Spent five nights in Koskorora with my daughter and young grandaughters. The unit was extremely well equipped and all our needs were well met. Pam in the office was very welcoming and nothing was to much trouble. After informing her that the smoke detector had intermittently gone off during our first night,the electrician was there within the hour to fix...

Thank you very much for the review. We understand how annoying it is when things such as beeping smoke alarms disturb your sleep (and the little ones) so we will do everything we can to rectify those types of situations. All of our villas are designed and individually furnished and the best option for travellers is to visit our web...

I write this review from the comfort of my leather couch in front of the fire in my gorgeous villa. This place from the moment you arrive gives you that AAAAAHHHHHHHH feeling. The location is perfect and has its own private beach access. The staff are super friendly and helpful. The villas are well set out and very well equipped....

Thank you very much for your wonderful review and we are glad that Whalers Cove Villas was everything you could ask for. As there are no roads between us and the beach, it makes it a very peaceful place to stay - in fact the only complaints we receive are from the guests who are woken up early to the...

Thanks you so much for taking the time to review Whalers Cove and in particular Villa Pioneer. One of our greatest assets is that the resort is very child friendly and we encourage families to come and stay. With the private gardens and being on the beach with no roads to cross makes us a safe haven. We are pleased...

Whalers Cove Villas are in a great location, opposite the beach and within easy walking to the Dunsborough shopping centre. We stayed in the Hibernia Villa and it was decorated lavishly and was beautifully presented. The living area is huge with both an open fire and reverse cycle air conditioning and we could not have been more comfortable. We will...

Three generations of our family got together for a reunion. Our chosen villa, Koskorora was the perfect place to stay. Beds were extremely comfortable and the facilities were excellent.

Thank you very much for your generous feedback. You were also very lucky during your stay as it is winter but you experienced glorious spring like conditions.

Thank you for your review and we do apologise that a field mouse had snuck in to our absolute beachfront position. There is now reverse cycle air conditioning in Neptune on the beach, and the wood heater with its fan is still an efficient way to heat the whole house. We have asked the new managers to provide adequate fire...

As part of our WA break we elected to stay in Dunsborough for four nights. Whalers Cove Villas had a very attractive winter offer of four nights for the price of three. Dunsborough is an ideal base for exploring the Geographe region and the Margaret River region of WA. Dunsoborough is just over 40km from the town of Margaret River....

Thank you for your positive review of Whalers Cove. May is a great month to come to the Margaret River Region as the weather is cooling down a little and most of our villas have wood fires which make it warm and cozy. We hope to see you again soon.
