Carmel Highland Charming Cottage!
Submitted: April 27, 2013

My boyfriend and I just got back from Carmel Highlands and already we want to go back! This cottage left you wanting for nothing. Judy was an exceptional host; she was very pleasant, full of energy but yet completely respected our privacy. She gave us a tour of the cottage, showed us how to use the electronics, including portable sound systems, gave us the Lobos State park pass, the aquarium pass and was on her way.
A charming welcome basket included fresh herbs, crackers, dark chocolate/wine, fruit, nuts, hummus in the fridge and more! Never have I seen a welcome basket like this!
I can not even begin to describe the view from the magnificent windows both upstairs in the master suite and from the first floor. You didn't want to leave the cottage but you knew what awaited you beyond the cottage doors.
The kitchen was very well equipped including a full spice rack, olive oil, teas, coffee etc.
The king sized bed and pillows are very comfortable and there were even terry cloth robes for us to use!
Judy gave us a list of favorite local restaurants in which we tried several. We had a wonderful Mexican meal at Dos Amigos! There was also a browsing book on Big Sur hikes with tabbed pages of favorite hikes. We did a few of them and were NOT disappointed, including the walk down to the private beach.
All in all we had such a wonderful stay, Judy's attention to detail is exquisite!! We would definitely go back!!
