~Luxurious remodeled ocean view condo~

Please use our instant quote feature and our calendar on this VRBO/Homeaway site to check for prices and availability. We keep everything up-to-date.

We are very excited to announce the 2014 complete remodel of our one bedroom two bath condo, featuring an all new Kitchen and two new baths plus new tile flooring, new carpeting, and granite counters throughout. The remodeled baths have new cabinets, sinks, toilets, granite counters, tile, and lighting. The master bath has a walk-in shower for easy access and an innovative shower head which lets you choose between a waterfall or rainfall effect. There is also a hand held shower and a bench for those who wish to sit while showering. Our washer and dryer are now in the master hallway next to a beautiful new vanity. The guest bath has a tub and a hand held shower for easy bathing of children. The kitchen has been completely gutted with all new flooring, granite counters, cabinets, lighting, a wider floor plan, a pantry, and new appliances, including a large French door refrigerator and a beverage center. Three bar stools have been added for extra dining options.

All furniture has been replaced by new luxurious brands such as Tommy Bahama, Michael Amini, and Pulaski, giving the condo a tropical feel. We have also replaced the couch with a new sleeper couch by American Leather, which has a patent on its unique sleeper design. The bed is made with foam rubber and gel instead of coils to give it the highest level of comfort. Also in the unit is a roll-way bed, allowing 5 people to easily stay together.

Besides the wonderful interior, the condo’s lanai offers the most outstanding views you will find in all of Maui. The condo truly feels oceanfront even though it’s one back. The south -facing direction can’t be beat, with views of the island of Lanai, Kaanapali Beach, and the courtyard’s beautiful pool and Koi pond. The condo’s high level on the 9th floor allows for the lanai to always have cool breezes. In the winter months, whales can be seen from the lanai, especially in February when they are abundant. Every night the sliders can be open so you can sleep to the sound of the ocean.

The Whaler, a premiere condominium resort, is in the heart of the famous Ka’anapali Beach. Ka’anapali Beach is recognized worldwide as one of the top ten beaches. The spectacular natural setting, along with the many amenities of this resort hotel, make it an outstanding paradise vacation for people of all ages. The Whaler has recently completed more than $30 million worth of property renovations and enhancements over the last 3 plus years. The Whaler on Ka’anapali Beach featured amenities include state of the art fitness center, business center, tennis courts, beach side pool with hydra-spa, an on-site concierge, a beach kiosk with towel service, beach-side gas grills, onsite Aveda spa, air conditioning, and underground parking. The superior location of the property keeps owners and guests in the heart of some of the best shopping, dining, and ocean activities on Maui. Within walking distance are two world class golf courses, Whaler's Village Shopping Center with 65 shops and restaurants, and a whaling museum. A paved promenade allows easy strolling along Ka’anapali beach. A free Trolley also allows you to ride between all the properties on Ka’anapali Beach.

Ka’anapali Beach has much to offer. In addition to long walks on the beach, numerous water activities are available directly along Ka’anapali Beach including catamaran trips (which pick up directly in front of The Whaler), swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, parasailing, whale watching, boating, sailing, surfing, windsurfing, Jet-skiing, dinner cruises, golfing, and luaus. It’s also a short stroll along the beach to Black Rock where you can watch the cliff divers in the evening or take the whole family for a swim with the turtles and tropical fish during the day. We love staying here and we think you will too.

About Laura

We live in the beautiful central coast of California. We have four children (this is a picture of my oldest daughter and me in Hana), with one son remaining at home. We are retired and enjoy traveling when our youngest son is not in school.

Laura purchased this condo in 2013

Why Laura chose Maui

We have been visiting Hawaii with our family ever since they were young. We like all the islands but Maui is our favorite. We bought The Whaler because we think Kaanapali Beach is the best beach in west Maui and we wanted a place to spend our summers.

What makes this condo unique

After looking at many condos, we settled on The Whaler because the units are so close to the ocean. You can sleep with your door open and hear the ocean all night. It's also great to be right next door to Whaler's Village so you can get food or dine out. My son loves the beach here as it's one of the few places on west Maui that has as sandy ocean bottom. It's great for boogie boarding.

Amazing Stay in Unit 907 at The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were very impressed with Unit 907. Very clean and well maintained, beautifully decorated with every attention to detail. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans etc. for cooking should you want to. We loved sitting on the lanai enjoying the ocean view. We have stayed at several units at The Whaler over the years and this is the nicest by far. Owners could not have been nicer and were very easy to work with. Can't wait to return.

