**Safety and cleanliness procedures implemented may be adjusted in consideration of local practices, government requirements and guidance, and the situation where the condo is located.

BEACHES & CRITTERS: The beach size in Hawaii varies month to month due to heavy surf, strong currents and tides. Due to Maui’s rural atmosphere you may experience the occasional rooster, as well as harmless geckos. Geckos are friendly, eat insects, and are considered good luck in Hawaii. Please don’t kill them.

IMPORTANT: Although the HOA schedules regular professional pest control services, pests such as ants, roaches and rodents simply cannot be completely controlled in the tropics. Hawaii is located in a tropical climate, and insects, rodents and lizards flourish in this environment. If our guest spot more than the normal expected pests, we always make our best efforts to contact and work with the HOA to minimize your interactions with these pests. Any contact with such pests within or outside the unit does not constitute a breach of this Agreement or give Guest any right to any refund or rental adjustment.

We stayed at the Papakea resort for a week in June 2023. The condo was perfect for my husband and I and our two boys, age (almost 18) and 21. My youngest used the snorkle gear, had his own fins, and swam out past the reef almost every day. We were 20 minutes from our beloved Lahaina, and I believe this resort is still standing as I think it was beyond the fire. (My heart is breaking for Maui and the victims of the Lahaina fire.) If you are looking for a nice place to stay on vacation, this is still it. The only tourist thing we did this time was the bike ride with the Maui Bike Company, which was great. (Do that on your first night so that waking up at 130 AM to get there by 3 AM is not a problem. Don't know if the roads are open now or not.) Would love to return in a year or two. Thank you!

We had an amazing week in this unit. The view could not be better, the unit was clean and very comfortable for the 4 of us. The proximity to the beach and the pool was great! Nothing but great memories from our week staying in this location.

We had an amazing trip to Maui. It was our first time ever visiting Hawaii and what a great trip we had. Staying here was one of the best decisions we made. We seriously went back-and-forth between this unit and staying at one of the large resorts close by. After visiting one of the resorts, it was clear, we made the right decision. Everything is so clean, beautiful, quiet, and relaxing. The grounds are meticulously cared for. The unit was beautiful and well-appointed. The beds were comfy. The view was fabulous. Every meal we ate in the unit, we ate on the porch overlooking the ocean. It just doesn’t get any better than that. The memories we made were priceless, and lots of those memories were made right here in this unit, at this property. Highly recommend using Deming’s delivery service. We had a late arrival after two very long flights so we had Demings go ahead and pre-shop for us based on a grocery list that we provided. Such care went into shopping for us. She even used coupons on many items for us. I sincerely appreciate her taking that extra step. It was wonderful experience that I would not hesitate to use again. Restaurant recommendations: Honu, Mala, Kimo’s, Fleetwoods, the Farmers Market Maui (take a left out of the property and it’s may be a mile down on your right), and the best cinnamon rolls ever are right outside the property to the left, on the left at Papi’s Ohana (get in line before they officially open). Thank you for a wonderful trip!

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.

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.

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)


Gwen D.

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

My Mom and I came to Maui for a family wedding and a much needed respite . We have visited the Big Island several times over the last decade or so, but it had been over 20 years since we'd been to Maui. Both of us were a little apprehensive because we remembered Maui as much more touristy and not as relaxing as Kona. Well, we sure were wrong!! Our stay at this beautifully appointed, well cared for, exceptionally clean condo was nothing short of perfect. Papakea was a little oasis. The resort was pristine and the unit surpassed our expectations, and we have stayed in NICE places before. We had everything we needed in the kitchen, everything worked perfectly, the place was spotless, furnishings and decor were thoughtfully chosen, comfortable and attractive. We SO appreciated the attention to detail. It's obvious that the owners take great pride in providing guests with an exceptional experience. My Mom and I are grateful and will undoubtedly choose this lovely condo again should we return to Maui. We will also recommend it to family & friends. Thank you, Larisa and Michael!

