About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4, Ocean View, Top Floor

Sunset and surf views on this top floor condo with dramatic vaulted ceilings. We have created a Maui retreat that has maintained the tropical feeling of the islands with an Asian flare. The condo is accented with local art and island furnishings. You can make your morning coffee in the kitchen with a picture perfect view of the ocean. Relax on the private lanai while listening to the waves. Watch the whales, outrigger races, and parasailing from the condo. (All ocean view pictures have been taken from our condo and can be seen from the lanai, living/dining room and kitchen.) We are located in Building B, condo B407.

Both bedrooms have queen beds with adjoining full baths. The Loft Bedroom faces the ocean where you can fall asleep with the sound of the surf. The private master bedroom is level with the main floor where you will awake to the morning sound of tropical birds. The fully equipped kitchen makes it easy to enjoy meals in your island home away from home. The pool-side BBQs are steps away from the building. A washer and dryer are in the unit for your laundry needs. We supply beach towels for your convenience.

Pool, spa, gardens and putting green are just below the condo with expansive lawns, flowering bushes, and numerous palm trees. There is a lovely lawn right up to a break water but there is no beach directly in front of the resort. However, there is a beach next door on the south side of Papakea that is unobstructed and runs straight down to Black Rock and Kaanapali.

The condo is pedestrian friendly with a super market, deli, restaurants, and shops just across the street. Get a local feel of the island with the farmer's market 2 blocks away next to an organic deli. Recreation equipment rental stores are located on the way.

Please note: we cannot have children under 6 as our guests. There are steep steps to the loft bedroom that are not suitable for small children.

We also have our Napa Valley Wine Country Condo - VRBO Listing 225442.

About Virginia Sargent

We are a San Francisco Bay Area family. The condo was purchased as a family getaway by the parents, Van and Donna. Now their daughter, Virginia, is managing the property on VRBO. She also serves on the Papakea Board of Directors homeowner's association. Her full time job is a residential property manager in San Francisco.

As Papakea owners of over 18 years, we are committed to the community. We make several trips a year to enjoy and upgrade our island retreat.

We also have our Napa Valley Wine Country Condo - VRBO Listing 225442, with outstanding reviews.

Virginia Sargent purchased this condo in 2001

Why Virginia Sargent chose West Maui

In 1996, Van and Donna spent Christmas in Maui and fell in love with the island. During their trip, they visited friends in Papakea. Van and Donna saw a beautiful resort with lasting appeal and a family atmosphere. They purchased their first condo in 1997, a one bedroom. After several years of both enjoying and renting it, they wanted a two bedroom so the family could stay with them. In 2001, a top floor unit became available in a desirable area and they purchased it. In 2005, Van and Donna celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary at Papakea with 35 relatives staying at the resort for a week. They had children, grandchildren, siblings and cousins from all over the United States and Canada to enjoy the special ambiance that is Papakea.

What makes this condo unique

If you want a relaxing, beautiful environment that has a friendly, laid back feel as your Maui retreat, Papakea is for you. What we love about this resort are the beautiful gardens, the sunsets and views of the neighboring islands. It has a feeling of spaciousness with the low rise buildings and lush gardens.

Whales and Sunsets

  • 5 of 5

Normally I stay at this condo in March. This year we came in February. The whale watching seemed to be better - more of them including a sighting of a fully breached whale - a memory of a lifetime. We had sunny and cloudy weather, but it was enjoyable regardless - the clouds made for some dramatic sunsets. My friend stayed in the downstairs bedroom and really liked the new mattress the owners put in. This is our second year of enjoying the new kitchen - so easy for two people to work in. We hope to continue our annual stay!

Perfect location!

We loved staying at your condo you were an absolute lovely lady to talk to and made it so easy for us. Best view off your lanai, we enjoyed watching the whales from it. Our family of 4 was very comfortable there. Thank you again for letting us enjoy your piece of paradise :)

Perfect location and view.

  • 4 of 5

This was our third time staying at Papakea and we were not disappointed in condo B407. The view and location were perfect and the condo was well appointed. We love this resort and will continue to book our Maui vacations at Papakea.

Beautiful and peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place to stay in West Maui! Our condo was on the top floor (4th) so quiet with a beautiful view of the pool and ocean. This condo had everything we needed to be comfy for the week. Didn't even need the AC with the cool breezes. Good food close as well as a small supermarket. No beach at the property but within walking distance. We will be back!

The Perfect Maui Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to the Papakea Resort for my husband and I. This condo was excellent in every way. The view from the lanai was amazing, the kitchen was very well equipped with a huge selection of pots, pans etc. The beds were very comfortable and the breeze coming in was enough to cool the place off. We never used the air conditioner once. We were with my mother(81) and she enjoyed going for walks all around the resort and beyond by herself and enjoyed meeting people and workers. They were all very friendly towards her. The pool area was very well maintained, bbq's were cleaned daily for our use, and the grounds were looked after meticulously. What we really liked was that we were within walking distance to the Farmers Market which had lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and also a variety of home made items. The concierge services were very helpful in setting up our 5 tours. We all enjoyed them. Grocery shopping was close by, we did rent a car for our stay and loved going to the Outlet Mall in Lahaina as well as shopping on Front Street. We would highly recommend Papakea Resort especially your condo. It was a home away from home. We would not hesitate to stay at your condo in the future. Loved everything about it. Thank you!!!

We had such a wonderful time staying here. My husband and I travel to Maui multiple times a year and this time we brought our older friends. It was a great birthday trip for our travel buddy who just turned 70.

We couldn't have asked for a more amazing view from the condo. Waking up here every morning actually made it difficult to want to leave the resort. I'm not sure how Virginia hasn't just moved here full time!

Virginia was amazing to work with from the time I booked the condo to the time we checked out. She was helpful and very easy to contact. We will DEFINTELY be visiting again in the near future!
