Absolutely SPLENDID!

Our second time at Whalers Cove (first three years ago) and it was better than ever. Amazing place to stay (Villa Hibernia) just seconds from the beach. Quiet yet very social. Easy to get into Dunsborough and travel anywhere in Margaret River area. The whole resort is very clean with beautif...

A little bit of paradise

We arrived with our two kids in tow ,one a 4 year old and a 9 month old infant. The place had enormous space for the kids to play and was nice and clean, the bathrooms were both good sizes for a family and the facilities were fantastic. I would definitely recommend anyone staying with a fami...

A Wonderful place to stay

Three generations of our family got together for a reunion. Our chosen villa, Koskorora was the perfect place to stay. Beds were extremely comfortable and the facilities were excellent. Not only did we have a wood-burning stove to keep us warm but a reverse cycle air conditioner for early mo...

A wonderful stay

Absolutely loved our stay in these roomy villas. Loft was cool for our 15yo. All essential facilities including good wifi. Lovely owners too who went out of their way to help us with our car when the battery died. Perfect spot to explore MR and Dunsborough from.when

Beachside bliss

Day 4 of our 2-week trip to WA and, having stopped at Busselton Jetty and Equinox bar on the way through from BeFremantle, we received a friendly welcome at Whalers Cove and quickly settled into our fantastic villa, Lexington. Set right at the rear of the complex (ie well away from the main ...

Best accommodation of our trip

Villa Neptune lived up to the photos. The view from the kitchen, lounge and balcony was fantastic - whales, pelicans, locals walking their dogs - and the neighbouring villas tucked out of sight. One of the cleanest places I have stayed in, and the furnishings felt fresh and well-cared for. P...

Best location on Dunsborough's beach

Excellent accommodation. Very clean, comfortable. great location on the beach. Good quality cooking facilities and utensils etc. Very comfortable 4 poster beds, excellent showers in both bathrooms. All in all a very relaxing time, with everything you need at hand.

Bliss - we couldn't ask for more

Dream Long Weekend

This is all that you would hope for from the most relaxed destination. You feel remote and private, yet an easy walk to the shops allows you to shop for all non essentials and alike the beaches are child friendly although just be aware that they're are some pointy rocks which can cut feet. A...

Easiest of times

We stayed a few nights over school holidays for a 'mums and kids' mini break. Our Villa was William Tell which consists of two bedrooms plus a loft. Having done an on-line booking, check in was very efficient - basically grab the keys and answering any questions I had. Super efficient! We ar...

Excellent choice

Very Good, well equiped villas in an excellent, quiet location (very close to the beach), William Tell 2Bedroom Villa had the added bonus of Foxtel with every channel, especially good for kids quiet time before bed. We would definitely stay again.

Excellent Location, Good Accommodation.

Our family of four (2 adults and 2 boys - 13 and 10 years old) stayed here for 10 days in January in Unit 18 (Rousseau). We found the accommodation to be fantastic for our family. There was plenty of space (including an outside room/area to store bikes, fishing gear, tennis racquets etc), th...

Exceptional family accommodation

Have just returned from a fabulous break at Whalers Cove. A group of us - singles, couples and families had 4 villas and were there to celebrate my 50th Birthday. For many of us (including overseas and interstate visitors) it was our first visit to Whalers Cove and everyone was amazed at wha...

Fabulous 50th

6 on us shared a large beach front villa. The bedrooms and communal areas were large and great for entertaining. Fantastic location (a short walk to Dunsborough). Room Tip: The large beach front chalets are the best.

We were one of 2 families sharing the 4 bed beach front villa. It's in a great location, right on the beach, walkable to the local town, and easily accessible to all the main attractions in Margaret River. The managers on site were very friendly and helpful, they recommended a winery to us w...

Great villa in a great location

We stayed in a beachfront villa early this year and absolutely loved it. The villa was clean, spacious and has enough bedrooms for 2 families. The kitchen looks out to an awesome view of the tranquil Geographe Bay and is equipped with everything you need for an easy and comfortable holiday. ...

Great Villas and a Perfect Location

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights at the end of January, we had visitors over from the UK so we thought it would be nice to show them the wonders of Dunsborough and Margaret River. I booked Whalers Cove accommodation direct through their website and from initial contact with staff I ...

Great weekend away!

We stayed for 3 nights at the Halcyon villa, a four bedroom luxury villa right on the beach front with the most amazing view overlooking coastline. The villa itself was immaculately clean and decorated to the highest of standards. It was well equipped with everything and more you could need ...

Halcyon villa, whalers cove

We have been staying at Whalers regularly for 8 years. The spacious villas comfortably accommodate my family and friends and we never want to go home when the time comes to leave. The location to the crystal clear waters of the beach and the town is perfect for our morning coffee walks and b...

Kids most favourite place in the world!

Luxury at its best

Past Mandurah, past Bunbury, past Busselton, heading for Cape Naturaliste, we found these gorgeous villas. Spacious and comfy, and just off the beach. The manager was friendly and interesting to talk to.

Luxury by the beach just south of Perth

Had a super trip to Whalers Cove in August 2011. Stayed in Villa Hibernia. It was beautiful, rustic but modern and all necessary amenities. Although it was August cool and rainy weather we were kept warm by the the log fire which added character. All the apartments looked to be well kept wi...

Luxury, comfort and service

We have been staying at Whaler's Cove Villas for the last 8 Years, normally once or twice a year. It is perfect for long winter weekends down south. Superbly located, it is a great launching point for visiting wineries and restaurants in the South West. We have stayed in about 5 different vi...

Old Favourite

The accommodation was out of this world. The view was magic and so peaceful especially when viewing the ocean from the tower (with the wonderful staircase) . The area is beautiful and the customer service was spot on . We look forward to returning to Whalers Cove in the future .


This place was stunning! Just a short walk to the beach with magpies singing me awake. The front desk clerk was very accommodating and welcoming. Highly recommend to anyone seeking a comfortable experience.


Great Location, walking distance to Dunsborough town, beach is on your doorstep, we have stayed twice now - each "home" is slightly different to the other, with the same 'facilities" and we will be returning - once again staying in a different "home". Water pressure in the showers is sooo go...

Peacefully Perfect

Was very impressed with every facet of Whalers Cove. Very spacious villas, modern decor, great location (literally a 1 minute walk to the beach). Husband and I went there for our anniversary (just the two of us) but would suit groups or families looking for a getaway. Highly recommended!!

Perfect for a couples or family getaway!

As part of our WA break we elected to stay in Dunsborough for four nights. Whalers Cove Villas had a very attractive winter offer of four nights for the price of three. Dunsborough is an ideal base for exploring the Geographe region and the Margaret River region of WA. Dunsoborough is just o...

We have stayed at Whalers Cover twice now and would recommend it to anyone. You can look online and book the villa that suits you. They are clean, comfortable and well appointed. They provide free firewood for the cold winter nights and it’s a short stroll to the beach or into town. A great...

Relax and have a wine

Had an opportunity to stay in one of the villas here during a visit to South West Australia a year ago. The beach is just a short walk and all the attractions of the area just a short drive away. Villas are well maintained and clean and beds comfortable. Really relaxing holiday and we thorou...
