|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Unit J-104 at Papakea is a great ground-floor condo with two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. It's completely updated with new carpeting, comfortable furnishings, lots of custom touches, and a wonderful tropical interior decor!
There is a new ceramic-tile floor in the hall, kitchen, and both baths. The bedrooms and living areas feature brand new carpeting. The back bedroom is furnished with two twin beds, lamps, nightstands, a large dresser, and a huge closet. The master bedroom faces the ocean and the koi ponds, and is furnished with a king-size bed, two nightstands, lamps, a large dresser, cable TV with remote, and a large closet. It has a dreamy ocean and Molokai mountain view from the bed!
Both the bathrooms have a vanity area that's separate from the toilet and shower/bath area, with a door between them.
Both the master bedroom and the living areas face the ocean, and have a lovely view across the koi ponds and the garden to the ocean and the mountains of Molokai in the distance. The garden view is very lush and tropical -- with beautiful landscaping and extensive water features of the koi ponds.
The living room has easy chairs, a queen-size sleeper sofa, cable TV, and a VCR -- as well as dining for four and a dining bar.
The lanai steps right out to the serene and quiet koi ponds and a large grassy area. There is no pathway in front of the lanai -- just a huge grassy expanse; so it has very light traffic and is very private. You'll be buffered from pool noise by the expanse of grass and the extensive, meandering koi ponds. The sweet sounds of the waterfalls and fountains of the koi pond provide wonderful foreground music, with the booming sounds of the surf serving as calming background music.
Just walk right outside the door to the hot tubs, pools, and the wonderful ocean.
Take a book -- and relax and enjoy everything!
The condo is fully furnished with everything you'll need for even long-term stays. The full kitchen includes a dishwasher, a new oven/range, a washer/dryer, microwave, blender, and toaster. Additional amenities include air-conditioning, hairdryers in both baths, and an iron and ironing board. I also provide beach towels, a cooler, beach toys, and beach chairs as extras -- to make your stay that much more relaxing and easy. As I live right here on Maui's west side, you can call on me for anything you might need; and I can generally supply it right away.
We are constantly updating the condo, and refreshing the furnishings and equipment. I work really hard to ensure that the condo is fully and thoughtfully furnished. But you are the best gauges of this; so I welcome your feedback!
As you might know, the Papakea Resort is a very gracious tropical resort set on 13 oceanfront acres.
We have three condos there -- we love it that much! It offers wonderful amenities including two pools, two spas, two saunas, and beach access with easy swimming and snorkeling right there.
Many of my guests enjoy the water aerobics classes held every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in the Molokai pool. They just started offering beachfront yoga sessions on Tuesday and Thursday too! Others enjoy tennis, shuffleboard, or honing their skills on one of the two 18-hole, manicured putting greens.
The grounds are very handsome -- with bamboo groves and tropical plants and flowers in abundance. And with wonderful walkways meandering through extensive koi ponds that feature the soothing sounds of waterfalls and water fountains.
Location is great - out o the hubbub of Kanapali, but walking distance to the beaches and food. Local shopping close by and a 510 minute ride to Lahina. Going the other way close to golf. Everything you need is in the unit except for food and drinks. BBQ pits are great and clean as are all the pools and grounds.
We were in town for a wedding so we didn't have an opportunity to fully explore the amenities at Papakea, but the property was beautiful. The unit itself was exactly what you need when vacationing on the island. Located on the north end of Kaanapali Beach, it was minutes away from anything you needed. Jan was an amazing host. He knowledge of the island and passion for ensuring you have a memorable experience is second to none. Just wait until you receive your welcome packet. Thanks again Jan, we look forward to visiting again soon.
Thank again Jan for a wonderful week at your place in Pakakea. Just the two of us this time and as always, we did not want to leave. It had everything needed, beach towels, golf putters/balls, beach chairs and anything we needed to cook with. Ground floor unit is the only way to go, beautiful view from the lanai. Whale watching galore! Restful, quiet, lovely weather ... highly recommend this condo to a couple or a family.
This was a family trip. My wife and I both brought our mothers and we participated in the Maui Marathon. The unit is well located for most anything you want to do on Maui. The room itself is well appointed and was as advertised. The first day, the air conditioner didn't work, I called the owner and she had a new air conditioner installed within hours. You don't get much better service that that!
The view is quite nice. The property is beautifully landscaped. I've stayed on this property many times but this was my first time in a ground floor unit and we loved it. It was a short walk to the BBQ grills and the seawall for sunsoaking and sunset watching. Should you choose to book this unit, you won't be disappointed.
Been to Papakea 3 times with our family. Only place we like to stay in Maui. Hands down this is the best, most convenient condo in the resort. great ground floor location. Easy parking, close to beach, bbq, and pool. Washer and Dryer in the unit, kitchen supplies, beach accessories etc. Nice to sit on the lanai and look over the beautiful grounds and the ocean. No fighting for a lounge chair at the pool or the beach. Relaxing lull of the ocean in the evenings. A nice quiet and relaxing place to stay and close to walking to some shopping and places to eat. Everything you need for a wonderful vacation.
Everything is exactly as described in the listing - just better! The property is very clean and very well-maintained. Jan is fabulous to work with.
Quiet, tranquil and truly perfect for that perfect Hawaiian get-away.
My mom, brother and sister-in-law and I had a fabulous stay at Papkea. I've stayed here a few times before, first time in this unit but I find they are all quite the same. They all have that Hawaiian feel to them but unique in their own way. You can see each owner puts their special touch in to each unit. These folks did make it feel like home. All the supplies in a kitchen to cook anything and everything. Several items useful for a trip to the beach or even just to stay at the pool.
The details about the condo describe it perfectly. The photos are up to date but don't do it justice. The condo is very spacious and was clean and we were ready to start our holiday immediately upon arrival. There was plenty of supplies left for our week long vacation. Extra towels, plenty of cleaning supplies, even shampoo and conditioner for the forgetful type!!
The complex is stunning. They do a fabulous job of keeping it up. The pool and hot tub were great. The BBQ's are well maintained and cleaned daily. You are quite close to some shops too - groceries, restaurants, Snorkel Bobs, easy access onto the beach and boardwalk.
Everything you could ask for and more. I would highly recommend staying here. The owner was a pleasure to deal and very detailed with the instructions on how everything works when booking.
Enjoy your stay!! We did!!
Golf: Everything they offer is free for you to enjoy; so kick back and enjoy it while you're here!
