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.

Cute and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, cozy cottage. Nice size master and really large family room. Bathroom is small but everything works and the entire cottage is very clean. The grounds are beautiful and emaculant. It may be even less than a block to the beach and a very easy walk into town.

A Carmel Gem!!

  • 5 of 5

My last visit to this charming cottage was 55 years ago. My Father rented this cottage for our family's summer visits to Carmel. For our 40th wedding anniversary, my husband and I took a journey back in time, and relived wonderful memories.

To begin with, the location is outstanding, being just one block off Scenic and 1 1/2 blocks from Ocean Ave. The owner, Cheryl, has brought this adorable cottage into the 21st century, providing every amenity that one could imagine. Yet she has maintained the original charm of by-gone years. From the extremely comfortable king-size bed, to the quaint stenciling on the hardwood floors, the attention to detail is outstanding. You can also enjoy the beautiful yard, filled with roses, daisies, and bougainvillea.

Now that we have rediscovered Home Port, we will be returning whenever time provides an escape. Thank you Cheryl for a memorable vacation!!

Relaxing, quaint cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a much needed, relaxing vacation to Carmel. The cottage was perfect for the two of us, and the location was awesome.....one block from the beach and up the hill to town. The microwave did not work when we got there, but a new one was brought within 2 hours after my call....great service! We definitely will book this again!

Home Port Cottage was wonderful and close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was a dream come true. Sometimes on home away.com it's hit or miss and this is definitely a hit. Snow white like cottage with everything you need. Beautiful yard and garden with sitting area. Short walk to town and very, very close to the white, sandy beach...like a 5 minute walk...tops. Gas fireplace handy even in summer. Highly recommended!!!

Owner's Response: Hi Cynthia, Thank you for the kind review. Your Snow White comment made me smile. The first time I walked through the gardens, Alice in Wonderland came to mind! Best regards, Cheryl

Fabulous Cottage and Location

  • 5 of 5

This cottage appears to be straight out of a Pottery Barn magazine. The accommodations were comfortable and the place is more than well kept up. We found the location very conveniently located a block from the beach and a few blocks from downtown Carmel-by-the-sea. Can't wait to spend time here again!

Owner's Response: Hi Michelle, Thank you for the kind review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and approve of our decorating! LOL...only the couches and a few of the pillow are from Pottery Barn because we love sitting in their couches. Best regards, Cheryl
