Overview

Fort Bragg 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:

Wonderful!! The house, the exceptional view from every window in the house was unbelievable. The inside decorations of birds & animals around the ceiling rafters was a great touch. The yard garden area was in bloom and with the slight fog we had the colors just popped from all the flowers. My husband had a new camera to try out and got some fantastic shots of the house, flowers and beach from the property. Our two small dogs had a great time exploring the yard and beach and with designated doggie places, had no problem with clean-up. Everything worked great and we can't wait to come back. Only downer was that on our last day when I came out to take the path down to the beach, someone had stolen the rope that provided the handrail for the steps down. Still, got in the car and drove down to the public access and still got in our walk. Hope you get it replaced soon. Also, you might possibly install some type of lighting in the master bath shower. It was very dark in stall trying to take a shower after dark. Really, this is an incredible house and no one could ask for a better location and view of the beach. I have already recommended it to many people and with your internet site they can view the house almost immediately. Thanks for a great vacation.

My family and I had a wonderful time here. The views are spectacular. And just step out the door and you're practically on the beach. The kids loved playing in the surf and sand A very peaceful and restful place. We enjoyed every minute of our time here. Only 10 minutes or so to shopping and restaurants. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who love the ocean. My grandchildren want me to sale my home on Lake Almanor and buy a house on the ocean now and didn't want to leave. The house is very nice and well furnished with just about everything you need. We will most like rent this house again next year. I just can't say enough about this place. We will return.

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.

Map

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...
