Carmel Valley Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Here, along the upper reaches of the Carmel Valley river, you can fall asleep and wake up to the soothing sound of the gentle river rapids gurgling by. This enchanting property offers such peace, tranquility and natural beauty; you may never want to leave.

From the rear view deck perched high above the river you will see Steelhead and crayfish swim. Wild Ducks and Canadian geese proudly parade their young by the riverbank and deer and wild turkey quietly come to quench their thirst. The neighborhood hills and meadows offer hiking and mountain bike trails. A short two-minute walk brings you to the local swim hole under ancient neighborhood oaks. Another mile or so takes you to Carmel Valley Village markets, gourmet restaurants, saloon, art and craft studios, boutiques and wine tasting rooms. From your rear deck, the clear nights show case moonlight reflections on the river and the occasional soulful sounds of night owls.

Located about 20 minutes away from the stunning Monterey Bay Penninsula, you will be able to enjoy Carmel's romantic atmosphere, Quail and Pebble Beach legendary golf courses, the world famous Monterey Bay Aquarium and Pacific Grove's butterfly sanctuary. The property is ideally located to take part in renowned events like Le Concours d'Elegance, the Monterey Jazz festival, the Sea Otter Classic, Laguna Seca automobile and motorcycle races and the Big Sur International Marathon.

Perfect Escape!

  • 5 of 5
A wonderful property and a true home to really get away and relax. We had such a lovely weekend staying at the home and exploring Carmel Valley. The house was a perfectly set up for our family and dog. Plenty of room to spread out, loved the outdoor spots to get away and listen to the river. Our son LOVED the loft room upstairs, great escape for kids! If you take the 2 minute walk to the nearby watering hole before the sun hits the water around 10am, you will see schools of steelhead & crawdad.

Highlights and recommendations... a hike at Garland Park & walk on Carmel by the Sea Beach (dogs okay off leash at both), quick drive to the village for dinner @ Café Rustica (YUM!), super casual dinner outside with big fireplace @ Wickets Bistro next to Croquet lawn and of course just sitting by the river at the house and watching time pass. We will be back!

Fabulous Retreat

  • 5 of 5
First I have to comment on the excellent cookware and sharp knives ( I always pack my own because they are usually substandard, at best )! As one of my girlfriends put it, the house was beautifully updated while retaining it's vintage charm. A perfect get away~relaxing retreat spot. I can't recommend this location enough. The owners were very pleasant and easy to correspond with.

Ideal holiday home for a family

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here in August for 3 nights, and wished we could have stayed for longer. The house is in a peaceful residential road, and guests have the opportunity to sit by the river which backs onto the garden. The kitchen was well-equipped for home cooking. The house feels very spacious and there was plenty of room for a family with three children. A lot of care and thought has gone into the whole property, which was spotlessly clean when we arrived. A great location for families wishing to visit Carmel Valley, Monterey and Point Lobos. Highly recommended.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed a week in this home. It was lovely. We were in Carmel Valley for our son's wedding. The house is exactly like the pictures. Sitting out on the deck, to watch the water gently flowing by was so relaxing, and just what we needed after a busy day of wedding activities.
Erica is perfect to deal with. She responded immediately to all our requests, and we received our deposit very quickly. There were ample towels and kitchen linens. The kitchen was well equipped.
We have nothing but good things to say about renting this house.

2nd time maybe even better than the 1st!

  • 5 of 5
This past Christmas my wife, daughter and our 2 dogs were looking for a festive place to celebrate the holidays and couldn't have found a better place than CV Fun! We enjoyed it so much we stayed again in June. Consider it 2 for 2! It was all we could ask for. All 5 of us had a great time. The location is perfect - close enough to Carmel Valley but quiet. The river was more of a babbling brook, although considering the drought it was nice to have any water flowing at all. It was very relaxing to sit on the porch or even down by the river.

The house is comfortable and has all the amenities you would need. The beds were comfortable. We had breakfast in the front yard, lunch on the deck and dinner in the spacious dining room. The kitchen is good-sized and has all the cookware and utensils, but you do want to bring your own spices and condiments.

Recommendations: Cappuccino and muffins at the Wild Goose Café, dinner at Café Rustica or The Corkscrew Café, wine tasting at Georis. The dogs highly recommend hiking at Garland Park - there are a number of gorgeous trails and dogs can be off-leash which they really enjoyed. Check out Garlzas Canyon which was just as pretty as Garland and very quiet. We took a couple of trips to Carmel Beach which may not be a great place if you are not a fan of canines but for dogs (and dog owners) life doesn't get a whole lot better!

Erica, the property manager was very responsive and helpful. She mad things very easy for us.

We are already planning our next trip to CV Fun!

Wonderful

We were down for the big sur marathon. The house was everything we expected. We loved the breakfast nook on the morning looking out on the river. We saw the turkey's and deer. Everything we needed was there. Close to restaurants and wine tasting too. Erica was great to work with.
