Our family stayed at this amazing home 3/11/14-3/18/14 and loved every moment of it. We felt so relaxed and loved the views from this home so much that we really had to remind ourselves to go out and explore the rest of the island. Jan was wonderful and told me that I would feel like a princess while staying there and boy was she NOT kidding. Everything about this home was so much more than we expected. It was private and away from the tourist scene but yet a very short drive into Lahaina when we wanted to shop and dine. The kitchen was absolutely great and we found that it was completely enjoyable just to stay there and cook for ourselves then sit on the lanai and be amazed by the sunsets while we ate. We will absolutely be back and will be counting down the days until we do. This was one of the most amazing vacations that I've ever had.

My family of 4 stayed with another family of 4 at the Makila Plantation Home. The house is beautiful. The pictures do not do it justice. Jan, the owner, was prompt with her replies and took care of every little detail. We have been to Maui three times and we found the location of this home to be ideal for taking advantage of all that the island has to offer. The house was perfect for our families and ideally located for our forays to the beaches west and south and to the Upcountry. The rooms are spacious and clean and cool and the location is extremely safe. We visited the aquarium, did a whale watching tour, took many hikes including the Lahaina/Pali hike, visited the Lahaina animal farm and had dinner all over the island. The hot tub, outdoor showers and laundry room were nice additions. We even used the ice cream maker. When I say that Jan covered every base it is no exaggeration. We had a wonderful experience.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in what we like to call our little piece of heaven on Maui. LR 311 was our home away from home and at the end of each day when we returned after many wonderful adventures exploring the Island our condo was a welcome and wonderful retreat. The view was absolutely amazing and we had many sunset dinners on the Lanai. Jan was always there letting us know if there was anything we needed all we had to was call. The condo is so clean and comfy and has everything one needs and more. It was perfection. We are going back next year. Can't wait. Thanks so much Jan it was our sincere pleasure to deal with you on renting this wonderful spot

We had a great time at Lahaina Roads. 308 has everything you could hope for in a vacation home. We saw whales from day one and turtles every day of our stay. The grounds were well maintained. The condo was clean and the layout perfect. Recommendation: rent a car, as the property is, in my view, just out of comfortable walking range to downtown Lahaina. Safeway and Longs Drug are in easy walking range. This condo has air conditioning in both the living room and bedroom; this is a feature not found in all Lahaina Roads units.

What a great place! It was perfect for our 10 night stay. The kitchen is well equiped. The Queen bed is very comfortable and super easy to put up and down. It was nice to be able to walk to a couple of restaurants and some shopping too. The resort was very nice as well. One pool is heated the other is not, glad we overheard this on our second day or we would not have known. We hope to come back some day.....

Words can not express how beautiful this condo is. It is very clear that lots of love has gone into this amazing home. I can't express enough how lucky we were to find this condo right on the beach! Every morning we had breakfast on the lanai as well as most of our dinners watching the sunset. Right on famous Front Street yet feels very private and secluded. Lovely flower, plants,and tiki torches on the grounds; as well as club house with shelves of books to borrow. Within walking distance to resturants, shopping, and cocktails. Covered parking and relaxing pool that was cleaned daily. Truly a dream come true place to stay!! When we return to Maui, this is where we will stay!! Thank you so very much.... Aloha Love

My husband and I stayed in lahaina roads 311 from dec 3-11. Definitely wasn't long enough. Loved Hawaii. It was our first time there, and I think we were lucky to find such a great condo in such a great location. Plus the view was fabulous! We watched the sea turtles from our lanai, enjoyed the close snorkeling beaches, and spending time walking through the shops right down the road in Lahaina. When we return, we will definitely remember this condo, and will definitely return.

Perfection. Beautiful. Exactly what you expect...and amazing for the price! We LOVED it. Close to downtown...but quiet and away. Lovely pool, lanai, and living room...which we slept in every night instead of the bedroom, so we could listen to the ocean waves. Pull down bed was comfy. We will return! We didn't want to leave! THANK you!!!

There is something to be said for watching a Bears game while sitting on a lanai less than 30 feet from the oceanÖ

Papakea A-203 allowed us to do this! This ideally located condo has everything a vacationing couple could ask for. Jan has a studio unit that is located in the best part of a beautifully manicured condo complex that puts you close to everything happening in and around West Maui.

