The Whaler Condos on Kaanapali Beach

The Whaler has a central location on Kaanapali Beach, my favorite Maui location.  It is next door to Whalers Village shopping center, and in easy walking distance of resort hotels, restaurants, snorkeling and all beach activities.  Phone 808-661-4861.

The Whaler is a condo building, not a hotel.  So like all condos, its advantages are larger rooms and a complete kitchen, and its disadvantages are less elaborate pools and grounds than a resort hotel.  There are no shops or restaurants in the building, but it is just a couple minutes walk from the numerous shops and restaurants in the Whalers Village shopping center.

The Whaler’s 360 condos (in two 12-story buildings) include studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom (and a few three-bedroom) units.  Built in 1976.  Each unit is individually owned, so furnishings vary widely and some units are kept up better than others.  All units are fully air conditioned, unlike many of Maui’s less expensive condos.  Most rentals are managed by Aston, so you may hear this called the Aston Whaler.

You can get a very good discount (usually 15% off the lowest web rates) on the price to stay at this condo, by going to www.mahambassador.com and signing in with the Ambassador Number MAH206L. Please click here for detailed directions to getting the discount.

For a reasonably priced condo in the middle of activity-filled Kaanapali, the Whaler is a very good choice.  For reviews and photos of other condos on this side of Maui see West Maui condos.
