About Amy Shipley

We are Debbie & Keith with girls Amy, Rebecca and Corah from Alberta. After years of traveling to hot spots around the world the ladies asked why we had never been to Hawaii. The answer was ' the first time we vacation in Hawaii we'll never go anywhere else'. After a vacation to Maui and the Papakea 15 years ago we've never been anywhere else. We're now able to share or home away from home with new and old friends all year long. The Papakea feels as good or better than home everytime we return and we're sure you'll feel the same way.

Amy Shipley purchased this condo in 2007

Why Amy Shipley chose Lahaina

The Papakea is a great place for couples, families or anyone looking for a relaxing vacation. It includes all the amenities that you will require and more. It is conveniently located within minutes of world class golf courses, beautiful beaches, restaurants and plenty of shopping. The town of Lahaina is a ten minute drive and always offers plenty to do. Surfing, snorkelling and seasonal whale watching are all available minutes from your doorstep.

Loved it

  • 4 of 5

A great place to stay. We were in a 2 bedroom with a great view of the ocean from master bedroom and lanai. Pool area great. Very close to everything you need. Will definitely be back again. Would suggest you book vrbo rather than with other sites.

Touch of paradise

  • 5 of 5

This unit is well equipped for a family of up to 6. The couch on the lanai is a special touch for a family and the "L" couch in the living room allowed lots of space for the 5, 7, and 9 yr olds to watch T.V. without assaulting each other. The view is spectacular and the proximity to the "warm" pool a favorite for the children. Overall, Papakea is very well kept and a lovely place to visit. This is our fourth stay at this resort, first in J-304 but definitely our favorite unit. The owner Amy is a delight to work with and everything about the reservation/stay went very well. A working ice maker is rare and it was a blessing indeed.

Very nice. Great location and I loved the view of Lani and Moliki

  • 4 of 5

Unit was comfortable and I liked the extra things that were in it versus our timeshare in Florida. Staff was nice and helpful. We had two weeks of perfect weather and the location is in paradise. I liked being able to use the gym at the resort next door and that Lahanai is still small and quaint. Roads on the island were great and easy to get around on.

Great place, clean and cozy!

  • 4 of 5

We didn't have the best weather... But still had an amazing time! So much to do! Need to come back to finish our to do list!

Our place we stayed was great! Very clean and well equipped!

If you can save up go on a helicopter ride of the island in the morning, then head out to Mammas Fish house for lunch then up the road about 2 miles to watch the turtles on the beach sunning themselves! Was one of the best days ever!!! But... Please prepar yourself for the expense, but if you can afford it well with it!!

Thanks again for a great trip! Can't wait to come back!

Beautiful, clean, spacious, great location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a family vacation of 4 (3 adults, 1 child). It was just what we wanted. My daughter loved the pool and the very easy access to the beach about a few minute walk next door. The view was amazing. We sat out on the very confortable lanai every morning and every evening enjoying the view. It was also nice to have shops and restaurants within walking distance. The staff on site were very pleasant and helpful. The front desk was always happy to help us in the right direction to our desired destination. We very much enjoyed ourselves. Thank you Amy!
