Overview

North Coast California House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

There are vacations where you run as fast as you can to visit every historic site,shop in every boutique store, eat at every restaurant you can find... You wear yourself out and down… you become frazzled. In just a few days you're dying to go home where you can rest and relax.

Well, that doesn't happen at Whale Rock .... not here !! You won't want to leave Whale Rock because every moment of the day is special here - like the early morning light over the ocean and beach - sleep late if you want to) - like soft afternoons and walks on the beach or along the river (or you can take a nap - aren't you on vacation?)

You’ll like the peaceful early evenings... a time for cocktails or sipping wine while overlooking the beach from the private deck above the beach - called "The Perch" - and the rolling surf of the Pacific ... and, of course, like at sunset and strolls on the beach .... why would you want to leave Whale Rock?

In this comfortable beach-style home, you'll marvel at the views. Even the winter storms... and we sometimes get fierce ones... can be mesmerizing. It's like living on the edge. Stay in and read or nap or have lunch all day or walk down to the beach and explore. Whale Rock is a rarity - a beach house vacation rental...

Whale Rock, with 3 bedrooms, sleeps 6...

Reviewer Comments:

Fabulous! Spectacular view home and added bonus of beach access. Low tide makes for a great walk and picking up sand dollars was fun. We ate in all four days/nights, except one. Kitchen was well stocked with cookware, etc. Only thing I couldn't find while we were there was a steamer basket. Balled up aluminum foil in the bottom of the pot was perfect for steaming our lobster tails. We would definitely stay at Whale Rock again!

Reviewer Comments:

The property was all that was promised and more. I took my 95 year old mother and my stroke victim husband, who is in a wheelchair, and everything worked great. The house felt like home when we walked in - welcoming and warm! We really enjoyed the views and spent many hours on the perch. Weather was beautiful - We did have some unexpected guests - I believe a family of raccoons is living under the porch or side area. We saw lots of birds, a fox, and beautiful blue heron. My mother's little dog enjoyed playing on the beach and we loved the walking in the sand. The only problem we had was with the television. It had sound but no picture. The manager brought us out a small one but we didn't use it much - read books, worked puzzles, and used the hot tub! Wonderful place and can't say enough about it.

Reviewer Comments:

This was our second time staying at Whale Rock. Last year we stayed for 3 days and that was not near enough. This is a beautiful house in a fantastic location. The fact that the stairway is adjesent to the house makes this an even better location. We spent a lot of time on the beach as well as the deck overlooking the ocean and beach. Whale and seal sightings added to our joy. The living room couches and dining area chairs are way beyond there useful lives and the padding is in very sad condition. Other than that everything about the house is great. The master bedroom bed is very comfortable.

We stayed the first weekend in April and got the best weather ever. This home is very warm and friendly the moment you walk in the door. The Kitchen is well stocked and we wanted for nothing-except salt- so we left a box. I know this is a property that allows pets. but the garage area stank so bad of urine that we could not use the ping pong table- I would suggest removing the carpet. there were cobwebs throughout the house and major dust bunnies behind the couch and TV. -All in all it was a great stay I just thing a more thorough cleaning is in order.

Reviewer Comments:

My 93 year old grandmother is from Sacramento valley and we made a sneaky plan to bring her to the coast & surprise her with a 3 night stay at Whale Rock. She was in awe the whole time we were there. The views of the ocean were absolutely stunning. We made fabulous food for every meal in the well appointed kitchen, watched our favorite shows on the very nice entertainment center, and of course soaked in the sunshine on the platform overlooking the ten mile river flowing out into the sea. Wildlife was abundant--we watched the whales spouting as they headed north, seals swimming up river, geese nesting on sea stacks, blue herons hunting gophers. Everyone was comfortable in their beds each night and the wood stove made it real cozy. We want to start a tradition of a yearly stay at this magical place! Thank you Mendocino Preferred and staff for your part in facilitating all the sweet memories we made at Whale Rock :)

WHALE ROCK - ON THE BEACH

Whale Rock is one of the very few vacation rentals on the Coast with a beach-front setting... most oceanfront homes here are sited on high bluff tops, with no access to a beach. Whale Rock is unique in that it is sited on a low bluff with panoramic views of the rolling ocean.... and with steps leading down to a wide sandy beach on the ocean... and along the Ten Mile River. Whale Rock, with three bedrooms and two baths is suitable for up to six people.

There are vacations where you run as fast as you can to visit every historic site, shop in every boutique store, eat at every restaurant you can find... you wear yourself out and down��� you become frazzled. In just a few days you're dying to go home where you can rest and relax. Well, that doesn't happen at Whale Rock .... not here !!

You won't want to leave Whale Rock because every moment of the day is special here, like the early morning light over the ocean and beach (OK.... sleep late if you want to)… like soft afternoons and walks on the beach or along the river (or you can take a nap - aren't you on vacation?) … like the peaceful early evenings... a time for cocktails or sipping wine while overlooking the beach from the private deck above the beach - called 'The Perch' ...and the rolling surf of the Pacific.

... and, of course, like at sunset and strolls on the beach .... why would you want to leave Whale Rock?

In this comfortable beach-style home, you'll marvel at the views. Even the winter storms... and we sometimes get fierce ones... can be mesmerizing. It's like living on the edge. Stay in and read or nap or have lunch all day long.... or walk down to the beach and explore.

Whale Rock is a rarity - a beach house vacation rental...
