Why Bree Gunkle chose West Maui

We completely just feel in love with the property from our very first visit!

What makes this condo unique

We just love the floorplan of the unit. You have an ocean view from the living area and the master bedroom. There is a limited amount of units at the Papakea that has this floorplan. Between that and the gourmet kitchen we were sold!

Perfect Condo and Location

  • 4 of 5

We decided on this condo due to it's location to all the activities we enjoy when visiting Maui. We were pleasantly surprised by how comfortable the condo was and the resort as well. Loved waking up to the ocean views every day. The condo had some nice upgrades and the kitchen was easy to work in. Parking close to door was never a problem no matter how late you got in for the night. The resort was nice and quiet, perfect for a relaxing getaway and within walking distance of many fun places to eat, grocery shop, or just to grab a few souvenirs. Most of the Island's top snorkeling beaches are just a short drive away. We tried out different beaches every day, the condo also has very comfortable beach chairs to use as well as snorkeling equipment. We brought our own but a nice touch for those who don't. I will definitely attempt to stay here again in a year or so when I am able to make it back.

10 days in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo at Papakea! We shared this condo with another couple. It was just like the pictures - the kitchen is well equipped with everything you would need. King size bed in master bedroom is very comfortable. We enjoyed the yoga and water aerobics. View is amazing!! I walked on Kannapali beach several times and really enjoyed the proximity to Papakea. We shopped in Lahaina and drove to sunrise at Mount Haleakala. We booked 3 excursions with Expedia at the front desk and we were very happy - Dinner Cruise, Royal Lahaina Luau and Road to Hana.

Stalying at the resort in Kaanapali

  • 4 of 5

Our 7 days were fine. Nice view on the ocean but we can't take avantage of the beach front because we can't have access directly. All the commodities are there.. everything. The site is very well maintain. Nice pool and hot tub and 6 BBQ around for outside cooking. The region north of Kaanapali is gorgeos!! Our condo is okay for 4 peoples but the general maintenance is average. I recommand this location. Aloha!

Unparalleled view and super clean!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at the Papakea resort in Maui and we were delighted with this unit. The view was simply stunning and truly under-represented in the listing. The grounds and the pool/BBQ area are meticulously kept and provide a wonderful place to spend the days. The master bedroom has a full unobstructed panoramic view of the ocean! The unit was exceptionally clean and was well-stocked with beach gear, extra towels and bathroom necessities. The updated kitchen was very well-stocked and we appreciated the little extras like garbage bags, dishwasher detergent and a few basic condiments in the fridge. These little touches really made our stay very special. Our belated request for a late check-out was accommodated straight away, which allowed us to enjoy our last day to the max! We would certainly return to this unit under Maui Beach Properties management, as we had a great experience and appreciated the attention to small details.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

You never know sometimes how things will turn out, but we can gladly say this unit was all it was described and more. The unit itself is very nicely upgraded with a Subzero fridge and top quality kitchen appliances. Very roomy and comfortable. The resort staff was very helpful, even reading the fine print on my phone confirmation to get the room key code. It was hard to see at 2:00 in the morning after all day travel!

No worries about the room or property being an outdated 80s timeshare. The grounds are meticulously kept and pool area cleaned and serviced often. It wasn't long untI we got a friendly call from the front desk asking us to remove towels that were hung over the railing to dry. Attention to detail like that keeps the resort looking nice. The putting green in the center of the resort is maintained in true course quality.

The unit has a beautiful view of the ocean and pool area with beach access right off the property. There were boogie boards and snorkeling masks included. Just a very nice, completely equipped unit.

The reservation agent, Bree was also very helpful and quick to communicate from booking throughout our stay. She also allowed a late checkout at no charge since no one was coming into the room the following day.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in Maui at this complex and this unit far surpassed our previous rental and expectations! The unit was spotless, updated and very comfortable. The location of the bedrooms and bathrooms allowed for space and privacy for renters since they are situated at opposite ends of the unit. The view from the lanai is lovely and we enjoyed many meals there. Unfortunately, our last week there we had renters in the next unit which eliminated privacy on the lanai since it was so close. This unit is very close to the pool which always has a lot of activity but it was always quiet after 10:00 pm. It was wonderful to go to sleep each night with the sounds and breezed from the ocean! Working with Bree, Dave and Chris was great! They were all extremely helpful, attentive to our needs and great to work with. Our only complaint about our entire vacation is we returned home to cold and snow! We should have stayed longer and are already planning to return next year!
