About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Full Bathrooms (Sleeps 6)

We have two 3BR / 3BA condos side by side for larger family stays. See Listing 237472 also.

Aloha and welcome to the Papakea Resort, a 13-acre oceanfront resort with a true feeling of Maui. There are two sets of low-rise buildings, each with its own pool, spa, cabana, putting green, shuffleboard, and newly upgraded gas barbecue area. The resort also has two lighted tennis courts and an activity desk with 24-hour front desk check-in availability and free parking.

For those of you who 'must' stay connected, Papakea now offers free Wireless Internet access throughout the resort. For times when you wish to pursue outdoor activities, the golf courses of Kapalua and Kaanapali are nearby, and great snorkeling and boogie-boarding beaches are within walking distance.

Only steps from the ocean, our top-floor penthouse unit has been completely remodeled and provides a beautiful ocean view. There is a view from both the living room and master bedroom. Most of the furniture was custom built. By Hawaii's standards, this penthouse is huge. It is over 1200 square feet. The main floor has two bedrooms with their own flat screen TV's. The master bedroom is very large with plenty of closet and dresser space. It has a king-sized bed and full en suite bathroom with dual sinks. The second bedroom has a queen-sized bed and a full en suite bathroom. Both bedrooms have custom built desks.

The third bedroom is a loft with a queen-sized bed and its own full en suite bathroom with HDLCD TV and DVD. All bathrooms feature glassed in showers and granite countertops for the vanity area.

The loft area is unique and quite large. There are only a few loft units available with this type of configuration because these penthouses exist only on the fourth floor and most other fourth floor units are either a one bedroom or studio. Very few units in Papakea have an opportunity to feature a bedroom with a direct view of the ocean from your bed!

Our penthouse is air conditioned with a Split A/C system that cools the entire condo, but with ceiling fans in all rooms... who needs it?! Just open all the windows, listen to the ocean, and let the warm, comfortable tropical air relax you.

The living area has ample seating, as well as a large 60-inch LED TV screen with satellite connection and DVD with a Bose sound system. The modern gourmet kitchen features LED lighting, stainless steel appliances, cherry wood cabinets, and granite counters and bar that allow seating for four during meal preparation. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, cooking utensils, refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven, and coffee maker. A unique feature has been the addition of a wine fridge for those who take their wines seriously. The unit comes complete with washer and dryer.

The marble tiled floors throughout, give it that clean, cool look and feel you desire in the tropics.

Our unit has unique folding accordion doors which opens onto your private lanai. These doors, when fully opened, create a feeling of open living space. Very few units have these types of doors! So sit back on the lanai and enjoy an unobstructive view of the pool, the ocean and the island of Molokai. The evening sunsets are spectacular!!

There is a $17/day Facilities Use Fee (with a 10 day $170 maximum per calendar month) will be collected at check out, payable to the front desk.

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 adults and 2 children (both under 2) stayed at this property for 1 week. The condo is fantastic - very modern and was very handy to have 3 separate bedrooms and bathrooms for each couple. Also very handy to have a full kitchen and we often ate on the balcony with the stunning view of the pool and ocean. Like the previous reviewer wrote, the condo has aircon in the living room (and loft) only and not in the bedrooms, and the biggest bedroom (the one with stunning view) was very hot at night (since the sun shines on it all day) but the couple that stayed in there was able to make do with keeping the windows open at night and blowing a fan from the living room to the bedroom. This is a very small point to the property, especially considering we were there in July and there for a particularly hot week and does not take away any stars to my rating, everything else was exceptional! Carl was very responsive which was very appreciated! Overall would highly recommend!

Owner's Response: We are very aware that the past several years have brought higher temperatures and possible loss of the Westerly's in the summer months on Maui. As a result of our Guests comments on dealing with this changed environment, we are installing central AC in the unit to make the entire condo more comfortable as of this September.

Lovely, convenient location, perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had this two bedroom and loft with three bathrooms for a week and I wish we could have stayed forever. This condo was perfect for my family. I took the loft during our July vacation and it was easily the coolest room with the a/c in the living room, the loft benefits from the air. The other two rooms were warmer, but my mom and sister and her husband were able to do okay with the fans provided. The kitchen was awesome, the location is awesome, the communication with Carl was super easy. I would definitely stay here again. I loved it!

Enjoyable visit to Lahaina

  • 3 of 5

A good experience. One objection for a 3 bedroom with accommodation for 6 people, there was not a place for all 6 of us to sit down for a meal together. Four could sit on lanai or at bar but other two had to sit on couch. Actually no central a/c just in living area and fans in bedrooms. That was a disappointment. Other than that it was clean and comfortable.

Owner's Response: Actually we are in the process of installing central AC which will be operational in mid-September. The headline got listed early. We do assemble 2 bar chairs around the Lanai table to add to the 4 Lanai chairs and accommodate 6 for a meal on the Lanai. It is workable.

You won’t be disappointed!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful condo in an upscale waterfront area will not disappoint. Nothing in the pictures or description has been exaggerated. The picture of the ocean view is exactly what you will see from the master bedroom and living room. The condo has a well equipped kitchen plus a laundry and three bedrooms and baths. Although we had a car, we especially appreciated the many stores within easy walking distance. Also, it is an easy drive to the charming city of Lahaina. My family was here for a vow renewal, and all the ladies enjoyed a first rate mani across the street, while the guys enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi. The landlord, Carl, is exceptionally responsive and will answer any questions promptly and thoroughly. We enjoyed our visit to this beautiful location immensely! Highly recommended!

Spanish Fork, UT


  • 5 of 5

This condo is on the top floor with a beautiful view of ocean! We had 6 in our party and fit comfortably. The resort is also beautiful, and has many fun activities to offer. There is no actual beach area on the resort, but its very close to many beaches. We loved our time here, especially eating breakfast out on the lanai!

Amazing Spot

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing 10 day stay. The accommodations were fantastic, great space and well stocked with everything you could possibly need. The grounds were immaculate and ideal for families. Hard to beat the location and surrounding area too. Can't wait to go back next year!!
