Location can't be beat. Unit 137 was two levels with bedroom upstairs and this got to be tedious for the long stay. The condo had less than sterling maintenence with almost half of the windows not working well, if at all. With no air conditioning it's hard to keep the place comfortable at times if windows can't be easily opened....

Aloha and Mahalo for sharing your thoughts. On behalf of the staff, we want to thank you for choosing Whalers Cove as your island retreat! It's Wednesday, time to walk up to the Gourmet Farmer's Market at Kukui'ula Shopping Center! I see a slice of pie in my very near future!

We had a 2 bedroom condo on the 2nd floor. We were overlooking the pool and also had an amazing view of the ocean. There isn't a bad room here. All rooms have some ocean view. We had a fully equipped kitchen. The condo itself was very nice. Plenty of room for the 5 of us. There isn't air conditioning...

We rented a 2 bedroom 2 bath condo at Whalers Cove and it was amazing! There wasn't a single complaint! We loved everything about it! Due to plane issues, we missed our first night at the resort, but they were so sweet and left us a note with a welcome basket. I highly recommend staying here! The turtles in the...

Amazing Oceanfront Condos, particularly Unit #120. This is possibly one of the best properties we have stayed at to date! There is a pool and hot tub outside, amazing landscaping, and plenty of restaurants and stores nearby within walking distance.

The views are amazing all day long. We saw turtles, whales, and dolphins multiple times. The condo is very large. The staff is very helpful and the pool is beautiful. We loved it here. My family of 4 (2 teen boys) had a great stay. It was private and quiet but close to everything to have adventures. I do wish...

Aloha and Mahalo for your feedback! The boys will continue to grow, perhaps next time you might like to book our Kaikala Penthouse? It has 3 bedrooms, 2 king beds and an extra double bed in the 3rd bedroom. We look forward to having you back.

Whaler's Cove is absolute perfection. Spectacular views of the ocean, and falling asleep to the sound of the waves at night. Spacious units with quality finishes and furnishings. A great private pool area with a view of Koloa Landing. Baby Beach is a 5 minute walk away (if you're realllly taking your time). Easy walk to the Shops at Kukui'ula...

Whalers Cove is an incredible place. Quiet and calm, so you don't feel like you are in a large hotel, and close to everything you need (if you must leave). We have stayed in unit 233 several times and it keeps getting better. Where to start... The condo has 2 Master Suites upstairs: one on the mountain side where you...
