About Cheryl Burlingame

We live in Fircrest, Washington, near Tacoma. Cheryl is a former Business Operations Manager for a large health care organization, and Mark is the public works director for Washington State’s first incorporated town, Steilacoom, where he was born and raised. Together we have three adult children and one very lively two-year-old grand-daughter.

Cheryl Burlingame purchased this condo in 2013

Why Cheryl Burlingame chose Maui

In September, 2011, we were invited by dear friends and Papakea owners, to make our first visit to Maui. We were enchanted before we had secured our rental car! We were drawn by the warmth of the trades and the essence of Aloha being shared by each “local” we met. We were effectively hooked before we arrived at Papakea! By the end of our eight bliss filled days, we had toured multiple units with an extremely patient realtor, and left the island intent on saving our pennies for a down payment on “our own piece of paradise”. Our very recent purchase of E-408 is the culmination of a long held dream we have had of obtaining vacation property – we simply had not dreamed big enough until we stayed at Papakea!

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is a sanctuary within a sanctuary with its central air-conditioning. Whether you feel the need to be cooled, or prefer the breezy air of the trades as they waft through the condo, you are assured comfort and tranquility. It is the perfect home base for all of your activities while enjoying your own “piece of paradise”.

Guestbook comments from the owner


We had so much fun while in Maui! Loved your condo, it was perfect! Steve and I so enjoyed coffee on the balcony and sunsets near the ocean! Loved having a place to cook a couple meals a day! Everything about it was just wonderful! Thank you for sharing it with our family! We cannot wait to get back to Hawaii with our boys!

Thank you so much again!

A real home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Papakea was the best decision I made when I was trying to plan our stay. Cheryl was very accommodating from the time I booked the unit and from the time we left. She's has everything there you need! Her unit is beautiful, it overlooks the mountains and clouds on the left and the beautiful blue ocean on the right when you look out of the lanai. We did a lot of our own cooking to take advantage of eating on the lanai because it was so breath taking and the trade winds were perfect. It's super close to many stores such as Times, ABC store and more all in walking distance. The facility is immaculate! I couldn't believe how clean the resort was, no rubbish on the floor and everyday there was always someone cleaning the grills that they look brand new. The pool opens at 7am, however we found out they really don't let you swim until 9am because they clean out the pool every morning. Everyone who works there are so kind and full of aloha. We did use the concierge and booked our luau which was a great experience. The facility always had parking available, which we always found near a tree so it wasn't as hot. We would definitely stay at Papakea again when we return to Maui! Very relaxing and great for families! Mahalo Cheryl for sharing your unit with us!

The Papakae is a fabulous resort for all! We are a Family of five and the condo that we rented was very comfortable. I highly recommend it. The pictures on the Internet do not do the property justice. It is well-maintained clean and luxurious !

We stayed on the fourth floor and that gave us a very beautiful view of the ocean.

There were many things we did not explore in the resort and we will be back to do so. You can book excursions right there in the resort. The staff was friendly and helpful. The outdoor grill was clean and efficient so we cooked at home. It has a very convenient location. You are close to everything. We thank the owner Cheryl for all her helpful hints! We look forward to another stay at Papakae!

A Wonderful Home-Away-From-Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been lucky enough to visit Hawaii every year for the last 15 years. Previously, we have stayed at the Westin when we visit Maui-but we decided to try staying in a condo because we were treating my husband's parents to a well-deserved vacation. Booking the place was easy. Cheryl was helpful, kind, and accommodating. After we arrived, we were so happy that we made the right decision. First of all, the location of the resort is just outside of Lahaina, near a grocery store, and right down the street from a fresh fish market. The condo is on the fourth floor-which gave us beautiful views from our lanai. There was an elevator close by when we were too tired to climb the stairs, but when we wanted a little excercise-the stairs were right outside our door. When you walked inside the condo your first impression is how comfortable the place felt due to the air conditioning. (I can tell you from experience- reliable central air conditioning is like a rare gem on the islands.) The furnishings are decent. The rooms were spacious. My in-laws used the downstairs bedroom and remodeled bathroom, while my husband and I shared the upstairs loft with a king-sized bed and its very own bathroom with a nice stand up shower. Everything worked nicely. Both rooms had TVs along with a nice TV in the living room. The kitchen had plenty of dishes and cooking utensils-and we took advantage of the grills downstairs too! The final reason why we found this condo homey was that we never felt crowded or overwhelmed with people using all of the resort's facilities. There was always plenty of parking, the grounds were immaculate, and the facilities were quiet in the evenings through the early mornings. Every aspect of this place was welcoming and we would not hesitate to return to the same place in the future!

Owner's Response: Mahalo, Bethany & Mick, for taking the time to place a review of our condo and Papakea Resort in general. We cannot say often enough how happy we are with our decision to buy a condo on Maui and feel incredibly blessed by our particular piece of heaven at Papakea! We still pinch ourselves every time we visit and it is extra special to share it with our guests and receive positive feedback! Happy Maui Memories~ Cheryl

A beautiful condo is perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This condo was a perfect place for me and two friends on our Maui get-away! I was very unfamiliar with Maui and where the best location on the island would be for great beaches, nice walks and drives, good food, and a quiet relaxing atmosphere. I was thrilled when I drove up to the condo was perfectly located for the activities we had planned and was absolutely beautiful. The grounds were so well manicured...and although the beach access was a few steps away from the property, it was convenient and easy to spend a couple of hours at the beach and going back and forth to the condo. The condo was clean and well maintained with expceptionally beautiful views. I sat on the lanai every morning to read and listen to the island wake up. I could see the koi pond, the pool, the ocean, the island Molokai, and Mauna Kahalawa. There was plenty of room to unpack for a few days, do some grocery shopping and be comfortable without feeling like we were in each others' space (the main reason I did not want to stay at a hotel resort).

Cheryl was an absolute delight. She sent a lot of useful information about things to do around the island. She helped us out when we needed something and was concerned about my friend becoming ill. I'm sure they have a lot of people coming through their place, but she made me feel like we were her most important guests. I highly recommend this location...and next time I'm in Maui I will plan my trip around the availability of this condo!

Wonderful Time!

  • 5 of 5

It was perfect for our family of 5. We had enough room and we didn't feel crowded. The location was great. Only minutes from Lahaina. The owner was very helpful and easy to work with. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks Cheryl!

Owner's Response: Aloha Rob & Tammy~ Mahalo for taking the time to provide such a warm review. I returned to the mainland last night after 7 days in our "home away from home". There were 6 of us this trip (the most ever for us) and would agree with you that we did not feel crowded. Mahalo for choosing to stay "with us" and we do hope you will have opportunity to return! Until then -- Happy Maui Memories~ Cheryl
