This unit was perfect for our family stay. We were on vacation with our adult children and their partners. The three bed, three bath layout gave each couple plenty of personal space while allowing us to enjoy time together as well. The view from our balcony was incredible. Many people from our travel group came to our unit specifically to see it.
Janet was easy to work with. She was flexible when we needed to make a change to our departure date and she clearly communicated everything we needed to enjoy our stay.
The end of our stay coincided with the devastating fire in Lahaina. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Maui.
This beautiful condo had everything we needed for our stay for my husband and I and our two adult children. We had our own bedrooms, bathrooms, a beautiful view. We saw dolphins and turtles from our view on the balcony. The kitchen was well-equipped. There were beach towels and beach chairs, a small cooler. The owners were great communicators. We would definitely stay here again!
This was an amazing oceanfront condo in one of the best locations in Maui! It is well maintained and equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Janet was super friendly, a pleasure to work with and answered any questions we had during our stay. I would highly recommend for any family looking for a great condo, property and beautiful sunsets. This was our favorite family vacation, and we will definitely be coming back! Thank you, Janet! Mahalo for everything!

Our first impression was awesome. Until we realized that the condo was infested with roaches. All 10 days of our stay, we encountered roaches. Morning, noon and night we battled with them in the kitchen. They were every where,even coming out of the electrical outlets.
This was our 7th trip to Maui and we've never encountered such a sight.
I called Janet/owner to advise her of our encounters and she said the roaches were normal and had the condo serviced regularly. Janet became very defensive and started up come up with excuses, then threatened to have us kicked out because we were unhappy with the condo. And the fact that the exterminator had access to our unit without approval when we were out was also upsetting.
The complex over all was beautiful and all the staff/workers were outstanding. But we will never stay here again.
The owner Janet, was very unprofessional and seemed to be upset and put out that I called during her visit with her 90 yr. old mother's birthday.
I will be sure to tell all my friends about this place.
Comfortable beds, so great for all 3 bedrooms to also have a bathroom, plenty of sit around space & the view was spectacular! Can be a little warm especially in back bedroom & loft but fans are provided. Owner was easy to contact & very responsive.
We had a wonderful time! 6 Adults, the condo and location was perfect. Couldn’t ask for anything more. Spectacular view with awesome sunsets. Only downside is that the second bedroom and loft gets pretty warm, but lots of fans so it’s not unbearable. Would highly recommend!!!
The property was absolutely gorgeous! Check in was very easy, everyone who worked on the property was so nice and welcoming. The unit surpassed our expectations. It had literally everything we needed for the week! Very clean and well stocked. And the VIEW!! You cannot beat that view!!!! Location was perfect! The owner was very easy to communicate with and super super helpful! Definitely will book again!!
The condo was everything advertised and more. The view was fantastic. The condo kitchen had more equipment than one could expect. Papakea was absolutely beautiful and maintained gorgeously.
We had 6 adults 3 never been to Maui- Loved the location view and place here wonderful spot nice facilities at Resort -Had several outings to great attractions on Maui -
Best Location on West Side-
GIVE IT A TEN !!!
Came to Maui for son's wedding, so had family staying with us. Perfect location and condo was as advertised. Would stay again.
This property is comfortable everything you would need is in the unit the view is magnificent would definitely stay there again
Our family of 6 loved our stay here. The condo was perfect, offering all the extras we appreciate. The ocean view is priceless! It was our family’s most favorite vacation yet! We took full advantage of exploring all Maui offers. Thanks for sharing your condo!
Spent 10 fantastic days at Janets Condo. Great communication. Very clean spacious for our family. Views were fantastic. This condo will not disappoint.
The oceanfront location enabled us to enjoy the coast and migrating whales every morning and evening. Incredible! Well stocked and very comfortable.
We loved everything about Janet’s place. It was spacious and had everything we needed. The view is spectacular! We watched whales and the sunset from our balcony every day. The beach has beautiful sand but is also quite rocky so we were glad to have our water shoes with us. The property is beautiful and both Janet and the front desk staff were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. We highly recommend Janet’s place and would definitely love to stay here again.
