There are reasons why Poipu is one of Hawaii’s most popular resort destinations. Located at the southern tip of Kauai, Poipu is blessed with year-round sunshine, award-winning beaches, championship golf courses, exciting shopping venues, and fabulous accommodations. One such property is Whalers Cove, an intimate yet luxurious 39-unit condominium resort.
Whalers Cove offers one- and two-bedroom accommodations with at least 1,300 square feet of living space. Each oceanfront or ocean-view unit includes a full kitchen, a washer/dryer, a private lanai, a Jacuzzi tub, cable television and more. On-site amenities include a heated swimming pool and three barbecue areas.
Services include daily housekeeping, free local telephone calls, complimentary daily newspaper, and free Internet access. In addition, an on-site concierge can assist guests with a variety of needs, from tee time reservations to tour arrangements.
The resort is named after the nearby sea cove, a favorite spot for divers and snorkelers. Brilliantly colored reef fish and sea turtles are known to inhabit the cove’s pristine waters. Also, minutes away are Poipu’s famous beaches, including Poipu Beach Park, named “America’s Best Beach” in 2001 by coastal research expert Stephen Leatherman (aka “Dr. Beach”).
Staying at Whalers Cove, of course, means being immersed in the beauty of Poipu resort, where guests can enjoy horseback riding, swimming, tennis, shopping, golf and more. The Poipu Bay Golf Course and Kiahuna Golf Club—two challenging layouts designed by noted course architect Robert Trent Jones Jr.—are both in the area.
Whalers Cove is a unique hideaway ideal for honeymooners or small families. One vacationer remarked, “This place was the greatest. The staff at Whalers Cove is by far the best. They took care of our every need. But the best thing was the view. We even saw whales!
