Leisure on the Beachfront within Kaanapali Beach Resort
Within Kaanapali Beach Resort and set along the pristine Kaanapali Beach shoreline is Aston at The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach, a condominium resort that exudes leisure and relaxation. Comprised of two 12-story towers on six acres of lush tropical landscaping, guests spend days dipping in the pool, catching sunsets on the beachfront, and unwinding by the fire pits. Other convenient on-site amenities include a jet spa, sauna, fitness center, spa, barbecue grills, tennis court, and concierge. Aston at The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach is just a hop away from Whaler’s Village, world-class golf, and sightseeing on the northwestern coast in Kapalua.
Beware of renting Unit 364, at The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach
I am a long time visitor to Kaanapali and have been renting there every winter since 1993. Throughout this time, I have never had any serious problems until now. In March of 2021, I arranged to rent Unit 364 through the owners of this condo, for my January/ February 2022 trip. I secured this rental with a $2,000 deposit at that time. All of our flight arrangements were made as well.
On November 10, 2020, I reached out to the owners to inquire about when they wished to have the balance owing paid, only to be told that they had double-booked and the condo was no longer available to us. After having my deposit for over 7 months, they did not have the decency to inform me of their decision to double-book. At this late date, it is next to impossible to find another accommodation, as Maui is extremely busy during the high season. The owners were extremely rude and simply said they had put a refund check in the mail ‘a while back’ ! To date, I have not received this check.
I would highly recommend that you not consider dealing with these owners.
Love The Whaler!
We loved staying at The Whaler. Spacious condominium. Convenient location. Service and cleanliness were great. It was important to us to have a kitchen in which to store and re-heat carryout food and to also be able to make toast in the morning. We hope to return to The Whaler very soon.

Amazing hotel, very clean, very friendly and accommodating staff! The hotel is a two minute walk from great restaurants and shops, and sits oceanfront on a beautiful white sand beach! We will definitely be back!
Check in/out was a breeze, friendly staff, beautiful views and walking distance to whalers village for shopping and restaurants! Resort was clean, saw staff cleaning bbq’s and pool areas every morning. Will definitely stay here again! Mahalo!
A great resort that is well maintained. The staff is friendly and very helpful. Enjoyed our time at this beautiful place. Checking in and out was very simple. The pool and spa are well maintained. The rooms especially the ocean view are great. You can walk from your accommodation right to the beach.
Savvy travelers go straight to Costco from the airport to stock up for their visit.
Snorkel, sunset sail, and whale-watching boats load about 100 yards down the beach. You can walk right over to join.
Guests have access to personalized concierge services for assistance with booking tours and activities.
Maui continues efforts to recover after the devastating wildfires that destroyed Lahaina and surrounding areas. If you are preparing for an upcoming trip to Maui, we ask that you extend extra care and compassion to the community due to the recent tragedy. Many activity vendors, restaurants and other attractions in West Maui were either lost entirely or have not resumed operations. Certain areas within the region, including Lahaina Town, remain off-limits. The Maui Now website has a listing of What's Open on Maui to help plan your stay.
