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 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 Maui

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!!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Happy New year to you

Just wanted to wish you the best for 2017.

We also wanted to say that your condo met and exceeded our expectations during our stay in November. The staff in the complex were very accomodating and helpful in organizing our events and excursions.

Thanks again for a great stay

Best regards

Exceptional experience.

We loved our stay at this beautiful condo. We will definiitly want to return. It was immaculate, had everything we needed as far as cooking utensils, beach gear, linens etc. The rooms were spacious, the beds were comfortable, the decor was perfect for an island get away. The view was stunning. We give this a 5 star rating for sure!

Walked in and the view was breathtaking!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the most comfortable, enjoyable, pleasant vacation we have had in years. The view from the fourth floor is stunning. The calmness of the mornings are soothing to the soul. The sound of the waves and the sun coming from the east rising up over the mountains behind the resort is like nothing we have ever experienced. Reminiscing about that first cup of coffee on the lanai after waking up to the and sounds of the waves is something we will definitely want to come back to. The condo itself is fully equipped, and the owners have done a great job in providing everything one would need. The air-conditioners work perfectly, and the sleeping arrangements Wete just what we needed. We were two couples with one grandchild and we were very comfortable. We would highly recommend this condo for anyone who just wants to get away from it all. The owners were extremely nice to work with and very accommodating. Can't wait to return!!

Million Dollar View & Cozy Family Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Our overall stay at this unit L401 at the Papakea Resort was lovely! With 2 adults and a toddler, this rental was more than enough space for the 3 of us! We could have easily invited another family to join us. The panoramic view of the ocean from a higher level allowed for unsurpassed whale watching in January 2017. We loved sitting on the balcony watching ocean activities as the waves rolled in. Having previously stayed in an oceanfront condo close to this area, we anticipated hearing the crashing waves at night. Luckily, the master bedroom is further from the ocean and provided a quieter environment to sleep in. Our toddler slept on the small cot upstairs and we used the baby gate at night to block off the stairs. The condo was home-y with an island vibe, well-equipped with beach gear, kids toys, putters/golf balls to use at the on-site greens, kitchen essentials, dry goods & spices, books, games, towels, etc. The resort was well-kept, provided some fun daily activities, and my son loved watching the fish in the ponds! A few items that could use some improvement include: the upstairs loft bedroom & bathroom are dated and show wear; main floor sofa-bed was worn and cushions did not stay in place when sitting on it, the blender leaked due to a missing ring seal, the master bed wasn't the most comfortable mattress I've slept on; unsuspected seawall construction on-resort was both seen and heard from the condo - it created excess noise and ruined the view from the pool; we were also disappointed with the lack of beach at the resort, but we ended making a couple of outings to drive to a beach. Overall though, these items are fairly minor or temporary (although we wish we'd known about construction ahead of time) in comparison to the value of the view, the spacious accommodations with vaulted ceilings that minimize the condo feel, air conditioning to keep you comfortable while indoors, and a well-stocked vacation space. We enjoyed our stay thoroughly, felt at home in the space, and treated it with respect as the guests we were in a cherished family getaway property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review!!! Funny thing you mentioned the couch! We have an interior decorator coming this week to find us a new sofa bed with tropical designs and we will make sure it is comfy and cozy! As far as the sea wall construction, that work was finished in front of our building some time ago. It will be 100% complete for the remainder of the resort very soon. This work was supposed to have been completed by now. We are sorry that the noise in front of the pool affected you. Due to a couple of delays, the work lasted a little longer than we planned for. However we are happy that you enjoyed the view from our condo & lanai! This is something we always miss when we are not there! Also wanted to mention the beach... from our experience the sand comes and goes with the tides. We are glad you mentioned that those items were minor and temporary.....and that you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for the well written review!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I absolutely LOVED this unit and resort. We will be back! If you want to get away from the mega resorts and crowds, Papakea is your spot. The view from Valarie and Trent's corner, top-floor unit is unreal. If you've ever experienced a veranda room on a cruise ship, that's exactly what the view is like from their lanai. The ocean is right below you with picturesque views of the neighboring islands of Molokai and Lanai, and rainbows in between. We even spotted some turtles! Mornings on the lanai with fresh fruit from the farmer's market down the road, coffee in a tiki mug, tropical air, and trade winds can't be beat. The sunsets are gorgeous. As most of the guests make their way to the grassy area to take pictures as the sun sets, you'll be comfortably spoiled taking pictures from your private lanai high above everyone else. The unit has everything you need, including the most gracious owners. If you book, know I will be jealous. Aloha!

Had a wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from a fabulous week in Maui where we stayed at this wonderful condo at the Papkea Resort. As others have stated, the condo was clean, comfortable, and well stocked (except for chip bag clips :-)). The ocean views were amazing and the resort amenities (gas grills, heated pool, putting green, and shuffle board) were perfect. The condo location is ideal as traffic was light and we were minutes away from Kahekili beach, Napili Bay, and Kapalua Bay where we enjoyed the beaches and snorkeled for hours. On our last day, we spent the afternoon snorkeling at Kapalua Bay and saw no less than 12 sea turtles. When standing on the beach facing the water, the turtles were swimming in the shallower water all along the left side. Be careful not to venture past the point as the currents can be quite strong. At Kahekili beach, we found heading north or right from the shore (towards the Westin) was the best for snorkeling and before 12 noon before the winds picked up. Can also recommend the Fish Market restaurant (walking distance from resort and closes at 7PM), Kapalua Zip Lines (7 line tour), and Blue Water Rafting for their Molokini Express 2 hour snorkeling trip.

Valarie was very easy to work with and was very responsive to my emails before and during our stay. Would definitely stay here again and have no reservations about recommending this condo. Thanks again Valarie!
