Aston's Whaler is centered on the best beach in Hawaii. Great views, landscaping and premium rooms. Our studio had new kitchen and BR, granite counters, glass walk-in shower, great king bed, great pillows and a full view of Lanai. Great for eating in for breakfast and lunch, even some dinners. Ask for unit 413. The place was paradise. Dave S

Collectively our management, unit owners and team members are listening.

We just love our room, there is so much space and the atmosphere is superb. The story is when you go on holiday your room should be nicer than home and this room is certainly beyond our expectations.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I am not sure where the idea came from saying the same word three times in a row; however, in this case, Aston at the Whaler – one of the many benefits is the location, location, location! In addition, several owners have been focused on interior renovations and our premium units are stunning. We...

Flying onto Maui is a breathtaking experience of its own, but arriving at The Whaler completes the best, making it better. The Whaler is a serene resort typical of the island, plenty of tropical foliage and brilliant sunshine it soft blue skies. If that's not enough the condo rented was equal to any top flight resort anywhere. Amenities are based...

I can't say enough about our amazing stay at The Whaler. My first impression as we drove up to the lobby was, "Wow" this is paradise!"

Our experience at 'The Whaler' was just too good! We booked an ocean view room and it was totally worth it. There was a lovely balcony with a nice view of the ocean (even though it's not ocean front and rather from the side of the building the view was still amazing).

What a beautiful place to recharge - every aspect of our stay there was fabulous. The condo was almost too beautiful as staying in was such a joy it slowed us getting out onto the gorgeous beach. Close but not too close to town with great shops right next door.
