Always a great time staying here... I keep coming back.
Great bay to swim and snorkel, beach is right outside your door. Listen to the waves 24/7. Everything is clean and maintained...
Nice to be back to a familiar and comfortable vacation rental.
This is my fourth time at Napali Bay Resort. It is a wonderful location and a comfortable place to enjoy Maui. The studio is set up to accommodate vacationers with all the things that make your stay enjoyable.

The location is unbeatable for the price.
The location is perfect. There is not another place where I can walk onto the lanai and be hanging over the sand. The place is a short drive from anything you need and in many instances, walking distance. 209 is not new, but it is perfect for me. It is clean and decorated nicely. I have stayed in this unit 2 times,and in another unit, I believe it was 215, once. Obviously, I love this place. The corner unit makes the view panoramic,and neighbors on only one side. Also, no tree right outside to block the view of the beach, as in other units. Again, perfect for me, and I will choose this unit again next time, as long as it stays reasonable.
A very relaxing and rewarding stay.
This location is literally located directly above a quiet family orientated beach with the water no more than 20 meters away from your balcony. The home has all the cooking amenities you need plus a few basic supplies such as oil, salt and pepper. The best part was we didn't have to pack up to go the beach, rather just brought the minimum supplies. If we needed something we simply walked up to the apartment to get it.

Great Place to Stay and Play
This condo has everything you need to enjoy Napili Bay. The kitchen is fully appointed with all the cooking utensils you will need. The bed is very comfortable, as is the rest of the furniture. The lanai is awesome, with fantastic views. We watched whales, seals, turtles, dolphins, and surfers every day. Bring your binocs. The beach is right out front, with very easy access for swimming and snorkeling. The beach chairs are great. Restaurants, shopping, snorkel and surf gear are within walking distance. Fabulous golf is a short distance away. The whales were very active, and watching them from the lanai was awesome! The support staff did an excellent job with communication getting our stay set up, and going above and beyond accommodating a Fed Ex delivery before our arrival. We highly recommend 209, and we will be back!

Just what we wanted!
My husband and I have been to Hawaii several times; each get closer to staying at our "perfect" location. This time, we knew that being right on the beach was our big priority. We also wanted to be able to snorkel and to be close to--but not in the middle of--all the amenities of Ka'anapali.
Napili Bay Condo 209 pretty much hit all our wants. We had a wonderful view from our lanai of Napili Bay, the turtles, whales, and people-watching. Tho it's a condo, everything we could have wanted was there, from beach chairs and towels to an extra drying rack. Nearby Napili Plaza was three minutes (by car) away and we went there daily for Maui Tacos, snorkel equipment, groceries (and great sandwiches for lunch), and Mama's BBQ. Getting to Lahaina and Ka'anapali is very easy, and heading north to the attractions was also a snap.
I appreciated the easy check-in, the gift of a totebag and yummy mac candy, the responsiveness of the manager on the couple of times we had to call (couldn't find the TV remote! Oh, no!). For the two of us, this was the perfect place. Families may find it a bit small...but just rent two! :-)
209 is a golden spot!
Second time to Napili Bay Resort. Like last time, had a terrific stay. The location is fantastic - there's a swimming inlet in front of the condo and turtle snorkeling in the next inlet 2 minute walk away. The corner view is ideal. We would prefer the taller chairs on the balcony to see over the rail instead of through the rail. When it mattered, we stood up. Chairs or not, we both feel like we would want 209 again.
This was our first time at this resort and we were very impressed with it. Was clean and stocked with everything we needed. Our dishwasher didn't work, but we called and someone was sent right away to check it out. The beach bag filled with aloha goodies was very thoughtful and the bag perfect for our time at the beach. As this is a corner unit, we had great views and didn't hear anyone in the unit beside us. our only complaint is that the lanai doesn't have a rail, it is solid wood so you cant see through it down to the water and beach below. the lanai chairs don't sit you up high enough to see over. There were ice packs left in our freezer to take with you in the provided cooler that helped a lot on our day trips. Overall this is a very lovely room with everything provided to make your stay enjoyable.
Awesome view and so close to the water!
My husband and I just got back from a 6 night stay at Napili Bay condos to celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary. This place was recommended to us by a couple of friends who have stayed here several times before. We loved unit 209 as it was an upper corner ocean front room. It is very clean (never saw a bug) and comfortable. I liked the fact that it provided beach chairs, boogie boards and a cooler to borrow during our stay. I even donated a Costco beach umbrella when we left. The lanai has a couple of chairs and a table so we had many of our meals sitting out there looking at the sunset view. I know some of the other units have had big remodeling updates, but I don't need stainless and granite to be comfortable for a vacation that I am mostly spending outside on the beach. I am a neat freak, and one thing I recommend purchasing to bring with you is some windex or 409 type cleaner...It would have been helpful during the week for counter and sink touch-ups. There is not a pool at this property, but for me it was not a problem as I'm a snorkeler and was gone from the property in several snorkeling spots nearby all week long. We look forward to returning to this property...We think it is the best value in such a primo location of Maui!

