|Minimum Stay||1 - 3 nights|
Imagine waking up to the sounds of the surf crashing against the shore and a gorgeous ocean view welcoming you to a magnificent Maui morning -- day after day after day!
Imagine being only one sip of a mai-tai away from a spectacular ocean where whales breach from December through April and sunsets take your breath away!
Imagine having a heated pool, hot tub, stainless steel BBQs, cabana, 12-hole putting green, shuffleboard, koi ponds, beautiful gardens and water features right outside your lanai!
Imagine being pampered in a newly remodeled 2 bedroom/2 bathroom ground floor condo, fully stocked with everything could possibly need for the perfect family holiday in paradise!

You and your family will love being able to come and go through the lanai doors to enjoy all the resort has to offer - no need for elevators and stairs when transporting groceries, suitcase, beach or BBQ supplies to/from the unit. It couldn't be more convenient.

Gayle Moss purchased this condo in 2013
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 at a neighborhood resort.
Other amenities include free parking, Weber BBQs, dry cleaning services, free WIFI, parking, and an activity desk.
Free yoga and aqua-fit classes as well as weekly putting and tennis tournaments are available.
Everything you could want in a vacation rental is right here. Why go anywhere else?
This was our first time on Maui and it was nothing short of amazing! There were so many things to do, two weeks wasn't enough time to fit it in at an "island" pace.
We are already planning for another two weeks next year!
Papakea is an excellent property, the negative reviews in regard to the property must be related to booking in an non-renovated condo. No, there is not a sandy beach directly in front of the complex however Kaanapali beach starts just beside our property-no crossing busy roads, etc. If you can walk from your parking spot at Costco to the entrance, you can simply walk to the beach at Papakea's property edge. Aside from this, we never stayed at the same beach day after day so what we had access to was just perfect and never crowded.
Papakea has a lot of land and very few condos relative to the land. They've maintained the integrity of the property and yes they are strict at enforcing their rules. We travelled with a group of 12 which included 7 children and they will all tell you they had an amazing time. As far as I'm concerned, Papakea is a hidden jewel, priced fairly with excellent amenities.
Gayle's condo was great and she encouraged us to try the ground floor. Well, we loved it, the access to the pools, property, putting and everything else was so convenient. The only drawback was the elevator which both bedroom windows backed on to. We heard fellow travellers heading to their excursions or the airport at early hours...Gayle was 110% responsive to all of our questions and concerns. Nothing is ever perfect and she worked very diligently to ensure we received a close-to-perfect stay in her condo.
When we return to Maui in 2016, we will stay at Papakea - that should be testament enough of the great stay we had.
Aloha and Mahalo :)

We spent 3 nights at this great unit in Kaanapali and enjoyed our stay. The unit is large, modern and well stocked. I loved using the blender everyday to make smoothies. The location to pool area is very close along with the putting and koi pond. Being on the main floor was great for us and our 2 year old so we didn't need a stroller. We did not go into the ocean at this resort as the beach is virtually non-existent as tide comes right to the retaining wall with large and it is not toddler friendly. The pool was heated which was great and the hot tub was large. There is a nice beach within a 20 minute walk by Duke's Beachhouse which is nice along with a strip mall for supplies close by like food, booze, etc. Not much else within walking distance.
The unit is a bit loud to outside parking lot noise, perhaps due to the shutter style windows, so we found our little guy was easily disturbed when napping during the day.
I would recommend the fan in the room with 2 beds be replaced as it is noisy. As well the bed frame in the master room is noisy and needs repair/replacement. Unit owner and managers were quick to respond to inquiries, very helpful and allowed us an early check in.
We spent one week in Gayle's condo and had a great time. As many have stated before, the condo is stocked with about everything you would need and more. It worked out great for us as we had three kids under 12 who were able to go out the sliding glass door and play on the putting green. The condo was clean and well kept and we wouldn't think twice about booking with Gayle again. Allowing a late check out was a life saver as our flight didn't leave until 11 pm.
We spent 10day with our 9 month old in Gayle and Charles Condo and had a wonderful time. The condo was very tidy and fully stocked with a ton of stuff that we weren't even expecting to be there (spices, sugar, laundry detergent, hand soap and even body wash). We have stayed in over 10 other condo's and none were as stocked as this one.
Also, the condo was very clean when we arrived with a welcoming gift of wine and chocolates.
Thanks again for the amazing time and also the late checkout which helped out a ton when travelling with an infant
We just returned from 2 weeks in Gayle's condo at Papakea. Our experience was perfect from our first interaction with Gayle. Being a details oriented person, I was looking to ensure that the place was suitable for ourselves and the couple we were travelling with, one of whom had never been to Hawaii. Gayle responded to every inquiry with grace and honesty. We never questioned that we were heading to accommodation that would totally suit our needs--- and we weren't disappointed. We loved the ground floor convenience; a putting green just beyond our lanai, the pool and bbqs steps away, and the oceanside lawn with chaise lounges just beyond that. The beds were top-notch comfortable and the bathrooms well equipped with quality towels. Don't worry about packing beach towels or ocean toys as they are all there. Seriously, there wasn't a single thing that we would have changed. We look forward to returning to Maui next year and will look to rent this condo again.
Gayle and Charles really put their love into this beautiful condo, this is my 4th AirBnb rental and the best yet! They really take the time to add the small details that makes the stay that much more pleasant.
1) Welcome gifts; wine, chocolate, nuts.
2) Fresh flowers instead of old dusty plants that really shouldn't be there.
3) Water Activity Equipments: Boggy Boards, Lawn Chair, Noodles
4) Kitchen Amenities: They use Corelle! We speak the same language Gayle! All their dishes, cups, wine glasses, utensils spotless. (You'd be surprised some if the utensils in other rentals I've stayed in)
5) Fluffy towels and absorbent floor mats.
6) Hand soap! I don't understand why other hosts don't provide hand soap.
My family and I had an unbelievable time in Maui, it was our first time and we fell in love with this island and where you go home after a long day has alot to do with it. It was our home for 10 days, we loved cooking there and the location is unbelievable.
The only thing is the AC doesn't keep the entire condo cool but luckily the breeze is nice and cool at night, so it wasn't necessary in the other rooms. We would definitely recommend this condo!
We only have 1 suggestion: Extra bed sheets for the sofa bed. :)
Papakea is a 13 acre oceanfront resort which exudes the magical feeling of Aloha. The complex is comprised of two sets of low-rise buildings, each with its own oceanfront pool area including a spa, a covered cabana and multiple gas barbecues.
The resort also has two large 12-hole putting greens, two shuffleboard courts, two tennis courts, gorgeous manicured lawns and lots of beautiful koi ponds and fountains.
