Overall this is a great location in Poipu. The lanai is beautiful and creates a perfect place to watch sunset, sunrise and the ocean. The condo is spacious with many great amenities. Highly recommend but be aware of the below before you book: 1. This condo does not have air conditioning. We missed this in the listing and the reviews didn’t mention. Not a huge issue if you are used to sleeping in 75-80 degree rooms. During the day the condo was very warm. There are several fans but we found ourselves still warm. Sleeping was tough and being on the first floor, we did not feel comfortable leaving the patio doors open at night. I would guess the rooms were 75-80 degrees each night. 2. There is quite a bit of construction at the moment. We were made aware that the pool was being resurfaced during our stay and prepared for that. However, we did not know that many of the condos are having windows replaced and possibly other repairs. They actually replaced the windows in our condo during our stay and we were not told. Not sure if they entered our condo or replaced them from the outside, but would have liked to be notified beforehand. This also left a strong caulk/paint smell in the condo. Make no mistake, the condo is great and the location is wonderful. Just a few minor hiccups that made it less than 5 star for us.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Whalers Cove is an unparalleled location for a completely relaxing vacation. Unit 113 is a charming, unassuming unit with a wonderful lanai from which to listen to the crashing waves and watch the wildlife. The beautiful azure pool and surrounding deck at the point of the property allowed for turtle watching, sunning and quick dips to cool off. What a wonderful stay. We look forward to returning.

You couldn't ask for a more stunning setting. The condo we stayed in was comfortable, clean, with pretty much everything we needed during our stay. Being able to walk out the back sliding door in the morning, sit on the lanai and experience such a beautiful place was incredible.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We stayed at Whaler's Cove #113 as 2 couples who choose a trip every year together. This unit was a great fit for our Kauai vacation! We enjoyed every morning on the patio overlooking the ocean drinking Mimosas and eating breakfast. The view is spectacular and even if it rains the patio is covered. We could walk everyday to Lawa'i Beach next to Beach House Restaurant. Easy access down 4-5 stairs to the unit. The manager was in contact with us through our stay and welcomed us with fresh flowers. The pool is amazing and so is the view! We would highly recommend this unit to others and hope to return soon!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: A wonderful get a way in a tranquil/private wonderland. The home is very comfortable. The deck is private and has a direct ocean view. There is a grassy area in front of the deck that leads to a magical pool area that was never crowded! It is central to everything but is tucked away in a private neighorhood. The only down side is there is no central air conditioning and although the trade winds blow through the grassy area it never reaches the inside of the condo. The fans in this unit were rusty/dusty and one just needed to be thrown away. I'm sure the agency will take care of it.

Could use more guidance for novices on how to operate the different cable operating systems in the living room and bedroom. the new carpeting was great. Sliding screens in living room kept falling off track. Otherwise super nice unit and Whaler's Cove has great setting, amenities, etc.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Property was more than acceptable. The proximity to the ocean was amazing. Unfotunately we were in Kauai with no trade winds and ninety degree temps. At some point I think air conditioning should some how be added to the condo, at least in the bedrooms. Not the fault of the property management but the unit was warm. Portable fans should be updated, and with the new carpeting, the vertical blinds in the master bedroom offered little privacy.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: WC Unit 113 needs freshening up. We have stayed at this property many times and several times in this particular unit. There are stains on the living room carpet, there were dishes and cutlery that did not appear to be clean. I don’t know if it’s the dishwasher or if they were put away dirty. There’s a foam mattress topper on the bed in the master bedroom that makes it too hot to sleep. If the unit had A/C that would be okay, but it does not. The vertical blinds in master bedroom didn’t work properly either. We have always loved staying in 113 and that’s why we chose it again for this trip. The views are beautiful, the lanai is spacious. I love that there are two chaise lounges on lanai too. I would like very much to rent this property again, but will probably wait until it’s been remodeled.

My family spent one week at this condo, and it was nothing short of amazing! After a minor glitch with rental agency calendars and a stressful hour wondering if we were actually going to get to check in and stay at Whalers Cove #113, Louis kindly sorted it all out and we were able to settle in! The unit provides so much - including beach chairs + an umbrella, boogie birds, some snorkel gear, shampoo + conditioner, etc. It is beautifully maintained, well stocked, has comfortable beds, and looks right out onto the blue sea. Sunrises and sunsets on the lanai were only topped by the sounds of waves crashing 24/7. The grounds are beautiful, and the location was great. It is a quieter, lovely, neighborhood, and walking distance to some restaurants/stores. It is 100% a place our family would choose to stay again!
