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.

Comfortable, Homey feel with an amazing view

  • 4 of 5

We picked this condo for the location and comfort factor for my family of 5. The sectional sofa was a big draw and that it made into a queen bed was a plus. The pictures of the view do not do it justice. The condo has a great patio with a love seat that we sat in every morning and evening. There was no A/C which I was concerned about but running the fans and having the windows open brought enough of a breeze to cool it down. We were walking distance to a grocery store and a few food places. There was a pizza guy that set up shop every evening around the corner from the complex and he made homemade pizzas for carry out that the kids liked as well as a few food trucks a block away that was fun to try. The grounds were immaculate and staff very friendly. There is no beach access in front of the condos but there is a very small beach access a short walk away that we did go to several times. The location was very central to all of the places we wanted to visit. The owner of the condo was extremely great to work with and made accommodations for my family that help make this trip the best family vacation!

Its a beautiful family friendly property.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay. The unit was lovely and our favorite part of the whole trip was having meals on the lanai. We had younger kids so we bought floaties and other pool toys and left them. Amy was very easy to work with and we will most certainly return.

Owner's Response: Hi Vanessa, We're thrilled to hear you had a great time! We also really love eating on the Lanai. Thank you for leaving behind the pool toys - they will definitely be put to use :) We hope to see you again in paradise soon!

Papakea J304 - A Wonderful Family Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We've rented condos at Papakea regularly for the past 15 years and have never been disappointed. J304 was no exception! Amy has the condo very nicely renovated and decorated. Felt right at home as soon as we walked in the door! The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of useful cooking utensils and the hall closet has a great selection of beach towels and games. We even pulled out Scrabble to play during one of our quieter evenings.

The view from the lanai is great and equipped with table/chairs and a little wicker love seat that I spent every morning sitting in and enjoying my vanilla macadamia coffee and the awesome view of the ocean and park-like grounds of Papakea.

There's no air conditioning in this condo, but at Papakea, that really isn't a problem. Amy has plenty of fans for the condo and with the windows open, the tradewinds keeps everything constantly comfortable!

I could right on and on, but as a very regular visitor to Papakea, I can strongly recommend J304 as a great 2 bedroom/2 bath unit for your family. Even though we only had 3 of us on this trip, this condo can easily and comfortably sleep a family of 6 with no problems. In fact, we're already planning our next trip out to Maui in 2019 and will be bringing the entire family for that trip and J304 is certainly on our short list of units to check in on once we have the dates locked with the fam!

Great family friendly complex and condo

  • 4 of 5

My wife 2 kids and my mother in law stayed here for 5 nights and had a great time. The condo was ideal for the kids and complex was beautiful. Unfortunately the weather was not good as it rained and was windy everyday.. but the condo was great. Definitely will come back again.

Awesome condo, very nice owners!

  • 5 of 5

If your looking for a quiet and cozy place to escape the Hawaiian heat and rest up for another day in paradise than look no further than this gem of a condo! As a small family with two kids we couldn’t have been more comfortable. The kitchen was equipped with all the essentials and although the unit does not have AC it wasn’t a problem for us as each room has an overhead fan and there are additional freestanding fans in the closets if desired! The unit was spotless the owner very easy to deal with. We are already trying to secure a spot back here next year!

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.
