Perfectly located and comfortable condo

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing bad to say. 4th time staying at the Whaler, 1st time staying in this condo. The condo is clean, perfectly located, with very responsive owners. I had a minor hiccup when I got into the condo which turned out to actually not be a problem. I was able to contact the owner and she quickly helped me get things on track. Stayed for 10 days and would stay in this condo again.

Incredible

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely incredible property! My wife and I also stayed at a five-star resort during our trip to Maui but this place was our favorite. Unbelievable location directly on the beach (takes about twenty seconds to reach the sand) and within easy access to restauarants and shopping. If we ever come back this will definitely be our first choice to stay at!

wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't ask for a better location. Four to five restaurants within 100 yards. Central West Maui local. Ocean front, sunsets, sounds of waves, wonderful mornings staring at the ocean. Perhaps the best beach on Maui: Kaanapali Beach. The condo's kitchen was lovely, fully stocked with pans...everything really...paper towels, soaps, sponges, coffee filters...you name it...just like my home. Everything seemed quite clean: kitchen, bathrooms, towels, the bedroom and the sheets and pillows, the living room. You know how when you check into a hotel you look closely and check throughly for any signs of dirt or...whatever might turn you? This place was great. I had no concerns whatsoever, and I'm on the picky side. I would rent this place again without hesitation and be very excited. My concerns were the second floor...people traffic noise outside on the boardwalk...not an issue...at all. The buildings themselves....wonderful. They were clean, easy trash removal, everything worked, wonderful staff, even the overflow parking lot, if you get back too late, is only a pleasant 100 yard walk, if that...maybe 60. We didn't use the barbecues, but others did...and I noticed they were cleaned thoroughly every morning, as were the grounds. And another thing: if you wish to sit on your veranda, ocean front is great if you have an on-shore breeze. But if the breeze is heading out to sea, you will cook. But with a corner unit with a wrap around balcony, if the breeze is off-shore, walk ten feet to your left, have a seat and enjoy the wonderful breeze at your back. As others have stated, it's a bit...dated...I guess, but I honestly didn't have one concern, issue or problem. I thought the place was great. Steve

Whaler 251

  • 4 of 5

Property view and location is just as advertised. Great views and close to everything - Whaler's Village, restaurants ,Black Rock et al.

Some things could be uodated - carpet could be replaced with tile or something more beach friendly. Bathrooms could use a little modernizing as well- faucets are old, tub spout in front bathroom doesn't work ( only shower function)

But the price for location and views are what you are here for- these cosmetic improvements would make it a more "picture perfect" place.

Outstanding location and great view!

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at The Whaler numerous times over the years. We love the location right on the beach and the convenience of being directly next to Whaler's Village. Unit #251 was the absolute best location that we have ever had there! The unit is directly overlooking the beach, and the wrap around lanai gives you incredible views of the beach as well as "Blackrock". Because you are on the second floor, you are literally steps away from the beach, as well as the gas BBQ area. I cannot express how convenient the location is compared to other larger resorts. The unit was very clean and the living area was comfortable. The kitchen was updated and well equipped with pretty much everything you should need, including a blender! The bed was very comfortable. The bathrooms were a little more dated than the previous rooms we have rented at The Whaler, but the outstanding location made up for it. I was a little disappointed that the unit did not have anything for the beach! There was no ice chest, no umbrella, and most importantly no beach chairs! Our past Whaler rooms have always come well equipped with "beach gear". The Whaler does offer complimentary beach chairs at the pool, but they are first come first serve and they are not very comfortable. I ended up renting two "Tommy Bahama" chairs for the week. I realize that this may not be very important for some people, but it would have been extremely nice to have included in the room and would have saved me a few bucks. Overall, we had an outstanding stay and were extremely happy with the room. I would challenge anyone to find a better location with a better view for the price! Thanks Michael and Susie for letting us use your home.

Great location with great beach access.

  • 5 of 5

This unit has a very nice kitchen that is well equiped. The balcony is literelly steps from a great beach. Restaurants, beach activities, convenience store, and full shopping are within 100 yards but you have complete privacy from them. Quiet and beautiful. Cant beat this location. Been to Maui many times. This is my favorite.
