The Partridge Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Whaler 8 or 9 times, in various condos but never have we enjoyed the physical comforts & ambiance as much as we did here. It was so pleasant, with a beautiful view both inside and out. The decorating is superb, it made us feel as though we were home. There's nothing like the sound of the waves & breezes to instantly make one relaxed. It is amazingly spacious despite being a studio. We just can't say enough.

The grounds have been designed & maintained so well. We are an extended family of 32, all staying at the Whaler. Twenty are grandchildren all of whom were fascinated by the Koi Pond (as were the adults.)

The pool is always perfect, and then there's the beach. The Whaler is such a great place to stay! The ocean, the climate, the proximity of restaurants & shopping, not to mention the availability of so many great activities, makes for a wonderful "home."

Beautiful condo

Great location and beautiful view! We loved the resort area and the beach was wonderful.

The condo is nicely decorated and very comfortable. We had everything we needed. We loved being so close to the shops and all the activities. A great place to stay!

Very nice large Studio

  • 5 of 5

Very nice unit to stay in. Loved all the dimmer switched lights, décor and design choices Jim made when he remodeled this unit. You felt like you were staying in a 5 Star Resort. The view of the pool, center garden area with the koi pond, ocean and Black Rock point from the lanai was really very nice. When we come back to the Whaler it will be in one of Jim's units.

Love the Whaler and condo 1064!!

  • 5 of 5

Our 4th trip to Maui and have stayed in three large hotels during prior trips and wish we had discovered Jim years ago! The accommodations were perfect for two people, but 4 could stay as well. So convenient to shopping and restaurants, but the best part was the view of Black Rock and the ocean from our lanai. We could walk less than five minutes to snorkel at Black Rock and swam with turtles for 14 days. The courtyard at The Whaler boasts a large koi pond and a foot bridge and it was so peaceful walking through there numerous times a day. The sound of the ocean lulls you to sleep. Make your reservations now.
