It can be thought to find, so have your GPS put. This is an older condo that has been taken care of over the years. The grounds are beautiful, and the scenery is spectacular. Every day you have turtles coming in, and since this is the spot to scuba you will have plenty of human company also. The pool is...

A beautiful and quiet hideaway in paradise, perfect for downtime and rejuvenation. This is a spectacular oceanfront property, all condos face the ocean. With a gorgeous blue pool and jacuzzi bordering the property, you can listen to the surf and the breeze while suntanning by the pool. It's heavenly quiet. The grounds around the pool and property is well-manicured, with...

My husband and I visited Kauai in October for the wedding of a friend. We spent 7 days at Whalers Cove and had a wonderful time. We had been to the island, and had in fact stayed at Whalers Cove many years ago when our children were young. This time, it was just the two of us and other friends...

I can't express how beautiful this property is. There is no doubt that the views are absolutely breath taking. My brother was married on this property in a small but quaint ceremony. We used unit 117 to get ready and the couple stayed there as a honeymoon suite! The unit was gorgeous with ample room and a nice breeze. The...

We just returned from a fabulous 7 night stay at Whaler's Cove unit 121. As far as Whaler's Cove in general......it was the perfect spot for us! We didn't want to stay at a big resort crowded with people. The ocean front is spectacular!! The pool was really nice and we hardly saw anyone else using the pool so it...

What a great location and the units were very nice but I agree with other reviewers the complete lack of A/C really surprised us in these days and times with 90 degree days common on Kauai. Our upstairs bedroom was a sauna and pretty much not usable to enjoy the ocean waves even with multiple fans going. The owners notes...

I booked this place last minute after seeing it on my hotels.com app on my phone. I was staying on the North Shore and wanted the Poipu weather for my final couple days in Kauai. I couldn't have been happier or more pleased with this place. Our condo was right on the ocean, and MASSIVE. I also got an excellent...

My husband and I took a 3 week honeymoon to Hawaii. After staying in more crowded areas for the first 2 weeks of our trip (Waikiki, Oahu and North Kaanapali Beach, Maui) we were looking forward to winding down and relaxing in a more private setting.
