Catalpa Whalers Cove

Bedrooms 4
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

Even at the height of summer holidays, Catalpa at Whalers Cove is a peaceful retreat, walking distance to the village of Dunsborough. Just walk down the steps and across the lawn and you're on the beach.

The safe shallow waters of Geographe Bay are ideal for young children and less confident swimmers to paddle and stroll. See pelicans and water birds, crabs and small stingrays in the sparkling shallows.

This superb location is ideal for exploring the Margaret River Region's world class wineries, restaurants, pristine beaches and the surrounding national parks and natural beauty. You couldn't get closer to the beach without getting wet!

Catalpa is a large, architect designed, rammed earth home comprising 4 bedrooms - two double, one twin and a four bed children's bunkroom, large sunny atrium room, two bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen and laundry. Can easily accommodate six adults and four children.

Rates are based on 4 adults plus $15 per additional adult per night.

We were blown away when we walked into this property. ..beautifully laid out inside with its own cubby hole for the kids...we loved every minute of our stay. 4 mins from Dunsbourgh by foot and right at the ocean's doorstep. ..this was the perfect place to show off the South West to our English rellies. My partner is in a wheelchair and we found the owners and the property more than accommodating. We will definitely be back!!

Catalpa is amazing and in a perfect spot! The owners were extremely approachable via email and went above and beyond giving us details of how to shave a little bit of time off the trip as detours were in place. The accomodation is fabulous for kids and adults. Would definitely rebook. Jan 2016

Absolutely Magical

  • 5 of 5

There really aren't enough words to describe how truly lovely this villa is! Our eyes lit up with excitement when we walked into the reality of this beautiful villa and combined with the perfect beachfront location it was luxury. Although we only stayed a short time this visit, I will definitely be booking a longer holiday here. Right from the moment I submitted an enquiry, I was made to feel very welcome and although my booking request was quite specific on this occasion I was not turned away as many places did but was offered an arrangement which suited both parties.

I have absolutely no hesitation with recommending Catalpa, we just think it is the bees knees!
