|Minimum Stay||7 - 30 nights|
Whimsical 1926 Studio apartment on a lovely large garden property a block from Carmel's shopping district. Quiet, but oh so close to everything that makes Carmel a wonderful vacation experience. Just one block finds you in the heart of the city. The Studio comes equipped with a queen tempurpedic bed and a comfy couch suitable for a restful night's sleep. Complementary WiFi.
Relax in the clawfoot bath tub (with shower) after a long day of exploring all that Carmel has to offer. A small kitchen is equipped for light cooking. Available for limited use monthly rentals.
Vineyard and winery owner. Two daughters both grown, married with babies. No animals as I travel :-)
Ann Hougham purchased this studio in 1994
It's a gem. It's small but on a large piece of land. Close to downtown but tranquil. It's what Carmel used to be in it's golden days and I'm so fortunate to be it's caretaker.
Garden setting, you couldn't be closer to the city center, off street parking,
Thank you so much for your hospitality and the use of your studio. Our stay here was truly like a small preview of heaven. We can't wait to come back. Thank you again and best wishes to you!
I was fortunate to be able to spend five weeks in this charming little gem. Its definitely quintessential Carmel By the Sea. I adored my time there , just wish I stayed longer. (actually wanted to book two additional weeks , however it was already taken) . It was everything that is stated on VROB and more. Its very quiet. comfortable and inviting . I loved having the windows wide open to the fresh air 24/7 , as that brought the outside in I do believe my favorite thing was using the "veranda" Myself, along with family enjoyed many a happy hour there prior to heading out for dinner. You wont regret booking here, if possible try to stay at least a month to truly enjoy immersing yourself into Carmel. Then you will absolutely be able to experience the best part of this rental....Ann herself...If not for the fact I want to move to the area...I will definitely rent here again, hopefully next time for four months.
Wishing I was still walking home up the hill on mountain View
I loved, loved, loved my stay here! The studio is so charming...I adored the old bathtub and the geraniums in the window box and the dollhouse size of the place which is perfect for one or two. I liked the way it felt so private and yet was only blocks away from downtown. I loved walking to the beach for the sunset, and exploring the picturesque shops and courtyards. Even though I was here for almost a month, I didn't get to experience everything Carmel has to offer... It is a beautiful, beautiful place and I would highly recommend staying at Ann's little studio....except that I want to keep it a secret so it won't be booked next time I can get away!
I stayed at Ann's for the entire month of August and had the most incredible relaxing month of my life.
I loved the privacy of being in the backyard and the easy access to everything. The grocery stores were two block away and the beach just 10 blocks, all walking distance.
I think if you are going to Carmel you need to stay a month to really enjoy the time there.
As for the owner, Ann, what a special person and her wine is unbelievable.
This will definitely be a place I return in the near future.
This quaint cottage could not be in a better location for anyone who loves Carmel and wants to walk all over the place like my dog and I did for three weeks in September. It is literally a one minute walk to the shopping on Ocean Avenue - and 5 minutes to the beach. Best weather month of the year for Carmel! For guests who are not familiar with Carmel, it's a very short drive to Monterey, Pacific Grove, 17-Mile Drive, and many beaches and walking trails. The property is LOVELY and securely fenced so I had no worries that my dog would get out, but she had lots of room to explore. The queen bed was SUPER comfy. The pictures on the website are exactly how the cottage looks. The Wifi system worked perfectly all the time - I streamed Netflix from my PC when I wanted to watch a movie. While I did no actual cooking (I was also on vacation from cooking), the kitchenette was very adequate for light cooking on the stovetop. But I put the coffee maker to good use! There's a good size refrigerator and making ice was quick and easy. Anne is a great hostess and very accommodating. Guests have use of a washer/dryer, and their own off-street parking space. Considering the overall high cost of lengthy stays in Carmel, Anne's cottage is a bargain!
I have just returned from an wonderful month in Carmel. The studio is very unique and gives you everything you need, but also provides a chance to step back in time and enjoy an amazing setting. The owner, Ann, went above and beyond to accommodate myself and my dog. The location is unbeatable, not only for Carmel but outlying areas. I did not miss or want TV and the wifi was never a problem. It was perfect and I want to rent it again!
I spent 12 wonderful days in this quaint little studio in March. Had a great time wandering the streets of Carmel and walking the beaches in the afternoon. (Studio is 1 block from town) very convenient to everything. Very charming, beautiful and also pet friendly. (My son spent a nite visiting w/his dog and it worked out great). I live in Hawaii, but there is something about Carmel for me that is very enchanting.
In the heart of downtown Carmel. Walk steps to town, a short walk to beach. Park your car and leave it for your entire stay.
