Aston at the Whaler on Kaanapali Beach
- What's Included
Aston At The Whaler On Kaanapali Beach. Terrible experience! Before you book a room read the following. Rude staff and the management couldn't make a decision if their life depended on it. This place is all about money and doesn't keep their promises no matter if it's in writing or not. Very outdated place with no sandy beach. Parking is very expensive and can add up over a weeks stay. Whaler Village should be avoided like the plague.
I was blown away by the size of this apartment, the full kitchen was a blessing and our stay was topped off by the most comfortable bed I have slept in, not to mention the pillows. We were only a short walk away from the Hula Grill (very popular during happy hour) and Whaler's Village with a wide variety of shops. The highlight of our stay would have been catching the $2 bus from Whalers Village to Front Street, Lahaina where you will find Restaurants, Bars and a variety of top brand shops.
I can’t imagine a more perfect place to stay on Kaanapali Beach than The Aston at The Whaler. This condo complex deserves to rated #1 on trip advisor! We were vacationing in Maui to celebrate 40 years of marriage. Check in was completed quickly and we were surprised by fresh pineapple, chocolate covered macadamia nuts and Champagne when we got to our room. We stayed in a Studio Ocean View Premium Suite 1264. Very clean and nicely furnished with an outstanding view of Kaanapali beach and the courtyard from our spacious Lanai. The Lanai had a small table, two chairs and a lounge chair with space between for walking around comfortably. Kitchen had newer appliances. There was a small dining table for four, a couch and two chairs which we never used because if we were there we were outside enjoying our Lanai. The condo had a Murphy bed which was the only thing I probably would have changed. Although we slept fine, a comfy regular bed with better support would have been preferred. Fell asleep first night to the wonderful lapping of the ocean, does not get much better than that. Housekeeping did a wonderful job of cleaning every day and restocking our towels, coffee and complimentary shampoo, lotions and soaps. Grounds although not extravagant were very pretty and enjoyable. Pool and hot tub were good sized and chairs were monitored so if they were left vacant for an hour they became available which was really nice! Always seating available if wanted. There was complimentary ice tea and water by the pool and in the lobby during the day. Beach was wide and had comfortable lounge chairs right in the sand which we sat and enjoyed beautiful sunsets from. The location cannot be beat. Although there are no “onsite” restaurants you are steps away from the Hula Grill and Leilani's on the Beach both of which have great food and live entertainment. You are also a short walk from Whaler’s Village which had an ABC store perfect for picking up those little odds and ends you find you need without driving anywhere.The underground parking was a bonus. There were only 2 nights out of seven that we did not find parking there. They even provided little shopping carts outside of the automatically opening underground entry doors which immediately led to elevators so you could easily transport things up to your condo if you needed. We were allowed to stay in our condo for an extra hour till noon on the last day which was a blessing since our flight did not leave till 5:00 pm. The front desk staff was very accommodating and held our luggage after we were checked out and even made sure my chocolate covered macadamia nuts were in a fridge so they would not melt on me without me asking, very thoughtful. I would definitely not hesitate to recommend the Whaler to anyone looking for a great place to stay while visiting Maui.
The pictures do not do this place justice. The grounds are beautiful. Upon arrival we were offered an upgrade from an oceanview to an oceanfront condo. It was breathtaking. We couldn't have had a nicer stay. The Whaler has rules about noise and smoking that you have to sign which gave us peace of mind about the care they provide for their guests. The unit was beautifully furnished and it provided everything you need. The beach front was large and well maintained and the pool was beautiful. We would stay there again.
The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach in Maui, is one of our favorite places to stay. We have been there over 10 times and always want to return. While this is considered a hotel, it really is a 4 star condo development with a full kitchen, dining room, 2 baths in the one bedroom units , and fantastic ocean view from almost every room on the upper levels.You generally need to book for a week ( 5 to 7 days or more), but if like being near the water, the beach and lots of beach activities , this is the place! The units are generally owned by individuals who rent them out at times they are not using them.W like the 11th floor best.
