    Awesome time at the Whaler unit 869

    If your thinking about traveling to Maui and wanting to know where to stay the Whaler is your place. It is nice because it is more affordable than the resorts that surround it and offers spacious units, large lanai’s, wonderful views in the best location on The island. We stayed in unit 869 and rented on VRBO. The owner is great to work with and the unit met all of our needs. Kaanapali beach is one of the best in the world with great snorkeling, swimming, and a safe fun beach walk that is conveniently located next to awesome shopping and restaurants. We have come here for years and will definitely be back for some more memorable times.

    Love the Whaler. We have stayed there for the past 10 years.

    We book through VRBO and a private owner. Best place on Kaanapali beach, close to shops and restaurants and the best view of Black Rock. The place is very clean and has a great pool, friendly staff and you can walk in both directions to other hotels along the path.

    A home away from home.

    This condo was exactly what I would expect from an excellent facility. It is a condo complex in a resort location. It is not a resort in itself, i.e. no restaurants on the property, only a small pool, etc. What you do get is very large rooms, comfortable beds with quality sheets and towels, very clean with daily service, an excellent kitchen with all the required extras to make the kitchen complete, a very large outside patio which was ideal to see the ocean at a 90 degree angle, beautiful birds which would visit us (my wife was even able to hand feed a few of them), an excellent outside area with cooking grills, private underground parking, and a very good concierge service in the lobby for booking various activities. The staff was extremely friendly and always kept hot coffee and fruit flavored tea available from early morning to late afternoon. This is what we wanted. We felt like this was our home for 6 nights. A mall was only a five minute walk away, convienent for incidentals and shopping if that is your thing. A wonderful Safeway was only a short drive away. So if a condo is what you want and not a disney type resort, then I highly recommend the Whaler. We had no concerns, but I feel the staff would address any problems that might surface.

    Great location

    This is a condo complex in a great location. It’s right on Kaanapali Beach next door to the Whaler’s Village shopping center. We stayed in a one bedroom two bath ocean view unit for two weeks. The entire complex is great but our unit (1057) had a few minor issues. First, we had to run the shower for 10 minutes, and that’s not an exaggeration, to get hot water in either bathroom. Second was the WiFi. It was fine as long as we were in the living room with the router. But once we went into another room or on the lanai the signal pretty well went away. Third, the living room furniture, a sofa and love seat, were broken down and uncomfortable. The daily maid service was excellent. We would definitely stay here again. Oh, if your package includes a welcome amenity, don’t count on getting it. Ours included a “senior” amenity which we never saw, in spite of my repeated requests of the staff.

    No services

    Excellent room - clean - roomy. Ocean view suite was 3rd floor mostly facing the mall immediately to the south - 20º view of ocean. No food or drink options on property - have to haul in all your food & drink. Good beach access. Good for old folks and families with very young. If you are on south side of building plan on everyone in the mall (30 yds south) banging, cleaning, delivering from 7 am til 10am. I believe you can do better for $500/night. Also, had to park 100 yards from building 1/2 the time. Mall nice but very very busy.
