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...

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.

Thank you for your kind review. The villas are spacious and they have lovely courtyards to sit and catch the sun.

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...

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....

My husband and I recently stayed at Whalers cove. The room was fantastic, very clean. It had everything in it that we needed. We walked everywhere as it was close to town and the beach. The managers were fantastic, very friendly and helpful. I would recommend a stay here to anyone as facilities would suit families or couples.

Thank you very much for your feedback. We are the closest accommodation to the beach in Dunsborough and, yes, the views are spectacular from our beachfront villas. Villa Neptune has the best views and it is always great to see our guests sitting on the verandah gazing out to the beautiful bay. We look forward to seeing you again!
