Space 1,200 sq ft
Property type condo

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Aloha and welcome to the Papakea Resort, an on-the-water oceanfront resort with a true feeling of Maui, which has the smallest number of units on some of the largest acreage of any resort in Kaanapali. We have two 3BR / 3BA condos side by side for larger family stays.

The grounds consist of almost 14 acres of open grass area, tropical gardens, bamboo & palm trees, koi ponds with water fountains and walkways lighted with tiki torches.

We have 2 large pools(1 heated), 2 large Jacuzzis, 2 putting greens, 2 shuffleboards and 3 lighted tennis courts on the resort, as well as other amenities like a newly upgraded gas barbecue area. The Resort also has an activity desk with 24-hour front desk and free parking.

Papakea is adjacent to Kaanapali Beach and a short ride to the harbor town of Lahaina. There are wonderful art galleries, restaurants and shops within walking distance and in nearby Lahaina.

We have a local farmers market a few days a week in the neighboring road behind the resort for some wonderful local fruits and other great foods.

For those of you who 'must' stay connected, Papakea now offers free Wireless Internet access throughout the resort. For times when you wish to pursue outdoor activities, the golf courses of Kapalua and Kaanapali are nearby, and great snorkeling and boogie-boarding beaches are within walking distance.

Only steps from the ocean, our top-floor penthouse unit has been completely remodeled and provides a beautiful ocean view. There is a view from the living room and Lanai.

By Hawaii's standards, this penthouse is huge. It is over 1200 square feet. The main floor has two bedrooms with their own TV's. The master bedroom is very large with plenty of closet and dresser space. It has a King-sized bed and full en suite bathroom.

The second bedroom has a King-sized bed and a full en suite bathroom.

All bathrooms feature glassed in showers and granite countertops for the vanity area.

The third bedroom is a loft with two Double beds and a Single bed with a full en suite bathroom with double sinks.

The loft area is unique and quite large. There are only a few loft units available with this type of configuration because these penthouses exist only on the fourth floor and most other fourth floor units are either a one bedroom or studio.

Our penthouse has a Split A/C system which cools the entire condo, but also comes with ceiling fans in all rooms... who needs it?! Just open all the windows, listen to the ocean, and let the warm, comfortable tropical air relax you.

The living area has ample seating, as well as a large 42-inch Plasma TV screen with satellite connection, a premium Bose sound system with Bluetooth connectivity, and a wine fridge. There is an extra HDMI connection for anyone wishing to bring their own devices such as Apple TV. The Master bedroom TV is a Smart TV.

The accordion patio doors allow full access to the lanai.

The new gourmet kitchen features halogen lighting, stainless steel appliances, cherry wood cabinets, and granite counters and bar that allow seating during meal preparation. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, cooking utensils, refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven, and coffee maker. The unit comes complete with washer and dryer.

The tiled floors throughout, give it that clean, cool look and feel you desire in the tropics.

The unit has a private Lanai that has accordion doors to allow free access inside and outside with patio furniture overlooking the pool and ocean. Sip a Mai-Tai or Martini on the Lanai and enjoy the beautiful views of the pool, the beach, and the island of Molokai. The evening sunsets are spectacular!!

We have installed the latest Kaba combination locks so that maximum security is provided to our guests. There are no keys or cards required or that may be lost! Everyone in your party will have the opportunity to enter and leave without worrying about lost or mislaid keys/cards.

A $17/day Facilities Use Fee (with a 10 day $170 maximum per calendar month) will be collected at check out, payable to the front desk.

4.5 stars! Great place to stay, well-maintained property

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this property! The condo was lovely - beautifully finished and very well maintained. We LOVED that there were 3 bathrooms (all of which were large and almost spa-like). The beds were quite comfortable and the kitchen was easy to cook in and well-equipped.

Almost everything you could want was provided in the condo: high-end cookware, coffee maker, towels (both bath and beach), Tupperware, glasses/stemware, etc. There were even more disposable goods provided than expected, including: hand soap, toilet paper and garbage bags (so I might recommend checking in to see what you actually need before going to the grocery store).

Carl was amazing to work with. He was quick with responses both before and during our stay.

The ONLY reason that I didn’t give 5 stars (and I really wish I could just take off half a star), is that you can’t actually see the ocean or pool from inside the condo. From the pics I thought we’d have a beautiful view from any place inside, but you can really only see the ocean if you sit in the far-left corner of the balcony. Otherwise, you are looking across the grounds at another one of the resort buildings. Not a bad view necessarily, just not what I had expected. Still, knowing that, I would gladly stay here again!

Beautiful Vacation, nicely remodeled 3br/3ba condo and resort.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days here and had a great time. Resort is well maintained, condo is nicely updated, very comfortable, convenient location... walking distance to coffee shop, some restaurants, misc stores and shops, and an affordable grocery store. The owner was always easy to contact and very accommodating. We shared the condo with 2 other couples and we had plenty of space and each bedroom had is own beautiful bathroom. We would rent it again!

The property was lovely and the ocean was beautiful but there was no beach, just a rock wall. The condo was nice but the walls were paper thin and between the baby next door to the right and the young couples to the left and the annoying rooster behind us,we literally had to go get earplugs so we could sleep at night. The sliding doors opened fully which we really enjoyed and the view was beautifully although a little obstructed. None of the TV,s worked properly, maybe because of the remotes, but since there were 4 remotes we couldn't be sure. We had to turn the tv's on manually and one just turned off by itself and refused to work . The bedrooms and bathrooms were large and the linens nice but the beds and pillows were hard.We enjoyed the stay but it wasn't a 5 star like we were expecting. Be warned that the resort requires a $17.00 a day resort fee that wasn't mentioned at the time of booking.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that our Guest missed the Resort Fee notice both on our VRBO Listing and our Rental Agreement. We certainly do not try and hide the fee. With the problems indicated in managing the TV and Stereo control units, we will update and simplify the procedures and document them in our units. Our walls are cement block between units so sound is carried through open windows. Hopefully this noise is a rare occurrence as we have had no concern expressed by other Guests.

What a great condo to stay in for a family! 3br / 3ba, made our stay that much easier. The condo is well appointed with all the kitchen items to make a full meal, along with plenty of kitchen prep gadgets and dishes. Although Papakea is an older property, it is beautifully maintained and the owner was absolutely fantastic to work with. Reserving the condo and check in were flawless. There are carts by each of the elevators to help take up your luggage or a load of groceries, this was a great feature when mom and I arrived earlier than the rest of the family. This property is within walking distance to small shops, grocery store and small restaurants, making it very convenient for all. The only downside, was one of the two pools is not heated. It was ice cold and no one was swimming in it while the heated pool was packed, however one of the owners did tell me they are contemplating heating the cold pool in the near future. This is a nice quiet property to stay in after a busy day around Maui and the condo showers (which are awesome) are a nice welcome after a day at the beach.

Wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for our 2 families (4 adult, 2 teens). Plenty of room for everyone. Beautiful view of the grounds and you can see the ocean from the lanai. No beach access but it is only a short drive to great beaches, shopping and restaurants. All the necessities to eat in or use the community BBQ. Chad was awesome. Mahalo
