The condo is lovely and the location and view spectacular! The mornings and evenings were my favourite. I loved listening to the ocean right outside my window and I would spend hours on my lanai looking at the ocean view and the stars at night.
There were a few issues in the suite with plumbing and the patio door being hard to open and close. But once the owners were informed, the issues were resolved as soon as possible. Their repairman was the best! We was polite and went above and beyond to make sure everything worked perfectly!
I would definitely stay there again. 😊
We had an amazing trip at a beautiful property :)
We had a fabulous stay in F109. It had everything we wanted. Loved the direct access to the lawn and lounges to watch the ocean and Molokai.
OMG The view is great, Nice condo, perfect location. We had everything we needed. I still can't get over the sunsets from the lanai. Thank you so much for letting us use your place for vacation. Can't wait to come back.
We loved our stay at F109! The unit was exactly as described and the location was amazing. We loved sitting out on the deck to watch the sunset every night for cocktail hour. The putting greens, pools, shuffleboard area is a bonus as well. Would stay again!
This property was perfect for us. We enjoyed Sunset Dinners every night. Units location a short walk to pool, spa and barbeques (which were all used daily). Really enjoyed the ground floor just being able to walk out on the grass through the sliding door. Door was a little hard to open, But that is an easy maintenance item the did not effect our stay what so ever.
We are already planning a return visit. Papakea is a great resort and this unit made it better.
Perfect location for a quiet vacation. Comfortable furnishings inside with ocean and beach access right outside.
I’ll start by saying that we’ve stayed in various units at Papakea over the years and love the Papakea location and property. During this trip we had family in other units and did a short stay in this unit until we could join our family in a larger unit.
We enjoyed our stay in this unit. The unit itself is average in our experience of rental condos. The kitchen was well appointed, nice appliances, and good selection of dishes, etc… only thing missing was a pair of scissors (I couldn’t find them). I did not love the shower - mostly because the shower head didn’t put out a lot of water which made scrubbing off zinc based sunscreen and rinsing my thick hair really difficult. The bedroom is typical of our experience here - tight but a good bit of storage, plenty of hangers, and fairly comfortable bed. Cleanliness - unit was clean - could use a little extra attention in the corners & between the furniture and walls, and the seal at the bottom of the shower - flusher on the toilet needs to be replaced. Lanai furniture is standard outdoor furniture, not too fancy but comfortable and functional.
I would stay in this unit again just for the location, view, and convenience.
VIEW WAS SPECTACULAR. The unit was clean and well appointed, the bed was comfortable, the resort was very nice, and the location was awesome and convenient. The unit was on the first floor approximately 25 FEET from the ocean, and, did I mention, the VIEW WAS SPECTACULAR. All good.
Had stayed in L before and loved being by the water. We’re delayed three days getting out from Halifax so didn’t get to enjoy it as long as we would have liked.
The unit was well kept. The view and resort amenities were great! Booking, check-in process was easy.
We love this property. Booked this unit last 2 years. Was trying to book for next year and was waiting for the rest of the time we wanted to open up. Messaged manager but someone booked in meantime me. Booked another unit next year but would have booked this unit again
The location was perfect and the condo was well equipped and clean. Bev is very responsive to any questions too. I will definitely book with her again!
Property was perfect. No issues. Beautiful location with the water right outside the door. Ocean front!
My girlfriend and I were more than pleased with this place! We wish we could just stay and live here. Everything was accurately described and perfectly clean. The check in was easy and location is amazing! Definitely would think to stay here again. Thank you for letting us use your beautiful condo!! You will not be disappointed with your stay here
Great getaway to Maui. Condo is right off the ocean. Great views and sunsets. Condo is clean and had everything we needed for our vacation. Blender got the most use. Condo grounds are well kept. Plenty of activities to do without having to leave. Snorkeling was decent also. Owners were very responsive during the booking process and gave us all the information we needed to enjoy our stay. Didn't need to communicate any more than that since we didn't have any issues. Great place. Highly recommend. Aloha!!!
Staff was excellent at the Resort. We were very pleased with our condo. The owner of condo was very responsive throughout the whole rental process before and during our stay. We had reserved months in advance and would rent from her again.
We have stayed at the Papakea property four times over the past 10 years and it never fails to be an excellent stay. We have stayed at this particular unit twice but have found that the unit is need of a little refresh. The maintenance of the grounds of this property is amazing, thank you.
Very nice, quite location with great sunset views!
My husband and I, along with our 1-year old baby, had wonderful time here! The unit and location absolutely perfect for our family - ground floor, ocean front with a sprawling lawn separating the unit from the water, which was great for our crawling baby and to enjoy the ocean without getting sandy. The property was clean and well kept, as were all the grounds of the Papakea Resort. We loved how quiet the location was, but also just a short walk to the Beach Walk trail, and some of the northern Kaanapali beaches and resorts. The only downside to the place is how noisy the AC was both inside and outside on the porch, but it did not detract from our time. We would definitely return again!
