**NEW Remodel October 2015!!!** We have made many changes to our condo including: all walls painted, four new louvered doors, new wood flooring, new chair rail, new kitchen faucet, new sleeper couch with an extra large mattress, and two new bar stools. The furniture has been rearranged so the bed and couch both look directly at the TV. This provides better function and a more open feeling.

The ground floor location of this studio allows for convenient walk-in/walk-out access without the need to wait for an elevator. Just open the lanai sliding doors and you are steps away from the beach, the pool, and the Ka’anapali walkway. The courtyard offers a tranquil setting with tropical plants, a Koi pond with a waterfall, and the swimming pool. In the evening, the Koi pond is lit by romantic torches and lights. From the condo’s lanai, there are magnificent ocean views and the grassy area by the lanai gives the feeling of a private garden. It’s a delightful place to have a morning coffee or evening drink. The condo has been remodeled entirely and professionally decorated. It has a 42'' flat- screen TV, free secure Wifi, a fully equipped remodeled kitchen, a large king bed, a queen sleeper couch, an opulent bath, and a washer and dryer just outside the door.

The Whaler, a premiere condominium resort, is in the heart of the famous Ka’anapali Beach. Ka’anapali Beach is recognized worldwide as one of the top ten beaches. The spectacular natural setting, along with the many amenities of this resort hotel, make it an outstanding paradise vacation for people of all ages. The Whaler has recently completed more than $30 million worth of property renovations and enhancements over the last 3 plus years. The Whaler on Ka’anapali Beach featured amenities include state of the art fitness center, business center, tennis courts, beach side pool with hydra-spa, an on-site concierge, a beach kiosk with towel service, beach-side gas grills, onsite Aveda spa, air conditioning, and underground parking. The superior location of the property keeps owners and guests in the heart of some of the best shopping, dining, and ocean activities on Maui. Within walking distance are two world class golf courses, Whaler's Village Shopping Center with 65 shops and restaurants, and a whaling museum. A paved promenade allows easy strolling along Ka’anapali beach. A free Trolley also allows you to ride between all the properties on Ka’anapali Beach.

Ka’anapali Beach has much to offer. In addition to long walks on the beach, numerous water activities are available directly along Ka’anapali Beach including catamaran trips (which pick up directly in front of The Whaler), swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, parasailing, whale watching, boating, sailing, surfing, windsurfing, Jet-skiing, dinner cruises, and luaus. It’s also a short stroll along the beach to Black Rock where you can watch the cliff divers in the evening or take the whole family for a safe swim with the turtles and tropical fish during the day. We love staying here and we think you will too.

About Laura

We live in the beautiful central coast of California. We have four children, with only one remaining at home (this picture is of my oldest daughter and me on our Hana trip last year). We are retired and enjoy traveling when our son is not in school.

Laura purchased this condo in 2014

Why Laura chose Lahaina

We have been visiting Hawaii with our family ever since they were young. We like all the islands but Maui is our favorite. We bought The Whaler because we think Kaanapali Beach is the best beach in west Maui and we wanted a place to spend our summers.

What makes this condo unique

After owning unit 907 for one year, we decided to buy again in The Whaler because we love it so much! We love The Whaler because the units are so close to the ocean. It's also great to be right next door to Whaler's Village so you can get food or dine out. My son loves the beach here as it's one of the few places on west Maui that has as sandy ocean bottom. It's great for boogie boarding.

This is the second year we’ve stayed in 162. We’re already talking about dates for next year. Needless to say we love it. Perfect place to relax and enjoy our vacation. Easy check in, check out, condo is clean and comfortable. Love having coffee & breakfast on the lanai.. Wish we

Perfect fit for our family!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we used VRBO. Whaler 162 was a great fit for our family of 4. Loved the clean and modern condo with easy access to the beach. The staff at the Whaler were exceptional. They made our stay very memorable -- right down to Santa checking us in! Highly recommend!
