Recent The Whaler reviews
Great ground floor condo!
"Just returned from our Hawaii vacation in this great unit. This was our 2nd time staying In Cindys unit. She returns phone calls and emails back promptly so its easy to book. We love having a ground floor for the kids. Nice to have a cocktail or dinner on the Lanai. The kids enjoy the Koi pond for fish feeding at 8:30am every morning. The kitchen is great with the island, and the murphy bed in the living room provides extra sleeping area (and its comfy!)
Having a 2yr old who naps, it was nice to have a door to close off the bedroom from the bathroom/vanity area so others could still use it. Also there was two beach chairs, sand toys and snorkel masks on the patio when we arrived so that was nice to not have to rent them. Love that we are in walking distance to Whalers village and the boardwalk connecting the other hotels.
We will definitely be back!
Thank you Cindy!"

"The condo is in a great spot on Kaanapali. We could walk most places. There are grocery stores very close by to save on breakfast and lunches. Nice restaurants on the beach within walking distance. The beach was gorgeous and not too crowded. Nice tennis courts.
The actual condo needs some updating and deep cleaning but it was fine. The view is awesome it gets 5 stars. There was a rainbow most of the days we stayed. The king bed was very comfortable. We slept great.
The area has a lot to offer. We never got bored between tennis, the gym, beach, pool, shopping, sidewalk along the beach, and many other activities. I would stay in Kaanapali again and at the Whaler.
The rental process was simple and the owner was nice and easy to deal with."

"First time to Maui, and we will definately be coming back. Holy sea shells did we have a good time! I don't know if it's like this on the rest of the island, but there was just so much to do in such close proximity to the resort. We went golfing, jet skiing, took a sunset and snorkeling cruise, went to a half dozen different restaurants, and even got some good shopping in the local outdoor mall. All of it was within walking distance, though, admittedly, we did drive to the golf course. The resort and unit were equally impressive. The staff at the resort were friendly, and were eager to help us whether we asked where the workout facility was or the best local restaurant to try. The condo itself was very well taken care of. Alot of love has gone into decorating the place with a Hawaiian motif, and we definitely dug that. It's very spacious inside for a one bedroom place. The two TV's were like new, and we appreciated having the extra channels to surf when we weren't out and about. The kitchen met all our needs. We didn't feel we were missing out on any of the comforts of home. I never got over the view from the lanai. It's what we drew us to this place initially. Just breathtaking. I would definitely stay here again."

"My Stay at the Whaler was the very best ever. The unit is attractively decorated, very comfortable, clean and quiet. The super large Lanai is great for looking out at the ocean and simply relaxing or visiting with friends. The Whaler being located on Kaanapali Beach is wonderful, great Whale Watching when the Whales are In Hawaii. There is no need to go anywhere else there are many excellent restaurants on Kaanapali and the Whaler has a great outdoor Barbeque Area where people gather, visit and cook. The pool has plenty of lawn chairs for sunbathing and a friendly staff to help with your needs."
