We stayed here for a few days recently. Well appointed villas, grounds are very well kept. Location is good - close to township. Second time we have stayed here - outdoor areas could be more private, but overall nice place to stay in Dunsborough,

Great to have you back Smartly74. You are right we are well located to town for a leisurely stroll for morning coffee or lunch. Thank you for your compliment regarding the gardens we try very hard to keep them looking fresh. We have been planting a lot more this last year trying to establish some hedges to improve the privacy... More

Mid winter getaway, absolutely gorgeous location. The villa we rented had been recently renovated and did not disappoint. Very clean, contemporary/beach decor, nice linen and towels. Helpful management. Definitely a place we will return to at some stage

The staff were so friendly and the villa number 8 (Pioneer), was exactly like it is in the photos. The kids loved the loft with their own TV. The villa was clean and the beds were comfy enough. Would I stay at Whalers Cove again? The answer is a Big YES!!!!

Booked several houses for a wedding. Very easy to visit other houses but each place is still quiet and secluded. Houses are very neat and tidy and reasonably well equipped for cooking utensils. Would stay here again especially if coming with several families.
