Paradise re-visited

  • 5 of 5

This is a superb unit in a splendidly kept property. We enjoyed our now annual 28 days of paradise in this ocean front condo which is well equipped and maintained. It feels like we are coming home when we return each year. We greatly appreciated the ocean related equipment and weekly cleanings which come with extended stays. We enjoyed the Outrigger Canoes trip (N. Corner of Westin), snorkeling off the beach near there, dining at Frida's and Dukes, and a Pacific Whale Foundation whale watching trip. We would highly recommend this unit---we ate dinner most nights on the Lanai and made good use of the well-maintained barbecues located around each pool. Looking forward to next year already!

My husband and I stayed at Papakea F-309 for our honeymoon and our stay was nothing short of perfection! We were so close to all the yummy- highly rated restaurants as well as all the beaches and cute markets. We would walk down the road to Bad Ass Coffee which was right next to the Farmers Market (that had the best Acai bowls I've ever had). Also, our condo was right next to the ABC store which has everything you could need or might had forgotten.

I loved that we were so close to the water! Literally a few yards from the water. I noticed some other guests swimming around in the shallow parts of the ocean, however, we never experienced it ourselves. Next time we will definitely have to try it out! The lawn chairs on the grass were perfect as we watched the sunset almost every night and the sunrise every morning. It is a great place for families and couples that love the quiet, beautiful, and well-taken care facility to enjoy their well-deserved vacation at. The condo is SO cozy and very well taken care of. Plenty of room for the two of us! It had everything you could need! Beach towels, beach chairs, books, cooking utensils, cookware, plates, glasses, washer/ dryer, etc. I wished we used the stove/ oven more, but it was also very nice to not have to cook :)

This is our new Maui vacation spot!! We are already planning our next trip!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review for us, Heather. Next time, do explore the ocean in front of Papakea. The snorkeling there is quite good, especially on mornings when the sea is calm. Guests often see sea turtles right out in front of F-309! If you walk north past A-Building, the tide pools there are fascinating. You have to go in the mornings when the tide is out. There are many (live) shells that cling to the black rocks above the tide pools as well as fun black crabs that hang out there. The crabs are very shy, so you have to sit still awhile before they will venture out. They are also well camouflaged, so it takes awhile to figure out what you are looking for. We look forward to welcoming you back soon!

Clean, comfy and so relaxing

  • 5 of 5

From the very first, the owner Jill could not have been nicer or more helpful. She was very responsive to any inquiry and we were so amazed at the speed in which our cleaning deposit was refunded after our trip.

We were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived in the unit to find that the rattan furnishings were actually very comfortable. Everything was very clean and well cared for. We have never been in a vacation rental that better stocked than this one. There was so much thought that went in to anticipating every need one might have while vacationing. Pots, pans, baking dishes, muffin tin, mixing bowls and measuring cups and spoons. Plenty of dishes, coffee cups and glasses. Even two, yes two, garlic presses! Because one is never enough :-)

There were also a few condiments and coffee filters, plastic wrap and foil. It was so nice that previous renters left a few helpful things here and there and we tried to do the same.

There was also everything you could possibly need for a day at the beach. Towels, toys, chairs, floats. Also golf balls and putters for the putting green at the resort.

Now for a couple negatives. (Very small negatives) The two right side burners on the stove didn't seem to work, so breakfast took a little extra time in the mornings. So of course had to have an extra cup of coffee while cooking. Also, and kind of a so-so negative...the air conditioner works great! It just doesn't quite cool the bedroom well while the living room is freezing. Those two very inconsequential things aside, we loved it.

All in all, an excellent vacation. We couldn't have been happier with our stay and thank Jill most sincerely. We would highly recommend anyone looking at booking at the Papakea to choose F-309. The view is amazing and you won't wrong with this property.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review! We appreciate your compliments and are so happy that you enjoyed your time in Papakea F-309. We sincerely apologize for the issue you experienced with the stove burners. Apparently when our cleaning service cleaned the stove, they didn't plug the burners back in completely. There is nothing wrong with the stove or with any of the burners; they just need to be pushed into their power sources in order to work. We wish you had contacted us or Dave, our property manager, because we could have resolved the problem for you immediately. Thank you again for taking the time to write a review for us, and we look forward to welcoming you back to Papakea F-309 in the future.

Absolutely lovely

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED the Papakea resort, and this unit was lovely, perfectly appointed, clean and comfortable....and everytime we walked in, we literally said "Wow" at the ever changing clouds over Molokai, which consumes your entire view.

The bed was comfortable, every need was met, and we very much appreciated the AC. Though we typically prefer having a bedroom that also faces the sea --one bedrooms at this resort have the bedroom at the back, and people who prefer sleeping in darkness may actually prefer this! -- we would stay here again in a heartbeat, and just might book it again next year!

We loved the provided putters to play the two 12-hole greens on site, and the two pools and hot tubs assured it was never crowded. We swam right in front of the property as well as many of the nearby beaches and parks. I enjoyed free tai chi in the gazebo one morning!

Best of all is the proximity of this resort to supermarkets, restaurants, bus stop, shopping, farmers market, park and more. All of which we could walk to!

We visited the bigger resorts just down the beach in Kannapali, but agreed Papakea has more soul! As does unit F-309. (F building is the best!) Thanks Jill! We'll be back!

Amazing ocean front condo!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful unit, well stocked and very clean. Beautifully manicured grounds and 2 nice pools. Have stayed here numerous times and always happy to return. Lots of amenities nearby and a short walk to the start of the Kaanapali boardwalk for morning walk or run. Owners extremely easy to deal with. Will be back !

Unbeatable View at the Lovely Papakea Resort

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We loved spending time on the balcony reading and listening to the waves rolling in. Every day at about 11:30 we watched turtles swim north, just off shore. What a treat! We were told that they're migrating this time of year. One day we also saw two eagle rays circling each other and swimming fairly close to the sea wall.

We found the condo to be clean, comfortable and well stocked. The owners were friendly and helpful throughout, wanting to ensure that we were happy with our experience. We would definitely recommend that friends stay here and we hope to be back sometime, too.

This is the second year that we've stayed at the Papakea Resort. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and well-maintained. There are multiple activities offered onsite. One of the things we like most about Papakea is that it's a very family-friendly place to stay.

One of the highlights of our trip was driving the road to Hana. We stopped at the Garden of Eden Arboretum along the way-- there were several trails to walk, amazing views, an immense bamboo forest, peacocks and more. The food truck out in front of the arboretum had the best banana nut bread that we've ever had. We also really enjoyed playing in the waves at the black sand beach.

The Iao Needle rain forest is a short drive away and definitely worth taking the time to explore. Shopping in Lahaina is always fun, and my son recommends the shave ice from the shop next to the large banyan tree.

For eating out, we recommend going to Duke's and Leilani's. Both have really good food and amazing ocean/beach views while you dine. Check the local newspaper to see when they have live music.

We stopped by Costco in Kahului right after we flew in and stocked up on breakfast and lunch food for the week. The prices were very reasonable, and not everything is sold in huge quantities like it is back home. Being able to have a couple of meals each day here at the condo saved us quite a bit of money (more money for souvenirs and t-shirts).

All in all, a fabulous trip.
