About the property

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-2)


Relax in this fully remodeled, luxurious condo and enjoy the spectacular views of Black Rock at Kaanapali Beach while feeling the tropical breezes from the lanai. Located high on the north side of tower two, for those that know the Whaler, Unit 964 in Tower II is in the preferred location!

This completely renovated studio features a fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and custom cherry cabinets. Should you desire to cook while in paradise, this full size kitchen has a built in micro wave, an ultra quiet dishwasher and cookbooks from top Aloha chefs. A BBQ Grill tool set is available for successful grilling at one of the two Gas Barbeque areas and complete barware equipment is available for making mai tais to enjoy while watching the sunset from the lanai. If you would rather dine out, Whalers Village with its choices of excellent restaurants and shops is just steps away. No need to drive anywhere!

The custom furnishings and dramatic quality finishes throughout the living area were designed to relax you into the aloha state of mind! With beautiful travertine flooring in the entry and kitchen leading into plush carpet in the living area, you'll find a comfortable inviting atmosphere. When you aren't watching the whales or playing in the surf right outside your door, the condo's entertainment includes a large flat screen TV with DVD, IPod/Ipad docking station and free wifi. The king size bed features a Serta Perfect Sleeper Mattress with luxurious sheets. The sheets have a 500 thread count and are 100% pima cotton - perfect for tropical conditions. The Studio is air conditioned with automatic climate control.

The bathroom features granite countertops, a dramatic onyx sink, beautiful travertine shower with bench and a crystalline travertine rock floor. There are ample thick hydrocotton Turkish bath towels for your use. A built in makeup mirror, hair dryer and walk in closet with built in custom drawers are additional touches to make your stay so much more relaxing. Also provided for your convenience and enjoyment of a leisurely day at the beach is a large Tommy Bahama beach umbrella, and two Tommy Bahama back pack beach chairs with attached coolers.

Go for a swim in the beachfront swimming pool, take a dip in the Jacuzzi, work out in the fitness center or play a round of golf at one of the two championship golf courses next door. The possibilities for fun and relaxation are practically endless! And, of course The Whaler is just minutes away from Lahaina with it's exciting mix of restaurants, shops and entertainment.

About Jan Anderson

After visiting Maui for the first time over 15 years ago, I found that it was the perfect escape to rainy Pacific Northwest winters. My reading material of choice while laying on the beach quickly became Maui Real Estate magazines as I dreamt of one day owning my own place in paradise. After many years of dreaming and thinking about where the ideal location was, I found it at my home at The Whaler. I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I do. I believe that the sweeping views and the fabulous location combine to make it a perfect place to relax and experience Aloha (the breath of life)!

Jan Anderson purchased this condo in 2010

Love The Whaler!

  • 4 of 5

The Whaler is a great complex. Very clean and well kept. The people who work at The Whaler are extremely friendly, helpful and always quick with an "aloha" or "mahalo". I enjoyed the lobbies free coffee in the morning, sweet tea and flavoured waters in the afternoon. Add some vodka to your iced tea for a great beach drink! Lol. The Whalers location could not be better. Great beach, near Black Rock with its great snorkelling, next door to the Whalers Village shops and a 10 minute, $2 bus ride to Lahaina and their great restaurants. The condo is excellent, nicely updated and containing all you need for your stay. The photos are very consistent with the actual space. You do not need to worry about that, what you see is what you get. This is not always the case I have learned from my rental experiences. The view from the Lanai is really special, ocean and Black Rock to the left, mountains and rainbows to the right. My only complaint of the Lanai is that it is not in the sun at any time of day as it is on the North side of the building. It would also be nice if the mattress and pillows were updated. I believe I read similar complaints in other reviews and they ring true. The mattress was too soft for me, kind of cheap feeling and the pillows are literally pancakes. I had to stack them to make them near fluffy enough. Considering the rest of the condo is updated with mostly higher end finishes, the bed fell a little short for me. While this might not be an issue for everyone, it left me with a sore back and neck most mornings. The Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage fixed me up nicely though and I would highly recommended this to everyone. While I wasn't there to watch tv, I would arrange the furniture differently as well for better viewing. The bed should be on the other wall to have a view of the ocean and the tv should be on a swing arm for a better angle from the couch. These are minor issues with an otherwise great location and would not distract me from staying at this condo again. This is my honest review of a "near perfect" condo with a "perfect" location in Maui!!!

Whaler beauty

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Whaler and Jan (owner) for allowing us to stay in this lovely beauty. This the is the second time I’ve stayed at the Whaler. This newly renovated studio came equip with all the basic necessities and some beach extra such as chairs, umbrella and cooler. Our patio view faced the ocean to the left and the mountains to the right. As two females who were traveling alone, we felt comfortable and safe staying at the Whaler. Due to the time difference, I was up by 3am the first morning and accessed the gym on the premises early that morning. I felt safe walking over to tower 1 and letting myself in to the gym. The facilities are immaculate and staff is friendly. Other than a daily resort fee there are no hidden cost. Parking was also free and a bonus. We walked from the Whaler along the beach walk to numerous restaurants at all hours of the day and felt safe. Pool was also easily accessible including the hot tub. There are also Whaler cabanas that can be rented on the beach that appeared excessive ($45 for 1/2 day and $65 for whole day) but this is not reflective of the condo experience at all. Overall, we were extremely pleased and plan to return to this unit again.

We Love This Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 7 days here for our 20th anniversary. We couldn't have picked a better location! This condo is right in the middle of one of the most popular beaches on the island.

The condo grounds are beautiful and the staff are very helpful and polite! We loved the location of the unit. This is on the 9th floor so the views are spectacular. We spent hours sitting on the balcony enjoying the view of the beach, black rock and the huge Koi pond. There are reefs right off the beach perfect for snorkeling. We even saw several sea turtles!

Everything about this unit was perfect. We especially loved the bed and pillows. It was so comfortable! There is also a parking area below the building which allows you to park right next to the elevator. That was an added surprise.

Thanks Jan for sharing your condo and helping make this a perfect anniversary trip!

964 far exceeded our expectations - well worth it! Thank you Jan for sharing your fantastic place.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in 964. Out host, Jan, was so good and responsive to every piece of communication - beginning with our very first inquiries. Due to airline issues we had to extend our trip a day and she made that work without a problem!

The unit itself is decorated and furnished so well, that it took our breath away when we entered. Immaculate and extremely clean! Beautiful kitchen - it truly is full complete kitchen, and wonderful bath - particularly the tiled shower. The furniture was chosen and laid out such that the unit did not at all feel tight or small, and the nice newer large King Bed was perfect! Another small feature, often not noted by people, is the high quality sliding glass doors and screens to the lanai. They slide and shut so easily and completely, compared to others we have encountered. Pretty much everything is top of the line! We had stayed 9 days and so had a mid-stay cleaning - that also went well and was very appreciated!

As for the Whaler, we have stayed there many times before, but 964 was by far the best unit we've been in. It is also on the prized north facing side of the South tower - so you don't get that full sun on it all day, yet you get to see the grassy courtyard and coi pond and look out towards the pool and the ocean. There have been some major recent renovations at the Whaler, which new visitors will get to appreciate. The new Reception Building is completed and we got to witness the Grand Opening on 12/15/2016. It is so beautiful, bright, and open! Also - there is a wonderful expanded BBQ area oceanside at the North Tower with plenty of tables and seating, along with a welcome firepit!

All in all - we had a wonderful time - much of thanks to Jan and her 964 unit! Highly recommended!
