Napili Real Estate is a hotspot of activity because of the history of this place. Napili at one time was a town that has very distinct boundaries. As the development of the 1980s built up the neighboring communities of Kapalua and Kahana it has become a bit difficult to clearly see where the boundaries are because it has been essentially connected to the adjacent towns by development. The shoreline of Napili is something special. A destination for snorkelers, divers, surfers, and fisherman the coastlines and reefs are swarming with recreational potential.
“Napili is a completely different climate than what you will find in Lahaina. The temperatures are cooler, there is more annual rainfall, many people really enjoy what Napili has to offer.”
– Jeremy Stice, Realtor (B)
