Overview

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.

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.

Cozy, Comfortable, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
amy was a delight to work with from start to finish. This property comes as advertised and is even more charming in person. It's proximity to dining, the beach, area attractions (17-mile drive, Carmel Valley, the Mission) was ideal. It is a short walk to numerous dining and shopping options and allowed us to take in the sunset on Carmel Beach each of our 3 nights. It was a storybook getaway for my wife and I and we are so thankful to Amy for making this cottage available to others. If I owned this perfect little haven I'm not so sure I'd be as willing to share. If you are considering this cottage, do yourself a favor and stop procrastinating!

Amazing and delightful cottage

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed on your cottage. We immediately fell in love with its charm. You updated and decorated the cottage so wonderfully. We felt so protected with the enclosed front patio. Loved the deck in the back. We were visited by 3 raccoons who were looking for the nuts on the deck at night. We will definitely recommend this cottage to our friends and relatives. Hope to go back soon. Amy recommended Dametres restaurant and we loved the food, the ambience and the owner was delightful with his music and song. We had a great time.

Dove Cottage

  • 5 of 5
My group of five adults stayed at Dove Cottage whilst visiting the Big Sur coastline recently. The cottage was comfortable and charming. All participants commented favourably on the cottage and surrounds. We especially enjoyed the large deck outside and cosy places inside. The cottage was clean and the equipment and facilities were adequate. The owner provided good customer service throughout.

Loved It!!

  • 5 of 5
We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary and my birthday at this lovely cottage. Everything was just as pictured. The cottage was cozy, clean, comfortable...everything we wanted and expected. Carmel is a delightful town to visit! There's so much to see in town and nearby. We went on day trips to Big Sur, Monterey, Pacific Grove, 17-Mile Drive, Point Lobos State Park, and Carmel Mission. And we had plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying the cottage. Some of our favorite restaurants in Carmel were Katy's Place (best breakfast!), Casanova's, and Yafa's. I would highly recommend a vacation to Carmel and a stay at Dove Cottage.

Love...Love....Love!

  • 5 of 5
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!
