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.

Nice cozy place to stay with all the comforts of home
The location was fantastic! Don’t miss the farmers market up the road and the Honokowai park right across the street from there. The condo was perfect for our family. The bed was comfortable and the pull out couch was great for our son. It had all of the pots and pans, storage containers, coffee maker, blender, etc very well stocked. We made use of the snorkel equipment and chairs for our beach trips. Staff was friendly and always working on making sure the property was cleaned and cared for. Not a single complaint, we hope to go back again soon and will definitely stay here again! The owners were very kind and responsive to all questions and requests. Thank you again for sharing your condo with us! Highly recommended!
Papakea is a beautiful complex, well maintained with lots to do.
Close to grocery stores, restaurants and public beaches. We will definitely go back
Aloha Linda, Thanks for taking the time to share your vacation experience in our one-bedroom Maui condo at the beautiful Papakea Oceanfront Resort. It is true that Papakea offers not only gorgeous tropically landscaped grounds, but is so convenient to the market and small shops. We look forward to your next trip back! a Hui Hou! Barbara & Howard
The perfect place for a Hawaiian getaway!
We absolutely loved our stay in this oceanfront condo! The location was perfect, just a few steps away from the beach, and only a short car ride away from many attractions! The condo was very spacious and had everything we could ever need for our trip! We are very thankful we found this gem, and I definitely recommend staying here if you are planning a trip to Maui!
Aloha Talia, Thanks for taking the time to share your vacation experience in our Maui condo. We love the beauty and convenience of Papakea, and are happy that you were able to enjoy all of the amenities our condo has to offer. We try very hard to anticipate our guests' needs and fee gratified when we are successful! We look forward to your next trip back. Mahalo, Barbara & Howard
Great condo, just enough for a family of 4 with little ones
Our family really enjoyed our stay at Papakea. The grounds were absolutely gorgeous and the resort itself was very centrally located. One downfall was the washer was out of order in the room. It was something I was comforted with when booking to use with 2 small kids... also, the room itself is pretty small. It was enough for our family of 4 (us with a 5 & 7 year old) and the pullout bed is rather uncomfortable. But again, you're in Hawaii so it wasn't a deal breaker. We would definelty book again and appreciate all that was offered.
Aloha Kristina, Thanks for sharing your thoughts about Papakea Resort and our condo. I'm so sorry that the washer broke just before your arrival. I tried to give you a heads up before you began travelling so that you would pack a few extra clothes for your trip. Sometimes on Maui it is difficult to repair things because parts are not readily in stock on the Island. I tried so hard to get it repaired for you, but I ended up having to replace both the washer & dryer with brand new machines the day after you left. As you say...you're in Hawaii, and that in itself just seems to put a smile on our faces. Thanks for your understanding! We hope to see you back for another Maui vacation. Mahalo, Barbara & Howard
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!
Aloha Tim, Thanks for taking the time to share your vacation experience in our Maui condo at Papakea Oceanfront Resort. We try very hard to anticipate our guests' needs so they can relax and enjoy their vacation without having to think of details. We agree that our ground-floor condo is in a great location, conveniently adjacent to parking, and opening directly onto the tropically manicured lawns, koi ponds, and paths which lead directly to the ocean. The Resort is truly convenient to the market, coffee houses, pubs, and small restaurants located just across the street. We look forward to your next trip back. In the meantime, we trust you will warm your hearts with Maui memories. A Hui Hou! Barbara & Howard
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
