2 Bedroom Renovated Oceanview - Steps to the Pool and Ocean

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

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

FABULOUS LOCATION - Just 50 steps to the pool, the hot tub and the BBQ’s and 100 steps to the ocean-front lounge chairs. Grab a cool drink and head out to watch the sun set between Molokai and Lanai. Bring your binoculars for excellent whale watching December to May or use the ones we supply in the condo.

CONVENIENT - Papakea Resort enjoys an outstanding Maui site and our unit is one of the very best locations within the complex. While some people may initially prefer a higher unit hoping for a view, our ground floor unit offers a number of advantages; the convenience of not climbing stairs several times a day, the ability to go out your lanai door directly to the pool and ocean instead of a trip around the back of the building. The ease of access to the BBQ’s means your food stays hot on the way back to your lanai. Once people try our unit, they seldom go back to a balcony property.

TOP QUALITY - Units in Papakea vary widely in condition. They range from some units that haven’t been updated since the 80’s, to ours which was totally renovated in June 2010 using top quality materials and fixtures.

• Tile floors throughout for a cool, clean, easy-care environment.

• New cabinets in kitchen and bathrooms of African mahogany accented with exotic Jarra wood. Granite counter tops complete the executive look and feeling of quality.

• New stove, dishwasher, microwave, washer and dryer in June 2010. Most small appliances replaced at the same time. Kitchen is fully equipped with all the cutlery, gadgets and tools you need to feel right at home.

• Entertainment center features a large flat screen LCD TV, a Sony PlayStation 3 for DVD movies and games and a CD player with iPod dock for your music. Each bedroom also has a TV.

• Master suite features a king bed, large vanity with double sinks, a large tiled shower with double shower heads and a high tech “washlet” style toilet popular in upper-class Japanese households.

• Latest technology zone air conditioning. Most Papakea units that have A/C have a single window style unit in the living room (50% of Maui oceanfront condos have none). Our new style allows each bedroom and the living room/kitchen to be cooled independently. This not only saves on the environment by allowing less use of the A/C but ensures you can quickly cool your sleeping area for a good nights rest.

• Second bedroom features a queen bed (mattress new in June 2010) plus a twin. Washroom has a new tiled shower and vessel style sink.

• Free wireless internet access throughout the resort.

PEACEFUL AND BEAUTIFUL - Papakea is a quiet, well-maintained, family friendly resort that offers the peaceful beauty and an oceanfront location that is the reason people come to Hawaii. Major food store, restaurants and most of the services you want on holidays are within walking distance. Lahaina town is a short drive away with the shops and restaurants of Whalers Village half way between.

ACTIVITIES - Lots to do in and around Papakea. The resort features lighted tennis courts for guest use, a large well maintained putting green in the central park area right outside your door and various pool and exercise activities such as yoga and fitness instruction in the pool area. Tour arrangements can be made with on-site staff.

About The Owner

We are a group of people that love travel and have joined together to share vacation property around the world. We take pride in keeping our vacation homes comfortable and well equipped, not only for our personal use but our friends, family and renting guests.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Maui

The low-rise buildings and lush, well maintained gardens of Papakea attracted us immediately. Only after staying here did we realize how convenient the location is to Lahaina, golf and restaurants. On vacation we appreciate the quiet, relaxing and secure ambience of Papakea and as owners we appreciate how well the property is looked after by everyone.

What makes this condo unique

At first we were looking for a high balcony location for the view, but after staying in the groundfloor unit we loved the convenience and quick access to all facilities. We like to travel with friends so the two bathrooms mean each couple has privacy and convenience. Papakea is so peaceful and relaxing, but lots of activities and excitement to be found around Maui.

Ground floor location unbeatableed

  • 5 of 5

After 24 hours of travel, we were immediately at ease when we stepped in to the apartment. It was fantastically equipped with everything we needed, from the coffee machine to the sporting equipment. The owners are spot on about a ground floor unit - it made the resort amenities so accessible and usable, with resort barbecues just a stone-throw away we were able to enjoy evening bbq meals on the lanai - it'd be hard to go back to a non-ground floor apartment in a resort style setup such as Papakea. The apartment really helped make our visit to Maui memorable. Highly recommend.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in the perfect location on Maui. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! This is a great property! We were so grateful for the bedroom a/c as the famous trade winds were uncharacterisitcally non existent the week we were there! It made for very calm waters but very warm and humid nights. We loved the grassy areas right up to the beach wall. I want to bring my grand kids back to this spot!

Owner's Response: I appreciate the kind words on our property but appreciate even more having such a great guest. Mr. K. took time to advise me on some minor issues he found in the condo and completed a couple of small repairs himself. Taking care of someones else's property like it was your own makes a better experience for everyone. Thanks Scott. We look forward to having you back!

This Unit Rates an Ono!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with three long time friends. First time on Maui for 2 of us. The condo was exactly as described and much nicer than some of the other units we looked at in the complex - we even gave the owners contact info to other families we met in the complex. All the amenities we needed. Loved being on the ground floor for easy access to the BBQ, beach and boardwalk. The location of the unit meant the lanai was nicely shaded for most of the day and the sunsets were fabulous to watch. The whole property was well-maintained and secure. Close [walk or drive] to the many great beaches in Kaanapali and Napili. Would stay here again.

Awesome time at Papakea!!

  • 5 of 5

The vacation we just had at Papakea Resort in this unit in Maui was excellent for our family. We have two young children ages 6 and 8. The condo is very spacious, it was great having two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The photos say all as it is a beautiful unit. Having the washer/dryer and of course the dishwasher were very useful. After being used to all-inclusives I wasn't sure how I would feel about making our own meals. I have to say that it was a really nice change. Cereal, toast and coffee on the lanai in the morning, sandwiches at lunch, and bbq's so close by made supper cooking a breeze and actually enjoyable to cook and hang out by the pool. Which leads me to how amazing this place is for kids. Loved the ground floor location, just steps away to the pool and the kids loved the fish pond and golfing right off the lanai. The pool was really warm, we spent three days just hanging there because the kids had such a great time and made friends with other kids in the resort. They would spend nearly the whole day in the pool!! The water aerobics and yogalates in the morning were also a great activity to enjoy while looking at the ocean. Nothing beat our morning view, having a cup of coffee on the lanai with a book was so relaxing. I think the location of this unit was just perfect and I couldn't have asked for better. The beach walk which is just steps away from the property were so beautiful, go for a sunset walk with your shoes in hand and toes in the ocean, it is hard to compare any other place we have ever been to the beauty of that. The gardens at the resort were clean and perfectly manicured. The resort location was great as well, the kids loved eating at Bubba Gump's at nearby Lahaina, also playing at Kapalua beach(not far), and the beaches farther away near Kihei were also really good for the kids. The sand is beautiful at all the beaches. We went to the Luau "Drums of the Pacific" and the kids really enjoyed the fire dancing. I would recommend a convertible rental as well, tons of fun and the ocean drives are so beautiful. Everyone was very helpful with any questions that i had and the security at the resort was excellent, when we lost the keys to our rental car they even helped us search, which was above and beyond customer service. I would highly recommend this unit to family and friends and appreciate that we got the chance to have a dream vacation in it.
