This was my second time staying in Dee’s oceanfront unit and it truly is a piece of paradise . The unit has just about everything one would need . The kitchen has every cupboard and drawer labeled for easy access . Watched sunsets every night from the lanai and bbq whole mug long with others . I will return to this unit in the future as it’s my favorite . There
Are lots of restaurants in whalers village and Napili and Kapalua are two of Mauis most beautiful beaches . thank you Dee. MAUI STAY STEONG ❤️❤️❤️❤️

We recommend this beautiful condo that is just amazing! Ms. Dee could not be a kinder and better host.
It was breathtaking!
Thank you, Ms Dee
Our second stay in this condo. We don’t want to stay anywhere else! Perfect location, great communication, everything couldn’t be better! We loved everything 💜💜💜 We will be back!
Very nice complex for family gatherings. Great pools and activities. Well maintained. No issues

Dee is so lovely to speak to. Anything that we needed was provided and nothing seemed to be a problem. Lovely people came to clean when we asked and their rate was reasonable. Great access to ocean walkway that takes you to Whalers Village .
It was excellent for everything. From cleanliness, to check in, but the views were amazing. Can’t say enough about this property.
You cannot beat the view from this condo! We ate every meal on the lanai; 180 degree direct oceanfront view and great airflow to keep the condo cool. AC units worked great too when needed. The unit is better than pictured; extremely clean and well maintained. Dee has thought of everything you might need on a vacation and was great to work with. We had a great trip and look forward to returning.
One of the best experiences of our life… the condo was perfect, views, property, location, and had everything we needed to be enjoy ourselves!! Definitely recommend this place to anyone.
This condo was so lovely. They had everything we needed or may have forgotten. The view on the Lanai was magnificent. We sat out there every night and listened to the ocean. The resort was well kept up. Nice pool and hot tub. We enjoyed our stay here very much and would highly recommend it.
Great views just steps away from ocean, clean unit, great condition, safe area, and great location.
We loved our stay here. The location of this unit is perfect. The veiw is beautiful! The unit is updated, clean, and stocked with beach amenities. It is close to multiple beaches and popular restaurants. We would definitely come back again!
My wife and I celebrated our 15th anniversary with a trip to Maui and stayed at this beautiful condo. As amazing as the pictures look, it is somehow even more beautiful in person. We had everything we could have wanted or needed including beach chairs, and snorkeling equipment. Everything inside the condo is immaculate but the best part is sitting on the oceanfront deck in the morning or evening for sunset. The owners were also extremely helpful every step of the way including checking in part way through to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. Thank you for making this a cherished experience.
This is a perfect place to stay if it is just the two of you. It is exactly as it shows in the photos and video. Very convenient to food options (especially food trucks), the ocean, and easy to drive to pretty much anywhere on the island. We would definitely stay here again if we visit Maui in the near future.
We had an amazing time in Maui. The resort was so clean and everyone was so friendly. So relaxing and can’t wait to come back soon.
Highly recommend this unit as it’s one of the nicest at Papakea ! Watching sunset from the lanai every evening was amazing ! The unit is updated and equipped with everything you could ever need. I Will definitely be renting this one again . Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home with other people! Aloha
We loved everything about this beautiful condo! Everything was just as described. As someone said previously " we wanted for nothing ".
Dee and Randy were great to work with and were very responsive when we had a question. The property grounds were beautiful and the staff friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again! Thank you for being such a wonderful host couple!!!!
Beautifully decorated and stocked! I loved all the labels in the kitchen! Very helpful! One very small suggestion would be shades that block the sun as it is setting. Quite warm and bright with current shades.
We stayed for 9 nights and we literally cannot think of anything we wish the condo had that it didn’t. Amazing! So many details that made the stay perfect! We fully appreciated everything from the washer/dryer and dishwasher and Blender, to the Lanai! Not to mention the beach chairs, Putt putt equipment and more! The location couldn’t be more perfect and we just kept saying this is the exact condo we will book next time! Every night was a beautiful sunset and we can’t wait to return!
The perfect location for us, close to supermarkets & restaurants. etc.
Everything about this place was amazing. Would highly recommend!
