Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Ethel. Our vacation was amazing. Your place was very comfortable and everything the pictures showed. It seems some upgrades you have made are not on the current pictures on the site. It worked perfectly for us. We saw turtles every time we Snorkled. Visited Napili bay, honolua bay, went parasailing lyric took surf lessons and we ate at leilanis and the hula grill. Also at a little taco cart with amazing Ono tacos. We left Thursday before the storms came. The iao valley was beautiful. I did not have a chance to write in the guest book but intended on sending you a note. Lyric also loved feeding the fish Every morning. We used the pool at the Sheraton and ate at their poolside grill. We also were alerted that a 15 foot tiger shark was spotted by divers when we were at black rock. All in all great trip!!

Candace 😊

Unit 313 Whaler

  • 5 of 5

Over the last six years we have stayed at 8 different rooms in the Whaler, through both vrbo rentals as well as dealing directly with the Aston Hotel for room bookings.

I have finally found our keeper with Ethel's unit.

My quest has always been to find a unit with all day sun on the lanai, reasonable level to be able to use the stairs instead of the elevators, and offer a few at home amenities in it, whether it was beach gear or even spices already found in the kitchen that I didn't have to purchase for a two week stay.

Ethel's unit met and exceeded my expectations and there is no need for me to look any further for any other unit on our yearly trek to Maui!

I will also add that Ethel is a pleasure to work with. Very prompt and professional with the booking, which I truly appreciate!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Love the Whaler, love the location.

Always enjoy staying in Ethel's place, well equipped clean condo, great view sitting on the Lanai Really like the fact of being on the 3rd floor makes it easy to use the stairs to get to the pool if you choose. Ethel always does a great job getting back to you promptly and answering any questions you have. Look forward to staying here again.

Wonderfully Accommodating and Relaxing in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Darling wife and I spent 2 weeks in Maui - 10 days here in Ethel’s Whaler Unit #313, and a few days at the Westin Resort. Whalers Village is the hub of Ka’anapali for shopping, dining, and entertainment, and both the Whaler (which is next door to the village on the north) and the Westin (which is next door to the village on the south) were perfect locations. I’m talking next door > a one or two-minute walk. However, the Westin is a huge complex with huge crowds. We both MUCH preferred staying at the Whaler complex, especially in Ethel’s condo because it was so close and easy to go from her fantastic view balcony to the pool or beach in 30 seconds. Run out of cocktail? No problem, up to the room and her icemaker and blender could whip ‘em up and poured into her plastic tumblers and back to the pool faster than any rendition of ‘Tiny Bubbles’. The unit has a full kitchen and beautiful Hawaiian-themed china/table settings, silverware, cookware, utensils, etc. The bed was comfy - we slept well with the huge patio doors open all night listening to the beach waves as white noise (we already miss that). We shopped Foodland Farms in Lahaina (5-10 minute drive - there’s also a Safeway, Walgreens, etc) and cooked steaks and veggie dinners at the BBQ next to the pool and a few breakfasts in the unit. The whole Ka’anapali beach boardwalk is fabulous to walk, and the Whaler is right in the middle of it, yet quiet. The Whaler has full concierge and hotel services too which we used for making Luau, dinner reservations, etc. Ethel was a delight to work with and has a wealth of knowledge. No drama or surprises whatsoever - easy, prompt and efficient. When we come back to Maui, we’ll forgo any Westin or Sheraton, and stay entirely here in #313. Mahalo nui loa!

Best Value in Whalers

  • 5 of 5

I visit Maui several times a year for business and usually rent from HomeAway. This was the best priced unit at Whalers and it was great. When we waked in it was actually nicer than I was expecting.

The third floor was perfect enough for a view yet we were able to walk up and down the stairs to the beach. I highly recommend this condo and if it's available on my next visit I will book it again.

Thank you Ethel.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this apartment for a week and boy do we wish we'd have stayed longer. It was just perfect. We were there at a very hot time of the year and so it was nice that the balcony was never in the sun. We just sat out there whenever we weren't at the beach or eating or shopping. The apartment is really well furnished and a really great size for two people. It was in a great position - nice and close to shops and restaurants and the shuttle to Lahaina was so convenient. We didn't have a car and that just wasn't a problem. If we come back to Maui we will definitely stay here again and for longer. Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful apartment Ethel. It was the best vacation we've ever had.

Simply Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this unit is just right! The location of The Whaler itself is the best on Kaanapali Beach; it's right next store the Whaler's Village, a short walk to the black Rick for snorkeling, and the most swimable part of the beach. The unit's location within the resort is need for an elevator, close to the pool, and still has amazing views!! I sat on the lanai every morning and watched the whales! The unit's furnishings are very clean, comfortable, and Hawaiian themed. There are little extra's available to make your stay comfortable, like games, book, and beach chairs. The pool is great in that there is always available chairs, and they have plenty of umbrellas or cabana chairs if you like the shade! I would recommend this unit to all of my friends. We have been to Maui three times now, and stayed at other resorts and hotels (i.e. Sheraton) on Kaanapali beach; this has been our best accommodation by far!
