Recent Napili Shores Reviews


We loved our stay here. This is our third time at this location, first time in this unit. Things we loved: The unit was very clean and we enjoyed its location. You can see a small part of the water from the porch, and on the rainier days the interior is cozy and welcoming. It had just about everything we needed. When we arrived, the coffee pot had a small crack in it — the property managers came right away and replaced it. All in all, you really can’t go wrong here. Minutes walk to the beach, you’re close to the pool without being next to it, the unit is lovely. Things we didn’t love: We only bother including these things because of how much we paid to come (a lot for us). While it was only two of us, we were staying for six days and were only given two beach towels (when we asked for a couple more, they were reluctant a bit but did bring us some). We would’ve loved if the unit had a beach umbrella, but we rented one from the store on the property. Lastly, check-in was easy but we did get mixed messages from the property management company and the property itself. The front desk told us check-in was 3pm and check out 11am, while the property managers told us 4pm and 10am respectively. After arriving at 12pm to Maui and needing to do some grocery shopping, a 4pm check in time feels rather late, especially with perishable groceries (and the last thing you want to do after arriving there is get back in the car to go grocery shopping). Generally though, very few complaints.

Well maintained and centrally located in Kapalua. We were there with friends who were staying at the Ritz for a conference. We probably paid as much for 4 days as they did for 1 day. They had a car and we kept it for OUR free parking outside our room. Hot tub and pool steps away. Great location and 2 restaurants. Beach chairs and boogie boards. Walk to the beach. All mod cons. Had to go to grocery store (close drive) for coffee and beer. My pick for a budget vacation.

We are a retired couple in our 80’s. We have stayed at different places on Maui a number of times over the years. We like the low (2 story) type of resorts with open lawn areas best. The ground level B112, with ocean view, suited us perfectly. Being located right next to Napili Beach was great (no driving to get to the beach). We ate many meals at the unit and found it was well provisioned for our cooking needs (&BBQing). We only needed the air conditioner twice, as the fans and ventilation was fine. Conveniently located close to grocery shopping. Grounds and equipment are well maintained. We certainly enjoyed our stay.

We would like for no one else to know about this gem so we can stay here every January and February! Only annoyance was the loud dishwasher but we adjusted our timing around it. Evely, please own more units as you are great to work with.

We have visited Maui many times over the last 25 years and love Napili Shores. The first 4 or 5days we had some issues with noise from a hot water heater at the back of the unit. The resort got it repaired as quickly as they could; not something the unit owner had control over. We did read in other reviews that the Lanai was close to the sidewalk but we were surprised at just how close it was. People were coming and going from the parking lot, the beach and the restaurant all day. They would comment on the books we were reading, that’s how close people were. We had booked a three week stay and fully expected to have to do a bit of housekeeping ; but there was nothing but an old broom without a dustpan! If you don’t care about privacy, this is your place.

Unit is totally as advertised and pictured. Amazing ground floor views and short walk to Nāpili beach and not far to Kapalua Bay! Pools are clean, quiet and not crowded. The entire property is clean and very relaxing. If you can get a reservation here you should schedule it soon. I won’t stay anywhere else. We rented e-bikes and rarely drove our car anywhere.

I've been going to Maui before roads and parking lots were paved to Makena but first time in Napili. Although the brief glimpses of Lahaina town was devastating and it was sorely missed the Napili Shores was a good choice. Grounds: extremely well kept, BBQ's cleaned every day, and quiet time is actually quiet. Beach: short walk to sandy beach, rocky beach very close and well loved by a much younger group that me. Perfect site for whale sighting, albeit, quite a ways out but I didn't get motion sick watching. Condo: Lacked for very little. King bed super comfy and well, the sofa bed is a sofa bed. Everything worked, (great blender), furniture comfy and a rainy day in felt like home. Note to those that like to cook, there were no staples, spices, oils (bugs?) No big deal for us but you might consider packing or purchasing some in your first grocery shop. The Safeway and Canary Mall shops are open. Napili Market is close and provides great choices in their deli dept and poke cases. The fish market has really good, fresh fish but go early as they sell out. Truly one of the best stays I've had. I hope you feel the same.

We had a great time here. The location cannot be beat. You can see the ocean from your room and is a very short walk to the sandy beach. Property management was very responsive and helpful. This place is not a newly remodeled unit. Which doesn’t bother us. You’ll see some rust on the vents and some stains around. But we were totally fine with that. We care more about being close to the water which this place was.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The new finishes are beautiful and the extra large shower is nice. There is a very pretty view of Napili Bay, and from the lanai you can watch the migrating whales. You should be aware that there is no washer/dryer in the unit, just a coin operated laundry room up the hill near the lobby

Enjoyed our stay and the unit! Some feedback - Beach chair was broken, but thank you for bringing a new one same day! AC in bedroom needed new batteries upon late arrival (found some in kitchen after tracking down security guard who gave us some out of his flashlight.) Speaking of late arrival, I called to ask if there would be coffee for our first morning and the answer was yes. There wasn't any coffee in the unit. All of the Perfect Stay staff were pleasant when we contacted them. Thank you!

Nothing special for the price. Little attention given to details; ie, grungy patio chairs, coffee maker, appliances, pans, cabinets. Noisy toilet and hard water faucet stuck in bathroom. Minimal toiletries/kitchen supplies for long-term stay by management company.

