Everything was great, close to everything. The only thing that would make it perfect would be walking distance to beach.
Great location and beautiful beach.
As previously noted, the kitchen worked great for us. A great location. Sofa sleeper shouldn’t be considered a bed. Very uncomfortable. Door should replace the blind in the master bath. Having stayed in Hawaii several times, beach towels and chairs have always been supplied along with a few toys. It did have blow dryers though. Other than the things mentioned our stay was great. Nice and clean. Thanks for a great time.
Quiet beautiful setting
We loved the location, close to Top beaches, Front Street, and grocery stores. The grills were a big perk for us to prepare meals for our 4 kids and not have to eat out everyday. The well manicured lawns and gardens were pretty, maintenance was quick to respond to a minor issue. Some of the resorts we visited were so loud, this place was so peaceful! The balcony and view was our favorite part of our stay. Sandy beaches were a short drive away, but the water access by the sea wall is exactly that. Steps down into the water by a rock wall. Didn’t bother us because we wanted to travel the coast and visit many beaches. But if you want to stay at a resort all week and plop in a chair on a sandy beach right out your door, not the best choice.
The unit was as described. Clean and well stocked. Currently has a pair of beach chairs and umbrella that someone left behind-super helpful. The AC did a great job once it was turned on, but I do feel it needs to be mentioned that the bedrooms do not have direct AC. The master BR has a ceiling fan and wall mounted oscillating fan, but if you sleep with doors closed the AC doesn’t reach your room. The back bedroom could really use an oscillating fan to move the air. During the day the room got a little stuffy, but at night the kids said they were cool and comfortable as long as the door was open.
If you are looking for quiet, clean, and feeling like you aren’t breaking the bank, great value!
A message to the owners- the master BR needs more light, and the mattress either needs to be replaced or maybe at least a board to help with the slight sag where your shoulders and upper back hit.
Not our best experience
Being in Maui I expected a vacation rental to be supplied accordingly. I have been staying in different vacation condos at least once a year for over 20 years. This particular condo lacked in vacation essentials. ( beach towels, spices to cook with, etc......). The air conditioning only reaches the living room. The bedrooms get very warm. The master bath does not have a traditional door. It has a pull down curtain that only goes part of the way down, and does not block odors. There was only 2 1/2 rolls of toilet paper left for a place that sleeps 7. The location at Papakea was nice . Nice view, nice lanai,and we liked the resort Papakea itself! Would go back to Papakea but not to this particular condo!
Great condo! Nicely updated, lovely ocean view and perfect location to explore all of Maui!
Beautiful condo but be warned master bath is poorly designed...toilet area lacking ANY privacy!
Aloha we thank you for your compliments of our luxury remodeled condo. We look forward to helping you with a future stay here at Papakea. We would like to mention we took privacy deeply into consideration with the Master Suite setup. We installed a 2nd back layer to the Bali style drapes on main bedroom windows and added a seperate pulldown drape to doorway of the bathroom.
Great condo, excellent location
Wonderful vacation condo. Room was remodeled, clean and very well maintained. Air conditioner, dish washer and another worked very well. Great location, we loved green garden and pool area where we could look over amazing ocean. Supermarket, restaurant and ABC store were only minutes away from a room. We hope stay here again and recommend this room to others.
We always love hearing from our guests, we too look forward to having your again and appreciate you sharing your experience with others.
