11th floor condo
Beautiful view of ocean!!! E mails and questions were answered in a timely matter. Check in process took a very long time as front desk did not have our reservation. Location of condo was perfect! The grounds of the whaler are beautiful!!!! We have been vacationing at the Whaler for 30 years and this is the most most disappointing unit we have stayed in. The unit - especially the bathrooms - have not been updated and the decor is very plain. The kitchen has everything needed to cook meals. There is not a washer and dryer in the unit, but is one for shared use right across the hall which was great! The carpet was really, really soiled, a cabinet in the kitchen right beside the stove would not close which interfered with using the stove and the living room blinds did not work. Maintenance was there within the hour to check things out. We were given a piece of electrical tape to keep the door closed (which did not work) and he put the blinds up so we could see out, but were unable to close them at night to eliminate outside light and remained that way throughout our stay. The carpet issue was never addressed! Again, the location and view could not be better!! We love the Whaler!!!!
Seamless vacation experience in perfect location
The whole experience at the Whaler, in the condo, and dealing with the owner was very easy. Property is as described the and Whaler is a very well maintained property with easy parking, check in and a full range of facilities....much like staying at a more expensive hotel, but with the advantages of a condo. Location is perfect... on the beach next to restaurants, fast food and the great ABC store. We recommended this property to family and friends.....and we will be back.
We've been coming to Maui regularly for the past 15 years and this has been our favorite trip so far. The location of the Whaler is absolutely excellent. We loved the superb swimming beach and the proximity to Whaler's Village for great meals at Leilani's and Hula Grill. We also really enjoyed the pool which always had loungers available and was not as noisy as most since the resort doesn't have many young kids about. Please note that the pool is deep -- 4"ft - 6ft which was too deep for our very tall 6yo to stand.
The unit itself was very nice with a beautiful ocean view and all the amenities we needed. The bed in the bedroom was very comfortable but the sofa bed would have been very uncomfortable for adults. Our 6 yo didn't seem to mind.
Ashvin was a pleasure to work with. Thanks for a great stay and we look forward to coming back on future trips.
Salwa and Family
We are glad that you enjoyed our condo and the wonderful views it offers.
We surely welcome your comments on the Sofa Bed and are planning to replace it with a Murphy bed in the future.
We look forward for you to visit us again in the future.
Excellent location for whale watching and sunsets and at a great value!
This is the third time we have stayed at the Whaler and we are never disappointed in our decision! We love the location of this unit - its on the sunny side but there's still some shade on the balcony to escape the sun if it's too hot. We actually thought the music from below was really good, but not loud enough, so we had to bring our own music out on the balcony. No one was visible on any of the balconies around us, so I'm guessing no one minded! I love the double bathroom with roomy vanities in these units! The bed was slightly firm for us, but we had a great night of sleep! The A/C worked great, also, on the muggy days. It was a whale watching show from the balcony every night - fantastic! Perfect sunset location, too. There are 2 small soaps per bathroom and coffee included in the rental. Huge closets, too. The carpet needs to be cleaned in a few spots, but for a beach rental, I was more than excited when we walked in the door! I will definitely rent this unit again!
Great view and location
Amazing views. Great location. Some noise but it was not a burden. Great music we could hear from down the Whalers Village. Not all day. Very quiet after 10:00 pm. Always something to see and enjoy. We enjoyed looking at the people down at the Village having fun. Great happy hour at the restaurants down bellow. We had everything we need for our stay, except wine opener which we bought and left it for you. The unit needs some updating, but it was ok. We had a great time. Thanks Ashinc.
