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.

Mahalo for your kind words! I will pass your comments on to the owner. They just finished their remodel and put lots of time and energy into making their island home a wonderful retreat for their guests! More

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

Mahalo for the lovely words. Many travel here for the sunrise, sunsets and rainbows. But I am a big fan of the moon and stars! So glad you enjoyed your time here! You are always welcome back! 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! When you walk into the condo you are faced with a stunning view of the ocean from the living room. We also had... More

The grounds are immaculate with some of the nicest orchids you will see anywhere. The complex is quiet and peaceful. We stayed in building one on the second floor. The elevator is great for moving the bags. The views were spectacular, the pool was great and the BBQ area was handy. Within walking distanct to great snorkeling and shopping.We booked... More

My husband and I stayed here for our 30th anniversary and it was amazing. We would definitely recommend it. It is a small oceanfront resort with only 39 units, each individually owned. If you are looking for the a big resort with all the amenities, this may not be for you. No on site restaurant, spa or bar. What it... More

We all fell in love with Whaler's Cove! We always enjoy exploring as much as possible on our travels, so we planned to explore much of the Island of Kauai. However, we felt so at home, from the friendly and helpful staff, to the gorgeous view and Pacific Island breeze, we just wanted to stay back to take in all... More

My wife and I have stayed in Room 135 for a week each of the past two years and it is fantastic! Nothing could be better, really. Great location, modern, clean, elegant, easy access to everything and great walks all around! This spot beats all others we have enjoyed. Look no further. We won't!
