It's GREAT!

  • 5 of 5

We are so happy we chose Julie's condo - everything about it was great! Great location, great view, great owner to work with. (I know I'm going to overuse "great" but everything really was...GREAT!) This unit has a really large lanai. Both the living room and bedroom have a slider onto the lanai and offer a beautiful view. It was easy to walk to all of the restaurants on Ka'anapali Beach and Whaler's Village is right next door if you're looking for "shoportunities". Black Rock, the world famous snorkeling spot, is just two resorts down the way and an easy walk - either on the pristine beach or on the paved walkway. The condo is well stocked but even with that, there is plenty of storage so you can fully unpack and relax! The barbeques are right on the beach and we used them often. Working with the owner is a true pleasure from friendly e-mails to specific and thorough details she provides to help enjoy your vacation even more. We'll leave it to others to mention all the things to see and do - when we go to Maui, we go to relax and we "do" as little as possible. This unit is large and provided a very comfortable place for us to relax and recharge before coming back to our hectic lives. I concur with other reviewers' positive comments and don't want to be too repetitious or long-winded (too late?) but I definitely recommend this unit! Mahalo, Julie, for sharing your piece of paradise with us.

Great spot in Kaanapali

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Julie's condo for a week in Dec-January 2016. We loved it! The condo was actually a lot bigger than we imagined. It was very spacious and had a lot of closet space which was nice since we always overpack. The lanai is really big and the perfect spot to watch the Maui sunsets. There was a giant selection of beach gear (chairs, umbrella, snorkel gear, cooler, boogie boards, etc.) provided in the condo which made it so easy (and cheap) to just head to the beach. The kitchen has every gadget you could possibly need. We love staying at the Whaler and this condo seemed like an usually great deal. We will definitely be back!!!

MAUI VACATION - AMAZING STAY AT THE WHALER

  • 5 of 5

This was my first trip to Maui &the first time my husband , daughter and I booked this condo at the Whaler. I was a little weary at first since I have always opted to stay in hotels. However, when we first stepped into this condo we had nothing but smiles on our faces, it was so nice. I've heard from people that a view does not matter because you are not in the room that much but I have to tell you "IT VIEW DOES MATTER". THIS CONDO HAD THE MOST SPECTACULAR VIEW OF THE BEACH AND AMAZING OCEAN. The lanai was huge, had 2 lounge chairs & a higher table with chairs so you could easily look over the rails to see the beautiful colors of the ocean. We actually sat out on the lanai each morning, afternoon & evening to see the sunsets. Our condo was just beautifullllll, 2 large screen TV's, binoculars, the most comfortable sleep number bed you could imagine, a kitchen stocked with everything you could think, chairs for the beach with other beach toys &more. There was so much closet & drawer space, a very nice bathroom area with separate space to get ready in. There is a washer and dryer conveniently located right down the hall . The couches were so comfortable & I have to say, this condo added to making our vacation that dream vacation in paradise that we hoped it would be. It is in a great location and takes just a few minutes to get to such a spectacular beach where you can walk along a path that has many restaurants & shops along it. You can easily park right below the condo & if that is filled up you can park next to it which is a quick walk. And the owner of the condo was very nice & easy to talk to & even suggested a list of things for us to do while we were on the island and all this information was in a packet she sent us which was very helpful. The entire property was also very nicely kept, very clean and pretty. The only one negative I can think of is that we only stayed 10 days and we all wish we had stayed a little longer. I couldn't have imagined a better vacation than this and this condo we stayed in really added to the lovely time we had on our trip to Maui. We have been looking into going to the Carribean this year, however, we keep comparing everything to this vacation in Maui and this condo at the Whaler & think we might just go back there again because it was such a great & fun experience. You know you had a good experience on a vacation when you keep raving about it and are still talking about it weeks after you come home.

Great relaxing place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay! It has amazing views, is well kept, and has many amenities - Keurig, Sleep Number bed, Flat screen TV's, plenty of closet space, etc.. We enjoyed our honeymoon stay here very much, and would recommend this unit to our friends/ family any time. Julie had excellent communication before our stay, and was accessible during our stay if needed at anytime, as well as offering many helpful ideas for tours, and other items for our stay. We really enjoyed our time here, and will be back in the future. Thanks Julie!

Comfortable, perfect Kaanapali Beach location, excellent owner communication......

  • 4 of 5

Julie is a very responsible and responsive owner and a pleasure to deal with. Her condo is generous in size and super comfortable including a king size sleep number bed and a double wide lanai with great views of the sunrise and the sunset! The furniture is classic Hawaiian wicker throughout and is perfect for an island vacation. All the entertainment essentials are there including WiFi, two very wide screen TV's, DVD player, etc. The kitchen and bathroom are somewhat dated but fully functional. Everything necessary is onsite including two coffee makers, every appliance necessary in the full kitchen, and a full complement of beach toys. The Whaler building is very well located on that section of Kaanapoli Beach which enjoys about a two mile paved walk connecting the southern end of the beach to Black Rock on the northern end and offers the perfect venue for a morning constitutional walk and an evening stroll for people watching plus connection to the many good restaurants on the water. Parking is under the building and there's never a wait for an elevator in this very well maintained property. There is a very handy trash chute in the elevator lobby which also contains a mini laundry for guests. We stayed a week and it was a perfect base to explore the entire island......which we did!!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your time on Maui and in our beautiful unit. It is true we have chosen not to update our kitchen and bath with granite and new cabinets and instead added things that we felt are more important for our guests comfort while in our unit. This is why we shipped from the mainland a California King Sleep Number bed so that every guest could find the perfect level of comfort while sleeping away from home. We added several small kitchen appliances, large L-shaped sofa like you would have at home and the little things to make your stay easy and comfortable whether you are a couple or a family. Though the kitchen might not have a new granite counter top, we do have new high quality Cuisinart pots & pans, Keurig coffee maker, a wild variety of glassware/plastic ware and lots of small appliances you would not expect to find in a vacation rental. This has allowed us to keep the nightly rate at a more affordable level while fitting into a larger range of budgets for more guest which we felt was more important then a new kitchen/bath. Thank you so much selecting our unit for your stay, it sounds like you had an amazing time and got the best use out of our unit while there. We look forward to you returning on your next stay in Maui. All the best, Julie

GREAT condo, views, owner

  • 5 of 5

There are good reasons most of Julie's reviews are 5 Stars. She has gone above and beyond in furnishing & maintaining this unit, and her communication is second to none ( I have rented a lot on HomeAway/VRBO, so I don't take that for granted). We took is trip for our 25th anniversary, and Julie understood that it was the trip of a lifetime, and a huge investment. She made everything seamless from the airport to groceries to parking tips. The unit is closer to the beach than most, and 7 stories up... I expected the great ocean views, but was amazed at how beautiful the mountain views were as well. This unit is on the best side of the best building. You could stay here and not drive for days (good restaurants walkable), but easy in & out if you do. Spectacular sunsets EVERY night for us. Our last night we wised up and enjoyed it from the balcony with a drink. Julie, thank you so much for helping us have a great anniversary!

Owner's Response: Yes, this was a trip of a lifetime! You did a lot of homework on Maui and it was a pleasure helping you put the final touches on your first trip there. We look forward to you returning so you can celebrate another anniversary and see the parts of Maui you didn't have time for. Thank you again for selecting our unit for such a special occasion! Cheers! Julie
