About the property

1 Bedroom, 2 Bath (Sleeps 5)

~Luxurious remodeled ocean view condo~

We never advertise on Craigslist! We only use VRBO. There are often Craigslist scams about our 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 also now have instant booking feature enabled.

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All furniture has been replaced by new luxurious brands such as Tommy Bahama, Michael Amini, and Pulaski, giving the condo a tropical feel.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

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!

25 Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the pleasure of spending our 25 Anniversary in the beautiful condo. Everything was just right for our liking, slow mornings sitting on the patio with perfect views. Great beach area just step from the condo, plenty of options to eat at just steps away. Just wish we could have stayed longer, hope to make it back soon.

Beautiful and great Service

  • 5 of 5

We normally stay at the Sheraton which is supposed to be a 6 star resort. The Whaler beats it by far. The Whalers grounds are beautifully groomed and the staff was very helpful in friendly. The staff makes sure pool rules and community rules are followed which makes for an extremely pleasant experience. This is where will be staying from now on. We had a great renovated room. Very clean.

Owner's Response: We agree with you, Pennie, that The Whaler does an excellent job of maintaining a high level of beauty, throughout the entire facility. The grounds are beautiful, the staff are friendly, and the views are incredible! We're glad you enjoyed your stay at The Whaler, unit 907. Mahalo

Maui Wowied!

  • 5 of 5

This condo and the property it resides on were lovely and well appointed! It really added to our stay in Maui and I couldn't recommend it enough - the staff at The Whaler was very friendly, the location was perfect (views!) with easy access to the beach and Whaler's Village, and the condo was clean and updated. Although we did not have any issues arise, Laura was responsive when I originally booked and followed through with an email the day after my arrival to ensure everything went smoothly. We appreciated the very clean condo, plenty of fresh towels, premium tv channels, and select kitchen and beach items (chairs, towels from the hotel) which made our stay that much more relaxing. We had a wonderful time in Maui and are looking forward to staying here once more if it is available in the near future! Thanks again!

AMAZING VIEW!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this condo. The view is beautiful looking forward to the ocean and backward to the hills/golf course. Everything is at your fingertips from beach activities, dining, and shopping, and Lahaina is a short drive away. The owners have stocked the condo well with all cooking and sleeping necessities - even beach gear. We just bought groceries and didn't need to get anything else during our week stay. The master bed is very comfortable - felt like home - but the pullout couch wasn't that great. It's okay for a young person but not for an adult. That is the only negative comment I have. The owners were super easy to work with and very quick to respond to inquiries. I highly recommend this condo. We hope to visit again soon.

Owner's Response: Mahalo Wendy for your great review! We're so happy your family had a fun vacation! We are quite surprised however that your son wasn't comfortable on the sleeper couch. Our 18yr old son sleeps on that bed all summer and finds it very comfortable. It is a gel design and it feels like a futon. There are no springs. It is only 2 years old and it is a top design from American Leather that cost over $4,00.00 to buy. We are glad you loved your stay in our condo and that you appreciated it's location and setup. We love it here too!
