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.

Here today, gone to Maui

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we pulled up to The Whaler we were greeted with smiles and lei's. The staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating. We passed through the lush green courtyard to Bill's 10th floor unit and were immediately in awe of the view - you can hear the birds chirp as soon as you open the double sliders. The unit was clean and had everything you could possibly need for a Hawaii getaway. We didn't use the pool much, since you are literally on one of the best beaches!! Bill has some beach chairs that came in handy during our stay. There is a small gym, day spa, concierge and ample garage parking. It was nice being so close to The Whaler Village; MonkeyPod makes a mean Mai Tai! You're also right next to black rock for snorkeling/cliff jumping if you're the adventurous type. Lahaina Front Street is a hop, skip and a jump away with the most adorable shopping, restaurants, and activities. Undoubtedly, we will be back!

Nice condo overlooking the Kaanapali Beach Ocean

  • 5 of 5

This condo is nicely kept, clean condo with the owner providing some nice amenities such as beach chair & beach parasol for the condo users to use when they go out to a beach. The bedding was very comfortable, and ligting system in the condo worked well. Free washer & dryer just outside of the condo is very convenient, and the owner provided detergint pods for cloth washing as well as dish washing. AC worked out efficiently, and so does all the appliances. All in all, I would highly recommend this condo. At the end of my stay (this is the first time that I rented directly from the owner without ever referring to VRBO previously), as I searched VRBO for a comparable condo's with ocean views at the Whalers, I did find several other ocean view condo's in high floors with lower pricing than this unit- I should note this for what it is worth.

I would say , though, that my experience with the owner, Dr. Bill Rudolph, was a wonderful experience, always straight, no games, and prompt with responses.

Wonderful clean property in the best location

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Whaler. It really is the best location, right in front of a great beach for snorkeling or enjoying the sun and sand. The Whaler property seems to be recently redone, was clean and fresh. All the staff was polite. We liked that there was a washer/dryer for use (and free!) on our floor. The Whaler 1063 unit was clean and furnished with all the necessary amenities plus some. We were glad there were two beach umbrellas. We will definelty stay in the Whaler again in the future!

The Whaler is beautiful, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Condo 1063 is the perfect vacation getaway. We enjoyed the sunrise every morning with coffee on our lanai. The views are amazing! Location couldn’t be better. The AC kept the place cool when we needed it, and it felt like home immediately. Do yourself a favor and book this!

Whaler condos are the perfect vacation location.

  • 5 of 5

Our condo was clean and had the most beautiful to view of the ocean on one side and amazing mountain scapes on other side. Having the beach just a few steps from the building was a dream. The shopping and restaurants were short walk to many choices and tastes. We felt very secure and the customer service was excellent. We would recommend this condo to all our friends.

Thank you,

The Almendares Family

Beautiful Views of ocean and mountains

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in a number of different condos at the Whaler over 39 years. This tied with one other for the best combination of value and beauty. The condo is very clean and nicely decorated. The views are spectacular. The owner provides a great amount of information to the client. If you are a first time visitor this would be very helpful. If you are a swimmer and new to Maui, the swimming beach from the Whaler down to Black Rock is the best I have every seen. Very safe and the water is clear, and you never no when a giant sea turtle might swim under you. I highly recommend this condo and this location.