Everything about this condo was incredible. From the moment you walk in through the front door, the glance at the beautifully presented bedroom, and in the living room you are greeted with the most incredible view of the ocean. The condo was perfectly decorated, with all the little details thought of for making your stay comfortable. Of our first time visit to Maui during a 6 night stay at 3 different VRBOs, this was our favorite overall. Would absolutely book this unit again in the future.
Amazing place. Every day we woke up we felt like we were on a cruise as the view of the ocean is stunning. Immaculate. Beyond comfortable. Owner is very thoughtful on making it home away from home. Definitely would rent agin from owner hands down. Very response super thoughtful on what is needed even down to ice packs in the freezer for a picnic lunch! Stop scrolling and pick this place. Clean. Safe. Family friendly and oh yeah…the beach is literally steps away.
We had planned to go in 2020 for our 40th anniversary but with the world changes we had to wait. It was so worth the wait. The condo looked just like the pictures With No disappointments. The view was amazing with coffee on the Lanie in the mornings and watching the sunset in the evenings. We had one small emergency and it only took a few minutes to be resolved with the owners, so it wasn't really an emergency after all. We are already talking about going back and hoping their place will be available.
Thank you Randy and Dee
Michael & Delisa
The condo is the perfect location for all that Maui has to offer. Easy check-in process and all the beach and activity accessories available
We absolutely loved our stay. The condo was clean and well appointed. The pool/hot tub area is very nice as well as the area to lay at the shore. Location was great for us too.
So close to the ocean! Peaceful and beautiful. We enjoyed 2 wonderful weeks at this property and it was everything we hoped. We saw seals and sea turtles up close and even whale spouts and big splashes off in the distance right from the balcony. Close to stores, restaurants, farmers' markets, and downtown Lahaina. The condo is beautiful, clean and comfortable with everything you need. We hope to return soon. Thanks for sharing this little piece of paradise!
This condo is full of Aloha!
The hosts were wonderful in their communication throughout, both on VRBO as well as with the information located in the condo.
The amenities at this perfect condo were spot-on from kitchen setup to supplies like laundry soap to binoculars and decor. We were delightfully surprised to see a few whales and spinner dolphins from the lanai one evening. During low tide we were able to get in the ocean just beyond the sea wall. For the best snorkeling, we drove to Kapalua Bay. More beach for swimming and snorkeling are accessible within a 1-mile walk. For example, we were able to walk to Ka’anapali beach.
Cooking at the condo is a dream. You can see and hear the ocean while chopping pineapple. The condo has great proximity to both the Maui Fish Market and grocery, is well organized and had all the needed equipment. To top it off, dining on lanai with the ocean just feet away was incredible!
We also liked Papakea resort itself and its location. It is well maintained, quiet, has nice grills and pool area, as well as ability to walk in all directions for miles. Important to burn off calories from great cooking and shave ice. We took advantage of the free yoga and use of the BBQ grills at the pool. Of the areas on Maui, this location now tops our list.
We will be back to enjoy more of this welcoming and fantastic environment.
This apartment has everything that you can dream of when renting near the beach! The kitchen is totally furnished with all what you need to cook a gourmet dinner. Beach chairs, towels, binoculars and much more are provided for full enjoyment. The view from the terrace was breathtaking. We could not stop being on the terrace looking at all kind of sea animals and the beautiful mountains (with rainbows!). Great vacation spot!! We did not use the resort as we like to snorkel a lot but many families enjoyed the different activities provided at the resort. The people at the front desk were super helpful and friendly. I would recommend Dee and Randy’s apartment to friends and family!
Check in was easy and the home was exactly as listed! The property is well appointed and has everything you need for beach activities throughout your trip. The in unit washer dryer was super handy and helped limit what we packed. It was a great touch along with other thoughtful gestures ( timer on the AC, coffee, pancake mix, beach chairs, snorkel gear, etc) the view from the balcony can't be beat. Beautiful beach views during the day and an amazing view of the stars at night. I would definitely book again! Thanks Dee!
This listing is exactly as promised. This condo has been updated and is looking right out at the ocean! Everything you need is nearby and the property itself is nicely kept with lots of activities. We had an absolutely perfect vacation watching the whales from our balcony and relaxing in this cozy condo. Highly recommend!
What a magnificent place. Tastefully decorated with the most outstanding view. One of the best places we ever stayed. Everything you need for the beach is included. Highly recommend.