Great place to relax on the beach and just get away
We really enjoyed our stay in unit 209, our second stay at this complex. It couldn't be any closer to the beach, with an incredible view from the lanai. Close walk to good food at the Sea House restaurant at one end of the bay. You can see the Sea turtles from the beach or even from the lanai. It is simple, one room place but big enough for two people comfortably. Great water pressure in the shower, no a/c but two ceiling fans to circulate the great Maui breezes. We would return to this unit.

Another great stay at Napili Bay
We have stayed at the Napili Bay resort 5 times, this was our first stay in unit 209. Our stay was booked through aloha Condos and the process is set up to make it very simple and worry free. The condo was exactly as described, includes everything you need to have a very enjoyable stay. The unit was very clean, The ocean was just a few steps away and the lanai had an amazing view. The resort has laundry facilities and a barbeque area, parking is free.
This is a great area to stay in if you enjoy walking, the beach is beautiful for early morning walks, the Beach house restaurant and bar is at the far end, has great food and an excellent happy hour (2-5) with the best pupus anywhere. For the more ambitious, the walk to the Honolua General store is a good workout , there is also a very nice snack bar in the back of the store, the food is very good.
If you enjoy the ocean this is the place to be, swimming is fantastic, snorkelling and turtle watching also very good, and the sound of the waves will put you to sleep earlier than you expect after a busy day.
The only negative we found were the lanai chairs, they were too low to take advantage of the view, and when it is hot the cushy padding became very warm and not comfortable.
Beach chairs, boogie boards and a cooler are provided , we enjoyed our stay and would love to return soon.
Frequent Hawaii Traveler
Love Napili Bay
Best spot on Maui and "The Napili Bay" is perfect. We loved our room and the location. We always check for that corner room first.
Lake Oswego, Oregon
Best location on the best beach in Maui!!!
We loved Unit 209 at Napili Bay Resort and would return there in a second.
It is the southwest corner room on the 2nd floor, so an easy 180 degree panorama of the sea & sand, right on the beachfront.
We rec'd excellent service from Chuck, who always answered our emails promptly, Lisa the local agent who was there in 5 min. when our coffeepot went kaput, and Lee, the resident manager who helped me with change when I was in the laundry room. (They do have a bill changer but it didn't like my $s).
The room was well stocked with enough towels for our 2 week stay, enough TP, & tissue. Also had 2 better than usual boogie boards (we have had other experiences), 2 beach chairs, small ice chest, laundry basket, drying rack which we used on the lanai every day, & more. Laundry room has used books and magazines and an ice machine right outside.
We loved the closeness to the beach, 30 seconds, and that a key is required to come into the complex from the beach or to go out, so there aren't people wandering through.
It is on the small side, but we weren't in our room much. It is not as updated as some of the rooms, but not as old as some of them, either. Huge mirror on the north wall reflects the sea and makes room look larger.
Since we were entertaining two friends almost every night (!) who were staying nearby, we found it very cramped on the lanai, which is not deep. We did have trouble figuring out how to get the oven doing what it's supposed to do. And while everything was immaculate, the tub and surround must be the originals and could use a little facelift. However water pressure was awesome and hot as we wanted it! Minor suggestion.
We loved the tree right in front of the complex which provided the best shade and had the nicest people under it! We call it the "Giving Tree" after the Shel Silverstein book!
You can't go wrong with this unit 209!
Condo 209 is in an excellent location with outstanding views of the napili bay area & is right on the beach.
This was our fourth visit to The Napili Bay Resort and the second stay in unit #209. The location can't be beat as you are directly on the beach with panoramic views of both Molokai and Lanai. Unit #209 is on the corner of the second floor directly facing the bay so the lanai is open on two sides which gives you what I think is the best view of all the condos in the complex.
Aloha Condos manages #209, as well as several other units in the complex and I can't say enough about how great they are to work with. Chuck and his group are very professional, communicate quickly and definitely have the "aloha spirit". Both condos that we stayed in were well kept, had very comfortable beds and all the amenities that we could wish for ( free WiFi, dishwasher, cable tv, beach chairs, boogie boards, etc). The only item that is missing from # 209 is a fridge with ice and water in the door so it is more convenient to make that mai tai!
On our first stay in this unit we were amazed at how loud the ocean was, so if you are a light sleeper perhaps you should bring ear plugs for the first few nights until you adjust to the crashing surf. After a short adjustment we now love the continually changing character of the ocean as well as the constant breeze that keeps the condo comfortable.
I think that the Napili Bay Resort has the best location and is the best value in West Maui. Napili Bay itself is picture perfect, with a great sandy beach and a low key " Old Hawaii Feel". Thanks again to Chuck and his group for another memorable stay.

