Space 720 sq ft
Property type condo

About the property

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

Ocean front condo with panoramic views from Lanai to Molokai, unobstructed sunset views anytime of year. Private corner unit with wrap around lanai - lots of room to lounge or dine outside. Extra large one bedroom suite with a queen bed, queen sofa sleeper in living room. Bathroom has dressing area with a double sink vanity. Large roomy kitchen for families who enjoy cooking.

Quiet corner of the property - away from parking lot, pool - just the sound of the waves at night. Watch whales right from the lanai during whale season. In-suite washer and dryer, fully-equipped kitchen, air conditioning.

Papakea has the ideal location - right at the north end of Kaanapali beach, private and quiet, but with miles of beach just steps away. Great for those who love swimming, snorkeling, jogging, strolling, or building sand castles! The lush tropical 13 acre grounds and low-rise buildings offer a relaxed island-style ambiance, roomy, yet never crowded. Walking distance to groceries, sundries, coffee shops, and spa. Short drive to shopping, galleries, and world-class dining.

Our beach home has a beautifully updated kitchen with maple cabinets, granite counter tops, and new appliances. We have a glass-top stove set in the kitchen island so that the ocean view can inspire some island-style cooking. The old fluorescent lighting was replaced with natural light and dimmer switches and the new fans have wall-switch speed control so you can create the perfect environment. The living/dining area feature a queen pull-out couch and club chair w/ottoman for ultimate relaxation. The bedroom has new bedding and luxury mattress and an HD tv/dvd.

The only downside is that our condo has become popular for repeat annual visits so it books up early. We think it's perfect for a romantic & relaxing vacation.

About The Owner

Our family enjoys country living in California, but our hearts belong to Hawaii. We're entranced by Hawaii's amazing topography, lush tropical climate, diverse ocean-life, and especially the warm aloha spirit. We have two boys who fell in love with Maui at ages 2 & 4 building sandcastles and spotting sea turtles - now they prefer boogie boarding & snorkeling. From our honeymoon, to family trips, to our anniversary celebration Maui is magical to us.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007

Why The Owner chose Lahaina

After a decade of return trips to Maui we knew our permanent vacation home would be on this island. Maui really is no ka oi. We looked at condos from Napili to Kihei, but didn't see the perfect 'one' until we came to Papakea. We found this resort to be tropical, peaceful, friendly and had several nice condos available. When we saw L301 with it's quiet corner location and 180 degree views we knew this was it - love at first sight!

What makes this condo unique

We love getting up early for a jog down the beach - all the way to Black Rock, or a stroll over to the Farmer's Market for upcountry veggies and tropical fruit. During the day we can watch our kids on the beach from the lanai or play a game of tennis. Evenings are our favorite - we skip the restaurant wait and grill fresh fish by the pool and dine at the ocean-front cabana, getting the best sunset views. The cabana is perfect for families with kids and dining with friends. For a romantic dinner we prefer the private lanai with island music playing in the background. At nightfall we stroll along the torch-lit paths or take a soak in the jacuzzi and plan the next day's adventure.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Many thanks to you for providing such a perfect place to stay while enjoying the sights of Maui. We couldn't have picked a better place. It was everything we hoped for and more. We are telling all of our friends about your condo. We can see it is already booked far into the future. Very telling!

Thanks so much, again, for making our 30th Anniversay celebration the perfect week away!

Well appointed condo and beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here Jul 8 -13 and had a wonderful time. The condo was perfect for us, clean, cool and comfortable with lots of nice upgrades. Gorgeous to wake up in the morning to the sound of the waves and the singing of the birds. Of all the things we did, one of my favorite evenings was when we got fresh Mahi Mahi from the fish market, grilled it by the pool, and ate on the lanai watching a spectacular sunset. Just perfect. Everything we needed was provided. Short walk from the resort gets you to the boardwalk and Kanapali Beach. Would highly recommend the Papakea first day breakfast where the local Expedia expert gives trip options. We won a ticket to the Drums of The Pacific luau that we thoroughly enjoyed. Highly recommend this property! Thanks for letting us use your lovely place.

Great ocean views. Pefect for sunsets

  • 4 of 5

Great corner location with fantastic views. Condo is nice and quiet, only noise is the ocean below. Far enough away from the pool to avoid the noise but only a few steps away. Found a great snorkeling location which is only a short drive away, Airport beach....

Felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

The description and pictures of the condo are spot on! Stunningly beautiful views of neighboring islands, whales, dolphins, etc from lanai. Quiet location. Easy walking distance to the boardwalk, Kaanapali beach, restaurants, specifically the famous Duke’s restaurant. Would definitely stay here again and refer others who plan on visiting Maui.

The condo was perfect for our recent stay on Maui. Views are awesome. The ocean is right outside the sliding glass doors with views of Molokai. We were also able to view whales from the lanai. The location is within walking distance of restaurants and shopping and only a few miles from great beaches and Lahaina. Owners are responsive and accommodating. We will be back!
