OCEAN FRONT 2B2B CONDO ON KAANAPALI BEACH MAUI

THE QUIETEST CONDO ON KAANAPALI BEACH

LAHAINA, THE EIGHTEENTH CENTURY WHALING CAPITAL IS 3 MILES AWAY

A WIDE VARIETY OF RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES JUST MINUTES AWAY

We bought this unit because we fell in love with the spectacular view visible from this corner penthouse ocean front spacious Condo with a wrap around Lanai. There is no finer view in all of the South Pacific with more than a 200 degree panorama of Kaanapali Beach, Maui's finest Beach together with scenic views of Lanai, Molokai, Kaanapali Beach and the West Maui Mountains. Floor to ceiling windows allow unobstructed ocean views from the completely remodeled bedrooms, living room, dining room and kitchen. Three flat screen HDTV's and in house washer and dryer provide convenient living options. Both bathrooms have been completely remodeled with floor to ceiling tile, granite counters and rain glass shower doors. The floors in the kitchen, entryways and hallway have been replaced with ceramic tile and new carpet has been installed throughout the rest of the condo.

The Whaler has recently completed more than $40 million worth of property renovations and enhancements over the last 5 plus years. The ocean front heated pool has a new paver deck and new 10 foot diameter hot tub. On the property there is a fully equipped exercise room, sauna, business center, and tennis courts. The newly redesigned courtyard with a new larger koi pond is magnificent. The covered garage between the towers has been refurbished including a new waterproof membrane over the roof. Both Towers have had their railings replaced and new tile applied to the lanai decks and both buildings have been repainted. A new wider more elegant driveway has been built at the Porte Cochere where you check-in. The entrance off Kaanapali Parkway has been redesigned.

The location puts convenience two world class golf courses close by, with at least a dozen restaurants within walking distance. Next door is The Whaler's Village Shopping Center with many upscale shops, a whaling museum. Five hotels, and five other condominium projects are nearby. A paved promenade allows easy strolling along Kaanapali beach. A free Trolley allows you ride between all the properties on Kaanapali Beach.

Lahaina, The Historic Whaling Capital of the Pacific is three miles away and contains many historic buildings dating from the early to mid 1800s plus shops, art galleries, restaurants, movie theaters, live theatre and a magic show production.

About Gordon Fall

Carole and Gordon Fall and their family have been coming to Maui since 1971. Carole is a retired anesthesiologist and Gordon is a semi-retired family physician in their home city of Seattle. Their family includes 3 children, two son-in-laws and 5 grandchildren. They purchased their first Maui home in The Whaler in 1976 and have owned three different units in The Whaler. Currently, they own and use 1252 which is the penthouse unit in Tower II. At least two to three times a year they stay in their unit in The Whaler for several weeks at a time. They are constantly upgrading the unit or adding or changing furnishings.

Gordon Fall purchased this condo in 1980

Why Gordon Fall chose Maui

Carole and Gordon have traveled extensively to every continent and have found that there is no better place than Maui to combine relaxation, peacefulness, safety, and a wide variety of recreational and entertainment activities with an ideal year round climate. This realization and the relatively easy access to Maui from Seattle prompted them to initially buy their first unit in The Whaler in 1975 and then as the family grew in 1980 bought this 2B2B unit to better accommodate the family.

What makes this condo unique

Staying in The Whaler allows you to walk the length of Kaanapali Beach and visit 5 hotels, numerous condominium projects, more than a dozen restaurants and many shops without ever having to cross a street. Swimming, surfing, fishing, snorkeling, sailing, tennis, golf, many restaurants and shops are just a few yards away. In 1252 in The Whaler you have both the finest view on Maui and the quietest location in The Whaler.

Spectacular view with phenomenal accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

This is my 14th trip to Hawaii. The stay at Whaler's at this unit overall was the best accommodations we have ever had. The unit was phenomenal. The view was unmatched of both the ocean and Haleakala. There was easy access to the beach. The tennis courts were in superb condition. The pool and Jacuzzi were great. The owner provided helpful instructions. Our entire family enjoyed this and hope we can do it again soon.

Maui is the best!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great week! Where to start? Even though we picked one of the busiest weeks of the year we had no problem with feeling like any part of the area was over crowded. We rarely had to wait more than a couple minutes for the elevator and we had no waiting to use the large grilles for dinner. The whole Whaler facility is basic but we felt that anything we needed was in easy walking or driving distance. The walkway along the beach is fantastic and stretches from the Black Rock down to the Hyatt Regency. Along the way is shopping at Whalers Village as well as sign ups and rentals for pretty much any water activity you would like to try. We wanted to see and do as much as we could in the week we were there. That is no where near long enough! Horseback riding at Mendes Ranch on the north side of the island, walking down to the blow hole, Kapalua Coastal trail, Front Street in Lahaina for dinner and nightlife, snorkeling at Black Rock, Luau, Ziplining, etc., etc., etc. The condo was a fabulous place to stay! Thanks! The pictures don't do it justice. Beautiful lanai, with spectacular views. Everything was perfect-plenty of room, comfy beds and gorgeous sunsets!

FABULOUS...Again!

  • 5 of 5

This was the 3rd time we have enjoyed this incomparable condo, undoubtedly with the BEST views on Maui and hopefully it won't be our last. These photos do not do it justice...there isn't even a photo of the ocean view and the ocean views are completely 180 degrees, along with fab mountain views (as if you'd ever look at them!) Private, nicely appointed, spotless. In a word, perfection.

Our first visit to Maui, but not our last!

  • 5 of 5

Keeping in theme with the other reviewers, this condo had an amazing view and all the amenities for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. We traveled to Maui for our first time and would definitely go back. The condo had ample space to put everything away whether in the bedrooms or bathroom and we enjoyed the A/C and wonderful breezes on the lanai. The view is breathtaking and can't be beat. We did our share of eating out and cooking in...the BBQ area and grills have recently been updated and we found ourselves eating outside under the stars a few nights. Would highly recommend to anyone particularly traveling as a family.

A perfect, memorable vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This condo has the best view on all of Kaanapali beach! With its oceanfront location on the top floor, you can see Lanai, Molokai, and an expansive view of the Maui mountains. It's breathtaking! This condo was very comfortable for my family of 5, with 3 teenagers. The location was perfect. It's right next door to Whaler's Village, restaurants and a short drive to Lahaina. Snorkeling at Black Rock at the opposite side of the beach, was incredible. Within 15 minutes of snorkeling there, I snorkeled over a shark, stingray, 2 huge sea turtles, a barracuda, and tons of fish. The condo was bright, clean, equipped with most everything you need, and very comfortable. I highly recommend this condo for a fantastic stay on Maui. We hope to be back!
