I stayed at Whalers Cove with my husband and we decided to give the Condo idea a go rather than a resort on this amazing island of Kauai. We rented the Alii Penthouse which was beautifully appointed and is clearly a treasured home by the owners. Everything was there, really well equipped kitchen, we cooked most evenings which was so...

Our first visit to Kauai will not be our last visit. Part of Kauai feels lay back vacationing like in Door County, Wisconsin, a bit of the wholesome family atmosphere. Our well-appointed condo had plenty of spacious for 4 people, even we were only one couple, and did not used the second bedroom. We loved our huge balcony, the groceries... More

Our family of three stayed at Whalers Cove a few years ago and fell in love with this place. The condos are located in a quiet neighborhood on the shore of historic Koloa Landing. We stayed on a third floor oceanfront unit with hardwood floors, large bedrooms and a panoramic view of the ocean that was entrancing. The small pool... More

Beautiful condo! We stayed in unit 125 and loved the million dollar view, the huge bathroom with fabulous shower and wonderful maid service. It was very clean and beautifully decorated! It was private and quiet, which we thoroughly enjoyed. I would say the only 2 things that could have been better was the unit didn't have very good air flow... More

Aloha and Mahalo for your kind words! Next time you visit we have a spice package available at the front desk and the herb garden is very popular, so we will be expanding that! More

If you like a quiet, smaller condo resort, this resort is for you. It is in a residential part of Poipu and has only about thirty units. It is quiet, private, and unassuming. The view is stunning--unobstructed ocean. The pool and grounds are immaculate and uncrowded. The unit (223) was spacious and had a HUGE, very private lanai--room for three... More

Condo #233 is the most furnished condo that my family has ever had the opportunity to visit. The condo has recently had some fantastic updates and the whole complex is beautiful. You can sit on your balcony or relax by the pool to enjoy the sun and amazing ocean views.

After being greeted by a friendly & informative front desk girl we entered the paradise we were looking for....the condo was gorgeous, spacious & immaculate, the grounds were beautiful & the ocean steps away, just beyond the pool. Relaxation set in immediately. It was a sweet oasis to come home to after a day of adventure. As peaceful & secluded... More

We live on Kauai and wanted to take a "staycation" for our 33rd anniversary. There are many hotels and house rentals on Kauai. But we wanted to rent a condo so we'd have more room than a hotel while having the amenities you don't get with a house rental. We chose Whalers Cove Resort because we wanted Poipu and we... More

My husband and I stayed at Whaler's Cove to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. When we entered the condo there was a nice note congratulating us and a basket of goodies that included coffee, nuts, and chocolate!
