Guestbook comments from the owner

We call this our home away from home. JaNell and Simon, the owners go over the top to make us feel like while we are here this is our home. The view is the best on Kaanapali, none better. Everything is provided in the condo and of the highest quality. We love the beds, they are so comfortable and cozy. This is our third year traveling to their condo and we are trying to work out a date for next year with an additional week. Mahalo

My Response

Mahalo for your thoughtful and kind review. We are looking forward to your return to our Whaler suite 802. Sincerely JaNell and Simon.

The Whaler 802

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I love staying at The Whaler. It is the best location in Maui with everything close to the condo - restaurants, shopping and snorkeling. The Whaler 802 is more than we could have imagined. Once you stay here, you will never want to stay anywhere else. We were 4 adults on this trip. When the owners, JaNell and Simon, say they want this to feel like your home, it is an understatement. JaNell was so gracious in our planning. This condo really has all the comforts of home plus more. There is a huge variety of cooking spices, flour, sugar, olive oil and coffee. The bathrooms are fully stocked with shampoo, soaps and lotions. And the icing on the cake, the condo has the most spectacular ocean and sunset views of any unit we have stayed in and it is beautifully decorated. You will never want to leave. They also have plenty of beach supplies for your use. It will be hard for us to rent any other condo (even if it is just the two of us) after experiencing the magic of 802. We can't wait to plan our next trip. Thank you JaNell and Simon for sharing your home. Michelle & Chuck Akers, Dallas, TX

A true gem

  • 5 of 5

The Whaler Suite 802 offers an incredible level of luxury in a perfect location. While a hotel may be able to match this feeling of luxury, the essence here is that this luxury is paired with a relaxed, cosy atmosphere you would normally only experience at home.

That is a unique combination and this is why I recommend to book Suite 802 wholeheartedly.

The suite:

Everything you can dream of is there, in great quality and mint condition. This goes from the kitchen with everything from high quality cutlery to elegant tableware to the top notch Miele, Sub-Zero and Bosch appliances. When you enter a hotel room or suite, and many condos, you will find that it's "dry", i.e. you will have to buy everything from Salt and Pepper onwards. Not here! The kitchen is perfectly stocked with probably around 40-50 different seasonings and just about everything you could possibly need to get started. All you need to buy yourself are the daily groceries.

This setup might be tricky in some places, where you may find yourself a bit uncomfortable using "someone else's" kitchen. Not here!

The whole suite was so spotless, clean and shiny that we felt completely at ease and we did not hesitate to use whatever we needed.

JaNell puts a lot of effort into making you feel at home. It was a complete success from the moment we came in!

What else?

The luxury of course does not end in the kitchen. It goes on to the living room with it's unbeatable corner, ocean front view that extends over the nicest part of Kaanapali beach to the black rock, over to Molokai in the north and Lanai in the west.

Bedrooms and bathrooms - especially the huge master bathroom including TV - are equally pleasant and luxurious and you can enjoy the ocean view from both bedrooms equally well.

Still more?

Lots and lots of useful details, like the Miele Washer and Dryer that is essential when travelling for a longer period, especially with Children.

The pool: This is really a weak point of the Whaler. The pool is small and mostly rectangular and therefore - understandably - kids games and toys are restricted. Since our kids were not used to swimming in the ocean before our trip, I thought that this might develop into a real issue, but I am more than happy to report that the kids loved the beach instantly so much that we did not use the pool for anything else but to clean off the part of the sand which did not come off on the beach shower.


You cannot go wrong when you stay here.

Absolutely stunning home!!!!

  • 5 of 5

First let me start with how wonderful it was to deal with the owner, JaNell Mccullough. She was the most delightful person and was so very gracious and generous with sharing her property and all the beach goodies that were there. She was also available at any time for the many questions I had. The home is absolutely stunning, so well appointed and beautifully decorated. The kitchen and baths are stocked well with all the essentials one would need. The wrap around balcony was furnished with so many seating options and the views were spectacular - We enjoyed our coffees in the morning and our cocktail at sunset every day.

I must also add that the beds and pillows were the most comfortable I've had when traveling. This was such a pleasant surprise. Not too firm! and not too soft........they were just right.

I would highly recommend #802 to anyone that wants the comforts of home with a stunning decor and spectacular view. We will most definitely be returning. Thanks JaNell for everything and for making our stay so wonderful.

PS - Kim the housekeeper was very attentive to our needs and did a super job for us midweek.

The best of the best

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for an amazing unit, with the best view, top quality furnishings and luxurious surroundings, this is the one you want. I have stayed at the Whaler many time before and I can tell you this is the most beautiful unit I have been in. It is equipped with everything imaginable from snorkel gear to shampoo, just as though it was your own home. The owners are so nice and easy to deal with. If you want the best of the best, this is really it.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

This unit is absolutely gorgeous!! The property is so tastefully decorated and liveable. The owners have thought of everything, it is so well equipped, it is like living at home. The views are spectacular and unbelievable. We have stayed at this complex probably 10 times in the last 10 years and this suite is our favorite. The property is perfect for your getaway, family or couple. Don't hesitate--JaNell the owner is so kind and prompt to deal with. The location is perfect, you are at the center of all Kaanapalli has to offer.
