Great week in Maui

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Whaler 315. Excellent ocean view, and perfect location to access the beach from the condo. We would return in a heartbeat if the mattress was more comfortable (time for a new quality one) and the toilet handle was replaced. Super hard to flush the toilet. Other than these two things, the place is outstanding. Workers at the Whaler were very friendly and helpful.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Scott. We are very happy to hear you enjoyed your Maui vacation. We are a bit puzzled by your comments on the bedding since the mattress in our unit is of the highest quality obtainable on Maui and we receive nothing but compliments on the comfort. The toilet handle was replaced recently and was a minor adjustment. Happy New Year to you and yours. John

Stayed here for our honeymoon the place was amazing. It was great that your unit came fully equipped with everything we were able to cook when we needed to. The view from the Lanai is so beautiful we sat out here everyday had breakfast and coffee. So realxing. Went to a lot of places paia town Lahainatown did the road to Hana and on our last night we did the booze cruise. I have been to Maui before however this was my husband's first trip here and also ours as newlyweds. We both agreed that this was the perfect honeymoon/vacation/get away for us. The bed is very very comfortable. Currently sitting on the Lanai one last time before we leave today ;( thank you both for everything it was perfect. We will be back! Thanks again for everything!

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!
