Romantic studio unit with beautiful ocean views - everything brand new!

What could be more romantic than enjoying beautiful ocean views, seen across gorgeous tropical grounds, from the comfort of your own lanai? We have just finished renovating this Papakea studio, and it is now possibly the most beautiful studio in the whole resort.

The remodel includes custom bamboo cabinets, quartz countertops, and glass mosaic backsplash; new stainless steel Bosch and GE kitchen appliances; brand new, designer tropical furnishings; eastern king bed (NOT a wall bed or hide-a bed!); cool tile floors throughout; natural woven window coverings, and brand new split system air conditioning. It's the perfect spot for a romantic getaway!

Papakea Resort is truly the spirit of Old Hawaii. With 11 low-rise condo buildings scattered across 13 acres oceanfront acres, the Papakea Resort is one of the lowest density condominium resorts on the island. Unlike many other Maui resorts, it is set well back from the street, but is still conveniently close to grocery stores and restaurants. A convenience store, a full service grocery store, several coffee shops and a number of terrific casual restaurants are all within walking distance. The upscale shopping/restaurant venue of Whaler's Village is only a short 5 minute drive, with the charming village of Lahaina another 5-10 minutes further down the road. A few of the amenities on the property include 2 shuffleboard courts, 2 lighted tennis courts, 2 twelve hole putting greens, 2 pools, 2 whirlpool spas, 12 outdoor grills and 2 beach cabanas.

Although Mother Nature removed Papakea's seasonal beach several years ago, a small sandy beach is just a short walk south through Papakea's beautiful grounds. A number of the island's many beautiful beaches are also just a short drive away. A double reef just offshore, part of the Kahekili Marine Reserve, offers generally calm waters for swimming and snorkeling. And Papakea's lawns give you ample space for oceanfront lounging.

Please note that Papakea began a year-long restoration of its aging seawall last December. The vast majority of the construction impacts have been to the three oceanfront buildings; the other buildings have experienced very little noise or view impacts. Work on the seawall has now moved to the final phase, in front of the south pool. From now until the completion of the project, the view from the lanai of our condo and our pool should be unaffected. You can read more about the project on the resort's website by going to the resort's website, resortatpapakea.com.

Please note: Papakea Resort charges a $17/day resort fee for the first 10 nights of your stay. This fee, which is collected directly by the front desk at the time of your stay, covers all resort amenities, including parking, wifi internet, cable, 24-hour security, onsite Expedia concierge, all resort amenities and activities - even a weekly mai tai party!

Why Property Manager chose Honokowai

Papakea's unique, extraordinary, peaceful beauty and incredible oceanfront location, just can't be beat. The meandering paths past koi ponds and beautiful tropical grounds, plus the resort's old Hawaii sense of seclusion, soothe the spirit. The kindness and generosity of the Papakea staff welcome every guest, and the proximity to everything that West Maui has to offer, make it the perfect spot. Plus, mornings watching the ocean from the lanai, or walking down to the water's edge to watch the nightly sunsets, make for the perfect vacation.

This location is perfect with access to beaches and restaurants while remaining outside of the overly touristy areas. Enjoyed having morning coffee on the terrace while watching whales swim past our stretch of ocean. Carol and Dennis provided excellent recommendations for food and activities and we were never disappointed! Couldn't be more pleased with our stay.

Beginning our days on the lanai with coffee and a wonderful view of the ocean was very special. The bed is very comfortable. . The condo has everything anyone would need for a lovely holiday in Mauii. This resort is kept up beautifully and we have already booked our stay in the studio for next year we loved it so much! Carol and Dennis are terrific to deal with and really care about giving you a positive experience in their condo . Mahalo. We can hardly wait to return!

                                                                    Aloha Beverly - thank you so much for your wonderful review! We've tried to make our Papakea home a comfortable haven, and we're so glad you feel we succeeded. We're so happy we'll be welcoming you back next year. Mahalo nui loa!

                                                                    Very nice

                                                                    Ted V.

                                                                    Very nice clean property, conveniently located.

                                                                    As pictured in photos

                                                                    Lori M.Abbotsford

                                                                    Beautiful view off the Lanai. Comfortable bed, and well appointed kitchen. Boogie boards need to be upgraded to adult sized with Fiberglas bottoms. I let owner know one of kids sized boards was broken and she was really great to tell us to go buy one if we wanted to and she would reimburse us. We never got around to it but nice offer. It was great to have a hard sided cooler. We left behind two Costco snorkel sets but I would honestly consider renting higher quality snorkel sets from Snorkel Bob's across the street. One small thing I would upgrade is getting Tommy Bahama backpack chairs and Tommy Bahama umbrella from Costco as these ones were chairs you carried on one shoulder and they were more cumbersome to carry than backpack chairs. Good location to explore Blow Hole, Napili Bay, Whalers Village, and Lahaina. Owner is very easy to work with. It was a lovely first stay in Maui. I would highly recommend this unit for travellers on a budget who want quality. The pool in front of us was not heated and was too cold for us, but the other pool was heated.

                                                                    Cozy, clean and quiet! We loved the beachy feel of the decor. Great view and grounds.

                                                                    Heather Y.

                                                                    My husband and I absolutely loved the condo! It was beautifully renovated, styled and appointed. Papakea is well situated near Times market, a farmer's market and a seafood store which are all within walking distance. I thought the unit would be smaller than it was, and I was pleasantly surprised with all the space and storage. The grounds were gorgeous and the pools were very nice. I guess the only negative thing I could say is that the hot tub closest to the unit was under renovation while we were staying, but there is a second hot tub in the second building so it reallt wasn't much of a hardship. 10/10! We would definitely stay here again when we come to Maui next.

                                                                    Maui offers travelers just about everything possible in the way of activities. Maui has scores of beautiful beaches. Several are within easy walking distance, including one that begins at the south end of Papakea Resort; others are a short drive away, including Kapalua, Oneloa and Napili Bay to the North, and Ka'anpali to the south. Whalers Village is a 5 minute drive away, with upscale shops and great dining. Historic Lahaina town is less than a 15 minute drive south, offering many more dining and shopping options, plus access to great activities like parasailing, sunset dinner cruises, ferry trips to Lanai and Molokai, and whale watching cruises (in season). Take the drive to South Maui, to enjoy the great Kamaole, Keawekapu, Wailea and Makena beaches, or to enjoy the Shops at Wailea. Head upcountry to explore Makawao's plantation history and many galleries and shops, the beautiful vistas of Kula and Ulupalakua, and the extraordinary beauty of the Haleakala summit. Take a day to experience the famous (or infamous) Road to Hana. But whatever your adventures, be sure to save time to enjoy morning coffee and ocean vistas from the comfort of your ocean view lanai!
