Our experience at 'The Whaler' was just too good! We booked an ocean view room and it was totally worth it. There was a lovely balcony with a nice view of the ocean (even though it's not ocean front and rather from the side of the building the view was still amazing). The condition of the property itself was really...

What a beautiful place to recharge - every aspect of our stay there was fabulous. The condo was almost too beautiful as staying in was such a joy it slowed us getting out onto the gorgeous beach. Close but not too close to town with great shops right next door.
