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.

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!

Best Whaler Condo Yet

  • 5 of 5

We have now stayed at the Whaler in seven different units and this one has been our favorite one yet. Not only was the view fantastic, the owner was accommodating on short notice, and delightful to work with. The condo was well stocked, furnished and very clean. We are looking forward to staying here again!

Great Trip! Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Whaler and our first in this unit . It is a fantastic condo, nicely furnished with everything you could possibly need. Beautiful views from the lanai, even better than what the pictures show. Sunsets were out of this world and whale watching was an everyday adventure. Plenty of nice restaurants nearby made for romantic dinners and ocean front walks. Relaxing by the pool during the day and watching the divers at Black Rock in the evening made it even harder to leave when our time was up. Most of all it was a special trip for us as I asked Jeanine to marry me. So this trip and this stay will always have a special spot in our memories. We hope to return soon and will be staying right here!

Just wanted to add this information to anyone looking to stay here. You could not ask for a nicer owner to deal with. Walter made it so easy and his condo was clean, updated and had everthing you could need as I mentioned earlier. Parking was good, pool was fantastic, staff was friendly and helpful. Truly a great place to stay.

This is a great condo and working with the owner was a pleasure. The condo is in an outstanding location, you can easily see and hear the ocean, but yet you are high enough to have privacy from the courtyard area. All of the rooms were clean and well maintained; the free wireless internet access was helpful as always. There was some construction being done at the facility, which the owner was very up front and open about and provided status updates prior to arrival as to any implications it may have on the stay. The overall location of the facility is outstanding, especially if you enjoy water activities; the snorkeling is fantastic, no need to pay for a tour when you have an “aquarium” off of the beach. There are ample items that you can rent if you like, from snorkeling gear to surfboards. Black Rock is only a couple of hundred yards away which provides a nightly sunset event, with the traditional lighting of the torches and cliff dive. If you want to do a day trip to another island, the West Maui airport is a short 5-10 min drive away with easy access in/out. The city of Lahaina is also only a short drive away if you want to pick up groceries or anything else that you may need. My experience and stay was very worthwhile and I would recommend this condo and owner.

Fantastic Unit!

  • 5 of 5

This unit was much more beautiful than the photos could show! The view is amazing. You can actually sit inside on the couch and pretty much have a full ocean view of all the fun activities on Kaanapali beach-boats, swimming, parasailing, etc. The owner is so helpful and easy to deal with. I loved having our own huge private lanai with ample furniture and lovely shade. We ate most of our meals here and relaxed. For your info-There are lots of books to read, 3 beach chairs, and many cooking staples and toiletries that I assume were left by guests. Check it out before you go to the store. All the employees of the Whaler that we had contact with were very nice.
