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.

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!

Great place for a family

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great for my family of 5. We always love staying at the Whaler because of the great beach, pool and proximity to shops and restaurants. The condo is located in the north side which gives you a great view of both the mountains and the beach and is very quiet side of the complex. Also it was nice to have the updated kitchen and bath . We will definitely be back again. Thank you

Vacation of a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our stay in this beautiful condo! It was everything we were hoping and more! The condo, furnishings, and grounds were all immaculate. The kitchen is very well supplied if you are wanting to eat in, which we did a couple of times. Having the snorkel gear, boogie boards, and beach toys available was great! The staff at The Whaler was very helpful and accommodating, especially those working the beach chair & umbrella stand (Michael was the best!).

The location was perfect for us. We were looking for a relaxing, family friendly environment, with more lively activities available when we wanted. Lots of options within a short walk of the condo including great restaurants and shopping. We had a couple of teenagers in our party of 4 and felt perfectly comfortable letting them explore on their own.

We spent a day at the Black Rock Spa, which I highly recommend. It is just a 5 minute walk down the beach. Loved the Hula Grill for casual, beachside dining, and drinks. Island Vintage Coffee, in The Whalers Village shopping center is fabulous and open at 0600 daily - try the Island Latte - YUM! The girls parasailed from the beach right in front of the condo... it was all just perfect and I can't wait to go back soon!

Karin was also a big help, and very responsive to all of my questions leading up to our trip. I would not hesitate to recommend this condo, and definitely plan to book it again myself.

Best condo at the best location

  • 5 of 5

Things go wrong on trips, what's important is how they get resolved. We checked in and noted mildew smells in the bedding and washing machine. A message to the owner triggered a quick response from their management company and all was good within 24 hours. Crisis averted and a most pleasant stay commenced. Wonderful location on the quiet side of the building with a beautiful view. Exceptionally equipped condo in a great building so very close to the best of Kaanapali beach. Awesome restaurants within walking distance, good pool / beachside concierge, great vacation rental. Do it and be happy.

Owner's Response: Thank you for sharing your experience. We appreciate your understanding, as issues can arise. We were pleased that our staff was able to respond immediately to resolve the issue with the linens. We have since changed laundry services and have had a very good experience with the new company. We also replaced the washing machine with a brand new one last month (June 2017). We know how precious vacation time is, and we strive to provide a great experience for our guests! We hope you can return again soon! ~ Karin

Great Condo - Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 4 nights in May and enjoyed every minute! The condo has everything you could need. We have 3 small kids and the condo was spacious and it was wonderful having the updated kitchen to use. We had breakfast on the Lanai each morning. We spent the second half of our stay at a hotel - which was also nice but we missed the space and kitchen!! The Whaler property is beautiful - we spent time at both the pool and beach - and went to Kapula and Lahaina which were a short drive away. We hope to return to Maui some day and would definitely stay again! Thanks Karin!

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights and loved every minute of it. The location is awesome on Kaanapali Beach. The unit is extremely clean. The kitchen has everything you would need for meals. Another bonus were the gas bbq's near the pool, which where always immaculate. The condo is a good size with a large sitting area and a beautiful master bedroom. The lanai was amazing with a view of the ocean. Enjoyed our breakfast there every morning. You are walking distance to Whaler's Village and several restaurants. We enjoyed spending time at the pool and beach. The resort also has a nice gym. Karin was excellent in getting back to me with questions and accommodating any requests. I would highly recommend staying here and would not hesitate to book again.
