My Mom and I love the Whaler and wouldn't go anywhere else...we had a lot of storm days this trip but the condo is so comfortable and Whalers Village so close we were fine. The sun came out and I was greeted at the beach by Andrew who asked if I would like to rent a lounge for the day....he...

We just returned home from the Whaler.The location is great, close to Black rock, Whaler village, on the boardwalk, close to the bus top that runs every hour into town. We rented 3 rooms and each was a bit different. We went thru a travel agent who booked thru Aston. Our room was 915-one room with an updated stainless steel...

Aloha – Your review points out one of the most obvious challenges of renting individually owned condominiums. The great thing is reviews like yours help fuel the talk of unit improvements. Our goal as a management team is to assist owners in being aware of what a guest expectation is when they come to Maui and more importantly to The...

My wife and I stayed in this 2 bedroom 2 bath unit on our 34th anniversary trip to Maui. In one word EXTRAORDINARY! The entire staff were fantastic as well. I believe these units are individually owned so I can't vouch for the other units. We will return next year and will look to book this unit. We didn't want...

Rent through individual owners (research these condos well), but NOT through Aston. What you get from Aston is a total gamble on room quality and rude, lying, uncaring desk staff. If you want to gamble with your vacation- go to VEGAS. We like the Whaler location. However, EVERY CONDO IS DIFFERENT because they have individual owners. So the only way...

Aloha – Dear guests, an apology is certainly in order because no one should ever feel they were lied too or mistreated. So please accept our sincerest acknowledgement that we could have done better. With this said, I am not certain this is the best advice to rent only from owners. The truth is the entire ownership at the Whaler...

We loved our studio unit right on the ocean. Views are breath taking! Staff was so helpful and kind. We loved the closeness to whalers village for an easy place to eat and shop.

We simply love the Whaler. We stayed last December to get away from the cold weather at home, and have already booked again for next month! It is very reasonably priced. The reviews pretty much say it all: Lovely grounds to wander about and enjoy the solitude (they use battery operated weed wackers and other quiet equipment, which in itself...
