Grateful travelers!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have stayed at the Whaler for thirty plus years and have actually owned a studio time interval for the past eight, so we are very familiar with the various accommodations there. Jim's condo is, without a doubt, one of the most beautifully decorated and has gorgeous views, just as described.
When we contacted Jim about availability for a very last minute trip (I'm talking arriving the next day), he very graciously accommodated us, even though it meant that he had to vacate the unit in order to do so. He definitely went out of his way to facilitate the check in process and to show us around and answer any questions we might have about the unit itself. We're looking forward to checking out his other condos when we have extra family members traveling with us in the future. Thanks again, Jim!!

Most amazing trip ever !!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned from our first trip to Maui in celebration of our ten year wedding anniversary, and had the pleasure of staying in Jim's amazing condo !!! This unit is first class all the way. The finishes are all high end, from the well equipped kitchen and beautiful bathroom, to the super soft bed and comfortable furniture, this unit will not disappoint !! The location of the unit can't be beat with one of the best beaches in Maui within a few steps outside your door, and some of the best snorkeling I have ever experienced just a short walk down the beach to Black Rock. The view of the beach from the lanai is amazing and we found ourselves leaving the slider doors open quite a bit to enjoy the soothing sounds of the ocean. My husband and I loved Whaler's Village, and walked the shops almost every night. We had a wonderful dinner at the Hula Grill and enjoyed a sunset dinner cruise on one of the catamarans (Hula Girl) that was available from the beach. Thank you Jim for sharing your gorgeous condo with us,it was an absolute pleasure working with you. This was our first trip to Maui and you made booking very easy, and uncomplicated. We will definitely be back next year !!! :)

Dream location in Maui!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a 2 week dream vacation in unit 1064 at Jim's Whaler condo 9/27-10/10/14. Although we had visited Maui numerous times, we had never stayed here or used VRBO for our accommodations. We booked thru Jim several months in advance and found him to be friendly, informative and highly organized-booking was a breeze and we felt confident in the details being handled. Naturally we'd seen the photos and read the reviews but we were absolutely thrilled upon arrival. The room was lovely with high-end finishes throughout, gorgeous fully equipped kitchen & bath and lovely art and furnishings, super comfy bed an soft sheets. The mirrored wall expanded the already magnificent views as well. Plus on the lanai there were beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, noodle, snorkel set & more for our use. The ocean & Black Rock views are absolutely spectacular surpassing anything that can be captured in a photo! We were pleasantly surprised to find the views of the hills and golf course off to the right were also quite stunning. The convenience of this unit can't be beat. We always rent a car but used it a lot less this trip because there wasn't much need or desire to go anywhere we couldn't go on foot. With excellent restaurants, bars, shopping, sunset strolls... it truly has it all! What we love the most was the perfect swimming beach below-the best of any swimming beach we could ever hope for. It is a short walk to the waters edge with a Whaler beach hut for towels, services and friendly staff. The pool isn't overly crowded & pleasant with morning coffee, afternoon lemonade and plenty of comfy lounge chairs with sun covers when needed. It was great to go from the ocean to a cool shower to the pool-our prescription for a perfect day. The lanai was a terrific spot any time of day and we kept the huge glass doors open pretty much 24/7 to take in the views and sound of the surf. We are already looking ahead to when we can go back to unit 1064-it is all we will ever need for a magical Maui experience.

Family of four loved every minute of it

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing, gorgeous, SPACIOUS, well stocked and comfortable studio! Our family of four fell in love with it the moment we walked in. It met every need we wanted and need for our family. Between both the large, comfy Murphy bed and sleeper sofa, our teenager kids managed very well this week with the sleeping situation. In addition, all of the furniture and mattresses were more comfortable than our own for lounging around on in the early mornings while watching the World Cup Soccer matches and recovering after a long day of snorkeling and beach activities. Having both of the tvs placed where they were on the walls, we were able to watch both of the 3rd group stage from both of our beds comfortably and with no issues happily. We cooked in most of the nights and had everything we needed for the kitchen as well as the barbecue grill downstairs. My husband was relieved when he saw the 12-cup coffee-maker! It was our first time to stay in a unit between the towers where we were afforded incredible views of Black Rock, sunsets over the ocean, and daily rainbows in the mountains as well as over the ocean from our lanai. It was also amazingly quiet in the unit to us with and without the sliding doors opened because you could barely hear the noises from the Hula Grill, the pool area and Kaanapali Beach Hotel's hula show. Being able to use the unit's four beach chairs, boogie boards and large umbrella, had a huge impact on keeping our kids happy with staying down at the beach for long periods of time. We will definitely come back and stay in this unit the next time we come!

Amazing unit as well as great owner!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just stayed at this unit for a week on our honeymoon! I have stayed at the whaler a handful of times in different units with my family but let me tell you this unit blows all the others out of the water. The remodel that the owner did is amazing. Very high end and great looking, I was skeptical about the Murphy bed but it was Very Very comfortable! The kitchen is fully stocked with pots and pans as well as anything else you need to cook! The View of black rock was great as well as the sunsets. Beach chairs and umbrellas are there for your use as well. Towel service is provided by the Whaler as you enter onto the beach which made life easy!

The location is in a great spot as well. Located right next to Whalers Village and the Hula Grill! A short walk down the beach and your at black rock which has a great snorkeling spot.

Lastly the Owner Jim is a great guy. Has responded back to me every time I emailed him with a question of mine in a very timely manner and to top it all off I left my wife's Diamond necklace in the unit yesterday and the owners maid found it and was very honest about giving it back and Jim is going to Fedex it back to me in California.
I can't say enough great things about Jim and his beautiful unit at the Whaler. We will be staying here every time we come back to Maui because of him and the service we have received! Thank you Jim for a great Honeymoon!

Fabulous Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We have rented this condo twice (May 2013 & May 2014) and have already booked for next year. Each stay was for one week (+). This unit is better than advertised. It is centrally located, fantastic view and beautifully appointed. The property (Whaler) is beautiful and the people that work there are extremely friendly. The kitchen has everything that you could possibly need during your stay and the bed is very comfortable. The condo has beach chairs and an umbrella to use which is a very nice touch. The beach at the Whaler is a great swimming beach with good snorkeling and black rock is a very short walk/swim up the beach.
I really can’t say enough good things about this unit and the Whaler – give it a try you won’t be sorry.
