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.

AMAZING!!! Such a great little cottage. Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I had such an amazing time at Barb's cottage. She herself is wonderful, and provided us with an entire desk filled with activities in the area. The cottage itself is great, very cozy and with all the amenities one would need. The location is awesome, only a 3 minute drive to downtown Carmel. Would definitely stay there again!

Wonderful stay at the cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent our post holiday at this cottage. It was very quiet and private which we enjoyed alot. The kitchen and bathroom

was very enjoyable to use. The kitchen was lovely and was stocked with all the appliances and utensils to cook your own meal.

It was a bit further walk to town then we anticipated, but it was fine once we decided to drive into town sometimes. I especially enjoyed

the comfortable chair to read in and quiet of the cottage. We spent the days in downtown Carmel doing the regular activities (e.g.eating and shopping). It was a lovely stay and we would like to return to the cottage again!

Outstanding cottage with thoughtful touches

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved the cottage. Barbara put so much thoughtfulness and care into decorating as well as the little things like leaving us a bottle of wine. We stayed for three nights in early December, and she even had a table-top Christmas tree in the cottage. I am now searching Pottery Barn's website for those plush robes she has in the cottage. Since we had no room to pack ours, we really appreciated them. The kitchen has everything you could wish, even coffee and hot chocolate! The patio was gorgeous, and I loved seeing the birds and so many flowers in bloom in December. We're from the mid-Atlantic, and it's colder here. If my grandchildren were not living on the East Coast, I could happily move to California. This was my first visit, and I loved it.

Cozy and Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I took my boyfriend to Carmel for a weekend of golf, delicious meals, and relaxation for his birthday. We had a great time and found the cottage to be a perfect place to rest our heads. The well equipped kitchen allowed for us to cook breakfast, so we didn't have to go out for every meal. The guest cottage was clean, well appointed, and met all our needs. We were in close proximity to downtown Carmel and took inexpensive Uber rides to dinner each night. Overall, we had a great experience. Barb was very sweet and thought of all the finishing touches: bottle of wine upon arrival, snacks, coffee/hot chocolate/apple cider pods, and bottles of water. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to visiting again!

wonderful stay in Carmel

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 3 month daughter and I stayed in this adorable little cottage in Carmel for three nights a little family vacay. The pictures don't do this place justice. Barbara has thought of everything- from the fully stocked kitchen, the bathroom with all the amenities to the closet/office chalk full of travel books about the area. The only thing we didn't like was the mattress- it was so soft that we sunk right in so it was hard to sit up in bed. We are used to a firmer mattress. But some people love these really soft mattresses so it's just a personal preference. Overall, it was an amazing getaway for an even better price. We would definitely return.
