Check-in was easy and instructions for the stay was informative
Property has all the amenities we needed - plenty of beach towels, bath towels, shampoos, hairdryer, kitchenware, dish/ laundry detergents, etc.
Rooms were nice - lamps, plugs, and hangers in the right places
Great ocean from our window, which was really nice seeing that first thing when you wake up!

The view from the condo was amazing with views of the ocean and pool. We loved that it was welcoming with many extras amenities like snorkeling equipment, beach chairs and umbrella, golf putters, etc... Would rent again!

Stayed in a 2 bed 2 bath condo that was perfect for 2 couples. Had a great time exploring nearby beaches and enjoying the property. The AC unit is a window unit that does not adequately cool down the whole unit, especially the front bedroom that had open windows with slats so it is like a sleeping porch feeling. That bedroom was too hot during our whole stay, even with that ceiling fans and fans used in the unit. It is definitely cooler than outside in the rest of the condo, but doesn’t get cooled down enough. The condo was adequately equipped with kitchen items as well as beach tommy bahama chairs and some snorkel gear. Would stay here again if it was cheaper or if they updated the AC.

My family enjoyed the stay at B407. We had an amazing view of the sunset, ocean and the pool. The high ceiling gave lots of room to the space even for a family of 5 (all adults). You can't avoid having tiny little bugs - you either have some or so much. The unit didn't have excessive amount of those bugs but my mom still got some bites while we were there for 4 nights. There was a little mistake made by Vacasa towards the end of our stay. They submitted a wrong paperwork to Papakea Resorts that we'd be staying 3 nights instead of 4. So on the day before our checkout, we were locked out of the unit after coming back from the beach. So I had to show up at the reception in my swimsuit, still wet, to sort this thing right. Thankfully they hadn't clean the room yet so nothing got missing. But it was a pretty poor incident. Other than that, we have no complaints. We would actually come back to this unit if we plan another vacation in Maui.

Papakea Resort is above Kaanapali near resort row. DT Fleming Beach is to the North and Kaanapali Beach is to the South. Resort / Hotel is very easy to find off the main Highway 30.
When checking into the resort, park in front and go to the main lobby hostess area and check in to your room first. Leave your luggage in the car. After getting your room keys then park in front of your building so you don’t have to lug your luggage around finding your room. The resort has 7 buildings and each one is number after a letter A-G.
The good:
There are 2 pools with BBQ propane grills set around pool area with tables. Recommend to maybe hang out and eat dinner by pool area at night... no shade area at pools :(
The room we booked had an upstairs bedroom and bathroom and a downstairs bedroom and bathroom. The room was awesome and spacious for a family of 2 adults and 2 children. Recommed using the upstairs bedroom area, it’s a lot cooler on top, then the downstairs bedroom. There is a small window ac unit and fan in the living area that circulates air well into upstairs area. Downstairs was really stuffy and I had a hard time sleeping. There was a ceiling fan in our room but it just circulates warm humid air. Next time if we stay there, definitely going to have the kids stay downstairs and me and wifey will be upstairs :)
The room itself had everything you need for hanging out. It felt more like a condo/ home instead of a hotel room. Bedrooms and bathrooms were very clean and had a Spartan/ spacious feel. There is even a laundry unit with washer and dryer inside closet area, detergent was also included. The room had all the essentials for a day out, beach towels were included with bogey board. And bathrooms were all appointed with soap, body wash, hand soap, shampoo, hairdryer and extra towels.
Pro-Tip, this room B407 has all the essentials for home cooked meals, such as plates, bowls, silverware, utensils, fridge and paper towels. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need, even down to dishwasher, Ajax Soap and scrubber. If staying longer than 4 days, go get groceries first before checking into hotel. Right next to the Airport is Costco or Target. Go there first before driving 30 miles to resort. Costco or Target will be the cheapest, or go to Safeway in Lahaina and get a membership card. Food is very expensive in Hawaii in general about 50% more than the mainland, so even if you just cook one meal in instead of eating out you’ll save money. We ended up eating breakfast in our room and ate out for lunch and dinner. Average was about $100 per meal for family of 4.
A very nice touch when checking into the room was a box of chocolate and bag of coffee on the counter. That was a nice surprise.
The Bad:
After buying food at Safeway we left our Hawaiian rolls and pita bread and bananas on the counter. Be forewarned, there are tiny bugs that were on the counter top and along the walls in the kitchen. Totally gross and disgusting. They were on the bananas and inside the bread and pita. We had to throw that stuff away. No matter how many times we cleaned the counter and walls with Ajax Soap before and after we ate breakfast, the next we’ll see the bugs again. Luckily they are only in the kitchen area. After seeing those bugs, we made sure we washed the dishes before we ate and after we ate, definitely didn’t want any bugs on our silverware crawling around at night.

