Description of the Kaanapali vacation condo rental
Why settle for oceanview when you can have an OCEANFRONT condo in Maui!! You could throw a coconut to the water from our deck in Papakea Oceanfront Resort. THE SUNSET PICTURE WAS TAKEN FROM OUR LANAI. Our condo is as close as you can get to the ocean and offers easy access to world famous Kaanapali Beach for long walks in the sand or boardwalk all the way to Black Rock. Watch the world go by from the lanai with the privacy of being on the 3rd floor. We just finished a remodel consisting of new tile floors throughout, a new kitchen with granite, natural cherry cabinets and new stainless steel appliances. A tri-system A/C to cool the whole unit if the ocean breezes and fans are not enough. Both bathrooms were also remodeled with walk in showers. This 2 bedroom Maui condo is not a loft. The master en-suite is also oceanfront with the second bedroom to the back of the condo for privacy in both bedrooms. It has two very private bedrooms and A/C throughout or fans cool the condo easier than a two floor loft area. The master suite and living room have breathtaking views looking across the channel to the islands of Lanai and Molokai. We are one of the few units with both ocean front views in the living area and master bedroom. Most of the units have all the bedrooms to the back of the condo.

This is one of the best locations on Maui! From your lanai, enjoy ever-changing ocean views of beautiful sunsets, rainbows, dolphins, turtles, seals, whales(Nov.-April), surfers and boats. You will be footsteps away from famous Kaanapali Beach and Black Rock as well as great swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing, and relaxation.

This 3rd floor unit, in the desired 'L 'building, is an oceanfront unit with central air and ceiling fans throughout. Kitchen is fully equipped. The bathrooms are complete with new cabinets, granite counter tops and walk in showers. Of the waterfront buildings, the 'L' building has the closest parking to the building and an elevator. It is also the closest to the year round beach next door as the beach in front of us comes and goes with the tides.

The condo sleeps four to six with a cal-king bed in the master bedroom. Fall asleep to the sound of the waves. Two twin beds in the second bedroom can be turned into a king bed upon request and a queen size sleeper sofa in the living room. All rooms are on the same level. If you tire of the view, there are two flat screen TV's in the living room and master bedroom. New washer/dryer in unit.

This unit is equipped with golf putters, tennis rackets, various snorkel equipment, beach toys, collapsible cooler and beach chairs.

The Papakea Resort is a tropical oasis of 13 acres of manicured grounds. It has the largest amount of land of any condominium resort on Maui's Kaanapali beach, the only resort with two oceanfront pools, two spas, two 12 hole putting greens. Grounds also include two lighted tennis courts, two shuffleboards, 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 Lahaina and Whalers Village. A grocery store, restaurants and shops are conveniently located just across the street.

Our Maui oceanfront condo is OWNER OPERATED AND PRIVATELY OWNED. Our condo is not in the Rental Program although we do have a on island manager if issues should arise, so rest assured that our condo that you see here, is the one that you will rent from us

Maui vacation

October 25, 2016

We stayed 10 wonderful days in this beautiful, immaculate ocean front condo. It had all the comforts of home with views that were beyond breathtaking. We wanted close to the ocean and that is exactly what we got. Everywhere you look was as pretty as a picture. The complex was everything we had hoped for with much to do as well as perfectly located within walking distance of many stores, shops, cafe's, etc. Should we be fortunate in the future to return to Maui, this is definitely the condo that we will stay in. I couldn't have asked for a nicer place.

Fantastic Ocean Front Condo

Fantastic Ocean Front Condo

August 27, 2016

We have been staying at the Papakea for the past 15 years and have always stayed at another unit. That unit has always been beautiful. Since the unit was not available this time, we decided to stay at this condo. This condo outdoes the other unit we have been staying at in the past. The owners recently remodeled this unit and it was fantastic. AC in each room. All new appliances in the kitchen, remodeled bathrooms and a washer and dyer. The patio doors open very wide so we could relax watching the sun set and listen to the waves from the living room and kitchen. Daily we sat on the balcony enjoying a cocktail watching the sunset. The master bedroom has ocean front views just like the living room. We always slept with the windows open listening to the crashing of the waves. The condo was perfect for our arrival. Everything we needed to enjoy the day on an outing was been supplied by the owner. The owner was always quick to respond to our emails and you could tell she wanted to make sure our stay at the condo was at its best. And it was. We will be returning in two years or more likely less with just my wife and I and look forward to renting this unit again.

Owner's reply:

We are glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for you kind words and we welcome you back in the future. Mahalo.

