A gorgeous two bedroom split-level unit in North Kaanapali, nothing is left to be desired. It has an amazing ocean front view and is able to sleep six guests. It features a downstairs master bedroom with television and bathroom, as well as a queen and twin bed in the loft area (which also had its own bathroom). Another attractive add on is the private lanai (Hawaiian word for furnished balcony area) on which you can enjoy your morning beverage, or enjoy stunning sunsets. A flat screen TV/DVD player and Bose sounds system in the living room provides for laid back evening entertainment, and the couch turns into a queen size sleeper sofa. For yo...ur convenience, a washer and dryer unit is available in the unit.
The decor is a pleasing mixture of dark bamboo furnishings and tropical wall art. The air conditioning unit in the living room provides a refreshing contrast to the heat outside, or you can also cool off in one of the two pools or Jacuzzi located on the complex grounds. The kitchen features light honey wood furnishings, black marble countertops, and black appliances (including a dishwasher). There is barstool seating on the other side of the kitchen counter, as well as a glass top dining table with seating for four. Feel free to let all your relatives and friends know exactly what they're missing out on: Wifi is free anywhere on the property and all phone calls are only $1.
In addition to everything above, there is a gas grill available for barbecuing and tennis courts on the complex for guest use. Beyond the gates of the Papakea community, guests will find many options for entertainment and dining. Golf courses are as common as palm trees, surfing lessons are a "must try", and cultural museums and walking tours are popular as well. For dinner enjoy local cuisine at a traditional luau on the beach, or find a restaurant in the local Whaler's Village hot spot. Other popular activities include sport fishing, sunset cocktail cruises, and horse back riding! One parking spot is included in each reservation, which makes rental cars easy to manage.Read more

We loved the location of this condo. It was away from all the crowds and was right on the beach with a nice grass area by the beach. The unit itself was clean and nicely appointed. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with everything needed for your stay. It was nice to have barbeques to cook dinner outside and the cabana by the pool was nice, clean, and comfortable. Check in was quick and uncomplicated.

Construction was going on while we were there on the building next to ours. I called the resort to ask about it before booking and was told we wouldn't hear anything. We heard a lot and it was loud. I would have appreciated some honesty. Our unit needed a door code and we didn't receive one. Didn't know we needed one until we were at the unit. Called to get the code and they kept saying they sent us one. That was untrue. We were outside the unit with a crying infant and just wanted the door code not the run around. Unit was nice. Lots of rules at the resort. We were talked to nearly everyday about something from things being put on our deck like a stroller, some towels drying and one beer box which still had beer in it to the garbage being left outside our unit for only a few minutes. Started to get ridiculous.

We had a wonderful time at the Papakea Resort! The resort staff was very friendly and made our stay such a wonderful experience. The location is wonderful for families...lots of great amenities including the pools, putting green and of course, the beach! The only concern we did have was not having air conditioning in the bedrooms as well as the beds being extremely uncomfortable. Regardless, we had a wonderful time and would definately stay at this Resort again!

Couldn't ask for a better place to stay in Maui. The condo was well maintained, decorated, and had everything you could need in the kitchen. The resort's grounds were well manicured and nice and quiet. Great place for families and retired couples. Chase'N Rainbows is who we went through to reserve this condo and they are great. We have used them in the past and there is no better. There is no excess to the beach but it is only footsteps away. No bar or restaurant which we liked. Keeps it peaceful.

I booked E401 unit in the Papakea resort throug Chase N Rainbow. When I arrived at the front desk of the resort, I found out I cannot enter the unit because I did not have the punch code. The front desk person did not offer me any assistance other than asking me to call Chase N Rainbow myself. I told him my cell phone was out of battery and he told me there was no "house phone" in the lobby. I finally convinced him to pick up his phone and called Chase N Rainbow. Why can't he offer assistance in the beginning. He should know better since he is in the service industry. I have a bad experience in Papakea. I hope this was an isolate incident.
Not our first visit to Papakea; won't be our last!

Last year my husband and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary with all our family staying at Papakea Resort. This year my husband thought it would be nice to enjoy the beauty of Maui and the lovely facility of Papakea by ourselves. The unit in which we stayed was well appointed, lovely and comfortable; the service to resolve a couple of small problems was prompt and the employees were very friendly and courteous. The view from the lanai was of the ocean and the beautiful gardens. And we didn't have to pay any extra for the magnificent rainbows that were seen directly off our patio!
We loved the apartment, we loved the grounds, the combination lock on the door was great, we loved the location. All the little extras in the apartment was supper and made you feel a little more like a home than a hotel room. We used the gas grill almost every night. oh year the weather was great also. All in all we loved the place.

We had a very nice stay, the unit was as described. We had a wonderful time. the only suggestion is to provide bath soap, shampoo, conditioner, and lotion. We were surprised that the unit was missing these basic essentials. I have shared my positive experience with a few friends who will be considering the same property for their upcoming vacations.
It was a great stay, good views and great location.

The suite was clean and well equipped with everything we needed for a good vacation. The rooms were quiet and scenery was perfect. The landscaping crew and the staff cleaning the pool was out every morning which made the property admireable.

We have stayed at the Papakea resort, Unit E401 for a bit less than two weeks. This was the best rental we had in our numerous vacations abroad. Spacious and well-equiped condo in a perfect location in West Maui. While not an ocean-front unit, the photos on the website do not render appropriately the magnificent view of the ocean from this unit which is the last before the oceanfront ones (not on the sunset side however...). Resort amenities and on site travel expert are very good. Grocery is 2 minutes walk (across the street). Kaanapali and Lahaina are only a few minutes drive as are most beaches on the West side.

This is my second stay at Papakea and the first for this condo. Excellent location with a beautiful view of ocean and pool side. You don't miss a thing. Pool man everyday at 7am and not a minute late. Fun watching his routine everyday. If you want a quiet place this is it. Just a few doors down you can have the noise and music but then you walk home under the fabulous moon and right back to all the comforts of home. I will always stay at Papakea...

We had a wonderful, ten days. The condo was very clean, comfortable, the grounds were very well taken care of. We truly had a great time in Maui and staying at Papakea. We would recommend Papakea to family and friends. If we came back we would stay there again! Thank you!

The condo is very well appointed with all the essential items to make it a comfortable place to stay. The view of the ocean is gorgeous and the grounds, pools and complex are very well maintained. Ideal location to relax and enjoy the beauty of Maui.

Great place to stay! Loved the view and the location. Great amenities around the grounds. Beautifully kept grounds. Everyone seemed very nice and helpful. The room was comfortable and the last unit on the top floor of the building giving you the best view of the grounds and the ocean. We will definitely be back for sure!

Our recent stay at the Papakea, unit E401 met all of our expectations. The unit was beautifully remodelled and had every amenity that we could possibly need. It was very quiet and the view from the balcony was terrific.
Additionally, Chase 'N Rainbows made every booking detail effortless and when we needed their assistance prior to and during our stay, they were always available. Thank you Chase 'N Rainbows!
What a perfect condo and vacation in a perfect place!!

Chasen' Rainbows was outstanding in keeping us posted on our condo and vacation. The condo, in our opinion, had the best view of all at Papakea and was truly a haven after a fun day on the beach, hiking or just driving and taking in the unbelievably gorgeous sites of Hawaii. This was our first anniversary trip after 37 years of marriage and it could NOT have been more perfect. We even took pictures of rainbows, the mountains, the ocean, the pool area, just everything, right from our balcony. Chasen' Rainbows went out of their way to be sure the condo was clean, well maintained and they simply could not have been of more assistance! We HIGHLY recommend them for condo rentals to everyone!
