Property type condo
Minimum Stay 1 - 5 nights


About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

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 by clicking on the two links below, located under View Calendar and Email Owner. Make sure you watch the Video as well.

This newly 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 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 hair dryer and 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, hair dryer and a smaller closet.

We thoughtfully designed the penthouse/loft area to be family friendly that could sleep 6-7 people. Perfect for families with kids, this loft area has one queen sized bed and one bunk bed (double bed below, single bed up top) as well as an attached den/TV room which comes complete with a 32' flat screen HD TV and Blue Ray DVD player. The couch in the den is yet another sleeping area and pulls out to be a double hide-a-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 42' flat screen HD 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 little extra's and have placed them all around, such as a second wine/beverage fridge, beach mats, beach towels, cooler, beach umbrella, playpen, high chair and iPod docking station/clock radios in each bedroom.

The condo is situated so that when you are in the kitchen, your view out the lanai doors 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 new 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.

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!

Beautiful property. Personal touches perfect for a large family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed and more for a wonderful vacation. Steps from the beach, quick walks to a park and shops, and the most beautiful view right out the lanai. The condo was updated, stocked full of everything we needed to make the condo our home for the week, and it was so clean! Would happily recommend this condo at the Papakea! Thanks so much for a great experience!

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.

Great fun for family

  • 5 of 5

Aug 1 thru 15 2017

Our family stay at your home in Maui was wonderful, we had 6 adults and 3 children.

My son cooked meals for the family, and he said he had everything he needed.

My granddaughter wanted waffles, so we bought a waffle maker for the house.

we liked to be in the ocean so we bought Water Recliners, left 2 they were a lot

of fun.

We sat out on the lanai, had drinks and drank wine,the view of the grounds and

the ocean were great.

The whole trip was great, to begin with a great place to stay.

The only thing that was a problem the ceiling fan in the master bedroom had

a clicking sound when on all speeds.

Other than the fan your home in Maui was OUTSTANDING.
