About Eric and Leslie Ringstad

We are a family from Western Washington USA that loves travelling, boating, swimming. I have Resort experience with a Property in the Canadian Gulf Islands called Poets Cove, I am a former Commercial Fisherman from Alaska. I currently work for a Mechanical Contractor doing Commercial HVAC around Puget Sound. My wife works for a local School District near Seattle. Both of our kids are on a local swim team. We love the water and Maui. That is why we bought this piece of Paradise to share with you!

Eric and Leslie Ringstad purchased this condo in 2011

Why Eric and Leslie Ringstad chose Lahaina

We have stayed at Papakea several times in the past, we loved so much, that we bought a place here!

What makes this condo unique

Papakea is a unique low rise condominium that has only 4-levels. We love the family feel to the resort and the laid back comfortable feeling you get as soon as you arrive. The putting greens are fun, having 2- pools and hot tubs is a bonus. A grocery store is just across the street along with a local Farmers Market that is nearby. The ABC Store is adjacent to the property. The location puts you close enough to all that Maui has to offer without the crowded feeling you get at so many of the Mega Resorts and Hotels.

Great location close to best Maui beaches

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week with 3 kids and it was a great location and very convenient. The best Maui area beaches are really close like Kaplalua and Napili Bay. There are great walking paths you can take from the condo and walk to Alii Kahekili beach which I think was the best for snorkeling!!! There is a grocery store, ABC store, fish market and boss frog swim and diving rental place to rent body boards snorkeling equipment and more..your also close to the town of Lahaina which is a really neat city with a lot of local shops and restaurants. The condo unit was very clean, quiet and having a pool and hot tub was great for the kids in the evenings.. Also having a full kitchen was nice so we could make some meals there and save time and money ..The sunsets are amazing and you can see it from the condo balcony. Parking is very convenient and is right in front of the condo,1 minute walk from the car to the condo !! Overall I would definitely recommend staying here!!!! You will spend less time driving to the best beaches and more time swimming and snorkeling..

Beautiful condo in a beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our honeymoon and everything was perfect! The view was just amazing to wake up to every morning. We enjoyed eating out on the lanai listening to the waves. Eric and Leslie thought of everything by having so much available for us to use for different activities. There's snorkel gear, towels, golf clubs for the put put greens, and coolers to pack lunches in. Having the washer and dryer in the unit was an added bonus, we came back with hardly any laundry to do. You'll enjoy every minute if you decide to stay here.

Highly Recommendable!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the location of the property, its outside maintenance including the pool, the comfortable, clean condo itself. The reception of the Papakea Resort had plenty of information reg. activities, attractions and restaurants. To book tours or a round of golf, it is best and most economical to do so online. We would recommend this property to anyone.

Best stay ever!:)

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about how great our stay was. The location was beautiful and so relaxed. Not overcrowded like some resort stays and Eric and Leslie were fantastic to work with. They are great about getting in contact and answering any questions and going above and beyond. If you're reading through the reviews wondering if you should book this place then stop and wonder no more. I did some heavy research before booking and was completely satisfied on all accounts with the service provided. We were very pleased and hope to come back and stay at Papkea again! Mahalo and God bless:)

Another wonderful stay on Maui

  • 5 of 5

Very much enjoyed our stay there. Have been many times to the Papakea, first time to this unit. It was well-equipped and in a good location. Leslie and Eric were easily reachable via e-mail, and quick to respond to any questions we had. Enjoyed our dinners at Kimos, walking on the beach, and just relaxing on the lanai. Cannot wait until next time!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review. It makes us so happy to hear that our guests enjoyed our condo and the beauty of Maui. It is such an amazing place. Enjoying breakfast and reading a book on the lanai are two things we always look forward to when we go as well. You were wonderful to work with and we hope you consider renting from us on your next trip to Maui.

Leslie& Kimo (Eric) Our 7th trip to Papakea and our 3rd to our favorite K-206. Our first weekend we had 3" of RAIN, not much fun, but after that all was well. The unit as usual is well equipped The Mai-tai party on Thursday's is a lot of fun, and time to socialize. Laying out at the Seawall, and swimming in the Ocean, and pool, but don't go in the water with your cell in your pocket. New phone when I got home. The Gazebo, Mama's Ribs, Bubba Gump's, Lelanies, great. Hopefully we will return