This place was recommended by 2 coworkers that used VRBO and stayed here before.... they stayed in a “G” room building. We only stayed for 4 days, but had an awesome time in Maui. I would give this place 5 STARS because we had such a great time in Maui. This was the last getaway for the kids before they started school in 2 days.
However, due to the bugs I would give it only 3 STARS, talk about Roach Motel!! Me and wifey killed over 100 little bugs on the napkins.
Overall, had to deduct 1 star because of the bugs, so 4 STARS overall.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Hieu. We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit and were able to take advantage of the home’s awesome location and access to amenities! We apologize for any inconvenience you encountered during your stay due to the presence of bugs. The home does receive regular preventative pest control treatments though insects are a common aspect of island life. We are glad this did not impact your overall enjoyment of the home and we look forward to hosting you again in the future!

This condo is affordable, clean, updated, and has the best view on the island! The location is perfect. It's close to shopping, beautiful beaches, and fine dining. The condo is spacious enough for a family of 5 without issues. The AC unit worked extremely well, and kept the entire condo cool, even the upstairs. In the evening the back sliding doors provided a wonderful ocean breez, with a one of a kind view. The condo maintains easy access to BBQ's that were located poolside no more than 20 yards away. Upon arrival, the condo unit was extremely clean. Both the washer and dryer appeared to be newer appliances, and worked wonderfully. It also had elevator access, which was great for our elderly family members. It was extremely affordable based on the amount of space provided. The full kitchen allowed us to save money by utilizing the appliances and cooking our meals. The affordability, location, view, and dining, makes this condo a must stay! I plan on going back every year to this rental! 🤙🤙🤙

Room was perfect for the five of us. The view was amazing. I will definitely come back!!
Joel J. Jul 2019
This place had spectacular views, extremely clean condo with polished staff to assist in check in and any other needs. This was a planned vacation of a life time for my husband and our four children and our stay in the condo was perfect for that! Perfect for families the condo was equipped with washer/dryer, fresh clean regular towels as well as beach towel, beach chairs, umbrella and boogie boards! The grounds are clean, pools are clear, activities (life size shuffle board) are creative and the views were epic! Perfect lounging area right on the ocean to view the sunset while enjoying some wine with the hubby. We recommend the island and the condo managed by Vacasa we give a five star rating!
Tamara M. Jun 2019
Location and amenities were fantastic
Elizabeth G. Apr 2019
Loved the location - great grocery stores nearby, right on the ocean, easy walk to the best beach on the island. Loved the condo- cozy but roomy enough for a family of four, great view of the pool and the ocean, well kept.
Bryan M. Apr 2019
Our view from the room was breathtaking. We saw Whales every day while sipping coffee.
Emily L. Mar 2019
We had a wonderful family vacation at Papakea B407. The condo was very well suited for our family of 4. The condo was well appointed with plenty of everything for all of us. The kitchen was very well stocked with utensils and small appliances, which made for some nice family meals on the lanai. Sunset from the lanai was stunning.
Kristine T. Jan 2019
This is our third time staying at Papakea and my in-laws 13th time staying at Papakea so we've seen a number of units. There were 6 of us total (four adults, a baby, and a toddler). We had the grandparents on the ground level and my husband and I in the loft with the baby and my 2.5 year old son was able to sleep in the upstairs bathroom in his travel crib. Overall this was a great unit.
PROS:
-The upstairs bathroom was big enough for a travel crib which is a huge pro when travelling with toddlers. I find when he is in the same room as us he wakes up earlier so having the separation was key.
-The upstairs loft would be big enough to have another travel crib at the end of our bed.
-The unit supplies beach towels, two beach chairs, one beach umbrella, golf clubs, and sand toys. Thank you!
-The downstairs bathroom has a mini tub which was great for the kids (it didn't supply a plug but we made due)
-Kitchen is well supplied.
-There is an emergency kit in the downstairs bathroom which is a great plus when travelling with kids.
-Patio overlooked the water and had great views of whales in January (bring your binoculars).
-Beds were comfortable and towels were fluffy.
-The TV is a smart TV which is great for watching youtube, netflix etc in the evening.
-Shower pressure is good.

CONS:
-The condo needs a good bug spray down. For those new to Maui it is very common to see very very small bugs in almost all units no matter where you stay. They are harmless but super annoying. We were very clean and kept food in cupboards and the fridge but for a third floor unit there were significantly more of these little critters than we saw in our first floor unit which makes me believe this condo needs a spray update. Again, these little bugs are normal to see but annoying and seeing less of them would make our trip more enjoyable.
-The carpet going up the stairs and in the bedroom needs a good shampoo or replacement given the price per night.

