Papakea 1 BR Oceanfront Corner Unit - Panoramic Views

Bedrooms 1
Space 720 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Ocean front condo with panoramic views from Lanai to Molokai, unobstructed sunset views anytime of year. Private corner unit with wrap around lanai - lots of room to lounge or dine outside. Extra large one bedroom suite with a queen bed, queen sofa sleeper in living room. Bathroom has dressing area with a double sink vanity. Large roomy kitchen for families who enjoy cooking.

Quiet corner of the property - away from parking lot, pool - just the sound of the waves at night. Watch whales right from the lanai during whale season. In-suite washer and dryer, fully-equipped kitchen, air conditioning.

Papakea has the ideal location - right at the north end of Kaanapali beach, private and quiet, but with miles of beach just steps away. Great for those who love swimming, snorkeling, jogging, strolling, or building sand castles! The lush tropical 13 acre grounds and low-rise buildings offer a relaxed island-style ambiance, roomy, yet never crowded. Walking distance to groceries, sundries, coffee shops, and spa. Short drive to shopping, galleries, and world-class dining.

Our beach home has a beautifully updated kitchen with maple cabinets, granite counter tops, and new appliances. We have a glass-top stove set in the kitchen island so that the ocean view can inspire some island-style cooking. The old fluorescent lighting was replaced with natural light and dimmer switches and the new fans have wall-switch speed control so you can create the perfect environment. The living/dining area feature a queen pull-out couch and club chair w/ottoman for ultimate relaxation. The bedroom has new bedding and luxury mattress and an HD tv/dvd.

The only downside is that our condo has become popular for repeat annual visits so it books up early. We think it's perfect for a romantic & relaxing vacation.

About The Owner

Our family enjoys country living in California, but our hearts belong to Hawaii. We're entranced by Hawaii's amazing topography, lush tropical climate, diverse ocean-life, and especially the warm aloha spirit. We have two boys who fell in love with Maui at ages 2 & 4 building sandcastles and spotting sea turtles - now they prefer boogie boarding & snorkeling. From our honeymoon, to family trips, to our anniversary celebration Maui is magical to us.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007

Why The Owner chose Lahaina

After a decade of return trips to Maui we knew our permanent vacation home would be on this island. Maui really is no ka oi. We looked at condos from Napili to Kihei, but didn't see the perfect 'one' until we came to Papakea. We found this resort to be tropical, peaceful, friendly and had several nice condos available. When we saw L301 with it's quiet corner location and 180 degree views we knew this was it - love at first sight!

What makes this condo unique

We love getting up early for a jog down the beach - all the way to Black Rock, or a stroll over to the Farmer's Market for upcountry veggies and tropical fruit. During the day we can watch our kids on the beach from the lanai or play a game of tennis. Evenings are our favorite - we skip the restaurant wait and grill fresh fish by the pool and dine at the ocean-front cabana, getting the best sunset views. The cabana is perfect for families with kids and dining with friends. For a romantic dinner we prefer the private lanai with island music playing in the background. At nightfall we stroll along the torch-lit paths or take a soak in the jacuzzi and plan the next day's adventure.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Many thanks to you for providing such a perfect place to stay while enjoying the sights of Maui. We couldn't have picked a better place. It was everything we hoped for and more. We are telling all of our friends about your condo. We can see it is already booked far into the future. Very telling!

Thanks so much, again, for making our 30th Anniversay celebration the perfect week away!

The condo was perfect for our recent stay on Maui. Views are awesome. The ocean is right outside the sliding glass doors with views of Molokai. We were also able to view whales from the lanai. The location is within walking distance of restaurants and shopping and only a few miles from great beaches and Lahaina. Owners are responsive and accommodating. We will be back!

The view is amazing, great for watching sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was well stocked with anything we needed to prepare meals, enjoy some fun, and relax. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. We didn't stay in much but it was everything we needed when we were there.

Incredible view and condo!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 7 year old daughter and I, had a fabulous time at the Papakea resort and especially in L301. Being on the third floor your get the best of both worlds, you get a fantastic view, the strong sound of the ocean waves, the ability to open all the windows in the evening and have the cool tropical breeze flow thru the condo. It was amazing. The condo is very well stocked and has everything you need, the only complaint that I could state was that the pull out bed from the couch is very uncomfortable, so if adults are trying to sleep on it, be prepared for a backache or neck ache. But that isn't the condo owners fault, since I haven't found a really comfortable pull out couch anywhere. We did have a small issue with the shower drain/kitchen sink getting a drainage block, the owners and the resort maintenance were very responsive, another one of those things that just happens. It didn't wreck the visit in the least, just minor inconveniences and put me out a few hours and a few phone calls. Scott and Linda were very apologetic and wanted to ensure we were impacted as little as possible and work with us on different options. I would highly recommend this condo, I know we hope we'll have the opportunity to visit again soon.

Perfect Honeymoon Spot

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the best time on our honeymoon with much thanks to this place! It had everything we needed - full kitchen, laundry, tv, balcony, etc. It was the perfect place to either relax in the AC or change your mind and go to the beach at the drop of a hat. We loved it!

Great location, great views, well-furnished

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed 2 great weeks here. We've been to Maui many times (have a timeshare nearby that was fully booked by the time we tried to reserve). This unit was so nice, and reasonably priced relative to our timeshare, that we're ready to pull the plug on our timeshare. This corner unit has wonderful ocean views. It is well-furnished, with washer-dryer, dishwasher, updated kitchen, and a nice 2-sink bathroom. We were happily surprised to find the kitchen stocked with spices, cooking oil, etc. which isn't the case at our timeshare. Papakea has free yoga classes, swimmercize, lei-making, mai-tai party, etc. - and we partook of many of them. Definitely would recommend for someone seeking a 1 BR unit in a great location right on the ocean. The owners were helpful, and particularly when we needed to tweak our arrival date at the last minute.
