About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

This immaculate Whaler beach view 1 bedroom 2 bath offers beach and ocean views out to the Island of Molokai.

THE CONDO: The bedroom includes a king size bed, TV (with cable), a bathroom, direct access to the lanai/balcony, and lots of closet space. The living room/dining area contains a queen-size sofa sleeper, TV (with Cable), a table and four chairs, a completely remodeled fully equipped kitchen (including granite countertops and new wood/glass cabinets), a bathroom and direct access to the spacious lanai.

Located on the 4th floor of Tower II, #470 offers the perfect location to enjoy a quiet fun filled vacation while taking in the views of Kaanapali beach and the beautiful Whaler courtyard.

The condo is managed by Whalers Realty, which is located just steps away, so they can handle any emergencies or questions you may have when you are in the condo.

THE WHALER AT KAANAPALI BEACH: Fronting the beautiful golden sandy beach of Kaanapali, the twin towers of the Whaler on Kaanapali Beach rest on 6.67 acres, and contain a total of 360 units. Amenities include a fitness center, two tennis courts, swimming pool, hot spa, and two barbecue areas. One of the newest renovations to the resort is their tranquil courtyard.

Saunter through the paths over a bridged Koi pond while enjoying the sounds of the waterfall nearby. The Whaler has secured entry and a uniformed security guard onsite 24 hours a day. The Whaler is run as a 'condo-tel', and within the marble floored lobby, a bellman, full service front desk staff, and concierge are available to assist you. Parking is available underground between the two towers. Security continues as a pass key is the only way to gain access to each of the towers, which have the convenience of three elevators ready to raise you to one of the twelve floors above.

The Whaler has recently completed a major renovation to maintain its ranking as a world class resort property. The swimming pool, lounge area, tennis courts, and the courtyard have been completely remodeled, and all major construction activities are now complete.

KAANAPALI BEACH: Kaanapali Beach is consistently rated as one of the top beaches in the world. Many condos/hotels claim to be on Kaanapali Beach, don’t be fooled. Most are located in areas where it’s either rocky or you can’t swim due to sharp coral. However the Whaler is located in the center of Kaanapali’s best stretch of swim-able beach. If you wish to go snorkeling, just walk down to the beach, jump into the water and snorkel around Black Rock, one of the top snorkeling areas on the entire island - right out your back door.

The Black Rock is believed by ancient Hawaiians to be the site from which their spirits 'jumped off' or left this world to join their ancestors. The Black Rock area is highly popular for snorkeling and scuba diving as the rock forms a great reef wall attracting turtles and hundreds of beautiful tropical fish.

SHOPPING, RESTAURANTS AND OTHER ACTIVITIES: Right next door to the Whalers is Whaler's Village, where you will find more than 90 stores, from sophisticated clothes to Crocs, from diamond earrings and designer bags to plenty of Hawaiian memorabilia! Whaler's Village also has some world-class restaurants, including Hula Grill (Hawaii seafood in a vintage Maui oceanfront setting; try the brownie ice cream sandwich for desert!), Leilani's (steaks, prime rib, kiawe smoked ribs, chicken, burgers, salads, sandwiches and pupus) and Maui Fish and Pasta (try the black squid ink linguini; excellent!). Whaler's Village also has a food court, a Subway, a frozen yougurt shop, and an excellent coffee shop. In addition, resort hotels within a 5 minute walk of the Whaler include a Westin, Marriott, Hyatt and Sheraton, all with excellent restaurant options on site.

Also within a 5 minute walk is the Kaanapali Golf Resort, which offers 36 holes of golf and is rich in history and tradition. Built on the playground of ancient Hawaiian royalty, the golf resort has panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and the West Maui Mountains. Home of the Champions Tour Kaanapali Classic for 14 years, the Royal Kaanapali Course also hosted Shell’s Wonderful World of Golf, the Canada Cup and the LPGA Kemper Open.

