Perfect location for sunset. Had everything we needed. Nice kitchen. We will stay here again
Accurate description. Right on the water which was great! It’s not a private patio because people walk by and sit for sunset or laying out, but we didn’t mind. Great for couples or families. Unit was clean, older but clean. We had a plumbing issue the first day but owner had it resolved in a few hours. Location was great, could walk the beach to a few restaurants or quick drive. We would return, it was all very easy.
We love Papakea. Feels like u have your own private beach just outside your door. The view is spectacular. Sunsets every night. You can cook in the kitchen and save or walk to the food trucks. We will be back!
Bed was comfortable, plenty of towels and beach supplies and comfortable outdoor furniture. The furniture in the unit was not very comfortable and a lot of the light bulbs were out. Also the window coverings for the slider do not glide easily and the bedroom closet door was off the track. Just needs some minor maintenance.
First impression, ahhhhh! When we entered this unit, we were welcomed with gentle air conditioning, a fresh, clean aroma, and a million dollar view! Bob called to check in a couple days after our arrival which was so thoughtful! The unit had everything we needed and more. We visited for a wedding, and as expected, our unit was the most popular for morning coffee on the lanai! Thank you for sharing your paradise with us, we will return and spread the word!
Beautiful property! I’ll be back!
Ground floor, ocean front property was perfect for our 7 night stay in Maui! Clean, quiet, and exactly as advertised. Highly recommend.
Had an amazing time at the condo. We've stayed at Papakea before so we were familiar with the resort and knew the condo's location would be perfect - and we weren't disappointed! Bob reached out prior to or trip and touched base while we were there to make sure we had what we needed. We've already booked for next year!
Great location, fantastic communication, and wonderful views. Don’t hesitate to book!
We loved our stay! Very well stocked unit, nice and clean and comfortable! Just steps from the ocean! We loved hearing the waves crash right out our door! Truly a gem and would highly recommend this place to anyone looking in Maui!
The condo is exactly as advertised - walk-out, ocean front unit. We sat on the patio every morning and again at sunset. People are always walking by so it's not as private as it might look but you have the best seat in the house. The unit was clean, comfy bed, full kitchen with pots and pans to use for cooking. There are some beach accessories (chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, 2 kids towels), no cooler. Bob will mail you the check-in info, unfortunately I misplaced the letter and then we didn't have any info when we got to Lahaina but Bob was quick to text me the info. Also, no check-out info - at least that we received. But Bob called and texted when he needed to communicate with you. We would stay here again and recommend Bob's unit to anyone visiting Maui.
As advertised- walk out to the ocean from the unit, stunning views of Molokai and Laini. Conveniently located to Lahaina and Kapalua. Unit is well-appointed and Bob was very responsive to queries and reached out to make sure we were having g a good time. Great place to spend time in Maui!
The condo and view was beautiful! Not one complaint about our stay- it was fully stocked with everything you needed and location is great. We enjoyed our honeymoon!!
We were a party of 4 couples that stayed at Papakea. We all rented our own condos. Roberts condo was definitely the best of the 4. We all gathered to watch sunsets and to watch a football game. I have stayed at Papakea for over 20 years and Robert was the best owner I have ever dealt with. He called to introduced himself and got back to me quickly when I had questions. I will definitely go back!!
Loved the location, and the amenities. The condo has everything you need. We really enjoyed out time there.
Our stay at Robert's place was nothing short of AMAZING. The property of Papakea was super clean, the staff were very accommodating, the property itself constantly has workers cleaning the area and keeping it in the best shape, which we found very impressive. Robert's condo was the perfect place to stay! It comes equipped with really everything you need, spices, cooking wear, a BLENDER (great for making pina's), and so much more :) We caught the sunset on the patio every night! This place is awesome 10/10, if you're looking for a 1 bdrm condo to stay in Maui, this is the place to go!
We loved every minute we were on the property. Just sitting on the lanai was heavenly. We ate our meals, enjoyed wine, and watched the sunset daily. Didn't have to go anywhere else. The perfect vacation. We're hoping to be back soon!
We had such an awesome experience in this Condo. The patio area has awesome, unobstructed views of the ocean. You are on a bit of a sea wall but to the right & left is a quick walk to a sandy area and easy access to get in the ocean. The location was perfect, walking distance to a grocery store, coffee, and restaurants. Our favorite in walking distance was Okazuya & Deli Honokawai, The Fish Market, & the deli at The ABC Store!!
Also, it was very easy to get to some of the great Kaanapali beach’s, Black Rock, Whalers Village, Lahaina, etc.
The inside of the condo was perfect, kitchen was great, master bedroom had a comfortable bed, and the unit had everything we needed, towels, beach chairs, beach umbrella, & kitchen items.
