Christmas 2017 Special Message:

Demand during the Christmas period is always far higher than any other time of the year. We're keeping the same pricing as the past years but want a 14 night minimum stay that doesn't fit into the automatic booking system.

So please contact us directly via phone or e-mail if interested in Christmas. We're leaving pricing the same at $340 per night for the 10 nights between December 23 and January 2, 2018. Additional nights in December are the standard $205 per night. Additional nights in January are the standard $250 per night. We're holding open 18 nights (December 16 through January 4) with this new system for a minimum 14 night booking.

Again, if this is confusing, we apologize and would love to talk with you directly!

Back to the normal message...

ALOHA! Stunning views abound from this spacious and open corner loft unit, at the Papakea Resort. Located less than 50 yards from the ocean, makes this beautifully decorated and remodeled unit almost ocean front. Save and rent directly from owner for quality that you can count on when you arrive.

The Papakea Resort is a tropical oasis on 13 acres of manicured grounds, with a thoroughly Hawaiian atmosphere. It has the largest amount of land of any condominium resort on Maui’s spectacular Kaanapali beach, the only resort with two ocean front pools, two spas and two large 12 hole putting greens. Grounds also include three lighted tennis courts, two shuffleboard courts, two beach cabanas, tranquil koi ponds, lush gardens and 12 outdoor barbecues.

Papakea is conveniently located between the Kaanapali and Kapalua world class golf resorts, just minutes away from shops, restaurants and galleries in nearby Lahaina and Whaler’s Village. Walk to the grocery store, delis and other services on the other side of Papakea and right across the street. Other restaurants are within walking distance just down the beach.

K-401 is the top fourth floor corner unit closest to the ocean. The K building is very desirable because it shelters the lanai and living room from the afternoon sun and is in a quiet dead end parking lot. An elevator is just a few doors away. Free parking is right outside the building.

A beautiful remodel provided new cabinets, granite countertops, tile floors and many other updates. K-401 was then a model unit on the Papakea Homeowner’s Annual Meeting unit tours for two years.

The entire first floor and lanai, has the cool feel of clean tiles, placed in an elegant diagonal pattern. Storage is abundant throughout, with extra closets and dressers. The owners continue to upgrade and maintain the unit EVERY year to sustain the quality guest experience. The latest major improvement is a Fujitsu tri-zone air conditioning system that provides three independently controlled air handlers in the living room/kitchen, loft and master bedroom for unparalleled comfort.

Soaring wood cathedral ceilings rise up to the loft, that makes this unit feel like a home rather than just a hotel room. Picketed railings allow light and air to flow through but children under 5 are not recommended, due to dangers inherent in the loft.

The K building was also finished in the almost $1 million dollar per building Papakea exterior renovation project in the summer of 2012. The project reversed almost 40 years of ocean front wear by repairing the concrete spalling damage, replacing all of the building railings, coating the lanais and walkways with a high tech engineered surface and painting the exterior. Papakea has never looked better!

Enjoy our second home as we do and absorb the aloha spirit at Papakea!

Pricing below is far lower than typical "rack rates" of other internet travel services but no surprises when you check in. If you pay for Papakea unit K-401 quality, you will get the K-401 location and amenities for your stay. No ka ‘oi.

About The Owner

Mike and Cindy are both pharmacists and have two sons, Ryan and Justin and a corgi named Riley. The Maui condo has always been a wonderful second home to gather the family since we now all live in different parts of the country.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2000

Why The Owner chose Maui

Maui has always been a magical place for our family, even before we bought the condo. While there are fantastic activities, we mostly just enjoy the relaxing Hawaiian culture, snorkeling, laying around water and dining in a variety of spectacular settings.

What makes this condo unique

Papakea is a beautiful setting for all ages. We bought because Papakea has the rare commodity of land. It's not a typical hotel like high rise facility. There are wonderful beaches in both directions and the putting greens are fun relaxation.

