About the property

3 Bedroom/2 Bathroom with Ocean View

Welcome to our tastefully Hawaiian decorated 2 bedroom, 2 bath plus a loft condo. Sleeps 6-7 comfortably. Beautiful touches throughout with remodeled kitchen and bathrooms. Master bedroom has a king size bed, tv, and attached bathroom. Second bedroom has a queen size bed and loft has queen size bed and pull out sofa bed. All the comforts of home make this the perfect choice for a wonderful Hawaiian vacation. The view from the lanai is spectacular and with its north facing private view stays shady and comfortable allowing the Hawaiian breezes to flow through. Our unit, K-405, is located on the 4th (top) floor in building K overlooking putting green and pool with convenient handicap access. Papakea Resort is beautifully landscaped 15 acres at the North end of Kaanapali Beach. There are two swimming pools, two spas, 12 BBQ's, shuffleboard, tennis courts, koi ponds, two putting greens and many more extras. Each morning there is a very informative presentation (not time share) at the gazebo that highlights many great activities that Maui has to offer. There are also on sight yoga classes and water aerobics offered for guests. The property has a beautifully kept grass area and sea wall with direct access to a nice beach adjacent to the property. We are sure you will enjoy our special home away from home.

This has been our families home away from home for many years. My parents have owned our condo since 1979 and have had it on Papakea's rental program for that time (along with a few long term rentals). We have many wonderful handwritten reviews in books that we have left for guests to sign, that I would be happy to scan and send to you if you would like. Our condo really is a special place that really makes you feel the Hawaiian spirit!

**Papakea charges a $17/day facility fee for your first 10 consecutive days in a 30 day period. The fee includes free parking, unlimited tennis, pickleball and shuffleboard court use, Wifi throughout the resort, a full High Def cable package, and local phone calls. This fee is collected by the Front Desk.

About Beth DiGirolamo (Marlene's daughter)

Once upon a time......

We met in Kindergarten in 1941.

Our dream of owning a piece of paradise came true on our 20th wedding anniversary.

This peaceful space offers much aloha in our tastefully Hawaiian decorated condo we would like to share with our guests.

Sadly I lost my love 3 years ago, but I would like to pay our precious memories forward.

Aloha and enjoy!

Beth DiGirolamo (Marlene's daughter) purchased this condo in 1977

Why Beth DiGirolamo (Marlene's daughter) chose Lahaina

Our family has enjoyed many vacations here with extended family and friends and know you will create your own happy memories as well.

What makes this condo unique

Not only is the ocean view spectacular from the 4th (top) floor lanai, but the grounds at Papakea Resort are kept so beautiful throughout the whole year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beth, Thank you so much for the great place to stay. Our trip was beyond over the top. Probably the one of the most beautiful places in the world.

The wedding was picture Perfect, and one of the happiest days of my life.

The Papakea service was fantastic. Sarah made all of our arrangements and set us up a schedule all at one stop. We were blown away on how easy she made the entire experience. We managed to go around the entire island, by auto and by motorcycle. We saw the island by helicopter, submarine, car, motorcycle, and boat.

I can’t imagine any better vacation. Biggest part of a great vacation is a great place to lay your head at night and reflect. That you did perfect, and we thank you.

Outstandig location. Unit was clean and comfortable for 6 adults. It was also located near the market as well as the beach. I would highly recommend this unit.

Great accommodations for our family

  • 4 of 5

Beth was a wonderful host, contacting us prior to our stay and ensuring we were all set to arrive. The unit was great for our family of seven (mom, dad, kids, grandma, grandpa), with plenty of sleeping quarters. The unit is spacious and has a great view of the Lanai pool and ocean. We made use of the deck each morning & evening watching the waves. The unit was mostly clean, except for some dust accumulation on curtains, and well stocked. We used the air conditioner some nights, while others we just left the windows open and the ocean breeze cooled the unit down. The stairs to the loft are quite steep and took some getting used to.

The unit has a cozy beach feel to it with updated kitchen and bath counters. Some of the furniture and bathtub areas have been used and aren't in top condition, but that didn't take away from our overall experience in the least. In fact, it made it feel a little more like a home away from home that we could feel comfortable and relaxed in.

The Papakea grounds are really nice. The pool and hot tub were easy to access and the kids loved spending time there. You can walk just south of the property to a nice sandy beach and many snorkeling beaches are just a short drive away. The natural food market down the road as well as closer places such as Java Jazz, LL's Hawaiian, and the Fish Market were great to have so close.

Overall, this unit and the Papakea resort were a great experience, one that we would return to for future visits.

The beautiful ocean view was spectacular from this very clean, comfortable, and cozy apartment.

  • 4 of 5

The four of us (two couples) enjoyed our stay very much. The unit was clean and ready for us to move right in. The beds and other furnishings were very comfortable, and the necessary kitchen items were available and they all worked. We also had no trouble using the wifi and television, and made ample use of the few pool accessories. The grounds were very well kept up, (it seemed like the staff was mowing, edging, trimming, or tending the pool all the time). We enjoyed the pool and hot tub, the sunsets on the grass by the sea wall at the water's edge, and our walks on the beach at the neighboring resort. The location was great - walking distance to the grocery store and conveniently close to Lahaina. We didn't use the air conditioner much at all because the cool ocean breeze was enough for us (it was also very loud when it was turned on). We noticed that the stairs to the 3rd bedroom loft were very narrow, uneven, and difficult to use. Overall, we had a really nice time staying in this unit. The owners were very accommodating of our request to stay a few hours after official check out time, and we appreciated very much.

Beautiful Waterfront Property

  • 4 of 5

Mahalo Beth, Marlene

The condo had lots of room for our family get together of 6 adults, 2 children for 9 days. Bedrooms were a good size, the loft space can be quite warm, but the air conditioner was able to cool down the space to sleep. The kitchen was adequately stocked to prepare meals for the group, and the wide counter, was great for serving buffet style. The BBQ's around the pool were very well maintained, and put to good use.

Beautiful views of the water, and lovely breezes on the balcony, where we enjoyed watching gorgeous sunsets.

Trips to Haleakala, the blow hole, dragon's teeth, Ilia Valley , Lahaina, were all great day trips from Papakea.

Happy hour at Merriman's, the Napili Market, Fish Market were favourite spots to eat, and purchase incredibly fresh fish.

We stopped at Costco, to stock up, and the Times grocery store across the street is very well stocked.

Beth was a wonderful host, and answered all our questions before our trip quickly.

We had a wonderful memory filled stay in at the condo in Kaanapali.
