About the Property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms (1 King, 2 doubles) + Sofa bed (s), 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 6)

This very spacious (1,440 square feet) condo on the ground floor of Tower 1 is ideal for families with children and also provides easy access for seniors (very often the grand-parents). In addition a wide lanai and a private garden corner in the inner courtyard (from where you can get a glimpse of the ocean) fields extra space suitable both for relaxation and room for the children to play outside in a safe environment.

And, please do not forget: When the childen come back home with dirty outfits, unit 121/123 has its own washer/dryer cabinet inside the condo and there are no waiting times.

The condo is only a few steps away from all the amenities at The Whaler including the tennis court, the new lobby building (front desk, concierge and activity reservation desk) , the daily feeding of the colorful carps in the inner courtyard pond, the gym and spa on the basement floor of Tower 1, the BBQ facilities, the Whaler pool with a hot tub and sun decks serviced by the Pool Kiosk with free bath towels as well as beach chairs and, last but not least, the sandy beach and ocean right in front of the main buildings.

Direct access is also available only one minute away to the next-door's Whaler Village with some 60 shops and several upper class restaurants (Leilani, Hula Grill, etc ) on the ocean shore as well as a food court for low budgets and children favorites. Additonal restaurants are ready to welcome you at the close-by Westin Resort on the left side and the Kaanapali Beach Hotel on the right side of the beach walk ultimately leading to the Hyatt Resort and the Sheraton Maui respectively.

Unit 121/123 is unique within the Whaler property because it is decorated tastefully throughout the condo with Maui marine artwork by Robert Lyn Nelson and one can fully enjoy the beauty of the Maui waters and the underwater fauna population also inside the condo! His original work can also be admired at the Lahaina Galleries on Front Street in Lahaina.

Quite aside from the wide-ranging improvements and reconstruction at The Whaler Resort as a whole during the past few years, our unit 121//123 has undergone an extensive renovation program during the second half of 2016. The kitchen has been totally redone with granite countertops and new cabinetry and is fully equipped for home cooking and servings for six persons and plus. The guest bathroom has been newly equipped with a glass shower cubicle and the living room got new sofa beds together with a matching loveseat and upholstery.

Among our guests, some parents with teenage children asked us to exchange the king-size bed in the guest bedroom for separate beds and we had two new double beds installed. For all our guests, we are also offering a range of different pillows to allow them to select the most suitable ones for them for their comfort. For smaller childen, a highchair is available and baby cribs can be arranged upon request. For emergency guests, a deluxe air bed can be easily inflated with the accessories that come along with it.

Overall, he location in the center of Kaanapali Beach cannot be beaten! Within less than one minute by car, you find the Club House of the Kaanapali Golf Resort at the entrance of Kaanapali Parkway with one Championship and one Resort Golf Course, the latter also very entertaining for ladies. Further out, it is a 10-minute drive to Lahaina and Kapalua where you will find more beaches, golf resorts like the world-famous Kapalua Plantation Course (PGA Champions Tournament early in January every year), shops, restaurants, art galleries, theatres and lots of entertainment.

Location

The Whaler is located beach-front on Kaanapali Beach with 3 miles of glittering white sand. On the other side of the blue ocean, Lanai Island is part of the daily Hawaiian sun-set ritual and the area in between is the home of the Humpback Whales from December to early April for splendid whale-watching.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: My father bought the condo when I was only 7 and my siblings were 9 and 5. We came every year from Tokyo to Maui to enjoy the spring break and the summer vacations. We did everything and never got tired of: playing in the pool, swimming with the dolphins in the ocean, snorkeling in Molokini, parasailing, whale watching, drive up Mt. Haleakela and biking down from the top of the volcano as well as the challenging drive on the winding road to Hana and the Seven Pools. Of course, as we grew older, we joined our parents on many of the beautiful golf courses in Maui. Our family shares so many fond memories of our vacations in Maui, including my sister's wedding at the Olowalu Plantation in 2005 and my father's 70th Anniversary Celebration in 2008. Now that we have all grown up, my parents and I primarily come to Maui to play golf and enjoy the beautiful weather and views of the ocean. After 25 years, we are still not tired of Maui and immensely enjoy every stay. Now, the property is owned by KESAG Hawaii Ltd., a company incorporated in the State of Hawaii with headquarters in Maui and owned by the whole family. Soon, my nephews and nieces will start coming to Maui and to The Whaler to learn how to swim with the turtles. Hopefully, I shall have my own children to bring here some day as well.

Why the Owner Chose Lahaina, HI, USA:
When our family came for the first to Maui in the mid-1980ies, we stayed at a hotel and soon realized the space limitations for a family with children. The second time, my father decided to change to a condo which met our various requirements almost to perfection. We also realized that Maui's reputation as 'The best Island in the World' was more than an empty slogan and we soon became 'Maui-addicted' and wanted to come again and again. My father's logical conclusion was to buy a condo for ourselves and The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach was an easy choice as the Premier Resort in Maui already 25 years ago. Now, with the US$35,000,000 total renovation and rejuvenation completed in 2012, The Whaler has regained its reputation as the Premier Resort on Kaanapali and received a Certificate of Excellence from Trip Adviser and a 3-Diamond Rating from AAA.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The condo boasts one of the largest collection of Robert Lyn Nelson (Maui's famous marine artist) artwork in Maui outside of his studio. Special visits to the artist can be arranged depending on his availability on the island. The property also features a large lanai and private lawn garden corner which is unique to a ground floor property and makes the unit particularly suitable for children. We are also close to the beautiful landscaping of the courtyard. The unit also provides easy ground floor access for seniors who enjoy the serene beauty of the scenery both inside and outside of the condo.
