Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

Aloha!

Relax in this fully remodeled, luxurious condo and enjoy the spectacular views of Black Rock at Kaanapali Beach while feeling the tropical breezes from the lanai. Located high on the north side of tower two, for those that know the Whaler, Unit 964 in Tower II is in the preferred location!

This completely renovated studio features a fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and custom cherry cabinets. Should you desire to cook while in paradise, this full size kitchen has a built in micro wave, an ultra quiet dishwasher and cookbooks from top Aloha chefs. A BBQ Grill tool set is available for successful grilling at one of the two Gas Barbeque areas and complete barware equipment is available for making mai tais to enjoy while watching the sunset from the lanai. If you would rather dine out, Whalers Village with its choices of excellent restaurants and shops is just steps away. No need to drive anywhere!

The custom furnishings and dramatic quality finishes throughout the living area were designed to relax you into the aloha state of mind! With beautiful travertine flooring in the entry and kitchen leading into plush carpet in the living area, you'll find a comfortable inviting atmosphere. When you aren't watching the whales or playing in the surf right outside your door, the condo's entertainment includes a large flat screen TV with DVD, IPod/Ipad docking station and free wifi. The king size bed features a Serta Perfect Sleeper Mattress with luxurious sheets. The sheets have a 500 thread count and are 100% pima cotton - perfect for tropical conditions. The Studio is air conditioned with automatic climate control.

The bathroom features granite countertops, a dramatic onyx sink, beautiful travertine shower with bench and a crystalline travertine rock floor. There are ample thick hydrocotton Turkish bath towels for your use. A built in makeup mirror, hair dryer and walk in closet with built in custom drawers are additional touches to make your stay so much more relaxing. Also provided for your convenience and enjoyment of a leisurely day at the beach is a large Tommy Bahama beach umbrella, and two Tommy Bahama back pack beach chairs with attached coolers.

Go for a swim in the beachfront swimming pool, take a dip in the Jacuzzi, work out in the fitness center or play a round of golf at one of the two championship golf courses next door. The possibilities for fun and relaxation are practically endless! And, of course The Whaler is just minutes away from Lahaina with it's exciting mix of restaurants, shops and entertainment.

About Jan Anderson

After visiting Maui for the first time over 15 years ago, I found that it was the perfect escape to rainy Pacific Northwest winters. My reading material of choice while laying on the beach quickly became Maui Real Estate magazines as I dreamt of one day owning my own place in paradise. After many years of dreaming and thinking about where the ideal location was, I found it at my home at The Whaler. I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I do. I believe that the sweeping views and the fabulous location combine to make it a perfect place to relax and experience Aloha (the breath of life)!

Clean, comfortable, fully stocked, beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, this was without a doubt the best vacation we have ever experienced. Jan was very quick with every message response from the first inquiry to the final refund of our security deposit.

This is a great unit at the Whaler situated on the 9th floor with views of both the sunset on the white sand beach of Kaanapali and the sunrise of the West Maui Mountains. Everything in this unit was exactly as described in the pictures and exceeded our expectations in every way! The unit was extremely clean when we arrived.

The kitchen is up to date with granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, utensils, plates, wine glasses, pots, pans, food storage containers, toaster, knives, spices, and more! All you would need to cook every meal just like at home.

The king size bed is extremely comfortable and is situated to be able to wake up each morning to the sunrise over the Mountains. The couch and chair are also very comfortable and provide views of the beach. The balcony has enough room with a lounge chair, chairs and table over looking the gardens below and is excellent for early morning or late night views of the beach.

The bathroom is up to date with granite countertop and stand up shower stall. There is a large walk in closet with lots of drawers and clothes hangers. There is even a cooler, beach chairs, and umbrella.

We enjoyed cooking several evening dinners down by the BBQ's over looking the beach! In our opinion, it was better than paying for an expensive dinner at one of the nearby restaurants.

Even though this unit is situated next to the elevator, it is very well insulated. We never heard any sounds from other guests or the rooms above or adjacent to us.

This unit has plenty of room for 2 people and felt like we were at home, except with fabulous views and ocean sounds!

The Whaler is an excellent place to stay if you are looking for a condo on the beach. This particular unit is one of the best at the Whaler resort!

The property was clean, manicured and staffed appropriately.

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth visit to the Whaler in the past fifteen years. The owners/Strata continue to upgrade the towers and property, which is very impressive to us. The towers and grounds look great. Jan's condo was as described, great views towards the ocean and towards the mountains. The condo was nicely decorated inside and made our stay care free. We highly recommend this unit and of course the Whaler. Enough cannot be said about the staff at the Whaler. That includes ground crews who maintain ponds and gardens, front desk staff, main gate staff, room personnel, cleaners, etc. Scott and Linda Connors Victoria BC Canada.

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Whaler several times over the years and this was the nicest studio unit we have stayed in. Would book this one again if we go again and it is available.

A Slice of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Wow... i don't know where to begin with this spectacular piece of paradise.

First, Jan was very easy to work with and answered all of our questions regarding her home. Pictures of her property were perfect and exactly as it really was. The room, view, all the extras that she has for you to utilize were great touches. a few examples, the sand chairs, the cooler, the body boards, the grilling tools, we used them all and thank you! Great furniture on the lanai too, we loved having our own homemade breakfast every morning on the lanai, looking at the beautiful ocean and people watching, and enjoying your piece of paradise! The room itself was gorgeous, right down to the linens. I could not have asked for anything more. Very clean and the location was even better, close to the elevators and the laundry room(which we used quite often). The view...oh the view, as i sit here now and think back, I would never stay in any other room in Maui! Loved all the resort amenities too, we utilized the beach front grills, pool, hot tub, and we waked for miles on the beach. This was our second trip to Maui and we will be back for a third and we will stay at the Whaler and we will stay in Jan's home! Thank you Jan and VRBO for a wonderful booking experience.

Everything as promised and more

  • 5 of 5

This oversized studio met all expectations. Exactly as represented in all photos. Tremendous view of the courtyard beach and black rock as well as the mountains and Kaanapali golf course to the east. Patio was large enough for the two of us to eat on. DVD player and flat screen TV with all satellite channels. Updated furnishings, modern kitchen and bath. Also provided terrific Tommy Bahama beach chairs and umbrella. Jan was great to work with and even delivered a beautiful Orchid to the room on arrival. One aspect that we didn't think of when booking; her unit faces north which means no direct sunlight baking the unit all day. Nice and cool in the home & the patio cool and in the shade to sit out and relax on after a long day in the sun on the beach or golf course. Would definitely stay in her home again on future visits.

Spectacular Condo - As Advertised!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Jan's condo in mid December 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo looks great in the listing and it's exactly that. It's well appointed, comfortable and quiet with great views of the ocean, Blackrock & inland towards the golf course. The location of the Whaler is perfect with shopping and restaurants right next door and right on a beautiful Kaanapali Beach. The property is well kept and the Whaler staff is friendly, courteous and aiming to please. On our next trip to Maui I hope Jan's condo is available as we look forward to staying there again. Mahalo!
