Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach is a luxury Resort directly on the white sandy beach of Maui...formerly the 'playground' of Hawaiian Royalty.

BOTH our 'special' GROUND FLOOR location and our other condo above..have become favorites for many Whaler guests over the years! Spacious one bedroom/two full bath condos are located near the ocean front of the building and have a fabulous view of the ocean and Lanai! Great for families & friends to stay close to each other!

The lovely tropical decor reflects island style which you can experience and there is no need for elevators you are right out the door to the beach, barbecues, pool, and all the other wonderful activities that Maui has to offer. This is a location to spoil you.

At The Whaler we also have many great facilities which are for the exclusive use of our guests and owners to enjoy. We are pleased to provide assistance with family events as this condo has hosted many family reunions and gatherings.

Our guests have come to know this special place as their 'home away from home'.

Also next door is the Whaler's Shopping Village, where you can hop a trolley and go exploring to Lahaina town or enjoy the many fantastic shops and fine dining which are offered there. My own personal recommendation will always be 'relax and enjoy'.

For reservations and information, please call Sherry Adams. Aloha!

Why Sherry Adams / Owner chose Maui

Why the Owner Chose The Whaler:

Voted one of the most beautiful beaches in Hawaii!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:

Enjoy the convenience of NOT using a car! Walk next door to Whaler's Village for shopping, dining, and entertainment and take a stroll along the walkway to all the neighboring attractions!! Great for that early morning jog or a lazy day~!

What makes this condo unique

Our GROUND LEVEL CONDO is perfect to just pop out to the beach and pool....without elevators! Especially easy to head out to the barbecue and enjoy a leisurely dinner watching a sunset!

This is the best The Whaler!

Great Views

  • 4 of 5

This was our second time staying at the Aston Whaler Ka'anapali. Each property is individually owed so no 2 are alike. This room has amazing views and is on the bottom floor right by the big bbq area and the swimming pool which is nice.The lanai has amazing views of the garden , beach and is a great place to relax and enjoy coffee or cocktails. The condo has not been fully updated but has had some recent updating. Do not get me wrong the condo is nice. New carpet, couch and nicely decorated.

Felt like home

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 5 nights in this very spacious, comfortable apartment. After coming from a hotel room the space was amazing and it was wonderful for our boys aged 16 and 10yrs to be able to walk straight out the door to the beach / pool. The complimentary guest laundry just down the hallway was great. It was also fantastic to have the place set up as a home, including everything you would find in your home kitchen. Also very useful having 2 full bathrooms. Our highlight was snorkelling with the enormous turtles just a couple of minutes walk away at Black Rock. They were there each day at high tide and they were especially curious to approach our younger son who often found himself face to face with these gentle creatures. Our 16yr old son loved jumping from the rock and really enjoyed the surf outside our room. Restaurants within walking distance were excellent. There was also a food court and nearby store for supplies. Thank you Sherry for a wonderful stay. We would love to stay longer next time.

Perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay in this condo for 10 days in February. We love being on the ground floor and the lanai and adjacent landscaping were so nice for relaxing and watching the ocean activity. This unit is a little aged, but so are we! The bed and the sleep-sofa were very comfortable. The kitchen was well-supplied with everything a vacationing cook might need (there was even a zester for the lime in my mahi-mahi marinade recipe). When we return to Maui, we will definitely want to stay in this unit again!!

Fantastic Maui Condo

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic condo just steps from the the beach, pool, and Whaler's Village. The condo is beautifully furnished and has everything you need to make your vacation relaxing and stress free. The location is perfect and the views are incredible. I have stayed at many condos at the Whaler over the years and Sherry's are my favorites. We have exclusively stayed at her condos for many years now. Sherry is wonderful to work with and very accommodating. We always have such a great time and look forward to coming back as often as we can. I highly recommend this property and Sherry.

Where do I start? Location, Location, Location! being almost right on the beach, falling into the pool by walking just a few yards, beautiful evening views, cannot be much better.
