Good location, just a few miles from Lahaina, and across the road from a strip shopping center. A/C was out while we were there, but we expected this, since a management rep contacted us beforehand, and offered either a discount or alternate condos. We took the discount. Wouldn't recommend using the beach at this resort, but nicer beaches are close by. Resort has lots of barbecue pits, a couple of nice pools, nice koi ponds, putting greens and tennis courts. Unit has very shallow stairs on staircase to loft, and very little privacy in loft. Recommend keeping that in mind when planning accommodations.
This unit is as beautiful as shown but there are a few things you need to know to decide if this unit is appropriate for your group. Whomever did the renovation went for style over function. This unit would be best rented in the cooler months for people whose privacy is not an issue. The bathrooms,in the loft bedroom and the MBR, are completely open and are part of the room. There are no doors or walls. If someone is using the bathroom upstairs loft everyone in the kitchen and living room can hear it. The drape to the large west facing window MBR needed to be closed most of the time either because of the sun or for privacy using the bathroom. The unit is for 6 people but there are no seats anywhere for 6 to sit down and have a meal together. The lanai is not even big enough for the provided table and 4 chairs; It has room for 3 if the sliding doors are closed. Inside there are 4 chairs at the kitchen counter. The A/C is a single high end wall mount unit above the sliding doors in the living room. In order for all the bedrooms to be cooled down the doors to the bedrooms needed to be opened. Of course, it was broken when we got there so we can't tell if the unit would have cooled the entire condo or not. The management company of C404, Chase 'N Rainbows was very apologetic and refunded a portion of our rent because they couldn't find any 3brs with a/c to move us. Although it looks like someone already tried to repair the unit before we came in. Part of the A/C cover was already taken down and left on the lanai. It was uncomfortable to sleep especially the first night of our vacation. We slept in the living room with all doors to the condo open. The stone floor in the MBR was radiating so much heat that we thought there were a malfunction to the hot water pipe from the unit below! Papakea resort is still under renovation so by 8am the noise is quite loud; no quiet morning coffee on the lanai. It is fine if you are using the unit as a base for touring and don't have late sleepers in your group .The snorkeling in front of the resort is surprisingly good when the sea is calm. The ground is clean and the hot tub is great. Less than 10 min walk to the new Duke restaurant, better than the one in Honolulu. There are a couple of interesting eateries right behind the resort. The checkin process was easy.
the construction while at the pool was annoying, the cabana in the evening was really nice to use so our families could all get together. It was fairly quiet because of the construction. Loved that the owners made available coolers umbrellas and snorkel gear. our unit was newly renovated much nicer than my relatives
This condo is amazing! Has everything you need and more! The view is spectacular! Very clean and modern. Loved it!
“Wonderful Experience to Celebrate Our 35th anniversary”
I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful our unit was. It was immaculate, up to date, everything we saw and read, and even looking at the picture now, as I write this, makes me sad that we are not able to be right back there enjoying the place again. There was not anything that we didn't have at the unit. From games to kitchen items, it was fully stocked with the necessities needed to make a gourmet dinner to fast snacks. The beds were comfortable, and with the windows open to allow the wonderful breezes through, it was glorious to hear the water. The community is wonderful, and well kept. Quiet is requested at 10:00 p.m. each evening, which actually we found o.k. since we were exhausted with all the attractions from the day anyway. There were three adult couples that shared this unit. Each couple had their own bathroom and bedroom which made for a truly convenient place. Being together as a family to enjoy each other's company was extremely wonderful. We loved having breakfast on the balcony overlooking the beautiful view of the facility down to the Ocean. Wow is all we could say when we first got in. Papakea was a wonderful resort, the folks were helpful, and we really didn't spend enough time there.
This unit is amazing!!! Everything was perfect. Everything from how clean and well equipped was excellent. The view from the balcony was wonderful. My family and I had a wonderful time and will book this unit again in the future.
“The Perfect Vacation for Us”
Having already stayed at Papakea Resort previously, we knew that we would again experience a terrific stay in Maui. Since this unit had been remodeled, it made our stay even better than the last. The kitchen was well stocked with quality appliances that made food preparation a breeze! We loved all of the upgrades that made this unit stand out. We have decided that time spent in Maui is best spent enjoying our family while actually resting on our vacation. The grounds at Papakea are beautifully manicured and make for a beautiful setting. While there is not a large beach, the ocean views are breathtaking and the immediate waters are filled with many varieties of fish. While many prefer to tour the island while there, we appreciate being able to relax and take in the immediate beauty surrounding the resort. For us, Papakea Resort and the surrounding area of Maui make our time perfect.
“spacious, relaxing accomedations”
We very much enjoyed our stay with 1 major exception and a few minor ones. When we arrived at aprox. 1pm our 1st day the condo was unberably hot! It took 24 hours to cool it down to a reasonable temp. making our first night very uncomfortable. It is rediculous to have the air and all the fans turned off when you know guests are arriving regardless of the cost for electricity. It probably cost more to get it back to a reasonable temp after that. Other than that, the beds were very hard and the pillows in the loft bedroom were way too flat to be comfortable. Besides these things we made do and thought the condo was lovely, spacious and clean with everything we needed. We would return to Papakea. The resort was great! One last suggestion, if the beds had perhaps a 2-4 inch memory foam topper they would have been perfect to sleep on and having a variety of pillow densitys to choose from would have made the stay almost perfect.
“Beautiful Condo with awesome views!”
We were really happy with our recent rental, Papakea C404. We especially liked the fact that our property had ammenities that we were expecting to have to rent, like, beach chairs, umbrella, sand mats, etc. The property was well kept and the staff was very friendly. Even though this was a private rental, we still were received very well by the office staff.
