Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Very comfortable ground floor unit! This unit had everything we needed and provided for a wonderful family vacation! It was clean and quiet and a neural location for West Maui adventures. We utilized the barbecues often with the ocean view while our food cooked! It’s not advertised with an ocean view, but from the lanai there is a decent view. There are three TV’s in this unit but not a one was turned on during our stay!

Our condo was excellent. Perfect spot right next to the koi pond and a short distance to the pool and ocean. We loved being on the bottom floor. The use of beach chairs and towels were convenient. Having ice ready in the freezer a plus! Everything we needed was there. The beds were very comfortable. We would love to come back and stay there again! Highly recommend.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We've been staying at Papakea for a couple weeks in the winter for over a decade with the exception of winter 2021 due to covid. We've stayed in several different units, we always enjoy our time and love this low density resort. This unit is fine, adequate, will do. It definitely has some deferred maintenance that is pretty disappointing with a unit in this price range(the stove is missing buttons, the towel rack in the master fell off the wall if you touched the towel on it). The appliances, finishes and furniture were likely part of the original "package" that could be purchased to furnish the unit and are very overdue for an upgrade. Will we be back to Papakea? YES! Will we rent this unit again? No. We moved to another unit (we added another week and this one was booked already) and for a lower rate have a signficantly upgraded unit.

This was out 3rd trip to Papakea and this init was great. It met all of our expectations and having beach towels and chairs was great. We like to say closer to the water but loved having a ground floor unit. We would stay again.

The rental was clean and comfortable in a beautiful location. Enough activities are offered right on/near the property that everyone was happy to stay right there. We walked the beach, had pickle ball tournaments, swam in the pool and ocean, snorkeled, tried a skim board, grilled supper, and watched sunsets happen. We enjoyed walking to the food trucks when we didn’t feel like cooking supper. Fabulous location we would visit again!

We enjoyed the private quiet property. We were not beach front which made it safe for our kids to play by the koi pond while breakfast was being made. Tina was prompt and responsive when we had any questions

We spent two weeks in unit J103 and our family had a great time. The main bedroom has a king size bed and lots of closet and drawer space for clothes and personal items. The second bedroom has two twin size beds, perfect for our kids. The kitchen is functional has lots of counter space. We ate outside almost every day on the lenai looking over the putting green, pool and ocean in the near distance. There is a flat screen TV for anybody who needs time out of the sun, and an air conditioning unit that kept the condo cool. We always love staying at Papakea and this unit didn't dissapoint.

Stayed here in the past. Very nice. Prices are climbing too fast and considering other properties or locations for future vacations.

Thank goodness for the floor fans, otherwise it would have been way too warm to stay in this unit. Also, the bedrooms back on to the parking lot and other tourists were not considerate and spoke very loud while going to their cars at 5 and 6 am! We have stayed at Papakea several other times and have been in units that have been much better. On a positive note, it was great being on the main floor!

This was a much needed vacation given the covid dilemma. Overall the unit was great lots of room to relax and the rooms were spacious. Our mother really enjoyed the beautiful view of the coie fish pond and being a very close walk to the warm hot tub and pool. The property was well kept. The property did not have any beach to walk but just a sort walk to the adjacent property there was a good stretch of beach to walk along. The only improvement I could recommend is to state in the listing the actual amount for the resort fee that is charged once checking in. It did state there was a fee but not the actual amount. Overall I would recommend this unit and location.

We decided spontaneously to travel to Maui for the nine days leading into Labor Day and booked travel and lodging about 10 days before we departed. Surprisingly, this place just north of the Kaanapali Parkway was still available and at a very good price relative to what was left. It totally worked for our family of 5 with one of our kids using the sofa pullout. We didn’t need too large or luxurious as we planned on spending most of our time out and about or at the beach. It was a great base of operations for our end of summer vacation before sending the kids off to school.

I like the location of this rental. The property manager was great with communicating the details. We had a few minor issues but they came to fix the issues immediately. This place comes with 2 beach chairs, 4 beach towels, and 2 boogie boards. I would definitely rent with them again.

