!! See bottom of description to see why we did second renovation, it may be important to your search to learn what we learned !!

This is a beautiful 2011 renovated three bedroom (one is a large loft), two bath with vaulted ceilings on the 4th floor at the fantastic Papakea Resort! Our Condo was just remodeled in August 2011 by well known high end Builder/Designer Mike Harvey. You will not believe how great it turned out as the pictures do not do this unit justice. The kitchen is decked out with “Exotic African Mahogany” cabinets accented with all Stainless Steel Appliances and Gorgeous Granite counter tops. The master bedroom has been furnished with the same high end furniture used in the top hotels in Kaanapali Beach. Imagine waking up in the morning and looking out your bedroom window and seeing a serene coy pond, lush green lawns with putting green, with the back drop of a whale filled turquoise ocean, nothing closer to heaven! The second bedroom has been outfitted with a Queen Canopy Bed with the same high end furniture (the whole unit has these great furnishings). The third bedroom, the loft, stands at top of a classic spiral stair case. It is a giant space so it has both a queen bed and two twin beds and still plenty of room to spare. We also added a sleeper sofa in the family room just in case you need to add two more people to your party allowing up to 10 people.

Second renovation included state of the art mini-split multi-zoned A/C. The only A/C you should demand from your rental. Each room has its own register and it can actually pull the humidity out of the room and cool, VERY FAST! No more waiting all day just to get the room 2 degrees cooler! We also put in wood floors in the bedrooms and loft (SOME PICTURES STILL HAVE OLD CARPETING IN THEM). See below for reasons, they are important.

State of the art KEYLESS Entry system. Now you can walk on the beach, swim, play and not have to carry an annoying key or key card with you. Your whole party will have access and you can not forget your key inside.

Papakea resort is a beautifully landscaped, low-rise complex of 4 story buildings on 13 acres at north end of Kaanapali Beach. It Includes 2 swimming pools, 12 barbecues, 2 spa's, 2 shuffleboards, 3 lighted tennis courts, 2 putting greens, and many more Extras!!! This condo is not only perfect for your family vacation but also great for family reunions, weddings, etc. You will not find this any where else on Maui!!! Great deal!!

To some this second renovation may not seem like much, but in Hawaii, these costs were very significant. In fact the cost of just these two items on this second renovation was more than 25% of the first renovation’s cost!

The new A/C was because our past guest were given a chance to tell us their top recommendations for our units. The most common (two) was the A/C. The issue, these wall units do not remove the humidity very well, take many hours to cool, and then only seem to cool a couple of degrees. They also leak a lot of water because the water they take out of the air, they put into a pan on the bottom of the A/C expecting evaporation to remove (which does not), which has its own set of issues. After installing and using the new units, we can say that nobody should ever have the other style or even no A/C. We use them very little ourselves, but sometimes removing the humidity from the air makes a world of difference in comfort. And to do it, you only need to run the A/C in that one room for a short amount of time, not all day!

As for the carpets, well that was the second most recommendation. Although we all love carpets, there are two issues that came up, one is they look dirty too easily and make the place look not as nice, second is the environment is already very warm, and it is nicer to have a cooler feeling under your feet. Not to mention that the wood floors are just so much richer looking.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1983

About the owner: This condo has been in our family for almost 30 years. Our father purchased the unit and lived in Papakea way back when because he had the vision to see this resort becoming one of the most desired locations on Maui. We have been coming to visit Hawaii for the last 20+years and consider Maui to be a home-away-from-home. Can you think of a better place to spend your time??

Why the Owner Chose Papakea Resort:
We inherited the properties and rather than sell them we felt it was better to keep them for rental so others could enjoy what we have been experiencing for the last 20 years.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We love this condo!! We really enjoy hanging out with our teenage girls on the beach, This is a great location because of it's easy access to restaurants, evening BBQ's at the pool, whale watching, boating , snorkling at Kapalua Bay, golfing,shopping...and sooo much more!!. And now that it has been remodeled this spot is 'the best of the best'!!!
