We booked through Maui Beachfront Rentals and I think the rate was very good. It seems like most of these places get snatched up quickly for this time of year because we were limited in what we had to choose from booking 3-4 months in advance. We met a very nice couple who was staying for a month, right over the ocean for the same price we were paying up by the lobby-good for them for planning ahead!
The unit itself (#236) it was clean and had everything it reported it would have. The decor is fine, what you would expect from a rental condo. It had a view of the koi pond and garden and a little peek of the ocean to the left. We knew we were getting a garden view. There were a few extras we hadn't expected that were nice such as a hair dryer, a noodle for the pool/ocean, two boogie boards, a foam ice chest and one beach chair. The could have provided more bath towels-we brought our own beach towels.
The bedroom of this unit is basically over the parking lot and walkway of the second floor of the building and this place is loud at night.
The Outrigger Napili Shores is opposite a neighborhood and cars were flying down the road all night. Everytime someone parked and locked their rental car in the lot, the alarm horn went off. People were knocking on doors at 4:45 a.m. and those off to the airport early rolling their suitcases down the cement coridor and talking to each other-all of this sounds like it's going on in the bedroom-it is loud. We didn't have really hot weather, but still needed to have the window open and the fan going-but even if the single pane glass slat windows were shut tight-they wouldn't have been effective in blocking out all that noise. It was more quiet in the living room, but then you are sleeping on a fold out couch that wasn't super comfortable. Pick your poison. Bring earplugs and expect noise. It was the worst the first night (a Monday) and calmed down a bit after that.
The other thing about this unit is that if you are sitting on the lanai or on the couch you look directly down into the Fish and Poi restaurant. It didn't really bother us, but it's a little unusual.
The grounds are pretty and well kept with two pools and one HOT hot tub. There are several BBQ's for use near the upper pool and we used them a couple times-that was nice.
The other people who were staying here were super nice and friendly! Lots of grandma/grandpa types some with their families and some with groups of friends, but they were all so very nice to our little girl.
We did not eat at either the Fish and Poi or the Gazebo-everyone was sure lining up every morning for those pancakes though! Was it my imagination or does the whole resort smell a little like syrup? I swear it does! We had a great dinner at the Sea House at the Napili Kai.
The stretch of beach is beautiful and we saw tons of whales. We played in the waves for hours-the water is so pretty and brilliant shades of blue. There are tide pools and big sea turtles too. It's a great little area.
So all that said, I rate the place as a whole as "OK"-but I think in Hawaii, you probably shouldn't expect more than OK for $145/night.
