"Spent a month there in December and enjoyed it very much. The one bedroom unit comes with everything that you need for an extended stay, the owners have done a great job of provided whatever you are likely to desire. The unit is cozy, less than 600 sf, but the owners have optimized all of the space with nice furnishings and clever storage.
The unit is about 10 minute walk to Napili Beach in a residential complex, it is not part of a resort. There is a partial ocean view from the lanai and the storage closet off of the lanai offered snorkel gear, boogie boards, misc. beach toys, a small cooler, and fabulous beach chairs for your use.
The living room includes a sofa bed, two chairs, tv and small stereo, games (backgammon, cribbage, scrabble), and some very nice Hawaiiana decor.
The kitchen is small but includes microwave, full range, full refrigerator, every pot and pan that we needed in a month, blender, dishwasher, and all the dishware and silverware you will need. It is very complete. There were various condiments, oils, flour, sugar, etc. in stock on a "replace when you use them up" basis. We found this very convenient as we made many meals at home. There is a small dining table with three chairs adjacent to the kitchen.
The bathroom is small but includes enough storage, tub/shower combo, and all of the paper goods and cleaning goods needed for an extended stay. There is a washer and dryer off of the bathroom that allowed us to pack all of our clothes in a carry-on.
The bedroom is on the end of the unit closest to the parking lot and there is some noise from the nearby road and people leaving for work in the a.m. There is plenty of closet space, a good queen mattress, more nice decor, a dresser, and extra linens and several beach towels. Once again, the owners have anticipated a visitors needs.
Parking is convenient. There are two sets of stairs between parking and unit.
Things you should know. This is a residential neighborhood rather than a resort, normal working people living their lives here. These units were originally built as employee housing for Kapalua and thus are not fancy, although the owners did a good job of softening the edges. The unit would be better suited for two or three than four people. A couple with a child or couple would be fine. It is small and dining table is set for three. Finally, Napili is a great beach and this unit provides walking distance access to Napili and Kapalua at a very reasonable cost."
