About the property

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Considered an outstanding Studio at The Whaler, A+ Designer Remodeled, Spectacular Views of entire Bay of Black Rock, Ocean, Molokai & West Maui Mountains.

Please note the OwnerWebsite has posted renovation dates Aug 15 - Dec 15, 2016 of the one story Lobby building [at the back of the Courtyard, between the two 12 story Towers]. They expect demo noise, especially in the first two months. Being closer to the oceanfront on the North [Black Rock] side of Tower 1 [not Courtyard], should be less disruptive.

The Whaler is the only Condo resort on Kaanapali Beach located 50 feet from the ocean front with the white sand swimming beach, rated one of the 10 Best, of the 'Worlds Best Beaches' and Maui's #1 best beach.

This luxury unit is located in the quiet part of the complex, on the most private side of Tower 1. Being on the North side of the complex, the condo does not look into other units across the courtyard, and is 2 floors above the hotel next door. The 14 'stack' are the closest Studios to the ocean front. Lull yourself to sleep with the sound of the surf.

Providing maximum comfort and peace, the Lanai balcony has outstanding views of the Ocean, Black Rock, Molokai, Winter Humpback Whales, Summer Sunsets, and the ever present Maui Rainbows, while enjoying a sunny morning breakfast, afternoon shade, and Black Rock's nightly torch lighting.

Totally remodeled including all new Light Maple cabinetry throughout the Kitchen, Bath, Vanity and Walk-in Closet with 'California Closet' style system of drawers, cubbies, hanging storage and luggage rack.

Professionally decorated, and furnished 'Island style'. Expanded to a 'U shape', the full size enlarged, totally equipped Kitchen has paneled Sub Zero Frig/Ice & Bosch dishwasher. Granite countertops in the Kitchen and in the Vanity dressing area with it's mirror surround. The ceilings have been raised and custom lighting installed in the kitchen and vanity with designer lighting throughout the rest of the unit.

Large flat screen HDTV, 5 speaker Home Theater System with CD/DVD/I Pod Docking station, library of CD's, DVD's, Books, etc.

From the King bed, with the most comfortable mattress [top-of-line, as used at The Ritz], the Ocean is reflected in the floor to ceiling mirrors.

Desk if you must work; upgraded secure WIFI with private secure password for this unit only.

The Whaler has free Washer/Dryer's on every floor. They are located near the elevator bank, across from the trash shute.

About Marianne Moloney

Our home is in Rancho Mirage, California; however Maui is our treasured second home.

Marianne Moloney purchased this condo in 2005

Why Marianne Moloney chose Maui

As a guest at The Whaler for over 20 years, I wanted my own 'home-away-from home'. The Whaler condominium property is unique in that it is on Maui's #1 beach, and has great new tennis courts. Right outside your doorstep, The Whaler location is convenient for ocean front swimming and snorkeling, 2 golf courses, many restaurants, and world class shopping next door at Whalers Village, which also has an ABC convenience market. The great snorkel beach at Black Rock is just steps away. The Whaler Condo/Hotel with front desk services, activities/concierge service, business center, bell desk, gym, sauna, and salon, meets every travelers needs.

What makes this condo unique

Wonderfully upgraded, totally remodeled and designer furnished, the intimate lanai has and a spectacular view of the entire bay of Black Rock.

During winter months, you can watch the whale migration from the lanai.

The expanded full size kitchen is a pleasure to work in, with the ocean reflected in the mirror wall.

A+ Luxury Remodeled Studio #814 Tower 1, Ocean/Black Rock View
average rating of 4.836735 based on 49 reviews

We loved this studio condo! It has been the best condo that we have stayed in in Maui.

  • 5 of 5

This condo is beautiful. The views are fantastic. We loved sitting and having breakfast on the lanai and whale watching was the best. The kitchen is well equipped for a cook like me. My husband likes a big breakfast so it was great to cook in such a clean and nice kitchen. We like all of the closet space and all of the hangers as we like to unpack everything and not live out of a suitcase. We like the 8th floor as we like to sit on the lanai both in the morning and at night when we came "home" from our busy day. Everything was neat, clean, and tidy and everything in working order. Marianne is also wonderful to work with.

Great View, Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

Well furnished, easy to unpack due to walk in closet with drawers and shelves. Well equipped kitchen. Quality appliances. Bed was very comfortable, nice soft pillows. It was a working vacation so the desk was perfect. Loved hearing the waves at night and the view of the ocean and black rock. Nice staff at the Whaler. Would book this unit again.

The best location on Kaanapoli Beach

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in several different units at The Whaler, both studio and one bedroom. This studio was by far the best, with high end appliances, Tommy Bahama decor, and a view of Black Rock that can't be beat. The north-facing lanai was usable all day as there was no direct sun except early in the morning. Add the location next door to Whaler's Village, with restaurants and shopping, and there is no reason to stay anywhere else.

The most perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Wow. All my husband and I can say when we look back on that trip was wow! Marriane was so accommodating and helped us with just about everything we needed. She supplies a lot of your essentials for the trip (beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, pots/pans, kitchen needs, etc). The hotel provides a washer/dryer that you can use for free. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We absolutely loved the fact that we could cook lunch/dinner if we wanted, or go out to some amazing restaurants. Our getaway felt more of a home v. a hotel room that we were stuck in. Everything is in walking distance as you're next door to multiple restaurants and stores for shopping. Just about a 5 minute drive to Lahaina as well. My husband and I went out there for a babymoon, but are planning to already come back with our new baby girl sometime in the next few years. We loved it.

Kaanapali Beach has fantastic snorkeling in the Bay of Black Rock, in front of the Sheraton Hotel to the North. The beach is Maui's #1 beach and one of the 10 best beaches in the world. Walk to Whalers Village shopping center and restaurants next door on the South side of Tower 2. From our super most private location on the North side of Tower 1, we do not have cooking smells from the restaurants, nor the very early morning trash and delivery trucks to Whalers Village.