There was some mosquitoes in the condo, but the property will come out and spray upon request (just ask the front desk). The master bedroom got plenty cool enough at night.
The property was great, two nice pools and jacuzzis, really nice tennis courts, shuffle board, putting greens, and fun on site activities. The property is well taken care of, and is very quiet at night other than the sound of the beautiful ocean, of course.
Overall, had an excellent time staying in this condo, we would definitely book again. Bob was responsive and helpful! Would recommend!
The views from this property are spectacular! Housekeeping could do a better job at cleaning however.
We loved the location of this property. Everything in west Maui was so close. We loved being able to walk outside our patio and be right next to the water. There is not a beach below the wall but that didn’t matter to us. This property states they have AC but be aware that it isn’t a normal AC unit. It is like a hotel, and that wall unit is in the family room where the master bedroom is at the opposite end. There is a fan in the room but it was still pretty warm. Overall, a great stay!
We were so impressed and look forward to coming back. Thank you!
Really enjoyed my stay at this property. I wanted to place that I felt comfortable since I was traveling alone. Great location to all activities, shopping and restaurants. Everything I needed was availability in the units. And the view!! Amazing.
amazing views and property manager/owner is only a phone call away if encounter anything...
We had a wonderful stay at Bob’s Condo. It provided everything we needed and more! The views from the patio left us amazed, our little piece of paradise if only for a week. Anyone choosing this Condo for their vacation will not be disappointed. 😊🏖🏄🏽
This was perfect for us. Just two adults, low key. Loved the whole place. You can’t beat walking out on your porch and staring straight at the ocean, just feet from you. We can’t wait to come back.
This property has a fantastic ocean front, walk out location. The kitchen is large and perfect for making meals and the BBQ area is steps away in the common area by the pool. Easy parking in the complex, and large king size comfortable bed, as well as a spacious bathroom with walk in shower. The communication with the owner was fantastic and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. There are a couple cons, the unit is a bit dated and in need of some updates, and the cleaning company should be doing better at cleaning, a lot of details are missed in the cleaning, and there is noise from the unit upstairs. But overall these are minor things, don't let it stop you from choosing this great location. We'll be back!
We have stayed at many Papakea units in the past and love the location of this one, especially with grandchildren who were also on property. The grass area provides a safe place for them to run and have a great time. We were disappointed in the lack of cleaning supplies for cleaning counters and stove top. There is a dishwasher but there was no starter dishwasher soap. There is a ripped screen on slider to lanai and the drapes do not close all the way. This is important on a ground level unit for security purposes, especially when the unit faces the ocean and not another building. The air conditioner is extremely noisy both indoors (which makes a good night sleep difficult) and on the lanai. These are minor things that can be corrected.
Mr. Kirby has a lovely first floor condo in the resort which offers an impressive west facing view of the Pacific. That means incredible sunsets and gorgeous blue waters. The unit was MORE than I needed to feel comfortable, with beach towels, chairs and other amenities available, and also very clean and organized. I spent more time than I thought I would lounging with the view!
Communication was perfect, as Mr. Kirby was available via phone and through the app, and he even was so kind to send a welcome letter with information and instruction before I arrived. Check-in was seamless. Only a short Uber/Lyft ride to Lahaina to get to the more touristy things, but I opted to take the half to three quarter mile walk to less crowded beaches, or meet friends at some of the neighboring resorts.
I highly recommend Mr. Kirby's place. I hope to come back soon!
Our stay in Maui was a dream! It was so relaxing. We made ourselves right at home and especially loved the back patio where we could watch the sunrise and sunset. I read an entire book out there! The property is close to everything and is in walking distance to necessities. I highly recommend!
We rented this unit for our wedding and honeymoon stay, it was perfect. Just steps away from the water and the perfect place to sit and watch the sunset. The condo was comfortable and had everything to make our stay enjoyable.
My husband and I stayed here due the hotel where my conference was being held being fully booked. This was a fortunate turn of events as this condo was perfect! It looks out to the ocean and we saw whales from the patio. The bed was comfortable and the living space nice to be able to spread out more than a traditional hotel. The pools are beautiful and clean. The property manager was helpful with any questions we had. I would highly recommend this condo!
We extended our stay on Maui a few days and were so lucky to find this place. The condo was very well-stocked, clean and comfortable. Wish we could have stayed longer. The oceanfront view was great and easy access to two great pools/hot tubs. We enjoyed checking out the shuffleboard and putting green. Bob was an exemplary host and very accommodating. Highly recommend!