Wonderful stay at Napili Bay
We had a wonderful stay at Napili Bay Resort #209. This was our second stay at Napili Bay, and 209 is just a perfect unit in a great little affordable resort. The condo itself is well equipped with just about everything you would need for a comfortable week on the beach. (We only had one issue, as we think the oven isn't working properly, should be looked at or repaired.) This resort has no pool or hot tub, which doesn't bother us as we spend our time on the beach or in the ocean, but if you are looking for a full service resort, this isn't it. We had unbelievable views from a private lanai in this corner unit, and the proximity to the ocean on this beautiful, low key bay is fantastic. I have never stayed anywhere in Hawaii where I was so close to the water. The sound of the surf in the units facing the ocean is amazing. The water in Napili bay is perfect for swimming and snorkeling, as is the water in the very close Kapulua bay. There are great walking trails in Kapalua, and the General Store at Kapalua is a nice inexpensive place to have breakfast or a cup of coffe after an early morning walk in Kapalua. The Sea House Restaurant on Napili is also a good breakfast, lunch or sunset dinner spot with reasonable prices for Hawaii. We watched dozens of whales all week from our lanai. The grocery market in Napili is just minutes away, and a much better alternative for buying food and supplies than the very busy Safeway in very busy Lahaina. There is quite a bit of traffic on this side of the island, especially from Lahaina to Kapalua, but was not a big problem if you avoid driving at rush hour. We would recommend Napili Bay wholeheartedly! Read more

Lori, thanks for the “heads up” on the oven. We checked it with an oven thermometer and the temperature control was not working properly. We replaced the entire oven yesterday along with a new dishwasher. Owner, Chuck
Low Key and Fabulous
Our stay in unit 209 at Napili Bay Resort was fabulous. The studio room was updated with tasteful decor and it was clean and very comfortable. The grounds are kept up very nicely and the management friendly and helpful. I never heard any of the neighbors, although the sound of the ocean waves would have probably drown them out! I've stayed in lots of fancy resorts, but prefer the low key, more local feel of Napili and very much appreciated this particular condo.
Another great stay at Napili Bay, this time directly at the beac
A great and comfortable and clean apartment giving you a feel of the real Hawaii.
You should love the sound of the ocean.
Pender Island, B.C.
One of the best places we have stayed.
Aloha appears to take great care in ensuring what is promised is delivered. This condo is well-equipped: a full kitchen with all the utensils you would ever need; deck chairs and boogie boards for the beach; a comfortable bed. The ocean view is spectacular. Napili beach is one of the nicest beaches we have ever been on. Surf at one end, and calm water at the other. Welcome basket of fruit and chocolates is a really nice touch. We'll be back.

