Carmel Cottage Rental Photos and Description
1 bedroom, 1 full bathroom, living room, kitchen - sleeps up to 4

Moon Gate is the most secluded cottage set within the garden of the Carmel Cottage Inn. It has a king bedroom, a living room with a sofa/sleeper and gas fireplace, a kitchen and an outside brick patio just perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning.

This picturesque property is just steps from Carmel Beach, the Pacific Ocean and downtown Carmel. With nearby shopping and boutiques, restaurants, golf, scenic drives and so much more, this is the perfect destination for your next getaway.

Just one block from Carmel Beach and a few blocks away from downtown Carmel.

(Maximum occupancy 4)

My family and I have lived in the area for 6 years. Purchasing, remodeling and restoring Moon Gate Cottage was a labor of love for us which took most of 2012 to complete. We wanted it to look the way, we felt, it always should have.

Cheryl Assemi purchased this cottage in 2011

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, the Carmel Cottage Inn. We are a full time vacation rental 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.

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.

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!

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.
