The gorgeous oceanfront paradise of Papakea expands over 13 acres of fish-filled lagoons, quaint bridges, beautiful lawns and colorful tropical landscaping. The exquisite burl furniture adds elegance which is rare in a Maui condo. As you lie in your studio's luxuriously comfortable pillow-top king-sized bed, nestled behind a fish pond and sprinkling waterfall, the tall foliage makes you feel you are the only ones on the island. Yet you can relax on your lanai and still see the ocean beyond the beautiful swimming pool.
The first thing you notice about the kitchen, in addition to all the latest appliances, is the large cream stone Bali bowl which not only serves as a very effective kitchen sink, but a wonderful conversation piece that contrasts with the deep green granite counters. Papakea C-107 provides great luxury at an affordable price. For more pictures or info, please go to the bottom of this page to click on the link to our personal website or the youtube link for a video of the unit and property.
With the gorgeous ocean beaches and beachfront restaurants only a short walk from your door, you may instead choose to play miniature golf on one of the two professionally landscaped putting greens, play on one of the two oceanfront shuffleboard courts, play tennis on the lighted court, snorkel and take pictures of colorful fish right off the beach, or take a dip into one of the two beautiful pools or hot tubs. Or you may want to take either a free swimmercize or yoga class or make some new friends in the round-robin tennis tournaments!
You can drive a couple of miles to a choice of championship golf courses - Kapalua or Kaanapali - or take a ferry to the island of Lanai for the Challenge of Manele. Your choice of water activities is endless. It's hard work having so much fun, so you may want to relax in one of Papakea's lawn chairs to enjoy the amazing sunset at the water's edge before making the difficult decision of which of the many first-class restaurants you will choose. Two of Maui's restaurants, Lahaina Grill and Mama's Fish House, were just named in the top 25 restaurants in the U.S.
At the end of the day, sink into your luxurious bed, (guest after guest claims it is the most comfortable they have every slept in), pull out the room copy of Maui Revealed and plan your next day in Paradise!

We r still here chilling so I decided to write this now. This property is all it was advertised as. Sue provided all the info we needed to make this a hassle free 30th anniversary vacation. We did not want to do any thinking and we did not have to because all the bases are covered. The condo feels like home and has everything you need. It is very close to all the high rise vacation resorts but does not feel like that at all. The unit is right next to the koi pond so the sound of the water fall made naps and sleeping very peacefully. We did some pretty cool things while here. We zip lined down a 1/2 mile line, snorkel at a volcanic reef, attended a luau and drove from west to east in the narrowest, scariest road we have ever been on. The travel book said it was one lane and that is the absolute truth. It is one lane on sheer mountain cliffs but we survived. All in all you cannot beat the location, value and comfort if this condo. A vacation we will remember for a very long time. ALOHA
My husband and I stayed in a Papakea studio. It was perfect: lots of space in the room, the kitchenette was perfect for our stay and the patio was a great place to relax, read, have a glass of wine and enjoy the view. And the best part: we were so close to Black Rock, Ka'anapali and down the road, great restaurants, places to run in the morning etc. You cannot find a better place, tucked away from the crowds at Ka'anapali, but close enough to enjoy all that this part of Maui has to offer.
We had a wonderful time on our honeymoon! The resort was great, and everything we did was an easy drive away. Snorkeling at Molokai was definitely the highlight of the trip. There were so many fish, and a very friendly sea turtle. We loved swimming in the ocean, and having fresh fruit for breakfast on the lanai every morning. This was truly a week to remember. We don’t want to leave!

The quality of the furniture and attention to detail set this unit apart from many others. Easy access first floor unit with a Koi pond outside next to the patio and less than 100 yards to the beach make this one of our favorite places to stay.
I enjoyed both of my stays very much and will most certainly check first for availability for my next stay. The condo is very clean, comfortable, and in a safe area. The grounds are kept up extremely well, and I love the pond just outside the sliding door. A quick walk past the pool and into the ocean for a warm swim. Awesome!
We found this unit to be PERFECT for our stay in Maui - in fact, we have stayed in this unit on two seperate occasions. The king size bed is so very comfortable! The location is great! The condo was very clean! We would not hesitate to stay again at this unit, but we have now purchased a condo of our own as we love Maui!
Papakea is just minutes away from both Whalers Village and Lahaina, where you can shop, enjoy meals at first-class restaurants, or just go out for a night on the town. Parking immediately behind C107 is a great convenience.
The resort is located near the uncrowded northern end of top rated Ka'anapali Beach with four championship golf courses nearby. There is great snorkeling right in front of the resort, two pools with spa tubs, two putting greens, a lighted tennis court, and a dozen grills set within 13 acres of tropical splendor dotted with koi ponds. A bridge leads to a property with an oceanfront cafe and a children's camp. Yoga, pilates and swim workouts are complimentary and surfing classes are available for a surcharge.
The lush waterfall with craggy rocks, moss, and palms immediately outside your glass sliding door, explodes on your wall of mirrors which brings this lovely tropical garden view inside in a dramatic way. The tropical splendor outside your unit beckons you to explore. Take a stroll across your lanai to the edge of the koi pond in front of your unit. Stand on the little bridge and watch the calming motion of the many different colored koi in the pond. Now look out over the grounds of Papakea and enjoy the manicured grounds the colored flower beds, the putting greens, and coconut palms.
Walk over to the Molokai pool tiled to appear as if you are swimming with beautiful fish. Take a dip or relax in the hot tub or sauna. Papakea offers swimmercize lessons three mornings a week in addition to yoga lessons. Or you can check out shuffleboard or putting equipment from the Front Desk or snorkel or play in the ocean waves roaring right beside you. You can barbecue and picnic by the pool while you enjoy the never-ending waves that roll into Papakea's beach.
