About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Beautiful Ocean Views of the channel and island of Lanai, Kaanapali Beach and west Maui Mountains greet you each morning on your private 11th floor lanai. Relax in the tropical breezes and the sounds of the surf as you watch whales (Dec-April) and dolphins dance in the ocean. Inhale picturesque evening Sunsets with tropical drinks in-hand and soft Hawaiian music.

During the day slip into your flip flops, check out towels from the beach activities kiosk and step out to the pool and soft, sandy beach to enjoy your choice of water activities. Snorkeling at world famous Black Rock is a short walk down the beach. Sail on a whale-watching or sunset cruise. Scuba and sport fishing are readily available. Or settle down in a lounge chair with your favorite book.

Did we mention golf? The Royal Kaanapali course (36 holes) is across the street. The Bay and Plantation courses are a quick 15 minute drive. You'll enjoy the on-site tennis courts that have been recently resurfaced and tennis pro who will arrange matches or lessons with like ability players.

Whaler's Village, adjacent to the Whaler, is a high-end but low key (flip flops and cover-ups are de rigueur ) shopping, dining and entertainment mecca.

Lahaina, a small town and former way-station for 18th century whalers, is a short 2 miles away, easily reachable by car or a free trolley car from Whaler's Village.

The unit could use some painting. Especially the bathrooms. But I love the Whaler and will be back every year!

Owner's Response: Thank you for writing a review! We are aware the unit needs painting and have scheduled the painters for mid August. Our location is one of the prime spots at the Whaler and we're glad you enjoyed it. Hope you'll be back!

Looking over paradise

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful views from a very spacious condo. Best location in Kaanapali. Condo was well equipped,especially with beach stuff. The TV in the bedroom was a little challenging as the cable box kept turning off and had to reboot with help from the Whaler staff. We really didn't use it much anyway as the views were much more interesting. Thanks for a great vacation.

Very nice location. We had views of much of Ka’anapali Beach and the whalers village.

  • 4 of 5

The whaler on Kaanapali is our favorite place to stay on Maui. We get the beach right out front and the people are pleasant that work there and give us the accommodations we enjoy, pool, sauna, beach umbrellas, chairs for a small fee. The condos are all kept up and the one we stayed in this time had everything you need for cooking on the times stayed in to eat. It was also nice to have the whalers village just a short walk away for shopping, restaurants and entertainment. We will be back again soon! Mahalo Hawaii

Perfect Condo with the best view ever

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at the Whaler since I was a teenager. My parents used to own a unit on the 7th floor and I thought that was the best view until I stayed here. It's incredible and looks just like the pictures even better. Sleeping to the calming sound of the ocean with our sliding doors open is so soothing. There are so many beautiful birds to hear in the morning, I'm so at peace. This unit is just high enough to hear the music from the Hula Grill where it's just right. To me this condo gets the very best views as its on the.sunny side of the Whaler to view the Pacific Ocean and Kaanapali Beach.

The owner Judy was very personable and answered my questions quickly. It all went very smoothly and we had a fantastic trip! Even though the construction was going on in the lobby and part of Whaler's Village, we still frequented our favorite stores and restaurants. I highly recommend the Ahi Tacos at the Hula Grill. When Whalers Village is complete (Soon) it will be top-notch!

We would love to stay here again and it being on the 11th floor helped me get my exercise in each day!

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

1st time staying in this condo with our 2 teenagers. Had a great time although it could have been a bit longer stay. 5 nights just wasn't enough. It was perfect size especially having the 2 bathrooms. The view sitting on the balcony was awesome. Loved be able to cook on the immaculate barbeques on the ground level. Thank you so much for making this such a great vacation for us and lovely memories. Can't wait to come back!!

Another Excellent Stay at Unit 1157

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying in this beautiful condo! I had in my memories how great it was but I didn't truly realize the beauty of this view until we came back. Once again I was drawn in by the sounds and sights of the ocean, the view of the catamarans coming and going from the front of the Whaler's Village and the comfort of this condo. I can't wait for stay number 3!!
