WHALERS COVE 230


Enjoy a relaxing getaway with the whole family—or a romantic weekend just the two of you. One of the most popular resorts in Poipu, Whaler's Cove is renowned for its serene atmosphere and meticulously maintained grounds, which include an ocean-front infinity pool, lava-rock shower, and outdoor barbecues.

With its exclusive corner location and magnificent ocean views, you'll never want to leave Whaler's Cove 230! Pick up your free mid-size rental car at Lihue Airport and make the 30-minute drive to our tropical oasis, where you can park it in our complimentary lot. You'll find everything you need to cook your meals in a gourmet kitchen, so sit down to dinner as a family at the 6-person dining room table. Throughout the home, you'll find tasteful decor and modern touches like travertine floors and granite counter-tops.

In the evening, unwind with a drink on the massive lanai. As you gaze out at both the resort pool and the blue Hawaiian ocean, you'll realize: it truly doesn't get better than this! When it's time for bed, head upstairs. The master bedroom has a king-size bed and an en-suite bathroom with a jetted tub and double sinks. The guest bedroom has two twin beds that can be bridged into a king and an en-suite bathroom with a spa shower.

All of our Great Vacation Retreats have modern amenities to make your stay as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. Bluetooth stereos and Smart TVs offer the latest in entertainment, and our electronic charging stations mean your group will never have to fight over outlets.

Why We Love This Home

Ocean-front Location: Located in a quiet neighborhood at the ocean's edge, there's no better place to stay in Poipu than Whaler's Cove. It's an excellent place to watch for turtles, and you'll probably spot scuba divers jumping in, too!

Luxurious Amenities: Everything at Whaler's Cove is designed with the discerning customer in mind, from the beautiful infinity pool overlooking the ocean to the lava-stone spa shower where you'll rinse off after a dip in the sea.

Space for Everyone: With loads of common space, Whaler's Cove 230 is the perfect getaway for your whole family. Aren't you ready to reconnect?


Peaceful and quiet, Whaler's Cove is well known for being the perfect spot for those looking to get away from it all on a romantic vacation or family trip. In the morning, take a 3-minute walk to Baby Beach, a unique and peaceful beach that's perfect for the kids. There's nothing more fun than watching the resident turtles swim around—except maybe watching the locals scuba diving nearby!

After a day at the beach, you'll have worked up an appetite. Take the 10-minute walk to the Shops at Kukui'ula, a local haunt that offers with dining, shopping, and art galleries in one easy-to-navigate location. Grab delicious local ingredients at the gourmet farmers market on Wednesday evenings to cook the evening's dinner. Just don't forget to stop for a shaved ice on your way out.

Guest review taken from Airbnb on 6/22/19 for Whalers Cove 230 --- We absolutely loved our time in Whaler's cove 230! Everything was perfect! We especially loved all the thoughtful gifts they left for us and also the abundance of laundry and dish detergent for the dishwasher. That is so unusual for a rental. We couldn't have asked for a better location or better experience. When we arrived, we were met with fresh eggs and sausage, a pineapple and mango, several Hawaiian snacks, a coloring book, bubbles, a game for the kids, coffee, a reusable shopping bag and more. The condo is in a great location overlooking the pool and water. The condo is on the third floor but there is an elevator that makes getting luggage up to the room a breeze. The pool is beautifully lit at night and my children thought it was magical. We enjoyed watching the sea turtles from the lanai! We spent the majority of our time at the condo on the lanai enjoying the ocean view and the sound of the waves. It is spacious and well furnished. It was the perfect spot for my yoga practice while we were there. We also enjoyed watching the parakeets roost each night from the lanai. The bedroom with two beds has an AC unit and that was very welcome as that room doesn't seem like it would stay cool otherwise as it's only windows face the road. The rest of the condo does not have AC but doesn't really need it. With the fans in the master bedroom and the trade winds constantly blowing through, we were just fine without AC. We were glad to find that even though we left the windows open during our entire stay, the condo never felt wet like other places we have stayed on the island. We were very happy to have a washer and dryer in the condo. That made doing laundry throughout our stay much easier. We loved that they provided a cooler. We took it with us everyday for all of our different adventures. Two beach chairs, a beach umbrella, and a boogie board were provided. The beach chairs are very nice quality. We also loved that they provided 6 beach towels. We have stayed at other units that were not as generous with the beach towels. The linens were also nice and (Website hidden by Airbnb) moldy smelling towels thank goodness. Make sure to go down the steps in the parking lot to the little turtle cove. We saw so many turtles up close there every single day. Sunset was the best time to enjoy that space. So many turtles everywhere!!! I highly recommend this unit and will definitely stay here again next time we visit the island with our children!

Only have a couple complaints/suggestions. Cable didnt work in two of the rooms, couch and living room chairs were really uncomfortable. Staff on site were rude & clearly annoyed we hadnt booked with the property directly, would not book excursions or even answer questions about the island if you didnt book thru them. On the plus side - unexpected benefits - liked that there was a cooler & boogie board available to use, washer dryer nice to have, location was amazing, bed was comfortable. --- We will share your feedback with maintenance!

GVR was great with communication before, during, and after the trip. It's so fast and convenient to be able to text back and forth with them. We had a couple concerns that they dealt with immediately. And we loved the fresh flower arrangement waiting for us when we checked in. Great customer service. The condo itself is ideally situated: walking distance to Baby Beach, Turtle Cove, Kukui'ula Shopping Center (shops, galleries, restaurants, and a farmers' market on Wednesdays), the local Kukui'ula Market (produce, musubi, sushi, poke bowls, and fresh juice), and Da Crack (yummy local Mexican food joint). The ocean view is gorgeous, and the entire condo complex is well maintained. Not pros or cons, just a few things to note about this condo: 1. There is no central AC. The north-facing bedroom has a small window AC unit and it was the only room that actually needed it, since it got the most sunlight during the day. If you're downstairs, open the front and patio doors for a nice sea breeze. And all rooms had fans. 2. All the beds were pretty firm. 3. There's an elevator that goes to the third floor where the front door is, but the unit itself has 2 stories. Bedrooms are on the second story, stair access only. Overall, all 4 of us really enjoyed our stay at Whaler's Cove and would absolutely book this condo with GVR again.

The unit has a beautiful view of the ocean and the pool. It was a huge hit for our young kids! The location is fantastic - close to a lot of shops and restaurants. The condo is well-appointed with many of the simple things that make a stay more comfortable. There is one portable AC unit in the condo big enough for a bedroom, which generally worked out okay for us but is worth noting if you have anyone in your party who is particularly sensitive to heat/humidity. The Kauai breeze is beautiful and the lanai is a particularly beautiful place to enjoy it.

Just please do not use my full name. My stay was fabulous. The property at Whalers Cove was exactly what I wanted - ocean front and center, but not directly looking at the setting sun which tends to really overheat a unit. The property was beautiful and fully equipped. The master bedroom was like being on the crow's nest of a ship and wonderfully cool with the cross ventilation and ceiling fans. Even the shower had an ocean view. I never missed not having air conditioning. The overall property was small (about 35 units) and private and quiet. MANAGER'S RESPONSE: Thank you for the wonderful review. I am glad that Whalers Cove more than met your expectations. I hope you can return and stay with us again someday. :)

The views from our room were awesome! We could see people snorkeling around the turtle cove. Also the waves in front of the pool were just amazing. Waking up, making coffee and watching the sunrise was my favorite part of the day. Or maybe it was the opening a bottle of wine and sitting on the lanai to relax and listen to the waves at night was my favorite... hmmmm... hard to choose a favorite!
