Overview

About the property

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.

Cottage perfection

  • 5 of 5

Summary:

-Pros: Comfy bed, beautiful well appointed space, well stocked, private, reserved parking spot, Bathroom / shower was awesome.

-Cons: Wifi (Needs an upgrade as I was getting 0.5-1.5Mbps and it was unusable so we switched off our Wifi and ran on our cellular data)

This cottage sets the bar by which all others will be judged. Clean, well decorated (No extra stuff that didn't fit in the owners house so they just dumped it into the VRBO), stocked with more amenities than you could ask for and good access to the cottage that didn't require feeling like you're intruding on the owners main house. The owner had stocked a bottle of wine, coffee maker (K-cups galore) and snacks into the cottage before we arrived and it made us feel extra welcome. I'd link a picture of all the goodies but VRBO apparently doesn't allow that. Great location off down town that was quiet but close enough that if you wanted a good hike to town it was do-able. The grounds surrounding the cottage are lovely and very well taken care of. The one downside was the Wifi but most people won't use it and it didn't hurt out trip one bit. We'll be back

Quiet and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

Barb was a great host. She was available for recommendations but gave us our privacy. Her cottage was clean and well equipped. We enjoyed the bottle of wine she had left for us and a variety of snacks and chocolates. We definitely recommend her cottage and cannot wait to return.

So much more than a place to sleep!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our weekend stay at this charming little cottage💕 If you like what you see in the pictures, you will love it too. It is every bit as comfortable as it looks! Convenient to the shops, 17 mile drive start and Carmel Valley wineries, and wonderful for cooking a simple meal and enjoying one of your purchases from your favorite winery. Lots of great Pinot Noirs from the Santa Lucia Highlands🍷
