From the road you would not know this gem of a property is nestled along the ocean. Our oceanfront room was lovely, stocked full of wonderful amenities and the view from our lanai...spectacular! Mahalo Bev for a special stay at your condo.

The third floor lanai had a amazing view of the ocean. We spent a lot of time taking in the view. Whales were active and a couple of Monk seals were feeding right in front of us a couple of nights. Binoculars and beach gear were available for use. Kitchen was stocked with dishes and utensils, toaster and coffee makers. Cleanliness overall was good aside from the floors. I know with the beach, sand traffic it is difficult to keep up with. The air conditioner was very loud. We did not really need to use it. The Lani offered a nice breeze and the ceiling fans helped circulate air. Bed was comfortable. Location was great. We could walk to many food options, groceries and along the beach.

We had a lovely stay. The property is beautiful and well-kept. We loved that we could easily soak in the ocean every day. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to cook. Thank you so much for a wonderful and relaxing stay.

Property is ideally located on the shore with a perfect 3rd floor elevation. It had everything we needed for our comfortable & relaxing 8 night stay. From our balcony we saw colorful sunsets & (since I’m an astronomy buff) found Venus, Mercury, and Mars together in the twilight. Mercury is very hard to see so was quite a thing! We also witnessed a marriage proposal while sitting on our balcony & joined in applause with other onlookers. The resort was clean and the cute little birds & lizards properly stayed outside where they belonged. Loved the pools, putting greens, plentiful recliners on the grassy areas along the sea wall. Kitchen had everything we needed & the A/C, ceiling fans, & cool night breezes kept things comfortable even in July humidity & temps. Hope to return again some day. Highly recommended!

Great location and the unit was well furnished clean and functional. Kitchen nicely equipped. It’s a big development but this unit is right on the water. Third floor provided good view of ocean. Only issue was we did not realize there was a resort fee in addition to our Vrbo fee. But it was worth it since we got to play pickle ball. Shuffleboard and used the pool and spa.

This property is as advertised...the location is perfectly close to both Lahaina and the beaches of Kannapali. We enjoyed our stay. The sunsets from the lanai are the best.

A very nice complex and the condo is in excellent condition….the view from the lanai is even better than the pictures show…..we already had spent time in Lahaina eating out on Front Street so here we walked across the street to restaurants and to the food trucks and brought our meals back to eat on the lanai..Bev was quick to respond to our communications…….would definitely stay here again if we return to the island!

What incredible hosts Bev and Mike are. Not only is their condo absolutely spectacular with a magnificent ocean front view but they have thought of absolutely everything as far as anything one would need whilst staying in Maui. From cooking equipment to towels to snorkeling gear and even some golf balls! The kitchen is spectacularly filled with pots and pans and baking equipment and every utensil one would ever require in a kitchen. There are garbage bags, washing machine powder, ziplock bags just to name a few other extras. I wish I could name all the positives but there is not enough room! There were absolutely zero negatives. The property is kept spectacularly with manicured gardens and two lovely pools and spas. The condo is beautifully decorated and one could not ask for anything better. Thank you for a marvellous stay!

Beautiful resort, very clean. Condo had absolutely everything you need for a wonderful stay. Sleeping to the sounds of waves and waking to the sounds of happy birds. Relaxation at it's finest. Two large pools onsite, hot tub and BBQs at each pool. Beautiful putting greens and had both Pickleball, Tennis courts for all day use. Available in room Tennis rackets, number of snorkels(children size fins), boogy boards, flotation devices,beach chairs, cooler, putters and golf balls. Well lit courts so after sunset matches also available. Whale watching with the provided binoculars from the lanai was perfect and no need to pay for a charter. (Although the boat rides are fun) Plenty of food choices close by, grocery store, coffee and food trucks ABC store with gas all within walking distance. Short trip into lahaina plenty of beaches close by also. Condo was very comfortable lots of TV choices for News, weather, sports and plenty of apps to log into. Shower had good water pressure even with a local water shortage. Our 7 night stay was amazing. Personal preference is a firm mattress this bed was soft/very soft. Might be exactly how some like it, just a personal preference. I would recommend this unit to anyone. Really made our 15th anniversary trip memorable. Communication with management was easy through the entire process. Aloha! Have a great 2023 Everyone enjoy your stays.

This is a picturesque resort. The views were incredible. The unit was clean and fully equipped for our needs. The owner was easy to communicate with and made this a wonderful vacation.

We had a wonderful time for our six nights stay at this oceanfront condo. It was absolutely beautiful. One of my favorite things was to sit on the balcony and just look at the view. It never got old. We also got to see lots of whales swimming around in the distance. The owners were very responsive in communication and the check-in couldn’t have been easier. The place is well-stocked with everything you could ever need. The only word of advice that I would give would be to space your showers out a little. The hot water heater is small- so just be aware of that. This was a perfect place for the two of us. We had a wonderful stay, and I would go back in a heartbeat.