A quick note about the air conditioner... given our experience at Papakea we were worried about this but it isn't an issue at all. We hardly used the air conditioner... turned it on a few times but if you leave the front door slightly open and the patio doors open you get a lot of breeze thru the unit. We used our ceiling fans and the additional fan they had upstairs when needed but it wasn't as big of an issue as we expected. This is surprising given that the sun sets toward this unit.

Lastly, we had to communicate with vacasa during our trip and we were pleasantly surprised at how quick they were to reply to our emails. Thanks for your great customer service.

Overall a great stay in B407. Would definitely stay here again!
Manager response:
Hi Kristine, we are so pleased that your family enjoyed the condo and all of the amenities that made your stay more comfortable. I completely agree with you that, when on vacation with little kids, we understand the importance of creating an efficient and inviting atmosphere. We appreciate your letting us know about the bug concern. We do have an existing program that includes a regular and consistent schedule with spraying for bugs. Thank you.

Sitting on balcony each morning viewing the ocean was spectacular. Condo was perfect for our family of four!
Aaron R. Dec 2018
Very spacious room!
Sue R. Sep 2018
Loved everything but the air conditioner. It sucked and it was really hard to sleep at night.
Elizabeth B. Sep 2018
It was a great unit for kids, had a bathtub and sand toys, chairs etc. great location. My kids enjoyed the on site activities.
Lucy S. Jun 2018
A great place to spend a holiday. The condo had everything we needed and we especially appreciated all the beach toys and snorkeling equipment. Beautiful view and great location.
Brett B. May 2018
Awesome location great clean unit with plenty of space for 4 and a baby
Stew & Cathy R. May 2018
Nice vacation. Rental had great appliances in kitchen and more of very thing in kitchen to cook and eat with. They have a Roku TV is more of an internet based way to get tv was a challenge we figure out how to watch a couple of movies. Amazing shower in master bathroom. We used the beach umbrella and chairs. Nice to have grocery, stores and restaurants within walking distant to condo. Pizza Paradiso "great" try the Big Fat Gyro.
Julia L. Apr 2018
The concierge is so helpful. I highly recommend going to the intro presentation and getting their help in booking. Our condo kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. We enjoyed the quiet relaxed atmosphere of Papakea.
Betty d. Apr 2018
Loved the clean pools and plentiful grills around each pool.
Having 2 full baths was great too. Our kids were too old to appreciated the toys in the master bedroom closet-we left 2 boogie boards-would have been nice to have had beach chairs and really the only downside was we only had 3 beach towels and there were three of us. Nice touch to leave coffee, filters and a box of chocolates to greet us. Very nice home, we viewed whales from our lanai every morning. I thought that I would miss having a beach access and was very surprised how much I loved lawn chairs on the grass-no sand in the toes!
Von L. Apr 2018
Great condo and facilities. Not a good beach for swimming but has fantastic views.
Sundaram S. Dec 2017
Good stay. Swimming pool and lawn were very well maintained.
Traffic was terrible. So we stayed or roam nearby.
No direct beach access. You have to walk a lot or better drive to kahekili beach
We watched couple of whale from the resort beach lawn during December.
Overall had nice experience
Shelby C. Dec 2017
Great place to stay.. are family loved it.. very clean and has everything you could ever need.. pack light if you stay here..
Kathryn S. Nov 2017
Good location. Close to the shopping and restaurants without being in the really busy part of Kaanapali. Had wished the pool on our side of the property had been heated. Also, the hot tub was out of order and was due to be fixed in a couple weeks. Overall was a good property.
Kelly J. Nov 2017
It had a perfect view, and very close to the ocean which was nice. Very quiet and peaceful. It got hot inside and had to use the air conditioner. The back bedroom gets very hot. But when the wind blows you open the windows and then open the patio doors and just leave the screens shut, the breeze just blows through and cools everything down. We didn't start seeing bugs until we were there for a week. They need to spray better.
Manager response:
We are very glad the guest enjoyed the home with it's scenic view and close proximity to the beach. Our apologies that they found bugs. We take great pride in taking the necessary steps to insure they don't intrude on our guest's space. The rooms were professionally sprayed after they checkout out. Thank you.
Marcie Q. Nov 2017
We spent a week at Papakea and had a FABULOUS time! The unit B407 was just as the pictures showed which was clean, organized, fully stocked, great view and comfortable. We really enjoyed all the amenities of the resort and would highly recommend this place. We'll definitely be back!
Ray S. Oct 2017
