Why Bob Thompson chose Maui

The views from our lanai of the ocean, beach, outer islands, Kaanapali Golf course, and Maui mountains with rainbows are stunning. We are right next door to the Whaler Shopping Center with extensive shopping, and two wonderful restaurents with ocean views. This is really the place to relax, unwind, and enjoy the sand beach, warm ocean water and Maui sun. Maui no ka oi (Maui is the Best!).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you again for letting us enjoy your beautiful condo. We can't believe it's been a year since our last stay and we are already counting down the days until next summer. It's our home away from home--but our home doesn't have your view! We are so lucky and blessed to be able to enjoy all this. We will be back again next year. Love your new furnishings and bed! Best sleep I've had in years! Mahalo

Welcome Home To Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We are returning guests of #1118 for over 20 vacations. That should tell anyone this is a wonderful unit to stay in. Every time we walk into unit #1118 it feels like home…we’re back!

The first thing you see when you walk into #1118 is the incredible sweeping view of the island of Molokai, north Kaanapali and the mountains. It truly is breath taking.

This unit has everything you’ll need for a wonderful vacation. A fully equipped kitchen with new stainless steel appliances. A king size bed so comfortable you’ll want to take home with you. A large HD TV, Wi-Fi and a library of books. No need to rent beach chairs, umbrellas or ice coolers because they’re in the unit for you to use. Basically you’ll find everything you need.

The Whaler is perfectly located on Kaanapali Beach. You are within walking distance to everything from Whaler’s Village, Black Rock, restaurants, entertainment, spas and snorkeling. Lahaina is about 5 minutes away with more shops, restaurants and entertainment.

Bob and Sandra are a joy to talk with and very knowledgeable about Maui. They consistently update their unit and it’s always fun for us to see what’s new this year. This visit we loved the new carpet.

Already looking forward to our next visit in 2016.

Whaler Vacationers

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Maui 6 times, the last 3 trips we have stayed at the Whaler and our last trip stay we stayed in 1118. This by far was the best studio we have stayed at since we have been at the Whaler. We are planning to return in March 2016. The Studio is in a great location to view Black Rock, whale watching (in season) from the lanai and enjoyed meals and cocktails, Whalers Village has excellent shopping, entertainment and restaurants and Lahaina is close (by car) for more superb restaurants and activities. We walked every morning and relaxed on one of the most beautiful beaches. Black Rock is within walking distance for snorkeling (state water park). The owners of 1118 has maintained and updated the suite very nicely. We can tell that they take great pride in 1118. There are grills, a spa and a very nice pool at the Whaler. Can't say more except we LOVED IT and we ARE coming back. ALOHA

Second time is a charm

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time in this studio and will not be our last. The Whaler is a wonderful place to stay. The entire property is awesome. The garden on the property is beautiful, the pool is right there and not overly crowded, the staff shows the true Aloha spirit. You are on the best beach on Maui and within walking distance of a fast food court, numerous restaurants and bars, shopping, very good restaurants, and the Whaler's museum. We parked the rental car and took it out to go to Lahaina or Kapalua, all a short drive away.

The condo feels like home to us. On the way to it, stop at Safeway or Costco and load up on groceries. The full sized fridge came in handy when we packed drinks or sandwiches for the beach and/or pool. (There are a few coolers in the unit.) There is an ice maker in the freezer and an icee for the cooler too! Very easy to have breakfast in the condo, pack a lunch and even cook dinner either in the unit or on the many outdoor barbeque grills.

Going to the beach? No need to rent a cabana as there are many beach chairs and a good beach umbrella in the condo for you to use. If you don't do the sand thing, head to the private pool by 8am and grab a chair or pool cabana. Get there early! You can save a chair or cabana for 30 minutes. One of us would go down and grab a spot, then come back up to the condo. If you need a restroom by the pool, there is easy access to one near the gym at the basement level.

The king sized bed in this unit is so comfortable, you will sleep like a baby. While we were there, the entire building's cable got upgraded to HD, so the TV picture got so much better. This unit has all the comforts of home. The lanai view is spectacular. You get to see Black Rock and the evening Cliff Dive ceremony right from the lanai. You get to watch the rainbows form on the West Maui Mountains, see the catamarans sail towards the north shore of Maui, watch the weather change on Molaka'i, and just watch the waves on Kaanapali Beach. Very relaxing, very comfortable, highly recommendable!

One of our favorite and highly recommendable snorkel or sunset cruises is on the Gemini catamaran, which you can book on-line or at their convenient booth in front of the Westin, which is just past Leilani's restaurant. Gemini has the best captain and crew.

Bob is a true pleasure to work with. Reserving through him is a piece of cake!

Overall, this unit is great. The Whaler id perfect. We call it our home on Maui!

Wonderful view & comfortable accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This loft suite was clean on arrival. The kitchen is well equipped with new appliances. The view is wonderful. Very nice to sit on the lanai in the afternoon shade, always a breeze. The only suggestion would be they install a hand held shower head, giving the option of standard or hand use. Would make it easier for those who are disabled. Easy walk to Whalers Village & all the restaurants there or other hotels. Can get the bus to Lahaina at the Village so no need for a car. This was our 4th trip to Maui & previously stayed at nearby hotels, however this condo was so much better, very relaxing, & saved money too! Highly recommend this unit.

We had a wonderful time at your place on Maui. It was well appointed and we really felt the Aloha spirit. Morning breakfast and Happy Hour on your lanai quickly became our daily routine, with a day of adventures tucked in between. Such awe inspiring views and sense of peace and tranquility. We look forward to coming back soon.