The property was exactly (maybe even better) than described. The bed’s, especially the primary bedroom was THE MOST comfortable than any rental I’ve stayed. The kitchen had everything, including some essential seasonings and foil/baggies that came in handy. The view was spectacular and searching for whales with the included binoculars made late afternoons fun! I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a ocean view 3 bedroom condo! It checked all our boxes and then some!
We had a great vacation. The property was very clean staff very helpful. Beautiful beaches. We traveled all the way around the Island. Loved every adventure. Ate all all different places Food Trucks to Pacifico. You can't go wrong. The Condo was perfect. Plenty of room for the 6 of us. Every thing we wanted for cooking was all there. Thank you so very much for a wonderful family vacation.
The property was clean, spacious, and had an amazing view! Can’t wait to go back!
Papakea is amazing. The location is great and the resort is very well maintained. It’s a quiet location and very family friendly. This is our 2nd year staying at Papakea but our 1st time in this particular condo.
The good: the view. The view does not get any better. If an ocean front view is important to you, this is a perfect condo. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen is updated and is well stocked. We had a few maintenance issues while at the condo and the host is super responsive.
The bad: we were 6 adults and it was pretty cramped. There is too much furniture and there are knick knacks everywhere on every surface. I personally needed more functional space such as shelves in the bedrooms or hooks to hang towels and robes.
The upstairs loft bedroom had no privacy (missing a wall and door). The 2nd bedroom has no a/c so the door had to remain open 24/7 to allow air in. So 2/3 bedrooms basically have no privacy. The living room furniture is outdated and has an odor. It needs to be either replaced. We didn’t feel comfortable sitting on it. Although it was “clean” when we checked in, it wasn’t deep cleaned. To be honest, I find this to be the case with most VRBO’s and this is probably the last one that I’ll stay in.
Overall, I would not choose to stay in this particular condo again because of the lack of a/c in all rooms, as well as the size of the condo.
The condo is even nicer than in pictures! We are a family of 5 and it was super comfortable and spacious with 3 bedrooms, beds for us all. 2 twins in the loft upstairs, and other bedrooms on the main floor both with king size beds. 3 bathrooms. The ceilings are very high in the bedrooms and main living room so it feels extra spacious , compared to the other suites we've stayed in at Papakea. The master bedroom has all windows that face the ocean so it's a dream to wake up to - you hear the waves all night. The patio is so lovely as you are literally almost on the ocean. There was always a breeze coming in so we didn't use A/C but they do have it. The condo was very neat and tidy and had all the supplies you need (I did have to buy some laundry detergent though and paper towel! but not a huge deal). Janet the host was super responsive. The condo grounds are also great with lovely swimming pools, tennis courts and pickel ball - which we all played - and you can walk along the boardwalk for quite some ways. Would definitely come back! Thank you Janet and family for allowing others to rent this!
The location and condo itself were wonderful. The views are spectacular, and there was more than enough space for the six adults traveling in our group. The property has nice amenities with the pool and hot tub, and the condo had a good number of additional items like towels and beach chairs for use.
A few, very minor inconviences. We weren't able to check in until 4pm, and the checkout time listed in the booklet in the unit is 10:30, rather than the 11am we had been told previously. We also had an unexpected visit from the exterminator service, which left us unable to access the unit for a couple hours one afternoon.
I'd definitely return to this property if we're ever able to make it back to Maui!
Fantastic location with a view and all the amenities one could ask for. The host was great to work with. I highly recommend this property.
Papakea is a lovely resort and the condo was perfect! We couldn’t have been happier with our anniversary vacation and are grateful to have had the opportunity to stay at Janet’s wonderful ocean front property. Mahalo!
The view was phenomenal! The unit is very well stocked with kitchen necessities and beach items. Loved our stay! Priceless memories made at this beautiful property and Island.
Loved everything about this property. The condo was as advertised. Beautifully decorated with any amenity we needed. The view from the Lanai was stunning. The grounds staff were very friendly and made it a point to not interfere with our stay. The pool was amazing. The beaches beautiful. The unit was in close proximity to all our activities.
The beach towels supplied were very plush. Almost felt bad taking them to the beach. Almost.
Perfectly situated. Amazing views.
On arrival, the unit was spotless, and nicer than the pictures portrayed.
