The condo worked well for our needs. The only down side is that restaurant beside the condo starts getting deliveries very early in the morning, so it is a little bit noisy.

We love the Whaler and Kaanapali beach which is only a few feet away. This studio is perfect for two people. It is nicely furnished and has everything you need for a great vacation. We have stayed in this unit twice and will do so again. Hal and Colleen

Really enjoyed our stay. I loved the view and being able to hear the ocean from the patio. It was a great location next to Whalers Village and quick bus ride to Lahaina . The condo was well stocked with dishes and all kinds of cookware . Condo was very clean.Washer and drier just outside in the hall . Our flight didn’t leave until late in the evening and they let us store our luggage and were able to use the pool and an available shower if we needed the whole day even after checking out . There was free coffee in the morning and iced tea and water available in the lobby and at the pool all day . It was a wonderful location so close to the beach . I would definitely recommend and would definitely stay there again.

Condo is very well maintained, comfortable and the location is great. We really enjoyed our stay here and look forward to renting this unit when we return to Maui.

We had a great time and everyone we encountered was awesome and very helpful. Doug made sure everything you would need for your stay was provided and made it feel like a home away from home. The ocean view and the views of the sunrises and sunsets from the lanai were amazing. The condo is in a good location and Doug is extremely easy to work with. Guest services was also very helpful in setting up our snorkel trip. We would definitely rent from Doug again. Thank you for having a wonderful place and for making our stay amazing..

We were very pleased with the unit. The unit was quite spacious along with very nice sized patio. It had everything you could need in the kitchen as well as a good amount of beach accessories - i.e. Chairs/Umbrella's/Boogie board as well mask/snorkel and fins. I really enjoyed the mask/sorkel and fins. There are a few reefs just to the right of the Whalers where you can see a fair number of fish The grounds are immaculately kept up and the Whalers Village (shopping/dining/ABC Store) is a short 2 minute walk along the beach The fitness centre is also very good, with a good combination of Cardio equipment and free weights All in All - very enjoyable time there - I would return if coming back to Lahania.

This condo had everything we needed to have a wonderful time! The condo is immaculate and very well stocked. Thoughtful touches like beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie board, snorkel equipment, cooler, insulated bag, made our beach days great. The kitchen was well stocked too and there was a nice area beachside with gas grills to do outdoor cooking. The Whaler condominium complex is very well maintained. The grounds are perfection. It’s a beautiful beach front property located next to Whaler’s Village mall. The mall has many retail stores and an ABC store, fast food outlets, as well as 3 full service restaurants. On the other side, a short walk will get you to Black Rock known for excellent snorkeling. The owner, Doug, was great to work with. Can’t wait to go back.

Location is conveniently located close to restaurants, etc. Nice that they provided chairs and umbrellas for the beach. Refrigerator, stove, dishes, and utensils was also available. Rate does not include resort fee ($25 plus taxes). Nice TV with Netflix, but other furniture was very old. Shower curtain liner should have been replaced.

We have visited Maui numerous times in the past 40 years. This was our first stay at The Whaler & absolutely loved it. Our condo was awesome, comfortable, and well-stocked with anything we could want. We also loved being within walking distance to Whaler’s Village. Definitely will choose to stay here again💖

This was our first time to Maui and we felt so fortunate to find this condo. It was perfect for my husband and I. Check in was easy and efficient. We never cooked in the kitchen, but it was nice to have the fridge available for your drinks and snacks. The bathroom was clean and updated. The hot water took forever to reach the faucet. We soon learned that we just had to turn it on and give it time, and then it was fine. Plenty of HOT water. The bed was very comfortable. There were options for pillows. Different firmness and feel. The TV and WiFi were easy to figure out and worked great. The owner left great instructions printed in the unit. The patio and view was nice. We could peak around the corner to see the ocean. We made use of the beach chairs, umbrella and cooler that were in the condo. We would definitely stay here again. The owner was responsive to all of our requests and questions. Thanks for sharing your condo with us.

Fantastic communication with owner and immaculate rental and overall property on Kaanapali Beach. We picked up groceries and enjoyed cooking in the well stocked kitchen (and outdoor bbq) while eating on the lanai with two spectacular views - the mountains and the beach! The king sized bed and black out curtains were appreciated. The adjacent restaurant’s boiler room and delivery service do get noisy so be aware of that. I would recommend this unit to my friends and family as this was a fantastic and comfortable rental. Thank you!

Room itself was fine but third floor is not above tree line and view and NOISE from adjacent property was not pleasant. Generator/ air conditioner for large complex enhanced by loading dock/back up truck warning beeping was frequent. Oh yeah, hot water was constant issue. Maintenance response was quick, but hot water was not. Not horrible, not paradise.

