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, mini 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).

One luggage rack at foot of bed; if you have large luggage we can store it for you. There is a hanging closet plus several empty shelves.

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 (it's too small for a long stay unless it's a single person).

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.

Quaint and lovely studio in Carmel

  • 5 of 5
A quiet and lovely way to see Carmel area. Within walking distance to downtown. We arrived at a lovely bungalow studio. We were greeted by the owner with a sense of warmth and hospitality. We highly recommend staying there.

Great Customer Service too!

  • 5 of 5
We had a very pleasant stay at the studio apartment. It is a quiet place, and most importantly safe. It is easy access to the beach, downtown area and highway. We really liked Bruno's Groceries and Angelo's pizza. Our mini schnauzers also had a great time.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Chris. Yes, safe for sure - many people don't bother to lock their doors around here. This is a nice neighborhood, mostly full time residents who know each other. Privacy, quiet, safety and pleasant surroundings make for a great getaway. Your doggies are so sweet! Thanks for posting a review. Sylvia and Tim

We stayed here for four nights and the studio was absolutely perfect! What a beautiful space--great decor and an intuitive design with everything you could possibly need including a comfortable bed, TV, and complimentary toiletries, snacks, coffee, and even a bottle of wine! Sylvia and Tim are very respectful of your time and privacy, but were an absolute pleasure to meet and converse with. You won't find another couple as accommodating as these two. They are also full of recommendations for sightseeing and dining! We thoroughly enjoyed the adorable patio and were assured that our talking at night wouldn't be bothersome, as their bedroom is on the opposite side of their adjacent house. The location is great and it's extremely easy to get downtown (only a 10-15 minute walk). We can't imagine having a better Carmel experience than we did in this studio and can't wait to go back and visit again!

Owner's Response: We loved hearing about your daily adventures....it's so nice when people just chill out like you did and enjoy the vibe of Carmel. We know the best places to eat, to visit etc. and are happy to advise our guests if they want our input. If not, total privacy is theirs. You were delightful; thanks so much! Sylvia and Tim

Comfortable Spot In a Residential Area

  • 5 of 5
We spent our honeymoon here and found it to be just right for us. Sylvia and Tim are very gracious hosts. There was wine and snacks waiting for us when we arrived. The studio had everything we could ever need including a lint roller! It is a close walk in to town for shopping and restaurants. Sylvia has a lot of interesting plants and there is a lot to see on the property. She sent us home with a small bag of succulents to plant! It's a great place to stay and you can have as much or as little interaction with Sylvia and Tim as you wish to.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for being such great guests. Carmel is a great honeymoon spot and the studio offers as much privacy as you want. We enjoy interacting with our guests if they so desire & I love talking about our landscaping project. I have so many succulents that I'm happy to send people home with cuttings. It's a fun thing to share.

Such terrific hosts and what a beautiful place to stay! Sylvia and Tim are the nicest, most accommodating people you'll ever meet. We enjoyed our visit with them so very much. As everyone else has said, the unit exceeded our expectations. It was extremely well stocked, above and beyond what we hoped for. Their home and grounds are also stunning - true artists' palettes! The location is central to downtown and the main beach where our dog could run free (leashless). We also enjoyed nearby Garland Regional Park, about 20 minutes away in beautiful Carmel Valley. We took two separate hikes about six miles each, and the paths did not cross. The place is huge, with magnificent scenery, free parking, no entry fee, free loaner maps (you'll need one), and your well-behaved dog may go off the leash through the whole park. The weather was warmer at the park, so be prepared with a hat and water (though there are a few drinking fountains around). There are nice, clean restrooms as well. Thank you Sylvia and Tim for such an awesome vacation break. We will see you next time!

Owner's Response: Joe and Kelly (and Shelby) - what wonderful guests you were. Thanks for the nice comments about our grounds....still very much in progress. Also for mentioning Garland Park for hiking - I forget to let people know about that wonderful resource. It was a pleasure having you here. Sylvia and Tim

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!!
