I can't think of a more relaxing place to chill by the pool right on the ocean. Secluded and restful but close to everything that makes Hawaii Hawaii. I love this place! Sea turtles, whales, and double rainbows. I can't wait to return!

Hotel's Favorite
Fortunate enough to spend one night in this beautiful, roomy and luxury condo resort. Felt like royalty amidst the beautiful condo, tropical landscaping and the exceptional oceanside view. The condo is roomy (we had a 2 bedroom) and perfectly set up to enjoy everything Kauai has to offer and also includes full kitchen facilities if one is inclined to eat in. The property has a beautful pool and is nearby (within walking distance or easy drive) to nearby beaches. We can't wait to return and enjoy Whalers Cove for a longer holiday! Thanks so much Marianne for giving us a glimpse of paradise.

The only place I stay when visiting Kauai. Amazing place the ocean sounds rock you to sleep. Great friendly staff. Been coming here for over 10 years. Always very sad to leave. If you are looking for a quiet and restful stay and to enjoy the island look no further. I am not a fan of big hotels resorts and lots of noise. Plus this area in Koloa has the best weather. Lots to do or not do. The breeze is enough to keep you comfortable as no ac. Close enough to lots of scuba diving, amazing restaurants and a farmers market on wed. Best to get the booking from whalers cove.

Absolutely LOVE this place. Well maintained property and the most friendly staff. Property manager Marianne is one of the sweetest people you will ever have the pleasure of meeting. Room 212 has an AMAZING view. My First morning here I got to experience the most beautiful sunrise I’ve ever seen right from my lanai. You can see the spray from the ocean hitting the rocks. Great view of the cove and ocean and the pool. View of the moon at night is something else. Lights up the palm trees is a must see. The sunset lights up the sky from east to west ROOM 212 is very spacious and well maintained with a brand new upgraded bathroom with 2 sinks and a huge shower. Beautiful tiles. Great place winter getaway. I WILL BE BACK. LOVE IT

We reserved a one bedroom condo, but were surprised with a two bedroom instead. We had so much space and it was incredible! Huge lanai, full kitchen, beautiful views. The resort was very quiet and comfortable. Access to restaurants and beaches very close to the resort. We were able to see many sea turtles in the cove. The views for sunrise & sunset cannot be beat! This was paradise!

Mahalo GNP! Most of our condos are 2 bedroom, but when their is just 2 people in the party and you only use the 1 bedroom/bathroom, we can charge a 1 bedroom rate. The condos are very large and very popular with 2 couples traveling too! We are so glad you got to see the Honu (sea turtles)! Aloha from Paradise and please share your favorite photos with us if you'd like.
