Welcome to Papakea! Located between the Kaanapali and Kapalua world-class golf resorts and minutes from shops, museums, restaurants, and galleries in nearby Lahaina and Whalers Village. Papakea is a 13 acre tropical oceanfront resort with the true aloha feeling of Maui.
There are two private pools, two Jacuzzis, direct beachfront access, cabana, three lighted tennis courts, two shuffleboard courts, two 18-hole putting greens, Koi ponds, lush gardens, and 12 outdoor barbecues. The resort also has an Activity Desk. For the sports enthusiast, the golf courses of Kapalua and Kaanapali are nearby, as well as great snorkeling and boogie-boarding. Or take your time walking the miles of soft sand beaches.
This corner groundfloor unit is steps away from the pool and ocean. Explore the grounds, take a dip in the pool or go for a walk on the beach. Whatever your pleasure!

First... I was a little hesitant to rent this unit after reading previous reviews. However... we had a great stay and the view from the lanai was AMAZING!! Whale season would be an absolute perfect time to watch the whales pass between Maui and Molokai. The unit is not "fancy" but completely adequate for a long visit. My father said the sofa sleeper was very comfortable. The Bedroom has a comfortable king bed but no air conditioning... not required.... the breeze thru the unit was perfect for a comfortable night sleep in July. The kitchen offers the minimums for cooking but still adequate for basic cooking and you have the grills by the pool. Papakea is a great property and they have every island tour/event/outing available at the front desk as well as the next door "sister property" has SCUBA intro in the pool every morning and walk out diving that was great. The two pools and hot tubs were very nice and a score for my 13 year old son. The ocean is completely accessible for all ages and the reef protects the first 30 yards for some safe and sightful snorkeling. (Was told at times of the year the sand can be washed away making water access a little difficult. The resort is under renovation and the noise is loud thru the day - recommend checking the web site for Papakea and identifying where the construction is and if you feel it will interrupt your relaxation for your stay. It was loud but only during the weekdays and quiet by dinner time. There are plenty of places in walking distance to eat and a grocery store and farmers market is close as well. There are some GREAT beaches within 10-20 minute drive along the coast. Honolua Bay has rocky access but offers the best snorkeling in the area. I would not hesitate to book this unit again!
We have stayed in this unit 3 times over last four years, Always clean and comfortable, Last year unit was up dated, new refrigerator, still hard bed, good for my back. Unit is not the Reitz But very relaxing with a Million Dollar View. We loved the farmers mkt. across street. Loved Wine & Dinner on the lania. We'll be back in Jan 2014. Thanks for the Good Times.

This unit is of need of a major renovation. The bathroom door not only had paint peeling but the door was delaminating, one lampshade in the living room fell of it's frame since the top was so badly rotten, the remainder of the lamps and furnishings are from the 70's. The knives in the kitchen were so dull we couldn't cut meat or bread except by tearing it. The bed was too tall for my wife to get into unless she used the step ladder we found in the unit, the sheets if tucked in would only come up to your lower chest, the pillows were a joke. When you opened the dishwasher you had to catch the bottom rack before it fell out. There is parking for all units, but since it is not assigned, if you go out during the day, you will need to get back before 6:30 if you want to park anywhere close to this building. The views from the lanai are great, but there is NO beach and the access into the water is dangerous. This unit would never be considered by us again.
Papakea is a great place to stay, and the oceanfront units (buildings A, F & L) have unbeatable views. We like the location and the grounds are impeccably maintained. We have stayed in two different 'Building A' 1-bedroom units, and this unit was far inferior to the first one. NEGATIVES: The bed was really hard, the blanket was 2 sizes too small, and there were no down pillows. (I did not have one good night's sleep out of 7 nights.) The kitchen was really disappointing and not very well stocked. (We were shocked the first morning when there was no salt and pepper for our scrambled eggs!) The cabinets were old, dirty and smelly, and the refrigerator was rusted (with no ice maker as advertised). There is no lighting above or near the table, which makes activities at night a challenge. Also, the air conditioner is in need of repair. We were here in January, and for the most part did not really need air conditioning, but on 2 occasions did turn it on in the afternoon for a few hours to no avail. POSITIVES: The water pressure was excellent in the shower. The outdoor furniture is very nice, and the lanai is fabulous. TIPS: The deli across the street (Okazuya) has great food; we got take-out 3 times and ate on the lanai. Bring your binoculars during whale season (Dec. through April). They are spectacular!!
