About the property

Ocean Front Ground floor, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This is an amazing, one-of-a-kind condominium at Papakea. Our oceanfront, 'A' Building, ground-floor, corner unit (A101) has double the living space of most other units at Papakea, with over 1400 square feet total. Included in the extra living area is a large kitchen, a large dining area and breakfast bar, an office nook with a desk, and a wet bar with a wine-fridge and mini-refrigerator. We also have a private double lanai.

The living room includes a comfortable chair and love seat as well as a sofa. We have converted two separate one bedroom units into one large two bedroom unit. The bedrooms are completely separate and very private. Both bedrooms have king-size beds and there are two full bathrooms. The sofa converts into a queen-size bed. Kitchen and bathrooms have been updated. We have a keyless entry system.

We have spectacular panoramic views of the beautiful Pacific Ocean, tropical landscaping with coconut palms, and the islands of Molokai and Lanai. The sunsets are stunning from our unit! Also, the whale watching is fabulous, in season. We are just steps away from the ocean, swimming pool, hot tub, and barbecues.

Our unit has air conditioning, however, with windows open and ceiling fans on, it is a wonderful, fresh, tropical, open air experience. You can listen to the gentle ocean waves at night. We have a fully-equipped kitchen, washer & dryer in unit, free in-room safe, and free wireless Internet access. There is also Satellite TV with DVD, and Stereo. This feels like a home, not a hotel, but with resort amenities.

This is a Non-Smoking unit. No pets allowed.

Papakea is a beautiful, private, oceanfront, beach resort with 13 acres of tropical landscaping, koi ponds, two oceanfront pools, two hot tubs, two cabanas, three lighted tennis courts, shuffleboards, two putting greens, and 12 gas barbecues. We have sandy beaches and coral reefs right in front of our property. This is a popular location for snorkeling, surfing, canoeing, and kayaking. They offer many activities on property as well as an activity guide to help you organize all of your activities on Maui. The staff are friendly and helpful. You will find a true Aloha spirit here.

There is an open air restaurant at the resort next door within walking distance. There are shops, restaurants, delicatessens, and a grocery store just across the road. We are five minutes from Whalers Village with great shopping and restaurants. We are ten minutes from historical Lahaina town with more great shopping, restaurants, history, and art. Papakea is halfway between the world class golf resorts of Kaanapali and Kapalua.

Why The Owner chose Lahaina

We were married on the grounds of Papakea. We have looked at many other properties in Hawaii. We decided to buy here because it is a smaller complex with beautiful grounds on the ocean front.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to let you know that we are back in North Carolina after a wonderful nine days in Maui. I thank you for a description of A101 that was accurate except you didn't mention the wonder breeze coming in of the ocean. We really enjoyed your place and if ever back in Maui, we will certainly check availability of A101.

Thanks for a smooth transaction.

My family of six stayed at this complex over the new year and had an amazing time. The condos was more than we expected . It was very spacious as we were six people. My two boys slept on the hide a bed and be it not perfect but we made due. The kitchen very well stocked with everything you need. It was 36 feet from the ocean wall . My husband actually measured it out. Dave and Chris were very easy to deal with and allowed us to have a fairly late check out as our flight left at 2300h. It was also only steps away from the pool and the hot tub. It is also just down the road from a fruit vendor and a local market with everything you need. I would not hesitate to stay here again or advise others to stay as well. Wonderful family vacation!!!

Do not pass up this property!

  • 5 of 5

This property was one of the main highlights of my trip to Maui. My party and I could not have asked for a more perfect location/property. Not only is the ocean front amazing, the location is spot on. Walking distance to a grocery store and a few coffee/food shops. Beach access is just a few steps away. It is also very spacious and fit 5 people easily. I highly recommend this property! You will not be disappointed.
