WOW! Best place at The Whaler!

  • 5 of 5

The Whaler is our favorite Maui hang-out and this was the first time staying in one of Jim's properties - all I can say is it was superb! The room was beautiful, very upscale and modern. The murphy bed was very comfortable and the furnishing were the best we've had at any place we've stayed on the islands. I highly recommend this condo to anyone who wants a relaxing get-away with a fantastic view. Jim was SO easy to work with too - very responsive and accommodating. I took several business cards to hand out to others looking for a nice place in Maui! Great location, close to everything - the pool, beach, snorkeling, shopping and restaurants. We will be back!!

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."

Comfortable studio stay with great views

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our trip to Maui.

We enjoyed our stay at Jim's condo. Situated on the 10th floor, one has a beautiful view. At times we wished for a bigger lanai, but it served its purpose for us, so no big deal. Same with the condo, would almost want a little more space, but when thinking about actual time spent at the condo, then this too was no big deal and Jim does have bigger condos too. There is everything you want. Good selection of spices, some sugar, tea, we left some ground coffee, ziplocks, foil. There are even some paper plates and plastic glasses for when one uses the bbq's downstairs (can get busy, but generally a good flow and everyone shares if not filling the grill, good to meet people from all over!). There is a washer and dryer located just outside the condo (communal use, we did not use it, but it seemed to be free). There are beach chairs, an umbrella, boogie boards and even some snorkelling gear. Quite a nice reef as you enter the sea just in front of the Whaler and sea is warm. The snorkelling at the Black Rock is also great and is a short walk down the beach, we saw a massive turtle. The Whaler village is right next door and one can dine at the Hula Grill or Leilani's and there are some take out restaurants too. Lahaina is a short 10min drive away (if that much). Kapalua is a mere 15min North.

I walked to the Hyatt everyday to attend a conference and this was a 15min brisk walk.

We are definitely planning to return to Maui and will be contacting Jim again!

Oh and the staff at the Whaler also great, the concierge helped us plan a trip and had good restaurant recommendations. One receives towel cards, but if you want fresh towels, you just swap, so easy!

Thank you for a great vacation!
