We didn’t get into the property n was instructed to turn around because of the deadly wildfires
We stayed in a hotel closer to the airport but farther away from the incident
Couldn’t get hold of anybody
That’s why we decided to find a safe place for us
So never got into the property
We are requesting for s refund of what we have paid for
When we finally checked into our room it was not cleaned. My daughter found toenails in the carpet in her room, there were dirty dishes in the cabinet, there was laminate coming off the cabinet, trim on the dish washer taped in place.
Day 3 lost power, went to the other side of the island to get a hot meal and the roads back were closed for 3 days. We slept in our rental car (5) adults.
Got back to our room cleaned out all the spoiled rotten food from the fridge, packed our bags and left a day early!
Thank god for friends of friends that opened their home in Kihei for our last 2 days on the island.
I am very sympathetic to the plight of the people of Maui, the communication from the authorities was nonexistent!
The condo was exactly what we had envisioned. Very comfortable for a family of 4 and included everything necessary for days at the beach. The staff at the property were extremely friendly and worked constantly to keep the entire property clean! We were stranded at this property during the early days of the terrible fire and the resort staff did everything they could to keep guests informed and as comfortable as possible.
Overall unit was fine but needed updating and bedroom in back was hot.
The unit is one of the best in the whole complex — incredible view, comfortable, we’ll appointed.
This was our second visit, and we had another wonderful stay. The air conditioning updates made the condo more comfortable temperature wise this time around. We utilized some of the beach gear they provided (boogie board) which made snorkeling with a 5 year old much easier! We will be back again! The view from the balcony never gets old!
This unit is filthy. Tons of roaches, dust and dirt. The online listing is not accurate of the unit at all. The unit and furniture are rundown. There is accumulated dirt everywhere. Mold in the shower. The unit has not been cleaned properly in a very long time, if ever. I would rate it negative if possible. Have video of the roaches crawling all over the kitchen and closet doors. Not enough words to express the disappointment and disgust.
We loved our ocean view and sunsets, and look forward to returning again and again.
It was awesome being so close to the pool. Our grandchildren loved the pool and beach toys. Thank you
This is our second stay in this condo. Perfect location, perfect amenities. We will stay here every trip to Maui.
We had a wonderful stay at this condo unit. Note- you will pay a daily resort fee for use of facilities (17/day). You have access to tennis and pickleball courts, pool, shuffleboard, putting green, and ocean access. There is a very small beach just off property (3 minute walk), if you want a beautiful wide beach expanse right outside the unit, this isn't the right place. However, there are ample lounges to relax on overlooking the ocean. The view from small balcony was lovely, The kitchen had everything we needed. The in unit laundry worked well. A cooler, beach chairs and beach towels were provided in unit. You can walk to grocery store, food trucks, convenience store, small restaurants, cinnamon roll place and coffee shops easily. This was a good option for our family of 5 (3 teens) with the spaces- MBR with bath, separate bedroom with queen bed, and loft with 2 twin beds. It's approximately an hour from the airport and we did feel like we did a lot of driving to the sites we planned on visiting. Very reasonable check out requirements- run the dishwasher, take out trash, towels gathered together. Would highly recommend and would stay again!
Very nice clean place. Beautiful view right on the ocean. Beautiful sunsets. Overall it’s a very beautiful place.
Beautiful place and great management! Recommend for any family looking to make forever memories in Maui!!
Fantastic updated unit with all the amenities you need. Very short walk to the beach and close to everything. Would definitely stay here again.
If you’re looking for an oceanfront condo that is modern, clean, and in a great location, then this is your place! The condo itself is spacious and well-equipped with all of your needs. It was sparkling clean when we arrived and it made us feel completely right at home. My family and I appreciated the air conditioner during the warm days/nights and also the washer/dryer which helped us pack light. Sunrises and sunsets from your private balcony or from the property's lawn are simply amazing.
Papakea Resort's grounds are beautiful and well maintained. There's also many activities to choose from -- swimming in one of the two lovely pools, shuffleboard, tennis/pickle ball, and even putting greens.
