First of all, do NOT stay in Unit L-202. That was what ruined our 11 night stay! It is in very poor condition, especially all the cabinets and appliances. It is ocean front, but definitely not worth the price. Look everything over BEFORE you unpack and put your groceries away! That was our mistake! Management was responsive to our complaints, but this two-bedroom unit is not up to Aston standards, let alone ours. We booked online through Aston website, and everything sounded great. It wasn't. We found out Aston only manages about a third of the units, with others being rented privately or through other sources. Aston should not be renting this unit out to anyone until the owner does a complete upgrade!
The property itself is very attractive, nice pools and gardens, and is well-maintained. However be alert to the fact that there is no beach at this property; you have to walk down several yards to get to a swimming beach area. Parking is very difficult, and poorly lit at night. There is a grocery across the street, and an ABC close by. There is a restaurant at the condo property next to Papakea.
I love Hawaii, I love Maui. But I like to stay in nicely furnished, well-equipped and properly functioning accommodations. I will think twice before going back to Papakea.
