New Studio Listing at the Puna Building of the Napili Kai Beach Resort
A rare offering at the Napili Kai Beach Resort in Napili, Maui has just come on the market with the offering of the studio Unit #229 at the Puna Point II building for $875,000. This is one of the most desirable properties in all of Napili because it sits right out on the point separating Napili Bay and Kapalua Bay with huge views of both Molokai and Lanai as well as year-round sunset views.

Napili Kai Beach Resort – The Most Desirable Real Estate in Napili
Above is a video of Napili Lani #332 at the Napili Kai Beach Resort that I sold last year for $975,000. I have included it here to give you a feel for the complex and the Napili and Kapalua area.
The interior and exterior of the Puna buildings were remodeled in 2012/2013 and are in immaculate condition with all new lighting, furniture, artwork, stainless appliances, cabinetry, granite, tile work, and walk-in showers
The Value of Puna Point #229 at $875,000
I know that some will find the price tag of close to $900k for a studio staggering, but I do believe that due to the rarity of this offering, its outstanding location, and its super level of finish that the property will close near its current asking price.
The Location: Napili Bay
Puna II is one of the buildings at the Napili Kai Beach Resort, which was constructed in 1972 directly abutting the northern end of Napili Bay. This is the last resort before one crosses the boundary to all that the Kapalua resort offers. The Seahouse Restaurant, located within the resort, is an open-air restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a truly beachfront setting that is just breathtaking.
Taken from the oceanfront portion of Napili Kai, one can see why Napili Bay is one of the most pristine and popular beaches in all of West Maui. (The building on the left is the aforementioned Seahouse Restaurant.) Napili Bay is quite protected from the elements, so even if it is windy at many other West Maui beaches, this particular bay is likely to be calm, and as such, is a popular destination for lounging, swimming, snorkeling, and stand-up paddling.
Napili Kai Beach Resort Amenities
Enjoy the 18-hole putting green at Napili Kai with your little ones, or before heading to the nearby Kapalua Plantation and Bay Golf Courses. There are 4 pools within the Napili Kai Beach Resort.

Oceanfront Walking/Running Trails Near Napili Kai
The start of the Kapalua Coastal Trail is a couple hundred feet from Napili Lani and runs along Kapalua Bay (above video and below pic), past the Ritz Carlton Resort, through a nature preserve overlooking Oneloa Bay, and then down the hill toward Flemming’s Beach.
I recently enjoyed the oceanfront trail that fronts the Napili Kai Resort; looking directly out toward the pristine turquoise water one can see turtles near the shore, pods of whales not too far off, stand-up paddlers getting some exercise, sailboats like the Teralani escorting snorkelers, and the stunning outlines of Lana’i and Moloka’i miles out to see. I have detailed these trails and other points of interest in a previous post: Fun Things to Do on a Sunday in Maui.

Restaurants in Close Proximity to Napili Kai
Merriman’s at Kapalua is literally a 5 minute walk from Napili Kai and I would highly recommend sitting out on their outer lanai, which sits right on a rocky point overlooking Kapalua Bay – the scenery is stunning, and the food and drink are quite nice as well. Pineapple Grill is more like a 15 minute walk or a short drive from Napili Kai – they have great food and regular local entertainment.

Championship Level Golf Courses Near Napili Kai
Featured here is a shot from the scenic Bay Course at the Kapalua Golf Course with the Pineapple Hill subdivision and West Maui mountains in the background. The Bay Course is one of the most beautiful courses in the entire state and is my personal favorite of Maui’s 17 courses.
Both of the courses in Kapalua possess stunning natural beauty, are very challenging, and are just a couple minutes away from Napili Kai.
