About the property

Condo, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-4)

Napili Bay is one of Maui's most precious beaches and bays. This half moon bay is terrific for snorkeling, boogie boarding, even surfing. Fish, coral reefs and turtles are found in this intimate bay. At certain times of year, whale watching is essential, educational and inspiring. One can swim with the turtles. They cluster out in front of this unit off the rocks and around the corner at "turtle bay". Watch the sunset every night from your lanai while looking across at the light and magic show of Molokai.

This unit is a second floor, end unit with vaulted ceiling. It is the best location in the complex! (that's why I bought it - location, location, location). Unlike ground floor units, this unit is completely private. The view from the lanai looks directly at Molokai. Sunset Mai Tais from the lanai every night is not to be missed! Out the door is the pool, barbeques, and the very famous Gazebo Restaurant - all oceanfront. 6 acres of lush landscaping. Minutes to Kapalua for golf and tennis. 30 seconds to Napili Bay. 7 minutes to Kaanapali and 12-15 minutes to Lahaina.

About Stephanie Witt

My name is Stephanie Witt. I bought my unit in 2000 sight unseen! I had been staying at Napili Shores for years with friends. I am in real estate, so location, location, location was a top priority for me. I-276 is far and away the best location in the complex. It is upper floor(therefore private), end uint with vaulted ceilings. The sound of the surf, the sunsets are amazing, not to mention the whale watching and turtle surfing.

Stephanie Witt purchased this condo in 2000

Why Stephanie Witt chose Lahaina

I had lived on Maui in the 1970's for 4 years and then moved to Oahu. I am back to where my heart is. Maui is Wowee! It is a blend of Oahu, Kauai and all the Islands.

What makes this condo unique

Oceanfront, whale watching, and relaxation. Entertaining my friends at sunset on the lanai. See ing the ocean from every corner of the unit! Sleeping next to the sliding doors, which I keep oepn all day and night.

Great location right on the oceanfront and very well equipped apartment with everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. There was a mixup with the booking and the apartment was occupied by others when we arrived but the situation was handled excellently by the staff and inconvenience was kept to a minimum.

The apartment is in an excellent location and has plenty of space for two people.

The apartment is very well equipped with a lot of unexpected extras: beach chairs, bodyboards, cooler, etc.

Highly recommend!

This is without question the best unit at Napili Shores. My wife and I stayed there for Thanksgiving week and were completely happy with the accommodation. It directly overlooks the rocky shore, and we found the sound of the waves very soothing at night. Other than the sound of the waves, it was completely quiet. Magnificent sunset views from the lanai. Close to one of the two pools, the Gazebo Restaurant, barbecue facilities, and a short walk to the beach. There is no air conditioning anywhere in the complex, but we kept the large sliding glass door open all night and there are both a ceiling fan and a standing floor fan. Stephanie, the owner, is extremely nice, helpful, and responsive. Highly recommended.

Best unit at Napili Shores!

  • 5 of 5

We have had the luxury to staying in this beautiful condo for a week and we are sad to leave. This has to be the best unit in the complex. It is a front row seat for the evening sunsets, it's on the 2nd floor which means more privacy, it's close to the beach access, pool and Gazebo, and it's very close to the ocean. Sleeping at night with the sliding door open and listening to the waves was our favorite. The condo is well appointed with everything you need and it has been updated a bit, which makes it more comfortable. I highly recommend it and we are so thankful to have found it. We will be back again someday! Thank you!

It's hard for us to imagine staying anywhere else. We spent all of our breakfasts

and dinners on the lanai - the views, the sound of the surf, and the sunsets

were outstanding. The suite is nicely furnished, well stocked with

utensils, dishes, and pretty well anything else one might need for cooking

and eating. The bed is comfortable and situated perfectly for the fabulous


Helpful information regarding local services and features of the areas is provided. For example we used the information on local hiking trails. Next time we'll make greater use of the beach stuff, e.g the chairs, but did use the beach towels.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your kind words about my little grass shack by the sea! I too love my second home - not just a rental, but my second love. Hope to see you again sometime. Happy New Year and Mahalo for sharing, Stephanie

Slice of Paradise!

Location was perfect. View was extraordinary. Inside the condo it was well laid out and surprisingly cool!

Only small beef was that wifi was spotty. Otherwise, paradise!
