Frequent so-happy visitor
Carmel has always been a favorite place - and for about twenty years, every time I go to Carmel, I make an effort to stay only in this wonderful property. I have stayed just a week, and taken the house for a month at a time a number of times. Both are fantastic.
It is just outside town, feels extremely private, with a wonderful view of Point Lobos and of the water. There is a beach just off the private yard, and a very long trail along the beach or up on a trail that leads into Carmel.
Honestly, everyone I have ever gone there with spends most of the time cooking meals, sitting around on the decks outside or sitting around in front of the fire inside. Be sure to ask for two loads of wood, because you won't want to leave the house very often!
· By Texas visitor from Fort Worth, Texas on 2/11/2010 for a stay in 1/1/2010 Whalers Cottage #2
We are always apprehensive when booking a vacation rental online from photos however the Whaler's Cottage was everything we could have asked for.
The night before our arrival we stayed at Post Ranch which has always been one of our favorite getaways however as much as we loved Post the Cottage was so enchanting from the time we drove down the private road. The house is immaculate. I must say I am a cootie freak and I was perfectly at ease and comfortable in the home. The beds and linens were super comfortable..the kitchen and baths well equipped. We were even able to order fire wood waiting for us so we had the fireplace going every day.
What is really amazing however is the location. Extremely private in a large fenced property with two other houses right on the beach. The views out every window and the sound of the waves were mesmerizing. To be able to step out your door and take a stroll on the beach is well worth the rental cost. There is also a public walkway that starts next to the property that leads along the beach right to the center of Carmel which we absolutely loved.
Obviously we can't say enough about what this family has preserved generation to generation and we felt privileged to be allowed to share it even for a few days.
We will definitely be returning as soon as we can!
Although we have vacationed in Carmel many, many times over the past 30+ years, this is the first time we have stayed at The Whaler's Cottage. And from now on, whenever we return, we will never stay anywhere else if given the chance. The beauty of it is, you usually have to get out the tour brochures and drive to scenic outlooks. When staying at this cottage, you're actually living in them! It is heaven on earth. It is comfortable with a well equipped kitchen, laundry and nice bed linens. This historic old property is just lovely and the owners have made it feel like home. We were there in November and every day brought new sea life which was a lot of fun. Dolphins, seals, pelicans, beautiful sunsets......truly wonderful. Do not hesitate to book this property.
We stayed at the Whaler's Cottage at the end of September this year...we absolutely loved it! The views from the home onto the beach and the rugged coast are stunning. The house had everything we needed and was in a great location. We also loved the history of the home; very interesting. We hope to come back to the area, and will definitely stay at the Whaler's Cottage if we are so lucky!
We first visited the Whaler's Cottage last year to celebrate a 70th birthday. We had family visit and what a wonderful time we had. We cooked most of our dinners and unlike other rentals the knives were sharp (very important) and if not, there was a knife sharpener.
This year we invited a couple from Indiana that are old friends of ours. They could not believe the location and views that we experienced. Every morning one of them said "oh, another day of ocean TV!". Lots to do in surrounding area if you are not golfers. We loved the trails from the cottage down to the river and back. Point Lobos state reserve is not to be missed. Also, we were able to see butterflies in Pacific Grove. Again we ate meals in the evening at the cottage and marveled at the well stocked kitchen.
We like three restaurants: The Red House, Fish Wives and not to be missed, The Roadhouse for shrimp and grits.
Great beds, great views, and very, very clean.
We will plan on a 2017 visit.
A great week at an unbelievable place. One of the most beautiful settings on earth.
This property could not be better located, away from the road and facing directly on to Monastery beach and the bay.
Superb views in a well appointed property. Our family were blown away with the stunning location.
Local to shops, Carmel, Point Lobos nature reserve, all very convenient within 5-10 minutes drive.
Would happily recommend this property.
