We rented a 2 bedroom 2 bath condo at Whalers Cove and it was amazing! There wasn't a single complaint! We loved everything about it! Due to plane issues, we missed our first night at the resort, but they were so sweet and left us a note with a welcome basket. I highly recommend staying here! The turtles in the...

Amazing Oceanfront Condos, particularly Unit #120. This is possibly one of the best properties we have stayed at to date! There is a pool and hot tub outside, amazing landscaping, and plenty of restaurants and stores nearby within walking distance.

The views are amazing all day long. We saw turtles, whales, and dolphins multiple times. The condo is very large. The staff is very helpful and the pool is beautiful. We loved it here. My family of 4 (2 teen boys) had a great stay. It was private and quiet but close to everything to have adventures. I do wish...

Whaler's Cove is absolute perfection. Spectacular views of the ocean, and falling asleep to the sound of the waves at night. Spacious units with quality finishes and furnishings. A great private pool area with a view of Koloa Landing. Baby Beach is a 5 minute walk away (if you're realllly taking your time). Easy walk to the Shops at Kukui'ula...

Whalers Cove is an incredible place. Quiet and calm, so you don't feel like you are in a large hotel, and close to everything you need (if you must leave). We have stayed in unit 233 several times and it keeps getting better. Where to start... The condo has 2 Master Suites upstairs: one on the mountain side where you...

Amazing views!!! Fantastic accommodations!!! Blissful sounds of waves throughout the day and night along with swaying palm trees is a perfect prescription for happiness. What a wonderfully private and quiet escape to Paradise:) ❤️❤️❤️❤️

We were so happy that we were staying at Whaler's Cove on our first visit to Kauai. We were in unit 135. It is very nicely furnished. The entire place is spotless and well run. Daily housekeeping is such a plus in a condominium. We loved being right on the water and seeing the sunsets from our lanai. This is...

We have been coming to Kauai since 2005 and have stayed at Whalers Cove once or twice per year since 2013. Once we “discovered” Whalers Cove it quickly became evident that we couldn’t stay anywhere else on Kauai. We typically stay in unit 117, which is on the ground floor directly on the ocean. The unit is tasteful, elegant and...

I have stayed at Whalers Cove three times in ten years and loved each visit. This is a great resort for couples or families.The accommodations do vary from unit to unit with respect to updates, but all have two bedrooms, two bathrooms with laundry in suite. It is always nice to have a kitchen to make your own breakfasts, snacks...

UNIT # 122 - Not as advertised. The carpets in the bedrooms were extremely dirty and one sofa in the living room was filthy. Bedroom windows and screens were also filthy. The bathroom and kitchen areas were clean and the deck is beautiful. We tried to move to another unit but none were available. No refund policy is very clear...
