Overview

Lahaina Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Welcome to The Whaler Unit 514 on Kaanapali Beach - the best beach resort in the world! We are located in the Whaler Resort which has just received the coveted AAA 3 Diamond status and is currently top ten ranked resorts in Lahaina. Our condo has been completely remodeled to “PREMIUM” Status including king size Serta Presidential Suite bed, fully furnished with designer touches including 37' flat panel HD 1080P LCD TV, blu ray player, gourmet stainless steel appliances, stunning upgraded granite counters and cherry wood cabinets in the kitchen and bath. You will enjoy the walk-in frameless glass shower tiled in travertine with beach pebble accents and the luxury of “his” and “hers” sinks in the vanity.

Record all your favorite sports and TV show for later viewing after you beach time and island activities with our free HD DVR service.

New! Recent updates include new travertine tile floor and new plush carpeting, brand new lighting and contemporary styled bedroom, living and dining area furniture including LED night lights under the night stands, with convenient finger touch control.

You will love our Top of the Bed - which includes triple sheets providing a Modern styled and sanitary finishing touch. Not your granny’s old bedspread!

NOTE: Our condo rate includes daily maid service (15 minutes/day) guaranteeing that you won’t EVER have to vacuum, launder your towels or have to make the bed during your stay, no extra cleaning or check-in fees, free broadband internet and WiFi, and is managed by ASTON HOTELS and RESORTS property management providing 24 Hour On-Site, Front Desk and Hotel Operator Services to ensure that your needs are met at any time, day or night, and in a timely manner -- amenities not always available with other condos at Whaler.

The recently landscaped courtyard with dramatic waterfall and koi pond, welcoming porte cochere drive up entrance, remodeled pool, spa, fitness center, free beach chairs , tennis courts and garage will make your vacation experience better than ever!

**NOTE** There will be construction work on our lobby building starting on August 15 and ending on December 15, 2016. There will be noise from 8am to 5pm Monday to Friday. Our lobby building is located in the courtyard between the two Whaler buildings. My condo is on the side that does not face the courtyard. You may hear some noise, but it will be much less than if you were facing the courtyard.

**NOTE** If the dates you are looking for are already reserved for my condo unit 514, please contact me for availability at another Whaler Premium rated studio. Since my property is managed by ASTON HOTELS and RESORTS, I have access to special 'owner referral' rates! I can also request availability for 1 or 2 bdm units.

***NOTE*** Please contact owner for AAA, Military, Government employee or '50 years old and older' rates

Wake up every morning to the sounds of the waves on the beach and birds in the trees just outside your private lanai. Each evening relax on the bar height chairs and table of your private lanai, enjoy a Mai Tai and watch the Hawaiian diver dive off the cliff at Black rock at sunset - a great way to start your night time activities before heading out to dinner at a beachfront restaurant just next door!

Beach and ocean activities including swimming, surfing, snorkeling, scuba, stand up paddling and sailing are just steps away or, if you prefer, you can chill out by our remodeled pool and spa. Tee off at the Kaanapali Golf Course or play a game of tennis at one of the Whaler’s courts. When you are ready for lunch or dinner, you are right next door to outstanding restaurants at Whaler’s Village (world class shopping, too!) or along the beach boardwalk.

A highlight of your trip from December to March will be watching the humpback whales from the lanai or taking a whale watching boat trip which can be arranged by the concierge at the Whaler.

Note: please send me an email if you would like me to send you larger pictures!

Note: Please call or email for 'extended stay' rates of 14 days or longer.

**NOTE** If you are planning a family gathering, please call me. I own another condo at a nearby property with studio, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom units that is a great place for a family reunion.

