About the property

Ocean View Condo- Papakea Ocean Front Resort, Kaanapali Beach, Lahaina, W. Maui

Welcome to Papakea Ocean Front 13 acres of lush tropical paradise. See artistic rendering of Papakea resort (photo 1) by famous Maui artist Jim Kingswell and real photo of Papakea as seen from our lanai (Photo 2). There is nothing between this resort and ocean. It is an Ocean Front resort. Make left in front of the resort and you have access to miles of North Kaanapali beaches for walking, snorkeling or paddle boarding. In addition to beach walk there is miles of board walk along the beach.

This One bedroom, 1 bath Deluxe Remodeled 3rd floor unit E 310 has the Panoramic views of the Ocean, water fountains and koi ponds. Just look at the photos to see what I mean by DELUX remodel with brand new drapes and window coverings and TROPICAL LUXURY furnishings.

This unit faces North to keep you cool. Being warm is not the problem in Maui - Staying cool can be. We do have AC in the unit plus two fans when you need them. If you rather listen to ocean waves, instead of sound of AC, open the lanai sliding door and bedroom windows and enjoy the cool ocean breeze.

THIS IS TRUE VRBO (Rental by Owner).because you are renting through the OWNER directly and NOT through some management company who manage VRBO and other rentals and add their mark up and you have no idea which unit they will put you in when you arrive. Here you get what you see and the added bonus is that you get the best price since no middleman is adding their mark up.


1. Over 50 FIVE Star Guest Reviews and Great Value plus six additional reviews on the newer list number 1043347 .

2. OCEAN VIEWS from living room, kitchen and lanai. And water fountains and koi pond views from the lanai.

3. Fully remodeled unit with all the appliances and tropical furnishings.

4. Washer and dryer in the unit. You can pack light.

10. Hawaii Tax ID: 018-718-9248-01


Welcome our 1Br 1 Ba Ocean View Condo on a 13 acres of green and lush Ocean Front Family Friendly Papakea OCEAN FRONT Resort on world famous North Kaanapalli beach, also known as the quiet Beach

From this Ocean View condo you can enjoy the sights and sounds of blue pacific ocean from kitchen, living room and of course from the lanai without breaking the bank-truly a champagne vacation on beer budget when you compare guest review and our rates for a fully remodeled condo. Just look at those photos and guest reviews.

This unit is accessible by stairs and elevators. It has AC and two fans (one in living room and one in bedroom). If you rather listen to the ocean waves and not the AC, let the trade winds be your AC - Just open the lanai sliding glass door - especially when you go to bed and let the ocean waves lull you to fall asleep.

The unit also has flat screen TV and DVD player in the living room and iHome entertainment in the bedroom. The couch is a pull out queen sofa bed. Miscellaneous items like beach chairs, beach towels, putters and golf balls, HAIR DRYER, magnifying mirror are also in the unit. There are washer and dryer in the unit.

And the kitchen is fully equipped with all the utensils, coffee maker and all the kitchen appliances. And Farmers market and grocery store are just across the street from the resort if you did not do your shopping at Costco by the airport. And there are several restaurants across the street if your rather go out to eat. Also, there are many world famous restaurants in Maui, within 10 minutes of driving from this resort.

Wired and wireless internet access and parking are offered free.

At this Ocean Front Resort you have full access to two swimming pools, two hot jet spas, two cabanas and two 12 hole putting greens. There are 6 BBQ gas grills around each swimming pool (I have never seen anyone waiting for grill). Free fitness classes and activities including swimmer-size and Yoga classes are also available.

Two of the THREE tennis courts are also be stripped for pickle ball, basketball and badminton.


1. The rental rates are for maximum of two adults.

2. Additional persons may be allowed on exception basis at added cost of $15/person/night


Like all resorts in West Maui, Papakea Resort collects a $17/night resort fee to cover parking, water aerobics, Yoga, pool/hot tub access, shuffleboard, cable TV, and Internet access etc. This fee is paid to the front desk at checkout for the first 10 days of your stay, per month (Maximum $170 for each month of stay).

Although nobody likes additional fees, including the owners since they must also pay the same $17/night resort fee, many of the other resorts in West Maui are in the $20 - $31/day range. So Papakea is below the average rate in this regard.

About Owner

An engineer in the electronics industry with long work history at Intel and Boeing and now a consultant for the last two decades and sheep farmer-a wonderful combination. Too young to retire and too old to work 9 to 5. Frequent visits to this Condo in Maui makes me feel really blessed. Hope you love this place as much we do and be one of our frequent guests to enjoy this paradise, we call Maui- voted the best island in the world (yes few times in the last decade).

Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why Owner chose Lahaina

Even though we have lived in the beautiful Northwest (Seattle and now in Portland) for over 30 years now, you like to get away from the rain and cold sometimes. During my first visit ever to Maui in June 2011, I fell in love with Maui. After looking at all the options we have in Maui, I found Papakea to offer everything I was looking for, 2nd floor unit facing north with mesmerizing ocean views and palm trees.