Perfect view of Nspili beach, my favorite on Maui. Excellent apt and location.

This unit is centrally located in the Napili Shores courtyard and the Lenai faces views of the ocean from two angles. It is very close to the beach access gate and right on the path to The Gazebo Restaurant which means it's a busy location. If you are looking for privacy, this is not the unit for you. We did enjoy the people-watching with our one-year-old son. As other reviewers mentioned it could use some condo updates. The towel rack was broken and one of the electrical outlets for a lamp was falling apart so I tucked the lamp in the closet. The closets were a bit full of random items and not easy to access when babyproofing. I think this unit was a great choice overall!

We have enjoyed escaping to Maui from the Midwest for over 20 years. This may be our favorite place to stay. The CA manager has been great to work with and communicated promptly. Onsite staff is very helpful. Minor issues with parking lot noise AMs but it’s all after sunrise. Plenty of boards and snorkel equipment for ocean fun on beautiful Napili beach. Book it and enjoy😎🌴🌈

Reviewer Comments: Studio unit was spacious and totally remodeled, kitchen and bathroom updated with double bathroom sinks and ‘rain’ type shower.Beach view as pictured on VRBO access page. Tradewinds, surf and crescent sandy beach just below your lanai....can’t be beat!Epic did a fine job as property management. They were always available providing initial information and reservation setup. Unit was immaculate on our arrival. Picture perfect vacation!

We love staying at Napili Shores for the low key atmosphere and having the two restaurants on the premises is great. The condo unit has a nice location to the pool and the barbeque area. The unit was clean and had just about everything you needed. The air conditioner in the bedroom we didn't use much because it was so loud. We would turn it on before going to bed to cool the room down then turned it off.

The location of this unit is fantastic. Direct views of the ocean. Short walk to the beach but no beach front. We loved this because we didn’t have people just outside our door. We would most definitely go back to this rental unit.

Watching whales on the lanai was great. Location was wonderful. Interior is okay. Could use a few more towels and kitchen amenities (blender, more gadgets, etc) and I wish the AC went a few degrees cooler. Bed was comfy. The host was pleasant to email with. The housekeeper never showed up despite texting a few times but in the wake of the recent tragedy on Maui we didn't worry about it.

A beautiful condo in an amazing location. The condo has everything we needed. We especially loved the patio and the proximity to both pools. The grounds are amazing - lush and tropical. We adores the sunsets and the whale watching in the evening. I loved the way the place was decorated and we would rebook this condo again in an instant for our next trip to Maui. ❤️

This little studio at Napili Shores made our recent visit to Maui such a memorable experience. It had everything we needed...kitchen, ground floor lanai, comfortable bed and most importantly, an ocean view and short walk to the beach. The studio was spotless and well appointed. We really appreciated having the Tommy Bahama beach chairs and cooler for our trips to the beach. Kitchen was also well quipped, however we didn't cook much as we usually ordered from the Gazebo restaurant which is literally a one minute walk away (order the Fried Rice Platter...it's legendary). The hosts from Epic Realty were also fantastic. We had a bit of an issue with the shower and it was taken care of right away. Their communication and kindness was very much appreciated. Do not hesitate to book this lovely studio. You won't be disappointed.

This place was perfect for my husband and I. I dont like crowds or typical tourist locations. This was a smaller resort with just the right amount of ammenities ... small grocery store 1/2 mile down the road, several nice local resturants, coffee shop, places to rent equipent if needed, and a very short walk to Napili Bay, 2 pools and hot tub. Loved it!

We have stayed in Maui several times and this was our second time in Napili Bay, but first at Napili Shores. The property is older but well maintained. The unit itself felt modern considering the overall age of the property. There is regular landscaping and pool cleaning. The view of the ocean from the pool/Gazebo restaurant is beautiful and we saw whales on multiple occasions. The unit has all the necessary basics and when we asked for additional towels, they were provided. The host was very helpful throughout the entire process and accomodated a date change for us. Unfortunately during our entire stay there was a propane shortage at the resort which meant that the BBQs were unavailable and the heated pool and hot tub were not functional. I mentioned it to the host and she was very understanding and even offered us compensation for the inconvenience. There were beach chairs and a beach umbrella, which came in handy. We enjoyed our stay and would love to go back!

This condo is very nicely updated inside and is in an excellent location on the end of the A building - it has proximity to the pool and to the gazebo restaurant and is also a short distance to the parking and the beach. the beach does have 2 short sets of stairs but I was able to carry her walker up and down the stairs and she used the handrail to be able to enjoy the beach a bit . The gorgeous beach is steep but not too crowded . Great View of water / private lanai . We also appreciated the grab bars in the bathroom near toilet and shower was easy in and out for her . Only thing that would have been better was if we had brought her handicap parking permit as the spaces right by the condo tended to fill up in evening but I was able to pull up and get her in and out of the car for a nice short walk to condo front door and then park . I love this area of Maui with views out to Molokai and whales right out front . Close to sea house for dinner and gazebo for breakfast and lunch . Perfect pool and again good pool stairs with nice handrail for her to get in and out . Ac worked great and kitchen was nicely equipped . Thank you so much - it was really a relief to have an accessible safe bathroom for my mom!!
