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.
Booking only on the vrbo site; if you want to reserve just make a booking request. Or, if you're not sure and have questions, just call.
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).
NO cleaning fee. Our rental agreement asks only that when leaving that you put your trash in the outside barrels and leave any permanent cups/glasses you used on the counter.
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.
