5 ladies who have been friends for 50 + years stayed in this lovely condo. The view can’t be beat. We saw hundreds of whales while sitting on the ocean front lanai. Had a wonderful time. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

This was a hard trip for us with the devastating fire and so much loss in Lahaina this year. We both felt like we had a peaceful place to just relax and enjoy Maui! We loved being able to just sit on the lanai of our beautiful rental and enjoy the water and whales! (We didn't miss any sunsets!) We loved the pool and beautiful walkway along the beach. Everything we needed was included in the kitchen and it made cooking easier. Mahalo! We hope to book your place again!

Papakea is cool. The property is well located and has everything you need. This unit was ok, could us a better bed/linnens and new carpet in the master. Being ocean front was nice, though this whole property is ocean front really...

This unit at Papakea was perfect. It has a fabulous ocean view and is well stocked. Our family rented 7 units at Papakea and this unit was voted the best. Our host was helpful and responded quickly to our questions. We had a wonderful time and look forward to visiting again!

This condo helped us have a wonderful vacation for my family of four. The location was unbeatable, the condo was clean and well-stocked, the property owner was friendly and responsive, and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. We’d be happy to stay there again some day.

This condo was perfect for our family trip to Maui! It was clean, well stocked and had everything we needed. It even had a good selection of beach toys, chairs, snorkel gear and towels! Bonus that it had a small cooler we could use to go to the beach. The pool and hot tub were perfect for the rainier days when the beach wasn’t suitable for swimming. We would definitely recommend this condo!

Nice condo with lots of supplies and pretty well equipped with anything you need while in Maui. We were entertained daily by the whales performing in the ocean. Such a great view which included evening sunsets. It was a nice feature to have the two bedrooms separated and each couple had a bathroom to themselves. The grounds were nice and we enjoyed the putting greens and pools.

This property was gorgeous and mesmerizing from the moment we came in. The first thing We noticed upon arrival was the ocean waves crashing and the beautiful view. The condo was very comfortable for two couples and a toddler and very well stocked with everything you need. The location was great, close to everything you would want to do on the west side of Maui. Would highly recommend ☺️

Great location with hard to beat views of the ocean and other islands right out the living room. Unit was clean and well stocked with linens and essentials.

First this is the most organized kitchen I have ever seen in any rental, things were arranged very well and it was very stocked, nothing really additional needed. The view is great from the master and the living room. Would recommend it to anyone!


Michael K.

This condo is exactly as advertised and you can’t beat the location. I would recommend stocking up at Walmart by the airport after you land. Buy essentials like shampoo and paper towels with your groceries to save yourself a trip. Great unit overall. Highly recommend.

Fabuolous location and well appointed condo. Exactly as photos depict. Comfortable beach themed decorations with everything you could possibly need in the kitchen provided. Lots of additional beach povisions - chairs, cooler, boogie boards etc. Location perfect. Quiet resort, nice atmosphere and not crowded with too many people. Views spectacular - my favorite part - lying in bed listening to the waves. Thank you for sharing this beautiful piece of paradise. We hope to be back again. Mahalo.

We had a wonderful stay at this condo! The condo itself is furnished with everything you could possibly need, and is in a great location in the complex. The resort is so well taken care of, and has a wonderful beach and pools! You are within walking distance of a grocery store and minutes from Lahaina. Very quick drives to dining and entertainment too. This was our 3yr old grandson’s first big trip, and being in such a homey setting really helped him feel comfortable and relaxed, which in turn let the adults have a great vacation! We all agreed it was the best yet of any condo we’ve stayed at for our Maui visits.

Wonderful property. Super clean, comfortable furnishings, well equipped kitchen, lots of extras making for an extremely pleasurable stay. Convenient location to virtually everything! Thanks Robin, Dana and Christine! Oh...and spectacular sunsets!!!

