Waterfront Resort Escape with Shared Pool, Hot Tub, Putting Green & Tennis

Spend your days strolling along the sun-kissed beaches and indulging in the long list of amenities when you book your stay at this oceanview Lahaina home. Offering four guests the chance to dive into the island fun with two shared pools, two hot tubs, an 18-hole putting greens, tennis courts, and more, adventure and relaxation will be around every corner.

Nestled in the waterfront destination of the Papakea Resort, you'll be just steps from the water while having easy access to conveniences and attractions. With a full-service grocery store down the street and the heart of Lahaina only five miles south, your stay promises to be hassle-free.

Step out on your balcony and sip your fresh Kona coffee as the waves crash in the distance. Head down to the beach to get a surfing lesson, or maybe do a little body surfing in the waves. Hit the 18-hole putting green to work on your short game, or challenge a friend to a game of tennis on the nearby courts. Grab a drink and hang out by one of the two pools to work on your tan, then enjoy a soaking session in the bubbling hot tub. Back at home, you can connect to the free WiFi to post the pictures of your trip while you surf the cable channels on the couch. Whip up a dish in the convenient kitchen, then dine out on the balcony to enjoy the sea breeze rolling in. Don't forget to start a load of laundry in the washer/dryer!

Treat yourself to a vacation filled with relaxation, sun-soaked adventure, and the beauty of the islands when you book your trip to this Hawaiian escape.

The Papakea Resort is a great location. Walking location to some Kaanapali beaches, close to black cliff rock, and great for a quick grocery walk at ABC store. Also close to some popular restaurants like Maui Fish Market.

Down sides, I thought there was going to be a full tub, but it's definitely a standing shower. The first night we checked in we rinsed our feet and noticed the tub wasn't draining, but at 7:30pm it was just a security guy working the front desk that didn't quite understand what we were saying. I emailed vacasa and they were quick to respond the following day. We were out on the road to Hana, so we gave them permission to enter the room without us there to fix it. Another downside and probably why the drain was clogged, the first time we used the laundry machine my clothes came out with so much sand (we hadn't come near a beach yet), so I'm sure it's leftover from the previous renters. Also note, with the bamboo curtains, it's not really private from downstairs we could totally see inside with the lights on through the slits of the curtains.

The location is great and with covid we did a lot of take out meals and ate them on the balcony for a great view. The resort was decorated for the holidays which was cute as well. The room does provide internet and cable and we bought our own detergent for the laundry and coffee and creamer for the coffee maker.

It's good for two people (i know you can opt for 4) but the surf board dining table is really just good for two people. $17/day resort fee for parking, but we were able to park right in front of our room.

We didn't get a chance to utilize the tennis court, putting green, or shuffleboard but there were two large pools and hot tubs. I do believe there are a lot of kids on the resort, the balcony/bed is right next tot he pond and putting green so we woke up every morning to screaming children but that couldn't be helped. Also on one of the nights we couldn't tell if it was the people next door or upstairs but they were hammering or knocking for hours (also not the fault of Vacasa) but it makes me think the walls are thin.

Per reviews, looks like the house used to provide a lot more boogie boards and snorkels, but we had two towels and one boogie board. Thankful for the laundry machines we washed the towels daily.
Manager response:

Clean unit, nicely decorated, and comfortable with a great view.

We LOVED our stay at Papakea. Parking was an additional amount per day that you pay when you arrive, but it was worth it to have close by parking always available. We didn't use many of the amenities besides the pool, but it looked like there was a lot of stuff to do around the complex. The views from the lanai were stunning and there is a nice little patio table and chairs for meals outside. The complex was pretty quiet even though it seemed to be full of people. Everyone was very respectful around us. AC is loud, but works beautifully for those hot days/nights. Kitchen is perfectly stocked with all the pans/essentials (except they were out of coffee filters for our visit...but we bought a big pack for the next round of guests!). The shower was a little underwhelming and pretty small, but it definitely wasn't an issue.

The beach right in front is not really accessible as it's just a sea wall, but you can walk to nearby beaches. It was so nice to lounge right next to the sea wall and be by the ocean!

Vacasa makes it easy to communicate via text and they are pretty prompt with their response too. Easy check in / check out. We can't wait to come back and stay.

Expensive for what you get.
Advertised at $286/night but with resort fees, booking fees, cleaning fees, taxes, ended up at $450/night.
The beach chairs were rusted and broken, umbrella small and cheap, no dish soap, one bar of shower soap, old/outdated shower, sloppy interior paint job.
I would give this 5 stars at $200/night.

Can’t wait to retire here in about 40 years!
Eric L. Apr 2021
My wife and I loved this place. So many things within walking distance and other popular spots just a very close drive away (Black Rock beach 5 min, and Lahaina 10 minutes). The grounds were kept up nice and the place was very clean with all you need to utensils needed to make you own meals if you'd like.

