The fine print (LOL):

Papakea Resort charges a facility use fee of $17/day for the first 10 days of every 30-day stay, up to a maximum of $170 for any 30-consecutive day rental period. The front desk collects this fee that covers such resort amenities as parking, pools and spas, tennis courts, putting greens and shuffleboard and resort-wide free internet. We pay that when we stay as well:)

Complete contact information is required for all adults 18 and over staying in our home. Name, physical address, cell # and email address.

We do not have a rental 'contract' nor require a security deposit. We ask only one thing: Please treat our home with love. It is not a hotel. It is our home away from home. Pretend we are staying in your home as guests while you are staying in our home. The feeling you get when you walk back into your home after we leave is the same feeling we want when we walk into our home after you have left:) Registration Number: TA-154-616-7808-01, 2440010550292, GE-154-616-7808-01

Had a great time at this property. Really appreciated the garden and ocean views, the full kitchen, in-unit laundry, air conditioning and seamless check-in. Already wish we were back on the island!

The condo was perfect for our family of five. The view of Molokai was amazing. We made use of the lanai everyday to watch the waves. I appreciated that there was a sewing kit-I made use of it! There is a grocery store in the shopping complex just outside of Papakea and an ABC store outside the complex via an access gate. The extra amenities, like tennis and the putting green, provided entertainment for our children. The two pools are in close proximity to each other so it was fun to try the “different” pool. The hot tubs had ample space whenever we made use of it. At this unit, you can hear the fountain in the koi pond. For me the sound was soothing as it sounded like wind and rain. There were small toiletries in the bathrooms and full bottles of hand soap at all the sinks, plenty of towels for the bathrooms/kitchen and beach towels. One roll of paper towels and extra toilet paper was provided. The condo is tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The one issue we had with the dryer was received and will be addressed after contacting the new owner Jay. Thank you Sondra and Jay for allowing us to enjoy your condo!

Excellent resort and excellent condo. Grounds and amenities on site were top notch. Many small extras that went above and beyond. Grounds were impeccable. Condo was great. Very well outfitted and really nice unit. Well suited for a family of five. Had a little trouble with dryer but worked around it. Highly recommend and hope to be back soon.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The unit is well appointed and had everything we needed. I had debated a ground floor unit vs this one and so glad we chose an upper level for the amazing view. Even though we were already into April, we saw several whales and rainbows from the lanai. Beach towels and other beach supplies made heading out to the beach so easy. Beautiful property with plenty of parking and lots to do (check the activities list at the front desk and sign up early!). We did a lei-making class that was really fun and only took about 30 minutes. The kids (ages 14 and 16) loved having their own space with their bedroom at the opposite end of the unit and a private bathroom. Beds were comfortable and unit is more spacious than we expected. Communication with owner was easy and all of my questions were answered quickly. Would definitely stay again!

The condo was exactly as described. Fully appointed in a beautiful location close to everything. The only downside was no beach at the property but multiple beaches very close by. We appreciated having the beach equipment available for our use and having a washer and dryer was another bonus! Saw whales from the lanai and did the lei making class. Would definitely recommend!

Beautiful, updated condo with a fantastic ocean view from the lanai. We saw lots of whales. Sondra was extremely responsive to a very few, minor maintenance issues. We had a great time and would stay here again.

Our first time in Maui and Hawaii turned out to be a very rainy week. Fortunately we had a great condo to come back to after our rainy adventures. Very clean and furnished with everything. Resort is nice and well maintained. Would definitely recommend to others. Hopefully we will have a chance to come back.

Sondra was wonderful to communicate with. She had ideas for excursions and places to eat nearby. The most thoughtful. She had every single thing we needed down to hand soap at every sink, plenty of towels, all the beach things and grilling utensils. My friends stayed at another unit on property that had none of these things. Thank you mauitude!

We absolutely loved our stay at J302 in Papakea. The grounds are impeccably maintained, staff is friendly and courteous, the unit is furnished with high quality amenities like you have in your own home. We are also very close to several great spots for coffee, food entertainment and snorkeling. We couldn’t have asked for a better spot to stay in Lahaina. Sondra, the owner, is very easy to deal with if questions arise, and she’s extremely considerate. We will definitely be back at Papakea and will work hard to stay at one of the various places she specifically owns within Papakea. Highly, HIGHLY recommend.

This condo fit our needs perfectly for a wonderful week in Maui. The owners have thought of everything and we really appreciated to beach chairs and towels. The kitchen was especially well stocked with all sorts of pots, pans and accessories. Having a washer and dryer in the unit was super helpful. We highly recommend this place and will definitely re-book if we are back in the area in the future.

This condo was perfect for our family vacation in Maui! We loved being able to cook as well as enjoy coffee on our private patio looking out at the ocean. All of the amenities made our first trip ever to Hawaii amazing!

This is our second time staying at this location, first time in this unit. The view from the lanai was outstanding and the unit was well supplied. The real value in this property is the location. There is a beach walking distance and many more just a short drive away, as are hikes, golf courses, shopping and restaurants. The host was very easy to work with and detailed with information.

Just like the photos show, the views from the lanai are fantastic. The host has thought of everything you'll need for your stay. The rooms were very comfortable. The grounds of the resort are absolutely immaculate. You have the pool/hot tub/tennis/pickle ball as options to keep you busy. Stores, restaurants and food trucks all within walking distance. Needless to say, I highly recommend this resort and plan to be back here again soon!

The condo was beautiful. The beds were very comfortable and quality of linens, pillows and towels were great. The view is amazing and our first morning there we sat on balcony with our coffee and watched the whales, even saw a breach. The condo is in a great location. We were able to walk to a food truck park one night for dinner. The check in and out process is was fast and easy. If I come to Maui again, I wouldn’t hesitate to stay in this condo again.

We had an amazing visit coming to Maui in January. This was our first time staying in the condo. It was AMAZING! We absolutely loved watching whales out on the lanai every morning with coffee. Your home was spectacular to stay in and we thank you so much!
