We moved to Carmel in 1964 and never turned back. We love our home in this special place we call Paradise. We brought up our four daughters here and moved to the Highlands twenty-five years ago to enjoy the magnificent ocean views and serenity. My husband is a writer and I'm a Coach for families of children with special educational needs. We enjoy the arts and fine dining found within minutes of our home. We walk daily in our neighborhood and are always inspired by the natural surroundings of the beautiful Carmel Highlands. Our daughters and some of our grandchildren live nearby. They stayed in this small, quaint, artistic community to enjoy the friendly ambiance and the many outdoor activities the Central Coast offers. One of our daughters and her husband have a sailboat, where they enjoy day sailing and whale watching on the Monterey Bay. From every visitor's perspective, our little corner of the world beckons vacationers to return again and again.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1985

We fell in love with the Highlands and the exquisite ocean views and quiet solitude that surround us here.

Ocean views forever, quiet, private and peaceful, and close to everything: hiking, beautiful nature walks with views of the ocean and wildlife, Point Lobos, Monastery Beach. Access to a gorgeous private beach, exquisite sunsets and wonderful neighbors who add to this special community. Also 6 minutes to shopping and dining in Carmel;15 minutes to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, 30 minutes to Big Sur. Easy access to everything you could want in a vacation getaway!

BETTER THAN ONE CAN IMAGINE

The pictures do not do this adorable cottage justice. Up on a hill away from traffic, noise and neighbors. You wind down a private driveway to a place you can call your own. The moment you walk in you will be overwhelmed with its warmth, coziness and comfort. The decor and furnishings are bright, light, and uplifting. It is a challenge to decide where you want to lay your weary self.

It is has loads of windows that let in all the natural light and fresh air, not to mention the beautiful flower beds you add a colorful touch.

The views are absolutely spectacular, you never want to get off the deck where you can wine, dine and barbeque should you wish.

You will melt into the bed while you gaze at the sky and ocean beyond.

If you can't believe there is more to top it off, wait til you use the key provided that will take you to a private beach where no one else wonders.

I never have come to Carmel without going to town proper, this was a first, we had no desire to leave the property, it has all your heart could ever desire and more.

We cannot wait to return, as we never wanted to leave.

Wow! What wonderful experience, there is nothing I would change about this cottage and Judy is the best hostess. I loved every minute and did not want to leave! The other reviews have said it all and I can only echo their enthusiasm. Very clean, everything as promised and better, wonderful welcome with grapes in the refrigerator, and a huge welcome basket, Judy is very helpful and respects your privacy. I would recommend this property unconditionally.

My husband and I had a great time in this beautiful house in Carmel. The owner, Judy welcomed us with a thoughtful basket of delicious goodies, 2 free passes to Monterey Bay aquarium (a must see) and a parking pass for the nearby national park. The house was immaculately clean and equipped with every amenity. The view from the windows and the terrace was to die for! Every evening beautiful sunsets! We loved the house and would go there again. We Highly recommended this place for its views, beauty and location.

Amazing attention to detail

I can't say enough about the wonderful experience at Point of View. The owner thought of absolutely everything a guest might need. It was what I might do for a beloved friend or dear family member who was staying with me. The property itself is lovely, spacious, beautiful sunset views of the Pacific. In addition there was a welcome basket with bottle of wine, chocolate, etc. Terry cloth bathrobes in the armoir, fresh grapes in the refrigerator, fresh flowers on the table, a free pass to Point Lobos Park (a must see) free pass to the local aquarium, local guide books, and then in the kitchen, all cooking utensils, plus all of the commonly used spices, olive oil, pancake mix, maple syrup, (so that you don't have to buy a large jar of a spice that you will only use once). Just amazing the considerateness of the gracious owner.. Thank you,

location and charm...

Thank you Judy for letting us stay at the point of view. We couldn’t have chosen a better rental than this. First in terms of location, this was ideal for us. So close to Carmel and Monterey and really not far from Big sur. We had looked at hotel or resort options but we had so much more for our money…..no comparison.

Second the neighborhood. So quiet with a fantastic sunset view on the pacific as a bonus.
Third, the home itself. For us it was a wow. Just so perfect and so much better than the pictures. The house came fully loaded and extremely comfy. (2 flat screens, movie channels, High speed internet, BBQ, private porch with a view, quality bed…and the list goes on.) The interior design was impeccable and looked like a small model country home coming out of a Pottery barn magazine. Just so charming and so right for what we were looking for.

Last but not least you Judy… all the little attention to details…the goodies basket, plums from your own plum tree…complete information guide of the area…free pass to Monterey aquarium and of course your friendly approach to make sure our stay memorable

Un dernier commentaire pour tous les francophones de ce monde : nous avons fait un séjour fantastique et inoubliable dans ce petit coin de paradis. Nous vous recommandons sans hésitation ce petit havre de paix. Vous en apprécierez l’extrême beauté, la propreté et la tranquilité mais également la gentillesse et la générosité de son hôtesse.
