Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

[Latest upgrades: Our AC now consists of 3 Fujitsu, tri-zone, whisper-quiet units with wireless remotes to provide AC throughout the condo, not just in the LR; we now have a six-panel, Thermopane "wall of glass" which provides a 10-foot wide opening out onto our lanai; our master BR now has sliding, Thermopane windows to provide a quiet sleeping experience, and we have bamboo shades for both the lanai doors and the master BR windows.]

Our condo is the perfect place for a family vacation or a romantic escape. From your fourth-floor lanai, you have 180-degree views of the ocean, shuffleboard court, pool/Jacuzzi/barbecue area, putting green, gardens and koi ponds, and the beautiful West Maui Mountains.

Our expansive living room has a cathedral ceiling, which gives an open, airy, very spacious feeling. The wall of mirrors reflects the ocean view and the outside beauty of Papakea. The wall of glass to the lanai slides completely open, so it's as if you can walk right out into the beauty that you see.

Our large kitchen is fully equipped and completely remodeled with granite countertops and backsplash and top-of-the-line appliances. Our refrigerator is full-sized, not just an apartment-sized one. All our lower cabinets have pull-out shelves for easy reach and storage.

Our condominium comfortably sleeps six. The master BR has a king-size bed and mirrored closet doors. There is a queen-size sofa sleeper in the living room with a 6-inch mattress. The twin beds in the loft can be configured into a second king-size bed when requested. All linens are provided, including beach towels, and there is a new Bosch washer and dryer in the hallway closet for your convenience.

There are two bathrooms. The master bath has been completely remodeled and has a glass-block shower for two, a tropical rain shower, and a kitchen-height countertop. The loft has a new, full-sized bathroom with a pedestal sink, shower with a river-rock floor, and plenty of shelves for all your needs.

Papakea has 13 oceanfront acres of beautiful tropical landscaping, vast lawns, peaceful lagoons, and bridges. There two pools and two Jacuzzis, as well as two putting greens, two shuffleboard courts, and tennis courts on the property. Championship golf courses are but moments away.

Coconut palms outline your views of the Pacific and the nearby islands of Lana’i and Moloka’i. The sounds of rustling palms, tropical birds, and gentle surf relax and comfort you. Ahhhh, yes, isn't this exactly what you had in mind?

Our guests have consistently commented that neither pictures nor words adequately describe G-407. You can be assured that every aspect of our condo will meet or exceed your expectations. Our goal has always been to do all we can to help you, our guests, love Maui and feel comfortable in our condo!

Welcome to our second home, welcome to paradise. Aloha nui loa... Anne & Wes

Wes put up a new video stream from our April trip, which includes a 24-minute sunset from our lanai, early morning scene from our lanai, and the huge surf at both Napili Bay and Fleming Beach. It was amazing! Enjoy!]

About Anne Burmark

We live on an island in WA State, Fox Island, near Gig Harbor, 45 miles SW of Seattle. Anne is a former English/Spanish teacher and deposition court reporter, and Wes is a former elementary teacher and director of instructional technology in Tacoma Public Schools, the same district where he went to school.

Anne Burmark purchased this condo in 1998

Why Anne Burmark chose West Maui

Papakea Resort has been special to me, Anne, since I first rented there in 1979 when I was teaching English. A student's parents owned a unit there. I had lived on O'ahu as a child, and the spirit of Aloha was everywhere for me on Maui. Papakea soon became an annual vacation spot. Wes and I married in 1997, and we bought our condo in 1998. It is our second home now, and we want your visits to be special, comfortable, and memorable in the very best ways.

What makes this condo unique

Papakea is an oasis, a relaxing and beautiful place that is the perfect base for exploring all the possibilities on Maui. It has so many wonderful amenities and a very nurturing atmosphere. Three-time guests said it is their sanctuary and retreat.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My goodness Anne!!! You don't skip a beat! Since the moment I contacted you in February you have been so delightful to work with. You certainly go above and beyond any owner I have ever rented from... oh how I wish I knew of you our first trip over. We spent our first three days driving aimlessly!! Your love and enthusiasm for Maui is priceless. From so many attractions and hidden treasures Maui has to offer all the way down to a light switch... Your detailed information is greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Papakea Resort. The condo was perfect for our family of 4. Just as Anne & Wes promised, we enjoyed many mornings and evenings soaking up the view from our lanai, which is just fantastic. We also saw the whales cruising past in the mornings while we had our coffee! The property is in a great location, has great facilities (very clean and tidy) and comes highly recommended

