About the Property

Oceanfront Studio Condo with soothing surf sounds and great views

Our condo is unit A206 - a renovated direct oceanfront studio condominium. The A building is located at the north end of the Papakea complex and is one of the quietest and most private buildings in the complex. The building is located adjacent to parking and this second floor unit can be accessed via elevator or by stairs. Complimentary luggage carts are provided in each building for guest use. The unit is a short walk to one of the two pools and hot tubs in the complex, a putting green, and shuffleboard court. Surrounding each of the two pools are 6 gas-fired Weber BBQ units.

Although there are many excellent restaurants in West Maui, our personal dinner preference is to grill some fresh local fish on one of the pool-side BBQ's while watching an awesome Maui sunset. The condo is well equipped with all utensils to do so including plastic ware for the pool area.

Unlike some studio condominiums at Papakea which utilize a pull down wall mounted Murphy bed, our unit features a traditional queen sized bed, so you can comfortably drift off to sleep to the sound of the surf. A washer and dryer are included, and we also supply all linens, including beach towels.

The unit is tastefully decorated in a Hawaiian theme, and is perfect for a romantic couple getaway. The lanai includes a table with chairs and a direct view of Molokai and the whales (in season). The unit is air conditioned, however there is generally an ocean breeze blowing, and between that and the ceiling fan we seldom find use for the air conditioner, except in the hottest of the summer months. Entertainment includes a wall mounted high definition flat screen television with cable programming and a DVD/BluRay/CD player. There is an Internet WiFi hot spot located in the unit.

The Papakea resort was constructed when Maui resort development was in its infancy, and consists of 11 four story low rise buildings spread over 13 landscaped acres. Only 3 of the 11 Papakea buildings are actual oceanfront buildings, and our unit is located in one of those buildings. The Papakea resort is within walking distance to groceries, shops, restaurants, bars, and even a local farmers market. Papakea used to have a beach in front of the complex, however mother nature removed it during a storm many years ago. Today there is a seawall and a large grassy area with plenty of chaise lounges for sunbathing and sunset watching, with a beautiful public beach approximate 100 yards to the south of the complex for ocean swimming and snorkeling.

Please come and share our little piece of Maui paradise.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We reside in a suburb of Portland OR. Roberta is a full time artist, while Doug is an IT manager for a major healthcare provider.

Why the Owner Chose Lahaina, HI, USA:
We first visited Papakea on our honeymoon in 1991 and quickly fell in love with the resort. Although we visited other Hawaiian resorts, as well as Mexico, Thailand, and Australia over the years, we were always drawn back to Papakea, and finally purchased our own little piece of paradise in 2011.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Papakea was constructed when Maui resort development was in its infancy, and thus consists of 11 four story low rise buildings spread over 13 landscaped acres. Only 3 of the 11 Papakea buildings are actual oceanfront buildings, and our unit is located in one of those buildings where you can drift off to sleep to the sound of the ocean waves. Papakea used to have a beach in front of the complex, however mother nature removed it during a storm many years ago. Today there is a seawall and a large grassy area with plenty of chaise lounges for sunbathing and sunset watching, with a beautiful public beach approximate 100 yards to the south of the complex for ocean swimming and snorkeling.
