About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Why settle for ocean view when you can have OCEANFRONT! You could throw a coconut to the water from our deck. THE SUNSET PICTURE WAS TAKEN FROM OUR LANAI. Our condo is as close as you can get to the ocean and offers easy access to world famous Kaanapali Beach for long walks in the sand. Watch the world go by from the lanai with the privacy of being on the 3rd floor.

Watch the whales (Nov - April) from your deck while you drink your morning coffee or with evening cocktails as you watch the sunset.

Let the waves lull you to sleep. The master suite and living room have breathtaking views looking across the channel to the islands of Lanai and Molokai. We are one of the few units with both ocean front views in the living area and master bedroom. Most of the units have all the bedrooms to the back of the condo.

New air-conditioning unit in both bedrooms and the living area.

Fully remodeled. Sliding glass doors that open from the center bringing more of the view in.

New tiles floors throughout.

Newly remodeled kitchen with granite counter tops, natural cherry cabinets, stainless steel appliances. Fully appointed making cooking and eating in a breeze.

Newly remodeled bathrooms. Master bath is an en-suite with a new walk in shower.

Second bathroom also has a newly remodeled walk in shower.

The Papakea Oceanfront Resort is a tropical oasis of 13 acres of manicured grounds. It has the largest amount of land of any condominium resort on Maui's Kaanapali beach, the only resort with two oceanfront pools, two spas, two 12 hole putting greens. Grounds also include three lighted tennis courts, two shuffleboards, two beach cabanas, tranquil koi ponds, lush gardens and 12 outdoor barbecues.

This is one of the best locations on Maui! From your lanai, enjoy ever-changing ocean views of beautiful sunsets, rainbows, dolphins, turtles, seals, whales(Nov.-April), surfers and boats. You will be footsteps away from great swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing and relaxation.

This 3rd floor unit, in the desired 'L 'building, is an oceanfront unit with central air and ceiling fans throughout. Kitchen is fully equipped. The bathrooms are complete with new cabinets, granite counter tops and walk in showers. Of the waterfront buildings, the 'L' building has the closest parking to the building and an elevator. It is also the closest to the year round beach next door as the beach in front of us comes and goes with the tides.

This 2 bedroom IS NOT A LOFT! This condo has two very private bedrooms and A/C throughout or fans cool the condo easier than a two story loft area.

The condo sleeps four to six with a California king bed in the master bedroom. Fall asleep to the sound of the waves. All rooms are on the same level. If you tire of the view, there are two flat screen TV's in the living room and master bedroom.

Two twin beds in the second bedroom can be turned into a king bed upon request.

The living room sofa is a queen size sleeper sofa.

There is a washer/dryer in unit.

This unit is equipped with golf putters, tennis rackets, various snorkel equipment, beach toys, collapsible cooler and beach chairs.

About The Owner

We are from Seattle and our family loves to come to Maui for the sun and all the water sports.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2008

Why The Owner chose Kaanapali

We chose Papakea Resort because we love the traditional Island feel of a lowrise building with the beautiful gardens and koi ponds. It is a great location in the heart of everything but with so much acreage to number of units it feels very relaxing. It offers so many things to do for everyone in our family from the very young to teenagers to older adults.

What makes this condo unique

We chose our oceanfront condo because we love sitting on the deck watching the world go by...from the whales feeding , to boats, to fishing, and people strolling by. We love the views of sunsets, rainbows and the islands of Lanai and Molokai. We also love hearing the sound of waves from the living room as well as from the oceanfront master suite. We love being able to just step outside for a long stroll down Kaanapali Beach or boogie boarding, surfing or snorkeling.

Thank You SO much!!! We had a fabulous time. We loved your place and plan to re-book for next year! The proximity to the water... sleeping and waking to the sounds of the ocean... watching the whales... just dreamy! The kitchen was SO amazingly fully stocked and with the Fish Market within walking distance we were able to craft up 5 star dinners without spending too much on eating out.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed our little spot in paradise. It is hard to leave that deck when the whales are visiting Maui. Glad you enjoyed our kitchen too. I must admit I don't use it as much I as should because of all the great restaurants, so I'm glad you took full advantage of it. We would welcome you to stay again next year! Mahalo, Rachelle

Fantastic Condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic Condo! Everything we were hoping for! Can't beat the views. Even saw whales from our balcony. Minor issues with A/C and Internet access but not deal breakers. Very attractively priced compared to similar units. Owner Rachelle Jacobson was very pleasant to work with. Would definitely go back again!

Beautiful Maui condo with unobstructed ocean views

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this condo and description are 100% accurate. Can hear the waves while in the master bedroom and sitting on the lanai drinking morning coffee or evening cocktails was amazing. The location is easy walking distance to several stores and the Kaanapali Beach and boardwalk. The condo was fully stocked, very clean and had strong WiFi. Rachelle, the owner, was very responsive and helpful. Highly recommend this condo.

Views views views

  • 4 of 5

Great location, on the third floor of a building right on the water. There was no beach at all when we went which was disappointing. The best bet for a sandy beach was the Sheraton about 1.5 miles down the boardwalk near Black Rock. The condo was nicely remodeled with modern kitchen and baths. The view was fabulous, some of us found it hard to get out, wanting to chill right there. The master is huge with picture windows also looking out at the view. The second bedroom is much smaller with a tiny window so not ideal for two couples sharing. Our one gripe was that the a/c is on a 4 hour manual timer, meaning it turns off unless reset. We didn’t like waking up in a stuffy bedroom and having to get up and turn the unit back on, and or coming back and having to cool the place down. Luckily the three room units are fast and the weather is mostly perfect.😁

Perfect Honeymoon Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had the most perfect time in Maui on our Honeymoon while staying at Papa Kea! The views were amazing from sunrise to sunset and the weather was fantastic for us the entire week. It was quite warm when we were there but having air conditioning in the condo was AWESOME! The full size kitchen with all the necessary supplies was really nice so we could get food from Safeway or Costco and make a meal at the condo if we wanted! We had breakfast and coffee on the Lanai every morning.

The location couldn’t have been better for th activities we wanted to do also! It is only 10 minutes from Lahaina and only about 5 minutes from Whalers Village which is also great to eat dinner or shop around. There are several hotels down the beach that we would walk to after coffee and in the evenings for dinner or even just dessert.

We absolutely enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay on Maui! It would be great for a small family, friends or honeymooners like us! We can’t wait to go back :)

Owner's Response: Congratulations on your marriage !!! We were thrilled to be a part of your memories and are glad you enjoyed our condo! The air-conditioning does come in handy over the summer months with all the views of the sunsets and water, it does get warm in the summer. So glad you enjoyed all our conveniences and our location too. Blessing on your wedding and may you have many happy years ahead of you!!
