We have been staying at Whaler's Cove Villas for the last 8 Years, normally once or twice a year. It is perfect for long winter weekends down south. Superbly located, it is a great launching point for visiting wineries and restaurants in the South West. We have stayed in about 5 different villas so far, all have been clean and... More

Wow - you have said it all. Thank you very much for the most generous review. Our repeat guests are approximately 20% of our business and we enjoy meeting up with our regulars and catching up with their news and in most cases seeing how much the kids have grown! Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you soon! More

We've been staying at Whalers cove for the past five years returning a couple of times during school holidays a year. With three kids under ten it's the perfect base from which to hang out at the beach, explore geographe bay, visit one of the many attractions available close by for kids and create memories of beach holidays forever.

We have been staying at Whalers regularly for 8 years. The spacious villas comfortably accommodate my family and friends and we never want to go home when the time comes to leave.

Me and my wife were with friends for a wedding down South and stayed at Whalers for 2 nights in Oct 2014, we were really surprised at how nice the place was as, everything was clean and we were a stones throw from the beach. We are already looking to make plans to come back again.

Spent five nights in Koskorora with my daughter and young grandaughters. The unit was extremely well equipped and all our needs were well met.

All of our villas are designed and individually furnished and the best option for travellers is to visit our web... More

I write this review from the comfort of my leather couch in front of the fire in my gorgeous villa. This place from the moment you arrive gives you that AAAAAHHHHHHHH feeling.

Thanks you so much for taking the time to review Whalers Cove and in particular Villa Pioneer. One of our greatest assets is that the resort is very child friendly and we encourage families to come and stay. With the private gardens and being on the beach with no roads to cross makes us a safe haven. We are pleased... More

Whalers Cove Villas are in a great location, opposite the beach and within easy walking to the Dunsborough shopping centre. We stayed in the Hibernia Villa and it was decorated lavishly and was beautifully presented. The living area is huge with both an open fire and reverse cycle air conditioning and we could not have been more comfortable. We will... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Whalers Cove and we do apologise that we did not live up to the standards that the majority of the reviewers at Trip Advisor talk about.
