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. We didn't quite get what we were looking for... POSITIVES: Gorgeous outdoor property, BREATHTAKING...

Just arrived home in Pittsburgh and my husband and I are still talking about the beautiful Unit 135 at Whalers Cove. We immediately loved all the furnishings -- so much that I want to try to get that couch for my home here in Pittsburgh! The entire unit was done so tastefully. Thank you to the owners for putting so...

We just had fantastic visit to Kauai. My wife Kandi made the arrangements with Whalers Cove and corresponded with Marianne Martin for this process.

Fabulous unit! So close to the ocean, you could almost touch it. Beautifully appointed, all amenities. The staff was extremely helpful, even made restaurant reservations and had beach equipment to lend for free. The pool is gorgeous and everything is extremely clean. Also, the landscaping is captivating. Can't wait to return!

Whalers Cove 210 is an amazing place and my stay was too short. The location is simply fabulous. It’s a place to tune out the world. The unit is well equipped and has everything I could have needed, but the most spectacular thing is that not only do you have an ocean view; you also have direct access from the...

The reviews I've read of Whaler's Cove all seem pretty accurate to me, but adding my opinion as an extra data point. I spent 5 nights at unit 121, which is listed as "ocean view," not "ocean front," so I expected some kind of obscured view of the ocean. That wasn't the case at all. Even though 121 is close...

Rented thru The Parrish Collection, number 134. This is a top floor, ocean front, two bedroom condo. Truly gorgeous inside and out, with a fully appointed kitchen for lovely meals on the lanai. Ocean sounds 24/7 make for a relaxing time. We will definitely return. Brought my sister and brother-in-law for their first time and we are already talking about...

We enjoyed our extended weekend stay at Whalers cove in Mid April 2013. As a party of 3 adults we wanted space for socializing in a group but also allow privacy by having individual bedrooms. At the time of booking the only available unit was of "Ocean View" grade. Initially we wanted something with a more direct ocean view, but...

I stayed with my family in #125 for a week in March, and it was one of the nicest places I've stayed anywhere! The perfect combination of comfort and a spectacular location. The condo was spacious, clean, and had an incredible view of the ocean over a bright green lawn and palm trees. It looked like it came right out...

We had the best time staying in #135. The condo was spacious and beautifully decorated with the most spectacular ocean view. We loved waking up every morning and having breakfast on the balcony.
