About the property

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

Take Advantage of our May June Special. Will not last for very long.

Also take a look at our other Ocean View unit - E 310 - VRBO 1043347 in the same E Building - one of only two Papakea buildings, out of 11, facing 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, open the lanai sliding door and bedroom window and enjoy the cool ocean breeze.

In this unit you can enjoy lanai or balcony all day - any time of day sunny before noon but shady in the afternoon and enjoy your coffee and book or join other guests by the pool or ocean to get the tan you always wanted.

Cut through the chase and read those 48 FIVE STAR guest reviews to really appreciate what a great value we provide for this unit E 205 - VRBO 434898 that you are looking at and also for our other unit E 310 - VRBO 1043347 that you should also look at - in the same E building.

THIS IS TRUE VRBO (Rental by Owner). You are renting through the OWNER directly and NOT through some management company who manage VRBO and other rentals and add their mark up. You get the best price since no middleman is involved.


1. Over 48 FIVE Star Guest Reviews and Great Value.

2. OCEAN VIEWS from living room, kitchen and lanai.

3. Fully remodeled unit with all the appliances

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

5. FREE high-speed Wi-Fi internet access and FREE PARKING

8. North Facing Condo to Enjoy Lanai use ALL day.

9. Lighted Tennis courts, swimming pools, hot tubs, shuffle boards

9. Fee Yoga and swimmercise classes, Weekly Mai Tai Party.

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


Please take a look at our other property VRBO Listing Number 1043347. We just purchased it and that unit does not have any guest reviews. This unit is in the same E building on 3rd floor – Unit E 310.

If this unit E205 that you are looking at does not have the dates you want check out the calendar for the E 310 VRBO # 1043347.

Both these units are fully remodeled with AC and OCEAN VIEWS.


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 brand new 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 TVs in both living room and bedroom. There is also a Blue Ray/DVD Player. The couch is a pull out queen sofa bed. Miscellaneous items like FOUR beach chairs, FOUR beach towels, putters and golf balls, HAIR DRYER, etc are also in the unit. There are washer and dryer in the unit. So you can pack light.

And the kitchen is fully equipped with all the utensils, coffee maker, tea kettle 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.

From this condo, you are less than 100 feet Ocean, 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 IF THEY CAN SHARE THE PULL OUT QUEEN SOFA BED 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 Maui

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

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.

Best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time at your property. The fact that it is away from the hustle and bustle of hotels and tourist traps was fantastic. Beautiful view, clean well kept accommodations bed was just as comfortable as home. I enjoyed my vacation thanks to you and your condo. When I do come back to Maui I just hope that your place is available.
