THE WHALER -- THE BEST - 5 STAR -- LOOK NO FURTHER -- UNIT 312

Kaanapali Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

......Just a few comments from our happy guests:

- 'We are Whaler vacation 'regulars' and this is, by far, the nicest unit we have stayed in. We're booking our next vacation reservation for this unit before we leave for home.'

- 'Our most memorable Hawaiian vacation. We'll be back to the Whaler on future trips, and we'll ask for your unit every time.'

- 'We loved the DVD movie collection for entertainment after dinner.'

- 'Your kitchen is amazing. I took photos for ideas for my own upcoming kitchen remodel.'

Seeking a premium luxury condo for a special vacation . . . . . WHALER UNIT 312, located on the more comfortable and quiet (North) side on the third floor of Tower 1, is a garden and ocean view, five-room suite of luxury accommodation rooms in The Whaler on Ka'anapali Beach, the 'Grand Lady' of resort condominiums centrally located on the beach rated by many travel magazines as the best beach on Planet Earth . . . Ka'anapali Beach, Maui.

For that special Hawaiian vacation, WHALER UNIT 312 is spectacular and has recently completed a half-year full renovation for our guests. It is a 5-STAR resort apartment in every respect. Newly appointed with an updated kitchen, featuring G.E. Cafe and SubZero appliances and beautiful granite counter tops. The gourmet kitchen and both luxury baths are updated with extensive use of elegant mable tiles and best quality cabinets and fixtures. The apartment has a convenient wine chiller-refrigerator and cabinet bar for entertaining. The master bath features a designer marble-tiled 'shower chamber' with opposing 'his and hers' Grohe shower heads and controls.

Built of steel-reinforced concrete walls, ceilings and flooring, the towers of The Whaler are structurally superior and measurably more quiet than many of the surrounding resorts. As an added measure to further assure guest privacy and satisfaction, extensive use of the newest high-tech soundproofing materials was installed within the bath walls and layered on all water pipes during the recent remodel of the apartment to minimize audible water pipe sound and any other noise from transferring into Unit 312 from surrounding apartments. Unit 312 is a very quiet suite of rooms -- restful enjoyment of the apartment is assured.

Unit 312 is a comfortable one master bedroom suite (extra sleeping accommodations by use of the convertible sofa), with two elegant baths, this suite of rooms has a fabulous view of the beach and beachwalk and the Pacific Ocean beyond, mystical Black Rock (a sacred Hawaiian volcanic rock feature of Ka'anapali Beach), and spectacular, picture-perfect Maui sunsets directly from our lanai. The comfort, convenience and decor panache of Unit 312 does not disappoint.

Furnishings are luxury quality throughout, including several Hawaiian heirloom pieces made of rare koa wood. Unit 312 also contains a museum-quality Polynesian art and artifact collection for guest enjoyment. Available for guest use are two flat screen TVs with DVD players and home theatre sound system with a 70+ DVD feature film collection with favorite movies of past Oscar award performances, action, adventure, history, westerns, fantasy, and favorite animation features for the children for fun evenings of nightly 'family film festivals' and on those rainy days when the kids can't play outside.

Possibly the best luxury quality accommodations that The Whaler on Ka'anapali Beach has to offer . . . Unit 312 will make your Maui vacation a joy to remember.

BEST UNIT IN COMPLEX!!

  • 5 of 5
AWFUL AWFUL!! Simply tragic...that we had to leave, that is...

Let me say first that I do not do ANYTHING casually, certainly not vacationing for thousands of dollars. I do my research, and if **I** liked this place, it must be good!! Other than that, there is nothing more to add (but I will) to the other glowing reviews: 5 star unit, 5 star resort, 5 star beach, 5 star location, 5 star everything!!

This unit: we stayed here with another family who were on floor 7, and way back. Our view was stellar, there wasn't as much wind (higher you go, windier it gets) and they said, "Your place is posher than ours!" which does not show in the photos. My suggestion to owner is to buy a better camera or hire a professional coz the unit is MUCH nicer than these pictures portray!

We've stayed at the Whaler before in a HORRID unit. (Each condo is operated by different owners.) This owner OBVIOUSLY installed the best frig (husband cried when we left) and the best furnishings (slept like a baby, the 10 y/o was very comfy on the designer EASY PEASY blow-up bed & 9 y/o was happy on the comfy couch-don't pull it out, just sleep on it folded up) and best shower (fancy!) and even pots/pans. It's kind of sad when your vaca place is nicer than your home!!

