We've stayed at Whalers Cove a number of times and its always our first choice for our holiday in Dunsborough. There is a selection of villas to suit all sizes of party, all pretty much the same layout but each one very different. Sometimes its just our little family, and sometimes we take a friend or two with us. The... More

We stayed at Whalers Cove last weekend as my sister was getting married at nearby Wise Winery. There was a big group of us and I think we took up 8 villas. We were in Lalla Rookh and absolutely loved it as soon as we walked in. We weren't sure what the accommodation was like because my sister had booked... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to review Whalers Cove Villas. Whilst Dunsborough is beautiful in summer it is a great place to visit in winter as well - especially as a number of our villas have wood fires! We look forward to seeing you again soon. More
