Lahaina Condo Rental Photos and Description

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!

Beautiful Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I booked the condo for a week to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay as it was our first to Maui. Scott & Linda were excellent to work with and suggested shopping and restaurant ideas. I will miss listening to the ocean every night.

We loved this unit! We've stayed at Papakea before but this unit was the best! It had everything we needed for our trip. Our family of 3 was so comfortable! It looks just like the pictures and the view was our favorite part. We will definitely be back!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thus is a terrific condo to rent right on the beach. The sun rises and sunsets were spectacular and the owners could not have been more accommodating. The unit is updated and very comfortable. It is within walking distance to groceries and fast food. When we come back to Maui this is where we will stay. Thank you Scott and Linda.

Maui Magic

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th trip to Maui and our 4th stay in Building L at the Papakea Resort. The grounds are beautiful and pools refreshing. This was our first stay in a corner unit and the views and photos posted on VRBO are exactly what you will find when you arrive. The furnishings are comfortable and truly give you that island feel. We also found the keypad to be a plus as opposed to keys. From the location of this condo it is a short drive to Lahaina where you will find many places to dine and shop. An even shorter drive will take you to Whaler's Village where you can dine ocean side at Hula Grill and Leilani's or at Duke's Beach House located in the Honua Kai Resort & Spa or take a walk next store to Kaanapali Shores for breakfast and happy hour specials. If you want to pick up a few groceries stop at Safeway in Lahaina on your way to the resort from the airport or closer to "home" at Times in the plaza across the street (good pizza place there too) or Napili Market to the north. You may also want to try the barbecue ribs at Mama's Rotisserie in Napili. Other incidentals can be found at the ABC store within walking distance. Staying oceanfront is worth any extra cost. Note: The only reason we did not stay at Papakea last year was because our trip was planned at the last minute and I couldn't secure a rental for our dates.

Great location for a memorable vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with this condo. The views from the balcony were outstanding. The accommodations were great. Clean, comfortable and well maintained. Activities such as ziplining, golf and morning walks along the beach made our stay very memorable. Owners were very friendly and made this vacation the experience we desired. We will be doing this again.

Fabulous Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just had our first vacation without kids in twenty-six years and were lucky enough to stay in this wonderful condo that is truly "ocean front". Each morning was spent on the patio overlooking the beautiful ocean having breakfast and coffee while planning another day in paradise. Each evening was spent admiring another wonderful sunset. The condo was comfortable and the resort was perfect size for us and is also beautifully maintained. The pictures on the web-site are lovely and exactly what you will see when you arrive. Thank you Linda and Scott. Looking forward to returning again next year.
