Tina and Ted Tiki here to tell you about our favorite place in Maui...The Whaler unit #656 on Kaanapali Beach. Be sure to click the link below to look through our full photo album on Flickr. In the meantime, here are a few things that make this unit stand out:
- The amazing view from the lanai. Unit 656 faces the ocean AND the beautifully landscaped courtyard between the two Whaler buildings. On the lanai, we like to enjoy a glass of wine for sunset or just take an afternoon nap.
- The convenience of having a full kitchen and washer and dryer in unit. The kitchen helps us save money on meals (a Safeway grocery store is just a couple miles away) and the in unit laundry is helpful for keeping towels and linens clean and also for taking care of that BBQ stain on your white t-shirt. There also is a gas grill on the property ready to be fired up on a moment's notice.
- The ability to sleep up to four people by making use of the pull-out couch. The bedroom is entirely separate, but the living and dining room are attached---making it easy and comfortable to rent the unit with two couples or a family of four.
- The large amount of free amenities provided in this unit. There is free wireless internet (and a desktop computer, if you don't want to bring your laptop). The unit also has snorkel and tennis gear available for your use. Tennis courts are on The Whaler property and although they don't provide golf gear, there are golf course within steps of the property.
And, like all units in The Whaler, guests of 656 have access to all the property amenities, like the gym, sauna, spa, pool and hot tub and on-site parking.

Hi! We're Bill and Maryann Beckham--owners of unit #656 at the Whaler. We're both born and raised in Toledo, Ohio. We've been lucky enough to travel quite a bit in our life together and agree that we love our time in Maui the most. Our favorite aspect: the view from the lanai (especially in the winter months where we can see whales playing in the water)! We have two daughters (and a son-in-law). Our oldest, Ashlie, lives in Colorado and says the only thing close to the beauty of the Rocky Mountains is the view of the Pacific from #656. Our other daughter, Mandy, and her husband, Jeff, live in Chicago. They love to vacation in Maui to take a break from their busy city life (and get away from those Chicago winters). We are so happy and proud of our unit in The Whaler and know it will be a perfect vacation spot for you too! And by the way, our profile picture is our family cheering on the USA women's beach volleyball team in the Beijing Olympics!
