Our family of had a wonderful time! Great view of the ocean from the condo balcony and great location for snorkeling and swimming.Read More
The condo was quiet and clean. The queen size bed was very comfortable and kitchen had updated appliances. My 18yo and 15yo sons slept on the sofa bed and said they were comfortable. The newish bed situation was the main reason I booked this condo. I cooked most meals in the condo and only had to purchase a small crock pot (that I left) as the condo was sufficiently stocked with basic cookware and utensils, etc. The basics of soap, garbage bags, TP, paper towels and dish soap were very convenient and thoughtful. Bathroom had just enough towels for us four.
Grills were nice and my husband made new friends each time we grilled out. We went to a laundromat mid stay, rather than use the washers and dryers. Take change if you are planning to do laundry. There is no onsite management, so you have to figure out your way round the complex. A wall map of the resort would be nice to see when you walk up. We could hear the ocean from our condo, but could not see it. You can walk across the garden and up the steps to see the ocean. Stay on an upper floor if you want to see the ocean from your condo. There is no air conditioner, but that was not a problem in December. Road noise from the street behind the condo was there but not too noticeable. The location of the condo is really in Napili which is about 20 minutes North of Lahaina. We were always on the go, being so far north was a lot of additional traveling and traffic to and from.
My guys went scuba diving with the manta rays, we all went to the Lahaina Luau, drove up the crater, to Makena State Park and to Hana and beyond. 25 years ago we stayed in Kihei and I loved Kaanapali beach.....which is no longer a beautiful pristine beach.....still a pretty beach but now lined with dozens of resorts. Big beach in Makena State Park is still beautiful and pristine. Our visit was over Christmas and the weather seemed to come in from the Northwest and hang around the mountain right over Napili.
Overall the condo was great. Wish I could pick it up and move it to all of our travel destinations. :-)Read More
My family of 5 stayed here for five nights. We enjoyed every moment! The view is just like in the pictures, very beautiful. The room, the shower and the kitchen are all spacious. No any complaints about the property...Read More
First let’s agree that Maui’s weather is paradise regardless of locale. Now let’s add locale and say, if you want perfect views of the ocean and valley along with a perfect beach, perfect pool, access to the best shopping and restaurants in Kaanapali/Lahaina this is the place! Having alll of that plus room for 6 a double sized condo, with laundry, full kitchen, dishwasher and included extras like beach gear, etc is great. Our family of 4 with two teens found it perfect.
Morning coffee and breakfast for us before 5 mile runs along the beach walk, in either direction, while the teens slept in uninterrupted = perfect for all! Shopping, parking, snorkeling, tennis, beach, pool and hot tub all within a quick walk. Great guest experience, recommended to all, but I hope you don’t so the place is available for us next time!
2nd time to the island and wouldn’t change a thing! Ohana cousins and aloha!Read More
We loved this unit! Lots of space, a great layout, and a great view of the pool and golf courses. Also a short walk to Whaler's Village and all of the Kaanapali beaches. Best of all, a much more reasonable price than staying right on the beach. We would stay here again!Read More
Our family loved unite 510. My husband and I brought our 20 & 21 year old daughters on our first trip to Maui and had a great experience here. The front desk staff was very friendly and loved all the space in the condo for 10 days.
If you love the sound of crashing waves as you sleep, the master bedroom is perfect! I missed that sound when I got home and had to play wave music, I was so attached to that sound after 10 days. The second bedroom was also large, and nice with a private bathroom and king bed. I enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the morning and watching the sky and sea change colors, whales off in the distance, and more than one stunning rainbow. Great memories!Read More
We had the opportunity to stay at The Whaler for 6 days over Christmas in 2018. It was perfect. Getting checked in was easy, parking was included, and it was so close to the beach and restaurants.
The condo itself was large, had a great balcony and was equipped with everything we could possibly need--even chairs to take to the beach! There were large windows that overlooked the ocean and sunset.
I honestly couldn't have been happier with a place to stay while we were in Maui. Staying at The Whaler was definitely one of the highlights of our trip!Read More
We rented the Maalaea Bunyan’s # 409 condo from Maui Beachfront Rentals from Dec. 31-January 9th and we couldn’t have been happier with our experience!
The condo was in a perfect middle of the island location and had a fantastic oceanfront view!
Everything we needed was provided at the condo from beach chairs to coolers, beach towels, and even a beach umbrella! The rental process was very convenient too. We would definitely rent this condo again in the future!!Read More
We rented the Maalaea Bunyan’s # 209 condo from Maui Beachfront Rentals over Xmas and we couldn’t have been happier with our experience in the freshly renovated place! The condo was in a perfect middle of the island location and had a fantastic oceanfront view!
Trips are a breeze from here. We had turtles just in front land whale watching from the balcony. Everything we needed was provided at the condo from beach chairs to coolers, beach towels, and even a beach umbrella! Kids enjoyed fast Wifi and pool.
The rental process was very convenient too. We can recommend and would definitely rent this condo again in the future!Read More
We are a family of 5 adults and 1 baby, and were fortunate to have stayed at the townhouse over xmas. The condo very close to two excellent beaches. it was very nice just to pick up our beach gear and walk across the street for a couple of minutes and be right on the ocean.
Since the baby still takes naps it was wonderful to have the area to sit and enjoy the outdoors while we waited for her to wake up. There was ample room for all of us to spread out. We had a problem with the toaster, and we called and the management had a new one for us the same day. Totally loved having the 2.5 bathrooms, and never ran out of towels, since there was a washer and dryer on the ground floor for our use.
The area is lovely and the townhouse was easy to find and use as a base for our trips. Thank you for sharing your space with us.Read More
Amazing view from the lanai off the master bedroom and living room, with beach, palm trees, stars and moonlight reflecting off the ocean out the guest bedroom window. Well equipped kitchen.
Very uncrowded beach, pool, and kid splash pool with attached hot tub. Roll-away bed worked out great for the 3-year old. Immaculate grounds with fantastic BBQ areas.
We will definitely return!Read More
We love staying at Unit 507 at Lahaina Shores and try to book our 10-day trip every year to Maui at this condo. We love the location of the facility and find everything we need at 507. The view is outstanding and offers us a full spectrum of the islands in every direction, the bay for watching whales and boats approaching and even leaving for early morning fishing ventures. The unit is centrally located in the building and easy access to all of the amenities. Walking the beach in the morning is especially enjoyable. We also love the the walk to the marina and all the shops and restaurants on Front Street are minutes away. We drive as seldom as possible, leaving the car in covered parking below, and walk whenever possible.
Sitting under the Banyan tree next to the marina is always lovely, listening to music or the sound of the birds. Unit 507 provides a very comfortable stay for us, with very lovely surroundings, nicely furnished and quiet when we need to rest from our activities.
Customer service from management is excellent and our needs are always addressed immediately and professionally. We highly recommend staying at Unit 507 and will continue visiting Maui at least once a year. We could stay anywhere on the Island, and choose this location and this unit.
Thanks for all the great service and beauty.Read More
