We spent a week in #19 at Napili Village and loved every minute of it. From the time we drove into the very cute complex, to opening the door to our adorable studio, my husband and I felt totally at home here, and so did our 2 year old daughter. We are well-traveled and though we don’t require anything fancy, I do enjoy a place with a good vibe (can’t think of a better word), and this place has it. Lots of lush foliage, a pretty and sparkling clean pool, a fun little general store with lots of Hawaiian chocolates and other stuff you need (wine, sunblock, etc). Plus, the very short walk to the lovely beach was a great part of our day, my daughter loved the outdoor shower on the walk home every day. At $139 a night, with no hidden fees or mystery taxes, I think this place is the best deal in Maui.
For us the distance to Lahaina was no big deal. We made the trip into “town” every day to go to Safeway or Starbuck’s, or just to get out and see other places, and it was a fun, easy drive. I never noticed much traffic. It was always great to get back to Napili and our own lovely little beach.
I totally recommend this place to budget-conscious travelers who want something fun and homey. The owner/managers are helpful but unobtrusive, and you have a lot of privacy. We made our own coffee and the Friday breakfast was just okay (pastries from the local market) but a nice way to chat with the other guests. We met a lot of nice people, many of whom were return guests, and even condo owners.