What a beautiful condo in a great location. The property had everything we needed. The bed was comfortable the view was amazing. So many whales. My husband and I spent many hours watching the whales from our balcony. We will definitely be back.
Dee & Randy were wonderful to work with in renting their beautiful home! Everything is a pictured and as described. The views from the lanai were spectacular! The staff were great and the grounds immaculate. They supply everything one might need for cooking. Also, comfy bed with great linens and towels.
We hope to be back soon!
This was a magical vacation! This property was unbelievable! First time to Maui and this property is what made our vacation so beautiful! It was everything and more! We will come again if we can to this very property if we ever get the chance!
My husband and I were so lucky and thankful to be able to celebrate our honeymoon in Dee + Randy’s BEAUTIFUL condo. We spent each day exploring the island. The location of this condo is PERFECT. We truly explored every side of the island and our location in Lahaina was perfect for that! Front Street and Whalers village were our go to breakfast and dinner spots! You can’t go wrong anywhere. When we were at the condo, we felt like we were in paradise. We saw dolphins, sea turtles, and even seals RIGHT outside the condo! This condo is absolutely beautiful and was truly equipped with everything we needed! We can’t wait to celebrate an anniversary here! Thank you Dee and Randy!
Beautiful updated condo - clean, attractive, comfortable, well stocked. Balcony views as advertised - wonderful sunsets. Gracious hosts. Can't think of anything I'd change. Thank you for a perfect stay!
Overall an excellent property. First the view! It was incredible and we loved taking in sunsets from the lanai. The rest of the unit was also great. Everything was clean and as described. There was even a small welcome gift of chocolates on the counter. All the appliances worked well and the A/C units kept the place very comfortable. I can't speak much on thre amenities as we did not use the pool or tennis courts. They looked nice and were never overly busy. The outside property was well maintained and lounge chairs were always available along the seawall. If I had any complaint it would be a lack of beach but honestly this wasn't a problem. The area in front of the unit only has a small amount of beach when the tide is out and it nearly disappears when the tide comes in. We did use it one day but mostly chose to go a short walk (10 minutes) south to Kaanapali Beach. We did see some ocean life right in front of the unit including a sea turtle. The upside of the lack of beach means less people and noise in front of the lanai. The unit felt private and relaxed. Lastly there are a few benefits that might not have been mentioned that could help your decision. There is parking right at the back of the unit so no long trip with beach gear or luggage. Additionally there is an elevator if needed.
Overall this unit was excellent and I would definitely recommend it to anyone considering a trip to Maui.
Room was perfect, great location and everything wee kept. Would definitely stay here again.
Great kitchen area, comfortable bedroom and living room, awesome view. I enjoyed jumping out and snorkeling for a little bit many mornings, with the provided equipment. The balance of comfort/amenities with cost was a great selling point.
This property is amazing! The host could not have been more accommodating, had a little snafu at check in but it was handled with a phone call, Great customer service!! You can tell that this property is well taken care of and decorated beautifully. The Papakea Resort is in a great location for snorkeling and beach going, loved swimming with the turtles that visited us daily! We can not wait to go back!
This condo is amazing - where do I start? They've thought of everything - from beach towels to wine glasses. The ocean front view is fabulous, but it is also decorated so perfectly and the bed is very comfy! It was quiet and lovely -- and we hope to come back to stay again ASAP!
We have stayed at Papakea many times and this condo is one of our favorites. When you walk in the condo and see the oceanfront view, it just draws you right in. Then you look around the condo, you see the owners took a lot of time, making the space very special in every detail. It makes you feel right at home. They thought of everything you might need. It was very clean. We loved the decor in the bedroom and the bed was so comfortable! Can’t wait to go back. Thank you for sharing this beautiful condo!
We had been to Maui 2 times before but the fact that we stayed here at this condo made this 3rd visit the best ever! The condo is amazing! All of the interior is so beautiful and tastefully done. The view is to die for!! We were so confortable and able to enjoy our time to the fullest! The condo is stocked with everything that you will ever need . The grounds at Papakea are so beautiful and well kept. The grills outside are so clean and conveniernt. Papakea is a place where you can also feel very secure. Security staff are standing by to make sure of that. You may never recognize them, but they are there. You really never would even have to leave Papakea if you didnt want to, except to get your groceries, but if you do leave, you will not have to go very far to get to some wonderful restaurants and beaches and sites that Maui has to offer. With Front street not very far away at all, you will have a vast choice of wonderful restaurants and shops. Whalers village is just a few blocks down and will offer great shopping and food. When you have stayed at the best condo ever, you will never want to stay at any other. This condo is magnificent! The owners are wonderful people to communicate with. This condo was the best choice we ever made for our most recent trip (8/31 thru 9/9/19) and we can't wait until our next visit. Thank you so very much, Dee and Randy! It has been a great pleasure!
