Luxury in the heart of Carmel

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about how wonderful this property is. Our hosts, Barb and Terry, are gracious and accommodating. They have thought of every possible need one might have as a pilgrim. We have never stayed in a place that was more graciously appointed than this precious cottage. The bed is very comfortable and the cottage is beautifully decorated. We enjoyed sitting on the adjacent patio and feeding the numerous birds that come to visit. The cottage is surrounded by gorgeous landscaping and the whole experience is just calming and pleasurable.

Thanks so much Terry and Barb for sharing your lovely space with us. We look forward to a return trip soon!

Sincerely, Patty and James.

Comfy, Cozy

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely cottage with the most comfortable bed ever made. It provided a perfect home base for trips both near (Monterey and Carmel Beach) and far (San Francisco and Yosemite). It feels quite roomy for a studio and I loved the patio area for reading/relaxing in the afternoon sun. Barb and Terry are lovely hosts who never infringe on your personal space. We prefer cooking over restaurants, but since we couldn't locate the outdoor grill, we made do with the cooktop. If you're directionally challenged like me, don't leave without your phone or GPS, even if you're just going up to the Safeway. We spent seven days there and I got turned around or lost every single time coming home. Nothing made me happier than to finally see that latticed gate with the pretty flowers. Barb is extra thoughtful to light it up after dark, because between the mist and the lack of street lights, I might still be driving in circles! Navigation aside, I highly recommend this comfy, cozy cottage; I never slept so well on a vacation in my life. When you throw in the magnificent weather and the most beautiful parts of California, well...you just can't go wrong with booking a stay here.

Lovely Room - wonderful amenities

  • 4 of 5

The room was wonderful - we have owned vacation rentals ourselves and would highly recommend the room and they owners are very welcoming and add some extra goodies for your stay! It's wonderful to watch the squirrels and blue birds - lots of lush landscape and feeders which attract the birds and squirrels. Super quiet at night and plush bed - the décor was just our style. Our only recommendation would be to check the outdoor chairs on the patio just before the guests arrive as the birds tend to make a bit of a mess, sometimes on the chairs. I would give it 5 stars, with just that one recommendation. We could live in a spot like this if it was just the two of us! Carmel Lovers

A little paradise.

  • 5 of 5

This place is so wonderful! Be careful though, the bed is so comfortable it is hard to leave. The birds and the gardens right outside the door provide your own zen room. Everything was clean and wonderful. Barb was just charming. You can't go wrong here.

Perfect romantic getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was surrounded by lush plants and trees and we approached, and it had a private, intimate feel. We were welcomed with a lovely note and bottle of wine. The cottage was even better in reality than in the photos. The bed is luxuriant and the abode is comfortable in every way. Snacks, chocolates, bottled water, guidebooks and tips for tourists, and a keurig with plenty of coffee all came in handy as we spent our days either relaxing together, exploring Carmel, or hiking Point Lobos. There is a full kitchen with everything needed to eat in if desired, which we did for our first night. Barb is friendly, welcoming, and helpful, but does not intrude upon her guests at all--rather she waits to greet them as they arrive or head out on their outings. This cottage was the perfect spot for celebrating our 20th anniversary, and I hope we get to return one day.
