Overview

Carmel Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Our home is a Cotswold cottage named 'Nonesuch' originally built as an artist's studio in 1933 and completely renovated and expanded in 2006. Nonesuch is located just 2.5 blocks from Ocean Ave and the incredible restaurants and shops in Carmel-by-the-Sea. Or turn and walk the same distance to the famed and picturesque Carmel Beach. Nonesuch has a fully equipped kitchen with a 6 burner Viking Range and SubZero refrigerator. There is a 42' HDTV that is completely encased in a bureau with lift mechanism so that it is hidden when not in use. There is also a DVD player and a Bose iPod player, with an adaptor to enable you to listen to Pandora.

There are 4 beach chairs, 5 beach towels, and many sand toys plus board games for the whole family to enjoy.

Relax on the patio while barbecuing or on the balcony outside the master bedroom.

The master bedroom is large and spacious with a queen bed and its own bathroom with shower and tub.

The 2nd bedroom has a queen bed and shares access to the guest bathroom.

The 3rd bedroom is perfect for kids. There are 2 single beds, one of which is located in a loft area of the bedroom which you climb up into (sleeps a total of 6 if desired).

Take the historic Jane Powers Walkway for an 8 minute walk to Pebble Beach Golf Course. Or take a stroll through town to the historic Carmel Mission, Clint Eastwood's Mission Ranch Resort, Carmel River Beach, and Carmel Point.

About The Owner

The day we first saw Nonesuch Cottage, we were not intending to buy a home, but we fell in love with it. It was a lovely Cotswold cottage, sitting on a knoll facing south, so that it was bathed in sunshine. We were hooked. The first time I came to Carmel was when my mom brought me here to celebrate my graduation from college. I felt like I had come upon a little European village, right here in California, and dreamed of owning a cottage here one day. My husband felt the same connection a few years later when we included a stop in Carmel on our honeymoon, and we’ve been coming back several times a year ever since.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2007

Why The Owner chose Carmel

We purchased Nonesuch because it's European charm seemed perfectly suited to the village of Carmel-by-the-Sea and due to the beauty and accessibility of Carmel.

Happy Family of Five

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home with first-rate amenities and appliances. The owners were responsive and the property was prepared exactly as advertised. The location is terrific - a short/nice walk to town, the beach and 17-mile drive at the Carmel/Pebble Beach entrance. One guest room is best suited for kids - plan sleeping arrangements accordingly.

Charming cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family. Very close to Ocean Avenue and many restaurants. Ocean Beach is a 10 minute walk on a lovely street. We walked everywhere. The house had a nice layout and a wonderful deck to sit out on for appetizers and wine. Everything was very clean and tidy.

Perfect Anniversary Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house and location were absolutely phenomenal. We couldn't have been happier with the accommodations. The house was very well decorated and perfectly maintained.

The proximity to Ocean Avenue was a big attribute. Also, it is a very walkable distance to the ocean.

I would strongly recommend this house to all friends/family. I couldn't have been more pleased.

Convenient, Quiet, Charming

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect! Close enough to town but far enough away that there was absolutely no noise at all and you could hear the ocean at high tide. We appreciated the filtered water cooler in the fridge. Plenty of room for a family but not so big that the two of us felt lost. This location allowed us to walk everywhere in Carmel by the Sea. We felt like we were 'earning' our meals by walking especially that hike up to Katy's for breakfast. Not far from Carmel Beach so you can watch the sunset and the beach dogs get their bliss on. (I want to come back as a Carmel beach dog) When you're done, there's a path on the far left of the beach and if you follow it and go up the steep street, it takes you almost right back to the house.

The only things of note is there's a trick to the patio doors, make sure you pull them in good and tight toward you to get them to lock properly. The only thing I wish it had is the option for window coverings of some kind, particularly over the kitchen window. The neighbor and her dog were eye level with us and could see anytime we were in the kitchen, dining or living room which made us a little uneasy. Luckily despite most neighbors having dogs, barking wasn't an issue. We get enough of that at home and were thankful for well behaved pups!

We would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Angie: We are going to do something about a window covering on the kitchen window. Excellent point that we will address shortly. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay and appreciate your comments and suggestions.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing property in the lovely town of Carmel! The adorable cottage is an easy walk to the beautiful beach or in to town for shopping, dining or wine tasting. The house itself is lovely and very well maintained and equipped. Carmel is such a relaxing town but close to Monterey, Carmel Valley and Big Sur. The house is perfect for families. The master bedroom is large, the second bedroom is also a nice size with the attached bathroom. The third bedroom is perfect for a child, it is a bit of an adventurous climb up to the loft, probably not the best for young kids. The owners were a delight to work with, very thorough and professional.
