Property description

......Just a few comments from our happy guests:
- 'We are Whaler vacation 'regulars' and this is, by far, the nicest unit we have stayed in. We're booking our next vacation reservation for this unit before we leave for home.'
- 'Our most memorable Hawaiian vacation. We'll be back to the Whaler on future trips, and we'll ask for your unit every time.'
- 'We loved the DVD movie collection for entertainment after dinner.'
- 'Your kitchen is amazing. I took photos for ideas for my own upcoming kitchen remodel.'

Seeking a premium luxury condo for a special vacation . . . . . WHALER UNIT 312, located on the more comfortable and quiet (North) side on the third floor of Tower 1, is a garden and ocean view, five-room suite of luxury accommodation rooms in The Whaler on Ka'anapali Beach, the 'Grand Lady' of resort condominiums centrally located on the beach rated by many travel magazines as the best beach on Planet Earth . . . Ka'anapali Beach, Maui.

For that special Hawaiian vacation, WHALER UNIT 312 is spectacular and has recently completed a half-year full renovation for our guests. It is a 5-STAR resort apartment in every respect. Newly appointed with an updated kitchen, featuring G.E. Cafe and SubZero appliances and beautiful granite counter tops. The gourmet kitchen and both luxury baths are updated with extensive use of elegant mable tiles and best quality cabinets and fixtures. The apartment has a convenient wine chiller-refrigerator and cabinet bar for entertaining. The master bath features a designer marble-tiled 'shower chamber' with opposing 'his and hers' Grohe shower heads and controls.

Built of steel-reinforced concrete walls, ceilings and flooring, the towers of The Whaler are structurally superior and measurably more quiet than many of the surrounding resorts. As an added measure to further assure guest privacy and satisfaction, extensive use of the newest high-tech soundproofing materials was installed within the bath walls and layered on all water pipes during the recent remodel of the apartment to minimize audible water pipe sound and any other noise from transferring into Unit 312 from surrounding apartments. Unit 312 is a very quiet suite of rooms -- restful enjoyment of the apartment is assured.

Unit 312 is a comfortable one master bedroom suite (extra sleeping accommodations by use of the convertible sofa), with two elegant baths, this suite of rooms has a fabulous view of the beach and beachwalk and the Pacific Ocean beyond, mystical Black Rock (a sacred Hawaiian volcanic rock feature of Ka'anapali Beach), and spectacular, picture-perfect Maui sunsets directly from our lanai. The comfort, convenience and decor panache of Unit 312 does not disappoint.

Furnishings are luxury quality throughout, including several Hawaiian heirloom pieces made of rare koa wood. Unit 312 also contains a museum-quality Polynesian art and artifact collection for guest enjoyment. Available for guest use are two flat screen TVs with DVD players and home theatre sound system with a 70+ DVD feature film collection with favorite movies of past Oscar award performances, action, adventure, history, westerns, fantasy, and favorite animation features for the children for fun evenings of nightly 'family film festivals' and on those rainy days when the kids can't play outside.

Possibly the best luxury quality accommodations that The Whaler on Ka'anapali Beach has to offer . . . Unit 312 will make your Maui vacation a joy to remember.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I am a retired high school teacher. My husband is a forensic accountant and retiree from PriceWaterhouseCoopers. We raised 3 children and have 3 grandchildren. Our full-time home is in Palos Verdes (Los Angeles area).

Why the Owner Chose The Whaler:
Jim and I bought in Hawaii because we love Hawaii (my husband was born here, but moved to California when he was 1). We spent our honeymoon in Hawaii and lived on Oahu for 2 years when we were young. We bought at The Whaler because we had stayed here on a vacation and loved both the convenient location and the great beach. Sitting in the living room, watching Black Rock and listening to the sounds of the ocean is unbeatable!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Outstanding location, shady (not hot) lanai with a great view of Black Rock and the ocean. Being on the 3rd floor, we are high enough for a good view and privacy yet are not uncomfortably high. Our condo has upscale appliances, a fully furnished kitchen, a unique master bath with 2 showers and touches of Hawaiiana throughout (see our pictures).
