Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home with us. This was our first time on this side of the island and we love it here! We had friends staying in other units in Tower I at the Whaler and by far yours was the best. We can't wait to come back.

I didn't want to leave-OWNER is great and easy to work with-View was unbelievable

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous! Enjoyed everything. Ron Willett the owner is really easy to get along with.

Only a couple of things:

Really a great place. Love the Whaler because you are close to Black Rock and close to Whalers Village which has all the great restaurants. Owner is unusually great to work with. Answers questions super fast and a nice person.

Having 2 bathrooms is a huge plus. The kitchen and bathrooms are older but are really OK.

Just a couple of friendly suggestions (no problem as we will stay at this particular unit again because we loved it)

1. Update bed linens. I slept on my clothes because the bed linens were so old and worn....kind of creeped me out. This is really simple to do. I have stayed at hotels 1500 nights in my career-I would recommend replacing with the simple white linens that hotels use (like the Marriott hotels) and it would feel so much better.

2. Update the old silk flower arrangements and decor. The bed mattresses were great, the bathrooms were fine, the beds themselves were comfortable. Just update the simple things-BEDDING, PAINT, holes in the ceiling in both bathrooms, the dusty decorations.

But really the bedding linens is the only thing that I think is really needed...and one of the simplest things to do.

Overall, the place was unbelievable. We absolutely loved it and will stay here again; mainly because the owner is so trustworthy and highly rated. (we had tried to stay at another unit where the owner was asking for a $1,500 deposit for damages; even though he had an ocean front unit, we decided to take this other unit which is Ocean view because the owner was rated so highly by everyone who has stayed there. We were worried that we would never see our $1,500 deposit again from the other guy).

The condo was exactly what we needed and then some. It was clean and safe and the views were breathtaking. It was easy working with the owner and everything went according to plan.

Needs a facelit

  • 2 of 5

We have been staying at the Whaler for 20 years. This unit is spacious and there is not a unit with a bad view. The unit is in bad need for a facelift. We had to call about the cable and TV twice as it was not working. Owner is not all that responsive. We had to leave early due to an emergency on the mainland...never heard from the owner at all.

Owner's Response: Hello Sharon, Your feedback is most appreciated. Please accept my sincere apologies for any inconvenience you may have experienced during your stay. My grandparents have owned this unit for 30 years. They are now in their 80s. My grandmother's health has declined over the last few years due to a stroke, and my grandfather's health has suffered due to stress from caring for my grandmother. The dates of your stay in the unit coincide with the dates my grandmother was admitted to the hospital for what ended up being a 4-month stay. My grandfather was considerably more stressed and distracted than usual during this time, this is most likely the reason for the lack of timely communication. My grandparents have since asked me to take over managing the unit for them. We do have upgrade/re-model plans in progress for the unit, and I can assure you that any correspondence going forward will receive a timely response. Again, my sincere apologies for any inconvenience.

Luxury on a budget

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at The Whaler 5 times before. This unit had the best price compared to any other unit we could find (and we already knew that there is no bad view at this place). The unit was clean and comfortable. It does not have major updates compared to other units (but you know that before you get there & who stays in their room the whole time anyways). The only surprise was the lack of "water toys" compared to other units we have stayed at. Not to worry, we purchased a body board and left it there for the next people, and we rented a good umbrella because theirs had tears in them. I recommended this unit to my sister who will be heading to Maui in June 2017. You just can't beat the price for what you get! I would definitely stay at this unit again. You just can't beat the location, view, or price. It is less expensive than the other hotels on the beach, and you get a real bedroom, two bathrooms and a kitchen... we will be back!
