Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in your Whaler condo #515 for five nights in

July. The view from the balcony was breathtaking. It was the most wonderful vacation and your condo is just beautiful and so comfortable. Thank you so very much for the welcome basket. I will definitely stay here if I ever get the chance to get back and I will definitely tell all my friends that are

lucky enough to visit Maui.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Loved the condo! The location was perfect and for a studio was very spacious. All you need was in the condo; including beach chairs, umbrella and a small cooler for the beach! The view was also ideal. The beach outside The Whaler is one of the best areas on Kaanapali Beach. Also the location of the Whaler is great because you can walk to restaurants and great shopping. We had a wonderful time...

Beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from our dream trip to Hawaii. We stayed in this unit for 8 nights and spent our 7th wedding anniversary here. I can't say enough about this unit. It is beautiful. You can tell the owner has put a lot of time and effort into this place, right down to the dolphin toilet paper holder. My husband and I spent all our time in the water in Maui and greatly appreciate all the detail paid to ocean life in this condo. The bed is very comfortable, the bathroom and dressing area beautiful. The kitchen is like brand new and the view really tops everything off. For a studio, it is more than big enough for 2 people. The Whaler is in the middle of the most beautiful beach we saw on Maui and is right next to Whaler Village, which allows for shopping and restaurants within walking distance. If you snorkel or dive, Black Rock is about a 5 minute walk down the beach and is beautiful with abundant sea life. We even saw 2 white tip shark here! My correspondence with the owner was always quick and he was very helpful, even recommending which luau to go to (we took your advice and went for our anniversary and it was fabulous, thanks!!) The whole vacation was awesome and I truly believe it was because we were in a good location and had a beautiful condo to go home to each evening. We hope to spend our 10th anniversary in Maui and I would love to rent this unit again. Mahalo

Beautifully decorated, well equipped, great Kaanapali location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this Whaler unit for four nights at the end of April after having spent one week in a two bedroom condo in South Kihei. Transitioning from a two bedroom condo to a studio took us a bit to get used to but we found the unit to be beautifully decorated, very comfortable, and have everything we needed. We especially admired the bamboo ceilings and the mosiac in the bathroom shower. The bed and furniture were quite comfortable. Everything was just as pictured online and the view is great taking in the beach and koi pond! The owner has a nice selection of books, music, and movies. Parking was no problem. We parked down by the tennis courts for easy access to the entrance to the unit. Having Whaler Village and the restaurants next door was fun. We enjoyed Hula Grill and other bars and restaurants along the beach stroll. We saw huge sea turtles while snorkling at Black Rock and spent a couple of days on the part of the beach north of Black Rock (other side of the Sheraton) where it was very peaceful and the sand and water are just perfection! We drove up to Kapalua and did the Coastal walk. Also, checked out the shops in Lahaina and had great dinner at a fairly new restaurant named Koa. All in all, we were very pleased with our stay at this unit in the Whaler. The owners have done a fine job outfitting the studio and the location was great!
