This ocean view condo (with beautiful view of Black Rock and Maui Mountains) has been completely renovated. The kitchen, living area and bathroom have been upgraded with the finest materials. Kitchen has been renovated into a U-shape design with new granite counter tops, sub-zero refrigerator, dishwasher and limestone floors.

Located on the seventh floor, the studio has picture postcard views of the ocean, island of Molokai, Ka'anapali beach, Black Rock, The Whaler's courtyard and West Maui Mountains. From the unit's lanai you can watch the waves tumble onto Ka'anapali Beach, or enjoy a beautiful Maui sunset!

The kitchen's granite counter tops, wood cabinets, new appliances and limestone floors make preparing your favorite food or tropical drinks a pleasure. The carpet is new, and there is a King Size Murphy Bed (New King size Serta Perfect Sleeper.)

The studio sleeps two adults and if you stay for 12 days or longer, maid service is provided once a week!

Gail Reichel purchased this condo in 1985

Why Gail Reichel chose Maui

Years ago we fell in love with Maui and had the opportunity to buy our condo that we continue to use as our own home away from home.

I am happy to say many of our guests consider 762 their "home away from home" It doesn't get any better than that!

What makes this condo unique

Whalers Village is right next door to various activities, restaurants, shopping, which is a pleasure. The beach path, (which is well marked to keep you from taking a wrong turn) is great for a walk or run. To the North you can go several miles, stop & have an outdoor breakfast or lunch at Dukes, a T. S. Restaurant. Black Rock has excellent snorkeling. Ka'anapali Beach is right out your front door.

Lovely Studio - Great Location and View

  • 5 of 5

I'd like to start by talking about Gail, because she is fantastic to deal with from beginning to end. She is very organized and makes the whole process easy, and I say this as a first-time user of VRBO. Having told her that it was our anniversary trip, she also went out of her way to make it special, including a lovely basket of fruit, chocolates, and other snacks that awaited us with a nice card upon our arrival. In short, you are getting better and more personal attention than you would at more expensive hotels located literally next door.

The unit itself was perfect, and it has a fantastic view of the famous Black Rock at Kaanapali Beach. I can't tell you how happy it will make you to wake up in the morning, open the blackout curtains, and gaze out at this view as you look forward to another great day on Maui. During the season, whale activity is easily visible from the balcony and the beach below.

If you know Maui, you know Kaanapali and how beautiful the location it is, and how convenient to great shopping, history, and boating activities at Lahaina. During our visit, we used the condo as our home base for longer excursions to the road to Hana (sadly closed halfway through due to a rockslide on the day we chose) and Haleakala. These are easily done as day trips from Kaanapali, and you'll be back in time for a great dinner in West Maui - cook at home in the well-appointed kitchen or visit some of the tasty area restaurants.

The beach is easily accessible from the unit, and there are amenities including towel service and beach chairs. Snorkeling equipment and paddleboards are available for rental right in front of the Whaler. Snorkeling is some of the best on the island around Black Rock. It's fun to watch the cliff divers, too.

I would recommend this unit to any single person or group of 2 for a wonderful Kaanapali experience and a perfect launching pad for excursions to other parts of the island. My wife and I hope to return again one day.

P.S. For those who may be leery of a Murphy bed - don't be. It was more comfortable than our bed at home and I believe bigger than queen size. At least it felt like it.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for a wonderful review & compliments. It was my pleasure to welcome you to Maui & 762. Maui is a very special piece of Paradise & one of the things I enjoy most is welcoming my guests to our beautiful Island, and making their trip special in my own way. I am so happy to know you enjoyed returning "home" to 762 after a days outing. Even though you couldn't complete your Hana day, .. you certainly got in many fun adventures. Maui has so much to do, one can't possibly do it all in one visit .. this is why it is so addicting .. all the wonderful, exciting adventures, outings, even taking walks along the beach, Black Rock snorkeling, frequently with the turtles that will swim along the waters edge with you; that is all their for you to discover. I am certain you will have so many fond memories of your 1st anniversary trip to Maui. May you have many more years in best of health, success, blessings. I look forward to welcoming your return to Maui & 762 when the "Maui bug bites" Aloha Gail

Fantastic property-incredible ocean and mountain views

  • 5 of 5

The unit is beautiful-very well appointed and beautifully decorated. The Whaler is located on a beautiful Mike's Long Beach

And there must be more than 20-25 restaurants easily within walking distance. It's also located next to a major shopping area (Whalers Village) with a number of quality shops and food outlets. This is just a perfect setting with fantastic snorkeling right in front of the condominium. It couldn't be a better combination.