We were first-time visitors to Maui, and first-time users of a vacation condo. It wonít be the last. Every picture we saw online was true to life. The bed was comfortable and easy to use, as advertised. Every description about what was in the condo was accurate, with plenty of stock household items available until you have time to get across to Times Market. The WiFi works well, we were able to use an iPad to call up our home TV over the Internet to watch the game live, and to Skype the grandkids.

Booking this little slice of heaven was as gentle as the light Kona winds that were blowing throughout our stay. Jan provides very detailed information up front about how things work at Papakea, as well as a Maui to-do list which assisted with our trip planning.

We were able to do all of the first-time-to-Maui stuff like Haleakala, the Road to Hana, the Four Winds II to Molokini, UFO Parasailing, and a luau. Mamaís Fish House provided a meal that holds memories for a lifetime. We also had plenty of time to just relax, going up and down the West coast to the beaches.

I have to mention Fish Market Maui, across the Lower Road, where they have the best Fish Sandwich on the planet. It is NOT a Filet-O-Fish! The fresh herbed bun and carmelized sweet Maui onions would be good BEFORE adding the grilled to perfection Ono. We ate there 3 out of 7 days. I love arroz, and who would have thought that I would find the best prepared arroz at Ohana Tacos? Moist, yet light and fluffy.

The things that cannot be related in a review note are the intense colors and dramatic changes in a sunset. Or, the majestic roar of the rolling waves as they hit the reef before they finish the journey to the sea wall. Both of which every reader of this will experience if they decide to take our advice and find a way to experience Maui as soon as they can, and as often as they can. Experience it in style and comfort at Papakea, with Janís superb hosting.

We just returned home to wet cold Oregon from 2 glorious weeks in Maui! Thank you Jan for sharing Papakea A202, it was perfect for us in every way! The condo really felt like our home away from home. We didn't miss anything...right down to the beach chairs, shade umbrella, boogie boards & blender for our frosty drinks! Papakea is in a fantastic location, the grounds are always beautiful and well kept & this condo is in the very best building! We watched 14 magnificent sunsets, countless sea turtles and we ate dinner fresh off the awesome grills from our lanai nightly! We will be back for more peace, quite & paradise! ~ Aloha
Becky B.  on 2012-10-15 16:39:52
This place was wonderful for our stay in Lahaina. My husband and I had breakfast out on the lanai and watched sea turtles poke their heads out of the water. It was close to everything we wanted to see. The place was clean and very updated. The A/C was wonderful as well!! Jan recommended Andreas at Barefoot for booking tours, and I highly recommend him as well! He went above and beyond to help us book our snorkeling and dolphin tour to Lanai! (We waited too long to book it and then had to hunt for availability.) It was an awesome tour!! Thank you for sharing your wonderful accomodations with us!

This was our fist time to Maui and also our 25th Wedding Anniversary. Unit 311 was everything advertised and more. It was the perfect unit to use as our home base and included everything we required. Being newly remodeled it was immaculate inside and also has a location and rental price that is hard to beat. The building and grounds were well taken care of by a very attentive Caretaker. We would not hesitate to stay here again if the opportunity arises and have recommended this unit to many of our friends. A big thanks also to Jan for her incredible hospitality and unbelievable assistance regarding restaurants, sightseeing, rentals, etc.. Listen to Jan as her recommendations and advice were spot on. Thanks for making our stay in Paradise something we will never forget! Mahalo.

Thanks Jan for letting us stay in your comfortable condo. We thoroughly enjoyed it. We loved sitting on the balcony with our wines at night and watching the sunset. The location was perfect so close to everything. Falling asleep at night listening to the sound of the ocean was special. The grounds and facilities at Papakea are excellent also.

We enjoyed our stay in the unit. It was great and included numerous supplies including detergent and dryer sheets for the washer and dryer in the unit. The bath and kitchen were updated and there was lots of room. A great view and a great location. Jan provided a lot of information on the island. Would recommend to anyone looking for a great place to stay.

