We moved to Carmel in 1964 and never turned back. We love our home in this special place we call Paradise. We brought up our four daughters here and moved to the Highlands twenty-five years ago to enjoy the magnificent ocean views and serenity. My husband is a writer and I'm a Coach for families of children with special educational needs. We enjoy the arts and fine dining found within minutes of our home. We walk daily in our neighborhood and are always inspired by the natural surroundings of the beautiful Carmel Highlands. Our daughters and some of our grandchildren live nearby. They stayed in this small, quaint, artistic community to enjoy the friendly ambiance and the many outdoor activities the Central Coast offers. One of our daughters and her husband have a sailboat, where they enjoy day sailing and whale watching on the Monterey Bay. From every visitor's perspective, our little corner of the world beckons vacationers to return again and again.

Lovely home and outdoors.
Very comfortable home, Judy was a helpful host. She provided written information about great walks and restaurantsand spoke with us
Great ocean views, close to town, this Carmel gem is tucked away in a small part of paradise. Fully stocked and romantic...
Charming getaway for nature lovers
This was the perfect place to stay for those who do not enjoy the hotel experience. Judy has made this little gem of a home on her property very comfortable. We arrived hungry and really appreciated the basket of food and fruit that was left for us. The cottage is decorated nicely, has all the amenities and the bedroom upstairs was huge with a wonderful view of the ocean. We could hear the sound of the waves and were able to sleep in because it was so relaxing. The location in Carmel Highlands is a wonderful gateway for those wanting to explore Big Sur and Point Lobos State Reserve.
It was delightful!
This Cottage is absolutely delightful. The view is gorgeous, the owner is gracious, and the cottage is very comfortable. We had full busy days and it was nice to come "home" for a glass of wine on the deck. There is so much to do in the extended area and I would suggest that you make the most of it.

Superb stay in Carmel Highlands!
Judy was terrrific with communications before arrival, greeted us when arrived, and had lists of things to do and places to eat, as well as a welcoming basket of wine and goodies! The cottage was spacious, clean, and well appointed. We enjoyed the nice and quiet location in Carmel Highlands, which was convenient to the beautiful Point Lobos Park and Big Sur. Grocery store and other amenities close by. We would definitely stay here again!
Tranquility with a view
Judy is a wonderful and kind owner. We are a family of four and the bedroom is huge with beautiful views of the ocean and the mountains. The drive to Big Sur was amazing! The aquarium was great... wish we could stay longer and hope to come back here. We made breakfast at home and enjoyed the view!!
