We had a wonderful stay. Enjoyed the property and amenities. The property was well kept and quiet…we especially enjoyed sitting on the lanai and watching the ocean and whales. The location is close to activities and food. Would highly recommend staying at this property!
Exactly as described and pictured. Huge bonus was watching the whales from the lanai. The first morning a water pipe burst impacting the entire resort but communications were great and water was restored by afternoon. We would love to stay here again! Food truck park a short walk away was great. We were in the ocean several times on the sand beach just a short walk away. Whole family loved it. Great beds and quiet for sleeping.
This listing was just as expected! Location was perfect. Walking distance and view of the beaches that are easily accessible. We were able to swim every night! Views of amazing sunsets and whales galore in the stunning ocean view from the Lanai. The condo was very clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. The condo was stocked well too. The only issue we had was the surprise daily service fee from the management company. We ended up with around an extra $150 that had to be paid separately upon check-in, that we weren’t expecting or aware of. However, it still wouldn’t deter us from renting here again. We will definitely be back and stay at this location if we’re able!
Fabulous location for our family. Just the right amount if space. Condo had everything we needed. And waking up to the sunrise every morning couldn’t be beat. We would stay here again.
Terrific property, will all of the amenities needed for a memorable holiday. The location is perfect, to watch the sunset and the world go. The management team was responsive and prompt in fixing an issue that we encountered.
Beautiful property! No assistance whatsoever with problems regarding a/c unit. Very cold upon arrival and then it didn't work the rest of the trip. Called/texted for assistance and I felt like we didn't matter. We opened the slider and all windows for breezes. Screen door broken and pieces were falling off. Other things were broken upon arrival not fixed before we got there, hopefully the next guests were taken care of due to our noting of these problems. Lovely trip and a beyond gorgeous view! Would have liked to have had someone care though. I wouldn't book again, sorry to say.
We found the condo to be a good base for exploring west Maui and beyond. Also, we had a great view of the ocean, islands and sunset from our lanai. Clean place, spacious enough for four. We appreciated the beach gear (boogie boards, snorkel gear, etc) in the closet - a pleasant surprise!
Condo was as described and very well stocked. The umbrella was broken and there were a couple minor other things but none of that impacted our stay in a negative way at all. Perfect for a family of 4. Absolutely loved the sunset views and waking up to a view of Molokai and swaying palm trees every day. You can go to the beach right next door but it is narrow so we opted to drive down to Ka’annapalli area for the beach. Lots of great snorkel areas and we saw turtles right outside the condo a couple times. Overall 5 stars!
This condo was perfect for our family of 4. We saw whales from the lanai everyday! The sunsets were spectacular…very lovely accommodations. We would definitely come back for another visit!
Property is directly ocean front, great view of islands of Lanai and Molokai. Nice remodeled unit, fine upgrades, well stocked. Comfortable beds, walkin showers. Unit is small for 4 adults, no dining table, four bar stools surround the kitchen island. TV in the bedrooms do not have cable and we could not get them to work after 2 requests.
Such a nice condo, had everything we needed and fantastic views of the ocean. We would stay here again!
The ocean front setting and the nicely redecorated condo were the perfect combo form our recent Maui trip. Thank you.
You should have seen our faces when we walked in. Exactly as pictured in the listing with a killer ocean view! This is one of the nicest places we've ever stayed and definitely the best ocean view. Great location with lots of shops and restaurants and short drive to downtown Lahaina.
Comfy beds, clean, modern and good communication with the managers. Also loved the heated pools which our other Maui place did not. The A/C was a little wierd, but we got used to it after a few days. I guess they don't want to rely on visitors to remember to shut it off when they leave the unit. So it has a 6 hour timer. It was December so it wasn't super hot and was no big deal when it shut off. One of the bedrooms got really cold for some reason and we couldn't figure out how to adjust that. I'm sure you could just call the management and they'd help you if it was a big deal to you. Wasn't really for us.
Loved watching sunsets and eating on the deck. It was spectacular. I cannot wait to stay here again!! You won't want to leave. Highly recommend.
View from balcony was priceless. Unit is beautiful. Appreciated the nice beach chairs, umbrella and cooler. Traveling by air it really makes beach days more enjoyable knowing those items are provided.
Wonderful experience in every way. The condo was recently upgraded and is scrupulously maintained. It is thoughtfully furnished with all of the kitchen and beach gear one might want, and the views and sound of the ocean are just incredible. We are so glad we stayed here and can’t wait to come back.
We rented a total of 3 condos and this one was the most updated and well equipped of them all. The views are fantastic as well. Great location that’s walking distance to stores, restaurants and beach.
This was the nicest VRBO we’ve ever stayed at. I almost didn’t want to write this and keep it a secret, We will definitely come back. Great location, amenities, comfortable. Thanks to our hosts!
Our family (two parents two teenage boys) had a wonderful stay in this condo. I spent hours in the lanai watching sunsets and the sea turtles who came very close to shore. Very comfortable beds. Kitchen has high quality pans and knives etc. Check in was super efficient. Pool was very warm and clean. We loved that there was shuffleboard and a putting green. Easy walk to the beach and to food trucks. Short drive to amazing snorkeling and boogie boarding (it was august so we had to hunt for waves). The one thing I’ll say is that from the master bedroom you can hear the people in the condo above and next door - but the noise was easily overcome by some white noise (and I should add that my husband and I are extremely light sleepers)
Property was as expected. Very well equipped with all the water sport activity needs. TV remotes and streaming was very poor. None of the instructions worked or were accurate. Eventually sorted it out but a little frustrating at first.
Beautiful stay! We’ve stayed at this property before in another unit. But this one was ocean front and nicely updated didn’t need anything. They provided start up items for our stay I thought I would need to buy more so I did but there was plenty for our entire stay. Would love to stay in this unit again. Waking up and seeing the ocean right off your lani was an added bonus! I really enjoy the laid back atmosphere of this resort we have stayed in a few different place before but have come back to the papakia the last few visits.
This property was terrific! The view of the ocean and sunset is Amazing! Everything we really needed was provided. Plenty of kitchen items to make meals. Loved having the washer/dryer! Comfy beds, did I mention the views from the lanai?;) The sunset and the stars!! Fantastic stay. Would stay here again!
Missing this property already - book this today!
The location is great - easy to get to Lahaina/Kapalua etc. And great to be right next to an ABC Store and Maui Fish Market (highly recommended) is just down the street.
Papakea is an older resort but the unit has been remodeled and is in great shape. You cannot beat the view - Ocean front!!!
I would definitely recommend this condo with a couple of suggestions to make it go from good to great:
1) There is an odd timer on the air conditioner. You cannot run it for more than 5 or 6 hours at a time. This means when it's hot, you may need to get up in the middle of the night and reset the timer. I have stayed in several places in Hawaii and have never seen a timer like this - it needs to go.
2) The TVs in the bedrooms have DVD players as their streaming players. Needless to say, they are hopelessly out of date with many streaming services not available. Not a big deal - who comes to Hawaii to watch TV. But there should be a Roku or the like e.g. something modern

Great location, great stay! Would definitely stay again!
We loved out stay here. The view is wonderful. Beautiful sunsets every night. Condo was very well stocked. Perfect for two couples (except for the twin beds) or a small family. Pools were nice.
It was wonderful!!