My family and I absolutely enjoyed our stay and can't wait to go back soon....for longer next time!
We have stayed at the Papakea for the past 20 years and always in the L building. The condo has everything you would need plus more. It is nicely furnished and very accommodating.
The AC is a big plus but if you want to enjoy the sounds of the ocean from the condo, Just prop open the front door and open the patio slider and a great breeze will keep you cool.
Maui is our favorite island and I am sure it will be yours too. We will definitely stay here again.
The unit was lovely. It was a beautiful location. But for the tragedy that occurred (wildfires) it would have been the perfect trup
Maui holds so many special memories for me and my family. And for the last 8 years Papakea is the place we land and love. You’re condo was one of the best decorated and so well thought through. Loved loved loved our stay. It holds such special memories for us, especially in light of all that your community is walking through now. You are close in our our hearts. ❤️🙏
We were there the week of the fires.
The property had the most amazin views and the grounds were kept meticulously. The condo was great and had everything we needed. The back bedrooms got a little stuffy, but they had fans you could push the a/c air from the main living area to the back. You could also open the front door and the lanai door and the winds just pushed through cooling everything.
We did lose power when we were there. The facility had light sticks on the stairs for you to get around and a few generators to charge your phones. We cooked on the bbqs that are propane.
We made due with a horrible situation and they couldnt have been more helpful since we couldnt go anywhere for a few days. Thankfully by the time our stay was ending we got out and were able to leave. Knowing the devistation of 6 miles away will never be the same is so sad and knowing they will never get to "go home" is even sadder. Praying for the people of Lahaina and Maui!
We had the best vacation in Maui! The rental really had everything we needed to enjoy our stay and I slept like a dream on the most comfortable bed there. The view overlooking Papakea and the ocean was beautiful.
We had an awesome time with close friends. There were a total of nine of us. The condo was decorated beautifully. You could tell that great attention was paid to the details. Check in and out was easy. Beautiful view of the sunset each evening.
This unit has an amazing beach view, and all the amenities we needed. Very clean and updated.
The condo is very clean, newly updated, ocean view from outside. AC in living and bedroom. The owner, Gregg is very nice and easy to get a hold of. We will for sure be back :)
Arrival and check-in was a breeze. Property is beautiful, and the condo itself is great, just as described! Unfortunately, we lost power and all communications due to the wildfires in Lahaina and surrounding area. The property staff did the best they could under the circumstances, and we are forever grateful for them. Thank you to the Host for communicating with us during this difficult stay, and offering his services to make us as comfortable as possible. We were fortunate to get out of the area after just a few days there, but our hearts and prayers are with Maui and it's people. We don't know if/when we will be able to come back to Maui, but if/when we do, I will definitely consider staying here again, hoping for a better overall experience. Mahalo!!
We truly appreciated all that Sue and her people did to make our visit a comfortable and enjoyable one. We felt welcomed from the very start by all the valuable information that was provided prior to our arrival. And the room was stocked with everything that we could possibly require that would make us feel at home and cared for. Otherwise, the area was wonderful with plenty of things to do right outside our door. We loved every minute!
We loved the property and location. Was just far enough out of all the hustle and bustle but close enough to get everywhere we wanted. The kids loved the pool and the house had all the amenities needed. We grilled several nights at the pool BBQs which was a happy surprise for us.
We had a wonderful stay in this condo. We would highly recommend it to family and friends and would stay there again if we return to Maui.
We had a wonderful stay!
1. The condo is beautiful and right on the water.
2. The location is perfect. Food and grocery right next door
3. Pools, hot tubs, grills. The facility is wonderful.
We had a great time with our children and grandson . Amazing ocean views from lanai and master bedroom. Great condo with lots of amenities, beach chairs, umbrella and snorkeling gears are a big plus.
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.
