Recent The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach reviews
"This unit is immaculate and beautifully decorated with lots of high-end extras. Location is perfect, and we especially enjoyed the ocean view on the balcony. We were pleasantly surprised to find it so well stocked
( even condiments, spices, laundry detergent, light hardware, etc, they thought of everything! We've rented other condos before without as much as a grain of salt). The owner was very pleasant and easy to deal with.
We'll be going back next year for sure!"

"Thanks Maui Beachfront for taking such good care of us on our recent trip to Maui. Booking, checking in and out, and even answering a few dumb tourist questions, you guys were great (and helpful). The condo was nice, clean, and kept, exactly what we'd hoped for. This resort's location is prime. While we lounged most of our stay, it was nice to have some many options for fun surrounding us."

"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!"
