  • Comfortable in Carmel-by-the-Sea

    "Fair Oaks is a comfortable, quant, and well appointed home. The property manage, Kim, was outstanding as she inquired if everything was as I wished and if there was anything she could do. She was quick to respond with the few questions I had. She was always pleasant and professional. The house was immaculate. The home is well equipped and it is clear someone put a lot of effort to ensure that every conceivable need is accommodated. All the beds are very comfortable. There is a high quality foldout sofa bed in the guest cottage that is like a regular bed when opened, and not your typical sofa bed. I'm glad the owner went the expense to provide such an upscale sofa. The rooms and guest cottage are a good size and allow guest privacy and well furnished enough for them to be separated from the group for 'alone' time. The three bathrooms are modern and well equipped with soap products, towels and paper products. They are also a nice size. The bathrobes in each bedroom are a nice touch. The great room easily accommodates eight people for watching TV and/or conversation. The home is furnished with attractive antiques that provide very good eating, closet and draw space. The wall decorations are eclectic and charming with each day you notice something new and interesting. The garden is large, beautifully landscaped, and has several areas to sit outside to enjoy it. The large trees and paths make the area enchanting. I am very glad to have stayed here for a month would have stayed another month if I could. Great place."

  • Nice Getaway

    "A lovely, secluded spot in Big Sur. Overall a great stay, but a few specifics: Pros -Nice décor—clearly a lot of thought and care has gone in to it -Plush towels, robes, & linens -Eclectic selection of books, music, movies, and games -Good location, quiet, ‘unplugged’ and private -Soaking tub and great shower water pressure (ahhh) -Pet friendly -New washer and dryer -Awesome toaster oven Cons -Awkward layout (as others have mentioned). Not so bad for one family, but wouldn’t work well for sharing with multiple families or grown children. Non-solid doors (slatted) and lots of hard floors also doesn’t give much sound privacy. -Firewood provided inside was so damp it was almost impossible to light, then when we finally got it going it popped and smoked terribly the whole time. -Some minor maintenance issues (burned out/missing lights, sticking drawers) and spots where things are showing their age -Steep driveway, we did slide a bit on the first attempt but then got the hang of it -Nowhere for trash/dog poop/diapers. We didn’t try calling the caretaker because it seemed so minor to bother someone on a weekend about."

    "We are always apprehensive when booking a vacation rental online from photos however the Whaler's Cottage was everything we could have asked for. The night before our arrival we stayed at Post Ranch which has always been one of our favorite getaways however as much as we loved Post the Cottage was so enchanting from the time we drove down the private road. The house is immaculate. I must say I am a cootie freak and I was perfectly at ease and comfortable in the home. The beds and linens were super comfortable..the kitchen and baths well equipped. We were even able to order fire wood waiting for us so we had the fireplace going every day. What is really amazing however is the location. Extremely private in a large fenced property with two other houses right on the beach. The views out every window and the sound of the waves were mesmerizing. To be able to step out your door and take a stroll on the beach is well worth the rental cost. There is also a public walkway that starts next to the property that leads along the beach right to the center of Carmel which we absolutely loved. Obviously we can't say enough about what this family has preserved generation to generation and we felt privileged to be allowed to share it even for a few days. We will definitely be returning as soon as we can!"

  • cozy, clean, convenient to aquarium & beach

    "The yellow cottage was quiet and comfortable for our little family. We really appreciated the extra value of aquarium passes and welcoming bottle of wine! Parking was easy, though we walked most everywhere. Thank you for the recommendations for Goodie's deli and Crema for brunch. Our extended family was staying at Asilomar, but we needed more space and a kitchen, and this little cottage was perfect for our needs."
