About Gayle Moss

My husband and I are Canadians that have been coming to Maui every year since 2007; and every year we love it even more than the year before. We eventually hope to retire here, but until then, this is our SECOND little piece of paradise on Papakea to enjoy on our vacation every year.

We hope our home-away-from-home brings you as much joy as it does us. Please do drop us a line and let us know what we can do to make your stay special.

Gayle Moss purchased this condo in 2013

Why Gayle Moss chose Maui

We chose Papakea for many reasons:

1. Location: Papakea is on the west coast just north of Lahaina, next to Ka'anapali. Like Baby Bear said, 'It's just right!' because it doesn't get the uncomfortable heat of Lahaina or heavy rains of Kapalua. It's perfect!

2. It has so many recreational facilities and is very family friendly, but it's also great for adults who want quiet and privacy with separate pools and hot tubs for kids and adults.

3. The grounds are kept in immaculate condition.

4. We fell in love with it the moment we saw it.

What makes this condo unique

A 13-acre beachfront oasis of relaxation, Papakea Resort features tropical landscaping with Koi ponds and palm trees located throughout, and is approximately 32 miles from Kahului Airport. Papakea offers several recreational facilities, including two 12-hole putting greens, three tennis courts, shuffleboard, beach activities, and two swimming pools with whirlpools. A fitness center is also available at a neighborhood resort.

Other amenities include free parking, Weber BBQs, dry cleaning services, free WIFI, parking, and an activity desk.

Free yoga and aqua-fit classes as well as weekly putting and tennis tournaments are available.

Everything you could want in a vacation rental is right here. Why go anywhere else?

Cleanliness of unit

  • 2 of 5

I attempted to air my concerns with the owner, privately, with no success. This unit is in a great location and is nicely remodeled. However, the cleanliness and maintenance of the unit in some areas is not what I expect from a VRBO property. We found leftover Kleenex from prior tenant under the master room bed along with lots of dust, dirt and bugs. The comforters on all the beds were stained and desperately in need of cleaning; throw rugs and shower mats were very dirty and I had to wash them myself; shower curtain in master bath is moldy and needs to be washed or replaced; bottom drawers of dresser in the 2nd bedroom had no knobs to open the drawers; the patio floor is filthy; curtains in the living area are falling off the rod. For the rental price of this unit and the description of how fabulous it is, we expected it to be top notch. We love Papakea resort but will not rent this unit again or recommend it to anyone else.

Owner's Response: Oh my! I can't tell you how shock and dismayed at the condition of the condo for your vacation. But I'm also very surprised that I never received a call or email from you during your stay. I've check my emails, voice mails and missed calls - nothing from you at all. If I had known about the problems, I would have had a crew in there immediately to clean and fix anything that was wrong. I am so sorry I wasn't able to do that for you. I care deeply about my condo and the experience of my guests, which is why we get so many 5 star ratings. I have asked my property manager to replace all the linens with new ones, scrub down the unit and lanai, fix the drawers in the dresser and fix the curtain rod. I deeply apologize for your experience and will of course, refund your cleaning costs. Gayle (owner)

Property work for us although we would've liked a three bedroom.

Property worked for us although we would've liked a three bedroom.

We really enjoyed the tips and information contained in the Maui Revealed book. We also found the CD that we obtained from Boss Frogs on the road to Hana to be very informative and interesting. The sunsets were wonderful. We hope to return again in a year or two

Our 3 week family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 wonderful weeks in this unit and we had a great time. The rental experience far exceeded our expectations and we would highly recommend this unit. We very much appreciated that there was no "resort fee". This is a rare perk at Papakea rentals. This ground unit is perfect for families with kids as it has easy access to the putting green and the pool. We also rented their other unit (D-406) for our large family and found it to be a great condo. Being on the 4th floor, it's a quiet and peaceful room that has a fabulous view.

A week in beautiful Lahaina!

  • 5 of 5

This unit was great for our stay in Maui. The location was close to restaurants and stores, close to very nice beaches. Mostly quiet, though easy to hear what's going on outside of the unit. Quiet time each night from 10p-7a meant that we didn't have to worry about sleep. Well stocked with the essentials, close to the grocery store to stock up for the week. Mahalo for letting us stay here!

Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

The property has a partial view of the ocean but is only a couple of hundred feet from the water and less than that from the swimming pool and barbecue area. Just outside the patio is a well-manicured putting green which was a great place for my two toddler grandchildren to run around and softly fall when they lost their balance. The closet was well-stocked with beach equipment and the entire complex is beautifully landscaped with Hawaiian flora. Great location in Kaanapali just minutes from Napili and Kapalua. We only wished we had booked the condo for a few additional days

Car: not necessary

Papakea is a 13 acre oceanfront resort which exudes the magical feeling of Aloha. The complex is comprised of two sets of low-rise buildings, each with its own oceanfront pool area including a spa, a covered cabana and multiple gas barbecues.

The resort also has two large 12-hole putting greens, two shuffleboard courts, two tennis courts, gorgeous manicured lawns and lots of beautiful koi ponds and fountains.
