About Amy & Joe Consul

Joe and Amy live in California with their two beautiful daughters. We love to vacation together and as a family to Maui and are always looking forward to our next visit to the Papakea! Walking into the condo feeling the trades is relaxing and calming. Please enjoy our home. We continue to improve the condo to make it the best experience and most comfortable for all our guests

Amy & Joe Consul purchased this condo in 2009

Why Amy & Joe Consul chose Maui

Following 8 trips to Hawaii including 6 to Maui, we realized that the Papakea was the perfect vacation and second home resort property for us. The Papakea is a beautiful resort property located ocean front between world class resorts in Kaanapali and Kapalua. It's minutes from shops, restaurants and galleries in Lahaina as well as world class golf in Kapalua. And each night you have a front row seat to the most beautiful sunsets on the world! Celebrating 7 years of ownership in paradise

What makes this condo unique

The views are spectacular, very relaxing, close to the beach. The Papakea is one of a few low rise resorts offering beach front condos. This property buildings are four stories high with easy elevator access.

We love waking up and having coffee on the lanai to start another wonderful day in paradise!! Having the master bedroom on the ocean side is unique and is why we visit the islands, for the scenery and sounds of Hawaii

During whale season you can see the whales in front of the Papakea. This is truly breathtaking, bring your binoculars sit back and enjoy the show!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful vacation in your condo. The location was so great; close to everything we wanted or needed, but far enough from Kaanapali that we felt we could relax. The whale-watching was just superb the week we were there. People who live at Papakea year-round were even commenting on how great it was. We just sat on the loungers by the ocean and watched for hours. Our entire family was thrilled with the resort and the condo. It was very comfortable for all nine of us, we never felt crowded. Even when we all sat down to eat, we used the table, the bar and the lanai and it was very comfortable. Thanks for everything.

Nice resort and great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at the property. Amy was also great at returning any of our questions and requests. The views are spectacular from the condo, and the sunset can be viewed from the property. The condo is spacious and we would definitely recommend it.

6 out of 5 stars for this unit

  • 5 of 5

We (family of four adults, two children (12, 14)) thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this very nice, well equipped unit with modern kitchen and bathrooms. The views of the ocean and gardens are excellent and the orientation (NW) provides shade in the afternoon which is a plus. We did a lot of cooking and found everything needed to do so. Unit has many beach supplies (chairs, boggie boards, coolers, etc.) and the owner is very responsive to any queries/need. We have stayed at Papakea many times over the years and this is the nicest 3 bedroom that we've rented---it could easily accommodate 6 adults and two children or other combinations there-of. One can walk to shopping including a major grocery store (Times), a Farmer's market, Snorkel Bob's, ABC, and other shopping. Beach access to the south and lots of board walk or sidewalks to run on. Overall, excellent value and owners were delightful to deal with. We would definitely rent this unit again when we need a 3-bedroom. Papakea as a resort is first-class, impeccably kept with very friendly desk staff. The buildings have undergone major exterior renovation (now complete). It also offers many amenities if one wants to use them---this can be particularly attractive for younger families.

Fabulous family holiday

  • 5 of 5

This condo is fully equipped with everything you could need. The views are fabulous from the lanai and even the kitchen due to the reflection from the mirrored wall of the living room. The gardens, BBQ area and pool are well looked after by the staff. The special events planned for the guests were so much fun from the putting tournament, lei making and happy hour on Thursdays with live entertainment! The location to shopping and walking the boardwalk and just a short drive to so many amazing beaches makes this location so convenient. This was our second time staying here and look forward to our next!

Simply Awesome!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks recently in Maui staying at this condo, and it was perfect for us. We were an 8 person group with 4 adults and 4 kids. The upstairs loft was perfect for the kids, and gave them their own space. The amenities in the property were great, as we regularly used the boogie boards and beach chairs. The resort itself is perfect for what we wanted. We used the Tennis Courts, both pools, hot tubs and BBQs regularly. Papakea was also great for being central to Lahaina, Napili, Kapalua and Flemming beaches. We will definitely be booking this condo again!
