THE WHALER~ STUNNING COURTYARD OCEAN VIEW, 9TH FLOOR~ ONE FROM OCEAN FRONT

Kaanapali Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 2 Bath (Sleeps 5)

~Luxurious remodeled ocean view condo~

Please use our instant quote feature and our calendar on this VRBO/Homeaway site to check for prices and availability. We keep everything up-to-date.

We are very excited to announce the 2014 complete remodel of our one bedroom two bath condo, featuring an all new Kitchen and two new baths plus new tile flooring, new carpeting, and granite counters throughout. The remodeled baths have new cabinets, sinks, toilets, granite counters, tile, and lighting. The master bath has a walk-in shower for easy access and an innovative shower head which lets you choose between a waterfall or rainfall effect. There is also a hand held shower and a bench for those who wish to sit while showering. Our washer and dryer are now in the master hallway next to a beautiful new vanity. The guest bath has a tub and a hand held shower for easy bathing of children. The kitchen has been completely gutted with all new flooring, granite counters, cabinets, lighting, a wider floor plan, a pantry, and new appliances, including a large French door refrigerator and a beverage center. Three bar stools have been added for extra dining options.

All furniture has been replaced by new luxurious brands such as Tommy Bahama, Michael Amini, and Pulaski, giving the condo a tropical feel. We have also replaced the couch with a new sleeper couch by American Leather, which has a patent on its unique sleeper design. The bed is made with foam rubber and gel instead of coils to give it the highest level of comfort. Also in the unit is a roll-way bed, allowing 5 people to easily stay together.

Besides the wonderful interior, the condo’s lanai offers the most outstanding views you will find in all of Maui. The condo truly feels oceanfront even though it’s one back. The south -facing direction can’t be beat, with views of the island of Lanai, Kaanapali Beach, and the courtyard’s beautiful pool and Koi pond. The condo’s high level on the 9th floor allows for the lanai to always have cool breezes. In the winter months, whales can be seen from the lanai, especially in February when they are abundant. Every night the sliders can be open so you can sleep to the sound of the ocean.

The Whaler, a premiere condominium resort, is in the heart of the famous Ka’anapali Beach. Ka’anapali Beach is recognized worldwide as one of the top ten beaches. The spectacular natural setting, along with the many amenities of this resort hotel, make it an outstanding paradise vacation for people of all ages. The Whaler has recently completed more than $30 million worth of property renovations and enhancements over the last 3 plus years. The Whaler on Ka’anapali Beach featured amenities include state of the art fitness center, business center, tennis courts, beach side pool with hydra-spa, an on-site concierge, a beach kiosk with towel service, beach-side gas grills, onsite Aveda spa, air conditioning, and underground parking. The superior location of the property keeps owners and guests in the heart of some of the best shopping, dining, and ocean activities on Maui. Within walking distance are two world class golf courses, Whaler's Village Shopping Center with 65 shops and restaurants, and a whaling museum. A paved promenade allows easy strolling along Ka’anapali beach. A free Trolley also allows you to ride between all the properties on Ka’anapali Beach.

Ka’anapali Beach has much to offer. In addition to long walks on the beach, numerous water activities are available directly along Ka’anapali Beach including catamaran trips (which pick up directly in front of The Whaler), swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, parasailing, whale watching, boating, sailing, surfing, windsurfing, Jet-skiing, dinner cruises, golfing, and luaus. It’s also a short stroll along the beach to Black Rock where you can watch the cliff divers in the evening or take the whole family for a swim with the turtles and tropical fish during the day. We love staying here and we think you will too.

We live in the beautiful central coast of California. We have four children, with only one remaining at home. We are retired and enjoy traveling when our son is not in school.

Laura Pfeil purchased this condo in 2013

We have been visiting Hawaii with our family ever since they were young. We like all the islands but Maui is our favorite. We bought The Whaler because we think Kaanapali Beach is the best beach in west Maui and we wanted a place to spend our summers.

After looking at many condos, we settled on The Whaler because the units are so close to the ocean. You can sleep with your door open and hear the ocean all night. It's also great to be right next door to Whaler's Village so you can get food or dine out. My son loves the beach here as it's one of the few places on west Maui that has as sandy ocean bottom. It's great for boogie boarding.

