Gorgeous condo in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean and well kept. The Whaler was gorgeous. Beach right outside and Whalers village next door with shops and restaurants. Everything - groceries, drug stores, downtown Lahaina all within a short driving distance. Would definitely go back and stay at this place.

This condo is stunning! My wife and I try to spend two weeks in Maui every year, and I assure you that we have found our permanent residence. Great owner, great price, and immaculately kept. The pictures don’t give this condo's size justice. This unit is 100% newly remodeled, with a kitchen that has everything you need for preparing meals. My wife and I enjoyed starting our mornings with breakfast and coffee on the balcony while listening to the waves. You will be just steps from Kaaanapali Beach, with numerous restaurants along the beach front. The living room offers a large flat screen TV, with a really comfortable couch to just lounge and unwind. If you like good food and beer, Maui Brewing Company and Kohola Brewery are just down the road or an $8 Lyft ride away. In addition to the AMAZING condo itself, we found the Whaler Resort and staff to be welcoming and friendly. Gym was better than most resorts, offering you many options. Parking was never an issue, and the pool was a fun change from the beach for nightly dips.

Perhaps one of the most impressive part about this condo was Laura. She was amazing to deal with during the booking. Last minute, our flight home got moved from 3 to 10pm. Laura was great and immediately contacted the Whaler and set us up for a late check out, with no questions asked - something we were so thankful for. Also, Laura has a second unit, #811, in building B that looks just a nice. So if you want to change up the view year to year with this amazing host, it’s definitely an option.

Thank you, Laura.

Comfortable Unit in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth visit to the Whaler, and this unit was the nicest we have stayed at. It was very well equipped and comfortable for four people. The location is amazing - with easy access to the pool, beach, snorkling, and dining. The best part was sitting out on the lanai, enjoying the beautiful view and hearing the surf - we did this several times a day!
