Whaler`s Cove Resort is one of the most popular resorts on Kauai`s beautiful South Shore in Poipu. Your vacation rental is roughly a 3-minute walk from Baby Beach, a unique, quiet beach that`s fun for kids. The lanais have views that are difficult to beat. Perfect horizon-to-horizon views of the sunrise and sunset and the 24/7 ocean views are just fabulous. As for Whaler`s Cove in general, it will be more than you could have hoped for. If you want peace and quiet, first class condos, meticulously kept and beautiful grounds, a great private and uncrowded oceanfront pool, spa hot tub, lava-rock shower, barbecues, free parking and local calls and a full kitchen to use at your leisure, its Whaler`s Cove.
One of the wonderful benefits of Whaler`s Cove location is that it`s just a few minutes walk away from the new Kukui`ula Shopping Center, home to a variety of outstanding restaurants. This unique marketplace offers a diverse experience in shopping as well. Don`t miss the Kauai Culinary Market on Wednesdays from 4-6 pm where fresh, locally-grown fruits, vegetables and coffee, along with spices, jams and cheeses, are available to purchase while you are entertained with live island music. South Shore chefs take the stage at the Wine and Beer Garden to show their skill cooking local specialties. You often find special local entertainment at this very unique event.
Golf is minutes away at Kiahuna Golf Course, a par-70, 6,353-yard Robert Trent Jones, Jr.-designed course which plays around four large archaeological sites, ranging from an ancient Hawaiian temple to the remains of a Portuguese home and crypt, built in the early 1800s, or enjoy the newly renovated, world-famous Poipu Bay Golf Course situated on 210 oceanfront acres -- challenging at all levels of play and yet fun for the novice as well. Poipu Bay hosted the PGA Grand Slam of Golf from 1994-2006.

Great location, peaceful, wonderful view!
5 night stay in July 2013 at Whalers Cove, booked through Great Vacation Retreats. Condo is located in a quiet residential neighbor in Poipu, short drive to great beaches. Short walk to upscale shopping and dining. 2 bedroom condo was very spacious and well-equipped. Only down-side would be lack of aC, but ceiling and floor fans are available. View of Pacific is amazing. Gas grill was nice. So much nicer than the standard hotel room, there is plently of room for a families. Landscaping is beautiful.

Exactly what we needed
It had been 20 years since we've been back to Kauai. We chose this property based on the location, description and the positive reviews with Great Vacation Retreats. We were not disappointed! The condo is well maintained for the age of the unit. It was exactly what we needed to start our 3 week vacation in Hawaii. We plan on coming back to Kauai every year, and hope we'll be able to reserve this condo each time. Mahalo.

Lovely condo and great location
The porch was amazing. We would put our daughter to bed and sit out on the lanai all evening and watch the water. The view is great. The location is perfect...walking distance to the market, baby beach, and restaurants. The pool was never crowded and very nice. The condo was spacious. We used Great Vacation Rentals

Lovely condoGuest comment entered by manager
Great location. Quiet (except for sound of waves rolling in and the palm trees swaying in the breeze). Walking distance from the Market. Nice pool. Great view from our patio. Condo was clean and comfortable. We visited Kauai with our infant daughter (7 mos old). She stayed in our room (the master). The second bed room was therefore not used at all; but it would have been perfectly comfortable for two children (with the two single beds). We will definitely return some day. Thank you for the lovely experience.

Perfect Paradise Retreat!Guest comment entered by manager
Perfect Paradise Retreat!
Whaler's Cove 212 is the perfect spot to enjoy the beauty and magic of Kauai! This was our 5th year in a row staying in WC 212 and we will return next year and the next year and the next, for as long as the unit is available. We have been coming to Kauai since 1982 and this is by far the most enjoyable accommodations we have found. The location of the complex is perfect; quiet and tucked away from any distractions other than the sight and sounds of ocean, which is right outside your doorstep! We have watched whales and dolphins, amazing sunrises and beautiful sunsets without ever leaving the property. The oceanfront pool and jacuzzi is a wonderful place to enjoy the sun or unwind in the evening while watching the endless number of stars in the night sky. The unit is modern, comfortable, clean, well stocked; all the comforts and necessities of home. There are beaches, shops and restaurants within walking distance of the complex; as well as a variety of activities such as golfing, hiking and diving within a ten minute drive. Amy and her staff at Great Vacation Retreats are the best! They go above and beyond to make sure your stay in paradise is one you will never forget! I can't enough about their service and attention to detail. I would highly recommend Great Vacation Retreats and Whaler's Cove #212.

