About the property

1 Bed 1 Bath Oceanview


Papakea Resort, just 5 minutes from Ka’anapali Golf Courses and 10 minutes from Kapalua Plantation and Bay Courses and Lahaina.

Papakea is a 13 acre oceanfront resort which exudes the magical feeling of Aloha. The complex is comprised of two sets of low-rise buildings, each with its own oceanfront pool area including a spa, a covered cabana and multiple gas barbecues. The resort also has two large 12-hole putting greens, two shuffleboard courts, two tennis courts, gorgeous manicured lawns and lots of beautiful koi ponds and fountains.

Our spacious, remodeled NON-SMOKING one bedroom/one bathroom condo on the ground floor has a gorgeous ocean view from a roomy lanai. This is the perfect home base for up to 4 people to relax and enjoy all that Maui has to offer. We are located in the quiet B building, one building from the ocean which gives you the advantage of looking at the ocean through the wonderful tropical grounds of Papakea. The B building is located in the most spacious side of the resort and is easy access to all amenities.

Everything you need to enjoy your vacation is provided - the condo comes fully furnished with dishes, cookware, bed and bath linens, beach towels, boogie boards, putters and balls to use on the 12 hole putting green steps from the unit.

If you like to cook, you’ll love the over sized kitchen – it is fully equipped with a fridge (with ice maker), dishwasher, microwave, toaster, blender, full-size oven and range, and coffeemaker. Washer and dryer are right in the unit.

Only a minute’s walk to ocean, pools, beaches (all with public access) and parking, our dream vacation condo offers many amenities and highlights including:

As Andrew Doughty, author of “Maui Revealed” so aptly puts, “Whatever fantasy you have, Maui is bound to deliver”. (No need to buy the book – we have the 2012 edition in our unit for you to explore).

Aloha and welcome to our home away from home!

Excellent Condo, Owner, and Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time I have used VRBO and the first time I have been to Hawaii. I was slightly worried how things would go but I will gladly say this was one of the best experiences I've had!

First, this condo is exactly as presented. It is NOT run down and there were absolutely no issues. It is clean, updated and nicely appointed. It is a very decent size, which was originally a bit of a concern when I first booked as we have 2 very young children. It turned out to be more than sufficient as it has a pullout and we rented a crib from a place just down the street (very convenient).

Being on ground level is where you want to be. We were able to have the kids cruise around right outside the porch area. It is immediately adjacent to the pool, putting green, hot tub and barbeques.

The unit has putters, balls, all newer appliances, knee boards, toys for kids, umbrellas for the beach, etc. The walk in shower is perfect. The unit has a/c and ceiling fans. Being from Canada, our kids are not used to the heat, so we kept things a bit cooler.

There not much of a beach in front of the resort, but we knew that in advance, and there's plenty of beaches within short walking distance. We spent much of the time around the pool so that wasn't an issue.

They are working on the beach retaining wall but there was NO construction noise and we barely noticed. The only thing we heard was the crashing waves at night and that was a welcome sound.

The resort itself is very well kept. It has everything you need and is overall very nice . At the same time this place is significantly less expensive than pretty much any other resort or unit in the area.

Beth (the owner/contact) was excellent. We couldn't have had a better experience. She answered any questions or concerns I had immediately. She is kind, professional and timely.

I wound highly recommend this unit/resort to anyone coming to Maui. This unit would be perfect for a couple, 2 couples, or a family of 4.

Thanks again Beth for making our first trip to Hawaii a great experience! (The incredible weather didn't hurt things either.)

Lovely updated one-bedroom Papakea Condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the month of December in this nice unit. It was perfect for us in every way and the ground-floor location made for easy access to Papakea's grounds and amenities. The owners are pleasant and very easy to work with. We will definitely go back!

The condo and location is great!

  • 4 of 5

This is the 2nd time I have stayed at the Papakea Resort. First time at this condo. The condo was set up nicely and close to the pool and ocean views. Mornings on the lanai were quiet and peaceful. The only thing that wasn't so great was the construction noise each day in the condo next door. I know this is not the normal atmosphere so would definitely book this condo again!

This is a nice more traditional style low rise resort.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great condo with everything you could possibly need. The unit was well presented, nicely decorated with good quality inclusions. Nice big quality beach and bath towels. The air conditioning was great but we prefered to just use the fans. The resort is also well maintained with beautifully manicured grounds and facilities. It is also very conveniently located to shops, an ABC store at the edge of the resort, and a Times supermarket across the road. We also walked to Duke's one night for dinner and although the location was amazing with a nice ambience, the food was disappointing . We loved being on the ground level but unfortunately the work on the seawall is still ongoing and is behind schedule, hey they work on Hawaiian time, so the view was blocked by the fencing which I was told will probably be there until December. The only hiccup in an otherwise great holiday. Would certainly recommend this resort and this condo, thanks Beth and friends.

Excellent unit. Modern, clean and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at B105 Papakea. The unit was well furnished and clean and the ground floor location was very convenient for accessing the mini golf, pool & shuffle board directly out front. The unit has been updated so is very tidy. The kitchen is brilliant and the shower is lovely. In suite laundry is a terrific bonus. Air conditioning worked efficiently. We put garbage bags up on the bedroom windows to darken the room for our toddler's naps - but otherwise, the suite was near perfect. Only thing we found missing in the cupboards was a wine corkscrew!

FYI - Papakea has two sets of facilities. Directly in front of B105, the pool is quite cool. If you walk the short distance to the other pool it is significantly warmer. Perfect temp in our opinion.

There is construction on the Seawall in front of our unit but we barely noticed. It was very quiet and our toddler loved seeing a digger everyday.

A Seawall links Papakea with the neighbouring hotels and resorts and we found this incredibly convenient as our friends and family were staying nearby.

There is a north car exit/entrance just outside our unit block which provides a shortcut to the ABC shop next door. A great option for a sudden requirement. Otherwise Times grocery, Slappy Cakes and a few other key amenities are a 5 minute walk beyond the main entrance.

A wonderful holiday. A perfect spot. Thank you Beth & co.
