We had a busy schedule and didn't use the amenities. But a lovely, very clean and updated studio with really enjoyable view of the ocean.
Perfect West Maui home base

My husband and I have stayed at this property twice, and hope to be back! The view and proximity to the ocean is incredible, the pool areas and gardens are great, and the proximity to the supermarket, the ABC store, L&L Hawaiian BBQ, Fish Market Maui etc is incredible - just a few minutes walking to each. We definitely recommend this unit.
Great, clean, affordable place to stay

A guest from Lake Tapps, WA recommends this vacation rental.
Papakea was beautiful and clean place to stay located within walking distance to nearby friends and food. The only misses was that one over the pools/hot tub areas was under repair. And the Surf was very heavy and pounding the seawall making ocean swimming a dangerous option-maybe just the time of year?

Lauren R. from Los Osos, CA recommends this vacation rental.
Overall we had a very good experience. The room was very clean, well decorated, and stocked with everything we needed while we were there. The pictures represent it well. You can walk to Duke's if you walk along the water and we enjoyed going there for dinner or cocktails a couple of times. During the week we stayed they were redoing the hot tub outside our room which was only any inconvenience a couple of times we would have liked to use it and the other one on the property was completely full. The other issue we had was the bed was uncomfortable. When we stayed, there was some kind of a mattress pad that felt (and sounded) like you were rolling on plastic.
One of our best visits to Maui

Trying to find the "perfect" fit as far as a vacation rental can be stressful! We have been to Maui multiple times, ultimately deciding that the Kaanapali area is our favorite to stay. We don't love the huge resorts, and wanted something with easy access to snorkeling and shopping. We really toned it down this trip (we didn't bring the kids with us). I was nervous since I was personally the one that booked Papakea 305. I only hoped that it was just as the pictured showed. From the moment we arrived, we were both pleasantly surprised! It was absolutely perfect for our getaway. The décor was updated with a Hawaiian vibe (but not too much!) Our view was stunning of the ocean. We loved that a bag of coffee was provided for us so that we were prepared to go the next morning. We sat and drank coffee on the Lanai every morning! It was quiet, very well maintained and the bbq access was incredible. We walked the boardwalk most mornings, as well as walked to close by eateries. We truly enjoyed our time at Papakea and can't wait to come back! Oh, and we fully took advantage of the Thursday evening Mai Tai's! I don't even love Mai Tai's, but it was fun meeting so many great people that stay at Papakea. I can't say enough good things about this place. Mahalo!

Cathy K. from Fremont, CA recommends this vacation rental.
We arrived way to early. Our plane landed at 9:30 am so we drove around and did some shopping. We went to check in at 2 pm but the front desk was unable to get a hold of the manager, Tina. So we had to sit in the lobby for awhile. Very hot in Lahaina. When we got our room it was so nice. Turned on the Ir and looked out at the ocean from the lani. I loved the furniture. The sofa bed was uncomfortable for my friend but she managed. Very clean unit. There was no <br/><br/>shampoo or conditioner starters but no biggie. We went out and bought some. We took the ferry at to Lani one day. Had a great time at there. Went on a dinner coffee cruise and a snorkeling adventure to Molokini. My favorite outing. Did some snorkeling on the beach at Papakea Resort-nice. Meet some really new nice people at the pool & spa. It was as a great trip. <br/>
Relaxing in Maui

Susan K. from Zionsville, IN recommends this vacation rental.
The condo was well appointed, clean and spacious. We had a wonderful view from our balcony and enjoyed a leisurely breakfast and coffee there every morning. <br/>The 2 pools were both equipped with 6 nice Weber gas grills and we watched guests enjoying both the shuffle board and putting green. <br/>Although the Papkea property had no actual beach (grassy lawn out to sea wall), the long stretch of beach could be accessed immediately at south end of Papakea property.<br/>Parking was easy and this was a great location from which to explore Maui. <br/>

John M. from Brighton, MI recommends this vacation rental.
The suite was very comfortable and cozy, beautiful furniture and breath taking views. It was perfect for my husband and I. We spent our honeymoon in Maui 37 years ago at the Hyatt down the street it had only been open 3 months. Papakea is a beautiful and very well cared for resort, and a lot quieter than the big resorts. The staff at the Papakea are hard working and follow the rules to a T (that's how it should be everywhere). My son got married (elopement) June 2nd on the beach off Lahaina it was beautiful. I have another son getting married August 2018 I'm trying to talk him into to going to Maui and the Papakea E304 for his honeymoon, he and his fiancée would love it. It was my first time getting a condo instead of a big resort hotel and it was a great experience, I will do it again.
Wonderful Condo - Beautiful Grounds!

