Alaeloa 30: a serene oceanfront escape in Napili, Maui

Posted by Courtney M. Brown on Monday, January 17th, 2022 at 2:32pm.

New to Market: Alaeloa 30, Napili, Maui

Alaeloa is one of Maui's hidden gems.  Behind the gates, off the Lower Honoapiilani Road, this small community is nestled along the Napili coastline.  With just 42 residences, a mix of free-standing cottages and duplexes, on 13 acres, this oceanfront enclave is reminiscent of the Maui of my childhood...the cottages are a nod to the Plantation Style of architecture, and the seaside pool is surrounded by a mango grove.  Owners have the ability to store kayaks and paddleboards, and the small bay is often home to turtles.  

When I met the owners of Alaeloa 30 and saw it for the first time, my eye was immediately drawn to the view.  The large lanai offers a vantage point that stretches down the coastline to Kapalua, with surf breaks like Little Makaha and Hole in the Head firing in the distance.  Of course, being January, what caught my attention was the whales, which were breaching just a short distance from the lanai.

The owners of Alaeloa 30 have thoughtfully designed the interior, creating a warm inviting space, with floor-to-ceiling windows that bring the dramatic ocean views into focus.  The left side of an oceanfront duplex cottage, the lanai is sheltered from the prevailing tradewinds, providing a calm place for dining, reading, or taking in the spectacular sunsets.

Tiled floors and vaulted ceilings, create a calming, open backdrop for the living spaces.

Nestled along the coast, Alaeloa 30 (second building from left, lanai on the right) is situated directly on the water--the sound of the ocean creates a peaceful backdrop for these charming oceanfront cottages.

The lanai from Alaeloa 30 takes in sweeping views of the West Maui coastline down to the Montage Kapalua Bay. For those that love to cook, the Alaeloa is one of the few condominium complexes that will allow personal BBQs on the lanais.

The living room opens to the beautiful ocean view, and the sheltered lanai, which provides a cool and serene retreat in the afternoons.  The lighting was upgraded, with dimmers to allow you to adjust the light throughout the home.