We had a lovely time staying at Doug’s condo at the Whaler! The condo was stocked with everything you could possibly need for beach adventures - snorkel gear, chairs, frisbee, umbrellas and the kitchen had all of the essentials. The location was perfect - right near the beach, yet quiet and private. To top it all off, the communication with Doug was excellent - he was helpful, accommodating and flexible. Highly recommend for your next Maui vacation!

I can’t say enough about this property. The bed is so comfortable. The view is incredible. The ease of getting to beach from property is amazing. Doug was super helpful with flight delays, staying later etc (his hospitality brought me to tears). Our trip was amazing. We will be back. This unit literally had everything we needed.

We had an absolutely wonderful time in November staying in this unit at The Whaler. The location could not be more perfect with the beach right out the door, easy driving to other areas of the island and restaurants and shopping all along the walkway. It was just the right size for the two of us. We didn’t do much cooking but utilized the kitchen for breakfast and lunch most days. There isn’t much storage space for food and little counter space so big time cooking would be tough. We would definitely stay here again if we are fortunate enough to make it back to Maui.

The owners truly make this their home away from home. No need for a one bedroom if it's just the two of you. They have absolutely everything you would need for your Maui vacation. From beach chairs to umbrellas and cooler cups to boogie boards.

This was the perfect spot. Everything was perfect. This was the second time we have been to Maui and I exceeded our expectations. I will make sure to look Whaler 365 up the next time we are headed that way. Thanks for everything!

The studio was exactly what we needed and then some- the coolers, beach chairs, etc were absolutely perfect for hanging out. We loved the evenings listening to the music next door and looking out at the ocean. Cannot recommend enough! Only downside was the pool is under construction so you have to go next door (the guests there let us know they were not happy guests from The Whaler were there.) Not a big deal seeing as we pretty much only wanted to be on the beach anyways! We will definitely be coming back!

As always, we loved our time in Hawaii. We have stayed at the whaler several times, and unit 365 is our favorite. Thank you for sharing your Hawaiian home with us. We look forward to our next visit!

My wife and I have been to Maui 5 times in the past 40 years. This by far was our most relaxing ( no children, no grandchildren, etc. 😂). The condo was perfect for us. It was right next door to The Whaler Village. If you don’t want to drive to eat, just go next door to Hula Grill, Leilani’s and Monkey Pod. We went to all three and twice to Leilanis. The only place we drove to eat was The Gazebo, Dukes and MaMas Fish House. The condo is fully equipped and clean. If you are hikers like us you can hike into Lahaina 3 1/2 miles from the condo to downtown and have breakfast at Grindz located in a strip mall with great breakfast food. There are 2 beach chairs, umbrella and beach towels that we used. They were all in excellent condition. Thanks Doug for making our 40th wedding anniversary our best time in Maui. PS - We told our kids about going to MaMas Fish House. Upon our surprise our kids contacted the restaurant and told them that they will pay the bill including gratuity 😁. When we got home my daughter-in-law told us that she had a dream that we spent $1000 🤪

My teenagers and I had a great time at the Whaler over Spring break. My wife and I have stayed at the Whaler before, but it was the first trip to any of the islands for our kids. Our condo had everything we needed and then some. The studio was very comfortable and clean. The beach equipment was a huge bonus for us. We used the chairs, boogie board, snorkeling gear, and towels. The TV looks great, but I'm happy to say we didn't even turn it on! I believe this rental was an amazing value, but that really doesn't do it justice. I can't put a price on the value of our experience and memories. Thanks so much!

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and it was great! We really enjoyed that Doug provided beach accessories and we were able to take advantage of their use, which made it extremely convenient for us. The memory foam mattress definitely made for a good night sleep! Overall, we really enjoyed ourselves and will probably book again in the future. Thanks, L+D

We arrived for a 6 night stay at this studio unit at 5:00 on a Saturday after a long day of travel only to find that the unit HAD NOT BEEN CLEANED from the previous renters. Upon arrival, I called the owner to let him know that the unit hadn't been cleaned. Apparently, he'd accidentally canceled the cleaning. He was very apologetic and offered us a 25% rebate for the inconvenience. At the time, I thought that was ok. Then I started cleaning. After 4 loads of laundry (bedsheets, towels etc), cleaning the toilet, bathroom and dishes, vacuuming, mopping and throwing out the peoples old food, I was disgusted!!!! The experience ruined two days of our trip and my skin crawled every time I entered the unit. We had no idea who stayed here before us. We were cleaning a strangers bedsheets and toilet etc. I was mortified! I consider VRBO studio rentals at the Marriott or the Westin to be 5 star rentals. The Whaler is a 4 star property with a fantastic location and a nice but small pool. But for the granite countertops, this unit is dated and should be rated 3 1/2 stars. Small kitchen is well stocked. Furniture is nice except the pull out couch is hopeless and there are no bedsheets for it. The beach umbrella is broken but two chairs are provided along with other fun beach stuff. I gave this property a low rating because our experience really took away from our enjoyment of the week. Had the place been professionally cleaned, I'd rate it between 3.5 and 4 stars.

