Reviewed 4 February 2014

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 accomodation direct through their website and from initial contact with staff i was completley impressed. The customer service was great and nothing was too much of a hassle.

Upon arriving we were greeted by Pam who was more than helpful. Our accomodation was beautiful, completley spotless and fully equipped with everything we needed for our weekend getaway. Only metres to the beach and a short stroll into town.

We have more family visiting in November and we will most definitley be back.

Thank you :) :) :)

Room Tip: We stayed in Hibernia, just one row back from the beach. Great location and fully equipped with 3...

We are so glad to hear that your stay with us was so enjoyable. Villa Hibernia is a lovely villa with everything you need for a short or long holiday. The location of Whalers Cove Villas is perfect to explore the beautiful Margaret River region.

We look forward to seeing you again later in the year.

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), the unit was perfectly clean and very well appointed. Pam and Nicki were always available to assist when required. The group of villas was nicely arranged so Mr 10 could scoot around them on his scooter quite safely. The beach is a 1 minute walk away with no roads to cross and with a nice grass area for cricket or bocce between the villas and the beach. The walk into the main part of town takes 5-6 minutes. There were plenty of large trees around the grounds which were beautifully maintained. A couple of things to check when booking - not all villas have the same amenities as each is privately owned (eg air con) so read the lists carefully and not all back eating areas are private - some face out onto the internal road (Rousseau was very private). I would highly recommend Whalers cover for large groups or families.

Thank you very much for the fantastic review and we are glad that the family had a great time. As you mentioned it is important to investigate each villa that will suit the individual needs as they are all individually owned and appointed. This can be done through our website or else by giving us a call.

Don't forget we have a family beach out the front which is shallow and perfect for young ones.

We look forward to catching up again next time you come on holidays!

Thank you for the great review! Your tip about asking us which villa is most suitable for your needs is very relevant, as all of the villas have different layouts and bedding configurations.
We look forward to seeing you again next time you are down in Dunsborough.

Whalers Cove is an excellent accommodation spot for those wanting to experience the best of Dunsborough. Right on the beach and walking distance to the local town - what more could you ask for?! The unit we stayed in was Maraboo and it was lovely. The lay-out suited 2 couples and 2 babies perfectly. We were impressed by the high quality appliances and cutlery and crockery and even the great books and fun boardgames that were provided. Pam and Nicki are wonderful managers and nothing seems too much trouble. Definitely going to be heading back there in summer, as sadly the weather was terrible when we were down there and we could not take advantage of the breath-taking beaches:( All round an awesome spot!

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 battery dead. Perfect spot to explore MR and dunsborough from.

Thank you for your kind review. The villas are spacious and they have lovely courtyards to sit and catch the sun. Glad we could help with the repairs - the beauty of living in a small town is that you get good contacts and our local trades persons are always willing to help out - such as in times of emergency such as flat batteries!
We look forward to another visit sometime in the future.

We had two couples so stayed in a villa with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. It was clean, comfortable and good value for the money. Less than ten minutes walk to the Dunsborough shops. Free WiFi was a bonus - it's limited to two devices per villa, but usually that's adequate.

Thank you for your feedback.
The free wifi has only been in place a couple of months and unfortunately we have to limit the number of devices otherwise the system may not cope with the demand especially during peak times. We are monitoring this and if we find that we are not experiencing problems then we will be able to remove this limitation.

We just stayed at Whalers Cove for a week in August. Our Villa was Mayflower which had 3 bedrooms and a fantastic newly renovated bathroom complete with deep spa bath and rain shower. The villa was beautifully appointed and we could not fault anything at all. The best part of a winter break is being able to sit in front of the fireplace when it's raining cats and dogs outside.

The beds are super comfortable and the kitchen facilities are fantastic for preparing dinners. The management are very friendly and really make sure you feel at home. Having a 6 month old baby we wanted a place that was fully equipped and Mayflower Villa had everything we needed especially a washing machine and dryer.

The beach front is great for a stroll on at sunset and having the town centre of Dunsborough a 5 minute drive away is very handy for a grocery run. If you want a nice lunch nearby there are plenty of great spots including Eagle Bay Brewery, Wise Winery and Clancy's Fish Pub.

We had relatives visiting from overseas who stayed down the road at Wyndham resort but they were over at the villa everyday which is just so well suited for entertaining and relaxing. We had a fantastic week away and hope to return in the future.

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We love having families stay and of course during winter it is so beautifully quiet!

The Margaret River region is appealing in the winter as it is so green and whilst a bit chilly it is great to explore the region by day and sit by the fire at night.

We look forward to seeing you again and watching your family grow!
