KAANAPALI BEACH WHALER - GORGEOUS 10TH FLOOR OCEANVIEW STUDIO

Kaanapali Condo Rental Photos and Description

King Bed Studio, High Floor, Ocean View

Aloha from the beautiful #1061 at The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach.

This gorgeous studio condo is newly available on VRBO, and provides stunning views of the ocean and the world famous Kaanapali Beach. Whether you are baking a dinner in our fully-equipped kitchen, grilling fresh fish on one of the complex's five oceanfront, propane grills, or cutting a fresh papaya, you can enjoy any meal on the gorgeous, 10th floor, ocean view lanai. The south facing lanai has a phenomenal view of the entire southern stretch of Ka'anapali beach, the gorgeous Whaler's Village, and the West Maui mountains.

Unlike many studio condos, our unit has a large, comfortable king size bed! And there is a pullout couch for an additional bed. The condo also has a new flat screen HDTV with cable and DVD player, and there is complimentary WiFi.

The Whaler provides the luxury and convenience of combining the amenities of a hotel complex with those of a personal condominium. The Whaler is comprised of two 12-story towers. Over the last ~3 years, the property has completed over $30 million in renovations, including a newly renovated courtyard with koi ponds, as well as a new hot tub and new tile and railings on the lanais. The Whaler has a beautiful, oceanfront pool, complete with lounge chairs and shaded cabanas, a hot tub, and towel service. Immediately adjacent to the pool deck, is the towel cabana, where you can get a fresh towel to use both at the pool and on the beach. Also on the property is a fully equipped exercise room, business center, sauna, salon, 5 propane BBQs, convenient underground parking, and a bellhop.

The condo is located 10 stories above the paved promenade that stretches the length of Ka’anapali beach. Along this promenade are many of Maui’s premier stores and restaurants, as well as many of the exciting activities available on the island. There is an almost infinite amount of tropical activities at your fingertips. Surfing lessons, paddle-boarding, catamaran excursions, luaus, scuba diving, whale watching, and two top-class golf courses are just some of the many options that are available right outside the condo. If you are feeling even more adventurous, there is a plethora of day-trip adventures you can embark upon. You can take guided, sunrise/sunset tours of Haleakala (or even mountain bike down it!), go zip-lining, horseback riding, hiking, or take a helicopter tour of the island. There is always something incredible to do on Maui, and this condo on Ka’anapali beach is located at the heart of everything.

We also have a gorgeous, large 2BR/2BA (#452723) ocean front condo directly across the hall that is available for rent. It is perfect for larger parties that want additional space, but still want to be just across the hall. Check out the listing - #452723

Mahalo!

Awesome studio and location with great views

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I stayed in this studio for eight nights in June. Based on the photos, we were expecting a nice studio, but this place really exceeded our expectations. It's much larger than I was expecting for a studio/based on the photos, and the views from the balcony are amazing in person, with the beach and neighboring islands to one side and the mountains to the other.

The balcony was probably my favorite spot to hang out on the condo: it's shaded, breezy and great for the view/people watching and to relax with coffee or a beer. We only took advantage of it a couple of times, but the fully stocked kitchen was a nice option to have. The closet was also filled with supplies that came in handy, like extra beach towels and beach chairs. And the bed is more comfortable than my own, which I don't think I've ever been able to say about a place I've rented.

The location was perfect for Kaanapali. It's close to everything, yet the beach in front of the Whaler was relatively uncrowded compared to the other hotels. It's great for skimboarding, and there's also a rental spot by the pool that we rented paddle boards from. The area by Black Rock is easy to get to and great for paddle boarding and snorkeling. The waves are bigger a little ways down the beach, which was perfect for our beginner-level surfing.

There were plenty of options for food, drinks, and activities all within a really short walk. Next door, there's a tiki bar and a free luau, and there are a few really good happy hours in Whaler's Village and neighboring hotel beach-side restaurants/bars. There was even a farmer's market on the weekend. We didn't rent a car but had no trouble getting around and finding things to do nearby. There's a bus that stops right in front of Whaler's Village and goes to Lahaina, where we took a surf lesson and went to Maui Brewing. We also rented bikes for the week, which were perfect for exploring the area.

The owners were awesome to work with. They were quick to respond to my many inquiries and had tons of suggestions for places to eat and activities to do. They even had a welcome basket filled with local treats. They returned my deposit quickly. The staff running the front desk were friendly as well, and they were nice enough to hold our bags before check-in and give us some extra suggestions about nearby surf spots when we arrived.

Overall, we had an amazing time and will definitely rent this condo again the next time we're back in Kaanapali.

