This unit is a privately owned luxury condo in the condo-hotel, The Whaler, right on Kaanapali Beach. It is beautifully remodeled and an absolutely gorgeous paradise retreat! This first floor 1 bed/2 bathroom condo sleeps 4. King bed and king sofa sleeper.
The walk-out aspect of this condo makes it super unique…you're literally just steps from the ocean and beach! The grassy area off the lanai is great for lounging or playing! The condo is located on the sunny side of the building - it gets gorgeous light in the mornings :)
Guests have access to the condo, pool, hot tub, ocean :) Also, the whaler's fitness center.
Please be aware that there is a $15/day convenience fee, not included in your booking on Airbnb, which will be paid directly to The Whaler at check in. This fee covers parking, pool and hot tub access, chair and cabana use, and bottomless clean and fluffy beach towels :)
Interaction with guests
Please don't hesitate to contact me during your stay - I'm happy to help with any questions you may have. I am located in Denver, so I am on MST, so please consider that when anticipating a response :)
Other things to note
Really fun things to do during your stay:
- Feed the fish at the koi pond, every morning at 8:30am!
- Pop by Longhi's in Lahaina for breakfast…enjoy a delicious cinnamon roll or their house made frittata or quiche.
- Happy Hour at Leilani's - try the fish tacos, with a dessert of Hula Pie if you have room...
- Book a catamaran trip…leave right from Kaanapali Beach! Great for snorkeling, sunset cruises, or whale watching! We love The Hula Girl!
- The Pacific Whale Foundation also has great biologist-led whale watches
- If you have a car, head to Paia and check out the galleries and shops. Or drive the Road to Hana!
- If you have a baby (or small kiddo) head to Baby Beach, off Mala Boat Ramp in Lahaina. Perfect beach for kiddos, no surf break and shallow for quite a ways out!
- Catch the nightly tiki-torch lighting and cliff diver at Black Rock, just before sunset.
- Snorkle at Kapalua Bay, or Black Rock, keep your eyes peeled for honu (sea turtles).
- Enjoy shave ice from Ulalanis...the most delicious and legit shave ice, in our opinion ;) Several locations!
- Visit the aquarium, The Maui Ocean Center! The shark tank is so cool!
