My husband and I recently spent 3.5 weeks in Maui at Papakea. This year we stayed in E106 for the first time. What a pleasant surprise to arrive and find things were exactly as described, if not better! Michelle has put so much thought into the decor and the all round comfort of this condo, you could not find a nicer place anywhere in West Maui.

The ground floor suited us very well, we could just walk out to the pool area and also in the evening, we filled our plastic glasses and wandered down to the grassy area beside the ocean and joined the other guests to watch the many spectacular sunsets. Honestly, it never gets old, no matter how many times you watch. I have since heard that the kitchen has brand new appliances, so that will make it a pleasure to dream up some home cooked dinners.

The other thing we loved was the king sized bed. It was so comfortable we spent some time trying to decipher the brand, and it turned out to be a Serta, so we are on the look out for the same mattress, it was that good! Papakea is a very well run resort with good parking and security guards at night. The Times market is just across the road and if you forget something you can just go through the gate to the ABC store which backs onto the property. Supplies in this condo, like laundry soap, dishwasher pods, t.p., kitchen rolls, cleaning materials etc. were all very generous.

Also added bonus, some nice spices, salt & pepper grinders, kitchen gadgets etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in E106 and would definitely recommend it and also award it a 5 star rating.
