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.

A Cut Above - Luxurious, Clean and Beautiful Unit and View

  • 5 of 5

An exceptionally responsive and organized owner to deal with. This is an extremely well maintained property that clearly illustrates pride of ownership with extremely nice finishes (granite throughout), beautiful wood trim, nice choice of ceramics and very tasteful and comfortable bed and furnishings. Everything you need to have a comfortable and relaxing stay is included. Larissa makes sure the people who get to enjoy her unit have everything they need. Even the little things are thought of. For example, instead of signing out putters to use on the properties' putting green Larissa provides 4 putters for you (and they are labeled so they aren't easily misplaced). Need ziplocks for your trip to the beach? You're covered and they are felt pens for labeling them too. Everything you need for a day at the beach is looked after (beach chairs with compartments, boogie boards, umbrellas). Honestly, staying here felt more like visiting with friends than renting from a stranger. That's just the physical unit and the amenities.

Then of course there is the view. You are no more than 100 ft from the ocean and can hear the surf pound the beach as it drains the stress of your worklife away. The sunsets are spectacular and can be enjoyed with the privacy of the lanai with a glass of wine or your favorite cocktail in your hand.

We spent 3 weeks exploring Maui and our stay at the Papakea was definitely one of favorite places to stay and would stay in this exact same unit in a heartbeat. Thanks for everything Larissa!

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!

Great, lovely apartment in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is spacious and very nicely decorated. With a balcony on the ocean where you can see sunsets to die for! Extremely well equipped ,with everything and anything you may need. Comfortable rooms, TV ,,cable...all the kitchen appliances and needs you may have. We had a lovely time !!!!!!. Also location is wonderful , you can get to most exciting parts of Lahaina very quickly. We also requested some extended hours because our flight was leaving late that evening and Larissa and Michael were kind enough to let us stay half more day so we wouldn't be roaming the streets of Lahaina ......Thank you very much Michael and Larissa your place is beautiful and we would definitely come back or recommend to family and friends. Aloha and Mahalo
