Our romance began in 1961 when Diane came to Carmel to be a 4th grade teacher at Carmel River School. She met Chuck who had just left the Navy's Blue Angels and was enrolled in the Naval Postgraduate School. In 1964 we were married and began a life together. Through the years, as a Navy family, we lived many places, but always returned to Carmel to visit our old friends and to bask in the beauty of the area. Of course, we always wished we had bought a place when we first lived here, and never really thought we would ever live in Carmel

Chuck and Diane Elliott purchased this cottage in 2000

In 2004 we fell in love with Sundance, a rustic and secluded home on a half acre overlooking Hatton Canyon. We immediately bought it, sold our home in Del Mar, and became Carmelites. We love it here and have never looked back. Our family and friends enjoyed staying in the guest cottage, and after our son built a magnificent deck around it we christened it 'Moonglow' and decided to offer it as a vacation rental. As you can see from the guestbook, it has been very popular.

Moonglow is close to everything in Carmel, the Monterey Peninsula, Carmel Valley and Big Sur, yet secluded and quiet.

Home away from home

We immensely appreciated all of the small touches in our cozy cottage. Like a home away from home!

The weather was wonderful as the intermittent showers cleaned the air for some gorgeous sunshine.

Loved the Aquarium and our sojourn to Big Sur. What's not to like about the Peninsula? Beautiful country.

Chuck & Diane,

Heather & I really loved your place. Just what we needed to get away for a few days. So close to so many fun things to do and a great base camp to explore the Big Sur coastline!

Thank you!

Dear Diane & Chuck,

I absolutely adore the private oasis that you both created. We both felt at home here during our stay at Moonglow. The wine was delicious and the hot tube was a relaxing way to end each day.

Thanks for helping make our trio so magical and relaxing. I wish you luck on all your travels and we will definitely be back.

PS I love all the purple!

Dear Diane & Chuck,

Thank you for a wonderful stay. We biked & definitely enjoyed the hot tub. We visited the museum also - fantastic!

Thank you also for the lovely gift of wine - we certainly were thrilled to be back in Carmel after a 30+ year lapse.

Hope to see you another time soon.

A quiet, peaceful getaway -the cottage was cozy and comfortable and we enjoyed the use of the hot tub. Thank you for the Aquarium passes. Loved watching the sea otters. We loved having the use of the bikes, but unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate. Thank you for your hospitality.

Thanks, Moonglow

Thanks, Moonglow,

The rhythm of the rain, the crickets in the dark, absolute symphonies of bird song in the mornings. Rabbit, mule deer, hawk, banana slug; no critter was lost to our eyes and ears. Daily strolls through the Reserve, member access at the Aquarium and nightly stews in the enchanted hot tub, complete with the flicker of candles. Moonglow, and those who so lovingly tend her and make hearts welcome, will forever be woven in our dreams.

With joy.

Anya & Christopher
