Papakea is an unique property. Instead of a high rise it is a set of buildings only 4 levels high. There are three sets of buildings that front the ocean and we are located in the middle section--the perfect location for reaching either of the two swimming pools, putting greens etc. Being Ocean Front you hear waves crashing unto the shore instead of cars in the parking lots.

The property is 13 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds including Koi Ponds, bridges and lots of plants native to the islands.

Our unit, in the highly requested F Building, has gone through a total renovation and is updated regularly to keep in in prime shape. We have a king size bed in the bedroom with a brand new mattress and a brand new 8 inch mattress in the queen sleeper sofa in the living room. We have two TVs: one 42 inch flat screen in the living area and the other 32 In flat screen in the bedroom. We have a DVD/ VHS player and a small DVD library and a reading library. New stainless steel appliances put in 2016 and new washer/dryer put in 2017. Whole unit freshly painted. Just upgraded to a two zone (living room and bedroom) air conditioning unit.

The resort will charge $17 as a resort/parking fee. This is paid directly to the resort

Exactly as described! Nothing beats waking up to that view and just steps away is some great snorkeling. Perfect location and within walking distance to some amazing food spots. Would highly recommend!

We were only here a few nights but the view is great and the location is very central. My kids loved the putting green and the pools. Would definitely go back.

Beach front view just steps from the ocean. Low-traffic beach so not crowded at all. Well maintained unit with plenty of amenities for you to use around the property. Highly recommended.

This was a great condo. The view was amazing, the location was perfect. Very clean property and the owner gives you all the information you need. This was one of our best vacations.

Papakea is the best. Right on the water, lush grass for lounging, quite, close to everything and more. We will definitely book this F bottom floor unit again.

We have stayed at a lot of rental properties over the years but this one was by far, the best!! Everything was extremely clean and exactly as pictured. The absolute best part was the view. Pictures don't do it justice. We spent our mornings enjoying our coffee and in the evenings, we would get takeout from across the street just so we could enjoy the view. We would definitely recommend and would stay here again if we ever find ourselves back in Maui.

Had a little snafu just as we arrived to the room. Jan was very responsive. She immediately replied to my inquiry and was able to rectify the situation. This ground floor unit is in the perfect location on the property. Right next to the pool and hot tub + shuffle board and putting greens. The view though is the most incredible asset. You open your patio door onto the most beautiful landscape. Exactly what you come to the islands for. Perfect sunsets right out your back door. *This unit HAS a mini split a/c in the bedroom. Our friends stayed in a unit that did not have a/c in the bedroom and they were miserable. This one is great.

This was our 5th trip to Maui and we have found our new favorite place to call home! The unit was extremely clean and tidy, came stocked with beach chairs, boogie boards, and umbrellas, along with plenty of towels for beach use. Speaking of the beach... the best part was having your own private beach and snorkel area just steps from the back slider! The unit also had a great A/C system and washer/dryer was super convenient. We definitely will look to stay here again. Thank you for having us!

We have been to Maui about 10 times, and this by far was out favorite property and favorite condo. It was better than the description. Having air condioning in the bedroom and the living room was a big plus! The bed was soooooo comfortable. The unit was well stocked. we loved the location of the unit, and opening the door and having the oceon right there was priceless. We will definately be making this the condo we return to. The property is so close to everything.

We stayed in the Stahl’s unit for a part of our trip on Maui for our honeymoon. The unit was very clean, equipped with everything we needed including cooking tools and snorkel gear. Waking up to the view every morning makes it difficult to leave. Thank you for an amazing stay!! We will be back.

Wonderful ocean views. Might have been perfect except for the wind. All the air on the island was trying to get to the post-hurricane low south of the islands:( Property is beautiful and well-maintained. Ground floor unit is really convenient to get in and out. Mostly hung out here, because why go anywhere else? Nice pools. Hot tubs were actually hot, not 101-102 degrees. Loved the lily ponds.

This location is perfect in every way. Food and fun is walking distance away. And it’s never short of amazing views. Would recommend and look forward to a future stay.

The location was perfect for whale watching right off our lanai. We enjoyed the pools and hot tubs in the evening and rented snorkel gear easily from the concierge.

We loved the location. We sat on the lanai and watched whales all day. Walkability to the grocery store was a major bonus, and Lahaina is both close and far away enough to enjoy. Host was very quick to respond. We will look at availability here before we book anywhere else on this side of the island.

This condo was ideal - walk out on the patio & the sea is at your doorstep. Sipped coffee & watched whales very close to shore. Sunsets are fantastic. Condo is well equipped with everything you need. Highly recommended!

This is a very nicely appointed condo that has everything a person could ask for. I hate to write a good review because I want to keep it as a hidden gem for myself. There was a small mishap that was quickly attended to. The owners were so easy to deal with and was very helpful with all points of attaining this property for my vacation. Thank you very much, J Mason

The location of this unit was perfect. Within walking distance to the boardwalk along the ocean and the unit location within the resort was perfect. Unbelievable views from the unit and proximity to the ocean was unbeatable. Very happy with our stay and Jan was very accommodating regarding our travel issues. Appreciate her availability.

