About the property

Condo, Studio + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

Please contact us for our DISCOUNT RATES at the Napili Shores Resort! We welcome you as our guest in this quiet, informal paradise on over six landscaped oceanfront acres along Maui's west coast. You will have great views of Molokai and Lanai islands and witness beautiful sunsets while you are strolling on the beach or from your lounge chair. The ¼ mile white sand beach on Napili Bay has exceptional swimming and boogie boarding. Walk up to Kapalua beach for more reef snorkeling or to walk the shoreline trail system. Go around the point to Honokeana Bay to swim with the green sea turtles.

Ours is a ground floor studio apartment with fully equipped kitchen, a queen bed and a twin day bed/sofa. There is a large closet for storage in the private dressing area. The screen doors allow you to enjoy soothing tropical breezes. Walk out of the private lanai to view the ocean and you are just steps away from the solar-heated pool and jetted whirlpool spa. Start your day at the rock wall enjoying the free coffee watching for turtles and in season the visiting whales (see my 'breakfast toes' photo.) If you want the best macadamia nut pancakes on the island, be sure to try the on-site oceanfront Gazebo Restaurant. Walk to several other restaurants or barbeque your meal at the convenient gas grills and have a picnic on the grounds. Napili Shores unit D131 is a great vacation destination for couples or young families. The property is non-smoking in compliance with Hawaiian State Law.

Just 5 minutes up the road is the Kapalua Resort, featuring upscale dining, shops, and premier golf courses and tennis courts. Unlimited nightlife can be found close by in Ka’anapali and Lahaina. There is a general store and a full service supermarket within walking distance. Visit the Farmers Market where you can enjoy taste tempting tropical fruits (including fresh Maui gold pineapple), vegetables, and cheeses and know that your purchases support the local sustainable agriculture. Hiking and horse trails are plentiful in the West Maui mountain area.

With so much to explore on Maui, it is our hope that you will be one of our guests that will come back to stay with us again, and again. We love Kama'aina.

About Ed or Laura Taylor

We discovered Napili Shores on our Honeymoon and fell in love with it and West Maui, too!

Why Ed or Laura Taylor chose West Maui

It is not a High Rise busy commercial resort. Great for honeymooners, retirees, and young families.

What makes this condo unique

Only 2 story buildings... with a neighborhood feel.

Unit D131 at Napili Shores in Maui

  • 5 of 5

It seems my first submission did not get to VRBO. So I am writing again to say that I was well pleased with unit D131 and the upgrades and decorating that was done since my stay there last year. It is a well-appointed unit, clean comfortable, relatively quiet, and attractive. Everything was in good working order. Although I do not do much cooking while there, the kitchen did not lack for supplies.

The Taylors, ( owners) have always been friendly, helpful, and prompt in replying to emails, etc. I have stayed in their condo in the past and plan to do so again in the future.

Owner's Response: So glad the Front Desk could answer your questions but I do need to make sure that our guests know that they need to contact us directly with any problems or repairs to our condo because we are private owners and can offer discount prices.

Beautiful but loud water fountain in front and boisterous prewedding parties in the pool for 4 days directly in front of the unit.

This unit, D131, is older and shows use, but accommodations are adequate. TV and internet was good

  • 4 of 5

Complex location on the northwest coast of Maui is very nice, and well maintained, about a 15 minute drive to Lahaina. Complex is probably 25 years old, has two pools, a small restaurant overlooking the ocean, and a marine equipment rental shop. The unit itself as stated, is adequate, the owners have been doing some work, but there is more that needs attention. The shower itself is old and while superficially clean, looks dirty, it would not drain till maintenance came and removed the stopper. The entry screen door is in bad shape. The bathroom towels (which I believe are provided by the complex) are pretty thin and small. The carpet in the living area looks like it has been there quite a while and probably needs replacement in the near future. Kitchen had everything we needed. We had a great time and enjoyed our stay and the small issues noted above did not interfere in any way with our visit.

Super base for Maui adventure

  • 5 of 5

Great property to have as a base. Wonderful location in West Maui and the unit had everything we needed for our stay. The owners Ed and Laura were fantastic in the run-up to our trip and made sure it ran like clock-work even managing to extend our check out time to fit in with our late evening return flight. Thanks for sharing your Maui home with us. It was an unforgettable experience . Can highly recommend this property.

Whale watching from the shore beginning November through April. Visit Lahaina for Art Night on Friday evenings to see art from all over the world, and meet the artists. Watch world class surfers here and also just around the corner at Honolua Bay. Try saying Humuhumunukunukuapua'a while snorkeling.
