Had a fabulous stay. Condo was very cleaned, kitchen well stocked with everything you need - and the location can't be beat. We have stayed at the Whaler many times, and this condo is our new favorite!
Overall great location for condo, excellent view of ocean & beach. Would definitely stay here again.
Why 4 and not 5?
The beach right in front of the apartment is the narrowest part of Kaanapali. On high tide there´s no sand at all and in low tide there´s no dry sand at all. TV is not smart so no Netflix, no audio system so no Spotify. Though I´m no expert, decoration and furniture feel and look cheap. The bed is comfortable. The view is terrific.
Thank you for your review. Unfortunately we don't have control over Mother Nature. Hawaii's beaches change throughout the year depending on the tides. There are times that the beach will have an abundant amount of sand and other times when the tide has come in. When the tide does come in, it provides the most amazing waves for body surfing! The Whaler's beach is one of the best along Kaanapali.
We keep all of our furniture updated (living room set just purchased last year) and make great efforts to replace periodically over the years. We purchase directly from the island's best high-end retailers. Buying locally allows us to select quality furniture and keep with the Hawaiian decor and theme.
Beautiful Oceanfront and super convenient access to the beach.
You can't beat the location of this unit. You get the direct ocean view and the convenience of walking down two flights straight to the beach. Loved it and we will be back. Mahalo!
The Whaler Resort unit 251
I visited Maui for a wedding, and was told about the Whaler by my friend.
This was a very well maintained resort, with a friendly and professional staff to greet and check you in. Checking in was seamless. They were very well informed of my arrival. The owners were extremely responsive via text, email, and quick. I really enjoyed my contact with them. A simple issue came up with a light and a blinds. They were addressed the very next day.
The information I was given pre-arrival were very clear and simple. This corner unit on the second floor was clean, beautiful, well furnished, and had enough of what I needed in the kitchen to make me feel at home. Everything in this unit worked. It was so relaxing to sit on the wrap around balcony which gave the feel of being next to the water. The view was just as beautiful as you see in the photos. Access to the beach was through an exit door just outside the Condo door, then one floor down. There is also a shower and foot rinse area to clean up, several feet beyond the door, prior to reentering the building.
There were restaurants and shopping to walk to, less than 50 yards away. I visited 2 other units that friends were staying in in this tower. This unit I felt was the best. I enjoyed my stay and would love to return and stay in this same unit.
Our second time in Whaler 251
The best view in Kaanapali is on the Whaler 251 Lanai. Humpback whales playing, beautiful beach, stunning sunsets. We've already booked our stay for next year.
