We love this property for it's proximity to Ka'anapali Beach snorkeling and the ocean views! The pool is pretty quite but right along the boardwalk which makes for decent people watching. Convenient to beach

This is an excellent property and the location could not be better. It is conveniently located right next to Whalers village (1 minute walk), and a short 5 minute stroll up to Blackrock. 5 Minutes from Lahina as well. Our room (864) was well appointed and looked to be

This property has a fantastic location- the best part was being able to walk a few steps to the beach and all the restaurants The rooms are outdated but we didn't spend much time there so it didn't matter so much

Aloha Angela, Thank you so much for your review and noting the fact The Whaler enjoys a "fantastic location." We could not agree more. I am concerned about your comment regarding your room and would appreciate the opportunity to discuss your perceptions further. A vast majority of our rooms have been tastefully updated with modern appliances and offer all the conveniences of home. Having said that, the condominiums are individually owned and reflect their owner's preference of décor, and I would like to share your feedback if you would care to comment further. My contact information is below, and again, thank you for your review. Best Regards, Scott 808.661.6000 scott.obley@aqua-aston.com

Beautiful beach! Great location! Lots of turtles out in the front of the condo. Steps away from great bars and eating places. We think we have found our spot for year after year. The shuttle bus that picks you up in front of the whalers village is very convenient to go to the

Our condo was on the front side away from the beach. But it had a large balcony, with tables and chairs, and the could be viewed from there. Regardless, you are just a few hundred feet from the beach itself. My wife is gluten intolerant, but says most of the restaurants we went to had Asian style cuisine which offers many dishes that are gluten free, so it was not a problem A nearby restaurant named STAR NOODLE has exceptional food. It can be crowded so reservations are recommended.

Yes. The apartment was cleaned (including vacuuming and kitchen) every day. Some American friends advised us to put one or two dollars on the pillows on our beds each morning as a tip. We did so, and were well taken care of.
