Our romance began in 1961 when Diane came to Carmel at age 22 to be a 4th grade teacher at Carmel River School. Out of the Blue, 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.
Chuck and Diane Elliott purchased this cottage in 2000
Of course, we always wished we had bought a place when we first lived here, and never really thought we would ever own a home in Carmel. But finally Out of the Blue we made the big step and bought our special spot in May 2000
We hope you enjoy our home and this beautiful area, and will return many times. Chuck and Diane Elliott
What a perfect Carmel hideaway this home is!

Beautiful house with great attention to detail. Well stocked with everything you need. Private, relaxing back yard with fire pit and grill. Right on Ocean Ave with easy access to town. Follow Ocean Ave straight down to Carmel Beach. Forest theater just around corner. Large bedrooms and nicely flowing living room, dining room, and kitchen. Chuck and Diane are a delight. Of note, about 10 steps up to main level with a bedroom on ground level. Ocean Ave is relatively steep from Junipero to Carpenter. Drive way was also relatively steep. These were not issues for me.
This is a charming house well equipped with all things necessary for a relaxing stay in Carmel.
It is located on one of the main streets but it was not noisy at all. If you choose to walk downtown there is a sidewalk- walking back up may be a bit steep but not too bad. Easy access to Route 1 and the 17 Mile Drive with its golf courses.
The owners made us feel most welcome and we highly recommend this property!
Out of The Blue is a true reflection of the town in which it is located...charming! Attention to detail abounds thought the home, and there is comfort too...nice beds with fine linens, plush chairs etc. Every nook in the house is cozy and inviting. The town of Carmel is a short walk away which is an added bonus; and the beach is not too far provided you are physically fit and can walk up hills. Kudos to the owners who have made this home available to those of us that can only dream what it is like to live in this heavenly place !
Out of the blue is out of the world. Great place to stay in carmel. Close to route 1 and a close drive to the beach. Just wish it was walking distance to the beach. You may be able to walk to the beach, but due to the large hill, getting back up would be challenging for most.
We absolutely loved Out of the Blue! The cottage was charming and well stocked with linens, kitchen supplies, even spices. The location was just a short walk into town and a shorter drive to Highway One. And the neighbors were extremely friendly and helpful. We felt like we were at home. This was our second visit to Carmel and hope it won't be the last.