LOVING MAUI

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to Maui, and it was our best vacation in 20 years. The owner, Laura, immediately responded to any questions/needs we had both before and during our stay.

The view is even better than it can be displayed in a photo. We spent hours on the lanai eating, reading books and watching people on the beach. The condo is completely outfitted with everything we needed from high quality cookware to great beach chairs and umbrella. We often ate in, but we did enjoy meals and mai-tai's at Leilani's (short walk away), Mala's (3 miles away) and great coffee in Whaler's Village.

Location, location, location. This condo is near everything: fabulous Kaanapali beach right in front, short walk to Black Rock where there is good snorkeling, several restaurants, Whaler's Village which has a variety of shops, and boats that take off from Kaanapali Beach for snorkeling trips. We didn't use the pool/hot tub because we like to swim in the ocean, but lots of other people were enjoying the pool. Next to the pool is a place where you can rent umbrellas, lounge chairs, etc.

At my age, a comfortable bed is extremely important. The bed in this condo made it hard to want to get up in the morning - it was so cozy. If it weren't for the beautiful Kaanapali Beach calling to me, I might have lounged longer.

Now that we are back in the rainy northwest, we are asking ourselves, "How soon can we go back?" It was a piece of heaven.

Owner's Response: I'm so pleased that you both had a great time in Maui! I always hope that guests' vacations are everything they dreamed it would be. The Whaler really is in a wonderful location! I know you appreciated how easy it was to take your snorkel trip on the Terelani and then after walk a few steps to Whaler's Village for dinner. The condo's location within The Whaler is something we love as well. We also love to spend a lot of time on the lanai just staring at the ocean. We can't wait to return this summer and we hope you will stay with us again soon too! Mahalo for your great review!

2 WEEKS IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were fortunate enough to stay 2 weeks at the Whaler in this wonderful condo.
We were blown away with the view from the lanai and spent a good deal of our time on it listening to the waves, watching the sunsets and the activities on the beach. The condo was extremely comfortable and was perfect for our our needs. There were 2 flat screen tv's, a dvd player and a stereo that worked quite well with our iphones so we could listen to Iz as we sat on the lanai.
The folks at the Whaler were also very accomodating and the concierge set up a trip to Lanai for us on Trilogy that was really great.
The only negative was that the condo needed a bit of updating--that being said, I know that the owners are completely remodeling this Spring and should make the condo even more spectacular.
All in all, it was a fabulous trip in a wonderful setting and we can't wait to use this condo again next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of our condo. I agree that the views from our condo are outstanding. We love to spend time on the lanai too. We bought this condo last summer and immediately made plans for a remodel. It will begin in two weeks and I'm very excited to see the remodel underway! We will be there in mid June to set it up and will be posting pictures as soon as possible.

A HAWAII HAVEN!!

  • 5 of 5
I don't know what I can add here that hasn't been emphasized in the other reviews, but it was just PERFECT. Laura was so kind, responsive, and had everything all lined up for an easy check in. I like that she even checks in with you the next day to see that if you have any questions. The unit is a meticulous, comfortable home away from home, well stocked with anything you could need. The view is breathtaking. The bed was so cozy I slept later than I wanted to each morning! I have been to Maui many times, but this is in the perfect location right on the beachside path, on the perfect beach. I would highly recommend this property to friends and family, it was the highlight of my stay. Thank you beyond words, Laura! I'm looking forward to my next visit!

Owner's Response: Lauren, I appreciate your outstanding review! I'm glad that you were able to relax and rejuvenate once again at The Whaler. The Whaler really does sit on the best location in Kaanapali, and I would argue in all of Maui. I'm happy you found the condo comfortable and well-equipped too. The bed in the master bedroom is the only bed I've slept on where I didn't have a backache the next day. We are gearing up for the May remodel now and that mattress is the only thing I'm keeping! I hope you find the time to stay with us again soon Lauren! Mahalo!

