About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Our beautiful island home is located on the 10th floor of this world class resort located directly on the famous Kaanapali Beach! Our condo offers an exceptional view of Kaanapali Beach with it's wide stretch of soft white sand all the way to the most well known snorkel and scuba diving site on Maui called Black Rock. The views feature not only the beach, but miles and miles of aqua blue ocean water and spectacular views of our neighbor islands. As you can see from the photos there is no compromise on our views no matter which room you're in. We've added mirrored walls in both the living room and master bedroom so you get a sense of a panoramic oceanview within the condo itself! You'll wake up in the morning and right from your bed you'll begin your day witnessing the most magnificent ocean surf, tropical palms swaying in a gentle breeze and the spectacular blue water that just beckons you to jump in! If your blessed with a brief tropical shower then expect a beautiful rainbow to appear just to add another touch of magic to your day!

Start your morning with a leisurely breakfast on your lanai, and watch as the surfers and parasailers master the waves.Or,if you happen to be one of the lucky ones here visiting during whale season, just sit back and marvel at the the magnificent show of the humpback whales as they glide gracefully through the water.It's only a short stroll next door to the Whalers Village the largest outdoor shopping center on Maui. You'll find a myriad of fine restaurants or casual family dining, convenience stores, boutique shopping, first class art galleries,live entertainment and so much more. And if you're inclined to take advantage of the many water adventures most start directly from Kaanapali Beach ~ now how convenient is that!

When it's time to return to your condo you'll appreciate the care we took in selecting comfortable furnishings to make you feel right at home. We've outfitted our condo with amenities that are practical and in keeping with hawaiian tradition. We do have a queen sleep sofa in our living, however we've also provided two full twin size framed fold up beds. They are both stored in our utility closet complete with linens. They are mobile and can be set up in the living room in lieu of using the sleeper sofa.

We also have an outstanding management staff that are seasoned professionals who are happy to assist you with any of your island needs. They can arrange for grocery delivery in advance of your arrival, car rentals, island activities, or if you have any special needs? Perhaps an extra stroller or crib ~ they can provide it all so feel free to just ask.

We've enjoyed a long loyal clientele, which we hope you'll become a part of. We hope you visit soon and often, and be sure to let our management team on island know that you are a return guest. We have a special appreciation just for you!

Thank you for considering our home for your next island vacation!

With warmest aloha, Jon and Janet Cheetham

Fantastic View!

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice condo with an amazing view of the ocean and Black Rock. The kitchen is well equipped and clean. You had another great view of Black Rock from the bedroom in a very comfortable bed. Maui Beachfront Rentals is a very nice company to rent from. They are very conscientious and even called when they heard from housekeeping that a piece of furniture wasn't left in the correct spot from the last renter and offered to send someone to move it to it's correct spot. The lanai had a nice tall table and chairs to enable you to see over the railing and watch for whales. It was also nice to see the catamarans coming and going. There were beach chairs in the closet which was wonderful. There was also a lot of comfortable living room furniture. We would definitely recommend this condo.

Perfect location in paradise

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful stay! Room 1056 is in a perfect location with amazing views and close to whalers village and black rock! The space was perfect, with some beach supplies (although the boogie board was broken so we didn't use it). We did leave some sand toys for future guests. The kids loved the pool/hot tub and feeding the fish in the AM. The staff was great and other the a few small things the stay was perfect. The bed is super uncomfortable but the corner of the couch with out the sofa bed was great and the portable beds were comfortable. I just wanted to stay with my husband in the bed but couldn't do it. The front door key circle was broken where u swipe your card and the bathrooms door and oven fan had issues. These are really small inconvienances and the location and ease more then made up for it. We would definitely recommend it and stay in 1056 again when we visit. We hope it's available next year!!!!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at The Whaler and the first time in unit #1056. We were not disappointed. We chose Whaler for the location, close to shopping, restaurants, great beach and walking access to nearby hotels, but also for the friendly staff. The unit was well equipped with kitchen necessities, beach chairs and cleaning supplies and thank goodness for the washer/dryer. But by far the best part is the view from the master bedroom! Waking up to the view of Black Rock and the ocean... amazing!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family trip to Maui and staying at the Whaler1056 ensured the perfect week. The central location of 1056 offers beautiful views of Ka'anapali beach and Black Rock and is in close proximity of shops and restaurants. My daughters used the provided boogie boards, diving masks, and beach chairs daily. Both girls learned to surf by taking lessons minutes out the front door. Based on our experience, we are making Ka'anapali an annual trip and , if possible, staying at 1056.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed on Ka'anapali before, I knew what to expect. This was my first time at The Whaler and all I can say about 1056 is WOW. The pictures don't do it justice. You can lay in bed and have that fantastic view. The location to everything was perfect. Walk right down stairs to load on the catamarans was perfect. Whalers Village is right there and I found the short cut to the ABC store too. Everything you would need. We took advantage of the chairs and boogie board and I grilled two nights as well. We loved the washer and dryer in the condo. I could live there... Bet your hat the next trip I will look to book this exact condo.
