                                                            This was our second time to stay here. We love this place and hope to come again. The cottages are cute and comfortable, the property is awesome, the beach and the views are amazing, the state park next door is fabulous.

                                                            The Happy Travelers

                                                            Carol A.

                                                            Our favorite place to vacation and we travel a lot. It's like returning to historic California circa 1900. Awesome views of Point Lobos and Monestary Beach and adjacent to a secluded trail which meanders along what has to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Newly renovated kitchen, new sofa & chair and queen bed. Very cozy. Always sad to leave but will always come back.

                                                            Owner's Response:

                                                            Thank You so much for your nice comments. We certainly appreciate your wonderful and respectful care of our Abalone Cottage. We look forward to many happy returns.

                                                            Jeanne B.The Gold Country, California

                                                            Even for a person who has lived most of my life on the coast, staying at the Abalone Cottage was an incredibly experience. To have the Pacific Ocean as part of the front yard is so seldom experienced that it was all we could do to tear ourselves away from the view to do anything else. The cottage is immaculately maintained both inside and out, no small task for a home on the water. The furniture is extremely comfortable, the kitchen had everything I could possibly need, the linens were wonderful, more hidden in plain sight storage space was discovered every day, lanterns and flashlights were conveniently placed should we lose power (we didn't) and wood available should we want to make a fire. The showers were great, the bathroom spotless, plenty of extra towels for shower or the beach and even an apartment size washer/dryer was provided. There is nothing more we could have asked for. We were in love and truly hope to return next year.

                                                            Everything and More....

                                                            The cottage was perfect. Beautiful view, peace and quiet, accessible to numerous hiking trails and historical to boot. Definitely a one of a kind location. The owners of the property are so nice. I arrived in a complete state of stress burn out and left with a smile on my face; relaxed and ready to take on the world again. It's close to all the tourist action but tucked away from it. I will definitely be returning to this very special place.

                                                            This is a truly unique cottage to have a vacation. Its location is very special. We awoke to the sounds of the ocean and bay every morning. We enjoyed our coffee outside viewing the sea life. Grey Whales, otters, seals, dolphins, pelicans, gulls, and ducks frequented the bay on a continual basis. The light conditions played on the rock cliffs of Point Lobos State Reserve. Sunsets were always looked forward to sipping regional wine. The accessibility of the cottage to the town of Carmel-by-the-sea was fantastic. We would gladly stay here in the future.

                                                            Simply a remarkable property setting in one of the most beautiful spots on earth. Having visited here for over 25 years, each stay is a reminder of why we always expectantly await our next. All who have visited us here are envious.
