California Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Behind a charming garden gate, through your own private entrance is a cozy retreat conveniently located just 1 mile from the village of Carmel-By-The-Sea. Our very spacious studio is a pleasant walk or quick drive to exceptional restaurants, shops & galleries and beautiful beaches and all that Carmel and that the Monterey Peninsula has to offer.

Our studio is tastefully done with warm Provencal colors. The king size bed is so cozy with alpaca pillow top and down comforter. You'll enjoy a quiet & peaceful night's sleep and wake up rested for a great day's adventure.

Enjoy having your own favorite coffee or tea on the patio bistro table with some great pastries from the popular local bakeries.. In the late afternoon a glass of wine from from the own local award winning wineries along with some cheeses.

Enjoy a perfect get-away for a birthday, anniversary or special week-end or week.

The perfect cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The most beautiful, quaint and lovely cottage we have ever stayed in! This was the perfect place to stay for the last four days on our honeymoon! Perfectly nestled away in Carmel conveniently located to everything you want to see and do! Barb's passion and love are in the details in the cottage, and it was everything we had hoped for and more! I highly recommend staying here whether it is for a short get away or a long stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Carmel and all of Barb's recommendations guided us to great restaurants, scenic views and shops. This cottage was just perfect, and with the most comfortable bed ever! Thank you for being such wonderful hosts and we hope to return!

Paradise in Carmel!

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay in this enchanting, peaceful, beautiful cottage and it won't be our last! As close to perfection as you could ask for in one of the most glorious spots on this plant: Carmel, CA. As much as I want to share with all of you, I would love to keep this gem to ourselves! From the impeccable decor inside to the lovely serenity of the flower-bird-squirrel filled garden outside the sliding glass doors, pretty hard for my wife and myself to find a fault! Oh, I guess there is one fault: we can't be there 365 days a year!

A treasure! Truly amazing cottage...

  • 5 of 5

Barb is a wonderful host and her cottage is the most beautiful, well-appointed, and magical little cottage we've stayed in on VRBO. No detail is overlooked; the cottage is immaculate with cozy and elegant design choices throughout.

Look no further, if this place is available you should book it immediately. We can't imagine a better place to stay. Highly recommended!

Lovely, quiet spot

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at Barb's cottage. It is outfitted with everything ( and then some ) you might need. The large extremely comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen, ( although we only used for breakfast as there are so many incredible restaurants nearby ), including lots of snacks, waters, and a lovely bottle of wine. As a former concierge, Barb knows how to take care of her guests, and does just that. She obviously put a great deal of thought and care into this beautiful cottage. We loved watching all the birds using the many bird feeders, and the beautiful orchids growing in abundance. Thanks, Barb. We hope to visit again soon.

Majestic Carmel Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cottage exceeded all expectations! It is its own separate unit behind the owners house. It is beautifully updated and super charming. The bed was extremely comfortable and it was nice to have all the comforts of home while on vacation.
