Guestbook comments from the owner

We call this our home away from home. JaNell and Simon, the owners go over the top to make us feel like while we are here this is our home. The view is the best on Kaanapali, none better. Everything is provided in the condo and of the highest quality. We love the beds, they are so comfortable and cozy. This is our third year traveling to their condo and we are trying to work out a date for next year with an additional week. Mahalo

My Response

Mahalo for your thoughtful and kind review. We are looking forward to your return to our Whaler suite 802. Sincerely JaNell and Simon.

Perfect Maui condo time after time!

  • 5 of 5

Our first experience with Janel and Simon was our trip to Maui in 2002 and we have stayed in their condo every trip since then. They have been very courteous and easy to work with on each on our trips. Our latest trip, 2/24/17-3/9/17, was our 6th stay there. Over the years, the condo has been consistently beyond our expectations. There isn't a more perfect view of Kaanapali Beach or Black Rock. The condo itself has been meticulously kept up to date with top end appliances and furnishings. The kitchen is well stocked with all the needed pots, pans and dishes. The pantry is well stocked as well. The outside cabinet has all the beach equipment needed. (boogie boards, chairs, toys etc.) The Whaler is centrally located on Kaanapali Beach next to the Whaler Village Shopping area with numerous restaurants close by and a 5 minute drive to Lahaina. It is a dream to vacation here. You really never want to leave!

Pure luxury with breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 stayed 2 weeks at the Whaler 802 for the holidays and we couldn't have asked for a better family vacation! JaNell the owner was wonderful to work with before and during our stay. She made us feel welcome and comfortable throughout our stay. The condo is pure luxury beautifully decorated with all top of the line appliances. Everything we needed was at our fingertips, from kitchen essentials to chairs and boogie boards for the beach. The owners did not miss a beat. The views not only from inside the condo but from both sides of the lanai are spectacular. The Whaler location is so close and walking distance to so many restaurants, shopping, water sport activities, spas, etc. We absolutely loved the location! We can't imagine staying anywhere else when we are in Maui. Thank you JaNell and Simon for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Amazing Water views and luxury home

  • 5 of 5

This was the most amazing home at the Whaler that I have ever stayed in. The views from the home inside and outside are soooo beautiful you will never want to leave. JaNell is great to work with and includes many amenities within the home. There was great coffee and even Splenda! We only cooked breakfast in but all the pots and pans and anything else you would ever need were included. Everything was top of the line! We loved it! Thank you so much

Heavenly accomodations on Kaanapali Beach

  • 5 of 5

The Whaler property is ideally situated on Kaanapali Beach very close to all beach activities, embarkation of catamaran snorkel and sunset cruises, restaurants and shopping. You actually don't have to have a car once you arrive from the airport 40 mins away. A valet greets you on arrival in the underground parking and assists with moving in. A new lobby and visitor center is under construction and looks to be first class. Suite 802 has a remarkable view looking down Kaanapali Beach toward Black Rock both on the front and side portion of the wrap around deck. The owners have thought of every detail in this beautifully furnished, modern 2-bedroom condo and you need only bring a bathing suit, sunscreen and toiletries - everything else and I mean EVERYTHING is provided. Very quiet except for the peaceful sound of the waves washing ashore below. The owners are very friendly and accommodating and keep the property well-maintained. I would definitely stay here again when I return to Maui and will recommend it to friends. Activities I would recommend include Hula Girl Sunset Cruise, O' Farm Tour and Lunch (upcountry), the aquarium, Weds night slack key guitar music show in Napili, breakfast at Gazebo (go late in morning to avoid a long wait), dinner at Miso Phat (bring your own beer), Hanu, and Star Noodle. We stocked up on food as well from Safeway which is a few miles south of The Whaler (you can stop on your way in from airport) and has fresh fish. The nearby ABC store in Whaler's Village has a good wine selection.

The Whaler 802

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I love staying at The Whaler. It is the best location in Maui with everything close to the condo - restaurants, shopping and snorkeling. The Whaler 802 is more than we could have imagined. Once you stay here, you will never want to stay anywhere else. We were 4 adults on this trip. When the owners, JaNell and Simon, say they want this to feel like your home, it is an understatement. JaNell was so gracious in our planning. This condo really has all the comforts of home plus more. There is a huge variety of cooking spices, flour, sugar, olive oil and coffee. The bathrooms are fully stocked with shampoo, soaps and lotions. And the icing on the cake, the condo has the most spectacular ocean and sunset views of any unit we have stayed in and it is beautifully decorated. You will never want to leave. They also have plenty of beach supplies for your use. It will be hard for us to rent any other condo (even if it is just the two of us) after experiencing the magic of 802. We can't wait to plan our next trip. Thank you JaNell and Simon for sharing your home. Michelle & Chuck Akers, Dallas, TX

A true gem

  • 5 of 5

The Whaler Suite 802 offers an incredible level of luxury in a perfect location. While a hotel may be able to match this feeling of luxury, the essence here is that this luxury is paired with a relaxed, cosy atmosphere you would normally only experience at home.

That is a unique combination and this is why I recommend to book Suite 802 wholeheartedly.

The suite:

Everything you can dream of is there, in great quality and mint condition. This goes from the kitchen with everything from high quality cutlery to elegant tableware to the top notch Miele, Sub-Zero and Bosch appliances. When you enter a hotel room or suite, and many condos, you will find that it's "dry", i.e. you will have to buy everything from Salt and Pepper onwards. Not here! The kitchen is perfectly stocked with probably around 40-50 different seasonings and just about everything you could possibly need to get started. All you need to buy yourself are the daily groceries.

This setup might be tricky in some places, where you may find yourself a bit uncomfortable using "someone else's" kitchen. Not here!

The whole suite was so spotless, clean and shiny that we felt completely at ease and we did not hesitate to use whatever we needed.

JaNell puts a lot of effort into making you feel at home. It was a complete success from the moment we came in!

What else?

The luxury of course does not end in the kitchen. It goes on to the living room with it's unbeatable corner, ocean front view that extends over the nicest part of Kaanapali beach to the black rock, over to Molokai in the north and Lanai in the west.

Bedrooms and bathrooms - especially the huge master bathroom including TV - are equally pleasant and luxurious and you can enjoy the ocean view from both bedrooms equally well.

Still more?

Lots and lots of useful details, like the Miele Washer and Dryer that is essential when travelling for a longer period, especially with Children.

The pool: This is really a weak point of the Whaler. The pool is small and mostly rectangular and therefore - understandably - kids games and toys are restricted. Since our kids were not used to swimming in the ocean before our trip, I thought that this might develop into a real issue, but I am more than happy to report that the kids loved the beach instantly so much that we did not use the pool for anything else but to clean off the part of the sand which did not come off on the beach shower.

Verdict:

You cannot go wrong when you stay here.
