Absolutely lovely

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED the Papakea resort, and this unit was lovely, perfectly appointed, clean and comfortable....and everytime we walked in, we literally said "Wow" at the ever changing clouds over Molokai, which consumes your entire view.

The bed was comfortable, every need was met, and we very much appreciated the AC. Though we typically prefer having a bedroom that also faces the sea --one bedrooms at this resort have the bedroom at the back, and people who prefer sleeping in darkness may actually prefer this! -- we would stay here again in a heartbeat, and just might book it again next year!

We loved the provided putters to play the two 12-hole greens on site, and the two pools and hot tubs assured it was never crowded. We swam right in front of the property as well as many of the nearby beaches and parks. I enjoyed free tai chi in the gazebo one morning!

Best of all is the proximity of this resort to supermarkets, restaurants, bus stop, shopping, farmers market, park and more. All of which we could walk to!

We visited the bigger resorts just down the beach in Kannapali, but agreed Papakea has more soul! As does unit F-309. (F building is the best!) Thanks Jill! We'll be back!

Amazing ocean front condo!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful unit, well stocked and very clean. Beautifully manicured grounds and 2 nice pools. Have stayed here numerous times and always happy to return. Lots of amenities nearby and a short walk to the start of the Kaanapali boardwalk for morning walk or run. Owners extremely easy to deal with. Will be back !

Unbeatable View at the Lovely Papakea Resort

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We loved spending time on the balcony reading and listening to the waves rolling in. Every day at about 11:30 we watched turtles swim north, just off shore. What a treat! We were told that they're migrating this time of year. One day we also saw two eagle rays circling each other and swimming fairly close to the sea wall.

We found the condo to be clean, comfortable and well stocked. The owners were friendly and helpful throughout, wanting to ensure that we were happy with our experience. We would definitely recommend that friends stay here and we hope to be back sometime, too.

This is the second year that we've stayed at the Papakea Resort. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and well-maintained. There are multiple activities offered onsite. One of the things we like most about Papakea is that it's a very family-friendly place to stay.

One of the highlights of our trip was driving the road to Hana. We stopped at the Garden of Eden Arboretum along the way-- there were several trails to walk, amazing views, an immense bamboo forest, peacocks and more. The food truck out in front of the arboretum had the best banana nut bread that we've ever had. We also really enjoyed playing in the waves at the black sand beach.

The Iao Needle rain forest is a short drive away and definitely worth taking the time to explore. Shopping in Lahaina is always fun, and my son recommends the shave ice from the shop next to the large banyan tree.

For eating out, we recommend going to Duke's and Leilani's. Both have really good food and amazing ocean/beach views while you dine. Check the local newspaper to see when they have live music.

We stopped by Costco in Kahului right after we flew in and stocked up on breakfast and lunch food for the week. The prices were very reasonable, and not everything is sold in huge quantities like it is back home. Being able to have a couple of meals each day here at the condo saved us quite a bit of money (more money for souvenirs and t-shirts).

All in all, a fabulous trip.

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!
