One bedroom two bath condo was a very good fit for three women traveling together. The unit was large and comfortable. Views off of the lanai are gorgeous. The property is in a perfect location right on the beach and close to all kinds of activities. Snorkeling at black rock (a short walk down the beach) is good. Restaurants in...

Aloha, Yes indeed the one bedroom/two bath units are of great value for the size of the room. I really enjoyed your comment about a nice balance between time in a hotel versus a private home. One recent addition to the Aston rental program is a HD/DVR in each unit. The digital recorder reminds me of my home because I...

Spent hours researching hotel options but was sold by the location and oceanside pool and hot tub. A little nervous about outdated decor but was pleasantly surprised. Yes, there are 70's floor to ceiling mirrors on one wall but we spent most of the time on the lanai (patio) or in bed. Our studio was huge with a beautiful view...

Aloha Oe, Thank you for choosing us during your vacation time. A quick story: three years ago when I began to manage the units for Aston I was a little nervous too. Having been a part of a five-star/diamond hotel, I recognized the challenge of various unit interiors. Today I give my team tremendous credit for their dedication and focus...

We had such an amazing time celebrating our Honeymoon on Maui and definitely chose the right place to stay. This unit, #365, is better than advertised; 5-star luxury all of the way! From the moment I booked the unit, the owner was fantastic, sending me recommendations for restaurants, activities, luau's, shopping, etc. When we arrived on Maui, we could not...

We checked in on September 25 and was given a room in Tower 1 with a view of the parking lot, although we prepaid for an oceanview room. Perhaps I should have just stayed there because the room I was given on the fourth floor (407) had a great view but the room was dated and had rust around bathroom...

Aloha – Thank you so much for the review and more importantly voting. The Whaler is the best location. We love the condo experience too. There are differences in rooms so be certain to make sure the program (Aston) or outside realty company or VRBO maintain high standards of cleaning and unit furnishings.
