Papakea resort is a 13 acres of lush tropical paradise. It is located in West Maui between the Kaanapali and Kapalua with world class golf resorts and minutes from shops, restaurants, and galleries in nearby Lahaina and Whalers Village. Make a left in front of the resort and you have access to miles of North Kaanapali beaches for walking (both beach walk and Board walk), snorkeling or paddle boarding.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS:

You are renting through the OWNER directly. You know what you are renting and from whom. You get what you see, NORTH FACING END Unit E 310 in Building E on the 3rd floor with the panoramic ocean views along with the views of swimming pool, putting green, koi ponds with colorful fish and water fountains. Awesome.

To get a good sense of our condo and Papakea resort, please take a look at our photos. In addition to the photos, please also take a look at our video. To really get an objective view of this resort, this one bed room suite, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, our dealings with our past guests, please read the reviews from our past guests - over 50 FIVE STAR reviews. That tells you all you need to know about me and my unit from your fellow travelers of the past. Hopefully you will add to those reviews your views.

This condo faces NORTH. That means you can enjoy Lanai use ALL day. Keeping warm in Maui is not the problem in any season. However, keeping cool can be. This unit keeps you comfortable anytime of the day. When inside the unit, open the lanai sliding door and bedroom window and enjoy the cool ocean breeze and let the ocean waves lull you to sleep.

If you do end up renting this unit and I hope you do, please take a look at the all the lanais across you facing south. You will find very few hard core sun worshipers being roasted during the day. As I mentioned, keeping warm is not the problem. But keeping cool can be in South and West facing units. If like those kinds of unit, this one is not for you. You get sun only before noon.

By the way, we do have AC in the unit plus two fans, one in the living room and one in the bedroom, when you need them.

Another unique benefit of this unit - This is an end unit. So there is no walk way behind the unit by the bed room as would be the case for the rest of 9 units on each floor. What this means is that you don’t have to listen to inconsiderate people who walk and talk past quiet hours of 10 PM.

Also, since this is an end unit, there is no wall on one side of the lanai for privacy from your neighbor. Plus you get the views of water fountains and Koi ponds. With no wall on one side, the breeze is also amazing and you will love spending time on the lanai. We have chairs and a table in lanai (in addition to 4 chairs and glass table in the dining room). You will love eating and drinking in Lanai while watching the ocean waves, putting greens and Koi ponds - not the feature of direct ocean front units that this unit competes with.
This peaceful one bedroom 3rd floor suite comes with fully equipped kitchen and in-room washer/dryer for extra convenience. You will have a private furnished balcony, where you can relax and enjoy spectacular ocean view and cool breeze, 12 hole manicured putting green and garden, koi ponds with colorful fish right from your lanai.

Another cool feature of this this suite is that you can watch the ocean waves in the large wall mirror behind the sofa even when you are in the kitchen. It is really cool to see the real ocean when you look left and its image when you look right - really an unusual feeling.

Remodeled throughout, the unit has granite counter tops, cherry cabinets and custom touches and the living area has ample seating as well as cable TV and DVD player. There is an iHome in bedroom if you want to listen to your songs on your iPod/iPhone.

There is a dining table with seating for four inside, as well as seating for four on the private lanai. The kitchen is fully equipped with new dishes, cooking utensils, dishwasher, refrigerator, oven, microwave, blender, toaster, and coffee maker. This suite also has its own clothes washer and dryer so you can pack light.

The bedroom is nicely furnished with tasteful pictures, sliding 6 feet mirror closet doors. The bath room is fully remodeled with walk in shower.
All linens including large beach towels are provided. Hair dryer, iron and ironing board and beach chairs are also in the unit.

ADDITIONAL FEES

• The rental rates are for maximum of two adults even though this unit can accommodate additional two people if they can share the queen sofa bed.
• Additional persons may be allowed on exception basis at added cost of $15/person/night.

RESORT OR FACILITIES FEES BY PAPAKEA

Like all resorts in West Maui, Papakea Resort collects a $17/night resort fee to cover parking, water aerobics, Yoga, pool/hot tub access, shuffleboard, cable TV, and Internet access etc. This fee is paid to the front desk at checkout for the first 10 days of your stay, per month (Maximum $170 for each month of stay).

Although nobody likes additional fees, including the owners since they must also pay the same $17/night resort fee, many of the other resorts in West Maui are in the $20 - $31/day range. So Papakea is below the average rate in this regard. You pay this fee to the front desk and not to me. But I want to make sure you know this and not find this out when you get there.
