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.

Truly Outstanding Vacation at Whaler 802 in Maui

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five reserved The Whaler 802 from 11/11 to 11/17/17. From the second we pulled up to the front entrance through to the very sad moment we checked out, our vacation there was absolutely a sheer delight.

The residence had two spacious bedrooms which was ample room for our little group. This unit was very updated with many modern conveniences and appearance. Being in this corner location and ocean/beach front location that was eight floors up made for splendid views of the ocean, beach and spectacular sunsets. The long, well furnished wrap around balcony provided just about every view you could possibly want to see. The master bedroom greeted us with complimentary bathrobes and chocolates and the balcony view provided splendid views and lots of light. The master bath with a large step in glass shower stall combined with the deep garden bath tub (and TV) was perfect after a long day of activities.

The entire unit was well furnished with tasteful furnishing and decorations and the kitchen had every possible item you could need including a large refrigerator and freezer.

There was a big cabinet at the end of the balcony which contained all sorts of water activity equipment including beach chairs, umbrella, snorkeling gear and other items we didn't even have a chance to use. There was a large pool for guests and residents to use plus a hot tub to soothe those achy tired muscles and was adjacent to three professional style gas grills which were extensively used at dinner time. There was plenty of parking in an underground garage as well as a large outside parking area. The bellmen and the concierge staff were terrific and extremely helpful. Buying groceries was a short drive away as were excellent restaurants and the airport.

In summary, if you want a five star vacation get away home, this is the absolute best place to stay and worth every penny you pay to stay there. Personally, we would rate it 10 stars if there was that category.

If you want a totally worry free and incredibly comfortable place to stay, this is really the only and best place to stay. We didn't have even the slightest of nitpicking issues to mention. JaNell McCullough was the perfect owner and host who made sure everything was well maintained and helped us with any questions we had. We just couldn't have asked for anything more and highly recommend that folks stay at this perfect home.

Condo was exactly as advertised and much more.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Janell's condo and absolutely loved it. We will make every effort to stay in 802 again every time we head out to Maui. The condo is steps away from the pool and the beach and is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. Stunning view from the lanai, especially of the beach/ocean and the nightly sunset. It was difficult to leave and would recommend 802 to anyone thinking of staying in Kaanapalli. We definitely plan to be back.

Fabulous 2/2 Corner Unit #802!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough about this gorgeous corner unit on the 8th floor!!

The finish out in this condo is beautifully updated!! Beautiful floors, counters, cabinets, in both baths and kitchen. (AND THE REST)

The beds were super comfortable...thats a HUGE deal to me!

And the view??? WOW There aren't words, beach, black rock, & mountain views every time you turn your head, you see something beautiful!

This is a fully stocked unit...I felt like I was staying at a friends house because of all the unexpected extras.

The owners could not have been nicer or more accommodating, from beginning to end!

Also, what a great location on the island, restaurants, shops and activities right outside your door.

I wish i could think of more...but I have NOTHING negative to say.

I will recommend this unit to everyone I know

Perfect Maui condo time after time!

  • 5 of 5

Our first experience with Janel and Simon was our trip to Maui in 2002 and we have stayed in their condo every trip since then. They have been very courteous and easy to work with on each on our trips. Our latest trip, 2/24/17-3/9/17, was our 6th stay there. Over the years, the condo has been consistently beyond our expectations. There isn't a more perfect view of Kaanapali Beach or Black Rock. The condo itself has been meticulously kept up to date with top end appliances and furnishings. The kitchen is well stocked with all the needed pots, pans and dishes. The pantry is well stocked as well. The outside cabinet has all the beach equipment needed. (boogie boards, chairs, toys etc.) The Whaler is centrally located on Kaanapali Beach next to the Whaler Village Shopping area with numerous restaurants close by and a 5 minute drive to Lahaina. It is a dream to vacation here. You really never want to leave!