Perfect place for our anniversary trip

Date of Stay
February 18, 2016

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.

Great Anniversary Stay

Date of Stay
May 24, 2015

We returned to Maui 25 years after we honeymooned there, and we could not have been happier with our choice of accommodations. Our 21-year-old son and 17-year-old daughter joined us, and they agreed. Papakea is low-key and beautiful. You can hang out at the larger resorts during the day if you wish (and I bet you won't), but we really enjoyed returning "home" from our many island adventures to a quiet and beautiful place where we could lounge by the heated pool or just enjoy the BEAUTIFUL sunsets. This condo is clean and updated, and the location is the best in the resort. You're so close you could throw a rock into the ocean from the balcony. The condo comes with boogie boards, putters and balls for the practice greens at the resort, snorkel gear, beach chairs, and beach towels. Experiences like this are why we love

One of Papakea's Best Condo's & Amazing View

Date of Stay
September 14, 2014

We have stayed in different condo's at Papakea and this one is one of the nicest. Here's what we loved about this ocean front condo:
* We were greeted daily by a couple turtles in the surf below the room.
* Likely one of the best condo views in all of Maui. You are about 60 feet or so from the surf and the daily sunsets are fabulous to watch from the lanai. (would be really cool during the whale season!)
* The owners spent the few extra dollars and put the nice (very comfortable), taller bar style deck chairs & table on the lanai which makes it easy to see over the deck rail while sitting / dining. (Many ocean front condos have the standard height deck chairs/tables so you end up standing to see over the rail)
* The condo had everything we could possible need, both in the kitchen and bedrooms with plenty of linens and toys like golf putters for the putting green and a couple really nice boogie boards!
* And a big plus - each bedroom has an air conditioner. There was a heat wave going on (might still be) when we were there, so those air conditioners were a blessing!
* The grounds at Papakea are beautiful, including two pools, putting greens, ponds and what we like best is the grassy section at the ocean front, right on the water. Nice for pulling up a lawn chair (lounger) and looking out across the ocean all day. Molokia and Lanai are both just across the channel. Again, this is fabulous when the whales are out!
Staying in an "ocean front" condo is the best way to spend a couple week vacation!! We would 100% recommend this condo and will certainly be staying here again in the future.
Rachelle (owner) was very responsive and attentive as we went through the booking process. Thanks Rachelle for sharing your vacation home!

We stayed at the condo over spring break, and I couldn't recommend it more highly. The location, interior space, and amenities were all exactly as advertised, and perfectly suited to a family traveling with children. We snorkeled off the reef in front of the condo, saw sea turtles swimming by, and hung out in the complex hot tub & pool. We also enjoyed boogie boarding and snorkeling at local beaches (all within 10 minutes drive) and did zip-lining and a Molikini tour (both within a 45 minute drive). The kitchen in the condo is fully outfitted, and we cooked nearly all our meals in the condo - saving on costs but also giving us the opportunity to spend more family time together in a relaxed informal way. I would absolutely return to this place - a GREAT option for families!

oceanfront condo with fabulous view for sunset or whalewatching

Date of Stay
January 11, 2014

Our family with 2 adults, a pair of six year old boy-girl twins, and grandma had a great time. Incredible ocean view from the living room, kitchen, lanai and master bedroom. The unit was well equipped with all the toys we needed: tennis rackets and balls, golf putters and balls, boogie boards, beach shoes, flashlights (to search for frogs in the Koi pond at night, or scout the tide pools at low tide)… and 6 BBQ grills by the pool. During our stay, there were always a few other friendly families with children swimming in the pool – my kids always met “new friends”. Excellent location, just minutes north of Lahaina. Easy walk on the Boardwalk to Black Rock. Times grocery store right across the street. The owner was very responsive and provided great information for local events and restaurants, even though we enjoyed eating most of our meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) on the oceanfront lanai as we watched the whales play – everyday. We would definitely come back here on our next trip to Maui.

Beautiful location

Date of Stay
November 20, 2013

We spend more than a week at this property and it was everything we wanted. The condo was located oceanfront, with incredible views from the lanai and master bedroom. The location is good, you can walk to restaurants and shopping, but also a close drive to Lahaina and other locations in west Maui. The condo was very clean, someone took some time to make sure that it was in good shape. It also had everything we needed for the stay, including beach towels. The property has two pools and other activities and has a small beach, but is steps from the much larger areas of Kanapali beach. snorkeling was also good right in front of the property. The information provided by the owner was very helpful, I think we went to nearly every restaurant that was recommended and we were never disappointed. We also saw Willie K at Kimos in Lahaina, what a great musician. We would definately recommend staying here and we hope to stay again.

