About Valarie and Trent

We are from northern California and always wanted a vacation home on the ocean. It is the perfect place to just get away and do whatever you like! We also liked this property for our children and friends to visit, as it offers something for everyone. We especially enjoy the 'Aloha' spirit and the friendliness of the island people. Our favorite thing about the condo are the unobstructed views and beautiful sunsets! Please remember to view our video on this website! Aloha, and enjoy your vacation in beautiful Maui!

Valarie and Trent purchased this condo in 2008

Why Valarie and Trent chose Lahaina

The first time we visited this condo, we were in awe of the beautiful views and the amenities. We liked all of the upgrades, which made it very comfortable and enjoyable. The view off the Lanai is so incredible, and the sound of the waves is soothing. It is very conveniently located in an area where you can walk to local restaurants, shop for groceries and visit other resorts. Kanapali golf course is 2 miles south and the Kapalua golf course is 5 miles to the north, where you can find world class dining and breath taking views. Lahaina is 8 minutes to the south and always a fun place to go for shopping/dining. Swimming, surfing and snorkeling right out your back door. Big green sea turtles year round, and seasonal whale watching during the winter months even from the Lanai. Amazingly you can even see the whales breech!

What makes this condo unique

Newly purchased 2 flat screen TV's in the condo, DVD player, Stereo & I-Pod for your music, fully appointed kitchen, putting greens, 2 swimming pools and spas, shuffleboard, tennis courts, Koi ponds, gardens, and an activities coordinator at the front desk to help you plan all of your activities. It is so nice to barbeque right down around the pool area..Another great thing about the condo is that we are a top floor corner unit, so we have a private Lania with wrap around views! We love the ocean front setting with unobstructed views of crashing waves, and the islands of Molokai and Lanai. You can stroll south along the beach for miles and or hop on the Boardwalk to Whaler's Village. News!!! We installed a brand tri- zone AC in 2016 to keep each room in the and condo real cool!!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a WONDERFUL time in Maui and at your condo ... Again. We always get sad on our last day ... We just HATE leaving. Maui is truly paradise on earth.

We'll definitely be considering the 2019 dates ... We have one more of our adult children that we'd love to bring ... So we'll see!

Thank you for sharing your wonderful place. We always try to leave it better than we found it ... But that's hard, because it's always pretty impeccable when we arrive!

Papakea is a beautiful resort property!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in unit L401. The view from the condo was more spectacular in person. The condo was clean and very comfortable. When not sightseeing, we spent most of our time on the lanai enjoying the sound of the surf. I highly recommend this unit and hope to rent it again.

Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week long stay at condo L401 with a party of five, 3 adults and 2 kids. As previous reviews have stated, the views are simply stunning. You are literally feet away from the ocean. The condo has everything you need to make yourself at home. The appliances were spotless and appeared to be virtually brand new. We enjoyed ourselves immensely and would recommend this unit to anyone wanting that Maui oceanfront experience. Valarie was amazing to work with! She was very quick to respond to any questions I had. There was a crazy storm that came through while we were there with 5 inches of rain and the entire island of Maui lost power. We were able to take our food down and use the grills provided around the pools to cook, another bonus of the resort we had not anticipated:) All in all, a wonderful experience and we look forward to returning!

Dream trip made reality

  • 5 of 5

This is basically the penthouse! It is the absolutle best spot at the condos! We enjoyed amazing sunsets every evening and woke to beautiful rainbows most mornings. Peaceful and relaxing, all the comforts of home but in paradise! We enjoyed walking down to neighboring resorts for happy hour, many afternoons snorkeling in the calm waters just footsteps from the property. We loved the friendly atmosphere as you come and go from Papakea. The best though, as we were sadly packing the car to leave, a gentleman approached us and asked if we were headed to the airport (maybe it was the slumped shoulders and down faces that gave it away!), he asked us to wait while he ran off. He came back with two fresh leis and said "This is how we say goodbye, aloha style". Ugh, brings me to tears! So so wonderful and really can't wait to get back here! If you are considering, I urge you- just book it! You won't regret it!!!

Clean and comfortable with lots of room and a fabulous view.

  • 5 of 5

We go out of our way to book this unit. It is our 5th time staying here and intend to return as soon as possible. The owners do a great job maintaining the property with frequent updates including comfortable beds and newer appliances. The unit is close to many amenities including the beach, shopping, and restaurants. The view from the balcony will take your breath away!

Great value! Very nice condo.

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very nice with everything anyone could ask for. Clean and comfortable. Ocean front location. Nice views. Very nice grounds and pools. Poolside gas bbq's and a washer & dryer were a real bonus. The refrigerator looked brand new. I would recommend this place to both families and adults.
