Thanks so much!!
"Sometimes you don't realize what you have or how wonderful your trip was until you are back, looking at all the pictures and reliving the great time you had! Now as I'm planning our family summer vacation (unfortunately not back here and to Maui!) I realized how great this experience was and had to write! One of the best parts was all the great information we received BEFORE we came. It was so helpful,even though we've been to Maui before, to have this help with our plans for things to do & see, restaurants, shopping, what was provided there in the condo that I didn't have to pack. We've rented homes before various places but this was the most helpful! The condo was a perfect home for our stay. It had everything we needed for the beach, or for cooking or grilling our meals. There was nothing better than breakfast on the lanai! Great way to start every day! My 2 kids loved their space in the loft for down time & frankly so did we! Everything was clean inside & out,on the grounds, & at the pool area. We really felt the Aloha Spirit in this home & will be back! Again thanks for sharing!"

"We just returned from Papakea a short while ago, and are already missing our morning coffees on the lanai. The unit was everything we expected and more. Loved the views, the comfy bed, the well stocked kitchen, beach chairs, and very friendly staff. We knew coming here there was no beach, so we would pack a lunch and explored all the beaches in the area. It was a great way to see this part of the island. The days we chose just to stay at the condo, the pools were great, lots of comfy loungers available, or sit along the ocean wall and watch for whales. The barbecues are webers, and we used a lot, enjoyed eating on the lanai in the evenings. On days we went out we would walk to Java Jazz behind the condo, was a fun little place with music at 7:00 nightly. Or walk down the beach to one of the condo bars with happy hour. All in all we had an awesome two week vacation in Susan s unit!!! Thanks so much!!!!"

"My Wife, I, and our two young adult children had a great time on our first visit ever to Hawaii for a week. Unit L-401 is a great condo with fantastic ocean views from the balcony to the West and South, only 50 feet from the ocean! Condition and amenities of the condo were great and very clean. Only negative things I can say is the Wi-Fi would not work in the first floor master bedroom (was fine in living room & balcony) and if you didn't keep the blinds drawn in the afternoons it could get a little warm, though later in the evening it cooled down. It was low 80's in May for our visit. We used the living room air conditioner twice to cool it down. Papakea Resort has beautiful grounds and was a quiet place. Susan of the concierge resort office was a great help in arranging our outings for us and making any needed reservations. From the Property it's an easy 1-2 block walk to nearby markets, restaurants, and Snorkel Bob's rental shop where we got our rental snorkel gear. Our favorite activities were the snorkeling trip we did to Molokini Crater by the Pacific Whale Foundation; snorkeling twice on our own to Kapalua Bay, only 15 minute drive North where we saw lots of tropical fish and sea turtles; Tandem Para-sailing from Lahaina harbor by West Maui Parasail. Highly recommend unit L-401 at Papakea Resort and owners were a pleasure to deal with by phone and e-mail. Best vacation ever !"

"We had a wonderful time at this condo. We had a party of 9- 4 adults and five children. The space was perfect for us with two king bedrooms and the loft with bath as well as the pull out sofa. The condo is very nicely updated (great bathrooms and kitchen) and has every amenity anyone could possibly need- from kitchen equipment to beach gear. The view from the unit is spectacular, overlooking the beautiful grounds with a nice ocean view. The location of the property was great. One minor let-down was the lack of a beach on the property. There is literally no beach at any tide level-just a sea wall that drops to the ocean. However, beautiful Kaanapali beach and Whaler's Village (among many other beaches) is just minutes away, so not a big deal other than having to pack up all the beach gear. We would absolutely recommend this unit for families. Thank you for a great stay on Maui!!"