This 2 bed, 2 bath condo provided us with everything we could have imagined and more!! Owners have not overlooked any details. Spacious, comfortable, amazing views, and we looked forward to returning there each time. We will definitely look to stay in this condo again. Loved the unit, the grounds and the location!!!

Our first time to Maui and we feel so blessed to have come across Larisa's stunning condo on VRBO. It did not disappoint. We never imagined that having the opportunity of staying for 10 nights in this condo would surpass the description and photos online. Our communication with the owner's prior to our stay was excellent and when we walked through the door, the only word was "WOW". This condo is amazing. So clean, modern and well maintained. The furnishings and decor are beautiful. The attention to detail is faultless. The kitchen has everything you will ever need with such quality cookware. Best sleeps ever on comfy beds listening to the waves. A smaller/low rise complex with the most beautifully kept gardens. A nice quiet refurbished place away from the high rise hotels was what we were looking for and Larisa's certainly delivered. Many afternoons were spent sunning ourselves around the swimming pools, taking a hot spa, and we made great use of the clean bbq facilities with fresh fish from the fish market across the road. The highlight was margaritas each night on the lanai to watch the magnificent sunsets. We stocked up on groceries and drinks at the Times Supermarket also across the road and the Farmer's Market down the road, all within an easy walk. There are some great places to eat in or take out also in walking distance. We enjoyed a night out at Dukes which is within walking distance and then another night we went to Fleetwoods in Front Street, Lahaina after watching our cultural choice - Ulalena stage show. Our concierge offered great activity and tour suggestions of ways to make the most of our time. We had ideas prior to arrival but our land, sea and air choices were all amazing. Maui Magic offered us a smaller group snorkel experience to Molokini Crater and Turtle Town. Great snorkel, food and attention. Kapalua Bay & MM13 were great snorkelling spots. Intended driving road to Hana, so pleased we went in style with Valley Isle Excursions, took us not only to Hana but beyond. The highlight was with Big Island Air VIP Adventure. In 3 hours we saw Maui and then crossed the Aleanuihaha channel to Big Island's active volcano, stunning mountains, sea cliffs, waterfalls and hidden valleys. Thankyou so much Larisa, we'll be back!

Our reason for going to Maui was a Neices wedding. The wedding party was staying at Kaanapali Beach Resorts, finding this rental just down the road at Papakea Resort was most perfect. My oldest son, his wife and one year old son stayed with us. The two bedroom and two bath condo was perfect and very nicely outfitted. As you walked into the open kitchen and living space you were presented with an amazing view of the ocean. The place was just as described. The home of Larisa and Michael was wonderful and very clean and comfortable. It allowed us to kick back and enjoy our family and deal comfortably with the schedule of a one year old. The grounds of the resort were beautiful and maintained, it was relaxing to go to the pool and use the barbecues. We would definitely come back here. We scored a 10! Mahalo Richard and Sharron Conte.

I called it a home because it is definitely NOT a property. It's obvious that the owners Michael and Larisa spent a lot of time and put a lot of heart into their home. The layout and furnishings are great. The home is supplied with more amenities than you'll ever need or use. Great location. Stores, coffee, and food are within walking distance. The very best part of the home is the sunsets. We planned our whole day around being back at the home, making dinner, and watching the individually unique sunsets from the lanai. We can't wait to return Thank You Micheal and Larisa.

