Overview

Lahaina Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

FROM THE MOMENT YOU ENTER you will be surrounded by the spirit of Aloha. The first impression is from the large mirror in the dining area which reflects your initial glimpse of the Pacific Ocean and the island of Molokai. As you walk through the entry hall on the designer tile floor, your eyes are drawn to the manicured grounds including tranquil koi ponds as you again soak up the beauty of the ocean view. You can envision yourself cooking in the gourmet kitchen with granite counters, new custom maple cabinetry, new stainless steel appliances, and kitchen 'toys' ranging from coffee grinder to NINJA blender, and then realize that this will be your home for the days to come.

From the designer Granite to the new BOSCH Washer and Dryer (2012), BOSCH dishwasher (2014) top of the line designer sleeper sofa, 2 new LCD flat screen (2013), new original artwork, new window treatments in living room and master bedroom (2012) second bedroom (new in 2014) to the NINJA blender and coffee grinder, we have tried to attend to every detail. There is an AM/FM/CD player WITH Iphone/Ipod dock and charging unit in the home as well as two flat screen remote control televisions new 2012) with satelite TV, one in the living area and one located in the master bedroom. Built in Hairdryers in both bathrooms. A major amenity appreciated by our guests is the BOSCH washer and dryer conveniently located in the entry way closet between the two bedrooms for our guests as well as free wireless high speed internet. Both bedrooms are on the same floor. For your added comfort, there are ceiling fans in the living area as well as in both bedrooms in addition to air-conditioning (new split system w/remote control installed 2013). Both bedrooms are carpeted (new 2014).

Papakea is unlike any other resort on the island of Maui. With 13 acres, the Papakea resort is the lowest density condominium project on the island. From the beautiful blue ocean to the lush manicured grounds, Papakea unique when compared to any other property. Grocery shopping is conveniently located directly across the street, and the charming town of Lahaina is only a short 10 minute drive. A few of the amenities on the property include 2 shuffleboards, 3 lighted tennis courts, 2 twelve hole putting greens, 2 pools, 2 whirlpool spas, 12 outdoor barbeque's and 2 beach cabanas. There is plenty of room for the kids to play outside of this convenient ground floor unit, take a stroll from the lanai to see the beautiful koi just feet away or relax with putting greens right outside your lanai door. If it is your desire to lounge on the sand or on the grass next to the ocean, you are only about 50 steps away!

Our home at J-102 of the Papakea resort means far more to us than just a rental. It is our second home that we have grown to love and appreciate. We have also tried to pay attention to every detail and hope that our guests will enjoy our efforts. Our Papakea home has been completely remodeled including granite counter tops and new custom cabinetry in the kitchen and both bathrooms, natural stone accents in both bathrooms, stainless steel appliances, new split air-conditioning system, designer fixtures, under counter and under toe lighting, a full size dishwasher and refrigerator with automatic ice maker, mirrored closets with loads of storage, tiled floors in the living areas, and plush carpet in the bedrooms (new 2014).

We would love to share with you some of our local favorite places to see and favorite things to do (not to mention some of the greatest restaurants). You will receive this information by email once your reservation is received.

Mahalo for considering a visit to our wonderful home as we truly believe Maui No Ka'Oi (Maui is the best)!

About The Owner

Our primary residence is in Yorba Linda, California. We visit our home in Maui as often as we are able and make every effort to make our guests feel as much at home as we do. We are primarily retired but Mary works part time as a director of Volunteers for a social services agency and Kim produces short movie clips for non-profit organizations. We have truly come to love our Maui home at Papakea and hope that our guests will feel the same way.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why The Owner chose Lahaina

Sitting on nearly 13 beautiful acres, Papakea stood out far and away from other developments in the Kaanapali area. We love the low density, the quiet atmosphere, the feeling of community and the amenities that make us feel on vacation and at home all at the same time. It seems easy to either meet new friends or socialize with old friends simply cooking at the barbeque or just soaking up the magnificent sunset views at the edge of the beach.

What makes this condo unique

Our favorite times at Papakea are having coffee on the beach early in the morning and those famous Maui sunsets and sharing those times with neighbors, friends and visitors. It is great being close to everything including shopping and some of the worlds finest restaurants. We also look forward to our morning walks on the nearly 2 miles of sandy beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aloha Kim,I had intended to contact you as soon as I got home but I don't have my computer yet. We DID have a great time and we all enjoyed the condo. Emilio was very helpful and they did a great job when they came and cleaned. We were all sad to leave but we sure have had a lot to talk about since getting back. Maui probably missed us because we did help the economy while we were there. We all wanted to thank you for extending our check out time. I have already recommended your place to other people who think they may have a vacation there in the future. All of the other women said they would certainly come back there and stay. Have a great holiday with your family and a great Christmas and New Year. Thanks for all your kindness,
Oct 2012

