We have been residents of Carmel Valley for 25 years and can't imagine living anywhere else. We love it here! The beauty, tranquility and the people make it a paradise for us. We are both artists, a painter and a sculptor, and our studio is on our property. Our gorgeous views from the only mesa in Carmel Valley make our property one of the most unique in the valley. Bixby, our wonderful standard poodle, shares our property and loves to hike with us in the many parks in our area. He is also a therapy dog and visits patients at our local hospital. Come and share the bounty of life in the Carmel Valley / Carmel area.

Chris Sawyer purchased this cottage in 1994

It is beautiful here! Our location is in the sun belt of Carmel Valley – beyond the coastal fog most of the time. It’s a short drive to shopping, services, dining and entertainment plus unlimited outdoor sports and recreation. The local airport is 20 minutes away.

This unique property is truly a private, tranquil adult retreat. A garden of native plants, a meadow and dozens of old oak trees surround Frank Lloyd Wright style architecture on a mesa that overlooks the Carmel River. Expansive views of rock outcroppings and the hills beyond offer a backdrop for endless bird activity. Our location is the best of both worlds.....equi-distant from shopping in the town of Carmel and wine tasting in Carmel Valley Village. Here is an ideal setting for a peaceful, relaxing stay while experiencing all the Monterey Peninsula has to offer.

Perfect cottage

We enjoyed this cottage immensely. It is beautifully laid out, handsomely furnished, and has all that you need for comfortable, even elegant, living. We were blessed by unusually clear weather and so were able to enjoy the outdoor deck in the afternoon sunshine. The owners, a painter and a sculptor, were helpful in all respects and delightful to know. They gave us complete privacy but were available when needed. We enjoyed the daily visits of their large poodle, Bixby, who stayed only as long as wanted.

Staying at the Casita in Carmel Valley was a truly pleasurable experience. We loved the gorgeous home, the artistic touches, the coziness, and the fantastic kitchen. Everything was even better than we expected. The property is also beautiful. You have stunning views of the local mountains and regional parks, and you are located on top of a mesa overlooking the Carmel river. The property is covered in lovely oak trees and beautiful artwork crafted by Robin and Chris. Everything is warm and welcoming. Oh and their dog, Bixsby, is adorable and very loving. He comes right in to say hi and to snuggle.
I can only say wonderful things about this weekend experience, and I highly recommend staying here for anyone who wants to get away to Carmel/Big Sur.

What a fabulous place! Chris and Robin have spared no detail. The architectural style is perfect for their location - we loved the high ceilings and the beautiful views of the oaks and the canyon. The furnishings are high end and thoughtful. What a pleasure to be surrounded with the owner's painting and sculpture. We were in town for a conference in Pacific Grove but we hated to leave the property. Highly recommended!

Stay in a work of art! With luxury comforts!

Step into an architect-designed "cottage" in a modern, naturalistic, wood-rich style with 10-foot ceilings throughout. It is tastefully and uniquely decorated, so you will be dwelling INSIDE ART and ARCHITECTURE, not just viewing it from OUTSIDE. Aesthetics and nature are all around -- the warm “salmon” and cool “fog” palettes of the interior decor reflect the sensibilities of your painter hostess whose current paintings interpret organic forms. The furnishings are blend of traditional Stickley neo-mission styles with some mid-century modern overtones. You sculptor host chose and installed many of the rustic but elegant structural and finish materials of this jewel abode including the beamed ceiling, the doors and the windows. You will see mixed examples of his abstract The site of the artists' home, studio and cottage is totally secluded and private, up on a small mesa, surrounded by well-groomed coastal oaks. The ample windows of the cottage’s rooms look over the foliage of young native oaks, yet there is plentiful sunshine and natural light pouring in throughout the cottage and the deck. What perfect architectural integration of the cottage with the site and the trees!

This is a peaceful, beautiful, private and quiet escape. You are only a 15-minute drive to Carmel on the coast. When in the Monterey area, we often stay at Carmel Valley Ranch (CVR) resort suites, which is just up the road from the artists' property. Although CVR is definitely beautiful, spacious, luxurious and comfortable, it is all those things in a cookie-cutter resort kind of way. So we found the artists' cottage to be a superior and unique alternative for our experimental tastes.

Did I mention the cottage creature comforts? As other guests have mentioned... bedding, towels, furnishings and appliances are quite new, immaculate and working. We prefer accommodations with a kitchen because we like control over what we eat, rather than being at the mercy of unknown restaurants. The cottage has a well-equipped kitchen. You can see from the VRBO photos that there is a real oven in the nice new gas range. I really appreciated the stainless steel pots and pan – no Teflon, yeah! The gas grill on the deck will preheat up to a nice high temperature for properly grilling steak. The cottage has cable TV service if you care. Frankly, we caught up on our “not required” reading! And the cable broadband internet service for reading on our iPads was wicked fast!
