Lahaina Condo Rental Photos and Description

Maui Kaanapali Beach Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-2)

Welcome! Have a seat on my outdoor lanai, perched on the 10th floor of the Whaler Condominiums on Maui’s Kaanapali Beach. This spot brings you a panoramic vantage point for the sparkling sea and beckoning beach in front of you, the lush green mountain range and golf course to your left, and the island of Lanai and the old whaling port of Lahaina in the distance.

These views are the reason I bought this place over 20 years ago and never looked back. Guests love it, too, and tell me they spend hours on the lanai, relaxing in our chairs and watching the changing light, from sunrise to sunset.

At the outdoor dining table on the lanai, sample a Hawaiian pupu (an appetizer plate of local goodies like tempura vegetables and skewers of chicken and fish), and watch the lights of the old Lahaina whaling port glimmer in the distance as the sun sinks into the Pacific.

This is paradise--and one example of what awaits you at Whaler 1063.

Our studio condo with king-sized bed is intimate, comfortable, and keeps everything you need close at hand, including kitchen supplies and a collection of beach goodies like lounge chairs, a beach umbrella, and a picnic cooler.

We also provide a television and DVD player, wireless Internet, an étagère with Hawaiian artifacts and a small library of books. The kitchen and bathroom are newly remodeled.

The Whaler, where the unit is housed, provides many resort-style amenities for an active couple, including direct access to the beach, a heated pool and Jacuzzi, tennis courts, a sauna and exercise facility, a concierge, and ocean-side barbeques for beachfront dining.

And, for adventurers ready to explore, there are dozens of options nearby, including some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving on Maui, helicopter tours, golf courses, ferry, bicycle trips down Haleakala, horseback riding in the upcountry, wineries, luaus, the Ulalena evening theater show, and moonlight dinner cruises leaving from Kaanapali Beach. You won’t want to leave.

As your host, I’m happy to help. Feel free to come to me with questions or for suggestions of Maui’s best activities.

Many of my guests are repeat guests—some of them came here first for their honeymoon and now return year after year for their anniversaries. That says something great about their experiences at my condo, and I think you’ll agree.

I hope you’ll take some time and visit here in paradise. To book your dates, get in touch today by phone, or by clicking the 'Email owner' button at the right—the calendar is filling fast! An additional benefit: No Booking Fee

Available dates can be found on the calendar below. You can reserve dates up to December 31, 2017.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We visit Maui each year and were delighted to find this studio rental. Bill was a pleasure to work with, made the process easy and the condo had all amenities you could ask for. The location, on the 10th floor, in tower 2 overlooked the Whaler Village and had a nice view of local activity, music and beaches. Beautiful.

The perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 12 days staying at The Whaler 1063 and cannot express what a perfect condo this is! First, the owner Bill is a pleasure to deal with and made things so easy.

The location is amazing, right on the ocean with beautiful views. Walking distance to shopping and restaurants made it all even better.

The condo is fully equipped with everything you could think of and all of the conveniences of home.

The bed is also so comfortable!

Loved it and hope to return!

Another excellent stay at Whaler 1063

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this unit before. There are many good reasons we are repeat customers. Well kept, clean, and a great view from the 10th floor.

The supplies are great too. Beach chairs, umbrellas, snorkel gear, etc. big help! The Whaler itself has also made improvements such as upgraded gym,etc.

Best equipped rental, great location, A+++

  • 5 of 5

First of all, my wife and I have probably stayed in about two dozen vacation condos and houses (mostly in Hawaii and Lake Tahoe areas). This one really impressed us as it was by far the best equipped place we have ever rented. It had everything you could need - boogie boards, snorkel gear, ice chests, beach chairs, every kitchen item, travel books, etc. They even had boxes of supplies you may need, such as band aids, sewing kit, clothes pins, and everything else. While we we there, the property manager even dropped by with a new fry pan, toaster, and coffee pot since someone else had said new ones were needed.

I'm sure you've read the other reviews, so you've seen all of the good words. Yes, the king sized bed really was comfortable. The view is amazing. Perhaps our favorite part was the large lanai. The lanai is big enough for two chairs, a table, and a chaise lounges. We spent a lot of time sitting there watching the view.

I really don't have anything bad to say. The staff was all very friendly. Guests can feed the koi fish every morning at 8:30 (great for kids, but fun for grown ups as well). The beach is amazing (head up to black rock to snorkel with turtles, a lot of them hanging out on the south side of the rock in the wave area).

We have never stayed in the same place twice, always opting for the excitement and opportunities of a new place, however, wife and I will stay here again. It is simply that nice. Great condo, and great location. Thank you!

Clean and Convenient Kaanapali Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at the Whaler, and first time in this unit. It was very clean and well-kept, with new carpet and comfortable bedding. A great perk of renting a condo is all the little "extras" like a beach umbrella and chairs, coolers, and body boards; this condo had all of this and more! Gorgeous views from the room and lanai, and of course an exceptional location right in the middle of gorgeous Kaanapali beach with a very fair nightly rate :)

One item to note with regards to the Whaler in general is that there's some construction and maintenance going on (as of May 2016). A large section of Whaler's Village shopping center (next door to the condo) is completely torn out, with construction crews working during business hours. At the condo complex itself, there's some roof work happening (solar panel installation, etc.) that causes quite a bit of loud noise in the unit during the daytime, and certain sections of the pool area were closed due to overhead work. Our stay was mostly over a weekend, so we benefited from having less work done during our stay. Again, this impacted the overall resort, and does not reflect on the terrific room.

Next time we're looking for a unit for two people, we'll be back! Thanks Bill for a wonderful beach condo!
