Gayle & Charles
My husband and I are Canadians that have been coming to Maui every year since 2007; and every year we love it even more than the year before. We eventually hope to retire here, but until then, this is our little piece of paradise to enjoy on our vacation every year.
We hope our home-away-from-home brings you as much joy as it does us. Please do drop us a line and let us know what we can do to make your stay special.
Gayle Moss purchased this condo in 2012
We chose Papakea for many reasons:
1. Location: Papakea is on the west coast just north of Lahaina, next to Ka'anapali. Like Baby Bear said, 'It's just right!' because it doesn't get the uncomfortable heat of Lahaina or heavy rains of Kapalua. It's perfect!
2. It has so many recreational facilities and is very family friendly, but it's also great for adults who want quiet and privacy with separate pools and hot tubs for kids and adults.
3. The grounds are kept in immaculate condition.
4. We fell in love with it the moment we saw it.
A 13-acre beachfront oasis of relaxation, Papakea Resort features tropical landscaping with Koi ponds and palm trees located throughout, and is approximately 32 miles from Kahului Airport. Papakea offers several recreational facilities, including two 12-hole putting greens, three tennis courts, shuffleboard, beach activities, and two swimming pools with whirlpools. A fitness center is also available. Other amenities include free parking, Weber barbeques, dry cleaning services, wireless Internet access, parking, and an activity desk. Free yoga and aqua-fit classes as well as weekly putting and tennis tournaments are available.
Our condo,which has just been remodeled, has vaulted ceilings that make the unit feel very spacious. The view from our lanai is breathtaking. Everything you could want in a vacation rental is right here. Why go anywhere else?
My husband, myself and our 2 boys aged 21 and 16 years stayed for 4 night's at Papakea D 406 and wished that we could have stayed longer. Everything that you could have wanted in a self contained apartment was there even down to beach mats and putters and golf balls for the putting green in front of our apartment.
We hired a car for the entire stay which is a must as the island is vast and much more convenient to get around the island than rely on day tour companies to pick you pick, which is also an added cost.
Unfortunately due to one child getting car sick we never made it to Hana but did get to the 'Half way to Hana' stop and had Banana Bread - YUM. I thought this side of the island was so different to where we were staying as it had beautiful lush green vegetation and plants exactly like what we have in Australia.
We did a snorkel trip to Molokini but was very disappointed as the coral and fish were not to the standard that they were advertising or like what we have here on the Great Barrier Reef.
Would highly recommend this apartment to families and couples alike and thank Gayle for returning one cherished item left behind at Papakea but is now safely on its way back to Australia.
Our family's review of Papakea D 406
Wonderful condo. Well engineered with multiple AC systems, cozy loft and open deck with view of garden and ocean. Parking was close with easy access to unit. The unit had been completely remodeled and was very organized with recreational gear and W/D.
We had stayed the previous few nights at a high rise a short distance away which did not have AC and was not remodeled. What a difference!
The grounds are open ( with some construction going on), the pool clean and uncrowded and an open entertainment/barbeque area on the ocean - a real plus from the cramped high-rises along the coast. There was a very helpful guest resources book with recommendations for beaches, restaurants and logistics.
Our favorite spot was nearby Oneloa Bay - tucked into the Kapalua Resort with a nice open parking lot and access. You can hike a remarkable trail (Kapalua Coastal Trail) for about a mile and a half and get a neat swim ( with shower) at Oneloa.
We traveled all over the island and took ferries to Lanai and Molokai. We prefer the Napili/Kapalua part of Maui to the Wailea area. More to see and do with Molokai a dramatic back drop.
Papakea is an peaceful open oasis among the nearby high-rises. Can't miss.
My family of 4 (parents and 2 girls ages 11 and 14) and my mother in law had a really enjoyable stay at this condo in west Maui.
The grounds of Papakea are lovely and this condo has a really nice view over the pool and looking out to the ocean.
This condo is very nicely stocked with all kinds of things for a day at the beach including boogie boards and coolers, beach umbrellas and putters for the putting green out by the pool. The pool area here is also very nice with one heated pool and one non heated.
The beach in front is not the best for swimming, but there are some beautiful beaches close by and our family loved Napili just north of here where there is fantastic swimming, snorkeling and left of the main beach you can get out and swim with the turtles.
The owners of this unit are great to deal with, very quick responses. The condo has ample parking and is close to a lot of activities on the west side of the island. There is a bit of noise from the parking lot in the main bedroom, so if you're a sensitive sleeper, just bring some ear plugs.
We had one rainy day off and on and one or two cloudy, but by afternoon it was always hot again. Everything else was nice. We did a mix of beaching and driving tours.
The hide a bed worked great for my mother in law. It was different set up than we are used to with the loft above the kitchen for the girls but it all worked out...just run your dishwasher during the day so you don't keep the lofters awake at night :)
We even saw an Elvis impersonator while we were there. He was really good and the show has been getting really good reviews on TripAdvisor. Turns out he actually comes from Edmonton which was pretty funny!!
Thanks again so much for use of your place. We'd recommend it to others!!
This was our first family visit to Maui and we were very happy with choosing this accommodation. It was clean, well-stocked, spacious for our family of 4, had an excellent view of the ocean, quiet, conveniently located to grocery stores and beaches. The good quality of the cookware, supply of condiments and toiletries were just a few things that made us feel like we were at our home away from home. Times grocery store across the street provided excellent local grocery shopping. Snorkel Bob's in the strip mall across the street also provided excellent service and rental equipment. We stayed 2 weeks in Maui, 1 week in Kanapali (at Papakea) and the other week at Kihei. This was a great way to explore the island and would highly recommend this to other travelers. Our week in Kanapali was spent exploring the north and west coasts. We loved Maui and would highly recommend this accommodation.
I'm hesitant to provide a favorable review only because I don't want to have troubles re-booking this unit the next time we are in Maui! This was our 2nd stay at Papakea. This unit was far better then the one we had previously stayed at. Gayle was excellent to deal with from initial contact regarding booking availability right through our stay. She responded to all e-mails very promptly which was crucial when trying to coordinate purchasing plane tickets and booking the condo.
Gayle and Edy were extremely efficient in addressing some very minor issues we had (deadbolt that was difficult to lock). They keep the unit very well stocked with supplies (soaps, detergents etc) which is a real plus.
The property is almost 30 years old, and units vary widely in terms of recency and quality of renovations. We were happy with the overall condition of this unit. It was clean and comfortable. All appliances worked well. At the end of the day what more could you ask for!
There only ever seems to be a small number of younger families and kids that stay at this property. This place certainly seems to attract the 55+, which is great if you want a quiet peaceful stay.
The unit was exactly as described with terriffic views and easy access to the beach, pool & hot tub. We loved the barbeques supplied by Papakea resort and found them easily accessible for eating in. The unit was also very neat, well organized and well stocked with everything one would need for visiting/swimming at the beach. The unit had been remodelled and looked as though the owner really cared about it - so we did too! The air conditioning units are new and quieter than most.
We also utilized the services of the Expedia vacation people in the front office / concierge services and they were excellent. They helped us with all our questions from SCUBA diving to resturants. Your vacation can be as active or as quiet as you want it to be.
We also found the property owner (and her property manager Edy) easy to contact and great to deal with.
