About Valarie and Trent
We are from northern California and always wanted a vacation home on the ocean. It is the perfect place to just get away and relax....golf/swim/and do whatever you like! We also liked this property for our children and friends to visit, as it offers something for everyone. We especially enjoy the 'Aloha' spirit and the friendliness of the island people. Our favorite thing about the condo are the unobstructed views and beautiful sunsets! Please remember to view our video on this website! Aloha, and enjoy your vacation in beautiful Maui!
Valarie and Trent purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Valarie and Trent chose Kaanapali
The first time we visited this condo, we were in awe of the beautiful views and the amenities. We liked all of the upgrades, which made it very comfortable and enjoyable. The view off the Lanai is so incredible, and the sound of the waves is soothing. It is very conveniently located in an area where you can walk to local restaurants, shop for groceries and visit other resorts. Kanapali golf course is 2 miles south and the Kapalua golf course is 5 miles to the north, where you can find world class dining and breath taking views. Lahaina is 8 minutes to the south and always a fun place to go for shopping/dining. Swimming, surfing and snorkeling right out your back door. Big green sea turtles year round, and seasonal whale watching during the winter months even from the Lanai. Amazingly you can even see the whales breech!
What makes this Condo unique
Newly purchased 2 flat screen TV's in the condo, DVD player, Stereo & I-Pod for your music, fully appointed kitchen, putting greens, 2 swimming pools and spas, shuffleboard, tennis courts, Koi ponds, gardens, and an activities coordinator at the front desk to help you plan all of your activities. It is so nice to barbeque right down around the pool area..Another great thing about the condo is that we are a top floor corner unit, so we have a private Lania with wrap around views! We love the ocean front setting with unobstructed views of crashing waves, and the islands of Molokai and Lanai. You can stroll south along the beach for miles and or hop on the Boardwalk to Whaler's Village. News!!! We installed a brand tri- zone AC in 2016 to keep each room in the and condo real cool!!

Papakea is a beautiful resort property!
We loved our stay in unit L401. The view from the condo was more spectacular in person. The condo was clean and very comfortable. When not sightseeing, we spent most of our time on the lanai enjoying the sound of the surf. I highly recommend this unit and hope to rent it again.
Thank you so much for your nice review! We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay!! You are welcome to return to our "beloved" home away from home in the future! Mahalo!!
You could not ask for more for your Hawaiin vacation! This condo has everything you could need within walking distance. There are 2 coffee shops, plenty of restaurants, a grocery store and gift shops close by. It is located directly between Lahaina and great snorkeling/body surfing beaches. You can rent beach chairs, snorkeling gear, boogie boards and more from the concierge. She is wonderful, patient and knowledgeable. There is an introductory breakfast hosted by the concierge the morning after you check in. Don’t get too caught up in the hype of all the things you can do. I left a book called ‘Maui Revealed’ in the condo but it would be helpful to pick it up before your trip. It has a TON of information. You can walk to the fancy resorts nearby for cocktails and a walk on their boardwalk and beaches.
Now to the condo! It is fabulous! If you are temperature conscious as I am you will love the cooling systems that are in each area of the house that are controlled individually. I have hot flashes all night long and with a remote am able to turn the air conditioning on and off with out getting out of bed! The loft is private enough for you to feel it is a master suite. Loved the double sinks in the main bathroom and the shower was heavenly! Everything felt new and clean. There are plenty of towels for the bathrooms and pool. We brought our own beach towels. Great to be able to wash or just dry them at night. The lanai was my favorite spot! I spent every moment I could there. The first morning we woke up to the moon setting! And then the skies as the sun rose....heavenly.
You will never find a complex that is as well cared for as Papakea. The grounds are impeccable! Plenty of parking since you will need a car to get from the airport to the condo and for all your adventures! It never feels overrun or crowded. One thing I really appreciated was that there are plenty of people that spend months there and genuinely reach out to the weekly renters.
Last but not at all least....Valerie. Your contact and owner. I just wish that she and I were neighbors.
We just returned from a week long stay at condo L401 with a party of five, 3 adults and 2 kids. As previous reviews have stated, the views are simply stunning. You are literally feet away from the ocean. The condo has everything you need to make yourself at home. The appliances were spotless and appeared to be virtually brand new. We enjoyed ourselves immensely and would recommend this unit to anyone wanting that Maui oceanfront experience. Valarie was amazing to work with! She was very quick to respond to any questions I had. There was a crazy storm that came through while we were there with 5 inches of rain and the entire island of Maui lost power. We were able to take our food down and use the grills provided around the pools to cook, another bonus of the resort we had not anticipated:) All in all, a wonderful experience and we look forward to returning!
Thank you so much! We are so very glad you enjoyed your stay and welcome you back anytime!! Mahola!!!
Dream trip made reality
This is basically the penthouse! It is the absolutle best spot at the condos! We enjoyed amazing sunsets every evening and woke to beautiful rainbows most mornings. Peaceful and relaxing, all the comforts of home but in paradise! We enjoyed walking down to neighboring resorts for happy hour, many afternoons snorkeling in the calm waters just footsteps from the property. We loved the friendly atmosphere as you come and go from Papakea. The best though, as we were sadly packing the car to leave, a gentleman approached us and asked if we were headed to the airport (maybe it was the slumped shoulders and down faces that gave it away!), he asked us to wait while he ran off. He came back with two fresh leis and said "This is how we say goodbye, aloha style". Ugh, brings me to tears! So so wonderful and really can't wait to get back here! If you are considering, I urge you- just book it! You won't regret it!!!
Thank you so much for this heartfelt review! We are so glad that you had a nice time at our condo, it sounds like you love it as much as we do!! We hope you will be able to return, and look forward to helping you book the property in the future! !
Clean and comfortable with lots of room and a fabulous view.
We go out of our way to book this unit. It is our 5th time staying here and intend to return as soon as possible. The owners do a great job maintaining the property with frequent updates including comfortable beds and newer appliances. The unit is close to many amenities including the beach, shopping, and restaurants. The view from the balcony will take your breath away!
Great value! Very nice condo.
The condo is very nice with everything anyone could ask for. Clean and comfortable. Ocean front location. Nice views. Very nice grounds and pools. Poolside gas bbq's and a washer & dryer were a real bonus. The refrigerator looked brand new. I would recommend this place to both families and adults.
Thank you very much! We are so glad you had a nice stay and appreciate your review! Mahalo!
