We have completely remodeled our studio apartment. It is now *the* showcase studio at The Whaler. (Read the glowing reviews from our guests below.) The work was done by Scott Williamson, known as the #1 remodel contractor on Ka'anapali Beach. Some of our pictures were taken by Scott's photographer.
If you know the Whaler, then you know that #1015 is in a great location. It's on the 10th floor on the south side of the north tower, so you're overlooking the courtyard with a terrific view of the ocean and beach. From our private 10th-floor lanai you've got terrific views of the ocean including all of the island of Lanai. Look in the other direction and you've got a great view of the mountains. (There are 12 floors in the building.)
If you don't know the Whaler, you're in for a treat. The Whaler is in the best location on Ka'anapali Beach. Walk out of the building and you're just a few steps away from the beach. (Closer than any other property on Ka'anapali Beach.) Directly next to the property is Whaler's Village with dozens of shops and three excellent beachside restaurants. And because you're staying at the Whaler, you don't have to drive home after dinner.
All linens are provided. Check-out cleaning is included free of charge. Additional cleaning during your stay can be arranged for a nominal fee.

Our mainland home is in beautiful Marin County, just north of San Francisco, but we try to spend as much time on Maui as we can. Our other apartment (#707 a 1BR/2BA) is our home-away-from-home and we often use #1015 for special guests. We visit 3-4 times every year and we spend most of our time making sure everything in both of our condos is just right for our family and guests.

We first stayed at the Whaler on our 15th wedding anniversary. That was 27 years ago in 1986. To us, the Whaler is all about the location. We love that we can walk out of the building and immediately be on the beach. We love that we can sit on the lanai any time between January and April and watch whales. And we love that we can walk home from half a dozen great informal restaurants.
The beach is literally 30 paces from the building. We walk on the beach and swim in the ocean every morning. We love walking down to Black Rock, coming back to the middle of the beach, getting free fresh towels, taking a swim, drying off lying on the sand, then heading back to the condo. Every day should begin this way! And every evening should include a Mai Tai made by Johnny at Leilani's, just down the path at Whalers Village.
Enjoyed staying at this clean, quiet property with a beautiful view from the balcony of both the ocean and foothills. All the staff onsite were great and the owners were a pleasure to work with. The beach was perfect and good restaurants and shopping were within easy walking distance. We recommend!
Great place to stay, every thing we needed. Kitchen well equipped, plenty of towels and a nice surprise to find a cooler available for our use. This was our first time staying on the south side of the tower, so you do get all of the afternoon sun on the lanai, so most days it was too hot to sit out there in the heat of the day. But, it was still nice having the doors open and feeling the warmth. If I could complain about anything, the blow dryer only bows cold air, but I don't use one much anyway. Highly recommend this condo. Oh and The Whaler it's self is always beautifully landscaped and maintained as well as great people working here. Was happy to see a lot of the same people still working here from last year.
Thanks Janine and Mark
We had a wonderful stay here in September and couldn't have asked for anything more. It's incredibly well kept and in an ideal location. The owners were extremely helpful in answering any questions and promptly refunded our damage deposit after our stay. We'll definitely be back again next year!
The last time I stayed at The Whaler was in 1980. The property has remained beautiful and they are updating everything. The condo we stayed in was beautiful. The kitchen well stocked with just about everything you need. The only thing I would add would be plastic "sippee" cups with lids for sodas to take with you to the pool or beach for keeping sand out of your drink. We used a cabana every day at the beach. The folks at the beach activities shack were very helpful and the price of the cabana very reasonable. The beach area is beautiful as well and is made for stand up paddle boarding, kayaking etc. The snorkeling there was okay, although I would suggest walking or driving just next door to the public beach area for a few more reefs to see fish and turtles. We did see a couple of turtles off our beach as well as a few larger reef fish, just not as many next door. The pool area is a little small, although we didn't really mind as we prefer to be out on the beach. One thing we would suggest is if you go out in the evening get back before 8 if you want to park underneath the building, out of the sun. It is a quick walk to the Whalers village where you can shop or eat at either The Hula Grill or Leilani's, both have good food and fresh fish every day. If you feel like driving, head out to Leoda's in the Olawalu area. We ate there three times. Great food & home made pies! Well worth the drive. We would definitely stay here again and suggest it to our friends too!
We had an excellent experience at this property. We stayed 10 nights. The place was very well kept, clean and the view was amazing. Would highly recommend this place to anyone. The owners we responsive and ver accommodating to anything we needed.
Slightly smaller than the pictures show but comfortable for 2 people. Excellent remodel gives this studio a very modern look and its location was right outside the elevator lobby which made coming and going very convenient. We enjoyed our stay here and would look for its availability on future trips.
