Ocean front first floor is our favorite location. No waiting for the elevator. The wrap around lanai adds extra outdoor living space.This unit is tastefully decorated and fully stocked with everything you need. The only downside are some non-critical maintenance issues, but hopefully they will be quickly addressed. The hall bath was missing a door knob/lockset. Apparently it had malfunctioned and it is a foreign design without local parts available.

Amazing view and easy in and out.

Perfect location, Very Comfortable, older unit may need some upgrades but nice anyway.
Once we got in the unit there was a very musty smell. like it had been closed up for a long time. once the unit was opened for a week the front rooms started smelling better, just a in the back bedroom was there a lingering smell

Walking out onto our ground floor lanai each morning was an amazing experience. It felt like the ocean and beachfront was all ours! It was peaceful and intimate. The unit was very well provisioned, (kitchen items, beach items, etc), and the laundry in-unit was very helpful. Comfortable mattresses and decor made it a great rental. The Whaler property is exactly what we were looking for. Some infrastructure without being a giant overwhelming resort. We enjoyed the close by parking, as well as the close proximity to Whalers Village. We will definitely consider staying at unit 102 on our next trip.

We just got home from our wonderful vacation in Maui, and I simply can't say enough about how perfect our condo at The Whaler was for our family of 6. It was spacious, clean, and well stocked with everything we needed for a perfect vacation. With 4 kids, it's hard to find a place to stay that doesn't feel crowded. The bedrooms were large and having 2 bathrooms was wonderful. The unit had lovely beach towels included, but after using them once and washing them, we opted for the Whaler towels. You don't have to wash them! Just turn them back in for clean ones! Our condo had a huge lanai that led to the beautiful grounds of the complex, and just steps to the beautiful beach. Perfect for running back to the condo if you need something. Our kids didn't want to leave the beach in front of our condo. They spent most of the days riding the waves on boogie boards and snorkeling at Black Rock. Our unit also had 4 awesome beach chairs that we thoroughly enjoyed! The Whaler is well maintained and very clean. The staff are super friendly and always making sure your needs are met. We drove around and walked through other resorts and wouldn't choose to stay anywhere else. The Whaler is just steps to the many wonderful restaurants & shopping at Whalers Village. We will definitely be staying at Whaler 102 again!

This was our second stay in this unit and 5th at the Whaler. It is absolutely the perfect location and you can't beat this unit.Best ocean front location of any hotel or condo. And the property manager, Megan, went out of her way to insure we had a great stay!

This condo is on Kaanapali Beach and is close to everything - the beach, the pool, bbq area, walking path, whaler’s village, restaurants and snorkeling at Back Rock. You honestly don’t have to drive anywhere. You are literally steps from the beach. The condo is well equipped and we sat outside on the large lanai that has perfect views. If you leave the door open while you sleep you hear the crashing of the waves. Love this place!

Our accommodations were updated, very clean, very comfortable. All the convienience's of home, really. The sliding doors were so nice to have. We each had our own private entrances if we wished. The long lanai on the side of the condo was fabulous. We had a small child with us and the grass area next to our condo was perfect for him to play ball and run around. The view was spectacular.

This was our second stay at Whaler 102 and we had a wonderful time! A great unit if you are traveling with children- it is equipped with everything we needed for our 2 year old. The balcony overlooking the ocean is a perfect place to enjoy breakfast or a glass of wine while watching the sunset. Can't say enough great things about this unit- we look forward to our return.

All we can say is WOW!! We were fortunate to stay at this dream rental April 3-10, 2018. It was perfect for my 4 children, my spouse and I. The property was clean when we arrived and had everything we needed. It has beautiful furnishings and you can tell this place is kept up. The property management company is very professional. I had to contact them while I was there because I found a damaged closet door in the guest room. They were pleasant to deal with and instructed me how to report my finding. We also enjoyed how they really have there stuff together. When you rent their condo, they give you a link that has tons of information about the check in/out process, wifi, etc. For them to provide us with all this information just made everything easy. We loved the closet that offered beach necessities like beach chairs, sand toys, and beach cooler bag. The location of the property was awesome! We loved our oceanfront view! Having coffee out on the lanai was the best!! We could head out to the beautiful beach as it was probably about 80-90 feet from the condo, which made it easy when we needed to take a break from the sun and get lunch. This condo is also just steps away from the BBQ area if you feel like grilling up your own dinner and about a 5 minute walk to restaurants at the Whaler's Village. The pool area is about a 30 second walk. The grass area off the side of the condo was a bonus for the kids as they could have somewhere to play. We were very impressed with the upkeep at The Whaler. Every single day that we were there we could see staff on top of just keeping up the premises. They were all very nice and helpful. We really had a fabulous time and can't wait to visit again!! We love this condo!!! Thank you Hawaii Life for offering such a wonderful place, we will be back!!

