Best Vacation EVER

  • 5 of 5

Escaping winter's grasp on the Canadian prairie, our family enjoyed the vacation of a lifetime in Maui this January. We had the luxury of staying at the marvelous Whaler on Kaanapali. Being on the 12th (top) floor in this spacious, tastefully decorated corner suite was truly remarkable. Spacious is a bit of an understatement, as the suite was shockingly large with a superb design conducive to both privacy and socialization. Tasteful is also a bit of an understatement, as the suite’s decor was as breathtaking as the beach/ocean view that was just steps away. The children enjoyed the large pool and hot tub. In fact, they spent as much time at the pool as in the ocean. I asked the children what they enjoyed most about our trip and their quick reply was “the place we stayed, it rocked! When can we go back?”. We all enjoyed the modern appliances, comfortable beds, and revitalizing showers. The suite was luxurious whilst also being comfortable, welcoming. It was very convenient to be so close to Whalers' Village and the trendy restaurants/entertainment lining the Kaanapali boardwalk. The sunsets were glorious but even these paled in comparison with the acrobatic shows of the Humpback whales in the distance. The staff members at the Whaler were courteous and helpful, always ready to ensure our stay was pleasurable. If the question is, 'would you stay there again?' my immediate and emphatic response would be 'in a heartbeat.'

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for an absolutely amazing review. I don't know if our description captures as many of the benefits of this unit and property as your review. We may be a little biased but we do feel this location might be the sweetest spot on the island. It was a pleasure having you as our guest. Please do return again in the future.

Spring break in Maui

  • 5 of 5

We we're excited the moment we stepped into the unit, it is beautiul!! There are the most amazing views from every room, we especially enjoyed morning coffee on the balcony watching whales in the distance. There was

plenty of comfortable space for our family of 5, lovely large dining table, large beautiful fully equipped kitchen.

Spacious bedrooms with ensuite. The pool area has lots of lounge chairs in the sun or shade, even has a separate area for barbequing with table and chairs, we liked using the grill in the units kitchen. The gorgeous beach is just steps away. The Whaler is close to Black Rock to snorkle or to Whaler's Village for shopping and restaurants. We had a fabulous family vacation and would love to go back again!

Luxury at its finest

  • 5 of 5

Stunning ! Absolutely fantastic. From the moment you enter, it is as though you have been transported to another world. Every amenity you wish for from a beautiful kitchen, fully functional office, beautiful bedrooms and luxury at every turn. World class views from every window, and there are lots of them, as well as a deck that runs the length and width of the unit. Readily accessible to Black Rock, Whaler Village and one of the best beaches in the world. Sunsets are beautiful yet different every night.

Christmas in Maui

  • 5 of 5

I planned this trip to Maui with my family for two years. We wanted to spend a Christmas in a different setting than Provo. Beaches for my kids and golf courses for my hubby had a nice sound to it. Well we came away satisfied. The condo was actually much bigger than we thought when we booked it. Cable TV and internet, DVD player, and a full kitchen really allowed for us not to feel like we had to sacrifice the normal comforts of home. The pool on site is newish looking, and made for a nice alternative to the beaches for the kids. Really impressed with the booking agency for this condo. They made the booking and check-in process easy as can be, and as a bit of a clean freak, I was happy at the cleanliness of the place. I would love to make this a yearly family tradition.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind review Kelly. We make a tremendous effort that those comfort's from home that you speak of, are outfitted to our condos. We want families to not feel like they have to sacrifice to go on vacation. Thanks for being our guest, and please do return.

Had a fun stay

  • 5 of 5

Came to Maui with My Family. We had a great time. I golfed three rounds on the nearby golf course, and it has to be one of the most beautiful courses in the country. The condo was spacious. It's a bit of a drive from the airport, but for us the location and condo was worth it.

Car: recommended

The Whaler Resort is located directly in the heart of the famous Kaanapali Beach.Although a car is an added convenience it's not absolutely necessary to have while staying in this central resort area. There is a convenient boardwalk that runs the length of Kaanapali Beach making it easy to access many of the beach-side kiosks that offer rentals of beach toy rentals, kayaks,surfboards,boogie boards and more. Walk next door to the largest outdoor shopping mall Whaler's Village which features boutique shopping, art galleries, grocery mart, and a myriad of dining choices. If considering any water excursions most catamaran trips leave directly from our beach!Lahaina Towne rates the #1 tourist attraction on Maui is less than 10 miles south of Kaanapali. A charming waterfront town filled with historical sites, shopping, restaurants, first class art galleries and live entertainment.
