Carmel Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

Nestled into a beautiful forest setting overlooking Hatton Canyon, you will find our rustic guest cottage perfect for your Carmel getaway. Moonglow is attached to the last wall of our 3 car garage overlooking the canyon on our forested half acre lot and shares only the driveway with the main house. Everything you need from a weekend to a week, and only a few minutes to downtown Carmel.

The beautiful bedroom has a double bed, a bathroom with lovely tile shower, kitchenette and living room with a welcoming corner fireplace. There is also a trundle bed in the living room (converts to two twins) plus a bistro table with 2 chairs, a dresser with drawers, a chair with footstool, a flat screen television with DVD player and wireless broadband Internet access.

A gorgeous deck surrounds the cottage with plenty of seating.a barbecue for outdoor enjoyment and a heater for cool evenings. The patio has a table and 4 chairs for outdoor dining. Steps lead to the upper deck where a wonderful private outdoor hot tub awaits for special evenings under the stars.

For the active traveler Moonglow offers equipment for hiking, biking, kayaking, tennis, golf and the beach. Walk or bike out the door to unspoiled Hatton canyon.

This is a unique spot for those that enjoy the tranquility of the forest, yet want to be minutes away from Carmel’s beautiful white sand beach and many artistic shops and restaurants.

Complimentary passes to the world famous Monterey Bay Aquarium are included!

Moonglow is smoke free. No pets, please.

Our romance began in 1961 when Diane came to Carmel to be a 4th grade teacher at Carmel River School. She met Chuck who had just left the Navy's Blue Angels and was enrolled in the Naval Postgraduate School. In 1964 we were married and began a life together. Through the years, as a Navy family, we lived many places, but always returned to Carmel to visit our old friends and to bask in the beauty of the area. Of course, we always wished we had bought a place when we first lived here, and never really thought we would ever live in Carmel

Chuck and Diane Elliott purchased this cottage in 2000

In 2004 we fell in love with Sundance, a rustic and secluded home on a half acre overlooking Hatton Canyon. We immediately bought it, sold our home in Del Mar, and became Carmelites. We love it here and have never looked back. Our family and friends enjoyed staying in the guest cottage, and after our son built a magnificent deck around it we christened it 'Moonglow' and decided to offer it as a vacation rental. As you can see from the guestbook, it has been very popular.

Moonglow is close to everything in Carmel, the Monterey Peninsula, Carmel Valley and Big Sur, yet secluded and quiet.

Home away from home

We immensely appreciated all of the small touches in our cozy cottage. Like a home away from home!

The weather was wonderful as the intermittent showers cleaned the air for some gorgeous sunshine.

Loved the Aquarium and our sojourn to Big Sur. What's not to like about the Peninsula? Beautiful country.

Chuck & Diane,

Heather & I really loved your place. Just what we needed to get away for a few days. So close to so many fun things to do and a great base camp to explore the Big Sur coastline!

Thank you!
