Whaler 807 is one back from direct ocean view front, one bedroom, two baths, 1118 square feet including a 213 sq. ft. lanai with spectacular sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean to the west and beautiful Maui mountains to the east.

NOTE: The Whaler Resort is not only located in the best location on one of the world's best beaches, but the complex towers are also closer to the beach and ocean than any other resort on Kaanapali Beach. One of a kind!!

When you know the Whaler Resort (which you will when you irresistably come back) you know that Whaler 807 is a prime desired location on the resort. One back from direct ocean front gives you mind blowing ocean and beach views, south side of Tower 1 gives you spectacular sunsets over the island of Lanai as well as beautiful sunrises over the Maui mountains. This unit is facing the manicured courtyard and pool and is on the eighth floor so it is private and more quiet than other locations on the resort. This south facing location is also protected from the prevailing north east trade winds so is mostly calm which is a great thing to take into consideration. You will be entertained (November through April) by the migrating whales and dolphins putting on a natural show as well as beautiful catamarans sailing through the water and pulling up right in front on the beach picking up whale watching, snorkeling, and sunset cruises. Relax, enjoy from your spacious lanai watching the sunrise over the West Maui Mountains as you drink your morning coffee, watching other worldly sunsets over the ocean, then fall asleep later to the mesmerizing sounds of the surf.

The Whaler Resort complex is not only located in the best location on one of the top rated beaches worldwide, the resort Tower buildings are built closer to the beach and ocean front for you to enjoy.

There is a wonderful beachfront walkway that runs the entire length of Kaanapali Beach. Take a few steps down the beach or beach walkway to the north and you will find the world famous black rock - these waters are the safest in Hawaii for snorkeling, bogey boarding, kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming, or just sitting in the warm, clear water. Right next door just a few steps down the beachfront walkway is Whaler's Village Shopping Center which offers a wide array of shopping and dining and a museum as well as various bars. Whaler's Village is the entertainment hub of Kaanapali Beach and features gorgeous opportunities for oceanfront dining at favorites like Leilani's on the Beach, The Hula Grill, and the Monkeypod Kitchen by Merriman. During happy hour listen to live location Hawaiian music at the Hula grill and also live music in the evening. Take time to enjoy it all!

Like or need to golf? We have that too! Just across the street is The Royal Kaanapali Golf Course with 36 holes and a driving range all within walking distance. With just a short drive you are in Kapalua at the Bay Golf Course or the Plantation Golf Course which includes a driving range also. Plantation is famous and home to the Sentry Tournament of Champions. Tee it up!

The Whaler is one of only two premier condo resorts on Kaanapali Beach with impressive amenities include concierge, bellman, beachfront pool and hot tub, spacious remodeled lobby, fully professionally equipped fitness center, refinished tennis courts, business center, salon and spa, and beachfront daily maintained gas barbeque grills free to use.

There is an additional "resort fee" of $25/night charged by the Whaler Resort Complex. This fee covers parking, use of pool, fitness center, 24 hour front desk staff, spa, tennis, barbeque grills, free beach chairs, free beach towel replacement daily. This fee is collected by the Whaler front desk staff and is not part of our rent. Registration Number: 440080020108, TA-092-244-2240-01, GE-092-244-2240-01

Yes it's a little dated as previoulsy reviewed but very neat and clean. The view and location are great. I would stay there again. Check in was a cluster but the property manager responded quickly and made it right.

Love the service at the Whaler such kind people. The room was wonderful can’t wait to see the updates that are coming. We would definitely stay here again next year. Maybe the host could communicate better as we arrived late and usually receive directions were to get the key and etc. I had email say I need my confirmation number to get in but not whom to talk to with the number. I called over and over to host as it stated to call with questions but no answer from her. In the morning we had a message did we get in ok. That is such a let down since she could have just said go to front desk. We were traveling and keep calling for an hour and a half till we arrived stressed out to find they would help us in and we’re so kind.

Upon arrival, unit was only partially cleaned. Difficult to get to the manager with the time difference. Called VRBO's helpline and they were of no use. After 2 days mostly squared away. The unit has had minimal upgrades and is in need of attention. At least 8 lightbulbs needed replacing, toilet seat was broken, shower curtain torn, dent in refrigerator door. A/C in living area did not work as well as the bedroom A/C. Right sliding door was difficult to open, couch cushions were worn out. With that said, we actually stayed a little longer because the Whaler, and this unit's location was excellent. Just know its a bit rundown.

We enjoyed our stay. The ocean views were beautiful and the condo was well stocked. The unit appears bigger in pictures because of the mirrored walls. Overall, the unit is fine. It is ready for some updating -- stained carpet, chips in kitchen floor, peeling formica countertops, chipped mirrors on wall. The master bathroom is nicely updated and the master bed was very comfy.

This condo is on a very good location. However the furniture are out dated.

