CARMEL VALLEY PRIVATE 'ISLAND GETAWAY' COTTAGE W/KIT $150/NT

Carmel Valley Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage/Studio,1 bath. Sleeps 3 at most with use of twin sized futons.

Our beautiful and very private guest house is perfect for your vacation in the Monterey/Carmel/Carmel Valley area. Close to many quality restaurants, shops, and wine tasting in Carmel Valley, and only 15 minutes from Carmel-by-the-Sea! The cottage is approximately 470 sq. ft. with a fireplace, queen-sized bed, a kitchenette, nice-sized bathroom with shower, and it's own private entrance and front deck. It is perfect for 2 adults, but can sleep one additional person with the use of a twin-sized futon. Because the space is small, this arrangement is best reserved for a family with one child. (PLEASE INFORM OWNER!). It is set among the oaks in our beautiful garden with fountain, and is decorated with a soothing 'Island' theme using pale green colors. There is plenty of off-street parking and we are very easy to find. Upon your arrival, you will be greeted with a complimentary bottle of wine and a fresh fruit bowl for your enjoyment. We also have free internet access, cable television, and nation-wide FREE calling on a private land line. We have assembled a binder with menus and maps to help you in your selection of the many great restaurants, shops, and wine tasting rooms nearby. The weather in Carmel Valley is most always sunny and considerably warmer than Carmel-by-the-Sea. We are always accessible to answer any questions or to assist with any directions you may need. Our goal is to make your stay with us a memorable occasion and more pleasant and relaxing than you ever expected. Aloha!

Keywords: Private, separate, cottage, 1 bedroom, studio, with kitchen, sleeps 1-3 persons. If more than 2 persons, an additional fee of $25 per night applies.

About CJ

My husband and I are long-time Carmel Valley residents. I am a retired designer and my husband works for a major building supply company. We are happy 'empty nesters' living with our two cats T-bone and Minnie.

CJ purchased this cottage in 2001

Why CJ chose Carmel Valley

This is actually our residential property that has a separate guesthouse. It is in a quiet, up-scale, and eclectic neighborhood with semi-large parcels.

What makes this cottage unique

It's such a great location. In the sun and away from the tourist traffic, yet a short drive to almost any activity you desire.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This young family was so nice, and they left our cottage very tidy. I would recommend them to any other VRBO hosts without hesitation. And they can come back to see us any time!

We stayed here two nights in May as we were attending a wedding at Holman Ranch. The cottage was very clean, quiet and very comfortable. I would not hesitate to stay here again. C.J. was great to work with.

The Best

  • 5 of 5
We stay in VRBOs a lot - but this was our favorite. The guest house was beautiful and was so nice to have a bottle of wine with fruit and muffins there when we arrived. There was a very minor glitch when we arrived - the room wasn't quite ready. Carleen went way above and beyond to make up for it and I don't believe I've ever been made to feel so welcome. I also appreciated all the attention to detail - including driving instructions; and in the room very clear instructions for using the tv, wifi, plus restaurants, etc. The room was clean and very comfortable and we look forward to coming back.

Nice place

  • 4 of 5
We loved the place it is quite cozy and comfortable.

However, if like I do you need internet to keep in touch with your office you can forget about it and not much help from the owner....

Owner's Response: I feel a response to this review is in order. First, I am SO sorry that anyone would have trouble with anything in our cottage. I was unaware that this guest had any trouble of any kind during his stay. Looking back through my emails, I see he did send one email to me on the day of check-in to let me know he was having trouble with the internet, and I did not see it. I had let the guest know that I was recovering from major surgery and would be out of commission during his stay, and to please call my husband on his cell phone with any issues. He did not. Also, the phone numbers to the main house and both of our cell numbers is posted in the cottage. He did not call any of them. Additionally, I have very simple instructions for fixing internet connection problems posted in a "Welcome Guests" binder that I place prominently in the cottage, which fixes the problem 90% of the time. Apparently he did not read it. Had the guest called any of the phone numbers to reach us, we would have done everything we could to solve the problem immediately. We know how important internet access is for our guests. I am very glad that the guest seems to have enjoyed the cottage in every other way, but I feel his comment that he got little help from us is unjustified. He made almost no effort to make us aware of any problem. We are on property, and truly do everything we can to respond to our guests needs, and that is gratefully reflected in all our other reviews.

Cute, Relaxing Cozy place!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay here! It's a little bit outside Carmel, and we found that to be a nice escape from a normal hotel room and the busy part of being in a huge busy area. There's a nice deck outside the unit, that we enjoyed soaking in the sun. Our friend found some great mountain biking trails within a short drive. The owner was great about details, recommendations for dinner nearby and really made us feel welcome. I'd for sure recommend this place!

Great value and location in Carmel Valley

  • 5 of 5
The rental was just as described and is in a wonderful neighborhood and easy drive to Carmel Valley Village or Carmel/Monterey. The kitchen and mini fridge were nicely stocked and we were greeted with a nice bottle of wine, some fresh fruit, and muffins. No need to run out to get some breakfast items. Very nice! Beautiful back yard and outdoor sitting area and great walking neighborhood with some beautiful homes and beautiful views of the mountains. The smells are intoxicating around there with the pine and ocean smells. Took us only 20 minutes to get to most tourist destinations. We could rent movies on demand which we did one night cause it was raining and there was an envelope for us to leave $$. It's a smaller place and would not recommend it for more than 2 people but worked very well for us. Really enjoyed the Corkscrew and Cafe Rustica restaurants in the Village!