Our Family vacation was a huge success and the Condo was exactly what we were looking for. This two bedroom condo was well appointed and had everything you'd need for your vacation stay. It was really like home away from home. The views were AMAZING. Black Rock and the beautiful beach of Kaanapali. Being on the first floor we could walk right out to the beach, pool or grilling area. There are restaurants and shopping within walking distance and the grounds were immaculate. Check in was easy and the staff are outstanding. This condo will not disappoint.

Loved that this is a 1st floor sits high enough for great ocean and sunset views and able your able to walk out of the patio and down to the Pool, BBQ or beach. We cooked several meals there and it was a pleasure to find good quality cooking equipment, all kind of spices and just about every utensil I would find in my own kitchen. Also supplied us with Beach towels, chairs, beach cooler bag and so many things that usually I end up buying my past trips to Maui. Absolutely loved this place and hope to stay there again.

This unit was perfect for my family of 5. Location is close to Black Rock as well as shopping at the Whaler mall.
Being on the 1st floor was so convenient for daytime activities as well as cooking on the grills at night. The unit had everything we needed from a fully stocked kitchen to pool noodles / chairs / towels. Will definitely try to book this again if we ever make it back to Maui.

One of the most memorable trips! We will be back!

Absolutely loved this condo and the location! Oceanfront and being on the 1st floor with easy access to beach, pool, walkway and shopping was very convenient! The condo was very clean with comfortable beds and everything we needed from beach chairs to boogie boards was included. Enjoyed the grills right outside our patio door and the fire pit at night. I would definitely stay at this condo again on my next trip to Maui!

We had a great experience at the Whaler. The location is wonderful- easy access to both the ocean and the pool. Also very close to Whaler's Village which has great restaurants and shopping.

Our 10 month old son was with us and this unit is fully equipped for children- the pack-n-play was set up upon our arrival and the high chair was also set out at the dining room table. Everything is in perfect condition! There are also sand toys, beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas and boogie boards to use so you won't need to rent anything to enjoy the beach!

The unit is so nice we actually spent a lot of time sitting on the patio (which overlooks the ocean) to escape the sun and just enjoy the beautiful views! Even though it is on the ground floor, we never heard any noise from neighboring units. The kitchen is fully equipped- even has plates/bowls for kids. The beds are wonderful. I really can't say enough positive things about this unit. You definitely won't be disappointed if you stay at the Whaler 102!

We booked on short notice and we are so glad we did. This unit has the best location on the whole property. Great views, 30 steps from the beach/pool and a stones throw from great restaurants and entertainment. The condo was clean and well stocked with beach toys and chairs/towels etc. We had small kids and it was a perfect unit for them. We really enjoyed feeding the fish in the Whaler Pond every morning and the staff was very friendly. we will definitely be back!

Location is fantastic! Unit is in need of updates but it is functional. Unit is for sale. We were inconvenienced during our stay for a showing. We nicknamed the hall bath “the escape room” as the door latch would stick locking in the occupant and requiring the door to be opened by someone from outside. The management company was extremely rude and unprofessional. They leaned on us to allow the unit to be shown and then they disturbed our belonging without our consent while prepping the unit for the showing. Despite our accommodating their showing, the management company was extremely rude when I inquired by text as to the status of our deposit refund after nearly 2 weeks. I was chastised for sending a text at an early hour. I am in a different time zone and opted to text instead of calling at such an early hour. They refused to answer my question because they were so put out by my text. Unbelievable! We have stayed at the Whaler at least a dozen times. This is the first time we have encountered thus tote of issue. Despite the fabulous location at this property, I would not recommend this unit. The the amount of money we paid we deserved to be treated with respect.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful our recent stay was at Whaler's 102. From quickly responding to my initial inquiries to assisting us leading up to and throughout our stay, Hawaii Life was great to work with. The property itself is amazing, with direct access to the lawn, pool, outdoor dining area, ocean - the bedrooms are spacious, the kitchen well appointed, and the living area incredibly comfortable. My family and I so enjoyed the experience, we are already talking about when we can go back and will be sure to book this exact same unit.



on 07/07/2018

The condo was everything we dreamed it would be. The location was central to all the activities, restaurants and shops. The unit itself was a perfect fit for our family!



on 02/11/2018

Property was in a great location, Whaler staff very helpful, but the inside of the condo needs attention. AC didn't work correctly, servicemen had to come out 5 days. The master bath floor was dirty upon arrival and there was no soap. We had to buy paper towels and toilet paper after 7 days. The floor beneath the w/d is rotten and so it doesn't sit level. TV Internet out for 24 hours. Called people we rented from, disconnected, called back put on hold for over ten min. emailed. no response.



on 12/20/2017

Awesome location, on the boardwalk by the pool, all amenities, couldn’t have been better. Beautiful lawn for kids to play, washer dryer in unit. Perfect views. The Whaler is a wonderful place to stay and we splurged for this unit.
