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 Lahaina

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.

WOW! A beautiful gem near Kaanapali Beach

  • 5 of 5

This property deserves the high marks. My husband and I agreed that this was the cleanest, best cared for vacation home we'd ever stayed in. The attention to detail and welcoming touches are impressive. The view is unparalleled. We loved the true ocean front slice of heaven without a busy beach below. Boogie boarding and snorkeling beaches are very close, and the famous Kaanapali Beach is within walking distance. Larisa and Michael thought of every detail including binoculars for whale watching in the harbor. There was all kinds of breaches and whale action to watch from the lanai. Everything inside the condo is like new with high end finishes. This has to be the best-renovated condo in the Papakea resort. Larisa is fantastic to work with and prompt in all communication. Staying at this condo was the BEST decision for our family of four! Thanks, Larisa and Michael for sharing your classy condo!

P.S. It was so great to discover 4 boogie boards, 4 putters for the green around the pool, beach chairs, umbrellas, cooler bags, and all the amenities for play as well as relaxing at the condo. Also, we found that previous guests had left lots of nice sandwich condiments and salad dressings. So, I recommend checking the refrigerator before you go grocery shopping.

This was our third trip to Maui. The previous two visits, we stayed at high end hotels. It was very nice. It was also incredibly busy, populated, very little privacy and nothing felt at home.

This time we decided to go through VRBO and immediately contacted Larissa to find out if their place was available. Just from the pictures and reviews, we knew we had to go for it!

As soon as we arrived, we couldn't believe it!! The pictures, as beautiful as they are, did not do it justice. Oceanfront, gorgeous views, perfect location and the best seat for the amazing sunsets!

The condo is just beautiful! It's decorated beautifully, has all the upgrades and is wonderfully stocked with everything you could possibly need and thensome!! The kitchen, the bedrooms, the bathroom and the patio that we never wanted to leave, is all so beautiful, comfortable and welcoming.

Unfortunately, after we arrived at the airport, we immediately went to ABC and bought rafts, boogie boards and snorkels. Well, we should have waited. They have everything! From boogie boards to games, from snorkels to beach towels and beach chairs.

The location is perfect, as well. It's just minutes away from the best beaches, restaurants and shopping.

Larissa and Michael, thank you once again for opening up your gorgeous home. This was a trip that we will never forget!!!

Better then a 5 star resort!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a more comfortable and welcoming place to stay. The owners had a bottle of wine and chocolates on the kitchen counter ready for us when we arrived, along with a few other items! The kitchen has everything a chef needs. The bedrooms/bathrooms had excellent furnishings with top quality bedding and towels. Going to the beach was easy with the supplies provided by the owner as well. The view could not have been any better everyday, sitting on the Lenai and to top it with seeing the whales! Thank you to Larisa and Michael

We highly recommend this condo! Not just because it’s a great place to stay for a week but because the owners are a class act.

I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E - Hands down the best place within Papakea

  • 5 of 5

I cannot express how incredible this condo and the owners are in just a review. This is an extremely well maintained property that has one of the most beautiful views within the Papakea Resort. We visited Maui for 10 days with 6 other couples for our honeymoon, "friend-cation" and could not of asked for a more exceptional place to stay. This condo has been updated with some of the finest finishes in every room and out of the 4 condos that we had between us and the other couples in building "L", our was the nicest by far. What an incredible place Larisa and Michael!!!

Every night we were blessed with a gorgeous sunset, a beautiful cool Pacific breeze and calming sounds of the waves. On top of just the sheer beauty of this condo, the grounds are so beautifully maintained and the Papakea Resort staff were also hospitable including an excellent trip advisor on staff to help plan memorable experiences. We would love to come back and enjoy this amazing property!

Malaho from Michigan!!!