Words cannot describe the amazing view, and the accommodations were top of the line. My wife, daughter, and parents spent the week here and we had only one issue which turned out to just be a mix-up with housekeeping. Larisa was very prompt with her email responses and everything was as described in the posting. The view from the lanai was absolutely breathtaking. I could sit out there for days and just listen to the ocean! I would definitely recommend this property to anyone willing to listen. When (not if) you decide to stay here, there is a place called the Fish Market within walking distance of the property that has the best fish tacos I have ever had in my life. Make sure you ask for a side of the Sweet Thai Cilantro Sauce! Another spot well worth the visit, especially if you are interested in water sports, is Kite Beach which is just north of the airport. We spent a good amount of time on the beach just watching the kite surfers. The aquarium at the marina was very fun also and has a huge gift shop. We were sad to say goodbye, but I know it won't be too long before we reach our to Larisa and Michael again! Thank you both so much for your hospitality and making our vacation one to remember. Aloha!



September 2016
Michael and Larisa, September 2016 We have traveled all around the world staying in hotels, homes and condos. Many people have rentals. RARELY do they upgrade. You cherish yours. From granite though out, to waterfall sinks, to top of the line appliances, we could not have asked for more..... You state that we may not want to leave while we were there....and we didn't!!!!! What a relaxing vacation! For people who want more, anything they want is close by. We found a super new ice-cream shop just down the street with home made ice cream on-site that we visited 3 times!!!!! We left the info in your super informative guide..... Thanks again for everything! We are grateful, tan, and happy!!!! (2 great pools on-site!!!) Master Mikols and Master Dunphy

My husband, son and I were delighted with our stay in Larisa and Michael’s beautiful home for eight nights in August. We highly recommend that you stay here! The location on Maui is great, and the complex is beautiful and very well maintained - we loved the welcoming heated pool and barbecue areas, right in front of the ocean. But even more lovely was the ocean view from the kitchen, living room and lanai - it made us feel like we were floating on the water which was a beautiful turquoise color, framed by palm trees swaying in the breeze! It was such a treat to see all those lovely sunsets, stars and moonlight from the lanai. And we loved the constant soft sound of the waves! The cross ventilation was great in this condo - lots of fresh air and ceiling fans so we didn’t need the AC most of the time but if you do need it, the AC is both efficient and quiet. This condo would be a good choice for two couples in addition to families, as the two bedrooms and bathrooms are fairly equivalent, both beautiful and very comfortable and quiet for sleeping. The bedrooms and bathrooms are also well separated for privacy. The condo was impeccably clean and tidy, and decorated beautifully with high end finishes. Everything we needed for cooking and beach activities was provided within the unit, and we enjoyed walking to the market for fresh fruit, going for runs on the back roads toward Napili Bay, and going for walks along the beautiful shoreline path toward Kaanapali. We also walked from Napili Bay to the beach in front of the Ritz Carlton one day which was lovely - saw a number of turtles. We had a car so we also enjoyed snorkelling, swimming, and hiking all over the island, zip lining, a lovely dinner at Mama’s Fish House Restaurant on the north shore, a Slack Key concert, a day trip to Lanai, and much more. It was a great summer vacation. We loved Maui and part of that enjoyment was our stay in the Mancini’s lovely home. They were also excellent in regard to all communication. We are grateful that they are sharing it through VRBO and hope we have the opportunity to stay again soon. Thank you again, Larisa and Michael."

We loved everything about this place: the views from the balcony are amazing, it has a great floor plan and very high quality furnishings (towels, blankets, furniture, bathroom fixtures), and it was spotless. It's spacious and comfortable. The owners have provided virtually any beach supplies you might want: beach chairs and umbrellas, boogey boards, snorkel gear and more. If you open the front door, (there's a screen door) you'll get a great breeze running through the place out to the balcony. We loved our time there and can't imagine how it could be better in any way. We spent a lot of time on the balcony each morning and evening-- it was balmy and perfect. The beach nearby is nice and sandy. It is popular for wading, snorkeling, boogey boarding and strolling. The pool area is beautiful. We swam there every day and just soaked it up. The pool was busy, but never felt crowded. There's a covered lanai that overlooks the pool area; it has a pepsi/water machine, water fountain and bathroom. It's nice if you want to get out of the sun. I think the pool has a saline system, so it doesn't have that harsh chlorine feel. There are barbecue grills down in the pool area and each evening families came down to grill, it smelled great. We also had a good time using the putting greens. Duke's Beach House is within walking distance. It's a beautiful beach-front restaurant with really good food. Their Korean tacos were delicious. There's a great sandy stretch of beach down in front of that restaurant. There's also a public beach parking lot very near there, in case you don't want to lug your beach gear there on foot. We went over to the Iao Valley for some short hikes through rain forest and also up north to the Honolau Bay area to see more rain forests. Thank you so much to Larisa and Michael! We loved being able to stay in your condo and will return as often as we can.

