"Absolutely loved the property. We have stayed here before and wouldn't change it for anything. The stunning panoramic view of the ocean. Great sunset moments unlike any other condo has to offer. Spacious and beautifully decorated. We really enjoyed the shopping and activities within walking distance of the condo. Look no further than this condo when choosing a place to stay on Maui. Peter is very easy and a pleasure to work with."

"We recently stayed here with our adult sons and daughter-in-law. We loved the location and view from this unit. It was spacious and the beds were very comfortable. Even the Aerobed that my youngest son slept on in the living room was comfortable. It was so nice to be able to sit on the lanai comfortably and enjoy the view and the whales frolicking in the ocean. The barbeques on site were always clean and it was great to have a "Grill Master" to offer opinions and help with the grilling. The pools were beautiful and never crowded. Great to be able to go for long walks on the beach and have some really great restaurants and shopping only steps away. We did find a few things that needed some TLC in the unit such as towel racks that were loose and the table on the lanai was quite wobbly. Carpets are starting to show their age. The kitchen was well stocked except for spoons (3 teaspoons and 3 tablespoons). We still very much enjoyed our time at Kaanapali Alii and would stay here again."

"I can't say enough good about The Whaler. The staff was friendly and helpful, the grounds were spotless, the pool was wonderful. This unit had fantastic views. The bathrooms and the kitchen has been re-done with granite and very nice cabinetry. But, if you are going to re-do things, why not re-do everything? The mattress was topped with a very thick memory foam pad. Probably 4 inches thick. They are known for holding heat and this one did not disappoint. It was so awfully hot that we had to turn the thermostat waaaay down. Why not just invest in a new mattress? By morning, the sheet had snapped into the foam and flipped it up at the corner. Every single morning. The kitchen had a nice layout. There was a total of two teaspoons, a few forks, lots of butter knives and some serving ware. The pots and pans looked worse than something you would purchase at a thrift shop. I was afraid to use some of it, it was that bad. The "non-stick" was peeling off. There was one (1) iced tea (tall) glass, two cracked blue plastic cups and two green plastic cups. Tons of wine glasses and margarita glasses. A bit much really. Honestly, I could have just dealt with this if I didn't have anything to compare it to, but my sister stayed in unit 1101. It was also re-done, much better. Every kitchen gadget known to man and all in fine shape. Lot's of glasses and much nicer plastic cups. And a larger quantity of all. Oh, and they actually had silverware that matched. In my opinion, these are inexpensive fixes that would have made this unit a 5 star. The washer and dryer was a really nice thing to have in the unit. But I am not sure why periodic ceiling tiles were pushed up for us to look at the nastiness above. There was a cooler and beach equipment. That was nice to have and appreciated. My communication with the owner was overall ok. After sending the deposit and the check being cashed I got an e-mail asking if I was still interested in renting the unit. To say that this threw me and kept me uneasy right up to the time we checked in is an understatement.
Will I come back to Maui again? Probably. Will I stay at the Whaler? Probably. Would I rent this unit? Probably not. I would have been willing to pay a little more to have all of the little annoyances taken care of. Overall, we had a wonderful vacation."
