......Just a few comments from our happy guests:

- 'We are Whaler vacation 'regulars' and this is, by far, the nicest unit we have stayed in. We're booking our next vacation reservation for this unit before we leave for home.'

- 'Our most memorable Hawaiian vacation. We'll be back to the Whaler on future trips, and we'll ask for your unit every time.'

- 'We loved the DVD movie collection for entertainment after dinner.'

- 'Your kitchen is amazing. I took photos for ideas for my own upcoming kitchen remodel.'

Seeking a premium luxury condo for a special vacation . . . . . WHALER UNIT 312, located on the more comfortable and quiet (North) side on the third floor of Tower 1, is a garden and ocean view, five-room suite of luxury accommodation rooms in The Whaler on Ka'anapali Beach, the 'Grand Lady' of resort condominiums centrally located on the beach rated by many travel magazines as the best beach on Planet Earth . . . Ka'anapali Beach, Maui.

For that special Hawaiian vacation, WHALER UNIT 312 is spectacular and has recently completed a half-year full renovation for our guests. It is a 5-STAR resort apartment in every respect. Newly appointed with an updated kitchen, featuring G.E. Cafe and SubZero appliances and beautiful granite counter tops. The gourmet kitchen and both luxury baths are updated with extensive use of elegant mable tiles and best quality cabinets and fixtures. The apartment has a convenient wine chiller-refrigerator and cabinet bar for entertaining. The master bath features a designer marble-tiled 'shower chamber' with opposing 'his and hers' Grohe shower heads and controls.

Built of steel-reinforced concrete walls, ceilings and flooring, the towers of The Whaler are structurally superior and measurably more quiet than many of the surrounding resorts. As an added measure to further assure guest privacy and satisfaction, extensive use of the newest high-tech soundproofing materials was installed within the bath walls and layered on all water pipes during the recent remodel of the apartment to minimize audible water pipe sound and any other noise from transferring into Unit 312 from surrounding apartments. Unit 312 is a very quiet suite of rooms -- restful enjoyment of the apartment is assured.

Unit 312 is a comfortable one master bedroom suite (extra sleeping accommodations by use of the convertible sofa), with two elegant baths, this suite of rooms has a fabulous view of the beach and beachwalk and the Pacific Ocean beyond, mystical Black Rock (a sacred Hawaiian volcanic rock feature of Ka'anapali Beach), and spectacular, picture-perfect Maui sunsets directly from our lanai. The comfort, convenience and decor panache of Unit 312 does not disappoint.

Furnishings are luxury quality throughout, including several Hawaiian heirloom pieces made of rare koa wood. Unit 312 also contains a museum-quality Polynesian art and artifact collection for guest enjoyment. Available for guest use are two flat screen TVs with DVD players and home theatre sound system with a 70+ DVD feature film collection with favorite movies of past Oscar award performances, action, adventure, history, westerns, fantasy, and favorite animation features for the children for fun evenings of nightly 'family film festivals' and on those rainy days when the kids can't play outside.

Possibly the best luxury quality accommodations that The Whaler on Ka'anapali Beach has to offer . . . Unit 312 will make your Maui vacation a joy to remember.

About Carol Hunt

I am a retired high school teacher. My husband is a forensic accountant and retiree from PriceWaterhouseCoopers. We raised 3 children and have 3 grandchildren. Our full-time home is in Palos Verdes (Los Angeles area).

Carol Hunt purchased this condo in 2001

Why Carol Hunt chose West Maui

Jim and I bought in Hawaii because we love Hawaii (my husband was born here, but moved to California when he was 1). We spent our honeymoon in Hawaii and lived on Oahu for 2 years when we were young. We bought at The Whaler because we had stayed here on a vacation and loved both the convenient location and the great beach. Sitting in the living room, watching Black Rock and listening to the sounds of the ocean is unbeatable!

What makes this condo unique

Outstanding location, shady (not hot) lanai with a great view of Black Rock and the ocean. Being on the 3rd floor, we are high enough for a good view and privacy yet are not uncomfortably high. Our condo has upscale appliances, a fully furnished kitchen, a unique master bath with 2 showers and touches of Hawaiiana throughout (see our pictures).

The Whaler.

  • 4 of 5

Great views and nice amenities. No restaurant on property but we had a full kitchen. The pool is rather small but the ocean is just feet away, and travels this far to swim in a pool anyway?

Fantastic condo

  • 5 of 5

Lovely condo with an amazing view of the beach and Black Rock. Beautifully decorated and comfortable. The kitchen is gorgeous with everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable. An added bonus was the washer and dryer in the condo. Mahalo Carol for allowing us to rent from you.

Perfect Location and amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful condo for 4 nights over Mother's Day weekend. The condo was in amazing condition and had absolutely everything we needed. I loved cooking in the remodeled kitchen. Every tool you need is provided. The best part has to be hands down the view. It is so peaceful and you get a perfect view of the ocean and the mountainside. Thank you for providing such a wonderful vacation spot. We will return.

Vacation to Remember

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the Whaler and Condo #312 was perfect. We found that Kaanapali Beach was a convenient location on Maui with a nice beach. The resort faces west and only the ocean front rooms face the afternoon sun. The resort is meticulously maintained and has a nice pool, lots of lounge chairs, free coffee and lemonade at the pool and in the lobby all day, and friendly, helpful employees. There is a lovely bar-be-cue area with tables and chairs for socializing and dining. There is a an exercise room in Tower 1 with good equipment. The resort is next to Whaler Village which has two good restaurants, Leilani's and the Hula Grill. Whaler Village also has a number of brand name shops and an ABC store for light shopping and liquor,.

Condo #312 is In Tower 1 and is spacious and comfortable. It is attractively decorated, has a gourmet kitchen, 2 quality bathrooms, and a wonderfully comfortable king size bed. The balcony/lanai is very large and has a dining table and 4 chairs as well as 2 chaise lounges. We ate our breakfast every morning on the lanai with a view of the ocean. We never had to deal with sun in our face either morning or evening which we loved. There are beach chairs, umbrellas, and a Boogie board for the use of guests. Carol was lovely to work with and our vacation to Maui will be one to remember.
