FABULOUS LOCATION - Just 50 steps to the pool, the hot tub and the BBQ’s and a few more steps to the ocean-front lounge chairs. Grab a cool drink and head out to watch the sun set between Molokai and Lanai. Bring your binoculars for excellent whale watching December to May or use the ones we supply in the condo.
CONVENIENT - Papakea Resort enjoys an outstanding Maui site and our unit is one of the very best locations within the complex. While some people may initially prefer a higher unit hoping for a view, our ground floor unit offers several advantages; the convenience of not climbing stairs or waiting for an elevator several times a day, the ability to go out your lanai door directly to the pool and ocean instead of a trip around the back of the building. The ease of access to the BBQ’s means your food stays hot on the way back to your lanai. Once people try our unit, they seldom go back to a balcony property.

TOP QUALITY - Units in Papakea vary widely in condition. They range from some units that haven’t been updated since the 80’s, to ours which was totally renovated using top quality materials and fixtures. It's frequently mentioned by repeat guest that ours is one of the very best.
• Tile floors throughout for a cool, clean, easy-care environment.
• Cabinets in kitchen and bathrooms of African mahogany accented with exotic Jarra wood. Granite counter tops complete the executive look and feeling of quality.
• This is our vacation home so the kitchen is fully equipped with all the cutlery, gadgets and tools you need.
• Entertainment center features a large flat screen Smart-TV, a DVD player, streaming video for your NetFlix, YouTube or similar account. CD player with iPod dock for your music. Each bedroom also has a TV. All enjoy Spectrum Cable TV services.
• Master suite features a king bed, large vanity with double sinks, a large tiled shower with double shower heads and a “washlet” style toilet popular in upper-class Japanese households.
• Latest technology zone air conditioning. This allows each bedroom and the living room/kitchen to be cooled independently. This not only saves on the environment by allowing less use of the A/C but ensures you can quickly cool your sleeping area for a good night’s rest.
• Second bedroom features a queen bed plus a twin bed. Washroom has a tiled shower and vessel style sink.
• Free wireless internet access throughout the resort.
• All linens including large beach towels are provided.
This is our vacation home, so appliances, kitchenware and amenities are being constantly replaced or upgraded to ensure everyone, renters and owners, enjoy their vacation.

PEACEFUL AND BEAUTIFUL - Papakea is a quiet, well-maintained, family friendly resort that offers the peaceful beauty and an oceanfront location that is the reason people come to Hawaii. Major food store, restaurants and most of the services you want on holidays are within walking distance. Lahaina town is a short 10 minute drive away with the shops and restaurants of Whalers Village half way between.

ACTIVITIES - Lots to do in and around Papakea. The resort features lighted tennis and pickleball courts for guest use, a large well maintained putting green in the central park area right outside your door and various pool and exercise activities such as yoga and fitness instruction in the pool area. (currently on hold due to Covid). Tour arrangements can be made with on-site staff.

We had a wonderful stay. The property was clean and comfortable. There was snorkel gear and beach chairs, which was super helpful. Loved the location. Walking distance to stores. The only downside to the property was that although the ocean was a couple hundred yards away from the condo, the beach was non-existent. In order to get good beach access, we needed to walk to the adjacent property. It wasn't horrible, but I little bit of a bummer.

This property exceeded our expectations. The condo had everything our family needed: fully stocked kitchen, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, air conditioning, nicely updated kitchen and baths. There was snorkel equipment as well, but we rented our own to use for the week. Being on the ground floor was great; we could sit on the patio for a cocktail in the evening or morning coffee. We are a family of 5 and it was perfect because the second bedroom had both a queen and a twin bed. Papakea is in a great location. It was quick and easy to get to Whalers Village, Lahaina and Kapalua. We visited several amazing beaches within 15 min drive. We could walk to Times grocery store, an ABC Store, food trucks and more. The beds were comfortable, and there were no issues with noise. The grounds of Papakea are well maintained. Tiki torches are lit every night, plenty of grills available to use. We also noticed the workers thoroughly cleaning the grills each day. The owner of this unit was responsive to my questions ahead of our stay. The whole experience was smooth and I highly recommend this property!

