NEW, PRIVATE DETACHED STUDIO

Carmel Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio (Sleeps 2 max)

Totally private - a cozy hideaway for two people in a separate building. No one above, below or next to you. However, your host is nearby - 'invisible but available'.

Calendar updated daily; all inquiries answered promptly. We welcome you personally and provide a quick overview of Carmel and the peninsula.

Book for six nights the rate is $125 + tax (only by booking directly with us).

COTTAGE AMENITIES:

An immaculate, compact and exceptionally well designed space - just 200 sf (basically a bedroom, kitchenette and bath) and very efficiently arranged. All brand new as of 11/1/2013.

There is a fridge, microwave, toaster and coffee maker. No cooking but we do provide cutlery, glasses, mugs, etc. for take out or leftovers. Complimentary snacks, coffee, water, juices, wine, yogurt etc.

New marble bathroom with walk in shower. Plush linens. Stocked with toiletries in case you forget something plus an iron & hairdryer & lighted make up mirror. You could really just arrive with your clothes and a toothbrush (though we have that too).

Flat screen TV with Comcast cable with more channels than you'll have time for.

Excellent, High speed Wi-Fi.

Queen bed, memory foam mattress. Good reading lights.

Private gated/fenced patio with bistro set - surrounded by open space, trees, birds and various other critters.

Smoking allowed outside on the patio only.

This is an unusually large property for Carmel - enclosed by a tall stucco wall. So in addition to the privacy you have lots of open space around you.

Pet Policy: We welcome one dog. Two if really small. Pet fee is $10/night per dog - not included in the rental charge but paid in cash on arrival (keeps the option open and avoids tax). We even have a place to wash your pooch after visiting the beach.

Please check availability before inquiring. Please note that our usual minimum is two nights but holiday periods require a minimum of three nights at the weekend rate. Maximum stay: one week.

Payment Details:

NO cleaning fee.

Contact Sylvia directly for flexible payment options using a credit card.

If you book online with vrbo they will collect 25% at booking and the balance thirty days prior to arrival.

Ideal location - west of 'Highway' 1 in Carmel. Six tenths of a mile from village center (15-20 minute walk along a wooded path) with easy access to Highway 1 and all the local attractions. Just minutes from Monterey and Pacific Grove.

Cancellation Policy: At least thirty days full refund. If within thirty days 50%. However, we will credit the retained deposit towards a future reservation (once).

COTTAGE LOCATION DETAILS:

Parking right in front - no steps or stairs. Paved walkway with motion lights at night.

Easy access to highway 1 as well as to the village. Public transportation is a few steps away.

In a quiet, residential neighborhood about a half mile from downtown Carmel (10-15 minute walk on a path though a park). You can often hear the ocean at night.

Big Sur is only 26 miles south of us. Monterey's famous aquarium is about 10 minutes drive.

We are long time Carmel residents who can share a wealth of information with you - much of it that you won't find in the guide books.

Treat your dog to a romp on Carmel's famous beach. This town is very dog friendly.

If the cottage isn't booked immediately before or after your stay we will gladly invite you to arrive early or stay later on the days you check in and out. Officially it's 3PM check in and 11AM checkout but we call you as soon as it's ready.

Note that we don't charge a cleaning fee - that saves you a lot so we figure you can put your trash in the barrels. We'll handle the rest.

Long time Carmel residents -more than fifty years between us. One retired art gallery owner and one retired custom home builder. We sometimes imagine living somewhere else but Carmel is great to come home to. So we travel...this picture was taken in January 2014 in Todos Santos, Mexico on the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula.

Sylvia Savage purchased this studio in 2009

We are lucky to live here full time. Can't beat the weather, immaculate beaches, clean air, minimal traffic, European village lifestyle.

It's very Car-mellow and so safe that many residents don't even lock their doors.

Total privacy. Easy access to everything. Excellent value. We can advise you as to the best spots for dining, hiking, shopping, etc. Feel like a local without breaking your budget.

PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5
In a word...perfect! A perfect location. Quiet...just nature, and the proximity to town is 'perfect'. A totally separate, private Studio. Cozy, comfortable, and a nicely 'refined' space...perfect for a single traveler or a couple. And the 'perfect' host(s)...they are very thoughtful of the satisfaction of their guests...and it shows! We're close enough to make it a frequent weekend getaway. Lucky us!!

JUST WHAT I WANTED

  • 5 of 5
I had a wonderful stay in Sylvia and Tim's cottage. I felt pampered by all the special and extra amenities that they provided... wine, coffee, tea, sweets and savory snacks. The shower is fantastic and all of the linens, towels and sheets, really are quite luxurious. The bed is super comfy and everything about the stay was peaceful. I felt very welcomed by them and look forward to a return visit.

Yes, much thought went into design and decor. We make it very clear that it's a very small space so there are no surprises. And that has worked well for everyone who has stayed. The patio, quiet location and all the amenities help a lot. Sylvia and Tim

SUCH A WONDERFUL STAY!

  • 5 of 5
Sylvia and Tim were such gracious hosts during our 2 night stay in Carmel. They met us as we pulled up to give us maps to orient ourselves and then showed us the charming studio. It was exactly what we needed for our stay - a comfy bed, mini fridge, warm shower, a bottle of chilled white wine as well!

The walk into town is peaceful and easy, as is the walk to the beach. We spent each morning we were there sipping on coffee from downtown and strolling up and down the beach. We would walk into town, grab a bite to eat and then come back to sit on the patio and read. The studio's proximity to the 17-mile drive entrance was also a huge plus!

We LOVED our stay and definitely plan on returning.

Thank you, Sylvia and Tim!

Owner's Response: Jennifer & Ryan - a nice memory indeed for your engagement motorcycle road trip! People like that the studio is walkable to the town and beach and yet removed enough from the crowds and business of downtown. You two sure packed in a lot in a couple of days. Bravo! Sylvia and Tim

WE'LL BE BACK!

We'll be back!
  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Sylvia's studio for two nights when my husband was biking in the Sea Otter Classic. We brought our 6 month old golden retriever pup with us, and Sylvia was gracious host for both canine and humans alike.

The room itself was immaculate with everything you could want. Coffee pot, mini fridge, microwave, TV and even complimentary drinks and snacks.

The location is close to downtown, parking was easy to find outside the house, and it was a quiet peaceful neighborhood. Sylvia even had a wash area for our sandy pup (though we ended up at the Pet Food Express down the street for a hot water scrub since she got REALLY messy playing at the beach. Thanks for a great stay Sylvia. We'll be back.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Lori. I'm a sucker for sweet doggies like Hana & really enjoy having them here. All the fun without all the responsibility!
I appreciate your mentioning the cleanliness and the amenities too. We've made a small space a cozy nest for two people and a pet... all the basics are there for you. Sylvia and Tim
