Under cover parking, steps to the beach, pool, Whaler's Village, and a close walk for great snorkeling. The condo is large and very comfortable. Even the queen sleeper sofa was comfortable. The lanai is very large! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.

                                                                          Great location and nice condo

                                                                          Summer A.

                                                                          Condo was very nice. Great location and close to shopping. Right on the beach- Kaanapali beach was fantastic and black rock was a great spot for snorkeling near by within walking distance.


                                                                          Exceptionally clean and well stocked with everything you may need to enjoy your visit! Beautifully remodeled. Truly enjoyed our visit.

                                                                          Mark L.Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

                                                                          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!

                                                                          Mike S.Liberty Lake, Washington, U.S.A.

                                                                          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!
