Welcome to The Whaler Unit 514 on Kaanapali Beach - the best beach resort in the world! We are located in the Whaler Resort which has just received the coveted AAA 3 Diamond status and is currently top ten ranked resorts in Lahaina. Our condo has been completely remodeled to “A” Status including king size Serta Presidential Suite bed, fully furnished with designer touches including 37' flat panel HD 1080P LCD TV, blu ray player, gourmet stainless steel appliances, stunning upgraded granite counters and cherry wood cabinets in the kitchen and bath. You will enjoy the walk-in frameless glass shower tiled in travertine with beach pebble accents and the luxury of “his” and “hers” sinks in the vanity.

Record all your favorite sports and TV show for later viewing after you beach time and island activities with our free HD DVR service.

New! Recent updates include new travertine tile floor and new plush carpeting.

NOTE: Our condo rate includes daily maid service (15 minutes/day) guaranteeing that you won’t EVER have to vacuum, launder your towels or have to make the bed during your stay, no extra cleaning or check-in fees, free broadband internet and WiFi, and is managed by ASTON HOTELS and RESORTS property management providing 24 Hour On-Site, Front Desk and Hotel Operator Services to ensure that your needs are met at any time, day or night, and in a timely manner -- amenities not always available with other condos at Whaler.

The recently landscaped courtyard with dramatic waterfall and koi pond, welcoming porte cochere drive up entrance, remodeled pool, spa and garage will make your vacation experience better than ever!

**NOTE** If the dates you are looking for are already reserved for my condo unit 514, please contact me for availability at another Whaler 'A' rated studio. Since my property is managed by ASTON HOTELS and RESORTS, I have access to special 'owner referral' rates! I can also request availability for 1 or 2 bdm units.

***NOTE*** Please contact owner for AAA, Military, Government employee or '50 years old and older' rates

Wake up every morning to the sounds of the waves on the beach and birds in the trees just outside your private lanai. Each evening relax on the bar height chairs and table of your private lanai, enjoy a Mai Tai and watch the Hawaiian diver dive off the cliff at Black rock at sunset - a great way to start your night time activities before heading out to dinner at a beachfront restaurant just next door!

Beach and ocean activities including swimming, surfing, snorkeling, scuba, stand up paddling and sailing are just steps away or, if you prefer, you can chill out by our remodeled pool and spa. Tee off at the Kaanapali Golf Course or play a game of tennis at one of the Whaler’s courts. When you are ready for lunch or dinner, you are right next door to outstanding restaurants at Whaler’s Village (world class shopping, too!) or along the beach boardwalk.

A highlight of your trip from December to March will be watching the humpback whales from the lanai or taking a whale watching boat trip which can be arranged by the concierge at the Whaler.

Note: please send me an email if you would like me to send you larger pictures!

Note: Please call or email for 'extended stay' rates of 14 days or longer.

**NOTE** If you are planning a family gathering, please call me. I own another condo at a nearby property with studio, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom units that is a great place for a family reunion.

Guestbook comments from the manager
My husband and I can't say enough about our stay in this condo... it was perfect! Spacious, immaculate, well-maintained and a central location to all the activities Michele recommended. The informational email she sent before our departure for Maui was very informative and, in addition, she was open to a telephone conversation when we had further questions. We experienced killer calamari at the Hula Grill next door and Michele's son's favorite dessert at Leilani's - Hula Pie, and breakfast (our favorite at Aloha Mixed Plate right on the ocean front as you enter Lahaina). Snorkeling with the recommended rashgard shirts to prevent sunburn (get great deals on these at Costco by the airport), we found Honolua Bay the best because it is sheltered from the wave action. Our suggestion is to rent a waist flotation device if you are not an excellent swimmer... saves energy and a lot safer. Our favorite tourist things were the Saturday market in Kahului, arts and crafts market in Lahaina by the Post Office on Sunday, Haleakala at sunrise, the Warren and Annabelle Magic Show in Lahaina, parasailing with UFO the morning of July 4 and shave ice at Ululanis (so good we had it 8 times out of the 10 days we were there!). We could not write a review without mentioning Veronitiki, our cleaning attendant. Not only did she keep everything sparkling clean, she even started the dishwasher for us. The best thing about Maui is the people we met and the stories we shared, from service people to tourists. If there was anything we could suggest, it would be to provide 2 lawn/beach chairs to sit on the grounds/beach. We are older and gave up laying on beach towels long ago! We rented two but it was inconvenient picking them up and returning them in Lahaina. Thanks, Michele, for sharing your little piece of heaven in Maui. We appreciated every detail!

