About Barbara Rubin
Our family has vacationed at Papakea for years. Our daughters, Emily and Dori grew up on the Ka'anapali Beaches, swimming, snorkeling, and hunting for beach glass. We love this relaxed, low density resort property. We have met wonderful people from all over the world. We invite you to vacation in our Maui "home away from home".
Barbara Rubin purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Barbara Rubin chose Honokowai
The atmosphere at Papakea is relaxed and welcoming. It never feels crowded, and yet there are abundant amenities from which to choose. It is close to everything we need, and offers us the comforts of home. We enjoy the spirit of Aloha.
What makes this Condo unique
Howard and I grew up in Southern California and are "beach kids". We are an active family, and this oceanfront resort provides for all of our outdoor activities. It is also close to shopping, restaurants, golf, tennis, luaus, and entertainment. When the whales are in season, we can spot them a couple hundred yards directly off of our beach. The sunsets and rainbows are spectacular, and we can't imagine another place on earth more beautiful.

Very nice unit with full amenities. Well stocked kitchen equipment. We used the washer and dryer almost everyday with no issues. Unit is in a good location on the grounds, which are beautiful by the way. Walking distance to grocery store, farmers market, coffee shops. Would surely stay again!
The property was great with the exception of the weather...
Aloha Casey, I'm so glad that you and Sylvia had a wonderful time at Papakea celebrating your honeymoon. I tried my very best to arrange for great weather, but I don't have much pull with Mother Nature. We wish you a life of health and happiness together! Mahalo, Barbara & Howard
Nicely equipped condo in good location. Beds average. Great furnishings.
Well maintained grounds, very beautiful. Seemed safe. Conceirge didn't supply reliable information. Maintenance staff very helpful.
Aloha Kathryn, Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts about our Resort and condo. It sounds like you had an enjoyable stay. Our entire Papakea team takes great pride in providing a safe and beautiful environment for our guests to experience. I am curious about the information, (or lack of), that you received from our Concierge. I recommend them often, and they typically go above and beyond to ensure our guests receive factual and reliable advice. Mahalo, Barbara & Howard
Nice enough but needed upgrading
We were somewhat confined to the unit for a week of our trip due to illness and bad weather; therefore, we became aware that the furniture was pretty uncomfortable. Plus the unit could use a little upgrading. The bed was okay, however. The lanai didn't offer much of a view, but we expected that. People kept walking directly in front of the lanai while we were out there, which was a little irksome. It was obviously not a walk through.
Aloha Wenda and Terry, I'm so disappointed that the Maui weather was not accommodating, and that you you fell ill during your stay. That must have really put a damper on your vacation and soured your mood. You mention that the condo could use some "upgrading". I'm a bit surprised because we had just installed a new mechanism for the living room sofa bed, reupholstered the side chair with new firm cushions, replaced the bedroom windows with fire-rated ones for safety, and wall-mounted an HD TV in the bedroom. I'm glad that you found the bed "comfy", and was able to take advantage of the large lanai which opens directly onto the tropically landscaped gardens and koi ponds. Typically other guests stroll the paths and do not interfere with our privacy. I'm so sorry that this was not the case when you were there. Our VRBO photos clearly represent the condo, with the exception that they do not display all of the new upgrades we have recently installed. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. Barbara
Another wonderful family holiday at Papakea
This was our 3rd stay at Papakea and it did not disappoint! J107 is a lovely, 1 bdrm unit with everything you might need for your vacation on Maui. The large, good quality beach towels provided were key, and we appreciated the snorkel gear provided. The condo itself was great for our young family of 4. There was ample storage for our 2 week stay. The master bed was comfy and the fold-out couch worked perfectly for our kids. As a bonus, the owners were super responsive and accommodating - wonderful to work with!
The Papakea complex is a wonderful place to stay! We enjoy the overall "not super touristy", smaller resort vibe. It's conveniently located with lots of beaches within walking or (short) driving distances, as well as shops (convenience and grocery) and Lahaina. We also thoroughly enjoy all of the amenities at the complex (pools, hot tubs, events, etc.) and look forward to another stay - hopefully sooner than later!
Thanks Barbara and family for more wonderful Maui memories.
Aloha Kim, Thanks for taking the time to share your experience of staying in our Maui condo for your vacation. We take great pride in providing our guests with accommodating details so they won't need to worry about them. From your description, it sounds like your family thoroughly enjoyed the convenience and "Spirit of Aloha" at Papakea Resort. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back. A Hui Hou! Barbara & Howard
We loved it!
We had an amazing trip!
We loved the location of the condo at papakea. Parking was always available next to this mainfloor unit which made it really easy to come and go with a toddler.
The condo was clean and nice. The kitchen had all the supplies needed to make meals.
It was really nice that there was also an umbrella, beach umbrella, cooler, beach chairs, beach toys, and towels available.
Would definitely stay here again! Thanks for the great time!
Aloha Nicole, Thanks for taking the time to share your vacation experience in our Maui condo. We enjoyed hearing that your family had a such a great time! We take pride in providing a well-stocked condo to meet our guests' needs. The large lanai that opens directly onto the tropically landscaped lawns and gardens, creates a family-friendly environment, and it sounds like you took full advantage. Mahalo for your kind words! Barbara and Howard
