Recent The Whaler reviews
"We have been to Maui 6 times, the last 3 trips we have stayed at the Whaler and our last trip stay we stayed in 1118. This by far was the best studio we have stayed at since we have been at the Whaler. We are planning to return in March 2016. The Studio is in a great location to view Black Rock, whale watching (in season) from the lanai and enjoyed meals and cocktails, Whalers Village has excellent shopping, entertainment and restaurants and Lahaina is close (by car) for more superb restaurants and activities. We walked every morning and relaxed on one of the most beautiful beaches. Black Rock is within walking distance for snorkeling (state water park). The owners of 1118 has maintained and updated the suite very nicely. We can tell that they take great pride in 1118. There are grills, a spa and a very nice pool at the Whaler. Can't say more except we LOVED IT and we ARE coming back. ALOHA"

No better place on Kaanapali Beach - top quality condo with amazing view!
"Not sure where to start since there are so many wonderful things to say about this condo and the location. The grounds are impeccable, the staff is super helpful, the pool and hot tub are awesome, the beach is beautiful and only a step away. The view of the ocean from the balcony is perfect and we watched whales from there each morning while enjoying our coffee. We rented an umbrella and took in the beach every day and swam in the crystal clear blue water. Dinner at Leilani's or Hula Grill is easy but even better was cooking our own meals in the kitchen and on the gas grill that's ocean side. Booking was super easy with Roger via email and he was easy to call to answer a question. When we come back to Maui, there is absolutely NO question that we will stay here again. Thanks so much, Roger!!!

"In the past five years, this was our fourth visit to Maui, second time staying at the Whaler and the first in Tripta's condo. We consider ourselves very cost conscious vacationers and the value of the view and location to the cost was excellent. The condo is very well kept and worked perfectly for us. Even with only two of us in the condo it was nice to have two bathrooms with showers to get ready in the morning or for dinner. Everything in the condo was in perfect working condition and having Netflix was a nice bonus for us. Also, the washer and dryer was very nice to have. Next time we will pack a little lighter. Booking with Tripta was easy and was nice to be able to use a credit card. We hope to become regulars here for our future trips to Maui.
Recommendations – Check the weather before venturing to Haleakala or going on the road to Hana. This was the first time we took this into consideration and it made the trips very enjoyable. Pay the extra money to enjoy a meal at Mama’s Fish House near Paia. Kimo’s in Lahaina was great, probably our second best meal after Mama’s. Each year we eat at Leilani’s and Hula Grill at Whaler Village and Leilani’s is always is a little better in both food and service. Ate that Duke’s for the first time and the food was good and the walk to the beach afterwards for sunset was amazing. Lahaina Fish Company in Lahaina was average but was wouldn’t go again. For fish taco’s we though Coconuts in Kihei was the best until we tried Maalaea General Store behind the Maui Ocean Center. They had the best fish tacos by far. Coconuts is good fast food and worth the visit. Very friendly people."

"We have been coming to the Whalers off and on for the past 25 years and simply never found a unit comparable to this. It has been beautifully updated, fabulously well equipped kitchen, beautiful art, comfortable bed, top quality linens, etc. etc. The owner has foreseen and provided for every possible need. We feel privileged to have been here! Of course, Kaanapali speaks for itself as far as location is concerned, the best on the island!"
