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!

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
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.
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.
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!
This was our first trip to Carmel Valley. It is quaint, beautiful and peaceful. The cottage is set in a quiet, picturesque location with great views of the well landscaped yard and beautiful hillside. The house was clean, nice decor and well maintained. The hosts were gracious and left out muffins, fresh fruit and a bottle of nice wine. It was a short scenic drive to Monterey and Carmel. The highlight of our trip, besides staying at this lovely cottage, was going to Refuge Spa. (Give yourself a good three hours + to enjoy all it has to offer.) Point Lobos State Reserve has the best views along it's hiking trails and Diner at Mission Ranch. We look forward to coming back in October. Do not hesitate to stay at this beautiful place, well deserving of five stars.
We had a great getaway here in Carmel Valley. The cottage was very clean and nicely decorated. Arriving and finding some muffins and a bottle of wine was a nice surprise. It's a short drive to get to Carmel by the Sea and Monterey and lots of great restaurants and vineyards in Carmel Valley are very close by. We'll definitely be back for a return visit!
We loved our stay here. The space is clean, airy, light, and the setting on the grounds is just beautiful. At first we were a bit hesitant to stay up in the hills away from town, but were so glad we did- the drive up Carmel Valley road is so beautiful, and it's quiet and peaceful.
Thanks for a wonderful place to stay!

we spent three wonderful days in Carmel, doing all the things we wanted to. Coming "home" to this lovely cottage made for perfect days. We could not have enjoyed ourselves more. It is a very charming and well furnished and maintained. Our hosts, Carleen and Keith made us most welcome. The little touches, i.e., the muffins, wine and fruit were very appreciated. The eclectic music cd's were so enjoyed. If you are looking for a bit of solitude this is it.
A quiet place. Attractive, tastefully decorated. A fruit basket and homemade muffins awaited our arrival. And a bottle of wine! The kitchen was user friendly with all you need to make a meal. A few more pots and lids would have made the place totally complete. I forgot to bring one along. I choose VRBOs because I like to cook meals and not have to eat out all the time. The owners respected our privacy. I would definitely return. The area has so much to offer. Pt. Lobos is minutes away and a highlight. Even the locals think so. Also Earth Bound health food store is minutes away with fresh sandwiches, fresh juices and baked goods made daily - all organic!
We visit Carmel Valley regularly as we have family located in the area in we WILL be staying here again. This little cottage is super quaint and cozy and the owners are super accommodating. They provide the little things like coffee and fruit and allowed us to check out later than normal due to our travel schedule. The setting is very private and cozy and the gas fireplace and shower are great. If you are looking for an affordable yet great place to stay with people who truly care about your experience, look no further. This is the place to stay!
Wine Tasting is very nearby, and almost everything mentioned above is within a 10-minute drive. Other activities such as kayaking, surfing, and boating are within a 20 -25 drive.
