Very Nice Condo
"With the exception of a small snafu upon arrival (condo wasn't ready, but owner was reachable and corrected quickly), we had a great 4 nights there. It was very spacious for the three of us (elderly mother, my sister and me), and very comfortable. My Suster slept on the very comfortable sofa bed(good mattress) and my other and I shared the large King bed in the bedroom. The condo was equipped with everything we needed for the beach(umbrella, chairs, etc). In the kitchen there were no coffee filters, which made coffee making a challenge but coffee was provided to get us started. The only other thing I noted was that time on the lanai was a bit less enjoyable in that the building next door's huge property-air conditioning unit is a constant noise that detracts from the sound of the waves in the distance. We got used to it, but it did detract from the peace a bit. The Whaler property is very nice and well located on Kaanapali Beach, with nice beach right in front, as well as beach walk, and restaurants are close."

"We just spent 9 days in our favorite vacation condo on Maui. We have been coming here for quite a few years & you will not find a nicer place to visit. Being here is the closest to being in our own home. Norm & Mary make this condo an absolute great place to stay. Everything is just as you would hope it to be. We will be back again.
Thanks, Howard & Barbara"

"My husband and I enjoyed a week at The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach in Maui in a beautiful and comfortable studio with a full kitchen and a fabulous view, great ocean breezes, sounds of crashing waves every night. If and when we return we'd sign up for this place again. We enjoyed breakfast on the lanai, the pool, jacuzzi, and, of course, the beach! Easy access to underground parking, lovely walks on the Kaanapali path, dinner at the Hula Grill, the Lahaina Grill, Seahouse, Merriman's, Kaanapali Hotel for the Magic Show, and day trips to Napili, Kapalua, Lahaina, with snorkling at Black Rock and Kapalua Bay. Overall a great place to stay for a relaxing vacation. Never needed the air conditioner, ocean breezes at night were perfect! Thanks to the owners!"

"Having stayed on Ka'anapali before, I knew what to expect. This was my first time at The Whaler and all I can say about 1056 is WOW. The pictures don't do it justice. You can lay in bed and have that fantastic view. The location to everything was perfect. Walk right down stairs to load on the catamarans was perfect. Whalers Village is right there and I found the short cut to the ABC store too. Everything you would need. We took advantage of the chairs and boogie board and I grilled two nights as well. We loved the washer and dryer in the condo. I could live there... Bet your hat the next trip I will look to book this exact condo."
