About The Owner

We are Debbie & Keith with girls Amy, Rebecca and Corah from Alberta. After years of traveling to hot spots around the world the ladies asked why we had never been to Hawaii. The answer was ' the first time we vacation in Hawaii we'll never go anywhere else'. After a vacation to Maui and the Papakea 8 years ago we've never been anywhere else.

We're now able to share or home away from home with new and old friends all year long. The Papakea feels as good or better than home everytime we return and we're sure you'll feel the same way.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Our stay was in April of 2017

  • 5 of 5

The best thing about this condo is the view. We enjoyed sitting outside in the Lanai looking at the ocean and beautiful sunsets as well as the occasional turtles. The condo itself was comfortable for the amount of people we had. We stopped at the COSTCO close to the airport and stocked up on food for the kitchen and cocktails.

We traveled with another couple and with two 20 year olds who slept in the loft bedroom. Location of the condo is within walking distance of beautiful beaches and other resorts. Thanks for the information sheet provided on things to do and close by stores and restaurants. It was very helpful. The resort is almost too quiet at the pool areas and could've used some nice Hawaiian or background music to make it more lively.

We took one of your folding chairs to the beach and when we opened it up the seat cloth was ripped. The chair was thrown away so you could probably use 2 more new chairs since the remaining one is aging.

Thanks for a fabulous stay in your condo, we would book it again if we return to Maui in the future. L. Schmidt

Great location, comfortable place

  • 5 of 5

You could spend the entire time out on the balcony, the view and the breeze never get old. Easily spot turtles everyday. Complex very quiet and accomodating. Rooms were large and the loft was nice, although the stairs would not be recommended for littler ones. Would definitely stay again!

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

The property was just perfect for our family! It was spacious and very clean. We appreciated being able to do laundry right in the condo and the opportunity to cook. The kitchen was filled with all the necessities. They provided beach towels, boogie boards and a cooler which was very helpful when traveling! We also were able to see whales out our back patio which was a total surprise! We had a lovely experience and would stay there again! Thank you!

Great location. Clean condo.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our 3 kids, our friends, and their two kids. The loft held all 5 kids, with the girls bunking on the floor and the boys in the 2 beds. The condo had everything we needed, as promised. All we needed was food and toiletries. Full bed was tough to sleep on and shower head in hall bath needs to be replaced. Kitchen outlets didn't work most of the time. We ate almost all meals at the condo, including bbqing down at the pool. So great!!

The size, view, accommodations, were all amazing! We loved it and would recommend it to any family.

Farmers market and fish market are fantastic, and one block down. Slappy Cakes was a couple blocks down and tons of fun. Grocery store right down the street too.

Perfect accomdations for our two familes with an AMAZING view!

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 7 who travel together often (4 adults and 3 teenagers). This was our second trip to Maui and we wanted to stay on another part of the island than were we had been before. We loved the location of this condo and found it to be a good value because of the location, the view, the fact that it sleeps 7+ and the amenities at the resort. There are many stores and services within walking distance however we did not feel as though we were in an urban area at all. The resort is well laid out and the option of the two pools was great (one heated and one not). We also enjoyed going in the hot tubs in the evening.

Some of the best beaches for our active group are a short drive away (DT Flemming to boogie board and watch surfing, Napili and Kapalua for swimming and snorkeling and Black Rock for just about anything beach related)

The master bedroom and attached bathroom are spacious. The guest bedroom and the other bathroom are quite comfortable and the loft upstairs suited the 3 teenagers well. It had space for all of their belongings and the two siblings slept in the double bed and their cousin slept in the single bed.

The kitchen is well equipped and it opens up to the living room area. We cooked all of our own meals and enjoyed our quiet evenings back at the condo after our full days of outdoor activities.

The living room seats 4 people comfortably. The view from the lanai is amazing and watching the whales each morning while drinking my coffee was a definite highlight. The lanai is a little cramped but there are tables and chairs out there for 6.

Checking in was easy, and even though we got in very late, everything was efficient and well organized for us to get settled.

The owner's were easy to work with and they responded quickly when I had questions about anything leading up to our holiday.

I would definitely stay here again on another trip to Maui.
