Perfect location! Plenty of room for our family of 5. Loved snorkeling right off of the beach and easy access to whaler’s village shopping and dining.

Overall, we had a nice vacation. We ran into a few hiccups during our stay. The property manager let us know that there was an existing issue with the unit that needed fixing. They were still there when we arrived so we waited outside until they finished. You didn’t get the feeling like the unit was super clean like you normally would, only because they’d had people in there working and rushed to get out. We were also asked when we wanted the condo cleaned mid stay and the day we requested got mixed up so we had to rearrange our plans and the weather was very windy so we decided to head over to Lahaina to kill time. My only complaint regarding the unit was that a portion of the patio was very clean but the side by the bedroom door was pretty dirty. The master bathroom shower got stinky very quickly, I think the liner needs replacing as it was mildewy. We did our best to hang it in such a way so that it could dry completely. This is a windy unit. The outdoor furniture would blow around in the night and the day, clanking into the railing. It can be loud, just an fyi. I appreciated the new slider screen doors, although we would have benefited from there being a screen on the door by the dining area so we could open it for air flow. We like having the doors open, but it can be warm. There is also air conditioning which is lovely at night. We loved having the Murphy bed and pull out sofa option, super convenient. It’s a nice unit, great for a family.

I have stayed at the Aston at Whalers several times now, and always love the place. This room was different from the others I've stayed in, with extra sleeping room (a murphy besides the pullout couch) and a wrap-around patio. It was perfect for our group (4 adult women), and we absolutely enjoyed our stay. Only issue (minor) was some plumbing work that needed to be done, but it definitely didn't hinder anything. Also note to run the hot water a while in the shower before using - takes a bit to heat up. Again, no big deal. Oh, one last bonus - W/D in unit. This is the first unit we've stayed in at Whalers that had a W/D in the unit, and it was soooooo helpful!

What a fantastic time my family and I had at Maui. The condo was just as listed and had gorgeous views of ocean and mountains. Accommodations were great and had plenty of space for family and we enjoyed having the pool, beach and also the games of Yahtzee and Phase 10 to play in the evenings. Kitchen was well equipped and it was great having a washer and dryer, so no dirty laundry when I got home. Also within walking distance to many excellent restaurants and The Whaler Village. Thanks also for the great communication with the owners, they were wonderful to deal with and responded back ever time very quickly when I had a question. Couldn’t have asked for anything more! Will be back!!! Thanks so much for making our family vacation memorable!!

This is an outstanding property. A 2 minute walk to the beach. Location really couldn’t be better. And it is quiet. We heard nothing from anyone on our floor. Lani was huge. We ate several meals out there, overlooking the ocean. Bedroom was comfortable. Wife and daughter slept on the pull out and it was fine. 2 bedrooms would be better, but I knew what I was getting into. I would do it again. The pictures showed an “L” couch, but it was no where to be seen, maybe just changed furniture - we would have liked that. Washer dryer combo was nice to have, kitchen had everything! Shower tubs were a little tall to step into - doable, we just weren’t used to it. These guys have an awesome property set up just how you need it. You will not be disappointed in this base of operations. We would certainly stay again!

We had a wonderful week here! The condo is even better than the photos with lots of space and great views. It’s on the quiet corner of the building just high enough to have a view over neighbouring buildings. The pool gets quite busy so we always swam in the fun ocean waves. We were very sad to leave and hope to return one day soon.

We have been going to Maui for over 20 years. We love staying in Kaanapali! This property at the Whaler is in the best location on the beach. We stayed with our adult children. The condo was clean, well stocked and comfortable. My kids slept in the pullout bed / Murphy bed and said they were comfortable. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again!

I’ve visited Maui over a handful of times and this VRBO was by the far the best experience I’ve had yet. Perfect location for families with young children to walk to the beach, restaurants and shopping without loading up car seats. Gorgeous view of the sunrise every morning! The owners, front desk, and towel kiosk were all prompt answering any questions with genuine kindness. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you for making our memories 100% better!

