We stayed at Whalers Cove Resort for a week, early August 2012. From the moment we walked in to the beautiful apartment and looked out over the grass and rocks to the sea, we felt as if we were really on holiday. It is peaceful, quiet and surrounded by houses, rather than resort tower blocks. Most of the time we had the pool to ourselves and we never heard any noise from other units. The units face the sea and I think face southwest, so apart from a couple of hours in the middle of the day, it's not too hot to lie out in the pleasant breeze. It's possible to swim in the sea off the rocks in the cove, but easier to walk for a few minutes to baby beach or slightly further to a lovely beach and snorkelling area by the Beach House restaurant. There are shops including a whole foods store and restaurants up the road (5-minute walk) and if you organise it in advance, Marianne, the manager, will stock your condominium with some food for when you arrive. It's about a $50 taxi ride from Lihue airport. A great holiday for people who want to relax, swim and enjoy the peace, and a great base for exploring Kauai. We intended to rent a car and drive around a bit, but had such a nice time at Whalers Cove we didn't bother going anywhere else. I am sure we will be back, and as the condo had 2 good bedrooms, we'd also consider going back with another couple.
