A Little Slice of Heaven

My boyfriend and I stayed at this beautiful little oasis for several days around Christmas. My parents' place was swamped with various guests, and this was the perfect escape! Edward and Beverly are such warm, welcoming, and knowledgable hosts (they both grew up in Carmel Valley), and the cottage and property are about as beautiful as you can get. My boyfriend and I both work in Silicon Valley / San Francisco, and we couldn't have hoped for a nicer getaway and escape from the hubbub of the "city". The cottage itself is incredibly charming, with a fully equipped kitchen (where we made breakfast and tea every morning) and beautiful bathroom with radiant heating. If the spectacular views to the property (koi pond! meditation benches! hummingbirds! redwoods! orchards and rose gardens!) aren't enough, there's also full cable and iPod jacks. In short, this little place has everything you might want or need for a weekend escape or longer. Carmel Valley is a beautiful destination, with much more sun than its more famous neighbor, Carmel-by-the-Sea, and many a wine tasting room, fabulous restaurant, and scenic hike. If you want to go farther afield, the galleries of Carmel and the amazing beauty of Big Sur are just 20-40 minutes away. Really, we can't say enough wonderful things about this beautiful cottage, the amazing property, the lovely owners (including Bella and Jackson, the loving canine guardians of the property!), and the general experience of "getting away" in Carmel Valley. I heartily recommend you book your trip today!
