Bedrooms 2
Space 1,100 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

This Papakea condominium has a commanding ocean view of Molokai and Lanai. You will be able to enjoy breakfast in the morning and toast the sunset in the evening from the privacy of your own lanai that is just 50 feet from the ocean. Winter is the season for whale and dolphin watching; bring your binoculars.

You will awake to the sites and sounds of the beautiful surf from your loft sleeping suite. Perk some Kona coffee and start your day Maui style, slow and easy. A morning walk along the ocean will take you as far away as Black Rock on beautiful Kaanapali Beach or as close as the off shore reef.

Papakea has 13 acres of lush gardens with tropical koi ponds. The tennis courts, putting greens and pools/hot tubs make your time as relaxing or as busy as you chose. Children especially enjoy swimming in the pools and making sand castles by the ocean. You have the option of dining in by using the newly remodeled kitchen or by barbecuing poolside or by heading out to any one of the numerous restaurants within a five mile radius.

The main floor bedroom can sleep three with one queen-size bed and one twin bed. The loft sleeping area sleeps two on a queen-size bed and has its own bathroom. There is also a high quality queen-size sleeper sofa in the livingroom.

Please come and spend your vacation at our Papakea home-away-from-home.

About Lou & Patty Bellardo

Hello To All -

Lou & I (Patty) have enjoyed raising our children with fun filled Papakea vacations. Now we are bringing our grandchildren. We are blessed. Papakea has a family friendly environment. Our unit, L-404, was totally renovated and remodeled a few years ago. The results were even better than we expected; it’s incredible. Come and share our home away from home. Since we are both retired now, we try to get over there as often as we can. We keep the calendar (link above) up-to-date. We have been there many times since Lou retired and enjoyed buying new curtains and doing the little detail fix-ups.

One of our many favorite parts of the day is to grab some pineapple or papaya with a slice of toast and sit out on the lanai as we ease into the day.

Our children also still enjoy Papakea, bringing their children and their friends.

Why Lou & Patty Bellardo chose Lahaina

Location, Location, Location. After many visits to the Island and staying in many places, we chose Papakea because it is at just the right spot on the coast. Further north was too windy and further south was too hot. Papakea is just right. Being on the 4th floor we have a vaulted ceiling which makes the condo feel like the living room is part of the outdoors.

What makes this condo unique

Nothing can beat the fantastic sunsets from our lanai. We look straight out to Molokai with Lanai a little off to the left. The front windows stay open the entire time we are there so that we can listen to the sound of the ocean coming to shore. We have solar curtain panels in the front room, so when the curtains are closed we can still see the ocean and have our privacy at the same time. We BBQ once or twice every visit and often times just stay in the ocean side cabana and eat our dinner there.

The perfect Maui condo!

  • 5 of 5

Lou & Patti, we could not have selected a better condo in Maui for our Christmas vacation. The reservation process was stright forward and Lou promply answered all of our questions. We arrived in the wee hours of the morning and we didn’t really appreciate all that the condo had to offer until the sun came up. Were we ever pleased to discover the perfect balcony with a wonderful view of Lana’i and Molokai. The condo is located in a complex with several other buildings whose balconies face the pool...but not building L. This is the one to rent as it’s quiet and offers great views of sunset. The kitchen is well equipped if you plan to cook your own meals as we did. We always ate outside on the balcony. The unit has a bedroom with 2 twin beds which our teenage girls shared. Above the kitchen is a loft with a queen bed and its own bathroom and is that bed ever comfortable. The condo also has 3 whisper quiet ceiling fans that keep the unit cool. We never had to use the air conditioner. It also has high-efficiency stacked washer and dryer which came in handy. The condo and the resort as a whole are clean and very well maintained. The Papakea Resort is conveniently located near spectacular Kaanapali beach and is also a short drive to DT Fleming beach which is perfect for boogie boarding...awesome waves! It’s also close to a grocery store. Again, we were extremely pleased with the condo as it met all of our expectations and then some!

L404 is a little slice of heaven. I’ve stayed at Papakea before and love it, but this condo made me love it even more. Everything you need is there, and the view is breathtaking! We will be back for sure! Lou and Patty were so easy to work with and made this vacation in paradise one of the best and most relaxing! They answered all our questions and had great recommendations! I can’t say enough about the condo, the amazing views, the beautiful grounds of Papakea, and the location!

Wonderful stay at L404

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at L404 in Aston at Papakea. It is clean and well maintained. It has beautiful views from its Oceanfront Lanai. All the appliances are 1st class.

There were a few items to be addressed when we first arrived, but Lou had them taken care of very quickly.

Note that the numeric key system has a time lock so if you arrive early, the lock may not accept the code. Again, Lou was able to fix this within minutes.

Great Maui Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Papakea L404 for ten nights in July. It was an excellent stay. The location right at the ocean front is perfect. The condo itself and the resort have all the needed amenities. The unit was kept in very good shape, and Lou was super-easy to work with. We really like the fact that the split-floor plan with two bathrooms can accommodate a larger family and everyone still has privacy and convenience.

The location of this unit is perfect! The sunsets were magnificent and having breakfast on the lanai was fabulous. Everything you need to cook is in the condo. The property is in a great location to do other adventurous things along with a close by grocery store and walking distance to the ABC store. With 3 air vents in the unit, it was very comfortable. I loved the key pad to get in as opposed to keys.

Best Value Maui Beachfront Unit

  • 5 of 5

Let's begin by saying that I write this as a normalized review. In other words, it is a review against what was advertised, not against some absolute scale. I think we can all agree that Papakea is not the Ritz. Having said that...

With out a doubt, this has to be the best value I have seen in the 20+ years of visiting Maui. The views from the 4th floor balcony are breathtaking. On April 17th (most people say the whales are long gone in April) my 9 year old came screaming to me that there were whales on the beach. Well, not on the beach, but no more than 100 yards from the bulkhead were a mom, calf, and additional adult humpback whale making there way south along the shoreline. Had we been on the ground floor we probably could have seen them, but chances are if you are on the ground floor, you are not scanning the water like you are when you have this incredible view. Coupled with the sound of crashing surf, the balcony view(s) are a tremendous bonus to any Hawaiin vacation.

Again, related to value, this condo does have what I would describe as a smaller floorpan; however, we never felt cramped during our stay. There are two queen beds and a single, all of which were comfortable (not too soft or worn). Together with two full size baths, you can easily accommodate 5-6 adults. The kitchen, while not huge, has plenty of space for preparing a large meal and contains probably any utensil or pot/pan you could possibly need. Finally, there were plenty of towels, sheets, beach towels, beach toys, etc. to fill out our stay.

Papakea is great for kids. The pool was never very crowded, in fact, upon visiting Duke's for dinner, we were surprised how packed full their pools were. In fact, in the 7 days we stayed, were never once shared the elevator. Overall, it has resort feel without the crowds.

Finally, on our way to the airport I asked my wife is she would stay there again. Knowing her penchant for the Ritz and the finer spoils in life, I was surprised when she said, "without a doubt, my favorite place yet". And I would agree...the value will keep us coming back here.
