If I could rate more than 5 stars, I would. I stayed in Unit 159 at the Whaler and it completely surpassed my expectations. The pictures on the listing did not do it justice. The unit and the complex were in the perfect location. It was literally right next door to the Hula Grill and Whaler's Village. It took me less than 2 minutes to walk to the beach from the unit. I loved being able sit on the patio and watch the ocean with my morning coffee or my evening glass of wine. The unit itself was immaculate and fully stocked with everything I needed. It even had a beach umbrella, beach chairs, and boogie boards.

The Whaler Complex also has tons of equipment to rent for snorkeling and stand up paddle boarding. I appreciated being able to do laundry, which was conveniently located across the hall. The bed was very comfortable, and the unit was quiet and dark, which I was pleasantly surprised by.

This was a last minute booking, and Maui Beachfront Rentals were very responsive, friendly, and easy to work with.

I look forward to visiting again. A true gem!

Came to Hawaii for two weeks with my husband and our son and we stayed at this unit. It was a great experience. An excellent start to our summer. The first thing you should know about this location on the island is there is a alot to do in this near area. My husband golfed a couple of times just up the street, and he said the course was amazing. I didn't mind having the outlet shopping mall next door - who doesn't like shopping on vacation? The condo suited us as nicely as the location. You can't beat being this close to beach, and the beach is spectacular. Basically no rocks, all soft sand, and gentle waves my boy could play in without me worrying about shore break and riptides. We also appreciated having so many entertainment options in the place. Even went to a Redbox to utilize the DVD player. It was very clean in the condo that suited all our needs. The whole resort is just gorgeous. It doesn't hurt the location is so picturesque. Anyway, we had a fantastic time. My son is already begging to go back. And he won't have to beg Mom to hard. Thanks!

This was the first time my husband and I used VRBO and it did not disappoint. The condo was perfect for us. Just sitting on the porch I could enjoy the ocean. Also the grills are close so it was easy to grill dinner and watch the sunset. Someone had left some beach chairs and snorkel equipment. The Whaler supplies beach/pool towels. The bed is very high off the ground but we didn't have a problem with that. Overall I feel like the pictures show the condo perfectly and we had a very good experience through the entire process.

Review by John H.

Had a recent great visit to Maui and stay at this condo. Condo is very spacious, clean and the furnishings comfortable. Lots of closet and drawer space for everything you might bring. Although not oceanfront unit, great ocean view from the spacious patio with wall to wall sliding doors in living and bedroom. Some reviews mentioned and we also heard while there that unit is one of the ones not yet updated in kitchen and bathroom, but everything was still perfectly fine. Some also mentioned that there is no beach equipment, but whether from owners or past visitors, the unit does have 3 or 4 beach chairs, and now also has two pool noodles that we left behind. We had a great stay here and hope to be back. One piece of info. -- bed is VERY high off the ground, if you're short might need a step stool! ;-) Rental company was great to work with too. Hope to be back -- can't beat the location along beautiful Kaanapali Beach!

I love Ka'anapli, so I knew that wherever we stayed, the beach would be amazing. But when we booked unit 159 my biggest concern was it being on the ground floor. I love to sit on the lanai and read a book, or enjoy the view, but I was worried that foot traffic would make that uncomfortable.

But this unit was perfect! You walk out the huge sliding glass door and it's all grass and a short walk to the brand new BBQs and the beach. There is no walkway, so traffic is minimal.

And as for the unit itself, it was great too. We used the full kitchen everyday, the living room was spacious, and even the bed was comfortable.

We will definitely be back - Thanks so much!
