Welcome to The Whaler Unit 514 on Kaanapali Beach - the best beach resort in the world! We are located in the Whaler Resort which has just received the coveted AAA 3 Diamond status and is currently in TripAdvisor's top ten ranked resorts in Lahaina. Our condo was recently completely remodeled to “A” Status with new king size Serta Presidential Suite bed, fully furnished with designer touches including 37' flat panel HD 1080P LCD TV, blu ray player, gourmet stainless steel appliances, stunning upgraded granite counters and cherry wood cabinets in the kitchen and bath. You will enjoy the walk-in frameless glass shower tiled in travertine with beach pebble accents and the luxury of “his” and “hers” sinks in the vanity.
NOTE: Our condo rate includes daily maid service guaranteeing that you won’t EVER have to vacuum, launder your towels or have to make the bed during your stay, no extra cleaning or check-in fees, free broadband internet, and is managed by ASTON HOTELS and RESORTS property management providing 24 Hour On-Site, Front Desk and Hotel Operator Services to ensure that your needs are met at any time, day or night, and in a timely manner -- amenities not always available with other condos at Whaler.
The newly landscaped courtyard with dramatic waterfall and koi pond, welcoming porte cochere drive up entrance, remodeled pool, spa and garage will make your vacation experience better than ever!
**NOTE** If the dates you are looking for are already reserved for my condo unit 514, please contact me for availability at another Whaler 'A' rated studio.

***NOTE*** Please contact owner for AAA, Military, Government employee or '50 years old and older' rates
Wake up every morning to the sounds of the waves on the beach and birds in the trees just outside your private lanai. Each evening relax on the bar height chairs and table of your private lanai, enjoy a Mai Tai and watch the Hawaiian diver dive off the cliff at Black rock at sunset - a great way to start your night time activities before heading out to dinner at a beachfront restaurant just next door!
Beach and ocean activities including swimming, surfing, snorkeling, scuba and sailing are just steps away or, if you prefer, you can chill out by our recently remodeled pool and spa. Tee off at the Kaanapali Golf Course or play a game of tennis at one of the Whaler’s courts. When you are ready for lunch or dinner, you are right next door to outstanding restaurants at Whaler’s Village (world class shopping, too!) or along the beach boardwalk.
A highlight of your trip from December to March will be watching the humpback whales from the lanai or taking a whale watching boat trip which can be arranged by the concierge at the Whaler.
Note: please send me an email if you would like me to send you larger pictures!

Wonderful condo - great location!
Wonderful condo - great location!
We came here to celebrate our 33rd wedding anniversary and really enjoyed our stay. The condo had very nice Hawaiian décor - we thought it was nicer than the photos showed. The view from the lanai was beautiful; we enjoyed drinking coffee in the mornings and watching the sun come up and the boats sail by. We also enjoyed watching the birds. We got to see some breath-taking sunsets and beautiful rainbows, too. The kitchen and bathroom were very nicely updated with granite and very high quality cabinetry. The kitchen had all of the supplies we needed to prepare meals. We could tell the owners had really tried to anticipate renters' needs by supplying items such as a safe, magnifying make-up mirror, laundry and dishwashing soap, etc., in addition to the usual toiletries. A washer and dryer were on our floor - just a short distance away. Parking is underneath the condo towers. The Whaler is in a fantastic location. The beach is absolutely beautiful and the water is very clear - great for snorkeling. The reef is about 15-20 feet off the beach and Black Rock is a short walk down the beach. (Be aware that there is a very strong long shore current near the tip of Black Rock; there are no life guards on duty at the beach.) They provide beach towels and you can rent snorkel, mask, fins, boogie board, cabana, beach chairs, etc. right in front of the property on the beach. Lots of activities to do here - including parasailing, stand up paddling, dinner cruises, etc. Plus, it's located next door to Whaler Village and some great restaurants. I highly recommend the Hula Grill and Barefoot Beach Café (two restaurants in one; one is more casual) and Leilani's - both had outstanding food. The Barefoot Beach cafe had live music. They both offer gluten free menus. We watched wonderful hula dance performances in Whaler's Village for free after dinner one night, while enjoying Hagen Daz ice cream. The shopping in Whaler's Village is great and there is also a food court. You can purchase a limited number of groceries and alcohol, in addition to well-priced souvenirs at the ABC Store. We bought groceries at the Safeway in nearby Lahaina. The tour groups pick up directly from the hotel. We took the Road to Hana tour (Valley Isle Excursions)and the Haleakala Sunrise and Bike tour. I highly recommend both. Overall, we loved our time here and hope to return in the future. I highly recommend this condo and The Whaler to others.

