A great Whaler unit!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at James' unit the week before Thanksgiving 2017. We are regulars at The Whaler though it had been a couple years since our last visit. We will definitely we calling James the next time we are in Maui.

The unit is beautifully decorated. It was large, comfortable, and the Murphy bed worked out great for our twin four year olds. The property is beautiful and conveniently located next to Whaler's Village.

James also informed us that after we left the appliances were being updated. The kitchen was already fully remodeled, which just shows the owner's attention to detail. The Whaler itself was also recently updated and looks beautiful.

We will definitely be back and I would highly recommend the unit!

This is my 3rd time staying at the Whaler and 1st time in this unit and this owner, Jim. Stayed 12/26/2017-1/03/2018. This unit was awesome and had all the little details that make this perfect. Everything was clean and nice. Had all the amenities. The little extras of providing beach chairs, snorkel gear, beach umbrellas, sand toys and coolers saved me a few hundred dollars for the week. Owner was easy to contact and always responded immediately to any questions. Was a little concerned if this corner unit on the 3rd floor would still provide a good view of the ocean and let me just say "THIS SHOULD NOT BE A CONCERN". View was awesome and 3rd floor was easy to get to. Loved being on the balcony/Lania watching the whales right from the unit!. Thanks for everything Jim

Fabulous!!! Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (mom, dad, 15yr old & 17yr old) spent an unforgettable & glorious week at The Whaler, Unit #374, August 7 -14, 2017. Unit #374 very easily accommodated all 4 of us as there is a queen size Murphy bed in the living room, a king bed in the master bedroom, 2 full bathrooms, a full living room/diving room/kitchen & amazing lanai!! The unit was spotless and well equipped with all we needed - coffee maker, cooking utensils, pots, pans, a washer/drier, etc. James (Jim) also has the unit equipped with 4 sets of snorkelling gear, boogie boards, beach coolers, beach chairs and umbrellas - these were also amazing to have when we went to explore other beaches away from Ka'anapali Beach. The location of The Whaler is amazing proving full beach-front access to Ka'anapali Beach, Black Rock and The Whaler Village down the boardwalk. At the end of the day when we were tired of the beach, The Whaler has an ocean front pool & hot tub (which is actually hot) equipped with lounge chairs that we would move to - perfect to watch the spectacular sunsets!!! Jim Adamson is an amazing owner/renter and went way beyond the call of duty -- he provided tons of very informative and helpful info regarding the island re: its history, where to buy groceries, which local markets to stop at, the airport to use for the puddle jumps we made to Hilo & Oahu, where to golf, and even where to go for surfing lessons for the kids! His intimate knowledge of the island was very helpful and very much appreciated. Jim's attention to detail and guidance contributed to making our trip absolutely wonderful. Would we go back?? - In a heartbeat!!!!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great trip to Maui and this condo didn't disappoint. We were travelling with our two teenagers and thought this central location would fit the bill. Beach and pool access is awesome and the Whaler Village is next door. The condo is outfitted with beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards etc. if you don't want to rent or take with to other beaches. The kitchen is well stocked with kitchen gear should you choose to cook. Jim contacted us before our trip and before we left. We didn't have any issues, but felt he would have been responsive.

You won't find a better place to Stay, Clean and Upgraded - best location

  • 5 of 5

We started searching for a place to rent about 6 months earlier than our vacation. I researched different resorts, condo's & read all reviews on about 30 different places. We are very particular in where we stay. I like things to feel clean & I want to feel safe. It came down to location to Black Rock & needing somewhere comfortable to stay for my husband & I & our 2 older girls. I had narrowed it down to 3 places. After viewing all of the reviews for this particular place along with this one having a king bed & a queen murphy bed & James, the owner being so accommodating, he made the choice easy. We were definitely not disappointed.


It was on the best beach for families, easy to get to, underground parking. Views from the balcony were wonderful, the wrap around balcony was amazing & it was so nice to not have anyone behind you, really just one neighbor for the most part. The condo is equipped with most everything you would need. We brought our own snorkel gear but they do have it there for you to use & we left another mask there to be used by the next bunch. He had 2 boogie boards available & we bought a 3rd & left it there as really, you can't take it back on the plane. My kids & husband did that every single afternoon, they loved the ease of walking down the beach a bit & there were the waves. Furniture was very nice. There is an iron & ironing board if you needed! I spend most of my time in the kitchen & it was wonderful with nice upgrades. The pool was nice, not too big or small - but when we were there it was never crowded. I loved that you didn't need wristbands to go to the pool like other resorts next door. You really felt like it was your place & you weren't just a visitor. The location from the elevator was fantastic, not too far & not right next door for noise. The washer/dryer were in the unit for convenience. My husband did grill almost every single day & he was impressed with them being so clean! The resort provides beach/pool towels down by the pool or at the front desk. Oh, the cooler came in handy on a day trip we took to Hana. We would definitely stay here again without another thought. It was a dream vacation.

The owner was quick to respond to all questions or concerns. I have never used VRBO so it was a bit scary paying so far in advance for all of it. We had no problem with any of the paymnt parts & recvd word our cleaning refund was on it's way back to us about 12 days after we left. A+

Fabulous! Amazing! Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time staying at the Whaler on Kaanapali beach! Jame's unit was perfect for us! It had everything we needed for our stay and more. Beds were very comfortable. The murphy bed worked great for our two teenage daughters. The views from the balcony are fantastic. We really enjoyed eating some of our meals on the balcony and enjoying the view. It was a very short stroll from our unit to the beach, Whaler's village (shopping & restaurants) and Black Rock snorkeling. James had all the beach gear we needed (2 beach umbrellas, 3 beach chairs, snorkel gear, cooler, sand toys, 3 boogie boards and even a fishing pole). We stayed at the Sheraton 4 years ago and that was really nice but we just loved the Whaler and staying in the condo. It was really nice to have our own kitchen and more space to relax. The Whaler is really laid back compared to all the activity going on at the bigger resorts which was fine by us. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The grounds were very beautiful, clean and well kept. It was a very quiet and peaceful place. The beach in front of the Whaler is truly one of the best spots on Kaanapali beach! No big rocks and coral to contend with near the shore like some of the other resorts further south. The pool was also very nice but we spent most of our time on the beach. This is also one of the best spots to watch the sunset in West Maui. Never disappointed! Took some amazing pictures. We would stay here again in a heart beat and hope we can make it back again some day. Thank you James for allowing us to stay in your wonderful condo.
