Good location with a shopping center right next door along with several restaurants that had indoor and outdoor seating. There is a trolley that comes to the shopping center and will take you down to Lahaina's Front...

We loved our stay at the Whaler. It affords a wonderful location on Ka'anapali Beach. Ka'anapali Beach is just lovely. Beautiful water, soft sand at your feet. A little to the right is "Black Rock" a good place to snorkel. You might find yourself swimming next to a sea turtle! The Whaler is next door to Whalers Village. A shopping...
