Papakea - A Home Away From Home Oasis

Bedrooms Studio
Space 42 m²
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

Studio unit at one of the prettiest low rise condominiums on Maui.

Our recently remodeled 3rd floor studio unit (sleeps 2) at Papakea has been our home away from home for over 30 years. Located in the "B" building , it has beautiful views of the ocean and the islands of Molokai and Lanai. The unit comes with a fully equipped kitchen with a microwave, stove and dishwasher, washer/dryer, TV, WiFi , and a queen size Murphy bed. Resort amenities include lush tropical gardens, swimming pools, hot tubs, putting greens, tennis courts, and BBQ grills. A small shopping center including a grocery store is just across the street and eating establishments of all kinds are within walking distance. Papakea is only a short drive to Lahaina where shopping and restaurants abound. Beaches with all of the usual activities (snorkeling, swimming) are also very close. We fell in love with Papakea on the very first day we saw it and are positive you will too.

Excellent Value / Great Location

  • 5 of 5

An excellent value, great location, close to shops. This is a great studio condo, full sized / well stocked kitchen, washer & dryer. The unit was not cramped at all for two people. It has a Murphy bed, which was quite comfortable. We even left it down the entire time, and still had plenty of room in the unit. It has a wonderful ocean view, over looking the pool & putting green. Great for whale & people watching! I highly recommend this condo, and will absolutely try to book again on our next visit!!!

The Papkea Resort has daily activities. The resort charges a daily parking fee, and places a hold on ones credit card upon check-in. The parking spaces are tight.

Pleasant Stay at a Beutiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

Everything was clean, comfortable without being overdone. The condo was accommodating with full appliances, kitchen utensils, laundry, towels, bedding, and was complete with comfortable furnishings. We were pleased to find beach chairs, boogie board and little extras to make our stay relaxing. The view was amazing even better than the photos. The grounds were perfectly kept and beautiful. We would love to plan to visit here again.

Perfect little spot!

  • 4 of 5

Condo was perfect for our trip to Maui. Here's my list of pros/cons but know that I would happily stay there again!


-condo owner is SUPER responsive and helpful.

-resort is well located, parking is easy

-proximity to restaurants (Soup Nutz & Java Jazz!)/grocery stores/snorkel shops.

-condo is well appointed with the basics

-unbeatable view.

-easy to get assistance from front desk (compared to renting at an unattended complex)

-despite it's coziness, condo has plenty of seating and space.

-nicely updated.

Cons (I guess)

-if you're accustomed to condos that have the beach gear, cooking spices and laundry fixin's, plan to bring your own or make a quick trip to the store. More than ample supplies to prepare meals for yourself.

-bed is a Murphy which makes perfect sense for the space but a little uncomfortable if you have a sensitive back (I hurt mine a few years ago and struggled a bit but this is, of course, hugely subjective.)

-no ice maker (or not hooked up?). Obviously, small thing, but if you're filling a cooler everyday like we did, plan to pick up some bags of ice at the store. The trays will not be enough to keep up.

So that's my honest review! If you have a two person trip planned this is a great little place and the resort is a favorite of my family's! Aloha!

A Perfect Fit!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay in this studio condo. It provided everything we needed and more. This condo is updated and the murphy bed was quite comfortable. The grounds of this complex are immaculate. We had breakfast every morning on the lanai with a view of the ocean and pool! We loved it and would recommend this condo!