Stop scrolling other properties... Serious. Place was amazing. A LITERAL 30 feet from the ocean out the back sliding glass door. The views and sounds of the ocean were nothing short of spectacular in full display 24/7. Amazing well kept property with pools, hot tub's, mini golf and shuffleboard all within walking distance to food trucks, grocery stores and fish/farmers market. The owner, Bob, was awesome with communication and making sure our stay was excellent. The neighbors and other people staying on the property were all friendly and welcoming. We had a blast and would absolutely would go back. Have already directly recommended this unit to other members of my family! 10/10!
The property had everything we needed except there was no hand soap in the kitchen or bathroom. The ceiling fan in the living room needed a battery for the remote. The condo was great for our needs. We would come back again for a longer time period in the future.
This is a wonderful place to stay. We really enjoyed being able to sit outside every morning and watch the waves and then again every evening and watch the sunset.
Loved the condo and especially the location on the water AND on the ground floor.
Well the property is nice the condo was ok the bathroom needs work done there was black mold water was leaking need to change the pillows not just put dirty covers on it also it was so hard to get a hold of someone that can help
Beautiful oceanfront views in a centralized location. We went the week before Thanksgiving and it wasn't too crowded. Perfect for extended stays.
The place was great except for a few things. I didn't like the floor. Missing a pitcher to make cool aid. We loved the spot.
The view and sounds of the waves crashing from the patio of our condo were mesmerizing. And the location was great with Kaanapali Beach just down the road and Kapalua just up the road. The only minor issues for us were too much light coming into the bedroom all night and lack of a/c in the bedroom but those are more than made up for by the view and comforting sounds of breaking waves.
This property is well staffed and managed. Location to Lahina old town is a huge plus. Don't bother looking for other stays, this is perfect. Your room literally is 20 paces to water across a greenbelt.
Condo was perfect for two, stunning view of ocean and Molokai, property grounds were beautiful and well maintained. Enjoyed our stay very much.
We loved it!!!
What an incredible spot to wake up to every morning.!
We so much enjoyed our stay. One of the highlights was feeling like we were sleeping next to the ocean each night. The availability of boogie boards and sand chairs was a nice surprise. The location of the condo is between the two swimming pools on the Papakea property; and the location of the property is between the areas ok Kapalua and Lahaina, which was also ideal.
WOW! What a beautiful location, everything about this place is spectacular! The Sunsets are truly amazing!! The grounds are beautiful and well groomed! The condo had everything you could possibly need!! Thank You Robert for everything you are truly a wonderful host!!

I found this property on line and couldn’t have been more pleased. The accommodation, the location, the views and the amenities were all fantastic & perfect. Outside of the very congested Lahaina strip, but within a short drive of all of Maui’s wonderful western half attractions. I will definitely return to this magnificent spot and request to stay at the same place…it was an amazing way to finish our three island trip to Hawaii. Highest recommendation.
The ground floor beachfront location provided picturesque mornings and stunning sunset views in the evening. The place was very cozy, with all of the amenities of home. The resort is very nice and easy to get around. We loved this place so much - we will be back!
So much better than we expected. Robert was responsive and easy to work with.
The location of the ocean front unit was perfect. The resort is ideal for a Hawaii getaway. Walking distance to restaurants and grocery stores. Two beautiful pools right in the ocean.
We left the air conditioner off and opened the windows at night loved hearing the sound of the waves while we slept.
Perfect, perfect, perfect.
The location of this condo is great and the views from the lanai are stunning. Robert was great, he was very informative and helpful. We had a late flight and he was able to work with us so we had a place to stay until our flight.
We come to Maui every year and always stay in the Honokowai area. This was our first stay in this condo but it definitely won’t be our last. Wonderful place and host, absolutely perfect!
Wonderful condo with a picture perfect view.
We spent a full week in this unit and loved everything about it, and the property in general. The unit is well furnished and had everything we needed. Being on the ground floor so close to the waters edge was fabulous! We liked how there was a grocery store, several restaurants, and food trucks all within a short walking distance. We would absolutely stay here again on our next trip to Maui!
This place is beyond expectations. In fact it should be more than 5 stars. Bob was incredibly responsive and incredibly helpful before getting to the place and driving up the coast and this being our first visit to Maui, we really didn't know what to expect. We usually visit Oahu or Kauai to visit friends, family, etc. although this was a true getaway. It was roughly a 10 minute drive north of Lahaina town, so if you're looking for a place in the middle of that action, it's a bit north however close enough. As far as the resort, there were pools, a putting green, helpful staff and great landscaping throughout. The property itself is the bottom floor and looks directly at the ocean and Lanai. Truly an incredible view. It's close to some of our now favorite beaches and it's a nice getaway from the busy tourist traffic. We definitely will come back and CANNOT thank Bob enough for being so incredibly helpful and a huge blessing. This place rules.
