About The Owner

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

Peaceful, Relaxing and Very Comfortable...

  • 5 of 5
Point of View cottage was unforgettable. We were very relaxed and comfortable during our entire stay. We loved hearing the ocean as we fell asleep each night! The location is both peaceful and serene and close to Point Lobos State Park, Big Sur and Monterey for day trips. The welcome basket was perfect! Thank you Judy.

The passes for the amazing Monterey Bay Aquarium and the California State Parks were a great surprise and we express our gratitude for them. Another added bonus was being able to enjoy the delicious pears from the pear trees on the property.

Everything was perfect. Would highly recommend Point of View.

We visited the cottage earlier this month not knowing what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised by not only the spectacular picturesque views and cozy ambiance along with very thoughtful touches and attention to detail the gracious owner Miss Judy provides. We were greeted with a lovely fresh lavender & rosemary bouquet and a welcome basked with many yummy treats inside along with passes to the Monterrey Aquarium, entrance to the beautiful Point Lobos Reserve and access to a wonderful private beach. We did do day trips to Big Sur and a couple of wineries and a little bit of hiking and dinners out but both felt we would be just as happy to stay in and spend more time just relaxing on the deck & cooking our meals in the cozy kitchen. We even experienced regular morning visits from a pretty little wood pecker, can't say enough of just how enjoyable it was to stay at "Point of View", we will definitely be back and hopefully for a longer period of time, 3 days was not enough! Thank you Judy for allowing us to stay in your beautiful little piece of heaven! Our best, Tony & Yolanda

A Piece of Heaven on Earth!!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the Point Of View was one of the nicest experiences as a family to date!!! There was no stone left unturned!! From the amazing location that was perfect for any experience or adventure in the BigSur/Carmel/Monterey area, to the linens, beautiflul bouquets of flowers and gift baskets!!! The cottage was a reflection of the beautiful owners; so delightful, very comfortable, and beautiful from the inside out!!! The views were spectaculor and the windows and french doors, that opened out, brought that all right in to enjoy!!!! We were greeted by Ms Judy who was one of the kindest people we've met and her attention to details should be studied! Every review said it perfectly!! Our teen agers enjoyed the experience very much and we will be back....

This will be a short review because all that has been said good about Judy and her place has been said. My wife and I spent 3 nights here and had a wonderful time at the house and in the area. Judy was most helpful in all respects. We would recommend it to anybody. For our money, we would recommend it over a hotel or other facility anytime.
Thanks Judy for a great stay.

Great location, great scenery...perfection

  • 5 of 5
We spent 5 wonderful nights at Point of View. Everything was perfect from the minute we arrived. Judy thoughtfully provides a gift basket for you as you arrive and clearly shows you the property and explains the "deal".

Carmel Highlands is a perfect base camp for heading north or south. We drove south twice, north once and stayed in in the area one day. Point Lobos is a hidden gem not 3 miles from the cottage. Beautiful location and we were able to see harbor seal pups right there...very cool. A drive south yields mile after mile of gorgeous big sur coastline, lighthouses and in the right season, whales and an elephant seal hatchery.

The cottage is well appointed with everything needed to make our stay comfortable. The wall of windows in the bedroom allowed for 5 awesome mornings of coffee in bed looking at the ocean view.

We've stayed in many VRBO units and we both agree this was the best ever. Thanks Judy!!!

Super Quaint Cottage

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I came out to visit family in CA and we just loved renting this beautiful, quaint cottage. Everything we needed was right there and the view of the ocean was spectacular! The owner, Judy, was very nice, and when we arrived she came and met us at the cottage and showed us around the place before she left us on our way. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone who is looking for a relaxing, peaceful getaway near the ocean.
