One whiff of the plumeria blossoms and you'll know you've arrived.
The Papakea complex sits just off the main road in the town of Honokowai, just north of Ka'anapali, on the leeward (an old nautical term meaning 'best') side of Maui. But traffic is light, and the condo is free of noise and congestion – just the sounds of the Pacific waves crashing on the sand mere yards from your bedroom window. You can throw a baseball into the ocean from the balcony.
Witness sunsets that seem almost otherworldly, they're so spectacular. With gorgeous views of Molokai and Lanai. (Not 'the lanai', but Lanai – the actual island.)
The first stretch of beach is just an elevator ride and a 100-foot walk away from your bedroom door. The old Hawai'ian capital of Lahaina, West Maui's major town, is just 8 minutes south. To the north is the bucolic, world-famous resort of Kapalua, where the PGA season traditionally kicks off.
Papakea's common areas include a big pool and Jacuzzi, along with shuffleboard and horseshoes.
Nightly rates include parking and wi-fi. Minimum night stay may be required. Contact us via the email form to the right to request a personalized rate quote.
$150 cleaning fee
$500 refundable security deposit.
Hawaii taxes collected at time of payment in full:
9.25% Transient Accommodation Tax and 4.16% General Excise Tax
Cancellations or changes that result in a shortened stay (or made within 30 days of your arrival date) forfeit the full advance payment and damage/reservation deposit. Neither canceling nor departing early warrants any refund (of rent or deposit.)
The entire building is non-smoking. Evidence of smoke means a $1000 surcharge, plus charges levied by Papakea management.
No pets, and you have to take off your shoes before entering the condo. (Sand gets everywhere.)
There's no air conditioner, not that you'll need one. There are fans in every room.
Our unit is in oceanfront building L.
