Guestbook comments from the owner

Your Maui home is stunning. We were so lucky to call this home while we were here. We had an incredible time from the moment we arrived. We truly savoured every minute we had here together. We'll be dreaming of this place for a very long time and only hope we can be back soon.

A warmest Mahalo from us both

January 2018 - Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at the Whaler 15 or so times over the last 30 years, and this unit is one of the best units we have stayed in. Vacationing with a 4-year-old, we were specifically looking for a ground floor unit and the extension of the patio onto the exterior grass area made the entire unit seem so much more open and spacious than units higher up.

The unit is completely stocked with enough bathroom towels, kitchen utensils, beach chairs, boogie boards, DVDs and games to keep the entire family satisfied. Everything in the unit is very well kept and clean and if I were looking for a ground floor unit again, I would rent this unit without hesitation.

And to anyone's concerns over the proximity to the elevator, we are very sensitive to sounds, especially my 4-year-old, and there were only 2 or 3 occasions over the week that we heard the "ding" from the elevator doors. This was a pleasant surprise as we had some initial concerns when booking, and in the end we agreed that the proximity to the main entry, elevators, koi pond, Whalers Village, and access out the patio to the beach is a significant advantage over the units higher up.

Fantastic Location and Outstanding Condo

  • 5 of 5

Over the past several years, my wife and I have had the opportunity to stay at several places in the Kaanapali Beach area. This was our first time staying at the Whaler and very happy we did. Besides the location, “on the beach” the Condo was outstanding. The unit had a great kitchen, nice overall layout and the two bathrooms which was very nice. Condo has been well maintained and upgraded which allowed us to truly enjoy our vacation. Being on the ground floor was an extra bonus that provided easy access to the building as well as having extra lawn space to enjoy the view of the water and great sunsets. We look forward to our next opportunity to stay in this condo and facility.

Another great stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo was outstanding as it was last year. It's so nice to be on the ground floor. Moved to another room in the Whaler because Ellen's condo was booked. The new room was supposed to be "deluxe," but it wasn't compared to Ellen's. Can't wait to be back!