This unit was perfect for our family stay. We were on vacation with our adult children and their partners. The three bed, three bath layout gave each couple plenty of personal space while allowing us to enjoy time together as well. The view from our balcony was incredible. Many people from our travel group came to our unit specifically to see it.
Janet was easy to work with. She was flexible when we needed to make a change to our departure date and she clearly communicated everything we needed to enjoy our stay.
The end of our stay coincided with the devastating fire in Lahaina. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Maui.
We came across the property while looking to extend our stay in Maui.
It is exactly as described and shown in the photos.
The unit is well equipped with everthing you need to be comfortable and safe.
We were only here for 4 days, but quickly found our way around the property. The location of the resort is convenient and easily accessible for everything on the island.
Communication with Bob was great, and he seems genuinely concerned that our stay was enjoyable.
We highly recommend this unit to anyone interested in a comfortable and relaxing stay.
Clean and quiet area. Good views of the ocean from the balcony.
Sondra’s place is beautiful, tasteful island decor, comfy bed and a fully stocked kitchen.
We had everything we needed for the beach and my granddaughter went snorkeling right in front of our apartment.
Sondra quickly responded to any questions I had, while there.
I am grateful to have visited Lahaina in the days before the devastating tragedy there, and I am deeply saddened by the loss of such a special spot.
We very much enjoyed our stay at this condo. The condo was very clean and well sucked, the grounds were beautiful and the location was perfect. We hope to return again!
This was my second time staying in Dee’s oceanfront unit and it truly is a piece of paradise . The unit has just about everything one would need . The kitchen has every cupboard and drawer labeled for easy access . Watched sunsets every night from the lanai and bbq whole mug long with others . I will return to this unit in the future as it’s my favorite . There
Are lots of restaurants in whalers village and Napili and Kapalua are two of Mauis most beautiful beaches . thank you Dee. MAUI STAY STEONG ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Our family getaway was just what we needed. Serene views and slow days. We really appreciated all of the beach things, especially the snorkeling gear.
This was the perfect spot for our family. Beach, snorkeling, pool, bbq and a/c.
L401 was fantastic! Beautiful view, watched sea turtles all morning.
Great unit with everything you need to cook as desired, very short walk to uncrowded beach with snorkeling just off shore.
Might not be the newest facility but top notch accommodations. Food truck park, grocery store and restaurants within walking distance.
Better jump on this unit, second bedroom is in the loft leaving plenty of privacy on first floor
Just can't say enough about our stay
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!
Nice place! Great time
The amenities on the property was great. There was a lot to do in a beautiful setting. There were things to do for all ages The staff was very friendly.
The location was perfect for what we wanted to do.
We enjoyed our stay! The keyless entry system is wonderful - our teenage daughters could come and go as they pleased without having to worry about a key.
Everything as described. Little notes by the outlets/ceiling fan switches/inside kitchen cabinets were very helpful. Resort is great! 2 pools, tons of gas grills (we used them often!), can walk right next door if you want a sand beach. Stort drive to Front Street. Owners left many suggestions (dining, shopping, etc) and we used almost every one and all were great. We use VRBO alot, and this was one of our best stays!
This condo is an amazing location and the owner was very communicative in booking questions. I would stay here again. Condo is very nice. Only thing that could make it better would be AC, but the fans do a good job. It was never too hot.
This was a family trip that continued to grow!We had a group of 17 people, ages ranging from 2+ to grandparents. We coordinated 3 different condos, I must say this condo was by far the BEST! Starting with great communication by the owner, right down to the amenities. There were plenty of condo kitchen supplies to all the beach essentials necessary - available for use. No need to rent snorkeling gear, boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrellas…I can go on and on!
This is a must rent condo! We will be returning!
Tracey and family!
Our stay was amazing. The location was excellent, close to amazing beaches, restaurants, and the view was AMAZING! The owner was incredible, checking on us, especially when the fires started. She even tried to find us alternate accommodations when we had to be evacuated from front street.
