QUINTESSENTIAL CARMEL COTTAGE, GUEST HOUSE

Carmel House Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, one bath, sleeps 3 adults or 2 adults and 1 child

Escape into a mini-fantasy world in this delightful 650-square-foot guest cottage situated in a quiet residential neighborhood just a block stroll to downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea. Sparkling clean and newly refurbished, this fanciful one-bedroom, with its accouterments of mermaids, seashells, starfish and other undersea imagery, offers a perfect vacation respite for up to three adults or two adults and two children.

This is the perfect setting for a romantic getaway, with its sunny, sand-sea-and-sky color scheme, whimsical objets d'art and sumptuous bath and bed linens that will make you feel like you are at a luxury spa.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complimentary hors d'oeuvres and sparkling wine or cider, spa passes to the Spa on the Plaza in Monterey, Scheid Wine tasting room passes and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is at your disposal to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, plush bathrobes and over sized towels, and beach gear.

One open, airy room with a vaulted ceiling and skylights comprises the living, dining and kitchen areas. A beach-like feel is achieved with sand-colored tile flooring, a rattan throw rug, and white furnishings that impart a bright, sun-splashed look to the living room, which includes a Plasma TV with Blue Ray. An ottoman in the living room converts to a bed for one adult. A sofa, that can be made really comfortable with Memory Foam, is deep enough to sleep a child or teenager. The kitchen, with its brand-new granite counter tops and glossy white cabinetry, has a small gas range and full refrigerator. A round white table with two chairs is provided for intimate dining. The handsome new bathroom, which is tiled throughout, features a granite counter top and bathtub with shower.

You will sleep like a baby on the queen-sized bed with its new Sealy Posturepedic extra-plush mattress and ultra soft, luxury linens. A Dutch door in the bedroom leads to a private patio and lush garden filled with colorful flowering plants that flourish all year round in Carmel's temperate Mediterranean climate. You can dine al fresco at a bistro tables and chairs; a gas grill is provided for outdoor cooking. You can access a stacking washer/dryer from the patio.

The cottage is within walking distance of the remarkable selection of shops, boutiques galleries and restaurants in the village of Carmel. Bruno's Market, a gourmet grocery store that is a Carmel trademark, is just a few blocks away. Breathtaking white sand beaches skirted by the Monterey Peninsula's trademark Cypress trees are an ambitious but doable walk. In the car, you can be at Carmel Beach in a matter of minutes.

A pathway along the fence-line just outside the guest-house door leads to a charming vest-pocket park. Pets are welcome.

The cottage is situated in a completely enclosed and private area behind a main house - also available for rental -- that can accommodate five adults or four adults and two children.

You can book our 2 bedroom, 1 bath main house (see #3274 on this website for more information) separately or together with this cottage.

Our stay in Carmel at this sweet cottage was just incredible. The place was delightfully decorated and so well stocked. It was so close to town and the beach but in a private and secluded location..We enjoyed it tremendously and will return !

This is a fantastic place to stay. The house is spotless, furnished thoughtfully, and extremely well equipped. The location is so peaceful. I could tell that the owners really took time to make sure this was a great experience for any one staying in the home. The office staff are available, helpful, and very nice to deal with. I recommend this rental home and company highly and with out reservation. I will definitely be retuning to this location. Perfect.

Cozy and comfy

  • 5 of 5
Everything went super smooth, the instructions were very clear. Everything we possibly needed was at the little cottage, and it was great to have a bbq too! Having internet access was a huge plus, as we took our computer to look up good places to eat or pretty hikes to go on. I would definitely recommend this place to any couple looking for a romantic getaway. It's a very private place with fencing all the way around, and we really liked that. We had considered taking our dog, and they do allow dogs at this cottage. They even provide supplies if you do decide to take your dog, as Carmel is super dog-friendly from what I hear. It was also really nice to have the Aquarium passes, because that saved us 60! Overall, a great place to stay :)

This rental was the sweetest get away experience!

  • 5 of 5
I spent a weekend in this lovely cottage with my husband and my mother who was visiting us from Europe. We had a wonderful time here feeling as if we were at home. The interior of the cottage is beutiful and very comfortable. It's a small little place with everything in it one needs for a relaxing weekend. We loved the location also, as the house is in the herat of Carmel. Me and my husband are looking forward to returning for an other lovely weekend.

The Monterey Peninsula is unique in its combination of breathtaking natural resources and a multiplicity of cultural and entertainment possibilities. You can find something for every possible taste. For nature lovers, there is the diversity of mountain and sea, for picnicking, surfing, fishing, horseback riding, hiking, beachcombing, bird-watching, kayaking, scuba diving, tidepooling, biking and more. If you want a man-made excitement, we have art galleries galore, excellent fine-art museums, local theater, outstanding restaurants, boutiques, a natural history and a children's museum, a world-class aquarium, and that's just for starters. History buffs will have a field day exploring the adobes of Monterey. There's so much to do that you cannot possibly do it all in one visit, which means you will have to come back.

Other Activities: whale, dolphin & otter watching!
