My family of 4 (parents and 2 girls ages 11 and 14) and my mother in law had a really enjoyable stay at this condo in west Maui.
The grounds of Papakea are lovely and this condo has a really nice view over the pool and looking out to the ocean.
This condo is very nicely stocked with all kinds of things for a day at the beach including boogie boards and coolers, beach umbrellas and putters for the putting green out by the pool. The pool area here is also very nice with one heated pool and one non heated.
The beach in front is not the best for swimming, but there are some beautiful beaches close by and our family loved Napili just north of here where there is fantastic swimming, snorkeling and left of the main beach you can get out and swim with the turtles.
The owners of this unit are great to deal with, very quick responses. The condo has ample parking and is close to a lot of activities on the west side of the island. There is a bit of noise from the parking lot in the main bedroom, so if you're a sensitive sleeper, just bring some ear plugs.
We had one rainy day off and on and one or two cloudy, but by afternoon it was always hot again. Everything else was nice. We did a mix of beaching and driving tours.
The hide a bed worked great for my mother in law. It was different set up than we are used to with the loft above the kitchen for the girls but it all worked out...just run your dishwasher during the day so you don't keep the lofters awake at night :)
We even saw an Elvis impersonator while we were there. He was really good and the show has been getting really good reviews on TripAdvisor. Turns out he actually comes from Edmonton which was pretty funny!!
Thanks again so much for use of your place. We'd recommend it to others!!
