  • Absolutely Beautiful!

    "My family of 4 stayed in this beautiful unit in April. We were blown away as soon as we opened the door. This was the first time we've ever stayed in a condo and were so glad we did. The extra room and all the comforts of home really made us feel welcome. The location of the room and complex was better than I expected. We took the stairs down to the beach and I could not believe how close we were to the sand. Made it so much easier with a little one in tow. I made it a point to sit out on the lanai each morning before anyone else was awake to enjoy a cup of coffee and the wonderful sounds of the waves. We even slept with the door open a few nights to hear the waves. It was absolutely amazing! The owner was a pleasure to deal with and was very responsive to our questions. We can't wait to come back to Maui and when we do, we hope to stay here again."

  • Loved it!!

    "We loved everything about our trip and this unit. The owners were wonderful to work with and the unit is beautiful! It was clean and well kept, and had everything we needed. There is a grocery store right across the street which was wonderful and we often ate at Dukes. The resort is beautiful and the beach was wonderful. We can't wait until we have enough airline miles to return and we would definitely rent this unit again! Thanks so much! We will never forget the incredible memories we made on our trip!"

  • Second time is a charm

    "This was our 2nd time in this studio and will not be our last. The Whaler is a wonderful place to stay. The entire property is awesome. The garden on the property is beautiful, the pool is right there and not overly crowded, the staff shows the true Aloha spirit. You are on the best beach on Maui and within walking distance of a fast food court, numerous restaurants and bars, shopping, very good restaurants, and the Whaler's museum. We parked the rental car and took it out to go to Lahaina or Kapalua, all a short drive away. The condo feels like home to us. On the way to it, stop at Safeway or Costco and load up on groceries. The full sized fridge came in handy when we packed drinks or sandwiches for the beach and/or pool. (There are a few coolers in the unit.) There is an ice maker in the freezer and an icee for the cooler too! Very easy to have breakfast in the condo, pack a lunch and even cook dinner either in the unit or on the many outdoor barbeque grills. Going to the beach? No need to rent a cabana as there are many beach chairs and a good beach umbrella in the condo for you to use. If you don't do the sand thing, head to the private pool by 8am and grab a chair or pool cabana. Get there early! You can save a chair or cabana for 30 minutes. One of us would go down and grab a spot, then come back up to the condo. If you need a restroom by the pool, there is easy access to one near the gym at the basement level. The king sized bed in this unit is so comfortable, you will sleep like a baby. While we were there, the entire building's cable got upgraded to HD, so the TV picture got so much better. This unit has all the comforts of home. The lanai view is spectacular. You get to see Black Rock and the evening Cliff Dive ceremony right from the lanai. You get to watch the rainbows form on the West Maui Mountains, see the catamarans sail towards the north shore of Maui, watch the weather change on Molaka'i, and just watch the waves on Kaanapali Beach. Very relaxing, very comfortable, highly recommendable! One of our favorite and highly recommendable snorkel or sunset cruises is on the Gemini catamaran, which you can book on-line or at their convenient booth in front of the Westin, which is just past Leilani's restaurant. Gemini has the best captain and crew. Bob is a true pleasure to work with. Reserving through him is a piece of cake! Overall, this unit is great. The Whaler id perfect. We call it our home on Maui!"
