      Gorgeous views in private, peaceful setting

      This cozy, historic cottage has amazing location- with amazing views, access to beach and walking trails, as well as within a quick drive to shops and restaurants. Walking through the front door, the ocean view stopped me in my tracks. It is so incredibly beautiful, and changes throughout the day and as the weather shifts. The scenery alone is worth a stay here. The main living room/dining room has the widest view, but the kitchen and master bedroom have similar views. The master bedroom includes a chair and ottoman, should you want to enjoy the views from an elevated position during the day. The cottage is well furnished with everything you'd need. In the backyard, there are 3 picnic/patio tables, with several sets of additional chairs, so there's always a perfect place to eat a meal, read a book, or just sit and watch the waves and wildlife. Even though the cottage is over 100 years old, it has been updated with 2 bathrooms and modern kitchen. There is enough sitting at the 2 dining tables to accommodate at least 10 people, if you are renting more than one of the cottages and want to have group meals. If you like exploring, you can walk on the trails that go out the backyard gate to the south. You can stay up off the beach for a brisker walk, or walk in the sand and rocks if you are more in the exploring mood. (We did both!) The trail will take you to the Carmel River, which you can then loop around and take back to the cottage for about a 40 minute walk. If you are looking for something more, drive the mile or so down the highway to Point Lobos State Reserve ($10 entry). Go early to get a parking space, as there are a limited number, and pay the $2 extra for a map. There are limited locations to picnic, so pack a meal, but be respectful and plan your hike so that you can eat in one of the picnic locations. This reserve is so beautiful and you will appreciate the serenity of it all. The best of Carmel dining is only a 5-10 minute drive away. We highly recommend Casanova for an unforgettable experience. There are plenty of shops and galleries there too, if you in the shopping mood. If you are looking for a relaxing place with the sounds of waves crashing, and views to die for, while not being but a few minutes away from civilization, this is the ideal spot. We love this cottage, the location, and the views. We will definitely be back. Thank you so much!

        A Special Time Together

        This was an excellent get-away for dear friends! We were thrilled with the homey, inviting atmosphere, well-appointed kitchen, and comfortable beds. The views were wonderful from every window facing the ocean, and the short walk to the beach opened up to a lovely bay. The location was a perfect starting point for exploring the surrounding tourist areas. If we are blessed, we look forward to going back someday when we can get everyone together again.

          Whalers Cottage is a gem!

          This place is magical....best location in Carmel. Relaxing and secluded but you can get to everything you want to see and do in Carmel, Monterey, Big Sur, etc. The history of the property is amazing and the owners have preserved their family's story in this historic home. We sat on the chairs and the deck in the yard overlooking the ocean every morning and every evening at sunset and say otters and sea lions. Zen historic and picturesque!

            Wonderful Oceanfront

            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.

              Spectacular Spot!

              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.
