The Napili Bay
Travel Blogs from Lahaina
After we arrived on Maui and rented our car for the week, we drove to Napili Beach where we would be staying in a condo we rented for the week. The condo complex sits on the beach. Our condo was a single and was beautifully decorated by the owner. It had everything we would need except food, which we would buy at the local market. Our condo was …
Today James took a private kiteboarding lesson right where the sport was invented.
I had gotten some great advice to check out Paia a nearby beachfront town with lots of good shopping. So I left James to learn a new extreme sport and quickly burned 2 hours buying souvenirs and checking out lots of the boutiques. For a moment, I lamented not knowing the gender of our baby because there were so many cute baby ...
These pics are from the Old Lahaina Luau. As far as the food goes, Ron was more adventurous that I was but both of us found it pretty awesome. There's a lot to be said for the open bar too! I'm pasting below a little bit on the actual Luau presentation. I've pulled this info from the FAQ page on the www.oldlahainaluau.com site if ...
... from other sand. It was formed from lava, so it was made up of harder grains of sand. The shimmery white and blue of the water contrasted beautifully with the black beach, especially with the greenery surrounding the rock walls around the area. We had fun taking some shadow pictures on the beach before walking back up the stairs to our car.
We then drove a short distance to Hamoa Beach - a pretty beach with tan sand. We were at ...
... show was seeing the sunrise over the clouds, not something you can see everyday. Afterwards we drove on up to some other view points, avoiding going down at the same time as probably 100+ cyclists on the other popular tours. Tour finished off with a breakfast at a golf course, popular sport on hawaii costing usually at least $100 a round but for the backgrounds you can see why! Back to the hostel in time for a pickup for an afternoon flight to Big ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Napili Bay Lahaina
Loved the Napili Bay
Absolutley perfect. A quiet little paradise right here. Beautiful beach even more perfect sunrises and sunsets. Would reccomend to one and all
We love Napili for being close to Kannapali and Lahaina. The Napili Bay is nice and quiet, right on the beach. We stayed in unit 218, which is on the end, so its quiet. The owners have recently renovated and the tile work and kitchen are beautiful. We ate breakfast every morning in the unit before heading out to snorkel. There is a nice lanai with a table for two and boogie boards and beach chairs for your use.
Make sure to snorkel around the cove and see the turtles.
I highly recommend staying at Napili, 218.
you can't ask for a better location on maui. i especially like units 208 and 209. they are literally "on the beach" and have all the amenities of home. for your "true" hawaiian vacation, pick napili bay!
Wonderful Vacation in Hawaii
Just a wonderful place to stay.Very peaceful, private and just a beautiful unit with a lovely ocean view from the lanai with the sound and aroma of the ocean waves rolling in..All the kitchen utensils are available for cooking when you want to just hang out ..Grounds are very exotic and well groomed.Just a fabulous sand beach with gorgeous sunsets.A perfect play area for all that enjoy the water and sunshine and watching for an occasional whale breaching in the distance.Nice picnic area with with gas grills and picnic tables for the gathering of friends and family.Friendly and very helpful staff.Would certanly recommend this resort to any one wanting to stay in Maui.
Napili Bay #201
We loved our stay at this wonderful resort. #201 is a real jewel as is the beach, surf and views. We hope to be back some day.
Napili Bay 217
Napili Bay 218 was a great condo and working with the owner Claudio at Aloha Condos was a great. We loved the condo and its quiet location. Be sure to go snorkeling in the bay. We saw a turtle and much more. The bays just north of here are killer too!! Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did. :)
Best condo location and rate in Maui! Amazingly close to the best beach!
Napili Bay 217 is a wonderful condo, just steps away from the fabulous Napili Bay and Beach; it met our needs and more for our stay in Maui! The Napili Bay Resort is a very quaint 2 story resort, allowing you to not feel overwhelmed by people or concrete! Condo 217 has a lovely ocean view and is fully equipped and decorated with a tropical Hawaiian theme to match the peaceful gardens outside. Fall asleep at night with the lull of the sounds of the ocean. Being on the 2nd floor, created a more private, quieter and romantic environment than the friends we had staying in one of the other condos on the first floor.
My wife and I celebrated our 15th Anniversary at Napili Bay in August 2003. It was wonderful. The views were amazing. We snorkeled in the bay everyday. We found it better there than at Black Rock. This is a great place if you want to be away from the highrise hotels and loads of people. There can be crowds but nothing like Kaanapali. You fall asleep and awake to the sounds of the waves hitting the beach and the trade winds keep you comfortable, even in August.
Will return every year!
Just returned today from #102 - what a view, what a beach! check out apvacations.com to see what we woke up to every morning! Many vacationers from other high-end resorts came to this lovely hidden spot. The water is great for snorkeling, the beach has a steep shoreline for the boogie borders to slide into (fun to watch), and the resort itself is low-key and perfect for that quiet get-away. You really feel like family and not just a guest. P.S. -hope the newlywed who lost his wedding ring in the water was contacted by the little boy who found it on the shore!!!
A True Aloha Condo Experience
This has been heavenly - we don't want to leave since we know this is as close to heaven on earth as two people can be. We will cherish our memories of "Napili Bay 201" and definitely be back again. Whale watching, rainbows, and early morning walks on the beach are some of our favorite memories of Napili Bay.