Condo was beautiful and very well appointed. Views of ocean are spectacular from inside the condo and on the patio. Kitchen was new and had everything you needed. Bathroom and Linens were excellent quality. Owner was fabulous and not only was available to discuss anything, she also provided excellent recommendations on restaurants, sites to see, directions, etc. Will definitely rent again on next trip to Maui!!!

The location of this condo is simply unbeatable. This is truly an ocean front unit, close to restaurants, shopping and fantastic beaches. Watching the sunsets every night from the lanai is an incredible experience! The unit itself is nicely updated, well stocked with everything you will need and has a dual zone air conditioner. I cannot reiterate how nice the air conditioning is at night while sleeping. Overall, I would highly recommend this condo, as we had an amazing 10 days in Maui.

We had an amazing stay for three nights at Papakea F-104. The view was world class, the resort was beautiful, and the unit was clean and comfortable. We especially appreciated the comfortable bed and all of the beach equipment available. Can't wait to stay here again!

This review can’t describe how awesome this property is! Easy access, the view will be with us forever!

October 2021
We couldn't have picked a better place to stay. The view was out of this world, it was close to very thing with a short drive. This was our first time to Hawaii and we enjoyed every minute. The condo was perfect it had everything you needed. We loved having our morning coffee and looking at the ocean. The pool sites were great. We are hoping to return in a couple of years we will definitely stay here again.

Jan was very responsive and we loved our stay. Beautiful property with the best view in the resort. We spent a lot of time on the deck - especially watching the sunset. Lots of amenities like foldable chairs for the beach, snorkeling equipment, games, etc. will be going back again!!!

The Papakea resort is absolutely wonderful and where Jan's unit is located on the property could not be any better. You are centrally located to everything and the views from Jan's unit are absolutely stunning. We will be back for sure!!

The accommodations were fantastic! In fact the photos did not do justice to the beauty or the majestic view! We loved sitting outside and seeing rainbows in the morning and stars at night! There were chairs, boogie boards and snorkel equipment accessible for the visit. Would LOVE to return!!

Papakea is a wonderful place to stay. The F-BLDG. is the best for us as there is no parking behind and ocean view is Fab.

We were fortunate enough to stay at this Papakea condo for just over a week. The condo itself is decorated beautifully, clean, updated, and super comfortable. We were particularly impressed with the quality of the sofa bed mattress and the master bed was very comfortable as well. The location and view is unparalleled, the lanai is just steps away from the ocean, with a lovely view of Molokai framed by palm trees. We saw whales several times, many gorgeous rainbows, and the sunsets are amazing. The resort is well maintained and the staff and other guests were very friendly. If you are looking for a west Maui location with a homier feel than the high rise resorts, this is an ideal option. The owner was incredibly responsive and easy to work with. A traditional grocery store and farmers market/natural grocery store are within easy walking distance. The only "negative" depending on what you are looking for is that there is not direct beach access (at least in winter), during our stay the ocean was too wild to feel safe entering it at this location for swimming or snorkeling. BUT, there are multiple great beach access points within a very short drive or longish walk, we were on the beach within minutes each morning. And we felt the location, view, and overall experience at this condo were far superior to other places we've stayed that have slightly closer beach access. We have stayed in many different condos in Maui and this one will now be at the top of our list for a return visit!!

Stayed at this beautiful ocean-front condo thru the Labor Day holiday. The condo is upgraded in all respects. Countertops, cabinets, bathroom, shower, appliances, paint, etc. ...and it's steps to the ocean! The owner is very cooperative and nice to deal with. Comfortable bed and sofa. Kitchen and bathroom have everything you need. Washer& dryer included. A+ and recommended.

Thank you to Jim and Heidi for providing this beautiful slice of paradise. Unit has everything we needed to enjoy our vacation. Great views, comfortable beds and furniture, well equipped kitchen, quiet building, convenient location. Will book L 104 on my next visit to Maui.

This is the third time we've stayed at the Papakea and the second time in Jan's unit. It is by far the best location and we are so glad we stayed here again. It is such a beautiful spot and the convenience of being able to just step onto your lanai and be ocean front is our favorite part. Jan is fabulous to deal with and treated us great. The unit is stocked with anything you need and the Papakea is across the road from the grocery store, so everything is within walking distance. We will definitely stay here again in the future! Thanks so much Jan for your outstanding hospitality and opening your second home to us again! Mahalo

A slice of paradise only 50 feet from the ocean. Nicely maintained ground floor unit where you can sit on the patio and watch the sun go down to the sound of the waves breaking.

We loved the Condo. Close to lot of things and the view is great! Sitting on the lanai and just relaxing was wonderful.

January 2014
This is our 5th stay at the Papakea Resort and our second visit to this specific unit. It is wonderful, 25 feet (+/-) to the seawall. It is magnificent to sit on the lanai and watch the whales and dolphins. We have already reserved for next January, I guess you can say its become one of our favorite places on earth ! The unit is comfortable and kitchen has everything you need. There is a grocery nearby which is a plus. This year we enjoyed a zipline was really fun. There are many to choose from, we chose the one that is near Kaanapali thru Skyline EcoAdventure.