Arrival and check-in was a breeze. Property is beautiful, and the condo itself is great, just as described! Unfortunately, we lost power and all communications due to the wildfires in Lahaina and surrounding area. The property staff did the best they could under the circumstances, and we are forever grateful for them. Thank you to the Host for communicating with us during this difficult stay, and offering his services to make us as comfortable as possible. We were fortunate to get out of the area after just a few days there, but our hearts and prayers are with Maui and it's people. We don't know if/when we will be able to come back to Maui, but if/when we do, I will definitely consider staying here again, hoping for a better overall experience. Mahalo!!

We loved having a 1st floor condo…made it so easy to come and go to the pool, hot tub and for sitting in the lawn chairs along the sea wall to watch the waves crash. Excellent experience with this property!

The place was all that was advertised, and accommodations were 1st class. I thought I might not enjoy the 1st floor location, but it ended up being perfect. The noise and traffic were not an issue and access to the pool, bbq and beach were a snap.

My family stayed at this condo at Papakea and loved it! The location is perfect and we loved being on the ground unit. We did not hear our upstairs neighbors at all. The views are beautiful, Papakea is right on the water, and the amenities were a bonus for a family with young boys. The owner was a pleasure to work with and was very responsive. We would definitely stay here again. Another reviewer mentioned you can hear people at the elevator when you’re in the bedrooms, and that was the case at times, but for us, it didn’t distract from our experience.

Location: Interior ground floor unit toward the ocean-end of G building [NOT right next to parking lot OR walkways] offering direct access to the beautiful grounds/pool/grills/ocean out the back door instead of messing with stairs. Outdoor furniture is comfy and large enough for a family. While at first glance the upper-level oceanfront buildings may seem enticing, don’t discount views of the lush grounds with trees, flowers, ponds AND the ocean, along with the usability of walk-out access. Plus, G106 has unobstructed sunset views right from the lanai! Quality: Clean and welcoming upon our arrival. Well stocked kitchen with coffee maker, toaster, blender, rice cooker and plenty of kitchenware/gadgets; even a cookie sheet to get the fish to and from the immaculately kept grills in the pool area (note: buy fresh fish, or prepared deliciousness, from The Fish Market Maui a block away). Furniture is in great shape, everything was in good working order, beds are comfy, and bedrooms offer decent storage, oscillating and ceiling fans and A/C. There is also a ceiling fan and A/C in the living room which all worked beautifully in the August heat. Dishwasher and washer/dryer in the unit along with beach towels were a plus. Frig has water in the door and an ice maker. Hideaway couch, if needed. Lots of books/games/beach gear. Communication: Owned by a small, independent group. As such, communication with Don was extremely timely, personal, and effortless. The entire process couldn’t have gone smoother. I didn’t worry a bit. Convenient Papakea Resort: Lush, extremely well-maintained grounds with lots of natural color, well thought out accessways and tree-covered parking. Relatively quiet property with friendly staff, water bottle-filling station, easy check-in/out, and tiki torches from sunset to 10pm. The resort fronts the ocean with a sea wall (not a beach), although if you walk south just past Papakea “L” building you can access the beach right there on property and walk all the way down to Black Rock – perfect at sunrise. 15 minute drive to excellent snorkeling. If you are on the fence, book it while you can and thank me later. Without question or hesitation, I will start here when we return to Maui. As we walked down the beach by all the high-rise condos, I was thankful every day that we found the intimacy of Papakea and G106 specifically. Quiet, beautiful, beyond convenient, in great shape, well-stocked AND excellent owners to work with? Search. Over.

Loved the location. Beach front with the pool and putting green right outside. Condo itself was all we can ask for and well stocked with beach equipment. Thanks you for the wonderful memories!

