Guestbook comments from the owner

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!

.....And then there was the Whaler's Cottage

  • 5 of 5

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.

Fabulous Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

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 want to make the Whalers cottage an annual visit.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Stunning Location

  • 3 of 5

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.

Magic at Monastery Beach

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in all three cottages for more than a decade. Each visit is better than the prior year's. Our children were small when we started renting and they're now in their early twenties. Our family and our friends' families all look forward to these escapes. Highlights are night hikes along the coast, Point Lobos hikes, Big Sur hikes, Palo Corona hikes, Mill Creek hikes, Garland Ranch hikes, and Monterey Bay crab.....Recently we've spotted condors, dolphins, whales of several types, otters, sea lions, and seals. Mass across the street at the Monastery is special for those so inclined. A very special place that has been cared for lovingly. Thank you!
