Recent The Whaler reviews

  • Picture Perfect

    "We have been traveling to Maui every other year since 2006. This is our 4th rental at the Whaler. This condo is the best yet. The owner was amazing to work with. The management company that he uses is also very pleasant. The condo view CANNOT be beat-it is a corner unit! We are a 50ish couple spending 2 weeks in Maui and this was our rental for the first week. Our second week was at the Westin Villas North. We preferred this Whaler condo for several reasons. First, 2 baths work very well for us-easier and quicker to get ready every day (I like a bath at night so bathtub a plus); second, close to Whaler village- we really enjoyed the music from the restaurant next door of the evenings and easy walk to shop; third, close to the golf course-we are golfers and golfed every day at either Kaanapali or Kapalua ; fourth-did I mention the view?--wonderful for champagne breakfast every day; fifth-not far from the grocery store; sixth-the beach is right below you-no maze to get direct from your condo to the beach-just get out there early and rent your cabanna for the day and sand is the best at the Whaler; seventh-well stocked kitchen - all the necessary small appliances, dishes and utensils and nice wine glasses; eighth-comfortable king size bed; ninth-everything worked; and finally tenth - check in/check out was pleasant and refund of security deposit from management company was timely. I am extremely detail oriented and this condo met my expectations. Sunsets are beautiful from the lanai. The 7th floor is high enough that people walking below in front of the Whaler do not bother you. There is not a washer/dryer in this unit and that would be the only thing I would add to it. I would definitely rent this until again if available. The photos listed are accurate and the property was clean and well maintained. Hula Grill is our favorite restaurant but also like Lelani's on the Beach and Maui Fish and Pasta all in Whaler Village; also this year ate at the Sea House at Napili and attended Slack Key Concert and recommend both-not for kids though. Thanks again for sharing your condo with us!"

  • Didn't Want to Leave!

    "My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this wonderful condo. The resort is right on the beach and a short walk to great snorkeling. We walked to the nearby restaurants for "Aloha Hour" and watched many sunsets along the Kaanapali Beachwalk. We loved that we could walk to everything -- made it a very relaxing vacation. We did use the beachfront BBQ to make dinner a couple of nights. The condo was clean and had everything we needed. Felt very much at home -- didn't want to leave!"

  • Great location, comfortable and affordable!

    "This condo is in a great location, on a great beach, close to Whalers village shops and cruise locations. Lanai has a good water view. Facility is well run and updated. The master bed is very comfortable, a big consideration for me. They even have a memory foam topper for the sleeper couch. Roomy, well stocked. Washer /dryer in unit for convenience. Furniture in good condition. Owners,responsive. On site management for peace of mind. Beach towels provided by resort. Would definitely stay in this unit again. Only improvement suggestion- more study umbrellas for renter use. We ended up buying a big sport umbrella and leaving in it in the unit, as the cheap ones will not hold up to the wind on the beach."

  • Best Location on Kaanapali Beach!

    "My husband and our two teenage children spent the week here at this condo. Condo was in the perfect central location that was right next to Black Rock for snorkeling, excellent restaurants, shopping at Whaler's Village and just a few steps from the beach. This unit had a wonderful view on the spacious lanai and was so convenient for walking down the stairs to the beach. Snorkel gear, cooler and beach chairs were there for our convenience. Unit was a little dated, but was very clean and spacious with two bathrooms and washer/dryer. No issues with noise in the hallways or out by BBQ area. Beach area was just beautiful. We also enjoyed daily walks down the pathway that bordered the beach and other hotel properties. Snorkeling at Black Rock was excellent.....lots of fish and some turtles. Whaler's Realty and unit owner were very pleasant to deal with. Would highly recommend this condo unit as I would stay here again in a heartbeat!"
