About Larisa 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 Mancini purchased this condo in 2013

Why Larisa 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 Wonderful Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Larisa and Michael! We absolutely loved our stay in your beautiful Hawaiian home. It’s such a great location and quieter than other resorts we walked past along the beachwalk. The sound of the ocean close by was soothing and wonderful to wake up to every morning. The view from the lanai was fantastic and the condo furnishings were first rate. We watched whales jumping and splashing about from the condo everyday and some of them were very close to shore.

The condo was exceptionally clean when we arrived and we were very impressed with the well stocked kitchen. There was a nice welcome package waiting for us and lots of starter items available in the kitchen and bathrooms. An ABC store was only a few minutes’ walk away and I was amazed with their large selection of items. Everything we could have needed was easily within walking distance of the condo and if we were there only to relax for a week we wouldn’t have even needed to drive our rental car again until it was time to go back to the airport.

The lanai was well protected from the wind and it had a nice table and comfortable chairs to relax in. We sat there for the entire day after our arrival to reboot after a long day of travel and also every morning and evening. This lanai was like a magnet with its fabulous view.

The beachwalk that runs for miles down the beach in front of most of the beachfront resorts starts at this resort very close to (but just far enough away from) this condo. Therefore, there is very little foot traffic in front of the condo compared to neighboring resorts which contributed to a peaceful, quiet and serene setting on the lanai Additionally, being on the third floor we felt comfortable keeping the sliding glass doors open at night (There are screen doors in front of the sliding doors you can lock if you really feel like you need to lock something – but you don’t).

So, if you like being near the ocean where you can see and hear it totally unimpeded in a tropical setting where nobody bothers you and with “to die for” sunsets then this is as good as it gets. We certainly thank so! Absolutely five stars!

Lovely home, well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds/baths, super views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week with our daughter and son-in-law and had a wonderful time. The balcony was great; watching whales in the morning while sipping coffee. There were many good restaurants a short distance from the resort; small grocery store across the street provided ample supplies. It was a great week and being in such a comfortable space was a big part of it.

Papakea Gem

  • 5 of 5

This is an outstanding rental. Beautifully fitted and decorated. The location is A+ for getting to Lahaina and the beaches and any other places on your list. We loved spending the mornings on the lanai sipping coffee and watching the whales do their thing, Wow!

The owners and the manager are terrific: professional and welcoming and easy to get in touch with if needed.

It really ticks all the boxes on your list for a Maui vacation getaway! We highly recommend and look forward to coming back one day. Thank you!

Amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at this condo for the past 5 years. The ocean views are fantastic!

An unobstructed 180 degree view of the waters between Maui, Molokai and Lanai. We enjoy watching the whales from the 3rd floor lanai. This will definitely be our destination for our next trip to Maui.

A Little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This is an amazing property with extensive attention to every detail. We traveled with our two adult children and the second bedroom with two extra long twin beds was just perfect. The owners give very specific instructions about unit care, which we loved, because that's what keeps this place so clean and beautiful. Just plan to treat it like your own and you will thoroughly enjoy. There is not a single negative for us except that the trip had to end!

Enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

This property was beautiful! It was spacious and immaculately clean. It was a super easy check in process, which we were grateful for after a long day of travel. The ocean is literally right outside your balcony. We saw whales one morning and sea turtles. It was amazing. We hope to return to Maui in the near future and plan on staying here.
