                        My husband and I stayed in Maui for a week for our honeymoon and stayed in Jim's condo. We were more than happy with EVERYTHING we experienced. Jim was very helpful with any questions I had about anything, and was very quick at responding. The Whaler's staff were very helpful when checking into our room, and helped with delivering our luggage to our room. The condo was very clean and well-managed when we arrived! When we first walked into the room we were amazed at how beautiful the room and deck really was! The view towards Black Rock and Kaanapali Beach was phenomenal at every moment of the day. We ate breakfast on the deck every morning and listened to the waves was a great sound. The kitchen had a lot of extra things you can use to cook yourself. There was pots, pans, plates, cups, utensils, tupperwares, condiments, coffee, and even boogie boards and more. It was conveniently located next to Whaler's Village, Black Rock, and Hula Grill (which we highly recommend). This is truly a perfect getaway room right on the ocean for a great price!

                        Recommended for: Tourists without a car, girls getaway, pet owners, people with disabilities, age 55+, adventure seekers, romantic getaway, families with young children, families with teenagers, sightseeing.

                        We really enjoyed our stay at your beautiful condo! The murphy bed was very comfortable and we liked the fact that we could put it up in the morning and have the extra room during the day. The view was excellent and we had breakfast eash morning sitting on the patio and looking at Black Rock. The kitchen was beautifully remodeled and had everything we needed.The location is great, being able to walk over to Whalers Village is a big plus. We walked over several nights and had dinner and watched the sunset. We would definitely come back and stay at this condo again!

                        Jim's condo was spotless and was set up very welcoming to us. The bellman (Nathan) was wonderful! He took all of our groceries and luggage up to our room and than he helped me put groceries away inside the refrigerator. After that he gave us a tour of the condo and also gave us helpful information. Jim's description was accurate regarding location, photos, appearance and amenities only everything was even better in person! Jim was great throughout the whole process of the rental agreement. The property and the condo were extremely maintained very well. Everything was just gorgeous! Jim and the staff were more than kind, professional and helpful including a very nice lady named Star with the cleaning service. This condo was 100 times better than staying at any of the other hotels on this beach! We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay! I would absolutely recommend Jim's condo to everyone I know. I would recommend surfing lessons from Royal Hawaiian Surf Academy and I would Not recommend Surf lessons from a company called Opelu Surf. I would also recommend the Teralani Catamaran Premier Snorkel. From the airport we stopped at Cosco (it's right near the airport) for food, milk and alcohol. There is also a place called Food Land right near the condo. It's a short drive from the condo and they had excellent steaks for very reasonable prices. We BBQ'd on the condo's beautiful outside grills at night and ate either on the beautiful outside tables by the grill or on the beautiful condo's balcony. The condo was so convenient to get into from the beach that it was even easier to go into the condo and grab a bite to eat rather than going to one of the many restaurants near by. Our favorite restaurant was Kimos. We had lunch there and they have the Best Fish Sandwich and Hula Pie! I would recommend getting a rental car. We didn't use ours that much but, it was nice to use to and from the airport and to go the store. A lot of people like to drive "the road to Hana" but, I didn't want to be in and out of a car all day. We were very satisfied just walking around the beach, going into the ocean, the pool and hot tub. Thank you Jim, Nathan, Star and front desk staff for making this an extremely satisfying vacation!

                        My new husband and I stayed at Jim's condo for 4 nights at the end of our honeymoon and we loved it! We were very happy with the view from our Lanai, directly to black rock! It was our first time staying at the Whaler and we were so glad to be staying in Tower 2 with an interior facing view because the view was amazing AND it blocks the noise from the Whaler Village. The condo is very well equipped and had everything we needed and more. Highly recommend!!!

                        We have stayed at the Whaler several times but I would have to say this was the nicest unit yet. It is beautifully decorated with top of the line fixtures . Fantastic view from the balcony of Black Rock and the beach. Everything is so convienient at the Whaler that I would not stay at any other place. Location, location, location....would stay here everytime if possible . Jim made the rental process so easy and was always quick to respond to any questions. Hope to return as soon as possible.

                        Recently my wife and I and our two teenage daughters stayed in the studio for a week. We stayed for a week last year too. Both times, we found the place to be well cared for, super clean, and were pampered because of all the luxurious touches the condo had to offer. The place was recently remodeled to a very high standard. Between the Murphy bed and pullout sofa bed, there was plenty of room for four of us. The kitchen was first class. Of course, the ocean view is spectacular and the location is ideal, being on the boardwalk and right next to Whaler's Village. We will definitely return next year.

                        This condo is gorgeous inside with a stunning view of the beach and blackrock. Everything is new and tastefully decorated. It's the nicest place I'v stayed in so far at the Whaler,and the bed was like sleeping on a cloud. I hope to return next year if possible.

                        My husband and I just came back from Hawaii and stayed at Jim's Condo from 5/11-5/15. This was our very first time booking a condo through VBRO and staying at the Whaler. We've stayed at the Westin and Sheraton prior, but I wanted to try living in more of a condo setting than hotel this time around. I was very hesitant about the reservation initially but Jim was very reassuring. He is quick to respond to us from booking the reservation with him and reassuring us that we would be happy with his place. We were really pleased and had a great time. Sat out on the balcony a couple of mornings to have breakfast. The view of the ocean from Jim's Condo is better than the picture depicts. You will not be disappointed. Jim had a lot of amenities like beach chair, umbrellas, etc. which we were able to use, but then I found out that we could rent a cabana on the beach all day for $40 and that was great too. Literally walked over to the Whaler Village right next door for lunch and dinner and Front street was just down the road. Jim called me on the last day to make sure we were satisfied. I would recommend Jim's place to anyone. We had a great time. Thanks for sharing your home with us Jim!

                        This property is exactly as listed, and more. We were impressed by how clean, new, and beautiful everything was. All upgrades were high-end, and the bathroom was awesome! The murphy bed was very comfortable! Jim was amazing to work with. He answered all my questions, and he provided some extras: beach chairs, a large umbrella, a snorkel set, and a wave board. I was worried about space in a bachelor suite, but I needed have worried. There is plenty of room in the condo, and there is a large storage room off the main area for all the suitcases and to hang clothes. The area of the beach was amazing. The beach is pristine, and it's a short walk to black rock for excellent snorkeling. Our travel companions saw an octopus, sea turtles, and a moray eel during their snorkle trip one day. From our balcony, we watched whales breach completely out of the water, and we even watched a school of dolphins frolic in the surf just meters from shore. If you want to get closer, there are plenty of charters with different ocean experiences. The mall next door has mainly jewelry and clothes, and it's very high-end (i.e. expensive). There are a few general shops there for everyday needs, but generally it's boutique. Within steps from the condo, you'll find both fast food (Subway) and dining room food, at various prices. I stopped at Costco to pick up a bunch of groceries when I arrived, and we were able to make breakfast and lunch at home. The fridge had a large assortment of condiments, so check there first before buying. This was our first trip to Hawaii. My husband and I, and our 7-year old twin girls stayed together in this unit, and we were perfectly comfortable. I highly recommend this property.

                        Recommended for: Age 55+, adventure seekers, romantic getaway, families with young children, sightseeing.
