About the property

Oceanfront Studio Condo with soothing surf sounds and great views

Our condo is unit A206 - a renovated direct oceanfront studio condominium. The A building is located at the north end of the Papakea complex and is one of the quietest and most private buildings in the complex. The building is located adjacent to parking and this second floor unit can be accessed via elevator or by stairs. Complimentary luggage carts are provided in each building for guest use. The unit is a short walk to one of the two pools and hot tubs in the complex, a putting green, and shuffleboard court. Surrounding each of the two pools are 6 gas-fired Weber BBQ units.

Although there are many excellent restaurants in West Maui, our personal dinner preference is to grill some fresh local fish on one of the pool-side BBQ's while watching an awesome Maui sunset. The condo is well equipped with all utensils to do so including plastic ware for the pool area.

Unlike some studio condominiums at Papakea which utilize a pull down wall mounted Murphy bed, our unit features a traditional queen sized bed, so you can comfortably drift off to sleep to the sound of the surf. A washer and dryer are included, and we also supply all linens, including beach towels.

The unit is tastefully decorated in a Hawaiian theme, and is perfect for a romantic couple getaway. The lanai includes a table with chairs and a direct view of Molokai and the whales (in season). The unit is air conditioned, however there is generally an ocean breeze blowing, and between that and the ceiling fan we seldom find use for the air conditioner, except in the hottest of the summer months. Entertainment includes a wall mounted high definition flat screen television with cable programming and a DVD/BluRay/CD player. There is an Internet WiFi hot spot located in the unit.

The Papakea resort was constructed when Maui resort development was in its infancy, and consists of 11 four story low rise buildings spread over 13 landscaped acres. Only 3 of the 11 Papakea buildings are actual oceanfront buildings, and our unit is located in one of those buildings. The Papakea resort is within walking distance to groceries, shops, restaurants, bars, and even a local farmers market. Papakea used to have a beach in front of the complex, however mother nature removed it during a storm many years ago. Today there is a seawall and a large grassy area with plenty of chaise lounges for sunbathing and sunset watching, with a beautiful public beach approximate 100 yards to the south of the complex for ocean swimming and snorkeling.

Please come and share our little piece of Maui paradise.

Why Doug and Roberta Babcock chose Maui

We first visited Papakea on our honeymoon in 1991 and quickly fell in love with the resort. Although we visited other Hawaiian resorts, as well as Mexico, Thailand, and Australia over the years, we were always drawn back to Papakea, and finally purchased our own little piece of paradise in 2011.

What makes this condo unique

Papakea was constructed when Maui resort development was in its infancy, and thus consists of 11 four story low rise buildings spread over 13 landscaped acres. Only 3 of the 11 Papakea buildings are actual oceanfront buildings, and our unit is located in one of those buildings where you can drift off to sleep to the sound of the ocean waves. Papakea used to have a beach in front of the complex, however mother nature removed it during a storm many years ago. Today there is a seawall and a large grassy area with plenty of chaise lounges for sunbathing and sunset watching, with a beautiful public beach approximate 100 yards to the south of the complex for ocean swimming and snorkeling.

Awesome view

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed staying at Papakea A206. Location is fantastic, view is priceless. Perfect amount of space for two. No need to book ocean front dining as you have it all the time! Close by stores super convenient and not that much more than Walmart by the airport. Groundskeepers constantly making sure everything looks gorgeous. Really enjoyed the beach walk and Kanaapali beach, not to mention whale watching from the balcony. Thanks for sharing your place with us.

A206 - a beautiful oceanfront studio condo where we spent 16 days

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your well-maintained and clean condo. It was extremely well stocked with kitchen and bathroom necessities. The beach chairs, umbrella , cooler,and beach towels were a great addition.

The owners were very pleasant to deal with and quick to respond to any questions.

We went to sleep with the sound of the ocean by keeping the door slightly open and awoke to a beautiful view without getting out of bed!

We will definitely rent this condo next year!

The location was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was the 6th time we have been to Maui. We have never been so completely satisfied with the actual room and facilities; the pool area was always open (did not need to get up at 7 A.M. to reserve a spot); we found the open market area 4 blocks away was fun, and there was live music every night across the street. Although we are usually quite active, we found ourselves spending hours watching the wales, turtles and the sunsets from our deck. This specific location does not have a beach but does place you 20 yards from the surf. There are two nice beaches within walking distance. Great Place!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We've stay in this unit for the last 4 years and we really enjoy it.

It's so nice to be on the ocean front being able to see the whales from the sun deck and hear the waves 24/7.

Great spot

Spectacular view with the sounds of the waves

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful well set up space, very cozy, everything we needed. Because of the configuration of the resort, this apartment is very private. There is a narrow strip of lawn and then nothing but sea and sky. The amenities of the resort are unobtrusive on the other side of the building, steps away if you want them.

The complex is well maintained and managed. Check in was easy and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

The kitchen has all of the essentials and we especially appreciated the good quality steel pots and pans. The bed was very comfortable. While we were there it was very quiet, just the sound of the waves. Being so close to the water there was a constant breeze and we never needed the air con, though it was nice to know it was there if required.

The owners were very helpful and organized. The information they provided was great, the description of local grocery stores and restaurants was very helpful.

We spent a lot of time sitting on the balcony with our meals or coffee, just watching the water and Molokai in the distance, and of course the ever present rainbows and occasional whale. Everything was first rate, we can't recommend the apartment enough.

Private and Quiet location with a Private View!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic resort (Papakea) with even better owners. We enjoyed our week stay at Doug/Roberta's condo with a fully equipped condo (even beach gear and extra bags that came in handy). The condo was clean and very accessible to many other beaches. While we didn't make use of many of the amenities on site (they looked great at a glance). Doug was very responsive in the pre booking phase and even got in touch with us during our stay to check in with us. Doug allowed us to extend our check out time on the last day, which was extremely helpful as we had a late flight out. Highly recommend this place if you are visiting Maui!

Thanks Doug/Roberta for making our stay so relaxing and comfortable!
