above and beyond anyway so I can't be mad.

This condo is perfect for two people -- small, but has everything you need. The place was clean and tidy when we arrived and a basket of treats was waiting for us. The only minor glitch during the week was that Internet access was sometimes... more unavailable, but the owner was very cooperative in trying to get the problem solved. The beach is right next to the complex and was never crowded. The snorkeling is good here. Restaurants and stores are conveniently close by in Napili and Kapalua. This area is much less crowded and more low-key than places farther down the coast. We had an excellent, relaxing time and will definitely stay here again whenever we get the chance. less
