The beach-adjacent Napili Point Resort offers condo-style accommodations. The rooms offer large kitchenettes, sitting areas, separate bedrooms and even upstairs lofts. The condos can comfortably sleep larger families with plenty of elbowroom to spare. The units offer in-room laundry services as well. The resort has two onsite swimming pools, outdoor seating and barbecues. From your own lanai, you can see humpback whales swimming in the ocean during the winter and early spring months. There are weekly family activities on the grounds and plenty of water sports to enjoy just steps away.
Guests can enjoy the onsite restaurant and activities, and the grounds are close to several restaurants, hiking and biking trails and tours. The small bay nearby provides the perfect area for snorkeling.

We ended up here because our usual rental had been already been booked. Although this isn't as big as our typical unit, we loved it! This unit is on the front row, but overlooking the Honokeanna Bay, not full oceanfront. Our unit had a giant bathroom, and an ample kitchen - plenty for 2 - and all updated. We were able to walk out onto the lawn and watch the sunset (beach chairs came with our unit). We were also close to one of the pools, and no, it wasn't noisy.
It's a short walk to Napili Bay beach; if you aren't comfortable going along the rocky trail, you can take the street. It's also on a bay that seems to be very popular with the turtles, and there's a section of the cove where you can scamper down the rock and get right down in the water with them. So cool! The parking is free and unassigned, and our unit came with daily housekeeping. All of the staff was super nice and the grounds are very well maintained. We hit the jackpot with this rental and would stay again.
Napili Resort is ideally located on a quiet cove. All units have oceanfront views. Throughout the day you can stand on your balcony and see so many turtles popping their heads out of the water. There are 2 small swimming pools and a few public grills. There’s a path along the ocean that will take you directly to Napili beach. Caution - the walk may be difficult for some. The units really vary based on the owner. Our unit was a two bedroom (one was a loft) two bathroom. Unit needs some TLC and a good cleaning. The sun beats down in the unit making the loft especially hot and stuffy. Wish there was AC in the unit. Some units have AC. I bought a box fan at Walmart to cool down the loft.
