Great family friend vacation
"Great vacation. This was our second trip to Maui but my daughters friend first trip. The grounds of the papakea are wonderful and relaxing. Everything was right there for us. Walk across street to great resturants and shops. Make sure to check out the pizza it was amazing. Everything in easy access. Make sure to go to the gazebo for breakfast, but go early lines start early. Take a short drive to the Honolua Bay to snorkel. The condo was great, we got great ocean breezes in the evening which helped being on the top floor meant it could get rather hot. The air conditioner is a window unit which kept the downstairs cool, but being in the loft it could get warm, but it did cool down. Thank-you for working with us and letting us have a later check-out time due to our late flight."

"Our family stayed here in June/July 2015 for 2 weeks. The condo was spacious and Joe and Amy had everything there that we needed including the needed beach towels, extra snorkels, beach chairs, and shade umbrellas. The view from the balcony was wonderful, loved the privacy that a fourth floor unit provides. We walked to a lot of our venues right from the condo (supermarket, shops, farmer's market, moped rentals, restaurants close) and loved the miles of beach accessed right out front. Every morning, we'd walk the beach for a few miles to start out the day--absolutely fantastic. We did snorkel some right out front and saw turtles and a variety of fish, even though our favorite place to snorkel was a few miles up in Honolua Bay area. Since we were here for two weeks, a cleaning crew came in and spruced up the place half way through our stay--all part of the rental price. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook up our own meals and the grills on the property were top-notch. This is definitely a beautiful place!"

"This has been one of our best vacations ever and this condo fit the bill perfectly. We would leave in the morning and explore the island and usually returned in the late afternoon and spent time at the pool and recharge our batteries. The rooms were perfect size and the place wonderfully maintained. We had everything we needed. The process to sign up for the room and check-in/check-out was painless. The location was perfect. Lastly, Bryan was top shelf and easy to communicate with. We would definitely seek to rent through Bryan again in the future. Thank you for a week of special memories."

"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 !"