Wonderful place. Very clean, has everything you need for your stay. We didn’t cook but if we needed, all was available! Side ocean view from the balcony, but we knew that. Bed is very comfortable. We never stayed in a studio before but after this place we realized that it’s so perfect for 2 people. Location is so great and staying in this studio in the middle of Kā’anapali beach was all we needed. Thank u for letting us be your guests!



January 2016
This is the second time we've stayed at this property. We came back because we loved our first stay. The owners are wonderful to work with, the property management is awesome. The parking is a dream. The room is very clean, the bed is extremely comfortable and the kitchen has everything you need, just like home. The deck is wonderful because you get shade during the hot sun and a beautiful view of the beach and ocean. We watched the catamarans come and go. Our first visit we got to see whales from the deck. We saved alot of money again because of all the beach goodies they have for you to use. You won't need to rent boogie boards, snorkels, umbrellas, beach chairs, etc... We made good use of them and saved alot of money. The beach is a walk out the front door. The pool is great for all ages and they actually heat it to a perfect temperature. We've stayed in the hotels next to this condo before we found this place and they are cold! You don't have to go far for good food if you don't want to cook. Leilani's has something for everyone and make sure you try the coffee mocha moose. We'll be coming back again and again and again!

Amazing accommodations! I've stayed at various Whaler properties many times before, but this unit (and especially the owner's hospitality and professionalism) tops them all. The room is very clean with all the cooking utensils one would need, high quality linens, towels, beach chairs, beach mats and more. The room was exactly as described and we have absolutely zero complaints. As the review is entitled, 'amazing.' We personally recommend this property and cannot wait to return.



May 2015
Im thankful that I was able to find and book this unit and would not hesitate to return. Renting from the owners was not a worry. We emailed back and forth and I had my questions answered and my worry about sending payment eliminated. The unit was exactly how described. They even had an assortment of books that you could pick from to enjoy at the beach. The beach chairs, mats and towels were all high quality and even had a great beach umbrella. These owners obviously outfitted their condo as if they would be staying in it. it would be difficult to get a better location than this one. So close to everything ( shopping/restaurants) yet quiet. We never had a problem with noise. One of the most beautiful beaches is right outside your door, no need to drive anywhere. Pack up the cooler and chairs, grab a book and go enjoy the perfect location for your holiday.

The location is perfectly convenient to enjoy Ka'anapali Beach and is smack dab in the middle of the patch of sand between the Hyatt and Black Rock. Whether you are a beach-goer, snorkeler, shopper, schmoozer, foodie, jogger, or whatever, you are steps away from the action. But that you can be a few steps away is also one of the best parts, when it's time for some rest, you just pop back into the air-conditioned oasis on the shady, third floor for some quiet time. Are there light sleepers in your party? No problem. The building is super quiet and you can hardly hear anything from suites around you. If you want to head out for the rest of Lahaina and West Maui it is really easy to get back out on the roads and explore the rest of the island. It's all the little things too. Nice cutlery, properly sharp knives, spice rack, clean plates, nice towels, fresh linens, laundry soap, snorkel gear, beach cart (YES!), and a pile of other well thought out ideas from people who treat their guests like family. A step above the rest on everything. There's a Dyson vacuum in the closet for crying out loud!! As a fellow Dyson owner I can relate to settling for nothing but the best value. Highly recommended to anyone thinking of Maui. The best part? Thanks for keeping the rates affordable for regular people instead of making Hawaii a playground for the rich and famous. Loved it.

