About the property

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

You will love this luxury ground floor ocean view condo facing world famous Black Rock at The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach. 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 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, 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, 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. In either case, the Rental Agreement must be completed and returned within 72 hours of booking.

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.

Perfect Maui vacation condo

  • 5 of 5

Best spot on Maui. The unit is on the ground floor and and so accessible to everything. It has an amazing view, close to the ocean, close to the pool, close to the BBQ, and Whaler Village. The unit was very well stocked with everything you need for your stay. We've been to Maui many times and this is the spot we would go back to. Loved it. Thank you!!!!!!!

This place was so wonderful for our family. The kids loved playing on the grass outside while we'd prepare meals. The grounds are so beautiful and well maintained. We made some amazing memories here. Thank you!

We have stayed at this facility numerous times because we love the location and it is not a large of

  • 4 of 5

Of a property as some of the really big chain hotels. The unit 112 was great size and nice ground level location however it is very dated. We don’t mind the dated too bad however the beds were the worst we have stayed in. From the king size to the hide a bed. It was nice there were two rollaways but those were just as bad. One was broken and the other one we laid the mattress on the floor. When we have stayed there over the years there are usually chairs or a cooler or an umbrella but unfortunately this unit didn’t have any of those amenities

Owner's Response: We are disappointed you did not find the accommodations to your liking. We make efforts to provide a comfortable environment and amenities to our guests. The condo is furnished in "Tommy Bahama" style decor, which we understand is not the modern type that some guests like. We urge future guests to review the pictures on the site to see for themselves if it meets their design needs. With the four adults in your group, it may have been more suitable to rent a 2 bedroom condo so everyone had a bed rather than using the pull out sofa-bed and rollaway beds, which are never as comfortable as a real bed. We have heard nothing from our cleaning team about a broken rollaway. We do plan to replace the bed later this year as part of our normal renovation process. Everyone's wants and needs are different - some like firm; others like soft. We just completed a renovation of both bathrooms with more to come. As you may guess, rental condos require continual maintenance and updating, which we perform regularly. Regarding the chairs and umbrellas and cooler, we have decided against keeping these in the condo as they are just clutter and are usually filled with sand that gets everywhere. The resort provides free chairs and umbrellas at the pool stand, so there is no reason to have to haul these items back and forth to the beach. We are very competitively priced and are usually significantly below the cost of similar condos. As the saying goes, "You can't please all of the people all of the time", but we give it our very best efforts.
