Recent The Whaler reviews

  • Wonderful location and beautiful accomodations

    "I brought 2 of my kids (ages 21 and 14). We all loved the location so close to the beach and the view of black rock. It was so peaceful to sit on the patio in the mornings (with coffee) and in the evenings (with wine). The condo looks newly remodeled and is gorgeously done. Everything is conveniently located (pool, ocean, dining, shopping, gym, BBQ, and lobby). The Pandora account on the flat screen was a lovely touch when entertaining. The owners were very nice and made everything so easy. It's a great place for families. Would not hesitate to recommend."

  • 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!"

  • Outstanding condo

    "This is a beautiful unit. It is very comfortable and clean. Being able to walk out the sliding glass door to go straight to the pool or beach was very convenient. I recommend this condo and would stay here again."

  • Wonderful Condo

    "My wife and I stayed in this condo four years ago and loved it. This time we brough our kids (5 & 8) so that we could stay longer. The kitchen remodel is wonderful. The unit is very clean, comfortable, and quiet. The Whaler is an excellent property in a wonderful location. We enjoyed the Whaler's village, Black Rock, and of course the Tiki Bar. We enjoyed breakfast in the morning and bbq'd at night. No need to eat out as everything you need is provided in the kitchen and on the property. The tide was very strong while we stayed so we took our kids to Baby Beach which is a 5 min. drive. The reservation process was simple and fast. We will continue to stay in this unit whenever we vacation in Maui."