The ocean front unit next to the one my wife and I used for over 20 years. She passed away this was my first time back in Maui without her. The Papakea F-302 was so welcoming and nice that I enjoyed the rather emotional trip. Mahalo.

I can't say enough wonderful things about this property! Everything was exactly as stated in the listing. Very clean, well stocked, very comfortable for 4 people. And the view from the balcony... unbelievable. Very close to both pools. Very easy check-in/check-out process. Even the pull-out bed was comfortable, according to my 2 adult kids. Help was readily available if we needed it. Great location. Would definitely stay again and hope I can!

Perfect choice - amazing view, quiet, close walk to the food truck park, close drive to everything else. Nice to be able to cook some meals yourself plus a washer/dryer.

We were amazed at how close the condo is to the ocean! The condo is beautiful! However, upon our arrival, everything was great until we noticed the sliding glass door and screen...the screen was bent and leaning against the window and the lower, right wheel of the glass slider door was broken and completely off track! In addition, the toilet seat was broken. This was not the fault of the condo owner, Beverly. We feel the cleaning people/condo complex management should have fixed the problems before we arrived. Obviously, the cleaning people would have noticed both issues while working in the condo after the prior tenants left. We immediately contacted Beverly and she arranged for her maintenance man to fix the problems. The door issues were completed by the next afternoon. Again, not the fault of condo owner, Beverly...the complex management should have taken care of issues before our arrival that night. Beverly was always pleasant and professional whenever we contacted her. We absolutely loved sitting on the lanai, overlooking the gorgeous ocean and sunsets!

Wonderful stay. Grounds are beautiful with pools, hot tubs, koi ponds, and golf holes. Close to stores and Lahaina. If you want a Sandy beach, this is not it but wonderful waves & sunsets. We would definitely stay here again.

November 2021
What a great spot to stay! The view from the balcony was incredible! We loved using the two beach chairs and exploring the different beaches on the island. We’d come back in time to get in the community hot tub…drinks on the balcony, out to dinner….Perfect days!

My husband and I booked this property for the first 6 nights of our honeymoon in Maui and could not have been more pleased! The pool and grounds are beautiful at the resort and this unit in particular has an unobstructed view of the ocean that is unforgettable for sunsets! We enjoyed using the many BBQs and grilling our own fresh fish from the fish market across the street. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

My overall impression was very positive! This is a very good place to stay if you like the sounds of ocean waves. Everything you would need is in walking distance and the unit overlooks the ocean.

We booked this trip when we got vaccinated in the spring. The week before our trip the Delta variant was starting to escalate, and we almost cancelled. Beverly was very kind and patient and helpful as we struggled with our decision. We decided to go, because it was just going to get worse from here. We love this unit. It’s a great complex. The views are amazing. The sounds of ocean waves are hypnotic. We had all our needs met being here. Beverly was extremely helpful when we had questions on our trip. We would totally come back here. It’s a fantastic unit, and it’s also a great location in regards to West Maui. Close to Kaanapali and Lahaina. Thank you so much for helping us recharge. This pandemic has been so difficult, and it was a relief to have space and time to decompress.

F302 was clean and well stocked. If you need something that is not in this kitchen, you may have forgotten you are on vacation. Loved Papakea Resort. Well maintained and just the right size to not be overwhelmed. The view from F302 was gorgeous. I will miss our breakfast on the balcony and evening sunsets.

The view was really beautiful. There was a grocery store (decent prices too) within walking distance and beach where turtles were swimming right along with us! There were also a few restaurants and food trucks within walking distance and a short drive into Lahaina. The grounds were also well kept and beautiful. The kitchen seemed fully stocked although we didn't use it much. We found the place very relaxing and it didn't feel overcrowded (we later stayed at a hotel on Kaanapali Beach which felt a lot more crowded like back home in San Diego). The staff was friendly. Only issue is we did run out of hot water for the shower which happened only after we ran the dishwasher. The air conditioning was nice, didn't quite completely cool the bedroom but the fan worked great and the place didn't get hot. Would definitely recommend!

