Location of The Whaler and this unit in particular is ideal. This condo is an expanded corner apartment with walk-out to wrap-around patio and beautifully maintained grounds. Parking is three minutes away. Lush palm tree screening (more like bushes) provides excellent privacy. Although it is a rear unit there is an abbreviated view of the ocean. Surf was high during our visit so crashing waves could be heard 24/7. The beach is steps away. This also provides easy access to a paved walking path that stretches the length of the beach to all hotels and Whaler Village shops next store.
There is plenty to do at Kaanapali beach, but it can also be as laid-back as you like. My 21 y.o. son enjoyed the singles scene and cliff diving. My less active husband was delighted to watch an open air Patriots game. Our time also included kayaking, island tours, fishing, Haleakala, shopping, and lounging on the patio with pina coladas .
We had planned this trip as a check-off on the bucket list, but Maui is intoxicatingly beautiful - a fabulous destination! We hope to return.
