Property type condo

About the property

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

Papakea is an unique property. Instead of a high rise it is a set of buildings only 4 levels high. There are three sets of buildings that front the ocean and we are located in the middle section--the perfect location for reaching either of the two swimming pools, putting greens etc. Being Ocean Front you hear waves crashing unto the shore instead of cars in the parking lots.

The property is 13 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds including Koi Ponds, bridges and lots of plants native to the islands.

Our unit, in the highly requested F Building, has gone through a total renovation and is updated regularly to keep in in prime shape. We have a king size bed in the bedroom and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. We have two TVs: one 42 inch flat screen in the living area and the other 32 In flat screen in the bedroom. We have a DVD/ VHS player and a small DVD library and a reading library.

About Jan Stahl

This is my family's condo on the beautiful West side of Maui. My parents bought the condo back in 1977. My sisters and I were born and raised in San Jose CA. I currently teach in San Jose and my husband of 45 years is retired. We have two children and two grandchildren.

Why Jan Stahl chose Maui

My parents bought this property over 39 years ago. They vacationed in Hawaii and fell in love with the West side of Maui. My children came here every year for vacation and we all still love it to this day. Papakea is a great place to enjoy the sights of Hawaii in a real Hawaiian atmosphere.

What makes this condo unique

This is a great place to do as much or as little as you want. There are day trips like the volcano, Ioa Needle, zip lines, hiking or helicopter rides or water activities such as: kayaking, sailing, snorkeling, parasailing, jet skiing and surfing. For those who just want to relax it has a beautiful setting whether you are a beach person or a pool person.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to tell you what a wonderful stay we had at your place at Papakea. We left it as nice as when we arrived by replacing some paper products, and we even left a pair of crutches from when I sprained my ankle in Oahu.

We were so thrilled to enjoy the beautiful setting and the facilities at the property.

Thank you so much for our 50t Anniversary will always be a wonderful memory

Still the best!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we've stayed at the Papakea and the second time in Jan's unit. It is by far the best location and we are so glad we stayed here again. It is such a beautiful spot and the convenience of being able to just step onto your lanai and be ocean front is our favorite part. Jan is fabulous to deal with and treated us great. The unit is stocked with anything you need and the Papakea is across the road from the grocery store, so everything is within walking distance. We will definitely stay here again in the future! Thanks so much Jan for your outstanding hospitality and opening your second home to us again! Mahalo

Maui paradise

  • 5 of 5

A slice of paradise only 50 feet from the ocean. Nicely maintained ground floor unit where you can sit on the patio and watch the sun go down to the sound of the waves breaking.

This is our 5th stay at the Papakea Resort and our second visit to this specific unit. It is wonderful, 25 feet (+/-) to the seawall. It is magnificent to sit on the lanai and watch the whales and dolphins. We have already reserved for next January, I guess you can say its become one of our favorite places on earth ! The unit is comfortable and kitchen has everything you need. There is a grocery nearby which is a plus. This year we enjoyed a zipline was really fun. There are many to choose from, we chose the one that is near Kaanapali thru Skyline EcoAdventure.

It was great.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and wish we could have stayed longer. The condo was so near the ocean and the sound of the waves was wonderful. There was everything that we needed for cooking and BBQ. The condo was close to both swimming pools and BBQ areas. The cupboard with the boogie boards and extra beach items was great, we did use the beach chairs for a trip to Big Beach. We enjoyed a game of night golf on the grounds as well, what fun. It was a nice close walk to go to the nearby restaurants and of course happy hours. We really liked going to Java Jazz across the street at the shopping center. The grocery store was fully stocked with everything and then some.

Thanks to Jan and her family for letting us stay, and hopefully we can come and stay again.

Relaxing vacation for our 25th anniversary

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a 13 day vacation to Hawaii where we spent 8 nights in Maui at the Papakea Resort. The trip was for our 25th anniversary. Although my husband and I had been to Hawaii separately in the past, it was our first trip there together. The resort was just what we were looking for. It is not a huge resort and it didn’t feel crowded. Amenities like the pool, hot tub, and putting green were just great. We didn’t have kids with us, so not facing the pool was perfect for us. The guests were friendly. It was like a social event when the sun was setting – so many guests were out taking pictures and enjoying the view. The condo was perfect for us. The view and easy access to the ocean were fantastic. It was a joy to wake up in the morning and sit outside and drink our coffee. We cooked a lot of meals at home and used the available grills a few times, too. (There is a grocery store about 2 blocks from the resort. We walked there a few times to pick up additional items.) We felt the location of the resort was ideal – it was a 10 minute walk to Kaanapali Beach, very close to the smaller but nice Kapalua airport, very close to some shopping as well as an easy drive to Lahaina. We highly recommend it!