Property was amazing ...just didn't realize there was no beach...just a rock sea wall...our condo was at the elevator entrance so at night while trying to sleep we heard people loudly talking...but other than that it was amazing

I stayed at Don’s until G106 this May with my husband and almost 2 year old daughter. And it was perfect! The condo itself was absolutely great with all amenities and anything you needed to have a comfortable stay. The master bed was extremely comfortable and the unit had a new and excellent working AC system in all rooms. Additionally the beach gear, new kitchen appliances and washer and dryer all worked great! The ground floor unit was ideal to not lug items up and down stairs multiple times a day and extra nice in the evenings to easily walk out to the grills near the pool and watch the amazing sunset and ocean views. The property itself was maintained immaculately and Papakea staff constantly working hard to keep it looking wonderful. The location was walking distance to some smaller beaches and driving distance to the popular ones. Grocery stores and some restaurants near by if you don’t feel like driving although highly recommend a car rental in Maui to get the most of the island.

The bedroom windows don't really conceal much sound but it's otherwise an amazing property. Pool is just a walk across the grass which is amazing and it's a cozy little condo with a beach view.

Great Location. Could see the Whales play from Patio. Great Tiki Bar next to complex. Only negative was no Pool Towels supplied. Had to use Bath Towels. Otherwise would recommend to all.

We loved the location to the pool and grills and because it was a the bottom floor you didn't have to use the stairs or elevator.

This condo was perfect for our needs! 2 bed 2 bath was great for 2 couples. We were skeptical of being on the ground floor before we arrived but as it turns out it's much more preferable than having to walk through hallways and staircases to get outside! The only downside was that the beaches within walking distance weren't the best, but the good ones are just a short drive away. All in all would definitely stay here again!

Location is fabulous with great ocean views. Entire complex is well kept up with beautiful tropical landscaping, two pools & jacuzzis, lots of space and plenty of recliners to lounge on. The unit is updated with a very nice well-stocked kitchen and lovely bathrooms. Beds were very very comfortable. It had everything needed for a holiday. I usually stay in upper units but this was nice since you can walk right out from the patio to the pool and ocean. It has air which we luckily didn't use as we got nice tropical breezes. It's close to the elevator but most of the time it wasn't a problem. All the units will hear people who are loud and inconsiderate as noise carries. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday, the resort and G106.

Don was quick with email response and info. Property was as advertised and wonderful. It’s a very family friendly condo, close to restaurants, shopping, coffee and a short drive to Lahaina. We had a great time! Thanks

We had a great time! Description of property was spot on! Close to pool, beach, plenty of lawn chairs and the new grills made it very nice to grill out and not have to go out to eat! There is a grocery store and cafes within walking distance as well!!

The condo was beautiful and was very well stocked. Even had beach toys, umbrella and some snorkel gear. The first floor location was great for quick access to the pool and ocean. The only drawback was the noisy neighbors. The bedroom windows don’t keep the noisy out when closed. Not an issue if you are an early riser. But overall we had a great time.

This condo is in the perfect location on Maui. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! This is a great property! We were so grateful for the bedroom a/c as the famous trade winds were uncharacterisitcally non existent the week we were there! It made for very calm waters but very warm and humid nights. We loved the grassy areas right up to the beach wall. I want to bring my grand kids back to this spot!

This property is wonderful for any visitor to Maui. The location of this complex and unit is spectacular. Very clean and maintained unit. The extras that are provided such as boogey boards, beach chairs, putters and games for the kids is a bonus. All the cooking utensils you will ever need are provided.

Stayed here with three long time friends. First time on Maui for 2 of us. The condo was exactly as described and much nicer than some of the other units we looked at in the complex - we even gave the owners contact info to other families we met in the complex. All the amenities we needed. Loved being on the ground floor for easy access to the BBQ, beach and boardwalk. The location of the unit meant the lanai was nicely shaded for most of the day and the sunsets were fabulous to watch. The whole property was well-maintained and secure. Close [walk or drive] to the many great beaches in Kaanapali and Napili. Would stay here again.

