Paradise!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 308 Lahaina Roads. The condo was perfect with such a beautiful view! Close to downtown Lahaina too. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need, except a blender. (Note from Owner - I have blenders in stock and would have provided one if I had known. The previous guest might have broken it and thrown it out without letting me know. Sorry for the inconvenience.) Other than that it had everything!! There was nothing like swimming in the pool with the ocean right there...make sure you look for sea turtles. They showed up every evening at sunset right at the sea wall. Thank you Jan for sharing your treasure with us!!

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 ocean…

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 won’t 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. Mama’s 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 Jan’s 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

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.

This condo was perfect for us. It was easy to get around
to all our activities, and Jan was very helpful giving us
information to assist us in our planning. The condo was
well appointed and clean. Loved the ocean view. Would definitely book again when we return.

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 manager’s 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 $$. Don’t forget to give your phone # at the grocery store, you’ll 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