The only thing the unit didn't have that we needed was a colander. I think you can live your whole life without a colander, so that does not deter from anything. That is REALLY the only thing I can say about this unit that isn't 100% positive!

To sum up: Top notch customer service from Carole, the owner, via email. She answered ALL my hundreds of questions, no matter how trivial. Top notch service at front desk and throughout unit. Beach, steps away from unit, is my #3 favorite Maui beach (#1 Napili, 15 mins drive away and #2 Kapalua 18 mins) with 9/10 y/o appropriate waves in summer and teen/adult appropriate waves in winter. (Although last Christmas they were fine for my kids)

JUST BOOK IT, you won't be sorry!!!!

Tip: Splurge one time and eat at the golf course Roy's...stellar!! (But expensive) For other days, just go to the Okazuya in Honokowai (on the way to Napili anyways) and have the ono fish or the spaghetti with meatballs (yes!) or the YUMMY fries. Hula Grill and Leilani's (pork topped nachos, please, and mai tai) are a mere minutes walk away. (Take the short cut by lobby, chain link gate into Whaler's Village Shopping Center, not as hot or crowded and faster)

VERY NICE UNIT

  • 4 of 5
we just stayed 13 nights in this unit. everyone thing was great with one exception. we had our 2 -20 somethings with us and they found the hid-a-bed very uncomfortable. BUT we found 2 airbeds in the closet and they slept on those the whole time. it wasnt ideal but they said it was OK because they were in Hawaii. They paddle boarded out front and the Whaler matched a cheaper rate of $25.00 that another place offered down the beach.
also the patio sliders were very tight and hard to slide, would suggest some wd40 or similar. we would definitely stay here again. Mahalo.

BETTER THAN ADVERTIZED

  • 5 of 5
We lived in Hawaii for 3 years and have traveled back 13 times. This was our first stay in this unit at the Whaler, and it is the best condo we have ever stayed in. The location was quiet, the view from the lanai incredible, the condo beautiful and immaculate, and the owner kind and helpful. We will return to Maui and hope to stay in this unit again.

LOVED THIS CONDO

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this condo Aug 4th -13th and had a great time. We were very pleased with the condo and the Whaler Resort. The unit is very clean and decorated nicely. We traveled with our 15 and 20 year old sons and there was plenty of room. My 15 year old slept on the couch( didn't pull it out to a bed) and my 20 year old slept on the airo bed. The queen bed was very comfy and I loved the pillows(would love to know if you know where you got them). There was a much better view from the lanai than I had expected. Great view of Blackrock. There were beach chairs there that we did take down and use along with some snorkeling gear. The pool area and hottub were also nice and the boys spent quite a bit of time in the pool socializing with other guests. Everyone was very nice and in the vacation spirit. Having the Whaler Village next door was a positive for us. Lots of good places to eat and Yogertland! We had a great time and we definitely would recommend this unit.

BEAUTIFUL CONDO - PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This condo is even better than it looks in the pictures. It is beautifully decorated and immaculate. It is well equipped with everything needed for a relaxing vacation. We stay six days and hated to leave. The location is fantastic - plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance. The Hula Grill and Barefoot Bar was one of our favorites. The beach is beautiful, the water calm enough for swimming and there is decent snorkeling right off the beach. We loved just sitting on the lanai and looking at the ocean . One night we didn't feel like sitting in a restaurant, so we went next door to the Whalers Village food court and got take out to eat on our lanai. The pizza restaurant makes a really good "plate". If you haven't had a hawaiian "plate lunch", this is a good place to try it. If you get tired of Kaanapali, Lahaina town is only a 10 minute drive away. I will definitly recommend Unit 312 to anyone who comes to Maui. I hope to go back myself sometime soon.

LOOK NO FURTHER!!!

  • 5 of 5
I rented this condo as an add on to my time share for two weeks. We absolutely loved the view from the lanai, and having a second bathroom was just heavenly. The king size bed was extremely comfortable, and the fully equipped kitchen wanted for nothing. There was even a wine fridge and closet with stemware, where the board games are located. Although we did not spend too much time in the condo, it was more comfortable than the time share that I stay annually.Carol, we want to thank you again for your hospitality. We will look for your condo the next time we stay in Maui...