The trip wouldn’t have been as good if we stayed somewhere else. This location is perfect; from being walking distance to all the great shops and cafes to an amazing ocean view right on the porch. The place was clean and the resort was very accomodating. I highly recommend.
Overall experience was great. Clean, quiet property. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
Location was great, furniture in condo old and dirty, needs professional cleaning or replaced. Bathroom sick ran very slow, backed up with water. Small bugs on kitchen counters. Condo old and run down except for new counters in kitchen and bathroom.
amazing location, exactly as advertised! Save yourself some time and just book today!
Read the reviews from the previous renters, as all is true. The master bed is horribly uncomfortable, the window air conditioner not capable of reaching bedroom, worn/dirty bedding , no closet space, and it seems like they leave previous renters condiments/food for the next renters which seems unsanitary. The shampoo and conditioner in the bathroom is also left overs from the previous renters. Now, we did complain to the owner and she promptly contacted the cleaning crew who came by and re-cleaned the unit and replaced the bedding.
But if you can look past those issues, the unit is situated with a beautiful view of the ocean and albeit long walk to a decent beach.
This was our third stay at this unit. They have done updates and looks lovely as always. Relaxing vacation!
Amazing ocean front view from your living room and ground floor patio! The rental had everything we needed and great location. Quieter condo unit but close walk to the busier Kaanapali beach boardwalk. Highly recommend and we can’t wait to go back!
Overall, beautiful property and view. Love hearing the ocean!! The unit wasn't very clean when we checked in, the bed blanket was still wet and in the dryer, and we had to make up the sofa bed ourselves. Could really use an update on the furniture, or at least clean what is in there.
Let's say we are now wanting to buy this condo or one close to it!
This property nails everything you would need!
Best views and clean condo
It was absolutely wonderful to be back in Maui!
Bev's place is absolutely lovely and the view from our lanai second to none. Every night we had a front row seat to gorgeous sunsets and as a bonus one night an amazing show from a small pod of whales who were the last to leave for northern waters. Thankyou Bev for making our stay relaxing and hassle free and for sharing your lovely island home. We will be back
A wonderful location, great accommodations and amenities at the resort. Property owner awesome. Overall, a perfect spot to relax and enjoy the sounds and sights of oceanfront waves and sunsets.
Location was great with awesome views from the back lanai. There will be a lot of people walking along the sea wall so don’t expect a lot of privacy.
The unit has one AC window unit in the living room. Hard to keep the bedroom cool since it is all the way on the opposite end of the unit. AC unit is also blocked by the TV stand.
After accessing the unit for the first time we checked the bed and noticed that the sheets had hair on them. The top blanket or sheet was in the dryer still wet so the bed was not fully made. The linens also look like they need to be tossed due to stains on them which made it somewhat unappealing to sleep on. The floor in the bedroom also did not feel clean even though the unit owner requests no shoes after entry.
Bathroom shower needs more attention as there was black mold on the door sweep and other areas.
Provided beach equipment was nice but the beach chairs should be updated as they are old and uncomfortable. There was only one Tommy Bahama chair. Umbrellas were in good condition.
Kitchen was well stocked and we had the essentials that you should expect when renting out a property.
Expect a daily resort fee as well.
We love being ground floor and having easy access to both pools, plus you can't beat the view!
It was beautiful
The only problem was the internet.
Right on the water. Beautiful view when people aren’t camped right outside your lanai. If you crave privacy not the place for you. Really wanted to love this property, but there were issues.
The whole unit needs a DEEP Clean!! The air conditioner is just a window unit in the living room. Bedroom and bathroom were very warm and stuffy. The bedroom is very small. During our stay my husband couldn’t sleep in the bedroom due to difficulty breathing. The carpet in the bedroom looks very old and dirty.
There are some nicer, newer appliances in the kitchen, but many dishes and utensils were dirty or needed to be replaced. Also we were disappointed to find only one adult size beach chair. There was a beach umbrella that we were happy to see and use. However, beach towels were old and needed to be replaced. The washer and dryer worked well and that’s always a plus on beach vacations.
The Papakea resort overall had well maintained grounds. There are BBQs around the pool area and they were very popular with the guests. All units are owned by different individuals, some units being nicer than others. I personally can’t recommend F109.
Excellent location prime view was amazing. Had a great time. All amenities inthe condo great. Landscaping is really beautiful. Distance to parking was a little inconvenient ABC store was close by. Other shopping needs also nearby.
As described, ground floor walkout to seawall. New kitchen, everything works well.
Loved the view
Lovely, ocean front, condo. Had everything we needed. We loved the easy access of ground floor. Restaurants and grocery close by. Papakea is a beautiful property! Well kept grounds. Mahalo!
It is our first trip to the islands and it's been perfect. The room was as described and pictured and had everything necessary for a week-long stay. There are groceries and restaurants a block away. There's also a boardwalk that connects a string of resorts, most of which had available poolside dining.
December is humpbackwack whale season and the activity visible from the patio was fabulous. The supplied binoculars are a nice touch and made us the envy of many other guests. There is a seawall in front of the unit so you'll need to walk or drive to a beach area if you're looking to play in the surf.