One of our favorite places on earth is lying on a beach chair at the sea wall at the Papakea Resort. The breeze and the breathtaking view are phenomenal!

Papakea J-103 was perfect! The unit is on the ground floor, which means that our back door opens right onto the grass and koi pond and it's just steps to the beach and pool. The unit was clean and comfortable, and the kitchen had everything we needed as far as pots and dishes (no food though, so bring everything you need, including salt and oil!). Plenty of towels, dish soap, laundry detergent, which was really great. Papakea is a comfortable resort with a relaxed and fun atmosphere. We loved this unit and hope to come back!

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Papakea Resort was very well kept and the resort grounds were very pretty. The unit we stayed in was very clean and for the most part updated and in good condition. Papakea is located about a 10 minute drive from Lahaina and about 35 minutes from Kahului. We would stay here again.NOTE: I would suggest getting the vacation insurance to anyone going to the Islands. While we were there, there was an incident with a driver, three telephone poles and a palm tree (!) that resulted in our electricity being out for about 16 hours. We were sleeping or gone most of that time so no big deal, but if it had been longer that could have been an issue for our vacation. Just some advice.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very dirty. I was very happy with the location. I was very dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Great location very quiet and great location to downtown Lahaina, Up Country and beach areas. The ground level is real nice, lawn area pond w/frogs and easy access to the pool and ocean wall areas. This property though is NOT well maintained and very outdated compared to neighboring units. All furniture and beds are so uncomfortable that they almost can't be used. Unit resembles a cheap hotel and needs a major deep cleaning and routine maintenance, this was obvious upon arrival. Master bath shower/toilet needs updating very cheap hotel like, does not fit property description. Second bath was updated. We will not rent this unit again but may stay in the same complex because of location.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The Papakea grounds and staff were fantastic! I would definitely stay at Papakea again. However, I would not stay in this particular unit again. It was cheap, and that's why I chose it. Let the buyer beware, as they say. The unit had all the usual stuff... furniture, dishes, towels, laundry, etc. But the problem was with the cleanliness. A few examples were the gecko in our bathroom, our blackened feet from the floors, a cockroach (as big as my pinkie) in our bedroom, mold spots on the outside of the master bath shower curtain (which I can only assume was from the toilet flushing without closing the lid), unknown stains on the living room curtains, and the list goes on. I'm giving this a "middle of the road" review, since Papakea was nice, but the unit was not.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was clean. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We have stayed at several units at Papakea and picked J103 for our annual Christmas/New Year's stay. Booking was easy and the communication from the agency was always timely. As with any condo in Maui, I always tell people you get what you pay for. There are other units that have more updates and there are other units that are more dated. The beds are comfortable (I slept in one of the twins and in the king). The Smart TVs are a nice bonus when you want to watch a movie on Netflix, Amazon Prime, or Hulu (just sign in). The only downside to the unit is the amount of storage space for personal items. The closet in the master has large items (vacuum and fan) while the closet in the 2nd bedroom is full of beach equipment. The kitchen is decently stocked but there is little room for storing food without rearranging items. The shelf above the washer new pieces of tile stacked on it, making it unusable. Considering our length of stay when we visit Maui we like to store things such as luggage out of sight and stock up on food. My only suggestion would be to provide more storage for the guests other than dresser drawers. The tile floors do need a deep clean. Even on arrival our feet/socks became very dirty just walking around.

The unit was clean and all the amenities in the unit were second to none. We’ve stayed at Papakea before and love the property, so we knew what to expect of the grounds and as always it didn’t disappoint. Saying that, our unit was the over the top stocked. We’ve stayed in places that didn’t even have salt & pepper and this place had extra spices and oils. The dishes and utensils were great and the knife set with 3 pairs of kitchen shears was amazing for people who love to cook!

Also great customer service with Aloha Vacation Rentals, I contacted them a few times before we arrived and they answered within hours and were very helpful! We have always stays at Papakea, the pools are great and the grounds are beautiful. my one complaint would be the bed in the master wasn't the greatest but it was ok. But the TV's were all brand new and really nice, great at 4/5am when the kids were up a little too early :)
