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. As we are right on the beach we occasionally do get vermin in the villas. We do not like to use poisons due to the risk... More

As part of our WA break we elected to stay in Dunsborough for four nights. Whalers Cove Villas had a very attractive winter offer of four nights for the price of three. Dunsborough is an ideal base for exploring the Geographe region and the Margaret River region of WA. Dunsoborough is just over 40km from the town of Margaret River.... More

Had an opportunity to stay in one of the villas here during a visit to South West Australia a year ago. The beach is just a short walk and all the attractions of the area just a short drive away. Villas are well maintained and clean and beds comfortable. Really relaxing holiday and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. Will... More

Thank you for your positive review of Whalers Cove. May is a great month to come to the Margaret River Region as the weather is cooling down a little and most of our villas have wood fires which make it warm and cozy. We hope to see you again soon. More

A BIG thank you for the lovely hospitality over our wedding weekend. We had a gorgeous weekend and were really impressed with Whalers but in particular how friendly everyone was. Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you next year on our anniversary :-)

We were so pleased that you were able to have your wedding ceremony at the front of our resort on the beach. To be able to walk out of Villa L'Harmone and through to the beach is a perfect setting for your special day. We look forward to seeing you again next year for your anniversary. More

Thank you for the great review. There are a few rocks on the beach which are great for little ones to explore and look for crabs etc but every now and then a little foot does get cut.

We've thoroughly enjoyed staying at Whalers on a number of occasions in the past. This summer, however, we have been extremely disappointed. The usually friendly managers were quite uninterested, short and, at times, rude. Our villa was very poorly presented upon our arrival, smelling stuffy and stale, with fruit remains left on the floor. A number of the door latches... More
