Overview

Overview

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.

About Sylvia Savage

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

Why Sylvia Savage chose Carmel

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.

What makes this studio unique

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.

Delightful retreat

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a lovely stay in the cozy yet very comfortable lodgings. The studio has all a couple would need and then some. A short walk to downtown or to the beach, complete with a private patio and a comfortable bed it proved a wonderful retreat after spending the day exploring Carmel.
We had a delightful stay and enjoyed every minute.

Owner's Response: Thanks! It really is a 'petite retreat' as one guest commented. All you and that sweet pooch, Riley, needed after a fun day in Carmel.
We appreciate your kind words. Sylvia and Tim

Wonderful visit!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I visited Carmel for the first time last month and couldn't have found more perfect lodging for our visit! Sylvia and Tim have created the most comfortable and cozy space and provided everything we could have possibly wanted or needed for our stay. The studio is the perfect size with luxury linens, a stocked fridge with waters,soda and wine, a coffee bar, and snacks. Likewise, the bath was furnished with everything you might need. They were wonderful hosts with great restaurant tips ( loved the Flying Fish), maps and brochures. Parking was easy in the quaint, quiet neighborhood, and we enjoyed the short walk to town in the morning and sometimes in the evening. You're a hop and a skip from so many interesting areas (17mile Drive, Monterey, Big Sur.) You can't find a more pleasant spot: convenient, beautiful, sparkling clean, friendly hosts, and very affordable. Thank you, Sylvia and Tim! We hope to return one day!

Pure Bliss!!!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a fantastic long weekend in Carmel! We live in the Bay Area and visit Carmel often, but this was our first stay at Sylvia and Tim's cottage. Wow, what a hidden gem. The studio is very comfortable, great linens, comfy mattress, large windows for light and a nice breeze, and very well appointed. You arrive to chilled wine, other beverages, fresh ground coffee, and lots of snacks. (We loved the snacks! Thank you!) It also has a microwave, coffee maker, and all that jazz. They even give you a walking map of Carmel and flashlights to use in the evening. The cottage also has a large, gated private patio that is just beautiful - lush with gorgeous plants and outdoor art work. We have a dog, so we actually left the door of the cottage open most of the time so Bella could walk in and out. Yes, it's that safe and private.
Another important note: It is very quiet and you are only short walk from the shopping district. I loved this! My spouse was able to read and I was able to walk to town with our pup and shop. Perfect!
Sylvia and Tim's home is adjacent to the cottage. They are lovely and totally respected our privacy. I enjoyed getting to know them and look forward to visiting them on our next stay.
It really is a hidden gem, one that Sylvia and Tim have been creating for quite some time. The attention to detail throughout their home, gardens, and cottage is amazing. Their home and gardens are magnificent, truly a work of art! And if you want a tour, I'm sure they will give you one! They gave us one. Delightful.
Sylvia and Tim, Thank you again for your wonderful hospitality. We look forward to our next visit!
Haile, Jill, and Little Bella

Owner's Response: Not feeling like a tourist is one aspect many have mentioned. Here you're in a neighborhood yet very close to the commercial district. Best of both worlds. Glad you liked the space and the amenities. Thanks so much. Sylvia and Tim

Cottage Review

  • 5 of 5
The Cottage was more than we could imagine. The Front Door was the first clue we had found something special. The interior space all new remodeled in great fashion gave us that ole Carmel feeling. More design in this small space than you would find in an expensive Carmel Hotel. All the extras that would you find at no cost plus the luxurious towels, the parking was great, did not have to circle the block to find a spot, Our Hosts were gracious and accomodating not to mention inspiring with all the work they have done to this property, they are a Great Team. It was nice to be in a neighborhood and take a morning walk without feeling like a tourist.