AMENITIES: fully equipped kitchen, blender, microwave, coffee maker, dishwasher, iron/ironing board, Broadband Internet access, basic cable service, 2 TV’s, DVD, CD stereo, bath with full sized tub, central air conditioning, bed linens and towels. There are also washer/dryers available on the same floor of the building and gas BBQ facilities on the Oceanside of each tower. The Whaler provides additional amenities including pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, a fitness center, tennis courts, concierge, underground parking, koi ponds, and business center. A paved oceanfront pathway stretching the entire length of Ka'anapali Beach will take you to the Black Rock, world class resorts, restaurants, and shopping.

Call today we look forward to being of service and welcome you, to come for a visit, and return time and time again to enjoy the wonders of this wonderful Maui treasure.

About The Owner

My wife and I are graduates of University of Pennsylvania, and now live in the Washington DC area. We love the condo, but with kids, can't get there as often as we like. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2010

Why The Owner chose Lahaina

We love Maui, and especially Kaanapali Beach. The Whaler is the most convenient and affordable location in Kaanapali, right on the beach, with tennis, a swimming pool and gym on site. It is right next to world class dining and shopping, and just a 5 minute walk to excellent golf and other recreational activities.

What makes this condo unique

The best thing about the location is the variety of options you have. You can swim, golf, play tennis, bike, hike or do a number of other sports activities, or just relax by the pool or on the beach. There is something for everyone, from great family restaurants and activities that kids will enjoy, to some of the most sophisticated and elegant shopping in the world.

Great Condo and location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at unit 470 for 10 days starting April 11. Found everything to be exactly as advertised. Our first time at the Whaler, and for sure it won't be our last!!! (stayed at Kaanapali Shores 4 times before). Love the 2 bathroom bit, one for me, one for wife!! Also the washer dryer in the condo is a nice handy touch. We will definately look to rent this unit the next time we visit.

The Whaler itself is a great place, all very clean and everyone very helpful. Love the underground parking. It is as centrally located as one could ever want.

Our family of 4 had the best Spring Break ever! Searched for places to stay for a long time and decided to go with the 1 bd/2 ba at The Whaler. So glad we did! Right in the heart of Ka'anapali. Close to the beach, restaurants, shopping. Our favorite part was just relaxing in the morning with our coffee on the lanai watching the whales.

Randall (the owner) is very prompt in his response time and very easy to work with. When we come back again, we are definitely booking #470 with him. Provides you with boogie boards, washer/dryer was huge, all that you would need for kitchen items. We have two teenage girls and there was plenty of room for sleeping with the couch bed and a rollaway bed. The grounds there are immaculate. We hardly even used the pool because we were in the ocean for the most part.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind and enthusiastic review. We are always happy when our guests have a great vacation. I couldn't agree more that one of the best things to do is simply sitting on the lanai, sipping coffee and enjoying the view. I hope you consider coming back to Maui, and the condo, soon!

Fantastic stay! Best location on Kaanapali

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic 7 night stay at Whaler 470! Randall (the Owner) was great - very prompt and helpful.

Unit has great view, is comfortable, roomy and clean. Best location on Kaanapali beach - and closest to the water! Great large lanai - giving great view of the ocean and courtyard.

The unit is great - well outfitted with everything you would expect or need - a pizza pan would be the only suggestion.

Wi-Fi in unit is great (code on cable box for those looking)

Washer / Dryer in unit is a definite plus.

Morning coffee and afternoon lemonade down by the pool.

Close to numerous restaurants for when you do want to go out and eat.

Will definitely be back again!!

Great location, comfortable and affordable!

  • 4 of 5

This condo is in a great location, on a great beach, close to Whalers village shops and cruise locations. Lanai has a good water view. Facility is well run and updated.

The master bed is very comfortable, a big consideration for me. They even have a memory foam topper for the sleeper couch. Roomy, well stocked. Washer /dryer in unit for convenience. Furniture in good condition. Owners,responsive.

On site management for peace of mind. Beach towels provided by resort. Would definitely stay in this unit again.

Only improvement suggestion- more study umbrellas for renter use. We ended up buying a big sport umbrella and leaving in it in the unit, as the cheap ones will not hold up to the wind on the beach.

Glad you thought the condo was in good condition, and well stocked. We will definitely get another strurdy beach umbrella in there for our guests, and thanks for leaving the one you purchased for future guests to enjoy. We hope when you come back to Hawaii, you will come back to stay in the condo. All the best!
