From the Moment You Enter You Experience Aloha!

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 5 - 10 nights


About the property

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

FROM THE MOMENT YOU ENTER you will be surrounded by the spirit of Aloha. The first impression is from the large mirror in the dining area which reflects your initial glimpse of the Pacific Ocean and the island of Molokai. As you walk through the entry hall on the designer tile floor, your eyes are drawn to the manicured grounds including tranquil koi ponds as you again soak up the beauty of the ocean view. You can envision yourself cooking in the gourmet kitchen with granite counters, new custom maple cabinetry, new stainless steel appliances, and kitchen 'toys' ranging from coffee grinder to NINJA blender, and then realize that this will be your home for the days to come.

From the designer Granite to the new BOSCH Washer and Dryer (2012), BOSCH dishwasher (2014) top of the line designer sleeper sofa, 2 new LCD flat screen (2013), new original artwork, new window treatments in living room and master bedroom (2012) second bedroom (new in 2014) to the NINJA blender and coffee grinder, we have tried to attend to every detail. There is an AM/FM/CD player WITH Iphone/Ipod dock and charging unit in the home as well as two flat screen remote control televisions new 2012) with satelite TV, one in the living area and one located in the master bedroom. Built in Hairdryers in both bathrooms. A major amenity appreciated by our guests is the BOSCH washer and dryer conveniently located in the entry way closet between the two bedrooms for our guests as well as free wireless high speed internet. Both bedrooms are on the same floor. The master bedroom is extra large and all beds have new bed skirting, scarves and jumbo pillow shams (2016). For your added comfort, there are ceiling fans (new 2016) in the living area as well as in both bedrooms in addition to air-conditioning (new split system w/remote control installed 2013). Both bedrooms are carpeted (new 2014). Enjoy the views and the sound of the waves with the new (2016) lanai seating area with sling back swivel rocker chairs.

Papakea is unlike any other resort on the island of Maui. With 13 acres, the Papakea resort is the lowest density condominium project on the island. From the beautiful blue ocean to the lush manicured grounds, Papakea unique when compared to any other property. Grocery shopping is conveniently located directly across the street, and the charming town of Lahaina is only a short 10 minute drive. A few of the amenities on the property include 2 shuffleboards, 3 lighted tennis courts, 2 twelve hole putting greens, 2 pools, 2 whirlpool spas, 12 outdoor barbeque's and 2 beach cabanas. There is plenty of room for the kids to play outside of this convenient ground floor unit, take a stroll from the lanai to see the beautiful koi just feet away or relax with putting greens right outside your lanai door. If it is your desire to lounge on the sand or on the grass next to the ocean, you are only about 50 steps away!

Our home at J-102 of the Papakea resort means far more to us than just a rental. It is our second home that we have grown to love and appreciate. We have also tried to pay attention to every detail and hope that our guests will enjoy our efforts. Our Papakea home has been completely remodeled including granite counter tops and new custom cabinetry in the kitchen and both bathrooms, natural stone accents in both bathrooms, stainless steel appliances, new split air-conditioning system, designer fixtures, under counter and under toe lighting, a full size dishwasher and refrigerator with automatic ice maker, mirrored closets with loads of storage, tiled floors in the living areas, and plush carpet in the bedrooms (new 2014).

We would love to share with you some of our local favorite places to see and favorite things to do (not to mention some of the greatest restaurants). You will receive this information by email once your reservation is received.

Mahalo for considering a visit to our wonderful home as we truly believe Maui No Ka'Oi (Maui is the best)!

About The Owner

Our primary residence is in Chico, California. We visit our home in Maui as often as we are able and make every effort to make our guests feel as much at home as we do. We are primarily retired but Mary works part time as a director of Volunteers for a social services agency and Kim produces short movie clips for non-profit organizations. We have truly come to love our Maui home at Papakea and hope that our guests will feel the same way.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why The Owner chose West Maui

Sitting on nearly 13 beautiful acres, Papakea stood out far and away from other developments in the Kaanapali area. We love the low density, the quiet atmosphere, the feeling of community and the amenities that make us feel on vacation and at home all at the same time. It seems easy to either meet new friends or socialize with old friends simply cooking at the barbeque or just soaking up the magnificent sunset views at the edge of the beach.

