Review Submitted October 10, 2011 Date of Stay August 29, 2011

Our family stayed in Sea Otter for week this past August, and loved everything about the cottage, its comprehensive amenities, and fabulous location. You are (quite literally) just a stone's throw from the beach, and can BBQ and enjoy a glass of wine while watching the otters and sea lions enjoy the waters of Monastery Beach. We were impressed by the comprehensive kitchen amenities.

WILL NOT DISAPPOINT!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week in Carmel last summer but didn't have the ocean views. We wanted to come back for that experience and were drawn to this cottage by the pictures of the ocean. We were not disappointed. Pictures we took could pass as duplicates. The cottage is spacious, well appointed and comfortable. The skylights
in living room allowed for great light and let us enjoy a drizzle of rain. The beach was steps away, very private and a great place to relax and read or watch for dolphins and whales. Dog lovers...the hiking, walking trails which parallel the cottage were perfect for our dog, Harley. We could walk forever and he never wanted to turn back! Nights we had a bonfire on beach or enjoyed sound of the surf. We slept like babies. Was close to shopping and restaurants, but when you were at the cottage there was such a remote, private feeling.

We would definitely recommend this cottage and will return ourselves.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5
The Sea Otter cottage was absolutely perfect to decompress from a very stressful job. The cottage and environment are beautiful. It was welcoming with attention to details and comfort. Great location for hiking and walking on the beach. I look forward to my next visit. I plan to make regular trips. Would recommend this cottage for individual, couple or family vacation. Plus great accommodations for my dog too!

Sea Otter Cottage

  • 5 of 5
ABSOLUTELY EXCELLENT!!! We just returned from a week at the Sea Otter Cottage and have never been so delighted with a vacation experience in our lives. We used to stay in Carmel proper, not knowing this gem existed right on Monastery Beach! While at the cottage, we watched and photographed a group of three whales just off the beach; they were so close we could easily hear them breathing when they surfaced! The week was so inspiring that I have over 830 photographs of the beach, flowers, birds, whales, sun setting, trees, and rugged surf action. The cottage is outstanding and we cannot express how pleasant and wonderful the stay was. The Whistlers are also very special folks who make sure everything is perfect. We recommend this spot and the three cottages for anyone who loves the ocean, nature, and the beautiful seaside California life style. Just step out the patio door and there's the ocean. Your BBQ is right there, ready to be used to enjoy the evenings outside, listening to the powerful surf hit the shore. The seaside Carmel trail system that is just beside the property is amazing in early May with all the flowers up and down the coast. The cottage has its own mix of flowers and birds along with the most fabulous, huge trees we have ever had the opportunity to live beside. The beach, trails, Point Lobos, nearby Carmel Crossroads for all your extra needs all add up to a fabulous and convenient home away from home. This is a real adventure with the luxury of everything being provided for your needs to get started enjoying your vacation. We kicked ourselves for forgetting our binoculars and we were so pleased to find that the cottage had a pair of excellent binoculars (along with everything else you could need to have a wonderful stay by the ocean). Our friends from Carmel Valley were shocked to see the beauty that this place provided. You look out through the west windows right onto the rolling surf, closer than anything you will find at Pebble Beach. I put a few photographs of this wonderful experience on https://www.flickr.com/photos/100558722@N02/14177079075/in/photostream/

Owner's Response: Hi Clarke,

Thank you so much for your wonderful words, and photos! You really did get the best of the cottages during your stay. We hope to have you back soon.

Thanks again for the great photos of the whales, right there off the shoreline, what a treat.

Cute, Cozy & Perfect Location!

This was one of our best vacations ever!

Having never been to California before, we really didn't know the ins and outs of vacationing in this area and just sort of stumbled upon the listing for the Sea Otter Cottage. We cannot believe how perfect this place was for our family. Bright, clean and cozy - it was well maintained and so comfortable that we have already booked it for next year!

The cottage is located right on the beach so you wake up to the waves crashing in on the shore over breakfast, watch the sunset as you eat dinner and spend the whole day exploring the beach, the tide pools and climbing all over the rocks. Even though there were two other cottages nearby, we hardly ever saw the other renters and felt like we had a lot of privacy. The full-sized washer and dryer was a plus, and we really appreciated the fact that, in addition to a nice selection of cookware and utensils, there were some basic supplies like salt & pepper, coffee filters, paper towels, dishwasher detergent, etc. to help us get our vacation started. We definitely recommend getting the firewood as relaxing in front of the fire was a great way to start and end each day.

The cottage is located five minutes from Point Lobos State Natural Preserve - arguably the best state preserve along the coast. It is also five minutes from a cute shopping mall that has everything from a Safeway grocery, and a great fish market to little boutique retail stores and several restaurants that span various price points for lunch and dinner. It's just a few minutes drive into Carmel, and about 30 minutes to Big Sur - a couple of hours to a whole day if you want to drive the whole PCH, hike & explore through all the Big Sur parks and grab dinner at one of the various ocean view restaurants. We saw dolphins, whales, sea otters, entire beaches of elephant seals, as well as regular seals and sea lions.

The Whislers were very accommodating and you can tell that they really care about their properties. We still get excited when we talk about our trip to Carmel and are looking forward to coming back next year!
