Fantastic Condo with an even better location!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for better accommodations than this condo for our vacation. We had the pleasure of spending 9 nights in this perfectly appointed condo for our family. Everything was perfect, clean and very comfortable. The entire staff on the property was friendly and very helpful. The location was another major selling point, and the views were certainly ones to remember. We will certainly be staying here again in the future!

Great experience celebrating 35th anniversary in Maui!

  • 5 of 5

We were both very pleased with our experience at this condo. The amenities were first class, location was perfect, staff very courteous, grounds impeccable and the weather awesome. Jim was great to work with and clearly wants to provide his guests with an awesome experience. He even arranged to have some clothing returned that was accidentally left behind. It was the perfect way to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary! We'd love to come back.

2 Thumbs way up!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have visited Maui at least a dozen times in the past, usually staying at some of the nicest resorts, and I must say, this has been my favorite experience ever.

Although the pictures are great of the condo , in person the space is even more cozy and beautiful .

The layout is wonderful and the kitchen amenities are everything a foodie could ask for!

We enjoyed many sunsets from the balcony spotting several breath taking rainbows ( even 1 double one)

The master bedroom was amazing, and I really enjoyed the over sized bathtub.

And lastly, and certainly not least, the gym facility on property was top notch , and had everything and more one could ever ask for to get a great workout!

Jim, is a delightful, accommodating , and easy going host, who you can tell from the moment you speak with him, just wants to create ease around your entire vacation experience.

I loved this place so much, I've already rebooked for January!

Two thumbs ... WAY UP!!!!

A family of four was very comfortable in this one bedroom home away from home. Better master bed than at home and the Murphy bed was very comfortable for our teenage son. The pull out couch was a little uncomfortable according to our 23 old daughter, but was manageable. One suggestion would be to provide more dinner plates rather than just five because we were finding we needed to do the dishes after every meal. Jim was very responsive to the questions we had, so yes, we plan to use his condos again!

I've stayed at the Whaler numerous times and this unit was by far the nicest! Close to everything and within walking distance - swimming, shopping, restaurants and even an ABC store! Great ocean views and very relaxing. All the pool/beach toys were already there waiting for us to use. Beautiful ocean view and nice large lanai. By the way, the little chocolate candies were an extra special treat! Planning our next trip and will contact Jim Doan - he was great to work with!

Beautiful unit, stunning views

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful unit with everything you could possibly need to enjoy your stay. The double balcony is large, with stunning views. It was the perfect place to enjoy coffee and early morning sun and also a welcome shaded refuge in the afternoon to enjoy a cocktail. The bed was comfortable and having two bathrooms was very convenient. Jim was very quick to respond to our email questions. This was a much better option than the Maui resorts that we have stayed at before. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone coming to Maui.