We will be back!

This VRBO exceeded expectations. The room was spotless and very roomy. The lani had gorgeous views. Beautiful grounds it doesn’t get better than this! The staff at the resort were very helpful. Easy parking. Great location. Would definitely stay again. Thank you!

The place has everything you need to have a comfortable stay.

This is the beat vacation I have ever had by far. The Vacasa team was great, Leticia the manager was very accommodating and kind. The room was completely spotless and the amenities well exceeding my expectations. A+++ . Anyone who says less is nonsense!

The view, the grounds, the sunsets
Morgan J. Feb 2020
Such a lovely little place. The Papakea is a little gem with everything you need for your vacation. We enjoyed our time and will hopefully be back one day!
Lora V. Feb 2020
Here are the pros- the views are great and it is quiet. You can also walk without too much effort to a nice beach, although it would be a lot to take your gear, but it's easy to get to. If you enjoy staying somewhere with a pool and grills, this property has nice facilities for this. Parking is easy.

The apartment I would say was ok. I appreciated having a washer and dryer. We generally didn't cook elaborate meals, but the kitchen had what we needed. The bed was hard and the couch is really uncomfortable. It is hard to hear the tv over the AC- but you probably aren't here to watch tv anyway.

there is a cooler in the closet, but no snorkel equipment. There are a lot of beach toys for kids. The umbrella isn't usable and the beach chairs are pretty bulky (although they do have a shade type thing over top). We rented from Auntie next to ABC. $30 for an umbrella and 2 chairs for a week. There are only 2 beach towels, so plan to wash these often or get extras. You don't get towel privileges at the resort. there is only one small bar of soap for shower and sink, so plan to get or bring a second soap. The patio furniture was really grimy. They've done a nice job with the photos, and parts of it are cute, but much of it feels run down.

This property was exactly as listed and then some! We would stay here again in a heartbeat and recommend to all. The grounds were perfectly maintained and the unit itself was quiet and everything was in perfect working order. The location is great - walking distance for some, and a short drive to other attractions.
Lisa S. Dec 2019
The condo was light and bright and decorated appropriately for the area. Very Hawaiian! The mattress on the pull out couch was surprisingly very comfortable. The condo itself is very near to restaurants and grocery stores, that gives it an extra appeal. The pool was very clean and the grounds were kept up very nicely. The hot pool was very large and very warm and inviting. The room is located a ways off of the beach but you still have a beautiful view and I liked that it was by the water fountain that goes 24/7 so at night you have that relaxing sound that goes throughout the night if you keep the window open. There are boogie boards and snorkel masks that we used while we were there. I would recommend this place to my friends and family. Mahalo for a pleasant stay with my son!
Nina C. Oct 2019
This condo is simple and sweet. It is best for 2 adults. It has everything you need. They even have boogie boards and snorkels. The washer and dryer and AC are great additions. We cooked breakfast in the kitchen each day and ate on the porch looking out to the ocean, pool, and beautifully landscaped grounds. Will definitely stay here again!
Meghan G. Oct 2019
The resort was beautiful and well organized. Staff were very kind and helpful. The room was very clean and we had everything we needed (very responsive to bringing laundry detergent when it was missing).
The bed and pillows were not the comfiest but overall it was a great stay and we would stay there again!
Michael M. Apr 2019
Lovely gardens and grounds. great studio type condo with every thing you would need for a wonderful stay on Maui. We stay here often when traveling the island and never disappointed. Friendly staff and everything you need is within five minutes walking distance.
Tammy G. Apr 2019
Great condo for the week for the 2 of us. Had everything we needed while in Maui. Highly recommend the resort and condo itself when 2 of you want to get away.

thank you Papakea!!!

Clean and beautiful setting.
David L. Sep 2018
This was a perfect room for my wife and I. It fit our needs well and it was a nice place to come back to every evening.
DAMODAR S. Jun 2018
We stayed here for 3 nights, everything posted in the add was real. We had a real good time while we stayed in this resort which is well connected to beaches, shopping and other part of the island.
Mark R. May 2018
Thank you Vacasa for providing such a clean room. The room was full of unexpected amenities such as extra toilet papers, bath and beach towels, detergents. It had everything we could possibly can think of.
Elizabeth F. Apr 2018
The grounds and staff at Papakea were fantastic. But overall room I would not stay in again.
Toni G. Mar 2018
Nicer than pic, great location
Lisa A. Feb 2018
Perfect location and wonderful resort. We would definitely stay here again!
Christie C. Dec 2017
What a cute remodeled unit at Papakea. The location can't be beat. This resort is close to everything and C204 has an incredible view off of the lanai. This studio is so much more spacious than others I have stayed in. I loved the decor and I will be back! Thank you to the Vacasa Hawaii staff for their care and attention to detail. I will definitely stay with you on my next vacation.