Magical Maui at The Whaler
Magical Maui at The Whaler
We had an excellent stay at The Whaler. The unit has been completely updated and it's got plenty of room but you'll spend most of your time on the lanai enjoying the view of the ocean views and teh island of Molakai. If you go between October and March you can watch the humpback whales breaching and slapping their tales as you enjoy breakfast. Housekeeping services were terrific. It's nice to be able to cook and not have to clean up after yourself on vacation. The location right on Kaanapali Beach, with the Beach Walk and Whaler's Village right there, is perfect. Snorkeling at Black Rock is a must, as is a whale watching boat trip in season. The concierge staff was very helpful in recommending dining options, such as Mala Ocean Tavern in Lahaina. They can also book tee times across the street for the golfers. Maui is the "Island of the Sun" and we were treated to some stunning sunsets from The Whaler. This was our first trip to Kaanapali Beach but it could very well become an annual destination. We'll be back.

Owner response: Thank you for your wonderful comments on my condo at the Whaler and our services. I totally agree with you - when I am on vacation, I want the availability of a full kitchen to prepare meals, but I hate to do all the cleanup. I offer my guests daily maid service to take care of the cleaning chores and allow them to fully enjoy their vacation! Of course, there are so many great restaurants nearby including Mala Ocean Tavern, that it is often a challenge to decide whether to grill up some fresh fish or steaks on the bbq and relax at the condo or to walk next door to Whaler's Village and enjoy a great meal with live entertainment on the beach at Hula Grill or Leilani's!
This studio is spacious, immaculate, nicely decorated and fully equipped, leaving nothing to ask for. The location is excellent with restaurants, entertainment, and shopping within walking distance; yet peace and quiet prevails on your lanai or at bedtime. You may enjoy walking or jogging on the beach, the boardwalk, or on footpaths through the golf course across the road. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful, as are the resident owners we met during our stay. You can readily send those whale images on your smartphone to envious friends back home; the wireless modem is in your room giving excellent WiFi signal at all times. We appreciated the e-mail from Michele which suggested activities and dining options. The beach is excellent, not crowded, nice sandy bottom; proximity to Black Rock and a reef in front of the Whaler offers snorkeling on site. We recommend this condo without reservation.

Owner response: So glad you enjoyed staying in my condo and all the amenities and conveniences of the Whaler and its fantastic location. Ka'anapali Beach/ Maui is a place that we enjoy returning to again and again. Each time we return, we discover great new restaurants, sites, beaches and activities!
What a wonderful studio in the perfect location! The daily maid service and no cleaning fee was an added bonus! Free DVD and playstation rentals too! I loved sleeping with the windows open and hearing the ocean. Will surely stay here again.

Owner response: Thank you for your kind words! I am glad you enjoyed my little bit of paradise. One of the main reasons I use Aston Hotels and Resorts as my property manager is so that I can provide daily maid service, 24/7 access to maintenance and additional amenities for my guests such as the complementary DVD and Playstation rentals, thus offering a superior experience over other owners who rent their Whaler condos on their own or with other property managers.
We had an amazing vacation while staying at this clean and welcoming condo in Kaanapali! The staff at the 'Whaler' were always helpful, courteous, and cheerful! The location is excellent and the pictures online are true to form. When booking our stay the owners were pleasant and very informative of the restaurants and activities around Maui; the hula pie at Leolani's was sinful! If you plan on taking a vacation to Maui make sure to hit up Leoda's in Olowalu and experience the dinner comedy show Warren and Annabelle's on Front Street. I would HIGHLY suggest staying at this condo!! You won't be disappointed. Thank you Michele for helping make another trip to Maui memorable! Mahalo Alicia

Owner response: Thanks for your kind words. We are really glad you enjoyed our condo! We chose Aston Hotels and Resorts as our property manager because they are available for our guests onsite 24 hours a day and we have them provide daily maid service to keep our condo in top condition for you. Aloha and please consider us for our next trip to Maui. -- Michele