LOOKING FOR A FANTASTIC PLACE TO REST AND RELAX.. LOOK NO FURTHER.. THIS IS IT!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at your condo was a wonderful experience. The staff at the Whalers were most gracious and answered all our questions. The owners were prompt with email replies, sent out information and details in a timely manner and were most friendly and helpful with any queries we had. As this was our first time using VRBO, it was a fantastic experience. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants a quiet, warm, peaceful, restful getaway! From viewing amazing sunsets on the lanai to breaching whales 200m from the beach... Thanks, we will definitely be booking again!

Owner's Response: We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us Diane. We try very hard to be responsive and make sure our guests are happy and comfortable. I always have my iPhone with me and usually respond to texts, emails, or calls instantly (unless driving of course). We have been VRBO renters ourselves many times and we understand the frustration of not being able to contact an owner/manager. It really can make or break a vacation. We look forward to having you stay with us again! Mahalo

BEAUTIFUL CHRISTMAS ON THE BEACH!

  • 5 of 5
We are loving our stay at this Maui condo, and would happily return -- we highly recommend this beautiful spot to everyone. The ocean and Lanai island views from the 9th-floor rooms and balcony are gorgeous, bright and expansive -- the perfect antidote for winter. The condo is clean and well-stocked, and very comfortable and spacious for a family of 5. The washer/dryer and the 2 full bathrooms are a definite plus! The owner Laura is very helpful, friendly and organized, and was both pleasant and professional to deal with. The location of the Whaler is perfect, on a beautiful lively beach with gentle waves only a couple hundred yards from Black Rock with its excellent snorkeling. Parking is very reasonable in the underground garage, and driving to other beaches, restaurants and markets is a breeze. Whaler's Village with its shops and restaurants is a convenient 5-minute walk away -- great for when you need a quart of milk or to pick up a pizza after a long beach day! This is one of the prettiest and most relaxing spots we've stayed.

Owner's Response: A big MAHALO Ami for your review and recommendation! It's great that you were able to fill one of our gaps and get to spend Christmas at The Whaler! I'm glad you made use of the cot and the sleeper couch too. As you said, it's easy to share the space when there is two full baths. I agree that The Whaler is in a great location and coupled with the condo's features, it makes it a wonderful vacation for the whole family. I hope you will be back with us again in the near future.

FABULOUS CONDO MADE FOR A FABULOUS VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Wow, ten days on the beautiful island of Maui was a dream come true, and staying at The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach made our vacation complete. Laura's condo exceeded our expectations. We (my boyfriend, mother and I) felt 'at home' right away with the fully equipped kitchen, comfortable furniture/beds, washer and dryer, nice flat screen TV, complimentary wi-fi, etc. We used the beach chairs, sun umbrella and cooler almost every day. And the view from the large lanai left us speechless. We woke to beautiful sunrises over the mountains every morning, and enjoyed spectacular sunsets over the island of Lanai in the evening. We appreciated being on the quiet, inside of Tower 1 overlooking the garden and pool, with full sun every afternoon. The staff at The Whaler were helpful and friendly and the grounds were immaculate. The location just cannot be beat, with Whaler's Village next door and great snorkeling at Black Rock a few minutes walk down the beach. We did have a car, and toured the island quite extensively, but the location of the condo is convenient enough that you wouldn't necessarily need a car as the beach, water activities, entertainment, restaurants and shopping are all within walking distance. There is even a bus you can take into Lahaina, (and Safeway) for $2.00 each way or $4.00 for an all day pass, which we actually used a few times. I cannot emphasize enough how much we enjoyed staying here, and can't imagine vacationing anywhere else. I could literally live here. I am already looking at available dates on the calendar for next time! Thank you, Laura for your easy communication and suggestions. I knew you'd be available at anytime for any questions or concerns we might have had.

Owner's Response: Mahalo Julie for this extensive review! I'm so happy the three of you had a great vacation! I love to hear how comfortable all of you were in the condo. I tried to give it that homey feeling. Thanks also for the information about the buses to Lahaina. I did not know the price but I agree that getting to food, activities, and Lahaina is easy to do From The Whaler. All the reasons you mentioned for loving the condo, (the view, service, location) are the same reasons we love it too! I hope we find a time when you can visit it again! Look forward to hearing from you soon.
