This oceanfront condo has one of the most spectacular views you will experience in a lifetime! It is western exposure looking straight at the island of Molakai, with Lanai'i just to the south too. You are just a few dozen feet from the ocean (you won't find anything closer than this) and can enjoy the sound of the surf and watch the crashing waves from the condo's lanai. The condo has been recently remodeled with beautiful granite countertops and tile floors. It's convenient to walking to the Kaanapali beach walk and beautfiful sandy beaches. You can't beat this condo for your Maui vacation experience!
We had the most perfect time in Maui on our Honeymoon while staying at Papa Kea! The views were amazing from sunrise to sunset and the weather was fantastic for us the entire week. It was quite warm when we were there but having air conditioning in the condo was AWESOME! The full size kitchen with all the necessary supplies was really nice so we could get food from Safeway or Costco and make a meal at the condo if we wanted! We had breakfast and coffee on the Lanai every morning.
The location couldn’t have been better for th activities we wanted to do also! It is only 10 minutes from Lahaina and only about 5 minutes from Whalers Village which is also great to eat dinner or shop around. There are several hotels down the beach that we would walk to after coffee and in the evenings for dinner or even just dessert.
We absolutely enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay on Maui! It would be great for a small family, friends or honeymooners like us! We can’t wait to go back :)
This unit is awesome!! Great price for an oceanfront rental. It is only a walking distance to the beach. The unit was clean and updated and resort was peaceful and quiet. We enjoyed our stay. I highly recommend this unit to everyone.
We booked this condo after researching for weeks. The reviews were good, the pictures were terrific and the owner, Rachelle, was extremely responsive and answered all my questions. The condo was very clean and had everything we needed - a fully stocked kitchen, plenty of bath and beach towels, beach umbrella and chairs, cooler and even snorkel equipment. The A/C worked great and it was great to have a dishwasher to help with clean up. Papakea has two pools that kept us busy in the late afternoon but we mostly enjoyed the beach which is only a few steps away. We walked to the Times Supermarket across the street and our favorite place to eat was the teppanyaki place just outside of the gate. I highly recommend this condo. I hope to return to Maui one day and will definitely reach out to Rachelle. I recommend that you do too.
Absolutely beautiful inside and out! This condo location is a little piece of heaven in Maui! The views from the lanai are spectacular--can see 2 of the other islands, watched the sunset every night, saw a dolphin swim by in the morning and turtles throughout the day. Fell asleep at night listening to waves crash outside our window. I was a little worried about the lack of beach in front due to the erosion, but it was literally next door! I've stayed "on the beach" in other places where I had to walk further to get there than I did from this condo!
The unit was very well stocked with all of the "toys": beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, snorkel gear & boogie boards! The towels were thick and new, and I loved having the washer and dryer in the unit. The location of Papakea was very convenient to restaurants and groceries, and the kids loved the shuffleboard and putting green when we needed a break from the sun.
The owners were very easy to work with, answered all of our questions and provided lots of information about the area before we even arrived. If we ever get back to Maui we will definitely be staying here again!
We visited Maui for the first time as a family and booked this 3rd floor ocean front Papakea condo and it did not disappoint! The condo was exactly as described. It was clean and had all the amenities we could want (including some beach chairs and boogie boards!). We traveled with our 8 and 11 year old daughters and this place was perfect! The view from the balcony is incredible. The sunsets were a highlight of our day and a perfect entertainment while we enjoyed home-cooked meals. The resort is pretty quiet and the pool was fun for all. We visited several parts of the island very easily and walked to the grocery store and other local shops almost every day. The owner was very personable, responsive and easy to work with. We'd stay here again for sure!
This was our third stay in this condo and it was the best ever after a recent remodel of the kitchen, bathrooms and new tile flooring. The grounds at Papakea are beautifully maintained and the location couldn't be better with a grocery store, bars, restaurants and our favorite ABC store all within short walking distance. The condo is on the third floor looking directly at the ocean and the islands of Lanai and Molokai. You won't get any better pictures of the sunset than you do from the lanai.