It was exactly as described and shown in the photos. The condo was immaculate, well furnished including laundry machines, all kitchen appliances and tools. We even made use of the huge BBQs by the pool. Parking lot was near the managerís office which gave added security for our car along with camera surveillance. Be sure to bring your binoculars. The view from the lanai was breathtaking while eating meals, watching the whales, dolphins, turtles, boats and surfers paddling their way across the sunset. Be sure to check the fridge and cupboards before buying groceries. It will save you a few $$. Donít forget to give your phone # at the grocery store, youíll save even more

My wife and I rented Papakea C-402 for 15 days Feb 1-15/12 and really enjoyed this 4th floor unit. Jan was great and delivered a foam bed topper for the master king which made a big difference! Unit is nicely appointed and clean and loft offered additional room and privacy for when our son and girlfriend joined us after first week. Did not have to run A/C at all due to nice front to back breeze between lanai and master windows. Very private, quiet location with great views of grounds, pool and ocean (and tons of whales), and close to lots of walking distance markets and amenities. Enjoyed the free wifi, tennis courts and gas grills around pool area. Have booked again for 2 weeks Xmas 2012 - can't wait.

Awesome location. Technically oceanview but I would consider it oceanfront. Fell asleep to the sound of waves every night. The resort is very low key and family oriented. Everyone gets to know each other around dinner time at the pool and the 6 grills that surround it. It's like social hour. The grass lawn goes right up the the edge of the beach and they have lounge chairs to watch the whales or sunset or just relax. The accommodations have everything you need. Excellent first floor location with Koi pond right in front of your lanai. Our group of 4 was very comfortable. It's not luxurious...it just feels like home. And Jan, the owner, is wonderful to work with. You will be happy with your decision to rent this unit unless you like crowded, rowdy resorts. Papakea is the exact opposite. Hawaii at its finest.

You couldn't ask for a better location. Within walking distance to groceries, restaurants and all the action on Front St. Every morning we would have breakfast on the lanai and watch the whales and turtles! The unit itself is very nice, the new kitchen is great (especially for those who like to cook). We were there for 14 nights and we slept in the murphy bed every day so we could fall asleep to the sound of the ocean. We didn't even make it to the master bedroom (which by the way is also very nice). I couldn't recommend a better place to say, we can't wait to go back! Thanks for everything

Hi Jan, we had a wonderful stay in your condo it was magical. Everything was perfect. It is a little jewel. We especially loved sitting on the Lanai and watching the turtles bob up and down with the wave while we were eating breakfast every morning. The location was perfect close to everything.
We are busy planning our next trip and passing the word around to all our friends.

Thank you, Jan, for making our stay in Maui so comfortable. The four of us were able to take advantage of all the amenities -- closeness to shops and farmers market, pool, ocean, barbeques, and kitchen. We wanted for nothing. In the morning we would drink our coffee on the patio and watch the heron catch fish in the pool, naughty boy! Aloha.

The location of this rental was great. We were within walking distance of the farmer's market, video rental store, grocery store and gift shops. The ABC market had some great souvenirs that actually were just as well priced as the swap meet we drove over to on Saturday on the other side of the island. Snorkel Bob's, also within walking distance, was very helpful and supplied us with great equipment for the week. We had contacts through friends at home to set up activities; however, Andreas with Tom's Barefoot Tours was able to get us the best price on all the activies we wanted to do: zipline, Luau, biking, etc. The condo on the ground floor was great with kids....easy access in and out to get to the pool and beach. I would probably stay higher up if it was just adults trying to relax. Stopping at Costco and WalMart when we first arrived saved us a lot on food. The grills at the pool were great and we used them several times. Thanks Jan!

Jan, your Papakea 202 was wonderful and more than met our needs during our 25th anniversary celebration. The condo was very clean, well stocked and offered GREAT sunsets. Papakea is within 5 miles of the BEST Maui snorkeling spots, grocery stores, banks and snorkel rental within walking distance, and yes McDonalds ( for little kids ) and yet out of the crowded mob areas. Papakea has very well manicured lawns and offers and abundance of cook out grills. If you want to save money and still have a great place, Papakea is for you.

Aloha Jan,

My family and I would love to thank you for the beautiful accomodations you were able to provide for us last minute. We have such a fabulous time in Maui. The Papakea was a very welcoming resort filled with all the necessary amenities to fulfill my families needs. Your 2bdrm condo was the perfect set up. my daughter loved the loft and had a blast on the spiral stairs. She felt like she had her own privacy. The master bedroom was perfect for my husband and myself. Thank you so much for all the toys for my daughter that were in the condo. Everything was clean and easy to find. We will definetly be joining you in the future. Also access to the beach was so easy being in front of the resort, less than 50 steps away. we had a blast swimming and fishing. Thank you again

What a fantastic place you have at Papakea. The condo was just what we had imagined. We had a great time - did the drive to Hana, snorkeled, but mostly hung out here and enjoyed the views! The list of things to do, places to eat, etc., was so helpful. We tried many of the places you recommended. We also enjoyed grilling poolside. Thank you for being such a great hostess!

