Papakea Resort condo description

Our fully remodeled condo at Papakea Resort is on 13 acres of expansive and lush lawns and gardens with the view of crystal blue Pacific Ocean from our lanai, living-dining room and kitchen.

This kitchen is NOT kitchenette but a fully equipped kitchen with in-condo washer/dryer. You can pack light and save on baggage fee.

The unit is also fully furnished with stove, microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal and cooking utensils.

You will have your own a private furnished balcony/lanai to relax by yourself or with family and friends and enjoy the spectacular Pacific Ocean, lush putting greens and swaying palm trees.

Our condo is air-conditioned and has two fans (one in living room and one bedroom). You will enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi in the unit and throughout the resort. You can take your iPad to the Cabana and enjoy the amazing sunset from any one of two cabanas while sipping your Mai Tai.

Maui Sunset will amaze you. It is unlike any other place. Please see two of the last photos. But it does vary with the season. What don’t change are the colorful rainbows - right from our lanai, almost every day. Welcome to paradise.

Just make a left by the cabana and walk miles of sandy beaches all the way to Whaler’s village and beyond. After having your breakfast or lunch in one of the many beautiful restaurants along the way, if you feel too tired to walk back, hop on a bus that costs only a dollar and it will drop you off right in front of Papakea Resort.

This Papakea Resort is close to nearby Kaanapali and Kapalua resort areas with famous Kaanapali, Napilli and Flamingo beaches, championship golf courses, fine shops and restaurants. Install free “Maui Dining” app on your iPhone/iPad for the latest offers from world famous restaurants.

Our Papakea Resort includes two swimming pools, two jet spas, lighted tennis courts, two 12-hole putting greens, and free fitness classes and activities including swimmer-size and Yoga classes. There are many picnic and barbecue areas so you don't have to wait if you want to barbeque. Jump in the pool or hot tub while the food is cooking.

And eat right there in our two poolside cabanas or bring the food inside for intimate dinners. Also enjoy two 12 hole putting greens and three tennis courts. We have some putters in the unit and you can get a tennis racket from the front desk.

You will love the direct ocean views from lanai and dining room. You will also see the reflection of ocean and palm trees in the full wall mirror from the kitchen. Please look at various photos.

Our unit is in Building E on the second floor just yards away from the ocean - close enough to let the sounds of ocean waves lull you to sleep without having to turn on the AC in the unit. Please see 2nd photo with Building E on left.

This unit faces NORTH and so the sun does not beat on you all day like it does in buildings facing West or South. It is one of only 2 buildings at this resort that face NORTH.

Keeping warm in Maui is not the problem. Keeping cool or using your lanai during the day can be a challenge in buildings that do not face north.

This unit does have brand new AC and two fans (one in living room and one in bedroom). It has been completely remodeled. Look at the photos of the single piece India gold granite countertops and self-closing cabinets in the kitchen and bath room and you will agree that this is gorgeous unit.

The unit has flat screen TVs in both living room and bedroom. There is a Blue Ray Player.

And yes, it has hair dryer.

The closet of this unit was remodeled in 2014 with California closet to double the closet space for your clothes and luggage out of sight.

And there is plenty of additional storage space in the dresser and two end tables and hallway closets.

The couch is a pull out queen sofa bed. However, for a very nominal cost, we can arrange a blow up bed if someone in your party of two or more does not want to use or share queen sofa bed.

We did not forget small things like a tea kettle, tea strainer, coffee maker, hair dryers, beer bottle and wine openers, BBQ utensils, mortars and pestles, etc. small things that will make you feel at home.

If you have toddlers, you will love the bath tub in our unit, one of the very few units that have a bath tub with shower. And if you need a crib, we can arrange it for a very nominal cost.

Walk to shopping, grocery store, restaurants and miles of world famous Kaanapali beach without ever having to get into your car.

And the public bus stops directly in front of the resort every hour and it costs just a $1 for a ride.

And finally let me say this. It is OK for you to take what I have to say about this unit with a grain of salt. So what I suggest is that you please read all the reviews. These FIVE STARS reviews written by our guests should give you an objective view of this unit and our dealings with our guests.

About my rates. I believe my rates are competitive for similar units and my bookings give you an indication of my competitive rates.

Please also note that rates for longer stays are generally lower than listed rates here. So ask me rates for longer stays.

Thanks for visiting my vrbo site 434898. I look forward to your inquiry.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: An engineer in the electronics industry with long work history at Intel and Boeing and now a consultant for the last two decades ( and sheep farmer-a wonderful combination. Too young to retire and too old to work 9 to 5. So consulting and raising sheep (starting with four and now 100 in just 3 years) seems like a good way to keep mentally and physically fit. Love for yoga and meditation also helps. And frequent visits this Condo in Maui makes me feel really blessed. Hope you love this place as much we do and be one of our frequent guests to enjoy this paradise, we call Maui- voted the best island in the world (yes few times in the last decade).

              Why the Owner Chose Papakea Resort:
              Even though we have lived in the beautiful Northwest (Seattle and now in Portland) for over 30 years now, you like to get away from the rain and cold sometimes. During my first visit ever to Maui in June 2011, I fell in love with Maui. After looking at all the options we have in Maui, I found Papakea to offer everything I was looking for, 2nd floor unit facing north with mesmerizing ocean views and palm trees.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              So close to the ocen with such a great ocean view from kitchen, dining, living and lanai. The view was definitely the clincher for me. You sit in your living room or lanai and be enchanted with the beaurty of ocean and swaying palm trees. The sky is different every time you look out
