About the property

Condo, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Aloha! Welcome to our condo at the beautiful and world-famous Ka'anapali Beach and the Whaler! The Ka'anapali Beach is a destination featured on the Travel Channel, and rated as one of the best beaches in the USA. The Whaler is a popular luxurious ocean front resort in the heart of the Ka'anapali Beach, a pristine, white-sand beach, perfect for swimming.

Ideally located on the seventh floor (Unit # 764) of the gated Whaler Tower II, and professionally managed by the Whaler Realty Management Company, this unit is a cozy and cheerful studio condominium, with spectacular views of the ocean, the Black Rock, and the rolling hills. As you enter the condominium, you will be greeted by these views, as reflected by mirrored walls. Of course, the views get more spectacular as you approach the spacious Lanai, which overlooks the courtyard and the pool, and provides a spectacular view of the Black Rock which is located at the end of Ka'anapali Beach.

Our condominium has recently gone through a complete remodeling of the bathroom and the kitchen including granite countertops. The condo is equipped with a California King-sized bed, and modern rattan type of furniture, including a Queen-sized sofa sleeper. Amenities include a full supply of linens and towels, a fully-equipped kitchen including all utensils and appliances, and beach chairs. Washer and dryer are available on the same floor of the building right around the corner. The Whaler provides additional amenities including pool and spa, a fitness center, tennis courts, and barbecue areas, to make your stay enjoyable. Wireless internet connection is available free of charge.

The condo is literally steps away from the rock-free beach and the ocean, shopping at the Whaler Village, and great dining. A paved walking path stretching the entire length of Ka'anapali Beach will take you to the Black Rock, a string of great resorts along the coast, and live entertainment.

The Black Rock is believed by ancient Hawaiians to be the site from which their spirits 'jumped off' or left this world to join their ancestors. If there were no ancestors to greet the spirits, they would wander the earth causing mischief! The Black Rock area is highly popular for snorkeling and scuba diving, especially among the locals, as the rock forms a great reef wall.

Play great golf at the Royal Ka'anapali golf course adjacent to the Whaler, or at any one of the three championship courses in Kapalua, The Bay, The Village, and The Plantation, just minutes away by car. The Plantation golf course is home to the Mercedes Championship every January.

Whether you're on your honey-moon or just a vacation, come stay with us for an unforgettable Maui experience!

The Whaler recently underwent major renovations to maintain its status as a world class resort property. This included remodeling of the pool, spa, and the adjacent deck, the courtyard, tennis courts, elevators, and the lanai railing (for safety), tile, and planter boxes. All construction activities are now complete.

Can not wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

Our room was GREAT unit 764 was clean, beautiful and with an awesome view of the ocean and the mountains. The only thing I would change is add curtains along with the sheer ones to keep all the light out at night. We are looking forward to staying in this until every year if at all possible :-) The event hut by the pool has the best employees....Jennifer, Derek and Raffel were awesome!!! The front desk was great also!!! We have been staying at the whaler for 3 years and love the property. Can not wait to come back next year!!!

Great honeymoon getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We were there for 10 days and the place was extremely convenient to other activities and restaurants on the island. We rented a car for a couple of days and biked down the volcano and did some ATVing in the old sugarcane fields. We are located in a row of resorts that we could easily walk to. There were a variety of restaurants at Whaler's Village next door and at each of the resorts. Plus the shops were nice to look in too.

The apartment was good for a married couple. We had just enough room but if you have children or another couple, you would definitely would want a bigger place. The view from the lanai was awesome and my husband liked feeding the birds in the morning while drinking his coffee. The bed was comfy and it was nice to have TV with cable and a DVD player right there.

The Maui Revealed book was helpful for choosing what activities to do. On the island there are a ton of people trying to sell you timeshares with "free or discounted" activities. That was annoying, so we stuck to using the book and speaking with the Concierge at the front desk. The pool, hot tub, and fitness center were awesome. The only drawback was that our condo was right next to where they drop the trash. It didn't bother me but it bothered my husband. Also, on a couple of the nights there was a rowdy couple above us. My husband said he heard the cops one night but I didn't hear a thing. Other than that it was quiet. I think it was a freak occurrence because the majority of the people at the complex were older people.

The bathroom was fine but the sink water took a while to get hot, and the bathroom sink drain was a little slow. The water in the kitchen and shower was hot without a problem. We couldn't figure out why the bathroom sink water took a while to get hot. The kitchen was great but it needs better knives. They were so dull it was hard to cut the pineapple.

Overall we would stay there again. It was very convenient and not pricey. Parking was only $12/night and it wasn't as busy as the bigger resorts. That is what we liked since we wanted pricey and an easy walk to our condo. Also the elevators worked well.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Whaler 5 times, this is our first time in this unit. It has a great view of both the ocean and the mountains. They also have thought of the extras - boogie boards, lawn chairs, coolers, board games and even books to read. Very convenient with the kitchen as well. We had a wonderful time!

Great View - Great Location!!

  • 4 of 5

This unit is priced right. It has a great views as you can see of Black Rock, the beach and the mountains. The full kitchen was perfect for two people, unit would be lil crowed for more than that. The Lanai is great for breakfast or evening cocktails. The bathroom is lil outdated and could use a touchup, bed was comfy and unit was quiet for the most part. Location is perfect for all the activities on Kaanapali, Hula Grill is the best for happy hour and it's right next door! We really enjoyed our stay here, you will not be disappointed..... Aloha
