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 mid-century 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 and a short drive to the town of Lahaina.
This is the best location on Kannapali. I was very disappointed with the check in and check out experience. We rented a two bedroom for 10 days and then a studio PREMIUM for two weeks. We were told the process of moving units would be easy - it was anything but easy! I spent most of the day trying to get us into a unit that was considered PREMIUM, only to be "upgraded" to a one bedroom - not PREMIUM because there was not another studio PREMIUM available. Be sure to get what you are paying a PREMIUM price for!
Peaceful and beautiful
Beautiful area with a view of Lanai. So gorgeous and we watched the whales from our balcony. Very nice condo and free laundry. You do have to rent beach chairs to be directly on the beach. Short walk to black rock and great snorkeling. Whalers village is right there for some great dining experiences. Great views of west Maui mountains. Loved our stay here..
First of all we decided to travel before all the Covid-19 Pandemic happened so a couple of days into our trip they started to close down all restaurants, tours, activities, pools etc.
But despite all the closures we would not change anything as Mr Rudolphs condo was one of best places we have stayed. The view every morning and night was alone was worth it as we saw whales and beautiful sunsets. The condo itself was in the best location right in the middle of Kaanapali Beach with all amenities around it including restaurants and shopping. The condo was well stocked with all you would need and the chairs, coolers, flippers and boogie boards were very appreciated as we had a blast on the beach with the waves. Black rock was great for snorkelling and we saw many fish and turtles.
Like i said, without the pandemic getting in the way of our holiday it would of been perfect, but we spent time on the beach, BBQing food we got from Lahania Safeway which was a $2.00 , 5 minute bus ride, easy peasy.
Location location location they say and you cant get better than Mr Rudolphs condo, he was so pleasant to deal with even calling us to check up on us as i kept updating him on the closures and policies that were in place due to Covid-19 and he always answered the emails quickly.
The condo was full of kitchen, bathroom , cleaning and laundry supplies that left us wanting or needing nothing.
Thank you Mr Rudolph, your place is amazing and we do hope to come back again so we can experience all that Kaanapali Beach has to offer. Highly recommend this condo....highly recommend.
Roaches in unit #824
My wife and I have stayed at the whaler previously with a group that were in three different units (not unit 824). We all enjoyed our stay so we decided to go back and booked #824. The unit itself is updated and nice but when you open the door and see roaches it takes away from everything else. We contacted the owner ans he was able to schedule an exterminator but it was on our fourth day there. Every morning we would kill s few more but I could see gaps in the wall behind the fridge. I advised the owner of this and he admitted the they crawl from floor to floor on pipes. SEAL THE PIPES! We like the Whaler but will stay in a different unit next time. On our previous trip we stayed in unit #312 and it was excellent.
Great place to stay
One problem was we were on the 10th floor and getting hot water was always a several minute wait. Other than that I wouldn't change a thing. A great place to stay, right on the beach and Whalers Village is just a short walk.