We have been coming to Maui for 20 plus years and this was one of the best rentals we have stayed in. The location was perfect- access to everything from shopping to beaches. And the views!! Totally amazing to literally be 50 yards from the ocean. Such a great treat to have cocktails on the lanai and watch the sunsets, then fall asleep listening to the waves. The condo was perfect for our family of 4. Comfy beds and a fully stocked kitchen. Thank you for sharing your Maui home, we will be back!

We loved our stay. Only problem is the washer was broken. We had to leave a lot of laundry as a result of the washer being broken and she was very nice when I told her. We want to rent this house again. Location was excellent! House was clean and well stocked with everything.

Condo was awesome - right on the waterfront. Hosts anticipated every need - from Kleenex and shampoo in the bathrooms to seasonings in the kitchen. Wonderful resort amenities (tennis, pickle ball, pool, hot tub.) Pretty resort grounds - easy parking.

This condo was absolutely beautiful. You can’t get any closer to the ocean! We watched the sunset every night from the balcony. The condo is spacious, clean and very comfortable (except the 2nd bedroom is a bit on the cramped side). The kitchen was well stocked for all your cooking needs. The resort was beautifully landscaped and I wish we’d had more time to enjoy all the amenities. We did swim and even used the bbq grill one night! We would definitely stay here again!!!

The condo was exactly as advertised. We were right on the beach with a spectacular view (particularly at sunset). The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen was well epuipped, and the living area was great for relaxing. I can't say enough good things about our stay. Thank you.

Our stay at this property the first week of April was amazing. The oceanfront view is as good as it gets in Maui. Can't get much closer than this. The condo was plenty spacious enough for our family of 6 (3 adults, 3 children). The resort accommodations were great for the entire family. We used the pickleball courts, mini putt, the pool, and the grills. The location of the condo was perfect. It was very close to the boardwalk to head south for a walk and very close to the food trucks for a quick lunch or dinner. We enjoyed bringing dinner back to the condo and enjoy the amazing views of the sunset while whale watching. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone. Brian M Michigan

We enjoyed every minute of being in Maui & staying at this condo. It was perfect for our family of 6. The grounds are gorgeous & everything is so well taken care of. We felt so comfortable in the condo & everything we needed to cook meals was available. The view was absolutely gorgeous … nothing can compare to hearing the waves while you sleep! The owners were fabulous & answered my many questions quickly & efficiently. We hope that we can come back soon!

The condo was perfect, it had everything we needed. The view from every room in the condo was breath taking. We loved sitting in the lanai listening to the waves, watching whales and the sunset. We will return.

Perfect location for all there is to do on Maui, especially the snorkeling, golf and other activities in the Kapalua/Kaanapali areas. Nearby restaurants are also excellent and varied. Bring your binoculars if you’re staying during whale season.

March 2022
This was a great condo with the best view!!! Great space with comfortable beds. Having a cup of coffee and breakfast on the Lanai in the mornings and drinks as the sunset, never gets old. The pool and hot tub and stairs at the seawall is very close, really just a few steps. It was very easy to communicate with the owner Melanie and she was always quick to respond. Definitely would stay here again.

L202 was home for 15days. The condo is stocked with everything we needed for cooking. Comfy beds. The lanai is perfect from morning to night. Hope to come back soon. Mahalo!!

Comfortable place with everything you need for the perfect family vacation. Loved the location and had no problems. The only two things I could say that could use some improvement is the windows in master are very leaky with air and therefore always extremely as the location is amazing so you do hear the rushing waves. Not a horrible problem to have! But, it would have been nice to quiet the outside just a bit for sleep. Also the master mattress is a bit lumpy. Other than that it was just right and I would recommend to anyone for an amazing stay in a perfect location to everything! Thank you for having us!

This is an amazing rental. Nicer than the pictures, well stocked and very comfortable. Beautiful property with a hottub and pool. Caught some sunsets from the lanai and even a passing storm one night over Molokai. Would absolutely come back again. Thanks!

The property is oceanfront. We loved hearing the waves all day/night. The property manager kept in contact with me up to the day we arrived. Five star experience


Scott L.

