“Best View in Maui -- Absolutely amazing!!!”

5 of 5 stars

We loved our stay at the Whaler and highly, highly recommend staying at this 11th floor luxury condo!! Located in an excellent location -- literally steps away from the best mall in Maui; directly located on one of the best beaches in Maui; and next door to three of our favorite restaurants on the island!! The view from this condo is absolutely amazing!!! The photos posted on the website truly do not do this rental justice!! We loved this condo and know you will too!!! The Whaler is located right on the beach -- where you can rent chaise lounges, umbrellas, boogie boards, etc., by the hour, the day, or the week! This was a perfect vacation spot and we cannot wait to return!!! Additionally, all of the staff at the Whaler was super helpful and very, very kind!! We booked all of our 'excursions' at the concierge right in the lobby of the Whaler!! Lisa gave us great suggestions and advice regarding the best surfing classes, horseback riding along the coast (Mendes Ranch is the best in Maui !!!), whale watching, and snorkeling!! Excellent condo -- my family and I loved it!!!

“ a view”

5 of 5 stars

This was a repeat visit for our family. We were not disappointed. This unit has all that you want for a vacation. Great views, easy access to beach, restaurants & shopping and a comfortably decorated condo. The few minor issues we had with the unit were fixed pronto. We will go back again.

“Was this trip real or a dream?”

5 of 5 stars

Our stay at the Whalers was absolutely perfect (our second stay) The location cannot be beat. The condo was beautiful, the amenities could not be better. It really was as comfortable as home is every way. The service is above excellent, with a perfect ocean front view. And the cost, compared to other upscale condos or any four/five star hotel is really $100's less per night. We had my 12 yr old grandson with us who had a great time.

While this will probably be my last summer trip (I usually go in Jan/Feb)it will most certainly not be my last Whalers visit.

“Excellent, spacious condo with convenient location”

5 of 5 stars

Fabulous comes to mind with this rental. Lots of space, beachfront, beautifully appointed unit in Whalers village condos. Plenty to do right in the heart of Kaanapali beach.

Whaler on Kaanapali Beach 2BR/2BA Ocean Front Corner
average rating of 5.0 based on 5 reviews
Palo Alto, California

THE perfect location on Kaanapali Beach

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful location on a magical beach!

Kaanapali is a great spot for a relaxing family beach stay, and the Whaler is right at the center of it.

This unit is literally one of the two best at the Whaler in my opinion: The wrap-around lanai with a wrap-around view of the ocean is awesome, with floor-to-ceiling windows. The west & north-facing panorama of ocean & Black Rock is especially gorgeous, from sunrise, to perfect sunset, and then even after dark. The height of the unit (11th floor!) & the North tower location means your views are completely unobstructed and you're so high up you can skip the helicopter tour. The only unit that has potentially a better location is the top floor right above this one.

The unit itself was in great shape, and definitely a worthy home-base for a week of Maui living for our family of four, including two full-sized teens. The rooms are huge, the beds soft, and the updated kitchen is fairly well-stocked with equipment, and the Safeway is just a short drive down into Lahaina! I'd suggest that the bathrooms should be updated next, they are functional but not luxrious.

Outdoors, the Whaler pool is nice but pretty plain, so if you are looking for pool-side bar or water slide you might have to walk up the beach and sneak into another hotel's pool. The beach is literally steps away, snorkeling at Black Rock is a five minute walk up the beach, catamaran excursions & parasailing boats come right up to the beach, everything is here!

I would definitely seek this unit out again the next time we're coming to Kaanapali with the family. For the price and the amenities of home, its was such a better value than two rooms in a hotel.

Stunning view and a great location

  • 5 of 5

This unit is phenomenal. Don't let lack of recent reviews dissuade you. Can't say enough about the lanai. It's massive and we have lost count of the # of whales we have seen. The carpeting in the unit is so soft, it is like walking on velvet. The kitchen is fully equipped with every utensil that you could possibly use. The Whaler property is in great shape and all recent renovations seem to be completed. We had one small maintenance issue, but it was resolved so quickly that it almost seems like the very polite repairman could have been reading our minds. We had no issues with noise from the next door Whaler Village construction in this unit. This unit does have several walls with floor to ceiling mirrors that take some getting used to. We would definitely book this unit again

Breath Taking View

  • 5 of 5

We stayed six nights the end of May 2015. The photos shown on VRBO are wonderful and really do the condo justice, and the location is even more beautiful than can be described. Not sure you could find a better spot to enjoy Black Rock and see Sea Turtles swimming just off the beach (scaring the tourists, haha!) very, very nice. Room was clean, we BBQ'd five of six nights so we could enjoy the evening views from the lanai. Condo kitchen has all you will need, with extra's in the room, beach chairs, binoculars, umbrellas and an ice chest, thanks. Only downside was the Whaler was re-paving the entrance driveway and we has some delays getting in and out, we found out about the planned work three weeks before we traveled but not before we booked. Owner had no control over construction I guess, future guests will enjoy the new drive! Very nice location and stay! We recommend it to all!

Perfect Family Vacation Location

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect in every way. Well appointed, great location, excellent value. This was my third stay at the Whalers and by far the most enjoyable. Notes: was pleased they have been able to clean up the pond.

Grounds are well maintained. BIG PROBLEM, parking is a nightmare, you cannot find a space after 8:00PM,

at least the last time I was there they would provide parking tickets for next door at the Village. This nightly

safari gets old!!
