This condo is an excellent place to stay in Maui and is located on a great resort on an amazing beach. Communication with the owner was easy, friendly and informative. The front desk and concierge services were outstanding. The staff was kind and helpful. The swimming pool was more than adequate. The beach activities center was staffed with very helpful people who helped to make our vacation one we will remember for a lifetime. While some of the furniture/appliances in the condo were somewhat basic, we were not at all disappointed by any of it. And the location is unbelievable...completely unbelievable.
I can't say enough about the beach located directly in front of this property. From this condo, you can walk out the back door, sit on the lanai and watch the waves and birds. From the front door of the condo, the beach is about a 45 second walk. The sand is beautiful. There is plenty of space, even in the middle of summer. The water is very clear for snorkeling or diving. Black Rock (one of the main snorkeling spots) is only a few minutes walk down the beach (or you can swim there if you are feeling up for some exercise). The beach activities center has towels, snorkeling equipment, chairs, umbrellas, cabanas, etc. They can also answer questions about and set you up with parasailing, day or evening cruises, and other beach activities. The pool felt busy at certain times of day, but the beach in front of this resort never felt crowded-even when it was busy.
Again, an excellent place to stay with an owner that is very friendly and easy to work with. We stayed here for our wedding anniversary and have every intention of coming back. We plan to stay in this condo every time we come to Maui from now on. It was the vacation of our dreams.

“Best beach on Maui, and perfectly located and provisioned apartment.”

We flew into Kapalua airport which is only 5/10 minutes away by taxi. The airport is tiny, primitive but fine. Reception at the Whaler were most helpful, courteous and efficient. The room is the perfect size for a couple. We enjoyed being on the ground floor, with the verandah (lanai) opening onto a lush, private, grassy area. We enjoyed sitting there to have meals, and look out at the trees and towards the sea and Molokai. The bed is comfortable and all the facilities work well. No jug to boil water. The shower knob was a challenge, but I figured out that you have to pull it out to get water! You Americans are probably used to that type. And to save you searching, the pots and pans are to be found in the lower oven drawer! My wife says she didn't go for the plastic flowers. She's right, but if that's the worst thing about the unit, you know it is pretty darned good! A lovely apartment in a superb location. Whalers Village right next door gives you great convenience for a beer and a meal. Snorkelling at Black Rock is a short walk down the beach. Swam with a lovely Green Turtle there. Larry, thanks for a great stay.
