Aloha, the Napili Hale is a perfect vacation house located in Northwest Maui. It boasts 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, and 2200 sq/ft of living space. Napili Hale is a casual Hawaiian plantation-style house located across the street from Napili Bay, a tranquil, leeward bay with a white sand beach. Sunsets from Napili Bay are surreal with both Lana‘i and Moloka‘i off on the horizon. Packing for your trip to the Napili Plantation home is easy, as we provide our guests: iron, ironing board, hairdryers in the bathrooms, towels and linens, beach towels, and a starter supply including paper products, trash bags, laundry and dish detergents, soaps and hand soap, shampoo, conditioner. There are three additional beaches within walking distance (within a mile) north of the house; Kapalua Bay, Onelo...Aloha, the Napili Hale is a perfect vacation house located in Northwest Maui.

There are three additional beaches within walking distance (within a mile) north of the house; Kapalua Bay, Oneloa Bay (Ironwoods), and Honokahua Bay (Fleming Beach Park, fronting the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua). All of these beaches are spectacular and beautiful and the Kapalua Coastal Trail connects them all! The Coastal Trail makes for an amazing walk or run any time of day! This trail passes some of Maui’s most pristine sand dune ecosystems as well as an ‘U‘au (Hawaiian dark-rumped petrel) sanctuary at Hawea Point. This trail also connects to the Village Walking Trails and the Honolua Ridge and Maunalei Arboretum Trail systems are nearby. Please inquire about cultural tours of Maui. If you choose to walk along the Lower Road to Kapalua Drive, you will pass several world-class restaurants; the Seahouse Restaurant at the Napili Kai Hotel, Merriman’s Kapalua, The Pineapple Grill and the Plantation House, just to name a few. There are a variety of activities that you can enjoy in walking distance that include swimming, snorkeling, hiking, boating, tennis, golf and surfing. Ka‘anapali is 5.8 miles south and Lahaina Town is 9.4 miles south. There you can enjoy more beaches, shopping, dining and lots of fun activities and entertainment. There are picnic table in the large yard and a herb garden guests can use. Napili Hale is a wonderful place to experience kama‘aina living and enjoy time with your family and friends! My home is legally permitted and owner managed. County of Maui Vacation Rental Permit Number: STWM 2017/0006 Some Area History: This property gives travelers the opportunity to experience kama'aina (local Hawaiian) island living rather than hotel/resort living. I lived here with my own family for many years before moving and vacation renting it. This property has been in my family for over 5 generations. Like most Hawaiian plantation-style houses, it is modest and simple. Much time is spent outdoors at the beach and therefore the house is designed and decorated to accommodate this lifestyle. Over the years, the property has become surrounded by condominium complexes and hotels which offer additional amenities such as restaurants, golfing and tennis. Prior to its resort development, Napili was a fishing and ranching area. The uniqueness of the house and property comes with its location and history. This residential neighborhood was once considered a very remote area of Maui where a handful of Hawaiian fishing families lived. In more recent historic times it was surrounded by a multitude of orchards that Honolua Ranch manager David T. Fleming planted in an effort to diversify Ranching operations (Honolua Ranch Co.). The historic Honolua Ranch headquarters were located up Office Road, by the Ritz Carlton Hotel. The Seahouse restaurant, across the street at the Napili Kai Resort, was originally the Managers Club for the Honolua Ranch at a time prior to hotel/resort development along Napili Bay. During that time, my great-great-Aunt Lahela lived in a house right where the Napili house is today. There were few other homes around. The few that were nearby were other Hawaiian families and the Ranch managers. When pineapple came to the area, there were pineapple plantation camps located along what is now Office Road, where the Ritz Carlton is. The plantation camps were generally organized by ethnicity, with individuals and families of Hawaiians, Chinese, and Japanese ancestry living in separate 'camps'. Those who lived at these camps were employees of Honolua Ranch and then D.T. Fleming's plantation/orchards, and later, Maui Land and Pineapple Co.. Napili became a vacation destination in the 1960's, built up by Canadian developers. Most the condominiums and hotels you see here today were built around that time. The Napili house property and the pocket of residential homes immediately surrounding it are some of the last vestiges of the Hawaiian community that was present prior to the Honolua Ranch era and prior to the areas transformation into a vacation destination. Today the immediate neighborhood represents three generations of descendants of the Medeiros, Pali and Wahinehookai families. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: STRW 2017/0006More