Owner's Response: Aloha Rebecca, Mahalo for your review. As I mentioned to Chris in response to his email Sunday, we're always so happy to hear about our guests having a wonderful time and enjoying both Papakea and our condo! The three pictures he shared with us are stunning! Mahalo for those. We'll share them in an upcoming Maui Sun Break. Enjoy your memories and your pictures! A hui hou... Anne & Wes

Papakea G-407

  • 5 of 5

we, 2 couples, stayed for a week at this condo and we loved our time there. The description on the website was perfect. The unit was cool during the warm days. The kitchen had everything we needed and we entertained friends for dinner on several occasions! The whole complex is lovely too. Our grandchildren enjoyed the pool and the small golfing area. We had a session with an Expedia tourist representative and learned what tours are available and we ended up taking several tours. (whale watching and helicopter) What a beautiful place this is!

Papakea condo

  • 5 of 5

We are return guests who enjoy the location and condo as much now as our first visit. The owners are great hosts, property well cared for inside and out, amenities like pools, BBQ grills, putting green well maintained. Each visit to Maui has us exploring the Maui Tips to plan our days and restaurant choices. This year an exceptional amount of whale sightings kept us entertained. We also used the concierge service to arrange some trips and that was a pleasant and efficient process. Convenient to local shopping and coastal activities and its smaller resort size makes the condo an excellent home base. One can never tire of the sunset view from the lanai either. We love it!

Great Location - Comfortable Condo - Great Lanai with Views - Reasonable Rates

  • 5 of 5

The owners of the condo are wonderfully kind, responsive and helpful. This was our first time staying in the NW part of Maui, and they helped us become well-acquainted with the area before we arrived so we could plan our outings. The condo is well-appointed with everything you need for a comfortable stay. This is not the Ritz Carlton, but A) it's half the price and B) you don't need the Ritz (in our opinion) to enjoy the endless beauty of Maui! We didn't cook much, but you certainly can in the well-stocked kitchen. We had a number of wonderful meals (fish tacos!...) on the lanai overlooking the ocean and a cold beer at the end of the day as the sun was setting. Papakea is a nice resort - well maintained, a modest but enjoyable pool, and nice proximity to a boardwalk along the ocean that allows for a nice morning walk.

Overall - highly recommended for those looking for strong value for their money and super helpful owners to make the whole process easy and seamless!

Owner's Response: Aloha Matt, We so enjoyed helping you and your family discover all that West Maui has to offer! Mahalo for being such wonderful guests and spending your boys' midwinter break in G-407 and at Papakea. The fish tacos and cold beer on the lanai while watching the beautiful sunsets sounds perfect! Happy memories to you all... A hui hou. Anne & Wes

WILL DO IT AGAIN AND AGAIN

  • 5 of 5

Monday morning, 8 am, sitting on the lanai, coffee in one hand, binoculars in the other, watching whales breaching about a quarter mile out...what a wonderful world. Over the past 20 years we’ve stayed in many of the units in Papakea...this unit and location is one of the best. From the 4th floor this condo offers beautiful views of the turquoise ocean as well as the pool, the putting green and the koi ponds. At night we love to sit on the lanai enjoying the tiki torches, the people in the pool and the lights of the condos across the gardens. This condo is well renovated with lighter wood kitchen cabinets and granite countertop, kitchen is well stocked. Love the rain faucet in the glass block shower. Wall of glass to the lanai slides completely open to let in the sights, smells and sounds of this beautiful island. Its obvious that the owners are proud of their condo and like to share it with others. We’ve booked it again for a month next year.

Everything you expect from a Maui vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I traveled for the first time to Maui over the summer and what a wonderful experience. Anne and Wes were fantastic throughout the entire booking process and were a wealth of knowledge and helpful hints that they were more than willing to share. Their home was wonderfully maintained, clean and such a welcome place for us to stay. There was room for 6 people comfortably (2 adults and 4 children) and everything that we needed was present. The property itself is beautiful with plenty of opportunity for recreation just down stairs. The concierge staff were also incredibly helpful as we navigated our way around Maui! We definitely hope to have an opportunity to stay here again and would highly recommend it to others. Thank you Anne and Wes!

We will welcome you back anytime in the future when you return to your island home for another fun time. Enjoy your memories and pictures! A hui hou... Anne & Wes