The pictures do not do this property justice. It was beautiful and the staff at this resort are so very kind. Lots to do nearby and got to see some huge turtle
The property was well stocked and provided an excellent base for our Maui vacation. The pool was great and the view from the balcony was amazing. The condo was in good condition and clean. Beach equipment was great for us. Short walk to restaurants and shops. Amazing beaches for snorkeling and boogie boarding are just up the road.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Papakea. The unit presents well, is easy to get in and out of, and located somewhat near many of the things we did on our trip. It's a bit of a trip up country, most everything else is within 20 minutes. Cool food truck park is a five minute walk away. Would stay again!
We loved our stay in Maui. Everything we needed to have fun on the beach, at the tennis courts and on the putting green were all provided. Rachel was wonderful to work with and very responsive when things arose that needed attention. The view was stunning. We cannot not wait to go back.
The property is fantastic. Gorgeous views of the ocean and Molokai. Property is very clean.
Your condo was perfect for our stay. The decor and comfort were great and the view was spectacular.
This condo is great! We love the location. The property was perfect for our family of 3. The only thing i wish we had was enough toilet paper to last our entire stay and had baggies and aluminum foil maybe cling wrap. I have stayed at many vrbo houses and condos and never had to purchase these items. I am sure if i asked for more tp they would have brought it to us, but i and maybe most people would not want to bother the host for this.
Second time we’ve been to this resort. First, for our babymoon and now as a family of three. Couldn’t have asked for a better spot! Beautiful views, quiet and very conveniently located. The unit was well stocked, clean and very comfortable.
Beautiful property, especially like the landscaping!
Very clean with AC and comfortable beds. Awesome views. 2 minute walk to a sand beach. Close to Lahaina and many other beaches.
Our family of 7 (3 adults, 4 children ages 4-11yrs) enjoyed our stay here. The kids loved the sand toys and the closeness of the beach and pool. The kitchen was well stocked including food storage bags, and the property manager was very responsive. Make sure to keep all food sealed and put away as much as possible. There were small ants on the counters and in the bathroom in the loft, which is inevitable in Hawaii. The view from the balcony was very serene. The condo was busy and some loud noises at night could be heard from the other condo complex (not the Papakea). The actual condo was quiet.
The grounds are very pretty and well maintained. We would have given five stars but the cockroach infestation was to much for me.
The property was in a wonderful location and the view was exceptional from our unit. The carpet in the bedrooms was extremely dirty and needs replaced. The bathroom stool in the master worked only part time. The air conditioner leaked onto the lanai and puddled the entire time so it was hard not to track it in. We loved the resort area and the pool area was great.
We prefer the upper north shore and this unit and the Papakea resort were wonderful. The view, access to both ocean and pool, lounge chairs, grocery store and all our favorite shopping and dining places was perfect! The unit was so comfortable with everything we could have possibly needed. The owners were in communication and were dedicated to making our stay a great one! We will return! Aloha.
Great stay! Will be back!
We LOVED this condo and the location in Lahina. Close to so many fun activities and had the best vacation with a large family sharing a space that was so clean and easy to accommodate everyone’s needs. Thank you so much! Wonderful memories here. We will be back!!!!
Brock and Allison H.
Test sas amazing and perfect.
This spot was great and very conveniently located. The only thing that could have made it better is having a gym... that part was a downside, for sure.
Clean house and perfect location. We made memories and had the best time! Thank you Carol💕
Had an amazing trip. The condo was just what we needed. Conveniently located. Owner was great with communication
We were looking for a 9 day escape. This location was perfect. Access to a variety of foods, (smaller supermarket just across the street) excursions were reasonably close, very well maintained resort. Not too big, not too small. Just right. The road to Hona starts about an hour away, so travel for that experience will take a full day to get it all. Highly recommend the local food trucks (about 10 options) and the pizza place just across the road. Owners were great. They responded when I asked questions and provided a lengthy list of ideas to do while we were here. Condo was well appointed and clean. Niece / nephew had a great time here. Could not ask for anything more
Can’t say enough good things about this property. A great location and beautiful waterfront view. The property itself is updated, clean and fully stocked with all of our needs for the week. The staff is so friendly and there is plenty to do if you want to hang around the property. We would highly recommend it to anyone who is coming to Maui for vacation. Thank you!!
