  • 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!"

  • Maui Kaanapali Villas

    "We were pleased with the ease at which we could book our dates. The unit was beautiful and well equipped with everything that we needed. The site has beautiful pools, the ocean right there, and a fabulous bar and restaurant on the property. I highly recommend staying in this unit. If future dates are desired for another stay, the owner is easy to reach and to work with. They remember you and make you feel like dear friends."

  • Perfect Family Vacation!

    "We had such an AMAZING stay at this beautiful condo!! This was the perfect place for our family to spend time exploring this incredible island . It is obvious the time and energy Jill and Terry have put in to making this unit a home and keeping it so nice, clean, and fully stocked! We appreciate all the attention to detail given to making sure everything we might need was there and available. It was so great to have the beach chairs, noodles and boogie boards available for our use as well as everything we could need and more in the kitchen! We also could not believe how well we slept while on this trip... the best we have ever slept away from home. The bed and the bedding/pillows were ultra comfortable. As this was our first trip to Maui, we couldn't be more pleased with the beauty, location and accommodations the Honua Kai and specifically this condo offered!! Thank you, Jill and Terry, for your hospitality and for all your wonderful organization/communication. You really helped make this a fabulous week for our family!"

  • Perfectly Enchanting and a rare find!

    "This is a rare find. Not only are Rod and Debi most gracious and accommodating, but their unit is furnished with top quality everything. No second-hand dishes, pots, pans, furniture or junky towels. Their love and care for this second home is evident in every single thing in it. It is clean, clean, and clean! The location is just across the street from Whaler's Village, and close to several very nice beaches. We prefer this condo to the big, crowded, pricey hotels on the beach as it is homey yet a quick drive to many great beaches. As an example, we swam with several very large sea turtles at the public beach near the post office and enjoyed watching whales while sitting at the public beach by the airport up the road. Good snorkeling can be found everywhere from Kaanapali to Napili. Shopping in Lahaina and whale watching tours are only a 10 minute drive away. Even internet access has been upgraded in the unit in response to guest request. The pool at the condo is very close to the unit as well and is very nice. We have been to Maui over a dozen times and at least the last five have been to Rod and Debi's Enchanting Maui in Unit K102 at the Kaanapali Royal. Thank you Debi and Rod for another great vacation stay!"
