Carmel Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2BR+/2.5BA+ ~ Sleeps 4-6

This sweet 2+ bedroom Comstock cottage, built in 1930 and located in a quiet neighborhood in Carmel-by-the-Sea, has been loving updated with modern features while keeping the charm of the past. Enjoy your morning coffee in the private Carmel stone front patio or relax in the evening beside one of the three original fireplaces. Wood floors, beamed ceilings, latched interior doors, Carmel stone fireplaces and thoughtfully appointed furnishings create a cozy retreat for your stay.

Each private bedroom has its own bathroom.

Master Bedroom #1 – This bright yet soothing bedroom features a pitched beamed ceiling, cozy window seat and gas Carmel stone fireplace. The queen-size bed is tucked into a windowed nook. The attached bathroom has a shower/tub combo with marble surround and a single sink marble topped vanity.

Master Bedroom #2 - Gaze out from the queen size bed through the French doors onto a private garden patio with bistro set. Board and batten walls and a petite chandelier compliment this sweet retreat. The attached bathroom showcases a subway tile shower and single sink marble topped vanity and marble floors.

Each of the cottage's bathrooms have been loving remodeled or updated with marble, tile and new fixtures. Please see photos.

The nicely equipped kitchen features granite counter tops, new stainless steel appliances, a skylight, super-quiet dishwasher and shares a gas Carmel stone fireplace with the attached dining area.

You can dine 'at home' and enjoy a meal in the dining area which is surrounded by windows that overlook the garden and Carmel stone main patio. The cottage style dining set includes four chairs and a bench for seating six.

A fifteen minute scenic walk through a beautiful residential neighborhood puts you in the heart of Carmel-by-the-Sea and all the shops, galleries and restaurants it has to offer.

2 complimentary passes to the Monterey Bay Aquarium are available to use during your stay. The passes allow you to enter the Aquarium a half hour before the general public.

Our concierge will greet you at the cottage upon check-in to assure everything is satisfactory for your stay and a petite basket of snacks will be ready for you to enjoy as you settle in.

**Due to open fireplaces, furnishings and floor outlets, this property is not suitable for children. **

**There is a 3rd private bedroom/bathroom suite with a full bed available for an additional fee. Photos can be emailed if interested.**

A little about the builder, Hugh Comstock:

'Hugh Comstock developed the Fairy Tale style of architecture with which Carmel has become closely identified. Born in Evanston, Illinois in 1893, Comstock moved to Santa Rosa with his family in 1907. In 1924, he came to Carmel to visit his sister and met and married Mayotta Brown. The two decided to remain in Carmel as Mayotta had a successful doll making business. Comstock's career as a designer-builder began when his wife asked him to build a cottage for her dolls. The 'Doll's House' became the first of many Fairy Tale style cottages he would design and build.' (Historic Context Statement Carmel-by-the-Sea, page 96)

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a perfect place to spend our 20th wedding anniversary! We absolutely loved our time here at Endswell Cottage. We had the best lunch at The Grill and special dinner at Cassanova's (table 29 is the best).



The cottage is so lovely, quiet and cozy. We look forwarad to coming back for our 25th!

Best Carmel Vacation Home Yet!

  • 5 of 5
We've stayed at a few places while visiting Carmel in the past years. Endswell Cottage is by far, the best of the bunch. I tend to review, review, review when scouting a new place for my family to stay. I leave no stone unturned. Endswell Cottage did not disappoint us. It was as good, or even better, than the photos.

Location was perfect. From the cottage, we went on several morning walks and runs through town. It is a 2 minute drive into town if walking is not preferred. Parking at the cottage was easy (room for two cars).

The cottage itself. Oh, the cottage. SO beautiful. We kept saying "We could live here.". The best part about the cottage is the layout. The rooms are separated from one another (they share no common walls with each other), so it's easy to have privacy. The living room is large and the furnishings are great. The kitchen is well appointed, large and new. We loved the fireplaces. Being gas, they were easy to turn on and off to suit our needs. It was also great having a washer and dryer. The bathrooms were not huge, but by no means too tiny. They were all nicely updated.

The best part of the cottage for me was the light. The light throughout the day was so beautiful. The cottage has amazing windows that let in the softest light. If you are a photography enthusiast, it's a great spot to take pictures of your guests.

Having stayed at other Carmel properties, we normally come across furnishings or bedding that are well loved and need replacing. Endswell Cottage was none of that. Everything was in great shape and the cottage felt VERY clean.

We did use the 3rd bedroom/bathroom studio. It's a great location for a 3rd couple.

My only recommendations for the owners (and by no means do these make this less than a 5 star stay), would be:
1. More pillows please! We love lots of pillows at night. Would be nice to have a few extra stashed in the closet.
2. Maybe a couple extra blankets as well for cooler nights.
3. The courtyard is so quaint and lovely. However, I would love to see lights on the step down from right outside the front door into the courtyard. That pesky step blends in well and 3 of our party members fell down the step as they didn't see it. We put the welcome mat there to help illuminate this step.
4. In the summer months, I can see wanting very cushy-comfy chairs in the courtyard for enjoying how beautiful it is. This is a nice-to-have of course :-)

We plan to be back as much as we can. Seriously, you can't go wrong renting here

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the wonderful review! We are so glad you enjoyed the cottage, especially the light. It is wonderful to experience the light throughout the day in the cottage. Additional pillows and blankets are a good idea. We will look into additional outdoor light to highlight the step down you mentioned. We have the path lights and "moon" light installed in the oak tree, but it sounds like more light is needed. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. We look forward to having you back and thanks again the lovely review!

Great time in Carmel! Thank you, we really enjoyed your beautifully well-cared for home and used it as a base to travel from the Monterey Aquarium to Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park. We spent a day close by at Point Lobos. Endswell was perfect - private, quiet, comfortable with restaurants, beaches, 17 mile drive just a few minutes away (try Yafa).

Great House - Great Location

  • 5 of 5
We had 2 couples - accommodations were perfect - we could walk to town - neighborhood is peaceful - we saw deer walking down the street at night - it was awesome! - I would highly recommend this place to one or two couples. You will need a car if you plan to sight see beyond Carmel by the Sea, but the walk to town is very doable and enjoyable. So much to do and see just in the town itself. Beaches are beautiful. House has everything you need - both bedrooms have their own bathrooms and there is also a laundry room which was so great to have. We loved it so much we plan to go back next year!!

Lovely!

Thanks you for a wonderful stay at Endswell Cottage. There were five of us travelling to Carmel for a family wedding and we wanted the convenience and fun of being able to share roomy accommodation rather than rent hotel rooms. The additional bedroom suite was perfect for our 20 year old son. The beds are super comfortable and each bedroom has its own ensuite which was so convenient with 5 people trying to get ready for a wedding! The location is convenient and tranquil. Make sure you leave time to enjoy the garden sitting area and the cottage! We would definitely stay here again on a return trip to the beautiful Carmel area.

Exceptional Property

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful week at Endswell Cottage in Carmel, and cannot recommend it more highly. It is a charming cottage, within walking distance of the wonderful restaurants and shops in Carmel. The beds are VERY comfortable, the kitchen and dining area are spacious and nicely appointed, and the living room very wonderful for good conversation or TV. The garden is charming (though the plants could use some watering), and the concierge service assured that our needs were attended to. This is a VERY high recommendation
