I grew up in the bay area and frequently visited Carmel with my family as a child. In the summers, I would enjoy tennis camp and long walks on the beach.

Nancy Hussey purchased this house in 2006

I like this property because its very authentic vintage cottage. The original interior craftsmanship has been preserved. Many of the houses in the Carmel only have two bedrooms and I wanted at least three to accommodate friends and visitors.

All the rooms are very spacious, especially the living room with it's vaulted ceilings. One of the bathrooms was preserved and the other tastefully updated. All the bedrooms are private and quiet. The kitchen is spacious and was recently updated and offers views of the garden through the bay window.

Very charming with mature landscaping, meandering pathways and stone patio. Beautiful mature oak tree graces the front of the house. Walking distance to town and the beach. Bus stop at the corner for those who arrived without a car.

Relaxing stay in beautiful Carmel

  • 5 of 5
This charming cottage was just what we needed for a week in Carmel. The house was spotless and thoughtfully outfitted. Just 5 blocks from the main part of Carmel. An easy walk into town with a steep incline to get back home but we got used to it. We would return again without question.

Great House

  • 5 of 5
The house we very nice, as least as good as the pictures showed. It was comfortable and nicely appointed.

Manager was responsive and quickly took care of the one issue we had.

As others have mentioned, the walk up the hill from town or the beach provides some great exercise.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5
This is an excellent property. Why ? It was immaculately clean and well-furnished. The beds were all comfortable. The kitchen was well-appointed, knives/crockery/glasses all present, and the provision of salt/pepper/spices etc was most welcome. Also the provision of dishwasher tabs - so annoying when you arrive to one tab !!!! TV worked fine and Netflix was an unexpected bonus - our teenage daughters cherished the excellent wifi performance (too much!). The washer/dryer set up in the garage was great and very useful mid-holiday/roadtrip.
The walk back from Carmel is a trifle steep but only a modest workout and there were taxis available. We jogged 15 mins down to the shopping centre at Crossroads (via the lovely Mission trail for a part) and strolled back 30mins with groceries - all very easy.
Carmel is very pleasant - a bit like Disney by the Sea - and has a lovely beach albeit our weather was a bit British, that is grey and luke warm.
Point Lobos reserve a couple of miles south was beautiful - Sea Otters spotted and watched for 20minutes playing and feeding - brilliant. Big Sur to Peffer Beach was an hours drive to and fro' - v.scenic.
We ate out several times in Carmel and the food was always good and reasonable value -the Californian wine was very very good.
Much preferred Carmel to Monterrey albeit Bike Hire from there (at Blazing Saddles, Cannery Row) and riding the coast path both North and South was fabulous. The Monterrey Aquarium was good but not as good for Otters/Seals/Sea Lions at Point Lobos. Stay away from Sly McFlys in Monterrey - our only bad meal in 3 USA weeks.
The drive to Pebble Beach ($10 access fee per day) is really worth it, and as a Golfer, it was great to be able to saunter to the 18th green and watch a couple of groups come home - I will be back to play it (and several others if I am spared and favoured).
Suggestion at the Cottage would be for a curtain on the front door for night-time privacy (we improvised with large maps!), and maybe slide bolts on all external doors for extra peace of mind - that said, we never felt threatened but a little extra comfort might be good. Great Place - thank you.

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5
Our weekend stay at this charming cottage in Carmel was lovely. Self check-in and out was very convenient, the house was clean and the furniture was comfortable. The owner provided "starter" paper products as well as soaps & detergents which was much appreciated. The kitchen was adequately equipped although we didn't really cook any meals with so many fabulous restaurants to choose from. We would love to return again in the future!

Wonderful Property!

  • 5 of 5
We spent an amazing week at this lovely home. The home was very clean, provided every amenity one would want, and exceeded our expectations. The location is very convenient to Carmel-by-the-Sea, the Monterey Peninsula, and the Big Sur coastline. The best compliment that I can pay is that we felt completely at home- relaxed, safe, and happy. We would definitely stay here again.

The pictures of this house don't do the house justice. It's actually a larger home that I expected and was very well appointed, very clean, and in great condition. I was very pleasantly surprised and impressed.
