Wonderful property that will not dissapoint in any

  • 5 of 5

We've traveled to most of the islands and are always a bit leery of owner descriptions. This property is more then we expected. The overall condition was excellent and the view from the living and bedroom patios was fantastic.

The unit is on the 5th floor and as close to the oceanfront as possible. The beach and Whaler Village were just outside the door and offered all the necessary conveniences within a very short walk.

The unit is equipped with everything one would need with washer/dryer (free) just a few steps down the hall. There are beach chairs and coolers available which was a nice touch.

The pool area and grounds are great and offered a great alternative to the ocean when wanted.

We used the conditioning gym and were impressed with the multitude of equipment available.

The staff were all gracious and check-in went smoothly.

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

Thankyou for sharing your beautiful condo with my family for our stay in Maui. Everything was perfect and we felt like we had all that we needed. The apartment is bigger than we imagined and the views were amazing. Not as busy as the other resorts which was what we were after. I highly recommend this apartment and know where I will be booking if we visit Maui again ;) Thanks Laura

Truly the best unit @ The Whaler

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this unit! Being that we are 3 adults in my family and this unit has 3 real beds (not one as a sofa bed) it was the perfect unit for us. The view... gosh I can't stress how simply amazing it is. Several nights I fell asleep out on the lanai just listening to the ocean. The unit had just been renovated and the new kitchen is amazing. The dishwasher is so quiet that I came home and purchased the same one for my house!!! The owner of the unit is wonderful to work with and quickly responds to any email or phone call. I strongly recommend getting up in the morning and feeding the Koi fish. The food goes fast so don't be late. They feed them once each morning and they give you a paper cup full of food and you can walk around and feed them. I simply can't explain how perfect everything is at this unit and property. I also want to add (they may be done by now) the construction at the Whaler shopping mall, you can't hear any of the construction noise from the unit or when you are sitting out on the Lanai. They are remodeling the lower level and walking paths at the shopping center, but all the stores are open. We also got the chance to meet the lady who handles the cleaning of the unit and she was super nice and helpful. Checked in on us and did a mid week cleaning. She also had nothing but wonderful things to say about the owner of the unit. To help save money on food I suggest stopping at Costco by that airport when you arrive or also going to the local Napili grocery store located at Napili Plaza at Napilihau st & Honoapiilani Hwy (30) Also go to Slappy Cakes for breakfast one morning. You cook your own pancakes on a griddle at your table and they have all kinds of toppings to put in them. One last suggestion for savings on food is to go to Whaler Shopping center lower level is a small food court. The restaurant on the far right has all kinds of fresh local fish and shrimp and chicken dishes. It was amazing! I think I had dinner 4 nights there. I always took it to go and walked back to the unit (3-4 min walk) Have a wonderful trip, you won't be disappointed with this unit!!!

Perfect place to stay in Maui!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week with our 2 young children. We had been to Maui several times before but this was our first time at The Whaler. I don't think we'll ever stay anywhere else. This unit was perfect with kids because it is a large unit that allows for some separation with the murphy bed in the living room and the beds in the bedroom. The unit was also very clean and updated and has wonderful ocean views. The Whaler in a perfect location because you can walk to restaurants, shops, and the beach is not only steps away, but has great snorkeling, paddle boarding, etc. and there is a path along the beach for walking/running. The owner was extremely nice and went out of her way to accommodate us, and The Whaler staff were all very nice and helpful. Already planning our next trip!

We have stayed at hotels in Maui for the last 4 years. We switched to whaler this year, and this unit provided us with the most memorable vacation ever. I researched all the available units at Whaler, we decided on this one. I spoke to the owner on the phone, and in less than 30 minutes, set up the reservation, learned about all the procedures, amenities, and services available to us. When we entered the unit it was exactly as described. The view from the Lani is breathtaking, and the living facilities made us feel right at home. Check-in, parking and check-out went smoothly.The Whaler staff, from Connoisseur, to pool attendants were courteous and friendly. We have already booked our 2016 vacation with this owner. Enjoy your vacation at the Whaler.
