This Cotswold-inspired Carmel stone cottage was built in 1925 and is in the heart of Carmel-by-the-Sea. A tall ivy hedge surrounds the fully fenced property, offering complete privacy, with shops, restaurants and theaters just steps away. Guests are welcomed by the murmuring fountain and beautiful cottage garden. Stone and brick pathways wind to the front steps and the original door, handmade of weathered wood and wrought iron, which opens to a large light-filled room with soaring ceilings and original wood floors. Beside the old Carmel-stone fireplace, is one of many cozy sitting areas located within the cottage. Bedrooms and bathrooms are all newly decorated luxuriously with designer linens and towels. This home offers a fully appointed kitchen, a breakfast bar for two and dining area that seats four to six. Cozy outdoor seating is perfect for morning brunch and coffee to evenings of wine or s'mores around a warm and inviting fire pit. Carmel by-the-Sea was voted Most Romantic City in America by Travel and Leisure, 2014. The new Travel and Leisure survey ranks Carmel by-the-Sea the third most romantic city in the world behind Paris and Venice. Come visit us!

Beautiful and cozy cottage!

This Carmel cottage truly does give you a quintessential Carmel experience! We visited Carmel to spend a mother-daughter birthday celebration week, and the cottage was the perfect home base for our vacation. The cottage is so charming from the outside, and clean and cozy on the inside. We enjoyed mornings drinking coffee in the light-filled living room, and afternoons having wine and cheese in the beautiful garden. The location was perfect and allowed us to walk the few blocks to town to shop and eat, without having to worry about finding a parking spot in town. The house has private parking in the back, for the times when we headed out farther to explore the area. The owner was very responsive, answering all of our questions and providing lots of helpful tips for our visit. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family, and hope to someday visit this charming cottage again!

We loved this home and this location! SO QUIET and secluded, yet a very short walk to great restaurants! The owner was fabulous to work with - accommodated our every need! You will love the town, the proximity to terrific restaurants and the charm of this home! I could move in permanently! Thank you Tamara!

We own 2 vacation rental properties ourselves and always enjoy staying with fellow HomeAway owners to see how we stack up to their properties. In the case of Tamara's charming Carmel cottage, not only did the property exceed our expectations (which were already quite high), we also picked up a few tips to improve our own properties. First, the basics: the photos convey a feel of coziness and style but don't tell the whole picture: the wonderful light which fills all of the rooms (including the kitchen, which has a wonderful skylight), the cleanliness of the property, both inside and out, and the quiet of the surrounding neighborhood.

Small touches greatly enhanced the ease of staying at the cottage; from the light switches being clearly labeled to a welcome bottle of wine and a small jar of chocolate chip cookies. These kinds of details are not easy to provide each guest, especially given that this is a private home and not a hotel with a full staff. In short, staying at the cottage felt more like staying at a vacation home of a family friend who allows a small number of friends and family to use it.

I'm a stickler for beds and bedding, and the cottage surpassed my expectations there as well. Extra thick mattresses, crisp white sheets and fluffy pillows made sleeping a breeze. I won't repeat what other guests have said about the complimentary Monterey Bay aquarium passes and the overall beauty of the setting, other than to echo all of those and the other positive things expressed by our fellow guests.

One thing which had concerned me was the ease with which one could walk into central Carmel, especially at night to & from dinner. Was the cottage on a steep hill making walking into town difficult? What about flashlights? My fears instantly disappeared upon arriving at the cottage: it is literally a 3-block walk to Carmel Plaza (right on Ocean Avenue & Junipero) on a flat quiet street; and Tamara provides a strong flashlight for guests to use. This was huge for us because so many properties in Carmel do not lend themselves to walking easily into town; in fact, we could easily return to the cottage to use the bathroom while shopping & then continue our quest to find the perfect antique or painting!

This beautiful property is perfect for a family or 2 couples who are looking for that classic Carmel experience; it delivers on every level. And you'll know the kind of guest service to expect with the first e-mail from Tamara.

We just spent 5 nights at this lovely cottage with our 3 young kids. The location is incredibly convenient to either walk into town, or make the 3 minute drive down to the beach. The house is somehow much larger on the inside than it looks--we had plenty of room for the kids and adults. It's absolutely gorgeous inside and out! My boys loved playing in the secret loft. We would love to stay here again next year. Thank you again!!

The cottage is amazing, exactly like the pictures. The location is great, we walked to shops and beach everyday. The cottage was very clean and the layout is perfect. You feel like you are experiencing the area like a local instead of being just a tourist. The area is very quiet and even though there are houses near you, you can't see or hear them. The kitchen is perfect, it seemed small, but more efficient than kitchens 3 times the size, if you need something it is there. The beds, as well as the pillows, are incredibly comfortable and I am very picky about that. Tamara (the owner) is awesome , she really worked with us and answered our many questions. This was our first time there and will not be our last! Highly recommend! There is so much to see in this area if you have never been...and the cottage is in the perfect location for you to do as much as you like.
