Whalers cover is located within walking distance of Dunsborough town centre & fronts onto a very protected kid friendly beach.
At low tide the family can wade out in knee deep water to an exposed dry sandbank to play cricket or football.
Very clear water with multiple variations of blues & greens from the shoreline out to the deeper waters.
The resort managers could not have been more helpful & friendly, with suggestions on various restaurants & cafes to visit.
Each villas has its own private courtyard with an abundance of birds from parrots to Bush Dover & others.
Very peaceful with only a 50m to 150 metre walk to the waters edge, depending upon where your Villa is located within the resort.

Didn’t think we’d need the log fire, but some pretty extreme gales and bucketing rain meant it was essential in the evenings! No matter, as a great place to relax with the family. Weather eventually cleared up and proved to be a very convenient location from which to tour the Margaret River region. Plenty to see, do and eat within 5 mins drive thanks to some good advice from Tony. Take plenty of supplies as only the bare minimum provided, but it is self-catering after all.
Very friendly and would certainly visit again.

After a recent stay at Whalers Cove, we immediately rebooked for a friend's daughter's wedding in Yallingup. The refurbished villa (Pioneer) with two queen bedrooms & two updated bathrooms, was ideal as we had family from the UK staying with us. The beachside location and lovely gardens give a relaxed Down South feel, with the excellent cafes, bars and restaurants of bustling Dunsborough a short walk away. Management is very accommodating and happy to help in any way they can.

Room Tip: Pioneer Villa has a tucked-away courtyard and was very peaceful.
