Great location. 1 block from the beach. Can hear the waves at night, even with the windows closed. 1 of 3 cottages on the property and maintains privacy. In a quiet residential neighborhood just a few blocks and a short walk to “downtown” Carmel.
One of the most accommodating hosts - even provides a nice welcome package with nuts and local coffee.
There is no stove but otherwise the kitchen is well stocked and usable for in house meals.
We enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning next year.
Dragonfly Cottage is delightful - the setting is beautiful, the cottage is sweet and well-equipped, and Mary Jane and her husband are lovely to work with.
We had a couple of unlucky equipment issues and they were immediately responsive to us and did their best to resolve them quickly. We thought they were very nice people and that the issues we experienced were just ordinary repairs that had unfortunate timing, so it really did not diminish our feelings for the cottage at all. Our only wishes would have been that the hot tub area have some light for nighttime use and for the cover to the hot tub be easier to remove. Otherwise - it is an outstanding one-room cottage that is more than big enough for a couple of people to spread out in.
The bed and other furnishings were very comfortable, the Wi-Fi was strong, and the view from the deck was fantastic. The nearby town of Corralitos was so sweet - we loved the coffee shop, pizza place, and market. People we encountered were very friendly and we really enjoyed the authentic vibe of being well off of the "tourist trail" by staying in this little corner of the Santa Cruz mountains. We would love to go back to Dragonfly Cottage again.
