Beautiful oceanfront condo with 3 bedrooms (including loft) and 3 bathrooms. Our 2010 remodel includes air conditioning in the living room and all three bedrooms (all individually controlled). New wall to wall sliding doors to the lanai open extra wide to let in the gorgeous views of the ocean, Molokai & Lanai, whales (in season), kite surfers and the most dazzling sunsets on earth. All are yours as you relax on your own lanai. Even the occasional wedding on the beach completes this utopian setting.
This top floor (4th floor) has limestone floors, carpeting in bedrooms, granite counter tops in bathrooms and kitchen, air conditioning, ceiling fans, and ipod docking stations in every bedroom and living room. The living room & master bedroom also includes a TV and DVD/VCR/CD player. Bring your own movies or visit the video store across the street.
Your fully equipped kitchen gives you the flexibility to enjoy coffee or cocktails on your lanai, a quick bite of lunch in between lounging at one of the two pools or on the oceanside lawn, or enjoying a dinner you prepare yourself at one of the gas barbeques circling the pools. Not into cooking? You are a short walk away form two restaurants or just minutes from Whalers Village on Kaanapali Beach or historic Lahaina Town.
Need some variety – well there’s lighted tennis courts, two putting greens, two shuffle boards, two hot tubs or just a walk through the gardens and koi ponds on this thirteen acres of paradise. Need a little more activity? You are minutes away from world class golf courses at Kaanapali Beach or Kapalua (where the Hyundai Open is held). Hiking in Iao Valley or on Haleakala, Maui’s highest peak. Don’t forget about the snorkeling, scuba diving and surfing. For a real treat, consider a leisurely all day drive to Hanna. Need to stay in touch with family and friends (or not), enjoy free wireless internet service.
Master Suite - on the main floor - has a king size bed, TV and VCR/DVD player and it’s own private bathroom with walk-in shower for two. Bathroom has a built in lit makeup/shaving mirror and hairdryer.
Second bedroom is also on the main floor and has a queen size bed.
The second bathroom is also on the main floor and has a walk-in shower.
Third bedroom in the loft with a queen size bed has it’s own bathroom, overlooks the living room and has a view of the ocean.
We even provide beach towels! – one less thing to pack.
Super comfortable with a killer view. The condo is well equipped with A/C in each room. This is perfect because the only downside of oceanfront is the noise from the surf when the doors are open. Joe was great to deal with and provided helpful info to plan our Maui stay.
Papakea is a great value and my friends and I have stayed there two years now in different VRBO condos. This unit has excellent AC which is really nice to sleep. Being this close to the ocean was beautiful. There were whales viewable from the deck multiple times a day.
Joe was super easy to work with and provided lots of helpful info to have an awesome time on Maui.
We had one week of great weather, activities and fun in the sun!! The view of this condo is one of the best. Since we were at the condo during whale season, it was amazing to see the whales playing in the ocean from the lanai. Boss Frogs was an excellent place to rent any type of gear for water activities.... walking distance from the condo. Dukes (restaurant) a short walk was also a great place to eat. Spent most of our days by the pool laying in the sun or BBQing. We had 6 adults with us and a great place to stay since everyone had their own personal space, bedroom and bathroom. Only found 2 beach towels in the unit, and wish there had been more paper products like tin foil or plastic wrap. We hope to be back again :)
The condo is in an excellent location. Within waking distance are great restaurants, a supermarket, and snorkel rental shops. There is no beach at the resort but you only need to walk a few minutes to get to the beach. We enjoyed many barbecues by the pool. Our favourite thing about the unit is the ocean view. We enjoyed breakfast on the lanai every morning. My 6 month old loved to fall asleep to the sound of the ocean. Unfortunately, I cannot give the condo 5 stars due to a few issues we had. I requested a pack and play for my baby and there was not one in the unit when we arrived. As we arrived past midnight we put baby to sleep on our bed and none of us slept well the first night. We called the caretaker the next day and the pack and play was delivered but not without a second phone call late in the day. I inspected it and there were tiny little bugs crawling all over it. I called the caretaker back and he said he would disinfect it. After he "cleaned" it the bugs were still there. We ended up cleaning it ourselves. Baby could not sleep in the bed that night as it was wet. Needless to say, we didn't sleep well for a second night. During our stay we saw two cockroaches in the unit. We took out the garbage daily but somehow they got in. While the unit is well stocked with towels, beach chairs, and kitchen supplies we wished they had tea towels, tissues, more toilet paper and more paper towels. We ended up buying a few things and leaving them in the unit for the next guests. Also, we were charged a $15/ day resort fee by the resort which was an unexpected charge.
Lots of great things about the unit: Lots of space, and doors to the lanai open up to be part of the living room to make it feel even bigger. View from the balcony is beautiful, and could see rainbows over the ocean. The whole property at Papakea is well-maintained with a nice heated pool and clean BBQs.
We hit a few snags at check-in where they had no record of us coming that day and charged us for a resort fee. We were also missing beach towels (as advertised). But we called up the owner and these were taken care of promptly.
We also saw some dirty stained towels left over from the previous guests (yuck!) in the master bathroom. But other than that the rest of the unit (kitchen, etc) was clean overall. We left a nice bottle of white wine in the wine fridge for the next guests to enjoy. :) Maybe they will continue the trend to pay that forward to future guests to enjoy too.
We would highly recommend this unit for your family vacation Our family of 6 (4 adult children) loved this unit. The pictures don't do it justice. There was plenty of room for all of us. We loved the lanai doors opening wide to let the ocean breeze in. The kitchen was well equipped. It was great that the condo is within walking distance to rentals, restaurants and grocery. The pool and BBQ areas are clean. We used the BBQ quite a bit. The lanai was great to relax and enjoy the sunsets. Joe was wonderful with his recommendations and extremely helpful with any questions. The concierge was wonderful with their recommendations for entertainment and got us deals on para-sailing and Luau. We would stay here again!! Great vacation spot!
