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 Lahaina

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've been home now for just about a week. Your condo was really nice. The location is perfect on the top floor and at the end of the hall. The loft is nice and spacious. There were 3 of us and we had plenty of room!

We visited 4 islands in just under 2 weeks. Maui was our last island before heading home.

We enjoyed our stay - even with all the rain. It rained all day on Saturday and most of Sunday. However the sun came out on Sunday evening just in time for sunset - the clouds made it a very nice sunset. The ponds at Papakea overflowed - I've included a picture.

We visited Maui Brewing company in Kihei and did a brewery tour. We had ice cream at Island Ice Cream and breakfast at Slappy Cakes. We had lunch at Mama's fish house and visited Maui Ocean center. We went snorkeling in Honolua Bay and saw lots of fish. We still did a lot considering the weather.

Comfortable, casual, and relaxing stay.

  • 5 of 5

Our overall stay at Papakea Resort was excellent. We loved our view of the grounds and ocean from E408! We saw the whales breaching from the lanai, watched a variety of birds, and enjoyed all the colorful flowers! The grounds are meticulously maintained and the people are friendly and helpful. There are so many things to see and do on Maui, and the nicest part is coming home to such a comfortable place to stay! Mahalo...

Fabulous Xmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Cheryl’s condo was perfect. Working with Cheryl was a pleasure as she was always prompt through emails re any questions or change in our planning of our trip. She also provided us with a very detailed welcome package to Maui re things to do, shopping, restaurants etc.was very helpful. The condo itself was very spacious comfortable and clean. Condo was equipped with everything you could possibly need from every kitchen utensil you can think of to beach gear. We especially enjoyed the morning and evenings on the 4th floor lanai. The views of the ocen and grounds of Papakea were amazing. Thank you Carol for letting us stay in your home away from home. Lots of great memories. Hope to be back.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this unit! It was clean and comfortable! We loved having a nice kitchen with the regular things but also extras, like a crock pot. Wifi was excellent. The Papakea resort has a huge plus - a heated pool. The grounds and pool and grassy areas are very well kept. It's also a super short (2 minutes) walk to a great ABC store and a 5 minute walk to a fabulous grocery store. Cheryl was awesome about answering questions. Had a fabulous time!

Is it open at the end of February?

  • 5 of 5

This condo is family ready. It feels like sharing my friend's home. The showers have amazing amazing water pressure. The kitchen has every necessity and quite a few extras for meal prep. The cooking supplies we're perfect. The on-site gas grills are at the beautiful pools with outdoor eating spaces all can enjoy. The hot tub is a great way to wind down at the end of the night. The beds are comfy. The trade winds are absolutely lovely and cool everything down. Deck gets morning sun and is a great space for coffee. The grounds are beautiful and filled with ocean, views and gorgeous flowers. Stores and eateries close by. We will be back!

Vacation Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The unit is spacious and comfortable and the view from the balcony is spectacular! The kitchen is complete with everything you need if you desire to cook and the appliances all worked well, including the washer and dryer. Air conditioning is a plus, but not necessary to use if the sliding door is open and the fans are running. At night the sound of the ocean lulls you to sleep! We were a group of 5, two couples and a single. The beds in the downstairs bedroom and the loft bedroom are extremely comfortable, but unfortunately the pullout sofa mattress rates an "F" - the only negative to report. We made good use of the resort amenities - pool, hot tub, mini golf, BBQ grills - really made ourselves at home! All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our vacation in paradise!