I can't wait to come back! The condo was well stocked, beautifully decorated, and the view was absolutely outstanding. We spent one night away at a fancy Hyatt resort (the Andaz) and we really missed our view and the extra space while we were gone. Don't hesitate - book this place immediately if it's available to you. You will not regret it!
Very nicely appointed features in this condo. The kitchen was well equipped and nicely organized. Furnishings were beautiful and in good taste. Loved the little extra functional touches such as decorative wall hooks for towels in the bathroom, clothes in the bedroom and items like sun hats in the entry. The washer and dryer functioned remarkably well.
Can’t say enough good things about this place. The condo is perfect, awesome location, very well maintained and stocked with anything and everything you might need. The owners, Dee and Randy are amazing communicators and have the place set up so you can have a fun and relaxing vacation. The views from the deck are awesome. We enjoyed our stay immensely and look forward to returning soon, hopefully we can find a date that the condo isn’t rented :-)
We absolutely loved our stay at this condo! It was perfect in every way. From the AMAZING decor, oceanfront location and much needed a/c during our summer stay.
Dee and Randy were very lovely to deal with and always stayed in contact with us. They even gave a gift of a bottle of wine which was a nice surprise!
They provided a great book of activities to do and rated some beaches around which we used quite a bit. This was my first time in Maui so a travel guide was definitely appreciated.
The condo came fully stocked with everything you could have asked for in the kitchen and as well as for outdoor activities such as snorkeling and just beach lounging. Very high-quality Tommy Bahama backpack beach chairs were so nice to have!
I can't recommend this condo enough. And I really can't imagine there being a nicer condo in Papakea!
Everything was as described! Beautiful condo in a beautiful complex!
This condo was a very nice tastefully decorated place to stay. My wife and I both enjoyed all the comforts that were provided to us and the living space felt very roomy. The views are really beautiful and everyone gathers on the grass and Lanai's to watch the sunset. The water in front of it is fun to take a dip and cool off with a small beach during lower tides. It was reat to watch the turtles swim by all day. The location is great, there are food carts, restaurants, and a grocery store right off the driveway in to walk to. The grounds are also great to walk through with lots of wildlife and pretty flowers. It definitely is a more resort sort of feel, so if you are looking to get away from people, this won't be that type of place as its a large complex. The shower and bathroom is a bit on the smaller side, so if you are really tall (I'm 6') it would be a bit tight. But we never really had any issues with it, most hotel bathrooms are the same size and with 2 people it was just fine.
Recommendations: There was 2 main things my Wife and I both agreed would have made it better. We really needed a box fan to help move the AC air from the living room to the back bedroom as it never really got to there and we had to run it way too much so it was cold in the living space and warm in the bedroom/bath. There really needed to be some privacy shades installed in the living space, when the sun hits it in the evenings, it would reflect off the water and into the house and the installed shades didn't cut it. We had to wear sunglasses in the house just to watch TV or be in there because it was so bright.
Neither of those things should be considered deal killers for this place, it was amazing and fun to stay there. We really enjoyed it and are thankful for what it offered. Its so much better then a hotel, I was not disappointed at all! Thank you!
What a fantastic home! The view was unbelievable, the home was very clean and very comfortably equipped. The location is very conveniently located close to the beach board walk and also numerous beaches and attractions. The home has obviously been recently redecorated and looks fantastic! The A/C is a welcome addition as well. Great spot!!
Look no further. This is a beautiful oceanfront condo comepletely equipped with anything and everything you may need for your stay near Lahaina. Just north of Kaapalani Beach in Papakea, a beautiful well kept resort. The condo is beautifully decorated with new furnishings and has a full kitchen for saving money on meals. Watch the sunset every night from the balcony. Can't go wrong. Book it!
