You've found the PERFECT place for honeymoons, anniversaries, family reunions and memorable vacations. Our premium oceanfront condo (#L-407)offers a million-dollar view in a private and romantic setting and a front row seat to all the action during whale-watching season.

The Papakea Oceanfront Resort, a hidden Hawaiian gem, is a tropical oasis situated on 13 sprawling acres of lush & beautifully manicured grounds in upscale West Maui with stunning views of Lanai and Molokai Islands. The Papakea is in the quiet neighborhood of Honokawai. It's conveniently located between the Kaanapali and Kapalua world-class golf resorts and is only minutes from Lahaina's shopping, restaurants, and nightlife.

Our condo, in the 'L' building, is only 50 steps from the water's edge, so close you can hear the surf inside! Directly in front of our building is direct access to world-famous Kaanapali Beach. To the south you can stroll miles along the white, sandy beach toward Black Rock, stopping along the way for a swim or some awesome snorkeling.

Our lanai faces the ocean directly and provides unobstructed 180 degree views of gorgeous morning sunrises, enchanting daytime rainbows over the ocean, spectacular nightly sunsets, and incredible shows during whale watching season. (For a Virtual Tour of this unit, visit our website link below.)

Our comfortable home-away-from-home includes remodeled kitchen & bath, upgraded tile flooring, designer paint colors, island-style furnishings and flat-screen TV's. Sleeps four to five with a king-size bed in the master, a queen-size bed in the spacious and private loft, a queen-size sofa sleeper in the living room, and one bathroom. We're on the top/4th floor and have soaring 18' cathedral ceilings lending an open and airy feeling.

**In January 2023, we're installing a 3-zone central AC system to keep you cool & comfortable when the trade winds aren't cooperating. When the trades are blowing, we prefer leaving windows and lanai door open to catch a fantastic breeze in the condo. Five-speed ceiling fans are also in all rooms.

FREE Parking & WIFI.

We enjoyed our stay! The keyless entry system is wonderful - our teenage daughters could come and go as they pleased without having to worry about a key. Everything as described. Little notes by the outlets/ceiling fan switches/inside kitchen cabinets were very helpful. Resort is great! 2 pools, tons of gas grills (we used them often!), can walk right next door if you want a sand beach. Stort drive to Front Street. Owners left many suggestions (dining, shopping, etc) and we used almost every one and all were great. We use VRBO alot, and this was one of our best stays!

We stayed for10 days. The condo was very clean, nicely decorated, comfortable, and perfectly located. Your balcony is directly on the ocean, with AMAZING Views. We saw rainbows, whales and unforgettable sunsets right off the balcony. The resort property is very well maintained. The host pays attention to all of the little details, and the place is well stocked with anything you would need. We would definitely love to come back!

This isn't the first time we've stayed at Mimi's place, and it definitely won't be the last! Mimi is absolutely amazing, so nice, and communicates everything perfectly, and to top it off, her place is perfect for family and/or friends. You cannot beat the seriously ocean-front view that showcases the sunset every night and is the perfect location on Maui. Don't wait on booking!

We enjoyed the property as it was centrally located to where we wanted to be. Having breakfast on the lanai offered a very nice view of Molokai. The proximity to the grocery store was nice as was the proximity to a few restaurants. The pool area was clean and having access to propane grills was a nice feature.

Wow. Mimi made this stay unlike any other. Her communication was flawless and to top it off, she was so sweet to chat with. The condo is in a great spot, easy to access all things Maui. Great amenities at Papakea - we enjoyed the pool and some snorkeling right outside our door. Even a turtle came by during high tide one afternoon! The property is enforcing travelers to show proof of negative COVID tests to use their amenities (as of 4/21) which gave us peace of mind. Beautiful and breathtaking sunsets on the lanai - and powerful trade wind breezes that kept the place cool. This was the perfect space for two couples like us, and it would also work well for a family! Mimi has small touches & pointers all over the condo to make your stay feel like home. We can’t wait to go back!

The view is incredible. Let's put it this way...people that pay for sunset cruises...go for a ride on a boat that provides the same view as the one from this balcony. Mimi (owner) was very good with communication and providing any and all info that you need prior to arrival.

Besides the few lil mishaps as the landline phone not working during duration of stay (in case of emergency) and closet door being taken off, laid against the wall in bedroom and not put back on. The pool and hot tub closed at 9, even on weekends- which seemed too early! Even 1 more hour would of been nice. Overall, it was amazing! 2nd time staying at Papakea. We loved ocean front, nothing beats drinking coffee watching for whales, doing your makeup or watching the sunset from your own lanai. Mahalo!
