About Larisa and Michael Mancini

We are a family of three that enjoy traveling, outside activities, diving and snorkeling in warm tropical waters. Our dream has always been to own a home in a tropical location. We are blessed to have been able to make this dream come true!

Larisa and Michael Mancini purchased this condo in 2013

Why Larisa and Michael Mancini chose West Maui

We have been coming to Papakea Resort since our daughter was a year old. We have always loved the kindness and of the staff, as well as the ample opportunities for activities all within a short distance from the resort. We love the abundance of tropical plants filling the landscape. We enjoy strolling along one of the many meandering paths, watching koi swimming along in the pond or taking a yoga class in the cabana while listening to the waves crashing near by. And we never tire of watching sunset after sunset from the water's edge or from our lanai. We hope you find it as captivating as we do.

What makes this condo unique

Oceanfront, 180 degree unobstructed view, completely remodeled and refurnished. A surf lullaby awaits you!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Larisa and Michael,

Thank you for letting us stay at your wonderful condo here at Papakea Resort! It was perfect for our family of 4. The condo is decorated beautifully and had every amenity we could have asked for from a gourmet kitchen to beach chairs and sand toys for the beach. Our children kept calling this place "home"! We saw a rainbow and a sunset everyday from the lanai and enjoyed eating our breakfast to the sound of the ocean waves. We particularly enjoyed all the activities in the area...especially the beach next door and Kapalua Bay, where we spent time playing in the sand and snorkeling. Molokini was also amazing and we would recommend the Pacific Whale Foundation to anyone for the tour.

Perfect unit, great low-key resort, in cozy area of Kaanapali

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th time in Maui each time I go through an exhaustive search to find just the right one. We were a group of 6 in 2 units. I really wanted an ocean front unit, since my original intent was to come during peak whale season. Many of the newer resorts offer ocean views but are set back a good distance from the ocean. This unit was wonderful for many reasons: 1) truly oceanfront (my husband joked we were on cruise ship) 2) recently remodeled 3) luxury amenities such as towels, dinnerware, cooking utensils/pots and pans 4) beach items 5) easy access to stairs, elevator, parking. This condo is fully loaded;. the owners have really thought though every possible item one might need, down to the sharpie pen to label the sandwich baggies.

The resort itself is a perfect size and is family oriented. However, we were all adults, no children and felt completely comfortable. We stayed in one day and were amazed at how quiet it was. Resort is impeccably maintained with manicured lawns and lovely foliage. Koi ponds add to the serenity. We used the BBQ one day and ate in the covered hut area adjacent to pool which also overlooks the ocean.

There is a Time super market within walking distance (but take car to haul the groceries), easy access to great beaches, restaurants and West Maui activities. One couple checked out a day earlier than we did, and headed to the Wailea Resort (Waldorf Astoria) for 2 nights. We visited with them and although the property was amazing, we were happy to return to the Papakea. I do recommend visiting Wailea Beach if you have the's an amazing beach!

Our activities included whale watching (though end of season, we saw 1 very active whale – Pacific Whale Foundation), surfing lessons at Kaanapali (not enough waves), beaching at Kaanapali and Napili (wonderful beaches), road to Hana (owner provides CD) Luau at the Hyatt (great show, so so food) and Burnin Love Elvis tribute (which we thoroughly enjoyed and would totally see again). Group consisted of 1 cool couple in 50's and 2 couples in late 20's.

Restaurants I'd recommend include the Hula Grill (my best fish meal), Café O Lei (in Kihei). If you're in the mood for Chinese, check out the restaurant right outside the resort (to the left). Awesome fried rice (which is a typical breakfast item ) and good Hawaiian Mixed plates and Chinese food items.

This condo was the keystone of a great family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our choice to stay at L303. We loved the view, the kitchen, and the overall facilities of the apartment. There were nice touches as well, like a welcome basket and some shopping bags we could borrow.

We did NOT want to pay for a fancy pool with poolside service and lots of activities - we just wanted a place where we could comfortably retire at the end of the day, easily grab groceries, enjoy the moonset in the morning, enjoy a simple, relaxed breakfast, and then head out each day. We also enjoyed a few evenings when we came home and enjoyed the sunset while we ate leftovers from one of the earlier evenings.

The complex itself was fine - there's a decent-looking pool that we actually never used, some putting greens, and some fish pools.

The only possible downside is if you want to actually walk out to the beach - the beach was washed away from storms last year so getting into the ocean requires walking 100 yards or so to a neighboring property. That was fine for us - we wanted to venture each day to a different place anyway, and enjoyed the peace and quiet from there NOT being crowds immediately outside the window.

The hosts were VERY responsive to questions.

If this fits your itinerary and your family's size, do consider staying here!

Absolutely Perfect!! Look No Further!

  • 5 of 5

I looked and looked for a condo that was not "dated" with typical Hawaiian decor, and when I saw Larisa and Michael's home, I knew I found it! It's beautiful! Literally feel like you are on top on the ocean! Third floor unit with private entrance, (some have doors right across from each other-we always felt shoes and things were safe outside.) Everything you could possibly need as well as lots of personal touches. The welcome gift of chocolates, wine, and coffee was a happy surprise! The location is perfect. Easy walk to the store and Slappy Cakes for breakfast. Plenty of linens. Soft cushy towels. The washer and dryer was great to use. Beautiful granite, lovely cabinets, all updated and new. Big stainless fridge, and a wine cooler too! The stove looks brand new, and I'm sure it's nice, but we didn't use it! (It's vacation after all!) Wake up, grab your coffee and watch the sun come up on the awesome lanai. Soon saw whales, a rainbow one morning. We left the doors open most all the time. Perfect breezes! There is A/C if you need it. We loved hearing the waves at night! The Master is en suite. Big vanity! (Thank you Larisa for opting for one sink and leaving a huge counter space! Good call!) Lovely shower! The second bath equally as nice. The closet in the Master has all your items for the beach. Chairs, boogie boards, a box full of sand toys and even a snorkel and mask. Cooler and bags too. Don't forget to take bags to the grocery store! They don't have the plastic bags on the island at all. Lots of books, cards, games etc. They do an amazing job on the property. The railings and steps were always clean. The landscaping and grounds are beautiful! Two pools. We favored lying out in the grass in front of the building. All you can hear are the waves. The pool, although nice, you tend to hear the children more. Super nice over in the grassy area. The property at night is pretty quiet. We rarely heard neighbors. This home is lovingly taken care of. We followed all instructions on care and use and enjoyed our stay immensely!! Would go back in a heart beat!! Larisa is easy to reach and answers emails promptly. Was a joy to work with! Thank you so much for sharing your home!! Until next time!! Mahalo!

Larisa's and Michael's condo is simply fabulous! From the cleanliness to the thoughtful touches and boundless amenities, we had a truly wonderful stay. The view from the lanai is breathtaking and we will certainly miss it! I would definitely recommend this rental without reservation.

Whale watching from the lanai

  • 5 of 5

What a beautifully arranged, appointed, and equipped property! Of course, the best part for us was sitting on the lanai, especially over breakfast, looking for and invariably spotting lots of whale activity. Bring binoculars!