What a delight to spend our family, summer vacation in the Mancini's condo! Gorgeously furnished and decorated with all the amenities you could want. We are a family of 4 with 17 and 20 year old children. We were all quite pleased with the separate, clean and beautiful bedroom and bathrooms. The gourmet kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, dishes, culinary tools, as well as spices and various food items. Their thoughtful guest gift on the kitchen island was an added surprise. All in all, this condo was located in a great spot to enjoy all beach and inland activities, and supplied with equipment to do that, while enjoying amazing rainbows and sunsets daily from the ocean front lanai! Mahalo!

I'm not sure it would be possible to have an condo with a better view. This third floor condo is right on the ocean, with an island (Malakai) in front of you and another island visible to the south. The bathrooms are nicely designed/tiled and the kitchen has new appliances. Better yet, the owner supplies everything you need--towels, beach chairs, body boards, all the kitchen equipment you need, etc. Plus they even had a bottle of wine, beers in the refrigerator, and Hawaiian coffee there at our arrival. Unfortunately for us, the weather wasn't particularly cooperative (three days of rain that were not helped by everyone saying, "This is so unusual"). But the sunsets we did see on the other three days were spectacular. A glass of wine watching the sun go down with boats floating in the ocean... Wow. I really can't give enough superlatives to this condo. There are a lot of large complexes around it (including a number of new contructions), but these condos only have four floors, so it is quite relaxed. The complex also has a concierge/travel guides who helped us plan a number of excursions (snorkling, road to Hanna, sunset cruise). And even with the rain, Lahaina, which is always sunny, is only a 20 minute drive away.

The view - fantastic! The unit - perfect for a family of 4. (two kids 9 & 6) Owners - forthright from the get go. What do I mean by that - we booked our unit based on the same as you probably are - reviewing the reviews. After we booked it - we received a communication well in advance of our stay from Larisa in regards to construction on the sea wall most likely taking place during our stay and that we could either a) get our EM deposit back and look for another unit or b) receive a reduction in the rate as an inconvenience for the construction. We chose the latter and while the construction was not the greatest to look at while looking out at the beautiful view - we appreciated more the honesty and open communication well in advance of our trip. If you choose this unit - I can't imagine you will be disappointed!

We just returned from 9 nites at Larisa and Michael's waterfront 2 bedroom unit, and we look forward to going back. Owners were excellent and attentive to work with, and the unit was sparkling clean and well equipped. The view can't be beat, (except for the current seawall construction project). Papakeya is a quiet and friendly resort, with good stores and some restaurants within easy walking distance. We enjoyed grilling by the pool most nites, a great way to end the day and meet other guests.

Wonderful condo with everything you might need. From the gourmet kitchen with everything you can think of to beach towels, chairs, and boogie boards. This really was a home away from home. Beautiful ocean view perfect for whale watching and sunsets. Larisa was wonderful and let us know about the construction ahead of time but to be honest we did not see or hear them much during our week. The resort is nice and pretty quiet. We took advantage of the pools, hot tubs, and Mai Tai night. It was great to be able to walk to local stores and restaurants - we particularly liked the Farmers Market and Fisherman's Market. It was also nice having a grocery store we could walk to. Overall we had a great time - Larisa was very helpful and the condo was exactly what we were looking for in our Maui adventure.
