This is one of the best places that we have stayed on the 3 islands that we have visited. We were here last year, and not only was the room equally as great, our room this year was even close to the ocean. The staff is still among the very best when it comes to professionalism and friendliness. They really...

The Whaler is a beautiful set of condominiums on the north end of Kaanapali Beach. We stayed for a week in a 1-bedroom 2 bathroom ocean view unit. Our stay exceeded our expectations by far. It is a wonderful place to relax. We reserved through the website and requested the highest floor possible and best view possible. We got both!...

My husband and I had the most relaxing 10 days in Maui staying here. Just steps to the beach and within driving distance of Maui's other beaches, historical landmarks and adventures. A comfortable, homey condo apartment with a beautiful lanai greeted us. The front desk allowed us to view a variety of rooms and views and we decided to upgrade....

I stayed at Aston Whaler Ka'anapali for 8 nights in July 2013 and have pretty much only good things to say about it.

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
