Overview

About the property

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 and 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...

Reviewer Comments:

My husband and I have rented many places along the Fort Bragg & Mendocino Coast and this was by far the best. Very quiet and private from neighbors. This home has easy access to the beach, there are a lot of cement steps to get down to the beach but they are not steep. I am slightly disabled and was able to climb the stairs 3 times a day. If you can't climb the stairs there is a beautiful sitting area over looking the beach so someone could enjoy seeing their family down there without feeling too separated. Finnigan our golden was the happiest he has ever been on this mostly private beach. ( we saw no crowds ever and the people we did see were some of the friendliest ) The home is rustic, charming and was very clean - BIG kudos to the folks who care for the home in between renters. I am fussy about cob webs and there were none inside or outside. The home is well equipped throughout. This rental offers a GIANT TV with hundreds of blu-ray movies to select from. Not junky movies, but 5 star movies and up. The home owner went so far as to catalog all the movies ( which are in alphabetical order on the shelves) in a handy book so you can sit on the comfy sofa and select your movie. It's a very nice 'movie theater experience' set up. There wasn't internet, but my cell phone & iPad worked just fine. No problem getting a signal. For us this home offered everything we needed and we didn't eat out once - you just want to spend all your time there. The king bed in the master was comfortable and comes with a full view of the ocean. Listening to the waves at night was magical. Beautiful sunsets every night and we saw two whales pass right in front of us ! We had a charming fox visit us as well as a young deer. ( Due to the wildlife we never left Finnigan to wander in the beautiful mostly fenced yard ) This was a fabulous place to stay !! We will rent this home again if they will have us !

Whale Rock is a beautiful house in a great location with a fantastic view of the ocean! We had sunny weather during our 4 day stay in early April 2017. The house was very clean. The kitchen perfectly stocked. The perch was great for morning coffee. We usually rent homes further south of Ft. Bragg, but liked this house so much that we will come back again!! The property management company was very easy to work with. This is a great rental home!

Reviewer Comments:

We enjoyed the short easy walk down to the beach and our time on the beach. View was outstanding. We did not realize, however, it is an off-leash beach so we did have to take care with our dog who was on a leash. I also submitted some additional comments in an e-mail to the property management team for their review.

This was such a lovely and comfortable place - well appointed and we were lucky with the weather, but would have enjoyed it regardless. The house is undergoing some upgrades which will be nice when finished.

Great stay. However - there was some construction going on in the master bedroom office - would have been nice if they had notified us ahead of time. We have been to this house many times over the years and do sometimes use that small room.

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...