Unit K-401 has the added benefit of wide open spacing. The loft soars high up and the side window contributes to NOT feeling like a cramped hotel room. K-401 feels like somone's home because it is. Having a second floor in the loft just adds to the feeling.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Mike & Cindy for sharing your wonderful home with us! We had a wonderful time on the island. Staying here at Papakea certainly added to the experience. We really appreciate your hospitality and for being so friendly during the reservation process. We look forward to another great trip back soon.

A wonderful stay on Maui

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from a wonderful one month stay in Mike and Cindy's condo: K401. We could not have been more pleased. Mike and Cindy were super to deal with at every step along the way. They answered every question we had, before and during our stay. The condo itself has so much to offer, just as described. The new appliances made cooking and cleaning easy. The beds were very comfortable. Having the 4th floor lanai view every day was the "icing on the cake." We would highly recommend choosing this condo for your stay at Papakea.

Dakine. Yes, picture yourself in paradise...I can smell the Plumeria.

  • 5 of 5

Mike and Cindy made everything so easy and stress free. If it's your first time to Maui or if you've been before you'll appreciate their attention to detail. We loved the location. Close to all you'd like to do on the island or if you just want to stroll Papakea. Want to snorkel ? Just a short trip to Kaanapali, Kapalua or Honalua Bay. Surf? The Break Wall at Lahaina. Dining opportunities are too numerous to mention. If you happen to want to do your own cooking there's a supermarket walking distance. Ocean breezes and views of Molokai from the lanai. Their home as all you need to call Maui your home too. We hope to visit again. Maui No Ka Oi

Our group of women picked this condo because of the location and the view. We have stayed in many condo's at Papakea and this Condo you won't beat the view.

The owners are more than gracious to work with, and always respond back right away.

We enjoyed it so much we are booking again next year for our annually women's get away.

A place we always look forward to

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth stay in the condo. As has always been the case, it was a very enjoyable stay. To start with, Mike and Cindy make it so simple to complete the arrangements, and they are very diligent in making sure we feel that any challenge that might arise will be taken care of - having said this, we have yet to have a real challenge. The upstairs space with a full bathroom allows for real privacy for a second family member staying in the condo. The big window on the west makes the front room space seem quite large and very bright. The higher table and chairs on the lanai allow for a great view of the pool, the putting green and the ocean. The kitchen has good counter and cupboard space, and it is well stocked with glasses, mugs, utensils, etc. The condo has always been very clean on our arrival (different from experiences we have had elsewhere). The location is fantastic - the property is at the north end of the walking part of the beach, so you don't get much unfamiliar traffic. At the same time, the walk south along the beach into Kaanapali is a great way to spend an afternoon or evening. We really would recommend it to all.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

My family of four stayed at this condo for six days and we couldn't have been more pleased. As soon as we entered the unit, the first thing we saw was the great view of the ocean out through the lanai. Walking distance to the shore is about 175 feet. This unit overlooks one of the two pools and hot tubs in the development and there are about six barbecues spaced out around the pool and lounge chairs. I was able barbecue dinner while the family was in the pool.

Staying in a condo with full amenities (full kitchen, washer/dryer, etc) is the best way to do it with a family. If you just want to kick back and not do anything that day, you don't feel like you have to get out of there like you do in a hotel room. The loft was a hit with the kids. There are stores and restaurants within walking distance. Definitely going to remember this property when we plan our next trip to Maui. The owners, Mike and Cindy, were great to work with.

Our family took this trip to celebrate our daughter graduating high school. WE were there for 10 days. Our children ages 14, 18 and 21 loved the condo. It was perfect with the loft area, vaulted ceilings and the lanai was a huge favorite. The picture they have posted is not touched up in any way. It looks exactly like that...only you can feel the breeze and hear the ocean. The pool and BBQ's were a great place to be in the evenings and the shuffle board and golf were great family fun. Snorkeling just down from the condo is great. Cannot wait to go back again. Maui is just a wonderful island. Thank you Mike and Cindy for having a wonderful place that you share.
