Our Favorite Place on Earth
Whales Rendezvous is undoubtedly our favorite place on earth! We recently spent 3 weeks at this lovely ‘slice of heaven by the sea’, for our 25th anniversary. There are simply no words to describe the feeling of peace and calm that overwhelm you while staying here. It is truly a magical place, and there’s no place we’d rather be. Ever since returning home, our hearts and souls have longed to return to this amazing place. With spectacular views of the ocean, whales spouting, diving, spy hopping, and breaching mere feet from the rocks below, and gorgeous sunsets that will fill you with such a sense of wonderment...it’s simply magnificent! And, you will not find warmer, kinder, friendlier people than your hosts, Joe and Dian! They have thoughtfully anticipated your every need and comfort, and made it available at your fingertips. We truly love Whales Rendezvous, our favorite place on earth!
Great spot to watch the waves and, with any luck, a whale or two . .
From almost anywhere in either suite, you feel as if you're right on the water, with front-row seats to nature at her best -- a full moon, a pink sky at night and in the morning, the crashing waves, and yes, those frisky whales. The bed was extremely comfortable and we enjoyed the fire pit and terrace, too, where we sat and enjoyed wine and the view with my husband's sister and brother in law, who took the other suite (there are only two). If it's an issue, the Rose Suite does not have a door on the bathroom (the other suite does). Walking distance to very good restaurants (Tidal Raves and Horn) and a good breakfast place (Gracie's Sea Hag). We were there for 3 nights -- perfect.
Gorgeous views in a stunning setting
Staying at the Whales Rendezvous was the highlight of our two week tour of Oregon. The view from our apartment was amazing, there also are 2 outdoor sitting areas that are your own private viewing areas. The owners Diana and Joe go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay. Simply said you have to stay here on your trip down the Oregon coast.
The Best of Luxury & Nature
This place is a beautiful little hideaway directly on the hillside overlooking the Pacific ocean. During the summer/early fall months when the whales are in Depoe Bay, you can watch them directly below you from your own private balcony!!! We saw a mother & baby! I have stayed here as a solitude/escape, with friends, & as a couple...all equally wonderful! My go to spot for sanctuary...the owners are beautiful gentle souls & amazing as well. I give this place my highest reccomendation!!!
Home away from home...
My husband and I recently celebrated our 26th anniversary here at the Whales Rendevous. This was our 3rd stay over the years and as always, it is a little slice of heaven by the ocean. Spotless, cozy and super comfortable...just drop your bags inside and go look for whales off your private deck. Love waking up to the sound of the surf and cuddling into bed after enjoying a fire in your personal fire pit. Owners seem more like friends than owner/caretakers. Fun shops, amazing food and bluff trails within easy walking distance. One’s inclination is to keep this haven a secret, but that just wouldn’t be nice. Absolutely love this little hidden gem by the sea.
