About Randy and Jennifer McNamee

We are Jennifer and Randy McNamee from the central coast of California. We loved Maui so much we decided to purchase a condo there we could visit as often as we wanted. Maui is such a magical place and the minute we arrive we feel rejuvenated and renewed. We love Papakea so much, we love that it is uncrowded and so green and gorgeous. We are a modern day 'Brady Bunch' we have six children between us 4 boys and 2 girls ages 11-25 who love Maui as much as we do. We love to visit Maui swim, snorkel,play and reconnect as a family.

Randy and Jennifer McNamee purchased this condo in 2013

Why Randy and Jennifer McNamee chose West Maui

Papakea was the first property my husband and I ever stayed at in Maui. We loved that it was not only beautiful and serene it felt much less busy and not as crowded as other resorts. We loved that we could cook in the condo or bbq by the pool. We also liked that Papakea had everything we needed and a lot of times we don't even leave the property. We also loved that world class restaurants, shopping and beaches were all less than ten minutes away. Papakea like Maui is magical.

What makes this condo unique

I fell in love with this condo immediately. We looked at fancier locations and busier locations and even some smaller properties. When I sat on the couch and was able to look out at the beautiful green tropical gardens and the gorgeous ocean I knew this was a place I wanted to be. I love that we can play shuffleboard, tennis, golf, swim in the pool or ocean all before noon! The people that visit Papakea always seem to be extra friendly and the weekly free Mai Tai party is an added bonus.

Family friendly place. We had an amazing time!

  • 5 of 5

D108 - I love how its close to parking, reception and the ABC store. Close to swimming pool area and the sea wall. It is veru conveniently located. Complete kitchen appliances so we didn't miss home cooked meals that much and saved some money in the process. It has washer and dryer so we didn't have to pack as much clothes. Having a walk out lanai, I enjoyed having my tea while watching the kids play golf. I highly recommend this place. Will book here again in the future!

Great condo, horrible property management and security staff

  • 3 of 5

First of all the condo unit itself and the owners are awesome. The bunk bed was great for our boys, there were lots of boogie boards and pool noodles and golf putters, a cooler with wheels, board games and other toys for our kids to use, there was even a fishing rod. The problem was the security staff, they literally followed us around and told us "the rules" and there were a lot of rules! It got to the point where I had to send an email to the condo owners to let them know that it was starting to ruin our vacation. They in turn emailed the security supervisor and it got a little better after that. I get that there needs to certain rules to keep the place nice and not disturb others but when the rules are so many that it makes it not a fun place to be, what's the point of staying there? I think the problem is that the older people that are there don't like kids and the security staff and management caters to them more. If that is the case, the just advertise it as an senior adult complex only. If it wasn't for the security staff, the place would have been perfect. The grounds are beautiful and there's a great putting green and the sunsets are awesome off the sea wall. There would be fantastic fishing off the sea wall, if it wasn't against "the rules" to do it, never mind that at 06:00 am there's really no one around to be "bothered" by someone fishing.

The property could use some paint & new carpet. That aside it was fine for the two of us.

The property is very well maintained. There are gardens everywhere & it's all beautifully kept. Pools are clean & koi ponds are beautiful. Really enjoyed our stay!

Perfect for a small family

  • 5 of 5

With bunkbeds, a tiny bath, and a view of the entire garden, this was the perfect unit for our family of four (ages 3 and 6). The unit was clean and spacious. We had a tremendous time.

An ideal place to stay at Papakea Resort

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I are retired seniors who stayed Dec. 3-14 at Randy and Jennifer's condo at Papakea Resort. This was our fourth year in a row at the resort but our first stay in this particular unit, which we decided is the best one for us. We found it to be clean with a well-equipped kitchen, nice appliances and lovely decorator touches all around. The king bed was comfortable and the flat-screen TV worked fine on the few occasions we used it. Best of all, the ground-floor location of the unit was a huge plus for us, making it so easy to come and go. Our only glitch turned out to be quite minor: the clothes dryer quit working (blown fuse) but Randy and Jennifer got a workman to fix it within minutes of our reporting the problem. Very impressive! We also appreciated that the resort's Wi-Fi service has been greatly improved since our previous visits. We will definitely return to Papakea Resort and try to book this same unit if at all possible. Thanks! AAAAAAAA++++++++
