"Far exceeded my expectations "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 11, 2020 NEW
Our family of 4 (my husband and my in laws) just completed a wonderful 6 night stay at the Whaler. We stayed in 2 premium studio units with ocean view on 4th and 6th floors booked via Aston. I was a little hesitant booking a condo over a resort property as I was unsure of the level of service and ambiance. However, my expectations were far exceeded starting at moment of arrival. We had a lovely greeting with a shell necklace - something that not all properties (even resorts) do. Both units were incredibly clean and I was surprised with the check in call from Aston the morning of our first whole day to make sure we didn’t have any issues. Even though our room was near the elevators on the 6th floor I found it incredibly quiet both day and night. The overall ambiance of the property was great, including the meticulously cared for grounds were impressive. Aston staff was consistently caring for the property and were always friendly and helpful. Given that we were there during Christmas season we didn’t use the pool as it was a little busy, but there was no need with the ocean directly in front. My in laws were in love with the location - they walked to Whaler’s Village daily (maybe 2x daily) and nothing beats a 2 minute walk to great restaurants such as Hula’s and Monkey Pod. Thank you to the Aston staff for making this a wonderful vacation right from the ease of booking and then throughout our stay. I know we will return again. Mahalo.

"Large condo, great kitchen, Great location though outdated furnishings and lacking hotel amenities"

Prior to staying here we stayed at a Marriott vacation village on Kona. And we got spoiled there. We both miss hotel amenities, pool people who will put up umbrellas, etc. Our condo here is very dated. We don’t open doors due to allergies but we met person who was here right before us and he told us he changed condos since noise from bar next door went on all night long. Great location..... but....

We stayed at the Whaler for 11 days in December 2019. The property is wonderful. It has a beautiful beach in front of the two tower condo buildings that is big, much bigger than some of the hotels further south. The pool and hot tub are fabulous. Check in and check out were a breeze. We stayed in a unit on the 9th floor in tower 2 directly under the Hula Grill on the south facing side. It was very nice, but the smoke from the Hula Grill can be a throat irritant at times. Personally I think I would look to book the south side of Tower 1 if I stay here again. The south side of both buildings gets the sun with nice sunrises and sunsets. The north sides of tower 1 & 2 don’t get the sun. I think it’s important to understand that when booking. I did see some people walking the beach at times, but in my opinion the 1 mile stretch of beach is not really a walking beach because it’s not flat. Others might disagree. There is a wonderful sidewalk that fronts the beach all along that 1 mile which is great for walking however. Booking a unit with a washer and dryer was very helpful.

"Thanksgiving on Maui"

Reviewed December 14, 2019
This was the 1st year my husband and I traveled away from home/family for a holiday and it was well worth it! The staff at The Whaler treat you like family and are very accommodating to your requests. I would recommend paying a little extra for an ocean front room. We had a corner unit in Tower 1 which meant we had two really long patios. One that faced the ocean and the other had ocean and mountain views. Walking distance to Whaler Village is really nice because it was a quick trip to the ABC store to buy all of the little things you forgot or just have to have. Also, there are some pretty amazing restaurants in there. Beach access was spectacular and our condo had beach chairs and an umbrella for us to use. The pool area is smaller than I expected so it was a little difficult to find a chair in there on some days. The kitchen was top of the line and had everything we needed. We also made use of the grills down by the beach and learned they are cleaned every day. They were always spotless! Did I mention the 70" flatscreen we had?! We are already discussing making plans to go back again next Thanksgiving!

"First trip to Hawaii, good condo, best beach, should've listened to friend's advice tho..."
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5

Serendipitously, our friends have direct-owner-rentals in bldg 1 overlooking the court yard in between the two towers. We were too frazzled trying to figure it all out (lack of mental capacity due to crazy months of work) and went to a travel agent, which got us a slightly better price b/c of their purchasing discount, but we didn't have control over the room location. Our friends suggested calling the Whaler's 1-800 number and requesting Bld 1 (b/c updated furnishings compared to 2) and overlooking courtyard, but we procrastinated and called too late. We landed in Bldg 2, not overlooking the courtyard (which would have been prettier), but west facing over the whaler village which was still incredibly nice. We were on the 8th floor and I'd recommend fl 8 or higher for ocean views! Bring a bit of tinfoil, saran wrap, maybe a lockable tupperware container for food, as these aren't provided, but virtually everything else is. Also bring good thermal water bottles that you can pack with ice from your room and add ice tea or water from the lobby to keep hydrated - it'll save you buying bottles of it over and over. OUR ROOM: 865 BEST ADVICE - don't do bldg 1 east view, your ocean sights are impeded. IN SEQUENCE, TRY - bldg 1 west side overlooking courtyard, then Bldg 2 east overlooking courtyard, then Bldg 2 west side overlooking whaler's village. In all, 8th floor or higher. The studio apt. was well appointed, the bed awesome, they had dishwasher/sink/laundry soap provided. Balcony was lovely. Shower walk-in. Safe in large walk-in closet. The room was ideal for 2 adults, and I could see it being fine for an additional child too b/c seating is for 4 and room is large to accommodate. Safeway is 10 minutes down the road - buy food and bring it back by catching the public transit next door at Whaler Village for $2 to Lahaina, which you must plan to visit. They have neat touristy shops (prices differ per - so compare), an outlet mall, and a really neat boardwalk area with great architecture, scenery, eateries overlooking the water, and the banyan tree is actually worth the visit. We are planning to do a full day-trip to Hana (everyone advises start early - 7 ish - and plan a full day for a sunset there). Also, the Old Lahaina was the luau we wanted to go see, but plan ahead and book early. Instead, we could get into Drums of the Pacific which is bigger, less authentic, but fine for first-timers like us I'm sure. We did a lot of research on luau's and snorkeling excursions. To save money we considered just renting on the beach by Black Rock, but to ensure we make the most of our time, booked a morning trip with Magic Merman. It was cheaper to book Magic Merman for the snorkel through Expedia than their own website, btw, b/c no booking fees. Look for ABC in Whaler's Village for snacks or convenience food stuff, even liquor. The first time we needed to forage for food, I could only find a seafood burger and fries for $25 and it was meh. The next day I found ABC and could have gotten snacks, fresh fruit, sandwiches and the sort there for pennies, comparatively. I have issue with paying $25 for a boogie board that I can't fit in my luggage and would have to leave behind after a day or two of use, but what I found is that there's many who do, then just discard perfectly good ones on the beach come sun down, so we snagged two and enjoyed the day on them and will gift them to others when we leave. We also brought a decent beach mat with us and that worked great on the beach without needing to rent chairs. We also brought a small collapsible 6 can cooler that with ice, allows you to bring snacks or lunch with you to the beach or on the road to Hana, or to keep groceries cool when travelling to/from Ka'anapali. For a first time visit, I would repeat every single minute. I've traveled over 20 countries and quite extensively through Canada and U.S. (by motorcycle predominately) and I hope to make this a routine visit for us every 2-3 years.