What makes this condo unique

So close to the ocen with such a great ocean view from kitchen, dining, living and lanai. The view was definitely the clincher for me. You sit in your living room or lanai and be enchanted with the beaurty of ocean and swaying palm trees. The sky is different every time you look out


Car: recommended

North of Black Rock and Whaler's village, Walk to Grocery, shops, Bus

Great Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Ray's unit Papakea E205 for 3 weeks from August 30, 2017 to September 20, 2017. The unit was exactly as described and shown in the photos. We felt very much at home. The kitchen was fully equipped and we made full use of it. The grills around the pool were great! We cooked out some and ate out some. The grills were cleaned daily as was the pool. Due to a medical situation we needed to change our original dates and Ray was most cooperative. He is a pleasure to work with. Although the temps were in the upper 80's during the day, we never used the A/C. We kept the lanai screen door open as well as the bedroom windows. So long as the trades were blowing, we were very comfortable. If we are ever able to return to Maui, we all certainly stay at Ray's units in Papakea again. Mahalo Ray.

Nasty Mold & Mildew! Very Disappointing Condo

  • 1 of 5

We arrived in the evening on the first night we booked our stay at Ray's condominium in Papakea Resort to the smell of mold and mildew when we un-locked the door. Immediately we went to the windows to open them up and the curtains in both the bedroom and living room were black with mold and mildew. We called Ray directly after that and because it was almost 11:30 p.m. in Maui we left him a message knowing that he would not be able to respond until morning since he lives in the Pacific NW. When we woke up the next morning my husband reached Ray and told him of the black curtains in both the bedroom and the living room. Originally Ray was going to have them cleaned but he did send some resort personnel up to see the curtains while we were at the beach. He called us to confirm that the personnel had said also that the curtains were bad. When we returned to the condo they had sprayed them with some kind of cleaning material and bleach but the mold was still there. Over the next few hours Ray called us again about 4-5 times to tell us that he would instead have the drapes replaced because they could not come until the following week to clean them and he thought that they could successfully be replaced on Friday or Saturday. Although for health reasons that was a little long to wait we agreed that Friday or Saturday would be okay if they were in fact replaced. Well Friday and Saturday came and went and the curtains were still hanging there and they were not replaced. By this time, we were incensed because we were sleeping directly under these drapes in the bedroom where they hung over the Levolor windows and in the living area where they hung over the sliding glass doors. Both windows and doors had to be kept open for fresh air to take away the mildew smell and we are sure that mold and mildew spores were airborne as a result. On Monday morning, we rudely got a loud knock on the condominium door as well as the doorbell being rung at 9:00 am. When my husband answered the door, there were two gentlemen there with curtains for the bedroom (but not for the living room) to replace them. He told them that we did not know they were coming and just to leave since we were still sleeping and were already angry about the drapes not being replaced on Friday or Saturday. Mind you, this was already 6 DAYS into our vacation. So, said drapes were NEVER replaced and we were NEVER compensated for anything! Renter BEWARE!!!

Owner's Response: Mary’s complaint about mold and mildew is totally false and misleading. There are always two sides to any story. Here is my side of the story. I have owned this unit since 2011 and have received 45+ FIVE STAR reviews. You don’t get that kind of review if you are operating a mold infested vacation condo. I myself stayed in that unit a few weeks before Mary and everything was great. The guests who stayed before and after this guest also enjoyed the condo. So why would any guest write such a made-up review? Based on my very first conversation with Mary’s husband Tim, I got the feeling that he was making up complaints for money. This was confirmed by his second phone message and two emails demanding $1200 or they would write a bad review. I take all feedback from my guests seriously so I called Housekeeping as soon as I heard his message. Housekeeping found a stain on the drapes but it was against the wall and not visible from the room. They did not find any mold but I asked them to clean the condo anyway even though no cleaning was needed. After Housekeeping had cleaned the unit, I called the guest again and told him that I will replace the drapes. However, a few days later Tim called me again and left me a voice mail with a sprinkling of f-words threatening that since he is an expert in mold as a former OSHA employee he wanted $1200 BEFORE he arrived home. I did not pay him his ransom money of $1200 but I kept my appointment with the vendor to replace the drapes as promised. However, when the vendor showed up as scheduled, they told him to come back a few hours later. When the vendor showed up later, they did not let him in. So the poor guy wasted half a day and lost important appointments. The day after they checked out, I had the vendor come back and replace the drapes. I felt obligated to this vendor who had wasted half a day. In summary, the reason I have all these good reviews is that I take care of my condo and I go out of my way to take care of my guests. I did this for this guest too – had Housekeeping clean the unit again, sent him a box of chocolates and replaced the drapes with brand new drapes. Now you can enjoy those new drapes. Ray

Return to paradise

  • 5 of 5

Just completed our second 2 week stay in this unit and are already booked for next year. Unit has everything you need plus a fabulous view. Ray is a pleasure to deal with and is always responsive.

Papakea staff couldn't be any nicer. I told Ray after this visit that " I know you own it, but it feels like

home when we're there " . Looking forward to next year's stay.

What You See Is What You Get...And More!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in unit E-205! We walked in & opened the lanai door and the louvered windows in the bedroom & never once felt the need for AC, the trades just blew right through! It has a beautiful view of the ocean, pool and grounds and you can even hear the wave action. This condo is well maintained & updated and has a comfortable feel to it. The kitchen is well stocked with pots/pans, dishes & utensils- everything you need to put together a meal.

We barbecued most every night, the grills are clean & have grill lights attached. The staff is friendly & very helpful, as are most of the people staying there. There is ample parking, & easy access/short cut to the ABC Store through a gate on the property(take your room key to reaccess Papakea). Papakea has easy access to the board walk, it provides an easy walk if you are inclined, & it takes you right by "Dukes" & other restaurants, bars & grills. The owner of this property was a pleasure to work with, he communicates quickly & provided great customer service. My only suggestion is pick your vacation dates, then add 7 more days to it, you will not want to leave! Looking forward to our next trip there.
