About The Owner

We are a very active couple so we do lots of walking, hiking, biking, golfing, kayaking and snorkeling. We love the outdoors and all of natures beauty. You can't beat a beautiful sunset in Maui.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2003

Why The Owner chose West Maui

We started vacationing in Hawaii in 1986 and visited every island throughout the years. In 1991 we rented a unit at the Papakea Resort and fell in love with the beautiful tropical grounds and friendly people. From that point on whenever we went to another island we really missed the Papakea atmosphere and longed to be back there. We dreamed of owning a place at the Papakea and in 2003 our dreams came true and we were able to buy our piece of paradise. We feel very fortunate to own it and would love to share that feeling with you.

What makes this condo unique

While staying at the property we enjoy the putting greens, tennis courts, swimming in the pool and walking around the grounds taking pictures of all the flowers and ponds.. Our favorite thing to do is go out during the evening to the ocean front lounge chairs and just relax, listen to some music on our iPods and enjoy the stars and planets and view the milky way.

Killer ocean view!

  • 5 of 5

Shirley and Rick are wonderful hosts with a well stocked and beautifully decorated condo just minutes away from one of the best snorkeling beaches in the state and we know because we live in Kona on the Big Island!

They provide snorkel gear, beach towels, chairs, condiments in the fridge and cupboards, it's like home and we can't wait to come back!!!

There are lots of places to eat or you can do all your grocery shopping just up the street👍

Loved our visit....did I mention gorgeous sunsets on the ocean every night!!

Another amazing stay at Papakea...

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time staying at the Papakea Resort, and we will be back again! Rick and Shirley's place was perfect for our stay! I loved the view of the Koi Ponds and ocean, and enjoyed my coffee from the lanai each morning. It was so nice to have umbrellas, beach chairs and boogie boards that were provided in the room. I can't say enough about this place; beautiful, relaxing and affordable. Thanks again for your hospitality!

Wonderful Clean Condo

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at your condo and really appreciated how well stocked it was.

The personalized welcome note was a nice touch and made us feel welcome after a long day getting there. We made good use of the snorkelling equipment and the boogie boards. Rick and Shirley were very easy to deal with and their condo was very clean and comfortable.

Rick Lantz's condo, Maui, Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at many VRBO properties. This has to be one of the best value for dollars. Rick was absolutely great to deal with from start to finish. If you are looking for marble sinks and granite counter tops, this may not be the place for you. If you are looking for great accommodation with absolutely everything you need or could want, then this is definitely the place for you. By contrast, our daughter stayed in this same complex, paid more money, had a phone that didn't work, had a dryer that didn't work, had a toilet that leaked, had a dishwasher that didn't work, and had absolutely nothing by way of staples in her place when she arrived. Rick had some chocolate, and soft drinks and a welcome message waiting on the table when we arrived. Many staples were provided, and this may not always be the case, but we had zip lock bags, mustard, ketchup, bbq sauce, vegetable oil, shampoo, and so much more. Very terrific place to stay. Highly, highly recommend it. I feel like I am slicing my own throat, because this place probably will be booked the next time I want to go there, but really, this is the best value for your dollar. You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay here. I give it five out of five stars.

Loved our vacation at Papakea ! The condo was very clean and confortable. The views of the koi ponds, pool and ocean were beautiful. Loved the sea wall as it was different and the crashing waves against the wall were memorizing. I can't say enough about the Maui Sunsets as I can't imagine they could be more beautiful anywhere else.

Rick and Shirley were always available to answer questions. The condo had plenty of spices and condiments for cooking. The grills by the pool made cooking so relaxing. Mahalo Maui ! and thank you to Rick and Shirley

Can't wait to visit Maui & stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great for our weeklong stay on Maui. Rick & Shirley were awesome. Great communication and they add some personal touches that really take it over the top. My family has been staying at several other places in Papakea over the last few years and they remarked on how great our experience in this unit was. We had some last minute changes that Rick graciously addressed. The kitchen was well stocked and I loved how quiet and peaceful it is at this property. A decent sized grocery store, several restaurants, and some specialty shops are just a short walk away. I loved taking a walk down the boardwalk south of the resort in the mornings with my morning coffee. We look forward to staying again and would whole heartedly recommend this to anyone looking for a couples or family getaway.