Fabulous, restful, idyllic, happy vacation at Napili Bay
We've been returning to the Napili Bay Resort for 37 years - since 1974! And of all the units we've experienced over time, we like 209 the best. It is on the corner of the building, thus the lanai has an oceanfront view to the north, and a spectacular sunset view to the west. We love to experience early mornings and sunsets and moonlit nights on the deck - after snorkeling in the bay for up to four hours every day. The amenities of the unit are superb and tasteful - though we hope the owner will upgrade the shower/bath someday. And perhaps a high definition TV with a DVR might be a nice touch... (though we don't go to Maui to watch television). We love it here, and we shall return.
Awesome! Hurt to leave.
Place was great, clean, decorated nicely and easy to find. View was wonderful. Corner balcony broadens the view. Beach extras made for much more enjoyable beach days.
Dee and Steve
It was perfect!!! Wonderful view and the Condo had everything we needed. A lovely gift basket welcomed us along with the beautiful sound of the ocean right outside our door. The pefect condo!!
Perfect Island Get away
This was our first trip to Maui and Condo 209 was just what we were hoping for: R&R;, surf and sand. This condo was wonderful! From the welcome basket of island treats to the nicely equipped kitchen that enabled us stock for meals to suit our pace and maximize our time / resources, to the beach chairs and boogie boards. The view is unforgettable from this corner unit and the sound of the surf magical. We could not ask for anything more.
Best feature: the view and proximity to the beach, the ocean air-flow through the unit.
Worst: having to leave
Great seaside condo!
This little gem was everything we were looking for in a stay by the sea in Maui. The ocean was ten feet out the door> The sunsets were beautiful. The view from the 2nd floor. balcony were fantastic! We could see the whales spouting and breeching from the balcony! The Hawaiian theme of the condo was charming. We had everything we needed including beach chairs and boogy boards. The unit was just right for two of us, some may say small but it was a studio and we spent most of the time on the porch. The kitchen was well equip for cooking but not there was no place to eat (table to sit at), we ate evening meals out, so only cooked once but did do breakfast and lunch on the porch. We loved the proximity to the ocean, the second floor for a great view of the bay and the less populated area of Napili Bay. I would go back in a heatbeat if I were to return to Maui!
Above my expectations!
Our stay was unbelievable! We didn't need a thing for our stay, all was provided with the room. We watched the beautiful sunsets, the whales and the turtles all from our lanai. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the place was equipped with all neccesities! The beach was amazing and the grounds were beautiful.
awessome as usual
We find the Napili Bay Resort to be an ideal location to stay while on Maui. It is a great place to just sit on the beach or to come back to after a day of touring the island. The beach is clean - great job Leeland! - the stores for necessities are close by and the people in the resort are always friendly.
We will be back.
Great place to stay. We have been to other condos located on Napili Bay, however the views from the Napili Bay Resort condos are unmatched. During our stay we frequently saw humpback whales breaching and "playing" in the channel between Maui and Molokai. My wife and I were blown away by the relaxing sound of the waves crashing 25 yards from the condo...we will definitely be back in the future.
Laguna Beach, CA
Napili Bay 209 for the win.
Couldn't have asked for more... not only is the studio condo spacious and directly on the beach with a full kitchen, it's got little nicknacks that make it extra special... I mean, a rice cooker and Tupperware? Awesome.
The Perfect Spot on the Beach!
This was our first trip to Maui and we feel we were spoiled with our condo at Napili Bay. We spent every morning drinking coffee on our lanai watching whales and turtles. Snorkeling was fun and just a dozen steps from our room. The open air feel of the room was perfect.
