About the property

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Maximum occupancy 2 adults only)

MAKING YOUR NEXT MAUI STAY A TRULY MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE. Our recently renovated Whaler studio condo is all about views, privacy and comfort. It is located on the 10th floor of Tower 1 with 180 degree unobstructed views of the ocean, Isle Molokai, Black Rock and the North shoreline, and West Maui Mountains. You will find yourself waking up everyday with a postcard view of the legendary Black Rock.

Black Rock is believed by ancient Hawaiians to be the site from which their spirits 'jumped off' or left this world to join their ancestors. The Black Rock area is highly popular for snorkeling and scuba diving as the rock forms a great reef wall attracting turtles and hundreds of beautiful tropical fish. From our Lanai, you can enjoy the legendary torch lighting and cliff diving from Black Rock everynight before sunset. Making your next visit to Kaanapali Beach a truly memorable one.

We offer competitive rates, first class accomodation professionally maintained by our local property manager. We completed a significant interior renovation in 2011 with many upgrades. Our new interior strikes a fine balance between modern luxuries and the Whaler island charms, appointed with many fine local arts. Hope you find our Maui home equally enjoyable as we do. Please enquire with confidence and mahalo for looking. Aloha.

Why The Owner chose Maui

Maui is our favor island in the world and we love spending time on Kaanapali Beach. Our beautiful vacation home at the Whaler offers a perfect getaway for two. The exterior views from our lanai is breath taking and inspiring - with that 180 degree unobstructed views of ocean, beaches and mountains. We chose a higher floor location for the best vista and privacy. The interior of our condo offers you the old Whaler island charms uplifted with modern convenience and upscale feels. It is warmly decorated with many Hawaiian paintings and pictures through out and we will continue to add our personal touch to it on every chance we have. We feel strongly that everyone staying at our condo should enjoy it as much and as the same as we do.

What makes this condo unique

The Whaler is so conveniently located with everything just a few steps away. No shortage of things to do or see, and places to eat or shop. Take the beach walk every morning for a refreshinig walk/exercise that stretches from the Shareton at Black Rock all the way down to the south end of Kaanapali Beach. Try Hula Grill next door with nightly live entertainment (one of the only two authorized Kiawe Grills on the Island), or enjoy Luau at KBH also located next door to the Whaler.

Gorgeous studio!

We loved our studio. It's wonderfully updated. Great views from the 10th floor. Convenient to elevators and free laundry! Bed is comfy and kitchen has everything you need!

No complaints, only good things to say.

We'll be back!

We have been to Maui and stayed at the Whaler many times, but #1018 is by far our favorite unit. The view is phenomenal. We spent our mornings having our coffee on the lanai watching the whales. And at night, slept to the sound of the waves with a wonderful breeze. The mattress was incredible. The unit is well decorated and it has a fully equipped kitchen. We hope to return to Maui in the future and will definitely choose #1018 as our place to stay.

Just returned from a wonderful 10 day stay in the Whaler #1018 in Maui. The condo is immaculate, with beautiful granite countertops in the newly renovated kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen is full size with stainless steel appliances and every cooking utensil you would ever need. The view from the lanai of Black Rock and the mountains is gorgeous! Whaler's Village is close by for dining and shopping but the condo is high enough and on the other side so you do not hear any noise. It was wonderful to have breakfast and dinner on the lanai. We had dinner the last night watching the torches being lit on Black Rock and feeling the ocean breezes. It was difficult to leave. We hope to be back next year! It was like a home away from home.

Profile doesn't do this condo justice!

  • 5 of 5

Though the pictures accurately depict the condo, it was way more amazing than I ever dreamed! In the morning, I loved to let the sun rise while I sipped coffee on the lanai. Just before dusk, I would whale watch (it was that time of year) from the lanai with a piña colada! Plus, you are close enough to the ocean to hear it, so every night I let the waves lull me to sleep. It was heaven! The Whaler is a great place in general; very close to the beach, good pool, and connected to the promenade that allows you to walk to several places to eat/drink. If I am able to return to Maui, THIS PLACE is where I'd stay again!