Staying in the condo at Lahaina Roads made our vacation time the perfect family time. We spent every day surfing, snorkeling, sailing, attending craft fairs and parades, then we got to come "home" to our little condo and listen to the sounds of the surf, watch beautiful sunsets, and relax while planning out our next day.

Jan's pictures and preview letter with helpful hints, available activities and description of the condo was RIGHT ON! No crowds, close to shopping, restaurants, beaches and Lahaina. The view of the harbor was great, sailboats coming and going, saw turtles everyday and had a few spectacular sunsets. We recommend the Ocean Center, Atlantis Submarine ride and the Road to Hana is a must! Jim even went Paragliding. We did our activities the beginning of our two week vacation and spent the last couple of days lounging around the pool and had a couple of BBQ's at the patio. What a wonderful place to spend our 40th anniversary, everything WAS just like being at "home".
Thanks for EVERYTHING !!! Jeannette & Jim

But we were wrong - it just keeps getting better. The moment we walked in the door, it felt like we'd come home. I can't for next year!

Wonderful place to stay - very convenient to everything & a beautiful setting. Watched whales & sea turtles every day from the lanai. The snorkeling right out front is great; better than any of the snorkeling spots you pay to be taken to. Mala warf is only a couple blocks away & the snorkeling is very good there also. The condo & grounds are immaculate & have everything you need. If you are looking for a relaxing, private & convenient place to stay on Maui, this is it! Thanks Jan - we had an awesome time - Mahalo!

My wife and myself loved this unit. We found the location to be great. It was within walking distance to all of the downtown shops/restaurants. As well, the local mall with the grocery store was a 3 minute walk.

The unit itself was great as well. It came equipped with everything you needed (i.e. beach chairs, cooler, and all the kitchen gadgets). The unit has a great view of the ocean and the sunsets are amazing to watch directly from your private balcony. We we cooked our own meals we always ate on the balcony. As well, the unit was nice and modern and is well maintained.

Jan was also very helpful. She called us on our first day to ensure we had everything we needed which was a nice touch!

Aloha Jan, I enjoyed the condo from Oct 24 to Nov 3, 2008. It was the little things we really appreciated: the kitchen was well-stocked and there were many beach towels, coolers, etc. The location is great with a lovely view of both the garden below and the ocean, and amenities are closeby - there's even a health food store just 5 minutes away. Your To-Do list was incredibly informative and helpful for my first Maui trip. Mahalo nui loa and a hui hou! Ali Wessel

Aloha Jan,
Thanks for sharing J104 with us! The prompt attention when we needed help was greatly appreciated! We found the whole complex to our liking and we made good use of the barb-b-ques. Your tips and hints about getting good value for our money were excellent. We loved the Craft Fair( by the Post Office)and shopping Costco was a real saving. We also shopped Star Market and found good sales as well as friendly people. We are passing these hints to friends who will be in Maui later this month.
When the weather is miserable here we just have to picture the beautiful grounds at Papakea and imagine we can see the birds trying to catch fish in the pond. The condo was private and very quiet so we arrived home well rested and looking forward to visiting again.
Thanks again.....Sharon and Johnnie Boot

What a comfortable place and beautiful surroundings. On the ground level, it made it easy to access through the front and the lanai. The pond was just outside and it was just a few steps to the pool, grills and ocean. A beautiful sunset awaits just outside the door. This had by far the best equipped kitchen we've ever had in any condo we have ever stayed in before. Papakea is a great place and having Expedia right there made it very easy to purchase tickets for the many tours we wanted to take. We would definitely stay there again.

My family truly enjoyed our stay in J104. The layout of the unit was quite suitable for my husband and me and our 2 adult sons. The property was beautiful and clean. Jan's "to do" list was so helpful...she really goes above and beyond to make sure her quests have everything they need. We took advantage of some of the suggested local things to do. The Arts and Crafts fair at the Civic Center was fabulous....don't be fooled by the name because it's a display of fine artisans, not your run of the mill craft fair.
The strip mall across the street from Papakea was so convenient...and Java Jazz was probably our favorite restaurant...we ate dinner there twice, and got our lattes there every morning. Star Market has great fresh food, wine, upscale items, and everything else we wanted.
We loved the location as we felt we were close to almost all the places we frequented (Front Street, Black Rock Beach to name a few)
We highly recommend Unit J104, and thank Jan for her attention to detail with all the amenites she provides. We will definitely plan to stay there again.

