Stunning Unit in Paradise!!!

What an incredible week! We go to the Papakea each year and have stayed at many units. This was our 5th trip. F307 is our new favorite. The views are obstructed and you can see both the islands of Lanai and Molokai. We watched the sunset from our lanai most evenings. It is oceanfront at its best! Some of the amenities that stand out: The bed is very comfortable. We liked being able to have full use of the living room during the day. The kitchen is absolutely fabulous and very well stocked. The bathroom is also stunning! We were provided enough towels for our entire stay. The towels and linens are white and just as nice as you would find in a hotel. The condo was also very clean. The flat screen was also nice. The lanai furniture was very comfortable.

The grounds at the Papakea are unlike anything you will find on Maui. This is a very large property and the gardens with the tropical plants are impeccable. I really enjoyed the water aerobics classes offered at the resort. Papakea's close proximity to the shopping center across the street makes shopping for food, quick meals and take out make it a perfect place. Duke's restaurant is within walking distance and we enjoyed our dinner there a few times.

Julie was extremely helpful and such a great person to work with. We miss the ocean waves crashing and looking forward to our return next year.

Great unit and super great host. Thank you for helping us make our family memories.

We booked 5 units at the Papakea for a family reunion. We have never been to the Papakea before but chose this resort based on pictures we had seen by doing a lot of research and reading reviews. We couldn’t have been happier with this unit and the resort. First, booking the unit with Julie was super easy. We quickly received a quote. We had a few questions and Julie responded quickly and even offered to have a discussion on the phone if we had further questions. Once we decided to book the unit, the process was very simple. We received a lot of information including how to check into the unit.

The best part however was actually stepping onto the property and then into the unit. There is a warm tropical feeling as soon as you step onto the property. The front desk at the Papakea is friendly and let us know that there is a Mai Tai party every week. We got our electronic keys and went into the condo. This was a “oh my gosh” moment. My husband and I were so excited that we were so close to the ocean…..all we saw was the blue pacific. Once we took our eyes of the ocean we noted that the unit was very clean. There were plenty of towels and beach towels. The condo is remodeled and the granite countertop is so unique. There was plenty of space in the closet for our luggage.

Since we had a big family gathering, we did a lot of BBQing. The BBQs are located by the pool and there was a nice warm breeze in the evenings. The condo had everything we need to cook.

The condo is on the 3rd floor which was perfect as we would people watch and even saw turtles and dolphins from the lanai. There is an elevator in the building, although to get some exercise we took the stairs many times. There are two pools to choose from and because the F building is in the middle, we could get to either pool quickly. The resort is like a tropical zen and we would just stroll around the property. I’m a avid photographer so I ended up taking a lot of pictures of the plants at the Papakea resort.

Julie’s list of recommendations came in handy and we tried a few things that were on her list and we were so happy to get some inside scoops.

Julie helped us make wonderful family memories and for that we are so appreciative. Thanks Julie! We will be recommending your condo to all our friends and family. BTW - next time we will book well in advance so my parents can also stay in your one bedroom and we will be really close to them.
