Papakea k-401 stunning premium ocean view t… – vrbo gas in back relief


ALOHA! Stunning views abound from this spacious and open corner loft unit, at the Papakea Resort. Located less than 50 yards from the ocean, makes this beautifully decorated and remodeled unit almost ocean front. Save and rent directly from owner for quality that you can count on when you arrive.

The Papakea Resort is a tropical oasis on 13 acres of manicured grounds, with a thoroughly Hawaiian atmosphere. It has the largest amount of land of any condominium resort on Maui’s spectacular Kaanapali beach, the only resort with two ocean front pools, two spas and two large 12 hole putting greens. Grounds also include three lighted tennis courts, two shuffleboard courts, two beach cabanas, tranquil koi ponds, lush gardens and 12 outdoor barbecues.

Papakea is conveniently located between the Kaanapali and Kapalua world class golf resorts, just minutes away from shops, restaurants and galleries in nearby Lahaina and Whaler’s Village. Walk to the grocery store, delis and other services on the other side of Papakea and right across the street. Other restaurants are within walking distance just down the beach.

K-401 is the top fourth floor corner unit closest to the ocean. The K building is very desirable because it shelters the lanai and living room from the afternoon sun and is in a quiet dead end parking lot. An elevator is just a few doors away. Free parking is right outside the building.

The entire first floor and lanai, has the cool feel of clean tiles, placed in an elegant diagonal pattern. Storage is abundant throughout, with extra closets and dressers. The owners continue to upgrade and maintain the unit EVERY year to sustain the quality guest experience. The latest major improvement is a Fujitsu tri-zone air conditioning system that provides three independently controlled air handlers in the living room/kitchen, loft and master bedroom for unparalleled comfort.

Soaring wood cathedral ceilings rise up to the loft, that makes this unit feel like a home rather than just a hotel room. Picketed railings allow light and air to flow through but children under 5 are not recommended, due to dangers inherent in the loft.

The K building was also finished in the almost $1 million dollar per building Papakea exterior renovation project in the summer of 2012. The project reversed almost 40 years of ocean front wear by repairing the concrete spalling damage, replacing all of the building railings, coating the lanais and walkways with a high tech engineered surface and painting the exterior. Papakea has never looked better!

PapakeaK401 is a wonderful condo! The pictures are true to what you will walk in to, and what you see on the grounds. Having the separation of one bedroom and bathroom in the loft, and one bedroom and bathroom on the main floor was really nice for traveling with two couples. Everyone felt like they had their own space for getting ready, which was great. The view from the lanai is wonderful, and having a table for 4 was great for meals outside. We were also able to do quite a bit of whale watching from the lanai—whales everywhere this trip!! Loved the ‘feel’ at Papakea too—very laid back, not too crowded, and all of the staff around the grounds were very nice. Walks along the sea wall became a favorite thing for us as you can look down and see reef triggerfish, cornet fish, moorish idols, and other fish swimming right there. We were also lucky enough to see the turtles swim right in to feed on the reef there—it was an amazing sight!! Mike and Cindy were truly a joy to work with, they made everything so easy, and were great about answering any questions that we had. We would definitely stay here again, and would recommend to anyone!
