About Mimi Donohue
I fell in love with Maui on my first visit in 1989. Jim and I were married on the grounds of the Papakea in 1997. In 2002, we had the opportunity to purchase this oceanfront, top floor unit that looks down on the exact spot we tied the knot! The Papakea has always been very special to us and we love sharing it with family, friends, and fellow travelers who want to enjoy a slice of paradise, if only for a while!
Mimi Donohue purchased this Condo in 2002
Why Mimi Donohue chose Lahaina
The Papakea is on the west side of the island right on the West Maui Channel where the humpback whales make their annual migration. Our lanai is a front row seat to all the action! The islands of Lanai and Molokai, across the channel, offer stunning views in the daytime and gorgeous sunsets every night. And, with the West Maui mountains directly behind the Papakea, we always have wonderful breezes and frequent rainbows, after brief afternoon showers. It's enchanting!
What makes this Condo unique
The Papakea offers all the amenities you'd expect at a resort but maintains a relaxed and authentic Hawaiian feel where guests can feel at home. We LOVE using the grills and enjoying a sunset dinner from our own lanai! Although Papakea has it's own beach area, it's also conveniently located to famous beaches such as Kapalua Bay, Napili Bay, and Dig-Me Beach. Everything you need is close by...shopping, dining, golf, excursions, you name it!

The place was nice and in a good location and with a great view
The only real down fall it has is that it only has one bathroom
Papakea Ocean Front Resort
Great property with fabulous oceanfront views of Molakai and Lanai Islands. The condo unit was spotless and had all the amenities we needed for our stay on Maui. Nice pool and plenty of outdoor grills which we used often after a full day on this beautiful land. The air conditioner was helpful for cooling the unit down in the evening. Mimi was very helpful in getting our family settled in and provided some great tips on activities and restaurants. Would definitely stay again if we return to Maui on vacation.
what a beautiful place to call home for two weeks!!! Absolutely loved every minute!
Mimi is a doll!! Beautiful property!
Maui Play Time
The condo is in an excellent location located on well maintained grounds. The pool was heated, and the condo was fully stocked with almost everything you need. It even had large beach towels which we used every day as well as beach chairs and two small coolers. The beds were very comfortable (both pillows and mattresses). And, most importantly, the view was perfect. When we were there, we left the sliding door wide open. The ocean sounds were loud and beautiful. The owner was most helpful in both sending us information and leaving a great binder with useful information in the condo. We used the Expedia person located at the main desk to book two excursions. If you go to the morning 1 hour session talk, they give out prizes and give you lots of useful information even if you don't book with them. Also, if you go into Lahaina on the main street, there are various booking booths/people with extremely good prices. Bottom line, we plan on returning to Maui and rebooking with Mimi.
Condo was clean, comfortable and included a spectacular view! We had everything we needed to enjoy our downtime after exploring Maui all day. Shopping was across the street to gather whatever we needed for meals at home and the kitchen supplied everything necessary to stay in. Grounds are immaculate and so many activities to keep the family busy! It was a very memorable family vacation and we were so grateful to have stayed in this condo and watch the whales go by morning and night.
Amazing resort!!! Centrally located and well kept property!! Will stay again!! Loved the Mai TaiThursdays with live local entertainment!!
