Overview

About the property

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

FRAUD ALERT! We do not advertise on Craigslist. If someone on Craigslist advertises a condo rental and refers you to this webpage, it's a fraud. Never wire money to these people. We only accept payment via VRBO.

We have completely remodeled our studio apartment. It is now *the* showcase studio at The Whaler. (Read the glowing reviews from our guests below.) The work was done by Scott Williamson, known as the #1 remodel contractor on Ka'anapali Beach. Some of our pictures were taken by Scott's photographer.

If you know the Whaler, then you know that #1015 is in a great location. It's on the 10th floor on the south side of the north tower, so you're overlooking the courtyard with a terrific view of the ocean and beach. From our private 10th-floor lanai you've got terrific views of the ocean including all of the island of Lanai. Look in the other direction and you've got a great view of the mountains. (There are 12 floors in the building.)

If you don't know the Whaler, you're in for a treat. The Whaler is in the best location on Ka'anapali Beach. Walk out of the building and you're just a few steps away from the beach. (Closer than any other property on Ka'anapali Beach.) Directly next to the property is Whaler's Village with dozens of shops and three excellent beachside restaurants. And because you're staying at the Whaler, you don't have to drive home after dinner.

All linens are provided. Check-out cleaning is included free of charge. Additional cleaning during your stay can be arranged for a nominal fee.

A deposit of two nights’ rental is required with your reservation. The balance plus a $350 damage deposit, is due 60 days prior to arrival. The damage deposit is fully refundable upon satisfactory inspection of the unit's condition following your stay. A 60-day notice is required for cancellation. Cancellations more than 60 days prior to the arrival date will be refunded in full. Cancellations within 60 days of the arrival date forfeit the full rent.

About Doug Kaye

Our mainland home is in beautiful Marin County, just north of San Francisco, but we try to spend as much time on Maui as we can. Our other apartment (#707 a 1BR/2BA) is our home-away-from-home and we often use #1015 for special guests. We visit 3-4 times every year and we spend most of our time making sure everything in both of our condos is just right for our family and guests.

Doug Kaye purchased this condo in 2006

Why Doug Kaye chose Lahaina

We first stayed at the Whaler on our 15th wedding anniversary. That was 31 years ago in 1986. To us, the Whaler is all about the location. We love that we can walk out of the building and immediately be on the beach. We love that we can sit on the lanai any time between January and April and watch whales. And we love that we can walk home from half a dozen great informal restaurants.

What makes this condo unique

The beach is literally 30 paces from the building. We walk on the beach and swim in the ocean every morning. We love walking down to Black Rock, coming back to the middle of the beach, getting free fresh towels, taking a swim, drying off lying on the sand, then heading back to the condo. Every day should begin this way! And every evening should include a Mai Tai made by Johnny at Leilani's, just down the path at Whalers Village.

Our favourite!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this condo before and it was just as before - our home away from home. Everything you could want for a relaxing holiday is available and up to date facilities make it very comfortable. The bed is really comfortable which is a big bonus for us.

Thanks again, we will be back :)

Beautiful Remodeled studio

  • 5 of 5

This studio was a delight to stay in. My husband and I felt at home. This is what we look for when we are traveling. The studio is smartly appointed. Nothing has been overlooked. This place is ready to be lived in the minute you walk in. The only thing you'll need is food. Thanks for a great vacation.

We recommend this property!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed staying at this clean, quiet property with a beautiful view from the balcony of both the ocean and foothills. All the staff onsite were great and the owners were a pleasure to work with. The beach was perfect and good restaurants and shopping were within easy walking distance. We recommend!
