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....relax/whale watch from our lanai/golf/swim/sight see 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 sunrises and 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 Lahaina
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 2018 to keep each room in the and condo real cool!!
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Our stay here was absolutely wonderful. The unit on the end of the top floor is in the very best one on the entire Papakea Resort property. The unit is located in a low-key resort that offers great amenities and activities. The property is well-maintained, the unit is well-equipped, the beds are very comfortable, and the view from the unit is even better than provided photos reflect. The Papakea Resort is nicely located on the northern, and bit less fancy and expensive, end of the Kaanapali shoreline area. We absolutely loved it and will likely come back here again. There were a few minor things that we would fix or improve in the unit: providing more comfortable and expansive seating for lounging or watching a movie in the main living room area; fixing the ceiling fan and/or on/off switch for the ceiling fan in the upstairs bedroom; and providing more comfortable lounging chairs on the balcony - but these are very minor and not the least bit detracting from the 5 star quality of this property. We would not hesitate to highly recommend this property.
Over and Beyond
The only way to review this property is to say Over and Beyond anything we could have expected or ask for. The condo is beautifully decorated and well stocked with any item you could possibly need during your stay. The resort is wonderful, you will not find a friendlier workers as well as a spotless and relaxing place. The view is spectactular. Highly recommend this condo and resort.
We had a great stay! The location was excellent. We had an amazing view of ocean.
Fantastic views and great location
Spent a week with friends and it was great. Great resort with very friendly staff. amazing views and access to all things fun.
We had a great time! Wish we had a little more pool time with sun. The rain kind of put a damper on
We enjoyed the condo. Everything thing was good except the upstairs ceiling fan did not work. It’s a nice location in Maui. We did see a lot of whale activity from our lanai!
Glad you had a great time! The whales are amazing and we love the views from our lanai as well!! Thankfully we have air conditioning units in each room in the event something like a fan stops working. Guests are always encouraged to call us if they have a problem. This is why I send each guest our card, we are just a phone call away and very conscientious to respond quickly and efficiently. As popular as our condo is, things are bound to happen, however our maintenance crew is excellent and quick to get things fixed or replaced. Mahalo!!
We love Papakea unit L401.
AC and ceiling fans keep this condo cool when it's 87 degrees outside. We've enjoyed and participated in the amenities of the resort. Highly recommend swimmercize in the pool.
This unit has everything we needed for a relaxing vacation. Located perfectly next to a "sister" property that has a full service restaurant and shops. A short jaunt into Lahaina for shopping and more food choices. Safeway grocery available in Lahaina and "Times" grocery across street from condo. Easy. We will return.
Thank you so much for this nice review! We are so glad you were able to make it after all, and would love to host you anytime down the road! Hoping your memories of your stay will be a blessing to you! Aloha!
