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.

AT&T Pro Am at Pebble Beach

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.

What a gem! Dove Cottage is charming, comfortable and exquisitely decorated. We appreciated the quiet neighborhood and sense of privacy. It is a pleasant walk to the restaurants, shops and beach.
We will be returning... next time for a longer visit!

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...
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review. I hope you can come back again soon or stay at my other home in Santa Barbara 'Maison Provence' ,if you get out that way.

Our visit to Carmel was wonderful and we couldn't have found a better place to stay. Dove Cottage was perfect. It is beautifully decorated and very warm and inviting. An easy walk to all the shops and restaurants, the location is great. We hope we can return again soon.

Dove Cottage is just the BEST!!!

How many great things can I say about Dove Cottage? I saw many lovely homes but the interiors were dated. As an interior designer I found Amy's home to be beautifully decorated and wonderfully equipped.
The location was extremely convenient to everything. It was as much of a pleasure to come "home" in the afternoon as it was to do the many wonderful things that we found to do. Amy was great to work with and we found all of her recommendations to be excellent.
We enjoyed Demetra restaurant, Porta Bella restaurant. and the brunch at Mission Ranch was awesome.
Monterey Bay Aquarium was well worth the 1/2 day spent there and if you have children....do not miss it.
Big Sur was very much my favorite and a great lunch at a small Lucia Lodge restaurant where you felt you were hanging on the cliff over the ocean! Amy's recommendation of Chateau Julien was a beautiful spot and we took the private tour and tasting. The Carmel Walking Tour was a last minute idea and we would have missed a lot of the local lore and meeting some of the local people where we were welcomed into their galleries, restaurants and shops. It was a well spent $25.00 per person.
I hope to be able to visit again and would definitely stay at Dove Cottage. Just wish I lived closer so I could come more often.

My family and I stayed in Dove Cottage for ten days in June. We absolutely loved everything! The cottage is exquisitely furnished and the the beds in the two bedrooms very comfortable. The appliances and accommodations were top and we would come again any time. The owner was very helpful answering all our questions and we also received our security deposit back within a week. We highly recommend Dove Cottage to all our family and friends!

You will find a booklet to acquaint you with places to visit, restaurants, food markets, a local winery that offers free tours including complementary wine tasting, a local corner market in Carmel- By-The-Sea, a nearby fresh fish market, a walking tour of Carmel and so much more.

You can soak your cares away in the vintage, claw foot bathtub or head for the huge travertine marble shower. My goal is to provide you with exceptional comfort and style and hope you will return many times to this home away from home.
