It’s the long weekend and you want to get away. The school holidays are looming and you want to make sure you’re family vacation destination is child friendly. You’re planning a romantic retreat and you want somewhere that’s intimate and private. Whatever your reason to leave the hustle and bustle of the city, here’s a place to meet your every need.

Whalers Cove Villas Dunsborough, found 3hrs drive south of Perth, are located on the tranquil shore of Geographe Bay’s magnificent beachfront and nestled in lovingly landscaped gardens. The 20 luxuriously appointed self-contained villas have their own distinctive character; each resembling a boat shed and referred to by name, not number. This obvious difference in accommodation standards is a purposeful link to the regions historic past.

For 100yrs, from 1790 – 1890, whalers operated in WA waters as the whaling industry thrived. American whalers in particular where extremely active in the south west early in the 19th century and Geographe Bay was an important base for them. That is how the villas came by their names, each one after an American whaling ship. But that’s where the historical link ends. Thankfully today’s interest in whales has turned to observation and admiration of these gentle giants of the sea. And with their numbers steadily increasing each year, it’s not uncommon to see them along this part of the WA coastline. It’s best during September – December as they travel south.

But whale watching isn’t the only attraction close to these exclusive villas. Just a short walk down a convenient path takes you right into the heart of Dunsborough’s town center. And if you do want to venture further out you’ll find award-winning wineries, breathtaking scenery and all the southwest is famous for only a short drive away.

Each villa comes with both fully equipped kitchen and laundry, if you are on a budget and want to do things yourself; as well as all the mod coms - TV, DVD player, VCR, CD player. And if you really want to splash out, owner Dawni has contacts and information on top suppliers for breakie baskets and BBQ packs, plus services like caterers, masseurs and even babysitters, so mum and dad can enjoy a well deserved night out.

Whalers Cove Villas Dunsborough come in a range of sizes and can sleep up to 8ppl.
