Aloha, the Napili Hale is a perfect family vacation house located in Northwest Maui. Napili Hale is the south living area of a plantation-style home and is attached to another 2 bed/2 bath living area. The south living area has its own private entry, and the large yard is shared space. Napili Hale is across the street from Napili Bay, a tranquil, leeward bay with a white sandy beach. Sunsets from Napili Bay are simply surreal with both Lana‘i and Moloka‘i off on the horizon.
Packing for your trip to the Napili Plantation home is easy, as we provide our guests: iron, ironing board, hairdryers in the bathrooms, towels and linens, beach towels, and a starter supply including paper products, trash bags, laundry and dish detergents, soaps and hand soap, shampoo, conditioner. Air conditioning available in the bedrooms upon request - $22 daily fee.
There are three additional beaches within walking distance (within a mile) north of the house; Kapalua Bay, Oneloa Bay (Ironwoods), and Honokahua Bay (Fleming Beach Park, fronting the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua). All of these beaches are spectacular and beautiful and the Kapalua Coastal Trail connects them all! The Coastal Trail makes for an amazing walk or run any time of day! This trail passes some of Maui’s most pristine sand dune ecosystems as well as an ‘U‘au (Hawaiian dark-rumped petrel) sanctuary at Hawea Point. This trail also connects to the Village Walking Trails and the Honolua Ridge and Maunalei Arboretum Trail systems are nearby. Please inquire about cultural tours of Maui. If you choose to walk along the Lower Road to Kapalua Drive, you will pass several world-class restaurants; the Seahouse Restaurant at the Napili Kai Hotel, Merriman’s Kapalua, The Pineapple Grill and the Plantation House, just to name a few.
There are a variety of activities that you can enjoy in walking distance that include swimming, snorkeling, hiking, boating, tennis, golf and surfing. Ka‘anapali is 5.8 miles south and Lahaina Town is 9.4 miles south. There you can enjoy more beaches, shopping, dining and lots of fun activities and entertainment.
There is a picnic table in the large yard. Napili Hale is a wonderful place to experience kama‘aina living and enjoy time with your family and friends!
My home is legally permitted and owner managed.

About Colleen Medeiros
I am a wife and mother and live on Maui with my family. Our affinity with the outdoors keeps our family busy with hiking, horseback riding, camping and sports of all sorts!! We are people who enjoy a simple life of family, friends and good times!
Why Colleen Medeiros chose Napili
This property gives travelers the opportunity to experience kama'aina (local) island living rather than hotel/resort living. This property has been in my family for over 5 generations and I thought keeping it as a rental property would give my family and myself continued opportunities to use it as it is a very sentimental place for us. Like most Hawaiian plantation-style houses, it is modest in size and simple. Much time is spent outdoors at the beach and therefore the house is designed and decorated to accommodate this lifestyle. Over the years, it has become surrounded by condominium complexes and hotels which offer additional amenities such as restaurants, golfing and tennis to name a few.
What makes this House unique
The uniqueness of the house comes with its location and history. This residential neighborhood was once considered a very remote area of Maui where a handful of Hawaiian fishing families lived. In more recent historic times it was surrounded by a multitude of orchards that Honolua Ranch manager David T. Fleming planted in an effort to diversify Ranching operations. The historic Honolua Ranch headquarters were located up Office Road, by the Ritz Carlton Hotel. The Seahouse restaurant across the street at the Napili Kai Resort, was originally the Managers Club for the Honolua Ranch at a time when there where no hotels along Napili Bay. During that time, my great Aunt Lahela lived in a house right where the Napili house is today. There were few other homes around. The few that were nearby were other Hawaiian families, and the Ranch managers. There were plantation camps located along what is now Office Road, where the Ritz Carlton is today. The plantation camps were generally set up by race with individuals and families of Hawaiians, Chinese, and Japanese ancestry living in separate 'camps'. Those who lived at these camps were employees of Honolua Ranch and then D.T. Fleming's plantation/orchards. Napili became a vacation destination in the 1960's and most the condo's and hotels you see there today were built around that time. The Napili house property and the pocket of residential homes immediately surrounding it are some of the last vestiges of the Hawaiian community, and Hawaiian families, that were present prior to the Honolua Ranch era and prior to the areas transformation into a vacation destination. It is really a special place for us as generations of our family have lived here.

Awesome House by Napili Bay!
Amazing home right across the street from Napili Bay, cool, quaint, island-style living at its best!
Very quaint detached house amongst the resorts
Lovely place with a very attentive and caring owner. Had some issues initially on arrival which were swiftly and generously sorted out by the owner. Lots of roosters crowing in the mornings which I liked but my friends were not so keen on. Earplugs are the winning formula!
If you want a little getaway nestled between the gaudy resorts then I recommend this place. There's a large lawn out the front with a table under a beautiful old tree which we loved.
Has everything you need
Enjoyed the neighborhood, the close proximity to the beach, the house, the nice taste in dishes, sheets, towels and the chickens and the sweet lab next door. Plenty of room for the two of us. We also had a nice area to run every morning. I thought since the property is across from the beach, we would be able to see the ocean but you can't. It's blocked by a small resort/condos. Also the outside picnic table and chairs were layer out by the road and within view of other neighbors so we never really had a comfortable place to hang outside.
Thank you so much for your review! We are glad to hear the house had everything you needed and was comfortable. We are working on creating a more private space for guests. Our first priority is finishing the fence between the house and the neighboring house. After that project, I hope to create an outdoor area that is more structured.
Very authentic location in Napili
Great cottage for a stay away from big hotels, but so close to the beach. Very nicely done, awesome owner, always available when needed. We had a great time, thanks Colleen. We didn't mind the roosters, kind of romantic, the garbage trucks some mornings where noisier. I love the huge trees in the yard!
Ultimate location for fun and relaxation!
The cottage is cute, clean and has everything you may need. It's close to a couple amazing beaches with lots of sea turtles and beautiful, clear water. There's also hiking trails along the coast nearby. We live on the other side of the island and had a romantic, and active getaway.
Thanks so much Monica! I'm glad you enjoyed the house!
Awesome home in Napili
We just returned from our vacation in Maui and found Napili Hale to be just awesome. It had everything you needed for a trip to the beach: cooler, beach chairs, sand toys for our children, snorkeling equipment, bodyboards, and much more. The house itself was wonderful also, very roomy and comfortable. We loved it there and would recomend it to anyone who doesn't want to stay in a cramped condo or hotel room. Very affordable.
Thanks so much Mary! I'm so glad you and your family had a nice time!!
