This is a spacious condo ideal for families or couples looking for a serene environment where one can relax after a day out in the water, on Maui sightseeing or on the golf course.
The property is presently owned by KESAG Hawaii Ltd. incorporated in the State of Hawaii with registered domicile in Maui (Hawaii Tax I.D. No. W-40064872-01).
The condo is unique within the Whaler property because it is decorated tastefully throughout with Maui marine artwork by Robert Lyn Nelson. Thus one can fully enjoy the beauty of the Maui waters also inside the condo!
Unit 121/123 is on the ground floor with a large private lanai and courtyard garden corner from where you get a glimpse of the ocean. It's a great place to read or let children play outside.
The location cannot be beaten! The Whaler as a whole is a newly renovated premium resort on Kaanapali Beach, next to the Whaler's Village (90 shops, stalls and restaurants with direct access), and has two world class golf courses right behind it.
It is a 10-minute drive to Lahaina and Kapalua where you will find more beaches, golf resorts like the world-famous Plantation Course, shops, restaurants, art galleries, theatres and lots of entertainment.
Of course, The Whaler also has a newly renovated pool with a hot tub, a beach kiosk with towel service, tennis courts, an onsite spa, gym, business center, concierge and an activity reservation desk which are all within a one minute's walk from Unit 121/123.

The Whaler is located beach-front on Kaanapali Beach with 3 miles of glittering white sand. On the other side of the blue ocean, Lanai Island is part of the daily Hawaiian sun-set ritual and the area in between is the home of the Humpback Whales from December to early April for splendid whale-watching.
Year Purchased: 1987
About the owner: My father bought the condo when I was only 7 and my siblings were 9 and 5. We came every year from Tokyo to Maui to enjoy the spring break and the summer vacations.
We did everything and never got tired of: playing in the pool, swimming with the dolphins in the ocean, snorkeling in Molokini, parasailing, whale watching, drive up Mt. Haleakela and biking down from the top of the volcano as well as the challenging drive on the winding road to Hana and the Seven Pools.
Of course, as we grew older, we joined our parents on many of the beautiful golf courses in Maui.
Our family shares so many fond memories of our vacations in Maui, including my sister's wedding at the Olowalu Plantation in 2005 and my father's 70th Anniversary Celebration in 2008.
Now that we have all grown up, my parents and I primarily come to Maui to play golf and enjoy the beautiful weather and views of the ocean. After 25 years, we are still not tired of Maui and immensely enjoy every stay.
Now, the property is owned by KESAG Hawaii Ltd., a company incorporated in the State of Hawaii with headquarters in Maui and owned by the whole family. Soon, my nephews and nieces will start coming to Maui and to The Whaler to learn how to swim with the turtles. Hopefully, I shall have my own children to bring here some day as well.
Why the Owner Chose The Whaler: When our family came for the first to Maui in the mid-1980ies, we stayed at a hotel and soon realized the space limitations for a family with children. The second time, my father decided to change to a condo which met our various requirements almost to perfection.
We also realized that Maui's reputation as 'The best Island in the World' was more than an empty slogan and we soon became 'Maui-addicted' and wanted to come again and again.
My father's logical conclusion was to buy a condo for ourselves and The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach was an easy choice as the Premier Resort in Maui already 25 years ago.
Now, with the US$35,000,000 total renovation and rejuvenation completed in 2012, The Whaler has regained its reputation as the Premier Resort on Kaanapali and received a Certificate of Excellence from
Trip Adviser and a 3-Diamond Rating from AAA.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: The condo boasts one of the largest collection of Robert Lyn Nelson (Maui's famous marine artist) artwork in Maui outside of his studio. Special visits to the artist can be arranged depending on his availability on the island.
The property also features a large lanai and private lawn garden corner which is unique to a ground floor property and makes the unit particularly suitable for children. We are also close to the beautiful landscaping of the courtyard.
The unit also provides easy ground floor access for seniors who enjoy the serene beauty of the scenery both inside and outside of the condo.
