FROM THE MOMENT YOU ENTER you will be surrounded by the spirit of Aloha. The first impression is from the large mirror in the dining area which reflects your initial glimpse of the Pacific Ocean and the island of Molokai. As you walk through the entry hall on the designer tile floor, your eyes are drawn to the manicured grounds including tranquil koi ponds as you again soak up the beauty of the ocean view. You can envision yourself cooking in the gourmet kitchen with granite counters, new custom maple cabinetry, new stainless steel appliances, and then realize that this will be your home for the days to come.
From the designer Granite to the new BOSCH Washer and Dryer, top of the line designer sleeper sofa, new LCD flat screen, new original artwork, new window treatments in living room and master bedroom (all 2011/2012) we have tried to attend to every detail. There is an AM/FM/CD player WITH Iphone/Ipod dock and charging unit in the home as well as two flat screen remote control televisions with satelite TV, one in the living area and one located in the master bedroom. Built in Hairdryers in both bathrooms. A major amenity appreciated by our guests is the washer and dryer conveniently located in the entry way closet (new in 2011) between the two bedrooms for our guests as well as free wireless high speed internet. Both bedrooms are on the same floor. For your added comfort, there are ceiling fans in the living area as well as in both bedrooms in addition to air-conditioning (new split system installed 2013).
Papakea is unlike any other resort on the island of Maui. With 13 acres, the Papakea resort is the lowest density condominium project on the island. From the beautiful blue ocean to the lush manicured grounds, Papakea unique when compared to any other property. Grocery shopping is conveniently located directly across the street, and the charming town of Lahaina is only a short 10 minute drive. A few of the amenities on the property include 2 shuffleboards, 3 lighted tennis courts, 2 twelve hole putting greens, 2 pools, 2 whirlpool spas, 12 outdoor barbeque's and 2 beach cabanas. There is plenty of room for the kids to play outside of this convenient ground floor unit, take a stroll from the lanai to see the beautiful koi just feet away or relax with putting greens right outside your lanai door. If it is your desire to lounge on the sand or on the grass next to the ocean, you are only about 50 steps away!
Our home at J-102 of the Papakea resort means far more to us than just a rental. It is our second home that we have grown to love and appreciate. We have also tried to pay attention to every detail and hope that our guests will do the same. Our Papakea home has been completely remodeled including granite counter tops and new custom cabinetry in the kitchen and both bathrooms, natural stone accents in both bathrooms, stainless steel appliances, air-conditioning, designer fixtures, under counter and under toe lighting, a full size dishwasher and refrigerator with automatic ice maker, mirrored closets with loads of storage, tiled floors in the living areas, and plush carpet in the bedrooms.
We would love to share with you some of our local favorite places to see and favorite things to do (not to mention some of the greatest restaurants). You will receive this information by email once your reservation is received.
Mahalo for considering a visit to our wonderful home as we truly believe Maui No Ka'Oi (Maui is the best)!

Our primary residence is in Yorba Linda, California. We visit our home in Maui as often as we are able and make every effort to make our guests feel as much at home as we do. We are primarily retired but Mary works part time as a director of Volunteers for a social services agency and Kim produces short movie clips for non-profit organizations. We have truly come to love our Maui home at Papakea and hope that our guests will feel the same way.
Sitting on 13 beautiful acres, Papakea stood out far and away from other developments in the Kaanapali area. We love the low density, the quiet atmosphere, the feeling of community and the amenities that make us feel on vacation and at home all at the same time. It seems easy to either meet new friends or socialize with old friends simply cooking at the barbeque or just soaking up the magnificent sunset views at the edge of the beach.
Our favorite times at Papakea are having coffee on the beach early in the morning and those famous Maui sunsets and sharing those times with neighbors, friends and visitors. It is great being close to everything including shopping and some of the worlds finest restaurants. We also look forward to our morning walks on the nearly 2 miles of sandy beach.
