                                                                All we can say is WOW!! We were fortunate to stay at this dream rental April 3-10, 2018. It was perfect for my 4 children, my spouse and I. The property was clean when we arrived and had everything we needed. It has beautiful furnishings and you can tell this place is kept up. The property management company is very professional. I had to contact them while I was there because I found a damaged closet door in the guest room. They were pleasant to deal with and instructed me how to report my finding. We also enjoyed how they really have there stuff together. When you rent their condo, they give you a link that has tons of information about the check in/out process, wifi, etc. For them to provide us with all this information just made everything easy. We loved the closet that offered beach necessities like beach chairs, sand toys, and beach cooler bag. The location of the property was awesome! We loved our oceanfront view! Having coffee out on the lanai was the best!! We could head out to the beautiful beach as it was probably about 80-90 feet from the condo, which made it easy when we needed to take a break from the sun and get lunch. This condo is also just steps away from the BBQ area if you feel like grilling up your own dinner and about a 5 minute walk to restaurants at the Whaler's Village. The pool area is about a 30 second walk. The grass area off the side of the condo was a bonus for the kids as they could have somewhere to play. We were very impressed with the upkeep at The Whaler. Every single day that we were there we could see staff on top of just keeping up the premises. They were all very nice and helpful. We really had a fabulous time and can't wait to visit again!! We love this condo!!! Thank you Hawaii Life for offering such a wonderful place, we will be back!!

                                                                Our Family vacation was a huge success and the Condo was exactly what we were looking for. This two bedroom condo was well appointed and had everything you'd need for your vacation stay. It was really like home away from home. The views were AMAZING. Black Rock and the beautiful beach of Kaanapali. Being on the first floor we could walk right out to the beach, pool or grilling area. There are restaurants and shopping within walking distance and the grounds were immaculate. Check in was easy and the staff are outstanding. This condo will not disappoint.

AC didn't work correctly, servicemen had to come out 5 days. The master bath floor was dirty upon arrival and there was no soap. We had to buy paper towels and toilet paper after 7 days. The floor beneath the w/d is rotten and so it doesn't sit level. TV Internet out for 24 hours. Called people we rented from, disconnected, called back put on hold for over ten min. emailed. no response.

                                                                Aloha Ron and Julia, we're surprised and disappointed in reading your review, we feel that there are several inaccuracies noted here. We were never notified of any issues during your stay and we make it very clear to all of our guests that if there is any sort of inconvenience to please let us know and we will take care of quickly and thoroughly. Our entire body of work across our reviews for all of our properties is a testament to this. We reached out to you a couple days after arrival to see how you were enjoying Maui and if there was anything we could do to make your stay more comfortable, we did not receive any reply from you. After doing some research, we have no record of your call to the Hawaii Life Vacations main 800 number, as all the calls are logged. It is clearly stated that if you have any issues during your stay to contact either Megan or myself with both of our numbers listed online as well as the home book located in the property. Our team is extremely responsive to any sort of issue that may arise as well as lending a helping hand for providing recommendations or whatever else our guests need. All properties are visually expected prior to check in and our cleaners do a fabulous job. Truthfully, we can't catch everything but your statements are inconsistent with the way that our properties are represented and if there was any issue, we would have happily taken care of it as well as done something nice for you for the inconvenience. We provide our guests with a large starter pack of 3 rolls of toilet paper per bathroom, medium bottle of hand soap and 3 rolls of paper towels that most guests do not use all of during their vacation. Again, we would've been happy to provide more if we were asked- as we have done this with a couple of our guests who needed/wanted a few extra things. We take great pride in treating our guests the way we'd want our own family members treated on vacation. We invite any of our potential guests who are skeptical to read the hundreds of 5 Star raving reviews that we exclusively manage across our entire Hawaii Life Vacations Portfolio here in Kaanapali.

                                                                Loved that this is a 1st floor sits high enough for great ocean and sunset views and able your able to walk out of the patio and down to the Pool, BBQ or beach. We cooked several meals there and it was a pleasure to find good quality cooking equipment, all kind of spices and just about every utensil I would find in my own kitchen. Also supplied us with Beach towels, chairs, beach cooler bag and so many things that usually I end up buying my past trips to Maui. Absolutely loved this place and hope to stay there again. Mahalo
