You've found the PERFECT place for honeymoons, anniversaries, family reunions and memorable vacations. Our premium oceanfront condo (#L-407)offers a million-dollar view in a private and romantic setting and a front row seat to all the action during whale-watching season.
The Papakea Oceanfront Resort, a hidden Hawaiian gem, is a tropical oasis situated on 13 sprawling acres of lush & beautifully manicured grounds in upscale West Maui with stunning views of Lanai and Molokai Islands. The Papakea is in the quiet neighborhood of Honokawai. It's conveniently located between the Kaanapali and Kapalua world-class golf resorts and is only minutes from Lahaina's shopping, restaurants, and nightlife.
Our condo, in the 'L' building, is only 50 steps from the water's edge, so close you can hear the surf inside! Directly in front of our building is direct access to world-famous Kaanapali Beach. To the south you can stroll miles along the white, sandy beach toward Black Rock, stopping along the way for a swim or some awesome snorkeling.
Our lanai faces the ocean directly and provides unobstructed 180 degree views of gorgeous morning sunrises, enchanting daytime rainbows over the ocean, spectacular nightly sunsets, and incredible shows during whale watching season. (For a Virtual Tour of this unit, visit our website link below.)
Our comfortable home-away-from-home includes remodeled kitchen & bath, upgraded tile flooring, designer paint colors, island-style furnishings and flat-screen TV's. Sleeps four to five with a king-size bed in the master, a queen-size bed in the spacious and private loft, a queen-size sofa sleeper in the living room, and one bathroom. We're on the top/4th floor and have soaring 18' cathedral ceilings lending an open and airy feeling. We don't have central air but do have one window a/c unit. Personally we rarely use it because with windows and lanai door open, you'll catch fantastic trade-wind breezes blowing through the unit. Ceiling fans also in all rooms.
Parking and WIFI are FREE. Hawaii Tax ID #W30192078-01.

About the owner: I fell in love with Maui on my first visit in 1989. Jim and I were married on the grounds of the Papakea in 1997. In 2002, we had the opportunity to purchase this oceanfront, top floor unit that looks down on the exact spot we tied the knot! The Papakea has always been very special to us and we love sharing it with family, friends, and fellow travelers who want to enjoy a slice of paradise, if only for a while!
Why the Owner Chose Papakea Resort: The Papakea is on the west side of the island right on the West Maui Channel where the humpback whales make their annual migration. Our lanai is a front row seat to all the action! The islands of Lanai and Molokai, across the channel, offer stunning views in the daytime and gorgeous sunsets every night. And, with the West Maui mountains directly behind the Papakea, we always have wonderful breezes and frequent rainbows, after brief afternoon showers. It's enchanting!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: The Papakea offers all the amenities you'd expect at a resort but maintains a relaxed and authentic Hawaiian feel where guests can feel at home. We LOVE using the grills and enjoying a sunset dinner from our own lanai! Although Papakea has it's own beach area, it's also conveniently located to famous beaches such as Kapalua Bay, Napili Bay, and Dig-Me Beach. Everything you need is close by...shopping, dining, golf, excursions, you name it!
