Papakea has two oceanside pools with Jacuzzis and cabanas, and two putting greens. Free tennis is available on three lighted courts.

There is HD cable TV as well as a DVD player in the living room and a second cableTV 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!

An amazing place to stay
For a first time trip to Maui this condo was the perfect place to call home, if only for a week. It was immaculately maintained, very clean and very comfortable. The location couldn't have been better with a great view & close to the pool/hot tub. We dined at some wonderful places - Cane & Canoe, Duke's and of course Fleetwood's on Front Street. All most excellent! We will definitely return to explore more of Maui and also recommend this property to others as a great place to stay. Kudos to the owner for great customer service!
Beautiful ocean front condo.
Had a wonderful time at this very beautiful ocean front condo.
The condo was clean and the views were spectacular.
We had some serious rain but even enjoyed that from our lanai.
Papakea has well maintained poosl and grounds and enjoyed yoga, swim aerobics and even Tai Chi.
Jill is a delight to work with and we had no maintenance issues at all.
Hope to come back soon!
And we look forward to welcoming you back soon! Thank you so much, Liz, for taking the time to write a review for us. ----Jill
Clean, safe and very beautiful
Everything was perfect. The condo was clean and well furnished and very comfortable. The view from the lanai was amazing. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets, turtles swimming in the surf and humpback whales in the distance. We swam and snorkelled in front of the property and the ocean was so clean and warm. Plus we saw many colourful fish. We couldn't have picked a nicer property to stay at! We were very happy with our vacation and we hope to come back.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review for us, Kristine. We work very hard behind-the-scenes to make every guest's stay the best that it can be. We provide a mid-stay cleaning service for all rentals of 10 nights or more to be sure that our unit is clean and comfortable, and we have one of the best cleaning services on the island. We and our property manager listen and respond to our guests' concerns in as timely a manner as possible, usually within hours. Of course, we claim no responsibility for the exquisite view; that speaks for itself! We hope to welcome you back again soon.
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!
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
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.
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.
