Recent The Whaler reviews

  • Beautiful condo

    "My husband and I just returned from our dream trip to Hawaii. We stayed in this unit for 8 nights and spent our 7th wedding anniversary here. I can't say enough about this unit. It is beautiful. You can tell the owner has put a lot of time and effort into this place, right down to the dolphin toilet paper holder. My husband and I spent all our time in the water in Maui and greatly appreciate all the detail paid to ocean life in this condo. The bed is very comfortable, the bathroom and dressing area beautiful. The kitchen is like brand new and the view really tops everything off. For a studio, it is more than big enough for 2 people. The Whaler is in the middle of the most beautiful beach we saw on Maui and is right next to Whaler Village, which allows for shopping and restaurants within walking distance. If you snorkel or dive, Black Rock is about a 5 minute walk down the beach and is beautiful with abundant sea life. We even saw 2 white tip shark here! My correspondence with the owner was always quick and he was very helpful, even recommending which luau to go to (we took your advice and went for our anniversary and it was fabulous, thanks!!) The whole vacation was awesome and I truly believe it was because we were in a good location and had a beautiful condo to go home to each evening. We hope to spend our 10th anniversary in Maui and I would love to rent this unit again. Mahalo"

  • Great condo for families

    "Super condo for 2 couples or family with children. We recently stayed in Kurt's condo (two couples and an infant) and were very happy with the accommodations. The ground floor condo is in a fantastic location at The Whaler (the lanai is huge and private with plenty of room to eat meals outside), with easy access to the beach, bbq's, and a two minute walk to restaurants and shops at Whaler's Village. The condo is equipped with everything you could require to prepare meals, and the in suite laundry is a huge bonus. Kurt, the owner of the condo, was very quick to respond to emails and requests (we needed a crib and highchair which would not be standard equipment in the condo, but Kurt ensured both were available for us to use when we arrived), we really appreciated the follow up and attention he provided. We would definitely recommend his condo to others."

  • 25th Anniversary in Hawaii-Dream Come True

    "My husband and I were very fortunate to celebrate our 25th anniversary in Hawaii (9 nites in Maui and 3 nites in Oahu) and after much research, chose to stay at the Whaler-we chose very well as had the great pleasure of staying in Linda's condo unit #307. Beautifully decorated, great views, very comfortable bed, and had all the amenities one could possibly need/want. Found in the afternoons we were drawn to returning to our temporary amazing home and enjoying our lanai, as opposed to sitting on the beach or at the pool. Just so peaceful, beautiful, and relaxing. Being on the third floor was very convenient- no need for using the elevators as the stairs were so handy. It was our first time in Hawaii and thoroughly enjoyed every second. The people, the culture, and the beauty of the Island, touched us deeply and amazing memories were made. Hope to return in the future and would most definitely book to stay at one of Linda's units again. Thanks for sharing your beautiful place with us."

  • Home Away From Home!

    "We have been staying at the Whaler within various units for the past 20 years. While we have enjoyed all the units we have stayed in, this one was easily our favorite. As the description notes, the unit is tastefully furnished and has lots of wonderful artwork. The appliances are outstanding. A pleasant surprise was the little touches such as nice mobile fans, a couple small beach chairs and really nice boogie boards. The location of this unit is a bit of a conundrum. This corner location above Whalers Village offers sweeping views of the beach and whatever action is going on at the village, so you hear the outdoor music from the Hula Grill, Leilanies and the periodic events in the village itself. This was a plus for us since everything wraps up early. We also liked that it offers more privacy since you don't have the other tower directly across from you as you have on the courtyard side. The wind is not as strong in this location and the only direct sun on the lanai is in the late afternoon. On paper, this would be my favorite location within the entire complex. Now, the negative is that depending on the wind, the kitchen exhaust for the adjacent Hula Grill can be overpowering on the lanai. If you sit on the lanai, your hair and clothes are going to smell as if you have spent several hours in front of a bar-b-que grill. Also, you can't really open up on those days since the unit will smell for days. It all depends on the wind direction. We made the best of it and feel that the positives outweigh this one negative aspect. Also, Whalers Village is undergoing major renovations for the rest of this year. Lots of construction-related noise for any unit located on the south side of tower 2 during working hours, including weekends. It wasn't a big deal for us since we visit fairly routinely. If this was my first trip to Maui, or the trip of a lifetime, etc., staying on the south side of tower 2 at this time might dampen things a bit....if you let it! Management company was nice to work with and was responsive to a minor maintenance issue we discovered when we checked in. Overall, we loved this unit, and appreciate all the owners have done to make it a welcoming place to stay. Can't wait to return!"