What makes this condo unique

Our favorite times at Papakea are having coffee on the beach early in the morning and those famous Maui sunsets and sharing those times with neighbors, friends and visitors. It is great being close to everything including shopping and some of the worlds finest restaurants. We also look forward to our morning walks on the nearly 2 miles of sandy beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aloha Kim,I had intended to contact you as soon as I got home but I don't have my computer yet. We DID have a great time and we all enjoyed the condo. Emilio was very helpful and they did a great job when they came and cleaned. We were all sad to leave but we sure have had a lot to talk about since getting back. Maui probably missed us because we did help the economy while we were there. We all wanted to thank you for extending our check out time. I have already recommended your place to other people who think they may have a vacation there in the future. All of the other women said they would certainly come back there and stay. Have a great holiday with your family and a great Christmas and New Year. Thanks for all your kindness,

Fabulous Unit!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week in this fabulous ground floor unit! We have rented many properties off VRBO and this is by far in our top 3 all time favorites! The kids are already asking to go back. The unit itself is truly as amazing as the pictures. The owners are wonderful to work with and very prompt in answering questions, even when you are there! Ground floor unit is the only way to go. It was literally a 30 second walk to the beach with my tea in the morning. Beautifully upgraded and well stocked. Washer and dryer came in very handy too! I could have easily stayed an additional week and been quite happy about it! It's very obvious the owners really care about their property. We are looking forward to returning!

Owner's Response: A big Mahalo for your kind words Christina. We truly love our Maui home at the Papakea Resort, always hope it shows, and appreciate it enormously when our guests relay a positive experience. It is equally a great experience to work with guests such as yourself who are likewise courteous and like to communicate. Communication has become a value to us and we believe it is part of what has allowed us to stay full.

The condo was perfect for us and just as the pictures showed.

  • 5 of 5

The condo and property were very nice, just as the pictures showed. It was great being on the first floor and able to walk right out to the koi pond, putting green, pool and ocean. After a trip to the grocery store we had everything we needed in the kitchen for breakfast, snacks and a few dinners in the condo.

A Great Unit

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this unit! This is our second experience with a ground floor unit, and we’re convinced that’s the only way to go. The access to the pool and barbecues, as well as meeting and talking to others as they walk by is a great addition to the experience.

Having stayed in a number of units over the years, we found this to be one of the best upgrades/remodels we’ve rented. The finishes and furnishings were great, and some of the features added (trash/recycle bins and large pullouts) are ones we included in our own kitchen remodel. Really appreciated the stock of cups, glasses and cups, which cut down on running the dishwasher. The electrical switches were clearly marked and the TV instructions understandable (something other units lack).

Check in was easy, and the unit was ready with everything cleaned, stocked and ready to use. There were lots of towels throughout and all appliances worked properly. We did pop a breaker using the coffeemaker and the microwave at the same time, but that was easily remedied. The new air conditioner is quiet and efficient, although we only used it once briefly during our stay. Our last two days were quite rainy, during which we did a jigsaw puzzle (which we left for future guests).

Overall a great experience and good value, and your communication and accommodation as owners were exceptional. We’ll look for your unit’s availability first the next time we need a 2-bedroom.

Highly Recommend--Top Notch!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this condo -- the location is great.. Walking distance to the grocery store, coffee shop, pizza and restaurants. The grounds at Papakea are a tropical paradise with two pool/hot tub areas and the staff are friendly and helpful. Everything was meticulously maintained throughout the public areas. Parking was plentiful -- there was always a parking spot close by the condo.

The condo itself is fabulous and felt like a luxury apartment. My daughter and I stayed there and other family members/friends stayed in another condo on the 4th floor so our condo became the place to make dinner every night as it's close to the bbq area and was large enough to serve dinner to six adults and four children with ease using the indoor dining room and outside patio area table/chairs. Plenty of plates, glasses and utensils, etc.

Thank you for sharing your fabulous condo -- it exceeded my expectations!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your kind words. As is often the case, guests who are so great to work with most always have a great experience. We are so happy you enjoyed both our Maui home as well as the island of Maui. We hope our paths cross again one day soon! It was a delight to share our Maui home with you.

Great condo, even better location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We truly did enjoy our stay in Maui at Kim and Mary's condo, even with the 2 days of flash floods. The condo was wonderful, well equipt and with the exception of food :-) we were lacking nothing. It was extremelly clean and was obviously well taken care of. The owners (kim & Mary) were very easy to work with and when we had a questions during our stay we emailed them and they responded immediately. The staff at the resort were great also. I would recommend this condo to anyone and weplan to go back again. The gound level unit was great for being able to walk out and bar-b-q by the pool and still be close to the unit. Sitting on the lani was the highlight of our mornings.

We got to do most of what we wanted during this trip (yes we will be back) except zip lining, they cancelled that during the flash floods. The road to Hana was wonderful also, we did a tour which was great, we would highly recommend this to anyone who goes. We did a helicopter tour on what the pilot said was the clearest day they’d had in weeks and it was great, also spent 1 day in Oahu and got to see Pearl Harbor.

This was my first trip to Maui and it was wonderful and I will be back.
