The kitchen is really well equipped which makes eating in cheap, easy and fun!
The main bedroom opens to veranda facing the mountain. Crisp embroidered linen, down pillows - bliss
A sunny spot for morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening
The gas barbecue allows for informal outside meals
1x1m shower, marble vanity/floor tiles, underfloor heating and heated towel rails - pretty and warm
Both bedrooms are quiet and have plenty of cupboard space. The beds are really comfortable.

“Paradise with an ocean view”
Reviewed 30 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Whalehaven is a beautifully decorated, very comfortable apartment overlooking the ocean. We had a wonderful stay with our two young children, minutes walk from the beach, transport and excellent restaurants. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful with advice. Highly recommended.

“Stunning view and prime location”
Reviewed 22 February 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We had a wonderful week over Christmas in Whalehaven. The pictures cannot do justice to the breathtaking view from the front room. Louise met us on arrival and departure and was very relaxed and welcoming generally. Nice personal touches like a bottle of wine in the fridge and coffee. We ended up getting takeaways from the Kalk Bay restaurants and eating in the apartment as this afforded a better view than many of the restaurants! We would love to visit again.

“Perfect location”
Reviewed 21 January 2015 for a stay in November 2013

We stayed here for about 3 weeks and it was perfect for our little family (3 year old). The location is ideal. Lots of excellent restaurants within walking distance. Ice cream shop a stones throw away! Inside had all we needed. Washing machine was an added bonus. View is amazing! Can't recommend this place enough.

“Everything you need for a relaxing holiday!”

We were so happy with the apartment, which is not only so beautifully decorated, but the owner has thought of everything you could possibly need to enjoy your holiday. The view from the lounge room is stunning, making it an ideal place to relax and read a book if you don't feel like venturing out. The bedrooms are at the back of the apartment, so away from the any potential noise from the road and have a lovely serene view of the mountains behind. Very comfortable beds so that you can get the rest you need!