Can't say enough great things about the property, amenities and our stay in Maui. Definitely would consider staying here again. From the pool and hot tub access, to the grills and the breathtaking views right from the lanai. I can still hear the waves and feel the warm ocean breeze!

This was one of the condos we rented for our daughter and her family. It’s a good layout for a family of four. It was well equipped and they loved the views.


Edwin A.
October 2021
I can't recommend this unit enough. We actually had to switch properties mid trip because our previous rental was not very toddler friendly. Communication and check-in was a breeze. The unit had everything we needed plus more. Very clean and updated. Views of the ocean from all corners of the place...even the bathroom! We also enjoyed the fact that the property was much more laid back and quiet than others further south.


Jean H.

Beautiful condo, equipped with everything we needed, amazing views and convenient location. We appreciated that the resort was a little quieter and we could walk to the busier areas.

As advertised! Love Papakea and this unit in particular. Everything went as planned and advertised. The unit is on the far end of the property so is quiet and peaceful. We highly recommend!

Aloha! We love Papakea! We’ve stayed here 3 times and have enjoyed ourselves thoroughly! Beautiful property with well kept grounds, friendly/helpful staff, and family friendly resort. This time we rented an Ocean front condo with spectacular views! We love staying in a condo because it comes fully equipped with all the essential needs of a kitchen, washer/dryer, and other beach gear. Our property manager made sure our condo was well stocked, the kitchen and bathrooms are nicely remodeled, and all bedrooms have an AC unit which is imperative. Papakea is close to all major destinations in Lahaina/ West coast area. We will definitely be back to our home away from home! Mahalo and A Hoi Hou!

I opened the door and went straight to the balcony for that VIEW! It is shaded in the morning for sipping coffee and a front row seat for sunset. I was lulled to sleep in the master bedroom by the waves crashing on shore and woke in the morning to that beautiful VIEW. I MISS IT! Low tide presents the opportunity to explore the rocky reef. Lots of urchins. We used the pool, putting green and grills. All clean and well maintained. Seven-day stay with no problems. Made great memories.


Heather O.
August 2021
Exactly as described and expected. Clean, comfortable, well appointed and with a great view. Very nice, mid-range complex. It was nice to have lower density than some of the other hotels/high rises. We did struggle a bit to find the right balance of enjoying the fabulous views from the windows while also limiting heat from having the blinds open, or managing AC in the heat of the summer when you have a mix of people on the patio and indoors. But the view, privacy, and proximity to the water made the minor challenge worth it, and I wouldn’t hesitate to book it again. The property manager was responsive to questions we had.


Melodie M.
August 2021
First the view from the patio…. Beautiful!!! Great location. Owner was always very responsive. We learned to play pickle ball as a family and are now addicted! We stayed in Kihei for two days after our stay here and that place just did not compare to this place. I loved the kitchen space where we would gather all the time for breakfast or snacks. Would stay here again and recommend it to anyone I know!!!!

Over all good. Christine was excellent in addressing an issue we had with a plumbing problem

I was thrilled when I opened the door and seen the view. I had a few ladies that had never been to Hawaii and I wanted them to have a great experience. It was perfect. got to watch the sunset every evening, it was beautiful. The condo was very clean. The master bed was very comfortable. We had 8 ladies and it slept all of us just fine. There are beach items to use in the closet which came in handy. The condo has a ocean lawn with a wall and over to the left is a small beach area. I would definitely stay here again. Great location. The only thing that was a downer was the heat pump unit on the patio blew very warm air. Thank You for sharing you lovely condo with ladies from OREGON.

After this crazy year, this vacation was a welcome relief for our family. Theconco was as advertized. The closeness of the ocean was special and the whales were really active.

