I loved this property! It was clean and fairly well stocked. I loved the extra bonus of having snorkel gear, beach chairs, and a boogie board in the unit! such a nice touch! The view from the lanai is amazing! I loved to sit there as often as possible when I wasn't out on the amazing sands of Kaanapali beach. The whaler is very convenient to The shops in Whalers village and the beaches right outside your door step!

Really, why would I want to tell people about this place? They might want to rent it when I want to go!!! Patti Meyer is a wonderful woman to rent from. Her go-to-girl, Mary Mishimi and Patti go out of their way to make your stay everything you want it to be. From Unit 661 you can see the mountains, Whaler's Village and the ocean for sunrises,people watching and sunsets. It is great having a kitchen.We sit on the lanai for breakfast and watch the whales and other water activity. We are able to bar-b-que on the grills downstairs or have pupus on the beach for sunset.

The Whaler is perfectly situated next to the beach, you can surf and snorkel very close by and there are plenty of places to eat as well as to take a relaxing stroll while taking in the sea breeze. The Condo is great and has everything you could need including a Lanai with Ocean views, a fully equipped kitchen for when you want that home cooked meal and a giant comfortable bed! We will definitely return - there is plenty to do on Maui to keep you entertained.

We had a lovely time here. The bed was fabulous. We thought it was great to be close enough to walk to the beach and snorkeling. The birds kept time for us, settling into the trees off the lanai at sunset, waking with the sun. Only distraction was a lot of food smells and some noise from whaler's village shopping area, but really, you're in Hawaii, what's to complain about!

Not something I want to deal with when I'm on vacation.
