About the property

Studio (Sleeps 2)

Totally private. A cozy hideaway for two people in a separate building. No one above, below or next to you. Guests have complete privacy. However, your host is nearby - 'invisible but available'.

Please note that this is a small space but it's well designed and the patio provides more room and a place to sit outside. Close to downtown Carmel (ten minute walk) and west of Highway 1 in a quiet neighborhood where you feel like a local.

The weekly rate does not apply during holidays and events.

Comfy queen bed. Plush linens. Excellent high speed WiFi and cable TV.

Fridge, microwave, coffee/tea kettles, toaster & an initial supply of complimentary goodies (wine, juice, soda, snacks, coffee, candy etc.) More amenities than most hotels.

Bedroom/mini kitchenette & bath. Storage - both hanging and shelving. Room for all your stuff. Ideal for travelers who want a quiet place to relax and sleep after a busy day. You also have access to the adjacent storage space for storage of bikes, luggage, etc.

Private gated/fenced patio with bistro set - surrounded by open space, trees, birds and various other critters. The studio is surrounded by gardens.

Smoking allowed outside on the patio only.

Dedicated parking right in front.

We welcome you personally and provide a quick overview of Carmel and the peninsula.

After that you have total privacy.

Pet Policy: We welcome one dog. There is a pet fee ($20/night;cash on arrival) but no cleaning fees or other charges. Call for details.

Just minutes from Monterey and Pacific Grove & 26 miles from Big Sur.

Monterey's famous aquarium and Fisherman's Wharf is about 10 minutes by car.

We are long time Carmel residents who can share a wealth of information with you - much of it that you won't find in the guide books.

Cancellation Policy: At least thirty days full refund.

Treat your dog to a romp on Carmel's famous beach. This town is very dog friendly.

About Sylvia Savage

Long time Carmel residents -more than fifty years between us. We sometimes imagine living somewhere else but Carmel is great to come home to. So we travel...this picture was taken in Todos Santos, Mexico on the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula.

Sylvia Savage purchased this studio in 2009

Why Sylvia Savage chose Carmel

We are lucky to live here full time. Can't beat the weather, immaculate beaches, clean air, minimal traffic, European village lifestyle.

It's very Car-mellow and so safe that many residents don't even lock their doors.

What makes this studio unique

Total privacy. Easy access to everything. Excellent value. We can advise you as to the best spots for dining, hiking, shopping, etc. Feel like a local without breaking your budget.

Wonderful place to stay and explore!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Sylvia's studio. It is the perfect spot to venture up and down the amazing coast. She was very welcoming upon our arrival and took the time with us to help better understand the town and surrounding area to get the most out of our visit. The room was stocked with treats and the patio off the studio was a nice spot to sit and visit after a day of adventuring. We thoroughly enjoyed our week here and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a great little home base to explore from!

Tidy quiet dog friendly studio in traditional Carmel neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Sylvia was available, kind and helpful and we had a little yard and garden view. The picturesque walk to the central shopping area was a breeze. The studio is a perfect small and quiet space from which to enjoy the beauty of Carmel. A real find. And dog friendly.

Cosy cottage in Carmel

  • 5 of 5

Perfect little spot for two. Nicely upgraded, charming, quiet, beautiful garden setting, private patio, all the amenities one would need, warms up quickly with the wall heater, nice lighting, comfortable bed, walking distance to town down a sweet wooded trail, and great hosts! No complaints. We would definitely stay here again!

Charming, cozy cottage

Cozy and well appointed!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to Carmel for a wedding, and we loved our stay at this sweet little studio. It is small but extremely comfortable and well appointed (lots of snacks, good coffee and water bottles in the fridge were such a lovely touch!). Great neighborhood and location. Sylvia was incredibly prompt and helpful over email while we planned our trip.
