Property itself is very nice. We ended up buying our own garbage bags as the one provided for the kitchen were very flimsy and made a mess every time we tried to empty. We do cook pretty much all of our meals. The kitchen is well equipped. However, more storage type containers would have been helpful. Use for leftovers. Period. It was nice having all the beach items, the kids truly enjoyed the boogie boards.

Beautiful condo and grounds. Cannot beat location!! Pool was closed quite a few days while here… bummer. AC in living room and guest bedroom not working to capacity? Master bedroom AC worked great. Fans and open screen doors kept the rest comfortable enough. I highly recommend this place!! Hope to stay again!!

It was a great stay, property was just as described. Can't beat the location. The property manager was responsive and helpful. Our family was very comfortable in this spacious condo. Thank you so much for sharing your home.

There were five adults and two small toddlers in our group that stayed at the condo. The wraparound porch was so amazing for my grandkids to play on. The condo was very spacious and had everything we needed. We also appreciated the outdoor umbrellas and chairs that were left from someone else previously. Very easy to communicate with the owners. We had an amazing vacation staying in Kaanapali. It was so nice not having to buckle kids in their car seats to take them to the beach. Kaanapali beach is our favorite. The condo was perfect and next to everything.

Plenty of room for multiple guests or a family, with all the amenities you could want. Nice pool area and fantastic beach location. Conveniently next to the Whaler Village for restaurants and shopping. We had a fabulous time here!

This property is a really good value in a wonderful location right on the beach. The building is quiet and the lanais was our favorite. The entire condo is spacious and clean. Linens were sparse and the beds/bedding low quality but not a huge issue. Several beach chairs, snorkel gear, and beach toys available. Very kind host. We would absolutely stay again.

The property is clean and gorgeous. The location next to Whalers village for quick breakfasts and fantastic dinners is great. Black Rock with many fish and the mature reoccurring turtle is close by. The wind did send flip flops flying from the balcony as warned.

Great location nice room for 8 adults and very well worth the money, snorkeling at black rock and going to whaler’s village is so convenient. I would highly recommend this property for anyone with a large group. 650.00:a night split between 4 couples is cheaper then any place you could ever find in this location on the island

What a great way to get away to kick off 2023. We took all of our kids and parents and had a great time staying in multiple condos. This unit was very clean, spacious and comfortable and great for the family. The maintenance staff was onsite very quickly when we had an issue with the dishwasher and were very polite and accommodating. Looking forward to coming back next year.

Very spacious. Beds not overly comfortable. Lots of early morning truck noise due to being located right next to Whaler Village. Unusual greeting. We were checking in, the gentleman said we do absolutely nothing for you. We were more than a little surprised to get a 400 plus amenity charge as we were checking out since we had already paid over $1,300 in lodging tax. The amenity charge should have been noted in the listing so we were prepared for it.

I surprised my husband for his 50th birthday with a trip to Maui. I chose this property because of its proximity to his favorite snorkel spot Black rock and walking distance to all wonderful restaurants and shops at Whalers Village. I was nervous after reading some of the reviews but I am so happy to say we loved this property and would definitely rent again! It was a great location and property. Very spacious condo with many amenities. We loved the ice tea served in the lobby as well.

I never left a low review but this time I must. This property ok, the tv’s does not work in either bedroom. This was a big disappointment. Condo kitchen is out dated. The ice maker would not work but finally working two days before we left. Did like the showers, that was a plus. NO WASHER OR DRYER. have to go outside by the elevators to use the washer. Half the pots and pans needs replacing. No pizza pan. For a 4 million dollar condo, would hope it wou;d be better.. condo do book due to cheap prices. You pay for what you get. I own many rental properties myself.

