About Amy Shipley
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 16 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.

Wonderful lanai right on the ocean!
We really enjoyed our stay at Papakea #A-403. The very best thing was the large lanai, right over the ocean. We looked for whales every morning (saw them twice) and watched turtles right below us every afternoon. There was a nice beach a few minutes walk toward Kanapali, with great snorkeling (but be careful of the current if the waves are rough.) There was also a more protected beach a few minutes walk in the other direction, at the Honukawai park. The unit was well-equipped, with everything we needed for meals and enjoying the beach. We especially appreciated the two sturdy beach chairs. The condo was roomy, and big enough to give everyone a little privacy. There were plenty of beach towels and bath towels, and it was very nice to be able to run them through the laundry. The beds were comfortable, and there were plenty of pillows. The Papakea Resort complex was quiet, the pools were great, and we enjoyed the shuffleboard and mini-golf. The owner communicated well, and was very accommodating when we asked for a late checkout. There is a small shopping center across from the complex with fast/casual food, a great grocery store.
Had a great stay.Our unit was very accommodating. Had everything we need.
The property was emaciated. The pools were great and well keep.
Glad you enjoyed your stay, Luigi! Hope we can host you again some time soon. -Amy
Great condo in great location
We loved our stay in suite A403. The ocean front location was so amazing to have morning coffee and happy hour drinks. The condo itself was great, a bit warm in the loft but easily made up for with the rest of the unit. The resort itself was nice, clean, and had lots to do when needing a day close to home.
We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay in our unit. The ocean front makes for a fabulous view. You'll need to come back at a time when the whales are in season! Thank you for the great review.
Stunning ocean front view from the comfortable lanai
We totally enjoyed our stay in this condo. The view did not disappoint, sandy beach is a short walk away. Loved the grassy area for lounge chairs with ocean front view. The property is immaculate. The pool was also nice. The condo is comfortable and clean . We were there at a hot time of year and the air conditioning had a hard time keeping up.. bedrooms were a bit warm at night. Owners were great to deal with and very accomadating. Overall a great property, we would definitely return.
We're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed the condo, and that you had a great time on the island. We love the Papakea and feel fortunate that we were able to share it with your family. Thank you for the kind review.
Our stay was in April of 2017
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
Thank you for the review, Lourdes. The lanai is fantastic, and we're happy that you enjoyed it as well. Thank you for letting us know about the chairs, we'll get a couple more in there. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Take care.
Great location, comfortable place
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!
Glad to hear you had a great time, Patrick! The balcony is our favourite part as well, and our kids love seeing the turtles. Thank you for the review. Take care, Amy
