About the property

Note: The owners of this unit own another condo on the same floor, L-202, so they can be booked together for larger groups and families.

Welcome to Papakea! Located between the Kaanapali and Kapalua world-class golf resorts and minutes from shops, museums, restaurants, and galleries in nearby Lahaina and Whalers Village, Papakea is a 13 acre oceanfront resort with the true aloha feeling of Maui.

There are two private pools, two Jacuzzi's, direct beachfront access, a cabana, three lighted tennis courts, two shuffleboard courts, two 18-hole putting greens, Koi ponds, lush gardens, and 12 outdoor barbecues. The resort also has an Activity Desk. For the sports enthusiast, the golf courses of Kapalua and Kaanapali are nearby and so are beaches great for snorkeling and boogie-boarding. Alternatively, take your time walking the miles of soft sand beaches.

Our condo is fully remodeled and re-furnished with granite counters, a plasma TV, the works!

Our second floor 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo is directly oceanfront with its own private lanai in the sought after 'L' Building. Nothing but blue sky and ocean! One of the rare 2bd/2ba units where the Master Bedroom faces the ocean. The unit is air-conditioned and also has ceiling fans in all the bedrooms. We offer free wireless Internet access. Sip a cocktail on the lanai and enjoy the beautiful views of the neighboring islands of Lanai and Molokai. Parking is close to the building, and both elevator and stairs are located close-by.

The living area has ample seating, as well as satellite TV, VCR/DVD player, and a stereo with CD player. There is a table with seating for four on the private lanai. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, cooking utensils, dishwasher, refrigerator, oven, microwave, and coffee maker. The unit also has its own washer and dryer.

As renters ourselves for years, we have tried to think of everything possible from our experiences to make your stay comfortable. The oceanfront Master Bedroom has a king size bed and plenty of dresser and closet space. It has a full ocean view and the bathroom has a shower/tub and separate vanity area.

The second bedroom also has a king sized bed and plenty of closet space. The bathroom has a walk-in shower and separate vanity area.

There is a queen sized pull-out sofa in the living room for extra guests.

All linens including beach towels are provided.

About Melenie

Dana and Robin

We are from Oklahoma and absolutely love coming to the Papakea in Maui. You will too.

Melenie purchased this condo in 2010

Why Melenie chose Lahaina

We have traveled the world including every continent except Antarctica and our favorite place in the whole world is the ocean-front at Papakea. So we bought a condo there.

What makes this condo unique

We love getting up in the morning, making a cup of hot tea, and sitting on our Lanai. We just read or gaze out over the blue waters and the full views of Molokai and Lanai and enjoy the ocean breeze and the sounds of the surf some 30 feet from us. The place has everything we need, pools, and tennis. We like making our own breakfast and lunch, and then we go out to dinner every night. There are tons of great restaurants just a short drive from the place. Nobody comes to bother you unless you ask them to.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Beautiful unit with all the normal expected amenities and then some!! Love the location and fact that it's right on the ocean. Took a couple of nights to get used to the waves crashing. Pool area is great, loved the hot tub/pool combo. Never seemed crowded while we were around the pool. Spent most afternoons, from 1:00-5:00pm poolside or on the beach.

Total experience is very "kid friendly" - our daughters loved it.

We will definitely be back. Great 9 days, thank you very much!!

Mahalo -

Wonderful Condo in a Fabulous Setting

  • 5 of 5

This gorgeous condo is well furnished and has every utensil and pot you need. They even had binoculars. We are two couples who did a lot of cooking while staying for a week. One of us loved to cook using fresh Maui produce and fish. The lanai is so close to the ocean that we ate most of our meals there, watching whales and birds and surfers. The Papakea is a lovely resort with nice hot tubs and grounds. It is next door to the Ka'anapoli beach and walking distance from a super market, health food store and a fresh fish market.

Completely Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our friends for their b-day to Maui and after hours upon hours I choose this beautiful condo. We absolutely thought it was perfect. They thought of every need and met it. It was stocked and well maintained. It was located ideally between everthing you could do, golf, snorkling, hiking, shopping. We will be back and our friends are allready planning their next family vacation. Thank you all.

The property is very nice and comfortable. Great views from the lanai. We stayed in this unit 4 years ago and enjoyed it so much that we just needed to return. We plan on staying here again in 2019.

We had an amazing vacation and staying in this condo played a big part in that. It's located in a quiet area. Very clean, very well equipped, spacious, nicely decorated, beautiful and well maintained grounds, and most importantly, the spectacular view! We ate most of our meals out on the lanai - no restaurant could offer us a view like that - the ocean, colourful rainbows in the morning, and beautiful sunsets.

There is a beach just a few minutes walking south of the condo. We enjoy walking so we often made our way to the Ka'anapali North beach (near the Eldorado) which took about 20-25 minutes - water is so clear, turquoise blue, and you can snorkelling at the end along the sea wall - we saw turtles, beautiful fish, interesting fish, and what we think was an octopus!

We also walked the "Beach Walk" which is a path that brings you to Ka'anapali Beach/Black Rock/Whaler's Village. This takes approximately 40-45 minutes (one way) but it's a nice walk along the water.

This condo is conveniently located near grocery stores, farmers market, and eateries - the Fish Market is a must! Great ( and inexpensive) breakfast at Ono Kau Kau Mixed Plate just outside of the resort!

It was a wonderful 3 weeks!!

Thanks Robin and Dana for sharing your beautiful place with us, and thanks to Melanie and Christine for facilitating our booking and stay!

Beautiful unit with great floorpan, views and access.

Great spot to watch the whales and monk seal, and listen to crashing waves.

Friendly community.

Beach is accessible, but not long.
