Why Wendy Kennedy chose Napili
Napili Bay Beach is one of the best beaches in Maui. This complex sits beachfront and you are truly only steps to the sand. If you love the beach and sounds of waves at night, this complex is for you.

First trip to Hawaii
At the suggestion of friends that travel often to Maui, we choose to stay near NapiliBay. We found this room that was just off the beach. The pictures lead us to believe the stairs from the lanai lead directly to the beach but did not. You do have to go down the corridor and stairs outside and through a locked gate to reach the beach but still quite near. The beach chairs, water toys, and cooler made playing on the beach very easy. Visiting in October, we thought we’d have some cooler weather, but we were met with an unusual heat wave and not having air conditioning made the room especially at night unbearable even with the multiple fans in the room and the quite comfortable king size bed. I’d without a doubt say I’d return for this same room in the future but this couple needs a/c!
We are happy that you enjoyed your stay and will return to stay with us again. Sorry to hear that you were impacted by the unusual heat wave. Usually the trade winds will help to cool things off at night, but apparently those were missing during your visit. In order to maintain the old Hawaiian feel, our complex does not allow air conditioning units,. If that ever changes, we will be happy to add an air conditioner! Regarding the beach access, the gate keeps the public from entering our property providing additional security to our condominiums. I have reviewed the pictures and don't see one that might indicate that we have stairs to the beach. I will send you a message to see if there is one that we need to change. None of our units have direct access to the beach. Everyone has to enter/exit through the front and walk down the hallway and/or stairs. We are less than 100 steps to the sand, which is very close by Maui standards.
Thank you for taking time to share your thoughts. We look forward to your next visit!
Another fantastic stay at one of our favorite spots in Maui
Perfect place, good location, comfortable bed.
We look forward to having you back again next year! Thank you for your review!
Wendy's places is just as descripted. My wife and I loved the unit and the location on the property. We stayed at another unit down stairs last year but prefer the upper units. The condo was clean, fully stocked with beach gear and the bed was so comfortable. The fans helped keep us cool in the heat. The only worry we have for future visits is the beach is eroding away and not much sand left at this end of the bay. Not much the owner can do but we loved the complex and will consider this unit again for a our yearly Maui vacation. Thanks again for hosting us.
Thank you for your wonderful review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and understand your concern about the beach. We had several back-to-back King Tides with south swells this summer, which caused more sand than normal to shift toward Napili Kai. It always amazes me how much the sand shifts throughout the year. The recent update I received said that we are getting some of the sand back now that the waves have shifted. Hopefully by the end of the winter, things will be back to normal. It' is something that our Homeowners' Association and Napili Bay Community Association are monitoring closely to determine if action is needed. Don't hesitate to send me a message if you have any questions.
Lovely place. Great location. Will def stay here again!
Thank you, Linda! Hope to see you again soon.

Wendy was a great communicator and provided lots of useful items in her condo. We had a fully stocked kitchen and complete beach accessories. Everything was clean and the location was amazing.
