Overview

Kaanapali Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

You've found the PERFECT place for honeymoons, anniversaries, family reunions and memorable vacations. Our premium oceanfront condo (#L-407)offers a million-dollar view in a private and romantic setting and a front row seat to all the action during whale-watching season.

The Papakea Oceanfront Resort, a hidden Hawaiian gem, is a tropical oasis situated on 13 sprawling acres of lush & beautifully manicured grounds in upscale West Maui with stunning views of Lanai and Molokai Islands. The Papakea is in the quiet neighborhood of Honokawai. It's conveniently located between the Kaanapali and Kapalua world-class golf resorts and is only minutes from Lahaina's shopping, restaurants, and nightlife.

Our condo, in the 'L' building, is only 50 steps from the water's edge, so close you can hear the surf inside! Directly in front of our building is direct access to world-famous Kaanapali Beach. To the south you can stroll miles along the white, sandy beach toward Black Rock, stopping along the way for a swim or some awesome snorkeling.

Our lanai faces the ocean directly and provides unobstructed 180 degree views of gorgeous morning sunrises, enchanting daytime rainbows over the ocean, spectacular nightly sunsets, and incredible shows during whale watching season. (For a Virtual Tour of this unit, visit our website link below.)

Our comfortable home-away-from-home includes remodeled kitchen & bath, upgraded tile flooring, designer paint colors, island-style furnishings and flat-screen TV's. Sleeps four to five with a king-size bed in the master, a queen-size bed in the spacious and private loft, a queen-size sofa sleeper in the living room, and one bathroom. We're on the top/4th floor and have soaring 18' cathedral ceilings lending an open and airy feeling. We don't have central air but do have one window a/c unit. Personally we rarely use it because with windows and lanai door open, you'll catch fantastic trade-wind breezes blowing through the unit. Ceiling fans also in all rooms.

Parking and WIFI are FREE. Hawaii Tax ID #W30192078-01.

About Mimi Donohue

I fell in love with Maui on my first visit in 1989. Jim and I were married on the grounds of the Papakea in 1997. In 2002, we had the opportunity to purchase this oceanfront, top floor unit that looks down on the exact spot we tied the knot! The Papakea has always been very special to us and we love sharing it with family, friends, and fellow travelers who want to enjoy a slice of paradise, if only for a while!

Mimi Donohue purchased this condo in 2002

Why Mimi Donohue chose Kaanapali

The Papakea is on the west side of the island right on the West Maui Channel where the humpback whales make their annual migration. Our lanai is a front row seat to all the action! The islands of Lanai and Molokai, across the channel, offer stunning views in the daytime and gorgeous sunsets every night. And, with the West Maui mountains directly behind the Papakea, we always have wonderful breezes and frequent rainbows, after brief afternoon showers. It's enchanting!

What makes this condo unique

The Papakea offers all the amenities you'd expect at a resort but maintains a relaxed and authentic Hawaiian feel where guests can feel at home. We LOVE using the grills and enjoying a sunset dinner from our own lanai! Although Papakea has it's own beach area, it's also conveniently located to famous beaches such as Kapalua Bay, Napili Bay, and Dig-Me Beach. Everything you need is close by...shopping, dining, golf, excursions, you name it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fabulous time on Maui and in your condo. Our first few days a couple of us had a really bad cold/flu and weren't able to explore the island. It was so nice to have the pool, shuffleboard and miniature golf so easy to access. Our three children really enjoyed themselves. My husband and I were able to get out there as well. :) If we make it back to Maui again, we would definitely consider staying at your condo again.



Warm regards.

Second Visit as Wonderful as the First!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 11 glorious days at Jim and Mimi’s condo. We last visited two years ago. The condo is very well equipped and impeccably clean. It’s so quiet and peaceful which provides for a very relaxing getaway. We watched whales playing from the beautiful oceanfront lanai. We enjoyed fresh banana bread and pineapple each morning and beautiful sunsets each evening. The process of renting was seamless and well organized. We can’t wait to visit again as soon as possible. Mimi and Jim – Thanks for another fabulous vacation!

We had an awesome time. We love staying at the Papakea, the views are great with an ocean front. Very guite and peaceful. Great little breakfast place across the street and grocery store is nice and close. Nice pool and hot tub in the evening. So relaxing.

Fantastic Vacation Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We visited Maui with our three children in August. It was a dream vacation. The location and amenities of the property were outstanding! The condo is waterfront with an amazing view of other islands. We watched sea turtles feeding every afternoon off the lanai.

The pool area was close to the unit and perfect for taking a break from the beaches. The pool area had several BBQ grills that we utilized to cook dinner several nights. We LOVED the condo lanai. Since it is a top floor unit, it truly was the best view of all the units at this property. We tried to spend most evenings out on the lanai at the perfect time to coincide with sunset.

The property is centrally located to all of our favorite spots like Kapalua and Napili Bay north of the Papakea as well as shopping/restaurants in Lahaina, south of the condo. Working with the owners was a dream as they were very accommodating. Mimi was incredibly helpful in booking the property and answered all of our questions and more. We highly recommend this property and can't wait to book another vacation here in the future. Thank you for sharing your little piece of paradise with our family!

This location is awesome! It's beachfront meaning it has a wonderful view of the ocean! It's also located near the old Lahaina shopping center which makes it easier to access! Beaches around this location are also amazing with great snorkeling adventures! The only downside is there's only one bathroom and somewhat steep staircase going up to the loft. But if stairs don't bother you, this is the perfect place to stay at!

After having had great e mail correspondence with the Owners when booking, beeing there was one of the best moments in life we ever had. We enjoyed every minute of the day staying in the condo and in Papakea Resort. Everything was completely prepared to have a carefree vacation. We´ll never forget those days. Thank you!

What a wonderful place to stay in Maui!!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo we stayed at for 5 nights was just perfect! So well decorated and felt like a total island experience...loved that we had ROOM to move around instead of being cramped in a boxy hotel room. Kitchen was fully stocked with the dishes and utensils we needed to make our meals and we loved the convenience of having a washer and dryer. Very clean and had such an at-home feel. Grounds were immaculate and accessible. No complaints about any of the experience at Papakea Resorts...PERFECT FOR PARADISE!!!
