Ocean front 1 Bedroom condo in desired F building in Papakea Resort in Maui HI

Bedrooms 1
Space 598 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 nights


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 with a brand new mattress and a brand new 8 inch mattress in the 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. New stainless steel appliances put in 2016 and new washer/dryer put in 2017. Whole unit freshly painted

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 Lahaina

My parents bought this property over 40 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.

Beautifully maintained condo in an idyllic location

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough to stay at this Papakea condo for just over a week. The condo itself is decorated beautifully, clean, updated, and super comfortable. We were particularly impressed with the quality of the sofa bed mattress and the master bed was very comfortable as well. The location and view is unparalleled, the lanai is just steps away from the ocean, with a lovely view of Molokai framed by palm trees. We saw whales several times, many gorgeous rainbows, and the sunsets are amazing. The resort is well maintained and the staff and other guests were very friendly. If you are looking for a west Maui location with a homier feel than the high rise resorts, this is an ideal option. The owner was incredibly responsive and easy to work with. A traditional grocery store and farmers market/natural grocery store are within easy walking distance. The only "negative" depending on what you are looking for is that there is not direct beach access (at least in winter), during our stay the ocean was too wild to feel safe entering it at this location for swimming or snorkeling. BUT, there are multiple great beach access points within a very short drive or longish walk, we were on the beach within minutes each morning. And we felt the location, view, and overall experience at this condo were far superior to other places we've stayed that have slightly closer beach access. We have stayed in many different condos in Maui and this one will now be at the top of our list for a return visit!!

Beautiful ocean-front Papakea condo-Nice, Nice, Nice

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this beautiful ocean-front condo thru the Labor Day holiday. The condo is upgraded in all respects. Countertops, cabinets, bathroom, shower, appliances, paint, etc. ...and it's steps to the ocean!

The owner is very cooperative and nice to deal with.

Comfortable bed and sofa. Kitchen and bathroom have everything you need. Washer& dryer included. A+ and recommended.

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
