ENJOY OUR OCEANFRONT STUDIO CONDO WITH SOOTHING SURF SOUNDS AND GREAT VIEWS

Kaanapali Condo Rental Photos and Description

Oceanfront Studio Condo with soothing surf sounds and great views

Our condo is unit A206 - a renovated direct oceanfront studio condominium. The A building is located at the north end of the Papakea complex and is one of the quietest and most private buildings in the complex. The building is located adjacent to parking and this second floor unit can be accessed via elevator or by stairs. Complimentary luggage carts are provided in each building for guest use. The unit is a short walk to one of the two pools and hot tubs in the complex, a putting green, and shuffleboard court. Surrounding each of the two pools are 6 gas-fired Weber BBQ units.

Although there are many excellent restaurants in West Maui, our personal dinner preference is to grill some fresh local fish on one of the pool-side BBQ's while watching an awesome Maui sunset. The condo is well equipped with all utensils to do so including plastic ware for the pool area.

Unlike some studio condominiums at Papakea which utilize a pull down wall mounted Murphy bed, our unit features a traditional queen sized bed, so you can comfortably drift off to sleep to the sound of the surf. A washer and dryer are included, and we also supply all linens, including beach towels.

The unit is tastefully decorated in a Hawaiian theme, and is perfect for a romantic couple getaway. The lanai includes a table with chairs and a direct view of Molokai and the whales (in season). The unit is air conditioned, however there is generally an ocean breeze blowing, and between that and the ceiling fan we seldom find use for the air conditioner, except in the hottest of the summer months. Entertainment includes a wall mounted high definition flat screen television with cable programming and DVD player, as well as a stereo with IPod dock. There is an Internet WiFi hot spot located in the unit.

The Papakea resort was constructed when Maui resort development was in its infancy, and consists of 11 four story low rise buildings spread over 13 landscaped acres. Only 3 of the 11 Papakea buildings are actual oceanfront buildings, and our unit is located in one of those buildings. The Papakea resort is within walking distance to groceries, shops, restaurants, bars, and even a local farmers market. Papakea used to have a beach in front of the complex, however mother nature removed it during a storm many years ago. Today there is a seawall and a large grassy area with plenty of chaise lounges for sunbathing and sunset watching, with a beautiful public beach approximate 100 yards to the south of the complex for ocean swimming and snorkeling.

Please come and share our little piece of Maui paradise.

Important Note: The Papakea property is undergoing an exterior renovation on a building by building basis. Many of the buildings, including ours, have already been completed. Others are as follows:

G Building - 6/6/2014 - 9/12/2014

F Building - 7/29/2014 - 11/3/2014

Noise should be minimal during this renovation because the unit faces the ocean and not the courtyard, however some noise and inconvenience could be encountered during this renovation period.

Doug and Roberta Babcock purchased this condo in 2011

Why Doug and Roberta Babcock chose Kaanapali

We first visited Papakea on our honeymoon in 1991 and quickly fell in love with the resort. Although we visited other Hawaiian resorts, as well as Mexico, Thailand, and Australia over the years, we were always drawn back to Papakea, and finally purchased our own little piece of paradise in 2011.

What makes this condo unique

Papakea was constructed when Maui resort development was in its infancy, and thus consists of 11 four story low rise buildings spread over 13 landscaped acres. Only 3 of the 11 Papakea buildings are actual oceanfront buildings, and our unit is located in one of those buildings where you can drift off to sleep to the sound of the ocean waves. Papakea used to have a beach in front of the complex, however mother nature removed it during a storm many years ago. Today there is a seawall and a large grassy area with plenty of chaise lounges for sunbathing and sunset watching, with a beautiful public beach approximate 100 yards to the south of the complex for ocean swimming and snorkeling.

I stayed at Papakea studio while visiting relatives on Maui. It was the perfect condo for me!

I would highly recommend this unit. Had every thing I needed. I felt at home and spent many evenings on the lanai listening to the ocean and enjoying the moon and stars.

Owner's Response: Thanks Bev. Glad that you enjoyed the unit. Again, sorry that you experienced issues with the washer during your stay. We replaced the washer/dryer with a new unit last week. Hope that you will think of us again when you next visit.

Close to water and proximinity to all important locations

  • 5 of 5
The owner was right: It is best close to water. After spending 9 previous years in different West Maui locations, we found our unit and location so good that a return is absolutely necessary.
Our answers to ALL your questions on the right are: YES YES,YES, YES, YES,YES.

ONE MONTH IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
Just got back from one month at Papakea. This a wonderful complex and this studio apartment is one of the best. The oceanfront makes all the difference in the world. Eating and drinking wine on the balcony as the sun sets is beyond description. Watching the whales goes one all day long in February. The studio apartment has everything you need and very comfortable. The owners are excellent and available. A car is very helpful to get to the many beaches in the area but shopping and good restaurants are within walking distance. Perfect place to be and stay.

Best stay yet!

  • 5 of 5
Though we have stayed at Papakea previously this was the first time we were directly on the water and it was fantastic. Don't need to repeat everything that has been said in other reviews (and it is all true) but will add that the accommodations are very comfortable with lots of nice touches like the high top on the lenai, the cable TV system, the comfortable bed... all the amenities. Also nice little touches like the direct connect cable to go on-line, the champagne flutes, seasoning to cook with, CDs and books. Hopefully our schedule will allow us to return next year.

Oceanfront Beauty with Molokai View!

  • 5 of 5
This really is Oceanfront! Can't get any closer. Just beautiful as well as the grounds of Papakea resort. Many lounge chairs if you wish to be in the sun right next to the ocean. The condo is beautifully decorated and well equipped. Clean and well maintained. Famous Kaanapali Beach starts at the far end of the resort and runs for miles. Beautiful golden sandy beach - we really enjoyed walking part of that. We really enjoyed Dukes Grill for Breakfast. It's about approximately 10-15 min walk depending if you go down the road or stroll down the Beach. Whalers Village is about a 3-4 min drive. But be careful parking is insanely expensive unless you buy a little drink or spend a couple bucks in one of the businesses there. You don't have to spend much - but that will give you validation and cut the cost tremendously. So don't forget to ask any business there for VALIDATION. If you love snorkelling - Molokini is a must. Beautiful clear waters and amazing sea life. You can only get there by boat but it's worth it. The drive to Hana was beautiful but a bit scary if you are nervous driver. Be sure to leave early to give enough time for the drive and to get some of Hana's famous Banana Bread. Lahaina has many cute shops and a very large and cool Banayan Tree there. Neat to see. We loved Maui - and loved our Condo. The owners were very good to work with and even made a brief call to the condo to be sure everything was to our satisfaction. If we can come back someday we will come back to this resort and condo! This vacation made for a very special 15th Wedding Anniversary!