Top floor, facing west - best view of sunsets, beach, & water!
Great, clean, fully equipped kitchen - we mostly snacked at the unit, and prepped for lunches on the go, eating most dinners out, but the kitchen and two tables (one on the lanai) would have served well for intimate or family meals.
At home, we sleep with fans for background white noise. Here we slept with windows open, and only the sound of peaceful breaking waves to lull us to and through great nights of sleep! We had two small problems beyond prediction or management control that Janet worked to get resolved ASAP and to our great satisfaction.
Our biggest disappointment was that we could only spend a week at this beautiful home! Next time . . . 10 days minimum!!
Our family of 5 adults loved staying at this condo overlooking the ocean! The condo was clean, had everything we needed and we enjoyed the BBQ's and pool on the property as well as snorkeling nearby. Hope to go back again some day!!
We loved all the amenities that Papakea has to offer. Right on the Ocean, ABC store across the parking lot. Times Market across the street. Great Family vacation.
We really enjoyed our stay at L402 in Papakea. It is right on the ocean, so the view is great. It was my wife and me and 3 boys. There were plenty of beach towels, chairs, snorkeling gear for all of us, which was nice. Didn’t need to communicate much with the property owner, but she was very prompt when we did have questions.
It feels hot in there when you get there at check in, but with the AC on and the cool down at night, we always slept very comfortably.
Overall, it was a great choice, highly recommend it.
Nice condo with a great view and nice ocean breezes. Air conditioning wasn't sufficient to cool entire unit. The owner quickly replaced a broken toaster. Papakea Resort was well maintained and a great place to stay.
We loved our stay at the oceanfront condo. The property is loaded with all the amenities you coukd possibly ask for, and is convenient to fun destinations like the aquarium and downtown Lahaina. I'd recommend this property for families visiting Maui.
Great condo. It is an end unit with spectacular ocean views from the balcony. The condo has a well stocked kitchen and plenty of beach necessities, which was a plus.Resort is well kept and clean. It is an easy walk to a grocery store and places to eat. The owner was responsive and very nice. We would stay again
The superb views, excellent location, and responsive owner rated 5 Stars.
The ants in the kitchen, poor central air, and property management staff are 3-4 stars. I bought a couple of rotating fans and a box fan to help, but in August, the heat may be an issue.
It is the absolute best area IMO to stay on the island. The sunsets are beautiful, and the beaches are fantastic for snorkeling. This was our second stay, and we would recommend this property if you're looking for these amenities while in Maui.
property was great, location great
Amazing ocean view and sunsets and very close to market and restaurant in walking distance was Able to see a whale 1 evening and a beautiful rainbow one morning. Can’t wait to come back 😀
We had a wonderful time relaxing Oceanside. We were able to see a whale from the balcony. Wonderful place to stay with a variety of food options within walking distance. The only con we could find was the back bedroom had a hard time cooling down. Overall great time and experience.
It was nice to wake up to such a beautiful view every morning! Everything about the condo was great for my family.
Wonderful stay for my wife and two adult kids! Always enjoy Papakea Resort!
Perfect location in a wonderful resort. Great reception at the front desk, lot of activities at the resort. The condo was lovely, well stocked, very clean and beautifully decorated. We had a wonderful time with many options very close including beaches, stores, restaurants, walking paths, and whale watching. It was great to have thee bathrooms and the loft was great for the two teen age girls. The master bedroom was very spacious with wall to wall ocean view.
Janet, thanks for sharing your piece of Paradise with our family for the week. We will be back!!!
We loved this property for our extended family. The loft was great for our adult daughter. We spent Most of our time on the lanai watching the whales. Everything was clean and comfortable. Well stocked with the essentials. We would love to stay in the unit again. Thank you!!
Fabulous views and fabulous condo.
Great time with family. Property is very nice with unbeatable views! Highly recommend.
Fantastic location and property! Did not disappoint
We spent the holidays in this property, and we could not have asked for a better location. The condo was very spacious and well appointed. We enjoyed the BBQs by the pools, cocktails on the balcony watching the sunset. The property has a supermarket right across the street. We could not have asked for a better location!
