DOVE COTTAGE IN HEART OF CARMEL. STROLL TO VILLAGE AND BEACH. PEACEFUL RETREAT.

Carmel Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, Sleeping Nook, 2 Bathrooms. Sleeps 5. In heart of Carmel-By-The-Sea

Nestled in a canopy of Monterey oaks and pines, Dove Cottage provides a tranquil environment ideally located in the heart of Carmel-By-The-Sea. The craftsman cottage was built in 1931 as Carmel was becoming a popular destination for artists and writers from San Francisco, who spent their summers here. Upon entering you will be welcomed with a sophisticated but relaxed European ambiance. This is my second home, which is reflected in the fine furniture, French antiques and quality design throughout. Located within the desirable 'golden rectangle', it's only a short walk to shops, restaurants, art galleries and Carmel's silky white, sandy beaches.

Book now to get the standard rental rate for these upcoming events:

AT&T Pro Am at Pebble Beach

Carmel Bach Festival

Concours d' Elegance

As a designer I renovated Dove Cottage to offer all the modern amenities, while retaining the integrity of this historic artist's cottage which was built in 1931. At that time Carmel-By-The-Sea was frequented by writers and painters from San Francisco who spent their summers here. Dove Cottage is my second home and it retains a wonderful 'spirit of place'. I welcome you to my home and hope that your stay in Carmel is memorable.

LOVE...LOVE....LOVE!

What a wonderful time we had visiting "Dove Cottage"! This cottage is exactly as pictured and described. We loved the charming decor and the immaculate cleanliness of the home. We brought groceries with us and were pleased to see all that we needed to prepare & serve our dinner...all provided in the kitchen! The fireplace was cozy, the beds were comfortable and the neighborhood is so quiet....A wonderful retreat! Everything you need/want is in walking distance...plenty of retail shops & restaurants, the beach, tide pools, a market! Walking the avenues, in the heart of Carmel, is breathtaking. We enjoyed each and every minute of our stay in this darling home & in this spectacular community...We hope to come back very soon! Thank you so much for everything...including the excellent and timely customer service!

JUST LOVELY

  • 5 of 5
What a tranquil, relaxing place. I was part of a group of women who came to run the Big Sur Marathon. This was the perfect cottage for the four of us to eat, relax and take long naps after the race. The walk to town was perfect. We'll be back.

THE PERFECT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My wife Rae & I spent 3 nights at Dove Cottage last week and it was the perfect getaway. We live in Santa Barbara and chose Dove Cottage for our baby-moon, while leaving our other two children home with family.

My wife and I are foodies and always look for a quality experience. Dove Cottage more than met our expectations. The bed was extremely comfortable, towels and linens were high-quality. The property was well-maintained and appointed with quality furnishings. The cottage itself was like something you would read story book.

We like to walk and enjoyed walking into town every evening for dinner as well as walking on the beautiful beaches. Although we have beautiful beaches in Santa Barbara I found the Carmel beach to be closer in experience to Maui (minus the hotels). We also visited the Carmel Mission, and had many excellent food during our dining experiences.

I would highly recommend Dove Cottage to anyone looking for a romantic or peaceful getaway. I myself will be returning and have already recommended Dove Cottage to my friends and family.

SANCTUARY!

  • 5 of 5
In looking for a place to stay for a month in order to escape the severe winter on the east coast, I couldn't have made a better choice. What I was looking for was a quaint cottage, and what I got was MAGICAL. The cottage's decor is perfectly chosen to exude warmth and quality and while it's situated to handle up to five guests, it doesn't seem lonely when it's just one, or crowded when at capacity. The back deck is a perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine, and whether alone or with company, you have a sense of being in your own little world due to the privacy that the landscaping affords. I had a few guests during my stay, and every one of them immediately commented on how special the vibe is in this property. I LOVED my stay here.
Favorite dining: Mission Ranch, The Grill, and 400. I enjoyed daily walks to town, using Junipero and Third as my path (some streets' hills can be vicious on the legs and the lungs!). For photos: Point Lobos (go all the way to the end for the best views) & Point Pinos.
Everything that was promised was delivered; the one small problem that I had was immediately resolved (and it was due to user error). I highly recommend this place, although it's against my better judgement-you know what happens when word gets out...