Comfortable, clean and stylish; wonderful beach ambiance, ocean front, excellent contact with owners

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous place to spend time on Maui! The condo was as described, very comfortable, with extra touches like beach chairs, umbrellas and a bogie board. This unit is at a perfect angle to keep the lanai shaded in the afternoon and evening, making it possible to sit outside to enjoy meals at the table provided. The terrific ocean-front location of the resort has an island ambiance with many native plants including palm trees and a wide variety of tropical flowers, two pools, mini-golf lawn and torches at night. Be sure to walk to the sea wall at the edge of the property to enjoy watching the waves and the sunsets -- quite a show! Many lounge chairs are provided by the resort.The condo and resort property are well-maintained and the owners were excellent in keeping in touch with us via email and providing lists of activities other guests have enjoyed on the island. We discovered a restaurant at the resort next door, easily accessible from the ocean side of this property; breakfast, lunch and dinner -- not much need to cook -- and the full kitchen in the condo and grills on the resort property making cooking easy. The beach itself is very short due to an outcropping of rocks, but for long beach walks, it is easy to access a two-mile stretch of beautiful and swimmable beach by walking or driving back up to the highway and using a nearby access road directly across from a conveniently located grocery store. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and family and will definitely choose this condo for future trips. Mahalo Nui Loa --- Thank you so much, Kim and Mary (owners) for sharing your island home with us. It's our favorite of the condos we've stayed in -- we are already looking forward to coming back to this condo on future trips to Maui.

Don't pay for a cramped hotel room for a family; better to spread out in this condo for less $

  • 5 of 5

The condo is nicely updated and stocked with everything you'll need. The owners are great to rent from; wonderful communication throughout stay and easy check-in. We had 3 kids with us, so being ground floor made it so easy for them to run out and play or head out to the pool. The location of the property is central, with Kapalua & Honolua about 15 minutes to the north for snorkeling and Lahaina Town about 15 minutes to the south. We about cried when we had to leave after 10 nights. We would definitely recommend Kim and Mary's condo to others and/or stay in this unit again.

What a wonderful vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We love staying here at Papakea resort and first time in this unit. Kim and Mary are very kind and helpful owners, it's very appreciative they quickly respond on the same day. This unit is nicely updated and has new appliances. We utilized the kitchen and BBQ often; we ate out only 4 times in the 9 days we were there. The condo was pretty clean when we got there, except the window sills in the master bedroom need attention! The dryer took a long time to dry the laundry (I found it better to do this early morning or the whole condo gets to hot at bedtime). The shower head in the master sprays a huge radius, my husband had to use 2 bath towels to wipe up all the water that spilled on the floor. Otherwise, the condo is very well stocked. The book on the coffee table was full of tips and we used as a guide on new things to do in Maui ! Mahalo!

Both the property and the unit were first class!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Maui was wonderful and this ground floor unit in Papakea was a great choice. This unit has been updated beautifully and owners provided all the extras such as beach chairs, umbrella and towels to make the stay enjoyable. It was close to the putting green and our teenager was there every chance he had. The convenient location makes easy to get to all attractions.

Great place, nice, and clean

  • 5 of 5

The condo was a great place that accommodated a family of 6 (4 adults & 2 kids). We loved that this was a downstairs unit which we can just open the back sliding down and walk outside. The kids loved going to the back because of the koi pond, putting green, and heated pool that was within a few steps away. The staff was great and the other residents was friendly. The unit was clean and had everything we needed for a long stay. There was shopping centers and groceries within a mile and walking distance. Although there wasn't a sandy beach, we didn't have any problem walking to the next resort which was within a 5-10 minute walk. The owners was great which they communicated with us on everything we need from the time we reserved the unit in October to the time we stayed in the unit in March. Even after our say, they found one of our missing clothing item and went out of their way sending it back to us. Great place to stay if considering staying close to this area. We would recommend this unit to friends and family.

Great ground floor condo

  • 4 of 5

Everything in the condo met or exceeded our expectations. It was great being on the ground floor with two young children - they were able to go outside and play on the grounds nearby (including looking for fish and frogs in the pond just outside and searching for gecko eggs in the trees!) while we enjoyed a drink on the lanai. Having two separate bedrooms was great - the second bedroom was very quiet for the kids to sleep in. The kitchen was well stocked - the first time we have ever had sharp kitchen knives for cooking in a rental condo!!! The condo itself is nicely finished and not lacking in any amenities. There is a heated swimming pool and hot tub just steps from the condo as well as several BBQs, a putting green, shuffleboard, and the lovely pond. The resort offers a kids camp (low cost) for kids 6-12 three mornings per week. The location of the property is walking distance to beaches for swimming and snorkeling, groceries, take out food, farmers market, and anything else you may need, and just a short drive to anything that is not right across the street. We had a very relaxing vacation and a lot of fun with this as home base!
