We loved staying here. We had a full kitchen to use which was great. We found a supermarket in Lahaina and cooked a lot of meals in our room. Big spacious rooms, like an apartment not a hotel room. Right next to the Whalers village and an amazing view of the beach. We had beach access for a swim everyday....

We found Donna Bender by accident searching the internet! So glad we did. I was very hesitant to use someone I did not know and she turned out to be a lifetime vacation agent/partner! She handled everything, we gave her our specific requests, like it must be ocean front and have a King bed with two baths. She wasted no...

My husband and I were at the Whaler from October 9-19th. (We did not rent from an owner – we booked through our travel agent.) We had a wonderful time. Marissa checked us in to room 1160 in Tower 2 facing the ocean/courtyard. She was so nice and helpful. Fred took our luggage to our room and gave us the...

I did a lot of research, and I ended up renting from the owner of unit#264. It was a very easy, pleasant transaction. This particular unit is a studio located near the elevator (but you couldn't hear the elevator or people in the hall) with a very comfortable king bed, couch, dining table, and two chairs. Even though the couch...

We had booked the Hyatt but due to construction changed to Aston. We absolutely loved this property, it has a lovely feel not to massive. Our studio was lovely, the internet pictures don't actually do justice to the rooms, our room was beautiful with lovely view of pool & ocean. The hotel being right next to Whalers Shopping Village is...

Aloha Nui, Thank you for sharing your love for the property. To be honest, we feel the same way about our role servicing our guests and the property. We love it too!

One bedroom two bath condo was a very good fit for three women traveling together. The unit was large and comfortable. Views off of the lanai are gorgeous. The property is in a perfect location right on the beach and close to all kinds of activities. Snorkeling at black rock (a short walk down the beach) is good. Restaurants in...

Aloha, Yes indeed the one bedroom/two bath units are of great value for the size of the room. I really enjoyed your comment about a nice balance between time in a hotel versus a private home. One recent addition to the Aston rental program is a HD/DVR in each unit. The digital recorder reminds me of my home because I...

Spent hours researching hotel options but was sold by the location and oceanside pool and hot tub. A little nervous about outdated decor but was pleasantly surprised. Yes, there are 70's floor to ceiling mirrors on one wall but we spent most of the time on the lanai (patio) or in bed. Our studio was huge with a beautiful view...

Aloha Oe, Thank you for choosing us during your vacation time. A quick story: three years ago when I began to manage the units for Aston I was a little nervous too. Having been a part of a five-star/diamond hotel, I recognized the challenge of various unit interiors. Today I give my team tremendous credit for their dedication and focus...

We had such an amazing time celebrating our Honeymoon on Maui and definitely chose the right place to stay. This unit, #365, is better than advertised; 5-star luxury all of the way!
