Overview

Central Coast California Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 4

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.

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!

Cozy and comfortable cottage with all the amenities.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The bed is so comfortable! The kitchen was well appointed and had everything we needed. We very much enjoyed our stay. Jann was wonderful, easily reachable and a great owner who did everything to ensure we enjoyed our stay. The neighborhood is quiet and a short drive to Carmel-By-the-Sea. I would certainly return to the cottage to enjoy Carmel, Big Sur and all the state parks that are close by.

A WELCOME RETURN

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation home if your traveling to Carmel. We have stayed at the cottage several times before and will be staying again upon our return to Carmel. The owner, Jann, is great and the cottage itself is cozy and comfy with all amenities. It is a pet friendly home which is a plus +. You will definitely enjoy your time at the Cottage.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is PERFECT!!! It has everything!!! It is in a Perfect area of the Highlands in Carmel! I highly recommend this most beautiful, relaxing, warm, all updated amenities, breathtaking views/sceneries & full of love Cottage! This Cottage by the Sea is MAGICAL! It is close to everything, downtown Carmel, Carmel Center Place, Carmel by the Sea beach, Big Sur, it's walking distance to the beach, a driveway way to the Hyatt for evening dancing, etc. I will definitely return and recommend it to all of my friends and family. The owner is fantastic and clearly has expressed her love for her cottage throughout her lovely home and truly cares about her guests' comfort. Best customer care ever! This cottage is special and unique!

Wonderful Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late in the evening and immediately relaxed upon entering the home. It is so adorable and felt like home. They even had several bouquets of fresh flowers around the house. It is a beautiful home in a beautiful setting. We walked to the restaurant and lounge at the Hyatt every night. The house is clean and very comfortable and Jann was extremely responsive and helpful. I would highly recommend this house to anyone I know that will be visiting the area and we will be returning any time in the future that we travel to the area. Hopefully that will be often.