The Whaler has lovely grounds, great location and friendly professional staffing. Unit 807 appears to have never been remodeled from when it was 1st built which we were told was in the seventies. There is peeling paint, stains all over the carpet wallpaper peeling. Stains/dirt around the bathroom door handles are pretty gross. When we arrived we weren't allowed to check in till 2 hours after the time that was stated because the place hadn't been cleaned. The agent Beckie couldn't be reached. Whaler staff were pleasant but that didn't help the waiting issue. When we entered the unit (6 PM) it smelled like it hadn't been cleaned but it aired out relatively quickly once doors were opened. The switch for the bedroom fan was broken.One of the lamps was broken as well. That's all the bad news the good news is the view is phenomenal, the lanai is wonderful there's plenty of room especially if there's only 2 of you. Everything worked in the kitchen. Being steps from the beach is a great bonus and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. After a while the dismal condo sort of melted into the background because Maui is so beautiful. We would definitely come and stay at the Whaler again but next time we would know that we should ask for a premium unit. Having not been here before we did not understand that premium meant lovely. I wouldn't recommend 807. Beckie, our hostess on VRBO Was unavailable when we could not check in but after a while she turned up (via phone) and did say that she would adjust the price to reflect the fact that we weren't able to check in on time. We did get a $200 refund after we checked out.

Fabulous mountain and ocean view from 8th floor balcony. Spacious condo for 4 adults and we appreciated having 2 full bathrooms. We would definitely return to this unit at The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach!

The view from the lanai is perfect for us but we found it hard to leave for the day!!! You just get everything…from the courtyard, pool, beach, sunsets, whale watching and boats picking up people on the beach for a cruise! Turn your head to the left and you get beautiful green landscape with mountains! We would definitely stay in this room again!! The Whaler is so convenient to many activities, love it!!

The location was great! The space was so nice with a full, well stocked kitchen and large deck off the living space and bedroom. Watched whales and the tour boats load and unload daily. Would be great for 2 couples or a family. The pool and beach were steps away. Loved walking to great restaurants and watching the sunset ritual at Black Rock. The underground parking was nice. There is a $25/day fee but we were aware of that before arriving. Will definately stay at The Whaler again!

When we read that the condo overlooked the courtyard we did not know we would also have a lovely view of the ocean. The condo is well supplied. The complex is lovely. Convenient location. We would stay here again.

A beautiful property and location. Everything we hoped for and then some

February 2023
This place was at a beautiful resort with beach access and a heated pool which was great for night swimming! There were only 2 of us but it would have slept 4 very comfortably. There was a full kitchen with everything we needed. There were games, beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers and even snorkeling gear available for our use in the room! Near lots of shops and restaurants. The concierge there set us up for a week of adventures and we had the time of our lives!! We will definitely stay here again when we come back to this part of Hawaii.

We’ve stayed at the Whaler multiple times in different room. This room did not disappoint. Clean, EXCELLENT view, plenty of plates, utensils, etc. The management company responsible for the booking was very communicative. Would love to book with them for future stays.

This place is great!. Very spacious (with the bedroom) and very tastefully decorated. Extended balcony with perfect views of the ocean, courtyard and the boardwalk along Kaanapali Beach. Close to snorkeling and tons of fun at Whalers Village. Would definitely stay here again! Thank you for the great memories...Brian

This was a beautiful complex right on a great beach and the condo had perfect views from the 8th floor. We really enjoyed the balcony. The unit was large and comfortable. A bit dated, but still very functional and well stocked. Highly recommend.

July 2022
We actually overplanned for things not to be as promised but we didn't need to!! Everything was fabulous except for bedroom cable is not working well, Boogie boards are all broken, and hot water at peak times can be a real challenge! They're almost not worth mentioning, except that for those of you who come after us, I'm sure these things will be fixed... Everyone's been great...a blown light bulb in lamp by bedroom door tripped a breaker and mgmt showed us where it was to reset it. You will have fun!

Our first experience using VRBO was definitely a good one! The Whaler #807 was a wonderful unit. We were impressed how well stocked it was with towels, soap, Kleenex, paper towels, pots & pans, dishes, silverware, hair dryers, …… along with cleanliness! The view from our lanai was spectacular of the ocean, courtyard, and mountains! Thanks to Beckie for a wonderful, accommodating 50th anniversary/retirement celebration!

We really enjoyed our stay here. There were 4 of us our girls (early 20’s) slept in the Murphy bed. They said it was very comfortable! No complaints. Perfect location.

Overall great place to stay. Easy process to check in. Everyone there was very friendly. Sunsets are amazing on this side of island. Pool was cold but sounds like it was a maintenance issue they were working to fix. Just jump in and you will be fine. We had everything we needed in the room to make this stay great.

GREAT location. Right in the middle of Kaanapali Beach. Basically, adjacent to all the restaurants and Whaler’s Village. The buildings are VERY well maintained and updated throughout. The staff is excellent. This cons is one back from ocean front, so amazing! I've stayed at this condo three times now and it is very well kept. Everything clean and in good working order (shower, kitchen appliances etc.). Beach gear in the closet was convenient. Lauri was easy to communicate with. This was just an easy, pleasant and uneventful experience with no surprises. I would definitely stay here again. LOVE THIS CONDO!!!

Decided to add a few days to our 2 week vacation. We've always stayed on Kaanapali, but not at the Whaler. It's great for adults who appreciate less action and activity on property. We really enjoyed our stay!

This is a great location in the complex. Great views! Nice set up with lots of room. Could have used a few more items in the kitchen, but we got by. Dated decor, but not bad. We had the same issue are one of the other reviewers. Showed up for 3:00 check in and the cleaning crew was not even started. They said they were not told there would be a check in that day. Then they did a hurry up job and we got possession at 5:20. Couldn’t reach the property manager. The next day she responded and gave us a late check out as an apology and refunded our cleaning fee. Still, it was a nice place to stay.