Great location but no aCGuest comment entered by manager
Great location but no aC
It was disappointing to walk in and see rolled carpet in the living room, sliding screen doors that were bent and did not close properly, serious water damage on the shower wall near the laundry facilities, and walls that needed paint throughout the unit. The hallway wallpaper had been stripped, but the walls were never repainted -- they just rehung the pictures. The lack of air conditioning made it difficult to sleep at night. A Tripadvisor review dated 1/30/2010 said there were beach chairs, mats, coolers and boggie boards, but we didn't find any of those things during our stay. It was quite trecherous to scramble over the rocks to access the cove where other reviewers apparently snorkled with the sea turtles. We weren't lucky enough to see any, although we checked everytime we went out to the parking lot. (From previous reviews on Tripadvisor, I assumed I would see the turtles from the lanai, but that is not so.) However, the location was fantastic. The ocean view from the lani was beautiful, and we loved eating all of our meals outside watching the crashing waves. It was only a few steps to the pool and spa. It is a short drive to Poipu Beach for snorkeling and sunning on a sandy, lifeguarded beach. It was very convenient being picked up at the airport and taken to our rental car; however, I suspect everything wasn't "on the up and up" because they told us they were not legally permitted to park at the airport and we had to meet them at an off-site parking lot at the end of our stay to drop off the car. All in all -- it's a million dollar view, but the condo definitely needs the maintenance issues addressed before I can recommend it to a friend. Also, I wouldn't rent another condo on Kauai until I'm sure there is air-conditioning.

The Essence of Kauai
We just returned from our 4th or 5th year in a row at Whaler's Cove #212 and everything was just as perfect as the previous trips. The condo is absolutely beautiful and the location is convenient, yet peaceful, allowing for a restful, relaxing vacation. The view from the lanai is breathtaking!! We enjoyed most of our meals from that spot. The grounds and pool area are beautiful and immaculately maintained. Amy and the staff at Great Vacation Retreats are wonderful to work with and we highly recommend their services and accommodations!

Just as expected!
We recently stayed at Whaler's Cove in 212 and had a wonderful experience. Everything was just as we had hoped! The condo was large, clean, and beautifully furnished but best of all, it was right on the ocean and had wonderful views of the crashing waves and beautifully landscaped pool area. Most of our time was spent away exploring the island of Kauai but at the end of a busy day we really looked forward to returning to WC to enjoy a swim in the pool,dinner on the lanai and then the hot tub! The kitchen was really well equipped with quality pots and pans and every utensil you could want for cooking. We only ate dinner out once - we loved our evenings sitting on the lanai. Dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, fridge with filtered water and ice maker, hair blower, iron, there was nothing missing! The condo was quiet, hardly saw anyone else the first week. I have read that a few other people have suggested the condo needed a bit of TLC and that is agreed. It could use a few touch ups here and there but definitely nothing that would interfere with anyone's stay. We felt very lucky to have found this condo and would look to staying here again on another trip. Location was great in terms of being able to walk around parts of Poipu and pretty central to get to other parts of the island. Definitely would recommend Wc212 as a place to stay...

Great Property - Great View
If you want ocean front, this place is perfect. The property is up to date and just like home. The only disadvantage would be the air flow through the property, it can get a bit stuffy especially at night even with all the windows and doors open. I would recommend this property for a couple with young children or an older couple, if you have kids who want on-site activities, this is not the place but if you want a spacious, up to date condo with fabulous ocean views, Whalers Cove 212 is perfect.

About: Aloha~ Thank you for viewing my properties! My name is Amy Grant and I own a boutique vacation management company in Kauai called Great Vacation Retreats. I happily work and reside in Kauai and have been managing vacation rentals on the Garden Isle for almost 4 years. Been married to my husband, Scott, since 2003 and we have a beautiful little girl named Presley. When we aren't busy chasing her around, we enjoy going to the beach, cooking and traveling. I love working with my guests to find the perfect place for them to call home while on vacation. It can be overwhelming trying to pick out the right property -- I can help. My staff and I take great pride in the properties we manage and believe that we truly have some of the best properties the island has to offer. We have been in each property numerous times and stayed in most so that we can give you an accurate description of what each property's amenities are, distances to the beach, sightseeing, restaurants, etc. We can also help you with any activities you might be interested in while on island such as surfing lessons, private boat charters, guided hikes, stand up paddling, personal chef, childcare and much more! Mahalo for looking :)
Why Whalers Cove:
My husband and I were married at Kee Beach on the North Shore and visited the island several times after. We used to manage vacation rentals in Lake Tahoe and many of the owners also owned property in Kauai and asked if we would be interested in starting a business here. After a couple of years, we finally made the move and have been blissfully happy ever since. The island has so much natural beauty and outdoor activities, yet it still doesn't have that 'big resort' feel. It is a great, safe place for children and also makes for a perfect honeymoon or anniversary destination.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
There are so many outdoor activities to enjoy here -- going to the beach, surfing, stand up paddling, horseback riding, hiking, sightseeing, taking a boat charter along the Napali Coast, kayaking, camping, biking, etc. I enjoy getting a spa treatment at the Anara Day Spa at the Hyatt. If you enjoy going to a spa, their facial is perfect. My husband and I met at culinary school and consider ourselves 'foodies'. We love the Kilauea Bakery for a great cup of coffee and the bialys (stuffed bagels) are amazing. Some other restaurants that we enjoy are Josselins, the Kalaheo Café, Postcards, Roy’s, Tip Top Café and Kauai Pasta just to name a few. There are some wonderful farmers markets here and fish markets (Hanalei Dolphin is the best) with their fresh local catches of the day. Ahi is, of course, an island favorite and can be found at many of the restaurants throughout the island. Whale watching is from December - March and is quite a sight to see. Some of the best golf courses in the US are located in Kauai. We work with some activity providers that provide personalized hikes and activities that are 'off the beaten path' and truly show you what Kauai has to offer.
