Papakea Resort condo. Available Dates: This condo is available from November 29 to December 13, 2014. Full rental preferred, but please email for shorter stays.
This listing is a little different from the others. Our condo, F-110, is a very special place. I say that because we’ve been calling it our 2nd home for many years. It has been a playground for one of our daughter’s young family, it’s been a honeymoon oasis for our other daughter, and it has been a retreat for us from the busy life we lead on the mainland. Without a doubt this unit is one of the nicest on the entire Papakea property.
F-110 is a bottom, corner unit (which means it is larger and quieter than most). We completely renovated it in 2009 and spared no expense: granite, tile, furniture, bed, appliances… everything! The décor is tranquil yet boasts all the modern comforts of home.
This 1-bedroom unit can sleep 4 adults comfortably (2 in the bedroom, 2 on the pullout sofa). The new pullout is not the kind of sleeper you remember as a kid- it is extremely comfortable and has the added bonus of being able to hear the waves crashing just outside the door.
The floor-plan is light, bright, and open. It doesn’t hurt that the ocean is visible from almost every room either. The kitchen is large and equipped with everything you could possibly need. The living room has a huge sectional sofa that is great for napping or can accommodate many people comfortably. There are two walls of windows that allow you to see the ocean even when inside. The dining area easily seats 4+. The bedroom boasts a king sized bed and 2nd TV. The bathroom is beautiful with double sinks and a luxurious tiled shower. Having a washer and dryer in the unit allows you to pack lighter and to keep those beach towels dry all day long. And finally, the lanai… oh the lanai! It wraps around the front and side of the condo and provides the most perfect area from which to sip wine, watch the sunset, or to just kick back and soak it all in.
The view doesn’t get better than this! During the day, you have an unobstructed view of the islands of Molokai and Lanai. At night, you have the perfect vantage point for watching magical sunsets. We’ve found that having direct access to the outside (without having to struggle with doors, shoes, or stairs) is priceless. The plush lawn off the lanai is almost like an extension of the condo itself… which is only 20 paces to the ocean (yes, I’ve counted!). Or walk out of the lanai, around the corner and arrive at one of the two pools/hot tubs on the property. And have I told you about the whales yet? Yeah- you will be able to watch them play right from the lanai. Don't forget to bring binoculars!
The Papakea Resort sits on 13 acres of abundant oceanfront property. Despite its size, it feels quite intimate and calm. You will never feel like you are overrun by people and you will always find a chair to lay out on by the pool. It is also one of the only resorts built so close to the ocean too! The grounds are meticulously landscaped with lots of lush grass, tropical flowers, and exotic fish ponds. It also has two large, crystal clear pools (1 heated, 1 not) and 2 oversized hot tubs. There are also mini golf courses, tennis courts, and shuffle boards available on premises.
Papakea is in an ideal location. It is on the beautiful west side of the island in the world famous Kaanapali area. It is a short 12 minute drive south to Lahaina town and approximately 15 minutes north to Kapalua. And most importantly, you are surrounded by beautiful Hawaiian beaches at every turn. There is a grocery store, Farmers Market, convenience store, restaurants, playground and shops just a short 2 to 5 minute walk from the condo.
What can I say, it’s Maui- what isn’t there to do?
World-class snorkeling & scuba diving, swimming, yoga by the beach, sun bathing, surfing, boogie boarding, boating, shelling, sailing, water-skiing, windsurfing, parasailing, jet skiing, whale watching, fishing, championship golfing, mini-golfing, hiking, jungle trekking, zip lining, rock climbing, horseback riding, sightseeing, tennis, biking, basketball, fitness center, wine tasting, shopping, world class restaurants, cultural events, shows, cinemas, museums… and that’s just what I can think of off the top of my head!
Want some budget-friendly ideas of things to do for the entire family so you don’t break than bank? Or a 'hidden' car rental place that will save you bug bucks? Want to know where the best body surfing beach is? Or a beach that is so gentle that it safe for even for the littlest kiddos? Then you are in luck! Since we’ve been going to the island of Maui for many, many years (and visit a few times each year) we know the island very well. If you book with us, I am more than happy to offer suggestions of places to go (and not go), things to do, things you shouldn’t miss, and a whole list of hidden gems that, unless you live on the island fulltime, you’d never know even existed.
