Extreme Makeover - Now A Fabulous Penthouse Show Suite

Property type condo

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Bonus Room, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

In 2010, renowned local 'renovator-extraordinaire', Bob Marshall completed a top to bottom renovation and the results are in.

It has gone from 'drab to Fab'!

Check out all the pictures in the gallery and make sure you watch till the end as that is where you will also find a video; situated at the end of all the photos in the gallery.

This recently renovated condo has had an 'out with the old, in with the new' extreme makeover. Everything was stripped to the walls and has been transformed into a modern and gorgeous home. With the renovations came new furniture, appliances, electronics, linens and newly stocked kitchen. There's simply too much to list.

The custom kitchen has stainless steel appliances and fine features such as glass tile back splash and granite countertops. All bathrooms are also all new throughout with new sinks, toilets, showers, tubs and towels. Bedrooms have also been updated with new furniture, mattresses and high thread count linens throughout.

The master bedroom has a king size bed and 32' flat screen HD TV, with adjoining en-suite complete with double sinks, tub and shower. It is also equipped with a very large closet.

The second bedroom on the lower level has a queen size bed and 32' flat screen HD TV. This bedroom adjoins to the main bathroom, which also has double sinks, a shower and a smaller closet.

We thoughtfully designed the penthouse/loft area to be family friendly that could sleep up to 8 people. Perfect for families with kids, this loft area has one queen sized bed and a couch that can pull out to be a double hide-a-bed. In the back bonus room is yet another sleeping area with a queen and full bed. The loft also has it's own third bathroom with a single sink and shower as well.

There are thoughtful accents, hand picked and placed by our professional interior designer throughout the entire condo, from visually pleasing lights (check out the green mango leaf lamp shades and fun coral lamps) to fine features such as bamboo flooring, plantation style and shaker style cabinet doors and original artwork. The living room also has a 50" Smart TV and a comfortable seating area perfect for visiting or just lounging around.

Designed with functional comforts such as a new tri zone air conditioning system and new ceiling fans coupled with the visual appeal of what feels like a brand new show home with too many new and wonderful features to list.

We love to cook ourselves so you will find a fully stocked kitchen complete with some "pay it forward" items such as condiments and spices, left from previous guests. You will also find a number of barbeques poolside available to you on a first come, first service basis.

We love little extra's and have placed them all around, such as a second wine/beverage fridge, an ample supply of beach towels, hair dryers, an iPod docking station/clock radios in each bedroom and for those with small children; a play pen and a high chair.

There is a “Fun Cupboard” so please help yourself to anything in the closet next to the bar fridge in the front room. It’s a push door so “push” to pop it open. We like to call this the “Fun Cupboard” because we never know what is in there as it can change. We have left things for you to enjoy and other guests have done the same. Could be things such as coolers, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, boogie boards, snorkel masks and fins, golf clubs and balls for the mini putt and various sand toys. Enjoy!

We have also provided a starter set of the following items to help you get settled in:

• Paper Towels

• Toilet Paper

• Liquid Dish Soap

• Liquid Hand Soap

• Dishwasher Pods

• Laundry Pods

• Kitchen Trash Bags

The condo is situated so that when you are in the kitchen, your view out the lanai (balcony) is a straight on shot of the ocean. It's a spectacular way of waking up in the morning and what a breathtaking view to cook a meal with.

One of our favorite things to do is to wake up and enjoy some Kona coffee on the lanai every morning or then enjoy some 'pupus' (that's Hawaiian hors d'oeuvres) in the afternoon. With the gorgeous and comfortable outdoor furniture, we guarantee it will be one of your favorite things to do as well.

Our condo is thoughtfully intended to be 'spa like' with hints of island paradise accents all around you making it so warm and inviting. We've designed our 'little piece of Heaven' to be enjoyed by families or couples just wanting to get away to their own private oasis and with your rest and relaxation in mind.

When it comes to things to do while you're here, there is an orientation session in the Cabana building next to the pool each morning that will welcome you and tell you all the fun things available to you while you’re here, so make sure you take that in.

There is also an onsite Expedia representative in the Papakea main building and they can coordinate a wide array of island adventures for you. Anything from bicycling down a volcano, zip lining in a rain forest, learning how to surf, horseback riding, scuba diving, whale watching, parasailing, snorkel tours on or around the island and much, much more. There is simply so much to see and do and the Expedia representative can make recommendations and take care of all the details for you.

The calendar indicating what's available and when, is up to date (click 'View Calendar' on the top right) and all of the rate details are posted below.

We would like to welcome you. Our home is your home and welcome home!

About Tim Goshulak

Welcome to our Home!

