About the property

Condo, 1 King Bed + Queen Sofa bed, 2 Rollaway beds, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

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 FREE WIRELESS INTERNET, free beach chairs on first come basis, free pool towels, free parking. The front desk charges a daily resort fee per condo of $20, 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 it 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.

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 Maui

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.

Great Condo, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a week stay at the Whaler. This condo was well stocked and the location was perfect. Being able to simply walk out the patio doors and be steps away from the beach, pool, bbq's, tennis courts, and restaurants was amazing! Our entire family rented multiple units throughout the whaler during this trip and it was nice to be able to have everyone over and enjoy dinner together on the patio while the kids ran around on the grass area. The view was also great! Thank you John and Denise!

Love Maui....Owners not so much!

  • 2 of 5

First off, we love Maui and have been returning to the Whaler for many, many years. We like to stay with the same owners as we know them and they are wonderful. We booked this kind of last minute especially considering it is high season (so we didn't know the owners). I can't tell you how many voicemails, emails and texts we received from these owners. Our last payment was not received (snail mail) on the very day payment was due and we received voicemails and texts daily until received. It was ridiculous to say the least. That is just one example...we have many!!!

With that being said, the unit was nice, on the ground level... so especially quiet and private. Bed was comfy. Bathrooms need updating badly. When we called about the fans not working, their manager came promptly and delivered us a fan. Guess the owners didn't want to fix the ceiling fan.

Lots of whales, fun and sunshine!

Best place on Maui

  • 5 of 5

The perfect place to stay while in Maui. The Whaler is much more relaxing than the mega hotels on Kanapali beach. Highly recommend.

Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place to stay. The condo was clean and has everything we needed. Just a few steps to the beach, shopping, restaurants. Lahaina is just a short 10 minute drive. I couldn't have chosen a better place. The owners are amazing to work with. Very accommodating. I will definitely stay in the condo again. I loved it!!!!

Blessings, Angela Grace

Great!

  • 4 of 5

All amenities were there that were needed. Its one of the smaller units but when your on the go it doesn't matter. Having 2 rollouts in the room helped. Had to extend 1 night and owners were very responsive. You cant go wrong with the Whaler; 100% recommend.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your time in our condo and that we were able to accommodate your request for an additional night. We hope you stay with us again when your travels take you back to Maui. Puzzled, though, by your comment about the condo being small as it is a one bedroom, two bathroom unit and is the largest (1100 sq.ft.) of its type at The Whaler and larger than most one bedroom units in other resort complexes. The only bigger ones are the two bedroom units. But you are right. Most of the time our guests spend much of their time enjoying the outdoor activities. Mahalo

Unit #112 at the Whaler never disappoints

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from another 2 week trip to Kaanapali Maui HI. We always stay at the Whaler Condo's right on the beach. We stay in unit #112 any time we can. It's on the ground floor so you just step out onto your patio and then onto the beach. From the patio you can watch the divers dive off black rock. It is a short walk to Whalers Village to shop and all the best restaurants. There is a shuttle that will take you into Lahaina if you don't have a car. The unit is one bedroom, 2 bathroom and it works perfectly for the 5 of us every time. I highly recommend it!! Call Blue Moon Rentals to book it!!
