"My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Whaler. Ethel's place was the perfect center for Maui vacation operations. The lanai was as advertised... Just beautiful. The sunsets were astounding. We enjoyed all of our in house meals out there. The grilling area was always super clean and a great place to share stories with other residents as you put the finishing touches on dinner. The unit itself is a great studio space that's outfitted with everything you'd think you would ever need and more. The bed was super comfy. The ice maker kept up with our Mai Tai consumption. We found the location of The Whaler on Kaanapali perfect for us. We hope to be back soon. Thank you Ethel!"

"We have stayed here with our two children (9 & 12) numerous times. The resort and beach are absolutely amazing. Everything you need is right at the resort, walking distance or the shuttle will drive you to Lahaina or Whalers village. We can't wait to go back next year!!"

"Just returned from 11 days in Maui at this wonderful condo. This condo and location on Kaanapali beach was the perfect spot. Condo modern with everything you need in a renovated kitchen and very large bath area with separate shower and toilet and lots of closet space. Bedroom was large with 2 queen beds. Very difficult to find 1 bedroom accommodations with 2 beds. Perfect for a family without having to upgrade to a 2 bedroom, and extra cost. We had 2 teenagers. Not every unit in this resort are renovated.
The very large lanai was the icing on the cake. Only the 2nd floor units have them In the tower. All other units have narrow lanais. We enjoyed breakfast every morning on the lanai with an amazing view of the ocean and whales. The sunsets from the lanai were spectacular. Condo was cleaned every day. Resort is beautifully maintained and staff very warm, welcoming and helpful. The onsite tourism staff were so great- Troy helped us several times and his recomendatuons for excursions were honest and perfect.
This is not a large luxury resort like just about every other on Kaanapali beach (Marriott, Westin, Alii, Whaler), which is why we loved it. It was quiet and so much less busy, very well maintained, lots of beautful foliage, 2 pools. We met a couple of condo owners in the pool and other guests very friendly. Felt just like home!
There is a quaint restaurant on the property which is very reasonably priced compared to any other with awesome ocean views 20 ft. from beach, good food and selection. No wonder it was packed every night. Tuesday night is 2 for 1 pasta - very good and no skimping on quantities.
The 2 shuffleboards got lots of use by us and many other guests. The beach was great and not busy like the main Kaanapali beach.
It s a short 15 min walk to the main strip of Kaanapali beach on a beachfront boardwalk that goes for severals miles In both directions. There is a free trolley shuttle to Whalers village every 30 mins. and the drivers were awesome they were so friendly and helpful, even stopped to pick us up between stops when we were late.
The owners of this unit made it very easy to rent with no contract and provided information about the condo and surrounding area.
We checked out almost every resort along Kaanapali beach while there including a timeshare. We concluded this resort and location was hands down the best choice we could have made and would not consider stayng anywhere else again."

"I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay while on vacation. Being on the ground floor made everything super convenient. We could walk straight out the back door to the beach or pool and the condo had wonderful amenities that really made it feel like a home away from home. The property is within walking distance (less than 3 miles) of some great places, such as Whaler's Village, different restaurants, and excellent beach locations. Everything about our stay was easy and it helped make our vacation fantastic!"
