Gorgeous Luxury Studio With Spectacular Ocean Views -Whale Watch From The Lanai!
average rating of 5.0 based on 42 reviews

An amazing location and view!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been to Maui now 8 or 9 times and other islands 5 or 6 and by far this is the "Best" place we have ever stayed. Best decor, condition inside (beautiful),location, and especially view. The place is really well kept up and very clean and cared for. There are all of the most needed luxuries of home that you might need. The laundry facilities are literally right next door to you, but you can't hear them running. The pool and grounds were kept up immaculately. We loved being able to sit out on the lanai every morning while eating breakfast and watch the grounds people grooming and cleaning up the garden and lawn areas. It was not noisy while watching at all. Just amazing at all the work they do to keep everything looking so great. Beach Towels were always avaliable any time you needed by just turning in the two you had and getting two more. This was a great thing if you had been on the sand and wanted clean towels to use at the pool. The beach chairs were great to have to use for our side trips to other beaches we wanted to go hang out at for the day and they are great " Tommy Bahama" chairs that you can carry on your back so your hands are free to carry other things. Even though this is a studio it is much larger than some and has plenty of moving around space for 2 and even 4 if you were to have company. Can't even begin to tell you all the perks of this condo it is that great. We already look forward to our next visit back to Maui and this is the only resort and condo we will want to stay at from now on. Thanks John & Valene for sharing your beautiful home in paradise with others and we are very thankful we found your place.

Mahalo and Aloha

The Whaler---- Absolute beachfront

  • 5 of 5

About Whaler 315. What a wonderful experience. We have had many rental weeks at The Whaler, 315 is tops in our opinion. Tops for decor and furnishings. Tops for comfort especially. Tops for that feel at home feeling. Tops for "we want to return next year.

Bonus; the aircon is very very quiet and unobtrusive. As well, it turns off when the balcony door is opened, and turns on again when the door is closed. Result, we did not have to touch the aircon switch all the time we were there. The pool and the access to the beach are right there--beachside. Whaler shops are very handy and just a short walk along the beach walk.

We were very happy with our choice of Unit #315 of The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach. The unit itself was very nicely appointed as shown in the photos. We loved being on the 3rd floor. When sitting on the lanai (at the barstool height table and chairs which I think makes a difference) you have an excellent view of the ocean and the beautifully landscaped and maintained grounds of the Whaler property. Any lower and your view may be obstructed by the trees; any higher and you may lose the ambience of the grounds. The location of the Whaler on the beach was perfect for us. We could easily use the beach walkway carrying our beach chairs (provided in our unit) to get closer to Black Rock where there was excellent snorkeling just off the beach. We didn't see any big fish but there are plenty of colorful smaller fish as well as big green sea turtles! We used the beach walkway in the evening to go to dinner and for after dinner cocktails. It is idyllic!

A slice of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much Valene and John for the use of your beautiful condo at the Whaler. We had an amazing vacation and the unit was perfect in every way! The condo was comfortable and so well appointed. The views are just stunning and we can't say enough about the proximity to the beach! We ate many meals on the lanai while watching whales play in front of us - how can it get any better? Having the resort beach walk just steps from the door was wonderful and provided easy access to all the restaurants, shopping and other resorts. We absolutely will rent it again in the future as Kaanapali is now officially our "go to" vacation spot! Everything else seems to pale in comparison!

Perfect Maui Condo

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed ten wonderful days in this beautiful condo at the Whaler. The entire unit was top notch and we did not want for anything. We cooked almost all our meals there and we found the kitchen well stocked for all our cooking needs. It was great to have BBQs out front for grilling our meats as well.

The condo was equipped with high quality furniture and the king bed was very comfortable. There were all kinds of books and DVDs there to enjoy as well. A real bonus was having two beach chairs and an umbrella available for our use.

One thing that we would never have thought of was the great balcony furniture. This unit had a comfortable chaise lounge as well as two bistro chairs and table. The bistro chairs allow you to be high enough to see over the balcony rail while enjoying a coffee or cool drink. Our day would always begin with coffee on the balcony while watching the whales frolic in the ocean. So simple but also so enjoyable! Bring binoculars!

The condo is located right next to the Whaler Village which has nice shops and many restaurants. It's also located near the "Black Rock" which is great for snorkeling. We did see turtles there!

I would highly recommend this condo and would stay again in a heart beat. Thanks for sharing your perfect condo.

This was truly a luxury studio. Very upscale. My wife is a nurse and is a clean freak. She was impressed with how clean this unit was. Very comfortable bed and furniture. All stainless steel appliances. Tastefully decorated. Great location. Nice view of the pool and beach. Close to shops and one of our favorite restaurants, the Hula Grill. No question we will be back. Aloha and Mahalo to the owners.
