  • Very Nice Condo in Perfect Location

    "My wife and I usually don't have a problem finding things to be critical about when we vacation but we had a hard time finding anything wrong when we stayed in this Whaler unit. The pictures portray the unit perfectly so we had no surprises. The unit is very spacious and well appointed. The kitchen came in handy as did the 2nd bathroom. Also a plus was the washer/dryer in the room. That was a pleasant surprise for us. The lanai is huge with nice furniture. The ocean view is fantastic. I saw in a previous review that there was no toaster; there was one when we stayed. The Whaler is in a perfect location for what we wanted: to be on the beach and near Black Rock and Whalers Village. All were within seconds to minutes. Unbelievable! Outside of our trip to Hana, we rarely ventured away from the area. We enjoyed the beach, Whalers Village, Black Rock, and our unit that much. My wife really wanted to stay at the Sheraton so we would be close to Black Rock. However, I wanted to be in a condo. I took a chance and went against her wishes .... and it paid off big time! She loved it!! I should point out that the Whaler has a fairly small and simple pool, compared to other hotels along that segment of the beach, but we knew that from the pictures. The bed was a little too soft for my wife and I because of our back issues. However, I want to be clear that there is nothing wrong with the bed; it seemed to be a nice bed ... just too soft for our very sensitive backs. We have this problem with most places we stay. I don't consider the Whaler or this unit to fall under a "luxurious" category as say a Hyatt, or Marriott. However, you will probably need to pay 2-3 times of what this unit costs to stay there. My wife and I both were EXTREMELY pleased with this unit and the Whaler as a whole. We hope to have another opportunity to stay here again for our next trip to Maui. Also, the owner is very kind and easy to work with. Thanks, Tripta!!!!"

  • Nice condo, great place to stay

    "My wife and I have been to Maui several times. The Eldorado is our favorite home away from home. The condo is newly remodeled. Clean and has everything you could ask for. It's all there. Linda-Lee is good to work with and wants your stay to be memorable. We would definitely return to this condo. Close to the beach and an easy walk to Whaler's village."

  • Excellent stay

    "This review is long overdue… We stayed here in September 2014 and without a doubt this deserves each one of its five stars. We were travelling with our one year-old so we had a lot of time to admire the unit, which was immaculate and has a very open feel. The living room is quite large and very comfortable, the kitchen has been nicely renovated, the bedroom is a good size (easily fit a crib, suitcases and there is loads of storage space). Then there is the large lanai, which expands from living room to bedroom and needless to say was spectacular. We spent hours on the lanai eating, reading, and admiring the surrounding views of mountains, courtyard, and the beach/ocean. Sleeping with the doors open was great as you can clearly hear the waves crashing on the beach, but when needed the AC was also brilliant. It was very easy to communicate with the owner and arrange the booking. As for the Whaler itself, it is a nice setups. First of all you don’t have to “meet up” with an owner or management company to get inside the unit, once you arrive everything is done through the front desk (room keys, parking, towels, pool access, etc.). The pool was nice (though deep with a toddler) and we enjoyed feeding the coy fish every morning at 8:15 (food provided by the Whaler). Location is excellent, direct beach access, quick stroll to black rock for snorkeling or to Whalers Village for shopping – a good walking location in general. Finally… everyone we met at the Whaler was really friendly. I could write a lot more about both the unit and the Whaler, but I think that sums it up. Can’t wait to return! Thanks again for renting this excellent unit."

  • Spectacular Christmas Vacation

    "Patty and Rick's condo was the perfect location for our first trip to Maui. The view from the lanai is amazing. We were able to drink our morning coffee while listening to the ocean and watching whales surface. The unit was stocked with all the beach gear we needed. We had a wonderful Christmas on Maui and the comforts of their unit at Honua Kai made the trip. We will definitely be making a return trip in the future."
