The property has a beautiful view and is located in the perfect place in the complex. The grounds are well maintained and are beautifully landscaped. We had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We highly recommend this property.

When you open the front door you immediately see the most beautiful views of the Beach, Ocean and Black Rock. We spent most of our time on the huge lanai and had all our meals there except one very nice dinner at Leilani’s. Sunsets were great. The unit was very spacious and allowed for lots of privacy to all of our family members with views from every room. We have stayed at the Alii before, but it doesn’t have the panoramic views of the Islands and Black Rock that The Whaler has. The complex was great with a big pool; spa and we both used the gym. We will be back.

We enjoyed our stay so much, we called the owner and booked our next trip while we were still on vacation. We enjoyed all the activities along Kaanapali Beach including the shopping and the restaurants at Whaler’s Village. We most enjoyed coming home at night and sitting on the lanai with that unbelievable view. We have never seen such a panoramic view. Thanks for letting us stay in your home.

Wonderful stay in 252 at the Whaler!

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from a fabulous week in unit 252 at The Whaler condos on Kaanapali beach. We usually stay in the Napili area but with our kids being older now, (23 and 19) we wanted to be in a busier area for them! The Whaler property is just beautiful and beach front. Grounds are taken care of and we grilled fish on the new BBQ's one evening. More adults than children which was fine with us! Unit 252 is a corner unit and sits on the front of one of the 2 towers so as close to the beach as you can get! The double Lani is just huge and we spent lots of time out there with our binoculars finding dolphins and whales! The pool is below the opposite tower so not much noise from that lower area and surprisingly not much noise from The Hula Grill which is right next door, although you can not see it through shrubbery. Not a problem. The unit itself is LARGE and spacious with incredible views! The bedrooms are large with lots of closet space and drawers (loved the two queen beds in the second room) and beds were very comfortable. Two full bathrooms worked for our family of 4 and we loved that the kitchen looked over the spacious family room and views out of all the sliding glass doors! The unit had everything we needed and we did not want for much of anything. 3 beach chairs were provided but would have been nice to have one more chair and an umbrella. Both bathrooms are due for a major remodel as well as the kitchen. The white carpet made us a bit nervous and needs to be replaced. None of these issues affected our love of the unit and our enjoyment of being in it for a week. The owners were prompt to respond to my booking request and answered all my questions quickly! A very easy process! Was lovely to walk to all the nearby restaurants and the Whaler outdoor shopping center. We rented paddle boards from the beach shack on the property and could have grabbed snorkel gear or boogie boards too! Thank you John & Trisha for a wonderful week in this gem of a property and introducing us to the Whaler Condos! We can't wait to return!
