It has a wide open, uncrowded feel, koi ponds, lush tropical landscaping, pools & spas, 2-18 hole putting greens and grassy sunning areas. You will truly feel relaxed here.

We pride ourselves in keeping our guests informed as to any unusual activity at Papakea Resort. We have been informed of an emergency repair on the seawall in front of the Papakea Resort. There will be some intermittent noise, but our current guests are not finding it to be excessive. The views are not impacted on our floor as the work is taking place on the ground floor level. The seawall in front of our "F" building is scheduled to be impacted starting September 1 and will Continue until December 15th. We have adjusted our rates to accommodate for any inconvenience. The work hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. No weekend work unless there is authorization from the condo management.

Great unit and super great host. Thank you for helping us make our family memories.

  • 5 of 5

We booked 5 units at the Papakea for a family reunion. We have never been to the Papakea before but chose this resort based on pictures we had seen by doing a lot of research and reading reviews. We couldn’t have been happier with this unit and the resort. First, booking the unit with Julie was super easy. We quickly received a quote. We had a few questions and Julie responded quickly and even offered to have a discussion on the phone if we had further questions. Once we decided to book the unit, the process was very simple. We received a lot of information including how to check into the unit.

The best part however was actually stepping onto the property and then into the unit. There is a warm tropical feeling as soon as you step onto the property. The front desk at the Papakea is friendly and let us know that there is a Mai Tai party every week. We got our electronic keys and went into the condo. This was a “oh my gosh” moment. My husband and I were so excited that we were so close to the ocean…..all we saw was the blue pacific. Once we took our eyes of the ocean we noted that the unit was very clean. There were plenty of towels and beach towels. The condo is remodeled and the granite countertop is so unique. There was plenty of space in the closet for our luggage.

Since we had a big family gathering, we did a lot of BBQing. The BBQs are located by the pool and there was a nice warm breeze in the evenings. The condo had everything we need to cook.

The condo is on the 3rd floor which was perfect as we would people watch and even saw turtles and dolphins from the lanai. There is an elevator in the building, although to get some exercise we took the stairs many times. There are two pools to choose from and because the F building is in the middle, we could get to either pool quickly. The resort is like a tropical zen and we would just stroll around the property. I’m a avid photographer so I ended up taking a lot of pictures of the plants at the Papakea resort.

Julie’s list of recommendations came in handy and we tried a few things that were on her list and we were so happy to get some inside scoops.

Julie helped us make wonderful family memories and for that we are so appreciative. Thanks Julie! We will be recommending your condo to all our friends and family. BTW - next time we will book well in advance so my parents can also stay in your one bedroom and we will be really close to them.

Could use some work

  • 3 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed in this unit for 8 days. When you walk in the unit it is beautiful with its nicely furnished kitchen and breathtaking view. I did run into a few problems with the unit however. The agreement I received had a lot of grammatical errors along with wrong phone numbers. The maintenance man I called when the TV wasn't working wasn't a maintenance man but a resident of Hawaii. The after hours maintenance number led me to the maid who couldn't help me with the TV either. There was a lot of miscommunication going on and Julie, the owner was tough to get a hold of when trying to get information about the unit. It's a wonderful unit, don't get me wrong, but it was a frustrating process.

Owner's Response: Aloha Savannah, Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Thanks for also noting the breathtaking view and the nicely furnished kitchen. The reason we purchased this unit was for the views as our guests really appreciate that and you're right, it's breathtaking right when you walk in. We visit Maui every 6 months to ensure things are in order and even had an inspection done before your visit so we have a report of anything that needs refreshing. I'm sorry that you ran into some issues operating the new high definition TV set. In our comprehensive check-in package that includes recommendations, FAQs about the condo, and popular activities we also inform our guests about the front desk and the fact they are available to assist our guests including the operation of the TV. We also remind our guests to bring this package with them to Maui. As soon as you called our on-island manager, the front desk was contacted and they came within minutes to turn on the TV for you. I was glad to receive confirmation from the front desk that your issue was addressed promptly. We take pride in providing our guests outstanding service and prompt response time. Mahalo Julie and Greg

Agree, Stunning Unit in Paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Papakea last year, but the condo wasn't as nice as this one. If you want a retreat in Paradise but still have all the conveniences of a low-key resort, this is the unit to go to. Beautifully remodeled and very clean. Bed is comfortable. This studio just has good energy. I never heard the neighbors. Incredible view, crashing waves, dinners with sunset, ocean breeze. And the owners are very helpful and accommodating.

Nice thing about Papakea is that you don't need a car if you're wanting a retreat. Bike rental 1 block down the road, so you can bike to special beaches, and the yearlong, 7am-7pm organic farmers market/store, with great deli food, has everything you need. You don't even need to cook.

Now that I found this condo, I will be here in this same condo every year to rest and rejuvenate before my summer work starts!

(A word on the current re-construction of the seawall: they are working in front of the A building right now, and thanks to the crashing waves, you don't hear any noise. Looks like it may just be a nuisance when they're in front of this building, which should happen this summer, but when they move down to the L building it should be fine again).

Stunning Unit in Paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible week! We go to the Papakea each year and have stayed at many units. This was our 5th trip. F307 is our new favorite. The views are obstructed and you can see both the islands of Lanai and Molokai. We watched the sunset from our lanai most evenings. It is oceanfront at its best! Some of the amenities that stand out: The bed is very comfortable. We liked being able to have full use of the living room during the day. The kitchen is absolutely fabulous and very well stocked. The bathroom is also stunning! We were provided enough towels for our entire stay. The towels and linens are white and just as nice as you would find in a hotel. The condo was also very clean. The flat screen was also nice. The lanai furniture was very comfortable.

The grounds at the Papakea are unlike anything you will find on Maui. This is a very large property and the gardens with the tropical plants are impeccable. I really enjoyed the water aerobics classes offered at the resort. Papakea's close proximity to the shopping center across the street makes shopping for food, quick meals and take out make it a perfect place. Duke's restaurant is within walking distance and we enjoyed our dinner there a few times.

Julie was extremely helpful and such a great person to work with. We miss the ocean waves crashing and looking forward to our return next year.

Stormy, beautiful weather

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful view, very clean. Didn't realize it was a Murphy bed, but worked out ok.

Air conditioner leaked on the lanai, but was fixed after a few days.

The kitchen is fab.

Fantastic Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this gorgeous ocean front resort from January 27-Feb 6, 2016. Other than a small glitch at check in when our key card wouldn't work, we enjoyed our stay tremendously. The views from the lanai allowed for whale watching mornings and evenings. What a treat to be able to watch the whales while having morning coffee!! The unit is clean with a well appointed kitchen. We really enjoyed the option of barbecuing, which we did frequently. Papakea staff are constantly cleaning and maintaining the facility, so everything was in pristine condition. Free Mai Tais on Thursdays allowed us to meet other people. The pictures on the VRBO website give an honest depiction of what you will experience at Papakea. We are already looking to book our next vacation here!!
