Our family stayed at Whaler's Cove for 5 days around July 4th. It was just wonderful! The property is beautiful- very well maintained with lovely gardens. Marianne and the Whaler's Cove Office staff were so welcoming and helpful. The views from the pool and the lawn are gorgeous - especially around sunset. Our condo unit was perfect for us. The...

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon and when people asked about our trip to Hawaii, we both said this was our favorite part. The staff was kind and helpful. The resort is located in a neighborhood and is very quiet, peaceful, and relaxing. Our condo was huge and faced the ocean, and we loved every second. You... More

This is the most amazing oceanfront apartment that we have ever stayed in. My wife and I stayed here 4 nights while she attended a conference at the nearby Grand Hyatt . We had previously stayed here many years ago and were not sure if the place would be as good as it had been. It was just as good... More

What a beautiful condo! We stayed in #117 which has a 270 degree view from its lanai of the Poipu coastline. This condo is beautifully furnished and decorated with Koa wood and Hawaiian accents. Wow! We spent nine days there and can hardly wait to return! Thirty feet from our lanai, the ocean was crashing upon the lava boulders providing... More

First time stay at Whalers Cove and it was amazing. I spent hours searching for condos on Kauai and found great reviews of Whalers Cove so booked a condo, and we totally loved it. We stayed in unit #122 and it was amazing. Spacious, well decorated, and the views were amazing. I was a little apprehensive as the photos I... More

When we arrived at whalers cove the first thing that struck me was the view. The uninterrupted wide view of the sea was fantastic. The apartment itself was great. we had our 2 and 4 year olds with us and it was perfectly safe and appropriate for them. Big kitchen means I could prepare food for them if we decided... More

I've stayed at the Whalers Cove three times and keep coming back because it is so perfect. The location is wonderful in Poipu which is in the "sunny" southern part of Kauai. From the Whalers Cove, you can walk to the Shops at Kului'ula for a nice meal (try The Dolphin if you like Japanese food) or shopping (the Malie... More

Spent two glorious weeks at Whalers Cove Building One right on the ocean. Easily the most beautiful place I've ever been. The room was well furnished, deck spacious and the sound of the waves drowns out all cares. Great service from staff from Manager Marianne Martin right down to the groundskeepers who make resort feel like a mini Hyatt Regency.... More

We are a family of four and stayed in room 133. We had a fantastic time. We would highly recommend this resort. Our condo was very clean and comfortable. We spent almost every day at the beach as it close to the resort. Cant wait to go back.

My husband and I had reserved a private home with a pool in poipu for the last week of our vacation.
