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. The staff at Whaler's Cove were extremely attentive in regards to everything from local restaurant recommendations to having fresh towels, beach and bath, ready when we requested....

This was my first trip to Hawaii/Kauai and Whaler's Cove stood out among all the other condos with its stand-alone elegance and proximity to the ocean. "Wows" were passed back and forth from the entrance of the reception desk to the condo itself. The staff were very pleasant and accommodated all of our requests. They answered all of our questions...

Prior to our first trip to Hawaii, I researched online for available housing near the beach and came across the stellar reviews for this property. They are well-deserved. Marianne was a gem to deal with and she booked us in unit #210, a two-BR end unit. She let us borrow beach mats and chairs to take to the very close...
