#1115 was perfect!

We have stayed in Ka'anapali many times over the years and The Whaler is the only place we plan on staying in the future. Its proximity to Black Rock and to Whaler's Village was why we booked this particular condo. Views were awesome and the convenience to the beach walk for our morning walks was great. Unit 1115 was the perfect studio for my husband and I. The views were course to our left and pool and beach to our right, making sunset viewing on the lanai one of our favorite activities. The owners provided beach chairs, umbrella, and snorkel gear and the gift basket when we arrived was very considerate. Every single staff member at The Whaler was friendly and helpful, starting with the parking attendant, to the guys who handed out the beach towels. We just can't say enough about this wonderful condo. Book it if you want a place to chill and relax when on Maui.

The Whaler is relaxing, great location and all you need in Maui!

Please don't book these condos thinking you are staying at a hotel. These are privately owned units located perfectly on Kaanapali Beach. From the moment you enter the lobby you will be greeted with the Aloha Spirit that truly is present in Maui. The staff here is friendly, helpful and ready to help in any way they can. My resent stay was in 559 in tower 2. I booked privately with the owner and was more than impressed with the unit. Absolutely beautiful, clean, comfortable, well appointed large one bedroom with an amazing view from the large lanai. You are a 2 minute walk to Whalers Village and close to everything in West Maui. When it comes to staying in a condo rather than a hotel, The Whaler is your best choice. Most of the hotels in the area are extremely crowded and the rooms are tiny, not to mention the high cost per night. There is only one downside to this property and it is the pool. It is very small for the size of the property and not suited for small children. A word of advice to parents, please keep an eye on your kids because the depth of the pool is misleading the so called 4 foot section is actually over 5 feet. The management here at the Whaler should correct this immediately or provide floats free of charge for families. This is truly the only drawback at The Whaler. The BBQ areas are fantastic, the gym is great, plenty of parking and the views are breathtaking! I will continue to stay here whenever I visit Maui, you will feel like you are in your own home here and will enjoy your vacation even more. Book premium rooms, because they are updated and get an ocean view, or a garden view both offer excellent views of the ocean.

Pleasant stay

We spent three days at the Whaler for our anniversary and found the accommodation to be quite pleasant and relaxing. Easy to find and located right next to Whaler's Village, this property does not suffer from the feeling of overpopulation that many other properties along Kaanapali have fallen prey to. There really is not a bad room on the property, as the intimate design of the two Towers create an experience where every room is located with either an excellent view or excellent proximity to amenities. Our unit, 170, was well appointed with traditional Hawaiian decor, and housekeeping staff was always prompt and thorough. We liked the ground floor location for easy access in and out, the pleasant and spacious Lanai, the complimentary guest laundry and of course, the convenience of having a kitchen so we could do some of our own cooking.The pool area was small, but again clean and well attended. Our only significant disappointment was the fitness center… One of the primary reasons we had booked this property. Located in the basement of one of the towers, it was dimly lit, and felt claustrophobic and dank. Not the way I want to spend my time when in paradise. Would've been nice to see this facility on the ground level where people could appreciate some sunlight and pretty views.Overall, if you are a fan of the Kaanapali region in Maui, this property offers all the amenities of the larger resorts with a much more intimate and peaceful feel. The simplistic and beautiful grounds provide a spacious complement to the navigable property. Views of Lana'i and Molokai will greet you each day.If you've traveled to Maui and not stayed in Kihei or Wailea, you are missing out. Check out of their parts of the island to get a more traditional Hawaiian feel it move away from the big resorts, where in the least, take a day trip in your car.

Gorgeous Views! Beautiful Beach! Wonderful Condo!

I can't say enough about our say in July in the Penthouse Condo 1213. This condo has a murphy bed that pulls down but there is plenty of room for a dining table, sofa, desk, recliner, etc. Everything was clean and was supplied with everything you would ever need to cook, etc. Very clean and the staff was wonderful. The views from the balcony were tremendous. You had a view of the mountains and the ocean and Lanai. There are also free laundry facilities at the end of each hall along with a nice pool, tennis, work-out room, etc. Plenty to do and a great location.

We enjoyed our stay at the Whaler

We recently stayed at the whaler in a one bedroom condo. Very nice property and I loved the fact that we had a full kitchen, made it easier to go out and buy some groceries for the kids for breakfast and lunch. That way we enjoyed a nice dinner out each evening. We will be staying at the Whaler from now on!