A guest from Sacaramento, CA recommends this vacation rental.
This was my 4th time to Maui and the BEST condo accommodations! The unit was perfect for two! Very clean very comfortable with an awesome view! This unit has an air conditioner which made our stay so much better being that the unit is on the 3rd floor and Maui can be a bit humid. It was stocked well and the furniture was very nice! It was like being home away from home! I will definitely rent this condo next time I'm in Maui!

E304 is an absolutely lovely Papakea condo. Fabulous view of the ocean. You hear the sound of the surf all night long. The bed is amazingly comfortable. Step-in shower was very easy for someone with a disability. The provisions and amenities were excellent. The pools also were very accessible for a disability.
A great place for a great price!

We really enjoyed our stay! The condo was in a good location close to everything we needed, and it was very relaxing! The condo was well equipped with everything we needed (beach chairs, towels, beach bag etc). It was also a nice touch that we were greeted with a mini gift basket with our stay. We will definitely be back next year!!

I stayed in this unit for the week leading up to my wedding on Maui. This unit was amazing! It was very clean and updated. It had everything we needed for the week including the full size kitchen, beautiful bathroom and very nice modern wood furniture. The AC was wonderful as it was very hot during my visit. It has a washer/dryer unit, beach bag an towels and all the dishes you could need. It is also beautifully decorated. The view was also amazing as you overlook one of the pools and the ocean. The patio furniture was also nice modern wooden furniture. <br/><br/>I think overall on the property at this time we had 40 people staying in different units as they all came for the wedding and it was the perfect property for that. It is large, near a grocery store and has two pools. It was great because we could all hang out by the pool with our drinks and have a fun time. <br/><br/>We had such a good experience here and would definitely recommend this unit to anyone. We will definitely be back and we will most definitely stay in this unit!

A guest from Portland, OR recommends this vacation rental.
This condo was perfect for my husband and I. Loved the unit and what it came stocked with. Less to have to pack. We did have 2 issues but it was not with the con do itself, rather the security on the property. The pool has some pretty strict and very enforced pool rules. I've seen rules before that were a little laxed but not with this place. No flotation devices whatsoever. No playing games such as marco polo. No jumping into the pool. You also cant be too loud, during the day. That's just a few of the rules. We not only were spoken to but we observed several other guest as well. Pretty disappointing when you can sunbathe while floating in a pool. The "security staff" make several rounds to ensure the pool rules are being obeyed. Even watching from upper balconies to spy on guests. Overall loved the condo, didn't care for the security management of things at the property.

We having been coming to Papakea for the past 5 years. This was by far the nicest and most comfortable unit we have stayed in. The unit is beautifully furnished and quiet. We will definitely stay here again.

Aaron H. from Vernon, BC recommends this vacation rental.
My wife and I stayed at the Papakea in E-304 for 8 nights. We absolutely loved the condo. Very cozy and well appointed with everything a couple needs. The view was amazing, we loved sitting out on our lanai and listening to the ocean. We were very close to the unheated pool, which for the most part was very quiet. It got busier as the resort did maintenance on the heated pool. The amenities of the resort and the condo were perfect. We would definitely stay at the Papakea again.

Angela L. from Poway, CA recommends this vacation rental.
Unit is beautifully upgraded, well furnished, and offers many ameneties you don't normally receive with a traditional vacation rental (plenty of cleaning supplies, extra laundry soap, 2 sets of snorkel gear, 2 beach chairs, a beach bag for use, etc.) The kitchen was well equipped with everything you need to prepare meals. The bottle of wine, chocolates, and gift bag were a nice touch. While the AC was a nice feature, we rarely used it since we were out exploring the island all day and kept the lanai doors open at night in order to be lulled to sleep by the sounds of the ocean. I think the only thing missing was a box of facial tissue which we only needed because one of us was on the tail end of a cold. The resort itself is beautifully maintained with 2 pools (one heated), 2 hot tubs, and several nice gas grills around each pool. The only drawback is that the resort does not have a usuable beachfront (there is a seawall) but there are several accessible beaches within both walking and driving distance. The resort is about a 10-15 minute drive to Lahaina where there is plenty of shopping and great restaurants. Ka'anapali is about 5 minutes away and also has some great options for shopping, dining, and beach activities. <br/><br/>This is the second time we have stayed at the Papakea, but our first visit was booked directly through Aston. This private booking through Aloha Vacation Rentals provided a much nicer/newly updated unit with better amenties. The staff at AVR was very responsive to any concerns that popped up and they were a pleasure to work with. I would not hesitate to book this unit again. It truly is AMAZING!!!
