About Amy Shipley
We are Debbie & Keith with girls Amy, Rebecca and Corah from Alberta. After years of traveling to hot spots around the world the ladies asked why we had never been to Hawaii. The answer was ' the first time we vacation in Hawaii we'll never go anywhere else'. After a vacation to Maui and the Papakea 16 years ago we've never been anywhere else. We're now able to share or home away from home with new and old friends all year long. The Papakea feels as good or better than home everytime we return and we're sure you'll feel the same way.

Perfect Family-friendly Condo
Our kids loved the beach and pool. The grown ups loved the view and the well stocked amenities. It was a little hot and sticky but otherwise perfect.
first of all, the property is lovely, and very well maintained, Appreciated the "extras" such as Hawaiian music, and lei-making. The view from the balcony is amazing! Sunsets were incredible. We really appreciated the use of boogie boards, beach towels and chairs as well as snorkeling equipment and coolers for picnics. On the downside, Maybe we hit a heat wave, but the interior of the condo was very hot. The loft was almost impossible to sleep in. two days in, we called the maintenance man, and he installed a new ceiling fan for loft. A/C is just about useless, as it hits into the TV stand and doesn't help to cool much down. The 2nd bedroom has no ceiling fan, and the oscillating fan was just ok. The only other negative we have is that the "storage area" above the wall in Master bedroom had articles that made it appear a little junky. Maybe that could be enclosed? Overall, we enjoyed our stay. The proximity to Farmers Market and Grocery store was great..
Papakea is a beautiful and restful complex. Unit A403 right on the beach is wonderful. We had 4 adults and two high age teens and everyone felt very comfortable. The two lower bedrooms are fine and the loft bedroom is great for teens or children. Our grandchildren were thrilled to be able to go right outside and snorkel among the sea turtles. Saw so many different types of fish. The unit is nicely appointed, although one bedroom ceiling fan was missing. The owner, Amy, took care of the problem within one day. A negative is the clothes washer that sounds like an airplane taking off. Future guests should absolutely plan to attend the first morning presentation on various side tours and activities available; so much good information provided. The complex’s location is perfectly situated close to major grocery stores, the ABC store, Kapalua, and Lahaina. It was a great week celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. Looking forward to returning for whale watching.
Awesome condo and condo resort on the water
Absolutely great vacation. Lanai overhangs the water and we enjoyed watching turtles and whales from the Lanai. Grounds were well maintained and the follow up and service provided by the owner was top notch.
Hi Daniel, Thank you so much for the great review. We're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your time. I hope we can host you again soon in the near future. Thanks again, Amy
My wife and I and two other couples stayed in this ocean front condo. It has amazing views of the ocean. From the lanai we say whales, dolphins and turtles. The sunsets from the unit are stunning. It was roomy enough for all of us and is amply stocked with supplies. We felt right at home for our two week stay.
We're so happy you enjoyed your stay! Thank you very much for the review. We don't typically see dolphins from the lanai so you lucked out! I hope we can host you again soon. Amy
