My husband/I and 3 younger children recently stayed in this gorgeous 10th floor corner unit. We've always stayed at a hotel nearby but this condo was so perfect - will only stay here on return visits. Decor awesome; communication w/owner and Whaler staff exceptional; super clean; immaculate/gorgeous/quiet resort; heated pool; fantastic price - really this condo has it all!!

This is a great condo! It is nicely decorated, clean, quiet, and such a wonderful view! This is our second stay in this condo & we plan to stay here when we return to Maui.

The Whaler is a lovely property. Not a giant mega resort, which makes it easy, and not so crowded. Yet it still has all the amenities you could need, including beautifully kept grounds with a pretty koi pond, a nice pool, easy beachfront access, towel service, and all the walkability of the Kaanapali beach walkway, including being right next door to Whaler’s Village. The condo itself is beautiful, clean and spacious. Perfect for a family, especially having two bedrooms, two bathrooms, washer & dryer, and a full kitchen stocked with all the necessary supplies (appliances, plates, utensils, cups, etc.). The wrap around lanai is gorgeous, with views of the ocean and the mountains. The property owner was very communicative and a pleasure to work with. Check in and check out at the front desk were easy. Parking was included, and also easy. We would definitely stay there again.

Decided to join our daughter on a rather spontaneous trip to Maui. Normally we stay in Wailea and go in the fall. We were concerned it might be too crowded but we were pleasantly surprised it wasn't bad. Haven’t stayed at the Whaler since the late 70’s and really kept my expectations low. We were thrilled with the huge remodeled corner unit with a massive balcony and views of both the mountains and beach. Glad to be in Tower 1 with regards to the shade when sitting on balcony. We took advantage of most amenities, pickle ball, Gym, pool. The unit did provide beach umbrellas and chairs, which we used daily. The proximity to Whalers Village was convenient. The grounds are beautiful, clean and impeccably kept. Great stay. 🌴

Loved the condo and the location in the heart of Kanapali beach. Condo is updated and kitchen is stocked! Perfect for us! The Lanai is fabulous - lots of chairs and tables along with a chaise. Beach chairs, cooler and umbrella available in the condo along with 2 boogie boards and some noodles. It was very windy on the beach the week we were here so couldn’t use the umbrella so we just used beach chairs provided by the whaler down by the pool! Quick walk to Black Rock and was lovely being right next to the Whaler Village shops and restaurants. Quick 10-15 to Lahaina and the Safeway. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks Jon!!! Jon was very responsive and helpful. Oh and WiFi in condo and by the pool was appreciated by my teens and this working mom.

Great property with excellent views. The wraparound lanai was great no matter what time of day. Beds are comfortable and condo had everything we needed, including beach chairs and toys. The kitchen has all the utensils needed, some you just need to look for. The sleeper sofa is comfy and the rollaway bed came in handy too. The living room has a great TV for movie nights and the dining table is perfect for games. The resort towel process was great, as we always had fresh to use. The pool is perfectly situated, and a great place to be at sunset. Hopefully COVID capacity restrictions end soon, so restaurants are easier to get into. Almost impossible to get reservations at the nice places. We were lucky and when we were told the waitlist was over 2 hours, it was usually more like 1 hour. Several places had suspended their happy hour too, so we couldn’t count on that. We had many more food truck meals than planned, but at least everyone could find what they like. We did Hula Grill next door twice, once at sunset (well worth it). Black rock was a little disappointing for most of our visit (only a 5.5 on snorkel report). We drove a few minutes up the coast to beaches rated 8.5, and had amazing snorkeling. Overall I highly recommend Jon’s place for your vacation in Maui.

This unit has mountain and ocean views, is spacious, has everything you need in the kitchen, is well decorated, and in a central location of Kaanapali. Our family will definitely stay here again!

I have stayed at the Whaler several times. This unit is updated and exceptionally clean with everything you will need for a comfortable stay. Spacious wrap around decks for ocean or mountain views and enjoying your morning coffee. The Whaler is a well maintained property with helpful staff and great location on Kaanapali beach.

We loved our week long stay here! The place was very clean and spacious. The lanai was huge and there is access to it off of each room with views of the mountains on one side and ocean on the other. It had everything we needed, also there were boogie boards, a cooler, beach chairs, beach umbrellas etc... The property itself was very beautiful and very well maintained with the Koi pond, pool and beautiful, clean beach right out front. Right next to it is Whaler's village where there are tons of shopping and dining choices. We could have not asked for a better place and location to stay while we were in Maui! The owner, Jon Hamel was very accommodating, he answered all my questions in a very timely manner and was a pleasure to deal with. If and when we return to Maui I would choose this place over any other, we were very blessed to find this little piece of paradise. Staying here made our vacation even more enjoyable, if that's possible!

We shared this unit with another couple and had plenty of room for everyone. Both Bedrooms are big and have balcony views. Unit was well equipped. Plenty of TV's for everyone. The lanai had a sweeping view from ocean to mountains, just breathtaking. Really enjoyed having coffee in the morning enjoying the spectacular view! Jon was avialable to answer any questions and very easy to work with. Would definitely stay again!! Mahalo from the Roses & the Kheels

WOW! Very spacious corner unit with plenty of room inside and outside on the deck for our family of 6. Tastefully decorated and updated interior. Beautiful Maui mountain view as well as the courtyard and beachfront. The Whaler Condo property is so well located to everything it is rarely necessary to drive anywhere. Having the pool and the beach right in front was perfect. It would hard for us to stay anywhere else when coming back to Maui.

Our family (4 adults) had a vacation to remember on Maui. This condo is spacious and well located in the complex. The bedrooms were quite large with updated bathrooms for each. Each bedroom was attached to the L-shaped spacious lanai. The lanai itself had plenty of seating areas to eat and/or relax with spectacular views of the both the beach and mountains. Beach toys were supplied. The kitchen was updated with great appliances and an unbelievable amount of dishes, glasses, utensils, and small appliances as well as pots and pans. At the end of each day we would just sit out on the lanai and relax and discuss the next day's adventure. The complex is close to all sorts of shopping and restaurants. A great spa is also located in the complex as well. Find time for a massage!

Spectacular is a great description of this beautiful condo right on Kaanapali Beach. Very spacious, modern condo with all the ammentities of being at home. Down the elevator and a short path right to the pristine Kaanapali Beach. After playing at the beach my kids loved the refreshing pool as we sat close by and watched them. The views are amazing from the beach to the mountains behind. We also loved sitting out on the spacious lanai. Very convenient location to many restaurants and shopping in Whaler's Village. We will be back to this perfect spot!

Kaanapali is in the middle of it all, and this Whaler condo is in the middle of Kaanapali. The condo is a very large 2 bedroom with oversized rooms. The corner unit has a wrap around balcony that provides views of both the beach and the lush mountains. We ate nearly every meal outside listenig to the waves crash to our right, while enjoying the ever present rainbows to our left. If you haven't been to Kaanapali, you can find great snorkeling around black rock a few 100 yards down the beach to the right and find a surf spot at the other end of the beach. In between is the perfect beach. We also spent a fair amount of time in the beautiful pool. If you need a large two bedroom walkable to nealry everything that make Maui Maui. This is the perfect condo for you.
