Recently purchased and completely renovated true oceanfront 3 bedroom (2 bedroom plus loft) 3 bathroom penthouse in Papakea unit F405. The view is phenomenal!!! There is absolutely nothing in between you and the ocean which is 50 feet away. Whale watching from the living room, the lanai…even the master shower. Absolutely gorgeous renovation and EVERYTHING is new including the A/C. Not your average property, this bright and airy home with high vaulted ceilings is beautifully furnished with a casual beachy flair. The new 4 panel sliding door really opens up the indoor space to the lanai which is perfectly furnished for relaxing or socializing. Papakea has 3 “TRUE” oceanfront buildings and only a handful of 3 bedroom 3 bathroom suites and of these F405 is the most recently renovated.
Thoughtfully designed with an abundance of seating inside and out and a beautiful driftwood table that seats 10. Enjoy an afternoon of reading and relaxing on the lanai day bed listening to the lull of the ocean waves. Sit back and enjoy the gorgeous sunsets on the super comfy lounge chairs or enjoy your morning latte on the outdoor table for two. Large sectional for cozy evenings with the family watching movies on the big flat screen TV.
Need to get away? Enjoy the gorgeous master suite with luxurious king size upholstered bed, vaulted ceilings and cozy swivel chair to enjoy the stunning views. Fall asleep to the sound of the waves in the master bedroom and open up the beautiful new windows which allow an extra spacious opening to appreciate this amazing location.
All bedrooms have some views. The second bedroom on the main floor has peek a boo ocean & mountain views and a queen bed with built-in single bed on top of the owner’s lock off closet. The 3rd bedroom is a spacious loft area that is open to the living space but also has a sliding woven shade for additional separation and privacy. This bedroom has some ocean views and a queen bed along with a twin bed. We also have a queen size sofa bed in the living room. Our suite can sleep 10 but we feel 8 is a more ideal number, so it doesn’t seem too crowded. The stairs to the loft bedroom are narrower and slightly steeper than normal stairs, so not the best for somebody older.
We like quality, so we have not scrimped on beds, linens, towels, dishes etc. Beautiful upholstered beds, Saatva luxury mattresses. Our sheets are fresh white 100% Egyptian cotton. We have an abundance of dishes, wine glasses, serving pieces etc. No need to go out for latte’s, with our Breville machine. Make smoothies with the Vitamix blender and fresh juice with the Champion Juicer.
If you read through some of the reviews you will see that I am very hands on and always available to answer any of your queries, and unexpected issues that can sometimes arise. I prepare an extensive information manual to answer all your questions and I have things very well organized and labelled for your convenience. Our Maui home is kept impeccably clean.
We are perfectly situated in the complex to maximize the cooling trade winds and 4 nice big ceiling fans keep it naturally comfortably cool. But for those who want it really cool we have installed a brand new 4 zone A/C unit which cools all 3 bedroom and the living room separately.
We love our Papakea location just a short walk to so many amenities. The famed Kaanapali Beach is less than a 10 min walk away and this beautiful beach stretches over 2 miles to Black Rock point at the Sheraton and then beyond to Whaler’s Village and the Kaanaplia Resorts. For the runners and walkers in your group there is an approximately 7-mile return run along the boardwalk or along the ocean’s edge. Along the boardwalk there are a number of ocean front resort restaurants and bars to enjoy breakfast, lunch, happy hour or dinner. Dukes restaurant is a perfect spot for a sunset dinner and is a short ocean front walk away. There are a handful of yoga and fitness classes along the oceanfront that you can sign up for. Across the street are a variety of stores including a grocery store, fish market, coffee shop, Paradiso Pizza, & walk-in medical clinic etc. The quaint town of Lahaina is just a short 10 min drive away or a 30-40 min bike ride.
The straight goods on the beach: there is only a small amount of beach left in front of Papakea and this varies depending upon the time of year, swell and tides. Many years ago Papakea had an expansive beach which was washed away in a storm. Now if the tide is not too high, there is a small amount of beach on the north or south end of the development. There are stairs leading down to the beach, but the beach is NOT large enough for lounge chairs. You can access the water there and if the waves are not too big you can see people swimming, snorkeling, boogie boarding and paddleboarding out in front. The water is not that deep as there is a reef out in front. Some days you can see kite surfers, wind surfers and surfers right in front! There is a multitude of places to take surf lesson or rent surboards all within a 10 minute drive of Papakea. The resort immediately south of us does have a beach which you can walk to in 2 minutes. That beach is wide enough that people do relax on towels & chairs. But our favorite closest beach is Kaanapali Beach which you can walk to in 10 mins. At the north end the waves tend to be a little bigger, and if you’re looking for calmer water or shade just head south. We really love the cove beaches at Napili Beach & Kapalua Bay and they are a 10 min drive north. There are lots of lounge chairs at Papakea and its lovely just to relax on the grass overlooking the ocean and then pop into the water if you want to cool down!
