The Whaler #364
Aloha, Whaler’s Realty asked me to offer some suggestions to prepare your condominium at The Whaler.
I was generally pleased with the furnishings in your condo as they gave a tropical feeling to the space and they were in good shape. The only piece that really needs to go is the white cabinet next to the air conditioning vent. I found a small alternate cabinet that would work well in that space as far as size and color. It is the same size as the existing cabinet.
I would strongly suggest changing out the chandelier over the dining table. It does not work at all with the tropical environment and looks quite old.This fixture matches the black furniture and gives a more updated look.
I would like to replace the small pictures in the entry with one large painting on the opposite wall to cover the control panel. It will be a tropical painting which will give a modern appeal to your first impression upon walking in the door.
something like this painting which is 39”x32”.
I would also like to replace the small pictures in the bathroom with more updated looking paintings.
These are all 16”x12”small paintings that could be used to throw some color into the bath. The bathroom is very dated and I would like to draw attention away from that as much as possible. I would remove the coconut shells and bring in the orchid from the living room add color and life to the space. I would also take down the island relief map to the left of the bed. I really like the picture of the canoes, and the map to the right cheapens that piece. I would suggest moving the map over the toilet to give some interest in there. It is probably water resistant and goes with the tropical theme of the shower curtain. I would also suggest removing the plant behind the chair. It feels hidden and just collects dust. I would like to add a small tropical arrangement to the dining table to add burst of color into the room.
The left side black out drapes has a hem that is coming apart. I would like to re-stitch that.
These minor changes will add a boost to your overall look. Your view is amazing and the property is looking great. I wish you the best luck. You can use this as a road map to do the upgrades yourself, or we can do any/or everything you would like done. Following is a spreadsheet to give you an idea of the estimated expenses to do everything suggested here.
TOTAL = $1,546.88
We are going ahead with these suggestions. Again thank you for viewing our site.
If you have never been to The Whaler and to the Kaanapali Beach area then you are in for an experience of a lifetime. The proximity to incredible beaches, snorkeling, golf, tennis, shopping and restaurants is unmatched.

Why are there no reviews? Once in a while I get this question. I respond that we don't solicit reviews like others do. We don't reward people for reviews and frankly not having a review is in its own right a review. Let me explain. We know when someone is unhappy they tell 10 people and when they are happy they tell one on average. If you think logically don't you think that if people we not happy we would have several bad reviews. I have rented this condo out for over 10 years and average 310 days rented. That's alot of guest. I hope this helps. If not, you may be able to go to our management company vacation-maui.com and check for reviews.
Potential guests who call The Whaler Management Co. without a confirmation number provided by booking through the Owner will experience a much higher room rate. If you have received an estimate and not a confirmation number and call the management company a 20% charge will be added to the room rate total and nothing quoted is promised. Please do not forward my estimate emails to the management company as they will not be honored. The management company charges the owners for what they consider a direct booking at an increased expense. So the bottom line is to remain patient to receive the best deal!
Everything has been updated. New appliances, furniture, bedspread, carpet, all wallpaper removed and newly painted etc...The pictures reflect the changes we have just completed as of Feb 2012.
In my opinion there is not a nicer spot on all of Maui. Take advantage of this great deal before its to late.
The Whaler Tower II - Studio Oceanview Condo #364
Make sure to check out our guestbook comments below
Our non-smoking condominium is located on the world famous Kaanapali Beach. The condo has a sophisticated tropical décor with a king size bed, a futon, dining table, spacious lanai with an ideal location on the third floor of Tower II overlooking the inner courtyard, pool and most importantly, a spectacular view of the ocean and Black Rock.
The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach is a gated, luxury oceanfront resort that is the long-standing first choice for quality and convenience. Our guests will enjoy a variety of activities such as sunbathing, swimming (ocean and pool), snorkeling, tennis, golf, relaxing in the spa, working out in the newly renovated fitness center, and enjoying the barbecue areas.
The Whaler is located right next door to the Whalers Village with great shopping, dining and live entertainment.
Kaanapali Beach is consistently rated one of the best beaches in the United States and has been featured on the Travel Channel and The Whaler is right in the heart of it. The sand is fantastic and there virtually no rocks in or out of the water.
Many condos/hotels claim to be on Kaanapali Beach, but don’t be fooled. Many are located in areas where it’s either rocky or you can’t swim due to coral. At The Whaler, you can walk onto the beach directly in front of the condo and dive in without any worry.
If you wish to go snorkeling, just walk down to the beach and rent snorkeling gear which cost about $6 for two hours. Jump into the water and snorkel around Black Rock which is one of the best areas to snorkel on the entire island and its right out your front door.
Along the beach in front of The Whaler, there is a paved walking path that’s leads you past some great restaurants and the other resorts in the area. Along the path, there are also rental stands where you can get the snorkeling gear or other things like jet-skis, kayaks, etc.
For you golf lovers, golf at the Royal Kaanapali golf course which is directly across the street from the entrance to The Whaler or drive 15 minutes to Kapalua and play the Bay, Village or Plantation Courses. The Plantation at Kapalua is home to the PGA Mercedes Championship which is played in the beginning of January every year.