Easy check in, Valet and check in desk were very friendly and helpful. The unit is lovely, clean, organized w hubby chef stocked w all types of quality knives, utensils, plates, wine glasses etc. 2 full bathrooms are a plus, and separate bedroom w thick walls when one watches TV late and I want to sleep. Comfortable mid century style seating in living room and dining table and chairs. Newer Bed is comfy and very soft sheets and nice pillows. The wrap around balcony w 2 sides is awesome, one side overlooks the beautiful mountains hills and other side the view of ocean and black rock! A must: From balcony…Make sure to watch divers jump from black rock at early evening w a cocktail in hand. Feel the trade-winds from either side of tge balcony keeping unit cool and palm trees swaying in the breeze from balcony. It was nice to have the boogie board and chairs avail for beach since they are expensive to rent! Washer and dryer in unit was great being able to go home w clean laundry! Its smack in the middle of walking path so walk to one end and other end… a secret walking path going past black rock to the quieter North side..and keep walking on that path along north shore hotels to Dukes restaurant. We Uber back after cocktails! Lol Hosts are super fast responsive and helpful. What else can I say.. just book it!

We rented unit 824 for 2 weeks (Sep 24 - Oct 8) and we were thoroughly pleased with the quality and furnishing of the condo. The bedroom is spacious, the closet space and clothes dresser is adequate. The king bed is very comfortable, not too firm and not too soft. Bathroom is generously sized, although I would have preferred a walking-in shower as the tub wall is quite high. The living room is comfy and inviting with a large flat screen smart tv, great couch and chairs. The dinning table is large enough for 6. The kitchen is nicely appointed with enough flatware, plates, bowls, cups and cookware to meet most of your culinary needs. I must say the blender served us well. The lanai is amazing and provides two great views; one of the Maui mountains and the other view of the ocean, Black Rock and Molokai. The table and chairs on the lanai are adequate. We enjoyed our morning coffee and eats almost every day on the lanai and cocktails every evening. We really enjoyed the space quite a bit. We are the type of people who spend the majority of our time actively exploring but while in the abode, we did make ourselves comfortable. This condo is a 5 out of 5 and we will be happy to rent this unit again.

Our family of four enjoyed this unit very much. Our two young adult kids enjoyed having separate beds by using the sofa bed and twin size Murphy bed. The unit was clean and very nicely appointed. The property manager was extremely responsive and easy to work with. Would be happy to stay here again!

The condo was even more beautiful in person! The owners always responded very quickly to any questions I had and they provided everything you could want in a home away from home. They had extra linens for the sofa bed, great washer & dryer in the unit, spectacular views of the ocean and a perfect location. This unit is perfect for families, it was my husband and daughter and I. There are 2 FULL bathrooms! Our daughter had her own bathroom and slept on the super comfy pull out couch in the living room and we had the fabulous bedroom. I want to come back and stay all the time and I would highly recommend anyone to come and stay here. It was perfect! I should also mention its incredibly quiet and the grounds are just beautiful. Thank you again!

Had a wonderful time! The property was so nice, and the pictures don't reflect an updated sofa with a very comfortable new mattress in it. The views from the lanai were amazing- we saw incredible sunsets and rainbows almost every day! Owners were incredibly responsive to any questions I had before our trip. Would highly recommend!

Not only is the location ideal, the property had tons of perks. The kitchen has great gadgets for all your cooking needs and you need only step outside to the beach and Whalers village for shopping. I would give it 6 stars if i could.

Host communication was excellent. The property is in the absolute best location- walking distance to restaurants/shops/beach…. Quick (10 min) drive to Front Street. From the couch or balcony you can see whales breaching and people jumping off of black rock. There is plenty of room- pull out couch, twin Murphy bed, and a queen. 2 bathrooms. Well stocked kitchen. Wrap around balcony. Absolutely wonderful. When we return to Maui, we will definitely try to book this property again. Thank you for hosting us!

This condo is modern and gorgeous with a wrap around patio! It’s in a prime location just steps away from the beach and Whaler Village. The host was wonderful at communicating and I really did appreciate that! A couple minor hiccups during the check in process but the host was accommodating and prompt. Will definitely stay here again!

If you're going to be in Kaanapali you can't beat the location at The Whaler. The unit is a corner unit with a large patio and amazing views of the ocean, mountains and golf course. I'd highly recommend staying here to anyone.

From the moment we arrived at the Whaler, it felt like a home away from home. The unit was beautifully appointed and super clean. The views are spectacular and the wrap around deck cannot be beat! Seeing several rainbows during our stay was the cherry on top of the sundae! We will be back!!

The condo was exactly as described and perfect for our family of four. The wrap around lanai had gorgeous views of both the ocean and mountains. The inside was so spacious and the two bathrooms were just what we needed with two teenage daughters. The proximity to Whalers Village allowed everyone to come and go as they pleased.

Beautiful Condo with all the amenities you would ever want on a vacay. We liked the quiet, some of the condo on the front of the building can be noisy on weekend. This condo is facing the mountains on one side and the beach on the other. Just what we needed We will be staying here again. Simply beautiful
