Atherton Cottage

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 24, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
This is a lovely cottage in Carmel. I would call the interior décor "High End Beach." There is a great deck on the side of the home facing the ocean. The deck has plexi-glass inserts so small children and pets can't fall off the deck. We really appreciated this for our 12 pound Bichon Frise, Snowflake. The positioning of the house on the hillside makes it very private, so you can enjoy leaving the window treatments open all day. The bed was set up as a king size bed for us and was very comfortable! The living area with the TV and fireplace were very enjoyable. Marietta, the house manager, was great! She is so cheerful and eager to help. We really enjoyed dealing with her during our stay. Guests who have difficulty climbing stairs might not do well here as there are lots of steps up to the front door. The kitchen area is very compact and narrow. Only one person at a time can comfortably be working behind the kitchen counter. (This was not a problem for us.) The bathtub in the bathroom is a little worn and needs to be resurfaced. The tile in the bathtub surround could also use some updating. There is no chest of drawers in the bedroom. The only drawers are in the night stands on each side of the bed. Most clothing must be hung in the closet. The washer/dryer is located in a room below the house which you must access from outside. The room in which it is located is not very inviting, kind of like an old basement. Also, lots of items are stored in the same room, and must be avoided when walking to the washer/dryer. The owner might consider some ways to make the washer/dryer room a little more inviting for guests who have an extended stay like we did. Please note these items are just suggestions and didn't create any problems for us. We had a wonderful time in the Atherton Cottage and are already planning another for next year.

A Perfect Gateaway !

The cottage is stylish, yet homey and comfortable. With the lounges on the deck, it was just as relaxing staying at the cottage as walking on the beach. I would and will be recommending it to people so they can share our great experience. Marietta was excellent in looking after us and helping us with all our arrangements for our stay.

We loved our stay here !

The staff was all very kind and helpful. We drove through Big Sur and loved McKay falls. We visited Point Lobos repeatedly. Probably the best hiking, views and wildlife, just a few miles away. For food we enjoyed Crepes of Brittany on the Wharf, (the owner is from France, delightful,) Fish Wife restaurant and the clam chowder at old Fisherman's Grotto.
We kayaked and saw the seals, otters and so many birds. We had a great time and this place is a wonderful, relaxing wonderful spot to return to!!

We enjoyed our stay tremendously !

After having a bad experience at another place, we were hesitant to book this offer. We had been on vacation for almost a month and not having luck with the other rental we had chosen, we decided to go back home and forget about it. However it was not our desire to finish our vacation on a low note and ventured to try Atherton cottage. I am so happy we did that. It would have been a shame not to visit this area, beautiful hikes, the ocean, the beauty of this little town. Sanctuary services were superb and especially Marietta so kind, considerate and professional. We have decided to come back next year and stay for a longer time. Thanks Marietta, Joyce and all the team at Sanctuary. You guys made a difference on our final week of vacation.

Visited Carmel Beach almost daily with Jack and Cooper. Wonderful sand and the boys enjoyed meeting so many other dogs. Point Lobos is spectacular. So many wonderful restaurants, we also made wonderful meals in the kitchen with supplies from the local markets. Thank you again for refreshing our souls.

Perfect Get-Away Spot!

Loving detail in every room! Everything you would need to enjoy your stay has been provided for in this little cottage. I especially liked the seaside decor, kitchen gadgets and quality of the towels and bedding. There are little "extras" everywhere you look: DVDs of movies, bath gel in the shower, comfy robes in the closet. I loved being in a neighborhood and out of all the tourist zones. Makes you feel like you're coming home. It was lovely to hang out on the deck with wine and cheese and peek at the ocean. Even though we didn't use the OTHER deck with the grill, I am sure many people would enjoy having a bar-b-que out there.The property management is excellent and I would certainly stay here again. Thank you for providing such a pleasant home!

Beautiful cottage & stay! Would love to return. Felt like home. The deck was a great place to enjoy the afternoon sun & view, as well as morning coffee. Loved all the different outdoor seating areas. The cottage was clean, well stocked and so cozy! This location was also wonderful. Beds were comfortable as well as the couch! Fireplaces were great too...Loved the little tags on all the switches. Thank you! My Mom, dogs and I loved our stay!
P.S. Loved the Aquarium passes and the cheese and wine were yummy!
