Fantastic location and very comfortable condo

Posted Apr 18, 2017
It was exactly the low-key experience we were looking for. We sipped coffee on the porch each morning, sipped cocktails in the evening, and explored every inch of the island in the hours in between. The condo was well equipped and within walking distance to local markets and restaurants. We'll definitely be back. Mahalo for an excellent vacation!

Great location but.....

Great location, great views but the ants and cockroaches killed it for us. Room cleanliness was not worth the price

Unit #233

Posted Jul 29, 2016
Pros: Super comfortable furnishings and attention to details. Loved the sparkling pool with ocean view.
Cons: We find when we stay in fully-equipped condos it would be appreciated to have some sort of foil, plastic wrap and/or baggies provided.
Location: Great location close to shops, restaurants, beaches, Spouting Horn and gardens. Recommend Spezia, a small Italian restaurant in nearby Koloa.
Lovely and spacious two-level condo with 2 master bedrooms, each with full bath plus a half-bath downstairs. Large oceanfront lanai with two lounge chairs plus table with four chairs. Snorkel with sea turtles right from property. Plenty of free parking.

Aloha and Mahalo for your comments. We'd be happy to pre-stock your kitchen pre-arrival with any grocery items you want including foil, plastic wrap and baggies. Very handy if you like to start your vacation without a trip to the grocery store. We provide this service for the cost of the items plus a small delivery fee. Hope you will come back and stay with us again.

condos on rocky coastline

Posted Jan 17, 2016
Pros: Quiet and an out-of-the-way location
Cons: Mattresses
Location: Central to either end of the island. Not too much to do nearby, but that is what I wanted.
The condominium I was supposed to stay in had a faulty front door lock. I did get to see the interior and it was on the second floor, and it was clean and sufficient. The beds were okay, looked like they could use new mattresses. The management upgraded me to a nicer unit on the first floor. It was clean and quiet. The downside was that I was uncomfortable sleeping at night with the sliding glass door open, and that was the only window ventilation available with no air conditioning. It was nice. The bathrooms were very nice, laundry in the unit was convenient, and it was certainly centrally located on the island, which is what I was looking for. All in all, I had a nice stay.

Great resort on the ocean in Poipu area

Posted Dec 12, 2015
Pros: The views from the oceanfront room (#136) were great! The service was good.
Cons: The WiFi while generally ok could be further improved.
Location: The resort is located in a quiet area close to Poipu resort area and old Koloa town. It is very close (walkable) to Baby Beach.
We had a great stay at Whalers Cove over Thanksgiving week! We were very happy with the resort, room and all the staff at the resort. Following are some of the major details. Rooms: The room (#136) was very clean, spacious and well-furnished. The kitchen was well-stocked with utensils and the dishwasher, washer and dryer were a big help. The beds were comfortable and the ocean views from the room were great. The owners have done a great job in furnishing and maintaining the unit! Staff: All the staff were friendly and helpful and a huge shout-out to Marianne for all her help and guidance during our stay. She very graciously accommodated our requests of early check-in and late check-out and also gave us lot of tips on sightseeing and activities. Amenities: The parking and WiFi were free and the WiFi was generally reliable. Location: The resort is located in a quiet area close to Poipu resort area and old Koloa town. It is very close (walkable) to Baby Beach and less than a 5 min drive away to Spouting Horn park. Kukui’ula Village and Poipu Shopping Village are very close by too. Overall, we had a pleasant stay at Whalers Cove Resort and highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a quiet family time in Poipu.
