First day the shower faucet wouldn’t shut off. Thank goodness my husband knew what to do or the unit may have flooded. Whoever inspected the unit should have seen this right away. Took a day to repair. The unit wasn’t as clean as the cost of a unit like this should be. I ended up cleaning the sinks again because they were not cleaned properly The primary bath smelled moldy and stale. The washer wasn’t cleaned. We took vinegar and some baking soda to try and eliminate the odor that permeated the bedroom and bath No umbrellas or extras in the unit No beach towels We bought our own as you only get two towel cards with the room Not a bad view from the lanai and on the shady side of the building The property grounds are so beautiful and so convenient to the Whaler Village Nice beach area

This is my second time staying in this unit at the Whaler. The condo is the perfect size, the lanai is very large and has a great view of Black Rock and the Whaler is a great location on Kaanapali beach with Whaler's Village right next door. The beach is never too crowded. I highly recommend staying in this unit.

We enjoyed our stay here. It was very clean and spacious for our family of 4. We loved the location as it was walkable to lots of stores and restaurants. The chairs and cooler came in handy. The kitchen was well stocked. We would definitely stay here again.

Most everything was great. Could use safety bars in both showers. The pocket doors to bathrooms are very heavy. Carpet in bedroom needs cleaning. Everything else was great.

The property was beautiful and had everything we needed! We plan to return next year and rent this unit again, if it is available.

We took our 14-year-old granddaughter to Maui and had a blast. The location, both on the beach and in the building, was great (a view of the ocean and Moloka'i beyond from the lanai). The unit was well decorated and mostly clean (except granite in master bath) when we arrived. Plenty of towels provided for the three of us. Caroline, the concierge, was very kind and helpful in setting up activities. Enjoyed the pool. Good restaurants within walking distance along the path toward the Westin. Whaler's Village shopping mall for souvenirs and supplies close by. Please provide better, more comfortable pillows, more kitchen towels, Windex and a couple of dishcloths! The Whaler rents some units directly, but this one is handled by another property manager, so some problems (eg. wifi password issue and housekeeping issues) had to be handled thru them. It would be helpful to have property manager contact info displayed in the unit. We would stay here again.

I brought my family to Hawaii, specifically, Maui, for the first time. I have a young, active family and found the property to have everything and more for us. We weee never bored, but was easy to relax and enjoy spectacular views when needed. We would definitely return.

Steps away from the beach and a 1 min walk to whalers village. The room was clean and fully equipped with everything we needed. We didn’t use the pool as the water was too deep for our 3 year old but the beach was right there and made it easy to go back and forth between the room and the beach. There were no extra blankets in the room which would have been nice for the sofa bed but we brought our own so it wasn’t too much of an inconvenience. Overall we really enjoyed staying here and enjoyed the hotel-like experience.

Pictures do not do this place justice! Perfect location on Kaanapali Beach. 2 minute walk to Black Rock beach for great snorkelling and cliff diving, and adjacent to Whaler’s Village, for a wide variety of restaurants, gift shops and ABC store for many essentials. We had very high expectations of this condo based on the write up (although not many reviews as it’s new to rentals from what I gather) and photos, and were not disappointed, AT ALL!! The actual experience is far better than the pictures. It is newly renovated, impeccably clean, well appointed with many essentials and conveniences. The complimentary shuttle from the rental company is very efficient and convenient. Check in was very seamless and unfortunately so was check out (we didn’t want to leave!! 😊). We stayed here for 2 1/2 weeks and would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone, or to return again ourselves. Mahola!!!

We loved our stay at this property. It was clean, had amazing views, and was just as pictured in the listing. The only negative was that the umbrella provided was broken, but it didn't impact our stay as we were mostly on the go. I notified the property manager, and they thanked me so they could replace it for the next group. The property was close to many great food and shopping locations, and just a quick walk to Black Rock Beach. I would stay here again if I'm ever back in Maui!

5 stars, really enjoyed our stay. One thing I would recommend is putting in some kind of curtains or blinds, there are literally none. Made it a bit tough with young kids and sleeping but other than that it was perfect
