  • Awesome Condo!

    "Nothing but superlatives for this condo and for the owners. The condo is beautiful and spacious. We especially enjoyed the oceanfront lanai. Hanging out on the lanai enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning or a beverage of choice watching the sunset in the evening was one of our favorite things to do The kitchen has everything you need. There are also nice beach chairs, umbrellas, and a boogie board that we used daily in the unit. Jeri was especially pleasant to work with. She helped make our trip to Maui a very special one. Thank you so much for your kindness!"

  • The overall property is awesome. It is superbly maintained and the staff are the best.

    "This is our second stay in a Jim Doan property, and as the first time, we could not be happier. Every possible amenity is found in the tastefully decorated suite. The view of the ocean, Black Rock, and the mountains, plus the gardens and pool cannot be beat! We look forward to our next stay!"

  • 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!"

  • Excellent!!

    "Thank you to Cindy and Lesley for a great stay at the Whaler. The apartment was immaculately clean and in great condition with all the amenities, comfortable bed huge bed, great kitchen with all appliances and utensils you could need, great TV for winding down at night etc. The view was spectacular overlooking the gardens and the ocean, whilst reading or having a meal. The Whaler was a great complex to stay at with helpful and very friendly staff. I had never used VRBO before, and Cindy was absolutely fantastic and easy to deal with and so very helpful. It was a really pleasure staying in their apartment. Thank you so much Cindy and Lesley, we would definitely love to come and stay again as it was the highlight of our trip."
