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!!

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!

Great Maui Condo in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 adults stayed at this superb condo last week at the Papakea Resort. It was scrupulously clean, very comfortable, and stocked with everything you would need for a vacation home away from home. The ocean views from the corner windows are spectacular. The condo location is perfect for access to beaches in Kaanapali and Kapalua ... and easy access to old town Lahaina. We were extremely pleased with everything. Thank you Valarie for being so accommodating and helpful... We will be back!!!

Never wanted to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Your condo was absolutely amazing. We probably had about the best vacation we have ever been on. Our kids loved it too!!! You have kept your place so nice with everything done up so well and the views were to die for. It was very comfortable, clean and cozy! We really liked being in a corner unit, it made a huge difference from our last visit to the islands, staying in a condo. Thank you so much for your help Valarie, on the front end with booking. We sure appreciated your help and friendliness! We will definitely be back. Many, many thanks!!!

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our vacation in unit L401 at the Papakea Resort. The unit was perfectly appointed and had everything we needed. The unit was very clean and the views were beautiful. There is plenty of entertainment at the resort if you choose to take a day off from traveling, and the beach is right at you doorstep. We saw turtles right in front of the unit during a few mornings and another while snorkeling off the adjacent beach. Valarie was extremely accommodating and made our planning go smoothly. We highly recommend this resort and specifically this unit.

Great Ocean view Condo on Maui Northwest Shore

  • 5 of 5

My Wife, I, and our two young adult children had a great time on our first visit ever to Hawaii for a week. Unit L-401 is a great condo with fantastic ocean views from the balcony to the West and South, only 50 feet from the ocean! Condition and amenities of the condo were great and very clean. Only negative things I can say is the Wi-Fi would not work in the first floor master bedroom (was fine in living room & balcony) and if you didn't keep the blinds drawn in the afternoons it could get a little warm, though later in the evening it cooled down. It was low 80's in May for our visit. We used the living room air conditioner twice to cool it down. Papakea Resort has beautiful grounds and was a quiet place. Susan of the concierge resort office was a great help in arranging our outings for us and making any needed reservations. From the Property it's an easy 1-2 block walk to nearby markets, restaurants, and Snorkel Bob's rental shop where we got our rental snorkel gear. Our favorite activities were the snorkeling trip we did to Molokini Crater by the Pacific Whale Foundation; snorkeling twice on our own to Kapalua Bay, only 15 minute drive North where we saw lots of tropical fish and sea turtles; Tandem Para-sailing from Lahaina harbor by West Maui Parasail. Highly recommend unit L-401 at Papakea Resort and owners were a pleasure to deal with by phone and e-mail. Best vacation ever !

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review! Because of the beautiful big windows and panoramic views, during the afternoon it might be good idea to close the blinds on the warmer days, depending on where the sun shines. :). That's what we do while we are there, and then open them wide for the mornings and the evenings to watch the sunsets and sunrises! We are also getting a brand new "Dual Zone" AC in Sept 2015, so it will keep the whole condo nice and cool! The WiFi hasn't really been a problem for us. We are so happy you had a nice trip to our little piece of Paradise! Again, thank you!!
