COTTAGE LOCATION DETAILS:
Parking right in front - no steps or stairs. Paved walkway with motion lights at night. Safe and comfortable.
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 (15-20 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.
