This was our second stay at Napili Shores. The first was probably 8 years ago, in an oceanview one bedroom with at least one keiki. This was Mr and Mrs in an oceanfront studio, ground floor, building I, unit 174. A giant mirror in the kitchen held full views of the ocean and the sliding glass door opened onto a lanai with twenty feet of lawn to the trail and rocky shoreline below. The two ceiling fans were much needed, as this was a hotter-than-usual week on Maui. Our mission was to snorkel a great deal and this we did. In and out of the unit several times a day on snorkeling expeditions. Walk to Napili Bay, drive to the rest. We ate at the Gazebo: in line at 7:15, did not make the first seating when it opened at 7:30, but by 8:05 were at the best table in the room since the couple there finished their pancakes and moved on.
The grounds at Napili Shores are expansive and beautiful. The grills are kept clean and ready for use. We don't have much use for swimming pools since we are in the ocean several hours a day, but they both looked clean and attractive. There are showers to clean off sand at the gate next to the beach access.
We rented beach chairs for the week at the on-site shop. We always hope that the unit we rent will have beach chairs, but that is most often not the case. Our unit was well equipped with kitchenware. Our only complaint was that with the floodlight mounted on a palm tree in front of our lanai and the 'porch light' right outside our door, we had bright lights in stereo all night, which is not ideal. We wanted the curtains open for the breeze and the door to the condo has glass louvres above it, so there was no way to block the bright porch light.
Overall, Napili Shores is outstanding in its category, with great staff, beautiful grounds, attractive units and excellent location in an older-style Hawaiian setting.