Beautiful oceanfront condo. You can just sit in the lanai and watch the sunset and hear the waves. Close to everything. Condo is very nice, clean, very well stocked and so many extras. The condo has great modern updates. Just bring your swimsuits! Resort is well maintained, has many amenities, and activities. Checking in/out was a breeze. We would definitely stay at this condo again.
This condo was perfect for the two of us. Everything we could have possibly needed was supplied (except laundry detergent which we picked up at Times Market). We appreciated having an ice maker, and also the large bathroom counter with 2 sinks. The location is perfect; walking distance to the market, various restaurants, food trucks, and a short drive to Kaanapali and Lahaina. We hope to stay here again.
Enjoyed the property, surrounding attractions and restaurants.
This beautiful condo had everything we needed for our stay for my husband and I and our two adult children. We had our own bedrooms, bathrooms, a beautiful view. We saw dolphins and turtles from our view on the balcony. The kitchen was well-equipped. There were beach towels and beach chairs, a small cooler. The owners were great communicators. We would definitely stay here again!
This was a beautiful location to stay in Maui, near plenty of activities, many that were within walking distance. The check-in and check-out process were easy because all the information was sent in advance. The host was responsive with any questions and sent additional information that helped my partner and I find more activities and food in the area. The condo was clean and had everything that we needed for our 6 day stay. Thank you for helping to make our first visit to Maui so wonderful, we hope to visit again in the future!
The property was well maintained and the unit my family stayed in was clean. The balcony view was beautiful and the option of A/C was good to have when needed.
We loved this place! Beautiful view ! You can play some mini golf ⛳️ and swim or even relax in the hot tub ! We use the TV at night and it didn’t have cable if that was cable it super basic not an issue for us but we did hear people complaining about wanting to watch a game… Had an odd experience with the people who stayed next door we over herd them talking about our door code because they stayed their before so we alerted the front desk and they contacted the mgr and in less then 20 minutes we had a locksmith knocking on our door to reset the code!! It was kind of a bummer with the people next door they smoked cigarettes which isn’t allowed your only allowed to smoke in the parking lot they have a map where you can if you do. We loved the ABC store that was and hop and skip away they have good breakfast doughnuts and other food!! This place is a win win.
We loved our stay at Papakea resort. Our view was incredible and the resort was quiet, relaxed and the perfect location. Our place was clean and just the right size for our family of four. We will definitely be back :)
Beautiful views from this condo! Very helpful to find a place that could fit 7 of us. Great location. Owner was very responsive to my messages both before and during our stay.
The property was perfect for our family! Our kids are 17,18,22 and 22 and they each had their own bed without someone having to sleep on a sofa bed. This is very difficult to find and we were happy to have found it! The rooms were exactly what we needed and the beds were all comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked and the beach chairs and wagon etc were an added bonus! The A/C worked well, It was actually too cold at times on the main level and we turned it warner. The upstairs bedroom was too warm with the door shut so we left it open and the temperature was cool enough for us. The resort grounds were well kept and the staff were very nice and friendly. We will definitely refer friends to this property and will stay again if we return to Maui!
We had a good time. Everything was as described. Place was clean and neat. Our family had a great time and would come back again next time.
Room was even better then pictured! Was super clean and had everything we needed. View was perfect! We stay at Papakea everytime we bring family and love it!
The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was very happy with the location.
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
We enjoyed our stay at Papakea. There were 6 of us and the entire family was comfortable. The views and proximity to the beach was amazing. We loved the convenience of parking and we enjoyed the community. The food truck park was a great bonus.
Great Location, easy check-in, beautiful property, grounds are very well maintained. Many extra amenities provided by owner, including pool towels, and igloo cooler. Only one stove burner working, but the ice maker kept up with us!
Quite place, meets all my expectations.