It doesn’t usually take much to get a good review from us. So this shows just how bad the issues were here! Upon arrival check in was pretty easy. We got to our room and noticed beach towels in the washer, then I tripped over a pile of bath towels on the floor. Looked in the bedroom to find the bed wasn’t made either. We realized the room hadn’t been cleaned! We tried to contact the owner for more than an hour with no luck. Then walked to the front desk and was told all they could do was contact the owner. They didn’t have any success either. Now it’s 7pm and we had no choice but to clean the room ourselves or try to find another place to stay. We looked around for supplies and found that those hadn’t been restocked. To the store we went to buy some. The owner was in contact 1st thing in the morning, extremely apologetic and refunded our 1st night’s stay immediately. All we asked at that point was to have the toilet paper restocked because we were at less than half a roll. We were told the housekeeper was on the way. Awesome, sucked that our first night was a tragedy but didn’t want to dwell on it. So we headed out to enjoy the pool and views for the afternoon. We got back to the room hours later only to find that we STILL didn’t have toilet paper. At this point we have enough for one more flush, that’s it. We tried to contact the owner again with no luck. Contacted the front desk as well, no joy. We dressed for dinner and still no word from the owner. At this point, we’re out and literally had to leave the room to be able to use the restroom. The owner called us back while we were out in search of a stocked bathroom and ensured us that the housekeeper was on the way this time. We finally had supplies, more than 24 hours after our arrival. This review isn’t poor because we arrived to a dirty room. Stuff happens and though it SUCKED, the owner’s response when she got our message was satisfactory and we would’ve still given a good review. This review is poor because of the complete lack of urgency/follow through AFTER she found out our room was dirty. I don’t get how all the paperwork says “call this number immediately if you need anything” but no one ever answers said number. We didn’t expect much but at a bare minimum, we expected that someone be available to make sure we made it in ok and if not make sure issues are resolved. We did love the views and the grounds. The Condo was also pretty well equiped.

F302 is an oceanfront unit just as described. You are steps away from the ocean, so we loved sitting on the balcony mornings and evenings just watching and listening to the waves!

Bev’s was honestly everything we were looking for. Comfy king size bed, plenty of space to move around throughout the unit. Full sized kitchen with anything you could need. And who can beat that view from the balcony? Absolutely loved our time there in Maui and would absolutely stay again if we returned!

Loved the resort! Condo was what we expected based on pictures. Kitchen was stocked with herbs, spices, oil, vinegar, etc. Our only disappointment was that the mattress in the bedroom needs replacing.

June 2012
Hi Bev and Mike. We had a great time in Maui. Your condo was the best. Great views, lots of water toys, good supplies (could use more kitchen towels), and we got lots of exercise hiking up and down 3 flights of stairs at least 10 times a day! The construction noise was a pain but we delt with it. The grounds at Papakea are beautiful and the staff very courtious. We noticed that the window screen over the bed needs repair and the large slider screen needs strengthening. Overall - we couldn't have asked for a nicer condo or location to stay. We will be back!!

Aloha Bev and Mike, It was a pleasure to meet the both of you as we checked into your absolutely wonderful oceanfront unit!!!! The new decorative touches you had just finished adding complemented an already perfect unit!! Everything we needed to enjoy a most relaxing stay was in place and the unit was so clean and comfortable!! Bev, you made the rental process so easy. This was our 5th visitto Papakea and we look forward to our next stay (hopefully in your unit)!!!! The true spirit of Aloha is reflected in your unit! Mahalo!!! Barbara and Scott

Our experience on every level with the owners, resort and VRBO was top notch. Definitely met our expectations and was everything that they promised. We really appreciated the laundry products, coffee filters and all those things that were there for us. Things that you don't want to buy in the store because you would use so little on your vacation. The wake boards were fun. We had a slight problem re-opening the safe once our valuables were stored. We called the owners and they were so friendly and gladly helped us. The problem was taken care of within minutes of our goof up. We will definitely recommend the unit to anyone we know that's going there. Thank goodness for opportunities like this.

April 2011
Just returned from the best vacation ever. What could be better than sitting on that lanai with that incredible view watching whales, dolphins and turtles we could almost reach out and touch them. A fantastic beach to take long walks on. Shops within strolling distance. Very well maintained and pleasant resort. The condo was so welcoming and comfortable, very tastefully decorated. Truely a home away from home. Can not wait to return.

January 2011
Bev and Mike; We just wanted to thank you for the opportunity to rent your beautiful condo on Maui! We had the most fabulous vacation! We celebrated our 35th anniversary and this was without a doubt the best trip we have ever had! We love the Papakea and the view from the lanai is absolutely fantastic! The convenience of the local stores and very nice restaurants, including a health food store is another big plus. We hope to return very soon. Thank you again for your hospitality. James and MaryJane

We've stayed in Maui many times but this is by far the best bargain: beautiful views and clean, comfortable condo. Will stay here again next visit. Thanks for everything.

November 2010
What a great place to spend the week. You can hear the ocean waves and have a view that can't be beat. I loved the decor and how convenient the Condo is. The pool and barbeques are right outside. But overall, just sitting on the deck and enjoying the view is outstanding. I stayed during the whale watching season and saw numerous whales just off shore. UNREAL. Very unscale.

November 2010
Spectacular, unobstructed ocean views from my lanai, living room, dining area, and kitchen on third floor! Our condo was tastefully decorated in an island theme. Laundry facilities included both washer and dryer within the unit. The kitchen had everything we needed! Other amenities included various water and land sports equipment such as tennis racquets, putters, and snorkeling gear. As guests, we were able to to use the tennis courts, putting greens, BBQ's, pools, spas, and cabanas at no charge. Easily accommodates 4 people with one king bed that was sooo comfortable as well as a queen sofa bed. Will be back! Can't wait!

Note: Vacancy calendar is approximate. Visit the owner/manager's reservation site to verify your dates.
