About Dianne Friesen

We live in the Beautiful city of Kelowna BC, Canada. located in the Okanagan Valley and known as the Napa of The North for it's great vineyards and orchards. We feel privileged to live there in the summer months and in Maui for part of our winter.

Dianne Friesen purchased this condo in 2004

Why Dianne Friesen chose Kaanapali

We came to Maui and stayed at The Whaler for many years and always wanted to buy - finally we did and it's been fabulous. It's so beautiful here and we love the proximity to the best beach, wonderful Kaanapali Walkway, Whalers Village and it's shops and excellent restaurants. It's become our second home!

What makes this condo unique

By Far, a Ground Floor unit, that's elevated for the ocean view, with a lawn and front yard rather than lanai railings. We rarely use elevators or hallways but walk off the lanai and it's steps to the beach, pool, bar-b-ques and walkway. Late afternoon shade is wonderful after a day in the sunshine! This is ideal for our 7 grandchildren! Although they don't all stay with us at once!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an absolutely fantastic time during our stay. The unit was beautiful way beyond our expectations, we were very happy there. Thanks and maybe we'll be able to stay there in '09.

Excellent, modern ground-floor condo facing Black Rock

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful condo! I was hesitant at first to reserve a ground level condo, as I was concerned about the noise of people walking back and forth. But we now would not have it any other way! This condo faces the Black Rock outcropping on the outer side of the complex (you can see people jumping off the cliff…from your couch). We could walk straight out our back patio doors onto the long private lawn and straight out to the beach, the new BBQ area, everything. I underestimated how much of a convenience that would be. No sharing elevators! We always felt secure and undisturbed.

The condo itself is fully updated with granite countertops throughout, tiled floor (no carpet), modern kitchen and bathrooms, top of the line appliances and cabinetry, very functional kitchen with everything you could possibly need. The furnishings and the décor is spot on for a beachside resort. There’s tons of functional storage in every room including the bathrooms. This condo is just three or so doors down from the new BBQ area, which was finished mid-way through our stay. Three huge gas grills, large tiled sitting area. The only thing they need to work on is the lighting. There are only two huge flood lights on the palm trees pointed down on the patio that are bright enough to warn passing ships! Need ambient lighting instead. Other than that, this is a great new addition.

Hard to find anything wrong with the condo honestly, but if there is anything that could be improved on, it was this—The bedroom dresser smells; I’m certain it’s the type of wood that gives it a bad odor. I tried keeping our clothes in it but eventually had to move everything to the closet or bathroom storage. Just couldn’t hack the smell. Just keep the drawers closed and it’s fine. No big deal since there was plenty of storage anyway. We were never inconvenienced by it. Secondly the maid service supplies very little soap. There was one very small bar in the master bathroom, similar to what you would get in a hotel, which only lasted a day. I bought a couple of bars at the grocery. Again, no big deal.

Contact me with any questions you may have.

Couldn't Ask for Anything Better!

Couldn't Ask for Anything Better!
  • 5 of 5
This condo is absolutely wonderful! I spent a lot of time researching and reading reviews before choosing this condo and I picked the perfect one! The decor is awesome. It feels like home! The kitchen couldn't be nicer. There is plenty of room to unpack and store everything you bring (and we had a lot). The view and location are perfect too! Whalers Village is next door so there are plenty of activities and free events like hula shows and lei making. Lots of restaurants too! Easy access right on the beach to surf lessons and snorkel cruises. The great thing is that even though all these things are so close, the actual location of the condo is very private so it is quiet and relaxing off the lanai. We have 2 young daughters so it was great to be on the ground floor where they could play outside while we got dinner ready. We used the washer and dryer in the hall and that was very easy and convenient. We never had to wait. All I can say is if you are spending lots of time searching for the perfect vacation spot, no need to keep looking because you've found it!!

PERFECTION-BEST MAUI VACATION YET-BEST CONDO

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from Maui and this condo was AWESOME!!! I've been to Maui MANY times over the years and this location is by far my favorite. The condo looks even better in person- it is decorated so lovely- and the tile floor is a big plus when you are only a few feet away from Maui's best beach! It was so wonderful having coffee & cocktails on the patio and walking a few steps to the beach for a dip-and the BBQ to make dinner-no elevators-no stairs-We also loved being so close to Whalers Village-and the Hula Grill (Barefoot Bar) one of our favorite spots. Everything is new -and they have Anything & everything you could want or need for the kitchen . Owners were a joy to work with- quick response time-and everything was flawless.
You will not regret staying here! We are already planning to return next year! Mahalo

The Best Ground Floor Unit Period!

  • 5 of 5
We have stay at other units from the Alii & Whaler. This was exactly as the photos show. A nice view of Black Rock...from your private patio. The unit is upscale! So so easy to get to the beach without going up and down the elevator. We opened the patio door and walk 50 steps onto the sand & swam everyday in the warm waters of Maui. This was the best trip ever...at truly a wonderful condo. All appliances are top of the line..granite tops top of the line bath shower fixtures..plasma TV's with DVR blue ray...too. take your choice.Just a short walk to the Whaler shopping center and restaurants...& this is a HUGE Plus! Just don't sit there and waste time looking at other one bedrooms in Maui...this is the one you want!

This condo is fantastic! We come hear every year. It has an incredible view, is steps from the beach and is absolutely beautiful inside. This ground floor unit makes it incredibly convenient for access to the beach, pool and BBQ's. The views from the patio are perfect for enjoying morning coffee and evening cocktails. We are ready to book again for next year!!!
