CARMEL VALLEY'S MOST CHARMING SPOT - VINTAGE OAKS COTTAGE

Carmel Valley House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Charming, unique, quiet and private, a real sanctuary. This charming rustic yet elegant home is located on 1 1/2 acres of gorgeous oak and sycamore trees, beside a seasonal creek right in the heart of Carmel Valley Village. The cottage is 800 sf, private (VERY private) home on a very large and secluded property, NOT a guesthouse on someone's property. One bedroom with queen bed, full kitchen, living room, gorgeous bathroom all done in Mexican tile, and a large den.

Many artistic touches grace this home, from unique handmade lighting (the owner is a lighting designer) to antiques, to western memorabilia. A well-mannered dog is welcome (at no extra charge!). You will feel miles away, yet Carmel Valley Village is a 2 minute drive (or 20 minute lovely wooded walk) away!

This lovely post adobe home is completely furnished and turn-key for your stay. Everything is provided, from furnishings, linens, kitchen ware. Enjoy the book and movie library. Lush expansive grounds are perfect for relaxation or get-togethers with friends.

This is a walkers/hikers dream where its warm and sunny with a country setting away from the coastal fog. Walk a mile down our country road to the best swimming hole on the Carmel River, and 1 ½ mile to the best dining and wine tasting of Carmel Valley Village.

Just 20 minutes to Carmel and Carmel Beach, Monterey, Pebble Beach, Pacific Grove, Big Sur, Laguna Seca, Quail Lodge, horse back riding, world class wine tasting, world glass golf, Monterey Jazz festival, Monetery Bay Aquarium are all minutes away - oh, so much to do and see, and for such a small price!

Available for vacation rental or short or long term rental.

You will LOVE it here and want to stay forever, everyone does!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Pamela,



We would like to thank you for sharing your home with us. It was a real treat to be able to stay in a home and garden, which has had such loving attention. We have totally enjoyed it. You left sufficient gems that we would look up and find something new and interesting and yet not feel overpowered by it. Just the perfect mix. Your lamps in particular are enchanting. Unfortunately I had to work while at the cottage and the WiFi has made my life so much easier, and if one has to work, this is a nice place to do it.

Many many thanks. We will leave your house in great shape for your next guest.

We moved to gorgeous Carmel Valley from San Francisco right after we were married in 2000. We lived in our home until 2008, enjoying riding our horses, playing and singing in the local restaurants (we are musicians and artists), and making life-long friends. In 2008 we moved to Los Angeles, but did not want to lose our magical home. Renting it out for vacation rentals allows us to visit from time to time, never often enough. We know you will enjoy it as much as we do, everyone does! Pamela and Bruce Forman

Pamela Forman purchased this house in 2001

We fell in love with the classic Carmel Valley post adobe 'early California' styling of this home. The adobe bricks were handmade right here in Carmel Valley in the 1950s. But what we love most is the large piece of land our cottage sits on. So many areas to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Coming from 'the city' it is a little slice of heaven . . .

It's so peaceful and private here - the view from every window is gorgeous - trees, gardens, hills. Wonderful walks right outside the door, up the canyon to the Kahn Ranch extension of Garland Park, down the canyon to the glorious river. The town of Carmel Valley Village is the friendliest place on earth, and the safest - people still don't lock their doors here! Have a drink at the Running Iron up the road, you could be sitting next to a celebrity, or a local cowboy (yes, they still exist, and we have 'em here) Be sure to take a walk at night, I've never seen more stars ANYWHERE.

We went from one paradise (Sanibel, Fl) to another paradise: the Cottage and stayed the entire Month of July. A charming Cottage inside and out with all the convenience of home in the midst of a beautiful setting, excellent weather,a quaint and friendly little town and all complete with natures wonder. So much to do and see but always nice to come back to the cottage and enjoy a tranquil country. GREAT

We so enjoyed our stay in this charming adobe cottage on a hill in Carmel Valley. Darling yard and patio, beautiful furnishings and lighting- great collection of classic films and old books. Only one problem...we only stayed 2 nights!! We're already looking forward to our next visit to Carmel Valley. We'll be back!!

Anniversary getaway

  • 5 of 5
The garden at Vintage Oaks was the perfect place to relive memories of 25 years of marriage. It is a very special and unique place. We found new and different decorative items every day. The garden is totally fenced in and private, awesome for us and especially our doggies. The same applied to the inside of the house, little unique decorations everywhere. Thank you for making our very special week even more special.

This is an amazing place to spend some quality time. Tucked away on a back street just a few minutes from Carmel Valley's center, it's a world of its own. Stayed here four evenings and every time walking in the home, found something quaint and fun tucked here and there. All so very tastefully decorated. And outside... You might want to stay there forever. So quiet except for the soothing sounds of nature. A spring gurgling along the property, the calls of crows, and the serenade of frogs beginning mid-afternoon. It's so quiet in the early mornings that I heard the rush of wind beneath a crow's wings as it flew overhead. There's plenty to do in this area, but when you stay here make sure you plan on spending lots of relaxing moments in this environment.

A very cute and inviting cottage. Located in a quiet neighborhood. Great fenced in yard where we felt safe for our dog to enjoy the outdoors with us while we were enjoying being out in the patio area ourselves watching the birds and squirrels. Well equipped,comfy sofas and very comfortable bed. The owner goes above and beyond to meet your needs. We will go back