Richmond, British Columbia
Comfortable condo with all of the necessities. Excellent location overlooking the beach. Would be nice to have a safe to place passports etc in when leaving the condo.
Truth in advertising!
Condo #209 was everything it promised to be in its ad. The only thing the ad couldn't verify was the sweet smell in the breeze, the sound of the ocean and the brilliance of the sunsets. We even saw a rainbow or two.
Wonderful welcome basket from the owner. The directions and instructions to access the condo on our own were perfect. Free wifi, too.
If you are looking for a low key place to experience beautiful Maui this is it!
Best condo in the building with 2nd floor end unit right on the beach with an awesome view of Napili Bay and the island of Molokai. The condo is small but tidy and has all one needs for a few days away from the rat race.
Relax,enjoy and soak up the view.
My wife and I had a fantastic week on Maui. Napili Bay Resort Condo 209 was just as expected. No problems what so ever. Hadn't been to the islands in 25+ years, but it really stood up, unlike Cabo, the circus has come to town down there. Hawaii is still paradise. Don't miss the food at Pacific O, our favorite, Bling Bling and Hapa Hapa are outstanding. Ocean sounds were soothing, bed very comfy, fans did an excellent job of cooling us off. Napili Bay beach is the best, low key, good snorkeling, and close to other great snorkeling bays. Big Kahuna omelet at The Gazebo a must. Aloha
Steamboat Springs, CO
This room is the perfect location. Great views, very comfortable, and on the best beach in Maui. We were looking for beach with waves and snorkeling, Napili is really not a surf beach, but has great snorkeling. There are surf beaches just above and below Napili, and none of them are as beautiful or relaxing. Turtles everywhere, eels, rays, and countless fish in the bay. Make sure you go to the Seaside Restaurant, on the north side of the beach at Napili Kai resort, for happy hour 2-5. Great apps and drinks at a good price. We got lucky and just happened to stay here without knowing how nice it was. Now you know, just stay here and forget looking elsewhere. Chuck and Kathy were very nice as well. We will be back for sure.
Great beach condo.
Condo was exactly as described. Terrific welcome basket. 30 seconds to the
beautiful beach. Condo building itself was very quiet, but be prepared for
early morning beach noise as the kids tend to play early. Great snorkelling
around the south rocks, and a really nice swimming beach at Napili.
Newport Beach, CA
The room was clean. The neighbors were quite. The ocean was loud and wonderful...and the view was amazing. Without a doubt the best room on Napili Bay! We will be back.
Perfect Place to Be
We arrived to Napili Bay Resort after three days in Oahu. The pace was slower immediately after we left the airport and continued that way throughout the week. The condo was clean and had everything a person could need. The welcome basket was cool and it felt very homey tight away. I was worried about no air conditioning but it was never a problem. This condo is literally right on the water which was super nice but at night the waves are loud. My wife loved that and said it helped her sleep but I had to get used to it. We would return again in a heartbeat.
Van Nuys, California
The Napili Bay Best Kept Secret on Maui
This is my 7th or 8th time visiting The Napili Bay. I always stay on the 2nd floor which allows the best view of killer sunsets each night. There are sea turtles swimming 25 yards from your lanai. The location is great because its away from all the touristy stuff in Lahaina and minutes from some of the best FREE snorkeling on Maui. The condo is perfect for making dinner with all the pots and pans, etc. The king size bed is comfortable and the condo is clean and styling. They also have a great bbq area for grilling your fresh fish and pineapple. The Napili market is around the corner for any extra needs. Once you visit here, you will not want to stay anywhere else. We will be back again next year.