It was perfect!
My husband and I can't say enough about our stay in this condo... it was perfect! Spacious, immaculate, well-maintained and a central location to all the activities Michele recommended. The informational email she sent before our departure for Maui was very informative and, in addition, she was open to a telephone conversation when we had further questions. We experienced killer calamari at the Hula Grill next door and Michele's son's favorite dessert at Leilani's - Hula Pie, and breakfast (our favorite at Aloha Mixed Plate right on the ocean front as you enter Lahaina). Snorkeling with the recommended rashgard shirts to prevent sunburn (get great deals on these at Costco by the airport), we found Honolua Bay the best because it is sheltered from the wave action. Our suggestion is to rent a waist flotation device if you are not an excellent swimmer... saves energy and a lot safer. Our favorite tourist things were the Saturday market in Kahului, arts and crafts market in Lahaina by the Post Office on Sunday, Haleakala at sunrise, the Warren and Annabelle Magic Show in Lahaina, parasailing with UFO the morning of July 4 and shave ice at Ululanis (so good we had it 8 times out of the 10 days we were there!). We could not write a review without mentioning Veronitiki, our cleaning attendant. Not only did she keep everything sparkling clean, she even started the dishwasher for us. The best thing about Maui is the people we met and the stories we shared, from service people to tourists. If there was anything we could suggest, it would be to provide 2 lawn/beach chairs to sit on the grounds/beach. We are older and gave up laying on beach towels long ago! We rented two but it was inconvenient picking them up and returning them in Lahaina. Thanks, Michele, for sharing your little piece of heaven in Maui. We appreciated every detail!

Great location to the beach and multiple activities. The listing description and photos accurately describe the rental and Michele was extremely helpful with suggestions. It was wonderful to have daily cleaning and to be able to have a full kitchen for cooking on site. Would recommend Eco-Adventure Ziplining, Leilani's fish tacos and parasailing. We had a wonderful 9 day stay! Melissa

Excellent condo and great Maui experience! My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at the Whaler Inn at this condo. It was nicely updated and had all of the amenities you could want. The condo was comfortable and had a great view of the beach…always nice to have the waves lull you to sleep at night. The location at the Whaler was perfect walking distance to restaurants, shopping, the beach and snorkeling at Black Rock. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this condo, and plan on booking it next year when we return to Maui for our second visit!

We have just returned from spending a week in unit 514 and absolutely loved it! We came from The Westin Kaanapali Ocean Villas where we also had a studio and I can tell you that it was not even closed to the size of this studio. Nicely decorated, great staff from our check-in staff to the daily maid service, to the people running the beach activities stand all so friendly and willing to assist in any way. Will definitely be staying in this studio again. Mahalo Michelle!!!

Owner response: Thank you Terri for your kind words! So glad you enjoyed our little bit of paradise. We remodeled our unit ourselves and had fun choosing all of the furnishings and finishes. We appreciate a luxurious experience when we vacation at our condo and are happy to share the experience with our guests. We have specifically chosen Aston Hotels and Resorts as our property manager because they are onsite 24/7 and can cater to your every need. Not all of the condos at the Whaler use Aston Hotels and Resorts and there is a big difference in the guests’ vacation experience.
What a lovely time we had, perfect location and so lovely after the renovations. Can't believe the difference 6 months can make. We are now only staying at the Whaler from now on and this condo is situated on a quiet side with all new everything. Loved it and can't wait to return.

About: We have vacationed on Maui for over 25 years. After staying at all the resort hotels on Kaanapali from the Hyatt Regency on down to the Sheraton and elsewhere on Maui we decided to purchase our condominium at The Whaler - on the best beach on Maui and considered by many to be the best beach resort in the world! Location, Location, Location! The Whaler is in the heart of Kaanapali Beach right next door to Whaler's Village with wonderful beachfront restaurants and world class shopping. Snorkeling at Black Rock just down the beach from the Whaler is awesome! We love having the convenience of our condo for cooking our own meals when we want to and the access to great restaurants when we want something special! We recently completely remodeled our condo to 'A' status including limestone tiled walk-in shower, 'his' and 'hers' sinks and granite counters in the bathroom, water saving toilet, stainless steel appliances, granite counter and cherry wood cabinets in the kitchen, a brand new king size bed and new 37' Hi Def flat panel TV. All professionally decorated for relaxing and comfortable resort living. We are sure you will enjoy our little piece of paradise as much as we do! P.S. In our photo, we are having a lot of fun at the Halloween Parade in Lahaina!
