Lahaina Condo Rental Photos and Description

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 $16 daily resort fee ($17 after January 1, 2017) 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.

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.

8 awesome nights.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 8 wonderful nights at this awesome property. This spacious ground floor unit has every amenity you could want for a relaxing family vacation. The ground floor location on the shady side of the building allows for easy access to parking, the beach, the pool, the BBQ's and although you don't have the height of being in the upper floors, the views out to the ocean and black rock are awesome. We loved never having to wait for an elevator or take stairs to be on the sand in 100 steps or less. Having the extra space of this one bed two bath condo vs. the standard hotel room really gave our family space to spread out and we won't do it any other way from now on. Also, the two bathrooms allowed mom and dad to really have their own space away from the mess and mayhem of our two teenagers! The owners have provided a fully stocked kitchen, great tv's, a comfortable bed, roll away beds, beach chairs….pretty much everything you could need. The unit is clean and well maintained (in a classic hawaii condo sort of way, not the sleek modern sterile look that is popular now), which made it feel like a vacation and we were VERY comfortable here. Communication with the owners was great, and we really felt at home. We loved the double lanai and enjoyed extra long coffee and cocktail times every morning and evening. The Whaler property is 'old school' hawaiian with beautiful but simple grounds, a functional and clean but not fancy pool and spa, nice gym and super friendly staff that really take pride in keeping the place beautiful. If you're looking for erupting volcanos and watersides, this is not the property, but for a relaxing vacation on an amazing stretch of beach with a 3 minute walk to food and shopping you'll love this rental. We can't wait to go back!!

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!!

Paradise. Such a great experience!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Whaler. The condo was amazing and the views from inside were also amazing - we could see the ocean from nearly every angle. It was also nice being on the ground floor. My kids had so much fun on the grassy area outside - it was like having a huge backyard with an absolutely amazing view. It was super convenient because we could get everywhere super fast and it wasn't an ordeal packing up and getting ready for the day. When we go back (hopefully soon) we'll be staying here for sure!!!

Whaler 112 Condo Ka'anapali Beach

  • 5 of 5

Aloha. I stayed at The Whaler in Condo 112 with my family. The condo was beautifully furnished and very comfortable for us. We enjoyed the fact that the condo was located on the ground floor. HUGE PLUS. This provided us easy access to the beach, the pool, the BBQ's and the grassy area directly outside of the condo. It definitely made the condo feel larger, since we had the plush grassy space to stretch out on. You can't do that on the higher floors, since the patio is all you have. It was SO nice to have the view of Black Rock while we ate or had an afternoon drink. We were able to watch the sunset diver from the comfort of our patio. It was really nice to be able to cook and not have to eat out for every meal. Whalers Village is right next door, so it was pretty cool to be able to walk there whenever we felt like it. The owners were really easy to work with and helped give us some pointers on what to do while on the island. They were really familiar with the island and that helped us a lot. We would stay here again and would definitely recommend this condo to our friends and family. Thanks so much. Can't wait to come back!

So cozy and felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

This unit is so wonderful! It is adorably furnished, well stocked and so comfy and cozy. Laundry is available right there too. I love that it is in the shade with the sun just steps away on the lush, soft lawn. Mere steps from the beach and the pool. (Third unit back from beachfront, which was perfect) Beautiful view of the ocean and Black Rock and rainbows galore. My idea of vacation is from unit, to beach, to pool and back. I could not be happier and miss it so much already. We had this unit, and my family also had a unit on the 8th floor, beachfront, that was also lovely. As nice as their unit was, I wouldn't trade it for this one. I think I found my home on Maui... at least until I buy my own! The perfect vacation!
