Lahaina Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)


Our unit at Papakea is a one-bedroom, air-conditioned, ocean front condominium on the third floor of a four-story elevator building, located in the famous Kaanapali-West Maui resort area. Papakea has two oceanside pools with Jacuzzis and cabanas, and two putting greens. Free tennis is available on three lighted courts. The complex has free wireless Internet access available in all units. Our unit is oceanfront, not oceanview. It is right on the ocean and the view is one of the most beautiful on Maui.

The condo will sleep four. There is a queen-size bed in the bedroom, as well as a queen-size hide-a-bed in the living room. All linens are provided. There are a washer, dryer, iron, and ironing board in the condo. For your convenience, there is a safe in the bedroom closet.

The bathroom has a large granite vanity and sink and a beautiful, glass-enclosed, tile shower.

The kitchen is granite and complete with all cooking utensils and dishes, a full-size refrigerator, range, built-in microwave, dishwasher and garbage disposal. Appliances such as a coffee-maker, toaster, and blender are also provided.

There is HD cable TV as well as a DVD player in the living room and a second TV in the bedroom. There is also a radio/CD/cassette player. Ceiling fans are in the bedroom and living room. Storage space is ample. The private lanai has a lounge chair, four chairs, an end table, and a larger table for outside dining. Enjoy watching the Pacific, the spectacular sunsets and in season, the whales!

Rest assured that we offer ON-ISLAND management should you need anything related to our condo during your stay.

Please contact the owner via e-mail or phone for additional photos, floor plan, reservation and cancellation policy, and more.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"To us one of the *best* things about your place was the top quality AC unit! Thank you also for the portable fan to blow cool air back towards the bedroom--that's a must for us from the Northwest, where we just ain't used to the heat! Mahalo."

For the first time ever we got to stay on Maui for a full month. Ahh, retirement. Staying in this unit was wonderful. We used to stay in the unit next door but it was sold and no longer available. So I found F309 on VRBO and we are hooked. This is our second time here. What a lovely unit and the view is to die for. Although they were doing some work on the sea wall we were use fine with that. It didn't block our view and the bursts of noise didn't bother us. My husband especially loved watching their progress. Everything inside the unit is lovely and so well maintained. The kitchen is well stocked. We didn't need a thing except our food. We also love this unit on the beach as we just have the beautiful quiet view of the water, Molokai and Lanai. We prefer that to having views of the pool, although we sure spent plenty of time there and lounging on the lawn. The only bad part of the entire month was having to come back home to reality. But we will definitely stay in F309 the next time we come. We plan our vacation around it's availability. The owners feel like family even though we have never met personally. They respond immediately to any question I happen to email. This beautiful place is the BEST!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at the Papakea several times. This condominium was very nice and well equipped. There is some construction going in front of a different building, which impacted our ability to walk south, down the beach, to Duke's and other restaurants, which is one of our favorite things to do. However, the construction did not impact the view from our lanai, which was incredible. Can't get any closer to the ocean without jumping in. Love it!

Maui vacay

  • 5 of 5

This was our first VRBO in Maui, and this condo satisfied our every need and desire. The whale watching from the lanai was phenomenal. It was like "whale stew" from the balcony, and we used our binoculars everyday!

We were pleased by the quick response from the maintenance man when we had a small issue. The owners were a pleasure to contact!

We would recommend this unit without hesitation. As we are now back in the desert, we miss the trade wind breezes, the gorgeous sunsets, and the pounding of the ocean waves!

75th Birthday in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Papakea several times but never thought we would be able to get F building. We finally did and were able to stay for 4 wonderful weeks. It was a dream come true for us. The condo is beautiful and so comfortable. The sunsets are wonderful from the unit. We had alot of surf while we were there and the sound of the waves was so relaxing. The owners are great people and really easy to work with and talk to. Had a wonderful and relaxing birthday and looking forward to coming back in 2018 for 6 weeks, cannot wait. Thanks so much.

Fabulous stay

  • 5 of 5

We stay annually in this unit, 3 weeks this year. It is a superb location, well equipped with full view of ocean and the sound of crashing waves. Lots of surf this year. The owners are wonderful to work with and the care provided for the unit is excellent. We've rented quite a few units in this complex (depending on number of family coming with us) and this is our favorite one for the two of us! So much so, that we plan our next stay years in advance. Papakea Resort is carefully kept and there are many amenities available. This unit is excellent value.
