About Amy & Joe Consul

Joe and Amy live in California with their two beautiful daughters. We love to vacation together and as a family travel to Maui and are always looking forward to our next visit to the Papakea! Walking into the condo feeling the trades is relaxing and calming. Please enjoy our home. We continue to improve the condo to make it the best experience and most comfortable for all our guests. We visit several times a year and are always listening to our guests for positive suggestions.

We want you to feel like you are on the vacation you deserve.

Amy & Joe Consul purchased this condo in 2009

Why Amy & Joe Consul chose Lahaina

Following 8 trips to Hawaii including 6 to Maui, we realized that the Papakea was the perfect vacation and second home resort property for us. The Papakea is a beautiful resort property located ocean front between world class resorts in Kaanapali and Kapalua. It's minutes from shops, restaurants and galleries in Lahaina as well as world class golf in Kapalua. And each night you have a front row seat to the most beautiful sunsets on the world! Celebrating 9 years of ownership in paradise

What makes this condo unique

The views are spectacular, very relaxing, close to the beach. The Papakea is one of a few low rise resorts offering beach front condos. Though through many years of Mother Nature having her way there are wonderful ocean views but no beach in front of the property.This property buildings are four stories high with easy elevator access.

We love waking up and having coffee on the lanai to start another wonderful day in paradise!! Having the master bedroom on the ocean side is unique and is why we visit the islands, for the scenery and sounds of Hawaii

During whale season you can see the whales in front of the Papakea. This is truly breathtaking, bring your binoculars sit back and enjoy the show!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful vacation in your condo. The location was so great; close to everything we wanted or needed, but far enough from Kaanapali that we felt we could relax. The whale-watching was just superb the week we were there. People who live at Papakea year-round were even commenting on how great it was. We just sat on the loungers by the ocean and watched for hours. Our entire family was thrilled with the resort and the condo. It was very comfortable for all nine of us, we never felt crowded. Even when we all sat down to eat, we used the table, the bar and the lanai and it was very comfortable. Thanks for everything.

My family and I loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Great location and within driving distance to many activities. The condo had plenty of sleep space which was great for my large family. I loved that the condo had a washer/dryer - which was so convenient. The property is beautiful and smells amazing. So glad we stayed at Papakea.

Absolute amazing location and fantastic condo!!!

We had a wonderful vacation. The condo was awesome and very well stocked with many extras. It has the most amazing views. I was impressed on the number of staff that daily maintains the grounds, pool, grills, etc. After 10 days on the island, and seeing many other areas, I couldn’t have picked a better place – absolute perfect location. The condo slept 8 very comfortably and living space was not a concern. Owners were excellent through the booking stage, were very prompt to respond to questions, and communicated during our stay to see if everything was going well. I had looked at many other properties before choosing this one – I truly made the BEST choice. Thank you so much Joe & Amy, our vacation is one for the record books.

Great place for a family vacation

  • 4 of 5

We booked E404 for a week at the end of April for a family of 6. I have never been to this property, although we have been to Lahaina and other properties in the past. There is very little, if anything to be considered a "negative" about this place, the front counter attendant was friendly and knowledgeable. we got our room within minutes. The photo in the picture is exactly the view you get, the room was as expected, and the grounds were well kept. We found a single insect in our room, which we removed, and the toilet handle was broken, which we did a temp repair on just to make it easy on us....and the front door is a little heavy so it needs to be pulled shut, that's about it for complaints. There were a PILE of items in the closet to use, everything from boogie boards to snorkels and golf clubs and balls....we even left a couple fishing items to add to the collection. Shuffle board was fun, the putting green is fun, and the pools and hot tubs were all great. All the appliances were in great working order, the kitchen was well stocked with all the cooking items needed, as well as basic food items I assume from past guests. Beach towels, bath towels, and toiletries were on hand as well. We BBQ'ed many of the nights, and ate right at the pool in the cabana....and Thurs. nights are Mia Tia night, free drinks!! It's not a new condo, but it's not run down either...A little above our price point if it was just me and my girlfriend....but for a family it is very comfortable and highly recommended by me.

Golf vacation

  • 4 of 5

Very nice place to enjoy a vacation. Everything in the house was provided as promised. It was clean, complete kitchen, plenty of towels and comfortable. Only thing we were surprised at was that one queen and both twins were in the same loft. I had the impression from the ad that it was 3 bedrooms and a loft. Still, we enjoyed the condo and the beautiful view from the top floor lanai.

Owner's Response: Art, glad you were able to enjoy your vacation. We do work at providing a complete kitchen so there aren't any worries and you can just think about golf and vacation!! I'm sorry you were surprised about the loft that includes many spaces for all guests to enjoy that area. I agree the lanai is my favorite spot to enjoy coffee each morning with the beautiful view..