Aloha, We loved our vacation on the island. Location was the absolute BEST for beach, snorkling, shopping, luau, pool, meals, ABC store and just relaxing. The Whalers staff were so kind. We rented umbrellas the first day but figured it was cheaper to purchase and leave for next guests. So 3 brand new umbrellas for you all to enjoy. Make sure to push them way into sand. We also left a new one serving Kuerig. Note, pour one serving of water into resevoir, put pod in, close lid, when white light comes on press the middle button then just be patient and wait. The machine has to heat up the water, and process before brewing so takes a moment. Apartment is spacious. I wont lie, the hideabed mattress is very uncomfortable/unsleepable. My son chose to just sleep on the couch without the hideabed out. A 2 inch mattress topper would help. Owner let us know that new fridge was being installed ( fridge works well but a shelf is missing), along with carpet replacement and some updating of painting and curtains. All in all, yes unit needs some love but the location, the huge lanai to enjoy morning coffee, cool air conditioning ( doors have to be shut for air to work), the pool, beach and all else made this a wonderful stay. A side note: there isnt a cleaning contract with the Whaler so if you need product, or anything just text Jay. They got back to me right away. Also , bring some laundry soap as you'll need to wash your towels during your stay. You can get it too at ABC store which is super close but spendy. Free washer and dryer a few steps down the hall. When vacationing again in Maui I would 100% look at booking again with Jay. Mahalo and a hui hou- until we meet again. Chelle

Great location and price was good for the age of the unit !! Could use bathroom and kitchen upgrades .. sinks not draining and kitchen faucet leaking all over counter with microwave handle missing where disappointing !! But loved the corner unit and property!

This condo is in need of attention. I was concerned before arriving about my interaction with the owner Jay, when I would ask questions about the condo, he seemed short with me, basically if you need something you should just buy it before you get there, instead of just letting me know what he thought might be there. I understand that items breaking and/or disappearing is a possibility. I have stayed in several vrbo properties and have never had this type of interaction or experience before with other owners. The actual condo upon arrival was dirty and there were several boxes of trash in the entrance. The owner was very quick to respond when I let him know how dirty it was and the cleaning company did come back to clean it up but I had already cleaned most of it up myself. The owner also stated he would refund the cleaning fee and we appreciated that. There were 5 of us staying in the condo and there were only 4 towels in the unit. One bathroom had no toilet paper in it and the other had 1. I know this is not a hotel but I expect to be able to arrive and use the bathrooms etc. What a disappointing start to our vacation. The furniture looks very warn down except for the living room couch that looks new but the bed inside the couch was so hard that my son slept on the couch cushions instead of the pull out bed. The refrigerator needs to be replaced immediately. The middle glass shelf is sitting on the bottom of the frig as it doesn't fit or work in the space it was meant for so, you are missing a whole shelf. The top rack in the door, the plastic arm was broken in half and it is unusable. The master bed is so warn that there is deep indentations on each side. If you are planning on renting this condo we found when we got there that on the mountain side of the lanai there were 2 beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, we left several noodles for future guests and there was small ice chest under the entry way cabinets already. Also, just for information the Whaler has beach chairs etc. located by the pool, free of charge for Whaler guests. Overall, for the price of this unit we were was very disappointed.

This condo was even more spacious than the photos show. The wrap around lanai was huge, with plenty of seating. The beds were comfortable, and the unit is very convenient to the beach. Everyone at The Whaler was friendly, and being next door to Whalers Village was great when we needed a run to ABC Stores for supplies. We rented umbrellas weekly, and used the complimentary beach chairs every day. No need for beach towels- The Whaler provides them. The pool was great on windy days. We hope to return for a month in 2024! Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home!!

The property is in a great location. Easy access to the beach, pool,restaurants, and shopping. We were able to snorkel right off our beach, and we even got to swim with a few turtles of the beach. We were able to watch humpback whales too.

We loved our stay at the Whaler! This unit was very spacious, especially the porch. The wrap around porch allows you to see both the ocean and mountains! My family hopes we can go back again soon.

Very large and comfortable with a wrap around Lanai. Partial view of the ocean and great views of the mountains. Easy access to the restaurants and shops at Whalers Village next door. Short walk to Black Rock where there is excellent snorkeling. Gas BBQs right next to the beach, an excellent spot to grill dinner while enjoying a cold beer and watching the spectactular Maui sunsets,

Kaanapali is amazing. The property is amazing. The space that was rented was big. No communication from owner made it difficult but I have been to the property before so that helped fill in some gaps. Condo was not stocked for the week, leftover stuff from the previous week guests, beds were pretty uncomfortable. Go for the location - it is amazing.