This condo was perfect for our vacation. The description in the listing and pictures are accurate. The place is very clean and decorated nicely. It had a fully stocked kitchen and seasonings in the cupboard, perfect for marinating meat to grill. Every morning we made breakfast and ate on the balcony enjoying the warm weather and ocean view. The condo building had 3 commercial grade BBQ grills in the lawn area so we were able to make some meals to save some money. The location of the condo is right next to The Whalers Village for easy access to shopping and dining and only a 5 minute walk to Black Rock for snorkeling. The condo itself is beach front property so it made going to the beach very convenient. Also viewing the sunsets from the beach each evening was wonderful. The unit itself faces the Whaler Village but the trees next to the unit gives privacy. Another bonus is that unit is close to the elevators, trash and laundry. Doug, the owner was pleasant to deal with and answered all our questions in a timely manner. He (and probably his wife) paid a lot of attention to the details to ensure guests have a pleasant stay at their unit. Here are some of our favorite amenities in the unit: * Huge bottle of Neutrogena Body Wash! We didn't have to ration the soap for a week and quality brand too. * Computer with internet access * Maui Revealed book (we actually forgot ours at home) * Laundry detergent & dish washing soap (didn't have to estimate how much we might need or buy any of that stuff!) * This is by far my fave ... the Cordless Dyson vacuum haha. This made picking up debris and sand daily very easy and fun! Will definitely be staying here again for future Maui trips. Thanks Doug!

We recently got married at Kaanapali Beach Hotel but decided to stay at Doug's condo since his rates are extemely competitive compared to the hotels. Everything was perfect, from setting up our stay to our departure. The beach gear was a plus since there is a fee the Whaler charges if you want to use theirs as well as the kitchen supplies since we love to cook! Unit was extremely clean and we loved the fact that we could literally walk to the beach without any issues. Thank you Doug for everything, we will definitely stay here again! Wendy and Glen

We loved our romantic 25th anniversary trip here. Everything was in order, great location on the 3rd floor..walk or elevator right to best beach in America. Body surfing, snorkeling the reef, nice pool. Whaler's Village mall has it all! Jewelry stores for my wife, 3 great restaurants, wow the sunsets! Good live music at the Hula Grill next door, try the fruit plate! Parking underneath for your rental car and everything is close. Best vacation we ever had.

My husband and I had an amazing anniversary during our week stay at the Whaler and part of it was due to this condo. We loved making breakfast every morning and eating it on the lanai as well as home made dinners. We love to cook and found every necessary utensil in the unit. We also loved having netflix and spent most nights watching some shows. I agree that the unit is nicer in person and the bed was very comfortable. While the shower are could use some updating, that is a mute point. Oh and the big thing....we loved having use of the beach chairs, umbrella, snorkel gear, and boogie boards. We used them almost every day and while others were baking in the sun, we had our shady spot on the beach. This location cannot be beat either. We loved Snorkeling at Black Rock and having a handful of restaurants right by our place not to mention that the ABC store was right next to us....so convenient. In short, you can't go wrong with this unit or owners (who were great to work with). Thank you Doug and Elizabeth!



August 2014
We loved our stay here and will definitely stay here again! Everything about this condo is top notch! User friendly, the bed was very comfortable the computer easy to use thank you very much! I would not change a thing. In the morning we enjoyed our coffee and bagels on the lani with a beautiful view of the ocean. If you do find time to watch tv the tv is very nice!Bathroom had plenty of room for myself and the hubbby to get ready at the same time, as well as plenty of closet space. Thanks so much to Doug and his wife!!! While this was not our first visit to Whalers we loved it once again and would strongly recommend this place! We do hope to return soon!!!!!!

For my retirement vacation we had planned a month in San Diego and, because I had always wanted to visit Maui and we were travelling all the way from the UK, this seemed the perfect opportunity. I spent a lot of time looking at all the various areas/resorts and then, when I had chosen Kaanapali, looking at lots and lots of accommodation - I think I hit gold when I chose this studio. The condo was great - clean and everything we needed or could have wanted was there. The bed was really comfortable and the location ideal. It was great to walk a hundred yards and be in the centre of lively restaurants, shops etc. - but still have the peace and quiet in the condo. We are not sun worshipers but I loved sitting out on the lanai late afternoon, watching the ocean and reading. The grounds of the Whaler are beautifully landscaped and the pool area ideal. Doug was so accommodating and a pleasure to deal with and any questions/emails responded to quickly. Because our flight arrived early (10 a.m.) and there were no guests checking out that day, he arranged for us to access the condo early which was great after another long flight for us. We only stayed 5 days but really wish we'd had at least a week. Whilst there we took a fabulous helicopter tour of the island - complete with champagne, a whale watching trip in a raft and of course drove the 'Road to Hana'. Maui was everything I thought it would be and more - my husband really wasn't looking forward to the Maui trip (thought it was going to be a beach holiday) but absolutely loved it when he got there. Whilst we don't know if we'll ever be able to return to Maui, if we do we would make this our base again.

Note: Vacancy calendar is approximate. Visit the owner/manager's reservation site to verify your dates.