First class condo with an outstanding ocean view.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Whaler on four previous occasions because we love the location in Kaanapali. It is located right on the beach and it is a very short walk to some excellent bars and restaurants. It also has some outstanding snorkeling spots just minutes away. We have always had good luck obtaining our rooms thru VRBO, but this condo was hands down the nicest unit yet! The interior design is absolutely perfect and it is beautifully furnished. The kitchen had granite counter tops and "top of the line" appliances. It was stalked with everything you could want for your stay. I personally enjoyed having a blender, it was fantastic! We also loved having the in-unit washer and dryer and found it to be extremely convenient. The unit had all of the extra's for the beach including "Tommy Bahama" beach chairs and umbrella, 2 "boogie boards, and an ice chest. The ninth story view gave us a great view of the ocean and the beautiful Maui sunsets.

I would highly recommend this unit to anyone and we definitely plan on coming back.

We have been coming to Kaanapali Beach since 1994 and find that 907 offers a luxury experience. The view is wonderful; the kitchen had everything one needs, plus the bed was extremely comfortable.. The recent unit update shows a lot of attention to detail and generates a warm feeling. When we return, 907 will be our first choice. Mike and Jeanne- October 7, 2016.

We were so impressed with how well kept the condo was! Stunning.

  • 5 of 5

Property itself was very clean, pretty, well maintained, but very noisy with the current construction. The condo was beautiful, fully remodeled, and we will definitely consider staying there again. The owners take a lot of pride in it, and rightfully so! Once the property construction is done, it will be much improved.

Beautiful ocean AND mountain views from a comfortable, elegant condo!

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I stayed in Laura's condo located in The Whaler for about a week. The price was slightly reduced because of construction happening on the property (we were told it should be done sometime around Dec 2016). Luckily this unit was decently far away from the loudest construction.

We enjoyed the expansive "partial" ocean view. The view did not seem partial at all, rather we were able to see not only the beach to the right but also the stunning mountains to the left. Yes the second condo tower is a large part of the view as well but it did not negatively impact our experience. The area itself is very touristy, but the environment is still very enjoyable. The views, restaurants, pools and shops nearby are all well worth a visit.

The Whaler pool is pretty standard. The ocean just outside the condo was calm and beautifully turquoise. I was able to wave to my mom floating in the ocean all the way from the 9th floor deck of the condo and she waved back. The lounge furniture was a cozy add, and I laid out for hours reading books and taking in the view. It provided some much needed solitude in a busy tourist area that I was grateful for.

The kitchen in the condo was a godsend for times we got sick of sitting in restaurants. Laura was kind enough to share some local market suggestions within an hour of my request! My mom and I made a few yummy meals in the well equipped kitchen.

The pull out bed was comfortable enough, the closets were filled with various helpful items like bandaids, extra blankets and even boogie boards. Staying in a place like this makes a trip so much more enjoyable than a barren hotel room. I would recommend Laura's condo to anyone looking to stay in Maui!

Be sure to have a tropical drink at Hula Grill (2 min walk to the left of the condo), drive (10 mins) into Lahaina to eat at the amazing "Shark Pit Maui" restaurant and utilize the free ping pong table at the hotel closest to Black Rock (a quick 5 minute walk to the right down the beach the condo is located on)!

Thanks Laura+Fam!

Owner's Response: Sarah, Thank you so much for your wonderful detailed review! We sincerely appreciate you writing about your experiences with us and in our condo! The quietness of this condo location really can make for a relaxing day on the lanai as you said. My husband and I always spend time relaxing out there every year we are there. We hope you will be able to visit us again. Mahalo!

Wonderfully updated condo, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

The Whaler is a great facility in an ideal location and #907 has to be one of the best! My wife and I looked at many offerings in Ka'anapali and chose #907 as the condo we wanted to stay in while we visited and got married on Maui. The pictures are accurate, our stay was great, and the staff were friendly and helpful. I loved eating breakfast on the lanai while watching the day start; beautiful, scenic, and very relaxing. With the Whaler's Village next door and Lahaina just a few minutes away, everything you want or need is conveniently nearby. My wife and I loved our whole experience and would definitely stay in #907 again. Highly recommended!