About Michele

We have vacationed on Maui for over 25 years. After staying at all the resort hotels on Kaanapali from the Hyatt Regency on down to the Sheraton and elsewhere on Maui we decided to purchase our condominium at The Whaler - on the best beach on Maui and considered by many to be the best beach resort in the world! Location, Location, Location! The Whaler is in the heart of Kaanapali Beach right next door to Whaler's Village with wonderful beachfront restaurants and world class shopping. Snorkeling at Black Rock just down the beach from the Whaler is awesome! We love having the convenience of our condo for cooking our own meals when we want to and the access to great restaurants when we want something special! We recently completely remodeled our condo to 'A' status including limestone tiled walk-in shower, 'his' and 'hers' sinks and granite counters in the bathroom, water saving toilet, stainless steel appliances, granite counter and cherry wood cabinets in the kitchen, a brand new king size bed and new 37' Hi Def flat panel TV. All professionally decorated for relaxing and comfortable resort living. We are sure you will enjoy our little piece of paradise as much as we do! P.S. In our photo, we are having a lot of fun at the Halloween Parade in Lahaina!

Michele purchased this condo in 2005

Our condo is on the quiet side of Tower 1 perched just above the trees. We enjoy views of the beach and the mountains

Guestbook comments from the manager

My husband and I can't say enough about our stay in this condo... it was perfect! Spacious, immaculate, well-maintained and a central location to all the activities Michele recommended. The informational email she sent before our departure for Maui was very informative and, in addition, she was open to a telephone conversation when we had further questions. We experienced killer calamari at the Hula Grill next door and Michele's son's favorite dessert at Leilani's - Hula Pie, and breakfast (our favorite at Aloha Mixed Plate right on the ocean front as you enter Lahaina). Snorkeling with the recommended rashgard shirts to prevent sunburn (get great deals on these at Costco by the airport), we found Honolua Bay the best because it is sheltered from the wave action. Our suggestion is to rent a waist flotation device if you are not an excellent swimmer... saves energy and a lot safer. Our favorite tourist things were the Saturday market in Kahului, arts and crafts market in Lahaina by the Post Office on Sunday, Haleakala at sunrise, the Warren and Annabelle Magic Show in Lahaina, parasailing with UFO the morning of July 4 and shave ice at Ululanis (so good we had it 8 times out of the 10 days we were there!). We could not write a review without mentioning Veronitiki, our cleaning attendant. Not only did she keep everything sparkling clean, she even started the dishwasher for us. The best thing about Maui is the people we met and the stories we shared, from service people to tourists. If there was anything we could suggest, it would be to provide 2 lawn/beach chairs to sit on the grounds/beach. We are older and gave up laying on beach towels long ago! We rented two but it was inconvenient picking them up and returning them in Lahaina. Thanks, Michele, for sharing your little piece of heaven in Maui. We appreciated every detail!

Perfect location and condo

Loved this place and would definitely return. The condo was modern, clean, and had the best location in West Maui. The building grounds are also gorgeous. Highly recommend.

Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights and the property had just been redecorated. It is very clean and comfortable and if there is anything that you need the property manager is right on top of it. We discovered by accident that there are shopping carts in the parking garage for use after you have gone to the grocery store and want to get the groceries to your room (great idea). It is central to whatever you choose to do and the walks in the morning could not have been more enjoyable. Michele was very helpful and got back to me immediately. Would definitely stay again. Thank you Michele Mahalo

Owner's Response: So happy you enjoyed our condo and the location. After staying at almost all the properties on Ka’anapali Beach and several other locations on Maui, we chose to purchase our condo at the Whaler Resort. It is truly the best location on Ka’anapali Beach. To keep our condo in top condition for our guests, we replaced all our furniture and lighting last month with brand new contemporary styled designer pieces, upgrading our condo to a Premium status.

Perfect location and great experience

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent place to spend your vacation. The location can't be beat. You are right next to the Whaler Shopping Center with outstanding restaurants. The beach walk is right outside your door and we saw lots of whales from our balcony! It is wonderfully remodeled and looks just like the pictures. It was nice to be able to fix breakfast in the kitchen and then go out to dinner. The owners were super easy to deal with and responded quickly to the booking request. They even provided a 3 page list of highlights, activities, restaurants, and suggestions. Checking in and out was very easy and friendly. This is a great place to stay.