The resort is gorgeous! We've stayed here before and never been disappointed. This unit was exactly as listed and had so many extras for families to utilize and enjoy! We appreciated the beach chairs, towels amd cooler for the beach trips! Will definitely be back asap again!
We loved this place great view
The condo was central to all of the activities that we planned. This one bedroom was just right for my wife and I. Ray has it fully equipped with everything that you need. It was our home away from home as my wife likes to say.
Beautiful condo! We really enjoyed our week staying at this lovely property. Thank you to Carol, for the awesome communication and for allowing us to have the most perfect week of vacation.
so much to love about this condo, but some highlights: (1) great view from the lanai (2) extremely comfortable "home base" vibes from adventures around Maui (3) great location in West Maui. Will definitely come back!
The Condo is exactly as described!! The sunsets from the balcony were stunning!! I would highly recommend. Dawn was great working with me on all the details.
This rental home was an absolute dream! Thank you Patty and Lou for sharing your slice of paradise with us. Everything was perfect from the moment we booked to the moment we checked out. Nothing will ever top the daily beautiful view we had right from the balcony! The place was better than we expected and made our first trip so enjoyable and memorable. The rental home had everything we needed to experience the beauty of Maui and it was so conveniently close and within walking distance to stores and restaurants. Our family of 4 absolutely love this place and we definitely plan to be back! Mahalo!
This condo was exactly as pictured. Very clean, close to restaurants, very nice resort that the kids loved. We especially loved that this condo was stocked with everything we needed for the beach.
This is a gem of a property on Maui. Listed at a very reasonable rate, the place has it all - clean apartment, efficient elevator, comfortable beds, a well stocked kitchen, good washer and dryer.
The decor is very nice. Our kids loved the loft bedroom! And the lanai (balcony) is the best part of all. Sea breezes cooling us the whole time, great view of the pool and the putting green, the ocean and Molokai island beyond. Since the balcony is northwest facing, it doesn't get the afternoon sun which is an added bonus. We didn't use the AC after our first day on a July vacation.
Papakea is a well maintained, safe and fun place. We did not do any of the activities though. Times Supermarket and other eateries are within walking distance. Beach access is from the side of the property, but the sea is a little rough there. Best drive to Kaaanapali 10 minutes away.
Beth was awesome as an host! From coordinating with the Papkea front desk, to pointing us to where in the kitchen certain utensils were stored, she did not let us have any issues. Wholeheartedly recommend this place to everyone!
My husband and I had an amazing time in Kaanapali. The accommodations were beautiful and in the perfect location. We were able to watch dolphins from the Lanai, which was amazing. Our room wasn’t ready until about 45 minutes after our check in time, but that wasn’t a big deal. We had a great time overall. Hopefully we will be back again!
Was just like the pictures. Ocean is right there and really couldn’t get much close without being in it.
Place has everything needed. Clean and comfortable.
Exactly as described! Nothing beats waking up to that view and just steps away is some great snorkeling. Perfect location and within walking distance to some amazing food spots. Would highly recommend!
We loved this place. Great location with beautiful view. Kids had fun running in the grass outside and looking at the fish pond. It was a great location right next to the pool and the mini golf course. Will definitely stay here again!
The condo was perfect for our family of five. The furnishings were great and the beach umbrellas, chairs and cooler came in handy at the beach. AC worked great and kept things cool at night. It would have been warm without it. The property is beautiful, well maintained and they seemed to have events for the guests each day. We would definitely stay here again.
This was an amazing oceanfront condo in one of the best locations in Maui! It is well maintained and equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Janet was super friendly, a pleasure to work with and answered any questions we had during our stay. I would highly recommend for any family looking for a great condo, property and beautiful sunsets. This was our favorite family vacation, and we will definitely be coming back! Thank you, Janet! Mahalo for everything!
This property was wonderful! We love Papakea and this unit was great. We loved watching the ocean from the porch and the unit was well stocked with gamees, movies, beach items, etc. We would definately stay here again!
