My husband was born and raised in Carmel, we were married in Carmel Valley 30 years ago and have been going to either the village or Carmel often in those 30 years. This area is home and we plan to retire there someday. Currently we live in the San Francisco Bay area. Our country home has become our retreat, a place to unwind and recharge .We love to get out of the city and into the sunshine and slower pace of the country. We never grow tired of looking out at the vineyard filled valley from our deck or driving into Carmel for a sunset walk on the amazing white sand beach.

The Owner purchased this house in 2001

We found this property by chance on a business trip to Carmel. Once the realtor opened the gate to the property and we saw the beautiful meadow filled with lupine, poppies and ancient oak trees we knew we were home.

We love the quiet. You will notice when you first get out of the car the only sound you hear is the crickets and the frogs. We love the views of the valley, watching the finger of fog moving in and out of the valley below in the early morning or evening. We love eating dinner out on our deck in the soft candlelight on a warm night. We love to drive into Carmel to walk on the beach at sunset. There are so many things to do but often we just stay home with a pile of books and sit on the deck reading and relaxing.

Fantastic Stay!

We booked this house as a home base for three of us couples to go wine tasting in Carmel Valley. The property was absolutely spectacular! The home itself is great and the view, deck, outdoor lighting, seating area, pool, spa...it was just wonderful.
The owners were out of the country but still made themselves available to answer my questions about the stereo (I am technically challenged) and outdoor speakers. It was a beautiful and comfortable place to stay and I am looking forward to our next trip!

The setting and views from the decks are even more spectacular than the photos! After busy days of sightseeing and enjoying the many attractions in the nearby towns, Rose Cottage is the ideal setting for relaxing, sitting in the hot tub, stargazing at night or just enjoying the silence. The cottage is equipped with pretty much everything you need and the owners are extremely helpful with all aspects of answering initial enquiries, booking and following up with suggestions on local restaurant/ attractions. We will be back next year!

We decided to spend the weekend at the cottage to celebrate a very special family occasion, it was the perfect choice. The views are spectacular, as is the quality of the house both inside and out. It ensured that we had a wonderful celebration. We hated to leave and will definitely try and return as quickly as possible.

Wonderful Family Retreat

We just had an amazing family retreat and are already looking forward to our return to this amazing property. Pictures can not quite replicate the beauty and feelings of serenity one feels on this property.
Beautiful landscape, garden, pool,evening BBQ overlooking the valley, and stargazing are just a few of the highlights during our stay. The teenagers were happy to have internet and cable access but rarely used them as they enjoyed the outside time by the pool so much. I feel the listing description was accurate, accommodations were comfortable and Madalene was a joy to work with. Personable and professional. Enjoy this quite paradise!!
I have no reservation

Not So Pristine Getaway

  • 1 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 13, 2012

We live full time in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas so, the views were nice but, do not surpass our snow capped mountains. None the less, we spent most of the time at the house, outside in the unseasonably warm weather and were so disappointed that the pool was too murky to take a swim. The house would have been pleasant enough if it had been at least cleared of cobwebs before our arrival and the multiple rodent traps and sensors in each room were unsettling at best. We arrived late Friday night ready to bbq our freshly caught salmon on the supplied bbq, but, no one informed us that it wasn't propane and we had to bring our own briquets. Being so far from a grocery store the men made a fire of wood to enjoy our catch.
Living in a rural area myself, I would describe this place as rustic at best, certainly not what we expected......
Owner's Response: I am very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at our home. We have just completed a week stay in our beautiful retreat and feel rested and ready to start the new year.

Our house is obviously not for everyone but for those who are looking for a very private, quiet retreat with amazing views of the valley below, and the Big Sur mountains in the distance, this is a very special place.

As for the cobwebs, though I didn't notice any, I spoke to my housekeeper and she will make a point of double checking all corners.

Regarding the pool it is crystal clear. Any time there is an issue my pool person will come out and take care of the problem right away. I just have to know it needs attention.

Our house is located off a country road behind a private gate. We can see deer, bobcats, wild turkeys, skunks and owls from our decks in the meadow below. Because we are in the country, mice and gophers are part of the ecology as well and they are a constant control issue. We use a non-poison electric system in the house between guests as a deterrent and have a regular service to help us keep these prolific creatures in check.

Thank you for the comment about the charcoal barbecue, I have made that note in our VRBO description to prevent any future confusion. There is a small market just a mile down the road which carries milk,eggs, bread, paper towels, etc which you may run out of or forget. I send this and other information on local resources to every renter ahead of time. For future renters please read through this, it is helpful for planning your trip.

In the 3 years we have rented our house this is the first less than 5 star review formally written to VRBO, not to mention the wonderful comments that were emailed to us but never made it to our listing. We appreciate feedback and we will continue to do everything possible to make a stay in our cozy cottage retreat a wonderfully special experience.
