Recent The Whaler reviews

  • Family Vacation Made Perfect

    "This is our 7th trip to Maui (our first trip was on our honeymoon and have brought our children on the next 6 trips). This is our 4th stay at The Whaler and our first experience renting through VRBO. We wanted to secure the perfect unit for our family trip and it was everything we had hoped for. The description and photos above do not do the unit justice. The owner has thought of everything and more to ensure all of our needs were met. We enjoyed breakfast on the lanai every morning and loved watching the sunset and listening to the music from Hula Grill in the evenings. We will be back forsure and even know the date for our next trip! We hope to secure this unit again for our next trip!"

  • Grateful travelers!

    "My husband and I have stayed at the Whaler for thirty plus years and have actually owned a studio time interval for the past eight, so we are very familiar with the various accommodations there. Jim's condo is, without a doubt, one of the most beautifully decorated and has gorgeous views, just as described. When we contacted Jim about availability for a very last minute trip (I'm talking arriving the next day), he very graciously accommodated us, even though it meant that he had to vacate the unit in order to do so. He definitely went out of his way to facilitate the check in process and to show us around and answer any questions we might have about the unit itself. We're looking forward to checking out his other condos when we have extra family members traveling with us in the future. Thanks again, Jim!!"

  • Excellent, modern ground-floor condo facing Black Rock

    "What a wonderful condo! I was hesitant at first to reserve a ground level condo, as I was concerned about the noise of people walking back and forth. But we now would not have it any other way! This condo faces the Black Rock outcropping on the outer side of the complex (you can see people jumping off the cliff…from your couch). We could walk straight out our back patio doors onto the long private lawn and straight out to the beach, the new BBQ area, everything. I underestimated how much of a convenience that would be. No sharing elevators! We always felt secure and undisturbed. The condo itself is fully updated with granite countertops throughout, tiled floor (no carpet), modern kitchen and bathrooms, top of the line appliances and cabinetry, very functional kitchen with everything you could possibly need. The furnishings and the décor is spot on for a beachside resort. There’s tons of functional storage in every room including the bathrooms. This condo is just three or so doors down from the new BBQ area, which was finished mid-way through our stay. Three huge gas grills, large tiled sitting area. The only thing they need to work on is the lighting. There are only two huge flood lights on the palm trees pointed down on the patio that are bright enough to warn passing ships! Need ambient lighting instead. Other than that, this is a great new addition. Hard to find anything wrong with the condo honestly, but if there is anything that could be improved on, it was this—The bedroom dresser smells; I’m certain it’s the type of wood that gives it a bad odor. I tried keeping our clothes in it but eventually had to move everything to the closet or bathroom storage. Just couldn’t hack the smell. Just keep the drawers closed and it’s fine. No big deal since there was plenty of storage anyway. We were never inconvenienced by it. Secondly the maid service supplies very little soap. There was one very small bar in the master bathroom, similar to what you would get in a hotel, which only lasted a day. I bought a couple of bars at the grocery. Again, no big deal. Contact me with any questions you may have."