Upon arrival, the check-in process was smooth and quick, and the location of the particular building (L) was the best on the property. The grounds are deceivingly large and well-maintained, and although we didn't have much time, there was plenty to do on the property. The unit itself was very well furnished and had a beautiful view. The condo was well maintained, included all supplies and kitchen needs and very warm and welcoming. I would love to stay here again, and my compliments go out to the owner for having such a beautiful property!
Great view of the ocean. Although you cannot see the sunrise or sunset because of the location, the view of the ocean is great. We even spotted some humpback whales.
We had 5 adults stay in this condo and it was very comfortable for all. The owner was quick to address a couple of small issues which we really appreciated. The master bedroom is on the ocean side and it was fantastic to fall asleep with the sound of the waves. The view is incredible from both the living room and master. We love Papakea and had a great time!
It was amazing
Condo is fully stocked with everything you need from kitchen items to beach gear. Absolutely perfect location with 24/7 beach views. Love that the unit had 3 bathrooms; one for each bedroom-that’s a rare find and so helpful.
This is a lovely condo right on the water! Amazing to be so close to the ocean and watch the sea turtles from the Lanai. Janet the host was very helpful and quick to respond to messages. Noisy neighbors were a bit of a bummer, yet they were all nice folks:) Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home - Mahalo!!
The property and location could not have been better! Beautiful ocean views, every amenity we needed and perfect location to all the beaches and excursions! We will be back for sure!!!!
Everything was as described in the listing. Extras such as snorkel gear, cooler, and beach chairs were a great plus. Grocery store across the street. Washer and dryer was a good addition also. Prime location and definitely room for 6 people.
Loved our sunset every night, the tide pools below, the beaches, the pool, the shuffle board and easy access to many adventures.
We loved the location of the property, and the view was unbeatable! The resort location was also low-key and great for families. The beach was beautiful, but rocky. So, bring swim shoes. The owner left lots of snorkeling gear to use which was great. The primary bedroom and living/kitchen area cooled off well. The back bedroom was very hot as was the loft. The sunsets there were amazing, and we would definitely stay there again, even given the few things mentioned above.
This place is amazing. Unit has a gorgeous view. Great location on Maui, great resort. Clean. My kids loved the pool, putting greens and shuffle board. Location is close to supermarket and a few take out food options. Food trucks next door are a bonus too. The only drawback was the people in the unit next door on their lanai and being loud either very late or super early as where their lanai is is right next to master bedroom window where sleeping. But a sound machine helped a little with that.
Amazing views, incredible ocean front property! The resort provides very nice amenities and seems to be well managed.
It’s important to note that although this property is presented as a 3 bedroom, the 3rd bedroom is actually a sleeping loft lacking the privacy of a 3rd bedroom. It does not provide quiet for a late sleeper. Probably great for kids but may not provide comfort for adults. Also, the sleeping loft is always very warm and requires the use of the fans provided.
Full well equipped nicely updated kitchen and updated baths.
Snorkel equipment, beach chairs and beach towels provided.
This condo had everything my family needed for our Maui vacation. The view from the lanai was breathtaking. The condo itself was beautiful and stocked with anything you might need from kitchen supplies to beach equipment. Beds were super comfy! We would highly recommend this condo to any family needing a 3 bedroom space. The owner was GREAT at communication! We will definitely stay here again when we go back to Maui! Thanks for a lovely stay, Janet!
We had a vacation of a lifetime. We spent 4 days on Maui and loved our time at this condo. The views were stunning. The beach was nice. We couldn't access the beach at high tide but found some sand just a few feet away. At low tide you can walk out pretty far and see lots of sea creatures. The condo had everything we needed including snorkel gear, beach towels and chairs. The grocery store was close which was nice. Kaanapali beach/black rock was just a mile or so down the road and the parking garage at the Sheraton worked well. Our host was wonderful to work with and quickly answered any questions we had. Thank you again for a wonderful stay. I only hope we can return someday.
Beautiful clean condo with wonderful view. Beds were great. We had an amazing time!
The location can not be beat. You wake up every morning looking at the ocean. This place has everything. Other reviews mention that the back room was hot. It is not that hot if you leave the window open and fan on as the owners have said. We took my 84 year old mother in law and she enjoyed it as well as my 18 year old son. Again, you can not beat the location
