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.

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 Kaanapali
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.

In 1252 in The Whaler you have both the finest view on Maui and the quietest location in The Whaler.

Christmas 2017-New Years 2018
This is a very nice condo with great views. Weather and water were wonderful. Went over to Molokai and Lanai for guided day trips. Also drove the road to Hana (rent the tour guide app for your phone $6), snorkled, ziplined, went deep sea fishing, went to Luau, did volcano downhill bike ride, did the submarine tour, and ocean kayaked. It was very convenient being located right next to Whaler's Village. Mama's fish House in Paia was excellent. Overall, Maui and Whaler1252 were a great vacation destination.
We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in Maui, and this condo really made our trip to the islands special. The location cannot be beat, with a beautiful beach, snorkeling, swimming, shopping and restaurants at your door step. The view from the unit is phenomenal and many hours were spent on the lanai enjoying cocktails, conversation and beautiful sunsets. The unit was spotless, and fully stocked with everything you need for a comfortable stay. I greatly appreciated all the great insights and information Gordon provided us regarding the condo and the area. The front desk staff was extremely friendly, helpful and made us feel very welcome at check in and during our stay. I look forward to future trips to Maui, and leasing this unit again. I can honestly and unequivocally recommend this unit! Thanks Gordon for Maui memories!
Best view on Kaanapali!
We are frequent guests of the Whaler over many years. This visit was our best! The view from this unit is the best you will find. The owner was extremely easy to work with very accommodating for all of our needs. The Whaler has invested in significant upgrades over the past several years and all of the amenities now are great. You will not want to go back home!
This review has taken too long to write because our 1252 Penthouse experience was too great! We can’t write a review that accurately describes 1252, but here is our attempt...there is much more.
The 1st time you enter 1252 the view will stop you. When we 1st walked in my daughter and granddaughter walked in first, then stopped. My wife and I bumped into them until we saw the view. WOW!
The porch was our morning and evening spot. Our morning coffee tasted special there.
Beach activities and access are indescribable. Surf lessons were fun and challenging. Snorkeling the best. Beach people friendly and helpful.
There is so much more…
Perfect as always
Once again, our stay at #1252 Condo was perfect. Being on the top floor we got to enjoy seeing whales breach that no one else saw, we also got to see at least 4 turtles each and every morning going south. Just relaxing on the lani, watching the sunrise & sunset didn't get any better. Shopping & the night life close by is a plus, The Whaler Village offers a good selection of shopping.
Many Thanks to Gordon & Carole for letting enjoy their 2nd home as our home. We will return.
This week was a blessing for our family. The condo was beyond beautiful and all we can talk about is how to figure out a way to come back every year. Thank you so much!
The Whaler is located in the middle of a destination resort on Maui's Finest Beach. You can swim, sun bathe, snorkel, surf, boogie board, kite surf, snorkel, sail, scuba dive, walk the beach, golf or eat out within just a few meters of The Whaler.
