Comfort by the Sea
This was a lovely, well appointed place to anchor as we explored Big Sur and the Monterey Peninsula. Every night after dinner/before sunset we walked the beach and explored tide pools. Only note is that it is nearly always chilly and cloudy in this area.
Five beautiful days watching the seabirds and reading. This is a very peaceful and warm cottage. The views of the Pt Lobos seascapes are amazing. Only thing I would change is a kitchen knife that is not serrated. We will of course come back to this wonderful house and setting.
Whalers Cottage is a very unique property. The location is spectacular, with panoramic views of Monastery Bay and Point Lobos. The cottage is quaint and comfortable. It will remind many of old time beach cottages from their childhood, but it is cozy, well appointed & well maintained. We spent a majority of our time just enjoying the spot. If we went out on day trips, we soon returned , not wanting to miss the play of light on the waves or looking for dolphins and other sea life. This was a special family trip & it couldn’t have been more memorable.
Thank You for staying with us, please come back soon.
Private Serenity with ocean waves
Use your senses with the sight of the ocean and the sound of the waves, they are very captivating. We were able to complete two long walks each day going by the beach or on the different trails.
We enjoyed From Scratch for a breakfast at the Barnyard. Dogs accepted.
Having Ranger, our dog, was the best.
Thank you very much Pat, Sara, Mark and Eileen for your hospitality.
Thank you so much for staying with us, please come back soon.

Most Relaxing Vacation Of Your Life
Staying in the Whalers Cottage was a joy! The cottage was a mixture of historic touches and modern conveniences. It was comfortable and well-stocked with plenty of windows facing the backyard and ocean. We had visits every day from rabbits, herons, quail, hawks, dolphins, and sea otters. The beach was just steps from the backyard but the trees give you a sense of privacy from the public. You are located just a few minutes from the gorgeous Point Lobos Reserve as well as close to other popular locations like the 17 mile drive, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Elkhorn Slough, Bixby Bridge, and whale watching. But you could spend your entire vacation just sitting on the beach or backyard with binoculars in hand, experiencing the most relaxing vacation of your life. If you have not fallen asleep to the sound of ocean waves, then you need to book this cottage at once.
Perfectly Private Retreat
This lovely cottage is the perfect get away without losing convenience to nearby Carmel and Monterrey. The privacy and views are just amazing! It was exciting to see the scenery change from day to day according to the weather. The owners are great to work with and went above and beyond to help us out in any way we needed. Beautiful, homey cottage that felt so comfortable!