Great Place for Two!

  • 4 of 5
Everything you need in a condo for two - wonderful views of the mountains and ocean, and some beautiful sunsets. Very relaxing to sit on the lanai and watch the catamarans, swimmers and sunsets. Even when it rained, we had beautiful rainbow views over the mountains. Convenient to a great stretch of beach, restaurants and shopping, and not too far a drive from other activities (road to Hana, Haleakala, etc.). Kitchen was well stocked with the essentials, and we really appreciated the arrival gift basket, thank you! If the condo lacked anything, it was a place to hang clothes! Overlooking Whaler's Village did not seem to be create a noise problem in the evenings. If you intend to cook during your stay, you will need a car to get to the nearest grocery store. We would definitely rent this condo again!

March 11-20 Great Vacation

  • 4 of 5
This was my first time using VRBO, so I was a little hesitant at first.However all my inquirees were answered quickly and payment was made following the guidelines, so no problem there.Check in was very fast, and our bags were delivered to the room,although there was some delay in this.
We really enjoyed our stay in this condo. Great for a couple only. It is very well located on the beach.Nice restaurants next door and the ABC store has everything you need without travelling to far. Other shopping is close by,even by bus.There is however some noise from the Whalers Village until about 2200,and you do get some exhaust smoke from the kitchen of the Hula Grill wafting up to the lanai depending on the wind. Everything is close by. The public bus to Lahaina is located next door and the trip is quick.We booked the whale watching excursion at the concierge in the lobby, quick and easy. If you go during whale season I highly recommend this.
We also rented a car from Hertz, pretty expensive in my opinion, but it was a good way to see more of Maui.The Road to Hana was unique,scary at times but oh well.
Mama's Fish House just outside Kahului was a nice find, fresh fish from that morning.Expensive for lunch at $100. but very nice.
The pool area is pretty good,stay at the south end for the best sun.It was pretty windy when we were there, some sand flying around on the beach, and some big waves,but it is a nice beach.
We used VIP transit from the airport,round trip $104 for two plus tax.They were very good,waiting on our arrival at the luggage carousel,and right on time for our return to the airport.
I would definitly recommend this condo to anyone looking to go to Ka'anapali beach.
My security deposit was refunded before I even got back to Canada,Thank You.

Wonderful...we loved it!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Whaler for 5 nights at the beginning of Nov 2013. Everything about the condo, the communication from the owners, the resort and Kaanapali Beach was just perfect...we could not have asked for any more!

Firstly, compliments to the owners who were very quick to respond to enquiries, were proactive in sending through helpful suggestions and information, kindly left some lovely welcome gifts in the condo and returned the security deposit to my credit card exceptionally quickly after check out. Thank you!

The condo is in great shape and we very much enjoyed being able to cater for ourselves. The view from the lanai is stunning! The colour of the ocean is spectacular and the sun setting over Lanai makes a perfect end to the day...I have about 1000 photos to prove it! There is a little noise during the day from the Whaler's Village, however nothing problematic and simply a trade off for the benefit of being so exceptionally close to all the facilities it offers.

The Whaler is located on what in my opinion is probably the best bit of Kaanapali beach - the beach there is uncrowded, unlike the section outside the Sheraton...and is always wide...whereas some sections alongside the resorts to the south of the Whaler's Village can be very narrow at high tide and there seem to be some issues with erosion. Because the beach and ocean were so gorgeous we didn't spend much time at the pool, however there was generally plenty of room and staff were really quite proactive at trying to prevent sun loungers being reserved with towels but left unused for long periods of time.

This condo and everything else comes highly recommended...we spent the second half of our holiday in Waikiki but wished we were still at the Whaler!

Wonderful trip!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this condo at The Whaler. We have stayed at The Whaler many times, in several different condos. We loved this one! It is much better in person than the pictures on the website show. The view is fantastic and we enjoyed eating our breakfasts and lunches on the lanai with a view of the ocean. Everything was supplied that you will possibly need and we loved the special touch of the gift that was waiting for us when we arrived. We will definitely stay at this condo again and would highly recommend it.

Great studio unit in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at The Whaler #1061 and had a wonderful time. We've stayed at The Whaler many times over the past 25 years and always enjoy our experience. The unit is well appointed, clean and felt like home. The view out the 10th floor lanai was terrific and a great place to have morning coffee. The WiFi worked great and we only had a slight problem with the refridgerator with was taken care of quickly. I would recommend this unit, and the owners, to anyone. We will be returning next year and will likely look to book this unit again. Mahalo.