This condo was in a great location and perfect for our family of 7. The beach and pool are in walking distance as advertised by the owner.

Our whole family rented 3 different units at The Whaler and this one was "party central". It is so spacious!! Even more room than the pictures suggest. There is a huge sectional in the living room and a dining table that seats 6, and 3 bar chairs. We would gather for breakfasts and evening pina coladas - the unit had a blender. Our group also had a 6 month old baby and, even though it is not listed in the amenities, there is a pack-n-play in the master closet, along with a little tabletop highchair - those really came in handy! You don't need to bring your own...although we did...I wish we would've known the unit had one to save on airline baggage fees. All the closets were super spacious, complete with many, many hangers. Tons of cabinets, dressers and drawers everywhere! There are only showers in each of the bathrooms (if having a bathtub is necessary for you...like needing to bath an infant) :) Also, other renters have mentioned the delivery trucks and the construction in the unit above this unit. The construction is still taking place as of 6/12/21, and could be pretty loud, but thankfully it was not constant, and we were usually at the beach or the pool, or out during the day when the construction was going on. This unit is the end unit that is close to the back alleyway that all the delivery trucks use to make deliveries to The Whaler Village. The road is very narrow and all the trucks must back in...hence, the beeping. But unless you have a baby trying to nap during the day, it is not a problem, and it was never super early in the morning. The unit has an amazing wraparound porch and there is a free washer/dryer by the elevators for anyone to use. The unit is on the 3rd floor and it's super easy to go down the stairs and pop right onto the beach! All in all, we really enjoyed this wonderful condo! Maui is magical and Kaanapali Beach is the nicest beach I have ever visited.

Very spacious 2 bedroom unit is nicely furnished and has a view of the beach from the large wrap-around lanai. Convenient location next to the Whaler's shopping village. We had a great vacation!

You will not be disappointed with the property. The unit itself has plenty of space, and it worked well for my family. The location to the beach is amazing. The staff at the pool were helpful, funny, and connected us to activities to do. There were also a few downsides to the unit and the property. I guess we can blame some of the challenges on COVID-19, but I don't think it should take almost 2 hours to check-in. When 2 members of your family have mobility issues and there is an infant... it was too long. The only other negative thing I will mention is the construction and the delivery trucks. Other reviews talk about it, so be aware the unit is near the backside of Whalers Village. I like that it's close to restaurants and shopping, but during business hours on weekdays you will hear the delivery trucks. I would say the construction going on above the unit was much worse than the trucks. So if you plan to be in the unit during the day at all, I would recommend checking with the property to see if any construction is going on. Overall, thank you for a nice stay during our vacation!

Unit was very clean and perfect for our 9 day stay in Maui. Can’t beat the location, right next to shops, restaurants, and the beach! Easy check in and check out. Can’t wait to stay here again!

Our family of five (kids ages 13-19) stayed her during part of our 10 day stay in Maui. This condo is in a great location on the south end of Kaanapaili. It has a large wrap around lani and the unit itself is very spacious. The displayed photos are an accurate repesentation. We especially loved the beautifully redecorated bathrooms. Whaler's Village, with lots of stores and restaurants, is literally right next door - very convienient. There are also BBQ grill right outside near the beach walk area.) Because of the convienient location right on the beach, our teenagers could come and go as they pleased, Jay, the owner, was quick to respond to any questions. The Whaler was going throgh refurbishing during our stay, and there was scaffolding set up in a few places outside the window, but this was no big deal for us, because we weren't there during the day much and there was no construction at all on the weekends. (And the construction discount made our stay more affordable.) We loved the beach and the excellent snorkeling on the Sheraton side of Black Rock. Try the Hula Pie at Leilani's. Some things to note Washer and dryer are NOT located in the unit, but actually down the hall. Also there is no hair dryer, which would have been nice. Like a timeshare, there are no staples in the kitchen, not even salt & pepper, which made cooking difficult. (We had just come from a condo in Kihei that had basic staples left from previous renters, such as butter, ketchup, mayo, mustard. olive oil, rice, aluminum foil, etc. That saved us lots of money.) We would not hesitate to stay here again!
