  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed a weeks stay in F-309. The unit and the entire grounds were everything that was promised. The unit was clean, well maintained, and the owners are great to deal with. We enjoyed our coffee on the lanai each morning and some lunches and dinners as well. There is a great fish market within walking distance, along with a natural foods market and an ABC general store. We will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you Michele. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay in Papakea F-309. We too enjoy most of our meals on our private lanai; the view can't be beat and being on the third floor provides privacy. We also love that we have never had mosquitoes! :-) West Maui is drier than other parts of Maui and Hawaii which might be why. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Birthday Celebration

  • 4 of 5

Was a special treat to celebrate my 70th birthday in Maui. This is the first time we have rented through VRBO so we were not sure what to expect. The Aston at Papakea is an older resort that has been lovingly maintained. The grounds are meticulously landscaped, the pool areas are beautiful and the putting greens are a popular spot. Our one bedroom unit, F-309, was nicely furnished and provided all of the comforts of home. The oceanfront view is spectacular! We spent a lot of time watching the turtles and the whales directly in front of our lanai. Obviously our view of the sunset was the best in the area because about an hour before sunset other guests started bringing chairs to set up in front of our building to have prime views of the nightly beautiful spectacle.

Thank you for sharing your lovely vacation home.

Spectacular Views in Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

My mom and I stayed here on our mother-daughter trip to Maui, and we loved it. It was raining on the day we arrived, and as we sat on the Lanai we saw at least 4 rainbows over the ocean. We loved having coffee on the lanai and watching the whales surface. The apartment is a good size, the facilities offer all sorts of amenities, and it is only a short drive into town, and we were able to bike to beautiful beaches. We would definitely stay here again if we ever find ourselves in Maui again (which we certainly hope happens).

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review for us. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay in Papakea F-309. Like you, we have seen some beautiful rainbows (and double rainbows) from our lanai (balcony). Although you certainly don't need binoculars to see the rainbows, we try to remind guests to bring binoculars with them. Besides whales and sea turtles, we have seen magnificent schools of dolphins swim by right in front of our condo. Guests can watch all of this ocean excitement while relaxing on our private lanai. We hope to welcome you back to our island home soon!

We have stayed in F-309 many times and just finished up 4 weeks there. Everything was in ship-shape order in the unit and on the grounds in general---great to have gate keys that worked flawlessly this year. And the wi-fi connection in the unit is now excellent. The complete remodel of this unit has ensured a very comfortable stay---lots of items for use on the beach are in the ample closets. Easy walking to major grocery store (Times is excellent value), ABC, Farmer's Market and many other retails shops; sidewalks in the surrounding area make walking much easier than north of Kahana. Perfect unit for two and any length of visit. Overall, Papakea is a special complex and this unit as ideally located as one can get. We look forward to our four weeks in 2018.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review for us. We appreciate your loyalty to Papakea F-309 and always like to hear that you continue to be pleased with our condo. We strive to continually improve, enhance, and maintain our condo just as Papakea Resort strives to continually improve, enhance, and maintain the overall property. The cable/internet upgrade of last summer has greatly improved access. Although the various construction projects that Papakea Resort has undertaken over the past several years have been disruptive at times, they are behind us now and the Resort is much better as a result. We look forward to welcoming you back next winter.

Awesome location

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo and the grounds. They location was great. We went to Lahaina a couple nights (couple minute drive) and spends lots of time on the ocean cliffs and beaches just north of the condo. I thought the condo was much nicer than the pictures show. It was perfect.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to post a review for us. Papakea Resort is indeed an ideal location on Maui: 10-15 minutes from either the Kaanapali or Kapalua golf courses, 10 minutes from beautiful snorkeling in Napili, and only 15 minutes from shopping and dining in Lahaina. We are so glad that you enjoyed our condo and your Maui vacation. We hope to welcome you back soon.