We are Greg and Ronda, Brenda and Tim; 2 couples that have been friends for a very long time. In fact, Greg and Tim are business partners of Living Sounds Hearing Centre in Alberta and we've had the great fortune of working and traveling the world together for quite some time now.

Of all the places we've experienced in our travels for us, Maui is something very special. From the moment you step off the plane, smell the exotic flowers, feel the warm breeze on your face and take in all the beauty the island has to offer, you will be hooked just like we were. It's a magical, unforgettable piece of paradise.

As couples, we enjoy time with our kids, fun with our friends and the finer things in life.

We have been coming to Maui for years and staying in Papakea is really special. It doesn't give you that 'staying in a hotel' feel but rather, more like it's your own private Oasis, and your home away from home.

We've taken the time to create a beautiful sanctuary in our Maui home and we hope that you will love it as much as we do. Cheers!

Perfect Family Get - A - Way :-)

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully remodeled condo has every amenity you need for a fantastic family vacation. Mom and Dad in the master, honeymooners in the front bedroom (with attached bathrooms on both bedrooms) and the loft was ideal for my daughter and her family. Everyone had their own bathroom, plenty of space and privacy for each family. The kitchen was fully stocked right down to the plastic wrap, aluminum foil, BBQ utensils, spices and other kitchen necessities. The full size washer/dryer was a big plus (they even supplied the pods for the washer :-) The lanai was furnished with some comfy chairs and a high table to enjoy the view and family time. The condo was beautifully decorated in a beach theme. There is a "fun cupboard" equipped with snorkels, boogie boards, beach chairs, baby floaties, even suntan lotion....everything you need for the beach. They even supplied plenty of beach towels.

We've been coming to Hawaii for over 30 years and this condo is the nicest place that we have stayed at. Tim, the owner, was a delight to work with and Iook forward to a return visit.

As wonderful as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

It is surprising how calm you can be while under a nuclear attack! Of course, receiving an emergency broadcast notice while you are with your amazing family, looking out over the Pacific from the lanai of this terrific property, after enjoying a spectacular week of fun, adventure, sun and natural beauty, does help keep things in perspective! From the welcoming flowers and wine to the tasteful, modern decor, terrific location and gorgeous views, we had an excellent experience (except for the missile false alarm). There was plenty of room for the seven adult members of our family in the three plus bedrooms. The modern, well stocked kitchen met all of our food preparation needs. The beds, bedding and towels were all in excellent condition. The built-in wine and beer cooler was put to good use during our stay and, of course, the lanai was in constant use, soaking up the beautiful views. We also appreciated the beach chairs and equipment provided. We took full advantage of the well kept Papakea Resort grounds and amenities including the grills. While we missed not being able to walk directly onto the beach from Papakea, the 10 minute walk to beach access was easy and we discovered the pleasures of lounging along the Papakea sea wall without having to deal with the sand cleanup. Supermarket and shops were an easy walk. The condo is located close to Rt. 30 avoiding any local small road jam ups. We also appreciated the detailed notes and advice provided by the owners in advance of our trip. Tim was easy to deal with in regard to the business end of things. All in all a great vacation home that we highly recommend!

Owner's Response: What an awesome recap of your vacation! It sounded perfect (well...except for that whole missile false alarm thing. That was utterly crazy; we were getting alerts on our phones as well. So sorry you had to experience that unfortunate incident). We appreciate all of your amazing feedback and the time it took to provide it. So grateful to be part of your fabulous vacation and we look forward to seeing you again soon. Mahalo!

Wonderful condo in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was the perfect accommodations for our recent vacation in Maui. We had six in our group and it was prefect for each couple to have their own bedroom with a private bath. The condo was equipped with everything we needed for a great experience. Each morning started with kona coffee on the balcony. We enjoyed overlooking the beautiful grounds and the ocean beyond. Most of our days were spent at the pool and relaxing in the lounge chairs on the lawn near the seawall. We loved hearing the ocean waves break against the wall, watching the passing boats, and enjoying the great view of Lanai and Molokai. The location of the condo is wonderful. We were able to walk to Times grocery and the ABC store for all our needs. Breakfasts were within walking distance. The kitchen in the condo was very well equipped and there were gas grills available at the pool, but we ventured out to the great restaurants in the area (we ate several dinners at Dukes). During our stay we snorkeled at nearby beaches, took a daytrip to Pearl Harbor, journeyed the road to Hana, enjoyed a sunset cruise, attended a luau, and explored the stores along Front Street in Lahaina. We saw many rainbows during our stay including a rainbow to greet us on the mountain side when we arrived and another over the ocean on our final morning (good sign we are meant to return). With the great amenities offered at the condo in Papakea Resort and the super location we certainly hope to return in the future.
