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.

About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose Central Coast California

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.

What makes this cottage unique

What is is that they say that makes something great???? Location, Location, Location....and we have just that!

EXTRAORDINARY OWNER and Cottage

  • 5 of 5

As far as my husband and I are concerned, the "Cottage of the Sea" has no rivals when it comes to extraordinary attention from Jann, the property owner, and a seaside cottage jewel. Upon arriving at the cottage in the dark after a long drive, an immediate serenity enveloped us once we entered the back door--the kind where you notice your shoulders relax and you experience an "aaahhh" moment. The cottage is beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable with pride of ownership beaming throughout. Once we got settled and opened the refrigerator to store groceries, a well chilled bottle of Meridian chardonnay was waiting for us--unnecessary, but PERFECT! If the bottle of wine was not already enough, Jann remembered we were celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary and had a dangerously decadent chocolate mousse cake delivered the following day! (Again, PERFECT!) Our two dogs were pretty excited about the property, too! They had plenty of room to roam and sniff in the gorgeous yard and nap on the sunny deck. They couldn't get enough walks around the quiet, peaceful neighborhood which yielded several curious and friendly dogs. I cannot recall hearing any cars passing by during our stay or any noise during the day or night. Needless to say, everyone slept well! When we returned home there was a package from Jann in our mail: an anniversary gift of a beautiful silver hammered frame to commemorate our weekend of celebration! (AGAIN--absolutely unnecessary, but PERFECT!) Without question, we will be returning to this cottage!

Lovely cottage and super responsive owner

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the cottage this February. It's very comfortable and decorated very nicely. The area is fabulous and the cottage is conveniently located in a charming neighborhood. The front deck is a nice place to sit and read. The whole area of Carmel and Monterey lost power from a rain storm when we were visiting. Jann was right on it - checking in with us and her handyman - getting updates from the power company for us etc. She could not have been more helpful and had a cake dropped off to us for our trouble - very considerate and delicious! Only wish we could have stayed longer.

My Favorite Place

  • 5 of 5

I have returned to the cottage for 7 years. I travel a great distance to do so. The reason is mainly because Jann is such an incredible hostess and is very attentive to each guest. The home is wonderful, and the bed is amazing. You truly will not want for anything there. The area is probably one of the most beautiful spots in the US. Point Lobos and the town of Carmel and the wonderful beach are within 5-15 minutes. I am so thankful that my well behaved dogs are welcome. It makes the drive from Colorado well worth it!

We have had a great time staying at the Cottage two years in a row now. There was even a tasty 'welcome back' surprise waiting for us this year! What wonderful hosts! And what a scenic and spectacular coastal location!

Cottage By The Sea

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the cottage-by-the sea. Jann made our anniversary extra special for us and was a most gracious and generous host! The cottage was better than advertised, comfortable, quiet and serene all with a perfect location. Our trip was memorable, relaxing and filled with fun and beauty. When we next visit this beautiful part of California, we will definitely plan to stay at the Cottage-by-the-Sea!
