About the Property

Quiet, solitude and a view you will cherish your entire life.

Just installed: A9 is fully air conditioned for your comfort.

As a professional photographer* I take almost all my landscapes during the Golden Hours of dawn and dusk. This is when earth is bathed in the most luxurious and magnificent light. Whether composing into the light, or away, the light is simply magic. Common objects light up as if illuminated internally. The clouds and sky become cathedrals painted with a pallet ranging from pink, to magenta, to orange, to robin's egg blue.

As Napili is situated behind Maui mountains, there are no Golden Hours at dawn, only dusk. Napili Point is only one of two resorts in Napili where your day doesn't end at 4 or 5 o'clock, but an hour or so after sunset. Why give away the best light of the day, come stay at Napili Point A-9 and pick up those precious hours on us, no extra charge.

A-9 is fully air conditioned, your days and nights are cool and comfortable anytime you choose to be indoors.

Full daily maid service, with onsite management. There are less expensive Napili Point units on VRBO, but you will not have immediate 24/7 response to needs and issues arising during your stay.

Our newly upgraded one-bedroom unit is literally 10 yards off the ocean. If privacy and quiet are important to you, A-9 is one of only a few units on Maui that does not back up onto a parking lot, nor front on a pool or play area. As the day winds down, it is your world to enjoy. The only sounds you will hear are the waves slapping against the shore and the wind through the trees. There will be no slamming car doors, no early morning tour bus pickups, no late night revelers returning, and no crying babies to interrupt your time in paradise.

If you are looking for that romantic hideaway to spend intimate moments together you have found the perfect spot. A king size bed with memory foam provides the ultimate in comfort.

Situated on Honokeana Bay, referred to as Turtle Town, you are steps away from entry into ocean. The turtles, the tropical fish and coral of Honokeana Bay are simply amazing.

The Napili Point Resort has 2 swimming pools with unobstructed views of the islands of Lana'i and Moloka'i, and 365 sunsets per year. Large grassy areas welcome the sun worshiper seeking a bit of welcomed solitude.

Once settled in you will find it difficult to leave to explore other Maui destinations. However, when you do decide to explore Maui there are dozens of adventures awaiting. Golfing at Kapalua, snorkeling Honolua, ziplining the mountains, exploring blow holes and ocean fed pools, greeting the sunrise at Haleakala, driving the Hana Highway, and dining at world class restaurants are all within your reach.

Any time of the year is the perfect time to stay at Napili Point. Summertime is especially relaxing as our A-9 unit is away from noise and commotion associated with the influx of children to Maui during summer vacation. Late spring is also uncrowded with great weather and lower rates to be had. Another great opportunity for good weather and no crowds is the time after Thanksgiving and before Christmas. If you can fit Maui in during this time you will be rewarded with great airfare rates and uncrowded beaches, restaurants, golfing and shopping.

Give us a call and plan for the ultimate Maui experience---Napili Point!!

The best feature of A-9 at Napili Point is the ocean front, unobstructed view across the channel to Lana'i and Moloka'i of every sunset of every day of the year. Snorkeling in Honokeana bay is as good as any tour operator can provide practically anywhere else on Maui.

One of only a handful of completely sand beaches is located s short ocean front walk to Napili Bay. Napili Bay is as 'kid-friendly' a beach that exists in all of Hawai'i.

Surfing two spots immediately adjacent to the Napili Point Resort offer both beginners and experts fun waves during the fall through spring. World class surf spot Honolua bay is just several miles north on Highway 30.

Kapalua's world famous Plantation and Bay Golf courses are just minutes away.

Several restaurants catering to all tastes, including the Sea House, Merriman's, the Pineapple Grill and the Plantation House are within a few short miles.

A complete grocery store, the Napili Market, offers all your vacation stay needs with a great selection and reasonable prices.

A-9 unit is located about 10 yards from the ocean. It is constructed of solid concrete on all sides and the roof and as such is virtually soundproof. When you are in the unit the only contact with the world is the view across to Lana'i and Moloka'i. At night the only sound you will ever hear are the waves against the rock outcropping surrounding the property.

During the day you can sit under the Keawe tree you see in the opening photo, balancing sun and shade as the sun crawls across the beautiful Hawaiian sky.

After snorkeling in the bay, a refreshing cool or hot shower to rinse away that 'glazed donut' feeling is only steps away.

If you are into photography A-9 will serve as your home base of incredible land and sea scapes. Heading north on Highway 30 you will pass Kapalua Bay, Honolua Bay, an ocean blow hole, tranquil valleys and untamed shear cliffs rising hundreds of feet from the pounding ocean.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: Kristin and John Murk have been staying in Napili since the 1960's. Ownership of Unit A-9 at Napili Point Resort represents the best of all prior property ownerships at Napili. John is an avid surfer and professional photographer. Honolua Bay is his favorite surf spot on earth. Flowers, surf, surfers, sunsets and waterfalls are his favorite photography subjects on Maui. Kristin, who works as attorney for the State of California, spends her days snorkeling and reading. Her mornings and evenings spent watching sunrises with rainbows and sunsets with an infinite palette of colors.

Why Lahaina, HI, USA:
It offers the one most quiet and tranquil experience in Maui condo rentals and is air conditioned for your comfort. Located away from the parking lots, highway, and adjacent unit noises. (The above photo is from the lanai of the unit.) If privacy and quiet are important to you, A-9 is the perfect vacation condo. We owned several other condos on Napili Bay and found the road noise, the comings and goings of tour vans at 5 in the morning, the slamming of car doors, the late evening return of guests bidding their companions good night, screams of kids playing on the lawn and so many other unwanted noise as a constant distraction. Noise is not part of the A-9 experience

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
A-9 is within the Napili Point Resort, located on Honokeana Bay, with possibly the best views of Lana'i and Moloka'i. The ocean is at your finger tips. No need to drive. Snorkeling Honokeana Bay, Napili Bay and Kapalua bay. Two of the finest Maui sand beaches at Napili Bay and Kapalua Bay. Surfing Little Makaha and Hole in the Head. Or just plain floating in one of the two resort pools located right on the ocean. Uncrowded luxury awaits. No elbow to elbow sunbathing will several hundred of your not so close friends. You can even walk to breakfast at two of West Maui's most popular restaurants-The Gazebo and the Sea House. All your grocery needs are met at the Napili Market a short half mile away. Every meal can be enjoy with an unobstructed ocean view on the lanai. Takeout from Maui Taco, the Iron Imu and Okasuka's Market provide some of the very meals available on Maui.
