“Villa Neptune - Great Villa and a Perfect Location”
Reviewed 7 March 2013

We stayed in Villa Neptune early this year an absolutely loved it. The villa is clean, spacious and has enough bedrooms for 2 families. The kitchen looks out to a awesome view of the tranquil Geographe Bay and is equipped with everything you need for an easy and comfortable holiday. The gas hood BBQ and the large outdoor setting made those balmy nights picture perfect.

The rammed earth and high ceilings made it very cool and there was plenty of space to relax. A big plasma TV, DVD, stereo and with books and games to enjoy it keeps everybody entertained.

Grassed lawn and trees between the villa and the beach makes it ideal for the kids to play and the path along the beach is the perfect setting for walking or bike riding. The bay in front of the villa is shallow and you can walk out for miles or just sit and relax.

Whalers Cove is a great complex and Villa Neptune's beach front location is so picturesque and peaceful yet it is a short distance to the shops and restaurants.

Just fabulous and so relaxing!

Wow... what a great review!!! Villa Neptune has the prime position of all of our beachfront villas with uninterrupted views of the Bay.

it is a great villa to sit outside and watch the world go by. If lucky, when there is a full moon we have our own "Stairway to the Moon" as the moon rises up over the bay leaving a stunning reflection on the calm waters.

Thanks again for the review and see you again soon!

We were a couple and two singles and stayed in a three bedroom villa back from the beach. My room was not comfortable, with a lumpy single bed and no bedside table or lamp. At this price I do not expect to have to get out of bed to turn the light off! There was not a full-length mirror in the whole place, just over-sink mirrors in the bathrooms. The living room furniture and the kitchen, in particular, looked dated and tired and the cheap hollow doors and faded paintwork were depressing. Outside, the patio had not been swept and the table was dirty. In the bathroom, just two tiny cheap bits of soap. Not luxurious, not very pleasant and not again...!

We are a couple who live in Chicago. Our daughter, son in law and 2 grandsons were visiting Dunsborough from Shanghai. we needed a central place for a family reunion.
This house "Villa Lexington" filled the bill. It was right on the beach, nicely modern with and lovely furnishings. Very easy and yet luxurious living. I believe other villas have a bathtub and I would have liked one here, but that is a minor notion. Just buy groceries , move in and start living...
Superb!

How lucky we were to have you select Whalers Cove for your family reunion - especially spread so far apart from the USA to China!

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and that Villa Lexington was the perfect villa for your family.

It is a long way to come but hopefully you will return one day.

The stay at Whalers Cove was fantastic, great facilities for small or large groups, but the location really is special, crystal blue shallow waters, perfect for kids. Can't wait to go back

Thank you for the great feedback! Whalers Cove has a stunning location right on the beach of Geographe Bay with its crystal clear waters. It is also very safe for young children as it is quite shallow and the kids can explore around the rocky outcrops. They can also catch fish right off the beach.

We are looking forward to seeing you again soon!

Our group consisted of two adults and two teenagers staying a couple of nights at Whalers Cove Villas in the Rousseau Villa. Absolutely faultless service and accomodation, from the friendly and fast check-in and throughout our entire stay. Very well equipped kitchen, plush loungeroom area to relax in, a delightful roomy courtyard where we enjoyed two evening meals and breakfasts, the bedrooms were very comfortable, everything neat and spotless. The villa was very quiet and private. A hop skip and a jump to the lovely beach was the icing on the cake. Everyone had a great time, there was plenty of room for all, and we were all very sad to leave after our short vacation. Many thanks to Management for making us feel like welcome special guests, we certainly will be coming back again :-)

  • Liked — The privacy and peace and quiet the Villa afforded, the very close proximity of the beach, the fast check in and check out, very well equipped kitchen, you only need to bring your own food if you plan to eat at the villa.
  • Disliked — Only thing was having to pack up and leave after our stay there, we enjoyed it so much.

We have stayed in "Mayflower" at Whalers Cove Villas for the past 5 years and have had the most amazing holiday every year. We share Mayflower with close family friends and love the location, the villa is beautifully appointed and have never had any issues with lighting or ceiling fans. Managers, Pam and Nicky are fantastic people who have always been very obliging and helpful. We look forward to our 2 weeks at Whalers all year long and couldn't imagine staying anywhere else!

Reviewed 27 December 2012

We stayed at Mayflower, one of the villas at Whalers Cove. It was nicely furnished with two double rooms and one double bunk room. Dunsborough and Whalers Cove are lovely places to visit but the house was pretty grubby in places and dangerous too. In the double bunk room, the very hot halogen lights are so close to the top bunk that one of the children burnt the skin off their arm, climbing into bed. The fan is also very low and a possible danger to older children or adults using the bunks. When asked why there wasn't a warning about the lights and the fan, we were told that "it would suggest there was a risk". Since a child was burnt - there is clearly a risk and they're lucky it wasn't more serious. Other irritations included really noisy, creaky bunks and a sprinkler system that seems to be operated through the pipework in the house at 3am waking almost everybody up.

Thank you for taking the time to review the property. As we discussed with you at the time, we are currently replacing all of the halogen downlights with LED lamps that do not project as much heat and as such are much safer as well as being much more energy efficient. We have never had an incident with anyone receiving burns before and certainly not had anyone injured from the ceiling fans. The fans are centrally located and are therefore not a hazard to children sleeping in the top bunks.
We are disappointed that you found faults with the villa as it is a recently renovated modern villa which is tastefully decorated and suitable for couples and families.