More great memories
My husband and I have stayed several times in various units at Napili Bay-they are the perfect size for two people and the views from the lanai and the beach itself can't be beat. Napili is also a perfect central location if you have a conference anywhere in west Maui during your stay.
The people at Aloha Condos are extremely great to deal with and have our 100 percent vote of confidence :)
Thank you... I could not think of a better way to spend a honeymoon! The staff (manager -sorry forgot her name) was especially accomadating... very satisfied.

Little Piece of Heaven
When we arrived, we were greeted with a basket of fresh fruit and chocolate. The view from our room 209 was stunning. Best view in Maui, I can say that because we stayed in different locations on Maui before, and never had such an incredible view! The room is 20 seconds from the beach! The apartment was not overly updated but super clean, wonderful bed!!! Huge and comfortable! We slept like babies in it :). Everything was available. There is no air conditioner but it did not bother us too much. If it got warm we would open all the windows and enjoy the breeze and the view. We were 5 minutes away walking from famous Gazebo restaurant, where the locals love to eat too and on the right side walking distance to Seahouse! Incredible food too! Try macadamia, banana and pineapple panecakes in Gazebo!
I liked everything. It would offcourse nice to have an air conditioner but again not a must! Incredible experience. A little piece of Paradise!
Great place to stay
We loved this condo. It is right on the beach with fantastic views. It has a really comfortable king sized bed. A little older building but maintained well. Had comfortable beach chairs, boogie boards and towels. We especially liked the snorkeling right from shore where we saw tons of fish and large sea turtles up close. There is no pool, or extra services like a large resort complex but you don't need anything more with the beach steps away. For us the perfect beach get away without crowds. Aloha.
White Rock, B.C., Canada
My hubby and I are still glowing after a wonderful, relaxing (too short) vacation at Napili Bay Resort. We stayed in #209 and were very content with this corner unit. It was clean and well equipped, and tastefully decorated. We thoroughly enjoyed the spectacular view from the balcony...we even saw a few whales breaching off in the channel! It did get quite hot on the balcony from 2-4pm, but the beach is steps away, the ocean is lovely and we could always find a spot of shade under the big tree to sit and read and relax. The snorkeling on the reef in the bay is decent, and we saw green sea turtles swimming right in the bay. A really excellent snorkeling site is aprox. 10 kms up the road in Honolua Bay, and I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys snorkeling...we saw incredible corals, turtles, a Moray Eel, and countless beautiful tropical fish...most excellent!
Fruits and veggies are pretty expensive on Maui, but there's a little farmers market/grocery store on the left side of the road heading towards Kanapali that had the best prices. Also we found some good fresh reasonably priced fish and meats in the Napili Marketplace store on Napilihau Street, which is a 2 min. drive away from the condo. They also have a good selection of wine, etc. The entrance to this store is a little hard to spot as it's located inside a small strip mall of sorts, and you probably won't see the entrance door unless you get out of your car and check out the store fronts...it's a little to the right of the middle.
Anyways, we managed to put 500 miles on our rental car in a week...drove up to the volcano, and took the road to Hana...went to the souvenir market in Kihei, and just generally had a great time!
Hope to be back here one day soon, and would highly reommend Napili Bay Resort...the location is fabulous.
Great Condo, Nice Location
My wife, 4 month old son, and one set of grandparents spent a great week at Napili Bay Resort. Condo 209 was actually just right for all of us. The accomodations were spacious enough. The sunset views were incredible right from the balcony. Picture whales in the distance lit by the setting sun! Really. The cove just outside was filled with turtles and provided some great snorkeling, even for my parents. Though it is a little bit difficult getting in and out of the water for those less fit. A Snorkel Bob's is a 10 minute walk for rental equipment. The proximity to Napili Beach made for a nice easy stroll. There is a local grocery, coffee shop and a Maui Tacos all close by.
Lahaina is a 15 minute drive. We are cyclists and rode a round trip heading north from the condo all the way around to near the airport and clockwise to Lahaina. A beautiful ride with good climbs early on.
The condo was kept clean, towels exchanged regularly. There were adequate cooking utensils as we prepared most of our meals at the condo. We called ahead and rented baby equipment from a local baby rental business. It was there when we arrived and was picked up after we left...very convenient.
Maui is enchanting...Napili Bay Resort made it easy, condo 208 has a beautiful location.
Great location, comfortable and clean, great location, highly

Our Destination Wedding in Paradise
Could we have picked a better location! When planning a trip, much less a wedding, from clear across the continental United States, internet reviews and gut feelings make your decisions. We could never have made a better choice. With all the comforts of home, a backdrop of crystal clear ocean, and memorable sunsets, Napili Bay gave us everything we wanted and more. We stayed in Unit # 209 (Top Floor, Corner) and soaked up every minute. With amazing hospitality and traditional Hawaiian surroundings, we would recommend Napili Bay to everyone. We will never have to worry about where we want to stay on Maui, because we found our paradise!!
And don't pass up the Macadamia Pancakes at the Gazebo next door!!

