HERE IS SOME MORE DETAILS

Welcome our 1Br 1 Ba Ocean View Condo on a 12 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 dining room and 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. The one in living room is brand new - March 2016. There is also a Blue Ray 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 unit, you are equal distance (about 50 feet or 16 meters) to this resort's 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.

RESORT OR FACILITIES FEE BY PAPAKEA RESORT (NOT PAYABLE TO ME)

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 not paid to us, the owners, but instead to the front desk at checkout for the first 10 days of your stay, per month. 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.

VRBO SERVICE FEE FOR BOOKING THROUGH VRBO (NOT payable to me)

Starting February 19, 2016 VRBO has started charging from $80 to $500 (depending on the total rental cost) to use their site to book this or ANY other VRBO unit. This fee does not go to us, the owner but to VRBO. To avoid this fee, you can if you like deal directly with the owners if you feel comfortable doing so. Please call me if you have questions.

EMERGENCY SEA WALL RESTORATION PROJECT

Sea Wall Restoration project is currently underway. However, this Repair work is not visible or audible from this unit (Unit E 205 in Building E). This work involves construction and drilling noise (Mon-Fri, 8 AM to 5 PM) especially if you are staying in ocean front buildings A, F, and L. The construction is expected to continue through November 2016 unless the project schedule slips.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO HAVING YOU AS OUR HONORED GUEST

RENTAL AGREEMENT AND CANCELLATION POLICY

OUR CANCELLATION POLICY

Unlike a hotel with multiple rooms, you are renting directly from an owner who has just this one condo which is reserved exclusively for you and cannot be rented to anyone else after you have booked it. In case you cancel, every attempt will be made to rent the unit and full refund is made IF and only IF the unit can be rented after your cancellation.

However, if there is not sufficient advance notice for cancellation, it is possible that the unit may not get rented at all or may be rented for much lower amount than was collected from you. In that case you may lose ALL or part of your rental payment.

We can also offer you another option - Full Credit on your future rental within a year of your cancellation date.

If you do not feel comfortable with our cancellation policy, we highly recommend that you purchase cancellation insurance policy through VRBO at a nominal cost (varies with the dollar amount of insurance coverage, please contact VRBO for quote. Please ask VRBO for details before you purchase it. It is entirely your decision to purchase insurance policy provided by VRBO or any other insurance company.

By renting this Papakea unit E 205 from Ray Prasad, the owner, you, the guest(s), agree to all the terms and conditions mentioned herein.

RENTAL AGREEMENT

Rental payment from US guests is due by eCheck or credit card. Personal check is accepted on exception basis since there is potential for delay in USPS or overseas delivery. Canadian and other overseas guests need to pay by bank check drawn in US funds or by credit card.

The personal checks by US guests and Bank checks by overseas guests need to be mailed by postal mail or FedEx. Again, since this is done on exception basis for mutual safety, we will provide you the mailing address at the time of mailing.

eCheck by US guests and Bank checks by overseas guests should not cost anything either to you or to me.

When damage deposit is refunded, 3.5% (5.5% for overseas guests to cover added currency conversion fee) of total payment will be deducted from your refundable damage deposit to cover the credit card fees (in addition to cost of any damage, if applicable). The way to avoid credit card fee is to pay by eCheck or bank check.

1. $15/night/adult over 2 adults in the party.

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

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.

Very nice property

  • 1 of 5

Really didn't appreciate the charging an extra $52 just because we paid with a credit card for the security deposit on the condo. Also, the $105 service fee for just using the condo kinda sucked. Should make these inconvenient charges more noticeable. Everything else was great.

Owner's Response: Hello Lorrie. Thanks for calling my property a Very nice property and you found the condo was as described. I am disappointed with your one star rating especially since I have had nothing but five star even though I do understand your frustration with resort fee. The fee is $15/ night for max of 10 days for each 30 day of stay. No one likes it including me, the owner since I have to pay too. While no one including me like this resort fee, it is much lower than other Maui resorts who charge $20 to $33. Papakea resort fee pays for free parking, free wifi, free yoga and swimmercise and many other things. By the way, we the owners have to pay that fee too. What you should have mentioned is that I have mentioned this resort fee very prominently on my site. It is also mentioned in detail in my cancellation policy which you received from me. This should not have been a surprise to you and hence does not deserve mention in the review. It is already mentioned on the site. . I also understand your frustration with credit card fee but this is also explained on my site and also in my cancellation policy. I have also mentioned that eCheck or personal check or bank check are the ways to avoid this fee. Again, I do understand your frustration but I am not responsible for you not reading the documents sent to you or mentioned on the site. Ray Owner
