The Whaler condo description
Aloha and Welcome to our little piece of Paradise.
The Whaler has long been considered a premier luxury beachfront property on Maui's Ka'anapali Beach. Stroll down the boardwalk to Whaler's Village located next door, where you will find a number of award winning restaurants and upscale shopping for your enjoyment. Enjoy a Mai Tai while watching the Maui sunset or listen to live Hawaiian music while dining under the stars.
HOUSEKEEPING - All linens are provided. Check-out cleaning is included free of charge. Additional cleaning during your stay can be arranged for a nominal fee.
DEPOSIT INFORMATION - A deposit of 3 nights rental is due immediately after reservations are made. The balance, plus a $400 damage deposit, is due 60 days prior to arrival. The damage deposit is fully refundable upon satisfactory inspection of the unit's condition following your stay. The condo association firmly enforces the Hawaii's non-smoking law and violation will result in forfeiture of deposit.
CANCELLATION POLICY - Cancellations received 60 days or more prior to arrival will be completely refunded, less $100 processing fee. Cancellations received less than 60 days prior to arrival but at least 30 days prior to arrival will be subject to a 3 night minimum charge. Reservations cancelled less than 30 days prior to arrival, refunds will be made only for those nights that have been re-rented, less $100 processing fee. We highly recommend "trip-cancellation" insurance for unforseen circumstances.

Clean and Comfortable
Clean and Comfortable
Started with the basics. You can rent a condo with a gorgeous view but if it is not clean and comfortable; are you happy? This place has it all. Check-in was easy and since there was no one in the condo the day were arriving or the day we were leaving the owner graciously offered an early check-in and late check-out if we needed, unfortunately we did not need either. The description and photos accurately depicted the condo. I always worry about the bed. Didn't need to be, the bed and couch were very comfortable. There were little extras around the condo that made you feel appreciated. There was a cooler, beach chairs, and an umbrella that were nice to have for beach days. The owner was easy to work with and we really enjoyed our stay. A couple of things about the Whaler that you should know. If staying in tower 2 you want to be on the shade side away from Whaler's Village, this unit is both. In the afternoon when it was 86 degrees and we were lounging on the lanai and no one in the condos across from us were as the sun was pelting the lanais on that side of tower 1. I read on trip advisor that units overlooking Whaler's Village have a lot of noise from delivery trucks and air conditioners, this unit was very quiet. We never utilized the exercise room so can't comment there. The pool was okay but I don't go to Maui for pools and the ocean is steps from the condo. Black Rock is just a short stroll away where the snorkeling is very good. There was a comment I read somewhere about insufficient towels at the pool but we never encountered that. We did have an issue with the refrigerator. We lost some of our food. The refrigerator was replaced towards the end of our stay. When the new one arrived of course it was warm. We managed and didn't let it bother us, but here's the kicker, the owner gave us a refund without us even having to ASK! That has never happened to me before; says a lot about the owner. We will return to Maui and if staying on Kaanapali Beach would rent this unit again.

Damage Refund not return.... as agreed

The room was in average conditions... the towel racks were missing in both bathrooms which we reported on our arrival but were still not installed 7 days later when we left. Have contacted the owner by email, mail and phone with no response. The 2 times we the phone was answered we were assured the refund would be mailed. It is now a month and a half and no phone call or refund. I would not use VRBO again in renting a condo, you have no recourse in a situatuion such as this.

Owner response: I guess some people are never happy no matter what you do to assist them. I went out of my way to accommodate my guest and I even gave them a deep discount off my regular rate because they were traveling with family. I spoke to them when they arrived and were very happy. They mentioned the towel rack was broken so I offered to get it fixed and they replied that it was not a big deal that I could fix it after they left. Their refund was returned within 5 days after they checked out. Apparently the check was lost and they never received it. I just heard of this a week ago and a replacement check has been overnighted to them. They should know about lost checks in the mail since his original check for payment was never received and they had to send a replacement 3 weeks later.
We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful, roomy and very comfortable condo. The property had everything we needed including tennis rackets and balls which you can just sign out. The pool was lovely and the grounds are extremely well maintained. The deck has recently been re-tiled and it was very large with a great view. The beach in front of the property is perfect (not as crowded as it is further north by Black Rock). There are beach chairs and an umbrella in the condo and you can exchange your beach towels whenever you need to. Overall very comfortable and relaxing.

Lovely view & Balcony
Lovely view & Balcony
Loved the view and balcony of this condo. We are Aston owners ourselves, and enjoy staying at the Whaler. The condo was spacious and equipped with everything we needed. The balcony is quite large, with stunning views of the ocean. Washer/dryer (coin op) located right next door - around the corner of the main hallway. Condo a tad outdated, but location, location, location! We would definitely come back. :)

We stayed for 2 weeks and loved every minute. The grounds are beautiful, the view from the room is breathtaking, the Whaler staff and the Owner were incredibly helpful easy to work with. The location couldn't be better, Ka'anapali beach is the best location with shopping, fantastic food, and excellent snorkeling at Black Rock just a few minutes walk from the Whaler. The room had everything we needed, was clean, and had plenty of space, storage, and privacy for the 4 of us. We could even watch whales from the lanai (we even saw one launch itself out of the water breach!). We will be back!