Papakea J-104 was a wonderful condo for our stay. We enjoyed the ease of a bottom floor unit and the beauty of the view from the lanai and master bedroom. Truly breathtaking. We enjoyed the comfort of the condo after our excursions of the day. It was relaxing to have a "home" to come back to. I highly recommend this unit. Donna Paradis

Jan, we two couples were quite hesitant about booking a condo on-line, but were very pleased with our stay at J-104. We especially appreciated how well furnished it was for us with cooking and baking utensils, all the dishes we could need, and a closet stocked with a few golf clubs, beach umbrella, many towels, swim boards and toys. We especially appreciated having laundry facilities right within our condo. We didn't need/use any A/C the week we were there, but it was great to know it was available. The location was excellent for us; a real central location between scheduled activities in Lahaina, and our daughter's wedding on Kapalua. My sister enjoyed the pool and yogacize classes, and my husband and I loved walking the beach in the early morning. This is not a fancy place, but it is clean and convenient. We'd come back!

We just returned from a 5 night stay in Jan's A-203 condo and have to say that it was just what the doctor ordered. As others have stated on this comments page, the sound of the ocean is awesome to fall asleep to. The condo location was great, the unit was clean and convenient and yes, the murphy bed was very comfortable too! Check in and check out was a breeze and Jan was a pleasure to work with...we would definitely consider this condo for a future visit...which can't be too soon!

We had a great stay in Jan's unit. Sooo close to the ocean, great view (facing west for great sunsets). Very clean and just right for my new wife and me on our honeymoon. Murphy bed was comfier than expected. We especially enjoyed having a kitchen to prepare our own fish at home and eat on the wonderful lanai. Also, very convenient drive to touristy Lahaina and some really great beaches for snorkeling, etc. Would re-visit our recommend to friends and family.

We had a hard time deciding if we should stay at a condo or a hotel as we always have stayed in hotels in the past. We decided on this condo and boy did we make the right decision! We had such a great time. The condo was clean and had everything you needed. Jan is very well organized and sends you all the inforation you need about your stay and what to do or where to eat on the Island. Our view was awesome and we were close to everything. The pool areas were nice and we bbq'ed almost every night. It's a nice quit friendly place to stay and not so busy like the hotels are and you save a ton of money being able to make all your meals if you want. We were worried about the murphy bed but it was very comfortable. All in all, it was a very nice easy place to stay at and we would rent the same room anytime and you should too. Thank you Jan!

My wife and I stayed in Unit 203 for five nights during our recent trip to Hawaii. What a hidden gem. The unit has everything you could possibly want and more. But the best part is the location. You can sleep with the sliders open and listen to the waves as you fall asleep each night. The property itself is quite nice and having the BBQ's out by the pool was great. We give Papakea Unit A203 the highest possible recommendation. We've already spread the word to our friends and family.

I have just returned from a glorious 3 week vacation staying in Unit 203. The unit was perfect and as described. Nothing beats oceanfront views and sounds. Jan is a wealth of information and quickly responds to all questions, no matter how insignificant they may seem. I would return in a heartbeat. Hope everyone enjoys their stay as much as I did.

Well, we are coming to the end of our 'perfect vacation in paradise'. Thanks to you, it was perfect.

We used Tom's barefoot tours as you suggested, and biked the volcano, enjoyed a sunset cruise, helicopter flight over the island, Oahu and Pearl Harbor, we saw wales, and we just returned from 2 nights in Hana Hale Bay and LOVED it! It couldn't have been more perfect and we thank YOU so much for taking care of us as you have.

This condo has been amazing! The view, the beach, the swimming... what can I say but thank you a million
times!!!!

We ate at many of the places you recommended in your 'tips' and loved
them all.

Anyway, I cannot recommend YOU or this fabulous property enough... If we never make it back to Maui,this will be etched in our memories FOREVER! But I hope we will make it back to Maui and SOON and we will definitely want exactly the same condo!
