Your Papakea Resort unit is a haven in the midst of your tropical paradise. The exquisite burl furniture adds elegance which is rare in a Maui condominium. The lush waterfall with craggy rocks, moss, and Papakea Resort's palms immediately outside your glass sliding door, explodes on your wall of mirrors which brings this lovely tropical garden view inside in a dramatic way.
As you lie in your Papakea Resort studio's luxuriously comfortable pillow-top king-sized bed, nestled behind a fish pond and sprinkling waterfall, the tall foliage of the Papakea Resort complex makes you feel you are the only ones on the island. Yet you can stand at your Papakea Resort Studio window or relax on your Papakea Resort lanai and see the ocean beyond Papakea's beautiful swimming pool.
With a floor plan for lovers, our Papakea Resort room is not interrupted with an island. The recently renovated beautifully appointed kitchen is efficiently tucked out of the way for your full enjoyment of the Papakea Resort condo. Beautiful granite counters provide a foundation for a stunning Bali stone bowl sink. New maple cabinets provide full kitchen storage which accompany all necessary appliances including a refrigerator, oven, microwave, dishwasher, ice maker, washer, dryer.
The same beautiful maple cabinets are continued in the bath and we love the twin Bali stone sinks which, we understand were the first on island to be used in the bathroom. The sizable bathroom in our Papakea studio will serve you well, dividing the shower and commode area by a pocket door and containing ample hanging closet space and an easily-operated safe. The stacked washer and dryer is tucked away in a closet of our Papakea Resort condo. Our Papakea Resort unit is tiled throughout which gives you that island feel against your feet in the always-cool air-conditioned unit for year-round pleasure.
With the gorgeous ocean beaches and beachfront restaurants only a short walk from your door, you may choose to play miniature golf on one of the two professionally landscaped putting greens, play on one of the two oceanfront shuffleboard courts or take a dip into one of the two gorgeous pools serviced by two full hot tubs and saunas. Walk over to the Molokai Pool tiled to appear as if you are swimming with beautiful fish. Papakea offers swimmercize lessons three mornings a week in addition to yoga lessons. Or you can check out shuffleboard or putting equipment from the Front Desk and play with the ocean waves roaring right beside you. You can barbeque and picnic by the pool while you enjoy the never-ending waves that roll into Papakea's beach.
You are in Phase One of Papakea and there is a mirror image Phase Two a few steps away with further tropical gardens, the Lanai Pool, another 18 hole putting green and oceanfront shuffleboard.
Being able to park immediately behind this Papakea unit is great for convenience, and being able to walk out the sliding glass doors of your ground floor unit will be your route to the pools, the ocean and beautiful beach, and even neighboring restaurants to which you can walk. Because Papakea is on the edge of Kaanapali Beach, you have accessibility to the wonderful pool side dining at neighboring restaurants only a few minutes away. A wonderful benefit of Papakea is that there is no through traffic on the property.
Your Papakea Resort unit blends seclusion and a garden rest with the convenience of being right across the street from a full grocery store, Star Market, a snorkel shop, deli, Italian and Mexican Restaurants, real estate office, coffee shop, therapeutic massage, newspaper and book store, fish market, sub shop, fishing and tackle shop and many more.
You can drive a short way from the Papakea to a choice of championship golf courses; Kapalua or Kaanapali or take a ferry to the island of Lanai for the Challenge of Manele. Or stay at Papakea and play tennis on one of three lighted courts. Your choice of water activities is endless. It is hard work having so much fun, so you may want to relax in one of Papakea's lawn chairs to enjoy the amazing sunset at the water's edge, before exploring one of the many nearby outstanding restaurants for dinner.

The quality of the furniture and attention to detail set this unit apart from many others. Easy access first floor unit with a Koi pond outside next to the patio and less than 100 yards to the beach make this one of our favorite places to stay. Just minutes from all the best features of Maui.

I enjoyed both of my stays very much and will most certainly check first for availability for my next stay. The condo is very clean, comfortable, and in a safe area. The grounds are kept up extremely well, and I love the pond just outside the sliding door. A quick walk past the pool and into the ocean for a warm swim. Awesome!

My husband and I stayed here for a friend's wedding. The unit was perfect for us. Clean...comfortable bed..laundry...kitchenette...nice little lanai. We loved it. It's not huge, but you don't need much space because you spend so much time outside. It was nicely decorated - very new decor. Actually, much more attractive then the rentals many of our friends had. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Maybe on our next trip to Maui. Oh - the ipod player was great, too!
