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 a DVD/BluRay/CD player. 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.

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.

Oceanfront Condo

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed there for 10 days. We enjoyed our stay. We loved the oceanfront view. The unit was clean and nice and very accommodating. The only negative we found was the lack of beach in front. If we wanted to lay on the beach we had to drive there or walk a mile or so.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Papakea Resort in this condo. The views are positively stunning. We enjoyed watching the whales from the lanai with great unobstructed views. The condo itself was well equipped with everything you would need to cook, and also some great items to take to the beach - lawn chairs, coolers, etc. We found the condo to be very clean, and even though it is a studio it seemed to be quite spacious. There was an unforeseen circumstance during our stay where mother nature caused for construction to take place in front of, and beside building A. The owner was very understanding of the situation, and compensated us for the inconvenience. I was impressed with how well he handled the situation. Between the wonderful condo, and the wonderful owners, I would stay here again in a heartbeat, and recommend this unit to anyone. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Oceanfront Gem in Maui

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Papakia Resort in this stunning A building oceanfront condo. We have stayed at the Papakia Resort 5 years ago and loved it. We watched the whales and sea turtles from the lanai along with beautiful sunsets. This unit is well equipped and the owners were very accommodating with my dates requested. I will be back in a few years and will make sure I stay at this unit.

We enjoyed our stay at Papakea

Resort in our A building unit. Our family Thanksgiving dinner at the pool cabana will be a great Maui memory. The sunrise bike ride on Halelakala was incredible. The unit was clean and spacious and the owners are very accomodating. Mahalo for sharing your slice of

paradise.

On my favorite beach in the world

  • 5 of 5

Loved every minute of staying at your oceanfront condo, listening to the waves up close! Beautiful view, well equiped and organized supplies, the location fantastic for walking to grocery store, restaurants, and of course the beach. I also enjoyed the tennis doubles on Tues night--very fun! Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful place.

2nd honeymoon in paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to Maui for our second anniversary. We stayed 11 amazing days and it just wasn't enough. We have stayed at papakeya before but this was by far our favorite stay (my 5th trip to Maui). This unit was perfect. The view was stunning, my favorite was watching the sea turtles from the lanai. We didn't have to go far to see the sunset every night, in fact, the best seat was on our own lanai. The fully stocked kitchen was a great way we could cook our own meals or BBQ by the pool. I especially enjoyed the morning workout classes they offered for free (water aerobics and beach front yoga). I could not give anything but my highest recommendation to rent this condo. This is the first of many trips we will make and stay at this condo. Best condo we have stayed at :)