We have vacationed on Maui for over 25 years. After staying at all the resort hotels on Kaanapali from the Hyatt Regency on down to the Sheraton and elsewhere on Maui we decided to purchase our condominium at The Whaler - on the best beach on Maui and considered by many to be the best beach resort in the world! Location, Location, Location! The Whaler is in the heart of Kaanapali Beach right next door to Whaler's Village with wonderful beachfront restaurants and world class shopping. Snorkeling at Black Rock just down the beach from the Whaler is awesome! We love having the convenience of our condo for cooking our own meals when we want to and the access to great restaurants when we want something special! We recently completely remodeled our condo to 'A' status including limestone tiled walk-in shower, 'his' and 'hers' sinks and granite counters in the bathroom, water saving toilet, stainless steel appliances, granite counter and cherry wood cabinets in the kitchen, a brand new king size bed and new 37' Hi Def flat panel TV. All professionally decorated for relaxing and comfortable resort living. We are sure you will enjoy our little piece of paradise as much as we do! P.S. In our photo, we are having a lot of fun at the Halloween Parade in Lahaina!

Fantastic Unit for up to 2 or 3 people

  • 5 of 5
I've stayed at the Whaler various years before but this was my first time in this unit. Having seen a bunch of other units in the same building I can say that this one is among the nicest ones I've been to. Michele, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with. Emails were responded promptly in a professional but personal and friendly manner. The reservation process was quick and straight forward. The Whaler is great for it's upgraded units with new bathrooms and kitchens. The studio offers a balcony facing the north side on the same level as the tree tops which gives the balcony some privacy. It of course also offers an ocean view. The service at the Whaler is all around very friendly and professional.
I would recommend this studio to anyone who is looking to get away from the typical resort atmosphere. I think it is especially well suited for couples.

Owner's Response: We designed the upgrades to our condo ourselves with an eye towards couples - including his and hers bathroom sinks which are rare in a studio. We love the privacy of our lanai's tree top and ocean view and enjoy being on the quiet side of Tower I. Our goal is to give our guests a great vacation experience starting with our simple booking - just 2 nights refundable deposit to reserve our unit and settle up your account when you check out - no contracts or other confusing arrangements. We are also happy to help you with suggestions for your trip to Maui!

great stay in Maui!

  • 5 of 5
I had a wonderful time in Maui! First time using VRBO and first time staying at this condo. Booking was easy, called the owner and they set everything up with the Whaler. Condo was very clean and remodeled not too long ago. Looks just like the pictures. Free maid service everyday was a huge plus. Only two of us staying there so it was perfect and I hope to be back, I definitely recommend this place. Location was wonderful, close to the beach and walking distance to shops and restaurants.

Owner's Response: As stated, booking your condo with me is very easy. I do not require complicated rental agreements or full payment in advance. Only a 2 night refundable deposit is needed to reserve my condo. You settle up your remaining balance when you check out at the front desk - just like staying at a hotel.

Never staying in a hotel in Maui again! Great Condo experience!!

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from an 8 night stay. The condo is just as described, everything is very modern and well maintained. Having a fully stocked kitchen is so handy. Loved the bar height furniture on the lanai, we were able to sit and watch whales without leaving our room. This was our first time staying at the Whaler, and it will not be the last. (previously stayed in resorts in the same area) Already trying to plan a vacation for next year in this unit. The location on Kaanapali is great, right next to the shopping and restaurants at Whaler's Village, with an awesome beach! Would highly recommend to anyone.

BEAUTIFUL CONDO WITH A GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
Unit 514 at The Whaler exceeded all expectations. It was spacious for a studio, very clean and a wonderful view of the ocean. We have visited Maui several times and have always loved the location of The Whaler. We loved experiencing the Beach Walk each day and ending many days with a visit to Yogurt Land at Whaler Village. We loved the convenience of restaurants and stores in Whaler Village. Michelle was very responsive to our questions and a delight to work with. What a nice surprise when opening the refrigerator upon arrival. Thanks, Michelle, for the delicious pineapple. Daily maid service with no cleaning fee was, also, a wonderful addition to a superb stay.

Very Nice unit. Housekeeping staff is excellent!

  • 4 of 5
This unit is nicely re-done in the kitchen and main area. The floor tile in the bath is the only thing that has not been updated; everything else is all re-done. Nice welcome package upon arrival. Good quality beds and linens. The Whaler grounds are very nice. The pool is just so-so...nothing to write home about and constantly packed to the gills. Nice BBQ area. Overall, a very good choice.
