    HAWAII at its best

    The Aston Whaler is a wonderful facility. Location, amenities, and the ocean. What else can you say. We have been there 9 times over the years and are never disappointed. We recommend this to anyone who is planning a trip to Maui.

    Smack dab in the middle of the best part of Hawaii

    What a wonderful place to stay. Fantastic value for being center stage in best part of the Utopic Islands. We booked a 2 bath one Bed condo, one back from the front on the outer Village side, 4 floors up. The place was extremely well set-up for all our needs.The decorations were dated, but the so was the nightly price, we felt it was by far the best "value" we've gotten on a vrbo in years. We love to cook local fare and the condo kitchen was perfect and well stocked, the facilities grills are next to the beach & were well cared for, clean and convenient. The Whaler staff was phenomenal. The Ocean views mesmerizing...Spectacular sunsets from our own deck, the roll of the surf was the perfect music to lull us to sleep each night and wake us each morning. We will be back.

    Family friendly with great ocean view and a full kitchen

    Having vegetarians in my group, we found the full kitchen included in this Aston indispensable. Accessing the Kaananapali beach was as simple as taking the elevator downstairs, crossing the lawn in between the 2 towers in the property, and stepping onto the beach sand. The shops at the nearby Whaler Village is 5 mins away on foot, which came in handy when we realized at 9:00 PM that we had run out of milk for breakfast next day. There is no restaurant on the property and the pool is just fair compared to the fancy ones in nearby hotels. In our original booking thru the Costco vacation package, we found our allotted room in Tower one (facing north) not to our liking because the HVAC noise from the roof of a neighboring property to the north was just too loud to enjoy sitting in the balcony. Because the view and experience in the balcony was important to use we ended up upgrading to another room Tower 2 (south) with the balcony facing the grass lawns in between the towers, having a pretty good view of the ocean on the west and with Black Rock further north in sight. Another thing kids enjoyed over the first couple of days was feeding the Koi fish in the small pond in the yard. The concierge at the property is helpful with local information about the activities and tours, though we ended up using 'Expedia' who happens to have an office in the Hyatt nearby.

    Has everything you need

    What a wonderful place! We had a studio and spent 8 nights here. So much room and the full kitchen was nice so we could make breakfast each morning. The location is ideal and the views from our room were of the ocean and mountain. The grounds were soo pretty. The room was fully stocked with all kitchen supplies, broom and pan, dishwasher ext. Every floor has FREE laundry which was amazing. The gym was big and they had wipes for machines and towels. The pool was being renovated so we could either go to beach (no charge to take a chair or two on the beach) or use the pool at the Kaanapali. This place is geared towards the older adult. The age was about 60ish up. The pool was mostly an older crowd (Im assuming they were Kaanapali and Whaler patrons mixed in). The plus was there was only one or two screaming kids. The minus is that a younger person might find it TOO quiet here. We loved it. We are in our late forties and welcomed the more mature crowd. I could read a book in peace. We loved being so close to the Kaanapali (the most Hawaiian hotel) and enjoyed their free music and hula. close to black rock and Whalers Village to eat and mill around. Pros-ideal location free laundry nice gym quiet. Cant hear a peep from the next room! most comfy bed ever Cons- -if you are in your 20s and 30s you might find it too boring/quiet. -washer machine smelled horrible of mildew (I left a note telling them about Affresh to keep machine running and smelling great) -dishwasher needed Affresh also because it looked dingy inside and didnt run well. At check-out the kind gentleman gave us a discount to apologize for the dish washer not working. Such Aloha! We loved this place and it has become the only place we will stay when we come back to Maui. It had everything I needeed to make my stay amazing. Thank you Whaler!
