OUR CALENDAR IS NOT IN USE. PLEASE CALL OR EMAIL US FOR AVAILABILITY. (SEE BOX ABOVE). WE HAVE FOUND THIS TO BE MORE HELPFUL IN ANSWERING ANY QUESTIONS AND IT ALLOWS US TO GET TO KNOW OUR GUESTS ON A MUCH MORE PERSONAL LEVEL. WE LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU & WELCOMING YOU TO OUR COTTAGE BY THE SEA.
If you are looking for a quiet place to rest your bones & recharge your batteries...this is the place. It is a 700 sq ft cottage on 13,000 square feet of land with beautiful views of the surrounding Monterey Pines and Oaks.
The cottage has all the ''creature comforts'' of your own home including a complete fully equipped kitchen....but if cooking is not on the agenda for the day, no need to start the car just enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner at the 5 star restaurants of the Highlands Inn. It is just a quick 2 minute walk away.
If staying in is your style, you can BBQ & watch your favorite TV/sports program on the 42' HD flat screen TV or sit on the front patio w/ your beverage of choice & enjoy a partial view of the ocean & the south side of famous Point Lobos State Park...or you can take a short peaceful walk to catch the beauty of the crashing waves on the coast at sunset....whatever you choose to do...you will be glad you stayed at the Cottage by the Sea to relax & enjoy.
What Is Great About Us!: What is is that they say that makes something great???? Location, Location, Location....and we have just that! Our home offers the quiet and the serenity with the views, the vistas, the crashing waves and the majesty of the pines and oaks. Our little cottage's location is seemingly so far away for the peace and relaxation we all seek...yet so close at hand for excellent dining and shopping in Carmel by the Sea, hiking at Point Lobos State Park, driving 17 mile at Pebble Beach, listening and watching the 'lone bagpiper' come down the fairway at Spanish Bay at sunset, visiting Monterey's Ocean Aquarium and wharf, dining at the Highlands Inn (HI) 5-star restaurants and/or listening to jazz/light entertainment in the HI Great Room while enjoying the beauty of the Monterey Coastline...a little piece of paradise located perfectly to suit all your needs.
We bought this place in April of 2009 and completely remodeled the property with the idea of reselling it...but the more time we spent on the property working the more we fell in love with the beauty and peacefulness it provided. We changed our minds (thank goodness!) and realized that this was a 'little jewel' that we could not let go...so we share it with you and hope you find the same feeling of joy and tranquility that we have come to know and enjoy during our (and your) stays here.
The Owner purchased this cottage in 2009
We have visited the Carmel area and the Highlands Inn for years and always wanted to be able to live in the area...we were fortunate to come across this home in 2009 and turn it into a great getaway for us (and now or you) and a permanent place for us to land in the future. We loved the idea of being so close at hand for all the 'cultural things' we enjoy and yet felt when we turned into our driveway we were definitely away from it all.

My husband and I stayed in this cottage for three nights as a part of our California road trip. We could not have been happier with our experience. The location was perfect for hiking in Big Sur, seeing Point Lobos, and exploring downtown Carmel or Monterey. The cottage itself had wonderful amenities and Jann went out of her way to make sure we felt welcomed. Everything was clean and in good shape. In general, one of the best rental experience we've ever had!
I came up to Carmel with 2 friends to stay for the weekend and this cozy cottage went way beyond our expectations. It was one of the most comfortable rentals I've stayed at. It was clean, cozy, and private. All the amenities you could want are included. There are several sitting areas on the property and they are all unique and enjoyable. We made a fire in the outdoor fire pit and it was a beautiful and lovely experience. There is a nice walk to get a fantastic view of the scenery. I will definitely stay here on my next trip!
What a wonderful find, beautiful location and such a comfortable stay. There was everything at the cottage you would need, the owners were so thoughtful. Close to Carmel and Big Sur and a short walk to the Highlands Inn and two great restaurants. We will be back.
We loved our stay at the beautifully furnished cabin. My wife especially liked the flowers. Everything was perfect and we felt right at home.
Thanks for letting us stay in your place, we certainly would like to come back and can highly recommend it.
I stumbled upon this wonderful cottage and Jann over 6 years ago. I love it and her so much I have returned every year since. If you don't have pet's you will love this cottage, it is clean and very comfortable. If you have pets you will really, really appreciate that Jann offers this wonderful cottage to us and our furry friends. I love this place so much I drive over 1000 miles to visit. The cottage is beautifully appointed, and has a wonderful kitchen and the most amazingly comfortable bed. The neighbors are friendly, and on the VERY rare occasion there is a problem, Jann gets it taken care of within an hour. Can't go wrong if you book this place. I only wish I was there instead of you!!
Delightful very well stocked and decorated cottage in Carmel Highlands in a serene quiet setting. Very close to Point Lobos State Reserve for hiking and beautiful photography. Our host, Jann, provided an outstanding anniversary welcome for us and we felt immediately at home and would have liked to have met her as she seemed a friend already. We would love to return again each year and hope to include it in our future travels. Our weather was perfect for October with warm days and cool evenings. We enjoyed the ambience of both the deck and the back patio/garden areas. The parking and access to the cottage were very good. Jann was always available to answer questions and provide additional information or help when needed. Thank you for an outstanding stay.
Close to Point Lobos State Park, the Monterey Wharf and Monterey Bay Aquarium, TOR house tours on Fri/Sat only, wine room tastings available in the Carmel and Carmel Valley area and many special events in the area (ie: Mazda Raceway & Laguna Seca/Motocross/ MotoGP, Concours d'Elegance, Monterey Jazz Festival, Monterey Film Festival, AT&T Pro Am Golf) scheduled throughout the year. Visit and/or tour the Carmel Mission and the Carmelite Monastery just off Highway 1....and don't forget about Big Sur being so close...Lots to do and see.
