One Bedroom Oceanfront Condo at Papakea Resort

Bedrooms 1
Space 597 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

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

This beautiful one bedroom oceanfront unit is located on the third floor of the 'A' Building at Papakea Resort and is approximately 50 feet from the ocean. Papakea is a beautifully landscaped, low rise complex (4-story) that includes 2 swimming pools, 12 gas operated barbecues, 2 spas, 2 twelve hole putting greens, 2 shuffleboard courts, 3 lighted tennis courts, and many more extras.

The condo sleeps 4 (California king size bed in the bedroom and a new queen-size sofa bed in the living room) and is equipped with everything that you will need. The unit is clean and well maintained. The condo is not air conditioned. The unit has a high efficiency ceiling fan in the bedroom and the living room. The sliding door (screened) to the lanai can be left open all night to allow a cooling breeze and let you enjoy the sounds of the ocean. The unit offers complete privacy since the only people that can see into the unit are on Molokai (nine miles across the Pailolo channel).

The bathroom has been completely remodeled and the kitchen was completely remodeled with granite counter tops, wood cabinets and drawers, a new stainless steel refrigerator, dishwasher and over-the-range microwave oven.

Watch the famous Maui sunsets from your private lanai. The whales are frequent visitors to the Papakea waters and you can watch them play while you relax on the lanai (whale 'season' is approximately from the end of November to the end of March).

We provide 'check-in' cleaning only; no daily maid service. No extra charges for cleaning.

The Papakea Board of Directors has implemented a 'Facilities Fee'. Effective July 1, 2016, the fee is $17.00 per night for the first ten nights of each consecutive 30 day period. The fee (not included in my rates) is payable at the front desk at check out.

Excellent oceanfront location in a very well maintained resort

  • 5 of 5

Papakea Resort is friendly, beautifully landscaped, and only minutes from Ka'anapali Beach. Unit A304 is right on the ocean, with total privacy, and the sound of the waves is soothing and mesmerizing. The resort has 2 lovely pools and many excellent bar-b-ques around each pool for cooking. Unit A304 is extremely well stocked, with all necessary kitchen supplies, lots of towels, golf balls and putters to use out on the resort putting greens, and much more. A minor toilet issue was dealt with immediately by the owner's local handyman. We loved our ten days at this lovely condo.

Great, great place!

  • 5 of 5

Totally satisfied with Jerry and the Papaea.

Room is directly oceanfront- Jerry was super accommodating. Maui is lovely, as usual.

As fellow VRBO owners- (2 condos in North Carolina) Jerry does it right- if we come back to Maui- we’ll stay here again!

Very nice apartment in a great area.

We were very pleased with our stay in Papakea.

We were very pleased with our stay in Papakea

Everything was perfect, the view of the sea from the lanai, the facilities, the very well maintained condo with the pools and other amenities. The contact with the owner was very nice and he fulfilled every wish (eg. later checkout time).

We would book the apartment again at our next stay.

AWESOME VIEWS and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful accommodation with ocean breezes--it doesn't get much better than this--all the conveniences of home were included! Maybe put the small TV in the bedroom and get a larger one for the living room!

Fantastic views from the lanai

  • 5 of 5

We spent 7 days here over New Year's. The location is great - walking distance to Ka'anapali Beach, Duke's Beach House restaurant, Farmer's Market and Deli, Fish Market for takeout or fresh fish, and grocery stores (Times and ABC). For more restaurant options or shopping, Lahaina is only about a 10-15 minute drive away.

The condo is part of a complex and this unit is on the third floor of a building right on the water. We sat on the lanai watching for whales, listening to the surf and watching the sunsets. The complex is well maintained and the unit itself is very clean and well stocked. We had everything we needed for cooking and there were even boogie boards, snorkelling gear and beach chairs for trips to the beach.

lovely holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time staying at this resort, first time in this oceanfront unit. The condo more than met our expectations. It was very well stocked and nicely decorated. We would definitely stay here again! Loved being so close to the ocean and being able to watch and hear it! Thank you for sharing your little piece of paradise!
