“Awesome stay in paradise” Gorgeous time in condo with fantastic location and owner. Just south of Napili/north of all the big hotels (such as Sheratin, Westin etc). Quiet, very well kept,roomy for 4, vista with memorable sunsets and turquoise bathtub waters including green turtle sightings by the dozen and snorkeling better than the iconic trip to Molokini. A 3 minute walk south along the rock fronted condo features a small sandy beach for boogey boarding, snorkeling, and relaxing in the 78 degreee water. Don saved us money with car rental and food shopping suggestions. With the condo, you get quiet, a swimming pool when you are tired of the beach (can you imagine?!) and memorable sunsets each night. The condo itself is very clean, has wi fii, and all the amenities. Due to the stairs, I would not recommend for people with severe mobility issues. If you want to visit the big hotels (see the parrots and artificial waterfalls at the Westin) or watch people diving off of Black Rock, park just south of the condo at the Whalers Market shopping center and buy a towel in order to validate your $15.00 parking. After seeing the hordes on Kaanapali beach, you will be so happy to sip a cool one back at the condo. Boss Frog's shop to rent prescription or regular masks, snorkels, and fins (plus underwater cameras) is 5 min away at the Napili shopping center. The marine reserve is 10 minutes up the road for great snorkeling as well. The town of Lahina is a 15-20 minute drive south. We had intended to do more during our stay but found that we were so content to sit and enjoy our hideaway and everything in the surrounds that all the other stuff (such as the trip to Hana) will have to come on our next trip, which we will certainly book to stay again in # 202. Great owner, great holiday. Can't wait to return!
“Whales and turtles from the lanai” Had a fantastic relaxing time at sunset shores. An older condo, but kept up very nicely. Well appointed kitchen, beach towels, beach chairs, coolers and umbrellas. Easy parking. And a nice West Maui location. Helpful owner. But the real star is the view. Easy to while away hours on the lanai sipping cocktails and watching the whales go by. Truly spectacular. I almost hesitate giving this review for fear that it will be harder to book in future years. Really nice place.
“Relaxing” This newly renovated unit was perfect. The 2nd floor location was very convenient, we rarely used the elevator. We have stayed at The Whaler for the last 25 years in February. We continue to stay at The Whaler because of the location, everything is very convenient, the beach is just outside the doors, restaurants and shopping next door. Our stay at was wonderfully relaxing.
