  • Great Family Location

    "Our family consisted of my wife, 3 year and a 1.5 year old. We wanted a kid friendly location that was close to amenities and we found it at Papakea Resort. The resort is beautiful. Its very well maintained, quaint, cozy and family oriented. The people staying at the resort were friendly and many have been coming back for years. The locations was very convenient, ABC was only a few steps away and Times Market was across the street. This made our trip so much easier with two little kids in tow. The resort never felt crowded and there were plenty of lawn chairs to sit and watch the sunset. We walked to nearby resorts to the south via a pedestrian bridge and it was the complete opposite, noisy and crowded. It felt as though we were at a Mexican resort during Spring Break. We were in constant communication with the owner (Darren) of the condo. Darren was amazing to deal with. He always answered our questions promptly and emailed us during our stay to ensure we were satisfied. Super easy to deal with and laid back. The condo is just as it's described. We rented a second condo for my sisters family at Papakea and this 1 bedroom condo was indeed larger than theirs. It's bright, spacious and furnished nicely. Yes, the sofa bed is a tad soft. There is a key pad to enter, which means you don't have to worry about carrying or loosing a key. The master bed was confortable and thankfully there was a pack n play crib for us to use. The kitchen was stocked with your basic equipment. I love that the fridge had a water dispenser! There was sufficient counter space to cook and eat. We were able to move the two small coffee tables to make one large play area for the kids. The only thing I would suggest is perhaps a mop and bucket or vacuum? Sorry with two small kids I still like to clean on vacation. Being ground level made everything so much easier. The kids could run straight to the koi pond when they wanted and going to and from the pool was a LOT EASIER. Best of all....when the kids took a nap one parent can sneak out without waking the kids! The a/c works well and sufficiently cools the entire condo. Love the location and condo. Would recommend this condo to friends and family. Gave a 4, as there was no "beach" in front of the resort. But a short walk or drive and you can find one!"

  • Absolutely Amazing

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Everything was perfect. The property was very well maintained and had everything you could need for your vacation stay. We enjoyed biking down the volcano, zip lining with skyline Eco adventures, snorkeling at molokini bay and snuba with the turtles, parasailing, luau at the Sheraton, and deep sea fishing. We would definitely book again with Aloha Vacation Rentals. Thanks again for everything."

  • Family Vacation

    "Three generations (7 total from 9 months to 64 yrs) gathered for a week in this beautiful condo on Maui. Each family unit had our own space (complete with private bathrooms), which was perfect! The location of the condo right on the ocean, and near the corner of the building, and four floors up, was spectacular. Pretty much the only sounds we heard were the ocean waves. We were able to travel from the condo to everywhere we wanted to go on island - from the southwest shore to Iao Valley, to the blowhole up on the north of the island. We were lucky enough to be here when there was all kinds of weather - from cloudy, windy skies to calm blue skies. The kitchen was well appointed, there were plenty of beach chairs, towels, etc. for our use. We did everything: hiking, ziplining, helicopter rides, snorkeling/SNUBA, barbecue out near the beach (which we loved), hot tubs, shuffle board competitions, plenty of beach time, a luau, and just moseying around enjoying the island life. Janet is very pleasant and accommodating - lots of information about the island both via email and in the condo. It would have been nice to have better reading lights up in the loft bedroom, but other than that we had no complaints. I would recommend this to friends."

  • Perfect place for our anniversary trip

    "We enjoyed our time at this beautiful condo. It had just been remodeled and great care was taken in the details. The kitchen is well stocked. The views are indescribable. Since we were there during the "whale season" I sat on the balcony every morning seeing multiple whales- some up closer, others in the distance (binoculars are a plus.) The atmosphere around the resort was exactly what we were looking for - low-key and relaxed. My favorite was the wall in the bedroom looking out on the ocean- windows all across it. I would wake up in the night to the full moon reflecting on the waves. Beautiful! The owner is also very easy to work with, detailed and honest- all qualities we look for when doing vacation rentals. I would highly recommend this place."
