Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Queen Sofabed, 2 Baths (sleeps 4-6)
About Russ Sherman
We are from Northern California and honeymooned on Napili Beach. We finally decided we wanted to stay longer than a week or two that a time share offered so we purchased C-22 at Napili Point. After retirement we hope to come for stays of a month or more to enjoy the quiet and relaxation that Napili Point is known for. In the mean time we are sharing our second home with our guests interested in a true "paradise vacation".'
Russ Sherman purchased this Condo in 2002
Why Russ Sherman chose Lahaina
We were attracted to Napili Point because of the oceanfront setting and tremendous ocean views. This low rise, three story complex offers a quiet and serene setting that you cannot get at the large scale tower hotels and condos. Here you prepare your meals on oceanfront barbeques, snorkel outside your front door, sit on the grass with fellow visitors to enjoy the views and famous Maui sunsets or have a candlelight dinner on your private lanai.
What makes this Condo unique
Amazing ocean views, snorkeling with turtles outside your door, beautifully landscaped grounds, two oceanfront swimming pools, daily maid service, plus friendly and courteous staff help make your vacation one you will never forget. Our unit is also managed by the on site rental office so you make direct contact with them to immediately resolve any issues, need supplies or need an emergency repair.

Idyllic spot in the best corner of Maui
Spacious and well-appointed, the absolute highlight of this unit was the view from the lanai: from the same spot we could enjoy breakfast while watching the sun rise over the mountains and illuminate the cove below and relax after a day of fun with drinks and a sunset over Molokai, and during the day watch turtles in the cove and dolphins pass by in the strait. The orientation of the condo made for great breezes even during the warmest parts of the day, and there was plenty of space for the family to spread out and relax. Can't recommend this spot enough.
Best Vacay Ever !
Place was great. The view was incredible, we watched whales breach All Day Long ! Watched the green sea turtles in the bay and snorkelled with them numerous times. The unit was very comfortable with all the comforts of home. Loved the balcony and watching the sunsets. We will stay again, for sure !! Thanks Russ
Incredible views and we love going snorkeling in turtle bay
Very spacious for family. Wish bedrooms were reversed and the view of the ocean was the master bedroom. Also not ideal to have parking lot outside master bedroom windows but otherwise had a great stay.
Great location... great place
We just returned from a week at Napili area unit. The location is a GREAT choice on Maui for those who want a lower key area with snorkeling and beach right within a walk. The cove in front of all the units is not only amazing for snorkeling...it is also as beautiful to wake up to as any view one could have. This unit was in great condition. Much of Hawaii condos are older and warn.... and while this wasn't a new remodel ...it was in great clean shape. The second sleeping area is a loft. That may not be ideal for those with young children who want to watch TV or make noise late at night below. However...our tired teens slept fine even with some noise below...and we enjoyed the more open space. There are curtains that can be easily closed both across the top and lower of the huge windows facing the bay. This unit is about in the middle of the upper units and gives an ideal view. I found that the bay was more serene to look out upon than just the open ocean at the point. One can look down and see the turtles heads in the cove every day....and enjoy shade until late afternoon. The setting sun over the ocean was seen looking to the far right. The cable TV in the Living Room worked great. Property was well maintained. Walk to the Napili Beach on the other side of the point was an easy 5 minute walk. There were plenty of simply family food options in nearby Napili Plaza and Kapalua within a 5 minute drive. If one is looking for more fine dining...they will have to reply on Kapalua or drive to Kaanapali or Lahaina with the exception of the Sea House restaurant at the other end of Napili Beach which we enjoyed the last night.
Nice condo and great view with turtles
Napili Point is a nice location along the northern end of the west side of Maui. Nestled on a small cove, it is a visiting spot for sea turtles, saw turtles almost every day. Although, the snorkeling entry and exit can be a bit tricky, it is nice once you get out into the cove. Access to Napili Beach (Bay) is on a rough beach/rocky path, so it can be challenging for young children or older folks, but less than 5 minutes and you're there - so great access.
The condo is a nice size with no air conditioning. There are ceiling fans in the main room, the loft and bedroom. There is also a sun shade on the lanai. There was always a breeze so it wasn't too hot (Jan to Feb). The condo overall had lots of conveniences including 2, smaller flat screen TV's, 1 DVD player & limited cable, and internet (took us a while to figure out how to change to the DVD). Full kitchen including leftover containers, could use more spices but I understand. There were also beach chairs and boogie boards and extra fins. The condo could use a good fix up/paint job and the appliances are not stainless, again not that it matters (only the dishwasher, which was amazingly quiet). Beds were comfy and we had the loft bed set up as a king instead of two twins). The loft is open, so it was more difficult at night to be quite for our 10 year old, and it is pretty bright in the morning. Bedroom was able to hear others in parking lot and adjoining condos but wasn't too bad. some smokers would also smoke in the parking lot and then smoke would come into our condo. Maid service were nice and helpful. BBQ's were great and were cleaned daily. Pools were nice but no hot tub. Plenty of parking. Overall quiet and there seemed to be mostly older folks there. I expected a nicer/more updated condo for the price but the view and location were worth it.
We are very glad our guest had a pleasant stay. We have added an electric sunshade on the lanai in lieu of air conditioning as we get great flow through trade winds that keep the unit very cool, and the see through shade shields the afternoon sun. Unfortunately it seems this guest believes appliances need to be stainless to qualify as an upgraded unit. We have intentionally avoided stainless due to the hard water spots, and the entire condo was fully painted two years ago. Hopefully all guests are told at the front desk that the entire resort is smoke free so any guest should immediately complain if smokers are present anywhere on site.
Gorgeous Views and Quiet Property
This is our 7th time staying in Maui as a family and this was my favourite property of all. Nothing beats waking up to turtles swimming right off your deck! Napili is so quaint and quiet compared to the other areas of Maui but still fabulous restaurants and nice beaches. The condo was a perfect temperature with the levered windows to allow cross ventilation, the beds were comfy and the kitchen was well stocked with supplies. My husband who loves snorkeling was in heaven having one of the best snorkeling bays right outside our door. He went 13 times in 10 days and even saw an octopus. There is also a nice little market close by where you will find restaurants, coffee shops, a grocery store and a pharmacy. I will definitely stay here again!
Swim and snorkel with turtles and tropical fish outside your front door in Honokeana Cove, watch dolphins and whales from your private lanai, enjoy gorgeous Maui sunsets with your favorite tropical beverage, or walk 3 minutes on the oceanfront path to world famous Napili Beach. If golf is your game then Kapalua Golf Resort is a short 5 minute drive to the North. To the South you are 15 minutes from Maui's best shopping area of Lahaina town, or only 5 minutes to your favorite Luau on Kaanapali Beach.
