About the property

Maui Kaanapali Beach Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-2)

Welcome! Have a seat on my outdoor lanai, perched on the 10th floor of the Whaler Condominiums on Maui’s Kaanapali Beach. This spot brings you a panoramic vantage point for the sparkling sea and beckoning beach in front of you, the lush green mountain range and golf course to your left, and the island of Lanai and the old whaling port of Lahaina in the distance.

These views are the reason I bought this place over 20 years ago and never looked back. Guests love it, too, and tell me they spend hours on the lanai, relaxing in our chairs and watching the changing light, from sunrise to sunset.

At the outdoor dining table on the lanai, sample a Hawaiian pupu (an appetizer plate of local goodies like tempura vegetables and skewers of chicken and fish), and watch the lights of the old Lahaina whaling port glimmer in the distance as the sun sinks into the Pacific.

This is paradise--and one example of what awaits you at Whaler 1063.

Our studio condo with king-sized bed is intimate, comfortable, and keeps everything you need close at hand, including kitchen supplies and a collection of beach goodies like lounge chairs, a beach umbrella, and a picnic cooler.

We also provide a television and DVD player, wireless Internet, an étagère with Hawaiian artifacts and a small library of books. The kitchen and bathroom are newly remodeled.

The Whaler, where the unit is housed, provides many resort-style amenities for an active couple, including direct access to the beach, a heated pool and Jacuzzi, tennis courts, a sauna and exercise facility, a concierge, and ocean-side barbeques for beachfront dining.

And, for adventurers ready to explore, there are dozens of options nearby, including some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving on Maui, helicopter tours, golf courses, ferry, bicycle trips down Haleakala, horseback riding in the upcountry, wineries, luaus, the Ulalena evening theater show, and moonlight dinner cruises leaving from Kaanapali Beach. You won’t want to leave.

As your host, I’m happy to help. Feel free to come to me with questions or for suggestions of Maui’s best activities.

Many of my guests are repeat guests—some of them came here first for their honeymoon and now return year after year for their anniversaries. That says something great about their experiences at my condo, and I think you’ll agree.

I hope you’ll take some time and visit here in paradise. To book your dates, get in touch today by phone, or by clicking the 'Email owner' button at the right—the calendar is filling fast! An additional benefit: No Booking Fee

Guestbook comments from the owner

We visit Maui each year and were delighted to find this studio rental. Bill was a pleasure to work with, made the process easy and the condo had all amenities you could ask for. The location, on the 10th floor, in tower 2 overlooked the Whaler Village and had a nice view of local activity, music and beaches. Beautiful.

It truly is paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was my husband and my second trip to Maui and first time staying at a VRBO/Homeaway property. We were a little nervous that we might miss the hotel amenities that we had our first trip 4 years ago (we stayed at the Hyatt for our honeymoon) but in fact, it was just the opposite. This property had a nicer beach area, on-site rental access to paddleboards, snorkel gear, etc. and amazing restaurants and shopping right next door. The owners are very quick to respond if you have questions and have the place fully stocked with beach chairs, mats, coolers, etc. Also have a hair dryer and curling iron so save yourself the space packing! There is a beautiful pool area and never had an issue getting 2 chairs together - even the covered ones which I thought would be difficult to nab. We definitely plan to come back to Maui and would happily stay at this property again and pack half as much. There is a free washer/dryer on each floor although we did not end up using it. We also had a friend island hop over here to visit us and she was able to park at The Whaler as our guest for free all day. Overall, truly excellent experience. Highly recommended. One last thing - the view is unbeatable. You might think you want to face the ocean but this stunning balcony displayed breathtaking mountain views to the left and beautiful ocean views to the right. I wouldn't change a thing.

Amazing Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This is my husband's and I second time staying at The Whaler in Bill's unit. The unit is clean, maintained, and has every amenity you can think of for your cooking needs. It is great as well because he has beach chairs, umbrellas, and coolers to use at the beach, so there is no need to rent them. The view from his room is amazing (ocean to one side and mountains to the other)! On the weekend during the evening, you can hear the live music playing from the Hula Grill. Bill is great to work with and has great communication. We look forward to our next visit and will stay at Bill's condo again!

Centrally located spacious apartment overlooking beautiful Kaanapali Beach

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just wrapped up our first trip to Maui where we stayed at the Whaler 1063, and I cannot recommend this place highly enough. The place is extremely quiet at night, the beach isn't overly crowded, and the condo comes stocked with everything you need. This includes beach umbrellas, lounge chairs, coolers, an ice maker, anything you can think that you might need for a comfortable stay. The Whaler resort sits along a line of resorts on Kaanapali Beach and faces the mountains, with its rear to the beach. On multiple nights, my wife and I packed a cooler with champagne and a couple of chairs to watch the beautiful sunset. You will not be disappointed by staying here--we fully plan to return!

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 14 wonderful days here and enjoyed it immensely. What you see on Bill's web site is exactly what you will walk into. The unit was well maintained, clean, and hospitable. It has everything you could possibly want. Bill has thought of all the things that make this Condo special for all his guest. I could run down a long list of amenities but I'd just be repeating what other guests reviews have said. The location is perfectly situated close to restaurants, golf, shopping, parasailing, snorkeling and all other kinds of beach activities (All within a very short walk). The views from the lanai are fantastic from waking up to a beautiful sunrise coming over the mountains to a day ending magnificent sunset over the ocean. You will be able to hear music from the Hula Grill and Leilani's from happy hour into the evening, but not to worry the music ends at approximately 9 P.M. You will see catamaran's coming and going for daily activities and evening sunset sails, just too many things to mention them all here.

The whalers staff was friendly and always eager to help. Their facilities are well maintained and things like free towel exchanges for the beach, and pool along with free beverages (non-alcoholic) morning, noon, and night are very nice touches. With parking coming at a premium on Maui the under ground parking garage is also a great part of the property.

Would we stay in Bill's unit again on our next trip to the beautiful island of Maui you bet we will!

Thanks Bill for a great place to stay.

Great unit with beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights in this unit. It is in great shape, clean and well stocked, and had no issues that needed attention during our stay. Bathroom clean and in great condition, shower enclosure especially nice. We appreciated that there were a variety of spices, oil etc leftover from previous visitors that meant we did not need to do a lot of shopping for the small incidentals. Plus beach umbrellas and more. Wifi worked well. We loved having breakfast on the deck in the mornings. Unit is on the 10th floor, high enough so that we did not have any issues with noise from the nearby Whalers Village. The view from the unit takes in a sweeping view of Kaanapali Beach and Lanai. It was especially entertaining to watch the snorkel cruise catamarans land on the beach to pick up passengers! Free washer/dryer nearby next to the elevator was always available when we needed it. Whaler facilities - pool, hot tub, gym, parking, lobby were all in great shape. Owner was easy to work with, responsive on communications, and interested in us enjoying our stay. I recommend this unit!

Checking in at the desk was efficient & speedy. Unit is very comfortable and clean with adequate

kitchen facilities, TV, sleeping arrangements and closet space. Balcony is a wonderful place

to sit & sunbathe, read, eat or watch the whales & boats on the water. Have actually stayed here

several times.
