About Cheryl Assemi

My family and I have lived in the area since 2008. Purchasing, remodeling and restoring Home Port Cottage was a labor of love which took most of 2012 to complete and something we strive to maintain. We want it to look the way, we felt, it always should have.

Cheryl Assemi purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Cheryl Assemi chose Carmel

For us, it was love at first sight. Home Port and our other 4 listings (Tradewinds 938557, Home Port 938549, Moon Gate 938556 and Sky Way 938553) reside on one property, collectively called the Carmel Cottage Inn. The cottages are full time vacation rentals with hotel status, which allows us to rent by the night. The gardens and patios are designed to give each cottage a feeling of privacy. The proximity of our cottages, patios and gardens to each other, as well as to the beach and downtown Carmel, make them equally ideal for a single cottage rental or for larger groups, family reunions, etc. To keep the houses fresh for longer visits, we arrange for periodic light housekeeping for stays of 3 nights or longer.

What makes this cottage unique

Built in the 1940's, Home Port Cottage is a charming little home away from home. With it's hand stenciled wood floors, the rose garden next to the patio, or sinking back into the couches at the end of an eventful day. We hope our guests will love Home Port Cottage as much as we do.

Wonderful Getaway

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 5 days as part of our 25th Wedding Anniversary celebration. We found the cottage to be cozy and comfortable and loved the close proximity to the beach for walks at sunset. We would definitely come back!

Fantasic Location

  • 5 of 5

I rented this cottage for myself, husband, and two small girls. It was perfect. There was plenty of room for all of us (baby in a pack n play and 3 year old in toddler bed on the floor) in the one bedroom. The furnishings were great. The other cottages are close by on the property, but you don't really notice them. The landscaping makes this unit feel very private. And, it's one block from the beach!! You can hear the ocean from outside. You can also walk to town. So convenient. We will definitely come back.

Beautiful cottage one block up from the Carmel beach and 2 blocks in from Ocean Are. The cottage has a nice kitchen, beautiful back yard and we had our own parking spot. This is a great place for family or a couple , we loved the location and the privacy of the property. Very clean and cozy. We will come back again next year.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week, and it was just right. We had one maintenance issue, but it was taken care of immediately after we called about it. The house and grounds are impeccable!

A delightful little piece of heaven.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this charming cottage for the weekend with a girlfriend and her 2 year old daughter. It truly is a piece of heaven. The garden is just beautiful, the property is lovely, and the house it self was just so cute and quaint. Great bedroom and living room. Kitchen is lovely and well stocked. Great place to sit outside in the garden, and easy location a block from the beach and a few blocks from town. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay, and will probably come back again.

Like a Little Dollhouse

  • 5 of 5

Wow, where do I begin? We spent three nights recently at the Home Port cottage and had a wonderful stay. There were four of us, including my husband and two children (6 and 8 years old). The property was kid-friendly and beautifully maintained. The gardens surrounding the property were so colorful and inviting; we ate outside on the patio for lunch, enjoying the sound of the ocean and beautiful flowers. The house is close to the beach, a quick walk to shopping and restaurants. We've stayed in many, many vacation rentals before and there are several great things that stand out about this one. First, if you have kids, its pretty awesome that there are not a ton of knick-knacks everywhere for you to worry about (trust me, we've stayed in places that are OVER decorated, and its a pain). Home Port was just right: tasteful and comfortable. There were a lot of closets so you could put away all of your suitcases and really feel at home. The kitchen was super clean and the window over the sink faced the street so you could have fun people-watching while washing dishes (not that I needed to wash a lot of dishes, since we ate out a lot). When we arrived late the first night, we had trouble getting the code right to let ourselves in, however, that wasn't a problem at all because we called the phone number that was provided and were helped right away. It was a snap! The cottage was so "Carmel," it was like staying in a little dollhouse. We would certainly like to return some day soon! Highly recommended!!

Owner's Response: Hi Stacia, Thank you for taking the time to review Home Port! I'm glad you liked it. We noticed early on that people need room to spread out their own things, so we purposely kept the knick knacks to a minimum. We would love to have you back again! Best regards, Cheryl
