Papakea resort is a 13 acres of lush tropical paradise. It is located in West Maui between the Kaanapali and Kapalua with world class golf resorts and minutes from shops, restaurants, and galleries in nearby Lahaina and Whalers Village. Make a left in front of the resort and you have access to miles of North Kaanapali beaches for walking (both beach walk and Board walk), snorkeling or paddle boarding.


You are renting through the OWNER directly. You know what you are renting and from whom. You get what you see, NORTH FACING END Unit E 310 in Building E on the 3rd floor with the panoramic ocean views along with the views of swimming pool, putting green, koi ponds with colorful fish and water fountains. Awesome.

To get a good sense of our condo and Papakea resort, please take a look at our photos. In addition to the photos, please also take a look at our video. To really get an objective view of this resort, this one bed room suite, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, our dealings with our past guests, please read the reviews from our past guests.

This condo faces NORTH. That means you can enjoy Lanai use ALL day. Keeping warm in Maui is not the problem in any season. However, keeping cool can be. This unit keeps you comfortable anytime of the day. When inside the unit, open the lanai sliding door and bedroom window and enjoy the cool ocean breeze and let the ocean waves lull you to sleep.

If you do end up renting this unit and I hope you do, please take a look at the all the lanais across you facing south. You will find very few hard core sun worshipers being roasted during the day. As I mentioned, keeping warm is not the problem. But keeping cool can be in South and West facing units. If like those kinds of unit, this one is not for you. You get sun only before noon.

By the way, we do have AC in the unit plus two fans, one in the living room and one in the bedroom, when you need them.

Another unique benefit of this unit - This is an end unit. So there is no walk way behind the unit by the bed room as would be the case for the rest of 9 units on each floor. What this means is that you don’t have to listen to inconsiderate guests who walk and talk past quiet hours of 10 PM.

Also, since this is an end unit, there is no wall on one side of the lanai for privacy from your neighbor. With no wall on one side, the breeze is amazing and you will love spending time on the lanai. We have one lounge chair and four dining chairs and a table in lanai (in addition to 4 chairs and glass table in the dining room). This will keep you cool even if it is hot outside.

This peaceful one bedroom 3rd floor suite comes with fully equipped kitchen and in-room washer/dryer for extra convenience. You will have a private furnished balcony, where you can relax and enjoy spectacular ocean view and cool breeze, 12 hole manicured putting green and garden, koi ponds with colorful fish right from your lanai.

Another cool feature of this this suite is that you can watch the ocean waves in the large wall mirror behind the sofa even when you are in the kitchen. It is really cool to see the real ocean when you look left and its image when you look right - really an unusual feeling.

The ocean views from the kitchen in the mirror wall behind the sofa and ocean views from the sofa are not shown in the photos. I plan to have new photos taken soon. I bought this unit recently and I am using photos I got from the previous owner. For now you have to take my word and depend on guest reviews.

Remodeled throughout, the unit has granite counter tops, cherry cabinets and custom touches and the living area has ample seating as well as cable TV and DVD player. There is an iHome in bedroom if you want to listen to your songs on your iPod/iPhone.

There is a dining table with seating for four inside, as well as seating for four on the private lanai. The kitchen is fully equipped with new dishes, cooking utensils, dishwasher, refrigerator, oven, microwave, blender, toaster, and coffee maker. This suite also has its own clothes washer and dryer so you can pack light.

The bedroom is nicely furnished with tasteful pictures, sliding 6 feet mirror closet doors. The bath room is fully remodeled with walk in shower.

All linens including large beach towels are provided. Hair dryer, iron and ironing board and beach chairs are also in the unit.


• The rental rates are for maximum of two adults even though this unit can accommodate additional two people if they can share the queen sofa bed.

• Additional persons may be allowed on exception basis at added cost of $15/person/night.


Like all resorts in West Maui, Papakea Resort collects a $17/night resort fee to cover parking, water aerobics, Yoga, pool/hot tub access, shuffleboard, cable TV, and Internet access etc. This fee is paid to the front desk at checkout for the first 10 days of your stay, per month (Maximum $170 for each month of stay).

Although nobody likes additional fees, including the owners since they must also pay the same $17/night resort fee, many of the other resorts in West Maui are in the $20 - $31/day range. So Papakea is below the average rate in this regard. You pay this fee to the front desk and not to me. But I want to make sure you know this and not find this out when you get there.

About Owner

An engineer in the electronics industry with long work history at Intel and Boeing and now a consultant for the last two decades and sheep farmer-a wonderful combination. Too young to retire and too old to work 9 to 5. Frequent visits to this Condo in Maui makes me feel really blessed. Hope you love this place as much we do and be one of our frequent guests to enjoy this paradise, we call Maui- voted the best island in the world (yes few times in the last decade).

Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why Owner chose Lahaina

Even though we have lived in the beautiful Northwest (Seattle and now in Portland) for over 30 years now, you like to get away from the rain and cold sometimes. During my first visit ever to Maui in June 2011, I fell in love with Maui. After looking at all the options we have in Maui, I found Papakea to offer everything I was looking for, 2nd floor unit facing north with mesmerizing ocean views and palm trees.

What makes this condo unique

So close to the ocen with such a great ocean view from kitchen, dining, living and lanai. The view was definitely the clincher for me. You sit in your living room or lanai and be enchanted with the beaurty of ocean and swaying palm trees. The sky is different every time you look out

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great condo! The only thing that was a bit of an issue for us what's that there is no beach access from the property (our 9 yr old had more of an issue with this than we did) and the AC was on a timer.

Condo was clean with a well-stocked kitchen. 🙌 Lots of beach toys (boogie board, paddle board, beach chairs, etc) for use.

We'll likely be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you Missy. I am so glad you had great time and liked this condo. Sorry for the inconvenience caused by the AC timer. Some guests tend to forget to turn off the AC when leaving the condo and the electric bills can skyrocket. Good thing is that you don't need AC in the night. Just open bed room window and lanai sliding door and listen to the wave instead of AC. Look forward to seeing you when you make your next Maui vacation plan. Ray

Thank you Ray We enjoyed our stay at Papakea. One of the main reasons my wife and I loved it so much is that it is away from all the crowds. So cosy. Your condo is beautiful and so well furnished with all the upgrades and necessary amenities. Total relaxation. It was hard to get my wife out to sight see. She was in heaven. Also very convienent market and restaurants across the street. Java Jazz has the best expresso. I recommend this unit and resort if you are looking for total R&R.

Thank you Ray for the great accommodations! We really enjoyed our stay at your beautiful place and all of the great suggestions for things to do in the area. We used the well equipped kitchen for almost every meal. The grounds at Papakea are gorgeous and entertaining...we met a lot of nice people pool side. Thanks again, Kevin and Christina Roberts

Quite a lovely place to call home

  • 5 of 5

The papakea resort condo was just great. There were so many extras that made our stay wonderful. I noticed that it had new furnishings and quite a good supply of beach going items (the best chairs, boogie boards, noodles and even snorkel equipment). The kitchen was spectacular, every time I looked for something they had it. The layout was nice too. A very nice large TV, but we didn't use it much. The porch was great and what a wonderful view! We also enjoyed the resort and feel they are doing a good job keeping everything in top shape. They offered yoga classes in the morning and even had mats for us to use. We took advantage of cooking several meals down at the pool grills which were quite nice too. Overall a wonderful place that felt like a home away from home rather than a hotel.
