About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 7

IMAGINE waking up to the sounds of the ocean crashing against the shore and a gorgeous ocean view that will welcome you to a magnificent Maui morning day after day after day!

IMAGINE being only one sip of a mai-tai away from a spectacular ocean where whales breach from December through April and sunsets take your breath away!

IMAGINE having a heated pool, hot tube, stainless steel BBQ’s, cabana, 12-hole putting green, shuffleboard, koi ponds, beautiful gardens and water features right outside your lanai!

IMAGINE being pampered in a newly remodeled 2 bedroom/2 bathroom ground floor condo, fully stocked with everything could possibly need for the perfect family holiday in paradise!

About Gayle Moss

My husband and I are Canadians that have been coming to Maui every year since 2007; and every year we love it even more than the year before. We eventually hope to retire here, but until then, this is our SECOND little piece of paradise on Papakea to enjoy on our vacation every year.

We hope our home-away-from-home brings you as much joy as it does us. Please do drop us a line and let us know what we can do to make your stay special.

Gayle Moss purchased this condo in 2013

Why Gayle Moss chose Lahaina

We chose Papakea for many reasons:

1. Location: Papakea is on the west coast just north of Lahaina, next to Ka'anapali. Like Baby Bear said, 'It's just right!' because it doesn't get the uncomfortable heat of Lahaina or heavy rains of Kapalua. It's perfect!

2. It has so many recreational facilities and is very family friendly, but it's also great for adults who want quiet and privacy with separate pools and hot tubs for kids and adults.

3. The grounds are kept in immaculate condition.

4. We fell in love with it the moment we saw it.

What makes this condo unique

A 13-acre beachfront oasis of relaxation, Papakea Resort features tropical landscaping with Koi ponds and palm trees located throughout, and is approximately 32 miles from Kahului Airport. Papakea offers several recreational facilities, including two 12-hole putting greens, three tennis courts, shuffleboard, beach activities, and two swimming pools with whirlpools. A fitness center is also available at a neighborhood resort.

Other amenities include free parking, Weber BBQs, dry cleaning services, free WIFI, parking, and an activity desk.

Free yoga and aqua-fit classes as well as weekly putting and tennis tournaments are available.

Everything you could want in a vacation rental is right here. Why go anywhere else?

Better than expected

  • 4 of 5

The pictures don't do this place justice! The rooms and bathrooms are lovely and the condo is much closer to the water than expected. We loved our stay here! Do be aware that the resort charges an extra $17 a day. Worth it, though.

We always stay at the Papakea, perfect location, clean, gorgeous setting. The staff at the front desk COULD be more friendly. However, the dealings were few and far between. Our condo, K105, is beautiful! Well stocked, great location, perfect for my 80 year-old dad. The owner, Gayle, couldn't be sweeter or more responsive! Very happy, relaxed and ready to book our next trip to Maui, Papakea, and K105!

Relaxing, Refreshing, Intimate Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Papakea, Koa Condo 105. The condo was appointed with all the amenities we needed (kitchenware, bathroom towels, beach towels, coolers, umbrella & assorted gear). The kitchen & baths have beautiful granite counter tops. The kitchen, dining & living area is open & spacious. Two televisions are provided, but with the georgous surroundings & amazing ocean view steps from the door, you really don't need it! A benefit to the ground level was being able to walk out the patio door to the grill, pool and pool cabana without the hassle of stairs (however we always had one of our party lock up).

The grounds are well manicured & the way the resort is laid out (2 mirror sides) makes it feel quite intimate. We enjoyed coffee on the lanai every morning with entertainment provided by the birds! The resort offers several activities throughout the week, along with patio shuffleboard.

The location of Papakea is wonderful, easy to get to shopping (Whaler Village, Lahina ) and surrounding beaches. Parking is secure & there is an on-site Conceriege to assist as needed. The check in/out procedures were easy.
