Guestbook comments from the owner

Love the location of The Whaler! Enjoyed the beach and pool. Property was very clean. Nice area and grounds. The condo is large and comfortable.

We used the beachfront BBQ almost every night to grill out. Owner provided beach chairs & umbrella, which was nice. Great vacation; would definitely recommend this condo.

Perfection!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from 8 nights in maui. The condo was perfect in every aspect. Every morning I would have my cup of coffee on the lanai and enjoy the ocean view, nothing like it. Cooking in the kitchen for our family of four was easy! Karin had seriously everything we needed, right down to the barbecue utensils.

And, having a one bedroom was no issue with my 12 yr old and 14 yr old boys. They slept great on the most comfortable sleeper sofa I've ever seen and on a large, raised aeroBed. It worked out perfectly.

The condo's furniture looked new and the units remodel was just really really nice! Fluffy towels, soft sheets, coolers, boogie boards, nothing was left out.

In addition to the condo, Karin had the best communication. She was always very prompt to return my emails and answer all my questions.

I wish I were there right now. Can't wait to go back for our next get away!

Kaanapali is the best beach on Maui and this condo at the Whaler enhanced our holiday.

The condo was very clean, quiet, and spacious. Very nice kitchen and bathroom renovations. Good sized bedroom.

It was great having in suite laundry and an oversized lanai (when compared to most Hawaii hotels) Underground parking provided quick access to elevators. The Whaler property is very well maintained with professional and courteous staff.

Would definitely book again and never going back to a hotel suite.

Better than expected. A real find!

  • 5 of 5

I am sitting on the lanai as I type this review, wishing we did not have to leave! Hawai’i is wonderful. That goes without saying. The same goes for Kaanapali beach, which this property overlooks. The location of this condo is perfectly convenient: rent a cabana at the beach for the day, walk 10 minutes to Black Rock for spectacular snorkeling, walk 3 minutes to Whalers Village for shops and dining, use the beach trail for a brisk morning walk (we did a 2.2 mile loop), jump on one of the charter whale watching cruises that leave from the beach, or take a short 2 mile drive to Lahaina for tourist shops and eateries. Locationwise, Kaanapali is our favorite fun and sun beach location anywhere. You wont be disappointed.

The splendid location allows for the accommodations to be compromised and still enjoy a vacation. With that in mind, we prepared ourselves to not expect the condo to be a nice as the photos. We were wrong! The condo is MUCH NICER than the photos. First, it is spacious. Lots of space for a 1 bedroom. It is nicely decorated. You dont feel like this is done on a budget. Very high quality. Most shocking, though, was how well the condo was stocked with all of the basics possibly needed (i.e. toiletries, cooking supplies). The kitchen is equipped to support any cook’s needs with gadgets galore. The closet includes coolers, snorkels, and swim fins of various sizes. Supplied towels are new and of high quality. I suspect that the owners must use this condo quite a bit themselves, because it is so well equipped.

For sleeping, we are a family of three. The king bed in the bedroom was extremely comfortable. The sofa folds out for a bed also. We used it for our college-aged daughter and she survived.

The lanai is where we spent most of our time when at the condo. It is very large (maybe 20’ x 8’) and equipped with a patio table and 4 chairs, a lounge, and a comfy sitting chair.

The wifi and cable tv are both good. But, we didnt use tv much at all.

Lastly, I give very high marks to the Whaler resort, where this condo resides. It is a simple property and not as extreme as the Sheraton down the beach, but it is well kept and the employees are very accommodating. I would be proud to own a place here myself.

This property is a gem. Whether using for a base to explore Maui or for staying on the property to just relax, this is a perfect fit. We hope to return someday! Thank you!

Condo by the beach

  • 5 of 5

Spent 4 quick nights at this well furnished and stocked condo. Met lots of friendly happy "neighbors" who have repeated their vacation at Whalers for several years. Location next to Whalers Village was great for dining and retail therapy. We walked the sandy beach every morning and watched sunset from pool or hot tub. There's an easy 2 mile walk along Kaanapali Beach sidewalk in front of many hotels and resorts. Condo has Beautiful new kitchen and bathroom. Everything was in top shape. Thank you for sharing your home with us. Next time we have to stay for a month!!

Wonderful property!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is amazingly clean and updated!! We enjoyed the easy walk to Whaler Village and other restaurants. The only part we didn't really love was the view of the ocean is very obscured, but we enjoyed watching the moon rise over the mountains each evening. All in all, it was great!!!
