Boasting an epic 7th floor oceanfront location in the heart of Kaanapali Beach, suite 701 delivers jaw-dropping ocean views stretching from Lanai to Molokai to Black Rock and beyond!

The expansive 940+ sq ft interior of the suite features one master bedroom and two full bathrooms. Fade into a rejuvenating slumber with help from the ocean’s gentle rhythm in the king-sized master bed. If you have additional guests, they can sleep comfortably in the additional convertible sofa sleeper. Both bathrooms have been completely renovated for a lavish bath experience.

Prepare meals or refreshments in the full kitchen. An open floor plan provides the perfect setting to relax and reconnect.

Step outside onto the 400+ sq ft wrap-around balcony and enjoy your own outdoor dining area as you experience year-round Maui sunsets, or simply relax in the outdoor lounge chairs as you take in the sights of Kaanapali Beach and Black Rock below. In addition, this corner location offers enchanting views of the verdant West Maui mountains looming majestically to the east.

Catch your favorite show on the flat-panel HDTVs in the suite. Free high speed wi-fi is also included with your stay. Pack lighter with easy access to the in-suite washer/dryer.

The north tower (tower 1) and the oceanfront “01” column offers a distinct advantage to its one-bedroom oceanfront counterpart in the south tower (tower 2) in that the “01” column enjoys the serenity of being secluded within the tranquil interior of the Whaler with lovely views of the lush courtyard.

Resort amenities include a beachfront swimming pool with a towel kiosk offering fresh towels, hot tub, fitness center, beachfront gas barbecue grills, free wireless internet, and a concierge to help with booking activities.

Nestled steps away from the soft sands right in the heart of Kaanapali Beach, the Whaler boasts one of Maui’s best resort locations. This world-famous beach offers an abundance of shopping, dining, and activities right out your doorstep. Luaus, dinner cruises, snorkel trips, parasailing (summer only), whale watching (winter only), surf lessons, and more are only a short walk away.

For added convenience, our exclusive Maui Resort Rentals courtesy shuttle offers complimentary transportation between The Whaler and a number of West Maui locations.

Combining a spacious interior, stunning 7th floor oceanfront views, and a prime resort location in the heart of one of America’s best beaches, suite 701 will provide your party with an unforgettable Maui vacation.

With warmth & aloha we invite you to 'InJoy' The Whaler 701!

***Whaler Tower 1 will undergo spalling repairs and painting throughout Fall 2024. Whaler 701 is currently scheduled to be affected from 8/19/24 to 9/27/24. The project will consist of refinishing the exterior building surfaces before painting the exterior walls, which may cause noise during working hours and will impact the state of the lanais (balconies).***

Never had a condo before, always stayed in resorts. This condo beat our expectations. Loved the view for whale watching. Pool was fun, easy to get out to beach and the property was well kept. Will stay there again!

We love the Whaler and Maui! We came with our families who’d stayed in other units there as well. It was a perfect vacation time for us all. The views are absolutely amazing here in 701!! We’d love to come back!

The pictures don’t do this place justice - even better than advertised. Perfect location - can walk to shops and restaurants in Whaler’s Village and short drive to Lahaina for even more. Really good snorkeling with turtles in the afternoon just down the beach at Black Rock. You can rent snorkel gear at the resort (and lots of other things), but some local shops (The Snorkel Store) have better rates for the week. There were a few chairs and coolers in the room for use as needed, too. We took advantage of the water, tea, and coffee down at the front desk, too. The condo is spacious - way bigger than most hotel and resort rooms - it was nice having a separate bedroom, large closets, two full bathrooms, full kitchen and huge living room to spread out. We spent a ton of time on the balcony. The front part of the balcony gets shade in the morning and the side part gets shade in the afternoon/evening. Great sunsets looking out at two other islands (Lanai and Molokai). Fun to watch the people and boats and we even saw a sea turtle from 7 floors up! Even when you’re inside, you can see the ocean from all angles. Love the grounds, too, with the Koi ponds, fountains, waterfalls, and flowers! We were sick the last three days (maybe too much snorkeling), but the condo made even our last low key days a delight with the views and convenience. We had tons of adventures (Haleakala, Iao Valley, Sailboat/Snorkeling, Road to Hana), but I probably could’ve been happy just hanging at the condo!

We enjoyed a month in this lovely home with great whale watching and beach views. It’s proximity to restaurants, and activities make it an absolute plus. We’ll be back next year!

We have been to the Islands many times. This is by far the best location and condo view we have experienced. We rented a car but really didn't need to, most everything is within walking distance. The wrap around deck was amazing. Sunsets were unreal. You know you are in the right spot when all the sunset cruise tour boats are in front of this condo at the perfect time every night. The kitchen was a little dated but everything worked well. I highly recommend this condo. We will be returning as soon as possible.

This condo has some incredible views and is in the best location in Kaanapali, short walk to shops and restaurants, right on the beach path.