This was our 2nd stay at this lovely condo - breathtaking view, clean and updated unit!! Beautiful sunsets and during whale season you can watch right from your lanai!
Everything from dishes, pots/pans and some outdoor equipment are in the unit for use. The owner takes pride in keeping it well maintained for their guests; not to mention they are so helpful and easy to work with.
We have and will continue to refer friends and relatives to use this property. We hope to be back in spring! Mahalo for sharing your unit.

Excellent rental

Date of Stay
August 22, 2013

Everything was excellent. The view spectacular! We went with our two teenage boys - they had a great time scuba diving, snorkeling, and spearfishing. The location was great - quiet location yet close to everything. The condo was spacious and had everything a family needed.
We can't wait to visit again. The owner went over and above helping us out and answering our questions. It was our first time visiting Hawaii. All of the owners restaurant suggestions were fabulous especially the gazebo. Best pancakes ever! Old lahaina, the beach walk, whalers villages all just minutes away. If you have boys or like activity we also recommend the jump at black rock for cliff jumping, scuba, snorkeling, etc. - also, we loved the road to Hana - like driving to heaven. (Unless you get car sick) - check out the seven pools near the top. It's wonderful.

Medical conference plus family vacation = one great trip to Hawaii!

Date of Stay
June 29, 2013

My family had a great stay in this condo. The owner sent information before our arrival about grocery shopping, outings, and amenities that helped us plan and pack appropriately. I attended a medical conference at the Hyatt and walked over on the beachwalk several mornings (3.5 miles). We snorkled at Honalua Bay and explored other beaches and areas of the island. My family enjoyed some of the restaurants on Maui, but we also used the gas grills by the pool to prepare some dinners. Eating grilled fish on the lanai while watching the waves and relaxing with my adult children was a great experience! We were planning our next trip to Hawaii before we even headed home.

Amazing Vacation!

Date of Stay
June 12, 2013

Our family of five (2 adults and 3 kids) had a wonderful 10 day stay In this condo. It more than exceeded our expectations. it started from the moment we contacted the owner who was very helpful with suggestions. We were so impressed by the ocean view the minute we walked through the door. The condo is just as described in the listing with a well equipped kitchen, plenty of towels, very clean. In fact we were very impressed with how well the entire Papakea property was maintained. We really enjoyed the quiet laid back feel of the property. It was very relaxing compared to some of the other properties we walked by that seemed to have more of a college party atmosphere. We loved the bluetooth radio and listened to Hawaiian music every evening. We never used the AC but ran the overhead fans and had the windows open which allowed a wonderful breeze to blow through. We fell asleep to the sound of the waves every night. We recommend The Bakery in Lahaina for fresh bagels and pastries in the morning, sunset dinners at Dukes, snorkeling at Honolua and Kapalua, boogie boarding at DT Fleming beach and just down the beach from the condo and visiting the Iao Valley. Instead of a luau we enjoyed dinner in Lahaina followed by Ulalena. It is a must see! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. This was our best vacation ever!

Perfect location and accommodation for a family of 4

Date of Stay
March 2, 2013

We recently stayed for 2 weeks in this unit and it was fantastic. We have a 1 year old and a 4 year old and we had plenty of space for the kids and ourselves.
The condo was clean and had all of the necessary utensils and dishes to cook with.
The view speaks for itself and was great for us when we had to put the 1 year old down for a nap. We could sit on the Lanai and watch the wales and get some sun.
The AC units worked great and kept the rooms cool during the evenings.
Having a second bathroom with a "mini tub" was great to wash the kids in.
Having our own washer and dryer was great too and it worked perfectly.
The wifi worked perfect and there were hundreds of TV channels to choose from.
Beds and furniture were all comfortable
There were tennis rackets, putters, beach toys and boogie boards for us to use that was really nice not to have to buy. We left our own beach toys that we bought for other to use as well.
We would most certainly return to this unit in the future.
The grounds at Papakea are well maintained.

Great Family Vacation

Date of Stay
February 3, 2013
I organized a family vacation and booked this unit for my daughter, her husband and 2 girls 4 and 6.
The unit was perfect! The master bedroom with it's beautiful ocean front view was huge. The whole condo was very spacious. The kitchen and bathroom were fully stocked. Nothing was needed to add to their stay. The view from the lanai was fantastic! Whales and turtles were seen everyday. Being close to the pool (right down the stairs) was an added bonus. The vacation and the unit was everything I dreamed it would be. I would recommend this unit to anyone wanting a beautiful,clean condo in a perfect setting.
