Overview

About the property

Luxurious, Ocean View, 11th Floor Courtyard Studio - Kaanapali Beach

Aloha from the beautiful #1113 at The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach.

We just purchased and listed this condo, so take advantage of our relatively large amount of availability during the Holiday & Peak Seasons!

This gorgeous, ocean view studio condo is newly remodeled and located on the interior, courtyard side of the 11th floor. The lanai provides stunning views of the ocean and the world famous Kaanapali Beach. The beautifully remodeled kitchen is fully equipped, allowing you to enjoy either the beautiful sunrise or sunset on the lanai with a fresh cooked meal.

Unlike many studio condos, our unit has a large, comfortable king size bed! And there is a pullout couch for an additional bed. The condo also has a new flat screen HDTV with cable and DVD player, and there is complimentary WiFi.

The Whaler provides the luxury and convenience of combining the amenities of a hotel complex with those of a personal condominium. The Whaler is comprised of two 12-story towers. Over the last ~3 years, the property has completed over $30 million in renovations, including a newly renovated courtyard with koi ponds, as well as a new hot tub and new tile and railings on the lanais. The Whaler has a beautiful, oceanfront pool, complete with lounge chairs and shaded cabanas, a hot tub, and towel service. Immediately adjacent to the pool deck, is the towel cabana, where you can get a fresh towel to use both at the pool and on the beach. Also on the property is a fully equipped exercise room, business center, sauna, salon, 5 propane BBQs, convenient underground parking, and a bellhop.

The condo is located 11 stories above the paved promenade that stretches the length of Ka’anapali beach. Along this promenade are many of Maui’s premier stores and restaurants, as well as many of the exciting activities available on the island. There is an almost infinite amount of tropical activities at your fingertips. Surfing lessons, paddle-boarding, catamaran excursions, luaus, scuba diving, whale watching, and two top-class golf courses are just some of the many options that are available right outside the condo. If you are feeling even more adventurous, there is a plethora of day-trip adventures you can embark upon. You can take guided, sunrise/sunset tours of Haleakala (or even mountain bike down it!), go zip-lining, horseback riding, hiking, or take a helicopter tour of the island. There is always something incredible to do on Maui, and this condo on Ka’anapali beach is located at the heart of everything.

We also have the adjacent studio -#1115- available for rent (#640485) - http://www.vrbo.com/640485

We also rent a gorgeous, large 2BR/2BA (#452723) ocean front condo and another ocean view studio (#480768). These other two units are across the hall from each other on the 10th floor. So, If you have a larger party and would like additional space while staying in close proximity, please let us know.

Mahalo!

Nice view

  • 3 of 5

I'm torn on the review for this unit. Plusses: fantastic view, quiet, comfortable bed, beach chairs in the closet for use, can't beat The Whaler as a location - we've rented here through VRBO numerous times. Minuses: kitchen could use better cookware, no space for food items except in the fridge. We are a couple who use the heck out of a kitchen when we go. I cook breakfast and make lunch usually each day and we usually eat a few dinners in as well. I was disappointed at the kitchen's contents: 2 coffee mugs only; a saute pan that was not large enough to lay a slice of bacon; no place to put food items that didn't go in the fridge. I'm resourceful, and I made it work. But it could have been easier. The first day I tried to run the dishwasher, it kept giving me some beeping sounds and I could not figure out how to turn the dang thing on! An email to the management was responded to quickly - saying that it wasn't me, it was the dishwasher. Ultimately, the dishwasher had to be replaced, so we were 2 days without one. Hand washing dishes is not the dream on vacation but it wasn't the end of the world. I was disappointed, though, that the cleaning crew who came through before us didn't do a light load to make sure everything was in working order. While we were in communication with the management during the appliance replacement arrangements, they did not check back to see that the work was done and that everything was copasetic. If you are expecting to use a kitchen every day quite a bit, this may not be the unit for you. If not, then don't hesitate to rent this unit.

Quiet, Private, Well Maintained

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay at the Whaler and the second with Black Rock Rentals. I think we have found the perfect room location if a studio suits your needs. Eleventh floor with gorgeous views of the garden area and comings and goings of the water craft make this ideal for two. The sun is never directly on your sitting area as it is on the garden side of tower 2. A short walk down the hall to the stair well make for a perfect spot for those memorable (and sometimes not so memorable) sunset photos. Trash disposal as well as free washer and dryer are available just a couple of doors away. The kitchen is complete with starter quantities of cooking supplies. We had a couple of minor issues that were taken care of by the owners quickly with a phone call or email nearly before I could tell my wife that solution was on the way!

All in all, a great place to stay. Room 1113 will be where we stay the next time to Maui, if we have to adjust our time to match availability. Thank you Chad, Lisa and James of Black Rock Rentals.

P.S. Room 1115 next door is also available if you want two studios side by side.

Sun and Surf in Maui!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time at the Whaler and once again the location, staff and facility are top end. Our little studio condo had everything two adults could need. The kitchen, bathroom and 11th floor view were great, we also liked arriving and have fresh toiletries available to us. Toothpaste, soap, etc. The kitchen was clean and well appointed.

The great thing that the Whaler provides is a nice, quiet setting that is not set up like a "theme park" . No artificial lagoons or towering waterfalls. Just a nice resort with ocean side pool and quick access to the beach.

We will be back again next year.

Excellent. Great location on Kaanapali Beach. Highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

Room had everything we needed from kitchen utensils to extra towels and laundry detergent. Terrific views from balcony. Remodeled bathroom and kitchen were very nice. Gardens and grounds are immaculate and beautiful. Easy access to restaurants and shopping. Both are just a short walk away. Beach path was great for longer walks. Common areas around pool and grills were spacious and well designed. Free use of common washer and dryer is a nice amenity. Black Rock was very helpful in making reservations and follow up during our stay. Excellent fitness center. Modern equipment and well ventilated room. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We liked the condominium owner occupied venue rather than a large resort hotel. Felt less congested and more relaxing than the large resort hotels along the beach path. Great value for a modern beach front room. I would highly recommend the Aston Whaler on Kaanapali Beach.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We felt like we were staying in someone's personal home not a rental condo. The decour was beautiful, it was well equipped, spotless and we could not imagine a nicer place to stay. We needed more nights and had to change condos, what a disappointment. We will keep this units number for our next trip.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

Great unit for a couple who enjoy eating out, walking, the beach or just enjoying the fabulous view from the lanai. There.are lots of good restaurants within walking distance, shopping right next door, tours that leave from the beach in front, a nice pool and beautiful grounds. The check in staff were friendly and helpful and the unit itself was neat and clean. There was a welcome basket waiting for us loaded with goodies and ample dish and laundry soaps, shampoo, beach chairs, umbrellas and lots of books to read. We would definitely recommend this unit and hope to come back again ourselves.
