  • Wonderful Beachside Retreat

    "We had a great time at this vacation rental. The view is unbeatable and the layout of the condo worked well for our family. At one point we had 9 adults and 5 kids in the unit and we were all comfortable. Everyone loved staying here. We watched whales frolic in the ocean right off the point, walked for miles on the beach, boogey boarded, made sand castles, played tennis, cooked great meals in the well stocked kitchen (needs a cookie sheet though), and drove to Monterey one day to eat out. The owners were easy to deal with, just sometimes seemed a bit slow to respond to my emails. I am a bit impatient though. WE had a great time and everyone hopes to return next year."

  • .....And then there was the Whaler's Cottage

    "Although we have vacationed in Carmel many, many times over the past 30+ years, this is the first time we have stayed at The Whaler's Cottage. And from now on, whenever we return, we will never stay anywhere else if given the chance. The beauty of it is, you usually have to get out the tour brochures and drive to scenic outlooks. When staying at this cottage, you're actually living in them! It is heaven on earth. It is comfortable with a well equipped kitchen, laundry and nice bed linens. This historic old property is just lovely and the owners have made it feel like home. We were there in November and every day brought new sea life which was a lot of fun. Dolphins, seals, pelicans, beautiful sunsets......truly wonderful. Do not hesitate to book this property."

  • Fantastic!

    "Over the years, I’ve rented a number of homes thru Homeaway and I can honestly say that this was the best ever. The house is right on the harbor and has an open floor plan that makes it quite nice for a large group to be together whether you are at the game table, in the kitchen, in the dining room, or living room. The home has four very comfortable bedrooms with a sauna and private deck for the master bedroom. Then there’s is a fully-stocked kitchen and a number of televisions throughout the house with cable TV, internet access and Wifi. There’s also a large wrap around deck around two sides of the house with plenty of deck seating and two barbecues that made it fun for dining. We enjoyed using the number of bikes, including a surrey bike, as well as a four-person paddle boat and the kayaks! Next time, we plan to include the optional electric duffy boat. Mandalay Bay Beach is a nice 10-minute walk away (though you do have to cross Harbor Boulevard), as well as the Sunday morning Channel Islands Harbor Farmer’s Market which has a nice variety of local produce. I myself am a golfer and enjoy playing the two challenging courses at the River Ridge Golf Course just up the street, but there was so much here to do that I never even unpacked my golf clubs! Thank you, Jackie, for the use of your beautiful home."

  • An Amazing Property That Fit Our Needs Perfectly

    "My wife and I have stayed in numerous VRBO properties and this one has become one of our favorites. We wanted to stay on the Central Coast in California and more specifically in Avila Beach and we took a chance with this location. First, the owners are gracious, wonderful to work with and made securing the dates we wanted an easy task. The "apartment' is a large two bedroom, two story spacious place to spend some time. Our favorite spot in the home was the front balcony which has a spectacular view of the bay in Avila Beach. An additional advantage is how close it is to everything in the small town. Once we parked our car in the garage, we did not take it out again for the five days we were there. A quick walk down to the town and everything we needed was there. Besides the comfortable design of the home and the many amenities that our there, we particularly enjoyed the large kitchen. We tend to start the day cooking a nice breakfast and then enjoy a leisurely morning. Of course, we ate breakfast on the balcony every morning enjoying the view. We will definitely be back for another stay. This was a wonderful find and experience for us."