The vacation we just had at Papakea Resort in this unit in Maui was excellent for our family. We have two young children ages 6 and 8. The condo is very spacious, it was great having two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The photos say all as it is a beautiful unit. Having the washer/dryer and of course the dishwasher were very useful. After being used to all-inclusives I wasn't sure how I would feel about making our own meals. I have to say that it was a really nice change. Cereal, toast and coffee on the lanai in the morning, sandwiches at lunch, and bbq's so close by made supper cooking a breeze and actually enjoyable to cook and hang out by the pool. Which leads me to how amazing this place is for kids. Loved the ground floor location, just steps away to the pool and the kids loved the fish pond and golfing right off the lanai. The pool was really warm, we spent three days just hanging there because the kids had such a great time and made friends with other kids in the resort. They would spend nearly the whole day in the pool!! The water aerobics and yogalates in the morning were also a great activity to enjoy while looking at the ocean. Nothing beat our morning view, having a cup of coffee on the lanai with a book was so relaxing. I think the location of this unit was just perfect and I couldn't have asked for better. The beach walk which is just steps away from the property were so beautiful, go for a sunset walk with your shoes in hand and toes in the ocean, it is hard to compare any other place we have ever been to the beauty of that. The gardens at the resort were clean and perfectly manicured. The resort location was great as well, the kids loved eating at Bubba Gump's at nearby Lahaina, also playing at Kapalua beach(not far), and the beaches farther away near Kihei were also really good for the kids. The sand is beautiful at all the beaches. We went to the Luau "Drums of the Pacific" and the kids really enjoyed the fire dancing. I would recommend a convertible rental as well, tons of fun and the ocean drives are so beautiful. Everyone was very helpful with any questions that i had and the security at the resort was excellent, when we lost the keys to our rental car they even helped us search, which was above and beyond customer service. I would highly recommend this unit to family and friends and appreciate that we got the chance to have a dream vacation in it.

This unit in Papakea was perfect for our family of 5. Everyone had a bed to sleep in and having 2 bathrooms was wonderful. Many places are not able to accomodate a family of 5, but this unit was ideal for us! There are grills for your use right at the pool. Being on the first floor was terrific for our family. There was so much to do right out the door - putt, watch the koi in the koi pond, play shuffleboard, swim in the pool, or walk on the beach. We played cards on the lanai every day. It was so convenient. This unit was welcoming on the inside and had beautiful views right from the lanai.

My husband and I and our best friends both celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary this month in Maui. We have stayed at the Papakea in other units before but this is the NICEST one! Love the kitchen cabinets and bathroom tile! Nicely kept, very clean and well-stocked for fun! Plenty of boogie boards and many cooler choices! We appreciate that there was a small stock of spices and a few basics in the kitchen. We did a lot of our cooking each day in the condo after our Costco stop. If you are looking for a nice condo... this is it!

We had a wonderful family vacation at Papakae and thoroughly enjoyed staying in this unit. I went with my husband, daughter and Aunite. The unit is great. It's spacious, comfortable and stocked with all the things you need to make it feel like home. It's location is ideal - beside the putting greens and a few feet away from the pool and bbq's. I would recommend this unit to anyone and when we go back we hope to stay there again. It's beautiful.

February 2011
Our stay in this unit at Papakea Resort was absolutely great! We truly enjoyed the wonderfully equipped kitchen and the beautifully remodeled bathrooms. We spent many hours at the sea wall watching the whales and enjoying the sea breezes. We will definitely return to this unit the next time we plan a trip to Maui. Many thanks for the truly wonderful unit.

The condo description and pictures are very accurate. The condo is nicely remodeled, clean, and well maintained. It was very accessible to parking, pool, BBQ, ocean. The beds were comfortable. We had 5 people staying there and we were all comfortable. I absolutely would recommend this property to anyone. My 80 year old mother particularly liked being able to walk out the door to the beach or pool without bothering with the elevators. We had no complaints about anything in the condo. We were there for 12 nights and loved the stunning sunsets.
