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.

Remodeled, well stocked property

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our family vacation to Maui. Our large group of 21 each rented their own condo unit at Papakea for their families. We chose to rent this property based on the photos and the reviews. We rented the BEST one! The condo has been newly remodeled making it clean and current. The owners have done an excellent job stocking the condo with everything you need. Boogie boards, beach towels and chairs, umbrellas, and even sand toys! The kitchen was so well stocked too. We made lunches to take to the beach and Ziplocs were readily available for us to use, along with a cooler bag.

I would highly recommend this unit to anyone who is thinking of staying in Papakea.

Absolutely Gorgeous

  • 4 of 5

My Husband, Stepson and I were in the Condo in Maui for 6 days. It was perfect. Very tastefully decorated. We had everything we needed in the Condo. I have been coming to Maui since I was 8 years old and I would highly recommend this beautiful Condo to anyone. Papakea is a quiet resort. Stores are close by and the beach is just 30 steps give or take away.

Thank you for providing this opportunity.

Sunsets and Ocean Breezes !!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four's first visit to Maui was greatly enhance by staying in this luxurious condo. From the minute we walked in the front door we felt pampered by all the attention to detail on what guests to the condo might need. My favorite part was the ocean breezes that flowed through the entire unit, including the bedrooms and the unforgettable sunsets. Our first night we walked to Duke's for dinner, which has a hit and the beach chairs and boggy board at the condo made our beach days so easy. The Papakea Resort Expedia concierge was extremely helpful in planning excursions, helicopter tour, surfing lesion, and snorkeling.

We miss it already and hope we can return some day.

Outstanding home base for a wonderful vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Michael and Larisa for sharing your Maui home with our family. The condo was a perfect home base for our 10 days in Maui. Many hours were spent sitting on the lanai listening to the waves and watching the beautiful sunsets. The condo provides everything needed for a stay and is in excellent condition. The Expedia consultant located at the Papakea resort was very helpful during our time and helped us create some wonderful memories. Mahalo!!

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!