Beautiful Condo Beautiful View!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Gail's studio condo for 6 days in July. One of the main reason we chose this condo was because of the murphy bed. It was very comfortable and gave us tons us room for socializing when the bed was up. The room felt so spacious - not like a cramped hotel room. The view was amazing... we spent every morning and evening just sitting on the balcony watching the waves and listening to the ocean. This condo is on the courtyard side and you have an amazing view of the island of Lanai and Black Rock. The courtyard side is quiet and you avoid the hot afternoon sun ( currently there is construction on the whaler's village side of the complex). The kitchen is remodeled and was well stocked with everything you could need. We had breakfast in the room each day and also grilled out a couple of nights. The grills were clean and high quality. This is our second time staying at The Whaler and we love the location. It has a great mix of shopping and restaurants nearby as well as ocean activities. We took a snorkel excursion and a sunset cruise that both left from the beach by the condos. We also snorkeled at Black Rock which is a short walk from the condo and saw huge sea turtles! We loved the fish tacos at Leilani's and the tasting menu at Hulu Grill( 3 courses for $29). Gail was very easy to work with and resolved any issues promptly. We loved the room and the hospitality that Gail offered. We will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Aloha Susan & Dave Thank you very much for a perfect review - & taking the time to submit one. I am so happy you had such a wonderful time in Paradise; in the unit, enjoying the lanai. and the adventures you took. Maui is so addicting, and each time you return their are more adventures to take, plus the thrill of snorkeling at Black Rock & "bumping" into those beautiful turtles! Everybody lOVES the fish tacos at Leilani's and the Hula Grill. We are so fortunate to have those & other restaurants so close along with Whalers Village (which will be completed by the first of 2017) My guests are VERY important to me, & I make certain you are comfortable, relaxed, have all the necessities of everyday living right their for your needs. I do agree, having a Murphy bed opens up the whole living area. I wouldn't have it any other way. You were fabulous guests and I will have my "Gail's welcome mat" for you anytime you are ready for another trip to our beautiful Island, Maui. Many blessings until we "meet" again Gail

Comfortable updated unit with a beautiful ocean view

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for a week in unit #762 and it was a great place to stay. The unit is updated and clean. The Murphy bed was very comfortable and it was nice to be able to fold it up out of the way every morning. I actually slept better there than I do at home. The mirrored wall in the living room allows an awesome view of Black Rock and the ocean all the way from the kitchen. The location is great and the property is well-maintained. We barbecued three nights there by the pool and met other guests. The property was not overcrowded and it was a peaceful setting. Unit #762 was a perfect location within the building because we were able to enjoy a beautiful sunset view without getting too much sun on the lanai. We look forward to returning and I recommend this unit to others who appreciate a comfortable updated condo with a beautiful ocean view.

Owner's Response: Mike & Maggie .. many mahalos for your wonderful comments .. I love you slept better than at home .. that's what Maui Holidays are for -- no stress, the sounds of waves at night, peaceful, relaxing, meeting new, interesting people who enjoy barbecue & socializing ..maybe going on an adventure - or snorkeling at Black Rock's all good ! This time of year is a great time to go. I look forward to welcoming you back to Maui & 762 when you plan another trip...when you return the lobby will be very beautiful, easier check in -completely different AND .same wonderful, friendly, attentive staff. The Whaler has gone through, over the past several years, a complete renovation .. all for the good. Maui is Paradise and the Whaler is a fabulous property to "get away from it all !" Aloha, Gail

We have stayed in various units, at The Whaler, over the past 27 years. We found this "gem of a studio unit" two years ago, and now consider it the only unit that we want to stay in!

Unit 762 is beautifully updated, functionally well-designed (very spacious for a studio!) and generously equipped with all that one more. The sub zero refrigerator/freezer gives ample space (less time going to/from the store, more time on the beach). The king size Murphy Bed is super comfortable, yet allows for a spacious living area during the day when it is up (a bonus compared to many other studio units where the bed takes up most of the living space). The large bathroom shower has easy access (unlike some units that still have the old tubs which may be difficult to get into). Views from the lanai are spectacular. The view of Black Rock is to die for, along with beautiful sunsets over the ocean.

The owner, Gail, is a joy to work with. She is professional, yet personal. Her pride in the unit, and her attention to detail is obvious! Thank you, Gail, for sharing Unit 762 with us. We can hardly wait to return!

Owner's Response: To my "couldn't ask for better guests" Thank you so much for your wonderful words .. It just makes my day to know how much you enjoy the unit .. although the beautiful Island of Maui isn"t hard to take either. :-} I will always welcome you to Maui & 762 anytime you are ready to go back to Paradise. Stay well ... you're such a trouper Diane, with your leg injury - dealing with your crutches .. and still loving everything .. how fabulous is that! My warmest aloha to you both, .. Gail

Amazing condo with perfect view

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we've stayed at the Whaler and our favorite condo thus far! It was very clean and comfortable with all of the amenities you need to make you feel likes it's home away from home. The view is amazing while enjoying it from the lanai!! I highly recommend this unit and hope to stay there again upon our next visit!
