About Cheryl Assemi

My family and I have lived in the area since 2008. Purchasing, remodeling and restoring Moon Gate Cottage was a labor of love which took most of 2012 to complete and something we strive to maintain. We wanted it to look the way, we felt, it always should have.

Cheryl Assemi purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Cheryl Assemi chose Carmel

For us, it was love at first sight. Moon Gate and our other 4 listings (Log Haven 937413, Tradewinds 938557, Home Port 938549 and Sky Way 938553) reside on one property, collectively called the Carmel Cottage Inn. The cottages are full time vacation rentals with hotel status, which allows us to rent by the night. The gardens and patios are designed to give each cottage a feeling of privacy. The proximity of our cottages, patios and gardens to each other, as well as to the beach and downtown Carmel, make them equally ideal for a single cottage rental or for larger groups, family reunions, etc. To keep the houses fresh for longer visits, we arrange for periodic light housekeeping for stays of 3 nights or longer.

What makes this cottage unique

Built in the 1940's, Moon Gate Cottage is a charming little home away from home. With it's hand stenciled wood floors, the marbled, lighted 'Moon Gate', or sinking back into the couches at the end of an eventful day. We hope our guests will love Moon Gate Cottage as much as we do.

Even better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, cozy and inviting in the perfect Carmel-By-The-Sea location just a block off the beach and tucked away in its own, sunny little secret garden. Cheryl made us feel right at home -- what a delightful experience, we will be back!

Loved our family stay

  • of 5

Moon Gate Cottage was wonderful, my family (2 adults, 2 small kids) loved our stay in this charming cottage. The place is immaculately clean (kudos to the cleaning crew, you would think the president was staying there!) It is also well stocked with anything you may need for your stay. I loved the fine touches of the welcome note, nuts, sparkling cider, coffee beans and bday note/gift card for my husband. My kids loved the tic tac toe game and we all loved the fireplace. The location is awesome, one block from the beach and ten minute walk to downtown. If you go out walking at night I highly recommend a flashlight and reflectors, they definitely help since the residential streets are dark.

We got to meet and chat with the owner Cheryl when we arrived and left, she is so personable and caring. You can tell she takes pride in her work as a vacation rental owner. We will definitely be back!

P.S. Our little kids loved the little secluded moon gate, and I had to shoosh them many times when outside of the house because the grounds were so quiet. I can see this place as a single or romantic getaway. Or even a girls getaway.

Beautiful and peaceful stay

  • 5 of 5

Over more than 20 years, my husband and I have stayed at many cottages and inns in both Carmel and Pacific Grove, but Moon Gate at Carmel Cottage Inns is, without a doubt, our favorite. The impeccably maintained gardens with expansive growths of fuschia and other beautiful and robust flowers offer both serenity and privacy.

The cottages are warm, comfortable, and meticulously clean. The effort that the family has put in to every small detail to make the cottages a wonderful place for guests to stay is evident. We will always come back here.

Perfect location, idyllic Carmel surf.

  • 5 of 5

The location really cannot be beaten. If you like going to sleep listening to the surf, but enjoy being just far enough away from the main street that you don't hear traffic, then what a wonderful place to stay. Very short walks to everything...restaurants, shopping...the beach! Cannot say enough about the location. Cheryl, is a wonderful and very inviting property owner who was so gracious to us during our stay. We will be back very soon, and highly recommend Moon Gate Cottage!

Could Not Have Been More Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The little cottage was all it was cracked up to be -- beautiful flowers and plantings everywhere, the cutest little house with fire place a blazing, beachy feeling kitchen with anything you might need, cozy living room and bed room. A block from a beautiful walk way along the beach -- it was all so refreshing and well taken care of. Cheryl and Connie could not have been more helpful and nice. It was a truly positive experience of the very best kind. THANK YOU!

best just got better

  • 5 of 5

The Cottages have just gotten better under the new local ownership group.

Third year we've stayed in one or more of the five Cottages and everything has been improved on; landsacping, new paint, new floors, new furniture & fixtures, everything that needed upgrading, was.

The bed was so good, we had to write to the owner's to find out the make and model.

Still the best location for a stay in Carmel, close enough to walk to town, but far enough away that you do not feel the traffic, and the relaxing surf is just audible enough to put you to sleep.

Moon Gate is the most private Cottage for a single or couple that want to get away, and what a great private sun patio.