I would definitely stay here again and would recommend the unit and the resort highly.
Grand Rapids, MI
Loved being able to hear the ocean and view the rainbows over Molokai
Perfect location - close to everything. The lanai was amazing and worth it to walk right out to the water and not have to use steps or the elevator! Highly recommend.
Superior setting, beautiful property. What's not to love about Maui.
This was a beautiful location and the condo is perfectly situated in the complex and sited on the ocean. It was clean and comfortable with lots of floaty toys and snorkeling gear.
Enjoyed your little place very much! Thanks 😊
Oceanfront first floor. Great views. Well stocked kitchen. Nice new appliances. We really enjoyed our trip. Thank you.
Not only a stunning location and view but the kitchen was well equipped to prepare meals, especially important during these times when restaurantes were not accepting reservations. The bed and linens were extremely comfortable. I wish this unit had updated split air like other units we have stayed in, but luckily the weather cooperated and was cooler. There were no checkout instructions at the property regarding cleaning and such.
We loved this property so much! It was a sad day when we had to leave. The place was very clean. The ocean is actually right there from there from the patio. That was easily our favorite part. Check in and out was a breeze. Would 100% stay here again.
Great place to stay...you will definitely not be disappointed. Beverly is super responsive...
We stayed here for our week long honeymoon. It was great, when we first got there we didn’t realize how close we were to the water. You are literally 20 feet away which was really nice. I wish we would have stayed a bit longer because honestly we wanted to experience all of Maui so we didn’t really spend much time in our room or on the premises. From what we seen everything was kept up very well on the property and in inside. The location for first time visitors was ideal. However if you’re more on the adventurous side and are going to be exploring most the time on your trip I personally would I book a cheaper route just because we literally maybe watched one sunset from our room. Overall it was great and we were very pleased with our stay.
In addition to what others have mentioned: bring your own spices. The ones there are very old. It was nice to have bbqs to use.
We had an absolutely wonderful time in Kaanapalli. Beverly’s rental unit had everything we needed for a perfect week on Maui, and I can’t say enough positive things about the views from the lanai. Highly recommended for future travelers!
This is my second time stay staying here and it did not disappoint. The view is beautiful and the condo well stocked with a boogie board, beach chairs and snorkel equipment, and beach umbrellas. The kitchen is fully equipped. The property manager is delightful and I have enjoyed working with her (we tried to stay 2020 as well). I absolutely recommend staying here, unless it’s during my future dates!
Beautiful place. Closest to the water we’ve been. Highly recommend.
the perfect place for a family of four. stores are close by and the sunset is priceless. Definitely a great place to stay!! you wont be disappointed!!
Great place, friendly neighbors and BEAUTIFUL view
We loved the place and view from the apartment. The apartment was very clean and well maintained, the view from patio was awesome. We enjoyed pool, golf and other amenities, overall we loved this place and enjoyed our stay.
Beautiful property that is well maintained. Great amenities, walking distance to shops and beaches, amazing view of sunset every night. We will definitely be back. Only complaint was we ran out of toilet paper and needed some general cleaning supplies, but otherwise we had a perfect stay. Thanks so much for having us!
The location was absolutely unbelievable and my girlfriend and I enjoyed everything about the place. The view was amazing. The bed was super comfortable and the resort and amenities were awesome.
Wry relaxing and scenic condo... We loved our stay and would definitely book again in the future, only because it would be very hard to book in the past... The Condo is actually better then the oictures... Thank You so much....
We recently stayed at Papakea, for the 3rd time! We LOVE the property, and the oceanfront condos, really are ocean front!
This condo had everything we needed. Very clean, and comfortable! Love the layout, it doesn't get any better than sitting on the lanai listening to the waves.
We will be back.......
The view from the room was just fabulous!!!
The views from our condo were just spectacular. The condo was very nice and comfortable. Everything that we needed was there including even some pool toys and putters. I understand that there is a remodel in the very near future so we'll definitely be back! Thank you for letting us enjoy your home!
We stayed here for three nights to join friends celebrating a birthday and staying in a large unit on the property. It was a very pleasant place to be,
well equipped, with stunning views of the sea. We used the pool and hot tub, and although we were just a couple, we noted that the complex is very child-friendly. Bagpipe music trailing in the doorway one night was an added plus.
Small suggestion: I looked for and could not find a broom and dustpan, so I couldn't clean up some sand I had brought into the bathroom.
The rest of the condo is carpeted (odd for the beach, I thought) and there was a vacuum but I didn't want to bring it into the bathroom area.
Absolutely fit the description listed and loved every aspect! Stunning view, convenient to store and farmers market, steps from the beach, very comfortable and welcoming. I plan to come back and hopefully will stay in this location again!!!
View is amazing and condo is 40 feet from water. Interior could use some updating but view more than makes up for it. On a clear day Molokai is visible and whales can be seen from patio
The condo was just as described. Comfortable, well appointed, and well equipped. The bed was very comfortable and the views were absolutely to die for. We will be back. Jonathan
