    Very nice place. Will definitely consider for the future.

  • Very poorly run

    I would not recommend whalers cove to my worst enemy. My mom complained numerous times about not getting her pain meds in a timely fashion. After she passed I scheduled salvation army to pick up items at her place. I made arrangements with Maureen the women in charge to let them in the apartment days ahead of time. Then the day of pickup they would not let salvation army into the apartment to remove items. Even when I was on the phone giving verbal permission. Whalers cove response was it was miscommunication and hopefully I can reschedule and still have everything out by the end of the month since my mom passed away. Very poorly run and I am not scrambling to make moving arrangements again. They can remove the items themselves and if they try to bill me they will get nothing. Very poorly run. And I also contacted them twice to get a removal fee for two items that were to old to be donated and after two weeks they still didn't get back to me. Please do not send loved ones to Whalers cove.
