This was the best accommodation we have ever had in Maui & we have been vacationing in Maui for 30 years. The condo was beautiful, extremely clean & spacious, the owners have catered & anticipated for every need you require , ie, beach chairs, coolers, fully equipped kitchen, they really have gone above & beyond on what is supplied. Also the communication with the owners & the property manager was an absolute pleasure. We did not want to leave, we will definitely re-book with them & have no hesitation, in recommending our friends to stay in this condo. This experience has made our vacation so memorable & special. Thank you so much Norm & Mary

This property was more than we expected. It was clean, convenient with a kitchenette and resort amenities on property, and just a few steps from a beautiful beach where we snorkeled with sea turtles! It was our first trip to Maui and we’d definitely stay again.

This is a fantastic unit in Whaler Village. The location is extremely convenient, and the unit itself is really comfortable and well maintained. The lanai is fabulous and perfect for enjoying breakfast or an afternoon drink. The bed was comfortable. We very much enjoyed our stay here and would definitely come back.

The apartment is located in an excellent location in Kaanapali beach besides Whalers Village. The apartment was excellent and pool facilities as well. The hosts were very responsive. We hope to visit again.

It was a beautiful place right by the beach. The staff was excellent when we checked in, very friendly, and helpful with recommendations. It is located right by a shopping center so it is a quick walk to restaurants. I truly did enjoy my stay here and if I ever go back to Maui, I would stay here again.

My wife and I were extremely impressed with our latest condo rental at the Whaler at Kaanapali Beach in Maui. The unit is very nicely decorated, has all the bells and whistles of condos costing three times as much. We had a question or two for the condo owners, and they responded kindly, within minutes. The nicest people you would ever know. Our overall experience was fantastic. The unit was awesome, and Kaanapali beach, and the Whaler, are beautiful in all ways. We can't wait to stay here again.

We had a wonderful stay. The condo is in the perfect location for beach and mountain views, long walks up and down the beach or boardwalk, great restaurants, and the Whaler has great facilities as well (gardens, ponds, tennis, barbecues, and a small beach front pool) . The condo is nicely appointed too... we love the place every time we visit.
