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 Golden Rectangle
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.

Adorable cottage with super location!
My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed staying here. It’s proximity to the beach & Ocean Ave were perfect! Cheryl was a wonderful host, making sure all our needs were met & leaving us a lovely welcome gift. Highly recommend & look forward to staying here again in the future!
Small but perfect for two people!
This tiny cottage was beautifully and thoughtfully decorated and outfitted. They thought of almost of every need we would have - from fresh towels and toiletries to emergency items like a battery powered lantern in the odd event the power went out (which it didn't). There was even a little goodie bag waiting for us at check in with a few Carmel guidebooks, some nuts and sparkling apple cider. I think the only thing we missed was having a washer and dryer and a garbage disposal. We loved our stay here and would love to stay here again!
Great location for golfers
A very tidy and spacious property that allowed us to wander the village and walk to the golf with ease Found some good restaurants and pubs
Didn’t find a dishwasher or laundry but everything else at your finger tips.
Thank you for the review.

Perfect location and spotless
The Home Port property was spotless and perfectly maintained for a longer stay. The host provides local coffee, nuts, guides and a stocked kitchen. It was a warm and welcoming home, and we look forward to returning.
Thank you for the kind review.
We are glad you liked what we provided in the cottage.
Charming and Cozy Space Near the Ocean
We're already thinking about when we'll be able to visit again! The cottage is only a block from the ocean and a short walk to shops and restaurants, and the space was cozy and felt like home. The kitchen had everything we needed for simple meals, and we used the fireplace every evening when the fog rolled in. We loved it!
Thank you for the nice review. we are so glad it felt like home for you!
Lovely Cottage Near the Beach
I enjoyed my stay in the Home Port. It was very well located just a block off the beach and the beginning of the scenic view drive for walking. The cottage was clean and well appointed for a long term stay with a kitchen well equipped. The grounds were very well maintained which made you feel that the owners, managers and staff wanted their quests to feel special and at home. The only suggestion I have is that screens somehow be included in the windows. I realize the 1940s cottage windows weren't built for screens. There must be some kind of solution. It was unfortunate that we had to close up the windows each night when we chose this location because it was so close to the beach in order to hear the surf throughout the night. I hope to be back.
Thank you for the kind review, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. I don't know if you saw that one of the windows vented. It doesn't have a screen, but could have been slightly vented to allow the sound to come in.
Home Port is set in the beautiful garden of the Carmel Cottage Inn, located in Carmel-by-the-Sea. There are nearby restaurants of all cuisine, ideal shopping and boutiques, art galleries, beach, scenic walks and drives, golf and so much more!
The surrounding area is full of activities: restaurants, horseback riding and wineries in Carmel Valley, the wharf and the Monterey Aquarium in Monterey, the light house and scenery in Pacific Grove, the coast drive to Big Sur.
...just one block away from Carmel Beach and a few blocks away from downtown Carmel.
