Papakea Resort condo description

Unit J-104 at Papakea is a great ground-floor condo with two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. It's completely updated with new carpeting, comfortable furnishings, lots of custom touches, and a wonderful tropical interior decor!
There is a new ceramic-tile floor in the hall, kitchen, and both baths. The bedrooms and living areas feature brand new carpeting. The back bedroom is furnished with two twin beds, lamps, nightstands, a large dresser, and a huge closet. The master bedroom faces the ocean and the koi ponds, and is furnished with a king-size bed, two nightstands, lamps, a large dresser, cable TV with remote, and a large closet. It has a dreamy ocean and Molokai mountain view from the bed!
Both the bathrooms have a vanity area that's separate from the toilet and shower/bath area, with a door between them.

Both the master bedroom and the living areas face the ocean, and have a lovely view across the koi ponds and the garden to the ocean and the mountains of Molokai in the distance. The garden view is very lush and tropical -- with beautiful landscaping and extensive water features of the koi ponds.
The living room has easy chairs, a queen-size sleeper sofa, cable TV, and a VCR -- as well as dining for four and a dining bar.
The lanai steps right out to the serene and quiet koi ponds and a large grassy area. There is no pathway in front of the lanai -- just a huge grassy expanse; so it has very light traffic and is very private. You'll be buffered from pool noise by the expanse of grass and the extensive, meandering koi ponds. The sweet sounds of the waterfalls and fountains of the koi pond provide wonderful foreground music, with the booming sounds of the surf serving as calming background music.
Just walk right outside the door to the hot tubs, pools, and the wonderful ocean.

Take a book -- and relax and enjoy everything!
The condo is fully furnished with everything you'll need for even long-term stays. The full kitchen includes a dishwasher, a new oven/range, a washer/dryer, microwave, blender, and toaster. Additional amenities include air-conditioning, hairdryers in both baths, and an iron and ironing board. I also provide beach towels, a cooler, beach toys, and beach chairs as extras -- to make your stay that much more relaxing and easy. As I live right here on Maui's west side, you can call on me for anything you might need; and I can generally supply it right away.
We are constantly updating the condo, and refreshing the furnishings and equipment. I work really hard to ensure that the condo is fully and thoughtfully furnished. But you are the best gauges of this; so I welcome your feedback!
As you might know, the Papakea Resort is a very gracious tropical resort set on 13 oceanfront acres.

We have three condos there -- we love it that much! It offers wonderful amenities including two pools, two spas, two saunas, and beach access with easy swimming and snorkeling right there.
Many of my guests enjoy the water aerobics classes held every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in the Molokai pool. They just started offering beachfront yoga sessions on Tuesday and Thursday too! Others enjoy tennis, shuffleboard, or honing their skills on one of the two 18-hole, manicured putting greens.
The grounds are very handsome -- with bamboo groves and tropical plants and flowers in abundance. And with wonderful walkways meandering through extensive koi ponds that feature the soothing sounds of waterfalls and water fountains.

          The Bear getting ready to dive Molokini Crater off the Maui coast! 05/21/2008

          VRBO Bear stayed here:

          This Papakea Resort condo is perfectly located to take in all the sites and activities of the west coast of Maui. Papakea is an older but beautifully maintained resort just minutes north of the famous town of Lahaina. The condo features a pool and putting green just steps away from the patio door. Some of the best snorkeling on the coast is just a few yards further.

          The condo is decorated in the traditional Hawaiian manner with wicker furniture. The master bedroom has lots of windows allowing beautiful views of the lush gardens and pools (with koi), putting greens, swimming pool, and Molokai in the distance. The kitchen is fully furnished, and the counter and bar stools make a great desk to connect your laptop to the free WiFi...that is, if you want to keep up with the world offshore!

          The owners of this condo own several other similar Papakea Resort condos so you can easily arrange for a family or other large group reunion through them. As an added bonus, they own Hawaii Rafting, one of the best West Maui dive shops with trips to Lanai, a largely unexplored island. Guests of theirs get discounts on dives! A Bear could get used to living and diving in Maui.
