Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 2 Bath (Sleeps 5)

~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All furniture has been replaced by new luxurious brands such as Tommy Bahama, Michael Amini, and Pulaski, giving the condo a tropical feel.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.

Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently had the opportunity to rent your lovely unit at the Whaler in celebration of our 30th anniversary! We had an incredible time and enjoyed every minute of our stay! The views from the lanai are stunning and we watched whales and sunsets daily! The unit is beautifully decorated and we had everything we needed! Thank you, Laura and Jim, for sharing your home with us, it was truly special! We hope to have the opportunity to stay with you again!

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.