We have stayed at few of Napili's resorts over the years and this was an excellent choice. Great views, easy access to the beach, room was very comfortable, the little village store in the complex is very nice to have, BBQ grills make for some great nights of casual dinners and close to all that Maui has to offer. There is a little surf noise being down on the end of the beach but after all that is why your stay in a beach front condo isn't it. Aloha Condos was a perfect host and one of the easiest vacations I ever set up. Aloha and Mahalo. Kevin and Becky
This is a perfect spot for an inexpensive romantic couple getaway ... quiet execept for the ocean washing up on shore ... great little getaway - great views and nice facilities for a romantic getaway on a budget. The gift basket when we arrived late that night was the perfect welcome and the sounds of the ocean are just incredible.

Beautiful Beachfront Location....!!
We stayed in Unit 209 for our 1st Anniversary. Napili Bay is a
beautiful quiet beach and we loved that part of the island of Maui.

Wonderful place to stay
My wife and I stayed at the Napili Bay condos and I am extremely happy with it. If you are undecided about staying at a condo vs a hotel....GO CONDO! You won't have to deal with gift shops, elevators and all that mess. If you are unsure about which beach, Napili Bay was wonderful for adults and kids, but wasn't overcrowded. About the condo itself: I stayed in a second floor unit facing the beach and at night the waves crashed hard on the rocks there on the edge of the bay and this resort appears to take the brunt of the decibels. I had to wear earplugs to sleep. But I would do it again, and stay in the same room again, and wear earplugs again, because the view and the location of the condo was awesome.
Dreams come true here
Hundred of words can never begin to explain how wonderful of a trip we had here. It is truely one of the best times of our life!
The very BEST!!!
As described on the website, this condo is one of the most popular condos on-site. No doubt why - 2nd story, oceanfront, corner condo with privacy, beautiful views of the beach, Molokai across the way, the turtle activity, and lovely beach, great photo opportunities for the sunsets, not to mention the nearby Gazebo restaurant for lunch and dinner. Besides that, the grounds were immaculate and had all kinds of beautiful flora, and we loved the availability of the gas grills and laundry. We took advantage of grill to do some dinners in, which helped fray the meal expenses. Transportation for island activites, such as the Haleakala sunrise bike trip and the Hana Highway excursion were easily available to us with pick ups at the roadside. All services were nearby, as were additional lovely beaches and blowholes. We would recommend Aloha Condos to everyone and would love to return to condo 209 in the future. I can't say enough wonderful things about Napili Bay - it was truly paradise.
We absolutely loved our one-week stay at Napili Bay #209. Writing this review makes me want to book a flight back for tomorrow. The condo was clean and bright, and it was perfect for our needs for the week. We loved being able to step out onto the small balcony and enjoy the beautiful view. Chuck, the owner, was great to work with and was very helpful in answering some questions we had as first-time visitors to Hawaii. I would recommend this unit to anyone.
The only thing to keep in mind, if anyone in your party is a light sleeper, is that you can't turn off the sound of the waves crashing on the beach. This condo is ON THE BEACH - and it can be loud (and, since it's a public beach, so can the people). Since the windows don't exactly "close," the sound can only be muffled - not completely shut out. It didn't bother me so much, but it did take my husband a couple of nights to get used to it. In NO way do I want to deter anyone from staying here, but if you like to sleep in silence, be prepared - you may want to invest in some earplugs!
FYI - my husband was also very concerned that this unit does not have air conditioning, but it was truly not an issue at all. It's very breezy, and hopefully you'll be spending most of your time enjoying the beautiful Hawaii outdoors anyway!
We stayed about 6 nights on the corner unit facing the bay. It was simple but had all that we needed. We fell asleep to the crashing waves on the bay and were greeted once by a school of dolphins. We relax mostly and swam during the day. We snorkeled with turtles just a few feet around the corner. We would stay there again. The best part was we got to use the beach chairs to gaze at the abundance of stars each night. One night we saw a few shooting stars.

