ALOHA! Stunning views abound from this spacious and open corner loft unit, at the Papakea Resort. Located less than 50 yards from the ocean, makes this beautifully decorated and remodeled unit almost ocean front. Save and rent directly from owner for quality that you can count on when you arrive.
The Papakea Resort is a tropical oasis on 13 acres of manicured grounds, with a thoroughly Hawaiian atmosphere. It has the largest amount of land of any condominium resort on Maui’s spectacular Kaanapali beach, the only resort with two ocean front pools, two spas and two large 12 hole putting greens. Grounds also include three lighted tennis courts, two shuffleboard courts, two beach cabanas, tranquil koi ponds, lush gardens and 12 outdoor barbecues.
Papakea is conveniently located between the Kaanapali and Kapalua world class golf resorts, just minutes away from shops, restaurants and galleries in nearby Lahaina and Whaler’s Village. Walk to the grocery store, delis and other services on the other side of Papakea and right across the street. Other restaurants are within walking distance just down the beach.
K-401 is the top fourth floor corner unit closest to the ocean. The K building is very desirable because it shelters the lanai and living room from the afternoon sun and is in a quiet dead end parking lot. An elevator is just a few doors away. Free parking is right outside the building.
A beautiful remodel provided new cabinets, granite countertops, tile floors and many other updates. K-401 was then a model unit on the Papakea Homeowner’s Annual Meeting unit tours for two years.
The entire first floor and lanai, has the cool feel of clean tiles, placed in an elegant diagonal pattern. Storage is abundant throughout, with extra closets and dressers. The owners continue to upgrade and maintain the unit EVERY year to sustain the quality guest experience. The latest major improvement is a Fujitsu tri-zone air conditioning system that provides three independently controlled air handlers in the living room/kitchen, loft and master bedroom for unparalleled comfort.
Soaring wood cathedral ceilings rise up to the loft, that makes this unit feel like a home rather than just a hotel room. Picketed railings allow light and air to flow through but children under 5 are not recommended, due to dangers inherent in the loft.
The K building was also finished in the almost $1 million dollar per building Papakea exterior renovation project in the summer of 2012. The project reversed almost 40 years of ocean front wear by repairing the concrete spalling damage, replacing all of the building railings, coating the lanais and walkways with a high tech engineered surface and painting the exterior. Papakea has never looked better!
Enjoy our second home as we do and absorb the aloha spirit at Papakea!
Pricing below is far lower than typical "rack rates" of other internet travel services but no surprises when you check in. If you pay for Papakea unit K-401 quality, you will get the K-401 location and amenities for your stay. No ka ‘oi.

Mike and Cindy are both pharmacists and have two sons, Ryan and Justin and a corgi named Riley. The Maui condo has always been a wonderful second home to gather the family since we now all live in different parts of the country.
Owner purchased this Condo in 2000
Why Owner chose Kaanapali
Maui has always been a magical place for our family, even before we bought the condo. While there are fantastic activities, we mostly just enjoy the relaxing Hawaiian culture, snorkeling, laying around water and dining in a variety of spectacular settings.
What makes this Condo unique
Papakea is a beautiful setting for all ages. We bought because Papakea has the rare commodity of land. It's not a typical hotel like high rise facility. There are wonderful beaches in both directions and the putting greens are fun relaxation. Unit K-401 has the added benefit of wide open spacing. The loft soars high up and the side window contributes to NOT feeling like a cramped hotel room. K-401 feels like somone's home because it is. Having a second floor in the loft just adds to the feeling.

Mike & Cindy's place was perfect for us. The unit is very clean and comfortable and has all the items needed!
They also made the process very easy as check in information was provided ahead of time and they also had a handy binder for items in the condo. On top of that they also had a handy informational packet for Maui dining and attractions.
Mike & Cindy - Thank you for sharing your place!
Looking Better Than Ever
The property and K-401 looked fantastic. Going to the keiki Easter egg hunt for the first time was special. We're the owners and this is the first time that we've actually written a VRBO review. It's an easy process but we wanted to see what the guests see.
The unit looks incredible. The beds and sofa were replaced 18 months ago. This trip we added new matching furniture for the entire living/dining room and both bedrooms. The stairs' loft carpets were replaced and new matching wood blinds were added. The kitchen had many utensil upgrades and replacements.
We also saw whales from the lanai and just enjoyed paradise!
Wonderful stay at a beautiful property!!
PapakeaK401 is a wonderful condo! The pictures are true to what you will walk in to, and what you see on the grounds. Having the separation of one bedroom and bathroom in the loft, and one bedroom and bathroom on the main floor was really nice for traveling with two couples. Everyone felt like they had their own space for getting ready, which was great. The view from the lanai is wonderful, and having a table for 4 was great for meals outside. We were also able to do quite a bit of whale watching from the lanai—whales everywhere this trip!! Loved the ‘feel’ at Papakea too—very laid back, not too crowded, and all of the staff around the grounds were very nice. Walks along the sea wall became a favorite thing for us as you can look down and see reef triggerfish, cornet fish, moorish idols, and other fish swimming right there. We were also lucky enough to see the turtles swim right in to feed on the reef there—it was an amazing sight!! Mike and Cindy were truly a joy to work with, they made everything so easy, and were great about answering any questions that we had. We would definitely stay here again, and would recommend to anyone!
Just like the pics, no bait and switch here
Place was as listed, clean, quiet, and on the ocean.
Great place with a great view!!! We will be back
This was my first stay at Papakea and I found it to be just as all the reviews reported. It was a quiet, laid back place with most of the amenities of a big resort. K401 was clean and roomy with the bedrooms and bathrooms at different ends of the unit. My favorite part was watching the waves crash from the balcony. The Papakea grounds and buildings were clean and well maintained. The beach starts at the next door resort but there are lounge chairs that you can pull up to the sea wall on the lawn to sunbathe or watch the sunset. The Hurst family was quick to respond to me and set up my vacation dates.
