About Maui Beachfront Rentals

We live in Nashville Tn. , I am Kelly and have been visiting Maui for ten years . The best memories of my life have been on Maui and I have the photos to prove it! I am an artist and have painted sea turtles and whales every visit. My work is hanging in a local favorite restaurant named Honu.( which means sea turtle ) My friend Ira is an Opthamoligist and owns his own practice here in Nashville called Cornea Consultants. His favorite thing about Maui, besides relaxing. would be the fresh fish, and wonderful local fruits. If you have any questions, or just excited about your trip....please call me. I will be happy to talk!

Maui Beachfront Rentals purchased this condo in 2012

Why Maui Beachfront Rentals chose Maui

We've been frequent visitors to Hawaii and always gravitated to The Whaler Resort as it suited all our needs and our experiences consistantly exceeded our expectations.

What makes this condo unique

PENTHOUSE, OCEANFRONT, PRIME CORNER LOCATION, REMODELED INCLUDING THE FURNISHINGS. It was an easy choice for us. As soon as we open the door the oceanviews just jump right out at you. Looking down from our lanai into the water that is everyday a gorgeous acqua blue and so clear you see right through to the sandbar hard as it is to leave the comfort of our lanai the water just beckons you to go for a swim. The corner location gives us the best all around view and being on top floor just adds that additional element of privacy that we enjoy.

Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at the Whaler within various units for the past 20 years. While we have enjoyed all the units we have stayed in, this one was easily our favorite. As the description notes, the unit is tastefully furnished and has lots of wonderful artwork. The appliances are outstanding. A pleasant surprise was the little touches such as nice mobile fans, a couple small beach chairs and really nice boogie boards. The location of this unit is a bit of a conundrum. This corner location above Whalers Village offers sweeping views of the beach and whatever action is going on at the village, so you hear the outdoor music from the Hula Grill, Leilanies and the periodic events in the village itself. This was a plus for us since everything wraps up early. We also liked that it offers more privacy since you don't have the other tower directly across from you as you have on the courtyard side. The wind is not as strong in this location and the only direct sun on the lanai is in the late afternoon. On paper, this would be my favorite location within the entire complex. Now, the negative is that depending on the wind, the kitchen exhaust for the adjacent Hula Grill can be overpowering on the lanai. If you sit on the lanai, your hair and clothes are going to smell as if you have spent several hours in front of a bar-b-que grill. Also, you can't really open up on those days since the unit will smell for days. It all depends on the wind direction. We made the best of it and feel that the positives outweigh this one negative aspect. Also, Whalers Village is undergoing major renovations for the rest of this year. Lots of construction-related noise for any unit located on the south side of tower 2 during working hours, including weekends. It wasn't a big deal for us since we visit fairly routinely. If this was my first trip to Maui, or the trip of a lifetime, etc., staying on the south side of tower 2 at this time might dampen things a bit....if you let it! Management company was nice to work with and was responsive to a minor maintenance issue we discovered when we checked in. Overall, we loved this unit, and appreciate all the owners have done to make it a welcoming place to stay. Can't wait to return!

Love this place

  • 5 of 5

We are here and I cannot tell you how much we love this place. We have been coming to the islands for 24 years and this condo surpasses every luxury hotel! My husband had to be on a conference call with Boston and NY this morning 3-6:30am Hawaii time and even used your business center so that he wouldn't wake us up. My niece and nephew in-law want to go on a postponed honeymoon and I am going to send them the info for this property.

Thank you,

Tatiana, John, Nina and Victoria Christiansen

Beyond Fabulous Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this penthouse condo for 10 days and had the most amazing vacation. The condo has such a beautiful view of the ocean and the mountains. The balcony is incredible and you can sit out there all day. The condo is extremely spacious, clean and tastefully decorated. We prepared breakfast in the very well-equipped kitchen and ate it on the balcony every morning. The Whaler also has grills that you can use if you don't feel like going to out to dinner. With such a majestic view that it felt as if you were touching the ocean, it was difficult at times to even leave the penthouse. I cannot imagine going to Maui again and staying anywhere else.

Fantastic ocean view

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from Maui. Our vacation was fantastic. The condo had everything we needed. We spent most of our time on the huge Lanai. We saw whales and turtles going past daily. We ate our meals in the nice breeze. The sun was great too. You have both sides with shade or sun. The unit was clean and roomy. The snorkeling was great. Saw turtles at Black Rock and Honolua Bay. We took a wonderful Helicopter ride to Moloki with Sunshine Tours. We will be back to the Whaler. This was our 2nd stay at the Whaler and both times the staff were great. The people who booked our condo at Maui Beachfront Rentals were so nice and helped u's with everything. Thanks for everything

Ira and Kelly, Well I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay on Maui at your condo. We were celebrating our 25th Anniversary and it simply could not have been better. We both just wished we could stay forever. The condo was all you said and more. We felt like we had the best spot on the whole island and wished we could bring everybody up to show it off! :) Perfect! We enjoyed everyday to the fullest and loved returning to the condo at night to relax after dinner. Best view on best beach on best island in the world!- what more could you want!? Plus absolutely beautifully decorated. Pool and beach were great. No less than 4 sunset cruise catamarans were right out in front of the Whaler every night just because its such a beautiful sunset there! Very friendly and accomodating people at the resort everywhere we went. We did the Haleakula crater 1st morning as you suggested and it was incredible. Tried some of the places you suggested for dinner and they were all great. We enjoyed the road to Hana, and drove all around the north side of the island as well. Maui is definitely the kind of place you want to return to so I can see why you bought this condo. If, I mean WHEN, we return to Maui, there will be no question as to where we stay. RIGHT HERE! My wife wants to move there. (really!) Thanks for letting us share your little slice of paradise for 7 wonderful days and nights that we'll cherish for a lifetime!

Car: recommended

The Whaler Resort is located directly in the heart of the famous Kaanapali Beach.Although a car is an added convenience it's not absolutely necessary to have while staying in this central resort area. There is a convenient boardwalk that runs the length of Kaanapali Beach making it easy to access many of the beachside kiosks that offer rentals of beach toy rentals, kayaks,surfboards,boogieboards and more. Walk next door to the largest outdoor shopping mall Whaler's Village which features boutique shopping, art galleries, grocerymart, and a myriad of dining choices. If considering any water excursions most catamaran trips leave directly from our beach!Lahaina Towne rates the #1 tourist attraction on Maui is less than 10 miles south of Kaanapali. A charming waterfront town filled with historical sites, shopping, restaurants, first class art galleries and live entertainment.