We started well with the condo owner, Chuck, who is helpful and professional. The arrangements proceeded very smoothly, and when we got there late at night - the directions, instructions and key provided, were very helpful. The condo is attractive and well equipped with everything we needed and more. It really is as good as it looks in photos. The location of the condo is ideal, with a perfect view, and steps away from putting your feet in the ocean. We did see whales, turtles and superb sunsets. If you are looking for a restful, quiet vacation at one of the best beaches, this is the place to be.
We had a great time at the Alohacondos. It was very easy getting to the complex and Chuck made it a very easy check-in. There was NO hassle with anything. The beachfront condo has a great view of the sunset and has easy access to restaurants, snorkeling, and just lazing on the beach. We didn't feel the need to get up and go anywhere else. The sea breeze flows through the condo and keeps things cooled off at that time of year. The wireless internet access was a real bonus.

Sand and sea turtles in the back yard
We love Napili Bay. We found the area through a travel agent and
stayed at a local hotel. I recommended the location to a co-worker
who found the Napili Bay condo units. We tried them next and are
now true repeat fans. We know it, the sea turtles, the sunsets, the
view of Molokai, the local coral reefs and even some residents so
we feel like it's our little second home when we get to visit.
It's not fancy hotel living. It's comfortable, relaxing and friendly for
those who are looking to feel more at home and happy to hang out
in a studio apartment than be waited on. The bay is beautiful and
not too big. Therefore, you never feel crowded in.
Condo 209 is perfect for us and the owner is wonderful. He makes
certain everything is up to snuff and that you are welcome and
appreciated. The grounds manager is always there to help too.
The room is tropically decorated and puts you in the island mood
quickly. The bed and amenities are very comfortable. There is a
television and DVD/VCR if you're so inclined. There are boogie
boards and beach chairs to use.
We get our food when we arrive, cook in the evenings and have no
pressure to leave the bay unless we want to. Breakfast on the lania
watching the clouds drift by Molokai and the sea turtles feed on the
coral just yards away is fantastic.
The condo is on the west corner and you will be treated with
incredible sunsets every night. The only thing to note is that the
rooms do not have air conditioning - ceiling fans though - so it
can get warm inside but who cares when you need only a swimsuit
to enjoy Napili Bay.
Give it a try if you want to wind down from a hustle bustle life and
tune in to a relaxing and rejuvenating place.

tranquil oceanfront retreat
We recently stayed at Napili Bay Condos for a perfect wonderful week. The condo is right on the beach with a wonderful view of the bay and perfect sunsets. The snorkeling right out front is really good with sea turtles and lots of fish. We can't wait to come back!!
Great Place for Family or Newlyweds
My wife and I visited Maui (Napili Beach Area) in 2005,and wanted to come back, at least once more. The area is great for Family's, newlyweds and even singles. Our accomadations in 2009 provided the best view, and BBQ area for preparing evening dinners that made our stay both economical, romantic and special.
The grounds, which are natively landscaped only enhanced the "Hawaii Experience" and we would love to come back again.
Napili Bay Great Condo!
This was a great condo that I would highly recommend. The view was
wonderful and it had more windows than most because it was a corner
unit. It is a short walk to the beach which had some of the best
snorkeling anywhere (if you like BIG turtles that is!). We snorkeled
every day and saw anywhere from 5-30 turtles each time. It was
amazing. The condo itself was very clean and nicely appointed. We
found the price to be exceptional when compared to other condos and
the views of this one can't be beat! Again, I would highly recommend
this particular unit and would stay there again.
Fabulous Find in Paradise
We stayed at Unit 209 at Aloha Condos for a glorious week - did not want to leave!! Our rental car remained unused, as the beach was perfect - right down the stairs from our condo, restaurants nearby and a lovely little market and fish market we could purchase provisions. We ate almost all our meals out on the lanai, overlooking the beach and beautiful Napili Bay. The sunsets are gorgeous and the king bed was so comfortable. It was our 30th wedding anniversary and tanned, rested and recharged, we reluctantly made our way home, hoping to come back SOON to Unit 209.
