Meets My High Standards
The penthouse studio at the Whaler is in great condition. Granite/stainless kitchen, modern bath, comfortable bed, nice furnishings; ample towels, linens, pillows, etc. Unit is on the sunny side of the building so you get exellent views of Lanai, the coast and sunsets. We had two adults and it is a very spacious studio for two. Only possible negative is you do get some noise from Whalers Village during business hours but nothing but ocean waves after everything closes down. Resort is managed by Aston, so if you need any hotel/resort type things they are there for you (salon, spa, workout room, pool towels, beach toys, concierge, bellman, etc).
This is one of the best locations, right on Kaanapali Beach - no need to get in your car for snorkeling (Black Rock), surfing, dining - at least 20 restaurants and both Luau's (Hyatt and Royal Lahiana) are all within a 10 minute walk on the beach.
Reservations with the owner; check-in / check-out were all easy. Great place to stay - have been to Hawaii and Maui over a dozen times and will certainly see if this unit is available for our next Maui trip