We had a much needed getaway and this was a wonderful setting for it. Not a fancy resort with bars and restaurants, and huge pool complexes; the setting was beautiful and peaceful, and just what we needed. About as close to the water as you can get, and the sound of the surf was our music all week. We had 4 adults, and the rooms worked well for us. The condo was clean, comfortable and well equipped. We ate in as much as possible to minimize potential Covid exposures, and the nearby grocery store and well equipped kitchen and pool-side grills made that easy. While there is no beach at this resort, there is beach that is just down the walking path, and you are a short drive to some really great beaches. There is a nice lawn by the ocean though, and the pools weren’t crowded and had lounge chairs at-the-ready. The owners were great at working with us in the event that travel was restricted to the island due to Covid, and that gave us all the confidence we needed to book. We felt very safe traveling to Maui, and during our stay - with mask use being enforced on property and around the island. Condo staff were great at keeping common area surfaces clean as well. We’d come back again, and would recommend it to others without hesitation.

We had a wonderful time staying at this unit in Papakea. The check-in process was a bit laborious because of COVID and we avoided the communal pools. However everything else was near perfect. The location is ideal with close proximity to Lahaina and Kapalua. There are several easily accessible beaches nearby. The parking was plentiful. Our hosts, Melenie on VRBO and Christine on Maui are both incredibly nice and very responsive. The unit itself is so well set up with everything you might need, enough beds that our son wasn’t on a couch, and the unit has air conditioning in all the rooms, even though we really didn’t need it in the master or living room. Last and perhaps best, is the jaw dropping view as you enter the condo. The ocean is right in front of you and every time I came in to the place, I just felt my spirits rise. The island of Lanai, the rainbows, the stars, and the whales, which were cruising past... it is a paradise, and we feel so lucky to have been able to have this experience. Thanks!

We had a wonderful stay in L-202. Everything was as shown in the photos and we were very pleased. We did not lack for anything in the unit - they have thought of everything. And what is not to love about the location! We had an issue with the toilet on the second day, but the property manager promptly resolved. In these challenging times, we were grateful for this much needed vacation away.

We had a wonderful stay in Maui. The condo was able to accommodate four adults and three children ,11 and under. Plenty of places for everyone to sleep, and a breathtaking view. We saw whales every day and could easily get to shopping and the beach. So thankful this was our last vacation before, the craziness started!


Meade B.
March 2020
We had a wonderful stay at Melenie's unit, it was so relaxing starring out at the islands and watching a multitude of whales perform their acrobatics. The condo was comfortable, clean and well stocked and Melanie was easy to reach if we had any questions, we'll definitely return as our trip was perfect.

We have been to Maui 3 times now and by far this was our best spot. The view each morning and night was fantastic. The whales jumping right out front of the property was fantastic as well. Enjoyed everything about the resort.

From the time you pull on the property your mesmerized by all the plam trees and flowers!! Then you open the door to the rental and OMG THE VIEWS!! We are a family of 8 that stayed and had plenty of room. Fully stocked kitchen was a dream to cook in. (But you definitely need grilling utensils!!) Thanks for having a place that felt so comfortable and had such a homey feel to it..We will definitely stay with you again.. The Family From Ohio Says Mahalo!!

This condo was a perfect fit for our family of 6 with room to spare. The owners had taken care of everything we needed and if we had questions, the manager was readily available. We had a wonderful vacation here and if we go back to Maui, I would stay here every time!



January 2020
This is a great property. Both the resort and the location of the unit are perfect. The unit is spacious and clean with modern appliances, it came well-stocked with everything we needed. Our stay was very enjoyable and we look forward to renting again.

This is our second stay in this beautiful oceanside condo just north of Ka'anapali Bay. Almost the entire condo, except the back bedroom, face the ocean with its gentle pounding surf. It was family friendly for our toddler. We did not even rent a car but walked 5-10 minutes to the grocery stores, fish market and farmers' market. There is playground nearby. And the low rise Papakea condo complex with beautiful grounds has two pools, two hot tubs, putting greens, shuffle board and more. There is access to the Ka'anapali Beach Walk that extends many miles south along the public access beaches. We plan to return to this property.


Katrina W.

This condo was perfect for our 2-week vacation. Plenty of room, we’ll stocked, and the location couldn’t be better!
