Our cute studio apartment at the wonderful Papakea Resort is right on the ocean, a mere 30 feet to the water from your lanai. It's in the 'A' building at Papakea in the perfect situation, - close to parking, super close to the beach, the pool, not on the ground floor so more private, far away from the elevator, and up just one flight of stairs, so easy and convenient. We think 'A' is the best - the perfect combination of a direct ocean front condo in a very desirable resort.
Our studio apartment has an easy-to-use queen size murphy bed to allow for more living space during the day, an A/C to take the edge off on hot days, a full kitchen, and a bath with separate vanity and bath/toilet areas. There is dining for 2 inside and outside on the lanai. There are 2 chaise lounges on the lanai as well for relaxing and whale watching. There is free WiFi highspeed Internet in the apartment. All this for a great price!
Papakea Resort itself offers wonderful amenities: 2 pools, 2 spas, a sauna, and beach access with easy swimming and snorkeling on site. Many of my guests enjoy the water aerobics classes held every M, W, F in the pool as well as beach front yoga classes too. Others enjoy tennis, shuffleboard, or honing their skills on one of the 2 18-hole manicured putting greens.
Now there is free high-speed wireless Internet access in every room! The grounds are very handsome, where bamboo groves and tropical plants and flowers abound, where wonderful walkways meander through extensive koi ponds featuring the soothing sounds of waterfalls and water fountains. Everything they offer is free for you to enjoy, so kick back and enjoy it while you’re there!
West Maui really does have it all - great beaches, world-class golfing, wonderful eating options from the best take out on the island to Tiger Woods most favorite restaurant on Maui. There is excellent original theatre and Hawaiian Slack Key performances available year-round. Lahaina town is very historic, with excellent and informative historical walking tours of both Lahaina and Kaanapali. Whale season starts in December and runs through April. Come see our over 3,400 humpback whales that migrate through the channels of Maui annually.
In case you haven't heard, the Papakea Resort is a very gracious low-rise, low-density tropical resort set on 13 oceanfront acres. It is right across the street from and easy walking distance to grocery stores, farmer's markets, great shopping and dining, DVD rentals and a great coffee shop.
Our studio apt. really has everything you need, no matter whether you stay a week or a month! There is an en suite washer/dryer, a dishwasher, all the kitchen gear and lots of great paperbacks to browse. The sunsets from your lanai are fabulous as are the views of the islands of Molokai and Lanai. Watch turtles grazing on the reef while you enjoy a quiet tropical sunset. Or watch whales frolicking right in front of your lanai! I know you will love the comfort and the value pricing afforded by our wonderful direct oceanfront studio apartment in the amenity rich resort that we all know and love - Papakea!
