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.


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.


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.


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.

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

Thank you for the refund. And thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful condo! My husband, kids, and I had a perfect vacation! You had everything we needed and more!

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

Fun stay, lots of room

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time here. Family of 4. Kids slept comfortably together on the sofa bed. Room was big and spacious. Pools fun and was really impressed with the daily morning cleaning from the grounds crew on pool and BBQ's. Great response from owner whenever we needed him.

Owner's Response: Thank you Justin. I am glad you and your kids had great time. Maui is one of those vacations spots where I am not sure who has more fun - kids or adults. We start our day with beach walk, get in some paddle boarding and snorkeling, hiking as often as we can and end the day with a long soak in hot tub before going to bed. Some days do nothing. Just take a nap or watch TV or go out for dinner and a movie or shows in Lahaina. Really relaxing place. It is such a delight to sit out on the lanai and soak in the sights and sounds Papakea's pristine grounds, putting green, hot tub, pool and of course the clear blue water of Pacific Ocean. All this while having or coffee or lunch or dinner. This is what I miss when I leave that condo and I can hardly wait to get back next time. Fortunately we are able to return many times a year. It is not a just a condo in a ocean front resort but our second home. We are delighted to share with wonderful guests like you. Now many of them are not only our repeat guests but have become our friends too. Hope to see you again when you make your next Maui vacation plan Justin. Ray

Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

The moment you enter this condo you realize that you made the best vacation decision of your life. We were awe struck when we saw the amazing views through the oversized sliding door. The resort pool and the ocean views were exactly what we wanted. The condo was very clean, modern and updated. Although the weather was very warm we seldom used the new air conditioner. We just opened up the large sliding glass door and opened our bedroom windows and experienced the cooling trade winds and listened to the sounds of the ocean. The owner was quick in responding to our questions and he made the entire renting process simple and painless. We spent two weeks and we will definitely return. This resort is small, immaculate, and friendly. A wonderful experience.

Owner's Response: Thank you Ken. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and found the unit as described on the site. Also, as you have noted, I rather listen to Ocean waves than to AC noise. I too just open the lanai sliding door and bedroom window and let the trade winds cool the unit. Actually this is so effective that you may not even want to open the sliding door all the way unless you want to use the blanket during the night. But there is AC and two fans just in case you need them. Look forward to seeing you again when you make your next Maui vacation plan. We will love to have you back. Repeat guests are becoming larger and larger part of our bookings. Ray

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

We recently completed a 2 week stay. Although we had stayed at Papakea before, this was our 1st time in this unit. The best recommendation I can give is that 2 days into our stay, we contacted Ray and booked another 2 weeks for next year. The view is outstanding and exactly as shown in the photo. Unit is perfectly located, with easy access to the pool, BBQ's, etc. and is well stocked with everything needed for a comfortable stay. The grounds are extremely well maintained, the staff very friendly and the resort has a relaxing Hawaiian feel.
