Guestbook comments from the owner

Love the location of The Whaler! Enjoyed the beach and pool. Property was very clean. Nice area and grounds. The condo is large and comfortable.

We used the beachfront BBQ almost every night to grill out. Owner provided beach chairs & umbrella, which was nice. Great vacation; would definitely recommend this condo.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

This place and the location are amazing! We had two couples staying in the unit. The location was perfect for sitting on the lanai to people watch or just relax. We spent time on the beach and in the pool. Shopping and dining is a short walk away.

One evening we brought our dinner and wine down to the patio and BBQ'd steaks Maui pineapple while we watched the sunset.

This place is so well built we never heard noise except the ocean.

Pure heaven !

On a side note ... One thing I love about VRBO is that we knew exactly what we were getting down to the furnishings, before we got there. The owner was very attentive in communicating with us and giving us tips, in the days prior to our arrival.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Karin's condo at the Whaler was the perfect place for me and the kids to take a break! First, I loved that we could self-park below the building and take the elevator directly to the 4th floor. The kitchen was completely stocked - we were able to successfully cook several meals in the condo, which saved us lots of money (and grief from picky eaters!). After exploring the kitchen, I took note of several other characteristics of the condo - REAL carpet - not hotel-grade indoor-outdoor carpet.... it was so comfortable to walk around the condo! The closet inside the front door contains several boogie boards, umbrellas, beach chairs, sand toys, and more! The living area was ample and comfortable. My son slept on the sofabed - it was quite loud and not terribly comfortable, but it was functional and clean. The next thing I discovered was the lanai - The ocean view was spectacular! I fully utilized the table, chairs, and chaise that are provided. The grounds of the Whaler are well-maintained and we enjoyed seeing lots of plumeria and palm trees. I decided to look for the bedroom - but before I found it, I discovered the laundry room - It has a dated washer and dryer but they work very well. Also in the laundry room I discovered a small library, several board games, and extra bedding. From the laundry room, I wandered to the bathroom which was clean - I was a little surprised to find that toiletries were limited - there was shampoo but no conditioner - and we had to purchase toilet paper - but I was able to pick up some at the store. The bedroom was private, cool, and had its own thermostat and ceiling fan. It was a comfortable room with a large king-size bed. The bed is very firm and loud, but functional (definitely not what I'd describe as "comfortable" or "plush.") The best part of the condo is its location - literally steps to the best part of Ka'anapali beach - and within walking distance of anything you could need or want. It's a few hundred feet to Black Rock, it's next door to Whaler's Village with shopping and dining options. The on-site pool is wonderful and there are ample chaises and cabanas to relax on. All of the Whaler staff that we encountered were helpful, pleasant, and welcoming. Will/Would I stay here again? Absolutely - Definitely.

Aloha Karin,

Mahalo for letting us stay in your beautiful Condo, It was exactly as you said, Just better, Lots of supplies to get us started, Very clean and comfortable and you have thought of everything a family could need, Whaler staff and employees are very friendly and helpful, Whaler property is beautiful and very clean.

We used your CD of road to Hana which was very nice, A closet full of beach toys, beach chairs and coolers were very helpful. The condo is right in the middle of everything, The beachwalk love it, Lelani's resturant real close by used it about 6 times ( love their food) Magic show couple bldg's up the beachwalk, Laua's all over, and the ocean just outside your door so beautiful, Lot of watersports just right on the beach.

I would reccomend this condo to anyone and hope to stay there again, It just has a homey fill if thats a word, Sofa bed and king bed very comfortable.

We spent a lot of time on the lanai just looking at the ocean. Mahalo again karin very satisfied.

PS My wife said to mention the dryer and curling iron that was in the linen closet, Didn't use it, but nice to know it was there.

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time and absolutely loved this condo! This unit is very nicely appointed - feels like you are home! Very comfortable. Beautiful View. All the necessities in the kitchen. The washer and dryer is a great bonus! I came home with only 3 articles of dirty clothes....avoiding the dreaded chore of vacation laundry. We look forward to our next visit!

Nice Place

  • 2 of 5

My wife and I went recently for our honeymoon. The condo was a nice place, but the bed was terribly uncomfortable! The building was a little dated with a weird smell on the first floor and the workout room was not available. We had to walk 20 minutes to another workout facility which we found very inconvenient! Wish we were given a heads up on that. A little disappointed in the service from the building as well. Overall it was an okay stay. Nothing outstanding but nothing terrible.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience at our condo. We're glad that you found our unit to be a nice place for your visit to Maui. Of course, the comfort of a bed is a personal choice, so we selected a mattress that is not too firm and not too soft. We have had the mattress set for a few years and not received a single complaint. Based on our other guests' feedback, we feel confident that our guests will continue to be pleased with the comfort of the bed. The recent upgrade to the Fitness Center is one example of how The Whaler is continuously improving their amenities to provide an exceptional guest experience. We do our best to notify guests of any inconveniences, and were very pleased to offer the Hyatt Regency Fitness Center as an alternative. Thank you again for staying at our condo. Mahalo, Karin
