Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 King Bed + Queen Sofa bed, 2 Rollaway beds, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-

You will love this luxury ocean view condo and it will become your 'home away from home when you come to Maui. You will want to return again and again. We promise.

This luxury, ground-floor condominium (Unit 112) is fully upgraded with two big-screen TVs (60'" Samsung LCD in the living room and 40' Samsung LCD in the bedroom), new carpet, granite kitchen countertops, new appliances, air-conditioning plus "Tommy Bahama" style ceiling fans in the living room and bedroom, and the most comfortable pillow-top bed in the world. If you love to float in the clouds and sleep like an angel, it doesn't get any better. Additional queen sofa sleeper and two rollaways available for additional guests upon advance request.

In this luxury condo you have many amenities not found in all condos in this resort including WIRELESS INTERNET, beach chairs on first come basis, pool towels, parking. The front desk charges a daily resort fee per condo of $20 (subject to periodic increases), which they collect upon check-in.

You are just steps to the best white-sand beach on Maui with swimming, snorkeling, parasailing, jet-skiing, surfing, and many other ocean activities at your fingertips. Up and down the beachwalk you will find dining, shopping, beachfront bars and five-star hotels. There is no better spot on Maui for a memorable family vacation or a romantic get-away for two.

Make yourself a a Mai-Tai, throw something on the barbecue then retreat to your private lanai complete with ocean views, seating for ten and dining for eight to watch the spectular Maui sunsets.

It's a great place to kick back, take it easy and sleep 'til you're done. Then get up, take a leisurely walk down the best beach on Maui, have your morning coffee and plan another day in paradise.

You can spend your afternoons lounging on the white sandy beach, by the pool or on your own private ocean view lanai, hitting the bars or restaurants for a bite and great Hawaiian entertainment, enjoying beach activities or simply taking a well-deserved nap.

In the evening, it is just a short walk to fine restaurants, shopping or night-life. Or just take a moonlight stroll on the water's edge.

This is a one time charge of $100 for guests more than 4 for the rollaway bed and extra towels that is payable directly to the owner separate from the amount paid to VRBO for the booking.

Remember, each condo is individually owned and some are just the bare-bones minimum. You won't regret your choice to stay in this luxurious condo. You'll be back. We guarantee it! Call us and we'll make it happen for you.

You may choose to either complete our Credit Card Authorization form as your security deposit (will not be charged if there is no damage) or you may purchase Damage Insurance through VRBO.

About Denise Russell

We have owned our own "slice of paradise" for over 30 years now. We and our kids spent summers here. Now they are adults and can't get away as long as they could when they were carefree children, but they still never miss our annual family trip. We hope you enjoy your time in our wonderful condo and make it your home away from home when you visit the islands.

Denise Russell purchased this condo in 1986

Why Denise Russell chose Lahaina

We love the wonderful weather, great beaches, water sports, oceanfront dining and an occasional Mai Tai at one of the many local beachside watering holes. Kaanapali is consistently rated one of the 'Top Ten Beaches in the World'. You owe it to yourself to come and find out why. We're sure you'll agree.

What makes this condo unique

Every morning starts with a workout in the gym downstairs, a half hour in the sauna, then walk down the beach to the Beachwalk Cafe for coffee. We make our way back home for a quick breakfast, then hit the beach for a relaxing morning on the sand to read that book we didn't get to all year or just take in the beautiful ocean views. After lunch, we spend some time at the newly renovated pool to visit with friends, old and new.

There is great dining, shopping and many other ctivities - snorkeling, parasailing, surfing, jet skiing, ziplining, hiking, horseback riding and just about any other activity you may desire.

In the evenings, we enjoy our dinner on the lanai watching the magnificent sunsets while dining on the food just off the barbeque or from our complete kitchen, outfitted with new appliances and granite countertops. Some nights, we take advantage of the many restaurants within walking distance of our condo or take a drive to one the many fine restaurants up or down the coast.

It just doesn't get any better than this and that is why we come back year after year. We hope you do, too.

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

This place is a treasure! The condo itself is lovely and so well equipped with everything you might need in a home away from home. We loved being on the ground floor sitting outside looking at the magnificent view and the lovely lawn. The condo complex itself is beautiful and feels like a luxury resort. We are steps away from both the beach and the pool area. Restaurants and shops are a short walk away. We highly recommend this place.

Terrific place. Met our needs perfectly.

  • 5 of 5

Ground floor condo with an awesome view of Black Rock. Very convenient access to the BBQ and beach. We ate dinner every night at fire pit table on the BBQ patio. We watched the ceremonial lighting of the Black Rock torches every night, ending in a climatic dive into the ocean. Ocean sunsets and Black Rock views along with steak. It doesn't get better than that.

Excellent Location on a Great Property

  • 5 of 5

We booked a week at this unit for ourselves and our two adult children. This place is plenty large enough for four adults, having two full baths is important. The two ceiling fans help keep this air conditioned place comfortable. This particular unit, 112 is a little dated and a couple of the cabinets are a little worse for wear, I'd also replace the mattress in the master, but all-in-all this it is an excellent value. The unit is kept clean and the grounds are immaculate. The staff at the Whaler is great and the barbecues are kept spotless, cleaned every morning! We loved making breakfast and eating on the Lanai every morning. You can see Black Rock from there and we would just walk down there for great snorkeling. The pool is also kept up nicely and we would alternate between there and the beach. The location is close enough to Lahaina that a quick shopping trip is no problem. One week is just not long enough!

Perfect comfort and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo for many reasons. First off even though typically a ground floor isn't a prime location, this one was for us. Our family loved the fact that both the kids and us could come and go with ease right out the back sliding door. Swapping between snorkel gear and boogie boards, getting snacks and lunch and then swapping to the pool and hot tub while grilling dinner, having the condo right there instead of having to use stairs or elevators was awesome! Even being able to walk out to the grass right off the lanai to put on sunscreen was so much nicer than putting it on while on the sandy beach.

The condo was clean and had everything we needed for the kitchen and grilling. The beds were comfortable for a great nights sleep and never once did we hear a single neighbors noise while there. We would definitely rent this particular one again for future vacations.

Owner's Response: We are so very happy that you enjoyed your time in our condo. We strive to make it comfortable and well-equipped. We agree with you that the ground floor is a wonderful spot to be. Will used to own an upper floor unit and when this one became available for sale we originally declined, thinking that the ground floor would not be desirable. We stayed in there for one night and were sold. Our children, who are now adults, really enjoyed the grassy yard area just outside the living room or bedroom door, where they could run and play. You are right. It is so convenient to just walk out the living room door and have everything you need just steps away, yet still be very quiet and private. No waiting for elevators, no long walks to the pool or barbecue or beach . It is our favorite place to stay when we are in Maui. Our maid told us you were a great guest who took good care or our condo.. We would love to have you as our guest again when your travels bring you back to paradise Mahalo for your kind words. John & Denise
